In the months leading up to Eid al-Fitr, hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world will gather to mark the occasion.
They are expected to watch and participate in the annual Muslim festival of Eid al Adha, a traditional holiday in which Muslims are expected not to eat, drink or smoke.
In a recent Pew Research Center poll, 57 percent of Muslims said they do not eat or drink during Eid al Fitr, which is when Muslims gather in mosques for the annual fasting period.
The Pew Research poll also found that a majority of Muslims in most countries say they do “not believe in the afterlife” and that “people of faith are not required to follow the Muslim faith.”
Many Muslims are also reportedly not following their religious obligation to cover their faces during Ramadan, and many religious scholars, such as Imam Shafi al-Din al-Bayat, have advocated for a return to traditional Islamic clothing during Eid.
For some Muslims, this is a matter of personal preference, and some may prefer not to wear burqas during the Muslim holy month.
However, in light of the recent spike in the number of Muslims worldwide who are reportedly opting out of wearing their hair covered in head scarves, there is a growing number of Muslim leaders and scholars who are calling for a shift in the way Muslims are perceived.
These calls come from Muslim leaders, scholars, academics and even some of the world’s most prominent religious figures.
Some scholars, for example, have called for a change in the ways Muslims are seen in media and on social media.
A group of Muslim scholars recently published a list of suggestions to address the perceived problems of the current image of Muslims as a group of devout believers.
These suggestions include: Muslims should be more transparent about their religion and practices and their belief systems.
Muslims should avoid stereotypes, such that they are depicted as peaceful, kind, caring and tolerant.
Muslims, like any other religious group, should be allowed to practice their faith in their own way, without being judged for their actions.
Muslims who are not following religious norms should be encouraged to express their opinions freely and be seen as individuals who do not fit a narrow religious model.
Muslims must not be judged on their religion or ethnicity.
Muslims are not a monolithic group and the current images of Muslims, especially those in the West, are not representative of the diverse, vibrant and inclusive Muslims who live in the Muslim world.
These recommendations are a welcome step, but they are not enough to address this problem.
Instead, they need to include the voices of Muslims who do follow the Islamic faith, but have been marginalized by the cultural and religious context in which they live, as well as the many ways in which their faith is being portrayed as divisive and intolerant.
The problems of Islam as a community and its image have existed for decades.
As a result, it is not surprising that there is much confusion, distrust and even hostility toward Muslims worldwide.
For many Muslims, the perception that Islam is an oppressive and exclusionary faith is a primary reason for not following the faith, according to the Muslim community’s first ever Global Muslim Voices survey.
The survey found that more than two-thirds of Muslims do not believe that Islam can be reformed, and only 27 percent of Muslim respondents believe that the teachings of Islam are completely compatible with Western values.
It is this perception that led to the widespread use of “sharia law” to describe the legal system in the Middle East.
“Sharia law is a political and religious term that is used to describe an interpretation of Islamic law, and as such, it has been used to justify oppressive regimes, which often treat their citizens as second-class citizens,” said Ali Sadeq, the Muslim Association of South Africa’s Executive Director.
The global Muslim community is also experiencing an increased sense of isolation and marginalization.
In addition to the growing Islamophobia and violence directed at Muslims around a variety of issues, some Muslim leaders are also concerned about a growing sense of marginalization among Muslim communities in the United States.
Many Muslim leaders have become disillusioned with the U.S. political system and have been calling for more transparency, more inclusion, and more openness from U.s. political leaders.
These leaders are calling on politicians to do the right thing and to work with their Muslim constituents and the Muslim American community.
“The Muslim American population is a major constituency that is currently being ignored by the mainstream political establishment,” said Sadej.
“We are seeing that a lot of Muslim-American politicians, who are either pro-Israel or pro-Saudi, are being viewed by many as anti-Muslim, and this is very dangerous.
There is a need for Muslims to have their voices heard, and the mainstream media has a responsibility to provide us with unbiased coverage of the Muslim-Muslim conflict in the U
