Fight for Your Faith

Quran 2:190 (Surah-Al Baqarah)

Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.

This verse from Surah al-Baqarah 190 is one of my favorites in the entire Quran. An emphasis is placed on taking up arms in defense of God’s cause. In what ways can you serve God? For some, it was believed that the only way to appease God Almighty was to “fight” for one’s religious beliefs at all costs, even the lives of those who disagreed with them. It would be unfortunate if someone misunderstood verse 190 of this chapter (Surah-Al Baqarah).

Fight for Your Faith

I appreciate it so much because it serves as a constant reminder to all of us Believers that we must never stop fighting for our faith. To what extent do we need to fight for the cause of our beliefs? Even more so if someone is trying to make fun of your religion or if they hold solid religious ideas that contradict your own? Verse 190 of Surah al-Baqarah, is a sobering reminder that we must be respectful of other people’s religious beliefs and practices while guarding our own faith.

There’s no need for violence against each other. Instead, as Believers, we respectfully share our beliefs with others, intending to give them a better understanding.

It also means struggling against one’s own sinful inclinations. And most importantly, to resist the seductive urges that threaten our fellowship with the Creator. It is a constant caution not to go beyond the bounds of God’s law.

How wonderful is that?

Reflection

In light of my religious commitments, I need to learn about and advocate for tolerance. Ultimately, we have no business judging the morality of people of other faiths. God alone possesses such absolute power. I enjoy conversing and sharing with others about faith and spirituality that help strengthen our bonds with God and one another.

God promises in Surah al-Baqarah 190 that He favors those who are patient and kind, even when faced with disagreements.

Learning about Islam’s faith by reading the Quran is pretty interesting. Reading the Quran gives us a deeper appreciation for our individuality and a deeper understanding of God. Why don’t you give the Quran a try?
