Too much personal views are put as important

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: Quran and Hadith Suffice

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), Apr 28, 2008 at 09:07

The first part's authenticy I do question. and the more I hear about it, the more it seems to be reasonable to be questioned.

For the second I'll start by quoting you.:

"Ijtihad (interpretations) are available but at the end it is up to the person's direct relation with God. No mediator except the Quran and the Hadith. once he knows and understand the Quran and the Hadith, that is enough for anyone to worship God in a manner that God will be happy with his deeds in this life for himself and for others and for his prayers..... everything"

So what I read here is that each person for him or her self has to decide when he/she understands the Quran enough to decide he's or her actions. And that then the actions will be making Allah Happy?

Some examples:

So suicide bombers who consider themselves educated enough are making Allah happy?

So Plato and Dhimmi and all apostates knowing the Quran make Allah Happy by not following Islam?

Sorry this doesn't seem logical to me... But perhaps you can clarify this to me.

regards.
