in response to reader comment: 9.111 for Mansoor

First of all I repeat I am very faithful to my Lord and the religion he has chosen for me to follow!!

There are two types of Muslims. Muslims by Chance and Muslims by Choice.

When you discuss people like me who are born Muslims and naturally Muslims by Chance, the ideology of Islam would never be very strong...and it can be simple running on a predetermined track. It is Allah who provides us ample opportunity to judge the strength of your faith only through interaction with people of different faiths.

Many Muslims (by Chance) would hesitate to talk to the people of other beliefs openly because they didn't care much to learn about their own faith. I am lucky in a sense that when interacting too much with the people of other beliefs (thanks to the internet technology) I found that I am quite at par when it comes to the weight of the faith. I adore what I am following and I am proud of what I am.

You never read Hindu Scriptures otherwise your vision would have been totally changed. The point is that most of the people who say they are following or holding some kind of faith are not actually following it completely. I can quote you 100s of references in all major religious books of all faiths where there are commandments regarding bloodshed, fight, enslavement etc. etc. The question is, people attached to those faith are not considering them or even discussing them....or to be more specific eliminated them from their lives.

Islam never ever allows to put gun on your head and tell you to observe "Shahada" i.e to testify.

[10:99] Had your Lord willed, all those on earth would have believed altogether. Would you, then, compel people, so that they become believers? [10:100] It is not (possible) for any one that he believes except with the will of Allah. And He makes filth settle on those who do not understand.

The belief and the guiding light is given only to those who are willing to accept it with sincerity.

As for your question that why Allah is threatening the mankind to accept him. Well for this you will have to closely understand what I am going to tell you now!!

Just have a case study. When you build a huge garden with lots of beautiful surroundings like ponds, lush green grass, the waterfalls and beautiful residences and then you allow people to visit or stay in that garden. Now...Some people accept that you have created that Garden with extremely hard work and with ultimate expertise. But others straightly refuse that they do not accept that you have created and designed this whole beautiful Garden. Then you show them proofs, the way you perceived it and the way you planned it and the way you decorated it. But they still say,, no we don't believe you ...in fact you didn't make it but some other person or group of persons made it. Simply they reject each and every proof you give to them. What will be your final reaction? just tell me sincerely

The whole universe is Allah's kingdom. How can he allow you to worship any other alien personality who has no contribution whatsoever. The ruler wants his rule in his kingdom and would not allow any parallel rule. He has every right to implement it by force if people don't comply.

I think I made the logic...just think this way..Jenni
