  1. Wa’alaykum Salaam Peshawar Nights is a fictional writing. Its creditability is carries the same weight as that of WWE - World Wrestling Entertainment http://www.islamicweb.com/beliefs/cults/beshawer.htm And thanks to brothers Cyrax & Ali bin Hussein for a great, very civil, and knowledgeable debate.
  2. Brother, all Sunnis without any exception believe all above were Muslims. I am sure Shia brothers are on the same belief. Brother, if you want to have it this way then why not give the Sunnis start from Shiatul Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him)
  3. Brother, Sunnis do follow AhlulBayt (may Allah be pleased with them all). In fact, Sunnis have more members of AhlulBayt (may Allah be pleased with them all) then select few.
  4. Brother, I agree with you that ‘Sirat ul Mustaqeem (straight path) is narrow.’ The Blessed Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) has explained the Blessed Quran very well and left nothing unexplained. The Blessed Quran has clearly stated that the core of Book has been clearly stated. And we are warned seeking deeper meanings of other ayah other than what the ayahs state. Only those with deviation in their hearts will try to go for deeper interpretations. Those firmly rooted in knowledge do not try to seek deeper for looking for meanings other than what is obvious. It i
  5. I beg to differ. Sunni Muslims have shown historically that they have ability to ‘bounce back’ to supremacy. They withstood the assault by Christian Europe in 9 majors Crusades from 1096 – 1303 C. E and defeated them thoroughly. They withstood the assault by Mongols from 1260 – 1400 and defeated them thoroughly. As it has been foretold in hadith that Muslims rulers will the scum. On the authority of Thawbaan (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “The People will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invi
  6. I agree with you 100% and I believe that we have entered this era. Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “A time of patience will come to people in which adhering to one’s religion is like grasping a hot coal.” Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2260
  7. I agree there will not be reliable statistics, as there no official register to keep track of this. But certainly, there is very slight but significant trend towards apostasy among Muslims noticeably in the western countries and to lesser extent in the Muslims countries. Muslims should not close their eyes like proverbial pigeons to this phenomenon. Apostasy among Muslims is there and growing. Even some scholars talk of tsunami of apostasy among second third generation of Muslims. List of ex-Muslim organisations (Of course these are well funded by big powers behind the scenes for their v
  8. Wa’alaykum Salaam brother, I completely agree with you in this. Generally, Shias take Sunnis to be nasibis, so, dismiss their (very) large numbers ‘as crowd gathered on falsehood. But then within Shia Islam, Zaydis can turn around the same argument, that you are forwarding, against you (Twelver Shias). According to Zaydi Shia, Twelver Shia are greater crowd gathered on falsehood. [or] among those who have broken the unity of their faith and have become sects, each group delighting in but what they themselves hold [by way of tenets] - Ayah 32 Surah ar-Rum
  9. Brother, I completely agree with you that ‘Muslims have always been outnumbered by non-Muslims. And the Blessed Quran testifies to this. And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly. 103 Surah Yusuf And even if We had sent down to them the angels and the dead had spoken to them and We had brought together all things before them, they would not believe unless Allah pleases, but most of them are ignorant:111 Surah An’aam Or do they say: There is madness in him? Nay! he has brought them the truth, and most of them are averse from the truth 70 Surah al-Muminun
  10. May Allah Almighty Grant him high rank in Jannatul Firdaus - Ameen And responding to your post - It's definitely by design - by secularists to undermine religious values
  11. Yes, its Great. I would say very Great! Even in this difficult times, bad press and horrible & inexcusable actions of ISIS, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. And this mostly applies to Sunni Islam. Of course, nobody can deny apostasy among Sunni Muslims. Comparatively it is very tiny. This is completely offset by new conversions. And the net gain is very satisfying. Figures speak much louder. This completely debunks your post. It seems more like your wish! Muslim population growth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_population_growth Conversion
  12. It is human nature to opt out any ‘system’ one is not comfortable with. There is no exception for Muslims. Those who were on the fringe, like very liberal & secular parents or no Islamic upbring from the beginning. Such ‘Muslims’ grow up having very negative image of their inherited religion. Thus, they have sort of inferiority complex of their inherited religion. Once they come of age and join Universities they easily get swayed by other ‘isms’ Of course, Sunni Islam is not immune from apostasy as is Shia Islam. But proportionally apostasy is very much higher in Shia Islam. I have m
  13. Salaam, In my opinion your silence has been the best response. Be patient, soon your patience will bear fruit. Your silence has put you on moral/righteous high ground. You can not respond to them at their level. Wise man does not respond to ‘barking dogs’ in kind. Golden words by Hazrat Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) Safety lies in silence. It is easier to rectify what you miss by silence, than to secure what you lose by speaking.
  14. I think that we must make a clear distinction between standing up for one to express honour and love and standing up for those in authority! Acceptability of standing up: Standing up for parents, grandparents, uncles & aunts, elderly and children for respect and honouring is from Sunnah of the Blessed Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). We can see this from the following Blessed sunnah of the Blessed Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Sayyida A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reports: “I have never encountered anyone that resembled the Messenger
