To Shakeel: Give us pea-brained people some solid proof of Rasool's prophethood

Shakeel you say [First, every act of God is full of wisdom, but we, with our pea brain, sometimes could not find that wisdom.]

Tell us what kind of godly wisdom is this which gives us pea brains so that we cannot act with wisdom? Since Allah created us with pea brains it is His fault that we cannot act with wisdom. Allah's wisdom is not very visible here unless of course he left us pea-brained so he could blame us for being fools and use as fuel for his ovens in hell. If that is the case then surely Allah is full of wisdom.

And Allah does this often enough. He tells a townspeople to misbehave and when they obey they are obliterated for committing abomination! . He lets loose Satan to work his devilry and when he succeeds burns in hell those who fall for it. It is a sick kind of wisdom

[However, one thing is clear; the punishment was not severe in case of Muhammad as it was in case of Noah that is why, God says, Muhammad (sws) is mercy for all mankind, because he brought God's mercy with him.]

The Rasool brought God's mercy with him you say. Your sentence makes clear that the bloodletting by Mohammed was less severe compared to say, Noah's flood. You are talking numbers here. But for the individuals involved, being killed in gazhwas, being sold into slavery, assassinated in the dead of night or limbs being chopped off and being blinded, the severity does not change. Is this the mercy of God he brought with him? Shakeel you simply are abusing the meaning of words like mercy and divine. This Muslim trick of using or rather abusing the meaning of words is tiresome and we are all aware of it now. Now only when you use words like Satanic and merciless in relation to Allah will we acknowledge that you really mean divine and merciful in OUR language!

Satanic actions like destroying entire towns or drowning millions of people about which Allah keeps crowing is considered divine. Merciless actions like dismembering and blinding people, assassinations for mere criticism are considered merciful. Poor Shaitan how can he excel Allah and his Prophet? Tempting Eve with an apple seems to have been his crowning achievement.

[Second thing is, Muhammad was one and the last of Rasool, it means, from now onward, God will not put the mankind into a trial of Rasoolship, where man has one out of two choices, be believer or rejecter. No intermediate option.]

Trial of Rasoolship? You mean all those trials undergone by the pagan Arabs because of the gazhwas he conducted to bring in booty, slaves and converts? I thank Allah for ending his habit of sending Prophets to try us. Us infidels and our descendants can breathe easy. No more sudden attacks, no fear of being sold into slavery or being dismembered for some trifling misdemeanor like filching an apple or consensual sex. Also I am interested to know, when did Allah give us an intermediate option?

[Third thing, you say who decide who the real culprit is; it is God who decides the real culprit, because He knows inside of people's heart.]

When the qazi's give judgements are they then giving Allah's judgement? If not how can they be sure that they are punishing the real culprit?

[God never sends punishment on the people unless God made everyone clear that Rasool is true and has come with truth.]

Another question arises. What proof did the last Rasool give that he was indeed what he claimed to be? There were other Arabs also spouting verses, Muslayma for instance. Pouring through other scriptures to connect the Rasool with some words or vague references in them and then claiming there is mention of this Rasool has not fooled anyone since you claim at the same time that these books are corrupted. What sign did Allah give that Mohammed was his Rasool? Splitting the moon or ascending to heaven while asleep to confabulate with his brother prophets and Allah? ROTFL

[God sends punishment after doing "Itmame-Hujja" or "Completion of Argument", it means God sends punishment after it has made crystal clear to everyone that Rasool is true and has come with truth.]

Same question as above. What proof was given to everyone that Mohammed was indeed Allah's Rasool? Show us this crystal clear proof that Allah had anointed Mohammed his Rasool.
