How do you know that it is perfect? You may think that it is perfect, but others would also think that their is perfect. I think, therefore, it is important that we dialogue and discuss. If Muslims think that theirs is right, then they must dialogue and try to tell others why yours is right, and other's wrong. If we don't dialogue everybody thinks there are the best, and we end up killing each other. So my question to you is why do you think that Islam is the perfect religion?

You have not given reason why you think it is perfect.Everybody else will think that Islam is not perfect and that is why they are not Muslim. But I wish to know why you think it is perfect. A religion that is perfect must also be able to give reason why it is not imperfect. Don't you think so?

Indeed Islam is a perfect religion , as I think too. Jews Denied Jesus , Christian Dined Muhammad , But Muslims believe in all prophets and respect all Of them and make no distinction among any of them. The Quran : [002:136] Say ye: "We believe in God, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we bow to God (in Islam)." [002:285] The Apostle believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in God, His angels, His books, and His apostles. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His apostles." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys." [003:084] Say: "We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to God do we bow our will (in Islam)." Thank You For Your Discussion .

You have given a brief description dear so thanks to u. all Prophets are freom God and they spread the message from God to all of us and before us. But after Muhammad (P.B.U.H) Islam is the final and perfect religion from God.and we also have to give respect all the prophts before our beloved one. Thanks again.

Islam insults Jesus, making up some fiction that he was not crucified, making him bogus and deceitful. all the best urban

there is no insult to Jesus Christ PBUH or any of God 's Prophets PBUT in Islam . It is not insult to Jesus PBUH that the holy Quran mentioned the Fact That the one who got crucified was not Jesus but a Likeness. the Holy Quran : [003:045] Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! God giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to God; [003:046] "He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. And he shall be (of the company) of the righteous." Do you see any insult ? we also believe was not crucified because Jesus said : John 8:29 KJV And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. but the one who was on the cross cried out in a loud voice "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

Hi, Atifhahzad1. At first I do agree with you about "Islam is a perfect religion" (and I think others will say the same about their religion). If you do not need to compare yours with others, it's OK. What if I ask you a question, "Why?" God bless, Atifshahzad1!

Hi der thanks for ur response i am not saying that we dont have to put the qualities or teachings of islam to others i am just saying we dont have the need to compare it with other religions. It is a complete religion and we have to talk of it in our discussions i think so and not to compare. As in comparison we say it is also in the other religions and also in islamn then wat a new comer or other follower will think of it.

I see. And so far I have my own reason why I do not need to compare my religion with that of others, since talking about one's religion is talking about one's faith. And it's more than a scientific talk, isn't it? It's deeper than just a science. So, validity of the comparisons people can make (if any), are just scientific; they do not get into the core of other's beliefs. That's my opinion. Thanks for the comment back, Atifshahzad1.

In this imperfect world nothing is perfect! Even that Almighty God or Allah commits mistakes. If everybody starts reading scriptures then who will perform the duties of human beings! Islam or any other religion won't feed you in the times of hardships. It is the hardwork that feeds you not that Allah or God. If you have strong will then not even he can stop you. You must have heard that great saying "God help those who help themselves". Just remember these lines and perform your earthly duties! Both heaven and hell are here only.Your deeds shall be redeemed in your present birth. NOBODY HAS SEEN GOD! THOSE WHO CLAIM SUCH ARE NOTHING BUT FRAUDSTERS.

By above statements I don't mean he isn't there but he can't be seen. He is divine energy and can only be felt!

all religions are perfect religions though...Comparing religions IMO is needed so that ppl can open their eyes and see that the similarities are great...maybe by comparing them more ppl will gradually realize this and the hatred and naysaying will eventually come to an end...Doubt that will ever happen though LOL but its a nice thought ;-)

i am know here every one have different religion and they think it to be perfect also. my point of view is that we ddonat ahve to compare the islam with others we have to make study of it just its study not comparative study because we have to learn it and study is better.
