Ask questions in order to seek understanding. Do not ask questionsin order to create confusion and then you get yourself into more complications… 5:101-2 ‘All you who believe do not ask about things that if we disclose them to you you will be upset.” Don’t ask questions which are not relevant… And if you still continue that that habit of asking irrelevant questions to Prophet Mohammad, while the Revelation is still coming you will be exposed in a way you wouldn’t like.

Colorado Imam Warns Intellectual Thoughts Can Cause Muslims to leave Islam
Academics and Religious leaders are opining on the issue of Islam to the extent that it consumes a sizable percentage of society’s energy. Islam, whether through Islamic charitable organizations or Islamophobia commissions/task forces or Muslim terrorist deradicalization programs, is costing Western nations’ taxpayers billions of dollars.
This is a question that has no answer. Because it has no answer, is precisely why it keeps being asked. Is Islam is a religion of peace or war. It is like asking if water is good or bad. If you are in a desert, water is good. If you are drowning in a flood, water is bad. However, we could ask why & who allowed Islam to get a foothold in the West. We could ask if ISIS, Al-Qaida, Boko-Haram, Hizb ut-Tahrir are reasonable representatives of the TRUE Islam. Does ISIS justify their actions with Islamic doctrine? What do North American Islamic leaders/influencers say about the beheading of French teacher Samuel Patty? I have learned is that Imams and scholars teach that offensive war, sex slavery, female inferior status, child marriage, and the execution of gays, apostates and those who insult or criticize Islam is sanctioned by Islamic doctrine. It seems that, for the sake of diversity, tolerance & multiculturalism, certain questions should not be asked. It is written in the holy Quran “Ask not questions that if the answers were revealed it could cause you to doubt.”
