in response to reader comment: Awakening Muslim for what and why ? ?

Submitted by bHANWAR LAL pAREEK (United Arab Emirates), Aug 23, 2009 at 23:08

dear haji saheb,

its really confusing to most of the people in every community.for example I take my self,most of the hindus are saying that Lord shiva is their god but it is not true if he is the god then why we say him MAHADEV.and most of their picture are shown with a TASBEEH.then to whom this lord is praying if he is god.the truth is that lord shiva also believe in a god to whom he is offering his prayers in most of his pictures.and that is we can say Allah in Arabic,KHUDA in Persian,God in English and PRAMATMA in HIndi.

now one thing more,Quran is sent by allah for all of the world and not only for the muslims.in quran it is said RAB AL ALMEEN not RAB AL MUSLIMIN. allah wanted all of us to live in peace and prosperity. he wanted us to be honest for each other to be caring for each other.A muslim should be set an examplery charecter to rest of the world.A muslim should never suppose to hurt others in the name of Allah or Islam.

carry on haji saheb.may Allah give you a good patience to bear any criticism.take care.
