Not good enough.

in response to reader comment: Deeds will decide Hell or Heavens

Sorry, but It doesn't suffice for me.

As I'm alive and not near dead or planning to die in the near future, and care about my children. It's the world I live in that is also of importance to me.

As I once heard from a Catholic priest. "We aren't trying to keep people happy with a promise of heaven in the next life only, we are trying to create a bit of paradise in this world as well."

Can you show me the same? Not 72 houris or something similar in the next... but the effort from followers of Islam to fight injustice against humanity here?

As you must understand, I'm not talking about injusice towards Allah, nor it's profets, nor the remains of there words written on paper. But the human injustice commited by terrorists regarding what faith they claim to be. Crimes of all sorts. What ways do Islam bring to create heaven on earth for there own faithfull women?

Blowing people up who's only fault is to be standing at a market, is that a way to defend a country against others? I wonder but, I suppose all suicide terrorists are just mostly out for revenge... Not really to defend there faith and Allah who they believe in will confront them with it and send them to their prescribed fire... Still knowing they will burn doesn't revive the killed, doesn't heal the wounded.

I'm seeking a way to prevent further pain of these sorts. Do you know a way? And please don't shove it all to the west. Shuni's and shiis are good enough to kill each other as well.

Regards,

Submitting....
