The Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was one of the most peaceful human in history. He forgave the polytheists who persecuted him, tortured him not only physically but verbally and mentally. He was humble, trustworthy, honest, patient and hardworking. He is the role model of all the Muslims. He was not racist of any kind. In his time, the women in his city were considered little to no value except for a select few. They had no respect, no rights and no part in inheritance. Some tribes even buried their own new born daughters alive. The Prophet had three daughters all whom he loved. In fact, it can be said that the human being that the Prophet loved most was his youngest daughter. The sexism shown in Islam nowadays is the fault of extremists. Islam also forbids needless property damage and the killing of the innocents and the defenseless, therefore terrorism is also forbidden. Just because a few Muslims do terrorism and think it's okay doesn't mean all of them do. A whole community should not be judged by the actions of a few. Weren't all the Nazis Christians? Does that make all the Christians evil? No. So it would be appreciated if you actually research a religion except for believing everything a few ignorant people say and blindly casting judgement. We are all humans no matter which religion we follow.
Islam is more than a religion it's a way of life. A complete system, don't look to Muslims because we lost the Islamic values, many people found happiness in Islam.
Islam isn't just Jihad or killing people or that's not right (Haram) or that's right (Halal) Islam is something unbelievable, perfect and i mean it's really perfect.
Could you define if christianity is good or judaism or hinduism? No, why only Islam, why should Islam be the target of all religions in this world. Of course, Islam is good since it's peaceful, you cannot go against that. You cannot go against Islam as a bad religion which never caused anything bad in this world. Where's humanity in this world?
Society can't dictate what is good or what is bad. Look at Nazi Germany. If you grew up in Nazi Germany you would think killing Jews is a good thing, hence societal pressures can't dictate what is good and what is bad. Therefore we must take a holistic approach as different cultures and societies have different definition of good and bad. It may appear that the western lifestyle is inherently against Islam and therefore I seemed as bad, however many democratic rights do originate from the islamic faith. Much of the Geneva convention derives from islamic values too. A lot of what we now say as democracy is of the original message that the prophet sent down to us all. Thoughts like no arab is better than a non arab and no non-arab is better than an arab. Muhammed pbuh freed slaves well before the time of Abraham Lincoln. Muhammed pbuh taught us that all humans are equal and the colour of your skin is irrelevant. If Islam is a force for good and would no doubt have prevented the financial breakdown of western economies. Only now such shariah financial laws are being introduced which are leading to safer lending schemes that share th risk with the lender and the receipeint hence developing long standing financial relationships. Islam is good and we have much to b thankful for its existence.
Hell is absolutely immoral. It is absolutely no justice. Even in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia
Muslims even get sentenced to death for converting religion. Religion cause nothing but fear. I would be much better off without it. Human beings are such stupid idiots for bringing in religion. It has caused nothing but harm.
Look, I oppose their ideology and don't accept the fact they advocate it in other countries. Like most religions, It changes over time via the belief of the following community. Right now that community has a lot of beliefs in unethical practices and promote violence against non-believers as seen by this verse in the Quran.
"8:12; Strike terror into the hearts of the disbelievers. Cut off their heads and cut off all their finger"
I like my head on my shoulders. I don't know about you. ALSO to all the females. Do you wanna be treated fair? Well the Quran has this for you.
"Allah enjoins you concerning your children: The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females"
I can't see much of the good in that. And don't say "you're just cherry picking. " They practice these acts in other countries. For example Cologne New Years Eve where a hundred women were raped, Assaulted and treated like absolute crap by Muslim men. Tell me where is the "good" in that?
Just one thing. There are many muslim who wants to live in non-muslim countries. There are hardly ever person who wants to live in any muslim countries. Just ask yourself and answer it honestly. Question: If islam was to spread across the whole of the world in the past, not just Arabic Peninsula, North Africa, Middle East and some part of Asia, what would be the world today and which country would remain in the world where muslims prefer to live in freedom? The answer is nowhere. Today if muslims can still live in peace and to taste a little bit freedom, they chose to live in non-muslim countries and societies to speak free.
