    sikhism does not teach that there is only one correct religion. i know my religion is the right one for ME, because i can feel it in my heart. :) God is not subject to scientific proofs... faith is something you have to FEEL, not dissect with logic. :)

    and yes, i've seen the "proof" that the qur'an is from allah. very interesting stuff. i suppose i could make up "scientific proof" that Gurbani is from Waheguru, but what would be the point? i already know it is. :)

    But How do you know your right? I suggest you read a book on critical thinking, a very good read.

    Amazon.com: Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking (8th Edition): Books: Neil Browne,Stuart Keeley

    i hope i am not offending u.

    how do i know i'm right? how do you know your favorite food? :) i just KNOW. faith is not about science or logic, it's something we feel in our hearts. and i've confirmed my feelings through meditation and prayer, not through experiments or equations.

    thanks for the book suggestion, but trust me, no book on critical thinking is going to make me convert to islam. :) i'm a strong feminist - and sikhism considers me equal to any man. hey wait, i guess that's one logical reason i'm a sikh. :)

    This is a typical misconception about islam, that women is not equal. But did you know that most reverts in the uk to islam is middle class white women? did u know that most reverts all around the world are islam, below is one of the sources, but i can get plenty more if you want me to, listen to some of their stories! I am only trying to tell you the truth, hope you dont mind.

    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    Whatever questions u have i can find answers for, thats if you want the answers.

    I dont know how to spell her name but ivone ridle, or something like that, find her story and see how women really are treated in islam.

    People dont realise what they are getting them selves into, trust me!

    Kay, i have read the qur'an. i know many muslim women. i agree that there is a misconception that women are mistreated in islam, however it is false to call women "equal" in your religion. women and men are given seperate distinct roles in islam. in sikhism, all humans are equal. this is a critical difference.

    but there are MANY more reasons that i'm happy to be Sikh, so please stop trying to convince me otherwise. :)

    thanks!

    majority of non muslim women who converts to islam is because of their muslim husbands.It does not mean that they like islam.

    as far converts are concerned it is a big myth that islam is gaining fastest converts.
    Fastest growing religion - WikiIslam

    According to the World Christian Encyclopaedia, between 1990 and 2000, Islam received around 865,558 converts each year. This compares with an approximate 2,883,011 converts each year for Christianity during the same period.[3]

    Shiekh Ahmed Katani : "In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity. These numbers are very large indeed".
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
