in response to reader comment: Why Islam

Submitted by hAJRa hADi (India), Sep 21, 2007 at 11:52

Hello brother Watson.

>To start with i must say your statements make it so easy for me to prove a point from therein itself
like the way u said

"Firsly more people than ever are converting to ISlam although many muslims are becoming Christians "

So you agree more "people" than ever are reverting to Islam lately. then you immediately get some statistics , which dunno where you collected from that many muslims are becoming christians:). I dont say none would have converted from islam...afterall its Allah who guides..and has power to bring Anyone to the straight path and also the power to leave us to go astray...

>Yes Muslims believe that all human beings are Infact born as a Muslim ..but if they are born in a non-believing family,they usually tend to get influenced , effected,by their surroundings and start following whatever faith their family belongs to.
Now as for why people become muslims based on some political reasons or politics..I have no insight of peoples mind..you do?
Ever heard of why they revert from the reverts themselves?..if i brief you up with what "reverts" i met or watched over T.V.or read through mails have to tell,then you will not be surprised that there are so many reverts.
..and when you will watch how people like Popes ...young students...blacks ..whites..browns skins..all have their reasonings..for considering and admitting :
They were having a constant reckless, disturbed and unhappy life until they discovered Islam..some also say they were not aware of the Solace their souls experienced post reversion..like a person who did not see light and thought darkness was all that exits..
and the divine intervension opens their eyes to the beauty of "light"of Islam that gave their soul the Solace and Peace they were searching all their lives in their previous faith system.

I have mentioned a book for reference - < ISLAM The Final Choice by Badar Azimabadi-1995(1st edition,1997(2nd edition)>which
i hope is better than your dispatches and non reliable InvestigateIslam sites/newspapers... after all who doesn't know how much manipulation is done by media... a kid would even know.

As for the whole Iraq thing i dont even feel the need to give sensus of how many Muslims were killed..and how many soldiers.
Also it was not a communial war..it was for power ..just imagine the deal of suffering the locals had to go through in any case.
So if i go about presenting how Muslims are being put into bad light and how they are smartly represented as "the culprits behind every thing ranging from the 11/9 attacks to a little blast are all some Muslim groups"

Bad way of maligning a religion...and who doesn't know 11/9 was an inside job kindly ask president Mr.Bush..he wil probly whisper in you ear n brief you up with it :)

And the Holy Quran and Hadiths is full of text discriminating in colour ?
and you further go on to add "Christians being racist is by ignorant choice but Islam has racism written into her text and her hadiths. Muslims say in Iraq they don't want to be governed by African Americans as they are low!"

What a just criteria you adopt for justifying the acts of blacksheeps among christians ..they are poor ignorant people isn't it ?
All tactics are found in muslims alone huh.Why do we forget ALL COMMUNITIES HAVE THEIR SET OF BLACK SHEEPS,
based on which you can't jump to a conclusion that the whole community is black,INDECENTLY maligning a religion and its values-even before you understand it .

Coming to understanding of a religion you ought to know 2 things-
>First if you wish to pass a direct offensive comment on a religion- you better get through reading and understanding all it says (accurately)going for not numerous books but the only reliable sources..The Holy Quran and the couple of Sahih Hadith books like-Sahih Al-Bukhari,Al-Muslim,Tirmidhi and couple on prescription from some reliable religious Scholars.-Trust me, you wil actually be ashamed for the comments you randomly passed.
>And 2ndly,i doubt if you have the ability to understand the scripture considering your weak language skills as comes across when you said "Black skin and Judgment Day:

On the Day when (some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened" etc etc..1 simple question to you Mr.Watson you are actually from U.K? cause from what i have known the people from there have not just a great command of english -being their local language but also an affluent accent.
Strange you couldn't sense what "(some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened" means..do you notice the "will be" there? .O.k i dont wish to strain your brain and i will be generous and enlighten you on that.

When it says some faces will be blackened -it implies that based on our deeds we sent forth are judged based on which if you are a sinner your face and even the people with good set of deeds are blesed with their faces being whitened-brightened..so Allah doesn't play an unfair role in judging -even if its a muslim is dealt with ,with justice.

In fact Almighty strictly forbids discrimination on the grounds of colour,race,etc. asking us to make life simple and plain without showoff,extravagant/lavish living or even being stingy/miserly are all disapproved by Our(your and my)Almighty.
so kindly dont try to misrepresent any religion based on your notions/presumptions whatever they are by quoting verses "OUT OF CONTEXT" making them look wrong and harsh to some1 completely new to the whole idea of Islam or for that matter any religion.

As even i can go pages talkin about how The Holy Quran is Mashallah UNCHANGED to a dot til the date..unlike many other scriptures like Bible..tell me how many "Latest versions".."NEW PSALMS" etc have come up ...no count? what reliability that means...meageR?
But its pointless only picking at other religions n blowing your trumpet of " Islam this..jews that Christians right...or so n so sn so..."
As for whether our Beloved Prophet Mohommed (P.B.U.H) was black or not in skin..who saw him? its that irrelevant for us that we dont care if he was Blackest in skin colour couse a person is judges and respected by Acts in islam n the right faith system ofcourse.Not like we have a right to call you wrong and names..so i am trying to do here is clear your misconceptions.

Cause Yea if someone addresses our Prophet( P.B.U.H) as black the context has to be undertood..if they call him black as a person..i say I m first to agree they gotta be slaughtered. Cause then you are offending my religious values and making a vague remark. But Even if he was and you call Him black in skin ..i say its perfectly okay if he really was one.:)

Theres just too much to even mention friend.So kindly start looking at things right if you cant..don't pass blind remarks on anyone or any religion

However, irrespective of your opinionated prejudiced comments, i still feel your effort to talk about Islam -learning about it is appreciable indeed.

May Almighty ALLAH (S.W.T)guide us all to the "siraat-al-mustaqeem"removing the veils of ignorance from their eyes and seals set on their hearts -Ameen.
peacE :)
