  1. Devolution

    What you say makes sense, the only thing I can kinda disagree with is point 3. Technically the fruit from the tree was not haram, Allah just told Adam not to eat from it, but other than that I %100 get what you mean.
  2. Some Etiquettes when talking about Religion

    Thank you very much!
  3. Some Etiquettes when talking about Religion

    Oh for sure man, especially because you requested it and I really love the topic.
  4. when all your msn contacts are offline...

    What happened to Alifbot? I can't find "him" anywhere, he's not on al-islam.org anymore.
  5. I’m gonna start this off by telling a story that happened recently. See there’s a chat room that I like to go to, it’s a Catholic site but all religions are allowed. I haven’t been on the chat for about half a year to a year, so I decided to pop in and see how were the people. So when I got on some people were exclaiming how socialism and liberalism was evil and the work of Satan. Now I decided to ask a question, “Wouldn’t Jesus be considered liberal at the time? And didn’t he share some merits of socialism?” Oh boy, I sure caused a commotion, one person said, “That’s stupid, where would you ever get such a dumb idea from?” So I decided to list the reason: Jesus went around healing people for free Jesus took care of the weak Jesus was against capitalism (The time he kicked a bunch of merchants out of the temple) Jesus hated rich people So then I got more hate, but there was one comment that just threw me off, “Jesus didn’t hate the rich!” Really? Matthew 19:24: Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." Mark 10:25: It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." Luke 18:25: Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." And there are so many other examples. Now me personally, when I hear someone say that a it’s easier than to fit a large mammal into a tiny thing you use for sewing than it is for a rich dude to enter Heaven, that seems to me (and again, maybe it’s just me) that that person has a bit of a disdain for rich people. Basically the point of the story is to illustrate the ignorance some people have on their own religion. But if you think that’s all I gotta say, then you’re gonna make me cry because that means you don’t you know me. :c Now when you’re talking about someone about their religion, I recommend to try not being insulting. Now asking questions is really good, I support asking question. But when you ask a question wait until the person is done before you all of a sudden say, “Oh yeah?! What about this, this, and that?” Now I feel like in my last blog I talked a lot about people got things about Islam really wrong, so I’m not really going to go into it this time. I just erased a big part here, I talked about people who believe stuff like “Spirit Science” and stuff related to that nonsense, I don’t mean to bash but c’mon. I erased it because I’m gonna make it it’s own entry. And as I write this I realize how disconnected this blog entry is going to seem, so I guess I’m gonna end it here. So now the (new) whole point of this blog entry was two things: 1) Don’t be ignorant about something before you say other people are wrong, and 2) Be kind and polite full, it sucks to say but for the most part, you are the face of Islam when you talk to someone. So unless you want Islam to be seen as rude and disrespectful don’t act rude and disrespectful. Final Message: I’m not the happiest on how this entry turned out, it was supposed to be a lot longer but because I realized not all the themes matched I had to cut it short. So expect a couple of new entries this week. And the last thing I wanna do is comment on the last blog’s poll. For all you people who voted for “milk first and cereal,” I don’t know how you can sleep at night, you monsters.
  6. Kid in a candy store?

    In front of the fridge.
  7. is circumcision still necessary ?

    Circumcision is part of Allah's covenant with us. Think about the anceint people, they didn't have modern science with them, so a circumcision was much more of a big deal. But even though circumcision isn't a concern nowadays we still continue it becuase we are still in Allah's covenant. Don't be like the Christians who say circumcision isn't required. Hope this helps!
  8. Devolution

    I'm confused, I was always taught that Adam was kicked out of Heaven to Earth, I thought only Jews and Christians say Eden was on Earth.
  9. Devolution

    I know this isn't 100% related but I thought it would be interesting to mention. Some Biblical scholars believe that when Adam and Eve (I say Eve and not Hawwa because the story in the Bible, Eden/Paradise is on Earth but in Islam Adam and Hawwa lived in Jannah and were kicked out of it to Earth) were kicked out of the Garden is a allegory for when humans stopped being hunter-gatherers and began planting food. It's actually a pretty cool theory. I know there are many Muslims who say that (macro) evolution is alluted to in the Quran. My older brother gave me a quick summary of the theory but not a lot of detail. I personally believe that micro evolution makes sense with the story of Adam. And by the way, your article is written very well and is impressive. Good job!
  10. Quran's relevancy

    Ah the ol' "kill them where every you find them," quote. One of the most out-of-context verses people like to use. Before I answer your question just know them for future reference: 2:190 Fight in the way of God those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. God does not like transgressors.2:191 And kill them wherever you find them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah [Persecution] is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.2:192 And if they cease, then indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful.2:193 Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah [Persecution] and [until] worship is for God. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.2:194 [Fighting in] the sacred month is for [aggression committed in] the sacred month, and for [all] violations is legal retribution. So whoever has assaulted you, then assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you. And fear God and know that God is with those who fear Him.2:195 And spend in the way of God and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, God loves the doers of good. Basically this whole thing is talking about don't start the fight, don't do anything worse than what they did to you, and as soon as they stop you must also stop. Now on with your question, the Quran is still relevant. It teaches you morals, truth, God's Laws, history, and much more. Now some parts might not be relevant to your current situation, for example if I wanted to know who I can marry I wouldn't go to the "Rules of War" verses. All of it is relevant, but some parts maybe more relevant for your current situation/lifestyle/etc. Hope this helps!
  11. Aqidah

    There are a few ways to look at this. Scientifically we know that Allah cannot have a body like us, if you want I can explain why but it isn't really the point. The basic thing about Allah is that He is not a human, therefore He does not have the same attributes as a human. Another thing is Allah is everywhere but if He had a body he couldn't be everywhere, not to say He wouldn't know everything. Just know that we are lower beings than Allah, we can only see things through a certain point of view, but Allah is far more advanced/powerfull/etc. so He does not need the same requirments as us. We do not limit Allah by saying He can hear and see us. Hope this helps!
  12. Sin Written or Writtens?

    Thank you for the help, brother.
  13. Colors in islam

    For the most part, colors don't really mean anything. And the thing about colors bringing good luck and all that is just a superstitous belief. But if you wanna wear a certain color, I suggest green. The reason being that it was Prophet Muhammad's favorite color and it is the color most associated with Ahlubayt. Hope this helps!
  14. Masomeen

    Allah gave the ability to the Prophets and Imams not to sin is because they are role models. I was one time watching a lecture about comparing the prophets from the Bible and Quran and the lecturer made a very good point. "In the Bible Noah would get very drunk, Allah made him a leader of a nation but yet he gets drunk? I don't drink so why I don't be the leader of the nation?" The whole point is that these great men are our role models, and if they sin then we, the oridinary people, could justify doing that sin. Hopes this helps!
  15. Is anime haram

    If it has nudity in it, I think it's safe to say it's haraam. Also I'm linking this because the subjects are similar:
