Mansoor , you wrote:

>>… I hope you understand that when you use new version of a software you have to use new manual for that rather than using old manual for new version. Similarly Bible was long outdated, corrupted, changed, reformed and the original scriptures were hidden, destroyed, or not kept in secured hands....thus the manual of Jesus's era lost its credibility and couldn't be found in one piece. You are still unable to resolve the vast differences between OTs and NTs and ocean of difference between Greek and Hebrew Scriptures.<<

Mansoor, this comparison of Allah's manual with computer manuals should have alerted you to the fact Allah's book is no better than such manuals that get outdated. You are saying that Allah created and sent many manuals to earth but all soon got outdated or lost or corrupted. How can any book or instruction of Allah get outdated, lost or corrupted? Where was Allah's power of foresight when he sent down the bible? Did Allah's powers also evolve and reached its peak with Muhammad? LOL.

>>Accepting Quran as the final revelation is more logical due to availability of complete scriptures which is in its original language of revelation "the Arabic" the ever living language which is vast, rich and understood since centuries.<<

Why do you consider accepting something as divinely inspired because the complete scripture is available in its original language as logical? There are other scriptures like the Guru Granth Sahib which are available in the complete form in the original language. Why don't the Sikhs crow from the rooftops that they possess the only true revelation?

>>One thing more, you said we worship Muhammad (PBUH) is a wrong impression, we follow him but worship Allah.<<

If you do not worship him then why does the most important sentence in Islam, the shahada, include Muhammad's name in it?
