Sohail: Freedom shackled to Allah's will

Sohail you quote the Koran:

"If it had been thy Lord's will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe! Quran 10:99

No soul can believe, except by the will of Allah, and He will place doubt (or obscurity) on those who will not understand. Quran 10:100 "

You call that freedom of religion?

Allah Himself wills that unbelievers refuse to believe (10:99, 10:100) and with logic that is typical of Allah says elsewhere that no religion except Islam will be accepted and exhorts Muslims to jihad until all religion is for Allah. Weird isn't it. Allah wills that there should be unbelievers and then wants Muslims to go about converting the world to Islam. Allah even goes to the extent of placing doubt in those who will not understand.

Here is another bit of funny logic from Allah: why does he have to place doubt in the minds of people who already do not understand.Where is the need? He is afraid that perchance they may begin to believe and he will be deprived of the pleasure of roasting them in his hell and will be reluctantly forced to let them enter his personal abode. Now do you understand why there are so many unbelievers in the world.
