ummtaalib Posted August 13, 2014 Report Share Posted August 13, 2014 The world is home to many religions. Some religions are very scarce whereas others are quite large. One of these religions is the religion of Islam. The religion of Islam, which was introduced to the world in the time of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), is followed by millions of people around the world. The followers of Islam are known as Muslims. The religion of Islam also has a special book which contains guidelines for Muslims which explain how they should live their lives, how they should behave and what they should do in their lives. This book is known as the Holy Quran, which is one of the four Holy Books that were sent down to the Earth by Allah himself. Three of these books have been tampered with whereas the Holy Quran remains the sole Holy Book that hasn’t been tampered with over the years and remains in the same language which it was revealed in. 5 common misconceptions about religion of IslamApart from being one of the largest religions in the world, Islam is also a religion that is very commonly misperceived by the people of this planet. Well, here are the 5 most common misconceptions about religion of Islam: 1. Islam is a religion that teaches violence Many people throughout this world think that Islam is a religion that teaches and promotes violence. This is one of the most common misconceptions about religion of Islam because that is certainly not the case. Islam promotes generosity and kindness and also advises the Muslim Ummah to behave well with others. Islam is a religion that promotes the purity of heart and is a religion that advises Muslims to make sure that their conduct does not hurt any of the people in their surroundings. 2. Islam teaches Muslims to kill non-MuslimsThere are many people who believe that Islam teaches Muslims to kill non-Muslims. However, it is quite the opposite. Islam teaches Muslims to make sure that they are kind and generous to everyone, including non-Muslims. Both Muslims and non-Muslims are creations of Allah and Allah has asked the Muslim Ummah to make sure that they do not hurt any of his creations. 3. Islam promotes the killing of women over honorIslam does not at all promote the killing of women, whether it is for honor or anything else. In addition, Islam teaches Muslim men to treat their women like queens. 4. Children have no rightsThe Quran teaches Muslims to make sure that they take care of the rights of children. The significance of a Muslim child is equal to that of a Muslim man and so are his or her rights. 5. Muslims become barbarians while at warThis is one of the many misconceptions about religion of Islam. Islam teaches Muslims to make sure that they stay on the right path while at war and do not become barbarians. Islam teaches Muslims to make sure that during war, they do not kill aged people, children, righteous people, women, do not commit treachery, do not mutilate dead bodies, do not harm animals (unless they need to do so for food), and do not harm tress or buildings. idealmuslim.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
