Islam stands for justice and not revenge
By: Abdullah Hakim Quick
Even though insults and attacks are being hurled at Muslims by right wing bigots and secular extremists, Islam does not condone the killing of innocents or even random assassination of people who have drawn pictures or made statements against Allah and His Messenger. The killings in Paris today have to be condemned by the whole Muslim world and extremism has to be opposed. Almighty Allah tells us:
“Invite (all) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: surely your Lord knows best who have strayed from His Path and who have received guidance.” (16:125)
A true Islamic State should be a place of peace, stability and tolerance; not chaos, hated and wanton killing!!!
Here is the peace and beauty that an Muslim street should give.

KABUL – Afghani Muslim scholars have praised plans by the Saudi Kingdom to establish the country’s largest Islamic Center in Kabul, a project that has raised both hopes and fears in this land locked country.
“We hope that establishment of the centre by Saudi Arabia will not amplify all those madrassas in Afghanistan, Pakistan and some other countries that are known for spreading extremism, terrorism and fundamentalism,” Afghan religious scholar Hedaytullah Hedayat told OnIslam.net.
Hedayat stressed that the new centre should dedicate its efforts to spread the true Islamic teachings that are meant to spread harmony, peace and tolerance.
Your life is a test
A great quote to reflect on. Many people ask themselves, “why me, and what is this life, that I was given, all about”? But the purpose is that the life of any human being on this earth is a test. And when we die, we will get the result of the test that we have completed. Remember; “During exams, the teacher is always silent”. So be careful with your life choices, otherwise you won’t get your diploma! I want to end this short article with the point that “Life is good, at any given time. This life isn’t a punishment.” #peace
