It's perfectly human to grapple with questions, like ‘Where do we come from?’ and ‘How do I live a life of meaning?’ These existential questions are central to the five major world religions -- and that’s not all that connects these faiths. John Bellaimey explains the intertwined histories and cultures of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.https://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-five-major-world-religions-john-bellaimey

Don't listen to that backwards pagan bulls**t, you shouldn't follow a religion because it sounds cool.

Well I'm Catholic too and the amount of bulls**t running rampant around the west right now is ridiculous. With the amount of people who believe in reincarnation and astrology now you never know.

Every religion in the world has one end goal in common... enlightenment or moksha! To escape the cycle of life and death.

Guys in Islam it's said in the Holy Quran that You shouldn't be forcing anyone to enter Islam , and for me I have all respect for anyone with whatever religion but being peaceful and respectful to other humans.

For those of us who hear a lot about Islam, but actually know almost nothing about it, what would you like to add?
I mean, extremists are extremists.. what do you believe God made us for? How do you believe we are supposed to treat each other, and how do you believe God wants us to treat those who believe otherwise? (if you don't mind me asking..)

We Muslims believe that life is a test and that you should believe only in one god and Muhammad is his final messenger and believe in his angels and books (quran.bible.Torah) and all of his messengers and the test is about who is righteous. You see in judgment day we will stand in front of allah (god) and our sins and good deeds will be majored if good deeds surpass the sins you go to heaven and the opposite. And if you ask why he did not show himself to us or made us all one religion, there will be no test.We will be LIKE angels we won't sin at all.Is it all clear now?
