dear jan

i dont care what people say about me but i know myself that i am not betrayed.

i ve read your article. whatever you say about prophet and in whatever tone in another thing. but i feel that you say what you feel right. if you have studied all these books and come to these conclusions you are right. most of the people who study come to these conclusions. this is why to study a religion doesnt help understand it. what about christianity, what about judaism, what about hinduism and buddism, is every thing clear there. i feel no. the followers of present day religions are far from their original shapes. there is nothing orginial in their ideas and practices i feel. whenever i happen to listen about some religion i have to hear a lot of contradictory statements.

the same is the case with islam.

your reasons are quite genuine. what you understand is quite right. you are not wrong. even then there are certain things you dont know. dont feel it. there are certain things beyond the books. if somebody studies relgion as a book or philosophy, literature or politics he will draw the same conclusions.

dear jan

try to be neutral. if you really want to find the truth, if you really dont intend to find somethng against islam or prophet. try to unlearn all these things you have read. forget every thing. try to communicate with the spirit of the prophet muhammad. try to communicate at least for three days in certain suitable hours of night. try to take bath, dress up neat and clean and sit in some secluded corner somewhere.

if you really want to know the truth, if you really want to know which religion is true, if you really want to travel your path to heaven, if you really want to avoid the way of evil, try to communicate with the prophet. even i say with any prophet, you will be guided rightly. this is the truth that lies beyond all books.

wish you good luck
