Topic #40: If Islam is the chosen religion of Allah then why are muslims being massacred all around?


If Islam is the chosen religion of Allah (god) then why are its followers being prosecuted and massacred around the world?

If Islam is the chosen religion of Allah (god) then why are its followers being prosecuted and massacred around the world? [present condition of muslim in the world; bad condition of muslim in the world]


Allah (god) has very clearly described the reasons behind sending the humans on Earth. He has assigned two responsibilities on two different level.


First responsibility is as an individual which is to worship Allah alone without associating any partner with him. Allah says in the Qur'an:

"I did not create jinn and humans except to worship Me." Qur'an 51:56

Second responsibility is as an Ummah (collective responsibility) which is to encourage good deeds & stop bad deeds & spread the message of Allah & his prophet (peace be upon him) among those who are unaware & be beneficial for humanity. Allah says in the Qur'an:

"You are the best community ever raised for humanity—you encourage good, forbid evil, and believe in Allah." Qur'an 3:110

In the ayah (verse) above, Allah has clearly stated that we as an Ummah are supposed to be beneficial for the humanity. It is the law of Allah that whatever or whoever is beneficial for the humanity will stay & prosper & whatever or whoever is not beneficial will be removed.


Now, coming back to the question stated at the top which is "If Islam is the chosen religion of Allah (god) then why are its followers being prosecuted and massacred around the world?". Yes, it is true that Islam is the chosen religion of the god but he has made certain laws which he never changes & it is according to these laws that the thing works. Allah clearly stated the reasons behind sending us, now it is up to us to keep up with those responsibilities or live however we want.


Most of the muslims today are not fulfilling even the first responsibility let alone the second one. Most of us are not even praying 5 times a day. Also, we've almost stopped being beneficial for the humanity. We gave so many scientific theories & principles to the world. We discovered Algebra, Law of reflection, Astrolabe & what not but then suddenly it all stopped & we became the most helpless community of this world. We were supposed to lead but we went all bad & now we have become just like animals whose work is to just eat & sleep.


I hope you are getting my point & the answer to the question. The law of Allah is same for everyone may it be a Muslim, Christian or Hindu. If we would lead our life according to those laws & fulfill our responsibilities, we will prosper. No doubt about that.


So let us all make a promise to ourselves that we will fulfill both of our responsibilities.


And Allah knows best!
