If I may call you Anne,

May I try to open your understanding about creation of Quran and Islam up to my limit of thaughts.

I am born and lived a muslim all my 45 years of life. Well, not a faithful muslim though. As for me, even with all the facts and evidences about these GODs religions, (Billions of followers around the world cant be wrong). I still have doubt if any of us is really getting the real teachings after many prophets sent to deliver GODs messages.

Before we go against any of the religion, lets get to know the prophets who delivered them, the community around theat time. The strength of beliefs before the new believe starts to open. Most prophets went through a hard time trying to make the forebelievers to change their pillar of life to a new way of knowing GOD.

I dont know much about people living with and around Prophet Ibrahim. Moses or Jesus, but I can imagine how the situations and conditions during Prophet time through documentaries and movies of course.

To my understanding, Prophet Mohammad never learned how to write or read. He was born and live through life without evidence of special miracle capabilities. His specialities is his sincerity with people, respectable, and wise in judging controversal matters. but imagine the Arab world at the time. (forgive me) norms are Arabs are ruthless, arrogant, Male dominent, airheads and lazy attitude community. Lazy to because "how is it they keep living in tents like those nomads but didnt move whereelse in surrounding countries there are Buildings and castles all over.

We can see how hard for Prophet Mohammad to convey the testiments to people. No doubt even a prophet is still human. To my beliefs, the true teachings from Prophet Mohammad may have been misunderstood even by his closest Khalifah (his closest friends. The main 4 Missionaries cannot even agree between each other, taking their own knowledge of Islam separately to all the world. now we have 4 different Mazhab.

Almost the same as Jesus disciples who mostly crave to be the best person to Jesus hoping favoratisms which inject evil thaught in those thinking in path of GOD but really? Which GOD path is it comes with envi and jealousy between each other. Pity, the one thaught to be evil (JUDAS) could just be the opposite as other deciples are actually envied him.

Conclusion : Most these doings of terrible behavior, terrorisms done by so called muslims saying the GOD signs them to Jihad by killing innocents are just doing their Arabic behavior not Islamic. If you would study what jihad really means

What of my understanding:
Jihad means . Sacrifice if it is needed to fight all form of evil within youand around you to maintain the pillars of Islam which is the way of GOD.
They seems to mis understood that its themselves that they need to fight to find the peace in mind.
When there are evidence of hate, anger, vengance in teir act of faith, cant we see which way they are going?

I beg forgiveness if I am wrong
