Fighting Islam or Finding Islam?


"How about I reading books about your religion, and you reading about Islam?"
"No way. You should forget everything about Islam, then come to study my religion."

The conversation between my friend who trying to preach Islam to other religion follower. That's what have been claimed by him.. Religion study can be studied for few century history, where we can read about religion comparison at The Big Religion Chart (However I should warning that this chart is not detailed in explaining Islam, especially they put moon and star as symbol of Islam.. Islam is not religion of praying moon.)


Islam is the most criticized religion by disbelievers in Malaysia. They tend to believe Islam is ancient religion that love to limit one's freedom. That's why there are liberal preaching which trying to absorb in young muslim's mind. Telling them how should they get away from limitation from tradition or religion syariah, just enjoy the world without care about right or wrong.

What's wrong to be free hair? Every local artist does that, it looks so fashion!
Why can't I staying with my girlfriend and drinking a little, just a little bit beer? Come on man... I am studying at US university now, my friends would look down on me if I am not doing so. 

Katakanlah: “Sesungguhnya Tuhanku hanya mengharamkan perbuatan-perbuatan yang keji, sama ada yang nyata atau yang tersembunyi; dan perbuatan dosa; dan perbuatan menceroboh dengan tidak ada alasan yang benar; dan (diharamkanNya) kamu mempersekutukan sesuatu dengan Allah sedang Allah tidak menurunkan sebarang bukti (yang membenarkannya); dan (diharamkanNya) kamu memperkatakan terhadap Allah sesuatu yang kamu tidak mengetahuinya.

(Al-A'raf : 33)

Why Beer is forbidden? For sure most of us already realize it through newspaper medical part and magazine that beer doesn't bring any advantage on our health. Then why many people still consume beer? It doesn't tasty at all and hard to swallow.. The reason would be want to forget every problem in life, or just want to relax their mind. Let body and mind twisting around..

Who is the one going to be suffer? Still the drinker themselves. 
God doesn't forbidden anything that's good for His mankind, also the same goes to anything that is harmful. Only Allah SWT know the best with His creations. 

Islam being criticized as Ideology from Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. , well they should read this short history about how Prophet being warned by God don't forbid something that is good for mankind.

Suatu hari ketika Rasulullah menemui Hafshah Binti Umar, dia bertanya, “Ya Rasulullah, mengapa mulutmu berbau busuk?”
“Aku baru saja minum madu, bukan maghafir,” jawab Nabi Muhammad SAW

“Kalau begitu, engkau minum madu yang sudah lama,” kata Hafshah.
Kehairanan Rasulullah makin bertambah ketika Aisyah yang ditemuinya mengatakan halyang serupa. Akhirnya, Rasulullah mengharamkan madu buat dirinya untuk beberapa waktu.

Kemudian Ayat At-Tahrim : 1 diturunkan oleh Allah SWT untuk menegur sikap Nabi :

"Wahai Nabi! Mengapa engkau haramkan (dengan bersumpah menyekat dirimu daripada menikmati) apa yang dihalalkan oleh Allah bagimu, (kerana) engkau hendak mencari keredaan isteri-isterimu? (Dalam pada itu, Allah ampunkan kesilapanmu itu) dan Allah sememangnya Maha Pengampun, lagi Maha Mengasihani."


As statement above stated, as muslim we obey to every Sunnatullah (Peraturan atau syariat Allah yang berlaku di bumi tempat tinggal sementara manusia ini)

Islam is not brainwashing idelogy. 
The proof is there are a lot of disbeliever who trying to challenge the purity of Islam from time to time, most of them are Ahli Kitab who studied a lot. Logically their faith with god is definitely no doubt, they have strong will to prove Islam is a wrong religion so they bring along Kitab as for debate with Muslim.

Some of them, not everyone.. Have been embrace Islam. They are the truth seekers, how can it be happen if they found lies in Islam? It only happened if they found unbeatable truth in Islam. 

These case reminds me Dr. Gary Miller.
He was the one who most against Islam. In faith of his religion, he decided to study Islam so he can pull Muslim towards Christian. 

"Semuanya bermula sebaik saya menerima hadiah senaskah al-Quran pada 1978. Niat awalnya saya mengkaji dan ingin membaca al-Quran untuk menarik orang Islam masuk ke agama Kristian.

"Sebenarnya, saya mahu mencari kesalahan dalam al-Quran, agar dengan cara itu senang untuk saya menggoyahkan akidah umat Islam.

"Anggapan awal saya, kitab al-Quran adalah sebuah kitab kuno dan mengandungi cerita tentang padang pasir sahaja. Akhirnya, setelah mendalami satu demi satu helaian al-Quran, apa yang ditemui saya sendiri tidak pernah menjangkakannya," akui Dr. Miller.

