You wrote

>see according to islam the honor and life of non-Muslims is as important as others

Then you quote Q5:32 as your bogus evidence but you did not tell us that

1. You plagiarised the translation from Pickthall again! Shame on you.

2. You did not mention that the aya really says:

"min ajli dhalika fakatbna 3ala bani israel inahu man qatala nafsan" or "for this cause we decreed for the children of israel that whoever kills a soul....then we have the rest of your quote!

Do you know what this means? It means that your Allah is talking about the Jews and not about Muslims! How come you did not know that? And why did you not include the first part of the aya in your plagiarized translation? Were you trying to deceive us or are you that ignorant? So which one is it?

3. You are also selecting a poor translation as usual as the word nafs does not mean human being here as ignorat Pickthall claimed, as the word nafs means a soul (see Hans Wehr dictionary page 985A) see what happens to wannabe Arabs like you when you quote a wrong translation?You do not know any Arabic period!

4. I would have to agree with your claim that "in Islam the honor and life of non Muslims is as important as others" only if the aya would have said:

Sharaf wa hayat al-ladhina layu'minuna bil Islam laha nafsu al-ahamiya zay sharaf wa hayat al-Muslimeen

Or: the honor and life of non-Muslims is as important as the honor and life of Muslims

But you would agree with me that this is not what the aya is saying

My dear Shakeel your claims are bogus and so are your debating skills and poor Muslim education. Shame

Now you tell us why do you want us to check your poor web site?
