Why the world wants to believe All Muslims Are Terrorists

I'm not one to talk about politics. I barely watch the news and well this time the news is again somehow about me.Muslims all around the world.. so i feel its my duty to speak up.Yet another terrorist group has gone and committed a crime in Islams name which ofcourse regular ordinary Muslims like me will pay the price for in thier everyday life. 

Why do i feel i need to defend myself when i have done nothing wrong? Why do i feel by just walking in a room when i was in the US i have to urge to say 
" relax i'm one of the good ones". 

I feel my religion has been hijacked by a bunch of mentally disturbed inhuman group of people who believe that they can interpret the words of God in anyway they like to justify their undeniably hideous acts! 

Truth is there are many bad muslims and many good muslims too .. The bad muslims that are so bad to the point that by doing those things that contradict ISLAM they cant be even called Muslims. 

Unfortunately its those bad muslims that make the headlines. 

The many Muslim scientists, Surgeons, Police Officers etc... that have lived their whole lives serving in countries like the US, FRANCE & all around the world are examples of people who will pay the price for actions they themselves condemn.

Imagine you are teacher in a classroom. A man comes in and shoots all the kids you have been teaching for so many years. Kids you have grown so close to that you feel have become your family.You stand there distraught with nothing but pain in your heart. Next thing you know it turns out he is Muslim and people are pointing their fingers at YOU. What hurts isn't just the loss of those innocent kids, its the fact that all his years of dedication and hard work mean nothing. To them he is a terrorist just like all Muslims, and sadly he thought he was one of them.

The reason the world would love to believe that all Muslims are terrorists is that they will feel better believing that. That all the evil and terrorism in the world are confined to one group of people. People who you can spot easily by their long beards or scarfs on their head. They would sleep at night better knowing that they know who the terrorists are. Denying the fact that a terrorist can be of any religion, any nationality. A terrorist has no specific race or religion. A terrorist could have your same nationality and religion and maybe even the same family name and still have nothing to do with you. 

I call for the world to stop being ignorant to stop pointing fingers at the innocent people who want nothing but peace. I call for the world to educate themselves about ISLAM and the true meaning of ISLAM and what it calls for before judging a religion because many have wronged it by their ignorance.

Unfortunately more and more often, Islam has been associated with terrorism and violence due to the actions of a few extreme individuals who’ve taken it upon themselves to do the most heinous crimes in the name of Islam. 

How would you feel if someone made fun of your mom? Drew Cartoons of her that were insulting? 

I think you would be pretty offended and upset. Muslims cherish the prophet ( pbuh) more than their mothers & fathers and daughters and their self and loving the prophet
 ( pbuh) is part of the Muslim faith. These cartoons are hurtful insulting yes, but as you can see those who thought by killing as an answer have not only brought shame to ISLAMS name but have caused them to not only print more insulting cartoons in numbers they have never done before. 

May Muslims learn that hate and anger should not fill your heart. Get to know your religion, get to know the prophet (pbuh) and react the way he would have reacted.

Did you know the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had a Jewish&neighbor;and this person used to every morning throw his garbage at the door step of the Prophet's home. The Prophet would then pick it up and throw it in the disposal area along with his personal trash. One morning the Prophet didn't see any garbage on his door step and he didn't really care much about it. The next morning same thing and so on, until a week passed by without any garbage being put on the Prophet's door step. So our Prophet went to that Jewish neighbor and paid him a visit to check on him. The Jewish neighbor was sick and he was in bed. Our Prophet then started taking care of his Jewish neighbor and the Jewish very soon embraced Islam because of our beloved Prophet's high morals. Garbage on his door didnt get him angry you think a few scribbles on a paper would make him react the
 way they did?

 "But our reaction must be a reflection of the teachings of the gentle and merciful character of the Prophet (peace be upon him).  Enduring patience, tolerance, gentleness and mercy as was the character of our beloved Prophet (peace and Blessings be upon him) is the best and immediate way to respond. With dignified nobility we must be restrained, as the Qur'an says “And when the ignorant speak to them, they say words of Peace.”
