No She is NOT getting married to a Muslim! No She does NOT want a Rich Arab man!
''I can understand it if it is coming from my australian mates, or people who are non-muslim, but it is SOO frustating when it comes from my Brothers and Sisters in Islam! Isn't Islam good enough for me to just enter in for it's beliefs?'' A asked while we were on our way back to her home on Thursday.
It is NOT just her, I have seen so many people who presume that when a non-muslim girl reverts to Islam in an Arab state could be only for the following reasons ;
1. She is going to marry a muslim guy
2. She wants to get a rich arab for herself
3. Maybe she wants to marry a LOCAL!
For all those people who are SO interested in asking these questions, I just want to ask you all One thing, 'WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?' Can't somebody just Enter Islam because they wanted to follow a religion with beliefs that made sense to them? OR maybe JUST maybe! They wanted to follow Truth??! or HEY! Perhaps they read a translation of the Quran and grew more curious about it??
C'mon come out of your cave already.
Don't be suspicious about anyone, because nobody knows the state of eman in their hearts like nobody can know yours.
“Beware of suspicion, for suspicion is the worst of false tales and do not look for the others` faults, and do not do spying on one another, and do not practice Najsh (to cheat), and do not be jealous of one another and do not hate one another, and do not desert (stop talking to) one another. And O, Allah`s worshipers! Be brothers!"
Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 008 Book No. 073 Hadith No. 092 Narrated by Abu Huraira (r.a.)
When we ask such questions we make them feel like strangers to the religion. As if Islam is just made for people who are born in it and only those people have the Perfect Reasons to be Muslims and Perfect Knowledge!
Then we have the other set wonderful people who feel that being corrected by a reverted Muslim is a BIG OFFENSE! This may be NEWS to them but guess what?! The Companions of the Prophet (sal Allahu Alay hi wa sallam) were also REVERTS!
''I am born Muslim, I know better than you do, Don't YOU tell me what to do or How to do!''
Akhi or Ukhty who gives this response upon being corrected. Haven't you heard of humility or showing respect to your brother/sister in Islam?
Ok fine, let's presume that you don't ''WANT'' to show both. What does Islam say about arrogance?
614. Haritha ibn Wahb said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, 'Shall I tell you about the people of the Fire? All those who are coarse, domineering, and arrogant.'" [Agreed upon] [Chapter 72, Riyad as Saliheen by Imam Nawawi]
Thats all, I am done with my rant. Plus, the post above is not just what I have to remind about to others, It is a reminder for myself too.
