Hello Mohammed: We are both very honest and peaceful people. I too pray everyday, for guidance, knowledge, compassion, and understanding, to become a better person. My goal is to also help the underprivileged, to which I donate all I can afford. There is a cause greater than ourselves that we can contribute to.

My husband and I are very conservative and we are not big spenders. Our home, cars, everything we own is paid for, and we will have a good and stable retirement. We are common down to earth people, and own alot of land, which we grow vegetables, fruits, and flowers. There is also a multitude of wildlife, birds, ponds, and picturesque beauty. We are also very appreciative of what God has given us. I have read some troubling things about the Quran, and maybe you could correct them or explain if they are wrong.

A friend of mine showed me scripture from the Quran, It was (Surah 6:39, 12:6; 32:13; 43:36-37) It basically said the Quran tells us that the God of Islam works with Satan and demons to lead people astray in order to populate the hell he created. It also said that Allah told Muhammed to kill and maim anyone who did not believe in Allah or in Muhammed his prophet. I know this is offensive, and I apologize up front, can you disrepute what this says or maybe the quotes are wrong. But my friend Jamal was very insistent on the meaning, and he said it frightened him, because he is also very peaceful. He was trying to talk to others about the scriptures.

Maybe you could shed some expertise on this....We cannot change perceptions unless we are able to fully confront the problems. Thank you also for your patience.....

Debbie
