Salam,

According to the Quran, calamities will not fall exclusively on the unrighteous, but also the righteous:

8:25
And fear against a chastisement / trial which cannot afflict exclusively those of you who do wrong, and know that God is severe in punishment.

Jesus is a fictional character, never existed, just like Moses, these fictions are created to control people, the old testament which until around a 1000 year ago was the old covenant, is a collection of fictional stories with zero physical evidence and quite a lot of contradictory physical evidence, the Jews never built the pyramids nor was they built by slaves.

The new testament was written jointly by, or with the guidance and instigation of, the two Emperors of the divided Roman Empire, the Vatican was reorganised and a religious hierarchy created, all other religions except Judaism and all medical centers in Europe and areas of Roman control were destroyed and a new monopolies created.

These books are no more valuable than toilet paper.


Do you disbelieve in the Quran as well? Do you believe the Quran is also fictional?

Sunni/Shia Religion / Re: If you can't beat them, Join them

Salamun alaikum.

I remember the time when I was first convinced of accepting the Quran as the sole religious authority about 5 or 6 years ago. Then I shared my thoughts of following the Quran alone to some of my family people, and I also remember how they refused to believe me except for my mother and brother, alhamdulillah. My two cousins with whom I shared my findings rejected me, and they were probably thinking how misguided I became. However, with all my enthusiasm and excitement, I used to keep arguing with them every other day and try to show them how ahadeeth cannot be a part of God's religion. I also had some small arguments with my father and aunt, but they rejected me. Now I don't talk about these with anyone anymore, and sometimes I wonder if I should remind/warn them about it from time to time?

To answer your question from my personal experience with my family, I think the main reason they don't want to let go off traditional Islam is because it's hard for them to accept that how can their fathers, relatives and teachers be all wrong all together? They simply cannot fathom the fact that they ALL can be wrong including the scholars they listen to. They are dumb, deaf and blind if you ask me, and they don't have a sincere heart. So yes, I do think that because the traditionalists cannot be beaten, the minds of the average muslims tell them to stick to the majority because the majority is "stronger" and therefore less likely to be wrong.

Lately I have been doing a lot of research on the flat earth topic, and I have to say that the more I do research, the flatter the earth gets.  :P

Can someone please explain to me this discrepancy:

General Issues / Questions / Re: The Book of Moses, a beacon and a mercy.
« on: November 05, 2016, 06:16:47 PM »
Salamun alaikum, dear brother.

When you say Torah, do you mean the original/unedited Torah that prophet Moses received? Or do you mean the present Torah? I believe the present Torah contains truth mixed with falsehood.

The Quran acknowledges the alterations of Biblical text:

2:75
Have you any hope that they will be true to you when a party of them used to listen to the word of God, then used to change it, after they had understood it, knowingly?

2:79
Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: "This is from God," so that they may take from it a small price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby

However, this does not mean a wholesale corruption of the previous revelations, because God expects/instructs the followers of those revelations to judge according to what they have:

5:47
Let the people of the Injeel judge by what God has revealed in it. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what God has revealed, they are those who rebel

3:93
All food was lawful to the children of Israel except that which Israel had forbidden to himself, before the Torah was revealed. Say: Bring then the Torah and read it, if you are truthful

Now a pertinent question may be that if the Biblical text had undergone changes (although to a certain extent and not completely), how will a follower of previous revelations find out which commandments in their books are from God and which commandments were later added/indoctrinated? There is a verse in the Quran which says that the Quran makes clear about much of the areas of the previous revelations, but also overlooks other areas:

5:15
O People of the Book, surely there has come to you our Messenger, making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the scripture and overlooking much. Surely has come to you from God a light and a clear book

The above verse, according to my humble understanding, means that God confirms the truth of previous revelations, and areas of previous revelations which became concealed or confusing to people has been made clear in the Quran. Of course, the Quran did not correct every single error of the previous scriptures, that's why at the end of the verse it says, "overlooking much", but has corrected all areas which are necessary for the adherents of the previous scriptures to be able to lead a life in the proper way that God want them to.

Now more questions arise - does that mean the Jews and Christians will have to believe in the veracity of the Quran and that it is from God? Will they go to hell if they do not believe the Quran to be the word of God? I will not attempt to answer these questions because I do not have sufficient knowledge regarding these.  :peace:

Peace all,


Everything ultimately does belong to Him. But then we have to think about human accomplishments and inventions that we have brought about ourselves. Such as money, coins, dollars, currency, etc., as you mentioned. Humankind created this. God did not. Money is not a natural creation. So then is money ours, a human invention, and something that we earn individually through jobs and careers, or is money His? I think this is where we have to classify the invention itself. Is the invention in question an extension of ourselves? Does it help us progress in a worldly way, a mental/personality way, or in a spiritual way? Does it not?


Allah takes credit for all inventions as it is He who teaches us:

96:3-5
Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One, who taught by the pen, taught man what he did not know.
