The title should be - CAN MUSLIMS BE REFORMED? -

ISLAM as a religion is very clear to all - it is a just, peaceful religion, giving equal opportunities to both men and women alike.

Tyrany, oppression, aggression, colonization of many non-Arab and non-Muslim people influenced the thoughts of Muslims and diverted them from the True Path over the centuries, it is not possible to unwind these thought in one night.

Muslims are experiencing what Christians experienced in the Medieval Europe, they were corrupt, illiterate, the solution for any problem between them was fight and fight, the church controlled everything, and forging the teachings of Jesus and other prophets

ISLAM is the Holy Quran - the Holy Quran is the word of God - ALLAH - cannot be changed at all. so be assured that this book will never be changed.

Hadith traditions were filtered and filtered many times until it reached us in the best form

Ulama diligence is always changing depending on the times, events, and with more knowledge of human nature and Earthly events acquired but the first concentration must be to God's words in the Holy Quran.

Muslims are now following the west and the Christians in every way of life as prophecised by prophet Muhammad. they became materialistic, they do not study their religion, infact they became distant from it and behave exactly as the Infidel west do.

The way Muslims will be reformed is by shocks as we are experiencing today all over the area, I have noticed people more and more are coming back to religion, I noticed more Muslims are praying in the Mosques especially the Dawn Prayer.

this trend was not sudden, it happened gradually over time (around 40 years or so), the more time passes the more Muslims will adhere to their scriptures and laws, until the time when they can control their own destiny and when Muslims become more independent from the west grip. then Muslims will change, once they understand better their religion by reading more and understanding more.

today's Muslim laws are rigid especially in Saudia, due to ignorance, illiteracy and other rigid social ethics, these social ethics are not of Islam but accumulated social behavior over long time which is far from Islam.

I still have to say what you say about positive signs in saudia, Iran, Turkey, I consider them negative signs of the rulers going away from Islam, exactly like the west gradually are going down and to indecency more and more allowing homosexuality into society instead of banning them from spreading their cancerous behaviors and thoughts poisoning the minds of the people.

The west is going down and pulling with them the Muslims who are dragged to make new freak rules strange to Islam, but this will be for a short time, until the Muslims understand their religion better and understand that the Islamic Sharia is just and giving equal opportunities to men and women alike.

Islamic Sharia once understood, the west would grip to it with their teeth, infact many Islamic sharia laws are being implement in many western courts today.

the bottom line is that , it is not ISLAM that need to be reformed, it is the Muslims

P.S. All Muslims should be Islamists - that is adhering to the laws of Islam
