Recommended Posts

Salam,

 

can anyone explain a bit of this? Hadith etc?

 

 

And the sun runs [on course] toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

Muhsin Khan
And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing.
Pickthall
And the sun runneth on unto a resting-place for him. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise.
Yusuf Ali
And the sun runs his course for a period determined for him: that is the decree of (Him), the Exalted in Might, the All-Knowing.
Shakir
And the sun runs on to a term appointed for it; that is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knowing.
Dr. Ghali
And the sun runs to a repository for it; that is the determining of The Ever-Mighty, the Ever-Knowing.

 


And this:

 

36:40 - Neither is it allowable to the sun that it should overtake the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day; and all float on in a sphere.

 

 

How can the night outstrip the day?

Our sun is orbiting, or rather spiraling around the black hole at the center of our galaxy. Eventually, like everything else, its destined to find a "repository" for itself.

 

And you're right, the night can't outstrip the day (and thats what its saying). The moon orbits the earth, the earth orbits the sun, while the sun orbits the black hole in such a religious manner. This is why we can have so many different types of calendars and changing of seasons, tides in the oceans and so many other things related to this cycle. Its a system made for our benefit.

    • Ok, let me ask you this: Is this the kind of Quran alone where we forsake hadith entirely or are you telling us that we should accept hadiths that only supported by the Quran? Because we can all agree that the Quran is the ultimate hadith, alhamdullilah. If it is the latter, I have no problem with it, I try to uphold that principle myself but it is the former that I take issue with. Because you are only stripping away the history but also the context of the Quran and it's message.
    • Is it ok to work on a political campaign for a politician whose views you mostly agree with, except of course the LGBT factor and of course abortion? Engaging politically is one of the best ways to make an impact, the problem is the people us muslims identify with more in the West tend to be on the left-side of the spectrum, and there have been movements to reform the democratic party so that you can weed out the corporatist stooges and the people that bow to special interests and get people who represent the people more. These tend to be mostly progressives, a lot of whom are atheists but believe in humanistic principles. Would it be ok to campaign for them in some way or another even if there are issues you don't necessarily agree with them on for religious reasons?

    • Fake News Alert l just watched Geo. W. Bush's complete speech on C-Span. Quo Vide. The parts shown on Nutwork news are at the beginning at the closing comment. The beginning welcomed the Clinton group, Madeline Albright, Condi Rice and people from repressive regimes. The part at the beginning about the uncivilized nature of current American politics can be applied to a lot of people, not just to Democrats and Republicans. There was nothing l heard about "blood and soil" and other fascist elements, anything that could be applied to Trump except from the Diatribes of Radical Democrats assumptions and assertions. l recommend watching it if for no other reason that this was one of Bush 43's better talks. OPINE: Lying Nutworks and Misleading Media.     "Stop the Lies"
