If Islam Is The Best Religion, Then Why Muslims Are Different From Its Teachings


1. Media maligns Islam

a. Islam is without doubt the best religion but the media is in the hands of the

westerners who are afraid of Islam. The media is continuously broadcasting

and printing information against Islam. They either provide misinformation

about Islam, misquote Islam or project a point out of proportion, if any.

b. When any bomb blasts take place anywhere, the first people to be accused

without proof are invariably the Muslims. This appears as headlines in the

news. Later, when they find that non-Muslims were responsible, it appears

as an insignificant news’ item.

c. If a 50 year old Muslim marries a 15 year old girl after taking her permission, it

appears on the front page but when a 50 year old non-Muslim rapes a 6 year

old girl, it may appear in the news in the inside pages as ‘Newsbriefs’. Everyday

in America on an average 2,713 cases of rape take place but it doesn’t appear

in the news, since it has become a way of life for the Americans.

2. Black sheep in every community:

I am aware that there are some Muslims who are dishonest, unreliable, who

cheat, etc. but the media projects this as though only Muslims are involved in

such activities. There are black sheep in every community. I know Muslims who

are alcoholics and who can drink most of the non-Muslims under the table.

3. Muslims best as a whole:

Inspite of all the black sheep in the Muslim community, Muslims taken on the

whole, yet form the best community in the world. We are the biggest community

of tee-totallers as a whole, i.e. those who don’t imbibe alcohol. Collectively, we

are a community which gives the maximum charity in the world. There is no

community as a whole in the world which can show even a candle to the

Muslims where modesty is concerned; where sobriety is concerned; where

human values and ethics are concerned.

4. Don’t judge a car by its driver:

If you want to judge how good is the latest model of the “Mercedes” car and a

person who does not know how to drive sits at the steering wheel and bangs up

the car, who will you blame? The car or the driver? But naturally, the driver. To

analyze how good the car is, a person should not look at the driver but see the

ability and features of the car. How fast is it, what is its average fuel

consumption, what are the safety measures, etc. Even if I agree for the sake of

argument that the Muslims are bad, we can’t judge Islam by its followers? If you

want to judge how good Islam is then judge it according to its authentic sources,

i.e. the Glorious Qur’an and the Sahih Hadith.

5. Judge Islam by its best follower i.e. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh):

If you practically want to check how good a car is put an expert driver behind the

steering wheel. Similarly the best and the most exemplary follower of Islam by

whom you can check how good Islam is, is the last and final messenger of God,

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Besides Muslims, there are several honest and

unbiased non-Muslim historians who have acclaimed that prophet Muhammad

was the best human being. According to Michael H. Hart who wrote the book,

‘The Hundred Most Influential Men in History’, the topmost position, i.e. the

number one position goes to the beloved prophet of Islam, Muhammad (pbuh).

There are several such examples of non-Muslims paying great tributes to the

prophet, like Thomas Carlyle, La-Martine, etc.
