Shakeel you are in brackets and you wrote:

[You are free to believe in anything. The judgment of God is over now.]

Isn't that a ridiculous statement. How can you be free to believe anything when if that belief is not what the Rasool says it should be you are assured of burning in hell? You call that freedom of belief? I have asked this before but you have studiously avoided answering it, so I ask again. Since you also believe that all our actions and intentions are known to the mightly Allah even before we are born it means he created us with those intentions so why is he waiting to deliver his judgement at the end of time or delivering them piecemeal when he sends some rasools.

[ No Muslim is allowed to force anyone to Islam.]

Tell that to the Pakistanis who are trying to convert the few Christians remaining and polluting the land of the pure.

[I hoped you have read my post in which I explained "Itmam-ul-Hujja"]

I have and I have some observations on it.

[You have repeated one thing, which I think, I have already answered. The purpose of humiliating some of His own creature through Rasool is to testify the rest of His creatures, that Day of Judgment is true and wrong-doers will not be left freed as you see in this world, they will surely be punished.]

Inscrutable are the ways of your Allah. He humiliates some of his creatures to enlighten some of his other creatures. Why does a Merciful Allah who claims all sorts of powers have to humiliate and punish with death some of his creatures to reveal the truth to others. Wierd and perverted behaviour by one who claims to be merciful. And how does the Rasool by humiliating and killing some demonstrate the reality of the Day of Judgement to others. You simply make unsubstantiated statements.

[By that, God further testifies that righteous of His creature will surely be rewarded.]

What kind of a God is this you believe in. He,, the fount of all mercy, humiliates and slaughters people to testify to the righteous of his creatures i.e. those who repeat the shahada, that they will be rewarded. You and your Allah have a black sense of humour.
