in response to reader comment: Read this and tell me what Islam is.....

I think that the reason of the problem is not here or there .

1- i think that the muslims who were jailed for rape are from another country , they are from different culture.

unfortunately some people travel outside Islamic countries to western countries where women are like what the cleric said (uncovered) because they have bad deeds . they are corrupted or what we call bad generation i mean (some few ).

we have statistics that one of the things that lead to what they did is migrating to outside.so you shouldn't link Religion with someone who believes in that religion with his bad commitment unless the religion it self telling him to do that , if the religion were telling him to do that ,then it's not considered a religion from God any longer. The religion is innocent from these bad commitments.

We have everything we need in our countries (money,friends,relatives,houses,peace in society)why would they travel out side .education ?!

2-We cannot live outside ,or we will be like fish without water.

Islam which is translated into english (submission) made a nation's which individuals are so pure that they don't think even about hatred :D . have you ever heard of a nation of virgins ? that's it .

God will punish us for the smallest sin ,there is no hope to go to Heavens or The Paradise, only by mercy of God . every human even if he were muslim,christian,jewish, even if his faith is pure ,he will be punished for every single mistake he had done unless God forgives him.

Neither Mohammed nor Jesus are going to pay for our sins and let us just simply go to The Paradise.

all of this is written in (Recitations) or as it is named in arabic (Quran) .the holy book

now i will move to why , i don't mean any insults.

in our societies and as a rule in the holy book there is a fair punishment for the ones who rape which don't exist outside .

if they were not married they must be whipped in front of people embarassing him for what he did and banished for about a year .if we look at this rule in my opinion, this will make anyone who commits that crime feel guilty .if he comes back and become good and make an oath to him self not to do it again then he will be good . other wise he is nothing but a thug who only threatens society's inner peace and let him stay outside if he wants. he is still free to come back but he may not come back because he don't have a concious of guilt in him self . so let him stay outside ,he is nothing but a guy who sold his soul to devil.

now the even bigger one which what if he were married ? . this is considered an even bigger crime ,because he is already married and still aiming for bad deeds such as rape . his punishment as i remember is that he has to be killed by throwing stones at him unless his intentions were not bad or he was seduced or led to a trap by someone .

you see these rules led to the following , during 80s AIDS appeared , but what's astonishing is that it hadn't appear on Islamic countries :) .

In the holy book it's written that who commits murder ,ravishment, drink or eats something that causes a state like being drunk and gambits with money is not considered a submitter to God any longer or he is considered outside the circle of faith (infidel) unless he repents and regrets for what he has done or surrenders to court and recieve the right punishment ..then God may forgive him .

This is a serious issue in our countries . we prefer death on contumacy ,we would do anything for not to break these rules .

becuase of this, Ravishment or any of the crimes mentioned in the holy book is not common in our countries ,on the other hand , the veil did really protect the woman in our countries from Sin .

so no one in our countries dare to do anything that may break her virginity .+ fathers may kill anyone who tries to do something bad to their daughters .

i hope you understand ,when you move ice from cold to extremely hot temperature ,of course , the ice wont melt it will even evaporate .

Now don't tell me anything about freedom because what you see freedom could be a cage to us and what you see a cage ,could be freedom to us.

people including women are happy with or without the veil ,men are happy because instead of throwing the world behind to think about a pretty girl's hair or whatever ,they are capable to focus on their job with a clean mind.

unfortunately the BAD SICK multimedia which reached our societies is making fool of virgin people and telling them in a silly tone (be cool , do whatever you want) and that's why we feel upset about who ever tries to challenge our belief for the sake of his SICK goals.

In conclusion , i advise people anywhere to respect other people's beliefs and cultures before dealing with them +understanding it first. (you are free to judge about how you see things ,whether it's bad or good ) .

In the holy book it says (who harms people from other religions for the sake of religious hatred ,will never smell The paradise).which means also not respecting other people's religions is a bad thing .

Submitters(muslims) are taught to respect and in case of facing someone who don't respect their religion ,they are to advise only in a good manner or just forgive and let it pass .

and don't tell me we don't respect others beliefs and cultures because if we don't ,you wouldn't see the ancient old artifacts which proves jhudists existence in Saudia Arabia .

I'm not attacking you or something , i've expressed my feelings and the feeling of some of the good people in our society .

sorry about mistakes in pronuciation .

Islam (submission) is the path of God's justice ,freedom ,peace and mercy.

Submitting....
