    They have a more rational conception of god than Christianity. Or moreso than a lot of other religions
    It's incredibly atheistic in a way. Moreso than Judaism. Catholic mystics in the 13th century were basically saying the same shit than Muslim scholars were saying in the 8th century

      Anon theology has no application anywhere outside of religion. It doesn't matter if you have a better argument about how many angels can fit on a pinhead if angels don't exist. Next argument

      baby’s first dip into the pool of theology? Salafis are literally the embodiment of the atheist skydaddy meme, and the common muslim concept of life after death is extremely materialistic and full of hedonism.
      When you’re ready for real philosophy, look into Madhyamaka Buddhism or Vedanta. Both of which have superior metaphysics to the Abrahamic religions and are far superior to any devotional religion.

      It's basically neoplatonism with warrior asthetics

      No, it’s Aristotelianism dressed up in “warrior aesthetics”. Neoplatonism is actually a more sophisticated and thorough philosophy than Islam or Christian metaphysics precisely because both of those religions sucked off Aristotle so hard and became forever spiritually stunted.

      >Islam aligns with my preconceived notions of how the world should be so it must be true
      Lmao.

      Islam is the religion of the self-evident, offering a unique perspective on morality, metaphysics, and cosmology. I recommend reading the Quran to better understand the religion's core teachings.

      >Self-evident
      That there is a God is self-evident. Believing that some schizo pedophile who heard voices in a cave was really “talking with god” and was an infallible “prophet” is not warranted and in fact, absolutely batshit.

      >There are 10 different reading traditions with 20 sub-narrations adhered to today. They are different from one another.

      >But go back a little further, to al-Qabāqibī who dies 849 AH/1445 CE we have fourteen reading traditions, 4 of which have completely fallen out of use.

      >Go even further back to al-Huḏalī's al-Kāmil (he dies 465 AH/1072 CE), and he has 50 reading traditions, forty of which are no longer in active use. And of the ten the he has, there are countless sub-narrations that are no longer adhered to today.

      >This problem really only compounds the further you go back. If you include manuscripts from before Ibn Muǧāhid (d. 324/936), you will find countless readings that do not fit with any of the canonical ten and not even with any of al-Huḏalī's fifty... None of these traditions are in living use, many of them have wordings that are unique to them and no longer present in any of the recited forms of the Quran.

      >And of course, ultimately, the text of Uthman is a bottleneck for most of these traditions. Uthman commissioned his standard text about 20 years after the death of the prophet. We know for a fact that the companions of the prophet had version of the Quran that differed much, much more than the amount of variation that you find in Uthmanic text. Whole words and phrases replaced and added or reordered, in codices such as those of Ibn Masʿūd and ʾUbayy.

      >None of that survives. Is that preservation? I don't know.

      >While in some cases it might be possible to say for any one of these competing variants which is more plausible that the prophet actually said. Usually it is not. Due to the (semi-)oral nature of the Quran there is a legitimate possibility that in some of these junctures of variation the prophet actually taught both options... but it is simply impossible to prove with 100% certainty for any specific word, and therefore there is no guarantee that any of what survives today was the most original wording.

    Ultimately, your practice of Islam is between only you and Allah. rigorous self-accountability is superior to relying and submitting to the whims of another man (read Pope) or community. You can be a believer in any place in any circumstance, limited only by what Allah has permitted and enjoined for you

            Surah an-Naba [78], start from v21

            Indeed, Hell is lying in ambush
            [22] as a home for the transgressors,
            [23] where they will remain for ˹endless˺ ages.
            [24] There they will not taste any coolness or drink,
            [25] except boiling water and ˹oozing˺ pus—
            [26] a fitting reward.
            [27] For they never expected any reckoning,
            [28] and totally rejected Our signs.
            [29] And We have everything recorded precisely.
            [30] ˹So the deniers will be told,˺ “Taste ˹the punishment˺, for all you will get from Us is more torment.”

            The context shows the entire portion tells of Allah's punishment for the transgressors, not just any person. Its a representation of justice.

            "Theme and Subject Matter
            Its theme also is the same as of Surah Al-Mursalat, i. e. to affirm the Resurrection and Hereafter, and to warn the people of the consequences of acknowledging or disacknowledging it."

            Allah is the most merciful, except for those who transgress or disbelieve.

            As for those who repent, mend their ways, and let the truth be known, they are the ones to whom I will turn ˹in forgiveness˺, for I am the Accepter of Repentance, Most Merciful. [2:160]

            Repent, or enjoy the fire

            Are you extra moronic Abdul? Do you not understand how the two statements (that humans would always be less merciful than God, and that God will increase the punishment in Hell over time) clearly contradict each other? I give you 80 IQ points at best.

            You're the one that can't comprehend.

            The first verse is emphasizing man's nature as if he had the power of Allah's mercy. The second describes the guarantee of punishment for the transgressor. Comparing them is to compare a hypothetical of man's limited capacity with the parameters of Allah's justice in reality. These truncated and out of context comparisons are designed to mislead people like you, who are either don't care to investigate anything beyond your own selection bias (muh Islam bad) or too stupid to comprehend the verses as revealed.

            This is a blessed Book We have revealed. So follow it and be mindful ˹of Allah˺, so you may be shown mercy.

            You ˹pagans˺ can no longer say, “Scriptures were only revealed to two groups before us and we were unaware of their teachings.”

            Nor can you say, “If only the Scriptures had been revealed to us, we would have been better guided than they.” Now there has come to you from your Lord a clear proof1—a guide and mercy. Who then does more wrong than those who deny Allah’s revelations and turn away from them? We will reward those who turn away from Our revelations with a dreadful punishment for turning away.

    >Even if all the things contained in his law were fables in philosophy and errors in theology, even for those who do not possess the light of reason, the very manners (Islam) teaches are from a school of vicious bestialities. (Muhammad) did not prove his new sect with any motive, having neither supernatural miracles nor natural reasons, but solely the force of arms, violence, fictions, lies, and carnal license. It remains an impious, blasphemous, vicious cult, an innovention of the devil, and the direct way into the fires of hell. It does not even merit the name of being called a religion.”-St. Juan de Ribera (d.1611), Archbishop of Valencia, missionary to Spanish Muslims, and organizer of the Muslim expulsions of 1609 from Spain

        Yeah Ahmad's claim to being the Second Coming is a little goofy, but his theology seems neat. They're the only ones who actually believe in a strictly nonviolent jihad and not the pilpul you get out of all other Muslims about jihad merely being a "struggle"
