  1. asSalaam I have to say that from a Quranic point ,brother peace seeker is 100%. I would also like to make an observation according to the Quran. The brother says and I quote: " I say ya Ali madad , in hopes of intercession in times of trouble." Allah says in: سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #155 "Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere," This verse states that Allah will test us in ways only Allah knows and since we don't know it is a test f
  2. asSalaam I agree it makes no sense. But if that is a fabrication then what is the genuine dua or is there none. Soloman
  3. asSalaam O Ali help. if i'm correct. This is asking for direct help from Ali and should be considered shirk. Thanks for the reply. Also I would like to know whether there is a continuation of this chanting or does it just stop abruptly with "ya Ali madad" Regards Soloman
  4. as Salaam What is the meaning of the phrase "Ya Ali madad" Reagards Soloman
  5. Hi Placid - Your quote: It is whether or not you believe what the Scripture says. - My response: Well, if the Scripture you refer to is the NT then I have to say it is a jumble of mixed-up theories , all designed to mislead people from the truth of Jesus. This NT have elements of truth but it is flawed with conjecture and theories based on the misgivings of the famous false prophet , Saul - Paul. Paul confessed that he was born for this task, hence the Pauline theories. It does not take a genius to see that Paul preached a different doctrine than Jesus, e.g --) 2 Corinthians 8 : 21 -21)for
  6. Hi Placid -Your quote: I will not disagree with you that righteousness in the OT involved keeping the law, --- but you had to keep the whole law, which even they failed to do. -My response: I will also not disagree with you that the Pharisees and Scribes did not keep the whole Law - hence the continual punishment and refinement they had to undergo for their disobedience. The Israelites were a stubborn nation, continually breaking the Law - The coming of Jesus was a point in time that ended their reign as Gods chosen people. This was the purpose of Jesus - He made miraculous signs among them ,
  7. Hi Placid - Your quote: There are certain OT verses that seem to condone hatred and murder. --- The fact that the ungodly had to be destroyed to allow the righteous to succeed, tells us that God had to make choices and show preferences. -My response: I don't believe God make choices , it is we His creation that have to choose ,either righteousness or unrighteousness. But what is righteousness ? I believe righteousness is whatever God have revealed in His Holy Revelations through all His Holy Prophets. Isaiah 42:21 -21) It pleased the Lord for the sake of his righteousness to make his law great
  8. Hi Placid - Your quote: --- And all the good verses you listed from the OT should have kept the Jews believing God’s love for them, --- but what happened was that they applied some of the commandments differently than the way they were written. --- (They didn't change the Scripture, they just misused it.) - My response: Your assessment that the Pharisees misused the Scripture is also what I believe but I also believe Christians are guilty of the same thing that you accuse the Pharisees of - wrongfully attributing the OT verses to suggest that Jesus is the promised King from Davids line. -Your
  9. Hi Placid Your quote: Yes, Jesus gave the new commandment of love, then said, "If you love me, keep my commandments. My response: The 'new commandment of love ' as you put it ,was actually not so new. Throughout the Old Scripture we are taught about God's LOVE. - Exodus 34:6 -6) And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in LOVE and faithfulness, - Numbers 14:18 -18) 'The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the chil
  10. Hi Placid -Your quote: Jesus had said to the disciples in John 13: 34 A new Commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” When the lawyer asked, what is the great commandment of the Law, Jesus answered in Matthew 22: 37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yours
  11. Hi Netzari -Your quote: I would like to point out that because Ishmael is descended from Abraham, all of his descendants should be circumcised! The Prophet Muhammad claimed descent from Ishmael, and many of his followers (in both Sunni and Shia tradition) were circumcised. Because Dar al-Islam follows the G-d of Abraham, Ishmael, and Muhammad--it seems fitting for all of them. That being said: -My response: Abraham had another six sons by Keturah, Genesis 25:2, She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was descended from Ishmael , which makes Hi
  12. Hi Placid - Your quote: - As Jesus said, and as Paul said, “We are no longer under the law, but under grace.” Jesus said, “Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees you will in no case enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” Matthew 5:20 - My response: Well, Paul also said "having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross." I am aware of Paul and your position concerning Jesus the Messiah, What you are saying in a nutshell is that one don't need to subscribe to the Law to achieve s
  13. Hi Placid -You quote: This is what the Scripture and history record, so that is all I can comment on. If you choose not to believe it, that is up to you. -My response: Well, the Scripture and History supports a 'GOOD FRIDAY' crucifixion rather than a 'GOOD WEDNESDAY' crucifixion, rather it is you modern day scholars that are continually revising your NT to conform with the OT. For the past 2000 years Christians believed Jesus Died on a Friday , in each Christian country on the globe Good Friday is upheld as a holy day -- is it not ? does history not support this ? According to your logic ,t
  14. Hi Placid So, the " GOOD FRIDAY " is now shifted to " GOOD WEDNESDAY" Your WEDNESDAY crucifixion theory is a desperate attempt to reconcile Jesus to the sign of Jonah. -Your quote: The Bible Dictionary says: Quote: The Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread really form a double Festival. The Feast of Unleavened Bread began the day after Passover and lasted seven days. --- End of quote. - My response: Some history on Jewish festival days; - The Jews had 7 Festival Days - or Days of holy convocation Nisan 14/15 -1st day of Passover week , Nisan 20/21 , Pentecost , Tishri 1 , Tishri 9/10
