what is religion?
human beings’ relation to that which they regard as holy, sacred, spiritual, or divine. Religion is commonly regarded as consisting of a person’s relation to God or to gods or spirits. Worship is probably the most basic element of religion, but moral conduct, right belief, and participation in religious institutions are generally also constituent elements of the religious life as practiced by believersand worshipers and as commanded by religious sages and scriptures. (britannica)

so it is not a need for body, you’re not gonna die without it but you cant find the way to salvation without keeping the faith to your creator.
i really dont wanna discuss about the essence of religion, it’s up to you to find the ending of your life. i believe in hell & heaven ; i believe that we can not be punished or rewarded for our deeds in this world cos it’s not capable of that. so if you dont believe in the creator or his role in this universe, please click the X sign on the right side.

there’s this undeniable fact that for every human there’s a path to reach the creator but we need some instruction, like i use my puter the way i like but i need some software to communicate with the hardware. so i need religion to communicate with the eternity who created me.

there are different religions & beliefs & each has many branches. since the creation of Adam ,124000 prophets stepped on this planet to guide human beings, among these there were only 5 prophets who had sprictures sent by God. Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad.
from these prophets came the 3 major religions of the world: judaism, christianity and islam

Judaism:the religion of the Jews. It is the complex expression of a religious and ethnic community, a way of life as well as a set of basic beliefs and values, which is discerned in patterns of action, social order, and culture as well as in religious statements and concepts.

Christianity: major religion, stemming from the life, teachings, and death of Jesus of Nazareth (the Christ, or the Anointed One of God) in the 1st century AD. It has become the largest of the world’s religions. Geographically the most widely diffused of all faiths, it has a constituency of some 2 billion believers. Its largest groups are the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox churches, and the Protestantchurches; in addition to these churches there are several independent churches of Eastern Christianity as well as numerous sects throughout the world.

Islam : major world religion belonging to the Semitic family; it was promulgated by the Prophet Muammad in Arabia in the 7th century AD. The Arabic term islām, literally “surrender,” illuminates the fundamental religious idea of Islām—that the believer (calleda Muslim, from the active particle of islām) accepts “surrender to the will ofAllāh (Arabic: God).” Allāh is viewed as the sole God—creator, sustainer, and restorer of the world. The will of Allāh, to which man must submit, is made known through the sacred scriptures, the Qurān (Koran), which Allāh revealed to his messenger, Muḥammad. In Islām Muammad is considered the last of a series of prophets (including Adam, Noah, Jesus,and others), and his message simultaneously consummates and abrogates the “revelations” attributedto earlier prophets.

Retaining its emphasis on an uncompromisng monotheism and a strict adherence to certain essential religious practices, the religion taught by Muammad to a small group of followers spread rapidly through the Middle East to Africa, Europe, the Indian subcontinent, the Malay Peninsula, and China. Although many sectarian movements have arisen within Islām, all Muslims are bound by a common faith and a sense of belonging to a single community.

i dont wanna discuss which is the best cos it may be interpreted as political judgements than other things.
but personally when talking about judaism, i think of israel and palestine. when talking about christinity i think of pope & people genrally called westerners and when talking about islam, i think about arabs & i mean no offense.

every religion has fanatics who’re not approved by the followers of that religion. unfortunately religions are so dependent on politics that we cant judge each of them fairly cos we dont know what is really fair and what is not.

so let’s jus discuss my own beliefs, personally i dont like jews and their attitude, they have money and they can buy whatever they like, it’s more about war than peace.
i have no problem with christianity generally speaking but when some says jesus was the son of God it doesnt make sense to me, God created Adam from claim & he was God’s creation not son, so why should be jesus any better. i dont wanna even discuss the virginity of his mother. jus think if Jesus was the son of God, we as humans can never follow him the way asked cos he wasnt a human of our kind. God could send angels to guide humans, but he never did cos it’s silly to follow an angel that’s not our kind.
obviously i found islam better than the rest, i have my own reasons but dont wanna write about them, they may bore you.

jus a few reasons:
1. islam never invited his followers to war, it wants them to negotiate with other religions first, though there were times in history muslim started wars to spread their religion, judaism & christianity are no better.
2. it’s not said that believers of other religions go to hell & only muslims go to heaven. it’s said we’re judged by our deeds, our good deeds are rewarded and bad deeds are punished, no one goes to hell or heaven by claimin they were muslims. other religions have their own hell and heaven. only  the heathen go to hell (heathen according to islam is some one who does not believe in the God (Allah), even those who believe in other gods beside the God are not called heathen. )
3. though there are some rules in islam that may sound men are prefered creatures, there’s no difference between men and women apart from the physical abilities.
conclusion: islam’s not a religion of war but peace, it doesnt ask its believers to kill those who have their own beliefs rather than islamic ones and every one is the same in the presence of God and only judged by their deeds.

some verses from Quran:
4:1 (page77) ; O mankind! reverence your Guardian-Lord Who created you from a single person created of like nature his mate ……….
30:21 (p 406) And among His Signs is this that He created for you mates from among yourselves that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts); verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.
30:22 (p406) And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and  the earth and the variations in your languages and your colors: verily in that are Signs for those who know.
49:13 (p 517) O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male  and a female and made you into nations and tribes that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other).  Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you.  And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).

  1. huh, did i sound hard? sorry then. to me the important thing is to believe in one God, respect him & be nice to others & dont do things that are labeled as immoral, people who are like that some how has a religion of their own, a path to reach their creator,that religion necessarily shouldnt have a name, you can bargain over it later with mr almighty 🙂
    i really agree with what you say & i dont think judaism & israel are the same, i jus wanted to say what those words remind me of.
    and about joinin, well easy, jus go to http://www.groups.yahoo.com then search coffeeEnglishDiscussion & then join, easy, right?

  2. I was brave enough the other day to admit this to someone else so you’re next.

    Any road that is paved with love, kindness, tolerance, faith, hope, charity, integrity, fairness……leads to God.

    No matter what we claim to believe, if we live without the above, we are not spiritual people. Unless we are demonic. 😀

  3. 100% agree, yes i love the paved roads 🙂
