in response to reader comment: Islam and mind control

Don't judge a religion or anything unless you know the full story and see things from the perspective of others. The mentality here is so wrong and so far from the truth it's shocking Muslims pray 5 times a day because it brings us happiness and true fulfillment of the soul It unites us with our creator and 5 times a day really is nothing compared to the blessings we are all bestowed with. As I am sure you know the world we live in today, isn't fair nor just and corruption is of the norm People are more depressed,stressed and live unfulfilling lives rather than the way it should be Do you really believe that's all there is to life? That at the end of the day both those who do good and wrong will die without being punished or rewarded?? Does it make sense that there is no purpose to our existence?? If that were so then what difference would we have from the nature around us other than the fact that we are at the top of the food chain?? Muslims live to ensure not a spot in this corrupted world, but to save up for the life after death, our worship and good deeds are our "money" to buy our forever. When one believes in this then do you really think it matters if we spend 5 extra minutes praying instead of reading a book? Here's the thing we can do both. Each prayer takes about 5 minutes, so basically that adds up to less than half an hour a day Still think 5 minute breaks a few times a day is such a laborious and torturous feat?? And we pray because by doing so we gain Allah's love You have to understand that we aren't forced to do anything, how easy is it to skip a prayer?? Allah is not in need of our worship but we pray because we are in NEED of his mercy and blessings When we pray, we pray to Allah not the prophet sal Allah wa Aalayhi wasalam We say that out of respect and love for Allah's messenger and it's just like how one addresses royalty with "his highness" and other such titles to those of high rank Our prophet Sal Allah wa Aalayhi wasalam dedicated his life for this mission just so that the rest of us may be guided and upon learning about all the hardships and sacrifices that were made, it would be inhumane to disrespect him in any form. Also I hope that in future you will show more respect to Allah and our prophet and I pray that you will be among the guided ones We pray for the nonmuslims so that they may be guided and at least care enough to see and learn what Islam is before ridiculing, judging and dismissing it
