Religion Should Be Subject to Trading Standards:
“Islam a religion of Peace” as a statement would not pass the trading standards in any country when cross examined against the Quran and Hadith. It is false advertisement and here is why:
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”Qur’an 9:29
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror, and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.”
Sahih Bukhari 4:52:220
You can see much more, including Muhammad’s actions here:
Now I hear you asking: “Why do some people convert to Islam and are convinced that Islam is peaceful?” they are shown the earlier verses of the Quran, also called Meccian verses. They are told that all the violence is linked to weak Hadith or “specific” historical events. And insist all terrorism has no place in Islam. In effect, they are sold Islam 2.0. Someone call the trading standards!!!
Another reason is that many are disillusioned with their religion (specifically those who are not happy with how quickly Christianity is adapting to the modern world). They are desperate to find an alternative. And Islam 2.0 comes across as more traditional. Islamists have spotted that and are targeting those disinfranchised people.
One time, a friend pointed that Islam can be seen as a branch of Christianity that went a bit far. A form of a Christian cult congregated around Muhammad in every statement we make from the Sahada (Islamic declaration), praying (where we mention Muhammad’s name many times), to the Hadith where we are supposed to follow what Muhammad did. Why are we idolating a human. Did Muhammad not say he is just like you and me…just a humble messenger who follows Allah”?
Now take your time to digest that!
