How to respond to the Bashing against Islam

The enemies of Islam were fully active during the time of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). When Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) started preaching the truth and ALLAH’s message, there were many enemies of Islam who opposed it and went to every means to stop the truth from spreading. They had no valid reason other than worldly desires and they didn’t wanted their temporary leadership and power to decrease. But they failed to stop the truth from spreading and those who stand support falsehood will always fail to stop truth, falsehood is bound to perish. ALLAH says in Quran:

“And say, “The truth is here and falsehood has ceased to be! Indeed, falsehood is ever bound to vanish!” [Holy Quran 17:81] 

Muslims shouldn’t worry about the hatred, lies, deceptions, plotting, misconceptions, Islamophobia, betrayals and oppression from the enemies of Islam. They were trying in the time of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) and they will continue trying till the Day of Judgment. We Muslims must have patience and tolerance in order to deal all this in a way our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) dealt and that is the way ALLAH want us to deal. We must use wisdom and intellect in order to respond to all the negative propaganda and planning. Neither should be have a apologetic behavior to respond to the misconceptions created by the enemies, nor should be so staunch that we reply them in their ways. Rather we must need to understand Islam by Quran recitation, learning the meaning of Quran and authentic Sunnah of our Beloved Prophet (Peace be upon Him). We must devise ways so that our families may get close to the teachings of Islam. We must not respond in a violent tone to their baseless accusations, they want us to get furious and be violent, so that they can give a different picture to the world that “see how violent muslims and Islam is”. They will never be able to extinguish the light of Islam because ALLAH is taking care of that. As ALLAH says in Quran:

“They seek to extinguish the light of ALLAH with their mouths; but ALLAH refuses but to perfect HIS light, though the disbelievers may resent it.” [Holy Quran 9:32] 

I have not covered all the aspects as the topic is too immense to cover it all in one post, I will try to keep writing more about how we Muslims should respond to the lies of the enemies of Islam.
