Before writing this post, I seriously condemn FaceBook for sponsoring such blasphemous content and events that may antagonize the Muslim community.
Nevertheless, I have controversies over how most of us have reacted to this event. I believe that we have overdone it and also unconsciously marketed it. Our response should have been educated. However, it was purely based upon emotion. I do not blame anyone as this was natural. Unfortunately, boycotting FaceBook is not a solution to the problem. If boycotting was the solution, Islam would have restricted to the walls of Mecca only.
I would like narrate an incident here,
Upon preaching Islam, the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him was chased by the people of Taif. They made mockery of him and pelted stones at him. They almost stoned him to death. The blood flowed down through his body and jammed onto his feet. He was in great agony and mourning in pain. An angel descended upon him and said, "O Messenger of Allah! Do you want me to crush these people between these two mountains of Taif?, The Prophet Peace Be Upon Him replied and said, "No! for they are ignorant and may Allah lead them to the right path". The angel asked him thrice, but every time our Prophet said NO and prayed for them. (SUBHANALLAH).
This incident has a great learning within it, if we realize and understand.
The love for the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him is way beyond than how we have reacted to this event. We need to understand and define it properly.
How effectively have we incorporated the Prophet's SUNNAH into our lives? In one of the Hadith, the prophet has explicitly stated, "For those of you who love me, follow the Quran and My Sunnah"
Sorry! Protesting is an easy thing, if you really love the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him, just try to be like him and prove it with your action.
May Allah bless us all and may Allah help us follow the Prophet's Peace Be Upon Him Sunnah.
