Expect the best from Allah  
"Allah probably hates me. I am so bad; I always mess up. I don't deserve any good from Allah , and as punishment, I probably will not be given success in my other endeavors."

How many people have felt this way at some point? Sometimes, our sins weigh heavily on us. We recognize our mistakes but instead of turning back to Allah , we turn away. We feel that we must be so bad that even the All-Merciful will reject us. Other times, we do not see the fruits of our perseverance and believe that we will not be given what we have worked so hard for. Perhaps we do not even begin an endeavor, thinking there is no use.

Unfortunately, when we do this, we attribute human qualities to Allah . We act as if Allah has some grudge against us that will heal as soon as He punishes us or rejects one of our requests. We act as though Allah is just waiting for us to slip up and say "Ha! Caught you!" We assume that we have to "deserve" the mercy of Allah by being almost perfect. This sounds absurd when articulated, but our actions unfortunately indicate that we believe otherwise.

Do Muslims lie to spread Islam?  
The Anti-Muslim demagogues love to talk about this weird, so called, rule that permits Muslims to lie to spread Islam. I had never even heard of it until I was accused of it by an acolyte of Pamela Geller. The basic idea, according to them, is that if any Muslim ever denies being a blood thirsty lunatic engaged in perpetual war against the West, they must be lying. Muslims are simply presumed guilty, and if we profess innocence that is only further evidence of our guilt. 

It should be fairly clear to any rational being that lying to spread a religion is nonsensical. If I lie to you about what Islam is and you convert I haven't spread Islam because what you have accepted was a lie.

Robert Spencer and others often cite a book from the 14th century as evidence, Umdat al-Salik by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri. So I looked up Taqiyya in the index. All it says is, "Taqiyya: See Head covering." So, that's a dead end. Although, there is a section on permissible lying. The examples given in the book are concealing an innocent person from an oppressor, lying to a thief about one's possessions, and if one is asked about a sin committed in private that, "does not concern the rights of another" it is permitted to deny committing the sin. Take that for what it's worth.
