Authenticity of Islam

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Ali AKBAR (Pakistan), Nov 16, 2002 at 00:15

It is sad to see that people begin to to claim their scholarship even with minimum requirement of knowledge. I wish to place it on record that all nicieties of present day civilization have been donations of religion. Islam stood against idolatry, war lords and exploitation by the tribal chiefs.It stood for rights of human race.Prior to Islam,people buried their daughters alive and they were dealt as slaves.Islam banned this practice and gave equal rights to women folk.

No doubt, Islam opposed western style of freedoms, homosexuality, lesbian and gay clubs or the prostitution. Islam is a symbol of human dignity and guarantees for an absolute sanctity of human life and property. All jihad verses are related with the war period otherwise non muslims have always lived peacefully in Islamic periods. Who spread Islam in America? PEN OR MuSLIM ARMY? THERE WAS NEVER A MUSLIM ARMY IN AMERICA.There are countless examples where Muslim rule never existed but a large number of Muslims are there. Similarly, there are countless examples where Muslims ruled for centuries but non- muslims enjoyed full security of life and property. What will you say about it? Kindly re-read this great religion and enlighten your minds and conscience.
