  1. False Emotional Preaching: Lizzie Schofield at Speakers Corner
  2. Family Honor Killings

    No Muslim scholar of any note, either medieval or modern, has sanctioned a man killing his wife, daughter and sister for tarnishing her or the family's honor. Not a single one!

    If I remember correctly from our previous discussions, you mentioned that we have to "modify our scriptures" or beliefs. Such as acceptance of homosexuality and so forth since we live in this "modern world". Correct? My question pertains to this issue. Can liberal Christians give a rational reply of how the atonement isn't against human rationality and human rights and therefore isn't required to modify? Sacrifice is an act of killing, so how do liberal Christians not find this odd? Why not reject this so-called sacrifice? Isn't the Qur'aan more rational when it comes to sins? Repenting, turning back to God, not do the sin again and so forth. In what way has Jesus saved humanity? I'm not saved because I don't believe that he's god and I reject the Father who puts Jesus into this horrible situation. -- Child Abuse? Yes, and KKK differ with Protestant Christianity, but we can still say that it's Christianity then... since you took in Daesh and Boko Haram which no major Muslim scholar ever supported, in fact, published fataawas against them. What are the main tenets of Islam? You can check it out which are clearly mentioned in the Qur'aan. The belief in one God, his Messengers and Prophets, Angels, the DoJ, Salaat, Zakaat and so much more that we agree. However, Christians as a whole can't agree upon ONLY ONE TENET and that's the relationship between the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thus, Christianity itself is not a rational belief and to explain it away, the missionaries claim that the trinity is a mystery! Mystery means something that baffles understanding and cannot be explained.

    um, the knowledge about God being only one is not a disputed matter in Islam. While a scripture can be open to different interpretations, the main important things cannot be interpreted however we like. I've been debating Christians for five years many Christians committ heresies while explaining the trinity.

    The Quran agrees with much of Biblical thought. However, it also recognises some alteration by scribes et al (2:79), that some of the guidance was concealed / suppressed and where the Quran deems it appropriate to pass over / forgive other areas.005:015"O People of the Book, surely there has come to you our Messenger, making clear to you much of what you used to conceal (Arabic: tukh'funa) of the scripture and overlooking / forgiving much (Arabic: wa-ya'fu an kathiran). Surely has come to you from God a light and a clear book" The Arabic word 'tukh'funa' comes from the root KHA-FA-YA which carries the meaning of what is unapparent / has become imperceptible / has become dim to the sight / or suppressed, or obscured to the mind. It also carries the meaning of something which has become 'concealed'. Therefore, the Quran within context of its Arabic usage clearly recognised that certain aspects of the previous scriptures had become gradually concealed and deemed it fit to expound on some of them. It was also not the intention of the Quran to deal with each and every narrative of the Bible hence the term 'wa-yafu an kathiran' (forgive, pardon, pass over, relinquish or remit a whole or part or indeed pardon much).

    There is no mention of the birth of a new child. Now it can be strongly argued that Isaac (pbuh)was not a born 'Prophet' (unlike Jesus) but acquired his wisdom in later years much like many other prophets such as Prophets Joseph, Moses, Muhammad (pbut) and Abraham (pbuh)himself. Therefore, the lack of a name in verse 37.101 is firmly in keeping with the fact that no name had been given at this stage, nor had he attained to Prophethood or was 'confirmed' as being of the 'Saliheen' (righteous). With a view to elaborate the latter point with regards 'Saliheen', if we reanalyse verse 37.101, when a male child's birth is confirmed, there is still no confirmation whether he would be of the righteous 'Saliheen'. The only confirmation that is given is that he would be a child that would be ready to suffer and forbear (Arabic: Halimin). Note there is a difference between 'Saliheen' (of the righteous) and 'Halimin' (that are ready to suffer, forbear, are clement or patient). 037.101 "So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear (Arabic: Halimin)" However, in verse 37.112 we specifically note the confirmation of the request made in Prophet Abraham's (pbuh) original prayer (37.100). Not only is confirmation being given with regards a character, 'Saliheen', which was the original request Prophet Abraham (pbuh)made, but also one of 'prophethood'. Therefore, it appears from context, that these confirmations constitute the 'Basharna' (good news) and not the coming of a new child. FINAL THOUGHTS The second good news (taken sequentially) does not necessarily inform the reader of the birth of a new child, but rather gives further glad tidings with regards an existing child named 'Isaac'. If both verse 37.101 and 37.112 are compared, the similarity is noted. The first being that the good news was of a boy in verse 37.101. The second good news was that of Isaac (pbuh)(the same boy) who was now chosen to become a Prophet and was confirmed as being one of the righteous (Saliheen). The latter of course, being what Prophet Abraham (pbuh) actually prayed for in his original prayer (i.e. a child that is righteous (Saliheen)) in verse 37.100. Furthermore, if the contrary position is to be accepted (i.e. the sacrificial son was Prophet Ishmael (pbuh)), it becomes difficult to reconcile why a name would be necessary in 37.112 when it is absent in 37.101, if both verses are capturing the birth of new children. In this way and given the discussions above, the whole narrative captured in (37.100 - 113) would be with regards Prophet Isaac, (pbuh) the son that Prophet Abraham (pbuh) saw in a dream to be sacrificed.

