dhimmi, you wrote:


So you agree with me that if we infidels are ignorant then you must only blame your Allah for us being ignorants. Right?


I don't agree. God gave us the free will to choose to go astray or submit to his will. We are responsible for our own souls and are to blame for our own ignorance. It seems incredible that some have, and will continue to choose to go astray after all of the revelations and scriptures that have been revealed about what happens to you when you earn God's wrath. Those who choose to be lead astray he will let them and those who choose to submit he will guide them. God knows who will and who won't submit and therefore that is the meaning of "he leads astray whom he wills and guides whom he wills". If we go astray then we will be allowed to go that way. That way will look like the right way to us. The further we choose to move away from God the further astray and ignorant we will become. God willing, he will show us the straight way, like the way of thoses whom God has shown his grace and not of the ones who have earned his wrath nor the ones who have gone astray.
