repentance and forgiveness

Reader comment on item: Still Asleep After Mumbai
in response to reader comment: Keith Williams: Mumbai was the result of Koran 60:4. Pakistani schools teach hatred of Hindus which this verse orders.

Hi,

I think you mis interpreted this one.

>>

>>Islam does away with all that came before it my friend. <<

Never were truer words spoken about Islam. Islam wipes clean or attempts to, everything before Islam. That is why Pakistanis think nothing of disowning their heritage before Islam. <<

It means that all the sins that you did before you came to Islam are forgiven and that you will not do those sins again. You are starting out new.
