Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by Arta (New Zealand), Sep 30, 2005 at 08:32

I just wondering and reading almost all the comments, what is this?
for people who doesn't have to believe will never understand about religion. and yet for the muslims who never read their Koran. I know most of Indonesian doesn't speak arabic, and yet they pray in arabic. I just wondering how they read their koran? and my muslim friend told me that once you read it wrongly then you have to close the koran and stop reading.
So how you muslims will understand Islam?

For Ranna Chaudry: I just want to tell you that you should know about the history about the Koran too, Islam was founded or Created by Muhamad around 600AD. and yet Muhamad were cannot read and write. do you read all the whole of your Koran?
I found some post on the internet about Koran (and its not very pleasing for muslim) it was said that traslated from Koran so maybe you want to check that out with your Koran (since I dont have any Koran, and I can't read Arabic)

also if you want to know some Question from Muslim here
http://www.learnthebible.org/q_a_what_is_the_real_islam.htm

Just one thing for sure that, all of muslim should read the source of Koran. That is Moses Law or the Bible (mostly Old Testament) and you will know the truth. I know most of you will say HARAM to touch the bible (as Kafir's book)

I don't suggest you to be a Christian. so don't misunderstand. a true christian is not religion. it is Faith. not base by community. I believe you will understand between true muslim and muslims (who are just saying).

For someone who tell here that so many people converted to muslims or muslim are the fastest growing religion. I just want to tell you : Don't be proud about that. Joining a community is very easy, especially if they offer with a simple way.
ie. Jihad is the shortcut to go to heaven, and you'll meet virgins and other thing you desire.

if that is heaven,what about the earth? you can find everything like that here on sinful earth. To be holy all you need just go to mekka. you spent money.. and walla.. you came back as Hajj. I just pity to poor Indonesian people who cannot afford to be holy. And for sure guarantee the one who can go to Meka are mostly rich because of Corruption.

I live in Muslim country, I know them, I grew up with them. and I never get a good impression from them. I know some is a good friend. but at the end they are doing the same thing. when the riot come. they'll just join the club.

Lose your pride. forget about who we are. focus on the truth. I'm sure most muslims were born in as Muslim, they don't have a choice. they never know other culture. other people, what they know is only about islam. that's why you cannot blame them to do something radical.

Some my friends went to Aceh after the tsunami, they went there for donate some food and help them to make a house, and yet they don't see any Arabs there. as most of Indonesian muslim believe that Aceh is as same as second mekka. And one day they gave something to the people and the hajj shouted to the people "Thanks for the donation from ARAB" and yet my friends weren't look like arab at all, they were americans, dutch, and some chinese and javanese.

They should be ashamed of themselves. open their eyes and see the reality. not to protect their pride. my friends were so laughing at that situation...

cheers.
