    • The Islamic understanding is that 1.) the name 'Allah' in antiquity had original monotheistic purity attached to it though-and-though...then 2.) due to the rise of Arab paganism the name became degraded as idolatrous elements crept into the understanding...3.) during Muhammad's (peace be upon him) advent he restored the concept of 'Allah' back to authentic and aboriginal Ishmaelite comprehension (ridding it of all polytheist manipulation)...all this happened over the course of thousands of years....the Evangelical opportunists seeking to propagate their agenda selectively and conveniently leave out the first phase of the history and skip to the second part to prove their case of Allah = "Moon God".
    • (Assalamualaikum) “He, the Almighty, disentitled the use of wine, because it is the root of all maliciousness and the base of all malice. It brings the drinker to a state that he/she loses his/her mind, does not know Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). At that moment, there is no sin left undone and no disallowed remained unperformed and no familiar relationship being broken. There is also no dirt kept undone. Those drunk left their bridle in the hand of Satan. Whenever he is ordered to pray to the idol, he will and he can be conducted everywhere.” -Imam As-Sadiq (عليه السلام)
    • ʾĀyah 10:94 "And if thou (O Muhammad) art in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto thee, then question those who read the Scripture (that was) before thee. Verily the Truth from thy Lord hath come unto thee. So be not thou of the waverers." Of course Muhammad (peace be upon him) doesn't doubt but we (Muslims) doubt and often when Allah monologues with the Prophet, He's indirectly addressing us through him. Allah could possibly be referring to remnants of marginalized Ebionite communities long thought to be extinct here. The Ebionites (first generation Jewish-Christians) fell into obscurity and eventually vanished altogether due to persecution by the Europeans (i.e. Roman Empire) and Trinitarians. There's an opinion by some nonreligious, Jewish and Muslim scholars that a small contingent of Ebionites survived and migrated to the Arabian Peninsula and hence resisted the sectarian cleansing efforts of the Trinitarians..    "After the end of the First Jewish–Roman War, the importance of the Jerusalem church began to fade. Jewish Christianity became dispersed throughout the Jewish diaspora in the Levant, where it was slowly eclipsed by Gentile Christianity, which then spread throughout the Roman Empire without competition from Jewish Christian sects. Once the Jerusalem church was eliminated during the Bar Kokhba revolt in 135, the Ebionites gradually lost influence and followers. Some modern scholars, such as Hyam Maccoby, argue the decline of the Ebionites was due to marginalization and persecution by both Jews and Christians. Following the defeat of the rebellion and the expulsion of Jews from Judea, Jerusalem became the Gentile city of Aelia Capitolina. Many of the Jewish Christians residing at Pella renounced their Jewish practices at this time and joined to the mainstream Christian church. Those who remained at Pella and continued in obedience to the Law were labeled heretics. In 375, Epiphanius records the settlement of Ebionites on Cyprus, but by the fifth century, Theodoret of Cyrrhus reported that they were no longer present in the region. The Ebionites are still attested, if as marginal communities, down to the 7th century. Some modern scholars argue that the Ebionites survived much longer and identify them with a sect encountered by the historian Abd al-Jabbar ibn Ahmad around the year 1000. There is another possible reference to Ebionite communities existing around the 11th century in northwestern Arabia in Sefer Ha'masaot, the "Book of the Travels" of Rabbi Benjamin of Tudela, a rabbi from Spain. These communities were located in two cities, Tayma and "Tilmas", possibly Sa`dah in Yemen. The 12th century Muslim historian Muhammad al-Shahrastani mentions Jews living in nearby Medina and Hejaz who accepted Jesus as a prophetic figure and followed traditional Judaism, rejecting mainstream Christian views. Some (secular) scholars argue that they contributed to the development of the Islamic view of Jesus due to exchanges of Ebionite remnants with the first Muslims."  
    • Allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa ali muhammadin wa ajjil faraja hum Rabbinee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqir Allahumma innee urreedu an atazawwaja faqaddir lee minan nisaa-I a’fihunna farjajan wa ah’fadh’ihunna lee fee nafsihaa wa awsa-i-hunna lee rizwan wa a-dhamahunna lee barakatan fee nafsihaa wa maaleee faqaddir lee minhaa waladan tayyiban tajaluhoo khalafan saalihan fee hayaatee wa ba`da mawtee. Oh Allah! I desire to marry, so arrange for me a woman from those who willingly abstain from what is unlawful and who safeguards her soul for my sake and because of her, not only my means of sustenance will increase, but also make there be in it abundance and also make it sure that she will give me a virtuous son, who will be a noble successor in my life and after my death. Ya Rabb, help me in finding a good wife in the same boat as me, who also understands and accepts me as I am. May she find peace and be filled with joy wherever she goes. May she have the strength and courage to find me, love me and live with me. May she find and be filled with much wisdom and clarity in her words and from her experiences. May she in her kindness, share these experiences with me and help us grow together. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Rabb, You alone know what is truly in my heart. You alone know my struggles and pain, Al-Wadud. I feel unbearably lonely and do not wish to incur Your displeasure by remaining unmarried, Al-'Aziz
