The word Muslim means “a person who acquires peace by submitting his will to Almighty God. The role of Muslim in a non-Muslim society can be divided into two categories. The first one is the action and deeds that is related to him and the other one is the actions and the deed related to the non-Muslims.
It is essential to know that, what is compulsory for a Muslim in a Muslim society is also compulsory in a Non-Muslim society like every Muslim has to believe in Allah and worship one almighty God Allah. So a Muslim has to follow the core requirements of Islam in a Non-Muslim society too like praying five times a day, giving Zakaat etc.
In case of women, she has to wear the veil in the Non-Muslim society too. The Muslims in Non-Muslim society cannot do or follow things that are Haram in Muslim world. Like drinking alcohol and gabling is always Haram is Islam. So a Muslim has to avoid these. A Muslim in a Non-Muslim has to make peace with other so they can live in peace and harmony. The Muslim should always help the Non-Muslim society if it is required for everyone.
The Holy book of Quran is the last and final testament by Allah, which was sent to the all humanity through his last messenger Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It has guidance of a peaceful life and living for the whole humanity.
Osama Bin Laden, the synonym of terrorism has distorted the image of Islam. Only for this guy people associate Islam with terrorism. Osama repeatedly said that what he and his group Al-Qaeda do is for the sake of Islam. They are giving out totally wrong definition of Islam. They are creating chaos all around the world by killing people, vandalizing properties and so on. These are strongly forbidden in Islam as Islam has always discouraged chaos at any point of life.
Osama used Islam to shelter his wrong deeds. He repeatedly used the word Zihad to describe his works which is completely a misconception. Overtime he provoked terrorism all around the world in the name of Islam.
In the whole Quran terrorism, killing people and all these stuffs are absolutely prohibited and those who do such are supposed to get strong punishment. Osama killed people to fulfill his wish, not for the sake of Islam. He consistently insulted Islam by creating a fallacy about the most peaceful religion in the world. The Muslim scholars always leveled his actions as illegal. He did a shameless attempt to abuse the image of Islam by the destructive works against humanity.
Islam is considered to be the first religion in this earth to establish human right. Prior to this it people hardly had any concern regarding their rights. Human right was bought by the people who had power and money. Other people were treated as a commodity that were bought and sold in the market.
The poor people were treated as slaves regardless of gender. Once there were rules where female child were buried alive because they were treated as burden. There was chaos everywhere. Islam at first said that all human beings equal. It made the slavery illegal and showed the people of freedom.
In every aspect of life people were order to maintain equality and harmony among them. Each and every representative of Islam followed and encouraged others to do the same. Islam is the religion of peace and brotherhood. The Quran- the Religious book of Muslims has told- “Every Muslim is a brother of each other”.
The Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SM) along with other Prophets has showed how to maintain human right. Islam has spread the message of human rights throughout the world and if Islam is practiced properly then human rights will appear at its desired form which is yet to be achieved.
The word “fear” always associates with something negative and which is hardly appreciated. But when the fear is only for Allah the Almighty and the Creator of this universe, then it can change a human being. The fear of Allah can lead to freedom of the soul from all kinds of earthly restriction and inspire a human being to worship only Allah. The fear of Allah is the core aspect of Islam and those who do not have this are not considered as Muslim.
The fear of Allah has profound effect in every aspect of life. Those who possess the fear always follow the path showed by Holy Quran and the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SM). The fear of Allah purifies a Muslim. Those who have fear in heart they are supposed to follow every order of Allah. In this case the most important aspect is that a Muslim has to believe that Allah is one and no one can be compared to Allah.
This is been reinforced in Quran for a number of times. Apart from this, the fear of Allah will be reflected by each and every work of a Muslim which will lead them to the ultimate goal- Heaven.
