in response to reader comment: Mansoor: Dissecting your posts sentence by sentence is not dodging

Once again Plato! your are caught in your denial practice.

The post you sent has already given so many answers which are enough to prove your sanity level!

You said I twisted the question on Bamian issue..which I certainly did not...I amply answered in the light of similar actions which you are unable to prove as justified...so why pointing finger on Bamian???? I can throw several more examples....the burning of Church and killing of Missionary Graham Staines and his two sons...Wow...you would close your eyes with black tape...and say...oh its not related with Bamian...How mean you are...It exactly relates...because it is related to religious tolerance..!!! I repeat I said that I cannot support Bamian issue…but I have full support of Actions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) upon the issues of destroying the idols. They were truly following Allah's commandment and instructions and they complied to that!!

Excerpts

POLICE reinforcements were rushed to the Indian state of Orissa yesterday after Hindu mobs burned down 15 Christian churches in the worst outbreak of religious violence in the area since Australian missionary Graham Staines and his two sons were burned to death eight years ago.

What is your answer???? would you again twist my arms...and call me a negative minded person...no you can't because you are out of bullets...and nothing you can prove...

You repeatedly raised questions about the age gap and circumstances of Marriages of my beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Although I replied you amply and justified that marriages were properly under commandments from Lord and permitted to Prophet Muhammad. I also gave you reference of Bible for your satisfaction where Prophets were allowed to keep concubines and wives and even the scripture you follow had no objection. I don't want to repeat again and again what I have clarified very amply. I have no cure for your ill mind because your perception is highly maligned. Even after knowing the Islamic view, converting the fact and declaring it with negative approach is all your own judgment.

Excerpts

All Muslims had to abide with this divine command. Thus, they kept only four wives and divorced the rest. The situation for the Prophet was quite different as he was the only one allowed to keep his marriages. This was for one simple reason that his wives were not allowed to marry after him. Therefore, it would be inhuman for those noble ladies to stay the rest of their lives unmarried, while most of them were in their teenage, twenties or thirties.

It is true that each of those marriages was for a certain reason, either to honor a friend by marrying his daughter - in case of `A'isha and Hafsa - or to help a wretched woman...

The way he married a 9-year-old girl was not out of the norms of both time and place, specially when you know that the girls of this region - desert - till now reach their puberty in an early time - nine and ten years old. So it was not an act of harassment to `A'isha or violation of her innocence, but it was a norm that would put a girl to shame if she waited any longer after this age without getting married. Notice that her sister Asmaa was married to Az-Zubayr at the age of eleven, and so did most of the girls at that time without even considering the age gap between the bride and groom.

Actually, there was a need for the Prophet to marry a girl at this age, in order to live long after his death to teach people lessons from his private life that only a wife would have witnessed. Thus, his many marriages and his marriage to a young girl were not something weird or to be ashamed of or even apologized for, from the criterion of his time as it may be now.

Plato! Your problem is that you are unaware of the importance of commandments of your creator. Muslims, submitted their personal will to follow the commandments. They don't feel ashamed or intimidated. Human minds have limited competency and you cannot understand the logic and long term impact attached to certain actions purely taken under God's instructions. I know disbelievers like you would like to cash in on the issues which for you look ugly.

Allah will provide you ample opportunity to understand and realize the truth of a religion endorsed for us. But if you still show restrain then…Allah instructs us to deliver you the following verses.

109. The Disbelievers

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[109:1] Say, ―O disbelievers, [109:2] I do not worship that which you worship, [109:3] nor do you worship the One whom I worship. [109:4] And neither I am going to worship that which you have worshipped, [109:5] nor will you worship the One whom I worship. [109:6] For you is your faith, and for me, my faith.‖
