    @sovietchild, I would prefer that you answer my question: If you're this willing to disrespect and vandalize other beliefs and religions, why should others bother themselves with preserving your beliefs?

    Hinduism isn't a commandment-based religion. It is a mystical religion that accepts that there are many ways to experience God.
    Thank you.

    Human hands wrote the quran and built mosques. What is wrong with burning qurans and smashing mosques?

    But why should be one superstitious.
    I am not saying that I will destroy any idols. Right? Please
    I am giving reasons and arguments that the hands who make them should not resort doing that. It is superstitious and accrues no benefit whatsoever to one from one. Please
    Regards

    Superstition to you is faith to another.

    To you. Just because you see no use doesn't mean it's not there. I ask you as well: what is the point of worship?

    Dodging the question doesn't answer it.

    All Hadith or Serah narrations should be understood from the Quran. First find a verse that pertains to it.
    The Hadith and Serah books were compiled 250/300 years after Muhammad. Only Quran existed in the times of Muhammad, that is the only source of Muhammad and his times.
    I follow Muhammad, not the compilers of Hadith or Serah books.
    First find a verse that pertains to it, and the answer will be in its context verses. Please
    Regards

    P.S. One may like to read post #147 it may have a clue to it.

    I'm sorry to trouble you but I prefer If you can give me a straight forward answer. Do or not recognize that prophet Muhammad destroyed idols? If you do not then what happened to all the idols?

    Can you make your question more simpler for me to understand it?

    Yoga brings you into your self, where as worship takes you away from your self, so called heaven in found within no without.

    No. Refusal to answer such a simple question in such a fashion is either cowardice, consent of violence, or both.

    Aye, you think I'm being funny, but when Islam comes knocking for sympathy and support, don't expect me to give any. You've given a very poor show here.

    Seriously, how am I being disrespectful towards other religions? By chatting about tossing a cross in the trash?

    Remember that question next time someone burns a quran, or destroys a mosque, or draws Muhammed in a disrespectful fashion.

    The Meccans banked on the idols while they attacked Medina aggressively, they prayed to their idols for help. Muhammad always gave them reasonable arguments for believing in One-God who is the real helper against the worship of the idols. They refused to listen the arguments and continued their aggression. With the most minimum loss of human beings and without any destruction of the properties Muhammad while defending himself for co-existence, did win before their own eyes .
    Now, they realized that they were wrong, so the Meccans who previously worshiped the idols, themselves broke them, they wanted the idols no more. They were to worship One-God, henceforth, whole-heartedly.
    Right?Please
    Regards
