You Muslims are Making this Blissful Earth a Hell!

I think you have a very serious kind of misconception about Hindus and Hinduism. Have you ever read any Hindu Scriptures or religious books? Without any serious studies, please do not make false statements. (Refer to Dr Zakir Naik’s columns) .It is well known that among all the well-known religions, Islam is the newest one and it is from the same stream followed by Jews and Christians. So logically, you follow the same path followed by Jews and Christians and also you have added some rules just to make yourself different.

I am not writing anything about Hindus and Hinduism as I am convinced that you do not know anything about them. So you please first study Hinduism and then we can discuss. For heaven’s sake, stop glorifying Islam. This is the religion in the world which is causing most of the problems now. See the map of the world and if there is any problem, anywhere, Muslims are there. Why don’t you people just sit quiet and stop interfering in someone else’s matter. Do you people think that you will go to Jannat, but I think if there is any place worse than Dozakh, even that would be a relief for you all. You Muslims are making this blissful earth a hell.

No Party is Secular

I read M.A. Siraj’s article- ‘Triangular Contests Benefit BJP. So what do I do?

I am sorry, I do not find an answer to that question. If we just keep telling the so-called secular parties, what they should do or what they should not do, no one will listen to us. In fact, I wonder which party, if any, is really secular. Most of them are secular because it suits them, benefits them. We should see what we Muslims ourselves can do about it. It is upto us to improve our chances. In U P alone, we lost 9 seats because of the stupidity of some Muslims themselves. Had we won even 4 of these 9, we would have got 15, which is our ‘fair share’ according to the population.

Fake Skeleton

I read the June 2004 issue of the Islamic Voice and found an article on a giant human skeleton. Please note it is a fake one. Please read more about it by going to the following given below.

There are many such hoaxes which are available in the Internet- http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.

Etiquette of Language

I have been following the article- "Say No to Innovations" in the May 2004 issue of Islamic Voice and the immediate response to this from one of your readers in the June issue under the title-"Who Says Mawlid is Haram"? It is natural for people to differ in their opinions and thoughts. But it is sad the reader responded in a rather harsh language-calling the writer as foolish and a liar. The holy Prophet (Pbuh) has asked us to be gentle in our manners and language. Let us discuss and debate, but in a refined manner and polished language please! M. Khader Ali, Nellore, Andhra Pradesh

Blasphemous

Islamic Voice which preaches Islam and is an extremely useful publication, in its May 2004 issue states that "Awliyas order us to associate partners in worship of Allah, besides Him." This is blasphemous because Awliyas exhorted people to obey Allah and His Messenger and to seek help from none but Allah only.

Allah refers to them in the holy Quran saying ' The friends of Allah are those on whom fear cometh not, nor do they grieve.' A well known Hadith ascribing to Allah the words, 'One who is hostile to my wali, receives an announcement of war from me', also refers in this context.

So it is high time, we looked into the lives and teachings of great saints to know how they justify Allah's words and are honoured ' Raziallahoo Anhoo'. This is the need of the hour.
