To wake up safe and sound, knowing that walking out of your house bodes no evil for you, is a right that every human should have.
Being who you are, believing in what you want, and living your life is a right that every human should have too.
Respecting everyone’s opinions and ways of life, even if you disagree with it, is a responsibility that comes with all those rights.
So how dare we call ourselves humans of the 21st century when our biggest problem today is not money or power, but demanding that everyone live it in a certain way?
No, do not delude yourself and tell me that countries are at war because of money. That is a lie. Every single innocent person who is dying, loses their life because of someone’s hatred for what they represent.
And if that’s not the most disgusting thing ever, I don’t know what is.
Tuesday, being the 27th of March was Muslim Women’s Day. So why didn’t I post something in honour of that on that day, one may ask?
The answer is simple. Whilst it’s an honour to have a day dedicated to us, I don’t fully support the idea behind it.
Because every day is a day for every woman to be special and heard and honoured. And women of every religion. And so too for men.
So for that day do I mention the #metoo campaign, the gun violence, the bloodshed of this world? Or do I leave all that and talk about what’s really bothering me?
Let’s face it The 3rd of April approaches and while for some it may be a normal day, for others, especially those in the UK, it is a day of dread.
Why? For those of you who do not know, some evil, psychopathic monsters have declared it: Punish A Muslim Day.
You may think I am joking but I do not lie. This is an actual thing.
So there are people who will be forced to cower in their homes, in the fear that their lives will be endangered for a game. Why are more people not speaking out against this? Yes, reporting the news is one thing but what about telling people how to be safe, to tell them that they are not alone? What about letting people know that these psychopaths are not going to win and that we have not survived 1400+ years only to be scared by threats on a poster?
And newsflash for these nincompoops. You are not doing a very good job of trying to drown out the surge that Islam is experiencing because if the support that people are showing to Muslims and the hundreds of new masjids being built in London is any evidence then I can safely say, you have lost your campaign before it had even begun.
Due to the horror of this campaign, another one has been launched and it has gone viral. The new, and improved, Love A Muslim Day.
So while we sit and seethe at the horrors being inflicted on all the humans of the world, we ask you to raise your hands and pray for the guidance of these terribly lost souls who have obviously gone astray and need someone to show them the way back to humanity.
Everyone is suffering so much in this world. How does anyone have the time to dedicate portions of their lives to hurting other people? What kind of sick monsters are you that you need to see others suffering to get pleasure?
I am unfortunately so used to hearing abuse against my religion and seeing people misinterpret our peaceful ways that I barely flinch. But this is taking it too far.
It’s back to the Days of Ignorance when Our Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon his soul) suffered with his followers and people would take pleasure in hurting them.
Remember, they never backed down and they came out on top.
We will not back down and one day, we too will come out on top.
Desivloggers have made a video to bring attention to this atrocity. I suggest that you watch it and be careful around this horrific time.
Yours with love
