  1. Another crucial point is when Jesus (peace be upon him) points out that the Disciples as a whole may be *one* with himself and the Father...if he (i.e. Jesus) is alluding to the Christian concept of Trinity here then what he says in the proceeding verse doesn't make one iota of sense...if he's hinting at mystical oneness or allegorical union or spiritual unity then the metaphor makes perfect sense...he said, "As thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they (i.e. Disciples) also may be one in us"...so either he's literally talking about Avatarism or he's speaking symbolically/cosmically...
  2. Some scholars say that the Injil was an oral revelation (like Qurʼān was intially)...it may not have been compiled into a book format during Jesus' lifetime
  3. No, the Bible is composed of elements containing divine truth mixed in with manmade corruption...Qurʼān is Al-Muhaimin and should be used as a criterion against (and confirmation of) all other previous books claiming to have an origin in revelation No, Qurʼān speaks favorably of al-Hawāriyyūn (peace be upon them)..."And behold! I inspired the disciples to have faith in Me and Mine Messenger (Jesus): they said, 'We have faith, and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims'" 5:111
  4. True, but where's the original Greek or Aramaic document in its entirety if the present-day version is nothing more than a forgery produced by a 16th century Italian Muslim convert? Why doesn't the Vatican release all of its secret archives? Why all the secrecy and cloak-and-dagger hoopla??
  5. Ustadh Ali Ataie believes this as well...skip to 1:05:30...
  6. @MexicanVato, how did your family react to your conversion?
  7. @MexicanVato, don't mean to stereotype but are you originally from SW Detroit? Just curious...How did you discover Islam BTW?
  8. Yes, exactly...I agree...Zaydism is somewhat lacking in this regard I haven't been active since the late 80's and 90's...when I used to frequent the mosques I didn't descriminate…I used to go everywhere (including all local Sunni masajid) I'm a bit of a hermit and a recluse these days I suppose...LoL...especially with Covid 19 being a social deterrent...I have an 82 year old mother to take into consideration after all...sure, bro no problem...we could meet up sometime during Ramadan if you want...feel free to PM anytime...
  9. If Twelver Shi'ism didn't exist I'd probably be a Musta‘lī Ismaili or a Zaydi or an Ash'ari / Māturīdi Sufi
  10. Imagine if the scientific community behaved this way...these guys strive, struggle, investigate and work and work and work in order to uncover findings...imagine if they blamed Newton or Einstein for not placing everything on a silver platter and into bitesize pieces for them...science would have never progressed.
  11. You're lazy...you're like a baby pelican that wants its food regurgitated and spoon-fed to it by mama...doesn't work like that homie.
  12. "And another one gone and another one goneAnother one bites the dustHey I'm gonna get you tooAnother one bites the dust" - Freddy Mercury
  13. You're assuming we believe every narration in our books to be sahih and beyond reproach...that's the Sunni stance and not ours...almost every hadith is debatable and subject to severe scrutiny in our school of thought.
  14. Outside agitators were militarily propped up and financially backed by CIA, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Russia's role in thwarting ISIS severely downplayed by mainstream media says Virginia state senator Richard Black (RT News)
