General Issues / Questions / Re: Most people will go to Hell

I agree with you here about some things. Even before writing my question, I did not believe every sunni or every jew, christian etc.  would go to hell. It depends on their specific beliefs and how they lived their lives, if they're rejecters after information received, signs, warnings etc.

God is not so shallow that He would punish people who, despite believing in God and doing good all their lives, simply didn't accept the Qur'an. Please see verse 2:112 which also supports this.

are you sure? Please explain further. The 2 sentences you mentioned are quite different i.e. not the same sentence at all.

For example, traditional Sunnis may 'mislead from God's path' using Hadith, but it doesn't necessarily mean all Sunnis are destined for Hell. It depends on how they lived their lives. The same applies to non-Muslims according to 2:62 and 5:69.

The verse you are probably referring to, verse 6:116, does not actually say "most people are destined for Hell". It says 'they will mislead you from God's path', which doesn't necessarily mean they're all going to Hell.

The verse after that, 6:117, agrees with what good logic said above.

General Issues / Questions / Re: Is what I am doing wrong/ haram

There is nothing wrong or Haram about treating people with justice. Your behaviour towards these people is in a way serving justice for their bad treatment and injustice toward you. I would further suggest considering switching jobs if possible, to eliminate the toxic environment and to fully go 'no contact' with these people as you mentioned. I understand that this is not always simple to do, but sometimes it is the only solution.

To clarify the title of this thread, human beings are the most intelligent species. It is only by divine inspiration and permission that we are able to achieve many of the life-changing discoveries and inventions, which otherwise may have seemed impossible.

Peace everyone,

Questions/Comments on the Quran / Re: Can you eat Monkey?
« on: June 09, 2020, 05:03:17 PM »
it is not just “good food” regarding nourishments

amongst the other forbidden (such as swine, blood, etc) food that has not been dedicated to The God is also forbidden. my understanding is that when someone kills an animal for food and does not mention The God’s name over it when killing it and thanking The God as well, then eating that animal is grave sin as it was not dedicated to The God ! my understanding is that satan dupes people into not mentioning the name of The God when milling animals for food (ans when eating anything)


What has the question of eating monkeys got to do with dedication to idols? These are two separate issues.

As per verse 5:4, only 'good food' may be considered suitable for human consumption. It would therefore depend on the overall benefit in terms of nourishment and risks of disease to human health.

I know many good people who because of the non translated words of
"Muslim" "Islam" and Allah do not get counted among us submitters.
The translators have done a disservice to mankind knowingly or unknowingly.

It is often overlooked that these are non-English words at all. English is a fully capable language, so it's not necessary to use Arabic replacements in English sentences.

'Muslim' is an Arabic word which in the Qur'an is meant in the literal/descriptive sense of 'one who has submitted/surrendered to God'. It is never intended as a static label of identification in a foreign language as it is used today.
