A flash was sent to me through email and I really really wanna share it!!
Introduction by Nayzak (the one who made this flash):
Assalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],
3 days ago, I saw one deviation here in this website called “Religion of Peace” where someone tried to prove, in his way, that Islam is not a religion of peace. he provided what he claims to be violent and aggressive quotes from the Holy Qur’an. I don’t know if he read the Qur’an and quoted them or just found them in some websites…
I usually ignore this kind of people. but this one attracted my attention for a few reasons. so I decided to reply.
I could be wrong, but I think if I were to reply him in his page trying to explain things to him (and based on my experience with many people who attack Islam) the obvious reaction from him would be blocking me and hiding my comment. and since he expressed his opinion using his Artskills, I express my reply using my Artskills.
so here I reply to him in a place where even others may benefit from what I have to say.
EDIT: I didn’t post a link to his page. but one thing I’d like to remind you people: if you happen to go to visit his page and talk to him. be respectful. hateful comments will not convince him that he is wrong. wise conversations and civilized manners are what makes people understand each other. thanks a lot.
it took me 3 days in order to finish this one. it’s a little long but I hope you like it and benefit from it. if you find this useful, please share it with your friends and the people you know.
feel free to ask any questions you have. ^_^
let knowledge be shared with everyone.
WARNING: a very long slideshow (around 300 frames)
if you find any mistakes, please let me know.
I tested it several times, but since it’s long, I might have missed some mistakes.
I would love to add the flash here, but wordpress says ‘no no’ to it so i shall give you the link.
The islamophobist take Quranic verses out of context painfully. Oh! They don’t even quote the full verse because it will let people know the truth and the logic behind it.
I truly say these people know what they are doing but they are afraid of Islaam’s guidance, may be u can say they have an ill feeling, “Why God didn’t create me in His guidance from my birth?”.
Its like they don’t want to agree, “Yes I was doing something wrong..” so they trap others to fall into their pit.
What I say to them is,
“Look don’t spit on the sky, you know what happens!
If you say ‘total peace’ means you shouldn’t kill an ‘ant’ then no one can be peaceful. Islam wants us to be ‘truly’ peaceful in an ‘applicable’ way. You will know the logic behind it when you learn it from ‘the right person in the right way'”
You know what happened today?? I GOT MADDDDDDDDDD…YEAH I REALLY GOT MADDDDDDDDDDDD…
Actually I checked some posts speaking about how to increase blog speed. It was quite catchy for me so I decided to try out its tips (although my blog is not that slow to load).
In one of its points, it said to delete the unwanted trash we have in our administration area..thats not wrong its correct.
But while carrying out that step I DID A BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG WRONGGGGGGGGGGGGGG.
YES I DELETED ALL MY IMAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Actually I didn’t know what I am doing, I thought it would be still there in the display and coolly I was deleting those 178 PICTURES..within a few clicks..
Thinking, “Aah! My blog will load in SUPER DOOPER SPEED now” I returned to the homepage only to find it IN IT’S DEATH BED! 😦
MY HEART STOPPED…REALLY I WAS FAINTINGGGGGGGGGGGGG…
MY BLOG WAS TORN APART…I LOST EVERYTHING…
MY BACKGROUND, MY HEADER, MY POST PICTURES, MY FEATURED IMAGES..NOTHING WAS THERE..
I realized I deleted my 1 month work with MY OWN HANDS!!!
And I don’t have a saving of those images..
Without spending much time in thinking…I started making my images again..
But my heart beat was at its peak..I dunno what I am doing..
I donno why I deleted them..I donno why I am re-doing it ..!!!
SERIOUSLY, CAN I MAKE THOSE 178 IMAGES AGAIN?
Few posts of mine were only based on images!!!
Thoughts flushing in my mind, trying to remember which image I made for which post..uhhh
WORDPRESS SHOULD REALLY HAVE A ‘TRASH’ FOR IMAGES TOO.. OR ATLEAST AN UNDO BUTTON!
And while carrying out my ‘EXTRA-ORDINARY INTELLIGENCE’, I did check my images in the home page once..this idiotic latest post SHOWED ITS IMAGE!!! So I was pretty sure my all other images will be there!!!
I started making my pictures..minutes running, hours running..I am telling you, just now at 6:32 pm I got all my images back..yes a BREAKLESS WORK FROM 9-6 IS WORTHFULL..
I AM HAPPY TO SAY..MY BLOG IS BACK..MUCH BETTER THAN BEFORE..
YES I ADDED SOME NEW PICTURES TOO..AND I BROUGHT BACK THE SAME IMAGES 99%..
hmm… I did my 1 month work in this single day…subhaanallaah..God helped me..
