Islam does not judge a believer on outer appearance!

Reader comment on item: [Beltway Snipers]: Converts to Violence?
in response to reader comment: mike tyson is not a real muslim

Submitted by Syed Rashid Ali Shah (Netherlands), Jul 9, 2010 at 19:09

Dear Sir,

Herewith I would like to seize this occasion to disagree with my other Muslim brother, who has passed his judgement on Mike Tyson, who embraced Islam in good faith. We have no right to criticize his outer appearance or life style. It is for Allah (God) to pass a judgement and to decide whether someone is a true Muslim or not. It goes without saying that he embraced Islam, while he was serving his prison sentence for rape conviction. Let us hope and pray that he would become a good practising Muslim like his hero Muhammad Ali 20 years ago. God bless you Mike Tyson and we welcome you as a follower of Islam to become a better person in the near future !

With kind regards,

(S.R.A. Shah) from The Netherlands
