  1. Offcourse anything with Boston cream in it!!
  2. Salam, I don’t believe it is haram to visit him or anyone dead with the right intention of love. I just don't want to infringe on a major tenant of our belief system. So what is appropriate? Well it's easy, treat any grave visits as if that was your mother or father. You pray for them and express your grief in the appropriate manner. The other issue is do we really know who is buried in these shrines? We really can't say conclusively and saying otherwise is wishful thinking. Also perhaps unrelated, but I find the Shia's infatuation with grief over the death of someone so unr
  3. What is the purpose of throwing letters in lakes and into graves? This is very problematic and sad that some Shias would be jump roping with shirk. I say this for your own good, stay away from these primitive rituals which have no role in Islam.
  4. So as it relates to the entrance of the unknown Masjid in surah Israh, no it wouldn't be Masjid Alharam for a few reasons. If that is what you're asking? The only viable candidate in my opinion is some sort of Jewish temple that will be controlled by the Jewish people. The other issue which I think confuses some people is the Masjid Al-Aqsa mentioned in the first part of Surah Israh does not necessarily have anything to do with the Jewish Masjid that is referred to a few verses later. There's nothing to suggest otherwise from the Surah aside from the two topics being in the same Sur
  5. Salam, I'm not really sure. I don’t think we know conclusively, I did open a topic similar to this about Solomon's temple and if the Qur'an prophesies it.
  6. Nice you got to visit but that's not Masjid Al-Aqsa being referred to in the Qur'an
  7. I'm more inclined to believe it was a mosque in the vicinity of Mecca or Medina. One thing is obvious however, it's definitely not in Jerusalem as there was no such Masjid In Jerusalem at that time. I'm not saying it wasn't a heavenly Masjid, just that the issue of Isra has been greatly exaggerated and thus it's difficult to assess anything more than what the Qur'an says. This could have been merely a dream. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows best.
  8. If anyone tells you the Qur'an has been preserved as it was orated from the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), just hand them a copy of any known Uthmani manuscript and tell them to read it. Offcourse they won't be able to despite knowing Arabic because they'll run into many words which could be read in different ways.
  9. Mujtaba Alshirazi should be admitted into a mental facility. He has absolutely no credibility with his foul mouth.
  10. That's a good question and most will try to beat around the question. The Sunni argument about all qirat are from God is just nonsense, most of these changes have come about through easily understood processes. There was only one revelation to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). ONE. I have written a topic about this before that may be very helpful. When the Qur'an was collected they didnt have printing presses and microsoft word. The Qur'an was conanized and sent all across the Arab world. Aside from LITERALLY COPY ERRORS , the arabs in a different region read the script an
  11. I'd build a spaceship that can go as fast as the speed of light and make first contact with aliens. Then conspire with them to build the first galactic loan shark business, using Bitcoin.
  12. Salam, I agree that the original Solomon's temple is not necessarily situated inside the western wall, it is more likely the western wall was an outer perimeter of a Roman military compound. However, that doesn't exclude the rebuilding of such temple even if the size and location does not correspond to the orginal construction. But given the current climate, it's far more likely the Dome of the Rock will be leveled and a temple built in its place or vicinity. The destruction of the Dome of the Rock wouldn't strictly be a religious decision rather a political one to finally eras
  13. Salam, As is known in Surah al-isra, an unidentified force will enter an unknown Masjid on the height of the second corruption. It is assumed based on the historicity of the Jewish issue, the Qur'an is referring to some sort of mosque or temple in Jerusalem. What I find interesting is that the verse in question ( 17:7) states this temple or mosque has been conquered before. Solomon's temple seems to be the only candidate for this scenario as the Dome of the Rock and the now known Masjid Al-Aqsa are both relics that post date Islam. So assuming the verse in question is a r
  14. I always say, if you want God to chase and haunt you , have some doubt. Because he'll come for you and you will know he is the truth. But to the OPs point, this is one of reasons why I've become a Quranist- because there is massive cultural/societal influence on Islam / sectarianism. When in reality, Islam is flexible and can fit different lifestyles.
  15. All these stories are nonsense. Also magic isn't real in the sense people understand it today. Read the Qur'an folks instead of believing these unsubstantiated myths.
  16. Solution: Move out as soon as possible. You guys will just have to deal with it until then. Talking to them will likely yield little help.
  17. It's not speculative. it's the Qurans position. I'll have to do a write up on it sometime.
  18. Also when you die it is likely you won't see or feel anything until the resurrection. But that will be short because when you do finally wake up it'll feel as if you were asleep for few hours, despite being in the ground for billions of year.
  19. You won't hear this often but in my assessment Jinn are aliens created before mankind and they live on another planet. They are much more advanced than us in space flight and technology. I suspect we will meet them in the near future , and certain factions of humans will make an alliance with them. They are very similar to us in many ways. Meeting them will advance our technology many times from current levels. Also there will likely be inter galactic wars between the various creatures in the universe. Humans and Jinn will likely work together in some aspects.
  20. Sounds about right lol , the goat must've ate that verse.
  21. What does the Qur'an say? Anyone ever consider that?
  22. The simplest explanation here works. As I stated before the omission or addition of letters and words is scriber error from duplication of Qurans without modern technology. It is a natural consequence of writing from that time period. That and the fact early manuscripts lacked phonetics so allowed anyone to extrapolate whatever they deemed to be accurate.
  23. I can see why you would hold such position. But I don't believe in Imamah as twelvers do or infallibility. The story about Allah revealing the Qur'an in numerous ahruf is a fabrication and silly as these inconsistencies in text mostly arise from a single text. Meaning the collection of the Qur'an during Uthmans period into one version could've been read numerous ways. This wasn't necessarily intentional, it was as a result of primitve writing without phonetics. So you and I could read it differently and both could be sound. Furthermore I theorize that when Qur'an was distributed to vario
