You have to read the Quran thoroughly to understand its central theme.Belindi wrote: ↑July 17th, 2018, 7:03 amSpectrum wrote:
I understand that you are reading Koranic fighting talk as if it applies for all time and all history.I believe that some Muslims are also literalists.You are dreaming, re the bolded, where in the Quran [Allah's words] are the overall overarching verses to support your point, Allah is merciful to non-Muslims?
Muhammad was a great leader of his time for whom politics, religious rituals, and social welfare were bound together in the proper religious life. The mercy of Allah is that Allah gave the Koran to Muhammad so dictating the right way to live and believe. Beyond the literal meaning is the intention of Allah to guide and direct. The manner by which mercy is expressed changes according to circumstances. What's wrong with literalists like yourself and also Muslim literalists is that you and they cannot understand that the theme of mercy extends over and above historical circumstances.
You write " where in the Quran". You would not have asked that question if you had understood that a theme underlies all the particular bits and pieces.
How can your views be reliable and credible if you have NOT read the Quran thoroughly and understood [not necessary agree] it main theme?
I have read and researched the Quran thoroughly.
There is the historical factor but what is critical are the ETERNAL generic divine principles/doctrines from ALLAH that override all other factors, i.e. historical, literally, social, etc.
I don't see you are aware of the above.
I have provided a 'clue' i.e. 61% of the verses contain evil elements that condemned non-Muslims in the most derogatory and evil manner. The other I mentioned is the Quran is worst than the Main Kempf in terms of anti-Jews. There are many more elements that put the non-Muslims in the worst derogatory position.
I have done a thorough analysis and organize all the 6236 verses of the Quran into one central theme and it is inherently evil. This central theme of evil is supported with glaring evidence by the terrible evils and violence committed by SOME evil prone Muslims.
Note this First Chapter of the Quran;
- 1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
2. All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).
3. The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
4. The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)
5. You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything).
6. Guide us to the Straight Way
7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians).
This Quran is published by the Saudi Government and all Muslims [the most pious] who attend the Pilgrimage in Mecca are given a copy.
The first chapter of the Quran is repeated 18 times a day during Muslim prayers.
Note verse 1:7 there is already implanted hatred of Jews & Christians and Muslims are brainwashed on a daily basis 5 times a day to hate Jews and Christians at the least subconsciously.
In verse 1:7, the phrase (such as the Jews) and (such as the Christians) are in brackets, i.e. not from the original Quran.
However most the Muslim clerics will expound 1:7 where those who angered Allah the most are the Jews and Christians are astrayed [the worst sin in the Quran]. They will provide all the supporting verses from elsewhere in the Quran and Ahadiths. These points of hatred with others in the Quran are triggered into real evil acts against Jews and Christians and the evidence worldwide is so glaring.
Read Chapter 1 in the same Quran with supporting footnotes.
Note a true Muslim who had entered into a covenant/contract has no choice but to carry out his obligated and contracted promise as a divine duty which is commanded in the Quran, i.e. the hatred for non-Muslims and kill them where applicable. If they do not do what is promised they will go to Hell.
This Chapter 1 - Al Fatihah extol the qualified and conditional mercifulness and compassion of Allah but on the side, is filled with hate for the non-Muslims, in this case the Jews and Christians [2 billion]. This is also the obvious clue to the central theme of the Quran and Islam.
If you read on to Chapter 2, the world of evil in Islam will open before your eyes.
Don't be so blind and insult your own intelligence, read the Quran thoroughly before you make any apology for Islam per se as benign.
