“There shall be no compulsion in[acceptance of] religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold with no break in it. And, Allah is all-hearing and all-knowing” (2:256, al-Qörān)

The aforementioned verse explains everything a young Muslim generation wants to know but among our societal measures, religious disparities, and issues between factions or sect scholars. There is a lot of compulsion, difficulties, ties, in which every Muslim is summoned today.

Islam, according to research, is the utmost fast-growing religion in the world. But, maybe the least established in many parts of the world.

The dictum of Islamism is never followed in the right way now. Since the world in 632AD, the inception of Islam has been changed. Also, the perception of people. Sects were made for lively discussion in terms of tranquillity but as they start to grow more. Envy entered in their hearts, now every man of any sect thinks he has the higher knowledge than others. And, the man preaches Islam in his sectrum way instead of preaching in a way our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did.

Islam is a religion of peace, prosperity, uniqueness, of preaching freely. It is a religion with authentic examples and evidence.

Moreover, nowadays, religion becomes the most controversial subject for women living, especially in Pakistan. Islam is the same for every Muslim girl or boy or trans and the same should be practiced in modernism. However, a hijab-wearing woman set at the top whether we do not know what kind of world she is having inside. We call a bold girl a slut or an escort or a woman who needs money without knowing her life.

Here, all the sects are jealous of each other. Why we are not understanding Islam in the right way? We are indirectly refusing our Allah’s command to be together just like shaitan [the devil] did by refusing Allah to do sajdah to Adam (R.A).

Islam is a substantial religion but to my dismay, “MUSLIMS” make it known as the doctrine of differences, terrorism, hatred, and complications.

Celebrating Christmas, Halloween, Diwali is now Muslim festivals because we do not give a damn about Rabi-ul-Awal, Shabaan. Why?

Islam teaches us to respect every religion. But adopting other faiths and celebrating their festivals to let them feel good is not OK!

Why a man cannot walk on the road without starring a woman? Why a woman cannot walk by covering her body? What is this modernism, where glam is for rich people and dupatta for poor; where transgenders are wrong and gays lesbians are superior?

Finding positivity through Islam in “modernism” is not wrong, the way Muslims are portraying it is wrong. We can wear jeans and tees and still offer our prayers. But there should be a line of respect in that attire. Islam and its teachings are facts written down in Quran and explained in hadith and we should adopt it in modernism. So do not make it an opinionated religion. It’s a religion perfected by ALLAH and let him perfect it for you.

“The world is a prison for the believer and a paradise for the unbeliever.” – Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ) (AHIH MUSLIM 2956)
