# Muslims always attack the Christian concept of Original sin and the Hindu/Buddhist concept of Karma. So how do you explain innocent children being born with Aids or being born deformed? Is it "Allah's will" to make innocent children suffer? Does he think it’s funny to create Hermaphrodites and Schizophrenics?
# Why does Islam [[Concerns with Islam: Adoption|ban adoption]]?<ref>"''"God did not make your adopted son as your own sons. To declare them so is your empty claim. God's word is righteous and constitutes true guidance."''" - {{Quran|33|4}}</ref><ref>Ekram Ibrahim - [ Orphanage day puts adoption in spotlight] - Al-Masry Al-Youm, April 1, 2010</ref> What's so evil about it?
# Little children may believe in Cinderella talking to birds and mice and stuff or even in Santa Clause. What makes you smarter than a child if you believe that Suleiman, as the Qur'an says,<ref>"''Till, when they reached the Valley of the Ants, an ant exclaimed: O ants! Enter your dwellings lest Solomon and his armies crush you, unperceiving. And (Solomon) smiled, laughing at her speech, and said: My Lord, arouse me to be thankful for Thy favour wherewith Thou hast favoured me and my parents, and to do good that shall be pleasing unto Thee, and include me in (the number of) Thy righteous slaves.''" - {{cite quran|27|18|end=19|style=ref}}</ref> was talking to ants?
# Why do you say there's no compulsion in religion even though the hadith says<ref>"''Narrated As-Saburah: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Command a boy to pray when he reaches the age of seven years. When he becomes ten years old, then beat him for prayer.''" - {{Abu Dawud|2|494}}</ref> you should hit kids who don't pray?

# [[Aisha_and_Puberty#Scientific|Lina Medina]] (born September 27, 1933, in Ticrapo, Peru), had her menarche at age 8 months.<ref>[ Six decades later, world’s youngest mother awaits aid] - The Telegraph, August 27, 2002</ref> So is it okay to have sex with an 8 month old baby?
# Is sex between a 53 year old man and a [[Aisha_Age_of_Consummation|9 year old girl]], immoral or moral?

# Is Pedophilia for any reason by any gender of an adult, you being the child of any adult, right or wrong?

# Is Pedophilia, okay if even if it is religion?
# What would people think of Muhammad a 53 year old man, having sex with Aisha who is a 9 year old girl in today's world, if Muhammad and Aisha were alive now, instead of back then?
# Would you have liked it to have been Aisha being a minor having sex, with Muhammad who is an adult?
Now imagine you are a 9 year old girl having sex with a 53 year old man,
is that 53 year old man being moral, or immoral?
Is the 9 year old girl a victim of that 53 year old man's immorality?
 # If Allah is All-Powerful why does He need soldiers ie. Terrorists to do His will, and not just get rid of His enemies Himself?# Would you want to be a Non-Muslim who is a victim of terrorist activities against you by a radical Muslim just because you are a Non-Muslim?# Would you want to be a Non-Muslim who is a victim of terrorist activities against you get justified by a radical Muslim?# Would you want to be an Ex-Muslim who is a victim of terrorist activities against you by a radical Muslim just because you are a no longer a Muslim?# Would you want to be an Ex-Muslim who is a victim of terrorism justifying terrorist activities against you just because you are no longer a Muslim?# Would you want a radical Non-Muslim terrorist activities against you just because you are a Muslim?# Would you want a radical Non-Muslim justifying terrorist activities against you just because you are a Muslim?# Would you want a radical Muslim committing terrorist activities against you just because you are not a radical Muslim?# Would you want a radical Muslim justifying terrorist activities against you just because you are not a radical Muslim?# Would you want a radical Muslim committing terrorist activities against you just because you are a radical Muslim, by a radical Muslim who does not consider you radical enough a radical Muslim enough?# Would you want a radical Muslim justifying terrorist activities against you just because you are a radical Muslim, however a more radical Muslim does not consider you to be a radical Muslim enough?# Are Muslims or anybody who engages in terrorist activity, moral or immoral?# Where was Allah and what was Allah's role on 2/26/1993 in the World Trade Center Bombing when a car bomb damaged the World Trade Center?# What about Muslims murdered in by Muslim terrorism?

