Our Father in Heaven is a sexless being (at least that is what those who know tell us). Unless sex is a form of worship your comparison of sex with worship is silly. You have brought down the Father to the level of his creatures. And except in Islamic countries that follow the Father's example, His creatures do not fry their spouses in oil for ever or make them drink gutter water for infidelity.
And you must know that in Islam your mother has to forgive your father for having multiple partners. So if mothers are required to forgive their husbands for setting up multiple partners why not Allah? Is forgiveness not a heavenly quality?
I wrote " Show us when When Allah has responded to muslim pleas" and your response:
>>Allah has already responded to muslim pleas long back by making the whole world dependent for Muslim oil !<<
Muslims have prayers for rain (even the Prophet prayed for rain) not for oil. The Arabs still pray for it. Muslims got oil not rain. Allah knows best? And the oil is going to run out soon, maybe by 2050, lasting only about 200 years. The rains will not. Rains began billions of years ago and there is no end in sight.
