Return to Understanding Islam
 
This forum is about trying to understand Islam.


Here are specific articles viewing Islam from a positive point

A rather more positive interpretation/translation of Koran
submission.org

Human Rights in Islam
islam101.com

islam101.com

A positive spin on Islam's treatment of Women
islam101.com

And Here is a powerful argument that Islam treats women well, actually better than Judaism and Christianity:

twf.org


submission.org

==========================================

The following links concentrate on negative sides of Islam:

Women: An inferior breed: members.aol.com

"Jihad in America" a link for the 1 hr PBS documentary, made in 1995 after the World Trade Center #1 terrorist attack ou.org

A review of Islam: Mohammed and Mohammedanism
newadvent.org

The Koran and the non-believers
hindutva.org

Reference Sources:

The Koran: newadvent.org

===============================================

And The following 2 articles can be viewed somewhere in between postive and negative sides of Islam:

Free Muslim thinkers:
isisforum.com

isisforum.com


There is also a book titled Why I am Not a Muslim written by IBN Warraq (himself a former Muslim). Eventhough the title of the book may suggest otherwise, it is a well documented with proofs and valid resources, well written pieice of work that I suggest everyone to read.

===================================

And here is a link to a rather very interesting post done by one of SI's members:

Message 16631237


So the question is:

Is it Islam that is evil, or those who just like to call themselves Muslims, and are giving the ideology a bad name, evil?
