I have not seen the video you refer to, but I do kneel and prostrate during Salat. 

Salam Ervin,

I don't see the contradiction. One rule is applying to all the people of the book, while the other is specific to those who refuse to uphold the laws of the land they are living under.

I can think of "reaching-out" as possibly fitting in better. "support" deviates too much from the root of the word.


There are no "steps" to leaving God's system - most of us fall in and out of it for the most part of our lives. We only pray, as the prophets before us did, that we "die as submitters".

As for the arguments and bickering that you may see here...It is human nature to argue even when the knowledge has been attained...

3:19    The system with God is submission, and those who received the Book did not dispute except after the knowledge came to them out of jealousy between them. And whoever rejects the revelations of God, then God is swift in judgment.

What I have come to learn is that the path to God alone is never easy. You lose friends, become isolated, get shunned by family, are ridiculed for going against the majority, etc.. Add to this cocktail the tests that God will send upon you to test your conviction - and that is when people leave or break or simply revert back to their old ways.

29:2   Did the people think that they will be left to say: "We believe" without being put to the test?
29:3   We had tested those before them, so that God would distinguish those who are truthful and so that He would know the liars.

May we all have the strength and good fortune to die as submitters...

Txs. I put a link at the bottom of the page to this topic.


Can you provide me with the link to the article. I am trying to find it but with no luck.

This forum is a place of learning and exchanging ideas. It is not a utopia, nor are the people here perfect. Our test is in the real world...this is a place where we can bounce ideas and not fear from the reprecuss of being wrong.

How you live your life is what counts.

If you can uphold the Quranic laws in your day to day life and with your family, then you have succeeded.

Don't lie, don't steal, don't commit adultery, don't be unjust, serve God alone. This is what matters when all is said and done.

While that may be true, it has no impact on the discussion at hand. Many towns which were destroyed have been lost for centuries, some never being populated again (Petra - capital of the Nabataen empire - was lost for centuries and left abandoned).

That Mecca was only populated in the 2nd or 4th century A.D. does not detract from what it could have been centuries before that.
