Dear brother Joseph, Peace be on you,

I am aware that very much debate(s) has already taken place with respect to Fast timings.

Without doubt, it is mentioned in Quran 2:187 part:

“And eat (wakulu) and drink (wa-ish'rabu) until (ḥatta) becomes distinct (yatabayyana) to you (lakumu) the thread (l-khayṭu) white (l-abyaḍu) from (mina) the thread (l-khayṭi) black (l-aswadi) of (mina) dawn (l-fajri). Then (thumma) complete (atimmu) the fast (l-ṣiyama) till (ila) the night (al-layli).”

“the thread white from the thread black OF DAWN”...”..till THE NIGHT.”

I personally understand it when Nautical Dawn starts (when we are able to distinguish the thread white from the thread black of DAWN) until the time Astronomical Dusk ends (when NIGHT starts).

[Please correct me if my personal understanding is incorrect.]

A comment I received from one of my friends is:

“I think there is a contradiction in translation because Allah words is beyond time and space”.

And he shared an image with a description (not attested) of port city Murmansk, located extreme northwest part of Russia where Religious Scholars and experts in Islamic jurisprudence have agreed to 20 hours fasting as there is no night in summers or no day in winters.

Al Azhar Mosque in Cairo, has ruled that Muslims should not fast for more than 18 hours a day. [1]

Yet another group of scholars suggests fasting for 12 hours irrespective of the time of year, because an average day offers 12 hours of sunlight.[1]

Please share with me your kind view(s) on how a person can fast with respect to 2:187 where there is no night or day.


General Discussions / The triliteral root "Ayn Shiin Ra" (ع ش ر)
« on: January 16, 2013, 11:19:00 AM »
Peace be on you dear Joseph,

The subject root of the word "Ashara" has been translated as

2:34 "ten"
2:60 "twelve"
9:36 "twelve"
12:4 "eleven"
74:30 "nineteen"

And when looked up in the Lane's lexicon [1]:

Ayn-Shiin-Ra = to take away a tenth part, make ten by adding one to nine, be the tenth. ashrun/asharun (f.), asharatun/ashratun (m.): ten, decade, period from three to ten. After twenty there is no difference between feminine and masculine. ashara - to consort, live with, cultivate one's society, become familiar. ashirun - companion, ashiratun - kindred, ma'sharun - company, race, multitude, who live in close communion with (pl. ashair).

ashir n.m. 22:13

ashirah n.f. 9:24, 26:214, 58:22

ashr n.m. (num. f. asharah) 2:196, 2:234, 5:89, 6:160, 7:142, 11:13, 20:103, 28:27, 89:2

ishar n.f. (pl. of ushra) 81:4

ishrun n.m. num. 8:65

ma'shar n.m. 6:128, 6:130, 55:33

mi'shar n.m. num. 34:45

ashara vb. (3) impv. 4:19

In your opinion, is it appropriate to use "Ayn Shiin Ra: ten" as "eleven", "twelve", "nineteen" as translated in various translations [2]?

Dear Brother Joseph,

Peace be on you, Hope you are in good health.  There are two questions and two recommendations where I would really want your views:

Question 1:

This is with reference to

In your respected view how would you answer to the following question:

What is the purpose of a resurrection and Day of Judgement if we only 'face His law of just recompense' and 'As you sow, so shall you reap'? It sounds like the results of doing bad deeds will be your punishment and the results of your good deeds will be your rewards. You are paying/rewarded in this life based on Gods laws of just recompense. what is the purpose of an additional day of judgement?

Question 2:

Are you familiar with any on line tool whereby we can search one Arabic root word meaning in all the lexicons something like Consolidation of Lexicons?

Recommendation 1:

It is highly recommended that we develop a mobile app of the entire that supports Android, iOS, BlackBerry, HP webOS, Symbian OS, Bada from Samsung, and Windows Mobile.

Recommendation 2:

Please and if possible after careful cross analysis will you be developing a translation of the Quran covering the authorities work and presenting the best meanings possible (39:18) for ages to come, God willing.   

