Islam as a way of life

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

Submitted by Dr Bano (Malaysia), Dec 1, 2005 at 18:48

Islam is one of the religions of the masses and a follower of the religion always prophesises that "There is no other God other than Allah swt." The followers are called Muslims, who are categorised into two types: biology and practicality.The former becomes Muslim because he is born in a Muslim hereditory but he does not practise the Islamic teachings. This particular group of Muslims can be found in some parts of Europe where it were once under the Islamic Rulers of the Otthoman Empire. Some of them are found in Spain, Bosnia etc. Conversly, some Muslims were not born in Muslim families but they converted and were totally subservienced to the teachings of Islam.

Islam transcended from the teachings of the previous prophets of Noah, David, Moses and Jesus who preached to the God. In fact, a Christian of the Old Testament could marry a Muslim without any restrictions. As any other religion, Islam always preaches for the betterment of mankind. The followers are enshrined to strictly follow the holy book, Quran, and the life and custom of Beloved Prophet Mohammad pbuh, Sunnah. A normal Muslim must learn and pratise the Ussuluddin (belief), Fiqh (Rules and Procedures), Tasauf (Psychology). Mohammad once said, "As long as you obey Allah, Prophets and his Sunnah, you will never go astray."

With that, a Muslim never never play God by labelling others as infidels, never terrorise other religious followers and they will always be a role model to religious followers. I have been a Muslim al my life and I never feel that my faith in Allah will transform me to become a terrorist.
