Its nobody's fault, I'm not blaming anyone. Its just like singing a song in language you dont understand. I can sing a Russian song fluently without understanding one word of Russian. Just about any (muslim) kid in India can recite first sura of the Koran but ask them to translate it, they cant. You cannot blame them, they dont know Arabic. Go to any mosque in the sub-continent, and I can gurantee you, that 99% of the congregation know little or nothing about their faith. Ask them a question and they'll tell you to go to the imam/mullah.
I never had doubts about the Koran at age 11. I used to kiss the Koran before getting on a plane. Doubts began to emerge around 10 years ago, and now its fully blossomed - ripe and ready to strike.
Now lets get to the heart of the matter. My childhood, education, and zero knowledge of Arabic is totally irrelevant to the questions I am asking. I am asking you to prove that both Ayat al Kursi and 112 were orignally a part of the Koran and not a product of some interpolation? The only way for you to do that is come up with the orignal manuscript of the Koran. That Phd from Medina Univ may carry weight among the Wahabis. Other muslims like the Shias, Sufis, and Ismailis wont give him a second look.
Looking forward to your response. Do youself a favour. Go buy some halal sausages, mix it with scrambled eggs, and add some pickles to it - delicious. That is what I had for b'fast this morning.
Dear Mahmood Sahib
Let us forget about MY Problem let us discuss about YOUR problem.
Why are you hiding info about your parents and how much religious education they gave you?
Is there any feeling of shame associated with it?
Why are you changing your stand? First you said that you started having doubts about Quran at the age 11 . Now you "extended" it to 21!!
Why did you not ask Muslim scholars of your city of your doubts? Why did you not started learning Arabic to find out the truth?
Why did you think that books written by Christian Scholars about Quran and prophet and Islam are "more authentic" than written by Muslims?
Would any Christian, Jew or Hindu accept translations done by Muslims of their own scripture more authentic than what their own scholars did?
You are not telling your full story; to me it seems that you are hiding some thing.
Open up a little more about your "doubting years"?
May be we could still straighten out your "kink"
And do not think that you will annoy me with your little 'puns'. I can see when you are cornered.
You want to get out of the whole by using these verbal juggleries.
