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 iiasa.org 

Islamic Affairs Department of The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia iad.org 

About "Jihad" alhewar.com 

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 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?
