What things that you know about Muslims ? Have you ever visited an Islamic country? Or dealt with a Muslim ? Do you think that media misleads the truth ?
sort by best latest
Thank you for your full understanding for the situation!! Actually, a lot of the upper echelons are trying to raise the awareness between people about terrorism but few of the youths are affected of some Terrorist groups.
Think there's few people that mean too them and also make fun of them way they are and for what do with religion and this why stick up for them not saying stick up kill people or anything just saying that they have right what want and who they are.
A verse in the Quran says (And you will find that the closest people in friendship to the believers (Muslims) are those who say, "We are Christian." This is because they have priests and monks among them, and they are not arrogant.) Al-Ma'ida,82.
Lisa, my community too. Just wrote a Hub on a non profit organization of Muslims who go out and feed the homeless, take donations and pass them out to those in need and new Refugees. That is awesome!
You are such a nice person. And I really feel comfortable as a Muslim when I know that there are Non-Muslims who loves and respects us. Thank you :)
I would reply to you but unfortunately they only allow me to write 250 characters :D
I have seen many Muslims speak at churches for "interfaith outreach". Given how much the Koran hates on Christians and Jews, I'd like to see rabbis, ministers and priests in mosques as speakers - anything less is cultural colonization by Muslims.
Tamara you are talking a lot of sense around here! I like it lol. So true, a believer of truth would have no problem debating another religions followers... wouldn't the other side be crazy? Or might it make more sense.
The quran says to kill infidels which are non believers... do you think this is a good religion still?
The bible says to kill gays, witches, non believers - do you think Christianity is a good religion still?
What is the practice of Christianity today compared to the practice of Islam. How many Christians are beheading anyone, blowing up, killing, injuring etc.
Islam is actively doing these things today and they never really stopped.
Show me the verse where it says for followers of God aka Christians to kill gays, witches, & non believers... Please show that Austin or stop spreading your lies... I am talking strictly whats in the text...
It seems to me there is a simple solution. Place an overriding principle in the Quran and Bible that Man/Woman should not harm another Man/Woman. Any writing that breaches this principle is Not Scripture. Police do arrest people without harm.
Yeah all those muslims I am sure would happily hand over their qurans to be changed.... lol. They would be taking a lot of that story out.
Yes Robert, there would be resistance. Many words/stories would be renounced in both Bible and Quran, but those who accept the principle would be in accord. The ones who refuse the principle are the Terrorists.
Actually the Bible does not command modern day believers to kill. That was the old testament and God backed his people in time of war. It is the quran that incites modern day violence. We turn the other cheek.
I wish somebody would tell me exactly what Islam teaches because some say Islam is a religion of peace, but how can you judge and condemn people who don't believe in Islam. I know various people who left Islam and had to leave their families as well
Look up the quran verses about killing the infidel. If you like I can provide the exact verse? The infidel is the non believer. Muhammed was a mad murderer and outside societies described him as such. That is what the quran their holy book teaches...
Ishaq Ayad: did Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) pick up the sword? Did he fall from Grace?
Maybe Rola and Ishaq can clear that up. Do Muslims still believe that? If so it is definitely not a religion of peace.
What does it matter if some muslims "still" believe it. If it is in the quran, the book they follow, then the religion is not peaceful.
Robert is Right! If violence by God or Man is depicted as good in the Holy Books it should be renounced. Either rewrite the books or get a better one.
Rewriting the quran is not gonna work. It is dark and it is what all its followers have been abiding by or supposedly abiding by. That wouldn't make sense to them because they see it as absolute truth, the whole book. It needs to go. Violent hate.
sorry, for not replying guys, i'm new to this website & i only sign up for the money to buy Riot Points in League of Legends :D, however, for those saying that changing and adding things to the Quran or the Bible, this means it's not Godly anymor
Ishaq Ayad, please understand we do not want to change or add anything, only add a page heading to which we compare the text. Understand, Allah is Not violent. All violence is a projection of Man, Not Allah. Do no harm. Understand?
