Please read Q5:33 several times

Reader comment on item: [Finding Moderate Muslims:] Do you believe in modernity?
in response to reader comment: Guidance is Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad - no Scholar can change this guidance.

Dear Dr Pipes: Your reader Syed Nasim says, "I have studied the quran cover to cover and STUDIED BOTH seerahs and Hadith. NOWHERE I HAVE FOUND ANY COMMAND TO KILL OR HARM ANYONE WHO IS INNOCENT MUSLIM OR NON MUSLIM. IT CLEARLY SAYS "THERE IS NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION"."

Can I ask Mr Syed Nasim to read the quran 5:33 again and tell us if he can still make the above statement with an honest heart and mind? Something does not become true just because your grandmother or priest told you that hundreds of times before you were 5.

Submitting....
