  1. I find it kinda funny how the fellow Ummah forget what Surah 22:17 says: "Indeed, those who have believed and those who were Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associated with Allah - Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed Allah is, over all things, Witness." A "Magian" (majūsa) is another name for a Mazdaean, which is yet another name for the more well-known "Zoroastrian". The Prophet Zoroaster/Zarathustra himself is never directly mentioned anywhere (although there are allusions in many ahadith) but there is very little
  2. Ok smart-guy. Compare Paul's doctrines to what is written in The Didache. Red-flags? Christianity is the result of the competition of a very large amount of prolific separate traditions competing for the copyright of "Jesus" were cut down from the stalk, censored, refined and then sowed together with canonization and an established "Official" Doctrine (typified by the Nicene creed). Jesus was a monotheist, history teaches this, even the New Testament books themselves teach this. It doesn't take a scholar to notice (although there is much scholarship on the topic). As fo
  3. To bring in a few psychological ideas here. Desire is the Anima looking for it's Animus. When we have a void in our heart (on the romantic level) and have a carnal satisfaction not being met (especially in the unmarried/single situation), we drift towards a kind of simulacrum to fill the void. Just as we seek Allah, of which completes a missing part of what it means to exist, so do we relate that on the level of relationships. We have an incomplete part of us which is expressed through a partner, that completion is found in the Union of an embrace which over time produces generation (progeny).
  4. Yeah, that's a misunderstanding of what Pantheism is. Pantheism is that the physical universe is God, it's materialism with different sentiments. The Universe doesn't arise from itself, nor can it define itself. Dualism affirms a Unity, therefore both Pantheism and Atheism can only be falsehoods. On the latter of your post, I hope you don't assume that anything has an existence that is not through Allah's. The whole point is already demonstrated in La Ilaha illa'llah. The best way to put it is that Allah is the only existence, the only reality, the only truth. Everything we know as the ph
  5. As salaamu alaikum, Woah, I haven't been here in a while but it feels great to be back. Hope everyone's doing well. Subhanallah.
  6. Your response isn't to me but I need to point out that you don't understand pantheism if that's what you think @Logic1234 was stating. Pantheism itself is the complete contrary to what they stated. Pantheism defines the Ontological Absolute as the material world. Pantheism denies the transcendent. Pantheism, even with some kind of belief of a collective-soul (however that'd work in a materialist/naturalist framework, who knows...) turns the Absolute into just atoms and particles. The Ontological Absolute is not the material world, that is utter absurdity, that is not any better than Atheism an
  7. Actually I was about to quote Nahjul Balagha Sermon #1 myself and you beat me to it
  8. I think, aside from the contemplation of the nature of the cycles of manifest existence (or "the Universe") - which includes things that you in fact often do take completely for granted (like the day/night cycle, fractals in nature etc), the other part is to contemplate the nature of Dunya itself. We give too much credence to certain assumed expectations about this life/world/realm, but not much to it's actual nature. Sure we live and die, but even a skeptical materialist may begin to see a problem with that on a logical and ontological level. One oft-repeating Ayat in the Qur'an is "Fro
  9. Question not directed to me but yes, it is implicit that God is Ultimate Reality in Islam. Afterall, al-Haqq IS one of the names of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Remember the Shahada (La ilaha illa'llah), "There is No God but God". Remember Surah Ikhlas? Remember the ayat (also in Ikhlas) that "There is nothing like God"? Remember names of Allah such as as-Samad, al-Ahad, az-Zahir, al-Batin, an-Nur, al-Baqi, al-Khaliq, al-Bari etc etc etc. Remember the many sayings of the Imams on the topic of Tawhid? (there's an incredible and massive section in al-Kafi, among
  10. Yes it is negative and it is rather a contradiction of it's premise too, so it's incoherent. The world was very diverse before the modern world, the fact of this is enough to show how wrong these kinds of movements are. Through imperialism and globalization, we are increasingly becoming less diverse and less free in general. It's the weaponization of language and creating buzzwords that mean the opposite of what they appear to imply. They say "diversity" but they mean "monoculture", which means that it's very subversive. That example is exclusivism. I'm not sure if it's "immoral"
  11. I'll have to dig up some ahadith on this one but really the word "eternal" has to first be defined, alongside what your perceive Jahannam to be both from the Qur'an's descriptions and from the descriptions in ahadith. The thing is though, in a coherent theological understanding you must factor in the ontology of the subject or else you can be left with some rather strange and fanatical ideas (in the case of Catholicism, Protestantism/Evangelicals and Salafism for example)
  12. You know brother, this is very true. In general, through consumerist and capitalist system we have the majority of everything supplied (therefore reliant on corporations, industries and government) so we, ourselves, rather become tools of manipulation by the system. The only freedom there is, is freedom from materialism. Atheists (which Liberals heavily tend to fall into) have no solace in this regard - essentially living for two things: Self-pleasure and the Grave. Not too much 'freedom' on that front. Feminism itself serves the function of a form of tyranny itself, enslaving
  13. With that, the suicide rates will rise. And no, we don't need any more technology please. In fact, we should chuck out half of the technology we already have at this point, and replace it with natural things.
  14. Of course I've read the Bible, who hasn't? I've read lots of apocrypha and non-canonical texts too. The early church pumped out some crazy stuff, as well as stuff like Marcionism, the Ebionites, the Gnostic sects, Nazarenes etc. I've also dug into Judaism and it's own unique texts of many kinds (including the Hekhalot literature). My favorite texts in the Bible (either OT or NT) tend to actually be the wisdom literature rather than the more core texts. Ecclesiastes, Job, Ezekiel and the 'Gospel' of John are probably my favorite texts in the Bible. The Apocalypse of joh
