    Cherub786 got a reaction from Meedy in Do those without a religion live more fulfilling lives?   
    Non-religious old people are the biggest waste of oxygen on the planet. How do they live fulfilling lives? What special thing do they do? What positive, constructive thing do they contribute to humanity? All I see them doing is eating, vacationing if they’re rich, sleeping, consuming massive amount of government resources of health care, housing, nursing, etc., taking the dog for a walk, and watching TV.
    In their minds, they worked all their lives and deserve to just enjoy and relax in their retirement. But how is enjoying and relaxing a “fulfilling” life? There are extremely few non-religious elderly people that live meaningful, active lives. Most of them are just living the retired life. They have no concern with the Afterlife.
    As I recall, the great prophet Moses على نبينا وعليه السلام was eighty years old when he was sent to Pharaoh as a Prophet. Most 80 year olds don’t even have enough energy to speak continuously for an hour while seated without dozing off.
    I’m very disappointed in our older generation of today. Even the non-religious ones have no sense of civic responsibility. And religious elders should be more motivated to worship rather than just sitting around all day waiting to be fed, watching TV, etc. They should be filling the mosques, doing dhikr, praying nawafil, reading the Quran, engaging in Tabligh. That’s how the elders of previous Muslim generations lived.

    Cherub786 got a reaction from Hameedeh in Pakistani Shias, refute this anti-shia video   
    Once again, a great production and expose by anti-majos. Aqeel ul-Gharavi knows very well that bandagi is the standard Urdu translation of Ibadah, worship, and not service (ghulami, khidmat). He says we are incapable of doing Allah’s “bandagi” and can only do Ali’s “bandagi”. If he means obedience, then he has divided obedience to Allah from obedience to Ali رضى الله عنه, which means he believes sayyidina Ali رضى الله عنه came with a new Shari’ah different from the Shari’ah which Allah revealed to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. But it is obvious he was doing taqiyah by trying to explain bandagi as something other than worship while in the majlis he clearly meant worship.
    Without Tawhid you have no Islam.

    Please explain in light of the Islamic worldview (not your personal theology or lack thereof) how or why God is not a person.
    If by tashbih you mean God's immanence, as the clip from Murad is using that term, then I have no issue with it, but we avoid the term "tashbih" because it literally means resemblance.
    God is both transcendent and immanent. These are reflected in His Names al-Batin and al-Zahir respectively.
    That God is a person and is personal is part of His immanence.

    Since you revere Cambridge, let me quote the Cambridge dictionary. It says that person is “used when describing someone’s character” for example “she’s an extremely kind person”.
    Now I suppose you will deny God has a character.
    “Person” is also a grammatical construct: “used in grammar to describe the verbs and pronouns that refer to the different people in a conversation. The first person ("I" or "we") refers to the person speaking, the second person ("you") refers to the person being spoken to and the third person ("he", "she", "it", or "they") refers to another person or thing being spoken about or described:”
    Now this definition is very good, because it adds the fact that in third person what is being referred to or spoken about is not necessarily always a person but a “thing” too. For example, if I’m speaking about a rock, which isn’t a person, “it is very hard”.
    But according to Cambridge dictionary, first and second person can only refer to a person.
    Now if we read the Quran, God speaks in the first person plenty of times, and God is spoken to in the second person plenty of times. That is decisive proof, according to Cambridge, that God is a person.
    A non-person doesn’t say “I” and a non-person is not addressed as “you”.

    This is explicit proof that Islam teaches Allah is a person شخص
    وَلاَ شَخْصَ أَغْيَرُ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَلاَ شَخْصَ أَحَبُّ إِلَيْهِ الْعُذْرُ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ بَعَثَ اللَّهُ الْمُرْسَلِينَ مُبَشِّرِينَ وَمُنْذِرِينَ وَلاَ شَخْصَ أَحَبُّ إِلَيْهِ الْمِدْحَةُ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْجَنَّةَ
    No person is more jealous of his honor than Allah, and no person is more fond of accepting an excuse than Allah, on account of which He has sent Messengers, announcers of glad tidings and warners; and no person is more fond of praise than Allah on account of which Allah has promised Paradise (Sahih Muslim)
    In this blessed Hadith, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم affirmed the shakhsiyyah or personhood of Allah three times.

