Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: Mosques (to preach... Islam)

Submitted by mohsen asaad (Saudi Arabia), Mar 16, 2006 at 14:48

To begin with, I'm a Muslim. I've read a lot of comments, which most of it were criticizing Islam as a religion, as well as Muslims.

Islam came to any person who searches for reality, whom is asking what is God? Do I have to believe in God? What is the aim of a riligion? How I can be a good beliveries there another life after death? Thousands of questions might come across any person's mind whom is looking for a real answer. Islam came as a choice to all people of different cultures, race&backgrounds to guide them to the real happiness in life and there after. Islam as a teaching came through prophet Mohamed, peace be upon him, he puts numerous principals, very simple not hard to execute, pry to our holy God the greatest and the only one God by many ways, such as, pray every day, believe in God as the creator of all the universe &all creatures., asking his mercy if we act bad against him or against any human, ask him to help us in all our needs, believe in all prophets that were sent by our great God, keep our soul transparent&clean,keep good harmony with all the people and with ourself,put peace as a target for humanity, do not cheat or lay ,help needy people in any ways even with a simple supportive word, respect your family, old people&teachers,do not be selfish, build your society in a positive way,devide your effort and attention between the materialistic needs and our soul needs as much as we can, do not hate but try to love as much as you can,open your heart to God to show you the write direction.......................

there is countless principles of Islam the way that I see it, though out my religious readings,thinking,teachers.
Terrorism is a bad example. Islam never support such act.9\11 made crime is not an Islamic act by all means.suicide bombs any were a criminal act. kidnaping is not our real Islam. Islam is peace; respect others even if they have different goals, cultures or attitudes. We have to live in one world, yes there is differences, but on the other hand there is a lot to share.

some critics write with negative attitude toward Islam or Muslims ,they just got a very shallow understanding of Islam. others,interpreted a terrible or bad examples of some Muslims as the case and principle of Islam teaching, for example the 9/11crime.there is a bad examples in all cultures and believers as well. But that does not represent the real Islam and its teaching as I know it in our holy book Koran. So in order to be wise and just try to know real Islam by searching for the truth. peace for all.
