General Issues / Questions / Re: Deleting good deeds
« on: May 16, 2020, 10:02:13 PM »
Salam

In the holy Quran, there are many verses that say all good deeds will be nullified if a person commits big sin. But in some verses it says that the good deeds of the believers will be nullified (for stuff that are obviously not big sins, technically it's not even sin) like, if they raise their voice above the prophet's voice. My question is, are all good deeds going to be nullified or just some of them.. And also, we are able not to do great sins, like murder. We can protect ourselves from that and losing our deeds, but if even small stuff can be the reason to lose all your deeds then it's impossible to bring anything to the day of judgement. On the other hand, there are verses that say that small sins will be forgiven if we stay away from the big ones. Then this seems like a contradicttion.. Will small sin be forgiven, or it will delete all your good deeds? I'm confused

(Somebody might say raising voice above prophet's voice is a big thing. I agree, but in every day life we say or do stuff without paying attention and we tend to forget..how to not make similar mistakes?)

Salam ilma_bee,

[4:116] God does not forgive that partners be set up with Him, and He forgives other than that for whom He pleases. Whoever sets up  partners with God has indeed strayed a far straying.

[6:88] Such is the guidance of God, He guides with it whom He pleases of His servants. And if they set up partners, then all that they had  worked would fall away from them.

Committing shirk is what make deeds become in vain and God does not forgive this sin (He forgives other than that for whom He is pleased with).

[2:271] If you openly give charities, then it is acceptable; but if you conceal them and give them to the poor, then that is better for  you. And He cancels some of your sins; and God is Expert to all  that you do.

He erases some of our sins if we give charity openly or secretly.

[11:114] And hold the Connection at two parts of the day, and the near side of the night. The good deeds take away the bad. This is a  reminder to those who remember.

Good deeds take away the bad ones.

[4:31] If you avoid the major sins that you are prohibited against, then We will cancel your existing sins and admit you to a generous  entrance.

Nobody is sinless but if we strive to avoid major ones, then God promises cancellation of minor ones.

Based on these, I personally put my first priority to avoid committing shirk as this will be the one that He will not forgive and it will result in other deeds become in vain and we have been informed that majority of those who believe in God are committing shirk.

[12:103] And most of the people, even if you are diligent, will not believe.
[12:104] And you are not asking them for any wage, it is but a reminder to the worlds.
[12:105] And how many a sign in the heavens and the earth do they pass by, while they are turning away from it.
[12:106] And most of them will not believe in God except while setting up partners.

Some examples of what can make one become mushrik:

- Being divided into "religion"

[30:30] So set your face to the system of monotheism. It is the inclination that God has nurtured the people on. There is no changing in the  creation of God. Such is the pure system, but most of the people  do not know.
[30:31] Turn to Him, and be aware of Him, and hold the Connection, and do not be of the polytheists.
[30:32] From those who have divided their system and become "religion", each group exult with what they have.

- Forbid things based on what God has never authorized.

[16:35] And those who were polytheists said: “If God had wished, we would not have served a thing other than Him; neither us nor  our fathers; nor would we have made forbidden anything other  than from Him.” Those before them did exactly the same thing;  so are the messengers required to do anything except deliver with  clarity?

[7:33] Say: “My Lord has made forbidden immorality; what is public of it and private; and sin, and aggression without cause, and that  you set up partners with God that which He has never authorized,  and that you say about God what you do not know.”

It is a common recurring pattern on religions.. any religion for that matter.

Hans Wilhelm summed it up quite nicely on his video:
THE RELIGION DISASTER
https://youtu.be/XRJKkQnJiVc

But again nobody is immune from this phenomenon...
Once the common pattern being applied to invent a new religion (let's take for example the religion of Quranism) then the same results will be produced. The same recipe will always resulted in the same dishes.

Really nice video! Thanks Jafar for sharing!

[30:30] So set your face to the system of monotheism. It is the inclination that God has nurtured the people on. There is no changing in the  creation of God. Such is the pure system, but most of the people  do not know.

Let's not be divided into "religion" which would make us of polytheists.

[4:116] God does not forgive that partners be set up with Him, and He forgives other than that for whom He pleases. Whoever sets up  partners with God has indeed strayed a far straying.

Indeed, polytheists have indeed strayed a far straying and God will not forgive shirk.

[6:88] Such is the guidance of God, He guides with it whom He pleases of His servants. And if they set up partners, then all that they had  worked would fall away from them.

And polytheists' deeds would be in vain.

Prophets and Messengers / Re: 2:253 explaination
« on: April 28, 2020, 11:32:30 AM »
In Al-Baqarah in says:

Those are the messengers
We gave preference to some over others

Who are the messengers that were given preference to? I assume the Ulul-Azm (Noah, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa and Mohammad)

I saw another verse which said not to differentiate between Messengers, but here is says that some Messengers have preference over others? So I assume that the Messengers who bought the Law of God have preference?

Salam dn1,

In His side, yes messengers have ranks ...some are above others.

However for our side, this is what Quran teaches

[2:136] Say: “We believe in God and in what was sent down to us and what was sent down to Abram, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob,  and the Patriarchs, and what was given to Moses and Jesus, and what was given to the prophets from their Lord without making distinction between any of them and to Him we submit.”

Making distinction between any of messengers is not characteristic of believers.