    I believe the Gospels are "corrupted" from a theological perspective. The belief that Jesus is god is a wrong interpretation that has crept into the Bible by using few verses, although the Qur'aan is still recognizing the gospels as genuine and confirms it many times. It confirms the story of Lot (a.s.), the Virgin birth, Noah's (a.s.) ark and the flood, the battle between Pharaoh and Moses (a.s.) and Abraham accepting the task of sacrificing Isaac, Jesus doing miracles by the permission of God etc.

    Andres, in this "modern" world abortion is lawful -- killing babies is lawful, so liberals are screaming pro-choice. What's been changed if we make a distinction between ancient people who killed babies or let me give you an another example -- The pagan Arabs who buried their daughters alive and people of today who want to make abortion legit, a pro-choice? Ancient people used to kill children outside of the womb and we describe it today as 'barbarism'. The Qur'aan mentions females being buried alive and then the narrative continues to the day of judgement, she will ask her parents for what crime she was murdered. At this moment we have a sophisticated way of murdering babies. Yep. We have technology, science and so forth. But, hello... it's still barbarity. Only the procedure of how it's done has changed. It's still barbaric. So, how do you tackle this issue? Should we modify our Qur'anic interpretation for allowing abortions and pro-choice? The Media and liberals try to impose their stupidity on others, I've no problem seeing two men holding hands (I'll not go up to them and insult or discriminate them), but if acceptance of homosexuality is imposed on me, then I'll obviously say that homosexuality is not right, it's unnatural and I'm against it. If you want to call me a homophobe -- Then go for it. When it comes to God, well God didn't create homosexuals, he created humans and gave them set of laws to follow. If he said that homosexuality is a sin and people who does it are wicked, then that's it. You can take out your anger on God, but don't use God for your liberal and ungodly views. If you have a problem, then simply reject God. Be happy with your liberal views, become a full time liberal and lead humanity into confusion. In today's society a person who was born a male can suddenly become a woman. Create more confusion and also confuse our children and the later generations to come. Adios! I think I'll end it here..

    My answer and questions to you was related to Islam and not Christianity. "If I understood you, you mean making homosexuality permissible in Islam? Alcohol permissible? and so on. If that's what you mean, then no! The Qur'aan clearly outlines marriage between a man and a woman"

    If I might ask you, when you say "moderate some parts", if I understood you, you mean making homosexuality permissible in Islam? Alcohol permissible? and so on. If that's what you mean, then no! The Qur'aan clearly outlines marriage between a man and a woman, however, today in this so-called modern world the west and many countries in Europe has made same-sex marriage lawful. Madness!!

