Question: If we are nonbelievers, who will put us on the path we must follow to righteousness? Will it be god or the threat of terrorism? –Last Chance Saloon
Answer: It would be god, not terrorism. Terrorism doesn’t change hearts, we don’t want people to be Muslims because they forced to be Muslims, we need Muslims who loves Islam and benefit him, and I will tell you something about Jihad.
Jihad is broad word in Islam, you can do Jihad by being good student trying to get better, you can do Jihad by doing better job at you work but, you do Jihad when you fast In Ramadan because you force your self to ignore the temptation around you, so Jihad is doing any thing in good way for the sake of god, but Terrorist kidnap this word and makes it look like it’s for killing.
Even god told our prophet in Quran, “If you were tough with your people they would leave you”, so our prophet was inviting people by his words, he never oppressed somebody to believe.
What would you do to Islam, if you become Muslim because you are afraid, you would do nothing, and you would hurt Islam way more than you do if you are not Muslim?
These terrorist got it wrong, and I think they betray Islam, and they do so much harm to Islam, my own belief that Usama Bin Laden is an American character; they made him to justify what ever they want to do in the world. Look at what Usama Bin Laden doing, he helps him every time Bush get in trouble with the American people, he comes out and threaten the American people, so his friend Bush keep doing what he wants, it really saddens me to see that happening, I wish if the world stop fighting and killing people.
God gives you mind to think about, to see the signs of his existence , to think hard and try to find the truth, on the other hand this choice accompanied with devil try to take you to the other direction, but at the end you have the choice, not the devil.
