Anti-Bullying Poster by Imperius-Rex Anti-Bullying Poster by Imperius-Rex
O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one's brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: "O sinner", or "O wicked", etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zalimun (wrong-doers, etc.).
-Qur'an (49:11), Muhsin Khan Transliteration.

This is an Anti-Bullying poster done in Response to DeviantART's Spirit Week. Brushes used can be found here in my Brush Listing. Bullying can happen to anyone regardless of age, race, religion, gender, or sexuality and is very wrong no matter who it is aimed against. This deviation isn't about just one motive or another, but is meant to speak out against bullying as a whole regardless of who it's to or why it's done.

It's great! I think it's unfortunate that here in the US we tend to only hear the more negative verses of the Quaran unless you look into it for yourself. I'm not religious but I'd support any religious community who is standing up for a good thing. Glad you're speaking up on such an important issue and working to remind others of it as well. Was there an event that prompted you making the poster?

Wish people would understand the Quran better.

Too many people assume it's a violent text when it really isn't.

In fact from what I understand it's less violent than the bible.

Indeed, the Qur'an is full of compassion and mercy.

However the Bible cannot be completely discredited despite it's multiple changes and corruptions. Much of what Christians believe and practice is not part of the Bible and in many cases contradicts it's meaning. This is only worsened by the fact that many Christians like to cherry-pick and reject large parts of the Bible that they don't like or disagree with. Another problem is when leaders among their faith choose to take individual verses out of context to support a personal view or agenda, sometimes not even quoting the verse in full. Ultimately, the greatest problem Christians face is by not reading the Bible for themselves and deciding whether or not the Christian faith is right for them. :)
