“As a Muslim, make sure your actions are not against the teachings and the principles of the Holy Qur’an. Make sure you are not deviating from the ways of Rosullullah (Prophet Muhammed-SAW), if you do anything that brings about uprising, killing, riot and the rest of
them, surely within yourself you know that this is not Islam and if you are doing this, you are misrepresenting Islam.
“You should know anywhere you are that you are an ambassador of Allah, ambassador of Islam, an ambassador of the holy Quran. Whatever you do, they will attach it to your religion, your book and your prophet definitely; so whatever you do must be in accordance with the teachings of the holy Qur’an and sunna of Rosulullah,” he said.
