Creation of Man

Reader comment on item: Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad
in response to reader comment: Fatima: This is our debating style because we have borrowed it from the the Koran.

Submitted by Imam Ahmed Syeed Ali Muhammed (United States), Apr 2, 2008 at 12:34

God created man with a specific purpose don't you agree, Plato? In the Qur'an he tells the Angels that he is going to create Mankind to be a Khalifah on the Earth. He created us unique from everything else in that we have a soul, and free will. So we have the choice to believe in God, or to disbelieve, and with those choices there are consequences. When we follow a life indulging in what is wrong, and evil, then it will come back to harm us, However when we follow a life according to God's will, He guides us to a better life. One that is blessed, and full of success.

I'm not trying to change your mind about what you feel the Qur'an says, We both have our own interpetations about it, and that's ok.
