I know more of Human pains than Gods' secrets

Very many thanks, we need friendship sometimes more than faith...I believe in what you say.. I think the difference is in when you create your own light through knowledge and when you borrow a candle from someone to show you your way. Poets, philosophers and scientists belong to the former, prophets belong to the latter. They are God chosen ordinary people for example Moses is statterer, killer, afflicted with hand vitiligo. He had no knowledge but God supported him with the two pronged sword of Ali which can take the shape of snake or a formidable weapon. David was an adulterer and womanizer. Jesus Christ was intrusive and exaggerating. There was no need to satisfy a conglomeration of ignorant Jews by overtaxing his God requesting so many needless miracles. I see in Shelley, Byron, Rilke and other poets much more insight than in the holy books of the Jews and Xristians. Moreover, what do you say of the Crusades, the occupation of my beloved country Iraq and of the dreary massacre done by the Jews in Gaza Strip? Where is God in these acts. I challanger all Gods and pray for freedom fighters the West term "terrorists" to end the job of throwing occupiers out of Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan..And blessed Be Allah the Master of the Universe
