You do not know Arabic our dear Taj

>Rather than "prove you wrong", which seems so pejorative, I will simpy correct your mistatements.

We shall see

>First, there are several reasons why your assertion that the Quran says Islam is only for hijazi Arabs is incorrect:

>1) there is actually no such verse in the Quran that states such.

Well the Qur'an says: wa ma arsalna min rasulan ila bilisani qawmuhu. Do you know what this means? It means that your Allah sends a rasul that speaks the language of his own people. Muhammad was sent to his people the Hijazi Arabs because he spoke their language Arabic that is. This means that Islam is indeed the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only (and remember that we are told in the Islamic tradition that your Allah sent 120,000 to various nations). So who was the rasul that was sent to your Hindu ancestors because he ain't Muhammad

If you want more Quranic evidence then just ask. And the Hijazi Arabs that invaded the Middle East realized that Islam was indeed the religion of the arabs and this is why they had the concept of al-wali wa al-mawali which means that those wannabe arabs that wanted wanted to join in looting their won people, and wanted to convert to Islam they must find an Arab wali to sponsor them and they can become Arabs first and then convert to islam. How come you did not know that?

>2) Your assertion fails to account for the occurence of Muslims who were (and are) not al hijazi or even Arabs, such as Bilal, Salman al Farsi,

Really? So a Bilal and a Salman al-Farsi really existed? And what is your source? The bogus sira or the anachronistic hadith?

>or the contemporary fact that Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country in the world - rendering your assertion somewhat moot

Wrong. The people of Indonesia were converted by ignorant and wannabe Arab tablighees from India not unlike you. And do you know why the concept of al-wali wa al-mawali did not work in India? there was just too many Hindus and very few Arabs. How come you did not know that?

>The explanation fo 14:4 is self explanatory - that a prophet would bring teachings in the tongue of his people only makes rational sense with regard to the intent of said teachings being understood.

Corrcect and Muhammad was sent to his people the Hijazi Arabs. So who was the rasul that was sent to your people because he ain't Muhammad?Let me guess: rama or is it ganesh?

>In other words, it would make no sense for Muhammad to reveal the Quran in Chinese,

Right. So who is the rasul of the Chinese because he ain't Muhammad?

> nor would this render God as very "compassionate". Of course, this verse does not even state that Islam is only for hijazi arabs.

Then how do you explain that your Allah says that he sends a rasul to his own people because he speaks their language and after all he did not speak any Chinese.

In a rebuttal of your above assertion, the Quran states: "Qul: ya ayuhan-Nas...Inna Rasulullahi ilaikum jami'an" ...

Our dear Taj you ain't an Arab and do you know why? because your transliteration is poor. Let me correct it: Qul ya ayuha al-nass inna rasulu Allahi ilaikum jami'an (sic) ( I susepct that this word is from the root JM3 or coming together as in ta3amu3) so where would I find this aya in the Qur'an as I need to read the original Arabic.

But wait:

1 Where does it say in the above aya that this rasul is Muhammad? Let me help you. It does not.

2. Allah spoke to me via an angel called Gabriel and I have a book for you. You think that this rasul in the above aya might be me?

3. al-nass means the poeple and if your Allah would have said: al-bashar or mankind/womankind you would have a case

I suggest that you stick to Urdu

>there are of course several other verses that can be cited with regard to the universal intent of Islam...

Really? Could you name one? So where does it say in the Qur'an

Qul ina Abul Qasim (Muhammad"s Kunya) rasulan li kuli al-bashar

Let me help you: you will never find such aya in the Qur'an

And like I said: You are here defending the imperialism of the arabs and for this I say: shame
