  1. Your daily dose of humour.
  2. أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ "(Is it not Allah) who answers the distressed one when he calls upon Him and removes the evil?" [Qur'an 27:62]
  3. If 65.8 million votes aren't enough to stop Trump from taking office, what benefit is there in a petition with 200,000 signatures?
  4. This is the same as what @Ozzy has just said.
  5. Do you mean a third eye as in the literal presence of an invisible eye in one's forehead, or simply the figurative term for possessing baseerah?
  6. @realizm Some have said that isma is less about 'infallibility' and more about being 'protected' by Allah. Perhaps @Ozzy can elaborate more on this, but I think this translation is key for you to understand that the 'sinlessness' of Prophets is reconcilable with their humanity and mortality.
  7. This especially:
  8. Pfft, says the guy who's just found out about 6 months late.
  9. Damn. Pics or it didn't happen.
  10. You're not saying that Prophets or a'immah sin, are you? Because there is a clear distinction between sin and tark al-awla when it comes to infallibles.
  11. When a person adopts a new philosophy, as is the case with Wilayat al-Faqih in Pakistan (most who believe in it come to do so of their own accord, rather than being born into it), it's not uncommon for them to fall into the extreme end of the spectrum and become dogmatic. This is accentuated by the fact that this is a religious matter, and religious extremism has become somewhat of a trend in our world. In short, there will always be individuals who believe in exclusionism in matters of religion. This is nothing new. What is surprising however, is that you seem to truly believe that takfir is a tenet of belief of most WF-supporting Muslims.
  12. Some people here seem to be restricting the benefits of doing hijab to the individual, saying that it does nothing to change their sins 'in private.' What about the societal effects of having an entire population adhere to Islamic dress codes in public? After all, whenever the Qur'an discusses hijab, it does so in relation to how other people view those who do hijab, not an individual's own sense of piety or holiness. "And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their khimār over their breasts and not display their beauty except to their husband, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons ....and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments." [24:31] "Those who harass believing men and believing women undeservedly, bear (on themselves) a calumny and a grievous sin. O Prophet! Enjoin your wives, your daughters, and the wives of true believers that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): That is most convenient, that they may be distinguished and not be harassed." [33:58-59] The reason given for the commandment to do hijab is societal in its very nature, and has less to do with an individual's 'Islamicness' or quantity of sins. So to say that hijab shouldn't be enforced because "you can't force piety on someone" is to ignore the reasoning behind the commandment, and the fact that the hijab ruling is inherently one of social relations with other people.
  13. What a personality. Not everyone can step into the middle of a fight like that and persuade everyone to make peace.
  14. Someone a 'Abu Zayn', now?
