The Muslims of the world:

Homogenous when it comes to core beliefs and essential practices of Islam like daily prayers, fasting, etc Like followers of international religions, Muslims are not homogenous in their interpretation and practice of Islam. History, dominant culture, government, and social factors influence them. S O D H A R C O U R T E S Y

Why Muslims are positive about Islam?:

Why Muslims are positive about Islam? Islam brought liberation and justice for the underprivileged; the poor and women. No nation can claim a monopoly on Islam. Everyone is welcome to enter. The Muslim clergy, in general, defended the rights of the oppressed and constituted the moral and vocal opposition to tyrants and dictatorships.

The Muslim Women:

The Muslim Women The first to accept Muhammad’s message was his wife Khadija. Many of his followers were women who embraced Islam before their spouses or fathers. Islam gave women the following rights, 1400 years ago: The right to decide their future Muslim husbands. The right to a definite share of the estate of a father, husband or children. A will cannot take away or abrogate this right. The right to own property independently of their husbands or children. The right to education. The right to conduct their own commercial business. The right to participate in politics.

The Muslim Women:

The Muslim Women The family/home is the focus of the majority of Muslim women; many qualified women don’t work, or defer work, for the sake of looking after their children (usually longer than the Canadian average). The relationship between a man and a woman is to be established only through marriage with mutual, mostly traditional, roles and commitments. Muslim men and women are urged “to keep the temptation away” and to remain faithful to their spouses. To achieve this: Men are requested to lower their gaze when talking to women and not to indulge in their beauty. Women are requested to dress modestly and cover their hair; they display their beauty only to their near family. Separation between men and women, with various rigour and degrees in different societies, at schools, work and social functions Women keeping maiden names

PowerPoint Presentation:

Muslims have existed fundamentally and irreparably in a state of conflict with the Judeo-Christian civilization. Islam is fundamentally aggressive or totalitarian. Jihad can always have a radicalizing potential upon any and all Muslims. Muslims have different sets of standards or rules when dealing with non-Muslims Myths Realities

Dealing with Muslims:

Muslims take their religion, and its symbols, very seriously. Muslims invoke prayers frequently in their daily chores. Muslim women are required to dress modestly and not to show their beauty except to near family. Muslims are not supposed to sit or meet alone with members of the opposite sex. Muslims are respectful of elders, women and persons of authority. Out of respect they may not look you in the eye, not because they are avoiding you. Muslims have dietary restriction; mainly they are not allowed to eat pork, wild animals or animal slaughtered improperly. Islam forbids alcoholic beverages and drugs. Dealing with Muslims

Winning the Muslims:

While the absolute majority are law-abiding citizens, they’ll feel uneasy about cooperation with the police for the following reasons: Police in countries of origin represents the repression of the state and the corruption of its apparatus. The perception, growing stronger everyday, about a hidden agenda against Islam and Muslims. US/western countries policies (foreign and domestic) are perceived as biased against Islamic issues. Muslims feel under siege especially with increased scrutiny, stereotype and frenzy. Winning the Muslims

Winning the Muslims:

Know them better; their religion and culture(s). Communicate with leaders and institutions to build trust and cooperation. Solicit advice from leaders on handling issues and situations. PR directed at Muslims and participation in Muslim events to socialize with Muslims. Affirmative recruitment of Muslims to the force. Show respect and understanding: soft approach works better than hard one. Winning the Muslims