In fact, why is Islam the only religion in conflict with every single one of today's major world religions?
# To this day there is sectarian conflict between Sunnis and Shi'ites in Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and Pakistan. Did Allah plan this?
# Why are Muslims often concerned about Palestinian Muslims but not about Iraqis, Yemenis, Sudanese and Pakistanis who get butchered by fellow Muslims?

# If Allah sent angels to help Muhammad defeat the pagans at the Battle of Badr, why did he not send them at larger and more decisive battles where non-Muslims checked the growth of Islam eg. [[w:Charles Martel|Charles Martel]] in [[w:Battle of Tours|Poitiers]] (732), the Hindu Alliance in [[w:Battle of Rajasthan|Rajasthan]] (738), [[w:Hulagu Khan|Hulagu Khan]] in [[w:Siege of Baghdad (1258)|Baghdad]] (1258), the Holy League in [[w:Battle of Lepanto|Lepanto]] (1571) and the Hapsburgs in [[w:Battle of Vienna|Vienna]] (1683)?
# Why does Allah allow Israel to commit terrorism against Islam, why does Israel exist?
# Should Sharia Law become law in places like,
USA, Canada, UK, Rome, Mexico, Brazil, Sputh Africa, Uganda,
Australia, New Zealand etc? Why or why not?
# Why should Muslims demand footwashing stations at airports, prayers at Christian Churches, children being indoctrinated at public schools on Islam?
Should Christians demand prayer chapels at airports?
Should Christans demand Christian prayers, at Muslim Mosques?
Should children be indoctrinated with Christianity at public schools because Christians demaned it?
# Should Muslim children have Fridays off school because it's the Sabbath?
# A Muslim must pray facing Mecca, and to pray with their back to Mecca would be sacrilegious. From a flat-earth viewpoint, this makes sense. But the earth is spherical, so if you pray facing Mecca, you also have your back to Mecca at the same time (and vice-versa). How do you explain this?
# The closer we get to the North and South poles,<ref>For further details, see: [[The Ramadan Pole Paradox]]</ref> the longer our days or nights become. They can eventually extend for up to several months each, making the fourth Pillar of Islam impossible to practice without starving yourself to death. Was Allah unaware of the poles and Eskimos?
# Should a Non-Muslim or an Ex-Muslim who is not being a pedophile, not being a terrorist, etc. go to Heaven?
# Should a Muslim who is a pedophile and a terrorist go to Heaven?
# What happens to babies who died and will die that never accepted Islam, will they go to Hell?
# Is it fair that (according to multiple sahih hadith) on the Day of Resurrection Allah will spare you from hell-fire by allowing you to [[Qur'an,_Hadith_and_Scholars:People_of_the_Book#Sahih_Muslim|throw Jews and Christians]] into hell<ref>"''Abu Musa' reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your rescue from Hell-Fire.''" - {{Muslim|37|6665}}</ref><ref>"''Abu Burda reported on the authority of his father that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: No Muslim would die but Allah would admit in his stead a Jew or a Christian in Hell-Fire.

Abd al-'Aziz took an oath: By One besides Whom there is no god but He, thrice that his father had narrated that to him from Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him).''" - {{Muslim|37|6666}}, See also: {{Muslim|37|6667}}</ref><ref>"''Abu Burda reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: There would come people amongst the Muslims on the Day of Resurrection with as heavy sins as a mountain, and Allah would forgive them and He would place in their stead the Jews and the Christians. (As far as I think), Abu Raub said: I do not know as to who is in doubt. Abu Burda said: I narrated it to 'Umar b. 'Abd al-'Aziz, whereupon he said: Was it your father who narrated it to you from Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him)? I said: Yes.''" - {{Muslim|37|6668}}</ref> instead?
# Every non-Muslim who died before Islam was "revealed during their time-period/region" is in Hell (this includes [[Jahannam#Muhammad.27s_Parents_are_in_Hell|Muhammad's parents]]).<ref>"''Abu Huraira reported: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) visited the grave of his mother and he wept, and moved others around him to tears, and said: I sought permission from my Lord to beg forgiveness for her but it was not granted to me, and I sought permission to visit her grave and it was granted to me.

