Is there an "introduction of ideas " section ?
« on: January 26, 2005, 09:37:20 AM »
there is much here to read.. but I got very confused because I read many different understandings for Hajj, salat and Ramadan, etc.

What is the best way to learn about the beliefs of Quran only, the way that is least shocking to a new comers system ?

Has anyone written up an introduction of ideas for new comers ?

Joe,
I skimmed through the link you posted, it has lots of Quran ayahs I need to read in context. Thank you for giving me a place to start my reading.

I was a bit concerned by this section, as I am confused by the ayah posted and its connection to  " why all Muslims have been losing"

>>THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION

Do you realize now why all the Muslims have been losing?

Do you realize why GOD has abandoned these people?

??. And fulfil your part of the covenant, that I fulfil My part of the covenant, and reverence Me.? (2:40)
<<<

So I turned to my Quran to read the ayah in context and it seems directed at the Children of Israel.

Is this section of that link you posted,  saying the Children of Israel are Muslims ?

Peace be with you SilentSalaam,

I'm happy to see you here.  :D

There are plenty more people here than at moslem.org, but I still hope you keep in mind what I said to you at moslem.org.....we should always strive to look for the answers ourselves and ask "GOD" to guide us as this is His Deen that He has mandated for us.

As far as introduction.....I think the homepage to http://www.free-minds.org does an extremely sufficient job of Introducing the differences between Islam based on GOD Alone and the man-made hadithian religion we see nowadays.

I hope this helps you.

Peace be with you.

GOD Alone/Quran Alone,
Damon.

Peace Silent,

The best way is to simply take the information and disect it the way you have done (admirably) in the link that was given to you...

Trust no one but God for guidance...It may take weeks or months or years, but you will find all the answers that you seek.

As for an intro to Islam, simple: 6:151-153
`And when God Alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter are filled with aversion; and when others are mentioned beside Him, they rejoice!` (The Quran 39:45)

Salaams silent,
                      somethings which i have learnt over the year through my research with the help of the topics at free minds.



Those are the succesfull who;

Believe in God and the Last Day.
Fulfill Haqooq-Al-ebad (Obligations towards fellow human beings ) -  righteousness.

Description : Haqooqul Ebad, Haqooquz Zojain, Haqooqul Walidain, Haqooqul Aulad .e.t.c

Fulfill  Haqooq Allah (Obligations to God - is just one?.The encouragement of Haqooq al-ebad.) That is through advicing/debating/arguing/ ?Hajj ,and lastly (when there is a need) by the use of force-Hajj-e-Akbar.

If you find you are off this track at any time ? then you must abstain/fast for a number of days so you may get back on track.

But we should always:
Serve Allah by serving his attributes/or doing as his attributes.
And this can be done far far better through education hence education is of primary concern.

Focus on the Masjid al haram ? law ,prevents us breaking it thus stops us from taking everybodies rights.
To be an angel is better then to be a shaitan/devil.
Healthy foods essential for ones betterment.
Hygien ? important for all socialising.
Salaat ? is part of righteousness ,and it is looking into the views of different peoples for the betterment i.e discussions/making of agreements/making of comittments  for common good.

Ati Azakaat ?fullfillament of the comittments agreed to in the salaat.




Salaams.
