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

Here are specific articles viewing Islam from a positive point

The Institute of Islamic and Arabic Sciences in America

Islamic Affairs Department of The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia

About "Jihad"

A rather more positive interpretation/translation of Koran

Human Rights in Islam

A positive spin on Islam's treatment of Women

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


The following links concentrate on negative sides of Islam:

Women: An inferior breed:

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

A review of Islam: Mohammed and Mohammedanism

The Koran and the non-believers

Reference Sources:

The Koran:


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

Free Muslim thinkers:

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 well documented with proofs and valid resources, and absolutely objective (in my humble view of course), well written piece 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?
