Is it Islam we follow, or a religion that we have made up for our selves?
This is a question we must ask our selves, the Christian and Jews claim to be following the religion of Islam, even due they call it some thing else. It is a fact that Christianity and Judaism as they exist today have nothing to do with Jesus and Moses, or the Islam they came with. So its clear that claiming to follow Islam does not mean following Islam. Do we follow Islam?
It is known that in Islam Riba is harram and Jihad is farrad. For some reason this has turned in to a different kind of knowledge to the fact that Salat is farrad and pork is harram. Is the religion we follow a edited version of what was revealed by Allah?
Who did the editing? Which editor is competent enough to decide what parts of Allahs deen that he sent to last until the day of judgement is not valid for this time and place?
Christianity was turned in to what it is today because the missionaries who wanted to convert the pagan Europeans wanted to make Islam easy for them. They made pork hallal, and polygamy harram. Due to these changes many Europeans found it very easy to convert to the new religion. But this new religion that makes life easy for the pagans who wanted to embrace it, is not Islam. Today people say non-Muslims will not become Muslim unless we make Riba hallal in Islam, or women will be too scared to become Muslim if we keep polygamy hallal. Maybe these people are right, may be conversion rates will increase if they make their changes, but that religion will no longer be Islam. Today the deen of the west is no longer Christianity, Christianity is now a dead religion in the rich Northwest. Their religion is themselves and their vain desires. It consists of feminism, patriotism , capitalism, Freedom and democracy.
Today the west is trying to encourage Muslims to reinterpret Islam to fit in with the dominant kufr, just like the Christians have done. And allot of Muslims are busy doing it. In Islam difference of opinion is due to a difference in understanding the text of Islam. the reason for choosing a opinion is to find the one which you think is the right one. When some one goes throw the different opinions to try and find one that agrees most with the Kufr ideas he is fascinated by. He is not following Islam, he is following the kufr ideas he tries to find evidence in Islam to legitimise. So people who go throw the madahibs, looking for evidences to legitimise feminist, Capitalist and democratic ideas does not follow bits of different madahids, he follows what he seeks to legitimise.

|hmm it's to do with certain muslims accepting that certain people have power over them and then distorting islam to fit their belief|
