  1. It shows there is no free WITHIN the universe as there are various conditions and factors infleuncing our actions. But the first cause has the ability to execute an action and does not have any causes prior to its causation, therefore no preceding causea or actions dictating its causation, and the only way the first cause can act with no prior conditions influencing infleuncing it,is if the first cause has a will and wills itselt to act as the first cause.
  2. I was debating an atheist and would appreciate if someone could properly phrase this argument better for me. There are two types of causes that can theoretically exist 1. Agent-Causation 2. Non-Agent Causation Agent-Causation is causation that is willed, if you woke up and decided to go to work, then this is an agent cause, because you could have decided to not will yourself to wake up and sleep in early. Now someone might object and say that the only reason you woke up was because the neurons firing in the right time and right place, with the particles colliding in su
  3. Asalamulaikum, according to the rule of grace or mercy, Allah must always have a wali or representative on Earth. http://www.wikifeqh.ir/قاعده_لطف If someone could give me the gist of the proof and its premises that would be much appreciated. Jazakallah khair
  4. Asalmulaikum,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxheJas1hGM&t=327s A Christian is trying to say that Muhammad(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) simply copied contents from the testament of the Solomon.I first told him that similarity does equal sameness, but he then told me, that the mention of Demons being in shackles,having controls over winds, demons diving into the sea to find pearls for Sulayman, Sulayman havinng a division of Jinn, Sulayman binding a jinn to a gate, similar to how Muhamamd(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) binded a jinn to a pillar of the mosque. He says that while one or two of thes
  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6CD3dgNYp0&t=07m45s At 7:45, Shabir Ally says that the entire quran exhibits a ring structure, with there being 19 clusters or "groups of surahs". I know what a ring structure is, but I can't see the ring structure in the entire quran. Can someone explain that part? And also list some examples of these clusters or groups
  6. The laws of mathematics can only be grasped by our intellect. 2 + 2 = 4 does not exist in the physical realm. Since they can only be grasped by an intellect, and these laws existed for eternity, (2 + 2 always has, will and equals 4), then they must be grounded in an eternal intellect. They must hence exist in an eternal mind (which is god). Do you know an indepth explanation of this
  7. Salam using scholastic realism, it is claimed that one can prove the existence of god. Can someone expand on this?

  10. Brother I don`t get the argument myself. Can someone explain it to me
  11. Another version of the Proof of the Sincere given by Sadr al-Muta’alihin occurs in his commentary on the passage from the Qur’an: “Allah witnesses that there is no god but He” (3:17). Mulla Sadra writes: Know that the greatest of proofs and firmest of ways, the brightest path, the most noble and most secure is reasoning to the essence (dhat) of a thing by its essence (dhat). And that which is the most manifest of things is the nature of absolute existence (al-wujud al-mutlaq) in so far as it is absolute, and it is the Truth (haqiqah) of the Necessary Itself, the Exalted, and th
  12. Salam I originally though that the soul was an immaterial substance, that was given to humans in specific. But according to some people, everything that exists has a soul. The soul is essential for physical existence of everything. The soul is defined as " Existent's esoteric dimension". Can someone explain what this means
  13. 1. Reality consists of some things whose existence at any given time depends upon (or is contingent upon) other things. For example, the existence of a cat is dependent, at all times, upon the existence of its cells and the arrangement (form) of its cells. The existence of its cells similarly depend upon molecules and their molecular structure. The existence of the molecules likewise depend upon atoms and the structure of the atoms, and so on. Each of these cases – the cat, the cells, the molecules, etc. are examples of conditioned realities – whose existence is dependent on other things or
  14. Salam can you explain the following quote from allamah tabatabai: "The universe is temporal (in constant change and movement) and each particular part of it can become nonexistent. Therefore, it (the particulars) are not the existence that cannot be made nonexistent. This world depends on a reality which cannot be made nonexistent and it is in the light of that reality that the world becomes existent. If that reality did not existent, this world and whatever in it would not have existed. Of course, it does not mean that the reality unites with the thing in a way such that they become one thin
