3.4 Muslims Surrender Their Lives to God
This book informs people around the world of a manmade cancer that may lead to the destruction of many lives and possibly our earth. It should be of great interest to Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religious leaders for they are part of the problem that has caused division among God-loving people. That division is the use of the belief of God by Religious and Ruling Authorities (RRAs) to control their followers with the objectives to acquire the wealth and resources of other countries.
Today we are witnessing that Muslim terrorists groups are aggressively and forcefully achieving the RRA objectives with greater frequency. Islamic religious leaders follow the belief revealed in their Holy Scripture, the Qur’an, which indicates they have the only true religion. This belief is so ingrained in the minds of all Muslims that they believe they are commanded by Allah to unify their belief for all people. Differences by Muslim religious followers over the beliefs held by other people have resulted in bigotry, hate, violence, and the killing of innocent people in many, many countries.
In fairness, this book identifies many abominable verses in the Judaic and Christian scriptures. It is therefore imperative for religious leaders to read this book carefully to gain a clear understanding why they must work together to unify their Judaic, Christian, and Islamic beliefs in one God . After all, they all truly pray to the same God. It is their scriptures that must be improved to further the moral and spiritual growth of mankind. This is a challenge that can be successfully accomplished if they work together to unify their beliefs in the one-universal God and teach the Word of God.
To begin on a practical course of action, all believers of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions must loudly proclaim that they disavow the teaching to kill people who believe in God in a different way. They must hold their religious leaders accountable for the abominable behavior that endorses hate, violence, and the killing of innocent people by putting them in locked cages as you would for any mean, unreasonable animal. Only the people themselves can effect change. Religious leaders will be resistant to change due to inculcated dogma that they cannot let go of. They will need the assistance of daughters and sons of God ; people who are gifted with perceptive, intelligent minds, and loving hearts.
This book focuses on the Islamic religion due to the many groups of fanatical men who believe they follow the Word of God in the Qur’an. To present a fair assessment of why there are large numbers of Muslims that believe they follow the only true religion, it was necessary to present the views of two highly respected Muslims who have both authored a history of Islam. They have served as excellent resources to reveal the prevalent views many Muslims are taught and devoutly believe.
Upon presenting traditional religious beliefs of Muslims, this book provides a clear, objective understanding of the Qur’an by letting the Qur’an speak for itself. Whole suras are given so that the reader is assured they read a truthful and honest appraisal of The Qur’an. Any defense by Muslim Imams, Caliphs, and Mullahs to refute the findings and conclusions of this book are welcomed. It is only through open discussion with honest and truthful efforts can there be any beginning to establish world peace.
It is incumbent upon religious leaders and followers of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions to be open to change whereby they can agree on the worship of one-universal God. God does not subjugate His followers to bow down to Him and control their lives, but to honor Him by developing their mental and spiritual gifts, embrace knowledge, and obey His command – love one another.
This author has surfaced verses in Judaic, Christian, and Islamic scripture to inform and educate people that their religious documents, believed to be sacred, can be improved upon because they contain not only myths but many abominations that incite hate, bigotry, violence and the killing of innocent people.
The public must become aware that beliefs, set in scripture, are indeed created by men to achieve harmony within their community by specifying a set of moral codes. To objectively assess the beliefs of the three religions mentioned, it was necessary for me to read the Torah, Gospels and Revelation, and the Qur’an. But this study was not undertaken until I became fully cognizant of the history of the first formal religion conceived over thousands of years. It is the ancient Egyptian religion developed and formalized by the Egyptian priesthood.
The study of Egypt’s religion surfaced facts well documented in stone as far back as 3500 BCE. Published in 2009, those facts were assembled in Future of God Amen. In a methodical fashion, I revealed that it was the Egyptian priesthood that first developed the concept of a soul, a hereafter where the soul joins its god for eternity, a belief that the pharaoh is the Son of God, and after the worship of many gods, they finally conceived the belief in one universal God. By 1270 BCE, the Priesthood of Amon wrote the hymn, Amon as the Sole God. Due to their limited view of the world, this universal God was only introduced to the neighboring countries of Nubia, Palestine and Syria, and as far north as Mitanni east of the Euphrates River.
The Universal Egyptian God Amen AKA Amun AKA Amon
The above introduction serves to inform the reader that it was the Egyptian religion that influenced the development of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions. If you would like to gain a detailed history of how the major religions came to emulate the core religious beliefs of the Egyptian religion, refer to either of two books presented on the website www.futureofgodamen.com .
