Dear Plato

I am very amazed that you are still on the track to find reasons to reject Quran

I am firm on my saying that you are misusing the noble verses of Quran which are there to guide you rather than distract you.

I must say that I strongly believe in Allah. I find him inside me when I feel him helping me, giving me courage, granting me brain to understand and showing me guiding light which others are unable to see.

You claimed several times when you say that Allah has put veil on your heart and you quote verses of your choice. These verses when read in continuity with verses attached to them clearly declare that whoever hesitates and rejects after being revealed the clear logic and proof to understand the presence of Allah, the veil is put on their heart and the verdict is sealed that those people are booked for hell. Allah has sent similar messages from almost 124000 prophets since the beginning of Human era on this earth. People tend to ignore and play with these verses declaring them as illogical and unclear and ambiguous. In fact the verses were not ambiguous but the minds were predetermined to reject them.

You said several times that why Allah gave examples of Sun, Moon, fly, olive etc. For my understanding, when Allah swears on some creation the there is a strong message hidden in them. When you see Sun and you find earth and other planets of this solar system revolve around it anticlockwise and when you see Muslim followers revolving around Ka'aba that too anti clock wise, for me it is a clear sign that the whole system is revolving around one entity that is "Allah. You can closely see atomic structure, you can see cell with nucleus, you can see an egg with a nucleus, you can see a fan with a center, you can see a fulcrum with a center and you can see...and see and see and continue to see

When we see black holes in the universe we should understand that a day will come when possibly our galaxy will be swallowed by this black hole...Read Quran's verses of 56th Surah and Verses 75 onwards.

Allah has revealed several times in Quran that he is properly warning people about the consequences of not believing him as real Lord. You are taking is as threat rather than a warning. Because, ultimate loss will only be yours on the day of judgment from the which you are running away because of foolish logics you build every time.

Most of the people are spending their precious time to prove Quran as wrong. The moment you begin to read Quran with positive perspective you will find all the jigsaw puzzles in your mind arranging quickly.

The verses which are usually used to declare Quran as sending barbaric messages. I believe Allah has all authority to punish who are breaking his laws. We see daily many examples when some lunatic leader declares one person as culprit and bombards the whole population without justification that somebody was innocent among them and they don't even bother to apologize.

As for many questions raised why disbelievers will be thrown to hell only on the sin of not believing Allah as true Lord. The logic is simple. When you apply for Visa or Immigration Visa in particular for some country. You always have to submit your request on a prescribed form with certain portions highlighted which need to be filled compulsorily. Similarly when you want to enter the paradise, you should complete the following formalities.

1. Testifying (Shahada) that Allah is one and accept him as true and only Creator and Cherisher
2. Offer Salah (Prayers) 5 times a day
3. Give Zakat (Compulsory charity on the basis of stocked wealth or property)
4. Fasting (During Holy month of Ramazan)
5. Hajj (Compulsory pilgrimage for those who afford the cost of traveling and staying in Mecca and Madina

Moreover, the rights of other humans are also important to be observed

1. Rights of the Family
2. Rights of the neighbors
3. Rights of the poor and needy
and the list goes on.

Without honoring the requirements mentioned above, nobody can enter paradise but otherwise it is purely Allah's will whom he likes to grant mercy. However, those disbelieved and those who associated unauthorized persons or angels or imaginary entity to him in any equality, they will be liable to be punished with eternal disgrace.

The message is very clear. It is only up to the sane minds that understanding the message in true spirit is the only way for salvation.
