in response to reader comment: Christians to Islam. Challenge this

John, its interesting what you claim, except that you don't have any sources.

I mean if you claim that muslims seek light, you need to show that this is true based on the teaching of Muhammed, i.e. using the Quran and the Sunnah.... Making sure that it doesn't contradict with your claim.

I am sure when you were a kid you used to imagine the space was full of water simply because everything was floating around! John, please, grow up and make an argument not based on fictional stories written about Muhammed hunderd of years ago.

Christians in the Muslim world say "Allah" when they are talking about God, and Mosques in the past were simply buildings with no symbols (not even the cresent). The flag of Muslims was simply a black flag, as the Quraish flag without the eagle. Ofcourse, you don't know who were Quraish.

Christians, Jew, and pegan in Arabia all worshiped God, and all of them used the word "Allah". Pegans used to believe in Allah as the supreme god, just as other religions. The believed that Allah had three daughter, and that Allah was not the only god, thus they worshiped hunderds of other gods. Muhammed said that Allah is the one and only god, with no daughters or sons, and Allah alone has the right to be worshiped. This whatever god you are talking about, according to the Islamic teachings, he is a false god.

Finally about the "light" thing you are talking about. Allah has 99 names, and "The Light" is only one of them. According to the Quran Allah is the creator of the earth and heavens, something that you don't seem to know. I would like to hear your agrument, but please give convincing arguements, not just fictional stories; something relevant to what you are talking about.

If you want to prove to me that I believe in something I don't, its not too much to ask for a reasonable proof.

Submitting....
