  1. This is interesting. I read the translation of the Surah from ayah 100 till 110. It's talking about some hypocrites from the Bedouins, and some from Medina, who made a mosque, and Allah forbade praying in it. Who were these people? And was the mosque abolished? And [there are] those [hypocrites] who took for themselves a mosque for causing harm and disbelief and division among the believers and as a station for whoever had warred against Allah and His Messenger before. And they will surely swear, "We intended only the best." And Allah testifies that indeed they are liars. - 9:107
  2. Brother I think you should forgive, completely try and forget the past, and marry her. Go to pilgrimage with her, and make a happy family. Seriously... Just do it! Don't waste time! I'm sure her father will be a big support for you May Allah bless you.
  3. Dealing with Autism

    I would check out Camel Milk. Google Camel Milk and autism....
  4. The first underlined and bold point is a serious problem. Following pornstars (as well as following and liking the other slutty girls at uni) will probably cause big issues later in marriage. He may divert his attention away from your sister to other girls. This is something which should be addressed and solved, as brother @AmirAlmuminin Lover said that the girl should first speak to him about this. This leads me on to the second bullet point. Your sister tried to speak to him about this, he yelled and called this nonsense. This will give you a clue about what it will be like after marriage - he will probably behave this way with other issues, The last bold and underlined point. Well that is usually a hit and miss. Unfortunately many times families say a boy is good, but he may in reality be a complete ass (religiously and in worldly affairs). Please be advised i am not a marriage counsellor, so consult your parents.
  5. Quran translation

    @Hameedeh Oh i see! Did not notice that, thanks for the heads up. @Gaius I. Caesar Thanks for the recommendations. The one by Talal certainly looks interesting, i am going to order this one. I already have the one by Yusuf Ali, i agree that a few thy's and thou's will not impede anyone's understanding, but i think i did not communicate clearly or properly in my first post - by 'easy to read' what i actually meant is i am getting tired of all the thy's and thou's!! I just want a translation as if Allah is speaking to me in today's language (21st/22nd century English). I got about 100 pages into the Yusuf Ali edition but i stopped... i want to read one where i feel as if i'm having a conversation with Allah.... don't know if that's possible but let's see with the Talal translation. Thanks.
  6. Salaam all, Any recommendations as to an English version of the Quran that is easy to read (not Shakespeare English!), is not liberal and neither changes the true meaning of the Quran? I know there is an old thread on this, however i want your views on Mohsin Khan's translation https://www.amazon.co.uk/TRANSLATION-MEANINGS-NOBLE-ENGLISH-LANGUAGE/dp/B06XJ67Z2Y/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1512149606&sr=1-6&refinements=p_27%3ADr+Muhammad+Muhsin+Khan This translation seems eloquent, is not old English, neither liberal. Just thought i'd get more views on this translation before i order it. Thanks
  7. going to a gay wedding

    Just attending that wedding is almost like accepting and encouraging this sin. This is not a small thing... Seriously! I would strongly advise against going.
  8. Iblis in Sufism

    Erm. It is acceptable because it is what Allah has said? The real question is, why is what Allah says unacceptable to you?
  9. Iblis in Sufism

    No, there is only one God, and i am say that since you and i both believe in the same God (assuming you are muslim), then i can paraphrase what i said as 'our God'. Secondly i followed by with "Your God, and My God" with a comma and with Allah, further stating and confirming that we have the same God.
  10. Iblis in Sufism

    I think you really are trying to stretch and twist the words of Allah very very much. Very much indeed. Your God, and my God, Allah, has made clear what happened. Now the rest you can assume and imagine.
  11. Iblis in Sufism

    In reference to your point in bold; is Allah's explanation too weak for you in the Quran? Which we have pasted many times above. In terms of the rest, well there are many people who know the power of God and pray but yet still sin or go astray at some point - Do they sin out of love? Do they go astray out of love???
  12. Iblis in Sufism

    Let me reply with Quranic verse. Yusuf Ali Not so Iblis: he was haughty, and became one of those who reject Faith. Sahih International Except Iblees; he was arrogant and became among the disbelievers. Shakir But not Iblis: he was proud and he was one of the unbelievers. Pickthall Saving Iblis; he was scornful and became one of the disbelievers. Now let me make clear, there are people i've bumped into people in my lifetime who see the truth, yet no matter much they know it's the truth, they do not acknowledge it is the truth.There is too much pride and arrogance and ego to accept it. Families will break up, divorces will happen, murders will be committed, yet they will not accept the truth. So really, i do not see why you are trying to jump to great lengths to make things up, when the Lord of the universe himself has told us he is our open enemy, a kaafir, arrogant etc. Really.
  13. Iblis in Sufism

    Asad : [And God] said: "What has kept thee from prostrating thyself when I commanded thee?" Answered [Iblis]: "I am better than he: Thou hast created me out of fire, whereas him Thou hast created out of clay." Malik : Allah said: "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?" He replied: "I am better than he; you created me from fire and him from clay." Pickthall : He said: What hindered thee that thou didst not fall prostrate when I bade thee? (Iblis) said: I am better than him. Thou createdst me of fire while him Thou didst create of mud. Yusuf Ali : (Allah) said: "what prevented thee from bowing down when I commanded thee?" He said: "I am better than he: thou didst create me from fire and him from clay."
  14. Iblis in Sufism

    With the greatest amount of respect, have you even read the Quran? I just cannot get my mind around this. God ASKS iblees why he did not follow the command. And We have certainly created you, [O Mankind], and given you [human] form. Then We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam"; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was not of those who prostrated. The the devil TELLS his side if the story, [ Allah ] said, "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?" [Satan] said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay." Please read the above, and i look forward to what you have to say in response to this.
  15. Iblis in Sufism

    See this http://holywatcher.narod.ru/iblis.pdf Very dangerous path. They keep saying that Iblis did not prostrate because he did not want to worship other than Allah. However the Quran, and Iblis' response in the Quran is not so! Iblis says in the Quran that he did not prostrate because Adam a.s. was made of 'mud' ... in essence saying he is higher... or in other terminology known as 'Racism' and Arrogance. So why and where on earth are these people forcing the image that Iblis acted out of love for God?? Completely absurd. @Haydar Husayn