I WOULD SAY THIS IS A RE-BIRTH TO MY BLOG. PHEWWW!!!..
The Guru Granth Sahib, the central scripture and Guru of Sikhs, strongly rejects idolatry. Idolatry is also rejected by the Dasam Granth a scripture by the tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh, and within numerous rehatnamas (documents codifying the code of conduct of the Sikh religion), such as the Sikh Rehat Maryada and the Budha Dal Rehatnama.
Sikhism criticises the practice of using idols to represent God and pray to him.
Human figures of religious significance, such as the Sikh gurus, are common in ‘modern’ Sikhism, and the Sikh attitude to non-religious images is generally relaxed.
Mouth Shut (??!!)
The historical Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama or Shakyamuni) neither regarded himself nor wished to be regarded as a God.
In any of the ‘Sacred’ texts of Buddhism we do not find any evidence or statement approving or promoting of idol worship by Buddha.
On the contrary, Buddha has opposed making of idols, when Ananda, a close relative, the most devoted attendant and a leading monk sought permission to make an idol of Buddha.
The practice of idol worship in present day Buddhism is an innovation, defying the teachings of Buddha.
Christmas Humpreys, author of the book ‘Buddhism’, says of himself that he studied Buddhism for thirty years and of Buddhism in the world today he knows more than most and he has this to say about the Buddhist Scriptures:
“The Buddha himself wrote nothing, and none of his teaching was written down for at least four hundred years after his death.We, therefore do not know what the Buddha taught, any more than we know what Jesus taught; and today at least four schools, with sub-division in each, proclaim their own view as to what is Buddhism”.
The disappearance of original teachings and practices of Buddha are almost complete today, for the Buddhists are sunk in superstitions, idol worship and Hindu religious rituals. Original Buddhism has changed colors completely.
H.G. Wells (An Outline of History Page 392) has described this in a very terse language. “Gautama’s disciples have cared more for the preservation of his tree than of his thought, which from the first they distorted and misconceived (the Bodh tree which helped him to rest his back, while achieved ‘enlightenment’, still exists and with a sapling from the original tree planted in Sri Lanka, the Sri Maha Bodi in Anuradapura , venerated and worshipped excessively)”.
Writing on the corruption of Buddhism, Mr. Wells makes the following interesting observations:
About this Buddhist countryside he would discover a number of curious little mechanisms, little wind-wheels and water-wheels spinning, on which brief prayers were inscribed. Every time these things spin, he would learn, it counts as a prayer. ‘To whom?’, he would ask.
The most striking and undisputable statement about the authenticity of the Buddhist scriptures is by Chief Monk Akuratiye Amarawansa, Chancellor of the Vidyodaya Buddhist University (Pirivena), Maligakanda, Colombo; Scholar of the Tripitaka and Chief Monk of Southern Sri Lanka. In his preface to the Sinhala translation of Deega Nikaya, he has expressed the following:
“The Deega Nikaya that we see today cannot be assuredly said to be the same one that was presented to the first reform council (Dharma Sangayana). Many reform councils were held subsequently and these Nikayas and divisions would have been subjected to many changes. Therefore, the most acceptable view would be that the present Deega Nikaya is a collection of sutras subjected to changes, additions and deletions taken place after the first reform council.”
So if you find anything to be in favour of ‘idol worship’ in Buddhism.. simply remind yourself of ‘Cheif Monk’ Akuratiye’s Statement.
Idol worship is prohibited in Zoroastrianism’s Sacred Scriptures too!
1. I also saw the souls of a man and a woman (2) whom they ever DRAG, the man to heaven and the woman to HELL. (3) And the woman’s hand was caught in the knot and sacred thread [kusti] of the man, (4) and she said thus: ‘How is it when we had every benefit in union, among the living, (5) now they are dragging thee to heaven, and me to HELL?’
10. But you despised the good and poor and worthy and travellers; (11) you also disregarded God, and YOU WORSHIPPED IDOLS; (12) and practised evil thoughts and evil words and evil deeds; (13) and you have been steadfast in the religion of ahriman and the demons.’
– THE BOOK OF ARDA VIRAF, a holy book of Zoroastrianism..
Idol Worship is considered as a transgression of Zoroastrian commandment. For Scriptural verification,please refer to Patet Pashemani Manthra, Kardeh 10 word 21 (ozdist parasti).
I am asking you O! My dear Zoroastrians..
What do you think about ‘fire’? Is it not an idol? I mean do you think an idol is only made up of clay or a stone?
