  1. Coincidentally, this following clip was uploaded on YouTube five days ago. https://youtu.be/ik5CRalZv6o
  2. There are plenty of citations; however, for this specific claim, he cites Tafsir al-Qurtubi.
  3. It's clear that Iblees and jinns have offspring. The next question is, do they reproduce sexually or asexually? We ought to be careful to not make anthropomorphic assumptions. In so many obvious ways, jinns are nothing like us. So, we shouldn't assume they reproduce sexually, like us, through intercourse and with sexual organs. So, the question remains, do jinns have sexual organs or not? We have narrations that speak about how having intercourse in the wrong manner or time invites Shaytan to join in and participate in the sexual activity. However, clearly, no jinn suddenly a
  4. How do you know this? There's no indication that this was the case. Any narration or verse to support this claim?
  5. There's no Dhureyya in this verse. Are you thinking of a different verse? قبیلة or tribe doesn't necessarily imply jinn offspring. Its scope is wider and can include "followers" or "like-minded others."
  6. سلام I'm currently reading a book called, Sexuality in Islam. It's written by a Sunni author. There's a claim in it, which is linked to Sunni hadith narrations, stating that Iblees is an asexual/non-sexed being, who was very jealous of Adam due to Adam having a sexual organ. In addition, apparently, Adam's penis was the first organ that was created and gifted to him. Do our narrations support any of these claims? Thank you
  7. This is a good post. You're right. So, it's clear that God can exist without anything else existing. He is self-sufficient, unlike anything else. He is الغنی So, His nafs/نفس can exist alone. His nafs is His essence, not His attributes or names. The latter, His attributes and names, can only exist, meaningfully, in relation to other existing things. Although His attributes are "within" His nafs, they're not necessarily one and the same, since one can exist self-sufficiently, and the other can't. Makes sense?
  8. Another way to think about this question is to ask: Could God exist without anything else existing? In realm of existence, can there be nothing but God? Nothing at all! Material or immaterial!
  9. You're, again, circumventing the actual question. The question isn't about the role, the form, or the shape of creations. The question is about the very existence of things. Could God choose to not have created things? Everything that we know about or from God is in relation to things that exist.
  10. The question isn't, why did God create us, or could God not create us. Rather it is, could God not have created anything at all. As I said in my first post:
  11. Do you have the sanad for this narration? And the book it comes from?
  12. You're just reframing the question. The question remains the same: Could God not want to create anything at all? Could God not want to be worshipped?
  13. Read what you wrote carefully. For Him to be "The most powerful over everything" there must be things in existence. If there was nothing in existence, then your claim would be meaningless. Right. He needs to be worshipped. He needs worshippers, necessarily. Therefore, the existence of worshippers is a necessity. This implies that He has no choice but to create worshippers, for Him to be worshipped.
  14. The big-picture and main point is: If God didn't have a choice to not create things, then it's senseless to ponder the purpose of creation. Things are created because they had to be. No choice implies no purpose. It's a completely different question to ask: Did God have a choice to create things as they are? The answer is, He most certainly did. He could've created things differently, in different forms and fashions.
