Good day everyone!

I like many others in this world am a Muslim and a religious man. Like many of other people out there too,i have observed and wondered about the various religion until i furthered my studies in religion of many sorts from islam, to christianity, to rastafarinaism and many others.

the truth behind the wording of our holy book, not only has it been a guide to many well wishers and doers in life, but also a truth that has not been manipulated like many other Holy Books. Additionally, Islam has nt refused any other religion or religious figures, its agreement and respect to many other has developed admiration from many of the public considering its belief in all other profits that came to spread the word of God.

However, in various european countries where the church once ruled powerfully enough to create massacares and hatred amongst people has created a large state of athiesism and anarchism, which historically threatened greater parts of europe once upon a time.

man has become to self involved to a point of error where relgion and all rules that apply to life simple are not worth looking into! i find it strange how people have no problem abiding by rules and regulation of a terrible boss and life with their limited options and disrespect earned however, refuse to adhere to the rules of life put across to each indiviual as an appreciation for the creator.

i am born in africa, and have arabic blood with friends from all walks of life and religion. the majority of my friendsm feel the strength of islam alot more in foreign countries than felt in thiers!! dunno they reason why!! additionally, in africa, west africa that is, there is a big movements in islam, then again there is another with christianity as well!! however, the majority of the west african i have met, get invlove with the church to a limit, however, always have their main belief in their african relgions and many Gods.

i dont see why a religion should be adaptable in any manner and loose its original meanings and texts to suits the carelss modern man who is plays anarchy to suit his lifestyle.

finally my query to many!! the previous generation of religion has brought forward these current days to us in a manner some would describe as great others would describe as normal. i wonder, what will the current generation be able to provide for the next one! lately where anarchy and athiesim is also on the increace, equivocally crime, inflation, hatred and diseases!! i wonder what will happen to our next of kins of this world?

Islam, unlike many other relgions has its good people and bad people!! sadly its the bad ones that promote the violence and the picture is painted in this manner! nevertheless, we must admit, the freedom speech from many others has become abusive to the majority. however, the majority, entangled in their own rat race and troubles in life cant be bothered to actually fight for more!!