The first book, Future of God Amen, conclusively reveals that Egyptian religious beliefs were emulated by the three major religions. It is a historical novel with 373 pages that provides a detailed history of the development of Egypt’s religious beliefs that finally culminated in the concept of one-universal God. The second book, AMEN, The Beginning of the Creation of God provides less detail of Egypt’s development as a civilization but focuses more on the linkage of the beliefs emulated by the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions.
Future of God Amen
A Nicholas Ginex Book
Both books contain a detailed outline of the beliefs taught to followers of the major religions. In addition, many of the abominations in the scriptures of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions that incite bigotry, hate, violence, and the killing of innocent people were included. The objective was to give a fair appraisal of all three religions and show that their scriptures are in dire need of revision. The Egyptian priesthood revised their beliefs from many gods to finally evolve the concept of one-universal God. If Egyptian priests were intelligent and flexible enough to revise their belief system many times, advancing from the belief in multiple gods to finally one universal god, it becomes clear that scripture is not encased in stone, but can be improved upon as mankind gains greater knowledge about themselves and the world.
Future of God Amen and AMEN, the Beginning of the Creation of God challenges religious leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions to unify their beliefs and teach God’s last command. Presented in John’s Gospel, this command was announced three times by a Man of God – love one another. These books allow the reader to investigate and ponder facts and findings brought to light by Egypt’s historical records that answer the following questions:
* Did the Egyptian Priesthood develop and document the first formal religion?
* Does Genesis of the Bible contain phrases that originated from Egyptian hymns?
* Is God’s greatest and last command love one another?
* Is Amen, the first universal God, Maker of all mankind, Creator and Maker of all that is?
* Did Jesus Christ proclaim that Amen is “the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God?”
* Did Jesus Christ believe he was a Son of Man or a Son of God?
* Is the Trinity, which defines God as three persons, valid?
As a member of two forums, Gather and Theology , I wrote over 60 articles that resulted in two other books titled, Amen and Jesus’ Revelation and God, Us and the Universe. These articles allowed me to expand upon my personal views about religion, spiritual matters, morality and ethics, politics, and even the creation of the universe. An overview of these books is provided on the website www.futureofgodamen.com .
After writing five books, I thought I was finished with writing another book. However, my Internet research efforts in documenting religious abominations for the previous books brought me to the Iran Politics Club (IPC) website. There, I found a photograph that showed an Iranian woman about to be stoned to death. The agony and pain shown on her face brought tears to my eyes. To see a woman be stoned to death because she loved a man compelled me to reach out to the world and let people know of this fowl abomination. I was so incensed that I became committed to write my next book titled, Allah, We, Our and Us.
Whether the Iranian woman loved a man when single (fornication) or married (adultery), stoning her to death is not justified. The greatest command given by God was announced three times by a Man of God and it is simply – I command you to love one another. Love given in or out of marriage with tenderness, sincerity, compassion, and understanding is not a sin. Love is a natural aspect of human beings and as long as it is given with sincerity and respect to welcome a person to be part of your life it is not a sin. Only when a person desires to appease a sexual appetite or develops a relationship made up of lies to make a fool out of another to appease that appetite, then it is a sin. Control of one’s desires and respect for the dignity of others is what must be taught and not that God wants you to be stoned to death when love is given tenderly and honestly.
The photograph of the Iranian woman to be stoned to death appears on the cover of Allah, We, Our and Us and is presented below. A picture is worth a thousand words but this photo exceeds that estimate tenfold.
Allah, We, Our & Us
A Nicholas Ginex Book
There is an inconsistency in the morality of Islamic religious leaders to stone to death a person who loved another when they allow marriages between older men and young women who have no desire for the marriage arrangement. Such prearranged marriages are against the natural law of selection as it is based upon the sexual appetites of men. Natural selection is nature’s inherent way of improving the race as people are able to find attributes they admire in another and naturally desire to see those attributes become a part of their child. To hinder this process of natural selection only results in bringing into our world children that are not fully loved and may increase the appearance of undesirable traits in the births that follow.
