  1. Alaykum salaam brother Thank you for this very clear post on the words of Prophet Isa(عليه السلام) from the Book of John. It's critically important to know what scripture Jesus((عليه السلام).) refers to when he cites them for those who are conversing with him. In this particular passage (John 10:34 where Jesus recites Psalm 82:6) I notice that many Bibles don't refer to the actual scripture (where in many other cases they do of other scripture). This is problematic for the ordinary reader and follower of Christian scripture, because one does not have a reference, nor is any reference cited
  2. Assalaamu alaykum brothers and sisters, Last night I had a dream that starts off not as you think - perhaps more of my personal issues, but then develops into what may have been a vision of the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain((عليه السلام).) I dreamt the following. I found myself sitting (as on the floor) in a room (something like a bedroom/studio room with a bed) and one of my nieces enters carrying a large rabbit, holding it by the ears with her hands. I see that the rabbit is alive, but it is diseased and full of pus scabs, which seem to be contagious as I saw it had spread to my niece, but
  3. Salaam brother and Shukran! Alas perhaps maybe one day there might be subtitles, but it's good to know that it exists and is viewable. Masha'Allah. Definitely has me interested in learning about Imam Mahdi ((عليه السلام)) and how he was born and become more acquainted with all the other previous Imams((عليه السلام).)
  4. Assalaamu alaykum Has anyone seen the animated film that is apparently about the mother of Al-Mahdi((عليه السلام).) "Princess of Rome" Any thoughts on this? I'd like to view it, but not sure where I can find a copy. it looks good! https://www.mp4.ir/embed?Watch=2061-1109669650
  5. I see hmm. I'll have to look into this more. Thank you for letting me know. Dr. Saleem then is a Sunni Scholar I then understand it?
  6. I'm glad the article cites the source and reference, but the link seems to be broken.
  7. Assalaamu alaykum Thank you for sharing this article by Dr. Shehzad Saleem. I find his research to be superb, especially his Collection of the Qur'an to be informative and very in-depth. I wonder what others think of him? Also, I think this article on the fine arts is great, being an artist myself, I often wonder what kind of art am I permitted to create? So reading this source of information from Dr. Saleem is a breath of fresh air. Alhamdulilah and all things return to Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).
  8. LebaneseDane, Assalaamu alaykum What an incredible dream! I wish I knew it's meaning and I wish someone here would be able to help out.I came across this while searching for dreams on Imam Hussain((عليه السلام)) wanting to know what such a dream might signify. Thank you for sharing Masha'Allah!
  9. Assalaam Malaikum brothers and sisters! It's been a little time since I last posted. I've had another dream that I'd like to share and wonder if anyone would like to offer insight into what it may mean, insha'Allah? I just had it this morning and I can only share with you what I vividly remember and it was towards the end of the dream. I am a man by the way, in case that matters. In the dream I found myself in a house not familiar to myself and it was very messy, not taken care of properly. I found myself standing before a sink (almost like a long kitchen sink that can be found in restaura
  10. An insightful resource of Islam within the context of the Bible would be by the Christian author Thomas McElwain and his "Islam in the Bible". It may not answer all one's question but it is a good starting point and investigative inquiry into the Imamate found within the context of the Bible. It's free to view or download as a pdf at al-islam: Islam in the Bible
  11. Assalaam Malaikum, My apologies. Correction: Micah 6:6-8 rather than just Micah 6:6.
  12. Mercy and forgiveness is the essence of the teachings of Prophet Isa((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)). The Beatitudes has "Blessed are the Merciful for they will be shown mercy." Matthew 9:13 quotes Hosea 6:6 and Micah 6:6, that Mercy is needed rather than sacrifice, and thus Prophet Isa((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) fulfills and upholds the Law of Musa((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and Abraham((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)). The Qur'an confirms this in 57:27 of the essential message of Prophet Isa((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) via our beloved Prophet Muhammad((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)). The Authority of Allah(س
  13. My view is that if "All lives matter" it would be reflective of a just society. A just society would be a peaceful society. When there is no peace, there is no justice. Injustice must not stand or become law of the land (rule of law). Black lives matter! Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) abhors injustice.
  14. Dave, Followerer of the way In John 1:21 and John 1:25 the question is ask of John if he was the Christ, Elias, or the Prophet? John denies all three. But I heard somewhere that Jesus ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) later revealed that John was indeed Elias. These verses show that the Jews were not just looking for the Messiah but also looking for the Prophet which is Muhammad((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)).
