When times look bleak and it is easy to feel the world is against Islam and hate all Muslim, a light shows through

Again as is often the case it is the youth that with their energy come forth as noble knights in a Jihad. These magnificent young Muslims are the true Muhajidun and heroes. The Jihad of today is not against foreign kafirun, like the most dangerous of Shaytan it is within our own.

Today there are those in this world those who do atrocities and dare wear the name of Muslim. They may very well be Muslim, but their actions are against Islam, even though they claim to be defending Islam. This like all inner Jihads is among the most difficult of battles.

But Muslim youth have come forward and are fighting a noble war, not with swords, guns or bombs, but with the best weapons for the era. Their weapons are communication, wise words and the use of technology

Let us all support the Muhajidun that fight under the banner of #NOTINMYNAME

The campaign was originally launched by UK charity Active Change Foundation (ACF) following the murder of British aid worker David Haines.

A #notinmyname video released by the charity last week has been viewed more than 60,000 times.

Hundreds of Muslims have gathered near the Grand Mosque in Paris to condemn the execution of the French tourist, Herve Gourdel, by Islamic State-linked jihadists and the rise of Islamophobia caused by it.

The demonstrators were holding up placards, reading “"Tribute to Herve Gourdel” and "God is merciful" as well as signs with NotInMyName hastag.
