Say, “Produce your proof, if you should be truthful.” Quran 2:111
I watched the following documentary on youtube:
Inside Saudi Arabia: The Fall Of The Crown Prince? (Culture Documentary) | Real Stories
I felt the documentary was overall balanced and did not go to extremes.
It was not offensive, and it showed enough to highlight some issues of concern.
However, I felt that the documentary failed to ask for the Quranic reference/s.
Each time one of the interviewees was asked about a wrong that was happening in the country, they would argue that it was their culture, or that it was not their decision to make … or that it was sanctioned by the Quran.
He could have asked: “Where in the Quran, does it say that?”
He never did.
Many have fallen by execution in those lands.
Many have been taken to prison without due process.
That clearly is against the teachings of the Quran.
“And do not take the life of a person which Allah has forbidden, except by right” Quran 17:33
Since when was Islam against women driving?
Where is it in the Quran that she cannot drive? Or for that matter, where is it in the hadith?
Bombing a neighbouring country, isn’t that against the teachings of the Quran?
“Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress.
Indeed, Allah does not like transgressors.” Quran 2:190
Extreme wealth of the few and the poverty of the majority, that also is not in line with the teachings of the Quran.
These extreme abhorrent state of affairs is not just seen in the ‘middle east’, but it is also found in other places around the globe.
The world in now almost united in its ills.
Open your eyes and you shall see!
