Imam Mahdi will come with 313 generals, and 10,000 people under each general, which if you do the math is just over 3 million people. This is an obviously small minority. I don't get where you are getting the rest of your info about Christians being in the Imam's army. What I had always heard as a Muslim was that as soon as he comes, he will mass murder all non-believers (but first he'll ask them to convert, if they don't then he'll start slaughtering them). He will also kill every Muslim over the age of 20 who doesn't know properly the rules of Islam. This is what my dad told me when he wanted me to read the law books, I would love it if you could prove that this is false.
Again, this is what you have probably been told to believe. As kingpomba quoted before me,
And whoever inequitably seeks for himself as a religion other than Islam, then it will never be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter (he) will be among the losers. How does Allah guide a people who have disbelieved after their belief, and bore witness that the Messenger is true, and the supreme evidences came to them? And Allah does not guide the unjust people. Those will have their recompense in (that there will rest) on them the curse of Allah and of the Angels and of mankind all together, Eternally (abiding) therein. The torment will not be lightened for them, and they will not be respited. (3:85-88)
Emphasis on NOTHING other than Islam will be accepted. If there is some other verse somewhere else that says otherwise, then that is proof of self-contradiction in the Quran.
Exactly, its their choice and it should be their choice, just as you CHOOSE to wear Hijab. My problem is why it is an obligation. Do you not know what Allah will do to these women for CHOOSING not to wear Hijab? That's equivalent to saying "Hey, I heard your wallet might get stolen. Here, take this lucky rabbit's foot... or else I'll shoot you. In the leg. In a dark alleyway. And watch you bleed to death. But only because I love you."
lol, I'm talking about the Quran. The Quran mentions inanimate objects and animals talking, another thing most Islamic scholars will choose not to tell you about. The thing on facebook was just an example to show how blind religion makes you.
Till, when they reached the Valley of the Ants, an ant said: O ants! Enter your dwellings lest Solomon and his armies crush you, unperceiving. And (Solomon) smiled, laughing at her speech, and said: My Lord, ... (27:18-19)
Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, "Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion." They said, "We have come willingly." (41:11)
Indeed, we offered the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it and feared it; but man [undertook to] bear it. Indeed, he was unjust and ignorant. (33:72)
So not only do inanimate objects talk, they also have feelings. How adorable. All of my points are directly either from the Quran or otherwise well-known parts of Islam, which being an ex-Muslim I've heard many times myself, and I'm sure you have too. I'm not talking about anything hidden in some dark corners somewhere.
well at the time Imam Mahdi ATF comes out,, there wont be as much people as there r now,, so that soldiers would be alot,,
313 is an interesting number because not only would it be the number for Imam Mahdi ATF,, but it was for other prophets before him who had won battles with 313 soilders,, which include:
1) Talut the king of Israel,, from Prophet Samual,, (against goliath) they came towards hot dessert,, Allah told them that there test is to not drink from the water thats coming,, and only 313 people listened from 80.000,,
2) Rasulillah PBUH,, his first battle,, he asked who is ready to fight,, Magdad the companion said that he will follow him because he was ordered by Allah to love him,, the people with Rasullillah made up to 313 soliders,,
that day belonged to Imam Ali AS,, because 70 people were killed in the opposite side and 35 from the sword of Imam Ali AS,, and he was very young,,
Allah tells us not to kill the innocent,, WHY would he bring out a Imam that would kill randoms ?? that makes no sense,, thats y people of other religions will join his army,, because at that time the world will be filled with Injustice and tyranny,, the Imam will appear on earth so he can bring Justice and Equality,,
Everyone will be judged by their book when Imam Mahdi ATF comes out,, because Imam Ali AS used to judge everyone with their book as well,,
when ur trying to get info from the Quran u have to refer to the whole Surah,, because u have seriously just taken a quote from it,, read it again and then come back to me on what it means,,
every Ayah has a story to it,, watch those lectures that give an interpretation to Surahs,, like sayed ammar nakshawani,,
also not everything is to be taken literally,, for eg Allah,, it mentions in the Quran how he sits on a throne and he has hands and eyes etc,, but it doesnt mean he realy has those things,, how can God have human features,, u get what i mean,, u have to study the Quran in order to know the message behind it properly,,
and Wallah iv never heard any of the stuff ur mentioning now,, and im a born Muslim,, (actually every human is born muslim,, haha)
u still on think of Hijab as a physical thing,, its not only a physical thing,, dont u understand that,,
