Millions Pele was my name. I'm a lawyer, a historian and also a theologian.
You give a very excellent exposition of the Quran and Islam.
But Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all Abrahamic faiths.
A Jew could have said the same thing, or this almost the same things, if you said by quoting the Quran, sorry, it's called accordingly, the Torah and the Talmud, accretion could have said, almost everything you said, by quoting both the Old Testament and the New Testament.
I do not know whether we should be trying to say one religion is superior or more truthful than another. And you do go down that line. What does that lead to? That's what led to the crusades, etc. thing you mentioned about Justice and Peace Corps, the Christian Bible mentions more than more verses about justice and peace than they are about the Holy Spirit. And of course, Christians were pacifists until 313. When So,
what is the difference between what you are saying, and Judaism and Christianity? And what would that lead to? But after a good question, and I do agree with him, that if you read the books of Judaism, the books of Christianity, you will find verses of peace. Never in my lecture ever did I say that any religion is against peace, or any religion is in favor of terrorism. I always said, All religions are against terrorism. What I made one statement, my speech that the verse of the Quran Chapter five, verse number 32, this was, which is so emphatic, I do not find a similar verse in any of the Scripture because I'm a student of comparative religion, saying that if you kill one innocent
human being, it is as though you have killed the whole of humanity. And if you save one, innocent human being, it is as though you have saved the whole of humanity. It was only one verse so that generally, I do agree that most of the religions almost all they speak about peace. That's the reason Jesus Christ peace be upon him. If you read the Gospel of Luke, chapter number 24, was 36. When he goes to the upper room, he says, when he wishes, apostles, shalom welcome, which means theme, peace be upon you in Hebrew. So the greetings of Jesus Christ peace be upon him to when he met the people was Salam Alaikum, which meant same in Arabic Assalamualaikum May peace be on you,
regarding you think that one diligence superior to the other Legion, I believe Almighty God sent only one religion, he has not seen different religions. what the Quran says he has made human beings into different tribes, different colors, different languages, so that they may recognize each other not they may despise each other, the only religion that God has sent to all his messengers, whether it be Moses, whether it be Jesus peace be upon him, Moses, peace be upon him, Muhammad peace bill, but it was to submit the will to Almighty God, I believe all these messengers, right from Adam, Noah, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, peace be upon them all. All of them bought the same message that
believe in one God and worship Him alone, and only him and submit your will to that Almighty God. Hope that answers the question.
