First upon as global citizen I strongly condemn the recent killing of innocent children of army school in Peshawar, Pakistan.My condolence to victim's family. May the Muslims embrace moderate and rational view and stand against such inhuman act. This is horror of Islamism which used to predict by Dr.Pipe on this forum.

Now,brother Wasim Ahmed, By Zaat Allah you mean there is no divine intervention in creation and Allah is mere abstract concept to frame all creation. So what is view of Muhmmadan on Metaphysics? If there is no such divine supreme being then there should not be divine laws which expect to follow to please,should there? And then what is significance of SHARIYAH i.e. book of law? In case of MUTSHABHAT ,how could book having such thing be guidence for human being? You have mentioned about shajarah, here is explaination on shajarah by Dr.Hasanuddin Ahmed as : "Adam was asked not to approach the Shajarah -----It may, here be noticed that 'la taqrabun' (Do not go near), is not used for corporeal approach.In a different context the Qur'an had used the word 'la taqrabun' in the following ayaat: 1."Do not approach them (your wives) until they have been clean". (Qur'an 2:222) 2."Do not go near indecency". (Qur'an 6:151) 3."Do not go near adultery" (Qur'an 17:32) In the above ayaat the Qur'an uses the word 'la taqrabun' for the intangible.It may be noted that Al-shajara his a beautiful allegory for the act of procreation.The Qur'an, while dealing with the delicate relationship of sex, has conveyed the idea in a most decent manner (Source : New Approach to study of quran, Author : Dr. Hasanuddin Ahmed)"

And how you claim that in world no become Ameen except Abul Qasim till date?

With respect.
