L̶i̶b̶e̶r̶a̶l̶ Apostate mosque in Berlin draws criticism from Muslim world

“The high number of Muslims frightens Europe, and for that reason the Europeans are attempting to market a new form of Islam that conforms to life in Europe,” wrote Manhal al-Ahmad on DW’s Arabic Facebook page. “I believe that they won’t achieve their goal. In the end they will give up and eventually come to understand that this fight against this religion was wrong.”

The impression still exists in Muslim countries that the West wants to impose its lifestyle on the Muslim world, according to Rainer Sollich, head of DW Arabic’s online department. “Those who oppose all reformist ideas within Islam are also taking advantage of this agenda,” he said. “It’s a very populist agenda. It works, because many people in the Muslim world are jumping on it and many genuinely feel that way.”

    The Danger in Islamic Prayer

    A deep hatred and rejection of Judaism and Christianity are hardwired into Islamic doctrine, including the Koran. Many of its chapters are incorporated into mandatory daily Islamic prayer. The very first Koranic chapter, considered the most exalted of all chapters, is a prayer directed to Allah asking him to keep Muslims away from the misguided path of Jews and Christians. This chapter is a necessary part of the five mandatory daily prayers, and is recited not once, but anywhere from 17 to 100 times a day by devout Muslims (or in a broader sense, 6200 to 36,500 times a year).
