Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, people are becoming more knowledgeable about Islam and asking more questions about it. The terrorist’s crime has piqued people’s interest in learning more about Islam and how Moslems behave. Outsiders have the most questions about Islam, and they all revolve around the fundamentals of Islam, which force people to live in accordance with that system. Click to view the page.
The first is whether or not Moslems are terrorists and extremists, and whether or not Islam is a violent religion. It is not accurate, because terrorism is carried out by a small number of people who use Islam as a scapegoat for their crimes. Islam is a religion of peace, and it forbids people from killing each other unless they are defending themselves against criminals or those who seek to destroy the religion.
The first of the many doubts that people outside of Islam have about Islam leads to the second, which is whether Islam was propagated by the sword and was intolerant of other faiths. Islam is based on peace, and the Quran even states that Islam honours other religions by saying, “my religion is mine, and your religion is yours,” implying that Islam will not interfere with others having their own religion as long as it does not pose a threat to Islam.
The second item on the list of most frequently asked questions about Islam by non-Muslims is whether Islam is indeed a religion that oppresses women. It is not true because Islam considers women to have the same rights as males, allowing them to keep their own family name even after marriage and choosing their own husbands.
The second question on the list of most often asked questions about Islam by non-Muslims is if Islam worships different gods, which is false because Allah is the single God for Moslems. The fifth question on the list of the most often asked questions about Islam by non-Muslims is whether all Muslims are Arabs.
