  1. I forgot the term used for the client state of a puppet state. Well appreciated.
  2. A neutral mindset. Everyone is on a journey just like yourself. Be it on a business meeting, or a job application or even on the podium of a speech, you are speaking to humans that feel and hurt the same way as you do.
  3. Rome wasn't built in a day. Begin with small changes then move up the ladder.
  4. 27;17 and onwards. There is no way that this communication between Messenger Solomon and his subordinates was merely chemical or mechanical based, as we humans speak to each other. If the wind has the ability to serve Messenger Solomon and the mountains have the choice to deny this test (33:72) then this is much greater than mere words or chemicals being released from one physical body to be received by another. This is undoubtedly a form of spiritual communication and to say that animals and inanimate objects do not have a soul is inaccurate. Remember, the heavens and the Earth worship God - nothing being excluded from those heavens and Earth, be it living or inanimate. Everything worships God and everything created by God is subordinate to God thus why everything has a soul/spirit/essence. Have you forgotten that even our limbs will take testimony to the evil or good we committed in this life. An animal will protest on the day of judgement to say this man tortured me before slaughtering me. The Arab female baby will ask why did you bury me? There is a spiritual connection between God and everything (that obeys it). The flesh that an animal has or the dirt that covers this Earth means nothing without an essence.
  5. All of creation is judged accordingly to it's capacity. In all matters moral and ethical, we must assume that the entity has the faculty to judge what is right from what is wrong. I would not assume that the animals that "sin" would be judged at all, based off of their less developed brains, but if they were to be judged at all, it must be on a completely different criteria than us. If you take the hudhud (type of bird) in the story of the Messenger Solomon ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), it raises the idea that animals may indeed be judged unless of course, the animals that Messenger Solomon commanded are an exception merely because he could communicate with them (perhaps not as we communicate through words but through energy and the soul). I will surely punish him with a severe punishment or slaughter him unless he brings me clear authorization." 27:21 ~ Solomon referring to the bird for not returning back to him in time. In brief, I cannot agree that we can confidently say that the fox that kills all the chickens in the farm without eating one of them or the gay dog in your neighbor's backyard is definitely going to hell. That fox is playing but is unaware of how its evil to needlessly kill (or is it?) and that doggo is just desperate and ignorant (or is it?)...
  6. Best stature to fulfill our purpose, that is being the custodians of the Earth. I really don't understand Creationists. Does anything in this universe just pop out of nowhere without following a specific period of development? Are we not all creations of God, yet underwent a stage of development in the uterus of our mothers from a mere clump of cells into fully formed humans? Man's seed was propagated before God put a soul into him. The verses below can't be any clearer to the fact that man did evolve. It's chronological and simple, nothing to interpret.
  7. Well, I have five points I'd like to mention as to the chapter he referenced. 1- Why did the three men not say in full clarity, "I am the Lord." or "We are the Trinity."? 2-Why do they need to ask where Sarah is if they're the "Lord"? 3-Why do they ask Sarah why she laughed if they're the "Lord"? 4-Why do they refer to the Lord instead of saying "I" or "We" in verse 13? 5-Ask him to explain this: "No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known." John-1:18 __________________________________________________ Christians sure love ambiguity and interpreting it their own way. Though my advice would be not to continue with him, it's likely to be futile and a waste of your breath. Here are some MORE verses for your Christian friend if you do choose to continue. +To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Philippians 4:20 ~ The Father and God are ONE and the same. No Trinity. +Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32 ~ Why doesn't he say "We" why is the Father special from the Son and Holy Spirit? Seems like the Father is the real decision maker. +For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. Romans 8:19 ~ Children of God? Oh, I see...it's a figure of speech! +Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Mathew 5:48 ~ Again, clear distinction. If the Son is not perfect, he isn't God, simple. ___________________________________________________
  8. Our response to his interpretation is that the spirit of God cannot be contained just as God cannot compress into human form. God is endless, infinite. Here is a verse in the Qur'an that also mentions the Spirit but there is a clear distinction between spirit and God. For all we know, it could refer to the spirit of an angel such as Gabriel. With or without sunglasses I cannot stare into the sun, let alone speak to God in a two-way conversation. Besides, where is this guy getting his interpretation from? Do any other Christians agree with him, because from what I know, Christians generally believe no, God spoke directly to Moses. I've had a debate recently with a Christian and his argument in regards to the verses I mentioned was that Israel/ son of is a spiritual state we can all achieve (he was trying to give an entirely new meaning to gentile and house of Israel) so I stopped debating him because they'll just come up with a farce of an interpretation and stick to it. Debating delusional people is futile because their interpretations have no rationale behind them. 97:4 Qur'an: The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter.
  9. Watch Ahmad Deedat's debates or read his books, he goes into them in detail but here are a few verses that should make a genuine Christian think: Figure of speech 'So said the Lord, "My firstborn son is Israel." (Exodus 4:22) Jesus does God’s bidding thus his miracles I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. (John 5:30) Only God knows the hour But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. (Mark 13:32) God tempted by the devil? And he (Jesus) was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him. (Mark 1:13) Jesus prayed to God to be saved Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; (Hebrews 5:7) Jesus came for the Jews not the gentiles But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Mathew 15:24) Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. (Mathew 15:25) But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. (Mathew 15:26) These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Mathew 10:5-6)
  10. I was referring to Biden, yes. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the others were pedophiles.
  11. I pray to God they don't elect the pedophile
  12. Foolish? Finding inspiration and motivation from the lives' of others is foolish? I'm sorry doctor but someone missed psychology class in med-school. Do you think that psychological issues are based only off of physiology? Ever heard of therapy? The cognitive state of a person matters, along with his behavior and physiology. Go back and read about Lang and psychology.
  13. The Qur'an doesn't mention anything about music but if the song you're listening to is about negative things or motivates you to do negative things, according to general consensus, you shouldn't be listening to it. Some will say it's haram but haram, meaning forbidden, is something that'll get you into Hell thus is an extreme statement if not backed up by the Qur'an. Surely, the Qur'an being a guidance to all mankind would inform us of it's haram status, if it were so. Everything is Halal unless stated otherwise in the Qur'an. Some people would differ on that issue but what are we relying on the Qur'an for if it isn't our only true and unbiased source of guidance.
