Reader comment on item: Keith Ellison, Where Are You?
in response to reader comment: question for "Imam Ahmed Muhammed"

Submitted by ahmad Muhammed (United States), Mar 18, 2011 at 02:21

To answer your question, no I haven't. I've when I first converted (reverted) to Islam I there some things I did have questions about. Like why is the Qur'an structred the way it is, where it starts speaking about a particular subject in one place then starts to speak about another person a little later. Also there were some questions about specific doctrines, like is music forbidden, or why do we have to pray in a particular fashion. But nothing I could honestly term as a short coming with Islam. This Dhimmi no more character seems to enjoy tearing down people's faith. I'm not a fluent arabic speaker, I admit that, but I am learning Arabic, so that I can better understand the Qur'an. I'm no scholar, but what I do know about my deen I thank Allah for that, and continually ask for is guidance. Now when I see shortcomings in the way a particular group of Muslims practice Islam say I don't agree with the way Malaaki's pray, for example, then I seek guidance from the Qur'an and Sunnah, and ask questions from scholars, and students of knowledge.
