"Islam, An Arabic word, is rich in meaning. One important dimension is the "commitment to submit and surrender to God so that one could live in peace" peace (salam) is achieved through active obedience to the revealed Commandments of God for God is the Source of all Peace. Commitment to Islam entails striving for peace through a struggle for justice, equality of opportunity, mutual caring and consideration for others' rights, and continuous research and acquisition of knowledge for the better protection and utilization of the resources of the universe."

Islam rejects characterizing God in any human form or depicting Him as favoring certain individuals or nations on the basis of wealth, power or race. He created the human beings as equals. They may distinguish themselves and get His favor through virtue and piety only.

It is narrated that one of the companions of the Prophet (pbuh) once asked the Prophet: 'Prophet of God, give me a comprehensive directive of Islam, after which I need not ask any one else about it'. The Prophet replied: 'Say: I believe in the One God and then remain steadfast on it'.

In fact, the message of Islam, is so simple, that even a bedouin nomad could understand. Whereas, christianity is so nonsensical, that no christian understands it, not even Drs in theology.

Islam is the natural teaching of humanity, whether humanity accepts it or not.

Really, Islam is so simple? It is a religion of peace?
Do Muslims not have different views of various aspects of their religion?
Are there not Muslim books to explain the religion?
I have been to Mosques and seen that there are different interpretations of the Koran, I have seen it on tv, read it in Muslim literature.


Here on this site I often read posts by Muslims that seem to me to be deceptive and arrogant at the very least. I do not see examples of love and tollerance.

I would hope there are always Doctors of theology discussing different aspects of God. God the creator of our universe, whoever you believe him to be, must be greater than our mere mortal comprehension and surely trying to understand him better is a good and noble thing.

The message of Jesus, as reported in the Gospels (which we cannot be certain report faithfully the teachings of Jesus) was quite simple, but has been complicated by Christians, starting with St Paul, who was probaby the real founder of Christianity.

It is true that Islam is more homogenous than Christianity, but if it was that simple there would not need to be any books about it.

Both Christianity and Islam are equally simple or complicated according to how you want to take them.

The problem with monotheistic religions is that they seek to monopolise the truth, so that they are never going to be reconciled with each other.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. (John 14:6)

is irreconcilable with

There is no God but God and Mohammed is his prophet

If Christians and Moslems assert the truth of their respective religions it is inevitable that they will appear arrogant to each other.

The majority of Christians and Moslems follow their respective religions simply because they are born into them.
1. Michael Hart , author of ‘The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History’ said: "My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular level.”

2. Annie Besant,

wrote in ‘The Life and Teachings of Muhammad’ : “It is impossible for anyone who studies the personality of the great Prophet of the Arabs, and come to know how this prophet he used to live, and how he taught the people, but to feel respect towards this honorable prophet; one of the great messengers whom Allaah sent”

3. Th e British philosopher, Thomas Carlyle, who won the Nobel Prize for his book ‘The Heroes’ wrote: “It is a great shame for any one to listen to the accusation that Islaam is a lie and that Muhammad was a fabricator and a deceiver. We saw that he remained steadfast upon his principles, with firm determination; kind and generous…"

4. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German writer said: “Us, Europeans, with all our concepts could not reach what Muhammad has reached, and no one will be able to precede him. Indeed, Muhammad succeeded to subdue the entire world to monotheism”. George Bernard Shaw in 'The Genuine Islam,' Vol. 1, No. 8, 1936.

"If any religion had the chance of ruling over England, nay Europe within the next hundred years, it could be Islam."
“I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Savior of Humanity."

"I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today.”
Yes, sure Milky, but I was responding to the post that started this thread.
