Thanks, Br. Mubashir. Please do not worry about the insults Br. Sidqi is throwing at me. With the Grace of God Almighty I have reached the stage where such things do not hurt me at all. As a matter of fact I no longer get angry. Rather than let the anger kill me I killed the anger itself. Moreover, it is an honor to be called an atheist or kafir (infidel). Look who benefited the humanity most in the past few centuries? Those who made the beneficial discoveries and inventions were either atheists or kafirs. And not all atheists deny the existence of a Creator. They just do not accept manmade gods. I too refuse to bow to manmade gods.
This is for Br. Sidqi only. I AM NEITHER MULLAH NOR COMMY. I am just a humble human. I study the Quran with understanding and try my best to follow the Commandments. I treat everyone with respect and wish the best for all. I dream of a day when whole world will be free of wars, hatreds, crimes, diseases, and poverty; and all inhabitants will enjoy peace, security, and prosperity.
You just admitted Russia and China have taken and enforced the Commandments listed in verse 2:177. Let me add USA and Western European countries to this list. They all have adopted many ideas from socialism and the Quran. These countries are enjoying prosperity while many so-called Islamic countries are sinking in poverty. Did God send down the Quran for non Muslims? Are Muslims forbidden to follow God’s Commandments?
Last, I am presenting only the Truth that I found in the Quran. You are free to follow whatever you want. I have no intention of forcing my opinion or ideas on anyone. If you enjoy performing Namaz and observing Roza and feel peace and happiness, please continue with your rituals. However, I stand by my conviction that Namaz is not Salat and Roza is not Soam. If you are so sure Salat is Namaz, please just show me the procedure of performing the Namaz from the Quran. Then, I will start performing the Namaz accordingly. Prayer is a different issue. I pray all the time and my prayer is always in Urdu. I do it while sitting, walking, driving, or laying in bed.
