in response to reader comment: Re: "Is Islam peaceful and peaceloving. What do Islams most authoritative documents say?"

And besides, you do not have the rights to spread Satanic words on Prophet Muhammad, the holy descendant of Ishmael. My post last month was crystal clear, despite what you mentioned, which were pointless or were quoted from Muslim sinners. You are aware that there are sinners in Christian and Jewish communities, aren't you?

. Muhammad, or mu-Hamad (meaning "One who praises") is a descendent of Ishmael, appointed by the Lord to clean up the mess the Jews left behind hundreds of years ago back in the "Holy Land" - as the Qur'anic chapter 5 itself calls the geographical. Muhammad, because of his preaching with Gabriel's (Jibril's) guidance, his uncle and leader of Mecca, Abu Lahab, wedged war against him and few of his early followers. Some of these followers were murdered, while some were hurt. [This is why the weak ones were advised to go to the Christian kingdom of Ethiopia through present-day Saudi city of Jeddah.] Muhammad himself got a lot of category of injuries: From stone-throwing to swinging swords. So of course, like Solomon (Sulaiman) and a few prophets of the past, and unlike the peaceful ones (Noah, Abraham, Moses, or Christ), Muhammad had to muster an army in his second hometown, Medina -- where his tomb can be found in the grand mosque there. [Do you notice that most of our [Christian, Jew and Muslim] prophets do not die in the same city they originated from the same hometown?]

. If Muhammad had committed sex, beating or killing offenses, don't you think Muslims - or would-be Muslims in this case - would have known about this from written texts by witnesses all over the Middle East, and Arabia itself?

. According to Ahmed Deedat's book "What the Bible Says about Muhammad", in the King Jame's edition of the Bible, Muhammad's coming was mentioned by Christ himself. Muhammad was mentioned as "The one who will praise".

. If you insult Muhammad, then you have thrown that same insult on Ishmael and his biological mother, Hagar.

. . . . . .

"Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath God ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and God is All-knowing, All-wise." - The Women 4:24

. . . . . .

As I told you, "except those whom your right hands possess". I knew you would say something about that, and I was waiting for it. It means that the woman whose parents allowed you to be with during engagement. This is being done, fpr example, in Muslim world freely today, even my female cousins back in Lebanon, some of whom are already happily married. In fact, looking at the Holy Qur'an, no word on war or slavery there.

And why do you look at al-Hadith ("The Record") all the time? Not all its quotations are easily traced back to Muhammad's time, and I think you're lying on top of it. Or, have you forgotten that we have a war among ourselves? Instead of insulting us, learn what brought Yusuf Islam (former Christian) and Yusuf al-Khattab (former Rabbi) to Islam, and help us fight the extremists and extreme scholars.

Because of people like yourself, and because of extremists I mentioned in the previous paragraph, there is a petition already on the sketchboard, telling the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs to severely deal with ever-growing numbers of Islamophobes and counter-Islamophobes (the extreme ones who had record in destroying buildings or killing Islamophobes in real life).

Consider reading Ahmed Deedat's book "Is the Bible God's Word" - which the Christ book is obviously man-made and was not made or authorized by Jesus Christ himself (not to mention countless versions of the Bible and frequent adding and removing of texts) - and look at my final quotes:

In the name of God the Most Gracious the Most Merciful...

"Say: O disbelievers!

"I do not serve that which you serve,

"Nor do you serve Him Whom I serve:

"Nor am I going to serve that which you serve,

"Nor are you going to serve Him Whom I serve:

"You shall have your religion and I shall have my religion. " - The Disbelievers 109:1 - 6

If my God is not the God I should believe in, why did he save me from an inhumane murder attempt (with a hunting riffle) during an armed robbery back in August 11th, 2005? The gun failed to fire, but I saw purple sparks shooting out from it, while I was beating up severely from trying to run away -- after pushing thwo robbers and their ring leader to the ground with my hands. Instead, the would-be killer played golf with his gun, leaving two permanent scares on my head till this day. Al-hamdu Lilah ("Praise is to God") that I am alive today.

P.S. Have you watched SECRET BIBLE WEEK on the National Geographic Channel, the one where John the Baptist (Yahya) witnessed Christ going to Heaven while the Romans stapped a false image on a cross with a spear? This is the precise faith of Christ (I'sa) Muslims believe in. Consider making research on this rather than coming back here not talking about Valentine's Day.
