John Oliver’s response is amazing. Watch the entire video and see how Reza Aslan uses a “seerah” style way of telling the story of Jesus (peace and blessings of God be upon him) to John Oliver. The best part is in the last part of the interview where John Oliver said he had a personal connection with the “day laborer” Jesus rather than the “touchdown” Jesus.
Often when a Muslim commits a criminal act is expected for all Muslim organizations, Muslim groups and Mosques to condemn the actions of the Muslim criminal. I find this really sad and dumb. No Muslim is responsible for the criminal acts of another Muslim. No Muslim should have to apologize for another Muslim’s criminal act. We still do it many times over and over. With the recent murder committed by two Muslims in the UK, every major Muslim organization issued statements condemning it. Popular Muslim figures released videos condemning it. Yet it is often stated by some, “where are the Muslim condemnations?”. So with that said, I am asking where are the condemnations for these crimes? More
This is a very interesting video.
As a Muslim I also believe Jesus (peace be upon him) will return. He will rule from Jerusalem, but not sure about Missouri.
May Allah (swt) make this project successful.
My personal thoughts is that youth in the Muslim world do not have the same love and inspiration for Islam the way Muslim youth of the non-Muslim world do. The Muslim youth of the entire world are all into the same things whether it’s sports, music, movies and the general pop culture. The Muslim scholars of the West like Imam Suhaib Webb, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi and many others have the oration skills and connection with not just the youth in the West but the youth in the East as well. I believe this is one way to help them by sending these types of scholars over there to teach them about Islam and balancing the modernity and identity.
This man has kidnapped children. Forced them to kill their parents. Forced girls into sex slaves. Displaced millions, killed thousands and all in the name of Christianity in establishing a Christian nation in Africa. Obviously Joseph Kony isn’t a true Christian. His understanding is totally skewed from the tradition of Jesus, the son of Mary, the Prophet of God (God’s peace and blessings be upon him).
Remember folks, all terrorists are Muslims!
