The Correct Perspective: Part II - How do people view Islam?

In my very first post entitled THE CORRECT PERSPECTIVE, I outlined the purpose of creation, the purpose of Man. I also pointed out that the correct perspective is the first step towards man's purpose as a servant of G-d. This is why we follow the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.)... he had the correct perspective on life, obtained directly from G-d.

So, as Muslims we understand this...our purpose in life and essentially our way of Life, which is ISLAM. But, what about others?

How do others around us view Islam? What is there perspective on this beautiful religion?


I think the general populations view of Islam follows the view of the Muslims. People see Islam the same way they see the Muslims who live Islam. What do I mean? Muslims strive (or should strive) to uphold the values of this beautiful religion and way of life but sometimes we fall short. People view Islam by the people that represent it.

When articles like THIS appear in our media, I wonder how good of a job are we doing to represent our religion? How successful are we at following the true example of the Prophet (saw)?

We have a job to do. YOU AND I have a job to do, especially in America. We must, and i repeat....WE MUST represent our religion, our way of life, to the world. Whether its displayed in your character or your dress, in your thoughts or in your actions, YOU are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah.
