Greetings, dear HughBe
Every time I write to polemicists like Shamma and others, you are always in my mind and I feel sad, when I have to hammer such freaks and I know you do understand why I do that.
Thanks for that understanding and now to your good questions.
We believe that Muhammad was the Prophet of God. And every Muslim must believe that and does believe.
We do not need the Prophet to send us into the Paradise and we do not believe that he is an intercessor or has any power to do so.
We only need to believe in Allah, the LORD Almighty to get into Paradise. That authority lies with Allah, not Muhammad.
Thanks for asking good questions.
Once again, my sincere apologies to you for what I do. I am glad you have always understood me.
Salaams and regards, my friend
Your pants are on fire.
Requirements to be a Muslim.
Sins are only forgiven by belief in Muhammad.
