  1. Did you know that farming originated in the countries we now call "The Islamic world"?
  2. You can adopt theistic evolution standpoint.
  3. Arguably, this verse can be used to imply a prophecy of someone coming (as said by Buddha apparently): And Ānanda, suppressing his tears, said to the Blessed One: "Who shall teach us when thou art gone?" And the Blessed One replied: "I am not the first Buddha who came upon Earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time another Buddha will arise in the world, a Holy One, a supremely enlightened One, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals. He will reveal to you the same eternal truths which I have taught you. He will preach his religion, glorious in its origin, glorious at the climax, and glorious at the goal, in the spirit and in the letter. He will proclaim a religious life, wholly perfect and pure; such as I now proclaim." Ānanda said: "How shall we know him?" The Blessed One said: "He will be known as Metteyya, which means 'he whose name is kindness.'"
  4. I have read much of the 4 gospels, though didn't read virtually everything as of yet, I am focusing on the Qur'an. I am close to finishing Matthew.
  5. Can I paste all of the Qur'an? Anyway, I especially love this verse: قُلْ إِنَّ رَبِّي يَقْذِفُ بِالْحَقِّ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ Say, "Indeed, my Lord projects the truth. Knower of the unseen." [34:48]
  6. أَخْبَرَنَا الْقَاضِي أَبُو الْقَاسِمِ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْمُحَسِّنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ التَّنُوخِيُّ ، بِقِرَاءَتِي عَلَيْهِ ، قَالَ : أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو مُحَمَّدٍ سَهْلُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سَهْلٍ الدِّيبَاجِيُّ ، قَالَ : حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَلِيٍّ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْأَشْعَثِ الْكُوفِيُّ ، بِمِصْرَ ، قَالَ : حَدَّثَنِي مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مُوسَى بْنِ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ ، قَالَ : حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ جَعْفَرٍ ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حُسَيْنٍ ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، عَنْ عَلِيٍّ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَامُ ، قَالَ : كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا أَفْطَرَ ، قَالَ : " اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ صُمْنَا وَعَلَى رِزْقِكَ أَفْطَرْنَا فَتَقَبَّلْهُ مِنَّا ، ذَهَبَ الظَّمَأُ وَابْتَلَّتِ الْعُرُوقُ وَبَقِيَ الْأَجْرُ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى "
  7. Finish reading the Qur'an, more than one time, InshaAllah.
  8. It was clearly revealed for a specific incident.
  9. The Qur'an explicitly told us that Yunus (as) was swallowed by the Whale for being impatient on his people. Such ahadith are typically full of ghuluw and these are the ones the Imams (asws) warned us of. Now it's up to you, whether to trust the book of Allah, or some unreliable narration/hadith.
  10. Zoroaster, Buddha, Mani and the others may have been prophets. Their message would have had been corrupt for sure.
  11. We can check the percentage of Neanderthal blood through Ancestry DNA tests, it's solid. I would say that Adam (as) was the successor of other peoples, and not himself the first one. Maybe the man whom we all descend from (Y-chromosomal Adam), however, it is not necessary that him and mitochondrial Eve both lived in the same time. However, it doesn't remove the possibility of mutual time existence. The thing about the Qur'an, is, it doesn't describe creation of the cosmos and the origins of life like the OT and NT. Rather, in Islam, the possibility is open and we can accept almost everything. There are already many flaws in creationism, panspermia and abiogenesis. That's why I believe in theistic evolution.
  12. Salam, The above brothers/sisters explained it, just wanted to correct your mistake, قوت should be قوة. WS.
  13. Why would God need to be created? That's because Human mind can't perceive something to be "not created", If God started then there is a creator of God. God however can't be limited to the point of view of Human.
  14. Exactly, that's why I started questioning of religion and God at age of 9.....
  15. That's irrelevant. Muslims represent less than a quarter of the globe. Do you have any statistics for that?! Plus these stuff relate to Political issues than religious. See how most of Muslims in the west are successful and most of them managed to keep their faith. First of all Allah will not miraculously stop the violence. Allah clearly taught us that with Du'a comes with action. E.g: You can't just pray to God to give you money while you're sitting at home. You must perform, search for a job, ask about current requirements for job markets, making financial plans etc... And if we Muslims aren't even helping ourselves how will we live in peace? I'm mean just look at this site, we all are Shi'as and some of us just curse and fight each other. Ummah of Muhammad was traitorous to it's own prophet. Pity.
  16. When Nuh (a) performed the Dua it's very normal to say that. I don't think a prophet would pray to God to "Allah please destroy pagans of Sumeria but keep the Greek pagans". Other than that we have tons of proofs of floods occurring in Mesopotamia since the Euphrates and the Tigris were known for not being able to be expected.
  17. Why didn't the Prophet (s) just wake him up? Why to reverse sun "for 10 minutes"??
  18. Honestly, I am proud of the title "Rafidi"
  19. I'm so excited for the holy month of Ramadan, alhamdulillah may Allah make it eternal for everyone here. It's my favorite time of the year!