[40:78] And We have sent messengers before you. Some of them We have narrated to you, and some We did not narrate to you. And it was  not given to any messenger that he should bring a sign except  with the permission of God. So, when the judgment of God is  issued, the matter is decided with the truth, and the followers of  falsehood will be lost.

And since there are messengers not narrated to us, then we really don't have the "shortlist" of which messengers are in higher ranks.


Wassalam,
Ade

Not sure if you have read from our sister as below:

I'm just scared that if I do less than what is written or recommended as you say, that maybe it would be reducing from salat..just like in the verse where it says it's ok to reduce from it while in fear. So I'm affraid if not in fear, then it has to be full. Actually what scares me is the difficulty in performing this daily, and struggling in many situations.. I guess there is no solution for my problem..

Salam ilma_bee,

Muslim and Mukmin are two different groups of people.

[49:14] The Nomads said: “We believe.” Say: “You have not believed; but you should say: ‘We have submitted;’ until belief enters into  your hearts.” And if you obey God and His messenger, He will  not put any of your works to waste. God is Forgiver, Merciful.

Mukmin is performing at higher level than Muslim.

[49:15] Believers are those who believe in God and His messenger, then they became without doubt, and they strive with their money and  their lives in the cause of God. These are the truthful ones.

And accordingly the reward is doubled for those who perform at Mukmin level.

[28:53] And if it is recited to them, they say: “We believe in it. It is the truth from our Lord. Indeed, we had submitted before it.”
[28:54] To these We grant twice the reward for that they have been patient. And they counter evil with good, and from Our provisions to  them, they give.

[9:111] God has purchased from the believers their very lives and their wealth, that they will have Paradise; they fight in the cause of  God—so they kill and are killed—a promise that is true upon  Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And whoever  fulfills this pledge with God, then have good news of the pledge  which you are concluded with. Such is the great triumph.

And one of the requirements to be performing at Mukmin level is as per 4:103.

[4:103] Once you are done with the Salat, then remember God while standing, or sitting, or on your sides. Then, when you are  secure, hold the Salat. Indeed, the Salat for the  believers is a book that is scheduled

Overall, just do our best and let God decide at what level we are performing. At the end of the day, if one is finally saved, then it is already great victory!

[40:7] Those who carry the Throne and all those surrounding it glorify the praise of their Lord, and believe in Him, and they  seek forgiveness for those who have believed: “Our Lord, You  encompass all things with mercy and knowledge, so forgive those  who repented and followed Your path, and spare them the agony  of Hell.”
[40:8] “Our Lord, and admit them into gardens of delight which You had promised for them and for those who did good of their fathers,  their spouses, and their progeny. You are the Noble, the Wise.”
[40:9] “And save them from the sins. And whoever You save from the sins, on that Day, You have granted him mercy. And such is the  great triumph.


Wassalam,

General Issues / Questions / Re: Where did it go wrong
« on: April 27, 2020, 12:45:25 AM »
Hadith literature is totally unreliable. Just want to give an example to illustrate how unreliable it is.

From the literature, it is told that prophet Muhammad was an orphan (his father died before he was born and his mother died when he was still 6 years old or so). But Quran gives very different history.

[17:23] And your Lord decreed that you shall not serve except He, and do good to your parents. Should one of them or both of them reach  old age, do not say to them a word of disrespect nor shout at them,  but say to them a kind saying.

From the above verse, the address is singular which is the messenger. So at whatever age he became messenger of God, at that time his father and his mother were still alive. This is so different from the story in hadith literature. The hadith literature is wrong about prophet Muhammad's father and mother.

Reading Quran and shahih hadith books is like reading true story and reading stories fabricated to conceal the true story.

General Issues / Questions / Re: How do you pray?
« on: April 27, 2020, 12:18:50 AM »
Personally, I pray in the conventional manner. The quran refers to praying as involving standing and prostration, which supports conventional wisdom regarding prayer. Interestingly, the old testament has references to prayer involving prostration.

Just want to highlight "small" observations.

Regarding sujud in relation to salat session, Quran seems to imply that once one sujud then the salat session for him is completed.

[4:102] And if you are with them and you hold the Salat for them, then let a group from among them stand with you and let them  bring their weapons; and when they have prostrated then let them be behind you; and let a group who has not yet Salat come and Salat with you, and let them be wary and let them bring  their weapons with them. The rejecters hope that you would  neglect your weapons and goods so they can come upon you in  one blow. There is no sin upon you if you are impeded by rainfall,  or if you are ill, that you place down your weapons. And be wary.  God has prepared for the rejecters a humiliating retribution.

This is different from sunni in which salat session ends with salam (not with sujud).

Another observation:

[17:110] Say: “Call on God or call on the Almighty; by whichever you call on, to Him are the best names.” And do not be too loud in your Salat, nor too quiet; but seek a path in between.

Straightforward command but sunni is usually not aware of this (maybe some are aware but conceal this?) ...and when made aware, they never come back in discussion to confirm so I don't know whether they follow the command or not.

I guess trees can talk and they have emotions



Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

There was a trunk of a date-palm tree upon which the Prophet (ﷺ) used to recline while delivering Khutbah (sermon). When a pulpit was placed in the mosque, we heard the trunk crying out like a pregnant she-camel. the Prophet (ﷺ) came down from the pulpit and put his hand on the trunk and it became quiet.


Sunnah.com reference : Book 19, Hadith 24Arabic/English book reference : Book 19, Hadith 1831

"Nice" hadith  ;)

Thanks Amra for sharing it! Please share more
