in response to reader comment: Some replies to Williame

Williame,

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

(1) A bout dogs. We now have the invention of soap so dogs can be cleaned and even clothed. Many don't eat garbage any more and even get shots against some infections. Even for rabies we now have medication... So with what we have now. Should the Hadith on dogs not be altered?

(2) I must have overlooked the prediction you mention here: http://fortyhadith.iiu.edu.my/hadith02.htm

Socrates, a greek thinker allready used the technique of learning thruw questioning. And I also use it (not changing my name to Socrates like Plato is using Plato's name) What prediciton is there then given?

(3) If not for the arabs? I wonder... It is possible it would have taken longer. But eventually it would have spread. So claiming them to be arab inventions is incorrect, they merely aided in the distribution of it. Agreed?

(4) "The Quran is the absolute words of God as were revealed on Mohammad." As per belief of Islam

"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."

So the Hadith has no right directing Islam? And what ever a Muslim does according to a Hadith is but he's own choice and not part of the TRUE RELIGION of ISLAM? Correct me if I'm mistaken again please.

"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"

Standardization meant here where differend ones at that time with differences in them, no? So what ever resulted from that coudn't have been similar to all other copies who where differend. Else why would there be need for standardization when all would be the same?

(5) Hum, Plato and others are right, not all chapters start with it... but youre right stating there are 114 times mentioned, just not in all chapters...

(6)What is the Shunnah? I suppose it isn't Q'uran and isn't Hadith, so who made, it and what grounds does it have?

I'll try to find those who follow these two :Quran and Sunnah, but how can I recongize them from others on the street?

(7) Finding of personal truth, a lofty goal I must say and so is what I try to do. Did you read Buddhist books about self improvement? I'll try to find some for you.

This has helped a lot and I'm eagerly waiting for more.

thank you.