    You didn't understand. Did you read the entire text? "The religious law binding on believers are to be found in the Quran and not the previous scriptures." "Therefore, the Quran stands alone as religious authority and ‘law’ for believers."
  14. The Injeel

    Salam The Quran recognises aspects of the truth that was with the Jews and Christians at the time of Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) revelation in the late 6th and early 7th century Arabia. It confirms aspects of Biblical thought, expects a contingent of its audience to be familiar with its contents and clearly differs from certain theological interpretations that have resulted and have been 'read' into the text. The Quran also recognises that the followers of previous scriptures had different ‘laws’ (shariah) prescribed to them. 005.048 (part) "...To each among you have We prescribed a law (Arabic: Shir-atan) and an open way (Arabic: waminhajan). If God had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He has given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to God; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute” The religious law binding on believers are to be found in the Quran and not the previous scriptures. Although there will be overlaps (such as the prohibition of swine meat which the Quran confirms), there will also be differences. For example, the Children of Israel were prescribed the ‘Sabbath’ to observe, but it was not prescribed for believers in the Quran. The Children of Israel had more stringent food restrictions. These restrictions were not prescribed for believers. Specific food restrictions imposed on the People of the Book can be noted in verse 6:146. Fasting in the whole month of Ramadan is prescribed for believers, but it was not prescribed in the same exact manner for those of previous scriptures. Therefore, the Quran stands alone as religious authority and ‘law’ for believers. However, this does not mean that the previous laws such as keeping the Sabbath have been dissolved for the Children of Israel. They must keep their law. The Quran does not intend to abolish the law for the People of the Book. Rather, the Quran instructs them to keep their law otherwise it would amount to 'kufr' (disbelief – 5:44). The Quran even questions why some came to the prophet when they had the Torah before them (5:43), underscoring the fact that they were (and are) expected to keep their law as part of the covenant they had (and have) with God. The Quran agrees with much of Biblical thought. However, it also recognises some alteration by scribes et al (2:79), that some of the guidance was concealed / suppressed and where the Quran deems it appropriate to pass over / forgive other areas. 005:015 "O People of the Book, surely there has come to you our Messenger, making clear to you much of what you used to conceal (Arabic: tukh'funa) of the scripture and overlooking / forgiving much (Arabic: wa-ya'fu an kathiran). Surely has come to you from God a light and a clear book" The Arabic word 'tukh'funa' comes from the root KHA-FA-YA which carries the meaning of what is unapparent / has become imperceptible / has become dim to the sight / or suppressed, or obscured to the mind. It also carries the meaning of something which has become 'concealed'. Therefore, the Quran within context of its Arabic usage clearly recognised that certain aspects of the previous scriptures had become gradually concealed and deemed it fit to expound on some of them. It was also not the intention of the Quran to deal with each and every narrative of the Bible hence the term 'wa-yafu an kathiran' (forgive, pardon, pass over, relinquish or remit a whole or part or indeed pardon much). The Quran expects believers to put faith in the fact that previous communities were given scriptures by inspired messengers and that there were extant scriptures at the time of the Prophet’s ministry which were being read by the People of the Book.
  15. As-salaamu 'alaykum brother! Mostly these videos are fake. We had Ergun Caner who is a practising Christian and was an "ex-Muslim". But, was horribly exposed as a liar. There are several Christian organizations that use deceit to convert Muslims to Christianity, although no one with strong faith will ever fall for their traps. I've debated with numerous Christians for several years and the common strategy among them is "conversion by emotion" -- They appeal to emotions a lot -- "Jesus died for your sins", Jesus loves you" and so on. When the Christian nation, America, invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, they went there with their Bibles, but Alhamdulillah the Sunnis and Shi'ah have strong faith in Allaah even though we have some differences, tawheed is necessary to hold onto. The fact of the matter is that Christians believe in Jesus as a god and therefore they're kuffaar and to neglect this (i.e., their kufr) is a rejection of the qur'aan. The Qur'aan clearly says that those who say that Jesus is god has disbelived. By the way bro, you can check it out, numerous white women are converting to Islam. There are more female converts to Islam than male converts. If Islam is oppressive towards women then why do they convert? The reason is really simple, it gives rights to women within limits while this 21st century has made it more difficult for women since she can have the same responsibilities as men. She has to go and earn a living and therefore has competition i.e., men. Men get more salary and are more fit to do certain works. The qur'aan says that men are the breadwinners. The west has also thrown away the sanctity of marriage. Now we have transexuals and homosexuals. Christian nations where everything is thrown in the gutter. wa Allaahu 'alaam!
