Every other religion I've perused do not seem to make any sense for me.

How/why did Islam make more sense to you than any other religion you'd looked at?

According to this, you accept as true what is revealed in Old Testament (to Moses and before) and New Testament (to Jesus). Then why don't you accept Gospels?

ummm.... i dont want to start (continue) an argument. i think he meant specific questions about the islam and not questions that are menat to try and disproof his belief. i think its obvious that no one can tell how his belief is absolutely right.

sorry i have no questions though XP

1) Why do you think that Islam is true? What kind of evidence do you have?
2) What do you think about Sharia law?
3) What do you think about passages in the Quran that describe Allah as cruel? For example:

2:6-7
As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom.

3:177
Those who purchase disbelief at the price of faith harm Allah not at all, but theirs will be a painful doom.

4)What do you think about fighting against infidels (respectively infidels have to pay the jizya)?

9:29
Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.

Sahih Muslim, Book 19, Number 4294:
When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. Then invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of Muhairs and inform them that, if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the Muhajirs. If they refuse to migrate, tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muilims and will be subjected to the Commands of Allah like other Muslims, but they will not get any share from the spoils of war or Fai' except when they actually fight with the Muslims (against the disbelievers). If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them.

First of all people, as thebluerabbit said, the questions would be about Islam, and not about my believe. But I will answer your questions.

How/why did Islam make more sense to you than any other religion you'd looked at?

First of all, I believe that there is a Creator. And that there is just one Creator. Abrahamic Religions are the most logical ones, why would so many people believe in it if it wasn't? So it was Judaism, Christianity or Islam. The ideas in Judaism were different than how a Creator would "rule". The idea is like "the Jews are humans and the non-Jews are animals".

About Christianity... Christianity is actually... you know... just different. What I don't understand about Christianity is actually the  most about the trinity. I didn't get any, "good" answer about the trinity.

And at last Islam. Islam is a bit different than Christianity and Judaism. Why? Because the Message is simple;

Proclaim, "He is the One and only GOD. "The Absolute GOD. "Never did He beget. Nor was He begotten. "None equals Him."(Qur'an 112:1-4)

And there is no error in Islam. Not even one. Many "miracles" etc. Things that actually wouldn't be known in that time etc. The Qur'an explains for me everthing. The reason I'm here, the reason I'm being Created and more.

According to this, you accept as true what is revealed in Old Testament (to Moses and before) and New Testament (to Jesus). Then why don't you accept Gospels?

What do you mean with, the Gospels? The life of Jesus(pbuh), or everything written in the Gospels?

1) Why do you think that Islam is true? What kind of evidence do you have?
2) What do you think about Sharia law?
3) What do you think about passages in the Quran that describe Allah as cruel?
4)What do you think about fighting against infidels (respectively infidels have to pay the jizya)?

1) Already answered
2) What do you think I need to "think" about Sharia Law. The Sharia Law in Iran, Iraq or the Sharia Law in Indonesia and Malaysia?
3) I don't see any "cruel" passage. Only warnings if you don't believe. Think about it as a school, because it's the best example I can give. Make your homework that's it. If you do, you will pas, if you don't... you won't. Simple as that.
4) I'll answer this later.

Greetings
