Williame,

I prefered to send you a reply for every message you sent

(1) Dogs are dirty; Mohammad said that we should not allow them stay in the same house as we do; we should not let them eat from the same dishes; if it happened then the dishes should be cleaned by soil and 7 times by water. Their saliva is dirty and full of germs. The Dogs can be used for pasturing the cattles and other errands, also can be used as police dogs. But should not sleep in the same place as we do, should not be allowed to enter the house or eat in the same place, they should have their own quarters outside the house. (Dogs are impure). Dogs having rabies should be killed.

Also it is known that dogs make allergies to humans and could be fatal to some, making liver deseases when are kept in the house.

having said that it does not mean that Dogs do not worship God. The two things are

different. God created all, and they do worship. you have also good humand and

harmful humans.

It is true there is Hadith says that Angels do enter a house where Dogs are , because Dogs are impure.

God said "These is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its wings, but are communities like you, We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be Gathered"

Again "The seven heavens and the earth and all that is therein, glorify Him and there is not a thing but glorifies His Praise, But you understand not their glorification. Truly, He is Ever Forbearing, Oft-Forgiving"

(2) Predictions of Mohammad, you will find in Riyad Al-Saliheen on the Anti-Christ

and the signs of the End. There are other predictions such as the victory of the Romans (Byzantine) on the Persians in few years. (A miracle in the Quran)

There are others signs of the near End

I suggest you read the following http:// fortyhadith.iiu.edu.my/hadiths.htm

Hadith No. 2 have a prediction foretelling

(3) If it was not for the Arabs and Muslims the science would not have reached Europe.

Read Islamic science under wikipedia

(4) The Quran is the absolute words of God as were revealed on Mohammad.

The Hadith are the sayings and deeds of Mohammad during his life that we should follow. The Quran was compiled during Mohammad time, while the Hadith was compiled after Mohammad.

The preservation of the Quran is done first by Abu Bakr, then Omar then Othman, the latter, standardized the Quran writing. Read The QURAN under wikipedia

(5) Plato and others are wrong - There are 114 chapters in the Quran, 113 Chapters start with the "By the name of God the most Merciful the most Beneficent" Chapter 9 do not have it, but additional "By the name of God the most Merciful the most Beneficent" is mentioned inside chapter 27 in verse 30 (making them 2 counts in chapter 27 and making the total number 114

(6) The Muslim code of conduct is the Quran and Sunnah; you check for yourself, any Muslim who follow these two, you will love, you can talk to various types of Muslim, they are not the same, but the best who follows the two (Quran and Sunnah)

You will find them friendly, helpful, polite, humble, their gaze is down. Try it.

(7) I was not what I am today, it is not just because I was brought up as a Muslim, I scrutinized, doubted, thought of life and our existence for long time, I read the bible, the Torah, The Quran, I heard speeches from all various sects. Then I became a stronger Muslim. My convections were magnified. And I truly genuinely believe in the last revelation. In fact the Quran and Prophet Mohammad urge us to seek the truth in all our life.

Hope this helped - will follow
