And they swore by Allah their strongest oath that if a warner came to them, they would be more guided than any of the previous nations. But when a warner came to them , it did not increase them except in aversion
The Quran says warners were sent to all nations yet there's not a hint they ever existed.
An all knowing God wouldn't send failures, he would choose people who could and with his help, would succeed. For them to fail so totally proves your God is either incompetent or he doesn't exist.

And forget Moses, his is a tribal God and he never talks about an afterlife.

As for Christianity, if your God had told Jesus to write down his message it would never have existed, but he didn't.

So all we are left with is the word of one of the many competing self proclaimed prophets. We're not supposed to believe the others so I see no reason to beleive him either.

And those who disbelieve say,"Do not listen to this Qur'an and speak noisily during the recitation of it that perhaps you will overcome."

But We will surely cause those who disbelieve to taste a severe punishment, and We will recompense them for the worst of what they had been doing.
That is the recompense of the enemies of Allah - the Fire. For them, therein is the home of eternity, as recompense for what they, of Our verses were rejecting.

Or it's just the word of one man who said believe me or you will burn forever!

Why should we believe him but not all those other self proclaimed prohets?

So your prophet said that your God said "I will surely overcome, I and My messengers." and we are supposed to believe this because?

First of all, it is important to note that "Allah" is the same word that Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews use for God. If you pick up an Arabic Bible, you will see the word "Allah" being used where "God" is used in English. This is because "Allah" is the only word in the Arabic language equivalent to the English word "God" with a capital "G". Additionally, the word "Allah" cannot be made plural or given gender (i.e. masculine or feminine), which goes hand-in-hand with the Islamic concept of God. Because of this, and also because the Qur'an, which is the holy scripture of Muslims, was revealed in the Arabic language, some Muslims use the word "Allah" for "God", even when they are speaking other languages. This is not unique to the word "Allah", since many Muslims tend to use Arabic words when discussing Islamic issues, regardless of the language that they speak. This is because the universal teachings of Islam - even though they have been translated in every major language - have been preserved in the Arabic language.



It is interesting to note that the Aramaic word "El", which is the word for God in the language that Jesus spoke, is certainly more similar in sound to the word "Allah" than the English word "God". This also holds true for the various Hebrew words for God, which are "El" and "Elah", and the plural form "Elohim". The reason for these similarities is that Aramaic, Hebrew and Arabic are all Semitic languages with common origins. It should also be noted that in translating the Bible into English, the Hebrew word "El" is translated variously as "God", "God" and "angel"! This imprecise language allows different translators, based on their preconceived notions, to translate the word to fit their own views. The Arabic word "Allah" presents no such difficulty or ambiguity, since it is only used for Almighty God alone. Additionally, in English, the only difference between "God", meaning a false God, and "God", meaning the One True God, is the capital "G". In the Arabic alphabet, since it does not have capital letters, the word for God (i.e. Allah) is formed by adding the equivalent to the English word "the" (Al-) to the Arabic word for "God/God" (ilah). So the Arabic word "Allah" literally it means "The God" - the "Al-" in Arabic basically serving the same function as the capital "G" in English. Due to the above mentioned facts, a more accurate translation of the word "Allah" into English might be "The One -and-Only God" or "The One True God".

Yeah ... now the problem is for some, who IS this one and only true God? El? Elohim? Allah? Who is he? Since I believe there IS ONLY ONE true God, and he is distinctive, it would be good to ask God for direction. Ask HIM to reveal himself to you. I believe He will do so if you are sincere and really want to know.

Humans are prone to influence. God gave Adam and Eve certain commandments. He did not LEAVE them on their own, to do as they wished without guidance, which He knew would lead to disaster (which it did when they demonstrated they did not want to LISTEN to God's commandments).
