yeah youre right. youre catching on. you are unbeliever cuz HE willed it is right. but do you realize that HE also wills that you are too stupid to realize that HE has given you the capability to ask HIM for guidance and so you are unabale to even wish to be a bekliever. i can go on whooping so its really upto you. its your life, and if you are openly admitting to your own flaws one can only wonder what is keeping you from improving your condition. whatever does happen and does not, all is by HIS will.

hey at least we agree on one thing.

well, logic we humans use isnt universal. so yeah it is a matter of accepting different logic to see the truth. because the truth, unlike us, is not trapped in small logic comprehensible to the mere mind. ALLAH led people through changing times until now. ALLAH had o bring the change gradually. and it is solely for our benefit. HE is not a tyrant that demands total obedience in one swoop. HE readies us for it and then demands it. ALLAH says in the quran that we would not be able to understand the revelation if it was revealed in one go ltogether. HE could do it altogether in one go but it isnt about that. its about HIM guiding us in an easier way. a way that is good for us. ALLAH familiarized ourselves with our own virtues and shortcomings and so revealed his messages slowly. its a sign of kindness.

and i believe even your logic would behoove you to appreciate kindness with thanks. not insolent criticism.

Muhammad never said beat women. i am muslim and i know this for a fact. not even the prisoners. in fact the prisoners are to be treated better than your own friends. and are to be fed betterthan ones own people. this is islamic law. do you have this law? did anyone ever have this law before this?

and even if ALLAH ordered men to beat women like animals, which HE does not, and in fact forbids, who are we to criticize it ? HE made us HE has all the right over us. and can thus deal with us accordingly. if ALLAAH did order us to beat women then HE would do it after they are deserving of it. this isnt something we can detect.

why? how? where? why would the sky be blue and not green or red? who ordered ozone to have a bluish hue than green or red? why do we havve grass that is green and not blue? did yo program chlorophyll to be green? or did ALLAH? so the same ALLAH who does these does that. HE can create unbelievers if HE so wants. becasue HE is GOD HE can. HE answers to no one. all answer to HIM alone. and HE is just. if some people HE created to be in hell, then surely HE created them evil to begin with. so i think we dont need our own small understanding of things to judge ALLAH with. thats why not anythng can be GOD. only GOD is GOD this is basic truth. so if its all about HIM, then whatever HE does he has a right to do. and only HE has that right.

hey like i said. ALLAH knows our secrets and hearts. people that seem good outwardly all their lives can be evil inside. people that are good can commit crimes but later realize theur flaws. so youre saying itsn ot ok for GOD to judge them accoring to their true natures? these are things that HE knows best and not you or me. so can we please do ourselves a big favour and stop playing judge and jury? when it is us who are subjected to judgement ourselves.

you can stock up a bunker of sneeze guard if you wish. if ALLAH willed you would still sneeze, even if you had no nose or had any holes big enough for a horse to jump out of. and yes, it is scary. but dont be afraid, ALLAH is most merciful, most compassionate.
