Azkad you wrote:

>>I have read your comments carefully and I disagree with your points. Since the Sharia of Islam does not impose its rules on anyone forcefully, eventhough Muslims want others to abide by its orders.There is no compelling in Islam. Like a certain group of Muslims, many tend to ignore this fact.<<

Can you ignore this verse?: 009.033 YUSUFALI: It is He Who hath sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it).

Or this verse?:

009.111 YUSUFALI: Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur'an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.

How does one proclaim Islam over those who detest it without force? Azkad, you are ignoring this verse by saying that Islam does not impose itself on other religions.

You know, there more than 72 sects in Islam, among which only the way of Ahli Sunna val-Jamaa is the rightest. So, the ones who want to commit suiside, force others to accept their belief, speak violently in a vile language, estalish the kingdom of Chalifate definitely belong to one of those sects which are totally corrupt.

>>ISLAM is not the religion of violence and destraction, but rather the way of pioty, peace and friendship.<<

If what you say is correct then why does one find these verses in the Koran:

The Koran asks the prophet why he took prisoners during the Badr skirmish instead of massacring all of them (Koran 8:67). Allah asks Muslims to go out and fight even if they are averse to fighting (2:216). Allah even plots to make people go astray so that He has an excuse to punish them! 006.123 YUSUFALI: Thus have We placed leaders in every town, its wicked men, to plot (and burrow) therein: but they only plot against their own souls, and they perceive it not.

In Koran 17:16 Allah says: When We decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then (it is) We destroy them utterly.

>>If a person with an inscription on his forehead "LA ILAHA ILLALLOHU MUHAMMADUR ROSULULLOH" (There is no God but Allah, AND Muhammad is His messenger) committing suiside or telleing something violent in the name of Islam, or even someone with a white skullcap is doing something wrong, we must not, in no case, come to a conclusion and think that they are Muslims. That will be a wrong approach.<<

These suicide bombers do not have the wrong approach. Azkad, it is your approach which is wrong. Read 9:111 again or read 009.052 YUSUFALI: Say: "Can you expect for us (any fate) other than one of two glorious things- (Martyrdom or victory)? …….."

>>If you want to learn the principles and concepts or even the philosophy of Islam, to distinguish between true and corrupt Islam, I would highly recommend studying the way of Sufi sect and Ahli Sunna val-Jamaa<<

Azkad, Allah has told Muslims that He has protected His last revelation from corruption. Now you are telling us that there is also a corrupt Islam. Is it not time for Allah to abrogate His commitment to the revelation He gave to Muhammad and bring in a new prophet to rectify the corruption that has crept in just as He did with the older versions of His word the Torah and Injeel.

>> (but, for your information, Ahli sunna val-jamaa also splits into other sects, which is why you should find someone able to show their difference)<<

You informed us there are 72 sects in Islam and now you tell us that even the truest of true sects i.e. your own sect, has also split into sub-sects. Since your own sub-sect out of one of the 72 sects of Islam is the true one, by corollary the vast majority of Muslims (or so-called Muslims) are following an Islam whose teachings have been corrupted by some Muslims just as the Jews corrupted/hid what was revealed to them.

Your Allah has to be pitied. After claiming to be the most powerful and wise being His repeated attempts to protect His religion have failed miserably (you proved that with your statements). Even His iron-clad guarantee to protect the Koran has failed as what is followed of the Koran is not its true teachings.

>>Hope this helps you and many others in the world to understand true Islam.<<

You have helped me understand that Allah is an impotent being incapable of protecting His word.

Plato
