But they (the Jews) were deceptive, and Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers
Are they then secure from Allah's deception (makra Allahi)? None deemeth himself secure from Allah's deception (makra Allahi) save folk that perish
Allah leads astray many and guides many to the right way by the same thing.
Everyone receives what he sends forward, either these are good deeds or bad.
And if we had willed, we could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me will come into effect (that) "I will surely fill Hell with jinn and people all together."
Are Muslims tricked by their own religion?
Quote:Are Muslims tricked by their own religion?
No more so than members of any other faith community.
Monolithic thinking, people like the OP need a bogieman.
It used to be the Commies, now it’s Islam, they can pin all the horrors of the World on it while pretending to be such good people.
I feel sorry for the American women denied access to abortion services and family planning. It’s like the Dark Ages over there.
This is not a "casting stones" as much as it is, "the Quran literally seems to be leading followers down a primrose path."
(Light bursts from the area, almost hitting the Enterprise-A in space above)
"God": Brave souls, welcome.
"Bones" McCoy: Is this the voice of God?
"God": One voice, many faces.
(The energy being gradually shifts his face until he settles)
"God": Does this better suit your expectations?
Sybok: (I couldn't catch what he said, probably a Vulcan word)
"God": It is I. The journey you undertook to reach me could not have been an easy one.
Sybok: It was not. The Barrier stood between us, but we breached it.
(Question. If this was God, why is he imprisoned behind a barrier? Wouldn't that be more in line with a sealed demon?)
"God": Magnificent. You are the first to find me.
Sybok: We sought only your infinite wisdom.
"God": And how did you breach the Barrier?
Sybok: With a starship.
"God": This starship, could it carry my wisdom beyond the Barrier?
Sybok: It could. Yes.
"God": Then I shall make use of this starship.
Sybok: It will be your chariot!
(Pans to Kirk)
Kirk: Excuse me...
"God": It will carry my power to every corner of creation.
Kirk: Excuse me, I'd just like to ask a question.
What does God need with a starship?
"God": Bring the ship closer.
Kirk: I said, what does God need with a starship?
Bones: Jim what are you doing?
Kirk: I'm asking a question.
"God": Who is this creature?
Kirk: Who am I? Don't you know? Aren't you God?
Sybok: He has his doubts.
"God": You doubt me?
Kirk: I seek proof.
Bones: Jim, you don't ask the Almighty for his ID.
"God": Then here is the proof you seek.
(Eye-beam blasts him)
Kirk: Why is God angry?
Sybok: Why? Why have you done this to my friend?
"God": He doubts me.
Spock: You have not answered his question. What does God need with a starship?
(Blasts Spock as well)
"God": Do you doubt me?
Bones: I doubt any God who inflicts pain for his own pleasure.
Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”
I guess you haven't read the Old Testament. Lots of smiting there.
If you believe in the right god in the correct way you’re a sheep and can do whatever the **** you like to goats, (and a lot of other sheep for that matter.)
