What do we owe to the west
By living in the west for 20 years and being raised up here I see and question myself. What do the Muslims owe to the west??? What do WE as individuals owe to the west???
At one place I see our own people critizising that they are Muslims, yet they are involved in drug dealing and crimes. Our own attitude has lead the west to think Muslims as a burden on the society. Yet by looking back just 100 years, Muslims were the most respected humans and the earth. We cannot change the past and what has happened, we need to change the present and ourselves.
We owe a lot to the West. They provide us with free education, social security, welfare system, free medication and many more. What do the so called "Islamic Countries" provide??? Nothing. You cannot even raise your voice against the government, or else this can mean death or jail sentence.
I hear many so called "Muslims" saying that the west doesn't provide a jack sh** and claim that the best countries are "Islamic countries". they do not realise how much the Western government (which they live under) have supported them.
What we need to do is change ourselves. Don't fight over small issues, eliminate jealously in our own communities, and encourage education among ourselves. This will be a very good contribution to the societies we live in the west.
What do we owe to the West is a key question I would therefore request you to think about.
