Is it permissible to ask about the religion books?

People are afraid to ask in religion , sometimes their questions have no available answers in the mind of those asked , so they are saying don’t ask, religion should be accepted as such without asking questions

In the quran there is a verse “Ask not questions about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble” the table chapter (Surat Al-Ma'idah') 101

That became a doctrine, so man shouldn’t ask to relieve his mind from troubles
There is an understanding for some quran verses that one shouldn’t ask, as whoever asks will put himself in troubles

There was an article in Al-Ahram newspaper on Safar 28, 1423 AH corresponding to may 11, 2002 G, edition number 42159 ,by the writer Mr. Ahmed Ragab the editor of Sandouk Al-Donia (the world box) under the title :”good proposal “ he wrote about a letter came to him from the counselor; Jamal Al-Din Mahmoud the ex- general secretary of the high counsel of Islamic affairs and ex deputy chief of countermand court he said: in the convention of Islamic research, organized by the noble Al-Azhar under the title:” that’s Islam” it was held on April 16 -18 2002 G; Sheikh Abdul Moa'z Abdul jabar, one of the proselytisers having experience made a strong speech in front of the conference, he proposed to judge the texts of the holy books including the quran, as regards the included legislations concerning issues as violence, terrorism, woman rights, freedom , justice , forgiveness and dealing with those in other religions

So Sheikh Abdul Moa'z Abdul jabar had reached a further dimension, he reached to judge the texts of the holy books

We are neither judging books, nor condemning books but we are just reading ,asking questions and looking for answers

We are reading the Islamic books and exegesis and proposing questions looking for someone to explain to us with sound logic accepted by the sane minds

The follower of any religion should study all religions and choose the right way and he will be responsible for his choice

The Holy Bible said:” I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore, choose life, that you may live” Deuteronomy 30:19

God put for us choices, and man has to study and choose and he should decide and will be judged for his choice

But if man doesn’t ask or read and he doesn’t care, he will be like the ostrich that hides her head in the sand when she faces a danger

The danger for that for man is what will be his destiny, his eternal life

The student is thinking well before making his choice for the specialty he will choose that’s suitable for him, there is a responsibility for the choice

The Holy Bible said:” There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end of it is the ways of death” Proverb 14:12

God gave man the privilege of mind to think and look for his salvation

The Holy Bible said:” For what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? “Mark 8:36

“and there is salvation in no other One, for neither is there any other name under Heaven having been given among men by which we must be saved” Acts 4:12

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16

Man should ask himself what I should do to reach God and to get the salvation.
He should ask, and study to reach the true way leading to the eternal life

The Christ said:" You search the Scriptures carefully because you suppose that in them you have eternal life. Yet they testify about me"

If the Muslim studies the quran and what was written within it about the Christ; his life preaching and miracles, no man in the whole existence has such characters

Tell him: lord I am astray, show me the right way, and God will respond to you as he said:
” Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Man should ask, search and know well where he is going. And he shouldn’t stick to things he is doubtful about its veracity, ask and surely God will reveal to you
