Is Being Human a Sin?

Well, with the growing sense of religious belief all over, are we loosing basic human facts of life? I asked myself this question quite some time ago, when once I was on a street in London, Waiting for a friend. As usual I was listening to music with my headphones on.

I like listening to music with big headphones which have noise cancellation. Alright so I was waiting at Edgware road near marble arch and was quite close to a shop which was selling some Islamic books and Quran Cd’s and medicines.

A few minutes later a guy who was constantly staring at me walks up and asks me weather I am a Muslim, I said yeah, and he insisted me to stop playing the songs on my ipod and listen to quranic verses as listening to music is “haram” (forbidden) in the quran.

I was shocked, and was speechless, that is religion gonna decide what kind of shirt I am gonna wear next???. It is pointless to argue on religion, and I hate to argue on it. Well the only thing that fueled me up and still does is that , why do people become so narrow minded and do not apply logic when it comes to faith and belief, I know its unquestionable, when discussing something so sensitive & as its something really personal. But yet, some kind of sense is really appreciated rather than blind belief/faith…

Peace! 🙂

  1. I agree, completely, we do need space to breathe and be what we ant to be unlike being directed by folks about heaven and hell, it is one’s personal choice to be someone what he desires:)

  2. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I feel that you really should publish a lot more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but generally folks are not enough to speak on these kinds of topics. To the up coming. Cheers

    • Thank you, I shall take that into consideration and will keep posting more on these topics of interest ! 🙂
