  1. Is the Ahmadiyya sect a normal sect or cult?

    If someone claims to be a Prophet and they are not, then they are a kafir, and have a religion separate to that of God. Those that have this belief that this man is a prophet or whatever, they are following a religion different to Gods religion, and not Islam. They have submitted to fiction and lies. Im not saying they should be harmed, but we cant say they are Muslim. In the same way we cant say a circle is a triangle just because we like the idea.
  2. Salams, This is an issue of Arabic language, and not really one of debate. Ahl al bayt, means "people/family OF The house". One could argue which people and what house we are referring to, but not the rest.
  3. Iranians Openly Declare Atheism

    Dont worry, they plan and Allah plans. Lets see whose plan is best.
  4. The point is the dua is to Allah, eg we are saying "Oh Allah, I ask you though " Or are you making Dua to the Prophet SAW and the Imams AS?
  5. No, your just missed out the first part. بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ O Allah, I beseech Thee, and turn towards Thee, through Thy Prophet, the Prophet of Mercy, Muhammad, may Allah Bless him and his Progeny, and grant them peace. اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي اسْالُكَ وَاتَوَجَّهُ إِلَيْكَ بِنَبِيِّكَ نَبِيِّ ٱلرَّحْمَةِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
  6. Which is Allahuma .... not Ya Muhammad, big difference.
  7. I think you misunderstand. Im not saying it doesnt happen, Im saying the excuse that its "culture" is nonsense. As when someone dies for example in Iraqi culture, no one cuts their head or rolls in mud. So to use that excuse to say, "thats just how we do things, its our norm" is rubbish.
  8. I have to say, this is a load of nonsense. No one would behave this way if they were mourning a loved one, eg if ones child or parent died are you telling me they would dress up and do a play? Or start hitting their heads with a sword? Its just completely fake. No culture does this. This is not "cultural" expression, this is just ignorant people doing things they think is right out of utter ignorance. We need to clamp down on it where ever we see it and call it out as an insult to people who are sincere.
  9. I think we can. The arab custom is not sacred, there were prophets of other customs and backgrounds, and they were still on the correct path. For example, we must work hard to realise that being Muslim is not wearing a nice white dishdasha, but wearing what is nice and modest.
  10. I feel the same way.
  11. lets be frank. Did we expect our enemies to just leave us alone? We do not have one building or tower to knock down, but our tower is our system of marji'a and the tell tale sign of an agent is they primarily attack this. Look at Habib and this guy, they relentlessly attack these things.
  12. Why did Iraqis allow this to happen..?

    What would you like us to do? He had nothing sensible to say and his actions only reflect on himself. I hope he finds the help he needs.
  13. Predestination

    I dont think that is fair or logical at all. Some people are reading the Quran or Bible and looking for ways to interpret it to fit their pre-existing views. Some are reading just parts and ignoring other parts and then forming views. Some are reading all, understanding the context and meaning and applying it to their lives. This is the correct way. The other ways lead to problems, but not because the author didnt make it clear.
  14. Predestination

    I think thats more fair. However, from a quran perspective, if one considers all the verses on a topic, then there is really only one position. The bible is obviously a different case.
  15. Predestination

    You really are amazing Andres. Ten pages in, after dozens of quotes, explanations, verses etc, you say there is not much help in the Quran on this topic. 2|286|God does not burden any soul beyond its capacity. To its credit is what it earns, and against it is what it commits. “Our Lord, do not condemn us if we forget or make a mistake. Our Lord, do not burden us as You have burdened those before us. Our Lord, do not burden us with more than we have strength to bear; and pardon us, and forgive us, and have mercy on us. You are our Lord and Master, so help us against the disbelieving people.” 5|48|And We revealed to you the Book, with truth, confirming the Scripture that preceded it, and superseding it. So judge between them according to what God revealed, and do not follow their desires if they differ from the truth that has come to you. For each of you We have assigned a law and a method. Had God willed, He could have made you a single nation, but He tests you through what He has given you. So compete in righteousness. To God is your return, all of you; then He will inform you of what you had disputed. 2|253|These messengers: We gave some advantage over others. To some of them God spoke directly, and some He raised in rank. We gave Jesus son of Mary the clear miracles, and We strengthened him with the Holy Spirit. Had God willed, those who succeeded them would not have fought one another, after the clear signs had come to them; but they disputed; some of them believed, and some of them disbelieved. Had God willed, they would not have fought one another; but God does whatever He desires. The bold "had God Willed", shows God hasnt willed on this matters, and we have choice.
