    IloveImamHussain got a reaction from Northwest in Narjis Al-khatoon   
    Personally, I don't think this subject is worth discussing.
    Never heard of that.
    And by the way, Rizvi Syeds are the fairest looking and handsomest people I have come across. And I am not talking about Iran or Iraq, where people are light skinned anyway, but about India where Syeds are generally good-looking compared to the rest of the population. And Rizvi Syeds (descendents of our eightth Imam) are the fairest and handsomest. That is my experience anyway.

    Let us suppose He did. Does it automatically and necessarily follow that He is not Benevolent ?
    I doubt it.
    The question whether He has to be Benevolent or not has been correctly responded to you by Leto. God does not have to be anything in particular. He does not have to, as it were, prove Himself, like you and I need to.
    However, the Islamic belief is that God is infinitely Benevolent and also infinitely Just.
    Actually, His benevolence is of two types - Rahman and Raheem. Rahman means that He is infinitely Benevolent to everyone equally. Raheem means that His Benevolence is proportional to the individuals' performance. The better person will see more of it.
    So combining the three aspects - Rahman (Benevolent to all), Raheem (Benevolent according to your merit) and Aadil (Just) means that He may not appear equally benevolent to everyone at all times.
    That is why we see rewards and punishments. But because of His being benevolent to all, He provides us with our needs all the time. He withdraws them sometimes in order to test us in our distress. But by and large, He looks after His creation.
    The Quran claims that if we were to count His blessings, they are so innumerable that we would never finish the task.
    [16:18] And if you would try and count God's Blessings, you would not be able to. Indeed, God is Gracious and Merciful!
    The mother’s love for the child is a good analogy. No one can love you more than your mother. But her love also has two aspects. So while she loves the child all the time, when the child disobeys her, she could give him some very hard punishment. Mothers are known to have challenged their children in court. Does it mean they don’t love them ? They do but their love, like God’s, has two aspects – one constant and unchanging and the other changing according to the child’s behaviour.
    Hope you get the picture.

    Because it is easy to wish to be one but hard to fulfill what needs to be done, which could include massive sacrifices.
    Most of us are not motivated enough to make big sacrifices.
    It is easy to cry during Muharram and sing praises of the Ahlul Bayt but how many of us have the character the make huge sacrfices.

    I'm not overly sure who does what or who prays to whom in most of the churches. Protestants basically pray to God, then again some groups pray to their dead relatives. I've always had trouble with the chain of command, so I'll continue to pray to God. Jesus said, "If you ask anything in my name...", which is why you will hear Christians close a prayer with "In Jesus name, amen".

    True.
    However, we don't really pray to our Imams.
    The Islamic view is that all of God's top brass are essentially alive.
    (Q. 2:154) talks specifically about those who have lost their lives for the sake of God.
    But the premise can also be extended to others among God's choicest men and women.
    And the Shia view is that we can even ask them for assistance in resolving our problems.
    They are alive and have the power and ability to attend to us.
    But prayer in the sense of worship - that is only the Lord's prerogative.

    You are right.
    There is no need to criticize anyone to exalt someone else.
    But to keep the facts of history alive, we must not abandon a critical study of everyone's life, including the Prophet's family and friends, 
    Otherwise history will pass into the dust heap and be forgotten.

    IloveImamHussain got a reaction from PureExistence1 in What can you do in Heaven? (Jannah/Paradise)   
    Salam, You are right.
    If we have complete happiness in heaven in every way, there should be no need of an additional pleasure that we experience in this world.
    Thus it is completely understandable that there would be no sex or drugs in heaven.
    Our relations with people around us and with our friends and partners will be based on friendship.
    But then, many questions do arise.
    For example, will any undeserving people go to heaven?
    God will have to draw the line somewhere.
    But where?
    It is not conceivable that everyone will be forgiven and end up in heaven..   
    Is it possible that there are many different types of heavens - depending on how good you are?.
    It is hardly possible that a prophet and a borderline believer would be in the same heaven.
    Or that the likes of Yazid and the borderline disbeliever will be in the same hell.

    The attempt to download the condensed list failed.
    Tried 4 times. 
    Is the problem with my computer or with my Internet?
    But don't worry, I know that my sins are so numerous that paper will run out and the ink will dry up before they can be fully written down.
    Therefore I am relying entirely on God's mercy.
    But I still don't understand why everyone with a pass ( 51% - 100%) should go to the same heaven.
    Or everyone with a fail (0% - 49%) should all share the same hell. 
    And what will happen to those on the border, who neither passed nor failed, but managed to get more than 49% but less then 51%? 
    My feeling is that there is a lot more to it than our scholars and our books tell us. 
    Only God knows the answers while, thanks to the Internet, we argue endlessly over nothing.

    Brother,
    Sorry to interrupt your beautiful discussion. 
    But I think the Sermon on the Mount sums up the same teachings as the Quran.
    And it sounds reasonable to assume that all prophets had the same teachings because they all came from God.

    That is not a very courteous way of criticizing someone. And this is certainly not the style of discussion that Islam expects from us.  
     
     
    You cannot judge a book on the basis of just a few verses.  
     
    Besides, just as in case of the Quran, you need to know the full context in order to understand  a given verse.
     
    I hope you are aware that there are some verses in the Quran which taken singly can also be subject to criticism. 
     
    In fact, enemies of Islam use those verses with considerable ease to try and put down Islam.
     
    You don't want anyone here to take that path.
     
    Do you?
