Hamza is not Islam

in response to reader comment: Read this.

The fact that whenever some one is spotted as muslim , every body starts to look for faults to prove he will actually fails whatever test they invent in order to arrive into one rather very branded thought circiulating over since the 9/11 fallacy, which is Islam is the religion of extremism. Will , Hamzah , or any other person, is not actually Islam by the fact that Islam is not individuals , or countries or even area . Islam is the way of life people choose to follow inorder to reach the other life promised .

Now, whether this ( way) is approved or not approved by others does not have to do with how Hamzah or any other muslim is trying to represnets , So , what i want to say is ,though i believe strongly that Hamzah yusuf is actually an intellect that happened to be a very loyal muslim , Islam is beyond people , but people practice islam in different ways . those who wants to understand islam should try to understand the spirit and meaning of the way of life it represnt in a holistic view . Only then , we will stop testing others on our own standards , that are actually made to only fail others to prove our myths are true .
