ISLAM

If we could get arrested for being a Muslim, would the police have enough
evidence to bring us in?
Why is it so hard to tell the truth but yet so easy to tell a lie?
Why are we so sleepy in mosque but right when the prayer is over we suddenly
wake up?
Why is it so hard to talk about God but yet so easy to talk about the latest
releases, and what the score was..(sports)?
Why is it so boring to look at a Islamic Article but yet so easy to look at
pictures of Jennifer Lopez?
Why is it so easy to delete a Godly e-mail but yet we forward all of the
humorous one?
Why are the mosque's getting smaller but yet the and dance clubs are getting
larger?

Think about it ....
Are you going to forward this
OR
delete it
Just remember-God is watching you.
Prayer Wheel
Here's what the wheel is all
about. When you receive this, say a prayer for the person that sent it to
you....
There are no COSTS, but wonderful REWARDS-Let's continue praying for one
another.
Messenger(P.B.U.H) prophesized these incidents 1400 years ago!!!

Now this is scary!!!!
* Camels will no longer be used as a means of transport;
* People will ride on saddles that aren't saddles (cars?)
* The distance on earth will become short;
* Horses will not be used in wars;
* Muslims will defeat the Byzantine which will end with the conquest of
Constantinople(Istanbul);
* The Jews will gather again to live in Bilad Canaan;
* Very tall buildings will be built;
* The disappearance of knowledge and the appearance of ignorance, with much
killing;
* Adultery will become widespread, and the drinking of wine will become
common;
* The number of men will decrease and the number of women will increase
until there are 50 women to be looked after by one man.
* Islam will become worn out like clothes are, until no one will know what
fasting, prayer, charity and rituals are;
* Allah will send a disease to fornicators that will have no cure (Aids?);
* People will begin to believe in the stars and reject AL QADAR (THE DIVINE
DECREE OF DESTINY);
* Men will pass by people's graves and say: "Would that I were in his
place"; (large amount of suicidal deaths?)
* The Euphrates will uncover a mountain of gold for which people will fight
over (the river of Alfurat that lies near Syria);
* Two large groups of people will fight one another, and there will be many
casualties; they will both be following the same religion (World War II?);
* Approximately 30 DAJJALS will appear, each one claiming to be the
messenger of ALLAH;
* Earthquakes will increase;
* Time will pass quickly;
* Afflictions will appear;
* Killing will increase;
* Wealth will increase;
* Women will be wearing clothes but not wearing clothes
* THE PROPHET (saw) SAID: "IF MY UMMAH BEARS 15 TRAITS
(QUALITIES),TRIBULATION WILL FOLLOW IT." (DAY OF JUDGEMENT) SOMEONE
ASKED,"WHAT ARE THEY O MESSENGER OF ALLAH?" HE (saw) SAID:
* When a trust becomes a means of making profit;
* When paying ZAKKAT becomes a burden;
* When voices are raised in the mosque;
* When the leader of a people is the worst of them; When people treat a man
with respect because they that he may do;
* When much wine is drunk; red wind or the earth swallow them, or to be
transformed into animals."

THE GREATER SIGNS OF THE HOUR

¤The Quran will disappear in one night, even from the people's hearts, and
no Ayyah will be left on earth.
¤(Some groups of old people will be left who will say: "We heard of athers'
saying "LAILLAHA ILLA ALLAH" so we repeat it)
¤ The appearance of the MAHDI;
¤ The appearance of the DAJJAL (Anti Christ);
¤ The appearance of Ya'juj and Ma'juj (biblical Gog and Magog);
¤ Isa (Jesus) will come during the time of Dajjal;
¤ The rising of the sun from the west;
¤ The destruction of the Ka'ba and the recovery of its treasures

Facts about Islam are usually, notably, not factual.

__________________

Yeah and Christians have their lists too.... And it all boils down to is Christianity and Islam are religionsthat have the belief they are right and everyone else is wrong. Which is a load of hooey for lack of the word I would like to use....

It gets tiresome to have endless ayats and lists and links... If people want to find out about a religion they don't need to be told they are lost. I certainly ran the other way from any religion that had a proselytizing element to it, or a core belief that they were right and everyone else was headed to hell and I needed to be saved with their truth.

I know its hard to understand but there are many many people in the world who have a religious practice and they love their religion like you love yours......

Paradise looking,

I find most list like this from any religion to be false or just stretching the interpretation a little bit too much. Please give links to an online Quran or to an Imam's site that says all of these things.

Actually the entire thing is just cut and pasted from web sites.

Most folks here tend to be respectful of others beliefs. It seems to be the Muslims and fundamentalist Christians who don't respect others right to their beliefs and keep proselytizing.

I for one don't tell folks their religion is wrong. Everyone has their way to God. Some have chosen no faith, its their choice. We find in life what we need including faith.

Muslims are not being attacked its the constant barrage of videos, pictures, ayats, the attack of Jews in sneaky little ways, unending cutting and pasting long lists.

If people want to learn about Islam this forum is not the place. They will go to a library, there are lots of ways to get information.

I don't care if you are Muslim, I do care about the constant barrage of information, which is often meaningless, and biased.

Unfortunately that's half the problem people pick up a book and read it without wanting to learn about what its saying. Imams who have studied and have scholarship who understand Islam are a good source and the Imams I know in my area, and I know 2 would be a good source as they know their religion. They are moderate Muslims who work with the local community in interfaith.

There is more to the Quran and the Bible, there is a history of when it was written, the group of people it was speaking to, and why. Much that is in the Quran answers question of the early Muslims. It speaks to the problems they had. It needs to be understood in the context of what it was written for.

Misunderstandings come from just picking it up and reading it without understanding what it means.
