I am pretty sure you have never read or even learnt about our Holy Qurˀān that you are burning. Our Holy Qurˀān orders us not to assault what you believe in, so as to stop any calls for aggression or assault. we are all brothers and sisters in humanity. Almighty Allah says,
“And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have made pleasing to every community their deeds. Then to their Lord is their return, and He will inform them about what they used to do.” (Qur’ān, 6:108)
Have you ever seen such an elegant attitude towards the other?
Our Holy Qurˀān, that you are burning, orders us to just abandon you and turn away whenever you insult such Noble Book. We could communicate once more if only you changed the topic. Almighty Allah says,
“And when you see those who engage in [offensive] discourse concerning Our verses, then turn away from them until they enter into another conversion. And if Satan should cause you to forget, then do not remain after the reminder with the wrongdoing people.” (Qur’ān, 6:68)
Our Holy Qurˀān, that you are burning, orders us to use the best methods of dialogue and argumentation. The Qurˀān also orders us to look for the common things between us so we can lead a constructive dialogue. Almighty Allah says,
“And do not argue with the People of the Scripture except in a way that is best, except for those who commit injustice among them, and say, ‘We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you. And our God and your God is one; and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.’” (Qur’ān, 29:46)
Our Holy Qurˀān, that you are burning, orders us to call you to follow the way of Allah, by using the finest words we could find. Almighty Allah says,
“Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided.” (Qur’ān, 16:125)
If you are looking for superior humane principles calling for freedom of speech, try to learn about the Qurˀān, you are burning.
