Assalamu alaikum.

Saying something about Muhammad Rasulullah is different from bare reading the holy Qur'an that the Western civilization has been encouraged to do but get misled. Read about his history and you will see the justification. I am not here to argue on Muhammad.

Read the Qur'an 22:12-13: He calls besides Allah unto him that which can neither harm hit, nor profit him. That is straying far away. He calls unto him whose harm is nearer than his profit: certainly, an evil patron and certainly an evil friend!

Assalamu alaikum.

But who will initiate and maintain continuity? Nature? The expected earthquake? Sandy hurricane?
Is he above all of mankind? Certainly cannot be Abraham, Moses or Jesus son of Maryam. The worst of them is Muhammad Rasulullah! He was innocent for he said: Bring a Book from Allah superior to the Torah (the written and oral law of Moses and what is revealed to me the Qur'an) so that I may follow it for guidance if you are telling the truth.

Assalamu alaika Caringheart.

This is from the Qur'an 30:41: Evil (sins and disobedience to Allah) has appeared on land and sea because of what the hands of men have earned (by oppression and evil deeds) that He (Allah) may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return (by repenting to Allah and begging His Pardon). What of the remains of your cathedral?

There's the saying that God helps those who help themselves. Trust in God but tie your camel is an Arab proverb with a similar meaning and a reported saying of Prophet Muhammad.

So how can we help ourselves? Here's what should be on the list in my opinion:

1) Tougher gun control laws
2) More budget for school psychologists
3) Better awareness about the consequences of (online) mobbing
4) Less violence in movies, tv series and computer games
5) Better scripts showing how conflicts can be handled without violence (STNG is a good example)
6) Clear statements from religious leaders that calls for violence in the Old Testament and the Qur'an do not apply to the present time (explaining the historic context why these calls became part of our holy books)

A religion that's intolerant of other religions can't be the world's best religion --Abdel Samad
Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people--Eleanor Roosevelt

I can absolutely agree with #3.

return to family values and structure would go a long way...
