Let me start by saying that I respect people's views, so long as they are supported by fact and evidence. I am not sure how much you know about Islam or about how Iranians became Muslim, but from your post, it appears that you know very little, and all of your information has come from religious teachings, and not from any independent or objective study.
I will go through you post in its entirety, and I hope that I get a response from you, hopefully after you look into the issues a bit more. So here it is...
I am muslim and proud of it yet i also love the other great profits and their religions ( Abraham, Moses, Zartosht, Jesus, etc.) I am actually going to become a sufi muslim.
Fair enough, so far.
There is nothing wrong with islam, infact it's almost exactly the same as the big religions because we all believe in the same thing, GOD.
With this regard, I strongly urge you to read the Quran in a langauge that you understand, and read it a true translation where words have not been changed, or verses left out. In the meantime, I suggest that you go to the following link, a section in this forum, that discusses Quranic laws, and ask yourself if you were aware of these rules, and if you agree or accept them. The section is pretty new and will have more subjects. http://forum.bia2.co...?showtopic=3150
I can tell you without hesitation, that the Quran has many inhumane rules. Most of the humane rules have to do with those who are believers, and all non-believers will burn in hell, and many other attrotious acts will become upon themin this life. I hope that you visit that link once in a while, and I strongly urge you to look up those verses and understand that is what the Quran requires.
So in short, I strongly believe that there is a lot wrong with Islam, b/c there are many inhumane and attortious rules in the Quran, which is the basis of Islam.
But lately some muslims are doing EXTREMELY SINFUL things in the world, but that dosen't mean that ALL muslims are bad, or that Mohhammad is bad, or that islam is a bad religion. Islam is not a bad religion, nor is any other religion that believes in GOD the right way.
Again, you must look to the source of a religion. With regard to Islam, it is the Quran. This book requires the cutting off of hands and feet in opposite directions or from behind, killing the non-beleivers, not being friends with those who are not Muslim, burning in hell those who do not believe in Islam, giving 1/2 of the value of men to women, and on and on and on...
In fact, contrary to what you say, those who call themselves Muslim can be very good people b/c they do not follow or accept these rules; but the religion itself, in toto is not peaceful or forigiving or constructive at all.
So if some people from a religion do something bad does that mean that I have to hate that religion and all who follow it? NO not at all, Ex. Look at the KKK and Hitlor, they did extremely bad and sinful things, does that mean I have to hate ALL Christians? NO. Does that mean i have to hate Jesus? No, I will NEVER hate Jesus. Look at when some of the Zorastorians killed the prophet Mani. Does that mean i have to hate All the Zorastorians and Zartosht? NO, i would Never hate Zartosht or Zorastorians. And remember, it wasnt omar koshun who brought Islam, it was Mohhammad.
Not much comment here. But I reiterate that with Islam, it is the text of the Quran that REQUIRES the acts that you today say should not be done. If the Quran requires it and the people follow it, then the fault originates with the Quran, the basis of Islam.
I don't think Mohhammad liked what omar did, at all. Infact, during that time, Mohhammad came peacefully to our great empire and talked to our kings and people, peacefully, and also attended some persian festivals (NOROOZ).
This is the most outrageous thing I have ever heard. Mohammad died before the Arab invasion of Iran and never got to Iran himself. This is why I say that you have received all of your information from religious schools that refabricate history. In fact, in the Quran, which Mohammad wrote, he says do not be friends with Christians or Jews. He says that non-believers must pay wages if they do not want to convert to Islam. He says that those who are against Islam, we will never accept this of them. He says that the non-believers should be killed. How can he be peaceful?
Again, he never made it to Iran. In fact, they called our forefathers Atash Parast, and had very low regard for them. I really think that you should learn more about history before makin such comments.
So did some of the Emams also, like Emam Ali who's son, Emam Housain married a persian princess and who loved each other very much ( that is why the majority of Iran is Shia).
For your information, either Hussein or Hassan said that Iranian men are not worth anything more than slaves, and their women more than maids. Iranian women, after the Arab invasion of Islam were raped and became maids and slaves. If one of Ali's wives was Persian, I assure you it was not by choice, but a demand of Ali. In Islam, women have very low regard and must do what the men say. In the Quran it says that Men, you Women are your property, and their place is inthe house, and you made enter them as you wish. Again, your information are from Mullas. Please reconsider your stance after your ead more history.
Our King gracussly and kindly siad no, and they went away, During that time though, some villigars in Persia did become moslem, but not the majority at that time.
Read the letter from Omar to Yadigerd and his response to see if the Arabs "graciously" went away. http://www.bozorgbaz...m/yazdgird.html
There were wars for decades and there were many uprisings. Refer to this other topic at this forum. http://forum.bia2.co...?showtopic=3155
How was this gracious. There was no choice. The demand was to either convert or die. Go look to Abu Goraiza on google, and see how many people Ali killed b/c that tribe did not want to convert to Islam. In Yazd, they cut off the heads of Zoroastrians who did not convert to Islam, and forced them to do so.
Please, look these up. And please, do not rely on Mullas to give you accurate information.
I LOVE my persian past and LOVE my calture, but that doesn't mean that we all should be one big religion in one country, like the stupid islamic republic wants, and that doesnt mean that I should reject islam.
True. But you also should not be such a strong supporter of Islam and make statements about it that are not true, when you yourself do not have much knowledge on the subject, as your post appears. You are free to be whatever releigion you want, but you have to realize that Iranians are "Mulsim" today b/c they were forced and their heads chopped off if they did not want to convert. Today, if someone wants to change their religion, the IRI is following QURANIC RULES that one who converts "will NEVER be accepted of them" and their "destiny is doom". That is what the Quran says. Look at this topic about what the QURAN (which the IRI is following) requires. The IRI is in fact just following Quranic rules: http://forum.bia2.co...?showtopic=2967
Every religion was made for ANYBODY, not just a specific group. Really, The Prophets did not come to make their own religion, they came to give the teachings of GOD, meaning we should have all been really ONE BIG RELIGION, the religion of GOD. It was the peoples fault however that siad we should follow this prophet or this prophet.
I hope you understood what i siad and i hope that everyone will understand in the future.
I don't really have much comment here b/c it will be repetative of the above. But I really do hope that you study your history and religion more and understand more about it. This is b/c I beleive you are blindly following and defending Islam without having a true understanding of it.
Ba Sepaas! I hope that my post helps your understanding of Islam, and a rebuttal to your statements
