  1. Does the wine in heaven contain alcohol? What is the alcohol percentage? I might become interested in Islam after all.
  2. Are there bars and stuff in heaven or is it just rivers?
  3. Can someone get a 130% alcohol drink in heaven? Or do physical laws apply in the supernatural heaven too?
  4. Why does Allah keep changing his mind on whether alcohol is legal or not in the Qur'an?
  5. Does the Qur'an also forbid the marula fruit which contains alcohol in its natural form?
  6. When used in moderation, there are numerous benefits in the consumption of alcohol. Shouldn't Allah have only prohibited its abuse rather than give us an outright ban?
  7. If life is a test, shouldn't alcohol be legal in Saudi Arabia so Allah could test Saudis? Isn't banning it in any Muslim country the same as cutting the forbidden fruit tree and interfering in Allah's affairs?


  1. Why do Muslims need to resort to a variety of hoaxes and photoshopped pictures to prove Allah is real?
  2. Is Allah the god of the Old Testament?
  3. The Qur'an says Mary had a son without a consort, so why can't Allah have a son? Is he impotent?
  4. Muslims say the entire Bible is corrupted. Shi'ites say Sunni hadiths are corrupted. Baha'is say the Qur'an is insufficient. When will Allah stop confusing mankind?
  5. Why doesn't Allah arrange a few stars at night to make them read "Islam is the true religion"?
  6. Only organisms have feelings and thus desire appreciation. Why would an omnipotent being like Allah want to be praised or worshiped?
  7. How do Muslims know there's only one God? Aren't deities intelligent, so could co-exist without quarrelling?
  8. Did you know that 1 of Allah's 99 names translates as the Deceiver ? Why believe any such deity?
  9. Who created Allah? If Allah does not have to be created, why can't the universe also not have to be created?
  10. Why does almost every description of Allah also equal non-existence? (i.e. incorporeal, immaterial, ineffable, unfathomable, incomprehensible, etc.)
  11. If Allah is all-knowing is there anything we can do to surprise him? If not, why does he react so often to what we do?
  12. If Allah is almighty, can he create a rock so big that he can’t lift it?
  13. If Allah is omnipotent (able to do everything), can he fart?
  14. Comparing the Earth to the Universe is like comparing a drop of water to the Ocean. Humans live on this drop of Ocean (Universe). Why would Allah who has the power to create this universe, be so much worried about such a small thing like all humans worshiping him?
  15. If nobody has seen Allah, its sex cannot be determined. Why do we still address it as a male?
  16. If Allah is omnipresent does he exist in donkey's feces?
  17. If Allah knows everything, why did he create Iblis who one day will make him angry?
  18. Why is Allah obsessed with being obeyed?
  19. How can Allah become angry if he's perfect?
  20. Can Allah do everything? If so, can he commit suicide?
  21. Why does Allah 'test' us? Isn't he all-knowing?
  22. How do you know that Allah doesn't love atheists more and that they passed the real test of skepticism?
  23. Why would Allah have to bribe his followers by promising them loot?


  1. Why should I convert to a religion which kills apostates?
  2. Why do so many people still leave Islam even though they receive death threats for doing so?
  3. How will we know if Islam is a true religion when all the apostates get killed?
  4. Would you trust a political party which doesn't let ex-members speak out? if not, why would you trust Islam when you know what shari'ah does to apostates?
  5. If Allah wants apostates to be executed, why doesn't he do it himself? Does he need our help in fulfilling his desires?
  6. Many people who leave Islam become atheists. Why aren't there any convincing arguments for the existence of God in the Qur'an?
  7. Why is there no compulsion in religion when the punishment for apostasy is death?

Arabic language[edit]

  1. What if you are slightly dyslexic or have Attention deficit disorder and cannot learn Arabic? Should you give up on the Qur'an?
  2. Non-Arabs; why do you force your children to memorize the Qur'an (something they don't understand), instead of making them understand it first?
  3. Why did Allah not reveal the Qur'an in a language more widely spoken on earth such as English, Mandarin, Spanish, Hindi, Urdu or Russian?
  4. Classic Arabic is missing vowels and dots. Why didn't Allah reveal his final message in a language that was fully developed? Is he stupid?
  5. Why is Arabic only difficult to understand or translate when a kafir criticizes the Qur'an?
  6. Does Allah only understand Arabic? Can I pray salat in my native language Swahili?
  7. Why does the Qur'an not specify whether you can recite Qur'anic prayers in your native language? did Allah forget only a fraction of humans speaks Arabic?
  8. If the Qur'an is the last testament of God, why was it delivered only in a now dying form of Arabic - a language only a small fraction of the world, including native Arabic speakers and Muslim scholars, could speak?
  9. If I am in Heaven and am not a native Arabic speaker, how will I understand my neighbors? Will there be a universal language in Heaven?
  10. There are many Arabic dialects such as Egyptian, Gulf, Eastern Arabic, Maghrebi and dozens of others. Which one did Allah want us to use to interpret the Qur'an?

