What you are saying is that Allah (SWT) has stoped caring???? He does
not want to guide us--Note we are divided into sects-- And yet we pray
at least 32 times a day Oh Allah guide us to the correct path in
Sura-Al Fatheha..... How Allah (swt) guides us is through prophethood:
and the Messiah: Al-Nabi is a wonderful source of guidance.... But as
Allah (SWT) states in the Qur'an: They are dumb deaf and Blind, they
see not, nor shall they see.....
 
Read my page to see the truth:
