The implied meaning of a term like Insha Allah is to try one’s best to achieve the goal while acknowledging that the action is a Creation based on Allah’s Power. Yet, if it is uttered with other than this mentality, it is using Allah’s name in vain, treating the Lafdh al-Jalalah as a trivial matter – then when we see the disrespectful cartoons, videos, etc., we must remember that non-Muslims often see the seriousness with which we take our own Deen and respond accordingly; thus if nominal Muslims take the symbols and phrases of Islam with jest, then what is to be expected from non-Muslims who witness this?

Yes, it could be said that some people will hate Islam no matter what, but are we providing them with any excuse to make the manifestation of this hatred easier to propagate to the masses of people, to normal people who may have had a serious interest in Islam had we Muslims taken our Deen more seriously, rather than taken important symbols of our own religion in jest?
