Who is it that is speaking?
To whom you wanted to speak to?
Well, NOT the one who plays games and refuses to answer reasonable questions because that one's ego is only interested in proclaiming authority/knowledge of truth that cannot be proven and makes no sense.
Then who?

Re: God and COVID-19

Why is that necessary for you to answer questions? Is your point that NOTHING CAN BE PROVEN... including all that you say? Hi sister Lacewing. How are you? I thought you did not want to exchange with me anymore! What made you change your mind? Who is it that is speaking? To whom you wanted to speak...

Me. My name is Sculptor. You made a claim that your name is Sculptor who is the one who wrote these posts asking for answers to some questions? Now, prove that it is Sculptor who wrote these posts asking these questions. Why is that necessary for you to answer questions? Is your point that NOTHING ...

Re: God and COVID-19

You made some massive claims, such as the Koran was dictated to people from god. Where is YOUR proof? Very good questions were put to me. Who is asking those questions? Are you going to answer them? Why did Allah create COVID-19? Why has the Harj been banned? Why cannot Allah protect the faithful f...

Re: God and COVID-19

Let me tell you a story about assumptions and beliefs. I was positioned in front of some people with relative power of me. I was being accused of doing some thing to some one. I was saying that it did not happen. They asked me, "What if we brought this person here?" I clarified by asking them, "Why...

Re: God and COVID-19

The people of the other religions with whom I interacted with did not say they were pretty sure of anything on the matter, and others yet are not even sure about anything whatsoever. It was only you whom I know were pretty sure on this subject. So I thought it made sense that I should ask you as yo...

Re: God and COVID-19

Remember, whose hands wrote the quran, and through whose interpretation it was written. I think it is important that I mention that the Holy Quran is an oral tradition. What this means is that the Holy Quran is a revelation from Allah, the Almighty given orally (i.e through speech) to Prophet Muham...

Re: God and COVID-19

So, the True Self, the real One in 'you', feels good when you are doing what is right and good for every one. As doing right and good for every one not just pleases 'you', but also pleases every one, which in turn pleases the one and only One, correct? This is how I put it: Everything that Allah, t...

Re: God and COVID-19

In other words are you doing, for what feels good and right for 'you', or, because you are just 'trying to' please "others"? This is a very good question. I do, indeed, try my best to please our Creator, the Almighty. And I feel good in doing that indeed. For example, Allah says in the Holy Quran: ...

Re: God and COVID-19

What did I ever supposedly "insist" and when did I ever supposedly "insist" any thing. Please, don't be offended by my choice of words. I do try my best to be careful but here I was seemingly not successful in that. I had observed that twice you raised an objection that I didn't ask for you and oth...

Re: God and COVID-19

If that be so, then examples of shameful deaths in my judgement are: the death of Pharaoh, the death of Nimrod, and the future death of Satan, the cursed, among others. And I ask Allah, the Almighty to preserve me, the Muslims and my loved ones from such deaths. You can ask from any one you like fo...

Re: God and COVID-19

If 'islam' means peace , and, 'muslim' means follower of islam/peace , (which I say they do) then EVERY one is born a 'muslim', and naturally embraces/wants peace. That is correct indeed. In Islam, the belief is that every child is born as a Muslim. When someone embraces Islam, we say that he/she i...

Re: God and COVID-19

How exactly does one 'embrace' islam? What do i have to do exactly to 'embrace'? If you have a wish to embrace Islam, then this is really a great blessing that God, the Almighty is giving you. You should be made aware that no one guides to Islam except Allah, the Almighty. Allah, the Almighty says ...

Re: God and COVID-19

Thank you for your input sister Lacewing! Hi Averroes. The only thing in your response that rings true to me is the phrase "sister Lacewing". That is true. :D The rest is something you have chosen to believe, and part of your belief is that it applies to me. For me, it does not. So I guess there's ...
