Humanity in Bible, Vedas and Quraan

Analyze all Holy Books instead of People to find the True Religion of God
Generally people learn from their
parents and society or sect and believes that what he/she is doing is
right. Because of these problems, he/she is so rigid and never thinks
to change himself/herself although his/her thoughts could be totally
wrong and others may be right. Let us analyze the Bible, the Vedas and
the Quraan to find the True Humanity to save the world from another
Massacre or Holocaust etc.
Some Wicked (EVIL) people may fool others by any means, including
science fiction, and sell their arms or capture their treasures, wealth
etc. Those who are suffering the most may be innocents as well as fools
and have no power to defend themselves.
True Messengers, True Holy Books and True Scriptures are a signs of True Love of God:
And every nation had a messenger; so when their messenger came, the matter was decided between them with justice and they shall not be dealt with unjustly. [Al_Quraan_010.047]
And certainly We raised in every nation a messenger saying: Serve Allah and shun the Shaitan. So there were some of them whom Allah guided and there were others against whom error was due; therefore travel in the land, then see what was the end of the rejecters. [Al_Quraan_016.036]
When they are told to follow the (Revelation) that has sent down, they say: nay, we shall follow the ways that we found our fathers (following). What if it is Satan beckoning them to the Penalty of the (Blazing) Fire? [Al_Quraan_031.021]
Some People Do Massacre in the name of Peace:
And when it is said to them, Do not make mischief in the land, they say: We are but Peace-Makers. Now surely they themselves are the Mischief Makers, but they do not perceive. [Al_Quraan_002.011-012]
ZERO Tolerance for any kind of Abuse (Bullying; Physical, Mental or Verbal) to Spread Love among the global people:
O you who believe! let not (one) people LAUGH (Bullying, Put Downs, Teasing) at (another) people perchance they may be better than they, nor let women (laugh) at (other) women, perchance they may be better than they; and do not find fault with your own people nor call one another by nicknames; EVIL is a bad name after faith, and whoever does not turn, these it is that are the unjust. [Al_Quraan_049.011]
Think again, why are people fighting all over the world in the name of religion and sects, and forcing others to follow what they believe is right? These people might be the ones who need to change their attitudes and beliefs. Let us find out which of the claimed Holy Books of God has any teaching about Global Family, Forgiveness, and NO Compulsion in Religion or Faith type of preaching. If any claimed Holy Book fails to do so then people need to change themselves and find another claimed Holy Book and if none of these claimed Holy Books can answer for Humanity, then the people should work together to find the TRUE PEACE in the Global World. Remember:If your claimed Holy Book does not fullfil the criteria, it does not mean that all other claimed Holy Books are wrong and religion is wrong. Also if two religions are fighting, it does not mean both are wrong, perhaps the true one is trying to defend itself from other evils.
Humanity in the Vedas (Hindu's Holy Scripture):
Let us analyze if the Vedas can prove that it can save the Global World through True Love with Humanity and through the teaching of the concept of Global Family, Forgiveness, and NO Compulsion in Religion or Faith. The following verses from the Vedas are heart breaking and fail to do so. Around five (5) billion people of the World are in Great Danger from Hindus due to eating Beef (Cow):
Kill the killer of the cow with the bullet of lead.
Punish the killer of the cow and the man.
Those who kill the ‘Aghanya’, the cow which is not to be killed according to the Vedic edicts, their heads should be chopped off.
Award death sentence to the killer of the cow.
Humanity in the Bible:
Let us analyze if the Bible can prove that it can save the Global World through True Love with Humanity and through the teaching of the concept of Global Family, Forgiveness, and NO Compulsion in Religion or Faith. The following verses from the Bible are heart breaking and fail to do so. Around five (5) billion people of the World are in Great Danger from Christians due to not following their religion:
But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.
Whoever rebels against your command and does not heed your words, in all that you command him, shall be PUT TO DEATH.
And they UTTERLY DESTROYED all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and donkey, with the edge of the sword.
And they BURNED THE CITY with fire, and all that was therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD.
So the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and killed them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, ------.
Unless Christians can prove that in
their claimed Holy Book, there is some word to save the Global World
without forcing others to change their religion or faith, they should
leave their religion and look for some other claimed Holy Book.
Humanity in the Quraan:
Let us analyze if the Quraan can prove that it can save the Global World through True Love with Humanity and through the teaching of the concept of Global Family, Forgiveness, and NO Compulsion in Religion or Faith. The following verse from the Quraan are heart warming and are able to do so. So the Quraan is the only claimed Holy Book for which we can say the Real Saviour of the Global World, with True Love of God, without forcing any one regardless of religion or race etc.:
The World is shrinking and becoming a Global Family. I found this as a KEY point in cooling down the mind of others, so always remember and keep reminding, that we are the children of Adam and Eve and we are Cousin Brothers and Cousin Sisters and we are a Global Family.
