Who gets to define what the true face of Islam is?

true face of islam

The current Christian President of the United States?  He would seem hardly qualified to do so.  He claims to be Christian and not schooled in that faith.  Even his predecessor, a very devout Christian, suggested what is and what is not true Islam.  The current and former Secretaries of State, also Christians have deemed themselves qualified to tell us what is the “true face of Islam.”   Yet, none of these people are qualified to tell anyone, especially Muslims, what defines the true face of their religion.  To do so is the height of arrogance.

I do not pretend to know what the true face of Islam is.  What I do know with certainty is that the extremist Islamist groups like ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and others  are at least ONE FACE OF ISLAM.  That much is undeniable.  It is left to the world’s Muslims to decide within their faith what the true face of Islam will be.  No Christian President, leader or head of state can presume to define it for them
