Keith, you wrote:

>>Please let me share Ayat Al-Kursee with you:

In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful.

Allah, there is no god but he,
the living, the self-subsisting; eternal,
no slumber can seize him, nor sleep,
his are all things in the heavens and on earth,
who is it that can intercede in his presence except as he permits,
he knoweth what appears to his creatures as before, or after, or behind them,
nor will they compass aught of his knowledge except as he willeth,
his throne doth extends over the heavens and on earth,
and he feelth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them,
for he is the most high, the supreme in glory
(Quran 2:255)<<

This does not sound as though they are Allah's words, it feels as though someone else is talking about Him.

Regards

Plato
