Misunderstanding!!!

Reader comment on item: Study the Koran?

Submitted by Mish (United Kingdom), Oct 30, 2005 at 21:01

I came across this site and after reading so many comments from the non-muslims i had to say something. No offence to anybody be it muslims or non-muslims.The meaning of Islam and its purpose is misunderstood by many. The understanding of the Qu'ran is misunderstood by many even muslims.

Regarding Islam, I am a muslim and very happy that i was born a muslim. My parents gave me everything, love, affection, toys, spoiling me with sweets..u name it i had it...Never did my parents ever teach me a sign of evil act by relating to Islam. My ustad(arabic teacher) taught me how to read the Qu'ran (Qu'ran is Arabic Language and Im Bangladeshi British), but never did he once convey a message of hate towards non-muslims.

When the Qu'ran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) it was revealed in arabic. It had no English translation, or any other language to translate it. However, Sahabas(Prophets companions) travelled around the world spreading and teaching..word by word. If any of you who are non-muslims or even muslims that can try to understand Arabic then you might understand its full message The Qu'ranic arabic language is precise and concise like no other language on the face of this earth not even my mother tongue.

Just the like Christian evil doers, KKK, IRA and even Hitler kill innocent people.
Tis fair to say that the Arabs are like butchers.

I can say one thing that I believe is that all though the modern day arabs say they know all about Islam and what it means I guarantee that 2/10 will not even be able to recite a verse without mistakes..

I live in england..I have non-muslim friends and muslim friends...there is no tension, no hate, we're like brothers..its not about having my back covered its about covering their backs..even if their not muslims.

Arrogance and hate causes war..I never blame the americans..feel sorry for their suffering and pain..feel sorry for their poor soldiers who get sent in death trap..

The only people I blame I is The american government. Throughout the whole of American history there has only been 2 great leaders/presidents. Other than that all the others were in it for glory and recognition and not to mention power..and greed

I'd advise non-muslims to read childrens books that talks about islam and work their way up to the Qu'ran then at least you have some knowledge and you will understand what it says..

JIHAD...the true meaning of the word jihad is not bloodshed..it means fighting ones enemy within ones-self..Basically..fight your demon that makes you a bad person..that is the truest form of jihad. when it concerns battel thats a different matter..It is stated in sahi muslim (hadith)

"The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) has been reported by Anas b. Malik to have said : Show leniency; do not be hard; give solace and do not create aversion"

Regarding women
again from sahi muslim
"It is narrated by Ibn 'Umar that a woman was found killed in one these battles; so the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) forbade the killing of women and children

I admit there are some middle eastern people who claim they are true muslims but use islam as a shield to protect from the outside world. They oppress women which is against Islam. They slaughter humans..against Islam.

Pakistan, Afganistan are the only two muslim countries countries in the world who are full of arrogance and hate, lies and betrayal, they sell their daughters for money to an 80yr old dirty man..Thats not Islam

I sincerely ask non-muslims to read upon literature by well known famous scholars..
Reading the Qu'ran in arabic is one thing but to fully understand what the Almighty is saying through the book is another thing...its impossible to fully understand unless read with open mind and or with another muslim who is intellect in arabic language

Sorry for any offence to anyone...
Hope I made some sense
