Zonaira, you write,

>>hindus just follow their religion becoz their forefathers followed it.<<

Why do you follow Islam, zonaira? Did you pick up Islam from among others such as Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Sikhism, Jainism, Buddhism, Bahaism, paganism, communism….

What research have you done on any of these religions and did this research bring you to Islam? Have you even research Islam to bat for it?

>>They didnt researched on religion scientifically as wel as spirtually.<<

Can you justify your claim that Hindus who follow their religion did not research it? Maybe they did and found it better than the others, at least better than Islam?

>> if they do so they will realize what they are doing. their god to whom they made with their own hand they worship it.<<

Hindus worship idols made with their own hands. Muslims worship the phantom of a baleful being created in their minds by another human, Mohammed. What is there to choose between the two?

If you research Islam you will find that Muslims are worshipping a being called Allah (the original name of an Arabian moon god) who they claim is the creator of the universe and who it is claimed has powers that are impossible for human beings to even think about. But this being with all this self-proclaimed power is so shy that He is fights shy of revealing Himself to his creatures except to a very few who designate themselves prophets. Through these agents of His, this being who claims to be omnipotent issues blood curdling threats of horrible punishments at some unspecified future date if anyone does not humbly accept that He owns the Universe. Millions of people, like you Zonaira, without researching if there is any truth to these claims break into a cold sweat at these threats and swear allegiance to Him and grovel and abase yourselves and fall over each other in singing this phantom's praises.

An illiterate Arab named Mohammed told an almost equally illiterate but also credulous mass of barely civilized people that he had been appointed the last prophet by this ex-moon god, Allah. Anyone who did not believe his self-proclaimed claim was also doomed to be deep fried (like me for instance) in Allah's frying pans. He claimed he got this information from a strange winged creature who called himself Gabriel, invisible and inaudible to all except himself. And as Allah's last representative on earth you are also terrified of Mohammed and mutter 'peace be upon him' whenever you mention his name.

This is what my research into Islam found. Why would I believe such a cock-and-bull story coming from a poor illiterate trader, out of a barely civilized land?

>>When Allah says Humans are Ashraful Makhlukat. No other Creature is beter then them. Hindus are just spoilig the the Dignity of humans as well.

So Allah says no other Creatures are better than the humans He has created. Hindus also have been created by Allah, so they are also Ashraful Makhlukat. How can these ashraful makhlukat, among them Hindus, spoil their own dignity??

>>Our Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) Is at the highest Level of all the humanity.<<

That is what he himself claimed, did he not?

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 13: Narrated Abu Huraira: "Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hands my life is, none of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father and his children."

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 14: Narrated Anas: The Prophet said "None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind."

The prophet has denigrated all of all mankind by this statement. A mere human who claims without any proof to be relaying second hand messages from a being incapable of conveying his own messages elevates himself above all mankind. Valuing oneself above all humanity is a sign of inhumanity as it would mean that he would be willing to sacrifice all of humanity for himself. This is a sure sign of an out of control ego. What dignity do you find in following such an egomaniac?

Regards

Plato
