Sumba!!!

Very rarely I find logical statements here...and yours is one of them...to the point and perfect.

EU is not a bloodline or oxygen and Turkey can live without entering it...nothing special! This thinking is the necessity of today...because...seeing west as solution...is now a failed thought..Keep believing in yourself...Turkey will change and will become a role model Islamic state..without disturbing Hadith..and Quran...West and specially Infidels would not find slightest of success in bringing any harmful reform to Islam...The religion is guarded by Allah...and so the sacred & secured Quran and Hadith..

I am sure people who are advocating reforms are judged in the light of Quran where Allah says

CLEAR PROOF
[98:1] Those who disbelieved from among the People of the Book and the polytheists were not (expected) to desist (from their wrong beliefs) unless there comes to them a clear proof, [98:2] a messenger from Allah who recites the purified scrolls [98:3] containing (right and) straight writings. [98:4] And those who were given the Book did not disagree but after the clear proof came to them, [98:5] while they were not ordered but to worship Allah, making their submission exclusive for him with no deviation, and to establish Salāh and pay Zakāh . That is the way of the straight religion. [98:6] Surely those who disbelieved from among the People of the Book and the polytheists will be in the fire of Jahannam , in which they will be living forever. Those are the worst of all human beings. [98:7] As for those who believed and did righteous deeds, they are the best of all human beings. [98:8] Their reward, with their Lord, is gardens of eternity beneath which rivers flow, in which they will be abiding forever. Allah is well pleased with them, and they are well pleased with Him. That (reward) is for him who has awe of his Lord.
