    HAPPY B'DAY 2 U...


  2. salam, salawat bar

    Mohammad wa Aalay Mohammad

    may Allah bless you on your birthday

  3. artifical borders? Who said anything about boarders and countries? A person loves his people, his nation not the land that it occupies. A person loves his country because it represents his nation and culture. Not because the border of his country runs this or that way. And remember it is Allah Who devided mankind in to nations. You must understand that the first allegiace you have is to Allah that there for the Imam of the time. After that comes you family. And maybe after that your country. But I don't think that being patriotic is in any way an religios obligation. Just don't do anything to jeapordise the integrety of you nation, your country. But I regard love for one's country as a virtue.
  4. some time ago, a brother here on shia chat posted this thread. I belief you will find it most interesting.
  5. Being patriotic and supporting the government who is running the show in a country are two different things. Many Americans do not like president Bush but that does not make them less patriotic. Am I suppose to abandon the love for my country just because some basterd has got him self in charge somehow?
  6. Well Allah says in the Qur'an that He caused mankind to get devided in to nations. And that these nations should compete with each other in doing good deeds; So how can we strive in a race with other peoples if we as a community are not united. So patriotism, a feeling of unity in an nation, CAN be a virtue.
  7. Complete this sequence: "The pope is jewish", "Pigs can fly", "babies are deliverd by an stork", ........ "The US army has an secret weapon build by dr. Mad (who in reality is an is alien cyborg bent on destroying mankind) by which it can control the weather." Hahhh, that is hilarious LOL :D
  8. He dudes, why not just igore this bozo "The_Way". I have seen his earlier threads. He askes a question to which perfectly reasonable responces are given and then complains that no one has answerd him. The_way... go away.....
  9. I got two questions; 1) What is the "Islamic" method of slaugtering? The Qur'an only says that eating stuff that is dedicated to any other then Allah is prohibited. Where can I find this neck stuff? 2) Trust me, a copper pin shot in to the animals brain (which is how animals are slaugterd these days) kill it instantly. No suffering involved.
  10. The Qur'an says that Allah raised a warner among every people. And that the names of alot of prophets have been lost in history. So clearly, even if a person isn't mentioned in the Qur'an, he could still very well be a prophet.
  11. Al we should be concerned about is helping those who have been hit by this terrible disaster. We should be praying for them and sending money. And by the way, you cannot tell me that all those 80.000+ people have somehow pissed god of. There will be evil people among them, as well as people whose rank are higher then those of angels. So damit, stop this non-sense and convey your hart felt condolences to those who have been struck.... As if we know Gods intentions.... :angry: A usefull link : Islamic Relief USA
  12. I don't know if my fellow Muslims will agree with me or not, but in my view, the Prophet used to talk to the people of his time at the level of their intellect. Just like you do not adress a child in the language of a grown up. I'm not saying the prophet was lying of anything, but the reality of what he said does not become apparent by reading the hadiths at face value. In my view, the hadith, if their are authentic in the first place, often have a deeper reality to them that is not readally apparent. The concept of time is only relevent to objects that exist in the phyisical world. The soul of a person does not exist in the physical world. A soul is not made of either matter or energy. So time does not have any meaning once you are dead. (but try do explain that do 6th century Arabs!) I do not know what the prophet was talking about. I do not have the knowledge he had. But I do not concern my self with these kind of questions. Only those who are vested with the knowledge can answer these questions. Not us fallible humans :)
  13. Hi, It occured to me that the Qur'an never abolished slavery. And to my knowledge there isn't anything in the Hatith literature that would ban slavery. But the Qur'an says that it is a completly detailed book and thus nothing is left out of it. And that it is prohibited to forbid anything that is not prohibited in the Book of Allah. So this would imply that slavery is acceptable according to Allah's deen. I asked this question once to an sunni muslim. I didn't get an decent reply back. My stance is this; Slavery is absolutly forbidden in the deen of Allah. Man has been given the unique gift of freewill, something that the rest of creation does not have. And freewill is exactly what is being denied to slaves. Although the Qur'an does not explicitly condemn slavery, it's more than clear that according to the deen of Allah slavery is morally objectable. Through out the Qur'an believers are told to free slaves if they wish to do good. But at the time of the prophet, slavery was such an common occurence that doing away with it all at once would have been unwise. So the Most Wise decided to do away with it in stages. What do you think? I once read that a Musim said that slavery is acceptable because it is not prohibited in the Qur'an.
  14. I'm sure ur right that the englisch translators added a capital letter, but the Greek language DOES have capital letters. The above letters are capitel, and bellow their non-capital counterparts
  15. Hi Daystar. But isn't it a fact that alot of other people in the Bible are called "son of God". If you think about it, a parent do two things for their childeren; 1) sustain them physically and intellectually and 2) protect them for the outside world and from them selfs. Allah says in the Quran that He does both for his believers. ANd thus the believers are the childeren of God. something the Bible agrees with.
