In 2007, I read two news stories to begin with.
In one:Ahmadnejab-president of Iran claimed that he prays to the God but Bush-president of U.S. prays to the Devil.
In second:Muslim mullahs and scholars sent open letter to the Pope claiming that Muslims and Christians worship same God.
so I wonder: IS THE GOD THE DEVIL ?
Christians believe that Christ was crucified and Muslims believe the opposite that Christ was not crucified;two opposing beliefs cannot be both right.
Further more: I remember one of the explanations by Muslims/Mullahs states that Christ made someone else look like him to be crucified.
That will make Christ a Cheat and a Deceiver and that is, again, opposite to the Christian belief of the Christ the Compassionate.
My name is Tayyab,Aziz. I was born,9 November 1945, in Panjab,India which was partitioned by the British in 1947 into India and Pakistan on religious grounds.
Being born in muslim family, I became citizen of Pakistan. In 1974, I came to Canada as Landed Immigrant and became Canadian citizen in 1978.
When I was young, I was a devout muslim but as I grew older I started to have problem with God, Islam and muslims who,now I believe, are ignorant and illtolerant.
Islamic belief is based on rewards 'swabs' and punishments 'sins' and the objective is to collect more 'swabs' than 'sins' to pass The Judgement.
Failure to practice mandatory items, praying or fasting in Ramadan, will result in automatic collection of 'sins' but one can collect 'sins' by simply questioning.
For example reading Quran is 'swab' and not reading Quran means no 'swab' but if one questions as to why? one is collecting 'sin'.
One can tranfer 'swabs' but not 'sins' e.g. one can,after reading Quran, say that 'swab' of reading Quran go to so and so dead or living.
The idea that questioning the rules will result in collecting 'sins' not just discourages questioning but also instils terror in a muslim child who grows up to be ignorant and illtolerant.
I remember when my son who was at the time a 4-5 year old child recited the Christian prayer, Our Father _ _ _ , I got very angry at him.
Islam's God, Allah, cannot be called Father because Quran specifically states ' He begets not, nor was He begotten '.
Muslims believe in Mohammad's claim that he is the last messenger of God, Allah, who sent messengers before him like Jesus, Soloman, David, Moses with books like Quran.
Muslims are told that those old books have been changed by Christians and Jews and are told not to read those because Quran overrides them all.
But, after that angry burst of mine at my son, I became curious and got a Bible from a co-worker and started reading it and realised mine and other muslims' ignorance.
Quran is believed/claimed to be a book from God, Allah, and brought to Mohammad by angel Gabriel and Bible's new Testament was written by deciples and followers of Jesus.
Therefore, Quran's claim, that it is a book just like the previous book(s), is false and I started to think about and question all claims made by Islam, Mohammad and Quran.
I started to find that the very claims by Mohammad and Quran themselves prove all the claims to be false.
For example the very claim by Mohammad that he receives messages from God, Allah, through Gabriel makes Gabriel the massenger of Allah not him.
Mohammad tells his followers who were praying loud not to pray loud because God, Allah, is so close He can hear their whispers then claims that he went to a distant place to meet Him.
Many places in Quran it says 'Qala Mosa' meaning that these are words of Moses proving itself that it is not the word of God, Allah, as is claimed by Mohammad.
To make it easy to understand let me say: Qala president Kenedy, ask not what your country can do _ _ _ . Just by putting Qala presedent Kenedy I cannot claim his words to be mine.
Therefore, if Quran itself proves Mohammad's claims false, does it not mean that Mohammad is a false prophet and Islam is a false religion?
Furthermore, Islam's claim of being universal and applicable to all is false because it cannot be practiced every where.
In order to understand one needs to use present knowledge of starwars and aliens living elsewhere in the universe and think of applying Islam to e.g. people living on the Moon where Islamic moon calender gets thrown out the window.So no moon calender hence no month of Ramadan to fast and no hajj and no k'aba, no way to face for daily 5 prayers.
Now let us come down to Earth and go to Antarctica where there is night for 6 months and day for 6 months so the daily prayer becomes yearly 5 prayers and no way of daily fasting in the month of Ramadan because Quran has specific instructions as to the timing of the begining of fast at dawn and ending at sunset and Mohammad has given specific instructions as to the timing of prayers: morning 'fajr' at dawn before sunrise, 'zhr' after midday when shadow increases one length, 'asr' after shadow increase two lengths, 'mgrb' after sunset and 'esha' after dusk at night fall.
Therefore muslims living in northern countries like Norway, the land of the midnight sun, can only practice Islam if they have changed/modified clear instructions of Quran and Mohammad hence proving themselves that Islam is a fake/false and outdated religion that needs change/modification and hence cannot be divine as they claim.
As a matter of fact, present day muslims with present day knowledge of Earth being round and going around Sun and not the other way around as described in Quran, do not believe what Mohammad and his companions/followers believed that Earth is flat and Sun rises from a pond in East and sets in a pond in West and that, in my opinion, makes them all 'Kafirs'.
Now that I have concluded present day muslims including myself as 'Kafirs', there is no reason for me to continue practice Islam and even believe in it because my present day knowledge/belief of the universe can never be the same as the sixth century's knowledge and beliefs of Mohammad and his companions/followers and therefore, for me and all others 'Allah' becomes the God the Devil.
Therefore, I replaced 'Allah' with the Savior the Christ the Compassionate the Merciful the Lord and the Judge of the Day of the Judgement for my prayer because you can be in any century or on any planet in the universe you can pray ' Heavenly Father, Holy is thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven ' and it does not even matter if you believe heaven to be simply an imagination or an imaginary place.
