Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Nuray (Portugal), Dec 7, 2005 at 17:05

I read and reply comments on this website for more than three months. I didn't see anybody, except me, who works for peace among Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Unbelievable. If someone supports and defends her/his religion I can understand that but how about aggression, hatred, anger? Aren't we at 21 st century, known as age of tolerance or age of knowledge?

People ask me unimportant details (at least, that is so for Muslims), like marriage of Muhammed, peace upon him. Almost everyday. Nobody asks me anything about the similarity between Islam and Christianity, or any other religions. I posted the the good reasons why Muslims don't attack person of Jesus, I got no comments. Nobody appreciated this fact but still ask me to explain minor details.

What kind of joy do you have if you hear a story of an ex-Muslim, ex-Christians, ex-Jewish? If someone become Muslim I don't feel myself more close to Islam. Only my good deeds can make me a good believer, nothing else? Even if everybody left Islam I would be Muslim again. What shall I say to Allah? Everybody did so did I. False logic. Who can see the religion like that? I can't. As a result, your religion is yours, mine is mine. That´s it.

Time to see big pictures. Muslims will stay as Muslims. That's reality: 20% of world population is Muslim and -0.0000001 (I guess ex-Muslims are in this range)% loss. It is better to be a bridge between the religions. I strongly advise people to stop arguing minor or unnecessary details but try to look for similarities between us. I believe that anyone can be more happy if you do something for peace, what world needs now, instead of trying to divide people for the name of any religion.

I know nothing will change. People will send me similar comments again as they did before but at least I did my best. I will repeat this kind of messages frequently. Who knows one day someone says let's try. I am still waiting 4 that.
