( What Do you know About Islam )
Dr. Muhammad Ali Alkhuli
Need for Islam
How can Islam solve the problems of the west, i. e., Europe and
Islam can solve the problems of all countries if applied prperly . The
main problems of the West are alcohol, drugs crime, extra-marital sex,
materialism, and atheism. These six problems create dozens of sub-
problems such as illegal children,divorce, broken homes, one-parent
families, alcoholism, drug addiction, fraud,forgery, smuggling, and
Islam does not allow alcohol and drugs. It forbids not only taking
them, but also making, selling, buying serving, and traficking them.
Belief in God and the Last Day one hand and dtdrring penalties for
crimes on the other hand make crimes a rarity under Islam .
Islam forbids all sorts of extra-marital sex and all acts of seduction
leading to it . It forbids nudeness, Woman s tight or tansparent
clothes, unnecessary mingling of the two sexs, man-woman seclusion,
dating , mate swapping, mixed parties, and sexual material. These
measures are for prevention . for punishment, transgressors are
usually publicly punished with deterring penalties .
Islam emphasizes spirituality to balance materialism, emphasizes the
Other Life to balance this life, emphasizes the mortality of this life
to remind of the immortality of the Other Life, and, most
importantly,emphasizes moral responsibity for our deeds to God >
Islam can save the West from all its problems within several years as
prophet Muhammad could actually do. The pre-Islamic community of
Arabia had the same problems suffered by the West nowadays. Within
only twenty-three years, prophet Muhammad could save the then
community from all its diseases and turn it into a leading community,
so strong, so ideal, and so active that it could extend Islamic
territories from the borders of China in the es=ast to the shores of
the Atlantic in the west within four decades .
The only solution to the Western crises Islam, and nothing but Islam,
the right path, the straight way, the only way to salvation.
God says in the Holy Quran warning those who turn their backs on
Islam : "But whosoever turns away from My message, verily for him is a
life narrowed down, and We shall raise him blind on the Day of
Judgment. "(Taha: 124 ) . You cannot live happily if you are not
living according to the word of God, i.e.m islam, wherever you are .
