Jalal Abualrub Debates Ali Sina
My name is jalal abualrub…i am currently writing a book on muhammad, pease be upon him, titled: the prophet of mercy…may be you should read the two chapters of it available at: (www.madinahstore.com)…i heard that you challenge muslims to debate you, but from looking at your wesbite i did not see anything original other than the usual stuff that some non-muslims dwell on without knowledge…is there a real reason for you leaving islam?…do you have any original evidence that made you leave islam?
Dear Jalal Abualrub
Thank you for writing. To be precise I do not challenge Muslims to “debate” with me. I am actually very busy for debates. I challenge Muslims to prove my charges against Muhammad and Islam wrong. You can do that with one letter alone. If your arguments are convincing, there would be no rebuttals from my side and that would be the end of the debate. I will immediately agree and withdraw the charge that is refuted.
I also do not claim originality. In fact these questions are old. They are as old as Islam. These are the same questions the freethinkers of Mecca , such as Abul Hakam and Abu Sofyan used to ask Muhammad. The reason I am repeating them is because they have never been answered. Muhammad killed one and bribed the other but never answered their questions. Just because these questions are old, they do not become invalid. On the contrary, because they have never been answered, they are very likely to be true. If Muslims could answer them, someone would have come with an answer in these 1400 years. Who knows, maybe that person is you.
Yes, there is a real reason for me to leave Islam and no that reason is not original. It is the very same reason that makes others leave Islam and reject it and that is:
a) Muhammad, by virtue of his conduct does not qualify to be a messenger of God and
b) The Quran contains too many absurdities to be considered a book of revelation from God.
|Thank you Sina for your email. First, I would like to say that my friend Nader A`hmad has just stated to me that he decently refuted your claims and offered this site as a reference (http://www.examinethetruth.com/Challenge_Sina.htm)…|
Yes I debated with Nadir Ahmed and you can find the full debate here: Mr. Ahmed has also published that debate partially.
As you can see, Nadir did not talk about the charges that I made against Muhammad and insisted we talked about some alleged miracles of the Quran. He promised after that he would respond to the charges. Well, he could not prove any of those so called miracles were miraculous. And as for disproving my claims against Muhammad, we never got to that part.
|I do not mean this in any way to hurt you, I am just conveying what my friend said. Any way, you truly do not need to answer me on this point at all, I just wanted to be honest with you as to what I have heard.|
Why should I get hurt?
|We both are busy, so why not occasionally engage each other in a question or comment from your side, then I offer my insight and response. I noticed that your email to me showed calmness, which I like in this kind of debate. So let us see if we can engage in a civil debate that will be of benefit, hopefully.|
Sure there is no hurry. I present one charge at a time and you can dispute it at your convenience. For this debate we adopt the format of the court. The charges are laid against the defendant Muhammad bin Abdullah, I act as the prosecutor on behalf of humanity (excluding the Muslims) and you as his attorney. The readers will be the jury.
We do not have to convince each other necessarily. We explain our positions respectively and leave it for the jury to decide.
If I am convinced that any of the charges are adequately contested, I will remove that charge. If a charge is convincingly contested and I obstinately decline to remove the charge, the jury will see through that insincerity and let them be my judge.
|As for me, I really do not like to boast about myself, but I guess that this may be helpful, so thank you again and let us talk a bit later.|
