in response to reader comment: It's time the scriptures(koran and hadith)are revised for much evil has crept in

my dear brother Mansoor,

when I see your comment subject, it says that the scriptures should be "revised for much evil has crept in". are you implying that the Quraan and Hadith have been changed over the course of 1400 years? my friend, Allah has promised us that His protection is over the Quraan until it is brought back up to him near the Day of Judgement. so there is nothing new in it.

also, a rational mind was given to us as a test. remember that when Adam (as) was created, the angels protested, saying that the humans with a completely free will would cause corruption and fitnah (chaos) in the world. of course Allah said that He knew well of what He was doing. also, the meaning of Islam is "submission" [of our wills to the Will of Allah]. so the concept of rational thought does not come into religion. the deen of Islam is what it is...it cannot be changed and, though i do not wish to be confrontational, ISLAM is the greatest gift given to us by Allah through our beloved Prophet (s).

the Prophet once said in a hadith (Holy narration) that there will come a time when too many questions are asked [about the deen], and people will continue to ask questions about creation until the question will arise "Who created Allah?" let us not give into the pressure to change the beautiful deen of Allah to cater to modernists. we are Muslim, and that is it. Islam is Islam, and it cannot be changed...anything else is a man-made religion. my regards, Mansoor.
