      Islam's FAQ

      2- Does it discriminate against other believers? If no, then why are Muslims always in Jihad and trying to kill anyone who doesn�t believe in Islam?

      3- Does it respect human rights at all? If yes, then why does Islam order to kill any writers who write anything against Islam?

      7- Is Islam a successful system to follow? If yes, then way are all the Islamic countries so retarded? And why are all their governments currupted?

      1- What is Islam? Is it really a true religion?

      Islam is an Arabic word that means submission and surrendering to Allah (Allah is an Arabic word which literally means �The One God�) and obeying the orders He gave us through His messengers (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon them) who�s the last one of them was Muhammad the son of Abdullah who was from Quraish one of the most respected Arabic tribes in Makkah. Islam is the religion that states that Allah (God) is The Creator of everything. He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; and there is no one like Him. All creatures are His slaves and they must worship Him cause He is the One Who�ve created them and blessed them with everything they have. Islam is the godly system that Allah (God) has ended all the religions with and made it so perfect to cover all aspects of life, including the relation between the person and his Creator, the relation between him and other people like parents, children, wife, husband, neighbors, governors, etc. Islam is not a religion that only tells you how to worship your God (Allah); it is a full way of life.

      Yes, it is indeed a true religion because it was delivered by a person (Muhammad may peace and blessings of Allah be upon them) whom even his enemies testify that he is the most honest and trustworthy person they ever known and they used to call him (the honest trustworthy). Also all the previous scriptures had mentioned him including Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism and Christianity. He also had many miracles that until now no one could have; and the greatest miracle he had was the glorious Quran. Islam, Christianity and Judaism have the same origins, they all go back to the prophet and patriarch Abraham, and their three prophets are directly descended from his sons: Muhammad (peace be upon him) from the eldest Ishmael, and Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them) from Isaac.

      Someone may ask about Allah The Almighty � why did he send plenty of prophets without mentioning the word Islam at all? �. The answer is very clear: �Islam� is an Arabic word while those previous prophets were not Arabs! Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them) did not speak Arabic. But still they did deliver the same message that prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) delivered which is worship Allah (God) The Almighty and only Him and this is basically Islam. The difference between Islam and the previous religions (messages from Allah) is that Islam is the latest message from Allah and its scripture is still clear from alteration that affected previous messages.

      2- Does it discriminate against other believers? If no, then why are Muslims always in Jihad and trying to kill anyone who doesn�t believe in Islam?

      First, you should know an important rule in Islam, which is that no one is allowed to force any person to become a Muslim. But also we must inform every one about Islam if we can. So no one is going to kill you cause you did not become a Muslim. As an example, Muslims ruled Spain for about 800 years. They never used the sword to force people to convert. Later the Christian Crusaders came to Spain and wiped out the Muslims. There was not a single Muslim in Spain who could openly give the adhan that is the call for prayers.

      Concerning Jihad, It seems that you have a wrong idea about it. Jihad is also an Arabic word, it literally means �starving� or �struggle� and is shorthand for Jihad fi Sabeel Allah (struggle for God�s cause). In a sense, every Muslim is a Mujahid, one who strives for Allah (God) and justice. The real Jihad - like what my brothers told you � is the warfare against (one�s own) passions. Jihad is the Muslim�s purest sacrifice: to struggle to live a perfect life and completely submit to God. Another form of Jihad is the striving to translate the Word of Allah (God) into action. If one has experienced Allah (God) and received guidance from the Qur�an, one struggles to apply that guidance in daily life. So the larger, more prevalent meaning of Jihad is the spiritual struggle of the soul. In this case, Jihad is always present for the believer. We should never reduce Jihad to violence. A third level of Jihad is popularly known as �holy war�. It is one of the ways to spread Islam. And to bring the meaning closer to your mind, imagine that you have a cure and you know that people need it. If you are a good person you will try your best to give them this cure and let them see that it really solves their problems. Even if they refuse to use it and think it will harm them you will do every thing to convince them that it is good for them. And that is basically what the third type of Jihad means. Muslims do not go to other countries and just start killing people! No, first they send a message to the ruler of that country and tell him about Islam and that he should worship Allah and only Him. If the ruler accepted and became a Muslim and tell his people about Islam, then it is all right and people have the right to become Muslims or not. But if he refused to tell his people about Islam, they give him another choice, which is to live under Islamic law in order to let his people see the nature of Islam and the high principles it has. If he also refused then comes the last choice, war, where Muslims fight those rulers who stop in the way of peoples� happiness and spreading Islam, sacrificing their souls in order to let people know about Islam and see how it will solve their problems. You should also know that Islam lays down strict rules of combat, which include prohibitions against harming civilians and against destroying crops, trees and livestock. As Muslims see it, injustice would be to triumphant in the world if good men were not prepared to risk their lives in a righteous cause.

      3- Does it respect human rights at all? If yes, then why does Islam order to kill any writers who write anything against Islam?

