  1. I feel that Malala.Y is angel, Allah needs Malala to fight the extremist clerics who destroy the true Islam in Pakistan, afghsnistan and all Islsmic countries. To fight for equal right between girl and boy relate to education, heritance job etc

    May Allah protect her always and guide her to the right path of Islam. The right path of Islam is not the extremist but progressive Islam.

    Progressive Muslim

    • Yes! But we feel that the right path of Islam is not Somi’s confused Islam (denying the Islamic declaration of faith that ‘there is no God but Allah and Mohammad is His Prophet’. According to Somi’s interpretation of progressive Islam God has a Son, which in all others eyes means he is some kind of mixed-up Christian. Not accepted by Muslims for saying Jesus is God and not accepted by Christians because he somehow also says that Mohammad (peace and blessings be on him) is a Prophet. For the right path of Islam please visit http://www.alislam.org and watch http://www.mta.tv

        Yes, my faith is different with most Muslim around the world, only Allah has the right to judge all of us. Who is the true path of Islam.

        Who is Islam?
        Most Muslim think that Jews and Christian are not Islam. But Allah say that they are all Islam look at 22:78.

        15 Struggle for (seeking the pleasure of) Allah, a struggle that is owed to Him. He has chosen you and did not impose any hardship on you in the religion, the faith of your father Ibrahim. He (Allah) named you all ( Jews, Christian, Sabiin ) as Muslims earlier and also in this (Qur’an), so that the Messenger becomes a witness to you, and you become witnesses to (other) people. 16 So establish Salah, pay Zakah and hold fast to Allah. He is your patron. So, how excellent He is as a patron, and how excellent as a supporter! (78)

        Do you reject this verse Rafiq? Do you have different interpretation? Show it to me!

        Our Prophet Muhammad was a His messenger
        Jesus was a His messenger and Holy Spirit ( God’s Spirit)

        My faith in Islam believe in both of them.
        I feel satisfied what I found, it is blessing.

        I would like to share this faith to you all. The true Islsmic faith.
        All our love❤️

      • Jesus was a minor prophet. He did not even bring a new law.

        JESUS – PROPHET OF GOD
        https://www.alislam.org/library/books/prophet-of-God/
        Jesus was the last prophet in Israel. He was called the son of God, an expression that was in common use in scripture but was always employed metaphorically and in no single instance did it connote God. Nowhere in the Gospels or the Epistles is it said that Jesus referred to himself as God or implied that he was God .

  2. Prophet Muhammad pbuh affirmed that Jews, Christisn and Muslim

    but say: “I believe in the Book which Allah has sent down; and I am commanded to judge justly between you. Allah is Our Lord and your Lord. For us (is the responsibility for) Our deeds, and for you for your deeds. There is no contention between us and you. Allah will bring us together, and to Him is (Our) final goal. Q.42:15.

    What it means from this verse is that Jews, Christian and Prophet Muhsmmad’s followers are brotherhood in Islam

    But Most Muslim around the world think that Jews and Christisn are INFIDEL. That is wrong.

    My belief and most Muslim’s belief are different.
    What do you think Rafiq?

    All love❤️

    • I believe that this conversation is getting tiring and repetitive. Most Muslim around the world think that Jews and Christians are the people of the books. Most Muslim around the world believe that the Christian books are not the direct word of Allah, as the Qur’an is. All Muslims around the world, except you, believe that Jesus is a man and not a god or part god. see: JESUS – PROPHET OF GOD

        ===Jesus was a minor prophet. He did not even bring a new law.==
        From my view, it is different.
        Moses was a prophet but not Holy soul / spirit
        Jesus wa a prophet plus a Holy spirit.
        Our prophet was prophet but not Holy soul / spirit.

        Duty of Jesus was to fulfilled Moses teaching / laws.
        For example:
        1. “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
        Jesus say: But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

        2. Moses teaching forbid to eat pig-meat, after 2000 years later, Jesus reformed Moses teaching. People allowed to eat meat-pig.

        3. After 600 years after Jesus died, Prophet Muhammad pbuh forbid People to eat Meat- pig a lot, but allowed eat Meat- pig a little bit. Unfortunately, most Arab clerics twisted the God law, they said Muslim forbid meat-pig even little bit. It is wrong.

        Those who love to seek the truth, they are no tied, they try to investigate new thing. Except those who feel sutisfied with his faith.

      • I never heard that Prophet Issa (peace be on him) eat pork. And the rest of your mail: your own personal opinion … I am not aware of any Muslims agreeing with you.

  3. God is All Wiser.
    He sent His laws according to the condition of people where they live in and condition of knowledge of people.
    The time of Prophet Moses were very very primitively, lack of knowledge of health, Nutriation, hygiene, technology etc.
    Around 2000 years after Moses died, Prophet Jesus sent down by God.
    God changed His law regarding meat-pig. Jesus has fulfilled Moses law. Jesus followers were allowed to eat meat-pig or pork.
    Why God changed His law? Because the condition of people had changed too. People were more educated and more knowledge obout health, hygiene of animal ( pig ) etc

    At the time of Prophet Muhammad God changed His law again. Why? The condition of Arab people were lack of knowledge of health and hygiene.
    So God say; you can eat meat of pork a little of bit– not much– if people eat meat pork to much and often will harm your health. God forbid to eat to much.

    In 21 the century, Arab people still follow their tradition, ancient tradition who lack of knowledge. There is no progress at all in Arab tradition. Even women are forbidden to drive car. Can you imagine it, how Arab Muslim conduct their life in 21th century, modern life. They do not want to adapt the modern life style. Very sad.

    Unfortunately many Islamic countries are not aware of the true Islam. The true Islam is a religion of progressive.

    May Allah guide all educated Muslim to the right path of Islam. Amin

    All ❤️
