Religion is a form of mental bondage which manifests itself in the performance of certain customs and rituals by the masses. These customs and rituals are ordained by the elites of society. Religion is used as a source of power and income, by the kings or the clergy, who pursue worldly ends with forged documents attributed to divine inspiration.
Islam, Judaism and Christianity, in their original form consisted of a way of life, based on sets of divine commandments.
The kings and the clergy changed the way of life and contaminated with different rituals and social customs, changing true Islam into different religions and sects.
