Questions to "Richard the Lion heart"

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Dear "Richard the Lion heart",

It seems that you have become a very informative part of the discussion. I do understand that you got LOTS and LOTS of information and resources. But, when you start to make false claims about the Quran like "the non-existence of the word love" and failure to mention that this is simply based on "your research and limited knowledge", any reader will simply have doubts about your integrity and truthfulness. I am talking about readers who are seeking facts.

On the other hand, while Muslims here are trying to defend their faith, seem to be arguing about something totally different. You are arguing about what non-muslims consider to be Islam according to non-Muslim sources, while a muslims doesn't learn his religion from non-Muslim sources and therefore not concerned about their claims and doesn't have to defend them if they don't match his beliefs.

To prove that you have full knowledge about Islam according to Muslim sources, we readers would like to listen to your answer to these questions. Of course, failing to answer these questions USING MULSIM SOURCES means that you don't have access to sufficient amount of knowledge to argue about the subject itself.


Question 1: In Islam, there are 77 branches of faith (over 70 as mentioned in the Hadith). Mention All the 77 branched of faith using Muslim sources. Cite the Source.

Question 2: Provide both Arabic and English text of the Quran, Surah 8, Verse 61. Explain this verse using any Tafsir approved by muslims.

Question 3: According to the Biography of Muhammed or/and other Muslim sources, what did Muhammed leave after his death. Minor details and quantities should be mentioned. Cite the Source.

Question 4: According to Muslim sources, who was "Bilal ibn Ribah." Mention his most famous phrase. Cite the Source.


Here are the Questions. Answer them if you can. I am so sure you can't.

Just to make your life easier, you can use internet sources this time.
