Noha: Allah is easy to understand. The Koran says so

Reader comment on item: Will Europe Resist Islamization?
in response to reader comment: Stop that!

Noha, you write:

>> if you don't know Allah, you cannot understand Him, better stop talking.<<

You are right about not understanding if one does not know the person/god/godess/shaitan/animal one is talking about.

But we know all about Allah from the Koran revealed to Muhammad. It claims to be an easy book with no crookedness in it (39:38). In this book without any crookedness Allah claims that He is the most merciful, benevolent creator. Almost immediately after making this claim He makes a crooked U-turn and begins to threaten eternal damnation for the mere act of unbelief. This pattern is repeated throughout the Koran.

So this book without any crookedness in it leaves us staring at the big crook of the question mark hanging over Allah's mercifulness. This is my understanding of Allah.

And remember this forum is free for all to talk to each other. You cannot attempt to censor what I wish to say.

Regards Plato.
