in response to reader comment: Strong Weak Hadith and Christians Cursed

Bismillah Rahman Raheem ( In the name of Allah most gracious, most merciful)

Hello, first I'd like to thank you for posting this.

second id like to tell you that to interpret the quran and hadiths without even reading (forget studying) them in their original language is not wise. If you didnt know arabic is a complex language and has dozens of words that could mean the same thing in english (example you have about 20 ways to say farmer which would each mean something different in arabic but just mean "farmer in english")

third no muslim who has studied the history denies that the muslims and rasulAllah (peace be upon him) have conducted an offensive war. and the only time they have is when they invaded BACK to Mecca, the prophets home town. And which suprisingly, the whole city was suspended and is the only war in human history in which no man was killed, in which the conquerors did not steal or violate the country. And in the quran Allah does command the muslims to kill everysingle one of them if they do not accept islam IF THEY DO NOT LEAVE THE LAND. if you believe this is strange, refer to the bible were Allah commands his previous nation the jews to smite nations, to kill every single man mother and child. (people have studied both the bible and the quran, there is no comparison there is much more violence in the bible)

the thing is that this is what we muslims would call Sunna of Allah (Way) the way Allah does things. let me explain ; Whenever a messenger of Allah has come and he has been rejected, the penalty is the destruction of the nation (example Noah and many, many, many more). The sin isnt rejecting the prophet, its rejecting him and his revelation in his face. If a messenger comes with law (like in Moses' case, not Jesus) he has to kill everyone in that land if he is to establish the law. This is exactly what Moses and the children of Israel did when they entered the promissed land.

why are christians suprised when the exact same thing happens when the last messenger Muhammad comes with law (the quran) and it is ordained to be established? It happens over and over in the bible.

Not only this but Muhammad is the last messenger so he HAD TO ESTABLISH THE LAW whether or not humanity liked it. NO prophet of God was able to spread his message like the last messenger did, no prophet had tribe after tribe converting to the religion of God, not even Jesus peace be upon him was given a nation like Muhammad was. Jesus didnt need a nation because he prophisied the coming of Muhammad in john. and whether you believe it or not it is My Lord and Your Lord who permitted this religion to florish in our world. is my Lord and your Lord who gave Muhammad 1.5 billion followers, and it is my Lord and your Lord who will make the religion of God supreme on earth.

I invite you to the religion where no god is worthy of worship exept The God ; the religion of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ismail, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon, John the baptist, Jesus son of Mary and. and Muhammad( peace be upon the all). Surely we will not argue on the fact that they all only worshipped Allah and not jesus nor anyone else?

assalamu alaikum
