Precisely, that murdering people in the name of Islam is a real misrepresentation of Islam, not how many times I pray and whether I hold my hands to the side, or folded, and where my toes are pointed when I’m sitting. Get a grip of what is important.Now as far the people who blow themselves up, I am not sure why you think they are any more knowledgeable in the quran
I am not an expert in Ta’lim , and never claimed to be; if your truly interested in learning about Batin then I would be more than willing to recommend some introductory sources, I can even paste examples from the Qu’ran. I am also willing to explain the concept to you, I am not qualified to perform Tafsir either, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.Ismaili brother avoided that question
I‘ll rephrase what I have yet to receive an answer to, why if your interpretation of Islam is the only true version, has it become infected with violence; of the most depraved, and inhuman kind? You’ve also not dealt with the role of women, and you’re the one who defends the idea that the prophet would go around setting buildings alight. You negate one type of unprovoked violence; yet approve of another. If you can sit at ease with that contradiction, all power to you.
It boils down to this, if your seriously want to go down the route of saying my Islam is better than yours, I’m right, your wrong, I’m Muslim your Kafir…your going to have to point to a modern Muslim state and leader who has recently or is now living the dream man.
If you can’t or won’t then lets move on to actually trying to co-operate, and appreciate each other in our common faith and humanity, which will be far more productive for either of us.
I find a lot of spiritual comfort reading from scholars from Meshed, in Iran to Cairo in Egypt, I even give my time as a mentor to help young Muslims break into the media in Britain so that WE are better able to represent Islam, when it or the Palestinians are marginalised, I know of two other Isma’ili friends who work for leading UK newspapers who are actively doing something similar. We’re not your enemy.
