MUSLIMS’ GLOBAL PERSONA.
Muslims are 1.8 billion according to a study conducted in 2015. That is about 24.1% of the global human population. The world calls them terror mongers, terrorists, and associates every social evil with them. There’s a prevalent notion rampant about them that, if there’s evil there must be Muslims behind it. It did not happen overnight.
It is compulsory upon every Muslim to learn from cradle to the grave. In Islam, knowledge has been associated with God. According to Muslims, Allah is Omniscient.
Islam has produced thousands of scientists and great new inventions. Muslims introduced history as a separate field of study. This blog is has limited space to introduce you to all the Muslim scientists and their discoveries. Please visit the link for detailed study. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_scientists_in_medieval_Islamic_world.
The global persona of Muslims was a systematic phenomenon that appeared in the global media. There was not a single country defending a common Muslim guy or speaking up for him. Every single Muslim country was entangled in a number of issues at home and international level.
Pakistani Muslims had felt the pain of their Muslim brethren like any other Muslim anywhere in the world. But all they could was Dua.
Imran Khan PM of Pakistan has taken up the task to show the real image of Muslims and Islam to the West and the rest…
WHAT IS ISLAM FOR MUSLIMS
In order to answer the question that what is Islam to Muslims, let’s first see what religion to the other fellow human beings is.
For others, religion can be a tool to connect to God, to serve humanity, to seek inner peace. To visit the church and go to the respective temples, stupas, synagogues, mandirs and so on. For Muslims, Islam is a lifestyle. Their religion tells them how to comb hair, how to welcome the newborn in the world. How to bid farewell to the departing souls. How to earn a livelihood. How to take part in politics. How to dress and how not to dress. How to walk in the streets, how to bargain in bazar. How to greet elders. How to love your near ones and how to love to hate your loved ones… (odd right? It really teaches you to hate in the loveliest of ways).
Islam urges you to learn contemporary knowledge and walk with society. Islam teaches you to when in Rome, do as the Romans. It teaches you inner peace. It teaches you how to take a bath. How to tie and untie shoelaces.
No religion in the world teaches you things to such extent I bet that. Islam teaches you dining etiquettes. It teaches you how to sip a liquid. How to hold your glass. How to bite and chew your morsel. How to ascend and descend stairs. How to sleep on rooftops. How to cover your edibles at night. It teaches you, teaches you and teaches you… are you willing to learn?
Islam is a lifestyle to Muslims. It teaches them fashion. It urges them to learn about new social trends, emerging technologies. It whispers to them that; every field of knowledge is for you to learn. Knowledge is power, knowledge is the legacy of Muslims’ first Prophet and Father, Adam (a.s) to their last Prophet Mohammad (s.a.w).
Pakistani Muslims are predictable to the global human fellows. They are unreadable. They pray for their brothers in all corners of the world. They are divided in sects and schools of thought, but they are united for the sake of Ummah according to the hadith that every Muslim is a brother to one another.
NEED FOR A SHARED ENGLISH TV CHANNEL for MUSLIM COUNTRIES
Pakistan, Turkey, and Malaysia have come up with an idea to launch a dedicated TV channel that will portray real Islam. Which will make dramas, serials, movies, documentaries, and shows for the portrayal of Islamic history and culture. The channel is aimed at fighting islamophobia and it will work on BBC pattern as PM Khan tweeted.
Turkish dramas have done wonders in Pakistan. Prior to those dramas and movies, Pakistanis had to watch Indian movies and western content which was all based on lies, fantasies and fabricated realities.
This channel will introduce the young generation with the history, Quran, Sunnah, legacies, Islamic heroes, the advent of Islam in Europe, in Turkey, in Malaysia and Pakistan. It will make them proud of their culture and unite them once again to form an Ummah.
It will dispel lies against Muslims. It will false allegations to Muslims and Islam with proof, evidence and logic. It will promote peace. It will tell the world that Muslims ruled India for almost 10 centuries but did not kill a single Hindu due to Islam. If that were a case, there would be not a single Hindu in India. Instead, the Hindu population is nearly a billion people strong after years 10 centuries of Muslim rule. No mandir has been demolished, rather Muslims introduced new languages, art, architecture, and culture that united the Hindustan.
WILL IT BE HELPFUL TO ISLAM OR MUSLIMS ANY WAY POSSIBLE?
This channel will help create and prosper peace in the world. It will bring all humans closer. Muslim societies have fewer rates than European major cities and the USA. Muslim nation is compassionate, their religion tells them that every single human being is a child of Adam and Eve so he should be considered equal. Islam teaches human rights. It teaches that do not harm children, old ones and ladies during war times.
The channel will not only help Muslims, but it will also help humanity filling the fissures of doubt. It will prompt other countries and private businessmen as well to invest in such endeavors.
It will promote new business ideas within Muslim countries. It will introduce new dressing trends and fashion and will create new industries. There is no such a TV channel right now that is portraying true Islam, the one Imran Khan is going to launch will change the world forever.
