Salamun Alaikum.

How are you my dear uncle?

I hope uncle Shabbir and family are in a good health.

Uncle, today I open the Our Beacon site and tried to learn from the forum, as usual.

And I found uncle's statement about some negative posts need to be deleted under the subject PUN.

I am grateful that I see uncle Shabbir is very concerned about things like this.

I agree with you, uncle. I strongly agree if the kind of negative posts is immediately deleted.

I mean this one is the most that quite bother me:

How does Moses make his tea?
Hebrews it.

What if this sort of thing is done using the name "Muhammad"? :(

I truly appreciate if it was immediately deleted from the forum on Our Beacon.

I think we should respect all messengers of God with great sincerity and love.

Since, there is no benefit if we put the name of the prophet for this kind of joking stuff. Even I think, is not supposed to do.

I often feel disappointed if there are Muslims who (might unknowingly the risk of) doing things like this.

In my humble opinion, such statements could be said degrade prophet Moses. He is one of our beloved messengers. I hope other Muslims can feel it, too.

Prophet Moses is a messenger of God that we should honor and love, as we honor and love prophet Muhammad.

In my opinion, it would be better if we are more cautious in this kind of thing. God is the Most Subtle and God always pay attention to everything we do.

If muslims do not learn to be sensitive in this kind of case, then how can we expect non-muslims to stop making jokes using the names of the messengers of God.

Was already quite painful for me to see some of the atheists and agnostics who insulted the messengers of God.

I hope I do not overdo this. I just hope that this sort of thing is not considered as trivial thing.

Thank you, uncle. May God always give you patience and strength to always keep the forum in order to stay positive.

Yours sincerely,

Nina Sutrisno
