God is such a great entitie that people cannot fully understand Him. This is why different cultures have a different view on the same God. God, Allah, Shiva and The Great Chief Who Let's The Sun Rise are all different perceptions of the same God.
No one can claim his view of God is the right view, because in order to do so one has to fully en in dept understand God. But God is to great for any human to fully understand. By denieing this you are denieing His Greatness and Perfection.

Furthermore it is my believe that God has given mankind a free will. Only because we have a free will, we can really worship God (if God had "forced" us to believe, what would be the value?).
A "consequence" of this free will is that we are able to interpret His Guidance (Quran, Bible) in the actual situation we are currently living in.
If the Guidance where to be absolute and not open to interpretation would that not that away our free will?

...that there are objective arguments against the illogic of Christian based understanding of what it takes to define god...

If you really are the relgious Muslim you claim to be, how is it possible that you think Allah is so limited that He can be defined with only logic?

Is there a greater reason for our existence? Are we to be transfigured? And for what, where, when, how? etc.

As long as we don't have a complete answer to these questions, wouldn't it be better to be humble and kind to God and other people.
