True teachings of Islam.

Arab NewsThe report "Group 'executes' two young Saudis in Syria" (March 30) should serve as an eye-opener to those people who get easily swayed by people preaching their deviant ideology in the guise of Islam. These militant groups are fighting for their selfish interests. Had they been following true teachings of Islam, they would have ensured safety of non-combatants. With the report in question, the true nature of these groups has been exposed.

It is the responsibility of parents and teachers to educate the youth about this issue and make necessary arrangements to keep them away from demagogues. These demagogues have a myopic worldview and they interpret teachings of Islam according to their own needs. They usually present Islam as a religion void of any aesthetic sense, which is very wrong. Islam wants its followers to live their lives to the fullest and enjoy all the blessings of Allah. Amassing wealth is not at all bad if one earns through halal means and spends it according to the teachings of Qur'an and Sunnah. Islam is a complete code of life and if followed properly, ensures success in this life and the hereafter. Unfortunately, we cannot just blame a handful of people. We are also to be blamed. We have left pondering over Qur'an and its true message. In the Holy Book, Allah has called on all human beings to ponder over the creation of this universe and the verses of the Qur'an. We only recite it without understanding the essence of the book. In today's world, the need for properly understanding the true meanings of Qur'an has increased multifold. Muslims are living under abysmal conditions all across the globe. We have to turn to Qur'an for guidance and success in this life and the hereafter. -- Lala, Jeddah
