Brotherhood Among Muslim People and among Christians

Just as brotherhood exist in Christianity, brotherhood also exist in Islam. The relationship between them are so absurd that if someone hurts their brother, they will revenge. They apply the law written in their Quran, an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth.

This is why if someone kills their brother, they will also kill the killer or the relative of the killer. The do not want that any of their members are being mocked and ridiculed by someone. There is a case that a Muslim was with among the Christians, playing with them.

However, accidentally, the Christian boy hit the Muslim man. What happened next is that the Muslim reported the incident to his kin. The kin went out very angry and shouted mocking and ridiculing the Christian boy saying that he must die to pay what happened. In fact, it was just a trivial matter that happened. The Muslim Boy was not hurt that much and he was not even wounded at all.

Stoning

However, the problem became big as if the Christian boy did something deadly cause.  This is why brotherhood among Muslims are very dangerous. If one brother was hurt, all Muslim acquaintances will come out and punish the culprit. This kind of brotherhood is so different from the teachings of Christianity. For Christians, a victim has to forgive a person seventy seven times seven. For if we can forgive, we are worthy to be called humans. Humans should forgive each other in order to live peacefully and happily.

Differences Between Christians and Muslim

The differences between Islam and Christians between are like heaven and earth. All the teachings of Christians are different from the teachings of Islam. The commandments of Islam are far from the commandments of Jesus. For example, in terms of marriage, polygamy is allowed for Muslim but Christians only accept monogamy.

Dressing is far from each other. Christians do not dress using the Abaya. However, just many Christians wear dress but not all are doing it. There are so many things that we can see differences between Christians and Muslim especially in the food that we eat.

Muslim have many foods that are forbidden to eat compared to Christians. A lot of people think that Islam is worst when it comes to terrorism. A lot of people know that many terrorism happens in Muslim country and many terrorist come from Muslim country. Terrorism is tolerated in all the country but Christians can not tolerate them. This created a distance between Christians and Muslims. Christianity does not teach killing.

Christians have the freedom to transfer from different denomination to the other. They have the freedom to listen the teachings of different religion. However, it is different in the case of Muslims. Muslims can not listen to other religion. No matter what happens, Muslims can not shift to other religion because if they do this, they will be persecuted by their head. There are many Muslims who were put to death after finding out that they changed religion. In this case, it is somehow scary.

It is already a feeling of discontentment that has been going around since there are wars that are happening that is caused by the rebel groups that are Muslims. Let us all read this first.

You have read that they classified jihad into two types and they focus much now on the number one meaning of it. We can see throughout history that Muslims have caused wars from every part of the country aside from the rebels that are residents of that country. That is the reason why they are viewed negatively all over the world. The crimes they commit and the methods they used are seen unfavorably by many people. They do not respect anyone and take everything they want.

They do not practice the principles that are listed and explained above as the reason why a jihad should be done. They do not conform to what they should treat also the prisoners. They even commit more crimes rather than promoting what is good. They already passed the boundaries that give them the reason to do what they are doing and just put other Muslims and even the converts to a negative position by the other people who are against jihad.

You may have heard of the comment that women who are mothers are all gathered and talk about anything all day long without doing anything. Or they can do their household chores and then gather all together and look for things to discuss.

Learning about the benefits of prayer for believers in 4 aspects

For the Christian people, prayer is a part of their life and they practice it devotionally as they have understood that it is important. They can be able to feel close to the one they believe if they pray. That is also the same to the Muslim people. They will have benefits when they pray to their god. The Muslims are known to pray much because they have the appointed times of the day that they should pray. Here is the illustration of the different benefits.

In the first aspect that is given, prayer can contribute to the spiritual aspect of a person life. If a person does not believe in a higher being then he cannot pray because he does not know whom to offer his prayer. He then cannot, in turn, have spiritual life and will just live knowing that all is done because of what he does. It can also connect to other aspects of emotional aspect. If you only depend on yourself then you may view others as weak.

You can also have a different emotion toward something compared to others. That is why it is important to pray so that we could be given what we ask for that is deemed right not just because we want it. Also in the physical aspect, we are humans and we can become weak. If we do not have god then we will just rely on the treatment this world can do and may make every effort to live more on this earth.

The short answers to the 10 misconceptions about the prophet of Muslims

As the rise of Islam is spreading all throughout the world, there are misconceptions that are also found.

That is why there is a movement to let people know about Islam and that they can be able to become one. Let us see first the list of the misunderstandings or myths.

The first one is that a prophet is a crazy man but if you will read what he had written you cannot see any proof. They say in defense that why would Allah allow a mad person to write the book for him. That is why even if he is illiterate, he was able to write the book and that means he was chosen by Allah and so he became the prophet who wrote the book for the foundation of the faith of many people.

Another myth is that the prophet has copied the content of the Quran from the bible. It was explained that there is no version of the Bible in the Arabic language and so the prophet cannot copy it. regarding also his marriage to a young female. It is natural for them at that time to marry even if they are young in age. So he is not a pedophile and a molester of a child either.

It may be a different way but it is similar to others.
