Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Khalil Abdulrahman (United States), Jun 1, 2008 at 08:42

It is obvious from all of the controversy in the media regarding Obama and his "Pastor" that he is by choice a "Christian" and has associated himself with the "Christian" community for over 20 years.

According to the teachings of Islam, ALL are born Muslim and it is only through the influence of parents, guardians, friends and environment that we stray away from Islam.

So, according to this, all who do not practice Islam would be guilty of "shirk" or unbelief in some form or another and would be classified as "murtadd" (apostate) but even more so "shirk" or setting up partners with Allah or (polytheism) .which according to Surah 4:48 in the Quran is an unforgiveable sin.

Obama is, at the very least, munafiqeen (a hypocrite) and a man who cannot be trusted to make decisions on any level much less that of the "Commander -in- Chief".

Allah knows best, we are not the judge.
