"It is true thou wilt not be able to guide every one whom thou lovest; but Allah guides those whom He will and He knows best those who receive guidance. " Quran 28:56

"It is not required of thee (O Messenger), to set them on the right path, but Allah sets on the right path whom He pleaseth. Whatever of good ye give benefits your own souls, and ye shall only do so seeking the "Face" of Allah. Whatever good ye give, shall be rendered back to you, and ye shall not be dealt with unjustly." Quran 2:272

"Thank Allah I have seen Islam before i see muslims.." said by a westerner who converted to Islam.

Even the messenger of Allah couldn't guide his own uncle to Islam ... So what I am saying I don't want to turn this case about if Islam is true or not .. These are my last words I write to you about my religion..

Noone is perfect neither muslims nor anyone else .. And peoples always unfair Islam while it's so clear for everyone... The muslims in the western countries and not all of them once they get out of their countries and go out there all they care about is their own life and they might see the news and all they do is to ask god to help the victims of these insane wars .. That's not their Islam telling them to support a muslim ruler to do whatever he do..

And yes the rulers of arab countries are muslims ... Does this mean that Islam is the responsible for everything wrong in this world ? so it's very wrong religion we should ban it .. It's dangerous for our world...

well Islam can't take responsiblity for that ... I cry for every muslim who pollute the Islam reputation without his awarness .. We would never become like that if we have our concepts of Islam.. Do you know how the real muslim should be?.. The real muslim shouldn't be a sinner or ensure lies or kill or become proud or do anything that is against his belief ... So are what you see real muslims??

Hamas and Hezbollah, Al Quds brigade etc ... They don't concern me about my religion in anything.. These organization are like governments doing what they think is right in a political thinking .. They have enemies and their main purpose is to destroy their enemies no matter what.... So whenever they go against some common enemy with the peoples in their countries ,they get their support and not because they are all terrorists.... The occuping forces in any country are the great enemy for it's peoples ... You living in the west and haven't passed through this experience won't make it more clear for you... But all we see in the countries occupied is destruction...

When we experience a terrorist attack from some of these organizations... why don't we think of it as a political solution they thought it's the best for the situation?.. They use the religion of Allah as their cover to their crimes... And what about what Israel and the killing they have done in Gaza Strip? ... Why we say they do that as a defense for their countries?? and we don't say that their religion is responsible??

Well I know the answer for that quesion.. You would say that the Quran has a lot of verses urging us to fight those who don't believe in Allah.... And you get the wrong Idea about Jihad... We are told to conquer countries and not destroying them but to spread Islam and we are not told to kill any civilians or unarmed or cut a tree or destroy a building .. Just pure fight in case of conquering another country (Muslims have always been fought by non-muslims and that's why conquering is found in the Quran)....That's not the only kind of Jihad .. Jihad is also to invite other peoples to conert to Islam (and not to force them to).....In fact Jihad has alot more to discuss but I won't go into it any further since you won't get anything about it...

I am not perfect muslim too so when I say that what I wrote was a reflection of every muslim living in the middle east , I mean that the majority of us think this way.... And Islam will stand still till the day of judgement and at this day we all are goin to know where is the truth and what religion is true...

"Doesn't the Koran recommend death or similar for making that move?"

Yes koran recomend death for apostates who left Islam and embrace any other religion then become muslims again and then apostatize again from Islam.. These are the rules of our god ..Shall we argue god in that???

And in fact there is no superstition of im going to hell if I opened my mind and that's why we have in our Islamic studies a branch for religions comparing and not only Christianity and Judaism.....

That's our test in the life to hold the right belief and never abandon it ... The truth would reveal at the end and whever followed the right path is a winner.... May Allah show us all the right path
