Dear sum, I do not have difficulty in answering your questions but it is up to you to make proper sense of things in the quran in its own proper context. I have stated clearly that in the quranic context people only matter if they do something according to the revealed message of God. If you read surah 2 verses 124 etc you will see what God told abraham despite the fact that life of abraham and his companions is an excellent example for humanity see 60/4. The quran does not put forth any human being as free of all mistakes including messengers of God. What sincere Godly people do is they do not dwell upon their mistakes instead they correct their mistakes and that is why they are excellent examples for Godly people among human beings.sum wrote:Mughal has a difficult question to overcome and which he has so far refused to answer. While Mughal claims that the impressions we get from the Koran are wrong and the message is basically peaceful, when asked if Muhammad acted in accordance with the message of the Koran and the evil deeds perpetrated by Muhammad were in accord with the teaching of the Koran he leaves the thread because he can not answer this without either criticising Muhammad or the Koran. Despite all the evil deeds perpetrated by Muhammad there are no criticisms in the Koran and so one can only conclude that Muhammad did actually follow "Allah`s" the guidance in the Koran.
This is a major stumbling block for Mughal which is why he will not answer the question of whether Muhammad fully understood, and acted upon, the guidance of "Allah" in the Koran.
A human is born as a baby and grows both in mind and body. During this process a human makes plenty of mistakes as you will know from your own mistakes in your life time. We are supposed to learn from our mistakes and move on. God did not expect people to make no mistakes but to continue learning and improving ourselves according to his set standard. So long as we do that we are fine. God has set us a standard as a target to achieve and we are supposed to work towards that. One day mankind will reach that target with help and support of each other. If we look back at human history we have made a lot of progress and that is how we are going to continue till we reach the top end of spectrum.
As for life of muhammad the messenger of God, he was not free of all mistakes but what people attribute to him is in question. The reason it is in question is because people who have ulterior agendas do attribute falsehood to good people in order to discredit them. Since the quran alone is word of God and it testifies the character of muhammad was excellent see 69/1therefore anything other people attribute to him against the quran cannot be accepted. It is a simple explanation which makes perfect sense.
The main thing we need to realise is this that the quran can be interpreted rationally and I have shown how. The quran does not accept miracles and make beliefs or useless practices. The quran is a rational book that forces mankind to accept it as word of God on that basis.
Let us think about what hindus believe ie they believe God incarnates. Was it necessary for God to incarnate? My answer is absolutely not? My challenge to all hindus is prove necessity for God for incarnation. They cannot. You can try on their behalf and so can others on this forum. They cannot. Today no human being claims he is a God incarnate in our world who could prove his such claim. Very same question and challenge stands for all who accept this idea or belief including christians who claim jesus was God incarnate. Who represents jesus today who can prove his any such claim? None.
Let us go into idea of miracles and ask the same question ie are miracles necessary for proving existence of God? If yes why? Are we who claim to believe in God today do so on basis of rational revealed message of God or miracles or because of concept of God incarnation? Who has seen any miracle and by who? Who has seen any God incarnate person in person? No one. Such claims can never be proven no matter what. If we can believe in God today without any need for miracles then why could not the people in the past? The same goes for idea of God incarnation. All we need is a book which explains things rationally consistently which the quran does.
The quran tells us God never performed any miracles instead he revealed his messages through his messengers to educate mankind to be proper human beings. We only have two acts of God ie creation and revelation. This is why people who believe in God incarnation or miracles are holding onto falsehood.
Existence of God can only and only be proven through rational explanation using creation and revelation as evidences. This is why deen of islam is not a religion because it does not support make beliefs and useless practices. I have explained many things in my explanation of the quranic text towards which most people have never paid much attention for various reasons including being ignorant or illiterate or uneducated or lacking in higher level of thinking skills.
This is why people are doing disservice to their alleged God sent books by misinterpreting them provided they can be interpreted rationally consistently.
Why is there something rather than nothing or how can anything come out of nothing at all?

So belief in God is a proper rational position to have because whatever we attribute our origin to has to be attributed with Godly attributes so it is a case labelling something one way or the other but there is no real difference in actual purpose of ultimate reality.
Likewise proper position to have is belief in origin of revelation of God because that is the only rational position that makes sense of all that exists. However the message of God has to be rational or it cannot make any sense of all that exists.
regards and all the best.
