religious knowledge has to be solid and unvarying. it has to be firm and stern in speaking the truth about things and its idea is not to cater to the different whims of different people. religion seeks to find a common ground in all man and thus speaks uncompromising truth that cannot be modified or changed to meet their small individual and seperate demands. so the hindu way of life is nothing but a bunch of confused ways which does nothing but glorify the different whims and likings of diferent people? i always thought religion is from GOD and so it seeks to turn men to GOD and not tell people that they can do whatever they want. no wonder hindus are pagans.
religion underlines devotion to the one and only god. if you served and loved god alone you would not try to find an option to his commands.saying that you accept different worldviews means you consider religion to be nothing but an opinion.if you cant even find a sure way of communicating with god because you really dont know what he wants from you, then what good is your religion? so clearly there is a difference that sticks out like a burning bush between muslims and hindus : muslims serve GOD alone while hindus serve his servants.
the reason for our submission is HE is GOD and i am HIS slave. and i am fully ecstatic to know of it. man feels god even before he touches religion. in islam, ALLAH simply answers our prayers and literally spoonfeeds us with instructions and duties. HE does not leave anything twisting in the air but tells us the dos and donts clearly without us being in risk of ignorance. ALLAH tells us those things which we like to hear about himself in quran. for man to be happy he must know god. in islam, we just dont know god, we remember him in deeds and words.
no, muslims are not banned from asking anything but the quran. this is simply your imaginary angle against us. what this ayah means is that we shouldnt bother too much about things ALLAH did not give a direcct order about. like is shrimp halal or haram. or is it ok to wear trousers instead of a long cloth. because people, as little as they are, find quarrels about the tiniest of things. and their wandering mind can lead them astray by making them do things that could be harmful to them or lead them to error. so about things unclear, we dont bother. this is ALLAH's command.
you are making this too easy for me. so the sperm does not come from the spine? really? if i proved it to you would you reconsider islam?
sperms do come from between the spine and the 12th or 13 th rib. that place is called the abdominal aorta. got it? look up an anatomy or medical book. when you were in your moms womb your sexual organ was in that region of your body. it later pushes out during the advanced stage of pregnancy. even now your sex organ is supplied with blood and nerves from your abdominal aorta. if this stops, your penis or vagina will be nothing but a useless organ. so essentially your sex fluids are stimulated and originated by stimuli, nerves and blood from between ur spine and ribs.
mountains are pegs that hold the continents in their places. only recently scientists discovered that mountains have roots. hats right. so its not just protrusion of land upwards, it goes downwards deep intothe earth. moutn everest has a root of 125km under the earth. these roots stick into the plates and hold the landmass together. again, please check it out.
Professor Siaveda, a world-renowned underwater geologist, made the following comment in reference to the way that mountains have root-like stalks attaching them to the surface:
Furthermore, a book titled Earth, by Dr. Frank Press, former president of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, which is still used as a text book in a great many universities, states that mountains are like stakes, and are buried deep under the surface of the Earth.27
i just provided you with evidence from scientists themselves. and yes i found it on the net.
the quran is sent to humanity as a whole. you spoke about the quran in the wrong context. ALLAH simply said that messages are brought in tongues the people understand in their land. it has got nothing to do with designation of the faith. if the vedass were revealed in english, your ancestors wouldnt really understand it would they?
going round the kabaa or running the safaa marwa is not worshipping them. i dont know where you so easily deduced that from, maybe from your shallow thinking or your own view influenced by that dead fossil of hinduism, but what you mentioned are rituals of hajj. kabaa is simply the direction in which we bow and it is imortant since it has a significance in islamic history. abraham built this house in remembrance of ALLAH.
