The Islamic Culture – Teaching Peace and Unity

In the recent past, it has become common that Islam as a religion is condemned as a religion of aggression and negativity. This stereotype has greatly been propagated and fronted by paranoid people who have not taken time to actually understand what exactly the Islamic Culture is all about. This culture is one of the most peaceful cultures in the entire world and contrary to what many people think, it is actually a culture that fosters peace and unity.
Right from the historical days when the Islamic Culture was beginning to spread, there was emphasis on the aspect so of peace, love, joy, unity and togetherness. Along the way, some radical people thought that this message of peace was too soft and so they looked for ways to alter the perception of the culture. Having said this, the truth in this culture lies in the fact that it continues to preach against disunity and any aspect of human life that are destructive. It is no surprise that from time immemorial, the culture has encouraged people to share with others, to give to the poor and to look after the less privileged as it recognizes the fact that some people are less fortunate in life than others. It is the responsibility of the more fortunate people to look after their brothers and sisters who might be unfortunate.
The concept of the Islamic Culture is one that many people have failed to understand and this is why there is plenty of hate and fear towards Islam as a whole. However, for a culture that teaches equality and truth, there can be no mistaking what its true intentions are. There are many non Islamic people who live among the Islamic people and they often confess that they never receive more love from anywhere else as compared to the love they receive from those who practice this Culture.
