    people will always find the thruth if they search for it whole heartedly. maybe they found their solace in Islam. its their choice and freedom of religion. and they have whole right to practise it if they find peace. and the same goes for those who leave Islam too. God will guide us to our destiny.

    Islam is a very practical religion. It offers a lot of intellectualstimulation. The two main concepts of oneness of God and brotherhood of manare some thing unique about Islam. There is no intermediary between man andhis creator. ..The Stipulation for prayer five times a day is an effectivemeans of direct communion with Allah the Almighty and the weeklycongregation of Juma prayer is a good opportunity for social interaction…It may seem strange to many, especially in the west, that I have embraced areligion that is an anathema to them in the context of terrorism. My answerto such a comment is that Islam as a religion is not to be blamed forterrorism. Islam does not instig! ate its followers to indulge in terroristacts.

It spoke aboutserving others, putting others first.” -Gonzalez, a formerly devoutCatholics Islam is a religion, which transcends all petty prejudices of color, raceand territorial boundaries. That is why the followers of other religions,with a nearsighted vision, have a sense of overflowing pride and relief whenthey embrace Islam. Deserting the religion of one?s forefathers is one ofthe most difficult decisions, but the golden principles and the virtues ofbroadmindedness of Islam have persuaded mankind to adopt it as a way oflife.-Jermaine Jackson, brother of world-famous star Michael Jackson,’I am doing this for God…A Latino women embracing Islam [external link] “I began to see Islam with its own eyes, as the unadulterated, pristinebelief in the one and only, the true God, Who does not beget, and was notbegotten, Whom nothing and nobody resembles . In place of the qualifieddeism of a tribal God and the constructions of a divine Trinity, the Qur’anshowed me the most lucid, most straightforward, the most abstract – thushistorically most advanced – and least anthropomorphic concept of God. TheQur’an’s ontological statements, as well as its ethical teachings, impressedme as profoundly plausible, “as good as gold,” so there was no room for eventhe slightest doubt about the authenticity of Muhammad’s prophetic mission.People who understand human nature cannot fail to appreciate the infinitewisdom of the “Dos and Don’ts” handed down from! God to man in the form ofthe Qur’an.” Dr. Murad Hofmann-Beltsville, Germany I am so very glad that I am a Muslim. Islam is my life. Islam is the beat ofmy heart. Islam is the blood that courses through my veins. Islam is mystrength. Islam is my life so wonderful and beautiful. Without Islam I amnothing, and should Allah ever turn His magnificent face from me, I couldnot survive.” -Torquato Cardilli (Italy’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia ) “There is some irony in the fact that the supposedly best, brightest, andmost idealistic of ministers-to-be are selected for the very best ofseminary education, e.g. that offered at that time at the Harvard DivinitySchool. The irony is that, given such an education, the seminarian isexposed to … much … historical truth. .. As such, it is no real wonderthat almost a majority of such seminary graduates leave seminary, not to”fill pulpits”, where they would be asked to preach that which they know isnot true, but to enter the various counseling professions. Such was also thecase for me, as I went on to earn a master’s and doctorate in clinicalpsychology.” -Christian Minister’s Conversion to Islam”When I told my colleagues at work that I had converted, their firstreaction was to ask whether I had a Muslim boyfriend,” she recalls. “Theycouldn’t believe I had done it of my own free will……Islam demands acloseness to God.

Rahman( the famous music wizard-India)”It has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in theQur’an about human development. It is clear to me that these statements musthave come to Muhammad from God, or Allah, because most of this knowledge wasnot discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammadmust have been a messenger of God, or Allah.”-Prof Keith L. Moore(Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology) Muhummed is the most successful of all Prophets and religiouspersonalities.- Annie Besant, The Life and Teachings of Muhammad, Madras1932, p. 4 ISLAM is the fastest growing religion in the West. Nevertheless, the Westhas many stereotypes and misconceptions about ISLAM that are due to themedia, prejudice, and ignorance. ISLAM is often looked upon as an extremist,terrorist religion. Many people hate ISLAM and do not want to acknowledgeits true teachings. In contrast to what many Westerners think of ISLAM,Islam is a peaceful religion, which does not promote any forms against theteachings. “A book which we have revealed to you (Muhammad) so that you may lead thepeople from out of the darknesses into the light by their Lord’s leave tothe path of the All-Mighty, the Praiseworthy.” {Invite (mankind, O Muhammad ) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islam) withwisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Qur’an) and fair preaching,and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best whohas gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who areguided.} (Holy Quran-16:125)

    It would be just as easy for me to make excuses for the bad things those people did, just as people have made excuses for the things that Osama B Laddie, and Zwahiri Potato did.

    Because they felt like it? Freedom of religion, something I hear doesn’t really exist in most Islamic countries.

  9. MAdison says:

    good question These are obviously well educated well liked individuals that many admired. It seems the “they” in the news of nameless persons of “that religion” spurs along the distrust, but when you can relate to the person as being perhaps from your ethnic or language group, they suddenly morph into being OK. It;s much easier to hate those that dress.talk. appear different to us. we really can’t even see beyond that once we’ve formed our opinion with news on TV encouraging it. Of course these are successful welloff persons(not all started that way but many did) that didn’t feel desparate as many poor do in oppressed areas….

    Best way to correct the misperception of Islam and show its loving and compassionate side is to first accept and have compassionate empathy for those who misperceive Islam. Then, realize that the problem is those who are giving Islam a bad name (the terrorists and others who do bad things in the name of Islam). Then, each time a terrorist does something bad in Islam’s name, or each time an Islamic theocracy subjugates the rights of women in the name of Islam (e.g. can’t drive in Saudi Arabia), get one’s fellow muslims to openly protest in large numbers against them.