Body Parts[edit]

  1. Muslims believe that our body parts will testify our sins in the hereafter. Is that true for donated body parts as well?
  2. Brain transplants will eventually be possible. Where would the soul end up then?
  3. If person A dies and person B eats person A, the body parts of person A will become the body parts of the person B. What will happen to the body parts of person A on Judgment day?
  4. Would God really tell his followers to cut off the hands and feet at opposite ends of those who fight the Muslims?
  5. If Allah has already created the Universe, how has been spending his time for the last few thousand/million years. Shouldn't he come and visit us, his human creation, in person?
  6. Why didn't Allah create us circumcised if he wants us that way?


  1. Scholars in Muslim majority countries such as Tunisia and Turkey have banned the hijab citing the Qur'an. Some scholars say the burqa (with face-veil) is obligatory. Why does everybody interpret hijab verses differently?
  2. Why does Allah forbid silk for men? Why does he care what clothing material you have on?
  3. Why does Allah care what type of clothes you wear when going on Hajj? (namely the ihram)
  4. Why does Allah care whether your garment can reach below your ankles?
  5. What's up with those khaki skirts for men? I mean, seriously!


  1. Isn't creation of the universe a very easy task for Allah? Why should we thank Allah for something he didn't really put much effort in doing it?
  2. What did Allah create wisdom tooth for? Did he want us to suffer?
  3. If everything has been created by Allah, are Satan or the Jinn also his creations?
  4. Isn't making all women menstruate, suffer pregnancy and become stupid as a punishment for Eve's transgressions in the garden, just a little sexist? What about Adam? He ate the fruit too!
  5. Did Adam and Eve have immune systems? If so, why? If not, when did humans develop them and how long did that take?
  6. Did Adam and Eve have a navel?

Disasters in the Muslim world[edit]

  1. Why does Allah mostly target Muslim majority countries in earthquakes?
  2. While non-Muslims provide most of the aid after a natural disaster, Allah does nothing. Does he abandon his people on purpose and wish to humiliate them?
  3. Why doesn't Allah prevent Mosques from being desecrated during earthquakes in Muslim countries?
  4. Why do Muslims accept aid from non-Muslims? Didn't Allah tell you not to take kafir as “friends and protectors”?
  5. Kashmir is divided between India, Pakistan, and China . Why in the 2005 earthquake did Allah destroy Pakistan-controlled part of Kashmir rather than Hindu and Buddhist majority regions?


  1. Fatimah married Ali when she was 12 and she died when she was 18. She gave birth to at least 5 children in these 6 years. That doesn't look so cool, does it? Even a camel would die living like that.
  2. Fatimah was born 5 years after Hijra. Muhammad married Khadijah when he was 25 and she was 40. Muhammad claimed prophet hood when he was 40, therefore Khadijah would have been 60 when she gave birth to Fatimah. Why do Muslims hide this amazing miracle? Or in other words who the hell's daughter was Fatimah?