Allah, We, Our and Us has been written to inform and educate people around the world about an impending threat by Islamic religious and ruling leaders that have an objective to assimilate the free world under their religion. In the attempt to give a fair assessment of the Islamic religion, I have objectively revealed the faults of the other two monotheistic religions, Judaism and Christianity. No effort is made to denigrate the three major religions, but to reveal their faults so that religious leaders and followers acknowledge the dire need to revise their scriptures and teach God’s last command presented in John’s Gospel. This command was announced three times by a Man of God – love one another. A challenge for religious leaders of these faiths is to unify their beliefs in the worship of one-universal God. A breakthrough for successfully meeting this challenge will be their acknowledgment that Amen, announced at the end of a prayer, a supplication to God, giving thanks for an outcome, or sung with reverence, is the first universal God.
In the United States, political correctness (PC) has become an accepted norm that pervades news reporting, media talk shows, and publishing houses, which ultimately prevents the American people to discern and understand real events. To counter the PC veil of ignorance, Allah, We, Our and Us provides knowledge for people to see the looming threat of Islam encroaching on the freedoms of many democratic countries.
President Obama has directed an implementation policy of political correctness. As a result, the U.S. government has changed the way it trains agents to combat terrorism and violent extremism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism. Over 700 pages of documents from about 300 military and academic presentations given to agents since the 2001 terrorist attacks have been purged. The Joint Chiefs of Staff has collected counterterrorism training materials at all military academies and academic centers such as the National Defense Intelligence College and the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center. The White House goal is to banish any material that could be viewed as offensive to Muslims. The suppression of Muslim violence and terrorism is due to officials in the White House and Islamic organizations jointly working to implement PC policy.
A prime objective of the President of the United States is to insure the safety of its citizens and other residing nationals that have opted to live in America. This objective seems to be ignored by President Obama as he believes in diplomacy with terrorist organizations is better than confrontation that may lead to war. This is a sound policy when there is real cooperation from Islamic nations where much of the terrorist organizations operate from. But it is clear that imams, caliphs and mullahs do not publically denounce terrorism in their mosques or on public media. The President’s precautionary approach has emboldened aggressive countries to ignore the might of the U.S. and has insidiously enlarged the threat by Islamic countries throughout the globe.
There is some truth in that indoctrination of a young mind can forever influence the decision-making process well into adulthood. We witness today that Islamic scholars, reputed to be well educated and intelligent, are blinded by the indoctrination they have received at an early age before reason has had a chance to develop due to the teachings of the Qur’an. President Obama was indoctrinated at an early age in the dogma of the Qur’an and it may be this early upbringing that has caused him to be amicable toward extremist Muslim organizations. We all reflect the body of data fed into our minds at an early age and very few people are capable of throwing off the shackles of dogma inculcated as a child.
Allah, We, Our and Us has been written to lift the PC veil of ignorance and challenge the fear of reprisal from those who are not willing to engage in one of the most important freedoms we have – free speech. Without the freedom to discuss openly political or religious subjects, we eliminate the possibility of resolving differences and finding optimum solutions. Silence and passiveness prevents open discussions whereby people can learn to understand their differences and come to realize there are better paths to living peaceful and fruitful lives.
Due to political correctness, this author had to terminate a publishing contract because they would not allow an Iranian woman that was to be stoned to death on the cover of Allah, We, Our and Us. It illustrates her agony and pain. It was this image that motivated this writer to obtain another publisher to reveal for people around the world the abominations sanctioned in the Qur’an and carried out by Muslim extremists.
This article informs and educates people to understand why Islamic religious leaders provoke Muslim extremists to kill and forcefully subjugate people in many countries to establish a Theocratic Islamic Empire. Examining the Qur’an in an unbiased manner by simply using unaltered verses, we will be able to learn why Muslim extremism has always been endemic in Islamic history and continues to advance in the modern world.
To give a fair assessment of the Islamic religion, Allah, We, Our and Us presents the beliefs and traditions of Muslims, which was obtained from two highly respected Islamic scholars, Ph.D. Osman Sheikh Ahmed and Mr. Syed Hossein Nasr. They independently authored more than fifty books and exceeded over 500 articles dealing with Islamic beliefs. Their views allowed an assessment that reveals the mind set of Muslims indoctrinated with dogma taught from the Qur’an and implemented with Sharia Law. These two scholars, however, did not reveal any of the abominations presented in section 4.0, which verifies that highly educated men indoctrinated at an early age in the dogma of the Qur’an will turn a blind eye to Islamic atrocities but continue to praise their religion.
