Reader comment on item: Hamza Yusuf Fails My "Test"
in response to reader comment: Hamza

Submitted by Subriah (Australia), Oct 27, 2006 at 21:50

Alas, somebody has seen the light. Of Course Shaykh Hamza Yusuf is not an extremist!

I really feel that Muslims are being targeted by the world as a topic of popular cyber hate.... Well I feel that we simply must observe the actual roots of the religion before stereo-typing it. Yes. This means erasing any previous ideology, thought about the religion. Islam is a religion of peace and submission to the Lord who created this universe. Did you snort out loud? Peace? While they go around killing people for no good cause and slaughter children and commit other heinous crimes? Yes that would redefine the meaning of peace we all were familiar with. Actually no. Islam does not preach such horrific sins.

In fact the Prophet Mohammed said "Whoever has killed one innocent person without just cause it is as if they have killed all of humanity". That signifies the crime of taking an innocent life.

Most Muslims condemn what is being done in their name, for it is the abuse of religion in non-religious people which is damaging the religion of Islam.

How can people think that taking another soul of someone God has created is a righteous deed? It is horrendous and I can not stand this injustice and I feel for the Jew, innocent Jews who died at the horrific holocaust. I feel for the innocent Iraq children who died due to the invasion of Iraq. I feel for the loss of innocence because of hideous misinterpretations of Islam.

And I want to say Sorry to every Danish person whose flag was stepped on and was spitted at by a Muslim. Because that's wrong. There's even a worse in the Quran which commands us not to destroy the idols or other religious or important symbols.

I am sorry if any Muslim did anything wrong to you. I am sorry and God is with you because God is always with the oppressed despite his faith. God is always with the oppressed.

I would just like to condemn what is being done to Islam's name. I am a Muslim and I honestly cry when innocent Jewish, Christian and Muslim children die. And I cry harder to see that some idiots out there think they are doing this for God. Because God is great and he does not take pleasure in seeing his servants kill one another for no just cause.

I feel that Islam is a religion which has been destroyed. And I really think the three Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are beautiful religions and can co-exist.

I apologize for anything any Muslim has done to you which has made you think ill of my religion. And if anyone has been hurt unjustly my religion is against it no matter what anyone says.

Violence is not sanctioned from my faith by any reading or teaching and it indeed is a modern innovation which promotes enmity toward others.

I ask of you all not to let politics to teach you how to treat people; not to let violence represent an entire race, religion but to be open-minded.

Use your intellect it is not too late to take back what you said or thought but it is time we left our old ways and embraced the truth.

Islam is a beautiful religion. I feel that it is being exploited by irresponsible and unintelligent persons.

I am fourteen years old, I live in Australia and I really wish to tell all Muslims and Non-Muslims alike this. I feel bad that any Muslim may have said anything bad to the Danish people, because I know they are a lovely bunch but what they said about my lovely prophet (p.b.u.h) really hurt me; but I know that it was not my prophet it was a misconception and a portrayal of whom they (editorial of newspaper/cartoonists) thought of my prophet. They say Prophet Mohammed (p.b.u.h) was "insolent pedophile" however he married Aisha (p.b.u.h) who was nine out of love and she had the choice. It is Haram (absolutely prohibited) for the man to get married to more than one wife if his wife does not agree, and it is haram to force one to embrace Islam, to kill innocent beings, to force one into marriage, to hurt another emotionally or physically or to do anything that atrocious which is being done in Islam's name.