He said: (He) is in the Fire. When he turned away, he (the Holy Prophet) called him and said: Verily my father and your father are in the Fire.''" - {{Muslim|1|398}}</ref> Why were they never given a chance?
# Why does Allah allow<ref>"''Prohibited to you (For marriage) are:- Your mothers, daughters, sisters; father's sisters, Mother's sisters; brother's daughters, sister's daughters; foster-mothers (Who gave you suck), foster-sisters; your wives' mothers; your step-daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom ye have gone in,- no prohibition if ye have not gone in;- (Those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins; and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time, except for what is past; for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful;''" - {{Quran|4|23}}</ref> and even encourage (through Muhammad's example)<ref>Muhammad himself married cousins, as he did with Zaynab bint Jahsh, who was not only the daughter of Umaimah bint Abd al-Muttalib, one of his father's sisters, but was also divorced from a marriage with Muhammad's adopted son, Zayd ibn Haritha. - Maududi (1967), Tafhimul Quran, Chapter Al Ahzab</ref> [[Cousin Marriage in Islam|marriage between cousins]]?

# Do you think it’s right that a man can divorce for any reason (by pronounces "talaq" three times)<ref>"''Talaq is the term used to mean divorce in accordance with Islamic rules. Under traditional Islamic Law a bare Talaq divorce takes place when the husband pronounces three times “I divorce you”. Such a pronouncement has the effect of dissolving the marriage instantly.''" - [{{Reference archive|1=|2=2012-01-28}} The Validity of Talaq Divorce in the UK] - Shahzea Tahir, Woolley & Co family law, accessed January 28, 2012</ref> but a woman has to plead her case before a judge?
Is domestic violence, moral or immoral?
# Fifty percent of men and women worldwide have had extra-marital sex. So, in theory, do half the people men on earth deserve to be [[stoning|stoned]] or lashed?
# Does Allah really want the children of adulterers to grow up without their parents because they need to be executed?
# Does Allah really think public whipping is the most enlightened way to deal with those who have sex before marriage?
# Instead of the outdated and unreliable method of four witnesses to adultery, why not just use DNA samples which non-Muslims invented?
# If someone is raped, is it the attacker's fault or the victim's fault? [[Rape in Islam]]
==Natural Disasters==
# Why did Allah create Natural Disasters in the first place?
# Why does Allah mostly target [[Accidents and Natural Disasters in the Muslim World|Muslim majority]] countries<ref>(Out of the 10 most deadly earthquakes in the last 50 years, 6 of the 8 countries affected were populated by a Muslim majority.) Peter Hough - [ Understanding Global Security] - Published by Routledge; 2 edition, 21 April 2008, ISBN: 978-0415421423</ref> in major earthquakes? If this is a test of faith, doesn't the indiscriminate killing of innocent women and children make him unworthy of worship?
# 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?
==Rules & Rituals==
# Why can't you simply say in your head "Thanks thanks Allah!" instead of praying to Allah with gestures that don't make any sense and also why do you need to carry around a Prayer Rug everywhere you go?
# Why would Allah care about which foot<ref>[ Sunnah of Going to the Bathroom (Toilet)] - Zikr</ref> we enter the toilet with, and why does he care about which shoe we put on first?
# Why does Allah care whether you use [[Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Toilet Etiquette#Clean yourself with an odd number of stones|even or odd numbers]] of toilet paper or stones<ref>"''Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Whoever performs ablution should clean his nose with water by putting the water in it and then blowing it out, and whoever cleans his private parts with stones should do it with odd number of stones."''" - {{Bukhari|1|4|162}}</ref><ref>"''Abu Huraira reported Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: When anyone wipes himself with pebbles (after answering the call of nature) he must make use of an odd number and when any one of you performs ablution he must snuff in his nose water and then clean it.''" - {{Muslim|2|458}}</ref> in the loo?
# Why does Allah care whether or not you sleep on your stomach?
# Why does Allah want you to trim your mustache and grow your beard?<ref>"''Ibn Umar said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be opon him) said: Act against the polytheists, trim closely the moustache and grow beard.''" - {{Muslim|2|500}}</ref><ref>"''Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Trim closely the moustache, and grow beard, and thus act against the fire-worshippers.''" - {{Muslim|2|501}}</ref> Why is he preoccupied with such trivial things?