That's already written in the Quran bro
Ishaq Ayad, Thank you, but I do not understand how the Quran is used to justify violence if violence is forbidden. I propose a Bible and a Quran with a heading on each page renouncing violence. Then it would be clear. Clarity is needed.
The Bible does not tell its modern day followers to be violent. Stop saying the Bible with the quran Jay C. Only the quran incites its modern day followers to be violent. Plus no one is going to change a religious book.
Robert, Yes, the New Testament does not promote violence, yet many Fundamentalists use the Bible (Old Testament) to justify violent acts. I am trying to make the distinction clear. A Header on each page is for Clarification. Understand?
What fundamentalists are committing violent crimes and citing the Bible? Please give sources, it seems you are making that up. People aren't that stupid, they don't need a header lol. Anybody who does is mentally ill.
i can clearly see that people like Robert are attacking islam ( be careful Robert or i may Allahu Akbar you ), thou this is why i don't reply, some people don't discuss objectively, i can't write everything due to comment policy but i'll giv a link.
Yes I am against Islam. I am not afraid! God of the Bible is the only true God. The quran is mentioned by outside societies as a twisted version of the Bible. Jesus was known as the Jesus of the Bible by outside cultures. Also quran does call4 violin
dude, i'm not trying to scare you -_- i was kidding, & i'm not trying to convert you, but i didn't attack your religion, so don't attack mine, & i love Jesus as a prophet that's how he's mentioned in the Quran, read more, peace to all of you
Robert, please see Hubs I where I interviewed Fundamentalist Preachers, a Rabbi and a Hindu. Read what they say. I am not making up what they say. God is God over every person, not just one group. Be fair and include same language in Holy Books.
The only reason blacks become Moslems is to piss whitey off.
Jesus said "You must be born again."
Sgt. Prepper - actually, 10% of the Africans brought to you he US were Muslim. Kunta Kinte was one.
Sadly slavery was already a thriving industry in Africa long before Columbus was even born and still exists on that dark continent now. The slave-traders actually rescued those people bringing them to England, Spain and the Americas.
You see them as illogical because mostly you just have read The Bible which has been distorted for several times. And for the matter that there is no God I advice you to watch this video which will summarize it all http://bit.ly/1RvkStu
Rola - your video is not proof that a god or god exists, neither is the bible or the Quran. They are just things made by men. Spiderman doesn't exist either although there are books and videos about him too.
See books by Raymond A. Moody, Jr., M.D. on Near Death Experiences (NDEs). Some NDEs have been verified while the person was clinically dead. Verified NDEs are proof of an afterlife. See site, IANDS.
Do you realize that these practices are actually not a part of the religion of Islam but cultures? What you have listed are awful human beings doing awful things. Such a list can be made for any group in this world. Even poets.
Many of them also the same in Christianity or other religions. But of course, none of them respond in the same way as you say
I don't think that this list is found in any GROUP, and certainly not in poets.
I would like to see your other groups.
Like i get that you're xenophobic but do you think that there's no overlap between "poets" and "Muslims"? Let alone "poets" and "terrorists"? That's bizarre.
Well alwaysgogreen & blabla... the quran is the most violent religious text around. It spreads hate & predijuce towards other religions more than any other religion! Its leader muhammed was a mass murderer who had a lot of wives. Is that a ro
Well the Bible does not tell its followers to go out and kill non believers like the quran does! Also Jesus was not waging war when he was alive like muhammed did.
Jesus is Lord, Allah is the devil, Kenyan-born Obama is the Antichrist & Jesuit Pope Francis is the False Prophet. All we can do is preach the message of salvation, stock-up on ammo, bottled water, canned food, dry-goods & pray for The Raptu
Sgt. Prepper - paranoia will destroy ya!
I might be paranoid but that doesn't mean I shouldn't be ready for The Rapture and prepared for man-made disaster and martial-law.
I am pleasant to read this comment. Some of your words were very kind for me as a Muslim.
Although I wanted to say that as I live in the Gulf Area, many Indians are working here and I dealt with many of them; they are very friendly. :)
Well if the quran does incite violence then islam is bad and muslims would be too. See most followers of all religions are not devout but rather passive. In islam the devout ones if true to the text can be considered terrorists.
