nothing about Islam

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: Why do people convert to Islam?

Submitted by Heso (Egypt), Jul 25, 2008 at 23:12

Well, the author obviously knows nothing about Islam, cause if he does know, he would not have said "it is open militance or (or at least anti-total-pacifism) or subjugation and inter-war?"

Not just cause some terrorists say they are killing here and there cause Islam said so, means that Islam really says so !! , what if these terrorists misunderstood the Koran, what if some evil men has the power to manipulate some young men's minds and direct them to do these terror things, i mean some Iraqi terrorist organizations are killing Iraqi civilians in explosions just like they are doing to American troops there, is there any religion says so ?, if Islam really says so, then why many people are converting to Islam ?.

The author in this article said that usually poor people are the ones who convert easily to Islam cause of its balancing between poor and rich people like zakah and the author is right, actually there are much more things other than zakah that balances between poor and rich, enough that to Islam, all races are equal, poor and rich are equal, everyone is equal, Islam only differ between a person and another person by the strength of his faith and being a good person to himself, people around him and to God.

So, how does a religion that is that kind to poor and frees people from running after matter like money, tells people at the same time to kill their civilians like what happens in Iraq !!! ( Iraqis killing Iraqis ) , I mean there is two probabilities here, even Islam is really contradicting itself, or someone wants you to believe so.

I am a Muslim, and i am telling you, someone wants you to believe Islam is a bad religion, but someone else will tell you, it is really contradicting itself.

Well, there is one way to figure which of those 2 probabilities is right, stop listening to anyone, just buy a copy of the Koran and read it yourself, then judge Islam, but make sure to buy the copy from an authorized seller, cause they've found some sellers selling fraud copies.

May be when you read the Koran, you will know why so many people are converting to Islam.
