The beauties of Islam
Religions .. philosophies .. thoughts .. gods to die, other gods to live! And others divided into three parts! Wichelemietzsche pragmatism, Platonic idealism, capitalist economy, communism, ideal spiritual mysticism, and instinctual animal epicureanism.Between all of these man stands alone, almost killed by confusion, accumulated darkness, and growing spiritual thirst!It is only Islam, the last divine message to the people, that is able to remove this confusion and quench this spiritual thirst.
Back to the natural disposition
No matter how accumulated the clouds of suspicions to prevent the truth light from reaching the insights, the fact that this universe has a creator will remain firm and undeniable in the hearts. It is a fact uttered by every atom of the universe and every human emotion that is deeply rooted in his heart.

It is a matter that no one may disclaim.Here we tell you about that fact and reflect with you on its evidence around us.
How did the Sunnah reach us?

The Honoring Of Prophets
The wise do not differ that if God choose a human being to be his Messenger to his slaves then this is an irrefutable proof of the honor of that chosen person and his high rank. The divine books confirmed that fact and illustrated it, but the distortion extended to the Heavenly books revealed before the Quran, it deformed this shinning picture of the Messengers of God and accused them of what they are innocent of.In this clip, we are to compare between what the Holy Quran told about a group of prophets, and what was told by them about what is known as the Old and New Testament
Misconceptions about Islam -Why does Islam allow a Man to have more than one wife?
Polygamy means a system of marriage whereby one person has more than one spouse. Polygamy can be of two types. One is polygamy where a man marries more than one woman, and the other is polyandry, where a woman marries more than one man. In Islam, limited polygamy is permitted; whereas polyandry is completely prohibited.The Qur’an is the only religious book, on the face of this earth, that contains the phrase ‘marry only one’. There is no other religious book that instructs men to have only one wife.The context of this phrase is the following verse from Surah Nisa of the Glorious Qur’an:"Marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one."(Al-Qur’an 4:3)
Misconceptions about Islam - Islam was spread by the sword
This is a very common misconception and the truth is that Islam is against war. History shows that they will only embark on war if attacked and will only attack if the enemy is constantly harming their nation.The best reply to the misconception that Islam was spread by the sword is given by the noted historian De Lacy O’Leary in the book “Islam at the cross road” (Page 8): “History makes it clear however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myth that historians have ever repeated.”
Misconceptions about Islam - Muslims are terrorists
Islam prohibits all forms of terrorism, sabotage, and destruction, and demands the heaviest punishment on those who commit such vicious acts. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the vast majority have nothing to do with the violent events some have associated with Muslims. If an individual Muslim were to commit an act of terrorism, this person would be guilty of violating the laws of Islam.
Misconceptions about Islam - Muslims are Fundamentalists
This question is often hurled at Muslims, either directly or indirectly, during any discussion on religion or world affairs. Muslim stereotypes are perpetuated in every form of the media accompanied by gross misinformation about Islam and Muslims. Islam is derived from the word ‘salaam’ which means peace. It is a religion of peace whose fundamentals teach its followers to maintain and promote peace throughout the world. Thus every Muslim should be a fundamentalist i.e. he should follow the fundamentals of the Religion of Peace: Islam. He should be a terrorist only towards the antisocial elements in order to promote peace and justice in the society.
Misconceptions about Islam - Jihad
There is no matter if you are a Muslims or non Muslims you must be familiar with the term Jihad because its a hot topic on International media since from last one and a half decades.Jihad in Arabic does not mean “holy war.” It means “to strive, to apply oneself, to struggle, to persevere.” Jihad can be personal or it can be a community of persons struggling against oppression. In essence, it means to become closer to God in lifestyle and community. Jihad does not means killing any person or any non Muslim. but today International media is showing Jihad as killing innocent people. we often hear such words Jihadi terror, Islamic terrorism on media which as completely wrong terms. Jihad never means killing an innocent person. Islam never allows killing an innocent person.
