How can Islam be modernized?
Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
Submitted by Muhammad Shakeel Faiz (Pakistan), Dec 21, 2005 at 06:41Islam will find its own ways out.
Quran cannot be deviated.
Slavery is not forbidden but highly disgusted.
So instead of forcing muslims to make slavery forbidden forever (which is not possible, we will never deviate from Quran), promote Quran's verses that disgust slavery and encourages muslims to free the slaves.
I hope those who are wise can understand my point?
So I request non-muslim fellows, instead of forcing muslims to alienate from Quran, tell them Quran.
As a good muslim, I feel disgusted with slavery but I will not forbid it totally, because Quran allows it in some cases.
So whatever Quran, says, I am bound to follow. I love Allah more than everything else.
Allah is my first priority.
Even the Jesus said, The greatest of all commandment is that Thou shall love God more than everything else.
So I can never think about changing the Quran for non-Muslims aspirations.
I hope you might understand muslims.
