What’s Wrong with Islam?

We have to realize that our country has too many differences. Ethnic, culture, community and especially religion. As good Indonesian peoples, we have to do important thing. What’s that? We have to keep tolerance with others in this country and must be aware that our country has many differences.

So, it’s important to keep tolerance in the circle of our society, and then each other has freedom to profess and to perform their religion. Talking about Islam, Islam doesn’t force each person to choose Islam to be their religion, because the obligation of Moslems only convey da’wah, not to force convert to Islam.

Let’s see in surah Al-Kafirun verse 6, that says “your religion is your religion, my religion is my religion”. This letter teaches us that every religion has different principles and basic values. So, the differences must be respected, not to disturb each other and not to impose each other.

I have story from my friend. When she wanted to drop in some villages in Bali, suddenly some people of that villages or a villager asked my friend.

Villager : “Are you Moslem?”

My Friend : “Yea, I’m Moslem, what’s wrong?”

Villager : “I’m so sorry, in our village, we don’t allow every Moslem to enter this village, that’s our rule”

My friend was so speechless and too painful to hear that, but she tried to keep cooling down and tried to explain about the real Islam. Fortunately, she has good skill of communicaton, so finally she could get there/drop in to that village.

Look, Bali.. one country with us, and I know the first religion in Bali is Hindu and many western people start there, they may think that Islam always make destruction and bom blast incident and perhaps they remember about bom incident in Bali twelve years ago (2005).

And how about people from other country? What do they think about Islam? (Wallahua’lam). And I think, many kinds of Islam that they don’t know.

So, from this case, we know that how important it is to keep tolerance and try to make a good communicaton with others, so we can get a good relation too, and eradicate the misunderstanding about Islam.

  1. Sedih ya mba, hanya krn beberapa kelompok yang ‘ekstrimis’ yang lain kena getahnya, sampe temennnya sempat di tolak juga. Semoga kedepannya bisa semakin toleran 🙂

  2. I am not a moslem, but I know that moslem is beautiful in their own. I have so many friends whose religion is moslem. You know, they also have treated me well so far and I feel happy with that. 😀

  3. Samuel Desfortin:
    In my opinion, every religion is naturally good, so is Islam. I am not a moslem, but I agree that Islam is good faith. What makes Islam seems to be bad for some people is that because of the behaviour of its follower who have radical concept which tends to be misleading concept.

    I agree with you that we must keep tolerance. Tolerance is peaceful. Tolerance is respecful.

    If someone blasphemes or insult your religion, it will not make your religion to be insulted, but your reaction toward the blasphemy could make your religion seems to be insulting.

    Oya, karena diminta koreksi grammar, saya coba ya, tp utk diksi secara kesluruhan sya tdk koreksi.

    This is my correction:

  5. Thank you so much, this article is not paid, I still use it only for hobby and pleasure, and this article has been corrected by my blogger friend who become english teacher, actually I also still need a lot of learning to write this language.

  6. Hello, I was reading through this post and I was wondering if you would consider taking your time to have a look at a book written about human rights in Islam and provide me with some feedback? Please let me know if that interests you.
