Hi Salama

>First of all; good for Dr Rahouma, to convert from Islam to Christianity. however i read in more than one documentary over the net wrong information which i need to correct.the highly respected Dr Rahouma, was not the dean of the Islamic University of Elmenia, or the Al Azhar University in Cairo, in "Egypt", no he was the DEAN OF THE FACULTY OF ARABIC STUDIES IN ELMENIA UNIVERSITY.

So he was 3ameed kuliat al-lugha al-3arabiyya fi gam3it el-minya right?

>Secondly It is narrated in the Quraan, لا إكراه في الدين

Oh the ayat la ikrah fi al-deen (for the readers the translation of the above Arabic is no compulsion in religion)

>But are you aware of what is sabab al-nuzul for this aya ya salama ya habibi? Let me help you it has nothing to do with the rights of human beings to change their religions

And are you also aware that ayat la-ikrah fi al-deen nusikhat bi ayat al-sayf? how come you did not know that?

>so the decision of what to believe and what to follow is up to everyone and based on his believes and own choice. And everyone would be questioned and examined by the almighty on that basis, i.e. based on every one's choice.

Makes sense to me so go and tell Muslims in Egypt and they will laugh at you
