  1. The word الموهوم (al-mwhwm) derives itself from waw-ha-meem which is wahima. The roots waw-ha-meem means "to cunjecture", "to speculate", "to presume", "to guess", "to have false hope (to ween)" and so on. This word is what goes in accordance with "belief." Further, see the following reply: In the above lines you see that upon being asked about reality, Hazrat Ali (SA), has replied to Kumayl, "محو الموهوم و صحو المعلوم" This is transliterated as "mahw al-mawhwm wa ṣaḥw al-ma`lum." Mahw = dispell, remove, clear. al-Mawhwm = speculation, conjecture, presumption, guess
  2. Please maintain Peace on my thread because a person who is trying to offend can only offend someone if the person on the receiving end takes the offence. I cannot agree with @yashia on many points but he may be a very good human being who is simply trying to understand the ways of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) just as we are. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the all-pervasive, al-Ahad, al-Wahid, and it is not possible to understand his ways and experience him with this human intellect. He is beyond logic. He is the creator of logic. Please Understand that it is very natural for anyone t
  3. Respectfully, Jannah is a level of spirituality that is to be achieved within this lifetime. When you are dead and your body has been burried into the soil, what will you do with all the good food and everything that you "believe" jannah comprises of? Peace is the fundamental goal of life. If you leave peace for the afterlife you will only rest in peace!
  4. Sure. In addition to "to be indebted", the roots Dal-Ya-Nun also mean "to be obedient", "submissive", "to owe", "servility". To reference you, I searched a bit and found the following links that agree to the above meaning: https://wahiduddin.net/words/arabic_glossary.htm http://www.studyquran.org/resources/Quranic_Root_Dictionary.pdf Now, "to be Submissive" to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is being completely dissolved in Him and attaining the Divine Oneness (al-Ahadiyya). Hazrat Khwaja Mansur Al-Hallaj, after being dissolved in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) exclaimed "Ana a
  5. But please elucidate on the fact that faith is weaker than belief? In my views: Faith can either be gained or lost by experiencing changes in oneself during a spiritual transformation unlike belief which is rigid and forced upon someone. So, yes. I agree that faith may be weaker than belief initially because it is not as strong as just blatant following but it is understanding and then trusting. Well!
  6. My mistake. Pardon me and Thank You. It means that one MUST analyze the Arabic words related to belief and faith before translating them blatantly so as to prevent any confusions.
  7. A 'discussion forum' must prefer a premise for open and free discussions. Cambridge Dictionary defines discussion as: "the activity in which people talk about something and tell each other their ideas or opinions." Furthermore I have posted my topic in the General Islamic Discussion forum. I think you misinterpreted my whole post. Possibly the title of my post infuriated you. Pardon me. This is an Arabic word with roots alif-meem-nun, which can also be translated into English as 'faithful', 'believer', 'trustful', 'secure', 'to be quiet', 'to be free of expectations', 'promise' a
  8. Personally I think there are so many problems with being a believer. When you say “I believe” you are fundamentally saying, “I am unwilling to admit that I do not know”. The seeker is willing to admit he doesn’t know! The believer is unwilling to make this admission. He draws conclusions about what is not yet within his experience. A believer may make assumptions about the day of the judgement! Further, the moment you believe something, you are in conflict with the opposing belief. You can postpone it with moderate talk. But conflict is inevitable. Isn't it that Abu Darda reported:
