Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: READ the QURAN - many of your questions will be replied properly

Submitted by B. Williame (Belgium), Apr 30, 2008 at 03:52

When passing through passages of the Quran and noticing it to be used in converstations here, I also noticed that some of it's verses were put aside by people calling themselves Muslim here as not translated correctly.

Not knowing arabic or such, I'm still dependent of hearsay and translations. considering the words of an Iman being better then that of outsiders or those who just follow their faith, I think youre one, if not my best source for information about your faith.

Quote from you:

"Ants, animals, birds, fishes .....etc, worship God in their own way."

Then I suppose dogs also worship Allah in their own way, they why are they punished? (it keeps troubling me)

"Nostradamous revelations are ambiguous, people interpreted what he means, he is not a prophet or a God,"

True, isn't a prophet and certainly not a god(though some say he had visions given by some godly power telling/warning hem for the future) he wrote he's revelations in this difficult to read manner out of fear for the inquisition... So if there was no inquisition or he woudn't have cared for he's life, he would have given us more exact predictions... though it must be hard to descibe an atom bom when not knowing what it is.

From an possible offensive point of view: "Mohammed made predictions that came true, is he therefore a liar?"

Besides there is no proof Nostradamus didn't receive he's visions from Allah or the angel Gabriel. And he woudn't write it down as such because he feared the inquisition or Allah saw in his wisdom that it would destroy these prophecies by the inquisition?

"Our faith is the book, and when you say mohammad only left Islam and Quran, IS THAT NOT ENOUGH? did you read micheal Hart book?"

No, I didn't read that book, yet. And I don't know if that is enough... at least he didn't created a source or 5 of drinkable water in arabia or didn't make the desert fertile... Those would be remarkable deeds proving bejond a doubt the greatness of Mohammed's Allah.

"No a single change or replacement in the Quran ever since it was descended on Mohammad ever been recorded. Not a single word"

But you said to me it had allready passed QC... so what ever might be written, some parts could have been lost or replaced because more Muslims liked it differently then what Mohammed had first said, no?

""Also why twice at the end of his life" - simply because he will no longer be among his people and no more Archangel to descend on earth check."

Why no more Archangel?

I mean, in Allah's wisdom he would have foreseen the need of more revelations to help he's followers to adjust to the future's technologic changes, no?

And sending it in parts and peaces... so the true word of ALLAH is less then what is written in the Quran, for Mohammeds deeds aren't necessarely inspired by Allah, but the answers and knowledge Allah gave to Mohammed is, no?

Sending the Quran in pieces I do see the logic behind it. Else it would have been to much for them to digest.
