Introduce Yourself / Re: Salam, I am new. I need help.

Peace sister Burnian,

It gives my heart joy to meet people such as yourself who have found the path of God Alone...May you find bliss in this life and the hereafter.

With regards to your question/concern, the answer is very simple:

17:36   And do not uphold what you have no knowledge of. For the hearing, eyesight, and heart, all these you are responsible for.

We are commanded to "cease and desist" from any act or practice until we have obtained sufficient knowledge regarding such act...And, in-case you find more than one understanding to an issue:

39:18   The ones who listen to what is being said, and then follow the best of it. These are the ones whom God has guided, and these are the ones who possess intelligence.

Indeed, it is a Book with all answers for those who submit.

May God have mercy on us all.

The ability to deregister was disabled a long time back since the software does gives the option for the user to delete all his/her posts (which in turn can wipe entire threads and others comments - especially if the user was the one who began the thread).

Peace,

People come and go from this forum so you may not at any moment in time get a snapshot of the fundamental faith system that is being upheld.

Many are proud and privileged to be Muslims, some are just looking for answers to ease their doubt, some are looking for a social network, and some are just passing the time...

Salam Sushi,

To answer your question, "yes", all who maintain that God is a trinity, all who maintain that God is the Messiah, are deemed by God to be "rejecters/kufaar" and thus are destined for Hell.

As for the many great things they may have done in their lives, these will be like ashes blown by the wind (14:18).

Finally, the question of "why" is answered in 7:172, where God tells us that all human creation has testified to the Lordship of God and that no claim can be made on the Day of Judgment that "we were not aware".

General Issues / Questions / Bakka/Mecca
« on: December 15, 2014, 03:10:36 AM »
Salam/Peace,

Just to share my understanding for the benefit of others.

I used to believe that Bakka and the Restricted Sanctuary were one in the same.

My understanding after much study is that they are two distinct locations.

Bakkah = Jerusalem (the site of the first sanctuary established for the people and the location of Abraham's test)

Restricted Temple/Restricted Sanctuary = Mecca (the site of the second temple and the location of Lot as well as many events mentioned in the Quran)

Mecca was destroyed by a meteor shower, from which the black stone of the Kaaba is taken.

The sanctuary/temple of Mecca was a stopping point for Pilgrims and is an acceptable site for making the animal sacrifice for those who cannot continue the journey.

Not sure why there is a lot of mental acrobatics to twist this verse into something it is not...

The command is clear: Bani Israel were told to kill themselves for their action. They refused, so God killed them and resurrected them to prove His point...Simple and clear.

Questions/Comments on the Quran / Re: Contradiction in 22:18?
« on: November 21, 2014, 07:23:09 AM »
Salam,

No contradiction.

The word "man" does not encompass "all". To do that, it would need the prefix "kul" (see 19:93 for clarification).

Regards,
