  1. Do you shake hand?

    Don't under normal circumstances but sometimes have done so. Read ruling from Sistani Sb. on this . As per him, one should avoid it as much as he can but if necessary its permissible. https://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01207/
  2. isn't there "Jesus/god" on the cross in about every church?
  3. Picture worth a few Words

    should n't the sign be ">" instead of "=".
  4. So now we will have to define sense and perception. Sense is ability to think and perception is ability to understand. And when you understand and think obviously you will deduce somethings.
  5. Picture worth a few Words

    apparently is photographer nay daikh liya
  6. Its one opinion. For me the symmetry of universe is not explained as accidental. Some verses in Quran and the symmetry are enough proof that there is omnipotent. Lemme give you and example, there is no mathematical proof of gravitational force's existence but almost every thing in modern science is based on it and explains a lot of stuff so it is accepted as it is. Theory of relativity is accepted as is because it explained a lot on space phenomenons and some ideas like string theory are highly regarded for the same reason that it explains a lot of what happening out there. While on the same time these theories have not been proved till now but still accepted by majority. Why can't we say same for existence of God? We can't prove His existence but a lot of thing explains perfectly if we admit there is presence of an Omnipotent. Or may be just contradicting orthodox ideas just for the sake of it is the new "kewl".
  7. Must a Muslim love God?

    A simple answer, no its not necessary. A muslim by definition is someone who believes in oneness of God and Muhammad S.A.W being last prophet. There is no condition of love. But as in case of parents we love them for what they have done for us. So, if one believes that God is the one given him life and everything else he/she has, gratitude and love is only natural.
  8. Murtid- Wajib ul Qatal ?

    I understand what you are trying to say but kindly understand what i am trying to ask. You are saying that how leaving Islam should be punishable by death. I am asking its not about what should be and how it should be, its about what is ruling in this matter. And whether any Ayyah directly hints towards this ruling ? I completely agree but similar to above discussion in link there is no reference to Quran. I understand that even treason against country is punishable by death then why not for religion. But what i want you to understand that rulings are not as per yours and mine understanding. If that so then i say it should not be done like this. Its matter of life and death of a human being. It cant be interpreted that easily as per one's thinking. Same Islam asks to respect every human being regardless of their religion and color.
  9. Murtid- Wajib ul Qatal ?

    As per my aql the punishment (qital) is not ok. I am a simple man. I find reasons in every thing. I have reason to believe in existence of God and not because my parents are Muslims. I have reason to believe on Muhammad S.A.W and Prophets A.S before that. I have reason to have what ever belief i have. What i am trying to say is that we all know and came across different ahadees being associated to Muhammad S.A.W which "aql" cant begin to comprehend that he could have said such a thing. So associating something to Imama A.S is not such a big deal for "historians". But as all sects of muslims agree on this, i presume its the rightful punishment but still it does not mean that i am ok with it. I think humans have time to repent till natural death. Obviously if Imam A.S have truly ruled this in particular matter then my emotions or aql is useless and that's the way to go. I was browsing through Quora when i came across this question by a non-muslim. "Does Quran says that kill a person that leaves Islam?" Now we claim that Quran is most complete and authentic book. Also "Surely, God does not shy away from teaching you truth" [33:53]. How do one answers a non believer ?
  10. Murtid- Wajib ul Qatal ?

    I skimmed through the link. From what i gather, it states that Quran has mentioned apostate's punishment after death and has not indicated if one becomes polytheist, what to do with him in his life. There are different cases of Imams A.S where they decreed capital punishment but no direct rule. So if anyone asks show me this in Quran. Or Lets assume a non Muslim accuses that we have made this rule on our own and Quran does not asks us to do such a thing then i can't present him with logical answer.
  11. Murtid- Wajib ul Qatal ?

    @desiinuk Can you please explain your view...
  12. Asslam Alaikum, Hope you all are fine and well. The question just popped out in my mind. Is murtid wajib qatal? Not as per you or me. I know the general norm passed from generation to generation. I wanna what Quran o Hadees says? ------------ I remember studying Sulah Hudaibya during my school years, i'm sure most of you will too. One of the terms of this treaty was: - “In your name, O God!This is the treaty of peace between Muhammad Ibn Abdullah and Suhayl ibn Amr. They have agreed to allow their arms to rest for ten years. During this time each party shall be secure, and neither shall injure the other; no secret damage shall be inflicted, but honesty and honour shall prevail between them. Whoever in Arabia wishes to enter into a treaty or covenant with Muhammad can do so, and whoever wishes to enter into a treaty or covenant with the Quraysh can do so. And if a Quraysh´ite comes without the permission of his guardian to Muhammad, he shall be delivered up to the Quraysh; but if, on the other hand, one of Muhammad's people comes to the Quraysh, he shall not be delivered up to Muhammad. This year, Muhammad, with his companions, must withdraw from Mecca, but next year, he may come to Mecca and remain for three days, yet without their weapons except those of a traveler, the swords remaining in their sheaths.” Now, here it is clear that the one who leaves Prohpet S.A.W and joins Quraysh has indemnity. Thoughts?
  13. Durood e taj

    I do. Its quite good the different ways praises and ranking of Muhammad S.A.W have been explained. So question instead would be why it would not be allowed ?
  14. Sunnis And Shias- Can We Just Unite...?

    Yes, but dear those people at upper level need people who directly communicate with us. The respect of Imam Masjid is well known though there are PHd(s) in jammat but if somebody contradicts Imam Masjid's speech or even asks more elaboration ...oooo one is given tag of "Liberal". I know. But understand what i am trying to say. I am trying to answer the question. Is it possible for Sunni and Shia to unite without any difference. -NO ITS NOT- We work together in offices,eat, pray and party together but 10 days of Muharram...everyone suddenly has questions.
  15. Sunnis And Shias- Can We Just Unite...?

    That's the thing! Every rational Alim e din on either side tells both to respect others and don't intentionally hurt other sects. Let others practice what they deem right as you on Mehshar will be answerable for your acts only. But our minds are too narrow for this to work. We become against Ulma of one's own sect when he talks of rationalizing and respect.
