Mum, I'm a Muslim...!

I watched this interesting documentary on Astro Oasis about four British women who embraced Islam and become a Muslim despite the warning of Muslim terrorism in New York on September 11 by the so called "world police".

These women have strong courage to defend what they believe and to guard their faith in their new religion. The most interesting part of the documentary that really made me want to jump and say "That's it!!" was when one of these new sisters in Islam asked by the interviewer why she decided to convert to Islam. She said something like this,

"I read the Bible and the Qu'ran. Whilst the Qur'an tells you the history and personal background of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)from his childhood until his last breath, I can't find any history of Jesus. Who is he? Where did he come from? How am I to believe him?"

The documentary film is available on if you are interested to watch it for yourself. This is part 2 of 6 of the film).

But then, there's also a part of the documentary that I don't quit agree, that was when one of the sisters was asked what's the punishment for adulterers in Islam and she answered,

"Murdered. Adulterers will be murdered"

For people who do not understand the Islamic syari'ah law, they would say that sort of punishment is 'extremely barbaric'. But really, that's not what she meant. For adultery, if one is not married yet, then one will be caned 100 times on their bare back. Reason: body cells that were hit when caned will trigger alert to produce 'prevention'(sorry, I'll find the right word and replace it here later)so that the chance of getting infected with HIV AIDS is slim.

On the other hand, if the adulterer is married, then one need to be stoned to death. Reason: to prevent one from transfering HIV AIDS from oneself to spouse and possibly their child(ren). We've seen such common scenarios where a man infected his wife and sometimes his unborn child with HIV AIDS. They live in despair, shut themselves away from other people, they bear low confidence in themselves, and finally die in misery. There are logic explanations behind each and every rules and law proposed in Islam that if you fully understand its purpose, you would agree to it as well.

It's wonderful to know that more people around the world are choosing Islam as their way of life. I am proud I was born a Muslim.
