Islamic Calendar & Ramadhan. / shahr = lunar month ?
« on: July 15, 2022, 10:29:42 AM »
Peace,

There seems an issue with this article on shahr/timing
(I don't know this is already discussed, I searched the forum but didn't find)

From the article:
We also know from 2:189 that we should come into houses from the obvious front doors and not from the obscure backs. This hints to us that the "7ajj"/debate starts with the obvious full moon and that the unobvious crescent is what ends the "7ajj"/debate.

But 36:39 says:
And the moon we have measured it to appear in stages, until it returns like an old curved sheath.

Since it says "until it returns" (see ʿāda in 2:275 & 5:95) it implies that the moon becomes what it was in the beginning (it's initial shape, like an old curved sheath). So in 2:189 when God says we should come into houses from the doors/entrances not from the back, it hints to us to enter into the lunar cycles/months (shuhur) from the front/start/newmoon, not from other stages.

2:189
They ask you about the crescent moons. Say, “They are markers of time for mankind and for the hajj.” It is not piety that you should come to houses from their rear, but piety is he who is reverent and comes into houses by their doors/entrances. So reverence God, that you may succeed.

So crescent moons serve as timing devices for the start and end of shuhur (including the lunar months for hajj).

salaam dear brothers and sisters,

Hi. My name is Mohammed, I'm from India.
I'm in need of urgent financial support as an interest-free loan.
If anyone can help me out by lending me $1900, it would be forever appreciated.
We could agree how I may be able to pay you back or how I could help you in some way.

Thank you for your attention.

See how beautiful the life of a bird/ an animal or any non-human being!
They are not harming/destroying their home (i.e. the planet earth) in their whole life time!!

But the Modern-Ignorant-Selfish-Greedy-Stupid human, became a threat to himself and to all other inhabitants of the planet.

peace dear believing brothers and sisters,

Here is an article from Misconceptions about islam website,
http://misconceptions-about-islam.com/halal-meat.html

When God let us to do slaughter for food, i.e. when we are doing it with His permission(The Merciful/the Creator of the animal), why to worry about suffering, if we do it as prophets did?
I have witnessed both, natural death and slaughter of birds, in both cases they had almost same kind of expressions/movements/signs.
We can't believe the scientists always(if they say stunning reduces suffering) because sometime they will find it wrong in the future.

See preparing animal for slaughter without harm

[For anyone who sees this video : in this video the person says Allahuakbar, meaning Allah is greater -may be he wouldn’t have thought about it. Because how can Allah be greater than Himself? Allah calls Himself as Al-Kabeer (the Great). Akbar = greater]

General Issues / Questions / MARRIAGE WITH THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK
« on: May 20, 2019, 04:02:29 AM »
peace,

Some says Marriage between believing men, and women from the Book is clearly sanctioned by the Quran.
but I think this is only applicable for that time i.e. for marriages that are fixed(given the bridal due) before the revelation of Qur'an.

here's the translation of 5:5 as I understand the verse,
"This day (all) the good things are made lawful for you; and the food of those who have been given the Book is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them; and the chaste women from among the believers and the chaste women from among those who have been given the Book before you; when you have given them their bridal due, marrying not fornicating nor taking them as secret lovers/concubines; and whoever denies faith, his work indeed is of no account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers"

And the Qur'an says,
"O you who believe, do not take the Jews and the Nazarenes/Christians as allies, for they are allies to one another; and whoever takes them as such from among you is one of them. God does not guide the wicked people." [5:51]

5:82
You will find the people with the greatest animosity towards those who believe are the Jews and those who are polytheists; and you will find the closest in affection to those who believe are those who said: “We are Nazarenes/Christians;” that is because among them are Priests and Monks, and they are not arrogant.

5:83
And if they hear what was sent down to the messenger you see their eyes flooding with tears, for what they have known as the truth, they say: “Our Lord, we believe, so record us with the witnesses.”

So as they believed in the Qur'an, they will have Swalat, Fasting, Hajj etc. right? i.e. they are no more Nazarenes/Christians.

5:84
“And why should we not believe in God and what has come to us of the truth? And we yearn that our Lord admits us with the righteous people.”

Thus, 24:32, 4:25, 2:221 etc. suggests marry only believers.

General Issues / Questions / FAITH
« on: February 01, 2019, 09:23:39 AM »
Peace,

Do you really believe in GOD?
Then why you go to the doctor when you are ill? While GOD can heal all your illnesses?
Why you ask someone for a job? While GOD is capable of doing everything?

And you say,
You alone we worship and You alone we seek for help. [1:5]

Qur'an says,

Did the people think that they be left that they say: "We believed." And they are not being tested? [29:2]
##
Do you order the people with the righteousness and you forget yourselves, while you are reciting the Book? Do you not comprehend? [2:44]
And seek help through patience and through the prayers. And that it truly is a great/burden except on the humble. [2:45]
##
And most of them will not believe in God except while setting up partners. [12:106]
##
And We will test you for We know those who strive among you and those who are patient. And We will bring out/justify your qualities/information. [47:31]
##
...Anyone who puts his trust in God, then He suffices him. The commands of God will be done. God has decreed for everything a measure. [65:3]

Peace and best wishes
