  1. That is false. Isma'ilis do not teach reincarnation: https://ask.ismailignosis.com/article/11-what-is-the-ismaili-Muslim-view-on-reincarnation
  2. Nothing you've quoted goes against the point I'm making, it supports it.
  3. Thanks for your comments everyone, I promise read them all. Here's another passage from the link to highlight my view: "The Qur’anic view of the Crucifixion is not necessarily an outright denial of the event. But rather, as the Isma‘ili commentators show, the Qur’an is emphasizing a different aspect of the Crucifixion altogether. While Christians focus on the passion, suffering, and death of Jesus, the Qu’ran speaks from a more subtle and spiritual perspective when it proclaims that 'they killed him not, nor did they crucify him, but it only appeared so to them.' As the I
  4. I read all of what you said, but I Don't think the Qur'an teaches what many Muslims think it does, I think they're mistaken and reading into the text something that isn't there. Again, I think the link I shared does a good job at highlighting many of the key points. The Jews thought they killed Christ and it appeared to them that way, but they didn't, they didn't have that power. It doesn't say he wasn't crucified and didn't die, it says they didn't do it. That's an important part. To your final point, I'm a Shia Muslim, true but they doesn't mean all of our views have all been corr
  5. I agree that in maybe a formal debate setting it's useless, but for a discussion, I think it can be enlightening. Honestly, going from the Bible, Qur'an, and sources outside of religious texts, I think the crucifixion is historically true. I get too why most Muslims may think otherwise, but I think it has to do with getting into the text facts that aren't there. I think the link does a good job at highlighting many of the nuances I myself hold.
  6. I respect your take. Yes, it's not as clear as people believe. It says THEY did not kill him or crucify him, not that he didn't die or wasn't crucified. It appeared to them that they killed him, but they ultimately didn't have that power. I think the Isma'ili interpretation is the most correct I've read.
  7. The Qur'an supports the biblical narrative with regards to the crucifixion. Read the link.
  8. It is pretty clear for those who have basic reading comprehension and understand the importance of context. Christ was crucified and the Qur'an and Bible agree on this. The link I attached goes over this in detail.
  9. Hello, I find it strange that so many Muslims teach and believe that Jesus was not crucified and didn't die. This view is completely antithetical to what the Qur'an teaches: "Over the history of Islam, most Muslim commentators have come to deny that Jesus was ever crucified at all, with many holding that a substitute was crucified in his place1. But does this view accurately reflect the Qur’anic position? It is necessary to examine the full context of the above verse – a verse which is too often referred to only in isolation. The group of verses which immediately precede the verse in
  10. I appreciate the response. I have no problem with surgeries for people with clear biological justification (like hermaphrodites), but gender dysphoria is a real mental illness and you don't treat it by hacking away at someone's genitals. They need psychological help, not surgery. Just because someone hacks off their genitals, puts on a dress, and pretends to be a girl because they're mentally ill doesn't make them a girl. It's disgusting and degenerate. The "surgery" is just a fake way of allowing homosexuality for people playing dress up, because that's what it is.
  11. Trans "women" are not REAL women. Trans "men" are not REAL men. It's delusional. And you can take your buzzword of "Transphobia" and go pound sand. I don't have to indulge people in their delusions. If they don't have ambiguous genitalia/are intersex then they are delusional and need psychological help, not surgery. Peace comes by submitting to God's will, not by pretending to be something you're not. And homosexuality, but transgenderism isn't any better, if anything it's worse.
  12. But if they're not deformed physically then they are mentally ill. You don't treat a mental illness by indulging someone in their mental sickness. That's like encouraging an anorexic not to eat. Trans people kill themselves at a MUCH higher rate even after surgery. They are also 58% more likely to commit murder. They need psychological help, not surgery if they don't have deformities.
  13. Do you have a link to the ruling brother? That sounds shameful if the number one Shia country in the world allows this then.
  14. But if it's very rare brother, then why does Iran perform so many of them? Is everyone who gets the surgery actually hermaphrodite/intersex? Thanks for your comment.