O people! be careful of (your duty to) your Lord, Who created you from a single being and created its mate of the same (kind) and spread from these two, many men and women; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship; surely Allah ever watches over you. [Al_Quraan_004:001]
(All) people are a single nation; so Allah raised prophets as bearers of good news and as warners, and He revealed with them the Book with truth, that it might judge between people in that in which they differed; and none but the people of the book who were given it differed about it after clear arguments had come to them, revolting among themselves; so Allah has guided by His will those who believe to the truth about which they differed and Allah guides whom He pleases to the right path. (Al_Quraan_002.213)
No Force in Religion or Faith:
Let there be NO compulsion in Religion (Believe) : Truth stands out clear from error. [Al_Quraan_002:256]
Unto you your religion (Believe), and unto me my Religion (Believe). [Al_Quraan_109:006]
Saving a Single Life is Like Saving the Whole World: Muslims should be Doctors, Nurses, Fire Fighters, and Police and Security Personals etc.:
Saving a Life is like Saving the Whole World. [Ref. Al_Quraan_005.032]
Friendship with Christian an example of Christian-Muslim-Network:
... You will certainly find the nearest in friendship to those who believe (to be) those who say: We are Christians; this is because there are Priests and Monks among them and because they do not behave proudly. And when they hear what has been revealed to the messenger you will see their eyes overflowing with tears on account of the truth that they recognize; they say: Our Lord! we believe, so write us down with the witnesses (of truth). [Al_Quraan_005.082-083]
And not alike are the good and the evil. Repel (evil) with what is best, when lo! he between whom and you was enmity would be as if he were a warm friend. [Al_Quraan_041.034]
Marriage with the People of the Book an example of People_of_the_book-Muslim-Network:
This day are (all) good things made lawful for you. The food of those who have received the Scripture is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them. And so are the virtuous women of the believers and the virtuous women of those who received the Scripture before you (lawful for you) when ye give them their marriage portions and live with them in honor, not in fornication, nor taking them as secret concubines. Whoso denieth the faith, his work is vain and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter. [Al_Quraan_005.005]
Forgiveness: Muslim Always asks for forgiveness from Allah:
If any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amend (his conduct), lo! He is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. [Al_Quraan_006.054]
And You shall avoid open and secret sin; surely those who earn sin shall be recompensed with what they earned. [Al_Quraan_006.120]
If you avoid the great sins which you are forbidden, We will do away with your small sins and cause you to enter an honorable place of entering. [Al_Quraan_004.031]
Are they waiting until the Hour (Day of Judgment) comes to them suddenly? All the signs thereof have already come. Once the Hour comes to them, how will they benefit from their message? [Al_Quraan_047.018]
O you who believe! turn to Allah a sincere turning; maybe your Lord will remove from you your evil and cause you to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, on the day on which Allah will not abase the Prophet and those who believe with him; their light shall run on before them and on their right hands; they shall say: Our Lord! make perfect for us our light, and grant us protection, surely Thou hast power over all things. [Al_Quraan_066.008]
These verses clearly proves that the Quraan is the only claimed Holy Book that can save the Global World through True Love with Humanity and through the teaching of the concept of Global Family, Forgiveness, and NO Compulsion in Religion or Faith.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sin: Any act a person does against what Allah (God) has mentioned in the Quraan is a sin.
Adam and Eve's Sin:
And We said: O
Adam! Dwell you and your wife in the garden and eat from it a plenteous
(food) wherever you wish and do not approach this tree, for then you
will be of the unjust.
But the Shaitan (Devil) made them BOTH fall from it, and caused them to depart from that (state) in which they were; and We said: Get forth, some of you being the enemies of others, and there is for you in the earth an abode and a provision for a time. (Al_Quraan_002.036)
Allah Forgave Adam and Eve:
Then Adam received (some) words from his Lord, so He turned to him mercifully; surely He is Oft-returning (to mercy), the Merciful. (Al_Quraan_002.037)
And He it is Who accepts repentance from His servants and forgives sins and He knows what you do; (Al_Quraan_042.025)
of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amend (his
lo! He is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. (Al_Quraan_006.054)
(Asked Allah to forgive you and never ever think to do the sin again, otherwise it will be like a joke with Allah)
(Friends of Allah):
Now surely the friends of Allah (Believers) -- they shall have no fear nor shall they grieve. (Al_Quraan_010.062)
Those who believe and guarded (against evil): (Al_Quraan_010.063)
They shall have good news in this world's life and in the hereafter; there is no changing the words of Allah; that is the mighty achievement. (Al_Quraan_010.064)
And every nation had a messenger; so when their messenger came, the matter was decided between them with justice and they shall not be dealt with unjustly. (Al_Quraan_010.047)
And certainly We raised in every nation a messenger saying: Serve Allah and shun the Shaitan. So there were some of them whom Allah guided and there were others against whom error was due; therefore travel in the land, then see what was the end of the rejecters. (Al_Quraan_016.036)
Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of the prophets; and Allah is cognizant of all things. (Al_Quraan_033.040)
of all Prophecies and
End of all Holy Books or Booklets:
Forbidden to you is that which dies of itself, and blood, and flesh of swine, and that on which any other name than that of Allah has been invoked, and the strangled (animal) and that beaten to death, and that killed by a fall and that killed by being smitten with the horn, and that which wild beasts have eaten, except what you slaughter, and what is sacrificed on stones set up (for idols) and that you divide by the arrows; that is a transgression. This day have those who disbelieve despaired of your religion, so fear them not, and fear Me. This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favor on you and chosen for you Islam as a religion; but whoever is compelled by hunger, not inclining willfully to sin, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (Al_Quraan_005.003)
Surely We, even We, revealed the Reminder (the Quraan), and We verily are it’s Guardian (Al_Quraan_015:009).
Will they not then consider the Quraan with care? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much discrepancy (Al_Quraan_004:082).
(Here God challenges people to find an error in the Quraan. If it contains errors then it cannot be from God. If, on the other hand, it had been the production of a human being it would definitely contain errors. A human writer 1400 years ago would have written on the basis of the level of knowledge of his or her day. And many of those ideas would turn out to be false later as humankind learns more, especially in the field of science. But the Quraan is remarkably free from error.)
Let there be NO compulsion in Religion (Believe) : Truth stands out clear from error (Al-Quraan_002:256)
