 102 Minutes in Pentagon Change the World
by: Siti Lailatul Hajar
Tragedy on September 11, 2001 as long as around 102 minutes has led to the media giving Islam a lot of attention. Islam and Muslims have been accused as terrorist after World Trade Center (WTC) Tragedy in Pentagon, in the United States of America. People assume that Muslim’s creed brings to violence. Although, the media has mostly reported negatively about Muslims and Islam, it has made people research about Islam curiously. This has attracted many people to find the truth about Islam and readily accept it as their faith. World Trade Center bombing tragedy has brought Islam to be a very-well known religion in the United States and interested Europeans to be Muslims.
To begin with, through this tragedy, Islam has been familiar in the United States. First, American passionately begin to learn more about Islam. In Al-Hayat, London daily Newspaper, American are now interested in getting to know Islam is appeared by thousands of non-Muslim American have responded to invitations to visit mosques to listen Islamic speech. Besides, the number of Islamic books and Holy Quran highly increase. Al-Hayat reports that libraries have run out of books on Islam, and English translations of the Quran head the American best-seller list. In addition, Aly R Abuzaakouk, Director of American Muslim Council (AMC), said that many Islamic books sold in whole areas in the United States. People there pursued Islamic books to inquire about Islam. Similarly, Executive Director of Council on American-Islamic Relation (CAIR), Dr Nihad Awad, told that the most popular sold-book after WTC tragedy is Islamic books, included Quran. Moreover, many American convert to Islam. In a New York Times article, Islam Attracts Converts by the Thousands, contains interviews with converts, analyses Islam's rapid rise in the United States, and states: with some 6 million adherents in the United States, Islam is said to be the nation's fastest-growing religion, fueled by immigration, high birth rates and widespread conversion. One expert estimates that 25,000 people a year become Muslims in this country; some clerics say they have seen conversion rates quadruple since September 11, 2001. So, now many American get a true principle about Islam and turn to Islam.
Furthermore, the acceptance of Islam in Europe turns much better. In several countries such as Germany and France, Islam attracts many followers. The study sheds light on a phenomenon that in Germany, some 4,000 people converted to Islam between July 2004 and June 2005. Likewise, the study, which was financed by the Interior Ministry and carried out by the Soest-based Muslim institute Islam Archive Germany, reveals that the number of converts increased four-fold in comparison to the previous year in Germany. Whether increasing follower in French as in a June 20, 2004 story on NTV News, headed Islam is the most rapidly expanding religion in Europe, dealt with a report drawn up by the French domestic intelligence agency. The report stated that the number of those converting to Islam in Western countries had risen still further, particularly in the wake of World Trade Center bombing tragedy attacks. For example, the number of converts to Islam in France increased by between 30 and 40,000 last year alone. While, The Pew Research Center (October 2009) estimates the number of Muslims in Europe in 2009 at 38.1 million, which according to their data constitutes 5.2 percent of the European population. So that, bombing tragedy in Pentagon has attracted European to be Muslims.
In short, many American and European open their eyes about Islam since World Trade Center bombing tragedy. They know well what Islam is. Although there are plenty of mosques and Muslims in the west countries, many Muslims are suffered, and discrimination to Muslims is still high. Therefore, as a good Muslim should give a kind model that Islam is a peace religion for all people in the world.
