Voice: Islam is modern,enlightened religion

December 21, 2001

Some people who say they are acting in the name of

religion may misunderstand their religion or practice it wrongly.

Islam as described in the Qur'an is a modern, enlightened, progressive religion. Violence and unjust aggression are forbidden by Islam.

Qur'an orders people to be dignified, modest, kind, faithful, mature and responsive. On that account, the duty of a believer is to apply these superior principles that God has decreed.

A Muslim educated in the fine moral teaching of the Qur'an, approaches everyone with the love that Islam expects. He shows respect for every idea.

A Muslim lends beauty to the world and improves it. In societies composed of individuals such as this, there will be a higher civilization, a higher social morality, more joy, happiness, justice, security, abundance and blessings than in the most modern nations of the world today.


Briefly, Islam and the moral teaching of the Qur'an are against terrorism and terrorists. Islam came down to offer humanity a life filled with peace and well-being in which God's eternal mercy and compassion is manifested in the world. In my opinion, everyone should take a look at www.islamdenounce" as it explains the Muslims' real thoughts about Islam.