    Cherub786 got a reaction from Talk313 in Taboo Topic: Sister might be gay   
    Well honestly it’s not as serious a situation as male homosexuality. The sad part is if she really is a lesbian then obviously she will never agree to get married to a man for the rest of her life and will remain single. The more serious issue is that you say she doesn’t identify as a Muslim or doesn’t seem to believe in Islam. That’s actually the more alarming issue.
    As for lesbianism generally, it is a lot easier to address than male homosexuality. Women practising sexual things with other women is still sinful, but according to fiqh I don’t believe it falls under zina in the technical sense, but it is fahishah.
    So rebuking your sister for some suspected lesbianism while ignoring her overall disbelief in Islam is like a doctor expending all his effort trying to cure the common cold in a patient that is dying of cancer.

    Cherub786 got a reaction from Haji 2003 in Pakistani Shias, refute this anti-shia video   
    That’s your circular reasoning. The meaning of Tawhid should be obvious to any Muslim, it is to worship Allah alone. But your sect believe that the Imams are Allah’s partners and that you can pray to the Imams like how you pray to Allah. According to your sect both prayers “Allah grant me a son” and “Imam grant me a son” are valid prayers. Christians likewise don’t have Tawhid, so they pray “Father (God) grant me a son” and “Jesus grant me a son”, and Hindus also pray “Ram grant me a son” “Krisna grant me a son”.
    But we monotheistic Muslims pray to Allah alone.

    Cherub786 got a reaction from Debate follower in The Freedom of Speech (of taghut)   
    Let me just deconstruct this ridiculous claim for starters. Okay, “Wahhabism” is generally called by that name because it is attributed to Shaikh Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhab رحمة الله عليه whom I regard as the Mujaddid of his time, so yes you could say I personally am a Wahhabi.
    But the claim is this sect that is attributed to him was in reality created by the British for the purpose of undermining the Ottoman Empire.
    Let’s just examine this claim. Ibn Abd al-Wahhab died in 1792. He was a late 18th century Muslim preacher and revivalist. At that juncture in history, where were the British? They were still wearing powdered wigs and dealing with the American colonies, it was too early for their later imperialist designs regarding the Ottomans. So that claim you made is absolutely anachronistic.
    Furthermore, Ibn Abd al-Wahhab and Ibn Saud emerged from central Arabia which was never under Ottoman control to begin with.
    There is absolutely no evidence the British ever had any contact with an 18th century Bedouin preacher from central Arabia. Hempher’s Memoirs are a proven Turkish forgery, just like Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a proven Czarist Russian forgery. Only dimwitted conspiracy theory junkies actually take these texts seriously, such as the website you are quoting from.

    I don’t understand, how is me going to the Mosque resulting in starvation of unemployed people or affecting employment? Like I said, blame the government for unemployment and food insecurity. They implemented these lockdowns and restrictions that hit the common man the worst. The rich and powerful are still rich and powerful. It was all done in the name of old people with preexisting conditions. For their sake people lost their jobs in the millions, and people are unsure if they will have food on the table for themselves and their children tonight. Blame the government, blame the government, blame the government, blame China, blame WHO, blame Xi, blame that hideous baboon Tedros.
    But to answer your question, yes, communal religious activities are far more important than employment and other things that were restricted by the lockdowns.
    Of course not. No one should speak like that about their own parents.

    Does anyone actually think this formula will cure someone of sexual deviancy? This reminds me of the yellow sandal hadith thread started by brother @Rauf Murtuzov "It sharpens the vision, strengthens the penis and puts away the depression"
    The formula you have described is similar to the method of casting a magic spell or making a magic potion. Manipulation of natural elements in a seemingly arbitrary way to produce a supernatural result. Didn't Islam come to rid people of such superstitious behavior?

    Perhaps you can explain something. When Gharavi said “we can’t do Allah’s bandagi” what did he mean?
    What is the meaning of bandagi in that context, and why did he say we can’t do Allah’s bandagi, therefore we shouldn’t even try, instead we should do Ali’s bandagi.
    So there is a distinction between bandagi to Allah which Gharavi says there’s no use doing because it’s impossible, and bandagi to Ali.
    Please explain clearly what Gharavi’s aim is, what is he trying to say? If I am satisfied with the explanation I may even retract my earlier comments. See, I’m a very reasonable man.

    This is the purely linguistic definition of bandagi and not its technical or terminological meaning which is Ibadat.
    As you may know, even the Arabic word ibadah linguistically means servitude or slavery, such that the word for slave is abd. Yet in the Islamic terminology ibadah is reserved for Allah alone and it is not permissible for a master to address his slave as “abdi” but rather he is to refer to him as “ghulami”.
