Dear Nazia

I was reading your conributions carefully, and would like you to please answer these questions for me

You said
"The book that God described as complete, perfect, fully detailed and having
details of everything. See 12:111By doing so, all these sects left God's kingdom and joined
the same groups who previously corrupted the other religions of God, Judaism and Christianity."

Nazia, This is a huge accusation, why would you think that Christians corrupted the word of GOD? When God in the bibles consistently talks about love and mercy what kind of corruption is this?

Why would you think that Christians would corrupt the bibles?. After Jesus' death most of his disciples and followers were thrown to lions, tortured, thrown to boiling oil and killed to force them to renounce their faith, why would you think that those people would sacrify their lives for nothing, and then accuse them that they corrupted the word of GOD.

Is it because Muhammad claims that Jesus said in the bible that another messenger will come after me and his name is Ahmad (another version of Muhammad's name). if there was really a verse like this, does it make sense to you that GOD will contradict himself, the message sent by the bibles are opposite to the message sent in the Quran. There is no justification for violence in the bible (new testimony) whatsoever. In the Quran however there are lots of justification for wars and killing in the name of GOD.

On the other hand, Jesus is known as a person without a sin, the credibility of his words can not be argued because of his credibility as a divine person who never committed any sin. Because of his purity, humble life, love to humanity, so many other characters that guarantee the credibility of the messages he delivered. None of his messages worked to his benefit, on the contrary all of his revolutionary messages worked against him and threatened his safety and his life.

The bibles didn't talk about details like how to wash your hands, when to make sex, what to say before you eat and after you finish eating because GOD trust the intelligence of humanity and trust the evolving of civilization, humanity evolved from dark ages to what we call democracy today without the need for a book to show how to greet neighbours or what to say before you go to the washroom, etc. Humans learn continuously and discover ways of adapting to life by creating laws, policies, etc

Religeon is a path between human soul and GOD, it is not a political or govermental system.

If you think hard enough, unconditional love is the word that describes human rights and guarantees human dignity regardless of differences. When you say Quran is a complete book that shows a complete way of life, this statement can be argued by so many intelligent people, high numbers of them are liberate Muslim women. Lets say in today's word, a devoted but talented Muslim woman wants to participate in Olympics, how can a Muslim woman participate in swimming contests and wear a swimming suit as an example?. People in the West watch swimmers not to watch their bodies but to watch how good they are in swimming. I can provide you with thousands of other examples. I my self very much committed to Christianity but I do lots of exercise like running, swimming, etc. when I wear a short or a swimming suit, my intentions is not to show my body my intention is simply to exercise outdoors or indoors, this doesn't corrupt my spiritual relationship with GOD, because I didn't reveal my body to intimidate men of for any other bad intention. In the West this is very normal thing to do.

The point that me and so many on this web site trying to make is that the credibility of a message totally depends on the credibility of the messenger, when you admit that Muhammad was ordinary person who commits sins, who gets angry, etc. how can you trust that he delivers the word of GOD or how can he be a model of a divinity?. As I mentioned before, I read the Quran it seems to me that Allah sent lots of verses to defend Muhammad and to justify his actions in so many occasions. Few examples:
1. When he threatened his wives that Allah will provide Muhammad with more beautiful wives if his wives did not obey him
2. When he ordered the killing of the people of Mecca (kill them wherever you find them) so Muhammad can win the war against tribes of Mecca
3. When he ordered to kill hundreds of Jews
4. When he forbid the marriage of Muhammad's wives after Muhammad's death

Doesn't this sound that GOD is really working to support Muhammad and justifies his actions?

Another question

Happy family in Islam is the base for a healthy community, I totally agree with this, however, how can GOD permit polygomy (4 wives for 1 man) do you think that this has an impact on women's dignity? your name shows that you are a woman, do you really think that a woman can willinglu share her husband without being hurt? can you believe that this will not negativelly impact the family and the children, don't you agree with me?

Please do not give me examples on how corrupted is the West, I am discussing christianity vs. Islam I am not discussing muslims vs. christians.

Peace be with you
