Verse from The Final Testament and the Cartoon controversy

There is a striking verse in the Final Testament: The Quran, which is very relevant to the current cartoon controversy as well as for the islamophobia that is present in the west...

*In the name of God, the Most Compassionate, the Merciful*

You shall certainly be tried respecting your wealth and your souls, and you shall certainly hear from those who have been given the Scripture before you (The Jews and Christians) and from those who are polytheists much annoying wrong talk; and if you are patient and guard (against evil), surely this is one of the affairs (which should be) determined upon. :: Quran 3.186

For the Muslims around the globe, the verse has enough food for thoughts. Pin It Now!
