C.S. Mead's problem was that Hindus knew nothing of Jesus while Bengali Muslims thought that they already knew everything important about him through the Qur'an: they hoped that "correct" acceptance would grant them admission into Heaven. But the New…

The Torah, Psalms and four Gospels are all God's word: all predict that the evildoers go to Hell and the pious to Heaven, and that Moses and Jesus worked miracles. The Mawlavis say that the Qur'an is beautifully styled but the Bengal-resident people…

Sins such as theft against people of property are like those committed against god. If the justly-jailed thief repents, could Muhammad act as his intercessor? That would be ruled out by the fact that Muhammad committed sins. Since the Qur'an says…
