  1. My family and I just moved to south Florida. Can anyone recommend some good restaurants around Hillsborough or Pinellas counties?

  2. @Ashvazdanghe, just wanted to comment on something you said earlier... "Hi this idea came from Egyptian & Greek Gods & Goddes stories specially storiesof Osiris & Zeus to justify lady Mary (sa) pregnancy without having relationship with any man that holy Quran responded to both christian & Jews that creation of Jesus [prophet Isa(as)] was like creation of prophet Adam (عليه السلام) " I know that's a popular claim among non-Christians right now, but there truly is no basis to it. If you can find an actual ancient source of a virgin giving birth, for example, I would love
  3. Hi Ashvazdanghe, you are correct of course that it does happen. I'm just pointing out that when it does, this is not a woman who knows or obeys her book. A person who truly follows Jesus takes the whole Bible seriously, not just the parts they prefer.
  4. Hello! Christian perspective here. It's actually very simple, and very very ironic. If a "Christian" woman is willing to marry a Muslim man, then ironically she is not a woman of the book. If she will marry a Muslim then she is not familiar with the books of the Bible, or she doesn't obey them. Obviously I don't mean this as an insult or anything. But 1 Corinthians 6 is very very clear that Christians are not to marry non-Christians. So Muslim men, if a "Christian" girl will marry you, you can't marry her because she isn't really of the book. If she says she won't, the
  5. Hi, no worries @aaaz1618. In online discussions sometimes a person's tone or intent doesn't come through. but I could tell @Darth Vader was genuine. I appreciate your concern though, because it will help keep Shiachat the kind of place we all want it to be.
  6. Hello! Yes, I do believe there have been many true Prophets.
  7. Hi, @aaaz1618. Would you say this is the standard position among Shia? I am earnestly trying to learn. Thanks!
  8. Hi Darth Vader, how's it going? Actually, no, I don't have trouble believing that God could do something like this. I absolutely believe he empowered a donkey to speak, for example, and that's not much less far-fetched than the Night Journey. That being said, I don't believe Muhammad was true Prophet, and so I don't believe the Night Journey actually occurred either. But again, not because it seems far-fetched or silly.
  9. Hello, I have a quick question for my Shia friends. Do the Shia believe in the Night Journey of Muhammad to Heaven and Jerusalem? I mean, I know there is probably a diversity of opinions, but generally speaking?
  10. Btw, sorry I have not been on here much over the last couple of days. I'm not avoiding the discussion or anything. We are trying to get our house ready to sell and I've got lots of little projects to wrap up.
  11. Interestingly Malaysia is in the process of kicking him out!
  12. Well, it was not an assumption, more of an informed guess, LOL. And yes, I know he is not widely regarded among Shia, though some of Hasan's arguments strike me as similar to his.
  13. @hasanhh, we keep giving each other way too much to respond to. May I suggest we wrap this up some time soon? Or at least try to find a way to talk about one thing at a time?
  14. By the way, Hasan, I didn't assume that. In fact, for a long time I really didn't want to believe it! But, it is the overwhelming message of the Bible. Who am I to disagree with the Injeel, right? You don't have to agree, but I'm sure you can see that I base it upon passages from the text, not on assumptions or hand-me-down religious dogma. You know this is a two-way street, right? May I ask you your opinion about some Qur'an verses?
