"The God of the Qur'an is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.

All religions cover all aspects of life because people ask prophets, gurus and priests about every aspect of life and they have to give answers.
Ok, here's a question. What's the purpose of life? I've yet to read an answer I that makes any sense.
In Islam its different because scholars and imams cannot give answers without evidences and clues from the Quran and/or hadiths of Mohammed, its not like an imam can come up with his own answer, he has to do it depending on a specific method and criteria.

the purpose of life can be found in Quran and in some hadiths;
51:56 "And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.
51 :57 "I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed Me.Indeed, it is Allah who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength "

67:2 "[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed - and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving "

we have to understand the meaning of worshiping god, worshiping god isnt only about praying, when you worship god the creator you know that "If the whole of mankind gathered to do some thing to help us, they could not help in anything which Allah had not already written for us. And if the whole of mankind gathered together to harm us, then they would not be able to harm with anything which Allah had not already written for us." Hadith

when you worship the creator you know that he is all hearing and all seeing thus you'll live your life according to his rules in order to survive in this life and the afterlife
"There is nothing like him, and he is the hearer and seer of all."

Allah is merciful because he created the mankind with a great sense to know the difference between right and wrong.

91:7-10
And [by] the soul and He who proportioned it
And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness
He has succeeded who purifies it
And he has failed who instills it [with corruption].

So basically Allah created mankind to worship him Although he doesn't need our worshiping , he even made it so easy for humans to believe because they already have the sense of knowing right from wrong, besides worshiping makes your current life easier and better in all aspects, it even makes the whole world better and also guarantee your survival in the after life.

2:30 "And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority." They said, "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?" Allah said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know."

If I believe in God and I am wrong then I will never know it and neither will you. If you do not believe in God and you are wrong then you will suffer eternally by being separated from God. As Jesus concluded his prayers in the garden by saying "your will be done", God will say to unbelievers in the end, "your will be done". Islam is part of a Satanic deception. It is inherently evil. When Christianity has been misapplied it has been evil as well but only when wrongly understood and applied. Islam in its very foundation has been evil.

You just discussed people's actions when you said that Islam set in forth the abolishment of slavery and when you said that Islam abolished slavery before Christianity. Both statements were lies.
The Quran allow and encouraged slavery.

Even if we have Usman’s Koran, how do we verify that Usman’s Koran is authentic? Islamic politics became dirty as soon as Mohammad took his last breath. How sincere Usman was in his endeavour remains in doubt. No hard evidence for the existence of the Koran in any form before the last decade of the 7th CE. There is no cogent ground for accepting Islamic traditions. The Koran is strikingly lacking in overall structure, frequently obscure and inconsequential in both language.

No corroborative evidence to substantiate the claim that the Koran existed in its present form during the 7th century. The orthodox position concerning the collection & codification of the Koran is motivated by dogmatic factors and cannot be supported by historical evidence. Truth does not demand belief. Truth has merits on its own.

Dirty Islamic Politics:

As soon as Mohammad took his last breath, Islamic politics got dirty. Umar and Abu Bakr in one camp, the Ansars in the other, and then there was the prophets household. Each one of these groups were jostling for power. Islamic tradition states that when Ali Ibn Abi Taleb refused to swear allegiance to Abu Bakr, Umar came to his house threatening to cut his head off. Another tradition states that he broke open the door injuring Fatima (prophet's daughter) resulting in her miscarriage.

Saad Ibn Ubadah an ailing leader of the Ansars refused to give oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr and so did Ali ibn Abi Talib. Some years later, the prophets favourite wife Aisha & Ali fought one another in a bloody battle. Pre-Islamic mode of authority surfaced immediately after Mohammad’s death when some of his followers invoked an erstwhile tribal procedure for the selection of a chief. Convening of the tribal council and the selection of Abu Bakr was the re-emergence of pre-Islamic polity.

Shia theory of succession is even narrower and more restricted than that of the Sunni. The Shia also believe that only a person of Arab descent can claim leadership of the Muslim community. In their doctrine, the Arab cannot be any Arab but must prove to be a direct descendant of the Prophet’s family from his daughter Fatima. Is it any surprise the Supreme Leaders of Iran have all been men claiming to have Arab ancestry, not Persian?

Hahaha Assad of Syria Al Shaytan Al Akbar !!!, unfortunately the situation in Syria is really Fu!!ed up, we no longer can tell who is right and who is wrong, Bashar Al Assad is a Secular, he has nothing to do with Islam while the other party the Syrian opposition or what is called "the free army" is divided into tens of sects and they all claim to be good Muslims although they obviously broke almost every rule in Islam.

we only have theories about what is happening in there, its a big fuc!!ing show, what do you think about the situation there ?!

Mahmoud what do you know about the closest and best companions of Mohammed ?!!! read their biographies from a trusted source , if you really believe what you wrote up there then you are a shiat not a Sunni, its whether you were lying to me when you said that you left Islam or you are a shiat in the first place ..!!
Be honest to me and stop practicing false Taqqiya, Taqqiya is hypocrisy , your imams tricked you, you will not get rewarded if you cursed Abu Bakr, Umar and Aisha.

I think you were trying to prove that Umar and Usman changed the Quran to convince us that there is &#1616;A Surah Called Al Wilaya which proves that Ali was supposed to be the Kaliph and the Imam , we as Sunnis love Ali more than ourselves, don't waste your time thinking about what happened between Ali and Mouawya.

Besides do you actually believe that the closest companions of Mohammed would hurt Fatima ???...!!! or wouldn't follow Islam accurately, Those Companions and Caliphs succeeded to spread Islam's message more than you can imagine, if you questioned the ethics of closest friends of Mohammed then you question Mohammed's intelligence to choose friends.

If you actually believe that the Quran was not kept the same then you clearly Lost your Islam and would be considered as an apostate, Because allah said

15:9 "Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian."

if you don't believe this single verse then you are directly saying that Allah is a liar or that he was not capable to guard Quran and keep it safe from fabrications and manipulations.

the verses we already discussed regarding Christians and previous nations is not a contradiction but you don't know the accurate criteria to extract rules and laws from Quranic verses, people study the science of Tafsir Al Quran for years so you cannot just simply come and say this is a contradiction and this is not.

Allah also clearly says that the Quran never contradicts

41:42 "Falsehood cannot approach it from before it or from behind it; [it is] a revelation from a [Lord who is] Wise and Praiseworthy. "

I think you have been reading in some of untrusted websites who knows nothing about the philosophy of The Quran and nearly nothing about Islamic teachings and rules, and of course have zero knowledge in Arabic Language and the method of extracting rules from Quran (Tafsir), An educated person will instantly know that the writers of such articles are hypocrites and/or uneducated.
