I have just finished two "documentary" videos on separate topics. I want us to use this thread to talk about our thoughts and views on the road we are headed as "man". How our intellect, ability, and faith play a role in this...Viewer Discretion is advised... One is on man-made food source in which we can possibly live on. It is foretold that man will surpass its resources due to higher and higher population rates. One software engineer experiments and makes this powder to liquid base content in which keeps you full, so that you do not need to waste lots of money and the need for food is pretty much gone. He says that why should man depend on agriculture and such. It is a thing of the past and soon to be unavailable. It has not been tested by the FDA except that it has been called as a dietary supplement. So a man takes it as an experiment and uses it for 30 days. Is such a thing possible to help sustain mankind's existence in the future? I tend to believe Allah will always provide sources (i.e. natural foods) for mankind regardless how the future may be headed. But then again, verses in which Allah says "I will not change the situation of mankind, until they change themselves" comes to mind. In this video, they bring a man which has done a study to show how food shortages and high prices correlate with revolts and social disruption such as the arab spring. This makes me wonder too.... The next video was a man who takes a biochip and implants it into his arm. He takes about how he wants man to live and if we have to intellect we can make it possible. He believes biochip implants, turning man into half robot as the solution. One thing in the video that makes me wonder was how it mentions that the health organizations do not let these people do these implants because the society of the time does not consider it "normal". The man then uses the notion of breast enlargements as a joke towards the norm of society. I think to myself, what if society enabled testing of such sorts on humans, how far would we go? What might the norm be then? That is how far we might already be going if everything was truly open to us. Yes Allah has given us intellect, but of course there is no way man could become immortal. This is what a believer’s logic is put at. These videos some what put me off edge. It makes me uncomfortable. Its kind of like going against Allah, fighting his system. The video about the creation of a new source of food doesnt play a huge role in trying to go against Allah. But more of how might we survive and such. Also how the oppressed plays a role in mankind. Just my thoughts.... (wasalam)
In The Name of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. Assalamualaykum wa RAHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATOH. I hope you all are, INSHALLAH (God Willing), well and in the best of health and Faith (Imaan). I remember once hearing a lecture whereby the speaker talking about the Jinns and the story of Iblis being ousted from Paradise. Now, the speaker had said before Adam (as) had been created, Jinns were already existing and that Allah (SWT) had sent a severe punishment on the Jinns for their disobedience but Iblis was the best of the Jinns who used to worship him a lot so Allah (SWT) has raised up to the seventh Heaven to live alongside Jibrail (as) when the Jinns were punished due to his high levels of worship. Then, the angels of the first heaven (sky) had come to know from Allah (SWT) that he was going to do something - I don't remember what exactly it was but it something that the angels got worried about. According to what he had said, the angels also have classes and levels and, so, the angels of the first heaven are inferior to those of the second heaven who, in turn, are inferior to those of the third heaven and so on while the angels of the seventh Heaven are the most superior. So, the lecturer had said these first heaven angels started to panic that this bad thing - as I have said, I don't remember what exactly it was - which Allah (SWT) had mentioned may happen to them so they so went to the angels of the second heaven in order to ask them to intercede for them but these second heaven angels, themselves got worried about what if it was for them and they, in turn, went to angels of the third heaven and so until they all reached the four biggest angels until, at last, they all reached Jibrail (as) who also got worried and suggested they all go to Iblis and ask him to pray to Allah (SWT) because he was so special to Allah (SWT) that He had raised to live with Jibrail (as). So, they all went to Iblis and asked him to pray on their behalf to which he agreed and then, Allah (SWT) punished Iblis which was his ouster because of his disobedience. Basically, the moral that this lecturer was trying to impart was that when you want to pray for material things like cars, money and their like, you should first pray for your friends, family neighbours etc...like the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) used to do and then lastly for yourself but when it comes to praying for forgiveness and immunity from sin, then you must start with yourself and then go to the others. This is the mistake Iblis made whereby he prayed for all the angels but forgot himself so he was the one who suffered! Regardless of the moral from this story, what I would like the respected members of this forum to do is, if they can, provide me references for this story IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER THE SOURCE IS SHIA OR SUNNI. :D By the way, the lecturer was Maulana Sadiq Hasan (some of the oldies may know him as Sadiq Bapu) who is a very, very famous Urdu speaker so I would, most probably, trust his words and be assured that if he says something, then he must have some sources for it. So, I am looking forward to get the source for this hadith. I am in urgent need of it so I would be very grateful if someone could provide me with a reference to this story! :D May Allah (SWT) bless us all, our families and loved ones, may He guide us all with His Perfect Guidance and may He, The Forgiver of Sins and The Oft-Forgiving, forgive all our sins for, indeed, there is neither any refuge nor any respite for the sinners except in Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì.
Salaams, I was talking to a sister and she said that human beings existed before Prophet Adam (as) and had to exist in order to marry his sons and carry on the human race, ive never heard that human beings existed before Prophet Adam (as) because ive always thought that he was the first human being on earth. Does someone have any info? Wasalaam
