Guess we don't share the same definition about what is holy and what is a miracle.

For me a miracle can't be an invention or something explicable by science. It has to be inexplicable.

For you it seems to be some sort of prediction that came true?

For me Holy is something that was touched by divinity and still has some traces if that in it.

A holy relic could be one of Jesus nails or hair, still would it be? But it could.

For you all that is Holy is Allah(God) and nothing else so even Mohammed isn't Holy, nor is the Quran?

Also Holy is for me similar to divine. Does this also imply for you? and if Mohammed isn't holy, then why can't there be a statue of him?

If statues all together are forbidden, then why are pictures allowed? Or if even they are forbidden, then why didn't Allah just made sure the world would lack the substances to make such?

I 'm just pondering here.
