    When studying and you come over a verse or verses you can not understand. You turn to Allah for advice, you pray for guidance.
    Or as many do. They turn to their fellow believers and ask questions to understand the verses in question

    Allah might not give you a clear answer at that moment, but put forth the answer into your life, you experience the answer so you should pay attention in your daily life.

    When you ask your fellow believers, they will give you the answer the way they them self understand it, they will not give the answer the way Allah do :)

    What way would you prefere your answer given to you?

    Sounds like a belief motivated by self-interest to fit what you want to believe.

    When I come to something I don't understand, I just leave it at that. I'm content not understanding ... for now. I trust that some time in the future that knowledge will arise from within. Why look outside for answers?

    But now that you've switched from an inner faith to an outer faith, I suppose the question makes more sense to you.

    I can assure you that it is not :) my conversion to islam is real, and i have found the teaching to be true.
    My person is not important in this.

    Are you suggesting that each individual Muslim can come to Allah based on their own interpretation?

    Your OP would indicate differently.

    Of course, your conversion is real to you as it is from the many diverse and often conflicting different religions. I do not question your personal sincerity, but the reality nature of Islam and the relationship with those who believe differently. A personal testimony is only meaningful to the person making the testimony, and justification of a religious belief needs to go beyond this.

    I welcome those who believe differently to discussion when they wish. I have nothing against other religions.
    I speak only from my own view of course, other muslims may have a different view.

    The nature and relationships of the religion itself is what is the most important issue and not 'my own view,' which conflicts with 'My person is not important in this.'

    You left questions unanswered in your previous thread.

    I am not sure i understand you.
    The quran holds the truth since it is the word of Allah, as a human being i am not important in the big picture. But i have my understanding of the teaching, even my understanding is limited right now so my vision is not clear.
    The word i used "my view" was a wrong word to use, my understanding would be better.
    But as a muslim, i am still a human being who thinking, meaning i am a person, but in this OP the understanding and person who is Amanaki is not important.
    The question in the end of the OP was ment to be the important to see in the OP

    you.....didn't get it

    the body produces a unique soul on every occasion

    God and heaven will be interested when your dust dries out and fails

    WHAT?......if you prefer
    will stand from the dust

    but WHO.....is more accurate

    you are the focus of the OP.
    You are inquiring about how to get to truth.
    the OP is all about you.
    So are you saying that the truth is unimportant to you?
    Then why the OP to begin with?

    There is nothing wrong with wanting to know how to get truth.
    There is nothing wrong with looking for truth.
    IMO it should be encouraged.

    Truth is important to realize. The prosess to understand the teaching is important, to all who follow a religion, not only to me

    Then stop ignoring it.

    admittance is the first step.
    You do understand your admittance in the above quoted, right?
