    Aqeel Saeedposted 8 years ago

    Religion means a pattern of spending life. it covers all the aspects of life. it teaches the human the important things to do such as, speak the truth, gentle to neighbours,forgive the mistakes of others,ets. and not doing the things such as, robery, indulge in alcohl, fraud to others, etc. it is a routine practice that a religion is recognised of its followers but the truth is that follower is a person who is trying to make implement the rules of it in his life. sometimes he does and sometimes he fails. So dnt critisize a religion due to its followers because the einstein's theory made 2 things 1st atomic bomb and 2nd atomic energy for use in generating power and other useful. now einstein is not wrong, wrong are those who made bomb.

                No problem whatsoever, as long as all prophets and religions emphasise LOVE.
                Love makes the world a better and safer place to live.

                  So when Zaratushtra was there did everyone convert to a Parsee?
                  When Buddha came did everyone convert to Buddhism because he is the last prophet , were you a Christian before you converted to Islam?
                  Hopefully now you understand that all is one and the only difference is the language so stop trying to convert anyone.If there is one more prophet or many more prophets  will you convert again? This prophet will not be so stupid as to start a religion as the need of the hour is to unite them, make them understand there is only one god for all and you are only fighting over the name , not the meaning.

                The ideology working behind the protestors and their leader is HUMANISM and it's totally forbidden in ISLAM, so it's obligatory upon Muslims to safeguard the ultimate way of life, ISLAM. By the way, people supporting ISLAM and disaggreeing from protestors is double the number of protestors themselves. Behind all this, are Honorary Freemasons and Masons themselves just as they were the main cause of French and Italian Revolutions.

                  Where on earth do you get this bigoted conspiracy nonsense? Freemasonry is a secular organisation which embraces good men regardless of their religion, and provides an opportunity for men of disparate religious beliefs, faiths, and political allegiances to come together in peace and harmony.

                    Do you know about Mazzini???

                    Here, take it.

                    Italian Revolution:

                    The Masons in Italy were founded as an extension of the French Masons, and began to exercise an influence in Italy from the beginning of the nineteenth century. Masonry began its struggle against religion in Italy by means of another secret society that it founded and controlled. This society was known as the "Carbonari."

                    Two cardinals by the names of Consalvi and Pacca issued an announcement on August 15, 1814 accusing the Masons and the Carbonari of being organized for socio-political interference and the fomentation of hostility toward religion. Later the "Young Italy" movement was founded by Guiseppe Mazzini. Mazzini with the support of two other prominent Masons, Garibaldi and Count di Cavour, founded the Italian Union in 1870. Mazzini’s slogan "every nation a state" was the spark that ignited minority rebellions, which were to be the cause of the fall of multi-ethnic empires, such as the Austro-Hungarian and the Ottoman Empires. It was a call that pushed them into ethnic conflict with one another and inspired them to fanatical rage. According to lodge publication 10,000 Famous Freemasons, in 1867, Mazzini was chosen Master Mason of the Italian Grand Orient. All this prepared the foundation of Mussolini’s fascist dictatorship in 1920’s.

          Yes, it's compulsory to convert to Islam along with the choice of not converting to Islam. Just as a Psychiatrist suggests electric shocks for Mohit, it's compulsory along with the choice that Mohit does not want to become fixed and constantly wants to bear with the illness.

            Other religions are following these teachings for centuries before Islam came into the picture. They know god before many humans called Muslims did. The prophet Muhammad  was sent to put some sense into them , something others already had.Place more emphasis on the message than the messenger.
            Do you know the meaning of enlightenment? Was Muhammad enlightened?

              Not really according to Islam, as Muslims will generally tell you that Islam stretches back to the start of man. I understand though that you are referring to the addition to the religion that Muhammad made, but Islam considers early prophets such as Moses and Abraham to be Muslims too.

              Even if you take that stance then you still run into problems when it comes to labeling a larger concept such as Islam based on the actions of adherants to specific branches of say Islam.

