His translated answer is scripted below:
Islam is a religion that Allah sent down, so that it may be a religion of mercy for the people; and a religion of love, harmony, brotherhood, forgiveness and ease. This is the religion of Allah.
The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said,
“I was sent with pure monotheism and ease”.
And he also said,
“Make things easy and not difficult. Give glad tidings and do not turn people away”.
Our religion Islam is founded upon moderation, justice, forgiveness, love, creating harmony and unifying the Muslims. It is incumbent on every Muslim, male and female, to feel that they are sending a great message; and to feel that they are an example to be followed; and that they are Ambassadors of Islam sent to all places.
So a Muslim, in reality is an Ambassador everywhere he or she goes.
He or she is an Ambassador for this religion, the religion of Muhammad ﷺ.
This religion is founded on moderation, justice, love, brotherhood and harmony.
This religion encompasses all people and includes all. All people enter its shade, its mercy and its justice. This religion neither has extremism nor terrorism; Nor unjust bloodshed and fighting; Nor oppression towards Muslims and non-Muslims.
It is impermissible in Islam for someone to be killed unjustly. It is impermissible to kill innocents, Muslim or not. As long as they are innocent, it is impermissible.
It is impermissible to harm other souls. Or unjustly take their possessions, wealth and honor. This is the religion of Allah.
So it is incumbent that we portray a good image and present this great religion, that God sent down, in an image that is luminous.
As the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ used to do so along with his noble companions, may Allah be pleased with them.
