General Issues / Questions / Re: Bakka/Mecca

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.

Salam,

I hold the view that it is the same as alcohol - permissible with a caution warning to its use.

Salam,

The site of Mecca was destroyed if you consider that the fiery stones that were unleashed on the people of Lot have a resonance in traditional history, where they believe that the people of the elephant were destroyed in Mecca by fiery projectiles.

i liked this video. It may not be 100% accurate, but it gives a better outlook on our solar system than the old textbooks.

Peace,

Musadiqan is closest to 'affirming'. The prophets affirmed what was previously revealed (they did not sanction what existed as is but revealed its corrections'. The request is for these people to rule by 'what God sent down', not 'by what they had' (there is a big difference in that small choice of words).

Islamic Calendar & Ramadhan. / Re: Ramadhan inevitably a proper noun?
« on: July 20, 2015, 04:05:36 AM »
Peace,

It is a description of a month, not a name.

Had it been 'Ramadhan Alshahr' then it would be a name.

Also, had it been 'Alshar Alramadhan' it would indicate it is a known thing (like Alshahr Alharam).

Salam,

Not sure you can be a human and not sin.

Joseph sinned with the wife of the Governor and nearly did what you did.

I can go on with all the Prophets.

Seeking forgiveness and acknowledging the sin is the best way to go.

Not sure about your proposal to marry with 2 witnesses. Marriage had rules and one of them is longevity and responsibility - it is a commitment for life, not a license for sex.

Sunni/Shia Religion / Re: Are Sunnis and Shias polytheists?
« on: July 10, 2015, 01:20:21 AM »
Peace,

My view is: yes, they are polytheistic.

When they abandon their scholars and other sources for law, they will become Muslims.

General Issues / Questions / Re: Which Qoran ?

Salam,

To adress this question. The best meaning that fits the other verses/context of the Quran is the correct vowel structure.
