Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Christians vs. Muslims

Submitted by A (United Kingdom), Dec 13, 2006 at 17:30

You say:

1) Muslims believe that Jesus could not have been sent by god because they don't believe his resurrection, even though many people have witnessed this.

2) And they laugh at the fact that jesus offered his second cheeck after he got slapped. They think what kind of great man offers himself to be hurt for a second time towards someone who wants to hurt him.

3) Also they think what kind of great man will suffer himself in the dessert for 40 days, even while they fast themselves during the Ramadan month."

1) Muslims do believe in Jesus and they also believe that he was a prophet

2) If you ask any muslim scholar they will tel you that if someone slaps you, you should offer the 2nd cheek because it is the other person who will be punished for their actions not you. And also that you should never hurt any human being (although muslims around the world are doing this, it means they are not following islam truly and that they should not really call themselves muslims)

3) we fast in ramadhan because God told us to. It is to experience whet life is like without food or water and what it is like for the poor people. Christians do lent right? Is that where they give up ONE food for lyk 15 days or sumthin? i can't remember. please inform me about lent because i forget...
