Donald Trump “Islam Hates America” True or false?
Donald Trump “Islam Hates America” True or false? : Peace and blessings to all, Recently I have the great pleasure to meet brothers from the Naksibendi Masjid and as I met them and spoken with them, They were very loving and soft-spoken people who truly gave a great sense of serenity and peace when I was among them.
The Imam gave us a lecture about a few things but spoke about our ego and how we must battle ourselves and our inner ego which can mislead us or be a great tool in furthering our spiritual journey in this life and after. When I went there, I was more curious to meet some of the brothers, have a sit down with them and take part with their prayers and ziker ( remembrance ) of Allah Almighty and the prophet of Islam ( mercy to the worlds ) Mohammad-peace be with him. Watch this video and tune in to the answer the Imam gave in reference to my question about Donald trump and his ignorant statement that “Islam Hates America”
In the lecture earlier to the interview the Sheikh also raised a good point that Allah is not an Arab nore any of human races or languages. Allah is the Creator of all things and acquainted with all things.
Donald Trump “Islam Hates America” True or false?
Watch this video which The Sheikh gives his response below
Islam teaches tolerance of others as the Quran quotes that “ There is no compulsion in religion ” 2:256.
What to Gain from Video
What the Sheikh Explains is simply that Muslims have lived side by side with other religions and whoever is peaceful with them. Even when Muslims greatly out numbered the other religious sects, Muslims lived in peace with them and gave them rights to worship and coexisted with each other as a community in peaceful way.
As well if we look into more details about the Quranic scripture, one of the most obvious things should be how it begins each chapter in it. Which is ‘ ” In the Name of Allah ( TheGod ) the most merciful, Especially merciful ). The Quran was revealed through out the life time of prophet mohammad-pbuh and many verses were revealed in direct association to certain events at the time, while most of it indeed are timeless and are not restricted in any way to the times of old.
Note : Only one chapter does not begin with ” in the name of Allah the most merciful, especially merciful ) and that is Chapter 9 ( Surah Taubah ) But we do find it in the text of the surah.
The Sheikh raises a very important point and that is Islam has been around for 1400 years plus already and if the policy of Islam was to reject any other faith or convert others to follow Islam only, then clearly 1400 years is indeed plenty of time to end all other religions from Muslim lands. They could have forced all the people to speak arabic only and since they controlled a great part of the known world, they could have easily done so. Yet Islam does not and it teaches tolerance and coexistence indeed.
Quranic Revelation to Arabs
The reason The Quran is revealed in Arabic is because the Arabs had never received a prophet before Mohammad-pbuh. The Arabs are the first cousins of the Jewish brethren which both descended from Abraham-pbuh and through the prophet Ishmael-pbuh the Arabs came. Ishmael was a father to also 12 Arab tribes.
The Quran itself reveals why it was sent in Arabic “We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an so you people
may understand / use reason” (12:2) Thus clearly stating reason/understanding is crucial to abid by TheGod’s commands.
The Quran as well encourages people to be thinkers and to ponder upon the heavens and earth and what Allah created to understand that truly Allah can create whatever he wishes. Even though we refer to Allah as He. The Quran clearly says that Allah is Neither Male nore Female and not created, but the Creator of all things.
Who is Allah according to the Quran ?? Surah 112 explains it to all ” Say: He is Allah, the One and Only! Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him. ”
Surah 2:62 we find something that is quit the opposite “Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans – those who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve. ”
Clearly this verse protects the believers of TheGod it Protects Jews, Protects Christians, as well with reason we can say Agnostics who believe in The God, last day and do good. If Islam taught intolerance then surely the Quran would not be protecting people of other faiths.
Surah 22:40 “those who have been evicted from their homes without right – only because they say, “Our Lord is Allah.” And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned. And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might. ”
Clearly states that Allah protected monasteries, churches, synagogues and Masjids ( mosques ). Why would the Quran say such things if indeed it was teaching intolerance ??
Islam means submission to theGod in peace.
It’s more important to be righteous, a peacekeeper, good doer and to worship TheGod alone with out partners. This is what all religions basically teach, but we find many men have corrupted it for their own gains and it still happening today and most likely will continue to happen.
I recommend you read the quran yourself and get as much info and knowledge from it first. Don’t learn Islam from the actions of others, or their words. Seek it and find out yourself.
I will lastly shares who Allah loves and those are the good doers ref 2:195, 3:134, 3:148, 5:13, 5:93.
Please Share this with others and spread the true position on Islam in regards to all people, the quran is a book of mercy and compassion, love and understanding and certainly speaks to certain people who are wicked and evil doers and surely Allah loves them not for they spread corruption and mischief on the land and amongest people. 2:11 “And when it is said unto them: Make not mischief in the earth, they say: We are peacemakers only. ”

I find so many people to being rather pathetic for their monetary gains by spreading fear amongest the masses and those who fall pray to their tactics have none to blame but themselves, All people who don’t look into matters on their own and simply believe another because they said so, or because they make a great presentation, that means nothing and will not justify your ignorance as it’s your own responsibility to find the truth to what is being said.
If you think satan has any authority over you or me or anything then you need to read this verse in which satan confirms to those who followed him that he isn’t of any authority over them and that he simply said it and they listened, that on judgment day he and those who followed him are all doomed to eternal damnation. Surah 14:22 “And Satan will say when the matter has been concluded, “Indeed, Allah had promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you, but I betrayed you. But I had no authority over you except that I invited you, and you responded to me. So do not blame me; but blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid, nor can you be called to my aid. Indeed, I deny your association of me before. Indeed, for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment. ”
The very next verse comforts the believers Surah 14:23 “And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein by permission of their Lord; and their greeting therein will be, “Peace! ”