  1. If Allah orders someone to get him coffee and the guy refuses, do we all have to go back to Earth to start this crap all over again?
  2. What if I dare Allah to create someone as powerful as himself or otherwise he's be a coward, would he comply?
  3. What would Allah do if I threw a westside hand gesture up at him?
  4. Is it Halaam to act like a weirdo? (Halaam = Haraam + Halaal in one)
  5. Little children may believe in Cinderella talking to birds and mice and stuff. What makes you smarter than a child if you believe that Suleiman, as the Qur'an says, was talking to ants?
  6. The Qur'an says Allah will be carried by a few angels while sitting on his throne. Can't the guy walk by himself?
  7. We have telescopes that can see things that are millions of light years away, and we still haven’t discovered God. If the Buraq could deliver Muhammad to Allah, then it has a speed of millions of light years per hour. Why didn't Allah just send a UFO to Muhammad to fetch him?
  8. Does Allah love pigs?
  9. Would you rather eat poison (a small quantity which won't kill you) or a little bit of baked ham?
  10. Why doesn't any one of many recent suicide bombers who are now in heaven, ask Allah for a PC and make an email address or make a website there to inform us of their present situation now that they are in the heaven, and send us photos about the good scenery of Heaven and their 72 beautiful Houris (or at least tell us that they really live in Heaven)?
  11. How is Qur'an any different from Harry Potter when you have Gog and Magog, Dajjal, Mahdi, Beast from the East and other cartoon characters?
  12. If I'm taking a dump, can Allah see me?
  13. If I often get unwanted erections, is it okay if I masturbate to get limp and avoid embarrassment?

Geography/ Astronomy[edit]

  1. Where did Dhul-Qarnayn find Ya'juj and Ma'juj (Gog and Magog)? We can't locate them using our GPS.
  2. The Qur'an says the Earth is like a rug. No one has ever seen a spherical rug. Was it hard for Allah to use the word "Kurah" (Arabic for spherical) before the word "Earth" like all Arabic texts do today? Perhaps Allah did not know that the Earth is spherical.
  3. Why is it that every year Muslims on opposite sides of Earth can't agree when Ramadan starts? Did Allah use outdated astronomical calculations because He thought Earth was flat?
  4. We’ve gone to the Moon and didn't find the invisible rope. Why is that?


  1. Sunnis say 'our hadiths are true as we reject any narrator that lies even once in his lifetime'. But how can you always know his inner integrity and sincerity? Or what if he's two-faced?
  2. Hadiths have caused major issues in Islam. Some follow Sunni hadiths, some follow Shia hadiths, some follow their own separate hadiths, some follow very specific hadiths and some reject hadith altogether. Why has Allah not clarified things in the Qur'an?
  3. Today there are dozens of ways for determining the authenticity or weakness of a hadith. Why does Allah allow weak hadiths to mix with true hadiths, and why doesn't the Qur'an tell us which hadith are trustworthy and which isn't?
  4. If people cannot even agree on whether the 1969 moon landing happened, what makes you think Bukhari hadiths compiled more than a thousand years ago by someone born 200 years after Muhammad are authentic?
  5. Why does your most trusted authentic Hadith Bukhari have so many contradictions?
  6. Who gave Imam Bukhari and Muslim bin Hajjaj authority to compile hadith?
  7. Was the classification of Hadith as Sahih (authentic) and Daeef (weak) authorized by Allah or by men?
  8. The hadith contains many hadiths on grave punishments. Why have we never seen it happening in real life though?
  9. Who decided that the hadith should be limited to six collections and when was this decided?


  1. If someone has multiple personality disorder, which personality is judged?
  2. Very young children have been known to be transgender. Why does Allah not address this?

  2. Won't there be jealousy if some people can get to the 7th heaven and some can't?
  3. Will Muslims not get bored with rivers of wine, virgins, gold etc. after a quadrillion years in Heaven?
  4. What would you do if you are with your 72 virgins and your mom comes in stunned and shocked?
  5. The Qur'an says whatever you want will be available for you in Heaven. Can we ask Allah to let us be the God of the Universe for a few days instead of him?
  6. If I am in Heaven and ask for the blackest box ever and then Osama bin Laden who is another heavener asks for a blacker box, will he get it?
  7. If I am in Heaven and ask for the power to create my own universe, will I get it?
  8. The Qur'an says that everything a believer desires will be available to him in Heaven. Does that include sex with Allah himself?
  9. What will happen to transsexuals in Heaven? Will female-to-male transsexuals be given houris? Will male-to female transsexuals be women in Heaven?
  10. If I ask for a KFC meal in Heaven will I get it? Even with the trademark?

  12. If I’m in heaven and ask to have sex with one of Muhammad’s wives, will Allah grant my wish?
  13. If I am in Heaven and ask for a drink that is cooler than the absolute zero, will I get it?
  14. If I wish for the latest book about string theory in Heaven, will Allah give it to me, even if this book is copyrighted?
  15. If I ask Allah to give me an infinitely long penis in Heaven, would he?
  16. If I am in Heaven and wish to be cloned, will Allah grant my wish? Does this mean that Allah can clone me? What about the ethical part of cloning? Does this make Allah unethical?
  17. How can bodies in Heaven overcome the aging process? Does Allah have anti-aging agents? He could make a fortune by selling them on Earth.


