The Distinction Problem

I was queuing up to buy some drinks at the food court downstairs when I overheard a discussion going on between some students of a nearby college on Islam and the Arabic language. There was this Arab student who was telling the other students (non-Muslims) about the religion of Islam, and how it is superior to other religions, and how the Arabs, are the preferred ones as compared to Muslims of other races. To this, I turned towards him and retorted:

“You Arabs are scum of the earth. Muhammad was chosen amongst you NOT because your race is superior; it is because you guys were so fucked up then, and even so now. You have no manners; no regards for your surroundings; no regards for the traffic regulations of other countries; your kids throw things around in supermarkets; and you think this whole world is yours! Muhammad was sent to teach you bastards a lesson! And the Quran is in your language because that is the only language you can understand.”

He just kept quiet, red-faced. Everyone just ceased to talk, and looked at me.

This whole world is in a fucked-up state because the Muslims, Jews and Christians alike think that one is superior to the other. That the world domination of one’s religion is the supreme and divine cause, and that Paradise is promised to all those who succeed in subjugating the rest.

Well, let me put a damper to your thoughts, you religious-racists! God only asked you to be good, and that you follow the good ways. No one mortal has the right to say that the other is wrong or otherwise because that is God’s prerogative. Unless, you’re the Pharoah and you think that you are the God of all Gods. I can’t say if one has sinned, or whether his or her deeds would be accepted by God or not. That is for God to say, and not certainly not me.

And we are all the same: Muslims, Jews, Christians. We were so fucked-up that God had to send His Messiah to deliver us. Then, the Jews whacked the Christians for having Jesus, and not subscribing to David’s way. Then, the Jews and Christians whacked the Muslims for following a Prophet who’s not a Jew. Then idiots from the Muslim quarter thinks that world domination and submission is THE only way to go. While I’m at it, let me just whack my own kind, because the so-called religious zealots, while claiming to defend Islam, don’t even understand the Quran.

God stated in the Quran:

The Messenger (Muhammad PBUH) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. They say, “We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers” – and they say, “We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your Forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all). (2:285)

Say (O Muslims), “We believe in Allah and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma’il (Ishmael), Ishaque (Isaac), Ya’qub (Jacob), and to Al-Asbat [the twelve sons of Ya’qub (Jacob)], and that which has been given to Musa (Moses) and ‘Iesa (Jesus), and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have submitted.” (2:136)

And those who believe in Allah and His Messengers and make no distinction between any of them (Messengers), We shall give them their rewards, and Allah is Ever OftForgiving, Most Merciful. (4:152)

Say (O Muhammad PBUH): “We believe in Allah and in what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down to Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma’il (Ishmael), Ishaque (Isaac), Ya’qub (Jacob) and Al-Asbat [the twelve sons of Ya’qub (Jacob)] and what was given to Musa (Moses), ‘Iesa (Jesus) and the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between one another among them and to Him (Allah) we have submitted.” (3:84)

So, there have you. So if the three of you are bent on proving that this whole planet can be better if they subscribe to your ways, then get off the fucking planet. We all worship the same God. So, whichever way that you pray to Him, is your fucking business.

  1. Well said! Memang that was what my old man told too about Nabi Muhammad (s.a.w) was sent among the Arabs first because of their barbaric ways…
