Misconceptions about Truth

In the chapter “My Journey: In Search of Truth” , i have written about my journey , how it started , what were the major events in it , who inspired me etc.

If you read that chapter , you will know that i had many misconceptions about Islam by observing the majority/culture and i really didn’t liked the Islam (mixed with culture/tradition , desires)  which was introduced to me through forefathers , culture/majority.

During my journey i found an amazing book that contained answers to many misconceptions/confusions about Islam.

( This chapter is important for everyone no matter which religion he/she follows and i advice everyone to read this chapter carefully and with sincerity). 

Here are some of the questions which that book contained :-

1. Polygamy : Why is a man allowed to have more than one wife in Islam? i.e. why is polygamy allowed in Islam?

2. Polyandry : If a man is allowed to have more than one wife, then why does Islam prohibit a woman from having more than one husband?

3. Hijab for Women : Why does Islam degrade women by keeping them behind the veil?

4. Spread by Sword : How can Islam be called the religion of peace when it was spread by the sword?

5. Muslims are Fundamentalists and Terrorists : Why are most of the Muslims fundamentalists and terrorists?

6. Eating Non-veg Food : Killing an animal is a ruthless act. Why then do Muslims consume non- vegetarian food?

7. Islamic method of slaughtering appears ruthless : Why do Muslims slaughter the animal in a ruthless manner by torturing it and slowly and painfully killing it?

8. Non-Veg food makes Muslims violent : Science tell us that whatever one eats, it has an effect on one’s behavior. Why then, does Islam allow Muslims to eat non-vegetarian food, since eating of animals could make a person violent and ferocious?

9. Muslims worship the Kabba : When Islam is against idol worship why do the Muslims worship, and bow down to the Kaaba in their prayer?

10. Non-Muslims not allowed in Makkah : Why are non-Muslims not allowed in the Holy cities of Makkah and Madinah?

11. Pork Forbidden : Why is the eating of pork forbidden in Islam?

12. Alcohol Forbidden : Why is the consumption of alcohol prohibited in Islam?

13. Equality of Witnesses : Why are two witnesses who are women, equivalent to only one witness who is a man ?

14.  Inheritance : Under Islamic law, why is a woman’s share of the inherited wealth only half that of a man?

15. Is Qur’an God’s word ? : How can you prove that the Qur’an is the word of God?

16. Hereafter : How can you prove the existence of hereafter, i.e. life after death?

17. Why are Muslims divided into sects and different school of thoughts ? : When all the Muslim follow one and the same Qur’an then why are there so many sects and different schools of thoughts among Muslims?

18. Why follow Islam ? : All religions basically teach followers to do good deeds. Why should a person only follow Islam? Can he not follow any of the religions?

19. Vast Difference between Islam and actual practices of Muslims : If Islam is the best religion, why are many of the Muslims dishonest, unreliable, and involved in activities such as cheating, bribing, dealing in drugs, etc.?

20. Non-Muslims referred to as Kafirs : Why do Muslims abuse non-Muslims by calling them Kafirs?

In the end i would advice you to don’t read the author , but read the book and i hope this book would clear many misconceptions of yours about Islam as it did mine.

About Islam Practice N Preach

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased).”
