Jennifer,

At one time in history when the west was in the dark, Islam and Islamic community were at their best of civilization, europeans came to the Islamic land to enhale the culture and the Islamic books and take them back to their countries.

The power shift on this earth is rotational, before it was the pharaohs, then the persians, the romans & byzantine, then Islam then British and europe, then America,

then Perhaps China and India, then back to Arabia and Islam - (chronoligical order could be different),

but for sure we are now witnessing the decline of American domination in this world gradually.

Because the Muslims and their rulers swayed away from the right teachings of Islam, the decline in their empire and power started to take place , and slowly they lost it all until the 20th century when they lost it completely.

The Muslims were not on the right track, and their rulers are far from it. but we are witnessing a gradual come back specially among the young, and we do expect some time in the near future around 20 year from now a new generation of leaders and newly emerging good Muslims who will abide by the book. Then God will help them and support their cause to show the world the truth about Islam, then Islam will become a dominant religion in the world.

Saying that you don't have to be alarmed because Islam is a merciful, passionate religion according to the original teachings, and once the newer generations will follow what is in the book, they definately will be more merciful and passionate.

The Quran unlike the bible - Cannot be changed because the author is GOD, and any changes has to by done by the Author. -

Reformation in the Islamic community is by abiding to the teachings of the Book and the Prophet's teachings. Once Muslims follow that, the God will be on their side.

Let us wait and see -
