  1. In the Quran as I read there are parts that state that we should do a certain thing but no punishment is written together with it. It looks obligatory but other verses seem to sometimes point that it was in fact just recommended for example: "And marry the unmarried among you and the righteous among your male slaves and female slaves. If they should be poor, Allah will enrich them from His bounty, and Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.." (24:32) looking at this, it would appear that it is obligatory for us to marry if we are single but no punishment stated if we don't. Yet then I see verses like these: "And the women who are past child bearing and who do not seek to get married have no sin upon them if they put-off their garments, provided they are not adorned for beauty. And if they remain as they were, then it is better for them. God is Hearer, Knower." (24:60) This would make it seem that it is okay if we choose not to marry as 24:60 shows it without any condemnation. Thus it would make Marriage appear only recommended. Thus it has got me thinking as to when we read to Quran, how do we decipher something as recommended or obligatory? Another one I've seen is about friday prayers: "O you who believe, if the communion is called to on the day of assembly, then you shall hasten towards the remembrance of God, and cease all selling. This is better for you, if you only knew." (62:9) shias as I know consider this for example as only recommended and not obligatory. Sunnis in the case of marriage and friday prayers seem to always say it is obligatory on the other hand even though the marriage one would contradict 24:60 then. Like with charity, it is stated that if we don't pay it that it is a bad thing, thus making it obligatory. Yet here there is nothing condemning these. Is that the difference between obligatory and recommendation? Thus why I wanna know as I said is how do I tell the difference between an obligation and a recommendation in the Quran? Thanks :)
  2. Sorry i'm late on this post. Well I understand good deeds nullifying bad ones but then how about when judged where our good deeds have to outweigh our bad? Clearly the bad would refer to sins one has not asked for forgiveness as tawbah erases sins. Is the erasing of bad deeds by means of good deed refer to that final judgment? And thus when it states if one indeed WILL go to hell for doing such a thing as stated almost makes it seem contradictory a s if that deed will send yoh to hell regardless of the promised scale judgment thus why I would want a better explanation to understand that :apa
  3. Peace both, I understand that already as i've stated above and thank you. My question referred to not liking a law of God such as the forbiddence of drinking or requirement of both even though one would observe both these laws cause he has to.
  4. So this verse has been bugging me recently: "And He will punish the hypocrite men and the hypocrite women, and the idolater men and the idolater women, who think evil thoughts about God. Their evil will come back to them, and God was angry with them, and He has cursed them and prepared for them Hell. What a miserable destiny!" (48:6) I know it states that its the hypocrite and idolator that will be punished for this stuff and I have assumed that the evil thoughts therefore must be thoughts of believing God having partners or God not helping the believers. However I am unsure of what it means exactly by "evil thoughts". Clearly we can't think of things like doing damage to God as based on our beliefs is impossible and rather unimaginable due to our concept of God. So I assume that it extends to his oneness, as in commiting shirk and therefore believing in a partner to God or his traits as in one believing he isn't all knowing or all seeing, and even his promises such as someone not believing that he will not help the rightous bring rightousness to the world as some of the hypocrites believes in 48:12 when they thought the Prophet and his army were dead and were happy at the idea that they weren't helped. The thing that really bugs me here is does this extend to not liking one of your obligations or things that are forbidden even though you will obey? Such as one who may not like how God has stated that he has to fast but will still do it cause he required to, or someone who wants to drink alcohol and doesn't like how he can't but doesn't do so cause he obeys God. Do evil thoughts extend to that? I remember reading a sunni commentary saying so, but I felt that just want too burdensome as the person is still obeying God afterall. Anyways what is everyones opinion here?
  5. Oh wow thank you very much ^_^ I guess being in a dream is kinda like being brain dead... God I would not think judge someone for their action cause of being brain dead afterall, just as how a child isn't judged cause they aren't aware of good or bad.
  6. Understood :) Well I guess the the question begs that are we judged on what we doing when we are intoxicated? For example say this guy got drunk (yes at this point he has sinned for drinking) and did some more sins while in that state. Because he was intoxicated, does he get judged for what he did in the state where he wasn't thinking clearly (in addition to the drunkiness) or is he blamesworthy for all of it? Anyways while I understand repentance is always there, the one thing is that I simply don't want to ever commit or be guilty of shirk. Its just such a horrendous crime that I never want to be near it and thus want to rationalize if I indeed am blamesworthy here?
  7. I guess, sorry there. Well regardless anyone have anything else to contribute to this?
  8. That type of dream is totally unlike mine. You simply died in yours, mine related to doing the biggest sin. True, but I didn't need thinking to know that Shirk is wrong. But while I do hear that we aren't held responsible for dreams, its the idea that shirk is more a state rather than the physical acts we do that bothers me. Like I can kill a person is a dream but I never actually did, but believing that thing was God in my dream for that brief instance even though my mind was not working properly at that time cause it was a dream is was terrifies me really.
  9. Good point, but its just that for that brief period I actually seemed to believe... sure I didn't have my logic with me and didn't remember any of Gods words to keep me away from that cause of my state at that time, but its just that me believing scares me :(
  10. I honestly don't think God will make you dream about shirk...something like that sounds very satanic i'd think. Anyways does anyone have any more answers? Am I blamesworthy? and if so or not why?
  11. But it seems to have only stirred up more fear :/ You know that dream as I said reminds me of intoxication even though i've never been intoxicated before and that when I snapped out of those Shirk feelings mid dream I instantly resented them even though I was a sleep. Though what simply does scare me is how I actually was believing those until I took notice.
  12. Well if I were to guess, I'd think it be my great fear of shirk which I always am running away from and thus why it being hard to "wake up from that nightmare". The dream did though eventually switch to a restaurant with friends though.
  13. I understand but what simply scares me I guess is how me in the dream was beliving it for some reason. I have a theory though. One is a montheist in real life due to the rememberance of God and the rules he has provided us. In the dream I am in more or less an "intoxicated" state if you wanna call the clouded mind as such. Thus not remember God nkr the Quran led my dream self to go astray until I gained some consciousness in the dream. What do you think?
  14. I really am not a nationalist. I know nothing about mythology nor much about Zoroastrianism to even get knowledge of such. But really am I blamesworthy? I always and already know God is beyond everything and in realblife don't believe God is that, but regardless am scared :(
  15. I understand that, but I thought I still have some control in them...don't I?
