Alhamdillah. I cannot speak about one religion being better than another. Only that whatever path Allah created for you to walk, is the right path for you. Islam means Surrender. As Muslims, we by faith, nature and choice - surrender to the Will of Allah. We freely give up our sense of what is, and are open to seeing through Allah's eyes and understanding. To do so, is to be one with Allah. All that there is really, is Allah. Perhaps because Muslims acknowledge and seek to be Allah's instruments in the world, this is where such thinking stems. Peace. May Allah's blessings be with you. : )

Salam All I will add my comments without repeating what my other brothers added. Islam is a unifying religion i.e. universal. - there is no clergy in Islam ( even though you find Ulama) but there is no class called clergy higher than regular people. - Worship doesn't have to be in a Temple ( mOsque, etc) Prophet said all Earth has been made for me as a Masjid (for doing sujood and prayer). - Islam doesn't conflict with Science, as an example: Look how Astronomy is tightly linked to your daily life; You pray at times related to Sun angle movements. Your fasting, Hajj, Eid, etc..is linked to the Moon's path in sky. - Islam gives you answers to thr Philosophical questions to your existance within the universe, so it gives a taste to your worship which is A WAY OF LIFE, it's not isolated in a church or temple for example. More specifically Islam gives you and encourages you to look for answers to the Universal questions: the W's , i.e. W- What, W- Where ( from and to) W-When?.. and How? etc... this is what I can add.. Keep the discussion open and thank you all

Asalamu alaiakam brother yo your question i would like to add my 2 cent. Islam is just not about praying salah, or fullfilling the 5 pillars or reading the Quran. Alhumdulilah these are part of Islam without them your faith is not complete but Islam covers every aspect of your life. It tells you how to live your daily life by following in the footsteps of our beloved Prophet Muhammad(saw) If you follow the Prophet(saw) in how you eat,sleep,drink you will be rewarded for it but the main point in following the Prophet(saw) is to follow hes character. because he was the best in character(Akhalaq)unfortunely too many of us today emphasise the worship aspect of Islam but we are very negletfull of out character. Islam has spread throughout the world beacause people saw the beutifull character of the muslim's. today people runaway from Islam because our charater is very bad we should try to make our charater beutifull in how we deal with other people. because actions speak louder then words. And for your question why we are the muslim the best ummah because Allah says in His Glorious book {And there may spring from you a nation(ummah) who invite to goodness, and enjoin right conduct and forbid evil. Such are they who are successful}. He also says in another Surah {You are the best nation that has been raised up for mankind, You enjoin right and forbid evil}[ Allah in these Ayahs describes the believers as {They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and enjoin right and forbid evil, and vie one with another in good works. They are of the righteous ones}. so if we fullfill these duties then Insha'Allah we will be the best nation otherwise we cant claim to be the best. may Allah give us the tuafiq to follow He's commands and in follow He's beloved Messenger(saw) aameen.

Asalam aleykum brother Mohammed. I would expect this question from non muslim rather than a muslim, but what the heck :) i will answer it to my ability and experience. - Scientific point Islam is the only religion that still challenges science, non of the things that mentioned in the quran contradicts science ( evolution and atheism isnt science it is a believe, i myself can prove evolution wrong if any one askes, atheism...i dont have enough knowledge on the subject) - Mysticism - islam dosent based on mysticism , but rather on logic and rationalism. Christians asking you to believe, Buddhist asking you to feel, Islam telling you open your eyes and start thinking. - Scripture islam is the only religion that preserved not only original scripture, but also knowledge of the source Muhammed (pbuh) was alive when quran was finished and written (names of sahaby that were involved in composing all verses i one book also known)... - No contradictions in the quran. Myself with a friend we went to christian website with contradictions of te quran, we laughed very hard, cuz all examples that christians brought up were not even worthy of attention of a scholar, even kids would give an answer to them. -Islam is the fastest growing religion. ( i am also convert ) -Most of non muslim world is trying to destroy islam ( it is also proves that muslims are on the right path servants of satan never sleep ) Comparing islam to any other religion is same as comparing surgeon room to a barn. Islam is too pure and selfsuficiant. But muslims... muslims are way too ignorant to see what is best for them, they vote for kerry and bush, they lie in welfare, they abandon prayer and they din... Allahuakbar isla shall rule the world with justice and mercy