              I am fairly certain that many Christians for example would not appreciate it if I lumped them in with the beliefs and practices of the LRA, or even with the beliefs and practices of Mormons.

    I visited the Baha'i temple in Delhi and was impressed by the basic tenets of the religion:

    Bahá'í teachings emphasize the underlying unity of the major world religions. Bahá'í notions of progressive religious revelation result in their accepting the validity of most of the world's religions, whose founders and central figures are seen as Manifestations of God.

      Manifestations of God is beyond reality and logic. If a scientist created a television then the scientist does not need to become a TV for making the users understand rather he wrote a instruction manual for the users. Similarly, incarnation is not a Godly act and God - Allah did not need to becaome the creation rather he forwarded the instruction manual and the last one is QUR'AN

            Yes but was it completed when he was alive? No . The prophet didn't know how to read or write so how was he sure that his followers were writing what he was asking them to?
            Now the Guru Granth Sahib,Bhagwat Gita, Patanjali yoga sutras, Buddha sutras are written by the masters themselves.
            According to Islam there are two categories of prophets , the one who writes is considered the higher.

              The whole Qur'an was written at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Every time after getting revelation, Muhammad (pbuh) used to call his companions (who could read and write) at once, Muhammad (pbuh) used to speak the verses of Qur'an and intructed them to write, after they wrote, Muhammad (pbuh) instructed them to read what you have written, the companions used to read it and if there were found any mistake, Muhammad (pbuh) at once corrected them right there.

              That's one of the reasons Qur'an is still intact word by word, even letter by letter for more than 1400 years ago. The whole Qur'an was written under the direct supervision of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). No other scripture of the world has this beauty, no other prophet ever wrote his scriptures under his supervision and that's one of the reasons all the other scriptures got corrupted by their followers from time to time.

      Yes, buddy you are right. All the major religions instruct their followers to obey and follow only ONE God but their follower dont. All the major religions prophecised about Muhammad (peace be upon him) as the Last and Final Messenger and instucted to follow him when he comes but their followers dont. So, it's the fault of followers not the religions who is ordering them to enter ISLAM. Any way that's their choice, they can make it as they want.

      How can you a mere mortal decide which is best? You have no clue as to the morals of Islam and at the end of the day this is what religion stands for, Morals and morals alone, not some god in the second sky who watches your every move. gees talk about paranoid.

      Religion was a way to control people.

      As long as you be one of the good guys and stay in control there is no need for religion. The only thing I can not understand is "Gin", "Ghosts" What are these?

      I have a genuine photo with a ghost and a friend of ours, I know its genuine as my wife took the photo with here phone,

      I will hunt it out and post it here.

    My 15 year old daughter and I were discussing the differences between Christianity and Islam.

    Even she could see that Mohammed plagiarized the story.

    Just because he was the last prophet doesn't mean that he was the best, it just means that he had more information to spew.

    And if he was so great, why didn't he "name" the person to follow in his footsteps?  If he was such an excellent prophet why didn't he plan ahead for the time after his death?  Didn't seem like he had much foresight to me.  So, after Mohammed's death, his followers didn't know who to follow....some followed his father-in-law, some followed his son-in-law and we have had Sunni-Shiite conflict ever since.   So.....basically all the fighting and killing and conflict that we see is due to a family disagreement.  That's not the kind of religion that I want to follow.

      Prophets do have foresight but not as much as god does.

      Prophets don't have all knowledge.Jesus "Why have you forsaken me"
      Muhammad was an excellent prophet like any other prophet.

      There are two prophecies one saying there will be one more prophet and the other there will be an innumerable amount of prophets. No one really knows or can say for sure, I don't.

      Religions do branch out over dispute as to who the next heir will be or who is to be worshiped and this just becomes ugly with time.
      This has happened with Hinduism, Christianity and Islam.

    Maybe you are a very young girl but you have hub pages weighed up, and being young does give you kind of an excuse to say some of things we dare not..... come back in 6 months and the same topics will be going round and round....
