To Lisa and John and all the active opposing (of Islam) participants

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by AMK (India), Nov 30, 2005 at 08:52

I am a practising Muslim, a Muslim by birth, I consider myself lucky to be born a Muslim.

I consider all you opponents of Islam on this discussion forum lucky too; lucky because you have this opportunity to understand Islam, to understand the message. Whether you accept or not, (now or sometime later in your lives) only Allah knows best. May be you are the ones who's hearts are sealed, who are blind and deaf; then again may be you are the lucky ones!

Coming back to my original point; I am a Muslim, a devout Muslim. I do not want to kill anyone, I do not want to fight anyone, I DO want to argue with Kafirs in the most pleasant ways. I have friends who are Hindus, Jews, Christians, Parsis, I don't want to hurt any of them nor do I want anyone to hurt them.

I feel pain when I see my Muslim brothers and sisters around being oppressed, but I don't want to kill anyone for that.

If you enter my house, throw me out of it, hurt me or my family; I will fight, I will fight for my rights, I will fight for the rights of my family. And in this fight if you ultimately give up, I will treat you with Mercy & Compassion. If you tried to capture my house out of desperation since you did not have a home to call your own I may give you shelter, I may try to find a suitable place for you to take Shelter.

This is Islam, this has always been Islam & this will always be Islam.

All you opponents of Islam, your illogical (out of context, misunderstood) repetitions of the same verses do not convince me, and I'm sure they do not convince all the readers who read and understand with an open heart.

Which Muslim army invaded Indonesia (the most populous Muslim Nation), which army invaded Malaysia, why is India a majority Hindu country (80% or so) in spite of being ruled by Muslims for hundreds of years, what happened to the Muslims of Spain, which war was fought and won by the Muslims in the last 50-100 years that led to Islam being the fastest growing religion, which war did the USA lose that has made Islam the fastest growing religion in the USA??? Says a lot about Islam being spread by the sword doesn't it?

I am no researcher nor a Scholar; but I have a logical mind.... I sure you all do too!

Read Islam, understand Islam, ponder over Islamic teachings; all with an open mind, heart and without prejudice. Pray to Allah, my Lord and your Lord to be saved from the Fire.
