    I may be mistaken, but doesn't the bible say something to the effect that all will be revealed? All that is asked will be revealed/answered?
    I believe more-so that latter than the former. God will answer our questions, but not show us things without demonstrating an interest.

    What would be the purpose of providing information to uninterested parties.

    Given time and experience it might be said people improve with age, however, are we not the same person as before? Wisdom accumulates over time, but the past and present exist as it is, although we influence the future, whatever is will always be.

    I'd say it is definitely along the lines of what many want to hear.

    Beyond good marketing practice and fulfilling the need to keep the majority of john q. public toeing the line.

    I have no clue as to its likelihood.

    Yep, me either. What questions will you ask God?

    Not something I am preparing for.

    I don't think anyone can prepare to meet God face to face...hmm If I had such a question by the time of my demise?

    I certainly don't believe I can fully prepare to "meet Allah face to face" and although I believe many truths about my life will be shown to me (I believe the experience of death itself will reveal much) I have no idea how much will be shown or known or if other things will come to light.

    At the moment of being in the direct Presence of Allah on the Day of Resurrection I think maybe we won't be able to ask any questions - in that moment at least. I'm not sure about it, but the following verse has made me think the time for questioning may be now ?

    But I have no real certainty about it or if that is the proper understanding & application of the verse.

    Qur'an 21:23 says "He is not to be questioned about what He does, but they will be questioned"

    Seems like a command. But they will be questioned presumably by Allah?

    I think I would have to ask where I could change my pants.

    These are the words of that most beautiful child of god, Jesus, and whoever pierces into the meaning of his words shall be granted eternal life:

    "For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered"

    He goes on to say:

    "Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops."

    Thats why we sing:

    "God will take care of you,
    Through every day, o'er all the way;
    Nothing you ask will be denied,
    God will take care of you"

    That is what is meant by:

    "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

    Thats his promise and our birthright. We are never abandoned. We are let in on the project of creation. We are creation--this is fact.

    "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

    In one's personal experience everything is revealed upon the moment we return into emptiness and union with all of creation. Thats why we call it the Field of Infinite Possibilites. Shock and awe is what most will encounter. Utter disbelief. Total bliss, for it is so majestic and so perfect...everything, everything, everything revealed, all knowledge transfered, total unity. The meaning of it ALL revealed in its most radiant and brilliant splendor. Praise the Lord !

    So, what do you agree with and what are your areas of disagreement?
