47:38 Indeed, you are those who are called upon to spend in the Cause of God. Yet, among you there are such who turn stingy. Anyone who is miser is miser against his own ‘self’. And God is the Rich, and you are the poor. And if you turn away, He will replace you with another nation, and they will not be like you.
When the ‘Muslims’ stopped following the Quran and replaced it with Sunnah and hadith, they were replaced by those you describe in your post. Instead of the best of people, an example for others to follow, they are good only for ridicule and condemnation.
Whenever a Muslim gets up in front of an audience and defends Islam, obscene, degrading, contradictory or unscientific beliefs are brought up to show what lies behind “Islam means peace”; all based on hadith that are believed to be ‘sahih!
We Muslims are our own worst enemies; we do not need the Danish cartoons or the Dutch ‘Fitna the Movie’ to put us down, we do it all to our own self!
