Reply to Shahriar Islam was not spread

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Ahmed (Canada), Jul 29, 2009 at 17:35

As an arabian muslim I say to shahriar your enlightment gives me hope for islam.

You see I dont deny that a HUGE chunks of muslims out there are repulsive, and offencive and are easily detestable, they are intolerant full of bigotry and other stuff, However!!!

I believe that the number one reason is that just like christians or jews or humans where in the old times, we are suffering from sever retardation and dominance by evil acts of different politics and such, I mean think of us as barbaric and need to evolve, but that has nothing to do with islam, it only justifies why so many muslims are that way.

And completley agree with shahriar as well as many many muslims who truly seek answers and to be enlightened spiritualy (unlike most of the people who are just obsessed by ritualistic superficial statements of superiority about who is muslim and who is not), that are appauled by what some muslims do, and feel anger and frustration when they see bin ladins photo.

The problem with both extremists and fudnamelists, is that they refuse to see Qur'an and religion as something that is ever needing of exploration and that it is not some sort of a rule book, it is full of stories and morals, that needs exploration self reflection and living in order to truly understand, and each day you understand something different by it. It doesn't mean sheikhs/imams should stand out there and scream Kafir/Mulhid/Crazy. If you think muslims themselves dont know how brain washed muslims at the moment are, you are mistaken, Alot do and those who dont just dont care enough to do (they aren't that bothered to get insightfull it is easier not to).

The only reason I am posting is to give people an idea that people like shahriar, myself come of different aspects of the islam in different countries, and just so you know I am an arab my self. I am not condemning anyone for calling muslims what you call them, because muslims unlike other criminals make there acts as if they are divinely backed up and that this is what Allah wants, it is..., I believe that God will punish people that used islam in such vile ways, not only againist non muslims but amongst muslims themselves (sunni/shiaa anyone??).

Final word on the Qur'an, this book is a very mystical book, and it needs to be read alot and all of it, and through time, God did not make us so that we dont sin, infact he made us so that we would prove to satan that when we do sin we know that God would redeem us. It is not like life is soo simple with religion as well, so it is only right that God's commandments would not be so.

And please do understand when you see some muslims sounding ignorant and vile and aggressive in there discussions, and obviously discriminative and non compassionate, that they are indeed quiet alot, but they are not Islam they just choose an easy mind soothing way of practicing it. (I know it sounds repetitive, but I thought maybe an Arab talking would do something different :P)
