My Sister,

You are very angry. When you get angry, you can get hurt and badly or say and do things that you may not like later. So it is best to keep a level and balanced point of view.

I had outlined what Muslims believe.Belief transcends reason and logic. The Holy Prophet Jesus (may God's peace be upon him) is the Prophet you have chosen to follow, He is one of the 124,000 Prophets that the Almighty has sent to mankind over a period of time. Reason is best not applied to religion. Religion needs no justification or proofs because the books are divine.

We live in a scientific age where everything is proved by experiment and with logic and then proved repeatedly. Keeping that aspect in mind, I will show you the fallibility of reason. Tell you your name and give me undeniable proof that your name is what you say it is. No hearsay, no witnesses but just proof of what your name is. Its next to impossible to do this. You would have to prove beyond a sheet of paper or hearsay from people who claim to be your parents. Because your word and their word is not proof scientifically. Iyt is hearsay.

The Holy Books, The Blessed Torah, The Blessed book of Pslams, the Blessed Bible and the Blessed Quran-e-eKarim are divine revelations. If The Almighty could create The Holy Woman Eve from the Prophet Adam's rib, then virgin birth and the miracles of the Holy Prophet Jesus ( May God's peace be upon him) become unquestionable and very possible. And finally let me ask you, who were the wives of Cain and Abel? Were they incestuous? if they were not, then the Prophet Adam could not be the first Human being. Isn't that logic? But belief makes you accepts this without questioning it and also accept this as a starting point and true because it was divinely revealed.

So what I had written to you is not Mox as you call it but deeply thought out. I do not have to defend any religion because it needs no defence least of all mine. All I say is respect all faiths. Should you do so, then it makes life very much easier.

May God's peace be with you

Fazal Habib Curmally
