  • I Think you are right about media. It's like witch hunt in the old days. I'm also looking into this because for religion to be this big there has to be more than just what media or hate mongers are telling us. I like your question because you are not just listening and following you are asking more information that doesn't mean i would convert but it's good to have you own facts so we can educate people and not create more hate. I believe all religion have something good to offer or people won't just join it.

  • Go to the library and check out a copy of the Koran (their bible) READ it for yourself, because just like ANY other bible everyone gets a different idea from it. So read it for yourself then decide what YOU think their views are. And GOOD LUCK because they ALL read the same Koran and MANY of them have the terrorist mindset and just as many are peacfull and kind.

  • NOWHERE IN THE KORAN DOES IT SAY TO KILL OR BE A TERRORIST. THERE ARE CRAZY PEOPLE IN ALL RACES AND RELIGIONS. AND A GOOD PLACE YOU CAN GO AND ASK QUESTIONS AND GET TRUE ANSWERS IS THE MUSLIM MOMS GROUP ON CAFEMOM YOU DONT HAVE TO JOIN AND THEY ARE ALL VERY HELPFUL.

  • (Part 2 ) reminds us if we perform the fasts of his mercy when one starves of hungar and has to watch their tongue in their words and so on we become so greatful its a way to remind us of His mercy, also Hajj (kaba where prophet Abraham PBUH had built the kaba for a house of worship this is the direction we face when praying, Sadaqa (charity) we are obligated to give charity for the sake of Allah out of the mercy he has sent us there are many types of charity, Praying (obligated 5 x's a day but there is more if one chooses) Islam is a reiteration of all the books Allah (God) sent down to all the prophets from Moses, and Jesus pbuthem and Mohammad were all given revelations Mohammad was the final of All from Adam all the way to Him, we must in islam believe in all the prophets Allah sent with purpose or revelation and so on all prophets received revelation from Allah through angel Gabriel (pbuh) please feel free to PM me also if u need to ask any questions

  • Peace VBRUNO islam is not a part of terrorism it is people who commit terrorism in the quran it speak against the killing of innocent people as did the Bible and Torah here is the verse in the Quran “Whosoever kills any person without another soul being involved or for causing corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind and whosoever saves the life of one it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.” (5:32)

    P.s., if anyone does transgress please know that Allah sees all and unless he forgives them they will be accountable

  • PM me and I will answer any question you have. If I don't know the answer to a question I will find it for you. The first suggestion I have is to buy or borrow a translation of the meaning of the Quran, penguin classic books has a good one, it is easy to understand. Peace.
