    I am not a Muslim, but I come from a country that has the second largest population of Muslims in the world (and have quite a lot of Muslim friends). I have extensively read Hindu literature, most parts of Bible and bit of Confucius literature. I’d like to know more about Islam also. I have a few questions, for which I want straight answers. If I am happy with the answers, I shall study the Qu’ran next.
    1. Does the Qu’ran teach that Allah will come to earth on Resurrection day?
    2. Will he judge everyone ever walked on earth?

  2. Deepak says:

    If Allah is the judge of all our deeds, why does the Qu’ran endorse Sharia law, which is not just brutal in some cases, but also prescribes execution in some cases? Why would God give man right to kill another man, when He himself is the one who decides everybody’s life?

    I have a problem that I have been wrestling with for a long time and would like you to help me solve it.
    My question has to do with what is written in Surah 3:169 about those who die in jihad: “Think not of those who are slain in the cause of Allah as dead. They are alive; with their Lord they have provision.” The same thing is written elsewhere.
    Just about everyone has heard about the 72 virgins who have been promised in Paradise to those who die in jihad.
    But here is my problem. As I understand Islam, it does no believe that man has a soul, which is the real person, that lives in the human body and then separates from the body at the time of the death and goes on living a conscious life either in Heaven or Hell like those of the followers of Isa believe. Islam believes that when you are dead you are dead and will not be resurrected until the Day of Judgment. No soul.
    When a person is killed in jihad the body is in the grave! This is very obvious. Since Islam does not believe in a soul that is separate from the human body then “what exactly is in heaven”?
    This is something I just don’t understand and have never read any explanation in Muslim writings. Will you please be so kind to answer this problem for me? Exactly what is not dead?
    Trying to understand Islam.

    I do not find any evidence of God separate from this earth. If God had made this world, I think he did a very shoddy work. Why should natural calamities strike this earth every now and then? Half of mankind is in dirt and poverty. This world has seen two world wars in which millions of people have died.

    Quran was revealed about 1400 years ago, yet all the progress made by mankind is only in the last 150 years. Islamic nations are still the poorest nations of the world. Most of the Muslims are living in Asia and Africa, which is extremely poor and backward. Half of Muslims are in Pakistan, Afganistan, Bangladesh and India, where Muslims are the worst sufferers. In Afganistan and Pakistan alone, the war on terror has claimed millions of life. All the Muslim nations of the Arab world have despots and there is no democracy. Women are discriminated against. Women cannot even drive cars, let alone be employed.

    Compare this with Europe and America where, the White race have made tremendous progress and life is comfortable. All the modern Gadgets like Airplane, Cars, Mobile Phones, Satellites and rockets etc etc are invented by the western world. Even petroleum was discovered by the West.

    If true and only God is Allah, why has he permitted other religions to flourish on this earth, both before and after the advent of Prophet Mohammed. Why cannot Allah send other prophets even now? Why has Allah permitted Christianity to be the dominant religion of the World? Hinduism is still alive and kicking despite 800 years of Islamic rule, where Zazhia (tax for non muslims) was prevalent. No doubt Islam is growing, but so is every other religion. And this growth in Islam is mainly from Asia, where poverty and backwardness is rampant and these places generally have higher birth rates? No doubt Islam is the fastest growing religion in USA and Europe. But that is because, the continents have 90% Christians and mainly due to migration from Islamic nations in search of better life. If in a place which is 90% Christianity, only religions other than Christianity can grow as Christianity has a very narrow scope to grow that is only in the balance 10% of the population. I have read the quran and I find that the ayats (verses) are neither logical or coherent. Surely God could have revealed or written a better book. The verses are so incoherent and childish that commentators struggle to find some meaning in the verses. There is no proof of the authenticity of quran or that Prophet Mohammed was and is the last prophet of God. There is no proof of Allah or kingdom of heaven called Jannat. Last year in TV, after a plane crash in a place called Mangalore in the Indian state of Karnataka, in which 153 people died and 5 survived, all the five survivors thanked Allah for saving them. If this correct then it means that the Allah could not save the others. The fact of the matter is I have not seen any evidence to suggest the existence of God and that he is responsible for what is happening in this World. But there are millions of people who believe in God. As long as death and misery exists, people want something to cling on to and that is God, even if he is non existent.
