My parents brought me up as a shia muslim. I turned my back on Islam around 10 years ago. Both my parents died as muslims and buried the Islamic way.<quoted text>
You said you do not know Arabic, and all these books are in Arabic?
So you have not read these books, but their English Translations.
And who did the translations? What tricks they played in those Translations?
When you want to lay any allegation, you should have proofs. You are wrong because your "CONCLUSIONS" are exactly opposite to what these Islamic scholars reached.
None of them "Turned their backs on Islam" as you did by reading their books!!
So the "kink" is in you and not them and the main source is that your foundation was not strong.
That is why I want to know about your childhood and how your parents brought you up?
Did they also turned their back on Islam and became Non Muslims or you "did that honor and did your parents and family this honor"?
Open up and tell me more about your early life, may be we can straighten up this kink. If Allah Wills of course.
I am not interested in this childish kink thing, maybe I have a kink, allah knows best. I promise you, that I will revert to Islam as soon as you can provide irrefutable evidence that Islam comes to us from a higher power.
This translation issue that you have now brought up, is a lame excuse and does need to be discussed any furhter. Most scholars who have written bios about Mohammad were all very well versed in Arabic.
Maulana Sahib, have you not relaize that you have not answered even one of my questions?
