in response to reader comment: What is true and isn't true about Imam Abdul Makin and Attorney Choudary

Submitted by Aliyah (United Kingdom), Jul 12, 2008 at 06:07

You know what, there is not point trying to explain to you people because you will only try to look for the bad people who make up stuff and take wrong meanings from things and try to ruin. If that guy was an actual muslim, would he be trying to put Islam down in peoples eyes whether in truth or lies? I dont think anyone does that. Maybe you should think on it. Anyway I see you have a thing against muslims and nothing I say about islam not being that way is going to mean anything to you because you have made up your mind about islam being a barbaric religion and I'm not going to dusuade you from reading the lies people write and speak.

I can easily look for people from other religions who will a joke out of their own religion with so called quotes from their holy books but I am not like that. I don't belive in media or what people speak. I go to the source and read the proper book along with the true proper meaning not some made up meaning by people. Anyway for all its worth, I only read the first thign you listed and it was sick and not in accordance to my religion of Islam. I don't know which religion these so called muslims believe in who say or write that stuff. There are good and bad in every religion and I know from all I have learnt that Islam only teaches peace and love even in every little day to day thigns. Such as backbiting and slandering is forbidden because lies and speaking about people ruins lives and families. You cannot eat food if your neighbour is hungry. I will also give you a acouple of quotes to think about if you have the time from reading all the hate things about islam:

i quote from the Holy Qur'an:

"It may be that Allah will bring about love between you and those of them with whom you are now at enmity... Allah forbids you not respecting those who have not fought against you on account of your religion, and who have not driven you out from your homes, that you be kind to them and deal equitably with them; surely, Allah loves those who are equitable." - Holy Qur'an, 60:8-9

So the teachings of Islam are very clear. it teaches one to be at peace even with his enemy and to develope love instead of enimity. furthermore, those who are at peace with the Muslims and do not seek to hurt them Allah has specifically said to live at peace with people. It is only when people hurt you again and again that you can retaliate and even then it is as last resort ACCORDING TO QURAN.

It also says in the Quran,

"the taking of one innocent life is like taking all of Mankind... and the saving of one life is like saving all of Mankind" - Holy Qur'an, 5:33.

I hope these verses will put your mind to the right track of what islam teaches.I hope that explains to you what Islam says. There is nowhere it says that muslims should kill other people just because theyre not muslim. A huge bunch of lies for which those people will be punished on the day of judgement.

So please, I am sick of hearing people write about how much cruelty islam teaches. Read those two above quotes (there are many more teahcing love and peace)and you can see Islam is against this. So those people who write or mention thigns frm Quran saying Islam teaches to kill and pillage and rape are LIARS and twist things to ruin islam so obviously they are not muslims. Either they are paid to say these things or they themselves have something against peace so they lie about islam and bring it onto media to widespread more lies about islam so people dont see the true message of islam which is peace. By the way in case you didnt know, the word Islam itself means 'peace'. Muslim itself means 'submission to God' and 'Salaam alaikum' the greeting muslims say upon meeting other people means peace be upon you and the reply 'Wa-alaykum salaam' means and 'peace be upon you too'. The longer reply or greetng includes the words may peace be upon you and Gods blessings. I dont know where the hell people get these lies from when every single word in this religion teaches peace and love. Every little action teaches peace.

Anyway double standards exist in every religion as the Christian Crusades that specifically mentioned the 'killing of infidels (Muslims' and those who 'do not believe in Christ'. this was ordered by the then Pope Urban II.

also the Inquisition that was lead and sought the killing of Jews and Muslims at the hands of Christians, and was sanctioned under the church.

what about Communism? Stalin and his brutal dictorship that killed an estimated 30 Million people during his reign?

As a sane thinking person I am sure all religions teach peace and love because all holy books 'Bible, Torah and Quran' were sent by the same one God. Just because some people go out of their way to assuage their thirst and perversity for violence,killing and blood does not make me think all people of that religion think like that and that that is what that religion actually teaches. The only religion I have something against is Satanism but as a God loving, god fearing person Im sure anyone can understand why I have something for a so called religion which actually DOES teach hatred to God and all things peaceful and good.

I had to reply a little to those hateful things people say and write. I hope I wont be goaded into writing again. I am sick of trying to put people write when all they believe in the end is media and peoples lies anyway!

Bye bye for the last time hopefully
