Peace,

Would it be logical to say that a 'translation' of the Quran from it's original Arabic to English is inaccurate and corrupted because the translated version obviously loses the essence of the scripture?

I think experts in Quranic Arabic would answer this question best.

Peace,

I agree, if the word is left as 'jinn', then the seeker will find the meaning for the word themselves within the Quran.

What is the nature of God? / Creation Ex-Nihilo?
« on: April 05, 2006, 07:55:55 AM »
Peace,

What's wrong with the logic? The Most High created creation out of nothing, God is separate from us and we have been given the ability to follow our imagination with control (as Ayman's recent articles state) or without control.

To learn how to control we learn, by living and trial and error, until we get results that are pleasing to the Most High.

I personally think the scriptures tells us a bit more than that, although it sounds logical to me but I think it's up to the seeker to search further to complement that understanding because Scripture says a lot more.

Peace,

Doesn't the Most High remind us in the Scripture to not worry too much about what we consume but to be concerned more with good deeds as opposed to bad deeds.

General Issues / Questions / Coca Cola
« on: February 08, 2006, 11:20:43 AM »
Peace,

Although I don't drink coca cola because I don't have caffeinated drink I personally am not convinced that coca cola is some sort of deadly drink.

I haven't heard of any cases of people suffering from problems caused by coca cola, I don't think my government would keep this drink legalised if it was this harmful because it would cause the NHS problems, more problems caused than solved.  I personally am not convinced about the snake oil.  The only evidence I see is that it has a lot sugar and caffeine and all that is written on the back and the drinker can  taste it when they consume the drink, so as far as I am concerned people know very well what they are drinking.  Lots of sugar and caffeine.

Lots of sugar and caffeine and poor knowledge about what is good for our body and not is deadly.

Snake oil can be used to clean ball bearings and be used in significant amounts to produce this popular drink? A bit far fetched at the moment because there is no evidence of the harms of snake oil being present.

I have read a book about coca cola, there journey to globalistation was a long and tough one, it used to contain cocaine in it's original recipe until cocaine was made illegal.  a Dr Pemberton made the recipe, many tried to compete with similar colas but they were simply not that good.  

I personally am trying a few herbal teas by Twinings at the moment, they use herbs that have been used for centuries for aiding digestion, relaxation etc.  There are different varieties for different purposes, caffeine free too.  They also have antioxidants which are really good for the body.

I think you should post this in the code 19 section of this forum, they might have something to say, they like numbers.

General Issues / Questions / Who exactly are the 'people of the book?'
« on: February 06, 2006, 10:46:25 AM »
Peace,

So basically the people of the book is a universal term used to describe any groups of people or class as being the educated ones of their time?

Makes a lot of sense.

Idolfree, I also like your explanation about being 'awakened', it is very similar to being 'educated' but is not the same, one can be awake and responsive to the the signs of the Most High whereas the educated people have bad people amongst them.  I think educated fits the verse better because the term awake symbolically might be used to describe a purer state and this wouldn't fit the verse because it doesn't describe the group of people as accurately as the word educated.

General Issues / Questions / The Alcohol debate - new insight.
« on: January 18, 2006, 05:58:13 PM »
Peace truth,

Very interesting, the meaning derived has more significance in terms of guidance and how to reach eternal bliss.

Drinking is an issue where individuals can use common sense but the mention of hiding motives and taking life too easy is interesting because there should be no reason for a person to hide their motives and goals because they fear none but the Most High.  

Hiding motives causes problems for people because they cover the truth with lies, it's a tainted lifestyle and can haunt a person trying to be truthful.

General Issues / Questions / World War III
« on: November 29, 2005, 01:16:19 PM »
Peace,

What that doctrine of lucifer thing about? sounds like some small underground wierd stuff just fabricated to put fear in people, people shouldn't fear but our governments think different.

The worlds current situation has been chaotic for a long time, the fighting, the racism, the illegal killings of women, children and elderly.

Trouble in Africa, trouble in the middle east and now there's trouble in the west with all these suicide bombings and the crime isn't getting any better either!

I come to conclude that this is how the world is all the time, battle against two sides, opposing forces.  In every example (prophets) within the scripture there is trouble within the communities, whether it is a small community or this global community it doesn't make a difference.  Scriptures tell us that God grants victory for the 'believers' (define this term however you will), im just calm to know that good always wins against evil (maybe thats foolish but thats how I am!).

I personally don't like the way people easily label the enemy as one simple entity whether it be Zionists or Islamists, but I think that the enemy is within all our communities, many prophets and messengers were saved from their own communities when the retribution comes and the retribution comes for every community and none can stop that.

This third world war is unclear to me, its hard to see who is in the right because politicians are sneaky and they keep the people in the dark, and when they trust them they sometimes put them in wars for no necessary or reasonable reason and obviously no apparent reasons are given, only propaganda for the people.
