    Welcome back Mr Zaid. I hope that Saudis will stop murdering our or/and their Yemeni brethren too! Since all those who believe in Allah, His Prophets, His books, His Angels and the day of judgement and do right are all Muslims, the details of which are mentioned in Holy Quran 2:177. The Quran instructs us to invite people of the book to come to common terms. So as Muslims brothers and sisters let’s all come to common terms by adhering to the Quran and let it be our guide because Allah has promised to guard (only) Quran against corruption till the end. We as humans have had been trying to find middle ways in everything and to that effect we have not even left the Quran intact; means we all have interpreted Quran in various ways and our secondays books “negh al balagha and hadees” have been used to do so, while actually the Quran should have been used to interpret our secondays books! I just wonder if the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) were alive today, would he allow this bloodshed to happen, all in the name of religion? LET’S US ALL BE SANE ENOUGH TO DRAW A LINE BETWEEN RELIGION AND POLITICS!
