This is interesting. The preferred use of the right hand over the left hand is more to do with rest room procedure than any other reasons.
In Indonesia, a small bowl of water and ones left hand is the way "things" get cleaned. Toilet paper is not a highly sought after commode-ity, regardless of ones religious preference. Left-handed children are "encouraged" to use their right hand. Eating is done with the right hand (at least with the Batak where most people do not use utensils).
The same is true in most countries where "oriental" customs prevail.

Do Muslims think Christians are going to Hell since Christians think Jesus was divine?

Koran 5:71-75; 19:30-38

Those two verses sure seem to say that is the case...

Muslims believe that only Muslims will go to paradise. Christians believe only Christians will go to heaven.

Each believes they have the "truth" and you need to believe the "truth" to attain heaven/paradise.

Muslims believe that islam and the Qur'an is the correction of what came before and so has the truth. The Qur'an is the last book and Muhammad is the seal of the prophethood and Islam has the truth.

Well I see a lot of questions about Islam but I don't see any answers from the individual who originally started this thread. Maybe the questions are a little overwhelming and this person can't answer them. I think it's a little strange that an individual starts a thread about a subject and invites questions but has not answered any of those questions.... what say you Khaled Ahmed ? Can you answer the questions?

I have an honest question about Islam:


Why is it so terrible to make a picture of Mohammed, even a respectful one?

No one knows what Mohammed looked like, so anything presented is just a guess... does that have something to do with it?

Why do some of us throw the word "cult" into every damn religion we don't like?

A 900 year old religion with a billion followers is definitely NOT a cult anymore, even if it started as one way back in Mohammed's time.

He is smart of appearance, with balanced features, deep black eyes, and long eyelashes.

His voice is not coarse.

He has a long neck, a full rounded beard, and thick eyebrows that meet each other.

When he is silent, he is stately and composed, and when he speaks, his appearance is impressive.

“He is the most beautiful and striking man from a distance and the best and most beautiful from close up.

He is well spoken, clear in what he says, saying neither too much nor too little, his words flowing forth like a perfect string of pearls.

“He is neither too tall nor overly short, a stately man in the company of two other stately men (one of them was Abu Bakr RA), and he is the most prominent among them and the most well-respected.

“He has companions who surround him. If he speaks, they listen to him, and if he commands, they hasten to fulfill his command.

He is well served and attended, though he is neither stern nor argumentative.”
