Here’s why Islam is practiced so differently from country to country

Source: Business Insider

No religion is unified. How Catholicism, for example, is practiced in rural Italy differs from the way this is done, say, in New York city. Language, culture, tradition, the political and social contexts, and even food is different in these two places.

Such geographic differences are certainly important in Islam. But also important are the numerous legal schools and their interpretations. Since Islam is a religion predicated on law (sharia), variations in the interpretation of that law have contributed to regional differences.

  1. Islam will always reflect Muhammad’s life and his Quran.
    During his 14 years in Medina, he dictated most of the more virtuous parts of the Quran.
    After being persecuted, he fled to Mecca where he lead 80 raids in 9 years, until he was poisoned.
    This is where most, but not all, of the extremely violent verses of rape and commandment to kill to advance Islam came from. And so Islam will always reflect both kinds of Muhammadism.

    • typical extreme christian lying against the Quran.

      No where is rape promoted in the Quran. ironically rape is mentioned in the bible!

      In fact the Quran promotes justice and protection of women’s rights.

  2. FROM MY PERSPECTIVE;

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH ISLAMIC TEACHING & MUSLIM’S SCHOLARS TODAY?

    THE FIRST MISTAKE;
    There are many sects in Islam today.
    Each of sect has a imam or spiritual leader.(imam).
    Each Imam has millions followers

    His followers believe in him or his Imam blindly.
    What ever Imam says, they follow it without skeptical at all.

    Allah and prophet has warned His people to be careful with your leaders, non man on earth always do rightly.

    Do not follow idols.
    ٱتَّبِعُواْ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُمۡ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُواْ مِن دُونِهِۦۤ أَوۡلِيَآءَ‌ۗ قَلِيلاً۬ مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ (٣)
    وَكَم مِّن قَرۡيَةٍ أَهۡلَكۡنَـٰهَا فَجَآءَهَا بَأۡسُنَا بَيَـٰتًا أَوۡ هُمۡ قَآٮِٕلُونَ (٤)
    O humankind, follow what has been sent down to you from your Lord, and do not follow any Scholar (idols) other than His laws. Little you heed to advice! (3) How many a town We have destroyed! Our punishment came upon them at night or when they were having a nap at midday.QS 7:3-4.

    ٱتَّخَذُوٓاْ أَحۡبَارَهُمۡ وَرُهۡبَـٰنَهُمۡ أَرۡبَابً۬ا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ
    They have taken their priests and their scholars ( like Abu Bakr al-Baghdad, Al Qardawi, Al Zawari, Osma Bin Laden, Muslim & Bukhari, Hurairrah, Hambali, Hanafi, Maliki, Safie etc ) for their Lords ( idols) besides God’s laws. QS.9:31.

    Those who follow scholars (idols) blindly, he will fall into sinful Syrik and go astray.
    Allah will bring disaster, misery, sorrow on him, his friends and followers as we see in Muslim countries today. From Nigeria–Libya, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan–Pakistan etc.

    THE SECOND MISTAKE.
    Islam is religion of; peace, mercy for all, love, mercy, forgiveness, tolerance, freedom of religion, speech, expression, justice for all people regardless his belief, race, gender and ages, prosperity and Modernity.

    Those who practice the truth of Islamic teaching correctly will result / produce a good Muslim, peaceful Muslim, lovely Muslim, respectful Muslim, generous Muslim, tolerant Muslim, and live in wealth and happiness.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH ISLAMIC TEACHING & MUSLIMS SCHOLARS TODAY?
    BUT what we see today is opposite, Muslim hate each other, judge each other, punish each other than destroy one another as we see in Arab countries, where Islam and Prophet was born, the fruit of decades of hate teaching has been coming to the fruition, millions innocent people including children have been suffering, displacing and killed,
    Nauzubillah– I am very sad, pity, heartbreaking, embarrassing. What is about you?

    There is some thing wrong with Muslim Scholars or Islamic teaching.What do you think?

    WHEREAS–The Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), said:

    “None of you has faith until you love for your neighbor what you love for yourself.”

    These Golden Rules are found in Christianity, Judaism, and other religions.

    “Love your neighbor as yourself. If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.”
    “If you love God, but you still hate others, you are a big liar”

    Love is the seed of peace, happiness, and prosperity but hatred is the seed of the darkness, violence, poverty and then destroy one another completely as we see in Arab’s countries.

    These are the messages we must give the next generation.(our children and grandchildren) at home and schools.

    Oh God, please guide all Muslim political and spiritual leaders to the right path of Islam. Ameen
    Was Salam–All love
