It is true that Muslims have strongest faith on the Oneness off Allah the almighty. As you know that Islam holiest book is Quran, which has been never changed since his arrival in to the earth. That's the miracle of the Quran. We are not talking about the thoughts of imams and the cultures of Arabs as well as the various translations of our Holy book. We are talking about the Quran is in Arabic language as a unique one. You have a change to do an experiment on your idea, which was about the Quran was changed in the years. Get a Quran in Arabic language, change a single letter, and articulate this is the real one. Then, wait and see what will happen in your life.

See, this is our in-dept faith divine, which any Christine and Jewish do not have, that makes us psychology and psychically very stronger. The Western culture people cannot understand the background of this belief system. Finally, in the Quran there is no violence and hostility. However, you can get that kind of aggressive impressions from the translations and the culture of Arabs, which is not in Quran…

Also, it makes non-Muslim groups happy that the Quran has these kinds of antagonistic ideas. This is an unrealistic happiness, which does not make you stronger in the front of Islamic faith. It is better that you start to read and understand the Islam what really says about so that you can find real and endless happiness in your life…..

On the other hand, Turkey is very secular country. We strongly connected to our roots and democratic foundations, which were established by Ataturk, from the bottom of our hearts. It means that we live our religion in our hearts, and obey and respect human rights. Moreover, we Turkish people are always ready to die for our country anytime and anyplace….
