I really love and respect you for your sincere writing. One thing I want to tell you that Muslims never taught their followers as how to live in harmony and love among other Non Muslims. While followers of other religions learnt as how to adjust with others and observing the laws and regulations of alien countries.
In India the minorities have full freedom. The vast majority of Hindus are not religious fundamentalists and respect others. Of course a thin minority in Hindus is consisting of very zealots like RSS Bajrang Dal etc. India has more Muslim population than Pakistan. However, Pakistan leadership never learned to go with the Indian Government in peace and harmony for the welfare of their suffering class. More than 40 years Pakistan was under the rule of Army Generals. Even the founder leader and others were assassinated by religious zealots or Generals.
While the majority in India and Pakistan are living under abject poverty the leaders are purchasing weapons at the cost of poor man life.

Good to hear from you in such a while. I hope all is well with you and your family.
What you are trying to establish from covenant and circumcision is not clear from your abstract. Can you please, explain your point of view.
Among the chosen ones, I think, Maryam elahy salaam is the only woman mentioned by ALLAH taala. Mrs. Adam was created for Adam's pleasure and for the regeneration of his kind. Both of them made the mistake and both of them apologized so both of them received the pardon from ALLAH subhanahu wa taala alazeem. Iblees did not apologize and became Shaytaan.
May ALLAH help us to correct our mistakes and guide us to Islam.
