Misconceptions

What it means to be a Muslim has been misrepresented for many years. Radicals have appeared in the name of Islam. They have portrayed Islam, a religion of love, peace and brotherhood, as one of terror, savagery and rage. Instead of encourage love between people, they have incited hatred. They hated women. They hated children, flowers, the sky and pleasant views. Because they lived far removed from Allah, true Islam and the Sunna of our Prophet (saas). By Aylin Kocaman

All people are born with knowledge of love. A young child never exhibits any prejudice. A child knows no racial differences, no hatred, no classification of others by religion, culture or nation, and will not wrong others because he is born with that love in his nature. Everyone is created with the soul breathed into him by Allah, and that soul is focused on love because Allah loves to love and be loved. By Aylin Kocaman

Islam is a religion of peace and equality as it gives everyone the equal rights whether a Muslim or a non-Muslim. There is no discrimination for anyone in Islam. Islam is the messenger of kindness and The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was sent as a mercy to the mankind of whole universe.

One of the main misconceptions about Islam is that Muslims and Arabs are synonymous. In fact, Arab Muslims are a small portion of the Muslims in the world. This misconception is in large part due to the fact that the Middle East is a part of the world that is rife with conflict, with many competing interests concentrated in a small area. The fact that much of the world's oil is concentrated in this area, that Islam's holy places are located in the Middle East, that Islam was born in the Middle ...

One of the most widespread misconceptions about Islam is that Muslims are violent terrorists. This is in large part due to the rampant Islamophobia in the media. Few other religions receive the kind of unfair generalization that occurs when someone from a Muslim background commits a terrible, violent act. One notable example in recent times was the atrocious massacre of young people in Norway, at the hand of an extremist right-wing fanatic. Muslims and Islam were being demonized in the media eve ...

One of the biggest misconceptions about Islam is about its treatment of women. No true Muslim will deny that there are barbarous customs and laws that mistreat women in many so-called Islamic countries. However, it is important to understand the difference between what comes from Islam or Shariah and that which comes from a sinful, backwards view on the equality of the sexes. In fact, almost every case of mistreatment of women in Arab countries is completely against the literal teachings of Isla ...

A common misconception about Islam is that Muslims worship Allah, a different God than Christians and Jews. This could not be more wrong. The word Allah is simply the Arabic word for “God.” The Quran teaches that Allah is the same God that is worshiped by both Christians and Jews. In fact, the word “Allah” is the exact same word that Jews use to refer to God, “Eloh.” Due to the way vowels work in the Hebrew and Arabic languages, these are both in fact the same word.

It has become fashionable for the far right in the United Kingdom to make Islam and Muslims the target of vitriolic and hateful speech. Some of the things these people say are so extreme that it is almost impossible to believe that people with such education and knowledge can actually believe the rubbish they spew. In the dealings with the far right, when they throw out so-called facts that are clearly unsubstantiated, exaggerated or blatant lies, there comes a point where we must ask ourselves. ...

What is the reason for the delay in response to du'aa'? Some people make du'aa' but they do not get any response; they ask for a long time but do not see it having any effect, so you find the Shaytaan starting to whisper to such people and making them think badly of their Lord.

A man who works with my father convinced him that was being affected by the evil eye. He brought him an amulet and said: Put it in your pocket and it will protect you against the evil eye. Then after that he got a paper on which was written alif, ba’, ‘ayn, daal Arabic letters and at the bottom of the paper it said “Allaah is the protector” and some other incomprehensible letters and mumbo jumbo and scribbles. We want to get rid of this paper because it is something that is n ...
