I'm a believer

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Amal (United States), Aug 30, 2005 at 12:01

I believe in Allah and Mohamed( peace be apon him) his last massenger.
I'm a 15 years old and I never doubted my beliefs , I might think and ask myself why thing in my religion are that way but never doubted my religion, although Islam is facing all these Criticisms.

I'm not blinded by religion, I wasn't forced to believe in it. I chose Islam.
The evil isn't Islam; after all it's a religion of peace and Harmony.
The evil is the people who are committing crimes killing others.
Islam didn't say or allow forcing others in believing nor to kill and take an innocent life.

But islam did allow to defend your self and your country.
If someone come to your country not to live in peace, but came to take a way your freedom and killed the people who you loved wouldn't you do what ever you can to take what rightfully belongs to you?
