Some have commented to me saying that Muslims do not lose due to the fact that many westerners convert to Islam. Their argument seems to be a bit off. The reason westerners convert to Islam is that they read the Quran, and despite of how the Muslims manage their countries, the westerners still are led to Islam by Allah.
This is not due to work by the Muslims themselves in general.
Look at the so called Muslim countries; full of corruption, tax evasion, prostitution, poverty, illiteracy, pollution, and any vice you may care to think of. Is this a model of society, a model for others to look at and to be impressed by the love, care and intelligence their countries are governed?
Are you impressed?
I am not. Look at our beloved prophet, pbuh, he made a model country while alive in the framework of what was possible at the time. Think of what he would have done for
We seem so proud to be a Muslim, I see very little to be proud of, BUT we born as Muslims should be VERY humble and grateful that we were born in a Muslim family. I am very sure that many of us would not seek the knowledge and have such an open heart that Allah would lead us to Islam if we were born in an infidel family.
My article was about why we Muslim loose, why our societies are not the kind other societies look at for inspiration. We are Muslims in name and in ritual observances, but we do not live and organize ourselves according to Allah’s Deen found solely in the Holy Quran.
So let us all try to be proud of what we can achieve as Muslims, to live according to the examples given in the Quran. I am sure that if enough of us do that in ANY country a change will come.
