in response to reader comment: DONT DO IT!!!

Submitted by Bella (Saudi Arabia), Sep 4, 2010 at 03:33

i know a family of some alawis and they are so nice(i didn't say these line just because one of them is dear to me but its because i can see and sense their kindness as a people..they are criticize by most of muslims who doesn't understand the real meaning of islam,i had encounter a MOTTAWA here in saudi..i ask him several questions like the DO'S and DON'TS of muslim, also why muslims criticize any other religion like christianity and alawite. this is his line: a "real muslim doesn't criticize others, for its only GOD has the right to judge what he created, i respect other religion like christians and alawite and i never say they are not good religion.this must be understood by all of muslims too not only me."

IF alawite celebrate christian occations like CHRISTMAS and new year, i think there's nothing wrong about it! They just respect and love us like the way we love and respect them. In my country of origin, we are celebrating muslim holidays too like EID ED'L FEITR(correct me if its wrong spelling) and there's even a special non-working government holiday during RAMADAN in respect and in cooperation with our muslim brothers in our country.we christians, understand muslim but it seems most muslim brothers can't or doesn't want to understand us.( but im not saying ALL) i know there's no perfect human being but as much as possible we should avoid to hurt others

In my own point of view, we don't need to argue and say and do something bad towards religion of each other, what we need is LOVE AND RESPECT TO ONE ANOTHER BECAUSE THAT IS OUR GOD WANTS FROM US...there is no different GOD for each religion,and there is no 2 or 3 heaven, we just have our very own different way of praising him.we use different languages, have different beliefs but the only thing i know is; WE ONLY HAVE ONE GOD..I hope Love and respect will prevail in our hearts -_^) Thanks
