I think you should take time to digest all this before you advance into other questions. Or we will simply be jumping to and fro and confusing everyone including ourselves. Like Ace likes to say, yes it was a huge 'wall of text' - but  it was difficult to give you a better picture in just a 'brick of text'.

Take your time. No hurries.

Aye, the one thing I've grasped for a habit after joining here is to fire the Wall-Of-Text-lasers Tongue Most of the points are pretty explanatory I guess.

I suggest we wait till he goes through our last few posts. . . . I am sure there must be some points he may want to discuss further. Then we can move on...Smile

I am interested in answering your question. But this discussion is going on for quite long. So, I want you to give me current questions. Or let me known if your initial questions are as it is.

CHRYSALIS:
 
Here it comes, I'd like to know what the "oppresion" means here. Same question regarding "tumulut" if you wouldn't mind
 
"Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loves not transgressors. And slay them wherever you catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter... But if they cease, God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful... If they cease, let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression" (2:190-193).
