Muslims shouldn't becomelike that, ( some sunnis are like that here in the US already) . I think muslimsshould first focus on being good examples for their religion, by doing that alonepeople will respect Islam more. Of course attempts should made to EXPLAIN Islam,the image of it soo messed up right now. Still, we shouldn't turn into someJehovah's witness copycats and try to force Islam down people throats.Posted by: Hamid Rasool Oct 6 2007, 08:22 AMHere is what the last prophet was told by Allah. Because it applied to theprophet, it applies to us too as his followers:Surat Yunus (Jonah) X:2Warn mankind that disobedient conduct can lead to their extinction by the firefrom Allah; and give good news to those who believe in the Oneness of Allah and inhis prophet Muhammad that they shall have with their Lord the rewards of theirgood deeds.Posted by: Hamid Rasool Oct 6 2007, 08:31 AMHere's another scripture which answers "yes" to your question. See what Allah saidto Moses and his brother:Surah 10, Jonah10:89:Allah said: "Verily, the invocation of you both is accepted. So you both keep tothe Straight Way (in other words, keep on doing good deeds and preaching Allah'sMessage with patience), and follow not the path of those who know not the truth(in other words those who do not believe in the Oneness of Allah, and also whoalso do not believe in Allah's reward: Paradise.
