  1. I am not concerned with Abu Hurarah or anyone else, and I will accept that he might be an unreliable narrator. I just wish to know what this statement means. Can you help me?
  2. Can someone please translate the following hadith: Úä ÃÈí åÑíÑÉ ÑÖí Çááå Úäå ÞÇá : ÞÇá ÑÓæá Çááå Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÓáã : ÅÐÇ ÌÇãÚ ÃÍÏßã ÝáÇ íäÙÑ Åáì ÇáÝÑÌ ÝÅäå íæÑË ÇáÚãì æáÇ íßËÑ ÇáßáÇã ÝÅäå íæÑË ÇáÎÑÓ I do not know if it is sahih; I am not saying it is right or wrong. I just want to ascertain the correct translation of this hadith. PLease, some one?
  3. Of course! Atheists are against the religions because people of each of the religions think that their religion is the truest of all, and commit many atrocities in the name of religion. They do it because of their false belief that their religion is true. Unfortunately none of them question and critically examine their faith, and as a result humanity suffers a lot and unnecessarily. Otherwise, no atheist worth his salt would bother if you believe in a monkey God, an elephant God, or an unimaginable God.
  4. I read the quoted text, and there is hardly anything which I do not agree with. Now please tell me how Islam or its teaching or the Islamic beliefs are related to it.
  5. Hello Smiley, Do you think I care about being banned from this site at all? I have been arguing against the blasphemy and apostasy laws all the time. But I can only argue against the illogic of such laws, I can't change them. I thought there was a difference between an Islamic country and an Islamic forum. I did not denigrate your prophet or lay any false accusations against him. And I have not said ANYTHING about ahlubait at all. Ban me immediately if you wish, and keep the faith of the believers intact. I had a quite fruitful discussion with skinee at this forum and I am quite satisfied with my stay here.
  6. Please tell me what is this disease and how it can be cured.
  7. Hello Sayyyed, you missed my point. I said that matter or energy did not ever begin nor it can be destroyed; that is exactly what the laws of conservation state. If matter or energy cannot be created, where is the scope of any creator? If God can be "uncreated", why can't the universe itself be uncreated? Think over it. Some one on this forum was complaining that I was always on the offensive asking questions, and I offered him a chance to be on the offensive and start asking questions to me. He backed out. I make you the same offer; ask me as many questions as you can think of. I wouldn't hide behind "GOD" for any question I do not know the answer of. The universe never BEGAN; it was there all the time for eternity (search and read about "eternal universe" on the internet). And no, everything is still NOT working PERFECTLY. I can tell you about numerous things which are NOT working perfectly. Please, please search "God of the gaps" on google and read one or two articles about this phrase. When you wish to argue with an atheist or agnostic, it helps to learn about their arguments beforehand.
  8. Edit: You can't say that stuff here. Note forum rules:
  9. If you wish I can play the game starting from asking you to name a thing you want to ask about. If that thing is a man made thing, I will say man created it. If that thing is natural and alive, I will say evolution (natural selection) did it. And if you name an inanimate thing, I will say I do not know. To cut the long "logic" short, if you are going to tell me that the universe HAS to be created by someone, and that someone is God, I will then ask you who created God. You will say God is the first cause or the uncaused cause, and eternal, I will tell you that the universe is uncaused and eternal, and you have no evidence that God exists, while we don't need any evidence for the existence of the universe. I have evidence for an eternal universe because the laws of conservation state that Matter/Energy cannot be created nor destroyed; they can merely be converted to each other as per the formula given by Einstein. So, if matter/energy is eternal, the universe has to be eternal, so there is no need for any creator God. To disprove my argument, you will have to prove these laws of conservation wrong. Good luck.
