This is how you tell a religion true,

It will never teach to worship any god outside or separate from you.

Through Buddhist meditation one gains self control and self command,

On our virtue and conduct do we walk and stand.

Buddhists practice commandments, paramitas , Brahma viharas, good works and numerous virtues divine,

The practice of these makes Buddhist wisdom shine.

If the Quran says Allah's or God's face is everywhere,
Than why must they face the Kaaba five times for prayer?

Abrahamic religions are false since the divine in themselves they are not taught nor care to see,

But a Buddhist who practices virtues day and night, one of the beautiful faces of God becomes he!

It's obvious from what he said that the reason he converted was due to lacking the ability to comprehend Buddhist teaching. He kept saying that Buddhism is about destroying one self and Islam is about controlling yourself and donate to charity ( lol ! Lol !) etc...

A commenter already pointed out that :

"Common Misconceptions About the Buddha's Teaching: The extinguishment of the fires of lust, hate, and delusion (that arise out of the idea of a separately existing self ) is the end of dukkha. The end of dukkha is the beginning of " the highest happiness" .To put in negative terms, Nibbana is the end of dukkha. To put it in positive terms, Nibbana is " the highest happiness" ( another description the Buddha gives for nibbana in the Dhammapada)."

"Also the Buddha does not teach self-annihilation. After enlightenment a person lives life in a state full of happiness and free from fluctuating emotions that we are faced with in life. The Buddha served as an example of the potential in each being, just like a butterfly is an example of the potential within each caterpillar."

"How do you control yourself without taming the mind ? The Buddha's teaching on purity in words, thoughts, and actions, meditation and the like are practices to tame the mind and discipline ourselves."

So if someone were to replace the black box with a white box is it okay, since the only reason you are facing it is for the purpose of orderliness. If that is the case then a white box wouldn't make any difference and Muslim would not get into a murderous rage for replacing the black box?

No problem at all..the kaba was renevated several times by severel kings and if you look at the kaaba today its covered up with a persian made carpet which has golde and black color..having a white colored or any other colored object in the desert heat of medinah is not a good idea right it would irritate they eye where as black color absorbs the light and thus doesnt reflects it back

Buddhist kings renovate Buddhist monuments and stupas , Muslim king renovate the black box. But that's not what I am talking about. Let's say one day Muslims find that the black box was burned down or stolen by others . Do you just get on and simply get another box?

Its not a "box" its a building its approximately 20-40 foot tall it is made in the form a box. For thousands of years it has been standing without any trouble becouse ALLAH protects it and it is prophesised that this ka'ba will be demolished one day and that would be a sign of the end times. The ka'ba holds no worship significance to it but instead a holy place+guide to prayer direction

Who really cares about a black box sitting in the desert much less wasting time to destroy it.

Should non Muslim do what they want with it because that box is meaningless to non Muslims , and it is not that sacred to Muslims .

When it is the end of time it is the end of time, not because you destroy a black box.

" For orderliness " " that all" ?

Let's be honest, while Muslims tried to put down other people's religious symbols and labeling it " idol worship" they themselves worship a black box .

Attempts to make Christians remove their cross in certain places and deeming it idol worship or destroying other people's religious symbol is a suppression tactic.

Didn't you just say that all Muslims have to face the black box and pray just for the purpose of orderliness , that's all . And now you say that muslim have a belief that destroying the black building is a sign that it is the end of time .

If Muslims need to face a black box and pray , why is it that they condemn others when they face a cross or an image and pray ? Why are others sacred religious symbols desecrated, burned, confisticated, banned , or looted. The Buddha is not an idol, but the Greeks made statues afte the image of Buddha. People pay respect to the Buddha, and his statue can be a mark of worship . But Muslims cannot tell the difference and set out to desecrate others sacred religious symbols.

Muslims lack the ability to understand other's religious symbols are other people's business , or is it the case that the Quran teach them to destroy other people's properties.
