All of these other beliefs of what people believe to be "God", goes against the very idea of what God is. Islam is about as clear as can be on the definition of God and there is no complicated formula to try and understand Allah. All the prophets worshiped Allah. Whether or not a Jew, Christian, or Atheist believes it, makes no difference to the fact.

    You have perfectly demonstrated the problem .
    People define what a god is .
    People from cultures all over the globe , for 10,000 years ( at least) have created deities in an attempt to explain the universe and our place in it.

    Gods are a concept, an idea , they are created and developed by people,
    They are based on the things we do kit know our understand.

    Don’t know how the universe came to be ... create a god to explain it
    Don’t know how life began ... create a god to explain it
    Afraid of death , create a god that supplies an afterlife.

    Gods are a primitive attempt to explain the universe ... it would be much more intellectually honest to just say ... I don’t know .

    Then you can say what you believe ,
    You have your religious beliefs , just like Hindus have theirs , jews have theirs, Christians have theirs, the Norse had theirs.

    Do you agree it’s possible for large numbers of people to believe things that have no basis in reality , thus is especially true in relation to gods and religions ?

    IMHO

    There are only people that believe gods are real.

    Gods are an invention of the human imagination, we create gods in an attempt to explain the universe and our place in it.
    God is real and all theists believe that and the fact that most people on earth are and have always been theists is an indicator that belief in God is the natural belief of mankind; it is only this that makes sense of how this universe came about

    We differ in the definition of that God but this is not evidence against theism, but rather falls in line with what theists have been saying all along, that satan can make people deviate from true beliefs

    How many people believe something has no bearing on its truth.

    If it did , Hinduism would be true.

    I’m sure you would agree that the world is full of gods and religions that have totally come from the minds of men.

    It’s possible for billions of people to believe something that has no basis in reality, is true .

    The question is ... how could you be 100% sure that the god you believe is real ... is real.

    I don’t think you can ,, it’s just things you believe are true , it’s your religion , just like the Hindus or Christians have their religion ... you have yours .

    ?
    Absolutely. People have had their own beliefs for as long as we've existed. I also agree that a large number of people believing in something doesn't make it correct.

    In Sharh Saheeh Muslim, Al-Nawawi quoted al-Qadi ‘Iyad as saying concerning the meaning of this hadeeth:
    “Islam began among a few individuals, then it spread and prevailed, then it will reduce in numbers until there are only a few left, as it was in the beginning.”
    This isn't a numbers game afterall

    All religions begin with a single person or a small group of people , they either catch on and gain in popularity then the popularity wanes and the religion dies out .
    This is the case for every religion that has ever existed.

    Islam is the same as other religions in this regard

    When it said Islam prevailed .

    Muslims make up a small fractions of the people on this planet, and an even smaller fraction of the people that have existed.

    More people have lived and died , than has ever heard of Islam.

    In what sense does it mean it has prevailed ?

    Let's first define what is Islam? Islam is submission to the will of God.
    Now does Islam started 1400 years ago? Answer is NO, that's the misconception which many non-Muslims have. All prophets and all people who believed in these prophets before the coming of Prophet Muhammad PBUH are Muslims. Islam is as old as humanity.
    This the reason why Muslims believe in all prophets because they all came with the same message " Believe in ONE God-Allah."

    I already told you about that light of faith Allah puts in our hearts; the way it works is, a person can follow intellectual evidences and if he doesn't deny the overwhelming evidence then God puts that light in the heart which enables us to witness the spiritual realities just as if a person saw a ghost with his own eyes hence witnessing for himself that there is a spiritual world too. Sometimes this light can be bestowed by the concurrence of circumstance:

    Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazzali wrote, let me quote:

    "Whoever supposes that faith is realized through speculative theology, abstract proofs, or academic divisions is an innovator. On the contrary, faith is a light that God, the Sublime and Exalted, casts into the hearts of His servants with bounty and grace from His presence. Sometimes faith is evidenced internally and is impossible to express; sometimes, through a vision while asleep; other times, by witnessing the state of a pious man and recieving the emanation of his light as a result of his companionship and presence; and then there are times when faith comes by the concurrence of circumstance.

    Indeed, a Bedouin came to the Prophet denying and disavowing him. But when his eyes fell upon his radiant aspect - he saw in it the light of prophethood and exclaimed,
    "By God! This is not the face of a liar!" He then implored the Prophet to explain Islam to him and immediately embraced it."

    https://www.islamicity.org/forum/for...re-about-islam


    Also we experience the spiritual world on a daily basis with our worship; we experience the peace, succour, and happiness that comes with prayer and obeying Allah and we experience the harm that comes with sinning; how can this be if Islam is not true? How could this spirituality and the promise of Allah of metaphysical harm and benefits work? Because it's true

    I understand the social benefits of religion , that is true of the majority of religions , and is independent of wether they are true or not.

    If I saw a ghost ( I don’t believe ghosts are real) , then I might believe in ghosts or that I’m losing my mind , or that I’m mistaken.
    But gods are not something we can see , or at least I’ve not seen a god.

    As for faith
    There have been 1000s of religions , and the believers all had faith.
    If this demonstrates anything , it demonstrates that “faith is not a reliable path to truth”.

    You can justify any belief using faith

    Rather than look into Islam properly like read the Quran, study the seerah etc to see whether a God could have put clear signs in them for us to recognise it as Gods truth, you are just always finding excuses and dismissing all arguments

    Read the Book of Mormon,
    The truth was revealed to him by an angel of god.

    There you go again, more smart alec arguments (rolls eyes). What if God has shown me the Truth in such a way that it is same as witnessing it with your own eyes? (And God can do that right?), so then there'd be no need to look into other religions when I've found the Truth therefore know that all others are false.

    Now I bet you're going to say "but a Hindu will say the same thing', ignoring all other evidences I've given you of how no one else believes in their religion like Muslims do. The problem with you is, you ignore what we tell you and just carry on going round in circles with your 'excuses'

    If you can prove to me that a god has given you some truth , if you can prove to me that a god exists to give you some truth ... then we could go somewhere.

    Until you prove there is a god ... I have no reason to believe any claim you make about that god.

    The horse goes before the kart.

    “ no one else believes in their religion like Muslims do “
    That’s absurd , there are plenty of people just as convinced as you are that their gods are real.

    There have been people over the past 10,000 years convinced all manner of deities , spooks and spectres are real
    Real enough to die for it, or kill for it.

    Which demonstrates a point perfectly

    It’s possible for billions of people to be convinced of something that has no basis in reality ... this is especially true in regards to gods and religions.

    There is a very recognisable pattern , over the past 10,000 years.

    People invent a god , make a religion around it , create stories around it , build temples , worship , pray , believe prayers answered sing , ..... and the gods are complete fiction , no basis in reality.

    Is it possible that , your god and religion is the same as the 1000s of other people invented
