A well presented video. On one hand I think it's rather one sided, on the other, I don't blame him or her. Like the quran, The Bible and The Torah,
The Quran is NOT literal in every verse, it's a well known fact. There are verses that are literal for the time or era they were written. As a muslim
born and brought up in the UK, I think it's a shame, as both muslims and the media have equal blame in this. I feel through the study I have taken
over many years my realisation boils down to this, Just like The Torah and The Bible, The Quran was revealed many hundreds of years ago, although many
say that the original Bible and Torah texts are gone, the Quran has remained in it's original COMPILED form. What I mean is that when The Quran was
revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), because he was illiterate, he had to repeat it to his family so it could be written down and
then compiled into the book we now know as The Quran. Many children are sent to schools to learn the quran so that the message does not get lost, as
is of The Bible and The Torah.
If you look at many a different Bible and Torah, you will find differences, but remember they are either remakes or translations. Translations
differ due to the translators understanding of the language, experience, igorance and AGENDA. Some of you out there are headbutting walls out there
after the comment I've just made, so sit tight, THE QURAN HAS THE SAME PROBLEM! If YOU don't know the translated language, you're not going to know
the difference. YES, many translations have been manipulated to suit agendas and to indocrinate people, non-muslims and muslims are dying because of
it. Interlect plays a huge part, and as many verses have esoteric/hidden meanings, not everyone is going to find it's correct meanings. Think of a
dot, you are ten metres away from, move closer, it becomes a bigger dot, closer still, it's a ball, closer and it's a ball of wool, closer still and
get to see the fibres of the strings that make the ball of wool, but it still a dot those those who haven't experienced what you have.
Here in the UK there are islamic schools that teach there pupils that if you see a muslim man and his beard is shorter than a fistful is to be
treated exactly the same as the non-muslims. Question, what happens to a black man(no racism intended) who's facial hair takes a very long time to
grow and may never grow longer than a fistful?
In Saudi Arabia, there is a massive movement which is generally called by others as the Wahabbi which began in NADJ in Saudi Arabia by a man
named Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, born in 1703, who helped establish the first Saudi state, who with his followers killed countless people who did not
convert to Islam, who sent muslims to redo their compulsory pilgrammage to Mecca if they had previously followed a different path of islam, and also
claim the quran is to be taken LITERALLY. Although he passed away in 1792, his following and violent teachings are ever growing, the fact that that
the US, UK and other EU countries are going to war with arab nations is fueling a very big fire.
Even the The Holy Prophet PBUH warned us already, in the hadith,"O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Shaam. O Allaah bestow your blessings on
our Yemen." The people said, "O Messenger of Allaah, and our Najd." I think the third time the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, said, "There
(in NADJ)(note the birthplace of the movement above) will occur earthquakes, trials and tribulations, and from their appears the Horn of Satan."
Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 17, Number 147
You see, nobody will tell you about the time The Holy Prophet recieved 60 Christians into his own mosque, let them eat, drink, sleep and PRAY in
his mosque, Google "TREATY OF NAJRAN".
Nobody will tell you about the fact that most of jihad or war quoted in it's proper meaning is a war with one's self(Spiritual) hence the meaning of
Islam, Submission, a muslim's goal is for the hereafter, not in this present materialistic life. And did anyone tell you this,Suicide Bombers who
believe that they will recieve 70 VIRGINS have a few problems.
1. SUICIDE - is NOT allow under ANY circumstances, it suggests of no faith in Allah.
2. VIRGINS - are for MARTYRS DEFENDING their relgion.
3. AND - again it's down to translation..... they are not virgins as such....it's because "Virgin" is the closest a human can imagine in one word.
It's companions of PURETY, they haven't even heard a swear word, they don't know what dirt is, possibly close to angelic.
These suicide bombers have been brainwashed, just like many a muslim and non-muslim alike. Real and pure Islam is hard to find and takes an extremely
long time, in this age it's near impossible.
I do fear I'll labeled a liar, for which there is nothing can do. Peace to Humanity.
