Mr. Nuray

Have you studied islamic history, if you did, please go thorougly, or if you havent, i would say your comments are utterly misconception about the root of islam.

I dont mind islam as a rules made by a Human named Muhhamed and of course i do agreee he is a talented and a very shrewd person to be able to manipulate the feeling and thoughts of the major ppl then and still now too. why now at the modern age because islam have some common tricks such as its a peaceful religion (though its isnt), allah almighty can mercy on any best wrong doings you did if you properly repent. it has a polygamic culture, and it has a very good thought about heaven of enjoyment sexual. and believe me or not it has some kind of marketing policy because it has able to spread.

i agree that there are some rules that are humane and and good as a practice of culture but islam is not the originator of those cultures. these had been already rooted in pre islamic history, so theres no claim 4 islam to clarify those cultures traditional authenticity. Allah a name that was already the pagans were using as the boss of the their god and allah didnt felt shame to take the same name. hajj a practice that was existed even before islam came. and according to islamic law youre just a mawali , not a true arabic muslim.

So if u want to know more about islam please see historic ref. and cultural tradition. dont just give comments that is from your own blind faith.
