i don't want to offend muslim ppl but islamic culture is often uncivilized n undemocratic(compared with western culture).Wait;im not talkin about the islamic religion,im talkin about his culture,the way islamic ppl behave in the foreign countries where lifestyles,rules n freedoms r different from islamic states.The problem started because islamic ppl(Of course not every1) often prefer respectin their culture's laws instead respectin the laws n the citizens of the foreign country which host them.
I don't like islamic culture for some reasons ,for example the woman's role,but i don't want to accuse any1.I just wanna say that i can understand fully ppl who don't like muslims as i can understand the muslims who just follows the rules they were taught in their home places.
As Salam Alaikum,
For a Muslim who knows and follows the teachings of the Qur'an and the way of the Prophet Muhammad (peace, blessings, and mercy of Allah be upon him), Islam overrules culture, ethnicity, nationalism, and everything else. Muslims believe that Islam is a complete way of life.
Unfortunately, some Muslims, due to ego and nationalism, respect and follow the customs of their culture over the ways of Islam.
Politically, what kind of conclusions do you draw out of that?
Coming from a whole different background i am strongly of the opinion, that religion and politics have to be separated. In Europe, too much damage has been done in the name of religion when it was the predominant factor and i strongly doubt, that people that are in charge of political decisions would ever act according to the true virtues of religion.
They would rather twist its teachings to increase their own power.
This counts for Islam & Christianity. History has already proven that.
Man-made social and political systems will always fall short and fail because man does not know what is best for himself or anybody else. The knowledge of what is best for humankind, animals, and everything else, is only with God.
Shari'ah (Islamic law or government), is from God revealed through the Qur'an and through the Prophet in what is called Hadith Qudsi. The only responsibility of the human is to enforce and abide by the Shari'ah.
Saying that, it is possible for humans to twist the Shari'ah, just like they twist the words of the Qur'an, to fit their own goals and interpretations, which of course is illegal in the sight of God. Who are we to change the law of the Creator of everything?
