Allah’s destitute of compassion

[008:007] Behold! God promised you one of the two (enemy) parties, that it should be yours: Ye wished that the one unarmed should be yours, but God willed to justify the Truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the Unbelievers;-

[008:008] That He might justify Truth and prove Falsehood false, distasteful though it be to those in guilt.

[008:009] Remember ye implored the assistance of your Lord, and He answered you: "I will assist you with a thousand of the angels, ranks on ranks."

[008:010] God made it but a message of hope, and an assurance to your hearts: (in any case) there is no help except from God: and God is Exalted in Power, Wise.
[008:011] Remember He covered you with a sort of drowsiness, to give you calm as from Himself, and he caused rain to descend on you from heaven, to clean you therewith, to remove from you the stain of Satan, to strengthen your hearts, and to plant your feet firmly therewith.
[008:012] Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."
The accuser has quoted these verses but out of context and with false translations. Context has been put up above. The context clearly says that the fear shall be put into the hearts of the infidels in that situation. The writer puts himself in the position of those infidels whereas he should put himself in a position that has nothing to do with that particular fight. He neither lives in Arabia, nor is an enemy combatant!

Open your mind and appreciate the beauty!

In this very topic, the accuser has pointed out a verse in which Allah addresses the faithful and the accuser calls it as being biased. The accuser says that God is impartial and should refer to everyone and not do favoritism towards the Muslims. This is a false understanding of the writer because the Quran refers to each group of people separately. It also refers to humans as one group calling them sons of Adam. Having a problem in everything is the real problem here.

The writer has presented a verse in which the Muslims are ordered to fight against the disbelievers until the pagan Arabs are destroyed. Somehow, the accuser has changed the message and interpretation of this verse to mean that the Muslims should kill innocent people and be thugs. The fight here mentioned in the verses is a fight in particular and one cannot decide as to who is evil and who is not without knowing about the background of the fight between the Muslims and the pagan Arabs. Commenting without knowledge is just hypocrisy.

The main problem of the writer with the Quran is on the treatment of non-Muslims and to justify his hate for the Muslims, he attribute verses that were for the pagan Arabs to himself and his own religion. He again criticized the belief that Allah helps the Muslims in wars which has been answered where he first made this allegation. The writer has no problem with the people being disobedient to God and being punished for that. His understanding of God is very flawed.

There is a saying of Prophet Muhammad (saw) that a Muslim must help another Muslim whether he is right or wrong. The companions asked as to why or how they should help the Muslim if he is wrong. The Prophet replied that by correcting him. Isn’t that beautiful? The writer must change his mental position and then see the true picture presented by the Quran.
