General Issues / Questions / Could Zoroaster be a Prophet
« on: June 28, 2017, 10:44:00 AM »
I was watching the below video and was surprised by how much the Zoroastrian religion and Islam have in common. Allah only mentions a few Prophets in the Quran but could Zoroaster also have been a true Prophet of Allah?

The video starts off slow but is a very interesting insight into the Zoroastrian mindset, religion and philosophy.

The query is very simple, I just want to ask from the forum contributors about their stand on the consumption of alcohol. Do you think (based on your study) is it Haram or not?

As far as I have read in the Quran, we have been guided to abstain from it in situations where it clouds the mind during prayer (i.e excessive consumption), other than that Allah (SWT) in the Quran does not seem to declare it Haram for us. Maybe I'm wrong so need other peoples input.

General Issues / Questions / Why were we created?

Simple as that. Why did God create us and put us on this earth. Do we have any guidance on this issue from the Quran?

Why do most people here believe that we should not accept the hadith related to salat?

Ok I do agree that there is a lot of false info inserted into the hadith but why should we wholesale disregard the hadith literature altogether because of that? There may also be a lot of fact present in it. I feel that hadith such as that related to salat can be pretty accurate considering the fact that salat is such a vital part and a daily part of our faith in God. So obviously the Muslims from the time of the Prophet (PBUH) were doing it daily before the advent of the bukhari and muslim books.

I learned salat in the same way that my father and and grandfather learned it i.e. through our elders. We did not learn it through hadith literature. YES, we may do salat in a certain way which another group may not follow, but since Allah (swt) did not specify the exact way of salat then we may all be correct. So why not just do it in the way that other muslims have been doing it? I fail to see the need to be so anti-hadith where one is simply rejecting the form of prayer that was followed throughout history.

What exactly do people find so abhorrent about the form of salat followed by the sunnis and shias today? It is all about exclaiming the oneness and greatness of God and asking for betterment in this life and the hereafter for ourselves and our loved ones.

What exactly is it that ppl find so unacceptable about the way the sunni or shia do salat whereby they feel a need to invent their own ways for it?

General Issues / Questions / Justice on the day of Judgement
« on: June 24, 2015, 03:22:00 PM »
Peace to everyone,

Since this is my first post on this website I will just give a brief background on myself, I was born into a regular sunni family. My parents were religious but not to an extreme. So I recited the Quran in arabic (never actually understanding it) in the same way that most sunnis do, prayed in arabic (without understanding it). But I reached a stage in my life where I decided that I needed to actually study Islam on my own, even though where I come from (Pakistan) most of us are taught from childhood to only ask the mullahs about what Islam is because supposedly thinking on our own and researching Islam can lead towards kuffar, unless there is a clergyman to guide us. Anyway, ignoring the prevalent mindset I did start to read the translations of the Quran and after some time came to the realization that the Islam of the Quran is quite different to the Islam of the Hadith imposers. To be honest, at that time I had no idea that there was such a terminology as 'Quran Only' or 'Quranite' etc (for the record I do not consider myself a 'Quranite' I consider myself a Muslim). I had issues with the fact that hadith were not actually penned down by the Prophet himself and were a later addition just like what the Christians and the Jews did to their message from God.

Anyway, so to cut the story short, now that I believe that Quran is the only guidance that Allah (swt) has left for us through our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). I need to ask other people who are more knowledgeable on the Quran on how Allah (swt) guides us regarding the day of judgment. Allah (swt) has said that there will be a final judgment and there will be the ultimate justice for our deeds on that day, this is mentioned throughout the Quran and I agree that justice should be done for wrong the deeds in this life.

What I am confused about is this, if there is only one life for every soul, and some souls live to be a 100 years and some die at childbirth or when they are pre-pubescent. How are the souls of the pre-pubescent judged in a just way by Allah (swt) when they have not even been put through the trial. We do not believe in multiple lives or reincarnation, so then how is it just for a pre-pubescent soul to be sent to heaven while a the soul of the 80-100 year old is put through the trials and tribulations of life and then may end up in hell.

Does Allah (swt) elaborate on this point in the Quran in any way? Allah (swt) says that he is the most just and the most merciful. How does justice apply to those souls that were never put through the trial? Please understand that I am not trying to be insensitive to the tragedy that the death of a child entails for the family, I can understand that the death of a child can be a trial for the parent and the family from Allah (swt) but what about the soul that resided within the child. How was that soul put through the trial of life on earth.

If anyone has any references from the Quran on this issue I would be most grateful.

Peace be on all of you.
