I would be glad to become a Muslim but for verses like:

1. 113:2 (The Daybreak) in which Allah tells me to seek refuge from the Lord of Daybreak from the evil which He has created. If Lord of Daybreak and He are one and the same then I am in trouble. It makes sense only if the Lord of Daybreak is a higher power than the He.


2. 2:253 (Al Baqara) In which Allah says had He willed it, people would not fight each other but Allah does as He pleases. How can I trust such a capricious deity? After reading this ayat can you be sure that even Mohammed will be in paradise?

So even if I became a Muslim He does not guarantee that I will be safe from his punishment or be safe from the evil He has created.
