Islam is from God. And it is for people.
That means the world can only run on Islamic principles and teachings. If it really wants to run its affairs well.
That means if you want to have any semblance of justice, fairness and decency in this world, you can only achieve it under the shadow and umbrella of Islamic teachings, regardless of whether or not you use the name of Islam.
And whether or not you give Islam credit.
One example is: sadly or happily, Islam does not allow you to cut corners in what you do.
An extension of this principle is: When someone writes something, that person alone has the right to decide what to do with it — with that piece.
Meaning, rights that accrue to authorship of any document or manuscript belong to the writer, not to bystanders, no matter how well-intentioned those bystanders may be.
So, whether or not to post on the Internet, including IslamicSolutions.Com, a piece carrying the name of someone as writer and author, that decision can be made only by the owner of that name and identity — and not by others.
That is Islam 101.
And that is also Western Culture — which in all kinds of strange and interesting ways — ended up becoming the guardian of some of the core elements of Islamic Culture such as this one.
This, unbeknownst to Muslims, and the rest of the world, is one of the secrets behind the seeming worldly success of Western Culture: the ideas, practices and principles Western Culture borrowed from Islamic Culture.
Islamic Culture flows like blood through the veins of Western Culture, even as the West, from time to time, comes up with all kinds of excuses to combat Islam and malign and defame Muslims.
How true the Qur’an is:
Enemies of God, want to extinguish God’s light with their breath.
But God insists on making his light shine in its fullest glory.