# Why in Islam is it forbidden to touch a dog, but not a rat, when rats are much more dirty?
# Why does Allah recommend you to dye your hair?<ref>"''Narrated Abu Huraira : The Prophet said, "Jews and Christians do not dye their hair so you should do the opposite of what they do.''" - {{Bukhari|7|72|786}}</ref> Why on earth would an omnipotent deity care what color your hair is?
# Why does Allah forbid silk for men?<ref>"''Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar: Umar bought a silk cloak from the market, took it to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Take it and adorn yourself with it during the 'Id and when the delegations visit you." Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) replied, "This dress is for those who have no share (in the Hereafter)." After a long period Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) sent to Umar a cloak of silk brocade. Umar came to Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) with the cloak and said, "O Allah's Apostle! You said that this dress was for those who had no share (in the Hereafter); yet you have sent me this cloak." Allah's Apostle said to him, "Sell it and fulfill your needs by it."''" - {{Bukhari|2|15|69}}, See also: {{Bukhari|3|47|782}}, and {{Bukhari|8|73|104}}</ref> Why does he care what clothing material you have on?
# How could Allah exist before everything existed, how is that NOT a logical fallacy?
# If there truly is [[Islam and Science|science in the Qur'an]], why didn't Maurice Bucaille<ref>[ Is Dr. Maurice Bucaille a Muslim?] - Answering Islam</ref> convert to Islam?
# Other religions claim to have scientific miracles too, so wouldn't this mean that the Islamic argument is void?
 # Why do you claim the Bible is corrupt but at the same time proclaim Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible, which Muhammad is NEVER mentioned in The Bible ANYWHERE?
#If you believe only parts of the Bible have been corrupted, how do you differentiate between the good and the bad? Don't you think arbitrarily choosing whatever verses suit your argument is intellectually dishonest?
# The Qur'an never says the physical scriptures of the previous revelations were corrupted, only [[Corruption of Previous Scriptures (Qur'an 2:79)|their interpretations]]. So why does the Qur'an contradicts the message of the Bible?
# If you believe previous scriptures were corrupted because Allah was "testing" humans or he expected humans to look after their scriptures, doesn't that negate his omnipotence?
# Why couldn't Allah just create Islam before he created everything?
# How do you know that Muhammad was just pretending not to know how to read or write just to get followers to Muhammad, rather than Allah?
# If Allah is Forgiving and Merciful, why does Allah command the deaths of anyone, better yet, why did Allah CREATE sin?
# How could Allah exist, before existence ever existed, how is that not a logical fallacy?
# Why does Allah need terrorists to do Jihad for Him? Is Allah not All-Powerful to do Jihad Himself?
# Why can't the Qur'an just tell people how it's supposed to be interpreted, was Allah not very smart?
# Why did Allah create Satan?
# Why does the Qur'an not mention dinosaurs?
# Why does Allah prefer sending scriptures to desert regions of the world?
# Why does the Qur'an only speak about religions which were prevalent in Arabia at the time of its revelation? Why are there no Dharmic or Taoic religions mentioned?
# Why does the Qur'an repeat the same things over and over and over? Wouldn’t the space have been better filled by covering fundamental Muslim beliefs such as the Five Pillars or circumcision, neither of which are mentioned in the Qur’an?
# The Qur'an<ref>"''He said: Now, because Thou hast sent me astray, verily I shall lurk in ambush for them on Thy Right Path.''" - {{Quran|7|16}}</ref> claims Satan misleads Muslims - so how can we trust Islamic scholars, or indeed any Muslim?
# The Qur'an says faces will turn black if the person is a sinner, and the face will turn white if the person is not.<ref>"''On the day when (some) faces shall turn white and (some) faces shall turn black; then as to those whose faces turn black: Did you disbelieve after your believing? Taste therefore the chastisement because you disbelieved.''" - {{Quran|3|106}}</ref><ref>"''And on the day of resurrection you shall see those who lied against Allah; their faces shall be blackened. Is there not in hell an abode for the proud?''" - {{Quran|39|60}}</ref> In the light of this, what will happen to black people, how is this not racist??

