"" Say `If you love ALLAH, follow me; then will ALLAH love you and forgive you your sins.' And ALLAH is Most Forgiving and Merciful. 3:31""

Muslims highly praise, obey and fear Almighty Allah, "" There is none in the heavens and the earth but he shall come to the Gracious God as a bondsman. 19: 93 "". When Allah created us, he gave us respect, pride, dignity, and most important, equality. Allah also set certain rules and boundaries for us to observe, and implement, since he knows more about us than we know about ourselves.

Allah has forbidden us from: Killing each other, Stealing, Raping, Lying, Cheating, etc., since such deeds can definitely destroy any community. Just look around you, and you’ll see what I mean. On the other hand, Allah has ordered us to be: Thankful, Clean, Truthful, Patient, and to be good at all times.

Our relationship with Allah is much different from Christians relationship to their claimed God. Allah’s love to the human being in general, can be seen and noticed in many, many different ways:

* Because Allah loves us, He sends clouds, filled with rain , so the soil can grow plants, and trees. "" `HE will send down rain for you in abundance, 71:11 ""

* Because Allah loves us, He made animals work for us and aid us in our daily life, ""Do they not see that, among the things which Our hands have wrought, WE have created for them cattle of which they are masters ? . And WE have subjected the same to them, so that some of them they use for riding, and of the flesh of some they eat. 36:72-72 ""

* Because Allah loves us, He made us all equal regardless of color, race, language, etc... "" O mankind, WE have created you from a male and a female; And WE have made you tribes and sub-tribes that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable among you, in the sight of ALLAH, is he who is the most righteous among you. Surely, ALLAH is All-Knowing, All-Aware. 49:13 ""

* Because Allah loves us. He helped us lead our way in this life and on Planet Earth, "" And remember the day when WE will raise up in every people a witness against them from among themselves, and WE will bring thee as a witness against all of them. And WE have sent down to thee the Book to explain everything and a guidance and a mercy and glad tidings to those who submit to ALLAH. 16:89 ""

* Because Allah loves us, He promised us his forgiveness and mercy, and Heaves the size of the skies and earth. "" By degrees of excellence bestowed by HIM, and by special forgiveness and mercy. And ALLAH is Most Forgiving, Merciful. 4:96 ""

* Because Allah loves us, He sent his Messenger Mohammad (PBUH) to lead us, and show us the right path, to Almighty Allah. “" HE is Who has sent HIS Messenger with guidance and the true Religion, That HE may cause it to prevail over all other religions. And sufficient is ALLAH as a Witness. 48:28 "”

Christians regard God as a human being, and they expect the same humanely feedback from him. They believe that God talks to them. Allah said in the Holy Qur'an: "" And they do not make a just estimate of the attributes of ALLAH,.......6:91 "" . They want to deal with God as they deal with each other. They have this false image that God "their Father", is an old man whose sitting on a throne up in heaven, and is watching them. Christians define and extend their love to God, as the same love to one another, the humanely way.

Now, going back to the question , why Allah doesn’t like bad deeds? Well! Lets look at some scenarios, and ask our selves these questions:

1) Do you like somebody kidnapping your 5 year old daughter, and then rapping and killing her?

2) Do you like somebody breaking into your house, raping your wife, robbing your personal possessions?

3) Do you like somebody suing you for false accusations, and then bribing the court officials so he can win millions of dollars in false punitive damages?

By the way, these are actual events that has flooded the news media lately. Now, does it make sense to us why Allah does not love such heinous deeds. Well! it makes sense to all Muslims, and that’s why we praise Allah for his fairness, and justice, since we lack both on Earth.

Christians believe that whatever sins you commit in this life, and through Jesus, God will disregard them sins, no matter what they are, and no matter how bad they are. Let’s use an example here: A Robber breaks into a family home, rape the little girl, shoots the mother, steals all family life savings and treasured things, and sets the house on fire to hide his outrageous criminal act. According to Christianity, if this person seeks Jesus, then he shouldn’t worry about a thing, and he will enter Heaven.

In Islam, Allah might forgive whatever you owe him, but He will not forgive whatever you owe other people, that’s up to them wether to forgive you or not, and that’s what the Judgment Day is all about. Allah said in the Holy Qur’an: "" And WE shall set up just balances on the Day of Resurrection, so that no soul will be wronged in the least. And even if it be the weight of a grain of mustard seed, WE would bring it forth. And sufficient are WE as reckoners. 21:47 ""

In conclusion, Allah loves the people who loves one another. Allah loves us, the Muslims, because we believe in his Oneness and Greatness, and that we Kneel down and prostrate only to him , and no one else. We love him because he is the One and the Only God there is, we love him because he is the Fair, the Merciful that he will grant us his Mercy, and will reward us his Heavens..........
