Your perspective is very maligned

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Mansoor: Understanding the most "misunderstood" religion

Nice to know that you have read Quran and Ahadees, but unfortunately with extremely negative perspective.

For Muslims, this world is just like a movie which will end up any moment. Our family, our surroundings and all the people around us are actually not there but made to look us as existing. May be you have seen the movie "Matrix". The reality is life after death. When Allah has destroyed people of certain city or area (on extreme violation of commandments) which you are calling innocent then Allah has better reward for those who did not commit any sin. You are only seeing the matter with an eye closed which cannot see the eternal rewards.

You quoted several Hadees and excerpts from History ( I am not sure that if it is valid or not). For your very kind information the slave trade and practices were common at that period of time and was never objected. I can show you 100s of references confirming the slave trade was legally protected by many other nations who are proud to call themselves the most cultured. Don't go very far, can you justify the history of Black Americans who were forcefully caught and transported like sheep herd to American Continent. The treatment and miseries brought to their lives cannot be compared to what you point out in Islam.

It is very easy to forget your own history which is filled with extremely black pages. You are denying it very bravely. You cannot point out any case of misbehaving and brutality during the era of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). I know people are highly misunderstood about the matter of Prophet's marriages and specially the disinformation regarding the age of Hazrat Ayesha Siddiqa (R.T.A).
