I have read the Koran and a lot of Hadiths, and even some Tafsir. But I still cannot believe that Muhammad was a prophet of God. I have even watched various YouTube videos where the so-called “scientific miracles” within the Koran are explained. But none of it is convincing.
In the Koran it says that Allah has purposefully sealed the hearts of the non-believers and will give them a great punishment in the hereafter:
As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe.
Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing and there is a covering over their eyes, and there is a great punishment for them.
But why has Allah sealed my heart in this way that I am blind to what others declare as obvious proof that the Koran is divine and Muhammad is a true prophet?
It does not seem fair to me that I should have to endure eternal torture in hell if it is Allah that has sealed my heart himself. It seems like he is not even giving me a chance. So why did he create me in the first place? It is as if he created me specifically to send me to hell, which does not seem like an all merciful god.
If someone could explain this that would be very helpful.
