Actions are judged by Intentions, aren’t they?
I have recently started to use Facebook again after a whole year of deactivation. And my newsfeed is filled with posts which show the benefits of Islam and how necessary is it to be a good person and photos of miracles of Allah (some of them are photoshopped). The thing which infuriates me is that why do people who are not practicing Muslims slap such stuff on our faces. For instance, a couple of ladies posted a photo of a healthy chicken and a chicken which had its feathers plucked out with the message, that this is how females look like without Hijab. And apparently the chicken looks beautiful when it is covered.
In my understanding, Islam teaches Muslims to first make themselves model Muslims rather than preaching the teachings to their fellow Muslims. The two ladies i mentioned above neither do Hijab and nor do they seem to be model Muslims. So, to criticize ladies who are just like them is brazen hypocrisy. Similarly, men also post such photos and statuses but if you observe their activity, many of them are a very different picture from what they present to the world. I mean, don’t you guys have that small inner voice in you screaming that what you are doing is wrong? And that you, yourself should learn from the so-called Islamic photos you post? Trust me, preaching the teachings of Islam to people even when you don’t follow them is plain hypocrisy and does not make you a good Muslim because even if you appear to be a good person in front of the world, Allah still knows your real face. As Prophet (PBUH) says, ‘Actions are judged by intentions’
