abd_abdal, you wrote i.al. :

> Islam by any means is a very peaceful religion and Prophet Muhammed practised Peace and Mercy to the human beings..If you taking quranic versus out of context it doesn't mean Quran supports violence or killing..

If you tell something else in a Muslim country it will be your death sentence. So don't even dare think it otherwise Allah will issue the eternal death sentence for you...In that case the seventh hell will be your adobe of eternity.

Reducing Quranic verses to 'context', time and space, in short relativising them is a heresy. The Quran is an 'eternal', 'preexisting Mother of the Book', immutable heavenly Word of the Almighty and every ayat is valid in it independent of any context, time and space. If it weren't this book would be a forgery ( which by the way evidently it is).

> Tell me which Religious scripture don't have it..If you take the history of any religion there was a war in the beginning..If you take Hinduism Krishna encourages the pandavas to kill their own relatives in the war..Does it mean that Krishna supports terrorism ?

Tell me how many Christian/Jewish/Hindu/Buddhist/Confucian/Pagan suicide bombers have exploded themselves recently in the Muslim lands?

>If you take things out of context you won't get the true picture..Learn the Quran with the context and what occasion each versus came. There are numerous versus in the quran to go with peace and tolerance.

All have been abrogated by "better" later verses.

> The Quran will give the proper meaning only to those who beleive in it.

That's the problem. Those who don't are simply put to the sword or brainwashed and asked to believe. If they still happen to cherish some doubts ... then you know the sword is sharp and quick and many faithful executioners are craving for their chance to earn paradise.

> If you see the life history of prophet Muhammed peace be up on him with a open mind with out prejudice and hate, you can understand the peaceful nature of the Islam.

Do you think this forum is a disguised mosque filled with illiterate,thoughtless, uncouth candidates for conversion to Islam who must be enlightened on what Islam stands for ? Can you imagine they aren't? They are quite knowledgeable, civilized and critical and classical Islamic brainwashing doesn't work here at all.

> The conflicts in human beings shows the evil nature of the humans...

Really? If a Muslim comes to deprive me of my freedom and my possesions and I don't surrender then it only shows my evil nature as a human being?

> All the religions have come only to remove the evilness.

With one exception - Islam which has come to make this evilness its guiding principle and the key to its success.
