Re: [mukto-mona] Oh! the Thrill of Gambling (a wondering thought)

Islam allows looting;

>>>>>>> Not true.

Also Jesus son of Mary (PBUH) spoke against Money changers which is ALSO prohibited in Islam.Which deals with riba or interest based money leading.

"most religions do not sanction these types of activities."  Not true, in Hinduism, Dharmaputra Yudisthira staked even his wife on gambling; Islam allows looting; Jesus spoke against money changers, but not against the gamblers.

We sometime commit resources in our personal lives purely based on faith. We do it in quest of some sort of gain. This is gambling. Even though people may get handsomely rewarded sometimes, mostly they lose it all. This is why gambling businesses do exist on the face of the earth. Everybody knows this fact, yet - most of us do it anyway. We do it for fun and excitement. It brings thrill of winning and agony of failure. The key is to control the extent of gambling. It's like investing in the stock exchange; you do it with the money you can afford to lose. There is no gambling without risk. May be that's why most religions do not sanction these types of activities. But, wait a minute! Isn't religion one such faith also? Isn't religion the biggest gambling endeavor in our lives? Shouldn't we keep it under control also to enjoy the thrill and excitement of this gambling activity.

N. B. I believe religion could be a fun thing in our lives if we could keep it under control.
