(Dedicated to David Wood)
This topic might be shocking for some, I know. Its only because of the lack of knowledge about Islam and Quran. As a Muslim believer, in the past, I used to believe, whatever you can possibly think good can be found in the Quran, every good deed has been ordered by Quran, Quran has no nexus with immorality or Brutality, Quran is great, as Allah, has spoken through his Prophet Muhammad. The interesting thing is despite thinking all those positive things about Quran, Muslims never read it and if they read it, They read it in Arabic without understanding the meaning of Quran. This is the general behavior of the Muslims, I know from my personal experience, I grew up as a Muslim, with my own kind of beliefs about Allah, which were completely different from the generally prevailing perspective of Allah like, fear Allah, I would say, why fear Allah and why not love Him, He is my Creator. Imam of the mosque would say, Allah will burn the sinners in the Hell-fire while I would think why would a creator be so cruel to burn his own creation in the hell, when He Himself knows that Humans tend to make mistakes as He is the creator obviously.
These were my personal thoughts based on my feelings, I wanted to have a very sublime, loving and caring kind of Image of Allah. But generally portrayed image was totally opposite, very dreadful, abhorrent kind of, which I never believed was true, I considered it lack of knowledge of Imams as they only remember a few sermons by heart and keep on repeating them, generally.
David Wood (Great Inspiration)
Now somehow my life took a turn and I got some spare time other than only fulfilling my daily life responsibilities. In this spare time as I was exploring the Youtube I came across a video of David Wood, Christian Apologist(my favorite one), in which he was explaining why Muhammad cannot be a Prophet. I was appalled at first and thought what the hell this guy is talking about, he knows nothing about true Islam and the verses he is quoting from Quran cannot be there or he must be reading some distorted translation of Quran, what the hell he is talking about, Islam is a religion of Peace etc etc. I am a law Graduate and the first thing which came to my mind as a lawyer was to refute/rebut this guy from the same thing on the same verses with true translation of those verses and I started reading the Quran and Hadith myself in order to defend the case of Islam as a lawyer. Obviously it was the matter of my beliefs and integrity. This guy was shaking the whole building of my beliefs but for the very first time in my life I was attracted to reading Quran as he was quoting it like we used to quote case laws in the court. I have been a practicing lawyer for seven years in Pakistan, in courts we make an argument and then support it with already decided case laws on the same point. This guy was doing the same, making an argument and then quoting the supporting reference.
Rebuttal of David Wood
In Muslims its a general tendency to blame west for conspiracies (I don't rule out completely the possibilities of a few conspiracies). Whenever some Jihadi group wage war on Muslims or Non-Muslims , Muslims blame it on west generally. Muslims believe as I used to believe that Quran is a peaceful book and it cannot be ordering any kind of killing, which is wrong. No other book is more violent than Quran.
David Wood Changed My Beliefs
Now My beliefs are totally different. Now I believe Islam is itself a conspiracy and being promoted to fulfill some evil Agenda. Why Muslims preacher Sugar-coat Islam, who Planted Dr. Zakir Naik, a Modern Professor, in order to bring the science and Quran closer.
Whole of the Arabs, The people of language(Arabic), are translating Quran in one way but this modern professor Naik is translating it in his own distorted way. While the Biggest cleric of Saudia is Giving the decree in his book that the earth is flat as Quran says in numerous verses and whoever denies is disbeliever worthy of punishment.
On that point Zakir Naik brings only one Verse of Quran which does not exactly mean egg shaped but he distorted the verse to get the meaning of egg shaped earth,(Which has been refuted by an Arab directly pointing at the claim of Zakir Naik that the earth is egg shaped watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvG-606KqwU) who is funding him to promote the darkness.
Miracle Of Quran
You know I consider it a Real Miracle of Quran when word of Quran clearly means Good then some distant meaning of the same word would also mean Not Good.
This is how the God of Deception, Allah(Not me saying, Allah Says Himself, Quran 3.54 Allah is best of deceivers) has deceived the generations after generation and lured them into Islam.
Another Miracle( HARAAAM.....)
There is another Miracle of Islam which is the biggest one is that when west makes some advancement in science and technology then suddenly some illuminated cleric of Islam springs up and puts a decree of Islam against that and makes it HARAAAM(Illegitimate) for the Muslims. Like when West is thinking about the possibilities of Human population on Mars then some highly Illuminated cleric issues a decree against living on Mars and Makes it HARAAAM for Muslims to live on Mars. For Fatwa News see this link http://english.alarabiya.net/en/variety/2014/02/20/Going-to-Mars-is-Haram-new-fatwa-says-.html)
In fact almost all kind of entertainment is HARRAAM in Islam. Only one entertainment is legitimate i.e. Kill the non-believers, Jews and Christians. Land of Israel belongs to Muslims as if they Inherited from their ancestors but suddenly Jews have occupied that land. Whenever you go into a mosque, the Imam of Mosque would start his sermon before prayer with WAKE UP MUSLIMS, as if some of them are sleeping in the mosque, GO INVADE UK, AMERICA, WAGE WAR ON NON-MUSLIMS with such a passion and anger in his voice that sometime I thought myself that I should Instantly Run to some christian community nearby and kill one or two even before Prayers. But interesting thing about every sermon is that, end of every sermon is same PLEASE DONATE TO THE MOSQUE because monthly pay of IMAM is usually paid from the donations of Mosque.