To offer an alternate set of views, I presented articles written by former followers of the Islamic religion to understand why they have repudiated this religion. They courageously expressed that the dignity of human beings requires freedom of thought acquired by access to books in all spheres of life. They prefer to achieve their aspirations with a free-thinking, objective mind not constrained by fanatical religious leaders that forbids the attainment of world knowledge revealed by our greatest minds and exposure to other religious beliefs.
The dogma of religious scripture largely provides the moral standards by which followers are enabled to live together in harmony. To do this, leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions have developed the concepts of reward and punishment, namely heaven and hell. But these religions have either isolated people from those who follow different beliefs or forced their beliefs on others, whereby they have created bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of innocent people.
Of the three monotheistic religions, it is the Islamic religion that today looms as the common threat to world peace as religious leaders and their followers forcefully encroach on the political and economic systems of countries around the world. Islamic terrorists systematically expand their Islamic beliefs; their ultimate objective is to create an ummah, which is a community of people that are subjugated with the same belief. The figure below illustrates the Islamic objective for Islam to subjugate and dominate the world.
3.1 Religion of Truth to Prevail Over Every Other Religion
A prevalent teaching by imams, caliphs and mullahs is incessant indoctrination that Islam is the true religion, the Religion of Truth, and may prevail over every other religion. To learn why this dogma is forms the psyche of the Muslim mind we must understand that the central axiom of Islam is the Unity of the Creator. The corollary of this all-important axiom is the unity of the created order, above all the unity of mankind. Being a Muslim means surrendering to the Creator. The core practicality of this concept is living a life in unity with others and behaving in a way that promotes the integration of mankind.1
To explore this concept of Unity with the Creator further, I commend Islamic scholars, Ph.D. Osman Sheikh Ahmed 2 and Mr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr 3 for their novels that provide the history and traditions of the Islamic religion. Both authors have dedicated their efforts to enlighten people to appreciate Muslim beliefs and elucidate the teachings of the Qur’an with the hope that greater understanding will facilitate an amicable relationship with Muslims around the world. With great respect I have provided a brief biography of these two Islamic scholars in Allah, We, Our and Us.
Mr. Nasr substantiates the key concept of Unity with the Creator by defining the establishment of the ummah, which is the totality of people who are Muslims and constitute the Islamic world. He contends that Islam sees history itself in religious terms and refers to other people not primarily by their linguistic or ethnic affiliations but by their religious identity. The Islamic ummah is the integration of mankind, bound by solidarity to the Qur’an message of Divine Oneness and Sovereignty, the Prophet Muhammad as its messenger, and acceptance of Shariah, the Divine Law. An understanding of Islam is based on the significance of the ummah and the reality that it promotes and exists as a single religious community. 4
To insure that I can rely on a translation of the Qur’an that has not been altered due to political correctness over the past 100 years, I have obtained one of the earliest translations titled, The Qur’an. It was written in 1893 by Muhammad Zafrulla Khan 5. The Qur’an sura verses quoted herein are from this source.
The concept of religious unity of all people is based on an indoctrinated premise stated in the Qur’an that Islam is the only “true religion.” This premise causes Muslims to believe that they are sanctioned by God to unify all people. Such a belief leads Muslims to promote the integration of mankind under one religion that is to prevail over every other religion. The following sura distinctly defines Islam as “the true religion” and motivates its followers to fight those who do not follow their beliefs.
Sura 9:29. Fight those from among the People of the Book who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last day, nor hold as unlawful that which Allah and His Messenger have declared to be unlawful nor follow the true religion, and who have not yet made peace with you, until they pay the tax (tribute) willingly and make their submission.
The first word of this sura is “Fight,” which does not leave open the alternative to compromise and reach a peaceful consensus among the people of the Book who have differences in the belief in God, the Last day, or hold that which Allah and His Messenger Muhammad have declared to be unlawful, or to follow Islam as “the true religion.”
Is this sura an order from Allah to fight those who do not believe in Him, His Messenger and Islam as being the true religion? Or is this an order from a party of men who strongly believe they are sanctioned by Allah to invite goodness, to enjoin equity, and to forbid evil? This is a very relevant question for the answer provides why Muslim fanatics literally interpret the Qur’an to fight and kill innocent people in the name of God. It is a question that will repeatedly present itself as we read and interpret actual suras of the Qur’an.
