I believe reason at it`s utmost capacity, can understand Allah in many ways. Some things may not be logically accessible, such as certain facts about creation. I just discussed in another thread that God was 50.000 years above creation. I don`t see how you can arrive at that logically. So, this is revealed.

Peace.

Revealed to you personally or is it in the Quran or Hadith?

Ghazali seems known for the statement that a muslim "years for an ideal". And this supposedly supports sunna-thinking. He also stated that interpretation of Islam, should be "finalized" and probably is the reasons why many sectarians mean that no further interpretation of Islam should be done, and already existing schools of thoughts should be accepted.

To me, this represents utter stagnation. And his statement about an ideal, is idolatry. (Polytheism, reason for hellfire.)

Your last question, I think I would answer with: God is uncreated, The quran is a created book, that describes an uncreated God.

'Utter stagnation' is what the book thinks happened.

That's a big call, that one of the foremost Muslim thinker went to hell.

Do you think you can use reason to understand Allah?

Hi all,

I have just read a book that discusses this Islamic philosopher and claims that he and the Asharite school of thought was vastly influential on Islam from his time on.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghazali
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asharite

Are people aware of this man and the school?
Is he still revered within Islam?
And for a 3rd question is the Koran created or co-eternal with Allah?

Thx,

Woot

yes. It is all from Allah

Thanks. So you believe Allah told Gabriel who told Mohammad who recorded it all verbatim?

Is the Koran all from all Allah or is some of it from Gabriel, Mohammad, Jinn and so on? For instance is it claimed that every word in the Koran is directly what Allah told Gabriel to say to Mohammad verbatim?

God gave us a set of rituals to provide us a solid structure in life and unite believers on earth. Rituals are worthless if we do not glorify God sincerily.

Why does God need you to perform rituals? What worth are they? Do you honestly think you are doing something that appeases God?

Matrimony / Re: Are temporary marriages really part of Islam?

The expiry date should be initially agreed on by both parties. If you had no idea when it was going to end and  itcame as a surprise then you haven't been in a temporary (Mut3ah) marriage. You have only been mocked.

Misfar is not the same as Mut3ah.
There is also another thing that is called Al Misyar.

What is a temporary marriage for? How do you express your love fully in a temporary marriage?

Hey just another thought popped into my head.

Are Muslims that were married on Earth still married in Paradise?

Personally I agree. Freedom is more important than security and searching people without probable cause is a massive invasion of privacy. In any case I think it is tantamount to letting the terrorists win.

One thing that I am struck by is that early Muslims must have had a huge inferiority complex concerning Christianity. This must be the reason for the second coming myth and attributing miracles to Muhammad (as well as the above) that one can read about in the hadith.

I think so as well.
