in this moment of time.......when one looks into every major incident that has caused great grief and sorrow in our present world..one can not help but see islam as the main cause and culprit behind these incidents........the examples are too many to list but some of them include terrorist attacks in newyork and london.
my question now is " would'nt the world be better if islam did'nt exist or at very least modified to suit the world we live in today?"
I guess u r entitled to ur opinions n we have the right to educate u on Islam because as muslims its our obligation to do so.. (but thats not to say u shud insult muslims!!!)
Anyways,the first thing al say to u is there is a difference between ISLAM and MUSLIMS. unfortunately, nowadays not all muslims u come across practise wat was really preached, there is a distorted version of wat Islam is.
Islam is a religion of Peace, just from the defination.The root of the word Islam is peace. so how can it preach contrary to its meaning?
Islam doesnt place anyone under any obligation to become a muslim, u have to do it on ur own freewill. We will without a doubt live better in this world if we try to understsnd one another. so al just urge u to study about Islam and wat It REALLY stands for. U can study the life of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W n the lives of his companion to see wat it teaches its followers.
If I extol the virtues of this great religion i doubt if al finish doing so.. because Islam covers our whole way of life, from the time we wake up to when we go back to sleep. it lays down etiquette for doin everything u wanna do; from drinking to eating, to dressing, to walkin...Everything...
To get back to ur question, it seems to me its malicious; not just a statement from someone who is askin for people's opinion but i might be wrong in my assumption, so if i am plz forgive me..
Are u certainly SURE that all the evil in this world is committed under the banner of Islam? or u mean something specifi?
For instance, we see rape cases against innocent and helpless people, kids as young as a few months old are raped, Isn't this in ur defination a cause of grief n sorrow?
The heartless and merciless killings of innocent and helpless people?
banning people from practising their religion, practising their values for baseless reasons?
We have many instances from all over the World, most specificaly, Western countries (no harm or malice intended) wher people are killed by armed gunmen, who have taken them hostage? n for what???
I can cite many scenarios but i believe u get my point..
ISN'T ALL THIS A SOURCE OF GRIEF OR U WANNA TELL ME ITS ONLY THRU BOMB ATTACKS THAT WE UNDERGO GRIEF N SORROW?
WAT OF INSTANCES WHER NON MUSLIMS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE ATTACKS?
There was an incident where a non muslim was involved in a bomb attack, unfortunately the details are vague, al have to jog my memory but if it serves me right, it was in 1998, New York? Are u awre of such an incident??
AND NOO THE WORLD WILL NOT BE A BETTER PLACE WITHOUT ISLAM, INFACT IT WILL BECOME THE WORST PLACE, IMAGINABLE!!! TRUST ME!!!
