Yip, there gonna burn some Qur’ans

Here’s some words of wisdom from someone I fell in love with him  almost the moment I met him. That’s brotherly Islamic love dear readers, not Hollywood Love. & thanks to the person who e-mail me this earlier.

Subject: Celebrating Eid and Burning the Quran by Idris Tawfiq
Asalaamu alaykum,

The more I read about the tragic events of September 11th 2001 in the United States, the more I feel that we will probably never get to the bottom of what really happened on that terrible day. What we do know for sure is that thousands of innocent people were cruelly murdered.

I think all educated and civilized people can also say with certainty that the religion of Islam itself was not responsible. Maybe misguided Muslims were involved, and their actions are to be condemned, but Islam cannot be held to blame for such an atrocity.

How sad it is, then, that a religious leader in the United States should be calling for the Quran to be burned on 11th September, calling Islam, Muhammad (pbuh) and Shariah Law as evil. On the other hand, it is very heartening to see that so many religious leaders, both in the United States and elsewhere, have made clear that such a Quran Burning Day does not represent their views at all.

How sad, too, that many misguided people will react in a violent way to such a provocation.

So how are Muslims to react to their holy book being burned? I think we should react with some Wisdom. If a whole country and its government were holding a Quran Burning Day, then Muslim leaders would be justified in reacting against that country and that government. To be quite honest, though, a small church with a congregation of only fifty people does not warrant overreaction. It is clear that they represent only themselves and a handful of bigotted people who would choose to follow them.

Instead, as Muslims, we can condemn such an insensitive and irreligious action, then try as best we can to build bridges between people of faith.

I remember last year, meeting His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America in his office in New York. The Archbishop told me that on 12th September 2001 he had gone down to Ground Zero to pay his respects, and the journalists there asked him if this atrocity did not shake his own faith. “On the contrary,” he replied. “Yesterday we witnessed here an explosion of evil. Today we are witnessing an explosion of love, as people of all faiths and of none come here to pray and to offer their condolences.”

Inshallah, this heinous Quran Burning episode can actually bring people of faith closer together, rather than driving them apart.

Happy Eid.

Idris Tawfiq

Love you Idris.

    So it’s “postponed” i.e. they want to maintain their hostility towards Islam and Muslims in general, only to be cancelled later. What may explain this? Islam was evil a few days ago but on threat of having a copy/copies of it’s book burned it is not ‘not evil’? So we can see Mr. Terry Jones’ belief in God by the fact that in the face of pressure from great sinners of men e.g. Obama and Clinton (why do you think Bill played around?) Gates etc. mean that Jones must not confront the ‘evil Islam’.

    Satan 1, Jones 0

    Did you see that guy dressed in Muslim garb that stood beside that Jones character at the press conference? *Groan* yet another Muslim plucked from the rather large que of Muslims lining up to be used by TPTB.

    Interesing that Obomber, Hitlery Clinton and Gen. Betrayus shrieked out about this…. only because it would make their pet wars against the people of Afganistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Yemem just that little bit harder (i.e. accelerate their defeat)
