Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)
in response to reader comment: Moderate muslims

Submitted by ahmad zafire (United States), Mar 21, 2006 at 22:21

to answer your question about the hadith.

most muslims follow the hadith but not in full. because the hadith are from word of mouth on the life of the prophet. its not the direct word of G-d like the koran or the ten commandments. see islam is going through a change that every religion that went before it. modernizing.....as a arab imam said to me during friday prayer service.. is that our brother and sister in the east are so stressed out about polictics and wars. which the koran is also based on.

they are not following the direct teachings of the koran. you see the faith is not in question. people of the muslim faith have the strongest faith with no fear of death because we believe in the true word of G-d. but literacy is the factor....the literacy rate in the east is very very low at 58% that is terrible. and even though the birth rate is the second highest. it is falling faster then any birth rate then any other culture. see, lots of muslim in arab countries can,t read or write. so they lesson to these high priest and take their word. to commit sucide bombings. main thing is....if suicide bombing was going to get u closer to G-d then why dont they do it themselves?

that's just me and every level headed muslim out there. i think if there going to be any hope for my brothers and sisters in the east. they need to understand that muslim in the west are not their enemies but we are in an enviorment where all culture live and respect other religions. but we most start off one step at a time. GET EDUCATION!!! IF U LIKE I CAN SHOW U ARTICLE ON THIS SUBJECT
Submitting....
