The Chosen Nation
Dear Dr Ibrahim,
I would like to explain my point of view about islam to some libyan muslim whose understanding of Islam is superficial.
first: All people of the world at all time of Earth history agree there is (Elah), but some people throughout the history made intermidiate associate to get nearer to (Allah) like stone. This happen because of thier tribal understanding that for any one to get to thier leader he has to have (Wasta) so they thought Allah also need (wasta). Also they found some people like (AL-Salihen) and (ALawlia) have Dawa Mustajaba so after death of those ALsalihon they used them as (wasta) by coming near thier Tomb and start praying until they used them as associate with Allah. Allah as (Elah) has duty to correct this misunderstanding like the manger of company who see the compnay go wrong and need correction. so Allah send massage to the People through massanger to correct this misunderstanding which is the profet. the aim of the massage is not to please any one but to be the absolut truth. If any one want the truth he should look and read the original massage like (The Quran). Many people will find something in the massage which they do not like because it make him/her uncomfortable like (preventing Riba money or Preventing Zina or Call for Jehad) but we as human do not know the future and our knowlege is very little, like worker in company and manger of company. in summery I am hundered percent shure that (Allah) do EXIST and He is one and The QURAN is massage of Allah and Profet Mohamed is his massanger. Whatever we are weak, whatever we are hungery, whatever we are humiliated, whatever we are poor, Allah do Exist and he is very kind to us (more kind to us than ourself) look how we are kind to our childern despite thier problem, look how we love our wife despite thier problem. we may hurt our childern but we do that because we love them we think 10 year ahead when they grow and we prepare them for the future. (Allah) also prepare us for the future, he chose us to be his chosen people and that is enough. imagen the President of USA chose you to enter the white house or chosen to be Nobal Prize winer, if that is great! How great will be to know that Allah (The king of the Kings) has chosen you and your nation (ARAB) to be his favourite Nation.
