Yesterday a Muslim friend mailed me, and said that Islam believes that all human being whether a Muslim or Non-Muslim who do good deeds will go to heaven. He added that Islam is the only religion to believe in that people from other religion will go to heaven. Lets read his mail:
Islam is one of the only religions that believes people from other religions will go to heaven if they are a good person even if they are not Muslim. I believe there are many Muslims that hate radical Muslims because of the bad reputation they give to Islam. I pray you realize that whatever religion you are, making a hateful website like this is not something God, Jesus, Mohammed, Moses, Buddha, etc would approve of. God sent messengers/prophets to show us the way. He purposely did not give all the answers with 100% proof to test our faith of the greater good. Follow your path, lead by example, and don’t put down others in their search to find God. Thanks for taking time to read my email.
Respected friend, I am sorry that I can’t agree with you, as it is very against to your own revealed scripture by Allah. Before making such erroneous claims, go and read what Quran says about this topic. In Quran 3:19 Allah says that only Islam and followers of Islam are accepted in sight of Allah, and Non-Muslims will be punished in hereafter, read the verse:
Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them – out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah , then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account. Quran 3:19
So any Non-Muslim, with any amount of good deeds & noble character can never go to heaven, because of being a Non-Muslim. Allah even goes further in Quran to state that all the Non-Believers are destined to reside in hell forever and are losers. Read Quran 3:85 which says:
And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. Quran3:85
Now I believe that I have successfully refuted your first claim using your own Quran. Another blunder you made by saying, “I believe there are many Muslims that hate radical Muslims because of the bad reputation they give to Islam.” Which is certainly wrong. Few days back a movie was released, ‘Innocence of Islamic Jihad’ , which beautifully explained that there are no moderate Muslims and Radical Muslims. There are practicing Muslims like Jihadi Osama Bin Laden, and non-practicing Muslim like APJ Abdul Kalam (Former President of India), so it would be wrong to say that many Muslim hate Radical Muslim. The truth is that those who hate radical Muslims are no Muslims. True Islam is followed by Talibanis and Laskhars and rest Muslims are not aware of real teaching of Islam.
Next you said, “I pray you realize that whatever religion you are, making a hateful website like this is not something God, Jesus, Mohammed, Moses, Buddha, etc would approve of. ” Brother how is my site hateful? Is showing what Muslims do hateful? Most of the news in my site is about the actions of the followers of religion of peace, in this case I can’t help anyone. Muslims will keep killing in name of Allah, and I’ll keep publishing their news here. Hateful is what Muslims are doing in this peaceful world, killing innocent non-Muslims because they are non-Muslims.
Rest I’ll leave you with what world renowned Islamic scholar, ‘Zakir Naik’ says about this topic:
