No It's 72 virgins and that's paradise don't take it lightly. Did you also know that the men also get mansions made of pearl and they have slaves to beckon to 24/7.

I still don't know what they have for women though considering the men are promised freshly created beautiful women with big eyes and big breasts. I guess paradise wasn't made for the women on earth.

The irony of life and some people will still defend this lunacy.

Well it takes great courage and boldness to start thinking outside the religion daddy and mommy passed to us.
The first thing we need to know is that these things were passed onto them as well so it has become like their heritage. So it's only humility that makes one to ask "why didn't they ask further about these things like i am doing now?"
We shouldn't forget that there's life anxieties taking their time, energy, resources and of course their thinking ability. So most of them only have few time to spend meditating on what they were told about God! smiley

It does make sense to the adherents. They believe everything about it regardless of what people(nonmuslims) say or perceived about it (right or wrong). That's why they can blow up themselves (martyrdom) to claim rewards (virgins) in jannah. Qn 56:34-38 and (Sunan Ibn Majah, Book 39)

Aside the violent part of the religion, there are up to 70% positive aspect of it which is why nonmuslims are easily swayed by a good sugarcoated ustaz to get them reverted (muslims ways of conversion).

Islam is good for muslims while deeply hated by nonmuslims (which I am one of 'em)

Please calm down Sir! smiley
I happens to be a Muslim too before my conversion to Jehovah's Witnesses so i know the tenets in Islam.
Your child can ask you a question, and you can also ask your cleric. What is forbidden is rhetorical questions in the public which is not meant to serve as a means to learn but to ridicule Islam publicly!

What i am saying is asking yourself questions as to why you believe in your parents religion! smiley

@bold That would still be term as rhetorical question. So far the question is religion-centric.

Now, the qn verse up there still maintains it meaning "do not ask questions". You or tafir calls it rhetorical question but we call it "question" just like the qn itself calls it. You asked yourself the same questions the verse implores you not to ask and led you to abandoned Islam for JW. That's the reason the qn gives in verse 102( not to leave religion). There were no rhetorical questions in what made the people in verse 102 to leave islam(religion) other than coming in contact with the truth found in the answers supplied to the questions being asked. No one leaves a religion like that if there were no concrete reasons. The same applied to your situation.

the fact that a religion was passed on, is more reason why people really need to ask certain questions like, if i was born in rome would i be a muslim, or if i was born in afgahnistan would i be a christain?
the way muslim discriminate against people is apalling, like xalling people infidels and the rest, you could see that in pantamis audio..


there is so much hatred in islam.
as a christain if you become a muslim in the south, the perscution you do face cannot be compared to what you would face if there is a switch, you could be killed, excommunicated from your village.
i know people that cant go back to their villages in the core north ..why?
they became christains.

The 72 virgins, the beautiful home and promises alike are for the faithful who do good deeds and enjoined peace, truthfulness, patience and perseverance amongst humanity. The promises were not for intolerant unrepentant killers in the name of Jihad or whatever reason it maybe as we see all around us...

But if I may ask,
Are there no promises in the "Holy Bible" for the Christian believers?

There are promises for Christian believers in the Bible, no matter what their gender is. The "holy" Quran, however, have goodies only for the males in paradise. The fact that there are female Muslims shows humans are the most complicated of creatures.

To me there is nothing bad in religion it self Infact the oldest religions ain't Islam or Christianity I Belive religion help to shape morals , but when one begin to impose, hurt fellow humans who pose no threat to you, disrupt the law of the land, that when it becomes a problem.
in the early 1800s majority of hausa where not Muslims but traditional worshipers with their own native religion. Before the fulani invaded and made majority hausa under there control using Islam.
if usman dan fodio didnt go jihad berserk. Hausa may just be like the yorubas today.
We should learn to live in peace Abeg,2 religions from the far Middle East should not come and be disturbing our existences in this 21st century.
Ever since China support atheism in a way, removing religion which I am not in support of.
China has progress beyond imagination.
Religion is good but can be a disease.

Islam truly does not make any sense , it is purely a cult.

For example , why worshiping a god that does not consider your good or bad deeds before determining to cast anyone to hell?

