Hello Everyone

Peace be unto you.

Everyone is free to believe, imagine and perceive whatever sh/e likes. BUT do not superimpose any personal perception on Islam. Not all that Muslims do / did is Islamic. Certainly "Our Islam" can be anything, but Islam is the Islam of the holey Qur'an. Read it from there only. Read it in context. If you like it, fine. If not, leave it without messing about it.

Out of scores, here is just one instance in this context (from the Holy Qu'ran):

026.161 Behold, their brother Lut said to them: "Will ye not fear (God)?

026.162 "I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust.

026.163 "So fear God and obey me.

026.164 "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from the lord of the

Worlds.

026.165 "Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males,

026.166 "And leave those whom God has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye

are a people transgressing (all limits)!"

026.167 They said: "If thou desist not, O Lut! thou wilt assuredly be cast out!"

026.168 He said: "I do detest your doings."

026.169 "O my Lord! deliver me and my family from such things as they do!"

026.170 So We delivered him and his family,- all

026.171 Except an old woman who lingered behind.

026.172 But the rest We destroyed utterly.

026.173 We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower

on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!

026.174 Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.

026.175 And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might Most Merciful.
