  1. can you tell us who God is? just My Creator, I don´t need to know much. Creatures can´t imagine God.
  2. Why is his alias Allah? Wrong Question. There is only one God, Allah.
  3. where did he come from? Wrong question. God don´t need to be created so no need to ask this question.
  4. does he talk to the animals? Acoording to Islam all creates pray to Allah. We can´t observe this.
  5. Does he have a hard copy of the word? Not necessariliy.
  6. Is he actually a she? None. Those are belong to creatures
  7. or a goat? No.
  8. Why do so many religions have different words or different Gods? It has nothing to do with God. It is all about power war of men.
  9. Are there more than one? No. If so God should have been created like us.
  10. why does God let good people suffer? We have freedom. We suffer from the decisions we made. God don't impose any rule over us. Allah says Quran is an advice for us.
  11. Is there hell? I believe so. There must be if not where will evil people suffer
  12. who lives there? Non-Muslims
  13. who decides which way you go? Allah is the owner of Judgement day.
  14. what if they've mixed up your paperwork and you end up in hell? Life is not a game. If we choose wrong path we will pay the price. This world seems to be free restaurant but not. We will pay the bill here after.
  15. can you appeal? I hope Allah forgive me.
  16. or...what happens if you die and then ..................... nothing?????????? Too risky to assume like that. Life is not a free restaurant. Nothing is free.
  17. Will you feel stupid for not living your life to the full and experiencing as much as you possibly could, but you couldn't because you'd be dead?

Suppose that I could. Let me give an example. I don´t drink. I have never lost my control. What would I do if I loose my control? I have no idea. Perhaps many things that I haven´t done before. Why not more freedom on this issue? Because I like having power over my behaviours. I do crazy things when I feel so, not because of the effect of beer or wine. Our body is an organic machine. If some special chemicals are given to us more or less we will behave same. Therefore,I would not be sorry if drinking was ok.

There are many things that stops me living at full capacity (1) not to take correct lesson from my mistakes, (2) laziness, (3) comparing myself with others, (4) living with assumptions, (5) taking not many risks, (6) delaying my dreams, (7) finding all possible excuses not to start or finish. None of them is religious.

One more question: How will God judge us? Do we need a lawyer? According to Islam our body will tell us everything. Our hand will speak if we steal? No lawyer. Just records of our actions will be used against us. Interesting isn't it?