  10. The moral laws of a secular society are/will be based on the Golden Rule. And yes, it is fully reasonable to change one's opinion as the world is changing too. The rules regarding the cleanliness (toilet etiquette) in the 7th century no longer apply because the world have moved far ahead of that time. The moral laws of a secular society, arrived at by opinion of the people, is bound to be better than a law devised by any individual even if he is Muhammad. All the religious codes are also devised by mere humans. The claims of divine origin do not make them so. The basis for enforcing the new values or norms on the society as a whole is based on opinion of the people. And that is how they learned; by trial and error. No God came to them or sent his messenger to tell them how to grow their crops.
  11. This zindeeq raises questions which create doubts in the minds of pious believers. He shakes their faith, and is spreading, what do you call it, fitna? LOL. Ban him pronto. Don't let the believers be exposed to worldviews other than what Islam teaches. As long as they keep away from such basic and probing questions, their faith would remain intact and strong. I too recommend banning Charleslemartel immediately. 1. The better option would be to ban me. My posts and threads will continue to rankle and hurt otherwise :) 2. They learned their lessons well it seems, LOL. Do you post there with the nick "YahyaSnow"? Which other Muslim forum do you advise me to join, some Sunni forum? LOL. The life at Islamic forums is so cosy and warm until some one comes along and starts asking controversial (difficult) questions, no?
  12. So let us both of us say that we are agnostics. So it was irrelevant; any statement does not become true or acceptable to me only because I like mysticism and many mystics have said that. I never said or implied that the reality I was talking about was something supernatural. There is nothing supernatural about miseries getting alleviated if desires drop off. It is not because you can't, or you don't know, it is because there is no reconciliation between what you said and what Allah says. Only a fake reconciliation is possible, and that too in a believing mind, by simply ignoring the contradiction or refusing to juxtapose the two concepts. And there are plenty of evidence many Islamic p.o.v. that these things are real and literal. Right you are. As a parting message, I would just like to tell you that your experience had nothing to do with any belief or religion; it can and does happen to atheists, polytheists, Christians, and any other people. No belief is necessary to experience or see reality.
  13. So what did Allah wanted us to understand by "seven heavens"? Are you a Jafari? LOL. To a Sunni, the Sunni sect is the true sect, and similarly to each of the 71 or so sects in Islam, their own sect is the true sect. The problem with believers is that they accept anything their religious authorities tell them. Do you have ANY evidence for those 124000 prophets? If Islam was the truth, it wouldn't fear anything and wouldn't restrict preaching of other religions in the Islamic countries. If it was the truth, it wouldn't force a Muslim to remain Muslim till death. No scientist or science book threatens you with death or hell if you ridicule his/its theories. You want to argue against evolution? Well, you are welcome to. You wouldn't be punished for not believing in evolution. At the most people may call you a fool and ignorant. And Islam IS getting exposed all over the world, now that the facility of writing anonymously has become possible for people. Risking life by one or a billion men constitutes of no evidence. The first miracle is being performed on probably a daily basis by people who are cornered by attackers, LOL. The second (spider's net) is also not a miracle which keeps happening every night in front of the gate of my garden. The pigeon's eggs are not more than a simple coincidence. The third one has been debunked so many times, that I do not even feel like bringing here something to debunk that miracle again. However, I will debunk your claims through Quran itself. Here is what Ali Sina wrote on the miracles of Muhammad: (http://www.islam-watch.org/AliSina/MuhammadMiracles.htm) Here is something for you to ponder from a rebuttal from Suhail Khalid to the above article by Ali Sina (http://www.quransearch.com/suhail_khalid/Miracles.htm) -------------------------------- If that is the standard of proof for you, this is going to be the last response from my side to your posts. This challenge is ridiculous. I can challenge you to write a simple three word sentence similar to, "I love you" with rhyme and meaning in ENGLISH, and you won't be able to write it; after all it is I who will judge whether you succeeded or not, LOL. There already are websites meeting the challenge of Quran (http://www.suralikeit.com/). Where are those proofs? Oh, I forgot, the Quran of course. LOL. Okay, let us not waste each other's time anymore.
