i didnt directly start to question islam because of the mistakes that affect people all around the islamic world...
Sorry to interrupt the thread a little. I have a question that I always pose to muslims and I am very curious what kind of an answer I would get from a Turk as I never asked One before. In the present days, it seems that we have a bunch of people who have 'the correct book' yet somehow, the more any society adopts that book, the closer they adopt it, the worse off their lives become.
It is as if this book is a curse when you consider it. As in, if you are unlucky enough to have this book implemented in your society, you are screwed. Screwed on every level possible. A total failure to compete. Even your terrorist will live in terror from the terrorists (armies) of other countries.
Of course, all around me, they were blaming america and england, and rarely Turkey (ottoman), even the French who were in Egypt for Three years get blamed. But really, why blame those who do not have the book.
If you were to pick a society, which society from the last 1400 yrs would you pick to live in today? Which leader would you like to see again? Which Khalifa? If you are sold (more like offered) this system, this system that had been sold for 1400yrs, shouldn't you expect them to show you examples of this system working in the past? Elevating people's lives in the past? improving them?
Can the system that failed again and again (and again and again and again IMO), yet somehow, today, with you, it will finally get to work? You must be really blessed.
