Health & Fitness / Re: Please pray for coronavirus/covid19 to go away

This entire thing is very circumspect.

My friend's friend (who lives in China) told him this morning that lots of young people have died from this - including those with no previous adverse medical history.

I don't follow the news and have only really found out how big this is a couple of days ago. Seriously though, people need to get a grip.

Salaam,

Salaam Es,
yes, you're right. In terms of the signs, it could be anything. But to communicate with God (His messages), it is in the form of writing.

Peace



Perhaps I'm not intelligent enough to grasp your point (which is entirely possible and possibly the most plausible explanation! ), however, can "signs" not be a method of "communication"?

Thank you.

Peace.

Sajda.

It does not always have to be Al Qur'an, but also the previous scriptures. But certainly it must be in the form of writing.

96:4   The One who taught by the pen.
96:5   He taught the human being what he did not know.

and surely we will understand,

27:92   "And that I recite the Qur'an." He who is guided is guided for himself, and to he who is misguided, say: "I am but one of the warners."
27:93   Say: "Praise be to God, He will show you His ayatihi (signs) and you will know them. And your Lord is not unaware of what you do."

if we are patient enough to wait for a best explanation to come,

25:33   And for every example they come to you with, We bring you the truth and the best explanation.


There was a time when God spoke directly to humans, but not anymore. This has been written in ancient books,

2 Esdras
Chapter 1

35 Your houses will I give to a people that shall come; which not having heard of me yet shall believe me; to whom I have shewed no signs, yet they shall do that I have commanded them.

36 They have seen no prophets, yet they shall call their sins to remembrance, and acknowledge them.

37 I take to witness the grace of the people to come, whose little ones rejoice in gladness: and though they have not seen me with bodily eyes, yet in spirit they believe the thing that I say.

Be happy in your faith..

Peace

Why must it be in writing? Surely God shows his signs in various forms?

Peace.

Why are you in so much denial about your sexuality even after all this time?

Salaam,

May there be peace upon those who read this.

I go by the username keno a sort of anagram of joken a name which was given to me by my third-cousin at a young age. I wont go into much detail about my personal story, I do however write this in order to relfect upon what happened when I was first introduced to God and the events that lead shortly after.

I met a man in 2015, he was dealing in marijuana and considered himself a free thinker and a muslim. We hit it off and had many evenings where we talked about God, society and life. After a while I moved in with him and suddenly found myself calling to God and acknowledging him. Some time after I developed a psychosis, according to the psychiatrist anyway,I heard an awesome voice of might that wasn't there and it said "You have to understand" repeatedly and concluded that I had to fast for 40 days. I did so, but stopped at 37 days. During the whole time I prepared to pilgrimage on foot from where I live. I got about 1 km outside my home and ended upon a roof and jumped about 20 meters down convinced that angels would catch me. I broke a lot of bones and stayed 8 months in hospital.

That my backstory, after my injuries I have become stagnant, but God never took his eye off me and he has lead me to his book. I often despair, lose hope and try to seek help in others, but ultimatly God is the Helper, the Wise. He saved me in that fall, and has since showered me with both good times and some affliction. I hope to educate my family about my experience and my(and our and all mankinds) doctrine.

I hope to have the courage to talk to you guys and share ideas and ponder about the word of God. God willing.

Peace.

God bless you, my brother.

Peace.

Salaam,

I know there are members from Sweden in here. I am going to be in Sweden next month, and a few other places, and was wondering whether I might bump into any "QA Muslims".

Salaam.

Sajda.

I love this guy, and have been praying for him.

Having just read this news,  I  will write to the Saudi Embassy in London tomorrow, insha'Allah.

Matrimony / Re: LGBT: Seeking a life partner
« on: September 14, 2018, 03:56:15 PM »
Peace,

I am quite surprised at the inquisition which this post has inspired. I am further surprised at the grace with which "bookish" has handled the intrusion into his personal life.

Perhaps it would be far more prudent to take this debate elsewhere, and it would constitute better manners to not ask such personal questions of someone who has posted on here looking for a partner  - not for judgment.

Peace.

Sajda.
