Our dear samer who does not get it that I just do not believe him

>And you forgot to show the world that God says in the Quran

Oh I knew that this is coming

>Quran (2:255) "Their is no compulsion in religion, the right path has become distinct from the wrong path, whoever rejects evil and believes in God, hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-held, that never breaks. And God is all-hearer, all-knower.

And you forgot to tell us the following:

1. That ayat al-sayf abrogates ayat la ikrah fo al-deen. How come you did not know that?

2. Your Allah tells you in ayat al-sayf to kill the polythiests unless they convert to the religion of the Arabs which would mean that there is really ikrah fi al-deen at least in the case of the polytheists so who are really the polytheists? If you read Q9:30 then Jews and Christians are also polytheists in addition to your Hindu ancestors and the Buddhists but notice absent here would be al-mulhideen or the athtiests. You think we should tell Allah that he had no clue that there are indeed mulhedeen?

Oh I forgot and Muslims pray to an unseen God and this God and his mala'ika pray to Muhammad right? Then Muslims are also polytheists as they pary to Allah who in turn him and his angesl pray to Muhammad (remembet sala allahu 3alaihi wasalam?) then congratulations our dear Samer but you are also a polytheist. So much for poor Muslim theology

3. You seem to be unaware that sabab al-nuzul (for the readers: or the occasion for revelation) of such little gem was about a specific situation where Arab orphans were adopted by the Jews in Mecca and Medina and Muhammad was asked about what to do with such children that are Arab but are adopted by the Jews when he decided to kill and expel the Jews from Mecca and Medina and his answer was the above little gem.

How come you did not know that? Could it be because you are ignorant? Or could it be you really know but in this case you would be a liar. So which one is it?

>Also you forgot the world that Islam is the religion of all Prophets

Really? the 120,000 of them? so where would I find in the Qur'an: qul ina al-qur'an deen kul al-rusul wa al-rusul al-ladhina arsalnahum li ahl samer al-hidusiyoon

I urge you to stop being a victim of Arabian imperialism
