    Rational Thinking got a reaction from Ali al-Abdullah in Allah's Creation   
    I am a little confused at this thread. Some of you believe in the theory of evolution, yet are saying Mashallah ?
    All of this beauty, according to some of you, is the result or random, aimless mutations, and not Divinely guided creation.
    Can't have it both ways guys (:

    OP, good noble pursuit, but how about trying to benefit your community, having dialouge with member of other communities?
    An hours reflection is better than 70 years of prayer, according to our prophet pbuh, is it not?

    Rational Thinking got a reaction from faith200 in Summoning A Jinn Permissible?   
    Easy.
    The Quran is the word of God. It includes these things. Scientific evidence including empirical evidence proves the Quran is divine.
    No evidence whatsoever proves that Jinns can actually communicate with us. (i.e be summoned)
    Summoning a jinn is not impermissible, it's impossible.

    I would add do not accuse any member who does not agree with every single shia belief to be a wahhabi. I have seen so many users here accused of that, when they are actually saying something true.
    I would add, always look at the other side, be willing to conform/change ideas, and at worst, when you disagree with someone agree to disgree. These are just forums. If you see the debate going nowhere, just leave the topic.
    (this is to myself and to all of us)
    + Not all wahhabi's are bad. Many probably dislike the killings of Shia's. We can't paint them with the same brush.

    Rational Thinking got a reaction from Muslim2010 in Did Shia Add To The Azan?   
    Nope, not part of the Adhan of rasullulah. Anyone have any proof Imam Ali a.s. asked anyone to do this?
    But Sunni's added "prayer is better than sleep" right ?
    When Shias say Ali Yun Walilulah, they have a mustahab intention.

    I see what you say, but if i stand in a chamber with no gravity, i can lift both legs up in the air. Eitherway, you are describing a scientific impossibility on earth (in the leg analogy, i have heard Mawlana's use a lot).
    My point is that everyone has their own independent free will. There are so many choices being made, so many premutations of what could happen. Someone can randomly decide to shoot you, and you can randomly albeit accidently decide to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    It's just a random occurence, not any kind of "plan".
    I see kids rotting in africa after being malnourished, kids who have HIV, people dying from random tsunami's in muslim countries and other countries impoverished by society.
    I do not blame God, i just say it's random. No-one has any special plan for anyone else.
    God can interfere, but no-one can put together an argument that makes that plausible given the contextual history and nature of humanity.

    http://www.cellslider.net
    All you need to do is look at the slides and identify the abnormal cells and report it. There is a short tutorial at the beginning to explain to you what the abnormal cells look like. You go through as many slides as you feel like.
    The purpose of this is that it greatly shortens the time taken to weed out abnormal cells. Researchers use this time to tackle more pertinent issues.

    IF you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'
    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    ' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
    if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

    This case simply would not happen in reality . Usually doctors have drugs which they use depending on their CCG's and if they want to invest money in putting a patient on a drug trial - pharmacists do not deal in drug discoveries.
    Secondly, the husband could get a loan, or perhaps go private with the intention he pays a deposit and then pays it back for the rest of his life or up to the point he has payed back the drug.
    I do see the gist of what you mean though, if there was a drug being offered, that could cure her paticular cancer, i would steal the drug.
    I can kill for self defence or to save someones life(if they are being attacked) so why can't i steal to save someones life?

    Rational Thinking got a reaction from Muhammed Ali in Why Is Everyone On The Internet So Angry?   
    I think there are way too many preconceived prejudices. On the brothers forum, older brothers call other brothers 'kids'. I see it all over these forums. Some kids are actually in their mid 20's (i know them).
    I don't mind heated debate. I just don't like name calling. People use name calling when they are too weak to challenge someone in any other way.
    I wish we could simply attack arguments, fairly and with scrutiny, - that's fine. But in turn leave the arguer.
    And i actually speak to myself first, before anyone else. This message is for myself to learn. I'm not referring to anyone, as i do not single users out. This is something for me, and for all of us to learn.

    Rational Thinking got a reaction from Logic in Yaa Alee Madad": Is This Not Shirk?!   
    Despite Allah swt saying his names are the most beautiful and to only call on him, despite him saying not to associate or call others and to only call upon him, despite Imam Ali a.s. specifically saying we need to address Allah swt alone in our dua...
    we still say YA ALI MADAD = O Ali help me.
    We also say that grant our dua faster than just saying YA Allah MADAD = o Allah help me.
    Now am i the only one who can see the inconsistency and outright flaw here?
    In my personal opininon, it's shirk.
    Why would someone swap Ya Allah Madad, for Ya Ali Madad
    The Dua is not to Allah swt alone. The Dua is adressed to Imam Ali a.s. alone, with the intention Allah swt has given him the power.
    God would not reveal a religion , spend a lot of verses making it clear to only call upon him, if he felt we need scholars to make such a basic inference.
    If indeed it's complex and we are learning, for sure we know Ya Alllah madad is ok to say.
    So why risk it - if we indeed are learning- to say Ya Ali madad, something that atleast on the surface goes totally against the Quran?

    Rational Thinking got a reaction from Logic in Can Dua's Cure Cancer?   
    I do not accept saying Ya Ali Madad, Neither did Ayatullah Fadallah, and a lot of users here. That is for another discussion, and i dislike needless confrontations so will promptly move on.
    So you accept that dua's alone can not help. However...if to get something you need to work, then why do Dua? Atheists do the same thing, no dua neccesary.
    To add, what about cancer and all the ilnesses we could not cure? People did their best, put trust in Allah swt, tried to find cures...but there were no medical cures or treatments, so they died despite prayers.
    Thus, treatment is a neccesary condition. We don't see believers surviving anymore than non believers.
    We all do dua - even an atheist does. He hopes he will get cured by whatever power that can help him - right?
    What about an agnostic, not heard of islam, or a deist, who has not heard of islam or dua - how do they get cured?
    People have always been calling on spirits/supernatural entities before we realised evidence based medicine cured ilnesses and not prayers.
    So where exactly does this leave prayers?
    I am asking to learn. Thanks for the insightful answer.
