Conclusions Drawn From The Statements Of Some People (Part 2)

– Christianity represents Allâhu ta'âlâ only as a source of fear. Islam, in contrast, makes one love Allâhu ta'âlâ. What a Muslim fears for is lest he should incur the hatred of Allâhu ta'âlâ.

– No one can force another person to become a Muslim. The two hundred and fifty-sixth âyat of Baqara Sûra of the Qur'ân al-kerîm purports the injunction, "Conversion to Islam should not be done through compulsion." On the other hand, Christian missionaries are trying to Christianize people by coersion or by promising advantages.

– The Islamic acts of worship are intended only to express gratitude to Allâhu ta'âlâ and to attain His love. The prescribed prayer times drill people in orderliness and punctuality, and the yearly one-month fasting trains them to have command of their corporeal tendencies.

–Islam puts a special emphasis on cleanliness. Islam is the only religion which commands to do a certain type of physical cleaning before an act of worship. This strictness is totally missing from the other religions. The brevity of daily prayers rules out the possibility of their being a handicap to the daily chores.

– Formation of good habits such as tenderness, charity, and compassion, which are the dominant topics of the sermons given by Christian clergymen, but which are never put into practice by their preachers, let alone by the preached, are peculiar to Muslims.

– On the economic platform, Islam jettisons both the capitalistic materialism and the communistic utopia. It protects the poor, without censuring the rich. It commands the rich to pay zakât to the poor. Furthermore, bringing together Muslims belonging to the sundry nations and races of the world, it establishes the most perfect social system of the world [Hajj].

– Islam prohibits consumption of alcohol, gambling, and drugs. The most disastrous vices of the world originate from these three pestilences.

– No Christian clergyman can explain what will become of people after death, or life and situations in the Hereafter. Islam provides the best and most detailed explanation on this subject.

– Islam is the only religion that commands to help the poor, the destitute and the forlorn travellers, no matter what their religion is. – Islam does not force any person to believe in something he cannot understand. Unlike other religions, it does not comprehend any mysterious abstractions in the name of credo.
