Salaam,

Before all this response, please have patience with the content.  He has a 95 video series and a 1275 page book on this topic, he has studied it for 20 years.  He has done his research specifically to refute the ahruf and Qira'aat rubbish and to construct [to his mind] a logical story of the history of the Qur'an.

He also does a study on the history of the arabic script btw.

I don't know what you are trying to achieve above, but there is, for an undeniable fact, changes in words that have nothing to do with the development of the script or anything like that in some of the less common readings [Warsh etc.].

Give his work a chance.

Finally, the historcal manuscripts of the Qur'an appear to be a mixed bag, and cannot be assumed to be respresenting the full truth of the Qur'anic transmission.

Edit:  I am interested in what convinces you about the alif topic?  Your comments on them are completely illogical.  The alif and its existence has a nontrivial impact on the sense of a word, there is no logic to the claim that it was left to hope that you could figure it out from context, that is basically the removal of the vowel that should be there.  and Husna and ihsan, these are different, and there is no logic to the claim that it is a scribal practice to avoid alifs in the middle of words, daaraba and darba and many other words could concievably work i the same place, and it would be pure neglegence to leave that out.

Please point me to where I can read more about these contentions, as at this point they make no sense to me.

Salaam,

I have completed a book on the topic of guidance in the Qur'an, from the Qur'an.

It will get some tweaks and updates as needed and as possible.

I think the people on this forum will find use in it, so please check it out and share.  It is free to download in PDF and ePub.

I see no answers yet.

Just emotional pleading.

Do whatever you want, just don't act like its Islam.

You are all pathetic.

By that laughable logic, lets throw away the Qur'an.

If you have a problem with the logic of the article, give a spcific example.

Thank you

Salaam,

Its bad news you took it off, you have given in to the female desire to show off yourself (for who?  To help the modesty of men or to attract?).  The very reason women are told to cover themselves.

To learn what the Qur'an says, as opposed to liberalist qur'anists who love nothing more than throwing away and difficulty in Islam, please read the following article based solely on the Qur'an,  any questions are welcome.

Which is found at http://www.detailedquran.com

Salaam and I hope you reconsider our decision.

Science / Re: Evolution or Intelligent design ?
« on: December 12, 2012, 07:07:43 AM »
Salaam,

There is no evolution in the Qur'an.  Variation within species is not evolution, that is a misapplication of a purposely vague term.  Evolution as a term that is accepted by secularists is the grand statement that all life has descended with modification from some 'simple' first organism(s) (there are various theories actually).

Micro and macroevolution.  If you believe that micro can add up to macro, you are truly lacking in knowledge and intelligence.  I am sorry, but I have no mercy for such blatant ignorance on a topic like this.  I have studied this topic for ten years now at least and I am sick of liberal Muslims (and many qur'an alone muslim) spouting this complete garbage.

If you want a proper analogy, micro is like jumping and macro is like flying.  Jump all you want, you will never fly.  There are issues of constrained coding in DNA and morphology which completely destroy this line of reasoning that lots of micro leads to macro.

The Qur'an is very clear on this issue, and I am willing to debate anyone on this topic.

The scientific evidence has completely crushed the grand theory of evolution and now demonstrates the clear design of life.  Secular scientists and their muslim/christian lapdogs hold on to the theory of evolution because it is the only politically correct one and because for atheists, there are no allowable alternatives.  That is the only reason the theory (more correctly, hypothesis) survives.

To that end I recommend the following links to educate yourself (you can search within them to get copious amounts of data and refutations of evolutionist bs).

http://darwins-god.blogspot.com/
http://crev.info/   (A Christian creationist website, but this section is an excellent and updated resource on articles and finding)

Salaam to all and if you think the Qur'an accepts or allows for evolution, bring it on, I am ready to debate.

Peace Pcborg,

I read your entire article on salaat, and I found it very good and consistent. Overall, the only factor that I disagreed with was your description of the "Friday prayer" - I interpreted "yawmi aljumaat" to refer to the day of assembly (or time of meeting), not necessarily falling on Friday, but being any day in which submitters gather together in worship... Other than this, though, I think your article on this subject is very good and extremely informative, and it's based on the reading. May Allah guide us all to the truth on this matter...

Peace,

Ahmad

Salaam,

Thank you for your feedback.  I have come across your opinion (not from you though) on the fridy prayer issue.  I understand where you are coming from, so perhaps I should include my reason(s) for interpreting it in the way I do.

Salaam

Salaam,

I will prepare the article inshallah in the next couple of weeks, I have been unusually busy of late...  My apologies to any who await its appearance.  Read my salat article until that time, it is sufficient if read logically.

salaam

pcborg,

If the context is not situational, then Quran is useless as Guidance. That is what you mean to convey? By the way what is "Quranic context"?

Peace,


The context for interpretation is the Qur'an.  The context for application is situational.

Situational considerations cannot dictate what the Qur'an means, else the Qur'an is not guidance at all. As an example, homosexuality has now been accepted as physically and psychologically safe, with homosexual pairings increasingly being allowed to adopt and raise children.  We are also told that this is just as good as the father mother model. 

So given that context or situation, would you seek to redefine the Qur'anic position on homosexuality?

How about if you were fooled into believing that homosexuality is genetic? (There is ironclad evidence which refutes this by the way, twin studies).

Would you then say "oh well, Allah cannot punish people if they have no control over what they do" and then go about using that situation to change the guidance of the Qur'an on this?

So on and so on.

Salaam,