You are believing of what Muslims actually believe. You just need to say (Al-Shahadatain) (The two certificates) to be officially Muslim.
It's never too late to become a Muslim and you are always welcome to Islam :)
Why do you have to repeat PBUH every time you write or say Mohammed's name? It is repititious memorization that doesn't help your prophet or your religion. It is offensive to hear this over and over again. Are you forced to say it?
Did the prophet use the sword or authorize killing/ use of the sword?
Yes he was a mad murderer and described as such by cultures & societies outside of the mulisms. I would call him a warrior & a conquer such as the ISIS soldiers today. I think the hate speech in that book needs to be banned as a way of live.
One falls from Grace when they pick up the sword.
One also loses their head at the hand of a terrorist that has that sword.
Get smart, be alert and MOVE away from danger. Jesus said, "Love your enemy," but do not become a martyr. Learn to walk away.
Well Jesus Christ of the Bible is the real Jesus. The one in the quran is a twisted version of Jesus. The Jesus of the Bible is backed up by accounts of other societies. Not the Jesus of quran.
Well the quran says to kill infidels which are non believers. If you don't agree with that then why do you agree with the rest of the book?
That is in the battle. Don't mix up battle and terrorism. @Robert If you have any more confusion read my hub Islam and misconceptions
Read Nadine Al-Budair's article on what the Muslim reaction would be if Christians who had lived in their nations for years started blowing up buildings, attacking people and discriminating against Muslims.
@Kabir that verse wasn't about "the battle" it was about when other groups who don't believe, infidels, oppress the muslims, it says to kill us for oppression is worse than slaughter. Well the book incites violence and needs to be opressed!
So does the bible, roob
Which bible, and where. Infidels???
i need verses from the BIBLE as proof. What you think of Christians doesn't count as fact!(: So give verses that say for Christians to go out and kill non believers, or witches, or gays? What verse or verses tell us to do so?(: Or STOP LYING!!!!
Mathew 10:34 "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." Bible verse - written BEFORE the Quran. God gave laws for slavery and sexual conquests BEFORE the Quran. SAME god too.
First I am a christian but Jesus came to bring division not peace, that is actually a verse. We are separated from the worldly sinners. Not to take part in them and be clearly divided in our thoughts and actions.
Roob, That is your interpretation. Why do you suppose Jesus would want to separate you from the sinners? He forgave them of their sins! Why would god want to separate his own creations, especially after salvation?
Either you write with knowledge or you keep silent. This sort of wrong information you want to spread is unfair and wrongful, unfortunately, I am allowed to comment only with few paragraphs. I call u to read the Qraan and history of M
The Holy Qur'an 2:62
Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord...
I have read the Koran in two separate translations, so yes, I know what I'm talking about.
The quran has it twisted. The Bible says God is the only way and the quran has been commented by other societies as a twisted rendition of the Bible!
try living next to a muslim family ;) cuz all you said is wrong except for the women part
that was partially wrong

Obama was born in Hawaii, not "Kenya". and he is not a muslim, nor is he the anti-christ. We aren't going to have martial law or the "rapture". You need professional help, dude.
Obama is muslim. Look it up if you don't believe. Have you actually researched it? He has said a ton of times he is muslim.
Check your facts - http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/muslimfaith.a... Obama is NOT a muslim, not now, never has been, never will be. It's a FALSE accusation.
If you wana use snopes articles watch this one!
At 1:00 he says "I can't believe John Mcain hasn't brought up my muslim faith". You can watch the whole video though if you like! http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/foxvideo.asp
I did watch it. Apparently you don't undersand what they are saying and doing. Read the transcript. He is saying that John Mccain did NOT try to accuse him of being a muslim! Is English a 2nd language 4 u?
he seems to jump around a bit in that transcript. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hi-V_ilJu0w sound like a christian in that video http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/may/2/oba... you trust this guy?
Yes, I do trust Obama, very much. He is my president and he is the leader of the free world. He is also one of the most respected leaders in history - http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/dec/28/ob...
