One thing I learned over the years of blogging and posting on forums is that there are always going to be haters. There is not a single thing anyone can do to please everyone. Why do we even have to please everyone? We have to please Allah and that’s it. By pleasing Allah we’ll be pleasing all those who matter to us the most (parents, spouse, family, friends, etc.). So why bother with the haters?
Where did this post come from? Well just look around us, from the news to the blogs, Islam and Muslims are always being attacked. Whether its non-Muslim vs. Muslim or Muslim vs. Muslim, it’s been there and will be there. Regarding non-Muslims doing the hate, well that’s not anything new and we can’t really do much because Allah says they will always hate us. Just ignore them.
Muslim hate Muslim
Why do Muslims hate on each other so much? I have a theory that we are insecure about our own beliefs. We don’t believe our way is the right way until we can prove it to someone who doesn’t follow what we believe in. The ones being attacked then feels threatened, not by the attacker but by those who will listen to the attacker, so they counter-attack. Then the attacker is counter-attacked (is that even a word?) and feels that he is also threatened for the exact same reason as the other side.
It just keeps going on back and forth from there. Now add a few hundred years and you have the history of Muslim haters. Unity will not stop this, because even unity is hated on.
There is not really any solutions because this is part of the dunya. This is how Allah created us. We just have to control and contain it to our best ability. Ignore it and just keep on walking. If you have firm belief in what you believe in then you don’t need to worry what others say because you are on the right path.
Lastly, on The Day it’ll be “everyman for themselves” so it wouldn’t matter how much hating or “defending” or “refuting” or “responding” you did. It’ll be how much loving or “praying” or “fasting” you did.
