Salam,

Fatima, you wrote:

>>about that accusation of islam being sent to arabs only . you can check my comment to dhimmi or (the prophets 107 ) of the holy Qurran<<

dhimmi is much better qualified than me to reply on this matter. I will leave it to him.

>>and about Allah terrorizing us ( sons of adam ) yes he might said that . he did terrorize the non beleivers with HELL which he created for them . and i think hell was mentioned in bible and the jewish book as well .<<

Some more progress, Fatima, your admitting that Allah tends to terrorise unbelievers. One little question about Allah terrorising his own creatures. Why does he have to do that when He could have created them not to be unbelievers. Is it necessary and inevitable that He terrorise us? Doesn't He have a choice in the matter. He could have made us believers and avoided the charge of being a terrorising deity.

Yes, hell is mentioned in all monotheistic religions otherwise what can God do with all the people He gets mad at for silly crimes like not believing in Him.

>>IF you think that Allah ( God ) has no right to do so.. then you can tell him that .. we muslims beleive that He Almighty is the creator of us and everything and he is the Greatest ..<<

Allah has every right to terrorise unbelievers since He claims He owns them body and soul. What is problematic is His claiming that He is the most beneficent, most merciful Being. Don't you think that is a dishonest claim considering that He terrorises unbelievers, even those who commit no crime except refuse to believe in Him.

>>.. and i have to make clear that we muslims don't worship God out of fear .. we worship thee out of love .<<

Fatima, the Koran itself says that Allah makes your flesh creep because of fear of Him. Can anyone love a being who inspires that kind of fear?Read this verse:

039.023 YUSUFALI: Allah has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book, consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear their Lord tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of Allah's praises. Such is the guidance of Allah: He guides therewith whom He pleases, but such as Allah leaves to stray, can have none to guide.

What kind of beautiful message is it that makes your skin tremble with fear of the Lord? The Lord even tells you why it will tremble later on when He says He guides only those whom He pleases. Naturally you tremble in fear that you will not receive His guidance.

>>I know it might be so hard for a non muslim to understand that but well maybe one day you will :)<<

Yes, when Allah decides to guide me if He pleases I will. Maybe.

>> ISLAM is sent by ALLAH…... and it is a religion for the whole humanity cause heaven and hell were made for whole humanity and the whole humanity shall witness the judgement day and be judged<<

I can see that this heaven and hell you talk of are right here. The Muslims mostly live in hell and are constantly trying to escape to less hellish places in the West and elsewhere.

Regards

Plato
