    Murad Hoffmann in Bahrain....

    The renowed German scholar was in Bahrain....
    He served NATO as Information Director and then converted to Islam....
    he travels around the world giving lectures on Islam, especially in Europe....

    this is a text from the local newspaper....

    THE negative fallout from September 11 can be used to educate the world at large about the real Islam, said Dr Hofmann.

    Many people in the West have only just learned that there is such a religion as Islam.

    Sales of Quran translations have sky-rocketed, as have sales of books written on Islam, including those authored by Dr Hofmann.

    "Islam is growing worldwide, as well as in the US," he said.

    "Yet, many people, even in Europe, have just realised that Islam is a religion and that many people in this world are Muslims.

    "So, there is a positive fallout."

    The sale of Quran translations have risen 1,000 per cent in Western countries, while Dr Hofmann's books have had to be reprinted twice, with each re-print constituting 6,000 to 7,000 copies, he said.

    The annual Day of the Open Mosque, held in Germany every October 3, attracted 200,000 people last year, compared with about 60,000 in other years.

    The website of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany is attracting three million hits every month, since September 11, compared with about 100,000 earlier.

    "It's good news in that people are interested, even if they have a negative motivation and this gives us a chance to change that negative approach into sympathy," said Dr Hofmann.

    "Our Lord! forgive us our sins and anything we may have done that transgressed our duty; establish our feet firmly and help us against those that resist faith." Quran(3:147)
    Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.
