There was this hokey film in the 70s called "in search of noah's ark". Hokey because the whole thing was filmed inside a studio with special effects. There was also an astronaut that "climbed" Mt. Ararat in a same-said search, but it was really because that it is a border marker and the Soviets had espionage stations --radar, intercept, and so forth-- on their side and near the top.

The biblical version was edited in the 2nd and 3rd centuries BCC, and no matter what the "original" had it was transmitted as "in the mountains of Ararat" but where Ararat was is not specified. What is now proclaimed as Ararat is also not "east of Shinar"[between the two rivers" Tigres-Euphrates], in which case Noah-a.s. would have had to have landed in the Zargos. The last time the Armenian Arafat volcanoe erupted was in 1840.

These and other historical and environmental factors and events still leaves another possibility why the boat didn't survive. Noah-a.s. used it to build a new home.

:grin:

Yeah, far as I recall it was in the mountains of Ararat. No idea what would have been edited in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. It's not like anybody had a secret treasure map. 

If some archaeologist studies everything and decides on a location but finds nothing, he must admit he missed, then alter his study to find a new location. Chances are his findings will lead him farther away. 

I totally understand the impact that finding Noah's ark would have on people, I already witnessed it.  Unfortunately, these fake findings leave the entire story as credible as the image of the virgin Mary on a half eaten ham sandwich.

Of course, I remember. I never forget anything. Plus, such an immoral man as yourself is hard to forget.

l am watching BBC's "100 Days" interview with correspondent Alex Forsyth about BREXIT and the problems the May Gov't is having dealing with descent within her gov't.

ln the interview, the background chosen for Ms. Forsyth's questioning is a picture of the blackened Grenfell Tower surrounded by scaffolding.

l just like the English style of commentary.

My new next door neighbors built a wall.  :dry:

As if I wasn't already annoyed enough by their presence.  (Totally not their fault before the wall though.)

@Sumerian

Since my thread was locked brother, i wanted to clarify that i did not say our Aimmah never cured anyone. Even our Prophet (saw) cured Ali (as). What i was saying was in our books of Ahadith, we rarely find - compared to the alternative - the companions asking the Imams for sustenance, or cure. The vast majority of the time they are in fear, are sick, or in debt, we find the Aimmah referring them to Allah,by virtue of a beautiful supplication. Please don't reply to this, but i needed to publicly post this as a one-off to clarify this, because i am fasting and do not want to lie upon the Ahlulbayt. Please leave this as an isolated clarification and not an invitation for further discussion. Barakallahu Feek. Other users are requested not to reply. 

My Allah accept all our Amals tonight, by Right of Muhammed and his purified progeny (asws).

Bro @786:)

If you speak Urdu, can you - if you have time - understand what he is saying? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBgQl7Qkx3I  You might be very sympathetic to his views. I can't pick up what he's saying, though i'm in the process of learning.

I love this guy. He gets tagged a wahhabi by most since he doesn’t say the 3rd testimony in adhan and iqama.

They should go after Shaykh as-Saduq, Shaykh Tusi, Allama Hilli, if they even read our classical works, let alone know who these scholars are.

Except the classical scholars disagreed amongst themselves on the adhaan. What Al-Saduq (ra) considered to be a fabrication, other classical scholars considered that to be a mustahab action.

The opinion of Allama Al-Hilli (ra) those who say the third testimony is that they are in err, but his opinion was that they didn't commit a sin. He didn't call it a bid'ah.

This is why l stay with sahih hadith and Quran. This does save on confusion.

It is the victory of fantasy over realism that distances the American public from the horrors of war.

I enjoyed reading her reflection on the Hollywood's version of war vs the reality of life, and how people can be convinced by mere myths even if they were logically implausible.

Hmm, if im going to fly during the month of Ramadan and my flight is before the Dhuhr azaan.

Then I need to fast that day until I have traveled far enough to be counted as a traveler and THEN I can break my fast.

Is this correct?

Someone told me, if I am going to travel then I dont need to fast that day, so I can eat before the flight, but that does not sound right to me.

After working for 12 years, apparently I have suddenly become a bad employee. People keep firing me. Employers have developed such high standards for entry level jobs while they pay most of their money to managers , CEOs and what do those managers actually do? They work from home, go on vacations for several weeks, and assign all their work to entry level employees. There are a lot of stupid entry level  employees who do their managers' work. But not all entry level employees are capable of doing everything: that's why they are NOT hired in the managerial positions. I hate it when during the interview people tell me:  this is like family, welcome to the family. That usually means their environment is like a joint family system and adjusting in that environment will be just like adjusting with your in-laws. Don't these people have families at home? Why do they insist on turning work places into joint family systems and treating new employees like a son-in-law or daughter-in-law?

On the day that you plan to travel you still need to fast, and when you reach the distance of becoming a traveler, then you break your fast, because the Holy Prophet SA said it was disobedience to do otherwise. What if you ate that day and something happened which made your traveling impossible?

Quote

When the Prophet (s) traveled during Ramadan, he broke his fasting and declared to the people that he had broken his fasting. He considered fasting in travel as disobedience. He said: “It is not of piety to fast in travel.”

No, you break your fast after 22km past your cities border.
