Truly Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance, those who practices it may err, transgress never put the blame on the religion but put on those who practice it
Allah says in the holy Qur’an that he has perfected Islam for us and pleased to Islam to be our religion
It is no doubt that all what Qur’an teach Muslims is good. It teaches from worshiping and glorifying the oneness of Allah, moral, humility, mercy to philanthropy etc.
Islam teaches to be good to your family, neighbour and everyone, it also teaches to exercise patience wherever we found ourselves and the likes, example is Allah’s statement in suratul Baqora when giving precise definition of pious once in verse 177
”Been righteous is not by turning your face toward east or west, but been righteous is by believing in Allah, the last day, the angels, the book and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to your relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who seek for your help and for freeing slaves
Also those who establish payers and give out zakah, those who fulfill promise when they promise, those who patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the true ones and those are the pious once
The above are the attributes of a true Muslim who proclaimed to be practicing Islam. As a Muslim these are what you should be doing to defend Islam, let’s people see the beauty of Islam in you
