"But speak to him mildly; perchance he may take warning or fear (Allah)."

They (Moses and Aaron) said: "Our Lord! We fear lest he hasten with insolence against us, or lest he transgress all bounds."

He said: "Fear not: for I am with you: I hear and see (everything).

"So go ye both to him, and say, 'Verily we are messengers sent by thy Lord: Send forth, therefore, the Children of Israel with us, and afflict them not: with a Sign, indeed, have we come from thy Lord! and peace to all who follow guidance!

"'Verily it has been revealed to us that the Penalty (awaits) those who reject and turn away.'"

http://quran.com/20

26:10,11

Behold, thy Lord called Moses: "Go to the people of iniquity,-

"The people of the Pharaoh: will they not fear Allah?"

http://quran.com/26


Unless you are going to claim that Pharaoh was Jewish and so were his people, it is pretty obvious that according to the Quran, God sent Moses to the Egyptians as well as to the Israelites.

So you get your information from anti-Islamic sites?
This is their favourite topic, which nobody seems to understand.
Let me explain it again.
Prophet Musa (Alayhi Salaam) an Israelite was sent to Pharoah an Egyptian who was oppressing his people the Israelites. He was sent to pharoah to free his people and not as their Prophet. If God wanted to send a Prophet to the Egyptians then he would have chosen an Egyptian. Get it?
By the way, this is my last 'debate' with you as you don't have any knowledge nor taqwa. I've wasted my time already going back and forth debating with somebody who is like cattle, deaf, dumb and blind.
Adios Amigo!

Maybe not, but my conjectures are based on some ideas found in modern Christian theodicy.
God has the right to remain silent. For His advocates, however, each resigned shrug is a missed opportunity to win new converts.

Ad hominem again?

You are funny.  TG is so not anti-Islamic.

Peace Abu.

Moses was a prophet. He was sent to the Pharaoh to tell him to let the Israelites go and to invite him to worship God. This is what the other prophets did to their people.

He was sent to Pharaoh and his people as well as to the Israelite people. Some of the Pharaoh's magicians repented and he killed them. They died because they accepted the message of God that Moses was sent to them to bring.

Clearly the Quran teaches that God sent the prophet Moses to both the Egyptian leaders and to the Israelite people. He told both peoples to turn to God and called them on their sins.

Your statement

"
If God wanted to send a Prophet to the Egyptians then he would have chosen an Egyptian."

is not true, because according to your own faith, He sent them a Jew.

In other words, you are unable to prove your assertions or disprove mine, so you are going to insult me and run away.

Feel free to do that. I will keep praying for you my friend. God loves you and perhaps one day you will come to Him.

You are right. I am scared and I want to run as far away from your st**idity as possible. So you think that God should have sent Prophet Musa (Alayhi Salaam) to Emperor Ming in China? Surely that would have been pointless as the Children of Israel were in bondage in Egypt! Read the Holy Qur'an fully and then come back and debate.

Also see the thread 'Debating with Christians'.

If saying that makes you feel more competent, go ahead...

That's funny, because earlier you just wrote this is our 'last debate' and that I'm 'deaf, blind and dumb' anyways.

I don't think that according to the Quran God should have sent Moses to Emperor Ming. He did though send him to the Pharaoh, to call him to repentance and to let the Israelites go. It's there in the text.

You can deny it all you want. But this is what your holy book says.

Moses was a Prophet. God sent him to Pharaoh and his people and told them to stop sinning and come to God, and to also let the people of Israel go. They refused. Moses took his people and left Egypt. The pursuing Egyptians were drowned. He tried to take his people to the Holy Land but they would not enter because they were afraid to fight the people there. So they went into the desert. They worshiped a golden calf and committed other sins. God gave Moses the Torah.

These are only some things that the Quran teaches about Moses.

I saw it. I feel the same way about some non-Christians who debate Christianity.

I have been able to refute your rebuttals, and so you get mad and say this will be our last debate and call me st**id.

Fine. Say whatever you want to say.

I will keep being a witness to God regardless of what you think or don't think.

Caringheart, according to the Sharia challenging Islam is a crime.

Challenging Christianity used to be a crime, but the Inquisition ended centuries ago. Because Christians are used to challenges and critical thinking and debate we sent people to the moon and invented web browsers and the software Islamicity runs on.

Most Christians are secure in their faith, so we can also handle insults. Yet insults in Islam mean the death penalty. Many Muslims are not yet secure in their faith. They are outraged when it comes to questioning their faith.

Many Muslims would choose to leave Islam, but by making apostacy a crime that requires the death penalty, these Muslims are trapped. They have to pretend to be Muslims and the Ummah proudly proclaims that Islam is the fastest growing religion. What an absurd miscalculation.

Why do progressive Muslims not organize demonstrations against the death penalty for apostacy. Why does the silent majority who want reform remain silent?
