I decided to open a thread due to the overwhelming misconceptions people have with Islam. I welcome any criticisms to the RELIGION. This includes texts, and history of the prophet Mouhammed (PBUH), and links to the other Abrahamics, and views generally accepted by Muslims of the other Prophets such as Noah, Moses, John, Jesus, David, Jonah, etc (PBUTA). I do not want to get into talk about what the Caliphs did or what Saudi/Iraq/Iran does, as they do not hold the key to the religion. People are fallible. God is not. Let's keep it about what we believe Allah has told us, and his prophets conveyed. Please be respectful when asking questions, but as far as I'm concerned bluntness will be tolerated. (there is not supposed to be a NOT after will). I do ask that IF I can answer your question, you not continue with examples of how certain people see these answers differing unless it holds contradiction to what I am saying based on Quran or Sahih Hadiths. When I say "I", I invite any Muslim on the board to answer, but keep in mind this isn't a "Listen to Me" thread, but rather a "here is my explanation" thread.
