Dear Donvan, May you have peace.

Sorry for being late in reply. I have read your comment and I think that I need to clarify some points.

You said - "Since you presented no rebuttal regarding the active participation of the Moslems, ... ....". Brother Donvan, why should I go to rebute? Rebuttal happens when you are in a debate. Why would I have a debate with you? Why would I debate with someone about what I believe in? I have spent nights after nights reading Torah, Bible, Quraan, Vedas - not to do debate. The reason I spent those time is simple - so that I can find the Will of God and can implement it in my life.

If you have a look at my initial response which is - http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/103840; you will understand that the only reason I responded was because it was something with The God. Different people call Him by different names - ALLAH, GOD, ELOHIM, VAGABAN, KHODA and so on. But when they utter these words, they all point to 'The Creator', the one and only.

So my question was why people pick these words and try to mock with that word. If I pick any of these words and muck around with it, isnt it I am mocking my own Creator? Donvan, sometimes we do things that we repent later on. It is better for all of us that we dont make a mess with our own Creator - who is ONE and powerful over all things. Belongs to Him are the Heavens and the Hells. If we want to go to the heaven, we need to please Him, we need to listen to His words. Just by saying "I am a Muslim", will not lead me to heaven. Same way, just by saying "I am a Christian or Jew", will not also lead me to heaven. It is our righteousness and good deeds that will help us enter the Kingdom of Heaven. How can I think of entering to the heaven when I am mocking the Owner of the Heaven?

Brother Donvan, this is my way. I invite people to 'The Creator'. If you are interested in God and in entering the Kingdom of Heaven, we can share our opinions.... no debate, no rebuttal ... simply dialogue and our understanding. That way we can hope that we should be able to implement God's will on earth as it is in Heaven.

May "The Creator" help me understand His Will and allow me to follow in the perfect way.

Muhammad
