Hello Plato,

Abbas had been hiding his faith, he did not want to fight against Muslims, but it would reveal their secret faith, that's why he participated in the war but he remained behind the pagans and did not come forward to fight.

Actually, I have nothing of my own, everything has been granted to me by God. My life, my family, property and wealth, everything is actually Gods' not mine. God gave Ibrahim a son in a very old age and when Ibrahim was in full love with him, God asked him to sacrifice his son. Being a true servant of God, Ibrahim in spite of his fraternal love did not forget that his son is not actually his own, it was given to him by God and belongs to God, so he sacrificed him and established for all of us that we all belong to God and nothing belongs to us.

When Rasool comes, the Truth he presents to people becomes so apparent to them and clear that all those who hear of it, are not left with any valid excuse to deny it. If at all they reject the Rasool's call, it is a deliberate and conscious denial of the Truth due to personal motives or blind obstinacy in the face of apparent Truth. Such rebellion and obstinacy does not go unpunished in this world when Rasool of God is among them.

You asked me scriptural arguments; I have already been providing that to you. I have been giving you verses about Rasool.

Sunnah has no link with Hadith, it has link with Quran. I mean spirit of Sunnah is found in Quran. For example, Quran says be clean and we know it is Prophet's Sunnah to trim Mustaches, under arm hair and pubic hair.

Please read above. Once Rasool is gone, none of People of Book can be forced to convert or pay Jizyia.

also answers your points 3, 4, 5, 6

Prophet married to so many women for two reasons

To have kinships with other tribes

To have his private life noted by many women (instead of one, two or three)

He chose young women because, they were going to live longer and witness Prophet's private and personal life to Companions and their next generations.

Wife beating is allowed in Quran as a last resort to keep rebellious wife in control; however wife beating does not mean physical abuse as you might be thinking.

Thank you
