Subject: Face the reality

Hello Plato,

Prophet (sws) had a direct communication link with Allah. And he knows those things which we cannot know. So when Prophet says, someone is hypocrite, he says because Allah has told him about that person.

Abraham's sacrifice is completely different with those of greeks whom you compared with Abraham. Abraham was also a Rasool, and Allah tested his love for Him. Abraham longed for a child. Allah gave him a child when he was very old man. And when the child grew bigger, Allah asked Abraham to slaughter his son in path of Him and Abraham did the same.

By doing so, Abraham testified that for him no one is more important than Allah. Although, he has a great love for his child but not greater than his love for Allah. Further he set an example for the next people that for the believer Allah is first and foremost.

Further (read carefully), Allah saved Abraham's son from being killed. Because Allah does not need the blood of his son (as you called Him blood thirsty- I am very sorry about it). What Allah was testing, was Abraham's love, in which he was true.

Once again you are posting the verses, relating to Rasool and his struggle against the Kafireens.

If you remember my previous posts, I said to you, that punishment against the wrongdoers comes in two forms either with natural disasters or with the hands of believers.

If the Rasools believers are less in numbers, then Allah's punishment comes as a natural disaster, but if they are in sufficient numbers, then it comes with the hands of believers.

In case of Muhammad, punishment came with the hands of believers.

You did not get my point, people lies when it is apparent to them that to lie is wrong. In a similar way, people reject Rasool even when it is apparent to them that he is true. In the words of Allah, such people are stupid, because they preferred this world over the next world.

Allah gave us pubic hair to see, whether we follow His commandment of being clean.

As told by hadith, it is clear that prophet married to Safiyah because she was chief mistress and we also know that because of Safiyah, her tribe folks were released. And when Safiyah tribes members were released, Prophet offered her to either join her people or accept Islam and marry her and she accepted the later.

It is general instruction. Have you bothered to read the context of it before claiming such thing?

To beat, does not mean to brutalize. So all of your words are nonsense. I would rather happy, if you put your efforts in getting my point.

Regards

Shakeel
