Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

does it not say in the quran that it is forbidden? why come nigh to it?

The Qur'an states that consumption of pork meat is forbidden under ordinary circumstances to followers of the Deen. Likewise, followers of the Deen are told to abstain from praying while drunk/intoxicated. The substances themselves are not unlawful.

Since the substances are not unlawful, and there is no injunction against it, it stands to reason that there is no problem with working at a place that sells them--nor in buying from such a place. Not eating swine flesh is a rite; other people have their own rites to fulfill.

22:67 For every nation We have established rites which they are to fulfill. So do not let the matter fall into dispute. And call upon your Lord, for you are on a guidance which is straight.

ALLAH knows best.

@TruthSeeker101:  :welcome:

For many, this site is a source of support and interaction. If being a monotheist is a challenge, then it is a worthy challenge! :) There are definitely more monotheists than those who follow Qur'an only--don't forget about these people, because they are truly brothers and sisters in faith.

It is not rites that make a monotheist.

Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

I don't claim that this or that is haram or halal; no human has the right to make such a claim.

Imo, it depends on context. Mentioning others in prayer seems harmless so long as we are not asking those others for help. I would not personally single out any one Prophet or Messenger to ask the Almighty to bless--Peace upon them all!

May ALLAH see fit to guide all seekers. Are the seekers being worshipped?  :nope:

Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

I agree that self determination should be honored--but contracts should also be honored. Russia is indulging itself at the expense of its neighbors--and at the expense of its economy and world reputation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_weapons_and_Ukraine

When the Ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons, Russia, United States, and other world powers agreed to keep their hands off the Ukraine. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budapest_Memorandum_on_Security_Assurances

Maybe it is time for the Ukraine to regain nuclear weapons status...why have a unilateral contract?

What happens if this repeats in Estonia, Latvia, or Belarus? What was Russia's position on Chechnya and its independence?  :hmm

General Issues / Questions / Re: Lets Talk About SEX and More SEX!!!!

@DistortedHuman/J.R.:  :welcome:

Science has no laws; only theories. One study hardly covers all of the ground regarding sex.

What about pregnancies and STDs? Do contraceptives ever fail or have serious side effects?  :yes What has been the availability of contraceptive technology throughout history?  :hmm Are there health risks to women from pregnancy?

Safe sex is a misnomer, just like nonlethal weapons. There are less-lethal weapons, and there is safer sex, but there are inherent risks with both sex and weapons.

Marriage means different things to different people. To some, commitment is the same as marriage (common law marriage, for instance). Marriage predates marriage licenses, to be sure!

Studies have also shown that people in marriages have more regular sex than people not in marriages. Without marriage, any children arising from sex are likely to have fewer resources available to them; likewise for the single mother. Marriage protects people--it protects a male's interests and a female's interests, as well as the interests of a community.

What is the case against marriage?

Nowhere do I find it in AQ that working at such places is unlawful. Why would working there be worse than shopping there? Do they sell lottery tickets too?  :)

39:45 And when GOD alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter are filled with aversion; and when others are mentioned besides Him, they rejoice!

40:12 This is because when GOD alone was mentioned, you rejected, but when partners were set up with Him, you believed. Therefore, the judgment is for GOD, the Most High, the Great.

2:136 Say: "We believe in GOD and in what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the prophets from their Lord; we do not make a distinction between any of them and to Him we submit."

2:285 The messenger believes in what was sent down to him from his Lord; and the believers, all who believe in GOD, and His angels, and His Books, and His messengers: "We do not make a distinction between any of His messengers;" and they said: "We hear and obey, forgive us our Lord, and to you is our destiny."
 
3:84 Say: "We believe in GOD and what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord. We do not make a distinction between any of them, and to Him we submit."
 
4:152 And those who believe in GOD and His messengers and do not make a distinction between any of them, We will give them their recompense. And GOD is Forgiving, Merciful.


Peace upon ALL Prophets and ALL Messengers.

ALLAH knows best.

Hadith Discussions / Re: WHY YOU SHOULDN’T FOLLOW HADITH
« on: March 23, 2014, 08:16:46 PM »
Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

@TheWord:  :welcome:

Have you read the articles on the main page? There are several regarding hadith--some with scholarly information. Regarding the blog, if you can edit posts so that the words don't wrap around, it will be easier reading. Extra-Qur'anic hadith and Sunnah refer to alleged sayings and actions. The wording about the Caliphs detracts from the topic. If you are writing to a Muslim audience, the fact that AQ states that it is complete, fully detailed, and enough for a believer might be worth including.

2:170 And if they are told: "Follow what GOD has sent down," they say: "No, we will follow what we found our fathers doing!" What if their fathers did not comprehend anything and were not guided?

6:114 "Shall I seek other than GOD as a judge when He has sent down to you the Book fully detailed?" Those to whom We have given the Book know it is sent down from your Lord with the truth; so do not be of those who have doubt.

6:115 And the word of your Lord has been completed with truth and justice; there is no changing His words. He is the Hearer, the Knower.

7:185 Have they not looked at the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that GOD has created? Perhaps their time is drawing near; so in which narrative [ḥadīthin] after this one will they believe?

25:30 And the messenger said: "My Lord, my people have deserted this Qur'an."

29:51 Is it not enough for them that We have sent down to you the Book that is being recited to them? In that is a mercy and a reminder for people who believe.

45:6 These are the revelations of God, We recite them to you with the truth. So, in which narrative [ḥadīthin] after GOD and His revelations do they believe?

77:50 So in what narrative [ḥadīthin], after it, will they believe?

http://free-minds.org/hadith-conspiracy-distortion-islam
http://free-minds.org/myth-hadith
http://free-minds.org/obey-god-obey-messenger


Of course, it is only extra-Qur'anic hadith that shouldn't be followed. AQ says that it is the best hadith--and AQ contains hadith anyway.

20:9 And did the narrative [ḥadīthu] of Moses come to you?

39:23 GOD has sent down the best narrative [l-ḥadīthi], a Book that is similar, dual. The skins of those who are concerned towards their Lord shiver from it, then their skins and their hearts soften up to the remembrance of GOD. Such is the guidance of GOD; He guides with it whoever He wills. And for whoever GOD misguides, then none can guide him.

51:24 Has the narrative [ḥadīthu] of the noble guests of Abraham come to you?

@Sabeel Ameer:  :welcome:

There are opinions and understandings, but there is probably nobody here to teach--nor should anyone seek a teacher!

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

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.

Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

So how hard is it to get into heaven? Would the average person get in? What about one whom has done equal right and wrong?

I don't know the answers to these questions. Hell will be a busy place. Nobody will be done any injustice.

50:30 The Day We say to Hell: "Are you full?" And it says: "Is there not more?"

In regards to right and wrong, maybe this can help a little:

5:100 Say: "The bad and the good are not equal, even if the abundance of the bad impresses you." So be aware of GOD, O you who possess intelligence, that you may succeed.

23:62 And We do not burden a soul except with what it can bear. And We have a record that speaks with the truth, they will not be wronged.

Be a good person and a monotheist and all should go well, ISA.

ALLAH knows best.