Beliau akhirnya menyedari dan mengakui kebenaran al-Quran.


Alhamdulillah... He embrace Islam after realized what Islam about, and he even published a book named as The Amazing Quran. (Download his Ebook Here) As a professional in his field, the "brainwash" term can't be used on him. Because he is the one who striving hard in Fighting Islam, but without realize actually he is Finding Islam. 

Islam pushing away all kind of blind belief. 
That's why Prophet Ibrahim dare to destroy every Idol in temple and telling those followers : You want to know who did this? Why don't you ask the god who sitting right there? (Pointing at the largest Idol that was not destroyed)

Those disbeliever who still claimed Islam is "not logical", that is just because they influenced by largest western media.. Building enemy inside their heart not in reality. Just like how NewsWeek teaching western citizen how they should look at Muslim that don't even have the same military weapon to fight with them.

The Jihadi Highschool - Newsweek 
Full article Click Here

When school let out last June, the boy jumped at the invitation and spent much of the summer at an insurgent training camp in Afghanistan. He had just finished 10th grade. His father, a former schoolteacher from Kabul, struggles to feed the family on no more than $100 a month, doing backbreaking work at a brick kiln near Peshawar. He’s determined to give his son a better life. But the boy has other ideas. As soon as this school year ends, he’s planning to head back to Afghanistan to complete his training for the war against the Americans. “My parents only live to survive,” the boy says. “My aim is to live honorably in the eyes of God—and that means jihad.

As we can see how Media design a spectacular in judging Islam as terrorist, but they never think about American already have the strongest Military Weapon... Why other country want to fight with them for no reason? Sort of like "The myth of Mass Destruction Weapon" fairytale at Iraq. 

As my conclusion in this article, I would like to quote one chapter from the book The Amazing Quran written by Dr. Gary Miller. Assalamualaikum wbt.


Falsification Test

I suggest to you that the next time you get into dispute with someone about Islam and he claims that he has the truth and that you are in darkness, you leave all other arguments at first and make this suggestion. Ask him, “Is there any falsification test in your religion? Is there anything in your religion that would prove you are wrong if I could prove to you that it exists - anything?” Well, I can promise right now that people will not have anything - no test, no proof, nothing! This is because they do not carry around the idea that they should not only present what they believe but should also offer others a chance to prove they’re wrong. However, Islam does that.

A perfect example of how Islam provides man with a chance to verify it authenticity and “prove it wrong” occurs in the 4th chapter. And quiet honestly, I was very surprised when I first discovered this challenge. It states (Surah An-Nisa, 4:82)

“Do they not consider the Quran? Had it been from any other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy.”

This is a clear challenge to the non-Muslim. Basically, it invites him to find a mistake. As a matter of fact, the seriousness and difficulty of the challenge aside, the actual presentation of such a challenge in the first place is not even in human nature and is inconsistent with man’s personality. One doesn’t take an exam in school and after finishing the exam, write a note to the instructor at the end saying, “This exam is perfect. There are no mistakes in it. Find one if you can!” One just doesn’t do that. The teacher would not sleep until he found a mistake! And yet this is the way the Quran approaches people.

    A very nice article, this is among the article that i love to read and ponder on. Thank you for the sharing. Once upon a time, i hate islam myself too. To the extend i felt that i want to kick those people who talk about Allah or religious matter to me, hehehe. Alhamdulillah, He is all Merciful and guides me back to Him although I was evil to Him.

    This is not only the problem of the disbelievers, but also the problem of many 'muslims.' I mean muslims born in muslim family ourselves. We feel shy that religious knowledge bring us nowhere and never help us in this life, so somehow it is looked down by many.

    Wishing your wife's grandma well-being and Allah's blessings on everyone, insyaAllah.

    Alhamdulilah grand ma is succeed her operation which is a miracle for everyone too, It's kind of dangerous in doing operation for aged woman.

    Sincerely, I was the chinese boy who most hate Islam. Among my friend perhaps I was the most "extreme" in labeling muslim with all kinds of insulting tags.However in the Might of God, I back to Islam and decided to declare what Islam really about.

    There are misunderstood in Malaysia that only Malay belong to Islam, that's not true because everyone was born to find God, no matter born in Muslim or Non Muslim family. No different at all at the very first moment we come to this world.

    Islam memuliakan pengaji agama daripada Nabi sebelumnya dengan gelaran "Ahli Kitab", tetapi pada zaman sekarang ahli kitab telah tidak wujud, Kitab telah banyak diubahsuaikan untuk tujuan tertentu dan keuntungan dunia.

    Adalah tidak mungkin Kalimah Allah yang telah diputarbelitkan cuba dibetulkan balik, padahal Allah SWT Maha Mengetahui.
