In face of the attacks on Islam by the disbelievers, some Muslims turn to the defensive with an inner feeling of defeat as they try to show that the Islamic values are no different from the western ones. If they are told that the Islamic political system is dictatorial, they respond by trying to show it is democratic. If they are told that Islam spread with Jihad, they respond that Muslims fought only to defend themselves when attacked. If they are told that there is a problem with the status of women in Islam, they try to prove that Islam allows polygamy only under strict conditions which most men do not fulfill and hence they conclude it is virtually not allowed! Such apologetic attitudes should be put behind. Islam is a way of life given to us by Allah, it cannot be put on the same level as other man-made ideologies or corrupted revelations. Muslims should have enough confidence in themselves to go on the offensive rather than stay on the defensive like an accused person. When Quraysh accused the Muslims of violating the sanctity of the sacred months on the occasion of the fight between the Muslim brigade of Abdullah bin Jahsh and the disbelievers, Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala revealed: “They ask you concerning fighting in the Sacred Months (these are the 1st, 7th, 11th and 12th months of the Islamic calendar). Say: ‘Fighting therein is a great transgression but a greater transgression in the Sight of Allah is to prevent mankind from following the Way of Allah, to disbelieve in Him, to prevent access to al-Masjid al-Haram (Makkah), and to drive out its inhabitants, and polytheism is worse than killing. And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will be the dwellers of the Fire. They will abide therein forever.” (Qur’an 2:217) This is how the Qur’an argues with the disbelievers. The Qur’an starts by attacking them on their greatest crime: their disbelief in Allah and their association of partners with Him. One should not present a false interpretation of our religion for the purpose of pleasing the disbelievers.

Bilal Abdul Kareem, is an American Muslim activist living in Syria who documents the lives of fighters and aid workers in Syria for Channel4. In this episode he talks to Tauqir who lives near the Turkish border with his British wife Racquell Hayden-Best, who is 21. When they married three years ago, he already had a long history of activism – he was one of those aboard the Gaza aid flotilla which was raided by Israeli forces in 2010. An excerpt of the story:
"I feel the whole world has turned a blind eye to Syria. We don't want to be sitting here in five years' time, wondering why we didn't prevent another genocide. I feel it's the duty of all Muslims to help."
The Nottingham University graduate believes he has a religious obligation, but an obligation based on his very British upbringing. "I grew up in an ordinary, middle-class family. But we were always taught, growing up in the UK, that if we see injustice, we should step in and do something about it."
Racquell says she was keen to travel with him to Syria, despite the dangers. "I had a very protected upbringing," she says. "I wanted to get out and see the world. Life in the UK, it was depressing, it was like a robot life, doing the same things every day. Now Tauqir is doing what he wants to do. I'm happy because he's happy."

It is being harassed on public transport, constantly being asked, ''Where are you from?'' when you've lived here most of your life, not getting a job interview because of your Middle Eastern-sounding name, or missing out on a rental property because of your skin colour.
This is how racism looks in Australia today - and it is becoming increasingly prevalent.

Question: As salaam 'alaikum, Jazaak Allaah Khair for the detail answers to my previous question, however I would like you to clarify further some issues. You stated, in your previous answer, that you thought of the du'at in the west as being "Uncle Toms". With reference to this statement how would you openly address the issues of the ummah (with hikmah) as I think many of the du'at do not speak out due to imprisonment... in other words what should they do?
Response by Brother Tariq: I disagree that it's simply a matter of fear for Uncle Tom. If someone is afraid, they'll stay quiet, OK. But when we see Uncle Tom go beyond silence, when we see him go out of his way to water down Islam – in coordination with its enemies, at that – this tells us that a problem exists which runs far deeper than fear. As you know, there have been many ideological attacks on Islam over the centuries, and with each one, you find that the scholars responded to it in one three ways:
