Teeth Breaking Responses To Those Who Want To Extinguish The Light Of Allah

TTT is our brother/sister site that deals with writing articles responding to the most common attacks on Islam. The articles are unarguable and most scholastic (in the English language) following a unique traditional style, giving explanations of scholars, expositions of commentaries and most important of all in a simple short and clear way that everyone can understand.

Shamoun's Lowly Character

Sam thinks he can beat everyone in a debate and that he has already done so. Things have not even happened yet he can predict with certainty outcomes. He thinks no one can answer him. Check out a list of answers right here.

The Simples Declaration of Peace by Jibreelk

Islam has the solution
It has been quite a frequent endeavor of missionaries and social humanists who have set their minds on misrepresenting Islam in front of the masses, to accuse Islam of being a intolerant and violent religion. With their attractive media propaganda they captivated the minds of the common folk who are innocent and ignorant and have build a social camp in the western world that is driven by islamophobia. Muslims however, still claim and try with all their might to preach to the world that Islam is peaceful and has a brighter and purer face as opposed to the foxy representation given by bigots.
This article will prove beyond any doubt that the foundation of Islam lies in peace and opposing oppression of any kind.
Peace is a human aspiration that is at the core of every society. It is just like love, it is in no need of textual proofs or lip service. It is a default. If bigots were careful and honest enough to read the Quran and the other Islamic sources they would have found themselves drowning in the deep ocean of passages calling to peace, opposing oppression and upholding human rights. But they are not.
In order to prove them wrong we will use only one hadith or saying of prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, on this topic, who's simple yet comprehensive/deep speech (jamiul qualm) is an attestation of his prophethood.
Narrated Anas: Allah's Apostle said, "Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one. People asked, "O Allah's Apostle! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?" The Prophet said, "By preventing him from oppressing others." Sahih Bukhari: Volume 3, Book 43, Number 624.
If the world powers were to lead according to this simple principle the world would be a better place. They say ignorance is bliss, however I differ when the whole world seems to be filled with people who posses such traits and use them against Islam. I wonder how do such people feel when all their televisions shows, their fancy computer effects, their so called scholars and guest speakers on Islam feel when they are refuted by a simple statement such as the hadith narrated above. Help your brother be him the oppressed or the oppressor. Let us look a bit deeper at this statement for I believe this statement does not only show Islam's peaceful aspirations on a universal scale but at the same time it shows the principle which would drive an Islamic state (which people fear so much) were it ever to happen.
The Muslim has a faith based duty to help those who are oppressed. He/she is held to the letter of the text, sinning and susceptible to hell fire if he/she suffers from the bystander effect. The Muslim is an active instrument, a model citizen who will not only care about the well being of his circle, but also of the circle of those around him. Allah says in the Quran that oppression is worst than murder. If a Muslim sees it he/she has to stop it. If there was an Islamic state, this would be the one principle that would protect all those who would be under the rule of Islam. Be them Muslims, Christians, Jews or others, no one would have to fear oppression. Yet when speaking to such people they swear that it is only the violent and oppressive nature of Islam that drives their agenda to destroy the image of the faith. Nothing else. They claim they are sincere advisors and spreaders of peace. Really? So then we must have appeased their minds with this simple hadith. The reality is that such people only want to protect their ability to sin freely and to spread their hatred for others under the pretext of love.
Such people might scream loud when reading such a hadith and say that such a statement only applies to Muslims, and that non Muslims would be oppressed, as the prophet pbuh only said help your brother, but again such people are hasty in their thinking and are short to realize that the meaning is so specific and so deep that it covers every type of living thing. Even more it holds the Muslim in a position of responsibility as if he is the oppressor he has to be stopped by none other than the Muslim. If the Muslim is the oppressor, the oppressed can be anything and anyone, and if the Muslim is the oppressed the same goes. However we need to focus on the second statement and scream it loudly, for if the Muslim is the oppressor and he is oppressing a Christian, a Jew, a Hindu, a dog, a cat, a resource, a position, the environment anything you can think of, he or she has to be stopped by non other than their own brother and sister. In the context of an Islamic state, before a non Muslim subject would even harbor thoughts of rising against the system (if oppressed by it), the Muslim would have changed the tables towards the non Muslim and would have helped him or her.
So remember: next time someone tries to inflate your head with anti Islamic lies of violence and oppression, know that the Muslim is the solution for a better, peaceful, free of oppression world.
