I am sorry I don't like to argue and not interested in any philosophical ideas and opinions. As a new Muslim I rely on Divine Scriptures. If any do not rely on Holy Scriptures they cannot claim to be Muslim or Christian. Commandments of Allah-Creator-GOD are the final 'Word', the final instruction Manual that no mankind can change it.
Surely one can obey or disobey, but then cannot claim to be the Believer, or use the fake ID of a Muslim or a Christian.
A very honest Rev. Dr. Meredith (tomorrowsworld.org) preaching true original Christianity has written a book called "Satan's counterfeit Christianity". If one is not aware of his knowledge of Scriptures one might get angry.
The same way we describe the fake religion in the name of Islam: 'Satan's counterfeit Islam' for the simple reason that Islam is rejected, replaced it by the Cultic practices using the fake ID of Islam for the Cult.
I was involved in a cult that has no belief of Allah the Creator, or the belief of the Divine Scripture Quran. No Islamic rules of right and wrong or halal and haram. They have only 'surface' belief of moderation, pluralism and freedom. Nothing to do with Divine Scriptures and its Law. Yet using the fake ID of Islam and Shia Muslim.
After conversion to Islam, I read the Quran that introduced me the past Scriptures; Bible, Torah etc. And the followers known as people of the Book. Plus introduced all the great prophets and Messengers that included Prophet Moses (AS) Messiah Jesus (AS), Prophet Israel-Jacob (AS) and came to know the reality of the 'Forbidden Tree' and the whisper of Satan-evil in the ear of P. H. Adam (AS) and his wife H. Eve-Hawa (RA).
Can anyone imagine how dangerous is it to conceal Islam, which means concealing all of the above details that should be the part of our halal and spiritual lives?
Therefore, we all should believe: "to be a Muslim is to follow the Divine Manual and not our own evil whims and desires".
Anything is labeled Haram one has no right to change it to: 'Moderation' in the name of false pluralism, freedom and democracy.
This is the end of arguments. As I don't want to annoy the non-Muslims who love their Haram drinks and food etc.
