God doesn't want a bunch of lemming followers, He desires us to submit to His will by choice. Just like, I don't want my husband to be with me because I went through this nightmare with him; I want him to be with me because he loves me. (Did that make sense? )

(I really enjoy these older threads!)

No offense meant, but I think you misunderstood what I posted. I'm not saying that we're all a bunch of blind followers...simply that, even if a person does not believe in God/Allah (SWT), their body still submits to Him in the way it functions according to His will. We still believe Allah (SWT) gave us free will to choose what we want to do/believe...but we have no control over how our blood flows, how our lungs expand, etc...that is all how Allah (SWT) has commanded it and is not under our control.

"Time as a measurement of love is eternal.
It extends beyond the borders of forever into the depths of infinity.
I love you this and much more."
