Nowadays, when people talk about Islam, they will always associate Islam with terrorism and a religion which oppress its believers especially the women. The truth is, Islam is a beautiful religion and it is like a manual on the way we should lead our lives. However, because of the propaganda made by the West, people only see Islam as they see it now. But, in a program called ONE FAMILY on MAJD channel, the beauty of Islam was potrayed when the speaker, Dr.Yahya Alyahya (head of the CALL to Islam Committee) shared his story.
Dr. Yahya Alyahya said that Muslims are never disorganized; they just need to be CONVINCED. Then he told a story of a non-muslim American who was discussing with him about Islam while watching a live broadcast of Isha’ prayer from Makkah.
The American man was so amazed of how crowded was the masjid, more than 3 million Muslims were there at the last nights of the holy month of Ramadan, so crowded, so disorganized and scattered everywhere around the mosque.
The sheikh then asked the non-muslim man, “How long do you think they'll take to organize themselves in rows and start the Salaat?”
The man answered, “At least 2-3 hours”.
Then the sheikh said, “But the masjid (HARAM) of Kaaba has 4 floors”.
The man said, “Oh, this will make it about 12 hours then”.
The sheikh said, “Put in your mind that they are from countries all over the world with different languages”.
The American man said: “THEN IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO ORGANIZE THEM BY ANY MEANS!!”
Then the Salaat time came, and Sheikh Sudais of Makkah stood up and said, “ESTAWOO” (Arrange yourselves).
And within seconds, the whole scene changed and the crowd of 3 million Muslims arranged themselves in well-organized rows in NO TIME !
The American man stared at the TV screen for a moment, and then said:
ASH-HADU ALLA ILAAHA ILLA ALLAH WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOHAMMADAN RASULULLAH.
