General Issues / Questions / Islam, Homosexuality & the People of Lot

Salaamun alaikum Afdhere,

You may remember me from the Progressive Muslims list. I find it strange sir, that you had the impulse to 'reevaluate' the qisaas of Lut since you were content to accept the corpus of hadith and seera literature as 'imperfect but perfect in its imperfection'. Why is Lut's tale up for reevaluation but not the story of Muhammad himself?

On to your interpretation:

You say that they did not accept Lot's offer to take his daughters instead of the visiting angels because they already had azwaaj. If this was the case, why were they going after the angels anyway?

thank you.

Islamic Constitution / ON WHICH TERRITORY?

Salaamun alaikum,

There are indeed many paths which Allah offers us. Please see 29/69, look out for the word 'pathS'.

In my reading, I believe our relationship with the Quran to be as such:

1. If we read Quran but inspiration (wahi) hasn't come to us, we may accept or reject it.

2. If we read Quran and inspiration comes to us that this is from Allah and we reject it, then we are in disbelief.

To Mr Delusions, the concepts which Allah gave us through the Quran are tools. These tools will help us in life and increase our standing with Allah. However, if a person goes through life without these tools, then Allah judges him based on what is in his heart.

many thanks and peace