The traditional belief in unity is uniquely tied to Sura 9:29 (given above). It promotes a forceful means to subjugate people with other religious beliefs to believe in “the true religion.” However, readers of the Qur’an will find that it is a party of religious men that speak for Allah as shown below.
Sura 9:33. He it is Who sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, that He may make it prevail over every other religion, even though those who associate partners with Allah may dislike it.
The above verse clearly reveals that it is not God but a third person speaking for Allah and his messenger Muhammad. The minds of Muslim worshippers are indoctrinated to believe Islam is not only the “Religion of Truth” but also, Allah will make Islam “prevail over every other religion.” Promulgating these views does not respect the fact that God has introduced Himself to different people at different times throughout history. The following subsections reveal that many portions of the Qur’an have been written by a party of religious men to subjugate, command, and control the minds of their followers. But first let us understand that the purpose of Shariah law is to implement the Qur’an by Islamic religious leaders.
It should be understood by all people and followers of the Islamic religion that it is the Qur’an that represents revelations from God and that the Prophet Muhammad is only God’s Messenger. With this axiom in mind, it is the Qur’an that is the ultimate source from God and not the sayings of a man - the Prophet Muhammad. To place Muhammad on the same level of authority as God, as indicated in the third line of Sura 9:29 above, is to abrogate the fundamental belief that it is God and God alone who is the Creator of all there is and provides commands and guidance by which His creations are to conduct their lives. Even Jesus Christ does not enjoy the extensive worship given Muhammad whereby Muslims emulate the way he conducted his life by religiously following his sayings (hadiths attributed to him) in the Sunnah.
The oneness of God and His authority is the highest belief taught by religious leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions. This revelation given in the Qur’an is not new but rather a reminder that God does not need any associates or assistance in providing justice or punishment to his creations. The Sunnah is only a supplemental, man-made document whereby imams, caliphs, and Islamic scholars have used the Prophet’s sayings to establish a system of law, known as Shariah Law, which forms the basis to control a theocratic nation.
Mr. Nasr writes, “the Shariah has immutable, absolute, and unalterable principles, which are of Divine origin that reflects the word of Allah in the Qur’an and the hadiths of Muhammad.” He further contends that Shariah contains the possibility of growth and application to whatever situation Muslims face. This ability to grow and to adapt to any situation at any time in history has been demonstrated by the legal jurisprudence compiled by the many imams of great scholarship. Mr. Nasr contends, “Islam believes that the factor (mechanism) to make the times and coordinate human society must be the Shariah. Human beings must seek to live according to the Will of God as embodied in the Shariah and not change the Law of God according to the changing patterns of society based on the impermanence of human nature.” 6
The Islamic view that Shariah is based upon the sayings of Muhammad (Sunnah) and divine verses of the Qur’an requires that any additions to accommodate changes in patterns of society strictly adhere to the Will and Law of God. This view is false and not truthful when one considers that it is men of scholarship and devout love of God that have interpreted and expanded on the Qur’an with Sunnah hadiths to address changing times and patterns of society.
It is man that formulates the ways in which to provide truth and justice by writing a system of law for the Islamic people. True, this law referred to as the Shariah is grounded in tenets of the Qur’an and Sunnah, but it is written by men of great scholarship and not God. For this reason, the Shariah can be changed with changing times and changing patterns of society and should not be deemed infallible but open to improvements as mankind acquires more knowledge about himself and God.
Although the Qur’an and Sunnah with its many hadiths form Shariah law, the oneness of God is embodied in the Qur’an. However, in the Qur’an there is reason to believe that others have injected their will and thereby preempted God’s authority. There are ambiguities in the Qur’an that must be clarified as to whether they are revelations from one-universal God or by man. The ambiguities that deserve attention will be revealed in section 4.0.
The Arabic term jihad means “exertion in the path of God.” This exertion or act for God has several applications. One meaning of jihad is the struggle to protect Islam and its borders. There is a distinction between the lesser and the greater jihad defined by the Prophet Muhammad to his companions. After a major battle in which the very existence of the Islamic community was at stake he said, “Verily, ye have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.” When one of the companions asked what was the greater jihad? Muhammad answered, “To battle against your passionate souls,” which is a duty toward God to strive against one’s desires.
