Whether you like it or not your kids are reading these books. They’re being affected by the subtle (seems overt to me) messaging. And I know most parents are not checking the content of these books. They think it’s harmless. Or they just don’t have the time to check them. Or they don’t even notice the problems that are in them. Whatever the reason, our kids are reading them and getting affected. The message is clear. They want Islam to be like Christianity, Judaism and all the other religions. Just something that’s in the heart, that doesn’t manifest in our lives at all. They want the scarf to just be a cultural symbol with no relation to our submission to Allah.
يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَQuran 61:8
They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.
وَلَن تَرْضَىٰ عَنكَ الْيَهُودُ وَلَا النَّصَارَىٰ حَتَّىٰ تَتَّبِعَ مِلَّتَهُمْ ۗ قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى اللَّهِ هُوَ الْهُدَىٰ ۗ وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءَهُم بَعْدَ الَّذِي جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ ۙ مَا لَكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن وَلِيٍّ وَلَا نَصِيرٍQuran 2:120
And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion. Say, “Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance.” If you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah no protector or helper.
I don’t understand non-Muslims fascination with Muslim women. In the past some people may have been sad, because they didn’t have “representation” in media, but honestly is this any better? This is far far worse.
Do our selves a favor. We can’t all be doctors and engineers. Some of us can and should create material for our own kids. A Muslim child who lives Islam in some capacity will much rather read a book about Muslim children who also lives that reality. As opposed to a non-Muslim with a scarf on their head, who has a crush on a kaafir, and a “religious” abusive father. Allah help us.
