Do You Feel Pride On Being A Muslim?

Muslims around the globe are experiencing criticism from the disbelievers, especially from those disbelievers who do not posses appropriate knowledge or lack the information about Islam as a religion and Muslims to be their followers. The perspective which Muslims are thought of nowadays is never the way Islam portray our social values. Nevertheless, several sorrow experiences have forced us to stand up against the allegations put on Muslims and the reaction has caused an offensive approach towards such issues while the better way to tackle things would be to show patience and unite against the ideology made by nonbelievers.

In addition we can learn further from the Quran "They ask you concerning fighting in the Sacred Months (these are the 1st, 7th, 11th and 12th months of the Islamic calendar). Say: `Fighting therein is a great transgression but a greater transgression in the Sight of Allah is to prevent mankind from following the Way of Allah, to disbelieve in Him, to prevent access to al-Masjid al-Haram (Makkah), and to drive out its inhabitants, and polytheism is worse than killing. And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will be the dwellers of the Fire. They will abide therein forever." (Qur'an 2:217) Remember, we as Muslims should hold on to faith and patience to an utmost situation and render and attacks a failure from the disbelievers.