  1. After death the infidels will be tortured by a bald snake. Is it the same snake from the Egyptian myths (Apep)?
  2. How do you know Muslims won't go to hell for the crime of not using common sense?
  3. Why does Allah hand out an infinite punishment for a finite crime?
  4. What will Muslims do if their friend or family member is in eternal Hell? Forget about it and return to their 72 virgins?

  7. On the Day of Resurrection, wont you even feel a little bit of guilt when Allah spares you from hell-fire by allowing you to throw Jews and Christians into hell instead?
  8. How can Heaven be utter bliss when you know that people you love and care about are burning in Hell?
  9. If all non-believers go to hell, then everyone who died before the religion was revealed would end up in Hell. Why were they never given a chance?

  11. Do you really think a merciful God and an eternal Hell go along in the first place?
  12. If our souls are not physical, how can we burn in Hell?
  13. Are the likes of Albert Einstein, Mother Theresa, Gandhi, Cyrus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Mandela going to hell for not becoming a Muslim?
  14. In Islam, committing suicide means eternal hell. But does someone really deserve eternal torture just because he was too depressed to live?
  15. What about agnostics? Will they go to heaven or hell?


  1. Do you have to wear a hijab in front of an intersexual or third gender person?
  2. If you're in the presence of a lesbian or bisexual girl, should you put a hijab on in front of her?
  3. If a guy is asexual, can you take off your hijab in front of him?
  4. If the hijab makes a girl look more prettier than usual, should she wear hijab?

Islamic sects[edit]

