free bee, you are in inverted commas and you wrote:

"---Do you believe Allah (God) is Merciful? (YES)---"

He is not one bit merciful. free bee, just pay a visit to your neighbourhood cancer hospital and visit the children's ward and try to find your Allah's mercy in those kidss' faces.

"--Does He still punishes the wrongdoers? (YES he does)--"

No he does not. Allah wants the hand of a hungry man chopped off for stealing an apple. Billions are embezzled by the Royal family of Saudi Arabia and none of the scholars of Islam have anything to say about it as the Sunnah/Koran was unaware of such crimes.

"---So similary the Prophet (s) who was not only a messenger, but also a General, a Judge, and a Family man, has to implement the Law of God on the Land of God.---"

Idi Amin also proclaimed himself to be the king of Scotland. So was he?

"---The example you gave of the people, they robbed a man who helped them. but they still robbed and killed him. So the Messenger of God has to implement the Law of God and do Justice on the Land. He has to provide Justice to the wronged ones. ---"

Torturing criminals by putting out their eyes and letting them bleed and die of thirst is God's Law?

"---Once a women from the his own tribe stole some jewelry, when her case reached the Prophet (s), he said her hand should be cut. But the people told the Prophet (s) that she is from a very very noble family. At this the Prophet (s) said even if my daughter Fatima stole something, she will also get the same punishment as that lady (think of Paris Hilton, didn't you appreciate the Judge's decision who despite all the preassure implemented the law of the Land on this "noble lady"?)---"

The torture story of the Rasool I gave you was from Buhkhari (Volume 4, Book 52, Number 261). Can you give me which shahi hadith your story is from? Are you going to believe all the stories in the hadiths? Or as is the Muslim habit believe only the ones to your liking?

"---But on the other hand if anyone wronged him personally, he always forgave them.---"

The assassinations at the instigation of the Rasool were almost all for being mocked and criticised by poets, singing girls and scribes (Ibn Ishaq). There was no forgiveness. Uqba bin Abu Muayt was killed for having mocked him while in Mecca and murdered despite begging for mercy and pleading that there would be no one to take care of his children. The mercy to all mankind heartlessly told him hell would take care of his children. Read your Ibn Ishaq and Bukhari for more such stories of 'forgiveness'.

"---Thats why he is called the Prophet of Mercy.---"

Prove that statement with quotations from the Koran and hadith. Also get an English dictionary and read the meaning of mercy.
