Muslims and non Muslims can
live in harmony. The greatest example comes from the life of the holy prophet
Hazrat Muhammad peace be upon him, after the battles were fought between the
Muslims and non Muslims in Arab and the Muslims being victorious our holy
prophet forgave his enemies and told to respect the women and protect the
children even during the war. Islam is the religion of peace and humanity and
our prophet's (Hazrat Muhammad peace be upon him) teachings hold clear guidance
of the problems a person faces in life. In a community where Muslims live along
with other non Muslims belonging to any religion must act according to the
sayings of the holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him). No Muslim is
allowed to harm any non Muslim just for being one.
The harmony that should have been created long ago is shattered not only by the
Muslim's mistake but also by the measures taken against Muslims by different
countries pressuring them for the crimes that most certainly all of the Muslims
have not committed. Some Muslims like to spread the message of God but in their
activities they act sometimes harshly towards the non muslims; sometimes
disliking them for their ignorance of Islam. Losing their patience they force
others to obey them but in doing so they forget that Islam does not teach to be
harsh and unpleasant to any one. Hazrat Muhammad peace be upon him preached
Islam to all the mankind even his greatest enemies with love and greatest
patience without a harsh word or even a curse.
On the contrary the non muslims also misbehave with the Muslims calling them
extremists and terrorists. The super powers of the world have no likeness for
the Muslims, without mercy bombs are dropped on Muslim areas without considering
about the precious lives of the humans just to catch a hand full of other
Muslims termed as "Taliban". If Taliban are the real culprits then while trying
to seize them certain safety measures should be taken for the innocent people's
lives where the war against terrorism is conducted.
If the Muslims want to spread the message of God they should show their best
qualities of character and act according to the sayings of the holy Prophet. The
world can be a much better place to live if the harmony persists between the
Muslims and non muslims.