  1. Didn't Muhammad say only 1 out of 73 sects go to heaven and the rest to hell? What chances have you got?
  2. Surah 5:3 says Islam was perfected. If so, why are there so many sects?
  3. Why do you deny the prophecy of Mirza Ghulam Ahmed?
  4. Why do you deny the prophecy of Bahá'u'lláh?
  5. Why do you deny the prophecy of Rashad Khalifa?
  6. Why didn't Muhammad appoint a leader before his death to avoid Shi'ites and other sects splitting up from Sunnis?
For Sunnis
  1. Is the term 'Sunni' mentioned in the Qur'an?
  2. What do you think about mut'ah and misyar?
  3. Why do you criticize Shi'ites for Mut'ah when Sunnis practice Misyar which is essentially the same thing?
  4. If Shi'ites are wrong, why did Allah allow Ali and his Shi'ite army to defeat the Sunnis at three separate battles of Bassorah, Siffin and Nahrawan?
  5. Why do Salafis always seem so serious?
  6. Why do Salafis and Wahhabis destroy graves of Muslim scholars?
  7. Why do some of you try to distance yourself from Salafis (or "Wahhabis") in front of kafir, when they are the most pious Sunni Muslims? Are you ashamed of the Salaf (first 3 generations of Muslims)?
For Shi'ites
  1. Be honest. Aren't you a little embarrassed by the name of your sect or do you enjoy referring to yourself as a Shi'ite?
  2. Why doesn't Allah and Imam Zaman heal Ali Khamenei's hand?
  3. If Allah wanted Ali to be the substitute after Muhammad, why did he fail in his plan?
  4. Do you honestly believe slicing children's foreheads with a blade on Ashura isn't child abuse?
  5. Instead of legalizing mut'ah, why don't you simply just legalize prostitution?
  6. Why do you curse people (such as sahaba) who died many centuries ago?
For Ahmadis
  1. Which death is more humiliating for a prophet of Islam; being crucified or dying of diarrhoea in a public toilet?
  2. Why do you claim there are 200 million of you when in reality there are only 10 million Ahmadis worldwide?
  3. Considering Ahmadis believe only they are true Muslims, does it surprise you that you've been declared a kafir by Muslims the world-over?
For Baha'is
  1. Two alternative Baha'i organizations have been sued by the Baha'i Faith organization for using the word "Baha'i" to describe their beliefs. That's like the Catholic Church suing Protestants for calling themselves "Christians". Do you agree that this makes your faith look ridiculous and petty?
  2. You believe that eventually all people and nations should come under the theocratic rule of the infallibly inspired Baha'i Universal House of Justice. Caliphate and Shari'ah anyone?
  3. In the Kitáb-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) Baha'u'llah limits the number of wives to 2, but he had 3 wives. Hypocrite much?
  4. Bahá'u'lláh was a polygamist who allowed men to have up to 2 wives, so why is polygamy forbidden by Baha'i law?
  5. In the Kitáb-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) Baha'u'llah commands that a thief should have a visible mark put on his forehead after the third offense. And you think this barbarian is the greatest Manifestation of God?
  6. Being such a new faith, you'd expect it to incorporate many liberal ideals. So why are homosexual relationships forbidden and homosexuality seen as a handicap that should be treated? Was Baha'u'llah a homophobe?
  7. In the Kitáb-i-Aqdas (Most Holy Book) sodomy is forbidden. What if the wife enjoys it too?
  8. Abdu'l Baha and Shoghi Effendi are both infallible, so why can't they decide if Confucius was or was not a Manifestation?
  9. You believe all the greatest faiths founded by Manifestations differ only in non-essential aspects of their doctrines. Who do you think you are fooling with this tripe?
  10. If Baha'u'llah is the apex of all previous Manifestations, why can't he walk on water or split the moon?
  11. Each Manifestation is more perfect than the previous one...really? You honestly believe Muhammad's teachings are superior to Christ's or Buddha's?
  12. Why do you think Muhammad was so great, when his followers are killing you? Doesn't this suggest that there's something wrong with his teachings?
  13. Buddha was a monotheist and a prophet? Excuse me while my sides split from laughter.
  14. You believe Manifestations are all sinless. Moses, Abraham and others would disagree. Who are we to believe; them or your nonsensical beliefs?
  15. In "Baha'u'llah and the New Era" (official Baha'i text) Abdu'l Baha ("Slave of Baha", the infallible guide and eldest son of Baha'u'llah) stated that the Kingdom of God would be established on earth by 1957. Where is it, and why has this statemant been removed from the 1970 republication?
  16. Bab declared Mirza Yahya (Baha'u'llah's brother) as his successor and presented Baha'u'llah as an inferior. Why do Baha'is suppress this fact?
  17. If Baha'is are so peaceful, why was the faith founded on violence and assassinations between supporters of Mirza Yahya and Baha'u'llah?
  18. You believe Christianity was perverted during the first century (as per Shoghi Effendi's claim). Isn't this a little hypocritical coming from a faith that suppresses source materials and revises the writings of deceased authors in futile attempts to make your absurd beliefs match historical reality?
  19. Abdu'l Baha "excommunicated" practically all his closest relatives and deprived them of their income from Baha'u'llah's estate after his fathers death. Do you agree that your infallible guide was a cruel heartless ignoramus?
  20. Based on the example set by the infallible Abdu'l Baha, Covenant-breakers (heretics and apostates) are often treated unkindly and ostracized by other Baha'is. Maybe your faith is not so different to mainstream Islam after all?
For Quranists
  1. Why do you deny the hadith? Is it because you're ashamed that your prophet was a mass-murdering pedophile?
  2. Does it bother you that even without the hadith, the Qur'an sanctions pedophilia, domestic abuse, and many other crimes? Shouldn't you embrace your apostasy and get rid of the Qur'an?
  3. Why do some of you accept the hadiths that make Muhammad look good and reject the ones that make him look bad? Do you enjoy being intellectually dishonest?
  4. The historical evidence for Muhammad is found in the hadith and sirat. If you do not accept these sources, how do you know your prophet ever existed?
  5. If you reject the hadith, you lose the whole context and order of the Qur'anic revelations. So is there no compulsion in religion or do you have to slay the idolaters wherever you find them? Should I flip a coin?
  6. Why would Allah protect the Qur'an, but allow his entire ummah for 1000+ years to be led astray by corrupted hadith? Doesn't that make his protection worthless?
  7. I've never met a Quranist in real life. Are you really an embarrassed Sunni who likes to call yourself a "Quranist" when you're on the net?
  8. Why do you believe the Qur'an is the uncorrupted word of God, when the narrators of corrupted hadith are the same people who passed down the Qur'an?
  9. The Qur'an never explain how to offer salat. Who taught you how to pray?
  10. The Qur'an says there should be 3 daily prayers. Who told you to pray 5 times?
  11. The Qur'an mentions Abu Lahab. Who is he and why does Allah hate him? (Remember; no peeking at corrupted hadith)
  12. Does it make you feel sad knowing that most Muslim thinks you follow a cult and that you're a kafir?
  13. What's it like being in an obscure cult? Do you have a secret handshake? Do all ten of you get together on Halloween and dance naked around an open fire?
  14. Why accuse the Sunnis and Shi'ites, who've been following hadith for 1000+ years, of innovation, when it's you who's the innovator? Isn't that just a little bit hypocritical?
  15. What did Muhammad look like? How many wives did he have and what were their names? What were the names of his children? How old was he when he first received his prophethood? When and how did he die? Do you even know anything about your prophet?
  16. When you perform Hajj, would you dare announce that you're a Quranist or would it be your dirty little secret?
  17. Why do you accept the revelations given to someone who you know nothing about?
  18. Did you know that Rashad Khalifa was a lying pedophile and rapist just like your prophet before him?
  19. If you don't accept the history behind the compilation of the Qur'an, what makes it different from any other poorly written Medieval text? How do you know that (like The True Furqan) its not an old parody?


