Areh Jawaid Bhai, the baby in the bathtub is not circumcision. It’s adDeeni Haneefan. Then why are you distorting the picture?
You know why the West does not see God in their scientific knowledge of the creation? It is because they are not a people of pure natural beliefs. Only a Haneef can see adDeeni Haneef and the Creator of it.
Who is disputing that Jews and Christian are our friends in any matter religious or political. Can we not see how they are celebrating the 100 year celebration of the Balfour Declaration?
YOU SAY: Abraham started his quest by observing the signs of the universe which led to him rejecting the idols, gods, and nonsense that religions creates for the natural world.
TOTALLY FALSE. Your reference to 2:260 is laughable. It is in complete contradiction of your ability and scholarship. The following are the verses that I stand by:
6:74 Remember when Abraham said to his father Azar (Terah), 'How could you worship idols as gods? I see you and your people are in obvious error.' [Azar is called Terah in the Bible and Zarah in Talmud]
6:75 And to this end, We gave Abraham insight into the Mighty Dominion of the Universe so that he might attain firm conviction.
6:76 (Some of his people were idolaters and others were Nature- worshipers.) One night when it grew dark upon him he saw a planet (Venus). He said, 'This is my Lord.' But when it set, he said, 'I do not love things that fade away.'
6:77 (Another night) when he saw the moon rising in splendor, he said, 'This is my Lord.' But when it set, he said, 'Unless my Lord guides me, I will be of those who go astray.'
6:78 (In the morning) when he saw the sun rising in splendor, he said, 'This is my Lord. This is greater!' But when it set, he said, 'O My people! I am free of all your idolatry.' [Of course, Abraham knew that the celestial bodies were not gods. He is only preaching to his people by example]
6:79 'I have focused firmly on Him Who initiated the heavens and earth. As an upright man turning away from all that is false, I will never be an idolater.'
So what if their text of Old and New Testament was unprotected? How much of your understanding and interpretation of Qur’an is protected?
