Islam's bad teachings; views.

MAUREEN Messent eulogises Muslims for their devotion to their annual Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim year, lasting 30 days, during which strict fasting is observed from sunrise to sunset.

In the Islamic religion the Koran is regarded as the literal and inerrant word of the one true God. It is in Chapter 2, Verse 185 of the Koran that we find Allah's command to observe Ramadan.

What does the Koran teach about Muslims befriending non-Muslims? Chapter 5, Verse 80 of the Koran teaches that Muslims who befriend non-Muslims will spend eternity in hell.

The point is this: By any measure of ethics we might wish to adopt, there are good beliefs and there are bad ones - and it should now be obvious to everyone that Islam has its fair share of the latter.
