Reader comment on item: The London Markaz
in response to reader comment: what is monotheism?

Submitted by syed bayezid (Bangladesh), Dec 13, 2008 at 02:48

with all due respect, monotheism is a belief system. people, the worshippers, can be termed as monotheists. montheism means belief in one god. god does not worship anything so he isnt monotheistic or polytheistic.

you speak of tolerance like you are so familiar with it. you should thank ALLAH. ill tell you why. there are some cultures that practise eating human flesh. you seem to be quite tolerant of different ways, would you accept this culture? in india they practiced sati, the ritual burning of the wife when her husband dies, which is still practiced in certain parts to date. would you still acept this way? in indonesia there is a small tribe known as the dayaks, who practice cutting peoples heads off as a ritual. you re tolerant, would you accept a dayak in your community today?

you dont know what tolerance means, it is a slippery word anarchists use today to get around established norms. ALLAH gave us rules that are good for all humans. i dont see why we shouldnt accept this and not discard our local cultures. if the aras did not practise monotheistim then they would still be urying their daughters alive ike their agan ancestors did.

get with the program. in case you need more examples, just give me a buzz.

dont lose your temper. but your temper shows me you dont have anything solid to prove your case.
