in response to reader comment: Islam true success

Submitted by Kafir (India), Oct 19, 2008 at 10:01

Dear Brother Zamir

I choose to reply to you because you are extremely polite and seemingly you have a very good heart. Now chose quoted the Surah Qul ya Ayyuhal-Kafirun, but do you really know what it means. I suppose not. Since your are born Muslim you will know that it is impossible to understand the Qumran without reading the Tafsir. For this purpose I would like you to refer to a good Tafsir like say that by Ibn Khatir.

Surah Qul ya Ayyuhal-Kafirun does not preach equality or tolerance. It rather shows the disgust of Muhammad when people of Mecca did not listen to his message. Furthermore this Sure was abrogated later on, and your can read Sirat Al Rasool Allah. Islam is based on the premise that it is the true and only religon from God, hence the wuestion of equality and tolerence does not arise at all.

I request you to kindly pay attention to the hundreds of verses that ask Muslims to kill the kuffar. You would be well advised to read the collections of Sahih Bukhari, Muslim and Dawood.

Try to reflect on them with an open mind and then think on the following:
1. Can God be so hateful?
2. Can the messenger of God be such as he was?

Here is another list of questions for you my brother, try to find their answers:

  1. Does the Qur'an define the word "Allah"? No.

  44. Do the Jews say that the Muslim "Allah" is their God too? No
  45. Then whose god is Allah? Paganism

If it is truth you seek, find the answers and you will know what we are following who we are following. You told me in your last post that I would not understand because Aim an Indian pagan. Well, what do you think we are following? Its nothing but Arabic paganism. So we abandon our false beliefs and take up a foreign false belief.
Dear brother try to reflect on these views. Can God send a religion of hate and can God send a religion. How old do you think civilization is.........?
There are hundreds of questions that will arise in your mind once you free yourself.

Why I left Islam is a long story and I don't wish to make it public on a Forum such as this.
I would also advice you to go to www.faithfreedom.org, www.answeringislam.com, www.prohetofdoom.net and read it with an open mind.

I could go on like this But I would rather see you search for the answers yourself. Do not trust anyone on this but your own self.
Best Regards
