bayezid, you wrote to dhimmi:

>>truly pathetic. the only one who has the right to torture is ALLAH. so the punishment of the grave is from HIM and by HIS permission. people dont have the right to torture. muslims are people. so this lw applies to them.<<

Bayezid, what is really pathetic is your amnesia about the horrors committed by your Prophet. Do recall the torture that Muhammad inflicted on Kinana b Rabi to get a few pieces of silver that belonged to his tribe. Did Allah allow Muhammad to torture as the treasure of the Banu Nadir would have helped His cause?

Read this hadith:

"O Allah's Apostle! Give us shelter and food. So when they became healthy they said, "The weather of Medina is not suitable for us." So he sent them to Al-Harra with some she-camels of his and said, "Drink of their milk." But when they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of the Prophet and drove away his camels. The Prophet sent some people in their pursuit. Then he got their hands and feet cut and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron. I saw one of them licking the earth with his tongue till he died." Bukhari 7. 71.58

Muhammad had a cute line in torture. If a life for a life is the Islamic punishment why did the prophet torture those killers instead of beheading them.

Regards

Plato
