As salamu Alaikum brothers and sisters. I am new to this sight and I am sick and tired of nonbelievers and terrorist like those bombers in Boston and Hamas giving our religion a bad name. What can we do to change it?

Chuckster- I was born and raised Christian (from both baptist and Pentecostal denominations) and I can tell you that I didn't know anything of Islam and only knew what I saw and heard from the media. I met my husband who is a Muslim and started asking a lot of questions and reading books. I think everyone should read "The Idiots Guide to Understanding Islam" to learn more about the basic beliefs. After doing my research and meeting other Muslims I can tell you that they are some of the best people in the world who follow their religion a lot more strictly than most other religions. The Pentecostals that I grew up with that were against watching TV are now modernizing and allowing TVs in their homes. I say this because the biggest thing I've noticed with Islam is that they don't really modernize. The rules that were followed back when Islam started are the same rules they go by today. Honestly it is a very good religion if followed correctly. To answer your question: No, it is not a Muslims goal to convert everyone to Islam. Killing is not just freely allowed either.

I would also like to say that we can't judge all Muslims based on a few people's actions. How would the Christians feel if the world thought all Christians were like those of Westboro Baptist Church? The reaction you had of me saying that is the same reaction Muslims have when being thought of as the extremists who we hear about from the media.

Its depends on your nature and point of thinking . Everyone have its own thinking its according to you but for my point of view Islam is such a beautiful religion i can not describe with words. This religion provide you peace, prosperity ,and all rights of women. But if you compare to other religion they never importance the women rights.

I think a good way is to make sure we teach Muslims the peaceful aspects of Islam so that they do not end up radicalized in any way.
