Mansoor, you wrote:

>>Uh!!!! Plato so much of dirt in your mind and so much of poisoness viruses?<<

This reply of yours is really not worth answering, being full of personal attacks. You seem not able to come up with coherent replies to most of the queries posted here.

My mind is not so much full of poisonous viruses as poisonous verses which I read in the Koran. 9:111 is my favourite poisonous verse. Muslims reading it get injected with the mental virus creating in them a desire to kill or be killed for the sake of a phantom being. At least this is one verse that is very clear in a generally unclear book.

>>I pity that you spend your precious time to dig out of Quran something which only makes you look more foolish!<<

I have time to kill and I enjoy my study of the Koran. Show me something I have said that makes me look foolish.

>>You dissected the verses of Quran and made them look like imbalanced.<<

I did not make them look imbalanced, they are imbalanced. For instance: in one place the Koran says there is no compulsion in religion 2:256 and in another place that no religion except Islam is acceptable to Allah 3:85. Or you can be friendly with umbelievers in one place and then elsewhere they are to be shunned. I could go on.

>> The case is not the same. Allah has given full and complete authority to people to understand difference between what is right and what is wrong. He is just giving advice...not imposing it by force through any angel!!! <<

I expect you mean the full capability and not authority (if you mean authority then Allah cannot possibly question our actions later).

But what can the poor Muslim do when he sees contradictory verses like the ones about befriending/not befriending the people of the Book,or the one about there being no compulsion yet asking everyone to become Muslim.

>>Allah is warning you about consequences of denial, denial on the basis of lame logics you buildup yourselves.<<

This is one thing that you keep banging away at i.e. the consequences of denial. You have yet to explain why denial of this Allah is such a humongous crime as to require eternal torture.

>>You raised some very serious points.....you said why Allah asked Jews to call death for themselves and declared his inability to put death any person (Naoozubillah).<<

It is a serious point. Why does Allah go about cursing and abusing people He does not like instead of ending their lives and start torturing them immediately. By railing at unbelievers instead of striking them down immediately Allah is only demonstrating his impotency. The verse cursing Abu Lahab and his wife is a case in point (Surah 111).

>> In that particular verse you mentioned Allah just proved that they (Jews) will never ask for death...because they are not sure about what is going to happen to them after death!!!<<

A challenge from Allah to the Jews to commit suicide and see what is in store for them? They were not foolish enough to do that to please Muhammad. And you call that Allah's proof that Jews will never ask for their own death. LOL. I can prove to you that you that the overwhelming majority of Muslims will not commit suicide to prove to me that there is life after death.

>> Muslims are firm, and their belief is strong that they would earn better place, if they perform according to guidance of Quran and Sunnah, that is why they fear little about death...<<

The guidance in the Koran also includes verse 9:111. And those who believe in it will certainly perform according to its guidance and aim for the straight path to paradise (remember Mohammed Atta and his gang).

>>Allah is guarding Quran and proved that he proved!!! Quran is highly important and sacred and is guarded in "Loh-e-Mahfooz" (Secured Log)<<

Why did Allah take such a long time to realize that His words can be corrupted by his own creatures and took action only in the 7th century to guard His word?

>> come on....Granth Sahib is not a divine revelation...mind you! why you drag poor Sikhs in this drama of yours?<<

The Sikh granth Sahib was just an illustration to disprove a claim of yours. If I had made up an imaginary example you would reject it. I did not disparage the Sikh holy scripture in any way. You are the one doing it by saying it is not divine. For the Sikhs it is divine.

>>Better wash your brain...man<<

You are doing a good job of it. I am gaining more clarity about Muslim thinking from you.

Regards

Plato
