this guy doesn't really know what hes talking about...First;the Quran divine language can only be understood if you were truly adept in the Arabic language. Second; the language spoken now by the Arabs has deteriorated, or changed much from the past and therefore most verses are hard to directly translate with ease, specially if you're not Arab and took guidance on it from someone who is NOT qualified to do the "Tafsir" or explanation. Third, Muslims refer to the Hadiths for a more appropriate explanation because after all..the quran was sent to us through the last messenger of g-d prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon his name) and it was based on the events that happened through his life time.
Most importantly,quoting this guy " alleged sayings of Muhammad which was compiled 200+ years AFTER the death of Muhammad. " Is totally UNTRUE, because Hadiths were written and preserved for more than 1429 years to date, which can be checked at the proper Islamic museums in Saudia Arabia and other islamic nations such as Turkey..The "Sahaba(those who accompanied the prophet)" were the ones who compiled the quran and Hadiths in the era of Rashidun Caliphate Omar bin al Khatab and it was their disciples and their disciples disciples (also called Tabi'een) who compiled the writings onto paper instead of deer skin that was used earlier.
I hope i cleared the misconception, stated before and please if you need more info on the subject of Islam or any other religion as a matter of fact; try finding someone who is knowledgeable about the subject and trusted by other followers.
to leave you with a word in mind..."if u dropped a needle in the east, don't go west to find it !!"

hi everyone my name is Abdullah and i am from India,i just want to clear that what ever this guy said about Quran(not Koran)and hadith is totally wrong Quran is law,teachings,document of past happening and first of all it is the gods words,gods book.Friends before you comment upon Quran and Hadith please and please read these book and understand it properly,i am not telling you to convert to muslim but atleast you can read it and yes most of the hadith in this time are not authentic most of them are writen by Jews to move Islam from a peaceful religion to ungraceful religion so buy those books which are referred by our Moulanas like Shahi Muslim.And for the death penalty for Adultery,one question to you friend if your wife had adultery with someone else (illegal Sex)what will you do,be frank friend or to the sisters what will you do if your husband cheated you will you praise him you will question him.In Islam it is forbidden to look at any other women than your wife and by mistake you look so one glance is forgiven by Allah but not the second one and third on so on so adultery is wrong not only in Islam but all the religion,Now about the thieves hand cut of,what happens if someone steals your valuable when you are asleep or out of house or on the road you are walking and someone comes and shows you knife and steals what ever you have which you earned so hard for you,your wife ,your childrens,if thieves is caught ones he is given a warning for 2 times and if he doesn't understands and does it for third time his hands are coped of so first read about Islam and then comment on it,you see all terrorist are Muslim but they are fake spoiling the name of Islam but still more than millions of people convert to Muslim its Wallahs grace and mercy on us and killing of the person who insult our beloved prophet Muhammad,One question what if i insult your Jesus Christ or marry in front of whole world what will you go through but i will not insult not because Jesus is your god and all stuff but because in Islam he is a prophet and as a Muslim i respect him as a prophet and for last the dress code of women in Islam,you look around in western countries look rape are at its peak because of the dress which are so revealing man your wife ,sister and daughter wear mini skirts and roam around then any men would want a chance there is no dignity in it no respect in front of fathers,brothers and husband. wife is only foe her husband what ever she can do confront of husband in closed doors but at least be respectful in front of the world have a sense of dress code thats way women are kept like precious stone covered so that no evil eyes can hurt her and we give respect to womens so again i request you to read Quran and hadith properly than come to a comment. Thank You

Islam oppresses women.
The image of the typical Muslim woman wearing the veil and forced to
stay home and forbidden to drive is all too common in most peoples
thoughts. Although some Muslim countries may have laws that oppress
women, this should not be seen as coming from Islam. Many of these
countries do not rule by any kind of Shari'ah (Islamic law) and
introduce their own cultural standpoints on the issue of gender
Islam on the other hand gives men and women different roles and equity
between the two is laid down in the Quran and the example of the
Prophet (peace be upon him). Islam sees a woman, whether single or
married, as an individual in her own right, with the right to own and
dispose of her property and earnings. A marriage gift is given by
the groom to the bride for her own personal use, and she keeps her
own family name rather than taking her husband's. Both men and women
are expected to dress in a way that is modest and dignified. The
Messenger of God (peace be upon him) said: "The most perfect in faith
amongst believers is he who is best in manner and kindest to his
Violence of any kind towards women and forcing them against their
will for anything is not allowed. A Muslim marriage is a simple, legal
agreement in which either partner is free to include conditions.
Marriage customs thus vary widely from country to country. Divorce is
not common, although it is acceptable as a last resort. According to
Islam, a Muslim girl cannot be forced to marry against her will: her
parents simply suggest young men they think may be suitable.
Muslims worship a different God.
Allah is simply the Arabic word for God. Allah for Muslims is the
greatest and most inclusive of the Names of God, it is an Arabic word
of rich meaning, denoting the one and only God and ascribing no
partners to Him. It is exactly the same word which the Jews, in
Hebrew, use for God (eloh), the word which Jesus Christ used in
Aramaic when he prayed to God. God has an identical name in Judaism,
Christianity, and Islam; Allah is the same God worshiped by Muslims,
Christians and Jews. Muslims believe that Allah's sovereignty is to
be acknowledged in worship and in the pledge to obey His teaching and
commandments, conveyed through His messengers and prophets who were
sent at various times and in many places throughout history.
However, it should be noted that God in Islam is One and Only. He,
the Exalted, does not get tired, does not have a son ie Jesus or
have associates, nor does He have human-like attributions as found in
I shall tell u more abt Islam bt nt criticise it bcz u havnt read it !!!

just wanted to mention that Hadith are the sayings of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH)and are taken as guidlines,that is the orders and teachings of Quran explained and how one can practice those teachings in their everyday dealings.
And to say " from these hadiths that we get extremely nonsensical & barbaric rules & laws like death penalty for adulterers & apostates (although the Koran does not advocate any such punishment), degradation of women, bizarre dress codes for women, killing of those who insult Muhammad, chopping of hands of thieves etc."is actually just misguiding and ignorance.
One cannot fully understand Islam without knowledge of QURAN and HADITH. Kindly do some research before answering any question.