Taking verse 2:23<ref>"''And if you are in doubt as to that which We have revealed to Our servant, then produce a chapter like it and call on your witnesses besides Allah if you are truthful. ''" - {{Quran|2|23}}</ref> with its "Surah like it" challenge into consideration, isn't the Qur'an discredited by its own criteria?
# Does Allah really want [[Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Homosexuality|homosexuals]] to be put to death<ref>"''Narated By Abdullah ibn Abbas : The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If you find anyone doing as Lot's people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.''" - {{Abudawud|38|4447}}</ref><ref>"''Narated By Abdullah ibn Abbas : If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.''" - {{Abudawud|38|4448}}</ref><ref>Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid - [ Can those who have committed homosexual acts be forgiven, and is it permissible for such a person to get married?] - Islam Q&A, Fatwa No. 5177</ref> for expressing what they feel, often against what they wish they felt?

Women are not permitted to beat their marital partners, men are.<ref>"''Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.''" - {{Quran|4|34}}</ref> A male inherits twice that of a female<ref>"''Allah chargeth you concerning (the provision for) your children: to the male the equivalent of the portion of two females, and if there be women more than two, then theirs is two-thirds of the inheritance, and if there be one (only) then the half. And to each of his parents a sixth of the inheritance, if he have a son; and if he have no son and his parents are his heirs, then to his mother appertaineth the third; and if he have brethren, then to his mother appertaineth the sixth, after any legacy he may have bequeathed, or debt (hath been paid). Your parents and your children: Ye know not which of them is nearer unto you in usefulness. It is an injunction from Allah. Lo! Allah is Knower, Wise.''" - {{Quran|4|11}}</ref> And the testimony of a women in court is worth half that of a man's testimony.<ref>"''O ye who believe! When ye contract a debt for a fixed term, record it in writing. Let a scribe record it in writing between you in (terms of) equity. No scribe should refuse to write as Allah hath taught him, so let him write, and let him who incurreth the debt dictate, and let him observe his duty to Allah his Lord, and diminish naught thereof. But if he who oweth the debt is of low understanding, or weak, or unable himself to dictate, then let the guardian of his interests dictate in (terms of) equity. And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not (at hand) then a man and two women, of such as ye approve as witnesses, so that if the one erreth (through forgetfulness) the other will remember. And the witnesses must not refuse when they are summoned. Be not averse to writing down (the contract) whether it be small or great, with (record of) the term thereof. That is more equitable in the sight of Allah and more sure for testimony, and the best way of avoiding doubt between you; save only in the case when it is actual merchandise which ye transfer among yourselves from hand to hand. In that case it is no sin for you if ye write it not. And have witnesses when ye sell one to another, and let no harm be done to scribe or witness. If ye do (harm to them) lo! it is a sin in you. Observe your duty to Allah. Allah is teaching you. And Allah is knower of all things.''" - {{Quran|2|282}}</ref> Considering these rules set out by the Qur'an, how can you possibly claim Islam stands for equality between the sexes?
#If women observing hijab is deemed by Islamic logic necessary to prevent a woman arousing lust in a man, why are men also not enjoined to wear a burqa to prevent women and homosexuals from lusting after them?
# In some tropical countries, the weather is hot and humid, Muslim women who wearing a hijab may feel uncomfortable, especially when doing physical exercises, did Allah know this?
# Should Males also be forced to wear a Hijab the same as Females, how is that not Sexist?
# Are Gay bashers, moral or immoral?
