Reader comment on item: Christianity Dying in Its Birthplace
in response to reader comment: Going against quran and sunna , Response to Shazia

All these comments quoted on this website on Quran and Sunnah are not by any learned scholars, muslim or otherwise. these are the people who have forsaked their religion based on the treatment of other individuals in their lives.

As for the Ayahs from the Quran, just like the Bible and Torah it was revelation from God or Allah and unless u are well versed in Arabic and its history you cannot really interpret these verses. Whatever we are reading is an interpretation of an individual based on their life experiences. A lot of the practices are taken from the culture rather than the religion itself. Islam gives protection to women, a lot of cultures don't. Inhuman treatment of an individual is based on culture not on religion.

The Advice given to Prophet Muhammed in the Quran in certain verses is not the whole and soul representation of the Quran. It is usually linkedto other Ayahs and can be understood in reference to history, time of revelation and teachings of Muhammed. Just by misquoting you can bash Islam all you want. One thing sure standa and that is inspite of all this negative propaganda those who are destined to be guide by Allah, will be guide no matter what nad those who are destined to go astry will go astray. In the Bible also infidels are supposed to be punished. You can change it any way you like, basically the religion of God remains the same. Each individual has a right to his life and happiness and no one has a right to take another's life.

Remember the last Day of Jugement before you act.
