the most common question of every non-muslim to a muslim is usually that 'why does islam degrade women?',or 'why are muslims terrorists??" and most of the muslims dont know how to reply.........well...here's a reply islam does NOT degrade women,yes they dont. you guys have a problem stating about why it is compulsary for us to cover our body,hair etc. well look into your own churches where the nuns have to cover their body n heads like the muslims,even when u see the picture of mother Mary you see that she too is covered modestly,,then what is the difference about? you do the same thing like we do but if the nuns do it then it is called 'religious' but when muslim women do it then they say 'islam degrades women' i ASK you "how can you say that soo easily??. please think carefully about what you say"

the second problem is about JIHAD ......most of the muslims do not know what to say.......well here is an answer......jihad means 'to strive or struggle' in arabic jihad means hard work or so.first of all- i wanna say something about this.......when in africa there was a war between the whites and blacks,everyone knows that the white people discriminated the blacks then the white people called the blacks as 'TERRORISTS'....the same thing happened in india n america,,,,,,for the british the americans were terrorists but for their people they were known as freedom fighters,,,look now the same action but 2 different labels!!!!! but what we can say from this is "where there will be discrimination there WILL be TERRORISM" look,nobody will go on the battle field without any reason and die ,there HAS to be a reason behind it .........................."think carefully before listening to the media"...............

third thing is about why we strictly pray five times a day and fast the whole month in ramadan......they usually say to children that "your soo young,what is the need for you to fast / or pray???"..............the answer is ....you say that you respect your mother.....whatever she saya you do or have to do,,she is caring,loving and wants your best.....when she tells you to do something, do you ever say "NO mother let me grow up then i will listen to you"....well no you don't then how can you say GOD who created your mother such a rubbish!! your mom wants the best for you,so even god would want the best for you........."god dis not devil,he did not give these rules just to see you in pain but to strenthen your faith..when you love god so much you are espected to prove it"

if you see history the arab nation has been unknown for centuries,it has been unknown for centuries until the day MUHAMMED may peace be upon him was born...god showed mercy on the arabs and raised them in their level....god gave arabia oil,dates,pearls,petrol,and made Mecca and Medina great places for worship......now everyone is seeing how the gulf has risen high.............and now if you read the statics you find that the fastest growing religion is ISLAM and two-third of them accepting are women..............."think people think!" and please don't listen the media before thinking.................

THANK YOU......i hope your way to Islam would become easier...........
