Reader comment on item: Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad
in response to reader comment: Taj: Islam the ulitmate in control - of body, mind, society and state

Islam is different from any other religion, it is PERFECT no matter what any one thinks, including Moslems. Why? Because God said so.

The Quran is not just a collection of stories, it contains the guidelines for a human being productive, successful, happy and well rounded life.

Islam is the religion of realistic life. Islam do not require those who wish to become "pastor" to live a life of solitary!. Nor it separate religion form life. In Islam working, studying, taking care of the children are all part of worship. Being a Moslem is not something that you do on Sunday morning. It is about intertwining your life with your religion so it becomes one. Islam is a Moslem's identity no matter what his/her color, language, nationality, gender…..etc

Therefore it is no wonder that Moslems request that the guidelines and rules of Islam becomes part of the rules of the country that they live in. But almost always these rules have to be modified to fit the special nature of every society and age. Because Islam is created to last for ever, therefore it is flexible so it would adapt with all the changes that occur in the world just like any good logistical system would do. For example 25 years ago cyber crimes were almost unheard of, and we could not sentence those criminals. But now legislation and rules are founded to solve this problem.

Please try to be logical when you are talking about Islam, try not to go with main stream, don't be a follower to media. Be an original, if you want to learn about Islam, go to the source, the Quran.
