Our dear Ayad wrote

>You cannot interpret the qur'an with a preconditioned mind

Really? and what is a preconditoned mind? could you tell ya ayuha al-fayalsoof al-kabeer?

>Your arguments in relation to these verses are baseless, Pickthall's translation as you mentioned as follows: Q14:4

And We never sent a messenger save with the language of his folk, that he might make (the message) clear for them. Then Allah sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth whom He will. He is the Mighty, the Wise.

please quote the whole verse and not sections to suit your needs

But I did and let me repeat it one more time: wa ma arsalna min rasulan ila bilisani qawmuhu

And "to suit my needs" really? but these are the words of your Allah.

It does NOT say ISLAM is a religion for the ARABS?

Well let us see: Allah sends a rasul to every qawm and this rasul must speak the language of his qawm. Muhammad was sent to the Hijazi Arabs because he spoke Arabic the language of his qawm. Therefore I must conclude that Muhammad was not sent to your ancestors the Hindus b ecause he did not speak Hindu/Urdu etc... and it even seems that your Allah had not clue that your ancestors even existed as the Arabic Qur'an is slient about both Hinduism and Buddhism which is more evidence that your Allah is just a local Arabian deity.

Oh and how did I reach my conclusion? Well I use the old Arab saying: al-tafsser lel sahaba wa al-ta'weel lel 3ulama/fuqaha/jamee3

>he(PBUH) was sent to his people with a message, but he had to start somewhere

So where does it say in the Qur'an

Qul ina Allah ba3atha Muhammad li qawmuhu bi risalatin wa inahu bada'a fi makanin ma...

You will never find such aya in the Qur'an

> because it also says in the following verse:

>Al Anbiya Q21 :105 - 107

Oh you mean Q21:107 really?

So you tell us where does it say in this aya that Muhammad was sent as a rasul to all of mankind? I do not even see his name in this aya. How do I know that your Allah is not talking about the let us say the Buddha? He was a real rahama lel 3alameen and not Muhammad who was nothing but a caravan raider and an Arabian warlord

>Verily, in this (the Qur'ân) there is a plain Message for people who worship Allâh(106) And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists). (107) Say (O Muhammad SAW): "It is revealed to me that your Ilâh (God) is only one Ilâh (God - Allâh). Will you then submit to His Will (become Muslims and stop worshipping others besides Allâh)?" (108)

Your translation is poor where does it say in the aya (O Muhammad SAW) it does not. You are editing your Allah's book

clearly this states ISLAM is for mankind and for all the creatures that exist!

it also states:

function kif(p) { /*var ob4; var ob5; ob4=parent.document.getElementById ("CmbFverse"); ob5=parent.document.getElementById ("CmbTverse"); ob5.selectedIndex=p;*/ var str="frmTran1"; var fontObj = document.getElementById(str); var size =parseFloat(fontObj.getAttribute("width")); //alert(size); } function decreaseFontSize(ob1,ob2,Lang,sura,script) { try{ var d; var str; var ind; ind=0 sura++ if(sura==1 && (script=="Hide" || script=="Usmani")) ind=1; str="fon"+ind; var fontObj = document.getElementById(str); var size =parseFloat(fontObj.getAttribute("size")); size-=1; fontObj.setAttribute("size", parseFloat(size)); for(var i=parseInt(ob1.options[ob1.selectedIndex].value);i

could you repost this aya?