Hadith
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا وَكِيعٌ، عَنْ طَلْحَةَ بْنِ يَحْيَى، عَنْ عَمَّتِهِ، عَائِشَةَ بِنْتِ طَلْحَةَ عَنْ عَائِشَةَ أُمِّ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ، قَالَتْ دُعِيَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم إِلَى جَنَازَةِ صَبِيٍّ مِنَ الأَنْصَارِ فَقُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ طُوبَى لِهَذَا عُصْفُورٌ مِنْ عَصَافِيرِ الْجَنَّةِ لَمْ يَعْمَلِ السُّوءَ وَلَمْ يُدْرِكْهُ قَالَ ‏
‏ أَوَغَيْرَ ذَلِكَ يَا عَائِشَةُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ لِلْجَنَّةِ أَهْلاً خَلَقَهُمْ لَهَا وَهُمْ فِي أَصْلاَبِ آبَائِهِمْ وَخَلَقَ لِلنَّارِ أَهْلاً خَلَقَهُمْ لَهَا وَهُمْ فِي أَصْلاَبِ آبَائِهِمْ ‏"

A'isha, the mother of the believers, said that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) was called to lead the funeral prayer of a child of the Ansar. I said:

Allah's Messenger, there is happiness for this child who is a bird from the birds of Paradise for it committed no sin nor has he reached the age when one can commit sin. He said: 'A'isha, per adventure, it may be otherwise, because God created for Paradise those who are fit for it while they were yet in their father's loins and created for Hell those who are to go to Hell. He created them for Hell while they were yet in their father's loins.

I think that was an assumption (human thought)
Re: .. by enilove(m): 9:01am On Oct 09, 2021
sotomayor:

An assumption from their prophet Muhammad ?

You can call it whatever you wish but the truth is , it remains part and parcel of their faith.

Hadith
Abdullah (b. Mas'ud) reported that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) who is the most truthful (of the human beings) and his being truthful (is a fact) said:

Verily your creation is on this wise. The constituents of one of you are collected for forty days in his mother's womb in the form of blood, after which it becomes a clot of blood in another period of forty days. Then it becomes a lump of flesh and forty days later Allah sends His angel to it with instructions concerning four things, so the angel writes down his livelihood, his death, his deeds, his fortune and misfortune. By Him, besides Whom there is no god, that one amongst you acts like the people deserving Paradise until between him and Paradise there remains but the distance of a cubit, when suddenly the writing of destiny overcomes him and he begins to act like the denizens of Hell and thus enters Hell, and another one acts in the way of the denizens of Hell, until there remains between him and Hell a distance of a cubit that the writing of destiny overcomes him and then he begins to act like the people of Paradise and enters Paradise.

Muslims don't call the sayings of their prophet an ''assumption'' but a fact from Allah.
Re: .. by LordReed(m): 10:29am On Oct 09, 2021
I find no reason to believe in any religion. Islam is a reiteration of the Jewish religion which is decidedly quite violent, it presents more reason not to believe.

Neighbour, I agree with you 100% on this one. Yet, if a prophet told them about sex orgy and wine in thereafter, these things are forbidden here on earth.
Does it make sense?

Innocent children on errands as terrorists are said to be deceived by these infallible assurances from the prophet. Some of them on a mission to suicide bombing wrap their manhood in towel, believing that when they open their eyes on the other side, the girls are waiting for them for sex romp.

If those then were not thinking why are people now.
As you rightly posited, religion does not give way to questioning. Even now.

As the OP asked, I prefer the cock and bull story of an IFA priest or hinduism than would not harm anyone to a holy murderer of a prophet.
Imaging a world without Islam since it's beginning.

I disagree that Islam is a more violent religion compared with Judaism and Christianity. As a matter of fact, the God of the old testament and that portrayed in the Quran have similar modus operandi ( a no nonsense,no bullshiting, short tempered, vindictive, jealous and spur of the moment kinda God who punishes transgressions of his people as soon as they are committed), except that the former is pro Israel and the latter pro Arabia.

The god of Christianity, on the other hand is a more temperate, slow to anger and action kinda deity. I find it hard wrapping my head around how christians consider this God to be the exact same one in the old testament! They say the god is unchangeable but its crystal that the god of the new testament, if he's same as that of the old, clearly changed. It's like he repented and became "born again"!
