(Is the Quran influencing our character today or not? If yes, how? If not, why not?)

PLEASE EXCUSE THE BLOCK LETTERS BY SHANGRILA AND HUSBAND HASHIM.

I have an extremely important question for all and myself. (Finally, it will turn out to be a question for the Quran.)

GOOD IDEA.

Most viewers of this forum see themselves as Quran-oriented (Qurani-centric) Muslims.

YES.

THE QUESTION: In our daily lives, are we better than the N2I or the Hadithi Muslims or not?

HADHITHIS AT LEAST FOLLOW SOME GOOD AHADITH. WE FOLLOW NOTHING.
SIR, WE ARE WORSE.

In order to make the answer easy, let me put down a few criteria.

IT WAS IMPORTANT.

Are we as selfish?

EQUALLY.

Do we speak the truth?

NO!

Do we lie as much as others do?

YES!

Do we make false excuses?

YES!

Do we deceive people with words?

JUST LIKE OTHERS.

Do we deceive them with actions?

YES!

Do we respond to phone calls, emails and letters that the other person considers important?

EASILY IGNORE WHEN NOT IN MOOD. WE READ THE CALLER ID FIRST.

Do we keep our promises?

NO, ONLY IF IT WILL BENEFIT US!

Do others see us as trustworthy?

UNFORTUNATELY, THEY THINK SO.

Are we more generous or more stingy and greedy?

MORE STINGY. N2Is AT LEAST DONATE TO LANGAR & MASJID.

Do we convey the Message to others?

NO, IT COSTS TIME & MONEY.

Do we practically believe that we are accountable for our actions in this life and the Hereafter?

ONLY IN OUR SUBCONSCIOUS.

Does the belief in the Law of Recompense influence our actions?

NO, NO, NO, NOT AT ALL!

Do you think the Quran-oriented Muslims are more reliable than others?

NO!

Do we have a better moral character?

NOT AT ALL!

BUT, THANKS TO YOU FOR THE QUESTIONS MAKING US FOCUS, WE WILL START TRYING TODAY.
