You write: "No, Satan was not given respite to do evil. He was given permission to tempt those people whom he can (eg: those of weak faith, disbelievers) to do 'evil' and sin". Permission to temipt people is not respite to do evil? Strange logic. Madrassa logic.

Is not that exactly what God should NOT be doing? Allowing Satan to tempt people of weak faith/disbelievers. They are the ones who are likely to fall for Satan's viles and need most help. And these people whom god himself has created with weak faith/disbelievers will be sent to hell. What kind of a god is this? God seems eager to fill hell with people of weak faith/disbelievers otherwise why did he give respite to the devil and give him permission to tempt them. God is behaving really strangely here. God should be sending angels to strengthen the faith of the weak ones and make believers of the disbelievers, instead he does the opposite.

You write: "Yes, of course. Anything which you disagree with and do not understand is, quite obviously, 'Islamic logic'" Mr. Salman I had to invent this Islamic logic or more correctly madrassa logic, to understand what is going on. Because if my fate is written and yet not pre-decided what else was I supposed to do as mundane everyday logic fails to come to grips with it. And using this madrassa logic it is now possible for me to understand how the sun moves and moves not and how gazwas by Muslims are pure defensive measures and how the devil is given permission to tempt people but yet it is not respite by god to do evil. Thanks to madrass logic such things are now so easy to understand.

Coming to Star Trek:

You do not believe in time travel by humans but you believe in time time travel by god for sure. If starship Enterprise travels into the future sees some events and they do not happen it only means that their time machine is poorly designed or has broken down. A well-designed time machine will take into account all possible things that can happen. That is exactly my point about god. If what your god has written down does not happen because of your actions between when it was written and later then you have a poor imitation of the real god. Your God is unable to enforce what he has written/knows.

Your serve Mr. Salman
