Islam is the most misunderstood religion in the world. That is why even 'Muslims' are not able to abide by it.
Islam : total surrender to Allah is all that it demands of us. Put all your burden upon Allah and do good deeds and try to explain and advise others when they stray away. Be united, love each other and love the whole of mankind, respect life etc etc;
But alas! man is not so patient. One must remember that all will not have the same views and we can only lay down proofs and facts for our brothers to understand. The true guidance should come from Allah alone. No other can guide us.
But we should beware of false Hadees manupulated and interpolated by the Hypocrites to ruin the concept of this total surrender.All we have to do is to go back to the source: the Quran that give us the laws of how to live this life, and the life of our beloved prophet (sal) who lived his life ONLY as the Quran directed him to. If we find any narration going agaisnt the Quran it has to be rfejected.
this is the only way to stand united.
May Allah guide us all.
