the holy koran is the only evidence one does need to prove that Allah exsists. there are many facts in the koran and alot of stories about people who lived long ago. there are alot of scientific facts too, but the question is how did prophet Mohammad ( peace be upon him) knew these facts ? he was an illetrate man who lived more than 1400 years ago ! how did he knew all these things ???? It was ALLAH who sent down the koran on him (peace be upon him) .



THANK ALLAH FOR BEING A MUSLIM

The Bible is one of the proofs that God exists (+ everything that He has created of course Very Happy )....according to the believers of the Bible.

Do you always have to add "peace be upon him"? If Mohammed is the greatest prophet in Islam, does he need "extra peace"?

I don't have a lot of knowledge about Islam, but I thought according to the Muslims Mohammed walked on this planet before Jesus Christ???? Jesus died on the Cross almost 2000years ago.

How did Mohammed "disappear" from earth by the way?



THANK GOD FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN!!!! Very Happy

I know almost nothing about the Qu'uran, but I am interested to learn more.

May I ask you, Loli, what scientific facts are in the Qu'uran that Mohammad received from Allah and put into the book? I would like to know the "chapter and verse" so that I can read them for myself (in translation, of course).

Thank you very much.

Yours truly,

CP

hi everyone ,
sorry i didn't reply sooner ( i was out of the country)


sara , no prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was sent by Allah after Jesus and he died as any normal human being and his grave is in AlMadinah ALMunorah in Saudi Arabia. you can learn more about Islam in here:
http://www.islamicity.com/mosque/quran/
and CP, you can just search in google to know more about Islam .
and there are alot of facts in the koran , one is the explanation of the exact process of the growth of the baby inside his mother .


i'm sorry my english isn't that very well to explain more but you can chek it in the site i gave ubove .


thanks

This assertion that god exists because a prophet (one of many in human history) knew some scientific facts that are in a "holy" book has already been dragged out and beaten to death.

You want my opinion?
People develop faith and "beliefs" because they fear the unknown. End fear, and you end the need for mythology, religion, prophets, holy books, and all the dogma, rituals, wars, and arguments spawned by them.

Religious beliefs are like bad medicine, disguising the symptoms (confusion and anxiety), instead of removing the cause (fear).

I don't care what all the people believe but why do they have to make other people to believe it?

I agree ad-miral. People can believe as best suits them.

If it improves their life - that's great. But people have no right to say their belief is the only correct belief, and then try to force their belief on others. That's a George Bush kind of tactic - ignorant chauvinism.

Just to be clear about my comments. I'm not angry at all. Very Happy

I do not have a religion. I am Ancient Taoist - it's a philosophy for how to live life.

I was raised as a Christian. So as a child I believed in the god of Abraham as the followers of Islam do. However, there are many more gods - yet I don't believe in any one of them. Razz

I'm not looking for agreement or argument. I just shared my opinion. Rolling Eyes

Peace,

religion is a mysterious thing itself.

I agree turtle, chauvinism is very bad. Why don't we just give a bit of love to each other? (and maybe my gf to me, hahaha)

Very Happy Ofcource no one whoever he is can force anybody to beleive or be persuaded .... Confused and although as you said a mysterious yet we have to live our lives in love to each other according to ethics that the pure white heart agree to, love the nature feel it was created to serve ALL humankind
give respect to its powerful abilities and not against it .........
At last we should respect ourselves and the others' ideas and beleifs Rolling Eyes
Then help each other to overcome obstacles in life to cross that world safely keep moral
yours ..
