How can u tell i need to study my own religion more? Richard, dear friend, i live Islam daily. I breathe it and i love it. I learn from it. Havent you seen the world? You must be a true person to be able to interpret a book the correct way...you must have the faith to understand it. But instead, go to a real Muslim and i repeat real Muslim, and look at their daily life. And u will find Islam there. Indeed, I can sense you read alot and everything, but you know a sad thing Richard? people who already follow Islam are following it wrong...i wouldnt blame you. I understand you and where u come from. And i respect every aspect of your thought. And believe me, if a day comes where i must invite people to see my religion for what it really is, i will joyfully do it. I used to hate it when people assumed all Muslims were bad, but now, i dont. I try to prove my self worthy of my faith Islam and good people will see that. I hope.

Your writing is quite powerful i must admit, but my heart cannot be swayed. It hold on to a rope of faith too strong to break or move. i can sense that ur faith is just as strong. so whats the point of trying to prove each other wrong and waste time? we believe what we want to believe.....and who knows who's right? God will be the judge.