      Islam respects human right. It prevents any kind or form of oppress. The life and property of all citizens in an Islamic state are considered sacred whether a person is a Muslim or not. Racism is incomprehensible to Muslims. For example, when Ali bin Abitalib (may Allah be pleased on him) was the ruler (khalifah) of the Islamic state, which was the largest state in the world, he had a fight with a Jew about a shield. Each on of them was saying that it was his. The judge (he was a Muslim of course) asked each one of them to give a proof that he is right (according to the Islamic law). The Jew gave a proof while Ali (may Allah be pleased on him) did not. The judge then gave the shield to the Jew not minding who Ali (may Allah be pleased on him) was, and Ali (may Allah be pleased on him) did not object or take the shield by force cause this is the order of Islam. Doesn�t a religion like this respect human rights?

      As for killing Muslims who convert to another religion, I told you before that no one is forced to accept Islam, people convert to Islam cause they like it and find it most reasonable. So why to convert to another religion? Is Islam a toy in their hands so they can embrace it or convert to another religion whenever they want? No, Islam is not a toy or a dress that you can play with or change any time you want! You became a Muslim with your own free well, so why to convert after living and seeing the truth. Those people are miserable, lost and have no acceptance for the truth. They have bad minds and souls and might be a great danger to their communities. They are like a rotten apple in a basket full of good apples; if you do not extract it right away it will spoil the rest. You should also know that those who convert to another religion are not just taken away from their homes and killed right away; the ruler first must give them a chance to think and reconsider their decision and if they insist, they are killed.

      4- Does it have free speech? If yes, then why does Muslims execute any writer who writes anything against Islam?

      Islam encourages freedom of speech, but not all speech only the open-minded speech that can be used to solve problems and discover more facts without any libeling or blind bigotries, and with minding politeness. But those people who have strange ideas and blind bigotries and who are not willing to be convinced, they just argue for the sake of arguing and will not be convinced even if they see the truth, including those who try to distort Islam by spreading lies about it and fighting it with all they can even if it takes them to say bad things about Allah (God The Almighty) or His prophets (peace be upon them), these people are not Muslims and should be treated like those who convert from Islam to another religion. It is all right to ask about things that you don�t know if you need an explanation; but spreading lies and saying bad things is not acceptable.

      In fact, I see that Muslims had freedom of speech more than any other people especially in front of their rulers (I don't mean the rulers of nowadays, I mean the real Muslim rulers in the past). As an example is the story of Omar bin Alkattab (may Allah be pleased with him) when he was first elected as the governor (khalifah) of the Islamic state. He gathered people in the mosque and gave a speech (khutbah) and when he asked them what would they do if they see him bend a little from Islam? A man stood up (he was an ordinary man, he had no influence) and said -in full self-confidence meaning each word he is saying- "If we see you bend even a little, we will straighten you up even if we have to use the sward to do it". Did khalifah Omar then ordered to kill him or send him to jail?! No, he didn't. He thanked Allah that he was the ruler of people like that. Isn't this freedom of speech or not? You will find many stories like that in our history if you are interested.

      5- Does it encourage peace? If yes, then why most terrorists are Muslims?

      Yes, Islam encourages peace and spreads love and weal between people. In fact, the word Islam is driven from the Arabic word "slaam" which means peace. Islam also fights evil, bad people and all what brings misery to mankind. Real Muslims (the ones who really practice Islam) are people with good principles and morals and their communities are the best in this world. Unlike non-Muslim communities that became decayed and have no principles (adultery is spread, children with no fathers are in millions and a lot of them are been killed right after birth, parents are being abandon by their children, drugs and alcohol are being used widely.. etc.). And as we all know there is always a war between good and bad. Thereby some people are really feeling bad because many people admire Islam and love the way Islamic communities live. So, they started spreading bad rumors about Islam accusing it of things that Islam really fights (like terrorism) in order to disincline people from it. This thing is very clear and obvious in the western media. There are movies that present terrorists as people wearing Arabic clothes. News most times bend the truth to show that Muslims are terrorists while others are not. News shows that unarmed Palestinians who try to defend their land as terrorist, while armed Israelis are the people who love peace. Peace! Which Peace? Is killing poor children with latest weapon is peace. See this link..

      Also, poor Muslims in Bosnia are terrorists! That is what news said! Why? Just because they tried to defend their land from the invasion of Serbs. Serbs made awful things to Muslims: killing, raping stealing, torturing, �etc. While the whole world was watching doing nothing until thousand of people were killed and mission accomplished, then news started telling some of the facts and some of what really was going there!

      Russians are also doing awful things to Muslims in Shishnia like what did they do in Afghanistan, killing, raping, stealing, torturing and any other thing that can occur to your mind. Yet, they are peace lovers while Muslims are TERRORISTS because they are trying to defend their land!

      In Eastern Timor Christians are doing horrible things to Muslims, things that even savages do not do.

      In Kashmir, the Hindus are doing their best to wipe Muslims out. In addition to killing and other stuff, they are ruining many mosques and Islamic books, while the world is watching.

      In eastern Turkistan (or Uyguristan), Chinese are doing the same thing to Muslims, but in silence! See it for yourself:

      When we review history, what do we see? Compare what the Islamic leader Salahuldeen Alayooby did when he entered Jerusalem with what the Christian Crusaders did!

