"Have you not considered those who consider themselves purified?!  Nay,
Allah purifies whom He wills." [Surah al-Nisa']Please, Farhan, read my posts
with care, and try to absorb the facts I am presenting.  I am finding myself
having to repeat myself in answering your questions.

If that is the case, then:1- for the verse of the man who passed by a ruined
town :
    a) the Qur'an tells us clearly that Allah caused him to die for 100
years, and then raised him up.  That verse was revealed about 1400 years
ago, and even if had just recently occurred at that time, the world would
have ended by now (in fact, it would have ended well over a millenium ago!),
according to your interpretation!
    b) if his restoration to life is on the Day of Judgement, then what is
the significance of him being made a sign for mankind (as the Qur'an clearly
states)?  Rather, this fortifies that this was an unusual occurrence, such
that his being brought back to life after 100 years of death was a sign to
2 - For the verses about those thousands whom Allah caused to die, and then
raised up :
    a) The Qur'an uses the past tense for this occurrence (as for that of
the man who passed by the town), and furthermore couples it with 'Have you
not considered/seen ....', which indicates that it is something which
already happened.
    b) If it is merely the resurrection on Judgment Day, then why should
these people in particular be singled out?  What would be the significance
of mentioning that they, specifically will be resurrected, when we know that
in fact all people will be resurrected?

I have already addressed these objections in earlier email(s).  If we are to
have fruitful discussion, it is essential to take note of and absorb the
information which has preceded, otherwise we will never progress in the
discussion, nor cover new ground.

Although I am presenting only clear evidence, without personal opinions, I
am mystified as to why you are so much against explanations.  If you think
you are correct, then you should be able to reply to any explanations I
give, and to point out the flaws.  If, on the other hand, you are genuinely
mistaken (without being aware of it) then a convincing explanation, which is
firmly based on the Qur'an and Sunnah, is the means to remove your
misunderstandings.  Islam does not call for blind faith.  Rather, one should
take the truth wherever he finds it, and from whomever he hears it.

And Allah is the granter of success.
