Start living by Qur’an, the only perfect and detailed book of guidance on earth.
Please remember
ISLAM  is not a new religion and Qur’an is not the first book of Islam. The only religion prescribed for the mankind and carried forward by Hadrat Abraham  (peace be upon him) is ISLAM. Qur’an is the last and final book in the series of Divine Books.
Non-Muslim descendents of Adam (as) may also update their faith and follow the latest version of Divine laws.

Faith / Re: faith needed
« Last post by laurent on July 28, 2011, 02:24:38 PM »
But shouldn't one find one's own way, rather than rely on blind trust and adopt someone else's beliefs? Yes in modern life you will need to take some time aside and think about what you do and why. I think that it is essential that you do. Whether or not you have faith. But why do you need the faith? It seems counterproductive to me, like a pre-packaged belief system you can just unwrap and adopt as your own. No thinking necessary and no need to question yourself or anything. Too easy! :)

Faith / faith needed
« Last post by Shalini on July 28, 2011, 12:03:18 PM »
I think in the world that we live in today, faith is needed more than ever. The stresses and expectations of everyday life--from family, work, relationships, etc--- can leave one feeling so overwhelmed  :-\

Religion and modern life / Religion and modern life
« Last post by laurent on July 07, 2011, 08:09:05 AM »
Are the big religions, who were founded thousands of years ago, adapted to modern life and have they managed to stay meaningful?

Personally I don't think so. I think that there are many challenges that we have today that are left out by the major religions, and this is helping to create unhealthy societies in which we seem to be living today. A striking example would be the environment. It is a major challenge today, yet it is completely left out by the religions I know. I don't know that many, of course, so feel free to contradict me, after all healthy discussion is what this site is for.

So I think that because the major religions don't address the problem directly, countless people don't consider the problem to be important in the cosmic scale of things. And I think that's a real problem. Certain people will spend much energy trying to fix problems that were mostly current thousands of years ago but will disregard important topics of today because they were not taken into account in the religious scriptures that they follow.

The problem seems to be really coming down to the dogmatic nature of religion. How can religion progress when society and the world change, and our understanding of the world, science and ourselves evolves? Does your religion change? Are there amendments done to the reference "book" over time?
