Why do you not believe in God almighty? I know that there are some religions that are hard to understand such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Jainism, and several more. But, however they set some standards on how to live; religion is more than something you believe in, it's a way of life. Take hinduism for example; there are so many gods you don't even understand who or what to worship, it's such a complex religion. And any way you have to worship idols that YOU made, you feed them, clothe them, bathe them and then you worship them?

I don't mean to insult followers of this religion, but it's just my point of view. Or Christianity for example, you confess your sins to a father or priest as if they can take them away and like if they decide whether or not you go to heaven or hell. Shall i go on? Buddism does not suggest an idea of any superior being, they follow the teaching of an indian prince who himself was a human.

Don't get me wrong or anything i respect all religions but sometimes i just dont get it. If you are devoted to something you should know about it: sometimes if you ask about why this or why that, the father or priest may say that its too complicated for humans to understand. But why? I will not say that Islam is better than all the other religions, it just fulfils all the answers i need to understand why there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger. In Arabic it is "La illaha il lal la muhammmadur rasullallah". These are the direct words of Allah revealed to us through his loving Prophet. The bible was changed and was written many years after the death o Jesus Christ. In islam he is known as Prophet Isa, may peace be upon him.

So you see, no matter how different we may be, we all have one search in life, to find the true creator of us all.
