19. VAST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISLAM AND THE
ACTUAL PRACTICE OF MUSLIMS
Question:

If Islam is the best religion, why are many of the Muslims dishonest, unreliable,
and involved in activities such as cheating, bribing, dealing in drugs, etc.?

Answer:

1. Media maligns Islam
a. Islam is without doubt the best religion but the media is in the hands of the
westerners who are afraid of Islam. The media is continuously broadcasting
and printing information against Islam. They either provide misinformation
about Islam, misquote Islam or project a point out of proportion, if any.

b. When any bomb blasts take place anywhere, the first people to be accused
without proof are invariably the Muslims. This appears as headlines in the
news. Later, when they find that non-Muslims were responsible, it appears
as an insignificant news’ item.
c. If a 50 year old Muslim marries a 15 year old girl after taking her permission, it
appears on the front page but when a 50 year old non-Muslim rapes a 6 year
old girl, it may appear in the news in the inside pages as ‘Newsbriefs’. Everyday
in America on an average 2,713 cases of rape take place but it doesn’t appear
in the news, since it has become a way of life for the Americans.
2. Black sheep in every community:
I am aware that there are some Muslims who are dishonest, unreliable, who
cheat, etc. but the media projects this as though only Muslims are involved in
such activities. There are black sheep in every community. I know Muslims who
are alcoholics and who can drink most of the non-Muslims under the table.

3. Muslims best as a whole:
Inspite of all the black sheep in the Muslim community, Muslims taken on the
whole, yet form the best community in the world. We are the biggest community
of tee-totallers as a whole, i.e. those who don’t imbibe alcohol. Collectively, we
are a community which gives the maximum charity in the world. There is no
community as a whole in the world which can show even a candle to the
Muslims where modesty is concerned; where sobriety is concerned; where
human values and ethics are concerned.

4. Don’t judge a car by its driver:
If you want to judge how good is the latest model of the “Mercedes” car and a
person who does not know how to drive sits at the steering wheel and bangs up
the car, who will you blame? The car or the driver? But naturally, the driver. To
analyze how good the car is, a person should not look at the driver but see the
ability and features of the car. How fast is it, what is its average fuel
consumption, what are the safety measures, etc. Even if I agree for the sake of
argument that the Muslims are bad, we can’t judge Islam by its followers? If you
want to judge how good Islam is then judge it according to its authentic sources,

i.e. the Glorious Qur’an and the Sahih Hadith.
5. Judge Islam by its best follower i.e. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh):
If you practically want to check how good a car is put an expert driver behind the
steering wheel. Similarly the best and the most exemplary follower of Islam by
whom you can check how good Islam is, is the last and final messenger of God,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Besides Muslims, there are several honest and
unbiased non-Muslim historians who have acclaimed that prophet Muhammad
was the best human being. According to Michael H. Hart who wrote the book,
‘The Hundred Most Influential Men in History’, the topmost position, i.e. the
number one position goes to the beloved prophet of Islam, Muhammad (pbuh).
There are several such examples of non-Muslims paying great tributes to the
prophet, like Thomas Carlyle, La-Martine, etc.

AFTERALL BIBLE IS FULL OF ETHICS AND MORALES AND RITUALS AND PROHIBITATION FROM BAD DEEDS HOW DO YOU SOLVE THAT

Jesus is not a get out of hell free pass.  After you perform your good deeds the salvation of Jesus erases the remaining debt.  None of us on our own would ever be able to undo our bad deeds on our own.

I don't think Hitler even thought of the after life or tried to do good deeds working towards being with GOD.
 
If GOD pardons osama bin laden because he turned to Christ and asks forgiveness then I must accept that GOD is just.

Is there a single verse in bible in  injeel new testement that jesus Peace be upon him said i am going to sacrifice for the sins of humanity, which is logically cant be proved because by this all the teachings of bible will go in vain.

Second did he said i must remain in hell for four days as the christanity believes about him.

Third did he said after believing in my salvation or sacrifice do good deeds so then you get pass out of the hell,

If so why good deeds when he has sacrificed for the sins of humanity.

Fifth why does GOD according to christian belief put his son in hell fire when he is so loving.  Does any father does like that. ANd you mentioned this verse from bible

Tariq have you ever read the Bible?  Why is this font so big!!!

Luke 18

Jesus Again Predicts His Death

 31Jesus took the Twelve aside and told them, "We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. 32He will be handed over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him, spit on him, flog him and kill him. 33On the third day he will rise again."
John 3
16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

believer,
you are stuck with someone else's catchy pharses that do not work most of the time. This is just one example. Read this:
Genesis 6:9
This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God.
39:64 Proclaim: Is it some one other than God that you order me to worship, O you ignorant ones?"
