The point being here is that if a book is from the Creator of everything, it’s quite rational to conclude that this unique Being must be very intelligent and wise, to a level that is perhaps beyond human comprehension.
Some people question the use of ‘He’ in the Quran. Does this mean that the Creator is a man? The Creator, according to these verses, is not like anything. It’s just that in Arabic, the original language of the Quran, like many other languages, there is only male and female, no neuter.
The point here is that the biggest problem that people tend to have with Islam is actually not really a valid criterion by which to judge it.
the Quran seems to be unlike any other scripture from at least one angle, and that is the nearly undisputed fact of its preservation and authenticity. Then again, how many of the issues that people have with Islam are actually to do with the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet as opposed to the behaviour of Muslims?
Certainly none of us want to be conned or taken for a ride by a fraudster or end up following a madman. Of course a good fraudster will do everything in his or her power to make you think that they are sincere and truthful.
What follows is going to lead you to a conclusion that for some might come as a shocking truth. Others might have suspected it already. One thing is for sure, once you know the truth your life can never be the same. It will always be with you.
What follows is only for people who are really to put prejudice aside, to think a little deeply and follow the most reasonable conclusion.
Perhaps I should have warned you a bit more that the conclusions of this rational approach might mean going completely against your desires and the things that you think you want in life.
There are a few other religions that one might mention. Sikhism is similar to Buddhism in the sense that it doesn’t claim to be of divine origins, at least not directly.
There are two usual responses to such a question. Either: “No, He can’t”, which contradicts what the Christians previously said about God being able to do anything, or “Yes, He can if He wanted to but God never would do anything evil because the nature of God is good.”
What exactly does it say about the Creator? Which religion teaches that there is One Unique Creator whose nature is different from the creation: One, Eternal, Self-Sufficient, Transcendent Creator?
There is simply no compelling reason to assume that whatever your parents and ancestors believed was the truth, and it also does not make any reasonable sense just to ‘believe’ and take a leap of faith without any sort of reasonable justification.
