  • It has a great deal in common with the other mainstream religions that emanated from the same region of the earth.
  • God is good.
  • Islam is a NATION. It is a people. It has a political system and a legal system. It only lacks a territory. . It's political agenda is fair to discuss, and to criticize. Its methods, its foreign policy, its stand on human rights, its politicians and spokesmen are all fair game. . Like the Moral Majority, and other evangelical political organizations, its religious root matter not at all. . We should take a close look. .
  • It seems to be quite popular.
  • The war on terrorism is a war on islam, and it is impossible for a pseudo Christian nation to adequately supress Middle Eastern muslims if we stray from the faith of our Forefathers, and what is more, it is impossible if we are fighting a civil war simultaneously with the overseas war.
  • Islam is a religion of peace... however there are some bad apples who are far left or far right radicals who aren't True Muslims... they only think they are...
  • That it makes no more sense than any other religion.
  • That 99% of them are good people, just as in every other demographic.
  • That I'm not forced to practice it.
  • It does manage to tell people to do good works and charity (of course this by no means makes up for negative teachings of Islam). It tries to set standards for rights, responsibilities, and ethics, and some of those standards are fairly decent. It makes no less sense than any other religion, and Muslims have not yet managed to kill as many people as Christians have.
  • Not a damn thing since all I got to go on is what I see on tv. Lots of bad people who claim to be followers of Islam making the good followers look ugly to the rest of the world.
  • God is God, I don't see why the hell it should matter who prophecieses what. I just don't get it. But, it being a major religion, I think it's still in its infantile state, due to the slow social and technological evolution of its nation. Though Christianity is responsible for shaping major parts of the modern world, Islamic religion is just as bloodthirsty and direct as Christianity once was in the witch burning days, example. I wouldn't really blame the religion or the beliefs though, but rather the absolute convictions that people bring to them, and the methods used to keep it alive. They're humans, just like the rest.
  • Islam defines itself. It does not bow to the descriptions of the kufr. . pedia.muftisays.com/index.php?title=Ummah www.juniata.edu/faculty/tuten/islamic/archive/glossary.html#U re-xs.ucsm.ac.uk/gcsere/glossaries/islamglos.html#U en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ummah www.ummah.com/ answering-islam.org/Books/Hughes [look under 'U'] . http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/reference/searchhadith.html [ check Sahih Muslim, search term "ummah" ] .
  • I have no idea how you get from what your father told you to here. . America is about the equality of men before God and before the law, yet there are racists, atheists, and criminals. . I am addressing Islam, not some Muslim you happen to know. .
  • That I don't know much about it.
  • Allhau Akbar.
  • Historically, Islam has been a very tolerant religion. And, it is argued that a good deal of the knowledge from Ancient Greece that sparked the Renaissance in Europe was recovered from conquered Islamic peoples. So on the whole, they have historically been more educated and accepting than European Christians have been. So aside from the psychotics who think blowing themselves (and a lot of others in the process) up is the road to salvation, the followers of Islam have done a lot of good for the world.
  • The Catholic Church teaches, "The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day." "It is my ardent hope that Muslim and Christian religious leaders and teachers will present our two great religious communities as communities in respectful dialogue, never more as communities in conflict." -- Pope John Paul II, Meeting with Muslim Leaders in Omayyad Great Mosque, Damascus, May 6, 2001. http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/speeches/2001/documents/hf_jp-ii_spe_20010506_omayyadi_en.html Christians and Muslims, following their respective religions, point to the truth of the sacred character and dignity of the person. This is the basis of our mutual respect and esteem, this is the basis for cooperation in the service of peace between nations and peoples, the dearest wish of all believers and all people of good will. As an illustration of the fraternal respect with which Christians and Muslims can work together, I would like to quote some words addressed by Pope Gregory VII in 1076 to a Muslim prince in North Africa who had acted with great benevolence towards the Christians under his jurisdiction. Pope Gregory spoke of the particular charity that Christians and Muslims owe to one another “because we believe in one God, albeit in a different manner, and because we praise him and worship him every day as the Creator and Ruler of the world.” -- Pope Benedict XVI, Meeting with the President of the Turkish Religious Affairs Directorate in Ankara, Turkey, November 28, 2006. http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/speeches/2006/november/documents/hf_ben-xvi_spe_20061128_pres-religious-affairs_en.html Dialogue are already taking place all over the world. Just in the United States there is the - Midwest Dialogue of Catholics and Muslims - Mid-Atlantic Dialogue of Catholics and Muslims - West Coast Dialogue of Catholics and Muslims For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 841: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/text/pt1sect2chpt3art9p3.shtml#841 and http://www.usccb.org/seia/islam_index.shtml With love in Christ.
  • I have tried to post a link to a youtube video Moez Masoud Islam Message...for some reason part of the address drops off....this is a youtube video and one that I find myself viewing often during the last month...
  • They don't knock at my door at 8 o'clock on a Sunday
  • Islam children are happy children.
  • This worldly life is test of humanbeing and Islam is complete code of life, THE JUST SOCIO POLITCO ECONOMO SYSTEM in this world. That is blessing not only for those who embrace Islam but also to the non-muslims. This is evident from the Muslim era, especially of Caliphat Umer.

  • Islam is that light which will direct us to heaven through this dark earth
  • It is a peaceful religion
  • clear faith which makes sense God is one
  • Peaceful Religion "If you want to live in peace, you must be able to start war"
  • Well they certainly know how to motivate folks.
  • The Brotherhood is definitely good, the other main thing is that in essence it is providing people with ethical guide posts to live their lives, (which is common to most main religions) ie. not to steal and murder etc.
  • It is a large cult. I had nothing against Muslims until I came to A/B. The few on here that I have "interacted" with, that claim to be Muslim, have been nothing but nasty, hostile and abusive.
