>When we read Paradise Lost, we feel that Milton is a devout Muslim.

>When we read Paradise Lost, we feel that Milton is a devout Muslim. This is reflected in his rejection of Prelates and their mediation between God and His Creatures. You also find Milton as a lover of life on earth. He interprets the Bible and practical and personal ways. He advocates divorce and considers man superior to woman. He also hates the rituals of the church and the icons. He draws on the Old Testament, not the New Testament. For these reasons, I have already said that Milton was not a Christian, but rather a pious Muslim.

    A lot of that is just typical protestant stuff. Paradise Lost draws more on the Old Testament than the new because it's literally an adaptation of Genesis, but he still tries to insert Jesus into the story as much as possible, and there are also many more subtle allusions to the New Testamenr that this author may have missed.

      Quran 4:34.

      Men are the protectors and maintainers of women1 because Allah has made one of them excel over the other, 2 and because they spend out of their possessions (to support them).

    >Dr Islam Issa 's book, Milton in the Arab Muslim World, explores the impact the work of 17th Century poet John Milton had on major events in the region such as the Arab Spring and the Syrian Uprising of 2011.

      Honestly once you realize just how prevalent co-mingled white worship and resentment of Europeans is in MENA and India… changes your view of the world.

        Americans focus on the black(ed) kangz but arabo-muslo-centrism wewuzzery is great comedy. It's much worse than the similar stuff that Germans or israelites ever wrote.
        Everyone they like was somehow a secret muslim and the whole thing is drenched in a weirdo mixed inferiority/superiority complex like says.

      >We must behead all devout Muslims who split hairs on any single hadith differently than we do, they are infidels the same as any other
      In all honesty, and however obvious (yet evidently controversial in some circles) it is to say, the Muslims saying this are a smaller (by definition) yet louder minority. However, I am not the OP, am not a Muslim, and am not “shilling for Islam”, however that’s interpreted here. These stupid arguments about “religion” (in fact, a thinly veiled debate about politics and race, in most cases) don’t interest me.

      Note: I’m not saying or even clearly implying anything like:
      >you should convert to Islam
      Or
      >Muslims are entirely innocent and never do anything wrong

      Nevertheless, some simple statements of fact (as, “Not all Muslims think like this, that anyone differing from them in the interpretation of even a single thing like the interpretation of a Hadith should be executed”) is liable to face some controversy.

      On yet another level of this conversation, it’s worth saying both the core theology and mysticism of the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (commonly called “the Abrahamic faiths” simply for this similarity and this common origin) are often convergent enough, while, again, overlapping in their origins, that to declare a similarity approaching equivalence of an artist, writer or thinker of one of these three traditions with another one of these traditions, isn’t as ridiculous as it seems to sound to some posters here.

      How much influence did Aquinas receive from Muslim theologians like Averroes, for instance? It’s not an insignificant influence. For all I’m concerned, israelites, Muslims, and Christians are “beating each other over the head for being people who beat each other over the head”, both from a historical perspective, and from a contemporary perspective solely looking at current events. It’s the narcissism of small differences.
