Mr. Mansoor says:
Your own existence & power of your own self are also beyond imagination.


The answer is simple. Just imagine yourself to be on the other side of the fence. One question which I always wish to ask? Why are'nt there any temples or churches in Saudi & other Islam nations & why is'nt there religion based terrorism in other faiths. I hope you started getting a hint of how tolerant Islam is over other faiths. The positive Islam is under a deep mire of negativity, which you moslems neither admit nor introspect.

Go & live in Saudi, the birth place of your faith for a while. I bet you'll never say that again.

<...find about the lives spent by renowned saints in Islam..>

To my knowledge there were many Sufi saints who gained instant acceptance from people of other faiths, but they never pronounced Islam is the only faith or Quran only leads to spiritual upliftment. An advise from my side too..for a change why don't you read the preachings of Meher Baba, Sai Baba, Ramana Maharshi & 100s of others who never propagated any religion but only love, selfless service & adherence to truth as the simple ways to reach God. You cannot brush aside the preachings of those 100s of holy men & women after the advent of Islam and none of them were biased towards any particular faith. Infact many have pronounced that religion may be a hindrance in the path of spiritual progress.

Elsewhere in this site a friend of ours wrote proudly that the "Prophet was born poor but was made rich (by Allah) by loot"

I understand, those Ayas which you quoted are scary. But why should you fear so much when Allah has ordained everything and happens according to His will, according to Quran.

That's fine, if it makes you happy. But truth (or Allah for you) is neither great nor insignificant but is attributeless. If you do a good thing people will say, Mansoor is Great, but U say Allah is great, which logically means Allah is Mansoor & vice versa. In Ur own words if God is beyond imagination, it is sin to pray him not only in idols but also in the framework of words (Alfaaz), 'caus just as idols try to picture him, words too try to describe him. That's why learned and advance souls preached silence, deeper silence & deepest silence to experience the true nature of God (again Allah for you). Keep reading the life & preachings of various saints accross religions. Then you'll know what Allah is all about.
