Salam.

I agree with Wakas. We have various articles on this site that are all “Quran Centric” but vary sometimes in their conclusions.

The one underlying theme we all have is that we submit to God alone and no other.

Questions/Comments on the Quran / Re: Can you eat Monkey?

Salam youmu,

They would fall under what the trained birds and dogs catch (that would cover all birds and most small animals - which are not anaam).

Dear Johnny,

I’m not sure what it is your trying to reconcile - the Quran is very clear on the blasphemy of ascribing a son to God or that Jesus was God.

Even the Jews are bewildered by this new religion that has been created by Christians which screams in the face of monotheism and the teachings of the prophets.

The trinity is a messy business that requires the recipient to perform mental acrobatics with logic and reason (I and the father are one, but I am the son of man, and I call to my father for help, and I eat and bleed like a man, and the devil tempts me...).

General Issues / Questions / Re: When were we dead as per 2:28?
« on: July 25, 2020, 10:19:24 PM »
Salam,

Your question is spot on. According to the Qur'an, we have existed before this life, therefore, we had died in that life and became alive in this:

7:172   And your Lord took for the children of Adam from their backs, their progeny; and He made them witness over themselves: "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes, we bear witness." Thus you cannot say on the Day of Resurrection that you were unaware of this.

Peace,

I’ll give an example to perhaps get the point across.

According to the Quran, a man covering his genitals is adhering to the law of God. However, if I were residing in Mecca at the time of the Prophet, and walking around in shorts, then I may as well be carrying a sign saying: “I am a believer in the Quran”. This dress would get me killed by the rejectors.

Flip the story to a woman and you will see the point (a woman in a skirt or not wearing the Abaya/outer garment would be harassed in as she would be seen as someone outside their norms/values). This is true even today in modern Arabia - let alone at the time of Mohammed.

Peace Layth,

How lengthening their garment can hide their identity so that the cant be recognized?

They can still be identified by their face. Or does lengthening also covers face covering?

Because they're blending in by dressing in the Arab garbs around them (the shawl, the long robes, etc.). The Qur'an has freed women from cultural slavery and taught the believers that a woman may be about while dressed 'modestly' (covering private parts), A believing woman would stand out in such a society because she will follow what God has decreed - not what the customs decree.

Salam Wakas,

The Arabic allows both meanings - which is why I always let context to be the judge for which meaning is more logical.

As an example, in 5:6 the Arabic allows for "wiping of the feet" or "washing of the feet" (if the verbs are strung together from the start). Both can be correct, however, I go with "wiping" as the subject has made the "head" separate from washing and then has joined the feet with the head.

Salam.

The second is correct.

You need to ask the obvious question: who is it that is doing the harming in 33:59?

33:60 tells us that the ‘hypocrites’ are the subject matter.

Obviously the instructions are meant to protect the believing women from the hypocrites.

To achieve this, they are told to blend in with society by lengthening their garments - so that they would not be recognized and harmed.

Believers don’t harm people.

Salam,

I will re-post my views here as the topic was discussed in another thread:

- Qibla 1 (no issue, this was what the prophet was following)
- Qibla 2 (the reverse of Qibla-1, creates confusion, stress to the believers as well as makes non-believers question them)
- Qibla 3 (the restricted Temple, given to the Prophet after he showed discomfort with Qibla 2).

My personal view: there should have been a return to Qibla 1 after the death of Mohammed (as Qibla 3 was given to him personally and would end with him),

Salam Sara,

It is a literal as it gets to my reading.
