First question: is sin, the disobeying of God, an abomination or other like thing in the Muslim faith? Second question: is there a belief that Man is inherently a sinner, from birth, or is there a belief that Man becomes a sinner once he commits his first sin against God? Third question: if God sees people as sinners (either from conception or through their actions), how can He, as a just and righteous God, allow these sinners to go unpunished? Fourth question: I understand that Ramadan is the holiest month of the Muslim year. What I do not understand is how, say, charity during Ramadan is somehow better than charity during the month before. Shouldn't all good deeds be on an equal plane, so to speak?
