in response to reader comment: THE WORD, FIGHT, TO BE INTERPRETED AS VIOLENCE IS WITHOUT LOGIC AND TRUTH

Nozzi, you wrote:

>>Assuming that your interpretation of the word, fight, in the Holy Quran is correct in the sense that muslims should not preach to non-muslims and that they should show no mercy by slaughtering them one by one, there would not be any muslim converts except Muhammad. This is due to Muhammad would not preach to his wife, daugther, cousin, friends and associate so that they would be converted to muslims.<<

That is not my interpretation, rather it is what you think I am telling you. Allah had told Muhammad to do dawa and only if this was not accepted was he to slaughter. That is why he entered with a mighty force and told the Meccans to accept Islam and they did, he did not slaughter any except a few chosen ones.

>>Not only that, for instance if your interpretation of the word, fight, in the Holy Quran is correct that muslism should show no mercy to non-muslims by slaughtering them without preaching them the Holy Quran…<<

It is only after calling people to Islam and if they did not accept the call that Allah had authorized (in reality, Muhammad authorizing himself) killing of pagans.

>>…,..<< Muhammad would keep the message of Allah by himself without writing up the Holy Quran and he simply slaughter his wife, daughter, cousin, friends and associates by not sharing the message from Allah to them.<<

Nozzi, what is a message worth if it only to be kept to oneself. The whole idea of Islam is to tell people that there is only One God. If would be silly on the part of Muhammad to hide the message as why else would Allah inspire this message in him?? You do not make any sense at all, my dear Nozzi!

>>Nevertheless, to interpret the word, fight, in the Quran as leaving no mercy to non-muslims by killing them without hoping that they would be converted to Muslims has been found to be non-sensical.<<

It is truly nonsensical and it is YOUR interpretation of what I said.

Plato