  1. Why do Muslims get so excited about a little black meteorite stone at the corner of the Ka'ba?
  2. Why do Muslims follow pre-Islamic pagan practices of circling the Ka'aba?
  3. Why do you have to circumambulate the Ka'aba seven times? Why not just once? Why not eight or six times?
  4. The Black Stone in the Ka'aba has been broken into several fragments. Why did not Allah protect this important 'holy' stone from damage?
  5. Is there any evidence that the Ka'aba is God's house?
  6. Why does God want you to walk counter-clockwise around Ka'aba and then run up and down the hills of Al-Safa and Al-Marwah?
  7. The Ka'aba was destroyed at least twice after Muhammad's death. Why didn't Allah send birds to protect the Ka'aba then?
  8. Why does Allah want you to kiss the black stone and then go to Mount Arafat?
  9. Will Allah send birds to save Kaa'ba if infidels launch missiles towards Mecca? In fact Kaa'ba has been attacked twice after Islam. Why didn’t Allah send anything for those attacks?
  10. Why doesn’t Allah just make an electromagnetic field around the Kaa'ba to protect it?
  11. If the cubical shape was redesigned to be spherical, would you still bow to it?
  12. Whenever royalty or important persons come to the Ka'aba, security give them a special place for prayer in the hateem. Why this sort of inequality at the Ka'aba?
  13. There are hundreds of cleaners at the Ka'aba who regularly clean away pigeon droppings. If the Masjid al-Haram is truly holy, why does Allah allow birds to defile the mosque?
  14. If I went to the Ka'aba and put a cubical instead of a triangle, how would Allah react?


  1. If Muhammad was illiterate, why does Sahih Hadith such as Bukhari say he used to write letters?[1]
  2. Since according to Muslims, literary excellence supposedly proves divine inspiration, was Shakespeare divinely inspired too?
  3. Arabic is the language of Allah, but why choose a language which has such varied definitions for various words leading to interpretation problems? Does he enjoy being difficult?


  1. Why does surah 23:5 allow men to have pre-marital sex with slave girls?
  2. Why do many Muslim women disagree with their husband getting a 2nd wife even though Allah has allowed up to four?
  3. How many Muslims end up marrying fat ugly women because they never get a chance to see them before the wedding?

  5. (women) If your husband had 3 other wives, and wanted a groupie, would you comply?
  6. Why does Islam ban adoption? What's so evil about adoption?
  7. Muhammad said that a woman should nurse a grown man in order to stay in the same house alone. Is that good advice?
  8. Why does Allah allow and encourage marriage between cousins? Doesn't he know it causes genetic disorders in offspring?


  1. If a girl is on her period, and can't fast during Ramadan, should she tell male family members or eat in secret?
  2. Why can a woman on her period not touch the Qur'an? Does the filth go from her vagina to her hands?
  3. A woman cannot pray to her creator for a quarter of the time because she is "dirty" and has "a disease". How do you feel about that?


  1. Do you think its okay that Muhammad beheaded a whole tribe (banu qurayza) as if they were all guilty? is it okay that even kids with traces of pubic hair were killed?
  2. Is it a true sign of being Allah’s Prophet that a man spreads so much fear and so little wisdom?
  3. What if Muhammad was simply a popular folk figure who's story was blown out of proportion?
