Prophets and Messengers / Messengers after Mohammed
« on: July 05, 2021, 11:08:18 PM »

This may be a trivial post, but I have seen many times the debate on Mohammed being the "last" Prophet, with people implying that Prophet also encompasses "Messenger" and therefore Mohammed is the last Prophet and the last Messenger.

Rather than going through the usual: "prophet and messenger are not the same" argument, I would like to share the below verse which I find ends this discussion once and for all:

"O messengers, eat from what is good, and do good work. I am aware of what you do." (23:51)

Islamic Calendar & Ramadhan. / Moses and the 40 Day Appointment
« on: May 27, 2020, 05:04:47 AM »

In 7:142-143, we have Moses being given 40-days to wait before being able to speak with God (broken down into 30+10 days)"

7:142 And We set a meeting for Moses in thirty  nights, and We complemented them with ten, so the designated time of his Lord was set at forty nights. And Moses said to his brother  Aaron: "Be my successor with my people and be upright, and do not follow the path of the corrupters."

7:143 So when Moses came to Our designated time, and his Lord spoke to him, he said: "My Lord, let me look upon you." He said: "You will not see Me, but look upon the mountain, if it stays in its place then you will see Me." So when his Lord revealed Himself to the mountain, He caused it to crumble;  thus Moses fell unconscious. When he awoke, he said: "Glory to You, I repent to You and I am the first of those who believe."

So, after waiting alone for 30+10 days, God spoke to Moses and revealed His commands..

Yet, to show that this was not to be a "one-off" event, we have Moses once again holding his people to attend to God's designated time:

7:155 And  Moses  selected from his people seventy men for Our designated time; so when  the  earthquake seized them,  he said: "My Lord,  if You wished You could have destroyed  them before this,  and  me as well. Will you destroy  us for what  the  foolish among  us have done?  It is all Your test,  You misguide  with  it whom You please and You guide with it whom You please. You are our Supporter, so forgive us and have mercy on us; You are the Best Forgiver."

The questions I have for this post:

- Why did God break the period into 2 sections (30+10) and not give the 40 days outright?
- If this event repeats (as evidenced by 7:155), then can it be done today?
- Jesus is said to have secluded himself for 40 days during his mission (source: Bible "temptation of Christ") - same reason?
- Is the fast of 2:183-185 (which seems to be broken down into 2 sections) related to this goal of meeting God in His designated time?

This is a good video on the evidences that’s Meca-Arabia is not the Meca of the Quran.

Prophecies of the Quran / DABA = AI
« on: December 11, 2019, 11:12:02 AM »

I was reading 27:82 and have come to a slightly simplistic understanding.

We always read the verse in full sentence - thinking that the DABA will speak to the people informing them that they are unaware of God’s signs. However, there is another way to read it:

“And when the word has fallen upon them, We will produce for them a creature of the Earth that will speak to them. The people are unaware of Our signs”

This simple verse split changes the creature from one that converses about God - to one that simply speaks. This is Artificial Intelligence in its basic form and not a complicated prophet creature.

2019 marks 20 years since Free-Minds.Org was created back in 1999.

The site has gone from a very basic format to a full network of articles/ideas/books that have been contributed by the Muslims that have made this site their home...

I hope that the journey we have all taken has made us better human beings and that our efforts to reform will have a positive impact on the generations to come...

God bless and guide every one of us to His straight path...May we live and die as Submitters.

Please have some fun by seeing how this site has developed/looked over the last 2 decades:*/
