May the Creators' peace and blessings be upon us all.
Ms Nazia,
I hope this message finds you in peace. Yet i doubt it since you choose talk out of context. Please read over the EXACT quotes you've given in your message. Read the Quran with understanding. Islam is the religion of seeking the truth about everything in life. The first being the truth of the ONE Almighty, call Him by any name, we prefer ALLAH cuz it stands out.. so it stood out when Jesus called to HIM on the cross.. which btw the new testament i believe quotes as 'Ela Ela.. why hath thou forsaken me'.. they didnt put one of the originally translated words in which was Ela = Alla.. i wonder why..

anyway as for replying to your comment.. it is human nature to analyse everything subjectively with less than adequate knowledge. only when u realize u are bound by something much greater, will u realize the start of your own existance, purpose and the pursuit of truth. As for all your comments.. Islam (meaning 'peace') ONLY allows to fight an oppressor where they kick you out of your house for no other reason than you believe in ONE ALmighty (Alla).

its important to seek the truth.. for the law binds us all. if you choose not to believe in the ONE, then that's your choice.. let me give an example.. if i say its Allah who binds me to the earth.. you'd say NO ITS GRAVITY!!.. ofcourse its gravity.. DUH!! but gravity's only a force created by HIM :) its HIS force. its important to get the meaning of words.. for all we are capable of thinking is through words.. HE taught Adam the words.. Adam represents man.. Quran is forever its laws are so flexible i've been bedazzled. Jesus pbuh's law (christian law) says you cant even look at a woman with lustful eyes.. PLEASE tell me who in this day an age can follow.. Quran ABROGATES that old message with SOMETHING BETTER.. 'DONT MARRY FOR LUST'

We are all subject to HIS law.. it helps to realize that. an law is everything, therefore you should give it a go.. an the most flexible is that of the Quran.. depends on your strife to understand it.. yet understanding is also a form of knowledge.. which those with an impure heart i.e. those who have been into greed and selfishness etc etc for a long time.. may not understand. Yet HIS mercy stands out among everything else. This life is just a learning.. so before you criticize ANYTHING, strive for the universal message of love and respect for we are all HIS GREATEST creation yet and all purpose is to love, learn, live and let live.

HIS Peace and mercy be on you mademoiselle.
Salam (Peace on you)
