Its time to correct our faith before death

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]
in response to reader comment: It's time the scriptures(koran and hadith)are revised for much evil has crept in

I doubt very much whether such articles are being written by muslims. There are high chances that these are self made messages with the Muslim name written by some anti-islamic group. Or it could be possible that a person born in a muslim family but grew up in a total non-muslim culture having very weak knowledge of Islam just convinced by the anti-islamic material. Anyway, I strongly disagree with whatever comments Mr. Mansoor has given. The holy Quran is revealed by Allah (swt) and

Allah Himself has promised to guard the Qur'an

Allah has promised in the Qur'an :

"We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly Guard it (from corruption)."
[Al-Qur'an 15:9]

Some pagan Arabs alleged that the Qur'an was forged by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Allah (swt) challenges these Arabs in the following verse of Surah Al-Isra:

"Say: If the whole of Mankind and Jinns were together to produce the like of this Qur'an they could not produce the like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support."
[Al-Qur'an 17:88]

So, I challenge Mr. Mansoor & Company to sit down or lay down to start their study for the revision to bring changes in the Quran. They will definitely fail in their efforts as Allah (swt) challenged in Surah Al-Baqarah:

And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our servant, then produce a Surah like thereunto; and call your witnesses or helpers (if there are any) besides Allah if your (doubts) are true.

But if ye cannot – and of a surety ye cannot – then fear the Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones – which is prepared for those who reject faith".
[Al-Qur'an 2:23-24]

So be ready to face the consequence if you fail in your effort. If you are failed to have an answer of a question then its your fault that you dont have that knowledge to do so dont blame religion or Quran. Islam is the religion for all human kind not only for Arabs and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the last messenger of Allah (swt) for all human kind till the end of this world. Similarly the holy Quran is the last message for all human kind. There is nothing harshness or intolerance in the holy Quran its just your misunderstanding/misconception as things are being presented out of context by the anti-muslim elements. As far as the Hadith are concnerned, several great scholars have done a great job to collect Sahih Ahadith of Prophet which could be referred and there is no doubt in their authenticity. No one is imposing Islam as a religion on anyone, everyone is free here to accept it or reject it. They will soon come to know what they were told was correct or wrong when they die.

HEREAFTER – LIFE AFTER DEATH

Many people wonder as to how a person with a scientific and logical temperament, can lend any credence to the belief of life after death. People assume that anyone believing in the hereafter is doing so on the basis of blind belief.

There are more than a thousand verses in the Glorious Qur'an containing scientific facts. Some have been discovered by the science and others will be discovered as the science advances.

Concept of peace and human values or good or bad is useless without the concept of hereafter. One thing or act can be bad in the eyes of a person but could be good or beneficial for another one.

Every human being wants justice: Do the human law provide justice to all human kind?

The people who do injustice should be punished: Can we punish a murderer of 100 people as compared to a murderer of a single person?

This life is a test for the hereafter: If it is not, then why few people are wealthy and enjoying luxuries of life and why few are poor and don't even have enough food to eat. Life is a test for both of them.

Final justice on the day of judgment. No human law can provide 100% justice to all human kind. There will be definitely a day of judgment for final justice.

WHEN IT IS DEAD SURE THAT THERE WILL BE A DAY OF JUDGMENT AND LIFE AFTER DEATH, ONE SHOULD FOLLOW THE RELIGION INSTEAD OF PASSING LIFE IN HIS OWN STYLE.

ALL RELIGIONS BASICALLY EXHORT MANKIND TO BE RIGHTEOUS AND ESCHEW EVIL. BUT ISLAM GOES BEYOND THAT. IT GUIDES US TOWARDS PRACTICAL WAYS OF ACHIEVING RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ELIMINATING EVIL FROM OUR INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE LIVES. ISLAM TAKES INTO ACCOUNT HUMAN NATURE AND THE COMPLEXITIES OF HUMAN SOCIETY. ISLAM IS GUIDANCE FROM THE CREATOR HIMSELF. THEREFORE, ISLAM IS ALSO CALLED THE "Deen-ul-Fitrah" (the natural religion).

May ALLAH (swt) show us right path………… Aameen
