Thanks, "But ye will not, except as Allah wills; for Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom."

does it mean God only is, seperation of self is an illusion?
Salam, dear brother!
This simply means that Allah's will is ever stronger/overwhelming. See 8:30 also for better understanding.
Peace!

Hi, I'm new to the forum, came across free-minds website recently while started learning quran, a lot of things dont make any sense as I'm mostly ignorant of the language of quran, I try to make sense whatever I understand, in the following verse and many others like it, does god is saying He guides those who want guidance or does he saying He guides those whomever He wishes?

قل لله المشرق والمغرب يهدي من يشاء إلى صراط مستقيم

the way I made sense of it is: "all directions go toward god but whomever wants a straight path will be guided towards it"

peace
Salam!
Your answer is in 76:30.
Peace!

Salam!
I want to say that stop shedding the blood. Stop killing living beings.
When you eat meat, is it alive or 'already dead'?
Peace!

Salam!
You need to eat for survival so eat whatever you need. Why say halal and/or haram then?
Keep on shedding the blood and corrupting the earth.
Peace!

salam tellmethetruth

thank you for your reply

1) mentioning the name of God when killing animals is to thank Him and acknoweldge that He creates them (and everything else)

2) we dont slaughter them for us or our family as in our glory .. no one has any glory as all glory belongs to The God ... humans slaughter animals to eat and so they could live an extra day non? we supposed to not eat animals or fruits etc?
vivons d’amour et d’eau fraiche alors :) lol

what is your point? lol

peace my friend

salam tellmethetruth

killing animals is a corruption?

are we not told by God that we could eat from their meat and ride on them etc and that we should not eat of them if they were not dedicated to Him?

peace
Salam, dear tutti frutti!
In my previous post/answer, I have given references from Quran and you may verify.
Animals are also Allah's creations as we are. For example:
[6:38] Saheeh International
And there is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing. Then unto their Lord they will be gathered.
are they not living beings like us? They have red blood as we have, they breathe like us, they bear children like us. (The only difference is of intelligence level, which is Ruh from Allah. 15:29 and 38:79. Note روحی My Ruh is used in first person.)
1) If you dedicate an animal to Allah by mentioning His name on them then why you or other people eat from them? Will you not become partners of Allah? On the other hand, Allah does not need Rizq from us.
2) If you kill animals for youself or your family/people then it becomes اھل لغیر اللہ (i.e., killed for other than Allah) so it would be haram.
Allah has told what you can eat from animals. Refer to Quran I6:66.
Peace!

TellMeTheTruth, for the sake of your name, Allah is presented in the quran as the "true god", while other gods of the region are presented as false gods (allat, uza, manat). Another thing is the pre-islamic rituals done to the false gods (or any god for that matter) like animal sacrifice carried over to the god of the quran. But also pre-islamic local beliefs like the invisible desert dwellers (the Jinn) who were not mentioned in the previous abrahamic religions. So you make of that what you will. Also correct me if I'm wrong.
Salam, dear brother!
A god is a god. You believe in one god because you believe that he/she/it is the true god. Similarily someone else bielieves in another god because he/she believes that his/her god is the true god. You will call others' god as a false god and they will call your god a false god.
Allah tells in quran that they will never follow your qibla and you will never follow their qibla. And that is due to the above-mentioned reason.
Pre-islamic Arabs worshipped a god called Allah. Do you worship the same Allah? Or some other Allah? Which Allah is a true god?
In Quran 6:154 [Saheeh International]
Then We gave Moses the Scripture, making complete [Our favor] upon the one who did good and as a " detailed explanation of all things and as guidance and mercy " that perhaps in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord they would believe.
Secondly, it is true that pre-islamic rituals are added up in deen.
Well, why not fully detailed book given to moses, had no mention of desert-dwelling djinns? Let's tell Allah that He forgot to mention something in His previous scriptures (استعذ باللہ).
I will appreciate your answer if you also give references from Quran in support.
Peace!

yea the blood flesh doesnt reach Him but our piety does ... when we slaighter animals or eat of anything we mention Him and give thanks .. that is prt of worshipping Him
Salam!
Piety? What is its definition?
Killing a living being by mentioning His name is not killing?
Allah says in Al-Quran 5:32 that:
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a "soul" unless for a "soul" or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain "mankind" entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.
Which "soul"? If you kill an animal for yourself and for your people then why mention His name?
Al-Quran 2:205
And when he goes away, he strives throughout the land to cause corruption therein and destroy crops and animals. And Allah does not like corruption.
Peace!

hello,

I was reading this verse,  فَالْيَوْمَ نَنسَاهُمْ كَمَا نَسُواْ لِقَاءَ يَوْمِهِمْ 7:51 people who forgot god in this world god will forget them in the hereafter, and thinking 'can god forget?'
Salam!
Question should be "can Allah forget? Answer is Yes! He will forget people similarily as they used to forget Him. and this is Allah's own words in Al-Quran 7:51. If you cannot or don't want to believe His words then who would you believe?
Peace!
