  1. This Is What Will Happen in the Next 100 Trillion Years
  2. Assalamo alaikom and eid mubarak for those celebrating, After the iftar I got in a heated discussion about the eid and the moon. So I'm pretty straightforward, I do not follow any school or marja when it comes to this issue. I follow the moon in my place only (belgium). I visited three official (astronomical, meteorological) sites that all tell me that the moon cycle ended the 24th june and the new cycle starts the 25th (1% visible) and thus it implicates that the eid is the 25th. Now, because it's only 1% visible some of my friends insisted that we should only declare eid when we can see it with the naked eye. But why go to the struggle if the highly-accurate machine can do it for me? I know it's kinda stupid to argue over one extra day of fasting, but it bugged my quite a bit so I really want to know? Thanks for your attention Wassalam
  3. Flat Earth Model Belief assumed earth was completely flat Day and night could not happen simultaneously Earth fixed and sun orbiting the earth Myths were ripe surrounding where the sun set and rose from Model could only support a single sunrise and sunset point Model could not support different time zones across the world Spherical Earth Model Earth is almost spherical with a few minor exceptions around the poles Earth orbits the SUN Earth is spinning to give us day and night simultaneously SUN is static relative to the earth Each point on earth has its own sunrise and sunset point Different time zones supported across the world Before I present the verses of the Quran that describes the earth, I will start of with the following verse. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:3) We verily, have made it a Qur'ân in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). This verse is clearly telling us that the Quran is meant to be easily understood and not what Dr Naik assumes, by taking us around the universe. Galaxies were not understood at the time the Quran was revealed and hence would have confused the people at the time. Also, as you will notice, all suras I have pointed out were revealed in Makkah, at a time when the prophet was under immense pressure to explain every verse of the Quran clearly. Naik is using fallacy and creating his own science in the Quran. These are the Descriptive verses Sura Al-Kahf (18:47) And (remember) the Day We shall cause the mountains to pass away (like clouds of dust), and you will see the earth as a levelled plain, and we shall gather them all together so as to leave not one of them behind. Sura Taha (20:53) Who has made earth for you like a bed (spread out); and has opened roads (ways and paths etc.) for you therein; and has sent down water (rain) from the sky. And We have brought forth with it various kinds of vegetation. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:10) Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:38) Till, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says [to his Qarîn (Satan / devil companion)] "Would that between me and you were the distance of the two easts (or the east and west)" a worst (type of) companion (indeed)! Sura An-Naba (78:6) Have We not made the earth as a bed, Sura An-Naziat (79:30) And after that He spread the earth; These verses would only be applicable to a flat earth belief Sura An-Naml (27:61) Is not He (better than your gods) Who has made the earth as a fixed abode, and has placed rivers in its midst, and has placed firm mountains therein, and has set a barrier between the two seas (of salt and sweet water).Is there any ilâh (god) with Allâh? Nay, but most of them know not. Sura Al-Kahf (18:86) Until, when he reached the setting place of the sun, he found it setting in a spring of black muddy (or hot) water. And he found near it a people. We (Allâh) said (by inspiration): "O Dhul-Qarnain! Either you punish them, or treat them with kindness." Sura Al-Kahf (18:90) Until, when he came to the rising place of the sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We (Allâh) had provided no shelter against the sun. Sura Yasin (36:38) And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing. Sura Yasin (36:40) It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. They all float, each in an orbit. All these verses support a Flat earth model that the Quran is describing. I strongly encourage you to read these Suras in their entirety, to prove to yourself that I have not taken or used any verse out of context. If you feel that I have missed any verses which describe or support a spherical model, please provide me the verses from the Quran. Any imaginations not supported by a verse from the Quran will NOT be acceptable.
  4. My some sunni friends and my family mentioned yesterday night that they have seen the words closely resembling Ya Hussain in the moon in Pakistan. Today at night of 10th Muharram i also saw the words with very much resemblance of Ya Hussain in the bright part of moon. If any one has its pic that can be shared for the information of others. WS
  5. So the Ramadan moon was sighted in Saudi Arabia and UAE on Sunday thereby starting Ramadan on Monday. Now I am no scientist but it was scientifically impossible to see the moon on Sun in the Middle East so how did people in Saudi and UAE see it. I am sure they were not lying to it must have been a miracle and that too a miracle limited to Saudi and UAE only. It would be okay if they just came out and said they go by the birth of the moon and not on being able to sight it. But the lying.....
  6. I'm planning a picnic for the start of Ramadan where we (Muslims friends of my community/facebook) will go to the top of a mountain and sight the moon for Ramadan. I made this suggestion on facebook and all hell just broke loose. 1. People are saying that there is no need to do such because Saudi Arabia has already said what day it is going to be on. 2. People jumped in on the above saying that we don't follow wahhabis (oh lord........). 3. People are saying that I (a woman & non scholar) am not qualified to sight the moon. 4. People jumped in on the above saying give proof, lol. 5. People are saying that you don't have to be a scholar to sight the moon, just be a Muslim man. 6. Next, the haram police swooped in and said that having a moonsighting picnic is bidah. 8. The observation tower at the top of this mountain just happens to have a 56 foot statue of a Greek idol on it. That too was cited as haram by the haram police. So what is the fiqh of moonsighting?
  7. Sallams, I was just curious to know more about it. Could some one shine some light on this topic? WS
