    I have questions, serious questions and I hope I can get straight answers from studious Muslims.
    1. What is the interpretation of the Quran that promotes terrorism?
    2. What is the interpretation of the Quran that denounces terrorism?
    3. What qualifies Muhammad to be considered a Prophet?
    4. Who compiled the original Quran?
    5. What do Muslims believe will happen to "non believers" who die without accepting Islam?
    6. Why do Muslims believe Jesus was a great prophet, but not the Son of God like he said?
    7. What do Muslims believe about the death of innocent children?
    8. What is the real doctrine behind the 72 virgins and how do you qualify to get them?
    9. What is the Islamic rule on Polygamy?
    10. Once you achieve paradise, then what?

    Please enlighten me.

    The truth about Islam is that the voices of war and intolerance appear to be louder than the peace message.

    I'm waiting for Muslims to wake up.

    That would seem to be the case, however since peaceful Muslims are not loud and don't cause headlines, I need to know if they are the majority or the minority.

    Aaaah... I really have no idea about any of this stuff, but do wonder as you do what the answers are.

    But, my guess is, you might get some islam or muslim apologist in here that'll spin and call you names, but you won't get any straight answers. Not one.

    Let the gentle voices of peaceful Muslims, Christians, and Jews sing with one heart, we are One.

    1. What is the interpretation of the Quran that promotes terrorism?
    I think it's the standard 'defend yourself' idea that any person religious or not would understand.

    2. What is the interpretation of the Quran that denounces terrorism?
    Depends on the definition - struggle against oppression is ok... even if someone else call syou a bad name, like 'terrorist'.

    3. What qualifies Muhammad to be considered a Prophet?
    That, according to the Quran, he was spoken to by God and given a message. Like Moses (also a Prophet in Islam, and Jesus, also a revered prophet).

    4. Who compiled the original Quran?
    I think followers/friends of Muhammed... he was illiterate I believe.


    5. What do Muslims believe will happen to "non believers" who die without accepting Islam?
    No idea, but I think they get judged on their actions... not whether or not they were believers as much as Christianity for example.

    6. Why do Muslims believe Jesus was a great prophet, but not the Son of God like he said?
    He didn't actually say that, did he? In fact most don't believe he is genetically divine, per se.
    * Didn't he ask 'God, why has thou forsaken me?' at some pint? Would he have been talking to himself according to Christians? He was pretty hardcore Jewish anyhow, it was John I think that spread the divinity angle to followers...

    7. What do Muslims believe about the death of innocent children?
    Great reward in the next life... same for any who have suffering in this life I think.

    8. What is the real doctrine behind the 72 virgins and how do you qualify to get them?
    Ha! No idea.

    9. What is the Islamic rule on Polygamy?
    Think it's based on olden times when men were more often killed in wars, etc. So, women would be widows and this was a solution to that, they would have home/food/cared for/etc.

    10. Once you achieve paradise, then what?
    Another good question... for any religion. I would suppose that is 'it'.




    As a non-Muslim - these are my best answers (gleaned from arguing with someone who is Muslim a few years ago).

    You are looking for rationalizations for the actions of religious people?

    good luck