Mr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr has succinctly captured the Muslim view of Islam, whereby they see,
“Jihad as vigilance against all that distracts us from God and exertion to do His Will within ourselves as well as preserving and reestablishing the order and harmony that He has willed for Islamic society and the world about us.” 7
It is this view that imams, caliphs and mullahs have been inculcated with the Qur’an and the belief that Islam is the only true religion. They, in turn, indoctrinate their followers to believe an Islamic world would be for the benefit of all mankind to achieve unity with the Creator to establish order and harmony. Hence, Muslims believe they are ordered by God to establish order and harmony even if it means the subjugation and control of all people who have different religious beliefs. Their ultimate objective is to establish the ummah that is supported by a Theocratic Islamic Empire.
A truism that is ingrained into Muslim belief has been succinctly stated by Osman S. Ahmed, Ph.D., “The core message of Islam is contained in its name–Islam, which means submission to the Creator and complete surrender of one’s will and life to Him.” 8 Dr. Ahmed further summarizes this basic tenet of Islam below:
“Islam starts with the concept of surrender and submission to God – the Creator, the Cherisher, the Beginning and End of all things, the Lord in Whose Hands lie everything, and Who has control over all things, the Merciful, the Omnipotent, and the Ultimate Reality. The word Islam literally means surrender or submission, and the one who surrenders is a Muslim.” 9
Islam also has the same root as Salam, which means peace in Arabic. Dr. Ahmed believes that “true peace of mind comes from transcending our egos, the contingencies of our circumstances, the opinions of others, concern for what others may give or withhold–surrendering to the ultimate Reality that is God.” 10
“The corollary of the Surrender to the Creator, and to Him alone, is the realization that nothing and nobody besides Him has power over us or can command power over our lives and wills.” 11
To summarize, the core message of Islam is contained in the name–Islam, which means submission to the Creator and complete surrender of one’s will and life to Him. Dr. Ahmed believes that “Islam is the last of the great revelations that requires of the believer a deep conviction that only God is, and that all else is relative. Nothing is absolutely Real but the Creator. All else is a mere possibility, that may or may not be actualized. God is necessary for existence, while humanity and the entire created order are mere possibilities that are not necessary for existence to be complete. In reality, our very existence is a shadow of His. Total surrender to the Reality that is God is the essence of Islam. Anyone who fully surrenders to his Creator is a Muslim.” 12 Note that to the Muslim believer, God is a Reality, not a belief revealed by the accumulation of Judaic and Christian beliefs.
The above view by Dr. Ahmed that nothing is absolutely Real but the Creator illustrates the kind of indoctrination that is given to Muslims. What was once faith in God, who in truth is unknowable, mysterious, and incomprehensible, is reversed into being an absolute Reality. God being a Reality is so strongly inculcated into the minds of Muslims that it bounds their lives to complete surrender to God. Faith is a wonderful inspiration and aspiration, but honesty and truthfulness are what all must aspire to in our efforts to learn and know God.
Nobody has seen or knows God except through the man-made attributes given by Islamic religious leaders to create the Reality of God. They have assembled ninety-nine names to allow the Muslim follower to envisage God. Some names are attributes assigned to God and other names are abilities to envision His omnificence and thereby perceive the “Reality” of Allah. This “Reality” is man-made to assist the imagination of Muslims and embed into their minds a reality that does not truly exist.
The fabrication of the image of God that nobody has seen is another reason why the Qur’an must be updated. But more significant, there is a dire need to revise suras in the Qur’an that motivate Islamic religious leaders and their followers to become bigoted, distrust and hate those who do not believe in Allah, cause violence towards people who believe in God differently, will kill people who refuse belief of Islam as the true religion, and even commit suicide in taking the lives of others in their commitment to completely surrender their will and life to Allah.
Truth is the basis in learning about God and it can only be attained by reflection of why God has created human beings with a consciousness. That consciousness, inherent in all living matter, strives at its highest levels of intellect to understand its existence by reaching out to the unknowable, mysterious, and incomprehensible essence of God – a consciousness that pervades the universe and created all there is. In his attempt to understand his existence mankind formulated rules of conduct so that human beings can live together in harmony using the belief in God as conceived by his intellect.
Face of Islamic Tolerance!
This section should give people an understanding of the Muslim mind. The following section will reveal that a party of men identified as “We, Our and Us” act for Allah and are sanctioned in the Qur’an to implement abominable acts that result in violence and murder.