      By the way do you know many persons were killed in the first and second world wars? Millions right? Who started these wars? Was it Muslims? No, it was not.

      Knowing these things and also knowing that Muslims are forbidden to harm civilians, destroy crops, trees and live stock in war, does a person who thinks in a logic way still believe that we (Muslims) are terrorists? If yes, then what do call Jews, Christians, Hindus, Serbs, Russians����.???????

      6- Does it treat both sexes equally? If yes, then why is a Muslim man able to marry four women at the same time while a woman can not? And why can a man divorce his wife while a wife can not?

      Islam gave each sex what is suitable for it and from the Islamic point of view, the woman is so soft, beautifull and gentle that Islam and good communities make her, in her home, like the Queen of bees in its beehive. She is a symbol for love, compassion, sympathize. She is always being served and everything that she asks is done. She is like a fragrant flower, and she is at the end far away from problems. But in bad communities she carries more than what she can, and she faces a lot of problems, and single-parent women are the best example for this.

      Concerning polygamy, I hope that you and everyone who read these words avoid looking from one point of view, instead its better to judge by counterpoise between the positives and negatives. All what my brothers said was true, I just want to concentrate on this point. The number of women is more than number of men and this is a fact supported by spectacular statistics; for example there are 8 women for every man in Sweden. So if a man married one woman only, what will happen to the rest of them?? don't they have the right to live with a husband and to have children.. Yes, most of women, even Muslim women don't like their husband to have another wife, but regardless of their feelings we should think of other women as I said, we should protect them from deviation from the right. So, do you think that there is a better solution for this matter more than what did the people Creator -Allah- set to them. And you can't compare having a girlfriend with marrying a wife b/c marrying -as you know- isn't just a written paper only - specially in Islam, the husband should hold the responsibilities like taking care and paying expense for his family, also he should upbring his children and pay them their expense even after divorce .

      The following points enumerate the reasons why polyandry is prohibited in Islam:

      1. If a man has more than one wife, the parents of the children born of such marriages can easily be identified. The father as well as the mother can easily be identified. In case of a woman marrying more than one husband, only the mother of the children born of such marriages will be identified and not the father. Islam gives tremendous importance to the identification of both parents, mother and father. Psychologists tell us that children who do not know their parents, especially their father undergo severe mental trauma and disturbances. Often they have an unhappy childhood. It is for this reason that the children of prostitutes do not have a healthy childhood. If a child born of such wedlock is admitted in school, and when the mother is asked the name of the father, she would have to give two or more names! I am aware that recent advances in science have made it possible for both the mother and father to be identified with the help of genetic testing. Thus this point which was applicable for the past may not be applicable for the present.

      2. Biologically, it is easier for a man to perform his duties as a husband despite having several wives. A woman, in a similar position, having several husbands, will not find it possible to perform her duties as a wife. A woman undergoes several psychological and behavioral changes due to different phases of the menstrual cycle.

      3. A woman who has more than one husband will have several sexual partners at the same time and has a high chance of acquiring venereal or sexually transmitted diseases which can also be transmitted back to her husband even if all of them have no extra-marital sex. This is not the case in a man having more than one wife, and none of them having extra-marital sex.

      The above reasons are those that one can easily identify. There are probably many more reasons why Allah, in His Infinite Wisdom, has prohibited polyandry.

      Concerning prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) many marriges and the awful things that you said about him, you should know that he (peace be upon him) married his first wife (Khadijah may Allah be pleased with her) when he was 25 years old, she was 40 years old and she remaind his only wife for the next 25 years until she died. After that, he married several women for several reasons, one of them was a lonely old woman whos husband been killed while he was defending his faith -her name was Um Salamah-, another was Aishah who was the only, put a line under "only", wife who didn't married before and he married her to show his love to his best follower -her father- who is called Abo baker. So as you see, if Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was after physical pleasure, he did not have to wait until he was more than fifty years old to start marrying more wives. Although he lived in a society in which it was quite acceptable to have many wives. But the prophet remained devoted to his only wife for 25 years. When she died she was sixty-five years old (May Allah be pleased with her). It will take time to talk about all his wives one by one. So please refer to this site:

      Concerning women and divorce, well you have wrong information. In Islam a woman can ask for divorce if she can not stay with her husband.

      Finally, through researches it happened that there is no system or law that gave the woman her rights and duties better than Islam all through the history before Islam -in ignorant time- and after Islam up to our freely days. If you have more questions you can go to this site:

      7- Is Islam a successful system to follow? If yes, then way are all the Islamic countries so retarded? And why are all their governments currupted?

      The answer to your last question is as clear as sunshine cause none of the Muslim countries nowadays is really practicing Islam in all aspects of life, do you know what are they practicing? just manmade laws from their selves or from the west. Even education is imported from the west. If you want to know the result of really practicing Islam just look at history where Muslims were ruling the largest and most successful state in the world; spreading weal and knowledge, while Europe was stumbling in darkness and the church was not able to decide wither a woman is a human or a devil. The Islamic state produced many well known Muslim scientists in all types of knowledge. So, Islam isn't the reason for the retardation of Islamic countries nowadays. In fact, the reason is that they left Islam.
