My dear Sohail

You wrote: "I will explain the contradictions that you picked."

Careless reader again. I picked up _a contradicition_ there is more if you wish, but let us stick to this one.

I'm going to skip your usual blah....blah.....blah and just concentrate on your defective understanding of Quranic tafseer:

1. Your Allah or is it Abul Qasim declares: "No compulsion in religion."

2. The Islamic tradition tells us that the last revealed sura is: Surat al-Tauba or chapter 9.

3. Then your Allah or is it abul Qasim declares in Q2:106: "ma nnsakh min Ayatin iw nnsaha (this is a grammatical error as you shall see later) naat nikhir minaha aw mithlaha"

This is the funny doctrine of al-nasikh wa al-mansukh or your Allah chaning his mind. What it really means is that a later Quranic dispensation will _abrogate_ an earlier dispensation in the same subject matter. (see Tabari and Ibn kathir).

Now in this aya there is a grammatical mistake that you can add to your 13 mistakes and that is: nnsaha should be: NNS'AAHA (Nuun Nuun Seen Alif with a hamza heh and alif) so much for the no grammatical mistakes in the Qur'an.

4. Ayat al-saif or the sword verse or Q 9:5 your Allah declares: "Iqtoloo al-mushrikeen" or "slay the polytheists."

5. The ancient 3Ulama had no clue of how to reconcile this contradiction.

5. The way out was to proclaim that ayat al-saif abrogated the no compulsion.

If you do not get this you are really beyond help.

Submitting....
