logical7and you cannot say that Muhammad pbuh was wrong when you do not even know what things he said.

Hi there, OpB. I'm rather surprised (and pleased!) to see you again...especially here!
Hope your daughter is feeling better day by day.

No, God does not have emotions as people do. You are correct. Descriptive words are used in which we can relate to, but our knowledge and the limitations of our minds cannot truly understand HIM.
God is merciful, but the limitations our minds place upon mercy means we cannot truly comprehend the scope of the Absolute and Perfect Mercy of God.
God is Just, but with the limitations of our minds we cannot understand this attribute in perfect context either...
the list goes on with all the attributes of God. There are more than 100... btw.
We can only know God within the limits of our capacity, and HE is so far beyond our limits of understanding that we simply do the best we can within our limits.edit on 26-10-2013 by OpinionatedB because: (no reason given)edit on 26-10-2013 by OpinionatedB because: (no reason given)
Its an abbreviation for the english words Peace be Upon Him. (arabic say Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) It is asking for God's blessing upon the Prophets (saw) head. It is respectful. Abbreviations keep it simple...writing is more time consuming than speaking.
Can you understand why all that incomprehensibility would make someone uneasy?
She could hear you. It isn't an "off chance" - it's a surety.
so I called her and even though she was not lucid or awake I asked them to put the phone to her ear so I could speak to her on the off chance she could hear me...
That was the perfect thing to do. Oh, I'm so sorry for your loss and your pain. Give neno a hug, and think of me in the group; your daughter is safe, your daughter IS HOME. God bless you all.
And I told her I loved her, and I told her I was alright, and that Gene was taking care of me, and that she could go because God was calling her now....
and she died a short time later...
Don't you think these points are worth examining by yourself before believing a tall claim of someone being god? When you are so skeptical and critical of a claim of prophethood by Muhammad pbuh which in comparison is much more easily acceptable.
All flourid prose aside, all you have done is string together religious/spiritual trigger words and phrases which are specifically chosen to give the illusion of wisdom (in the total absence of facts and evidence) and strike an emotional chord amongst those less inclined to accept the true nature of human existance.
He sounds a lot like modern TV Evangelist shysters .. if they had a hoard of armed followers that is.
I'm not sure who you're talking to, here, Eryiedes. Have you ever lost a loved family member to death? The emotions experienced are indescribable; rather like when one has a baby - it can't be explained, it must be experienced in order to understand.
Whether or not there is anything beyond Earth, we are a fragile bunch. The world is a frightening place, and we need one another. So, when unpleasant things like death face us, it is usually without "tools" and "skills" already in place. The words we string together and the phrases we can come up with are a part of our Divine nature reaching out to one another.
I don't feel shame for sharing spiritual thoughts with someone who is suffering. I've been there, too.
I am saying it's simply emotional solace and that for me is an empty cup.
To be honest...I can't think of one religion major WITHOUT a horde of armed followers.
