Dear Sir,

Firstly, Islam was not founded by Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), it is a continuation what his predecessors advocated. All his predecessors i.e. Abraham (PBUH), Moses (PBUH), Jesus (PBUH), and other several prophets propagated 'Tawheed', and Mohammed (PBUH) too stood for this and advocated. What does differs him from his predecessors which is nothing but all his teachings are everlasting, not time bound, for which learn Qur'an and Islam without any prejudice and negative and bias thoughts.

In view of this, Islam does not require any re-juvenation or revamping process, it is not time-bound but eternal. All its teachings are befitting to mankind , now and the years ahead as does in the past.

Why I suggest reform among Muslims becasue a large number of Muslims have eluded from true perspective of Islam, I mean from Tawheed, and other uncivilized practices such as promiscuity, gambling, alchohol usage and superstitions are infested among them as well. Besides, handful misugided people with the mentality of terror which is also against Islamic faith and tenets. Islam was never in offensive position but defensive and did not harm aging people, women and children even during war with enemies.

Lastly, Muslims can only destroy Islam otherwise no any ideology or dogma can beat Islam. Outcry often expressed by readers against Islam and Muslims through this forum is very interesting for me though most of the comments are provocative and uncivilized, which in fact further drive me to be a strong and civilized Muslim - Al Hamdu Lillah (thank God)

May god bless you with hidhaya and good health to enable you to analize things carefully and sincerely without any prejudice thereby peace and happiness here and hereafter.
