Right Islam or Wrong Islam vs. Islam and non-Islam
The correct title of this subject should be Islam or non-Islam. There has always been one Islam, which was decreed for Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad. All the scriptures revealed to mankind from God advocate one and the same religion. This religion God calls Submission or in Arabic Islam
The word Muslim is an Arabic word which simply means Submitter to God Alone. Anyone who submits to the will of God is Muslim in the Quranic context. According to the Quran, a righteous Jew, a righteous Christian, a righteous Muslim or any righteous person is Muslim in the eye of God (2:62, 5:69).
[2:62] Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who (1) believes in GOD, and (2) believes in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, will receive their recompense from their Lord. They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
The Arabic word Islam simply means Submission (to the will of God). So, anyone who follows the religion of Islam is Muslim. The concept of Islam can easily be derived from this verse of the Quran (42:13)
[42:13] He decreed for you the same religion decreed for Noah, and what we inspired to you (Mohammad) , and what we decreed for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: "You shall uphold this one religion, and do not divide it." The idol worshipers will greatly resent what you invite them to do. GOD redeems to Himself whomever He wills; He guides to Himself only those who totally submit.
The above Quranic verses, along with numerous other verses, confirm the truth that as far as God is concerned, there has always been one religion Islam, which was decreed for Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad. All the scriptures revealed to mankind from God advocate one and the same religion. This religion God calls “Submission” or in Arabic language “Islam”. It is a mistaken concept among Muslims and non-Muslims alike that Islam was founded by Mohammad, who happened to be an Arab. Satan successfully duped majority of people on earth by making them believe that Islam is an Arab religion or a religion of Mohammad!
Submission to God as a religion is also described as Monotheism (in Arabic Hanifeyah) (3:67, 6:79, 10:105, 98:5) The principal command from God in all scripture is to worship God Alone, devoting all the religious practices to Him and rejecting all other idols(example: Jesus, Mohammad, Mary, Ali, St. Judah, Pope, Priest and so on)
Torah - "You shall have no other god besides Me." (Exodus 20:3)
Gospel - "I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no god." (Isaiah 44:6)
Quran - "You shall know that "There is no other god besides God." (Muhammad 47:19)
Submission to God (in Arabic Allah) is the religion whereby we recognize God's absolute authority, and reach an unshakable conviction that God alone posses all power; no other idol possesses any power that is independent of God. The above Quranic verse (42:13) confirms that the religion that was revealed to Mohammad through the Final Testament (Quran) is not different from what was given to the previous prophets.
The Quran is the final message of God to all the people, not just Muslims or Arabs. The Quran has message for Jews, Christians, idol-worshipers, Arabs, Muslims, atheist, and for all the people on earth. One of the messages about righteous Jews or Christians is stated above (2:62, 5:69) One of the messages about unrighteous Arabs is (9:97).
[9:97] The Arabs are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy, and the most likely to ignore the laws that GOD has revealed to His messenger. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.
When Mohammad died, he left behind only one book, the Quran for us to follow. Sadly, as time passes by, the great religion of Islam, which was preached by Mohammad with the Quran, has been gradually corrupted and divided and sub-divided through other books of innovations and traditions preached by so-called Islamic scholars. In the beginning, the religion of Islam has been reshaped and replaced mainly by two major religions of Sunni and Shia. Subsequently, these two major religions have been divided into various other sects and sub-sects as time passes by. The Quran condemns these divisions (6:159, 23:52-53). Sadly, majority of us follow the same path of the majority of so-called Jews and Christians.
A few hundred years after the death of Moses, the majority of Jews fabricated Misnah (hadith) and Gemarrah (sunnah), which are the traditions attributed to their prophet. Misnah and Gemarrah jointly called Talmud, is the source of their religious guidance instead of the Old Testament or Torah, which is the revealed word of God. Three hundred years after the death of Jesus, the so-called Christian scholars fabricated the concept of Trinity. The fabrication of Trinity is the primary source of belief for the majority of Christians today, in defiance of New Testament, which advocates the absolute worship of God Alone. History repeats itself! Majority of us follow the same path of the majority of so-called Jews and so-called Christians! 200 years after the death of Mohammad, Bukhari wrote the first book of hadith and attributed it to Mohammad. Today, all religious teachings of majority of us come from these man-made books of so-called hadith and sunnah instead of the Quran!
[5:69] Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the converts, and the Christians; any of them who (1) believe in GOD and (2) believe in the Last Day, and (3) lead a righteous life, have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve
We witness that people adopted man made teachings for their religious guidance instead of God's scripture. We witness fighting between Catholic and Protestant, Shia and Sunni in the name of so-called man made religions.
We witness the massacre of Jews in German and Muslims in Bosnia in the name of religion.
[5:69] Surely, those who believe, those who are Jewish, the converts, and the Christians; any of them who (1) believe in GOD and (2) believe in the Last Day, and (3) lead a righteous life, have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.
Thanks and may God guide us,

RIGHT ISLAM or WRONG ISLAM
Now-a-days, when the Religious Fundamentalism, Extremism, and Fanaticism (wrongly attributed to Islam) is rampant and on the rise, you may have heard things such as Saudi Arabia is following harsh version of Islam or such and such countries are following liberal Islam. These are all nonsense talks. There is nothing like modern or traditional, liberal or orthodox, soft or harsh version of Islam.
THERE IS ONLY ONE VERSION OF ISLAM – RIGHT OR WRONG
The True Islam is embodied in the Quran alone which is followed nowhere in the world.
All that you see around being practiced in the name of Islam is absolutely out of the Quran.
If you have any doubts then get a copy of the Quran and confirm it yourself. I quote a few commandments from the Quran that might help you in finding the truth.
1- The Muslims will conduct their affairs through mutual consultation – (42:38)
2- They will share their earnings with their employees so that they may live on equality basis - (16:71)
3- They will establish justice in the Land – (5:8)
4- They will stop mischief on earth because God likes not the mischief – (2:205)
5- They will work for the unity of mankind – (2:213)
6- Their main objective is to work for the welfare of mankind – (3:110)
DO YOU FIND ANYONE OF THESE COMMANDMENTS BEING PRACTICED IN ANY PART OF THE MUSLIMS’ WORLD???
Now consider this:
AL-SALAT is one of the basic pillars of Islam. Those who establish Al-Salat are called MUSSALEEN. I quote a few of their attributes from The Quran as follow;
1- They are those in whose wealth is a recognized right for needy and deprived people.
2- They are those who guard themselves against fornication and adultery. (70:29)
3- They are those who respect and fulfil their trusts and covenants. (70:32)
4- They are those who stand firm by their testimonies. (70:33)
DO YOU FIND THESE ATTRIBUTES AMONG MUSSALEEN???
If your answer for both of the above questions is NO – then trust me and believe there is no true Islam anywhere in the world.
