    The Trinity

    Can't agree more, anyway this is just to clear the air between Muslims and Christians!

    The Trinity

    Al Salam Alaikum, i am not a Trinidadian at all but is the trinity truly a contradiction? According to the definition given by Dr. James White it seems to me it is not, any thoughts?: A) There is in the Divine Being but one indivisible essence (ousia, essentia). B) In this one Divine Being there are three Persons or individual subsistences, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. C) The whole undivided essence of God belongs equally to each of the three persons. D) The subsistence and operation of the three persons in the divine Being is marked by a certain definite order. E) There are certain personal attributes by which the three persons are distinguished. F) The Church confesses the Trinity to be a mystery beyond the comprehension of man.[3] Twice the emphasis is made that the essence or being of God is indivisible. There is but one being that is God. The doctrine of the Trinity safeguards this further by asserting that "the whole undivided essence of God belongs equally to each of the three persons." This follows logically on the heels of asserting the indivisibility of the being of God, for if three Persons share that one being, they must share all of that being. The Father is not just 1/3 of God - he is fully Deity, just as the Son and the Spirit. The Biblical evidence for monotheism is legion, and it is not within the scope of this paper to review all those passages. The Shema might be sufficient to demonstrate the point, for this recital begins at Deuteronomy 6:4 with the words, "Hear, O Israel; Yahweh is our God; Yahweh is one." This concept of monotheism separates Judaism (and Christianity) from any kind of polytheistic religion. Given monotheism as a basis, it must be stressed that the bald statement of monotheism does not imply nor denote unitarianism. When the Bible says God is one, this does not mean that God is unitarian (i.e., uni-personal) in his mode of existence. Frequently individual writers will quote from the many passages that teach that there is one God and will infer from this a denial of the tri-personality of God. This is going beyond what is written. It is vital, if justice is to be done to the Biblical teaching, that all of the witness of Scripture be given due consideration. If the Bible presents more data that clarifies the meaning of God's "oneness," then this information must be taken into account. Does, then, the Bible indicate the existence of more than one Person in the divine nature? It most certainly does. John Calvin expressed the proper balance well in the Institutes
  3. Alsalam Alaikum, is I don't want to change the topic, but do you think that Sahib Al-Jawahir believed in violence to spread Islam? Because I read some of his books and it seems that he believes that violence is justified but only with the imam present.
  4. السلام عليكم و رحمة الله I was ignorant and took everything too literally, but some alas in the Quran say Allan has feet, and to Shias that is blasphemy! So not everything must be so literal. Muhsin Faydh Al-Kashani, author of the book al wafi stated that the meaning of Nutfah is not that it looks like a sperm drop, but the texture, color and viscosity etc... are similar. As for the Alaqah it becomes read and has a clinging to the womb. So this USA great interpretation, and while it isn't a scientific miracle, it is still accurate. I will convert to Islam. السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته
  5. The incident is recorded in Sunni books, and mostly weak traditions.
  6. I am reading the interpretations of different scholars on this issue, and I respect your interpretation. And thank you for the apologies. Even if I am confused, I know Islam is a great religion.
  7. Lol this guy, in Bihar Al-Nawar Kab Bin Ashraf took out arms against Muhammad, and the poets incited war, of course they deserve death. Also a Madina peaceful verse is Quran 2:190, the Shia muffasireen say it is a Madina verse.
  8. According to Sayed Rohani and Al-Fadhil Al-Miqdad Jihad is only after the completion of proof on non-Muslims to the point they would know Islam is the truth. Tell him that.
  9. Yes Shia Islam is oeaceful, some Shia scholars such as Al-Hilli and Sahib Al-Jawahir I'm not sure if they promote peace or violence, but they both believe that war is haram in ghayba.
  10. Actually this is not a trolling thread but an inquiry. I mean the Imam stated that the embryo looks like a Alaqah from day 40-80 not day 60 only. If Shia Islam is the truth I will accept it, I am not stubborn, but critical, there is a difference. Wa Salam
  11. I know that Islam is peaceful, I'm sorry if I mislabeled the topic.
  12. Of course I am not trying to say that the Imam should have stated something along the lines of "this is an embryo with the embryonic plates still developing in day 30". And the embryo days 40-80 do not resemble a Clot of blood. does this day 80 fetus resemble a blood clot?! http://www.ehd.org/prenatal-images.php?thum_id=170#content
  13. Secondly, the you say that the Aniyah refers to the zygote, which is a reasonable explanation, but is the embryo a zygote for 40 days?!
  14. What is your reasoning for saying that the meaning isn't that the Nutfah is unchanging for 40 days? Also he states that the Nutfah is there for 40 days, not a hybrid but a nutfah