Did you WATCH that video I just linked to and READ that washington times article I linked you... & you still trust him?
Technically illegal-alien Obama could not legally run for Dogcatcher. President Trump will put Hellary behind bars and Bathhouse Barry in front of a firing squad.
Strange how the MAJORITY of Americans feel that Obama was duly elected to the office of President TWICE! So, your sour grapes don't mean a thing in reality. Your hatred means nothing but sadness for you.
In 1981CIA Director William Casey told President Reagan "The disinformation program will continue until everything the American public believes is a lie." I tell you now that day is here. I hate Big Brother Obama & his False Prophet Pope Francis.
You should prepare yourself for a padded cell and a straitjacket. Maybe some Lithium too.
I agree with all what you have just said. And I know that not all the Western people hates Muslims and I realized that through this Q&A. Most of the answers where positive and just 1 or two were not. Thanks for your love :)
Local news does not always make the national or world news. And local news is generally conservative in nature. They ignore a lot of "minor" crimes that show how hateful we have become to outsiders.
Very true Austin!
Jews have the highest % of hate crimes against them but you never hear about it. Now the muslims have one mosque spray painted and its on the news.
People often generalize about media the way they do many other topics including Islam, politics, police, doctors, lawyers, etc. They are either all bad or all good.
There are about 2 Billion Muslims around the world. If we really kills people who are outside of our beliefs so why you are still alive until now ?
What I said is True, and your statement doesn't make any sense as a response to my statement.
Right on brad!
ISIS is wahabbi Muslims. They are basically like Westboro Baptist Church. They are extremists. They are small but are growing and they do not define the norm of a Muslim.
Can you tell the difference between any Muslim including them and a Terrorist Muslim? There are more terrorist Muslims than found in ISIS.
Yep your right again Brad!
I think most people realize that, but just don't want to admit it. Terrorists are terrorists, no matter what religion they are.
Yeah just think of all the crazy Amish people cutting off heads and suicide-bombing!
Or the KKK hanging black people, or the Puritans burning witches, or confused Timothy McVeigh bombing our citizens on our soil, or Trump wanting to bring back torture and concentration camps. Yes, just think about that!
Yeah let the terrrorist kill our people but we can't torture them... you are so liberal and misled wow! An eye for an eye is common sense! The kkk violence is nowhere close to the killing by muslims! Ignorant! You think KKK is more worrisome thanISIS
KKK is indeed more worrisome than ISIL. You are way more likely to be killed by a Christian terrorist than a Muslim on in the USA. Jesus said, "Turn the other cheek", or do you just read the parts of the bible that you agree with?
Wow, the war on terror is the biggest issue in the world right now yet you think the KKK is more of a worry... God Bless this ignorant liberal country... you can go to a church and complain but can you go to ISIS and complain to them... please do!(:
What is inside you that makes you want to KILL people? What is inside you that makes you want to HATE other people for their beliefs? What is inside you that makes you want to LIE to yourself? @roob
Responsible media reports the news. It doesn't make the news. But like everything else in life, it isn't perfect.
Your right about the Bible saying turn another cheek I agree with that! The quran says to kill infidels, you and I are infidels by definition. I desire them to stop believing and spreading that filth. So they by verse think we should be killed.ThatsY
You can't compare any old church and ISIS. ISIS represents the most extreme of a religion and a very small % of Muslims. Walk into any random mosque and I bet you'll be greeted the same way as if you walked into a church.
It is the root of the teachings I am getting at!!! When people become truly devout and the teachings incite violence as does the quran... you get what we call terrorists. Now many muslims and Christians are not devout but passive instead.
roob - kindly read up on some of the research done on what makes someone an extremist. These extremists tend to be 'newcomers' to religion, stop going to the mosque & lead 'unislamic' life styles. They *don't* follow Islam, actually.
The San Bernardino killers Dad says my sons view on Islam is conservative after he killed. Mohammed had many wives and killed many people! They are following after their leader. What I have seen has shown they did follow Islam and were involved.