Important Note: We can use for task management if global volunteers are required

General Discussions / Society for spreading faith - Tablighi Jamaat
« on: November 27, 2012, 03:11:03 AM »
Dear brother Joseph, Peace be on you 


Tablighi Jamaat is a religious movement which was founded in 1926 by Muhammad Ilyas al-Kandhlawi in India.[1]

The movement primarily aims at Tablighi spiritual reformation by working at the grass roots level, reaching out to Muslims across all social and economic spectra to bring them closer to Islam.

The emergence of Tablighi Jamaat represented the intensification of individual reformation aspects of the original Deobandi movement. It was also a continuation of the broader trend of Islamic revival in India in the wake of the collapse of Muslim political power and the consolidation of the British rule.

The emergence of Tablighi Jamaat also coincided closely with the rise of various Hindu proselytizing movements which launched massive efforts in the early twentieth century to reconvert Hindus who had converted to Islam and Christianity. [2]

[2] Ballard, Roger (1994). Desh Pradesh. C. Hurst & Co. ISBN 1-85065-091-8. Retrieved 2009-08-10


The following verse is widely used not only by the Tablighi Jamaat but all others who flag to enjoin right and forbid wrong when asked why are you doing the way you are doing this in the name of God:

And let there be among you [a] people inviting to the good [and] enjoining the right, and forbidding from the wrong, and those - they (are) the successful ones.

The practices however are not even approved by senior scholars of Islamic Secondary Sources but still are done in the name of God. Please share with us the wisdom behind 3:104 and if possible or already have please share a detail article on these societies that exist not only in Muslim communities but in others too.


General Discussions / Without seeking familiar talk (Arabic: liḥadīthin)
« on: November 02, 2012, 06:59:32 AM »
Peace be on you dear brother Joseph,

Please elaborate on the subject part of the following verse:

33:53 part
“O you who believe! Enter not the Prophet's houses,- until leave is given you for a meal, (and then) not (so early as) to wait for its preparation: but when you are invited, enter; and when you have taken your meal, disperse, without seeking familiar talk (Arabic: liḥadīthin). Such (behaviour) annoys the Prophet: he is ashamed to dismiss you, but God is not ashamed (to tell you) the truth..."

Is it indicating to companions of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be on him) to avoid seeking "hadith" that are used today in context of following the prophet?

Discussions / Belongings of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be on him)
« on: October 22, 2012, 04:37:32 AM »
Peace be on you Dear Joseph,

Many people assert belongings of prophet Muhammad (Peace be on him) like Shoe, Sandals, Cloak etc and praise and thanks God with those images.

Are you aware of any research done on these things that people think belong to Prophet?

I feel those people who share such things simply put behind the Message that Prophet was inspired with (Quran) and place it behind their bewildered array of wishes.

Discussions / Islamic Secondary Sources
« on: October 20, 2012, 07:17:27 PM »
Dear Brother Joseph, Peace be on you,

I am writing this after looking at how the secondary Islamic sources are mocked by some so called Quranist who ridicule the quotes in a way that crave hatred against the authors.

Much researched has been done whether the writings that are related to authors do actually exist or it was the student’s cartel who actually published the versions that they see fit to their own understandings.

People who have passed away carry no burden on us neither would we be responsible for their actions.

My questions are:

1) Is there any website or in the making whereby a user can see contradiction from all the books mainly referred by Muslims in drawing religious matters?

2) Why is much research done only on Sunni collections? Is it that they are easily accessible?

3)  Knowingly or unknowingly there are main streams universities in the world who have subjected this religion. Why they are still not clear (clear as in black and white) that Quran is the sole religious guidance and we should omit all sayings of humans and stick to sayings of God?

4) Is it as if they (the contemporary scholars) have made small kingdoms within state where they can’t just now knowingly change things and they have to stick with Lots of Quran and some of people’s saying?

5) Why do we still see people who claim Quran to be sole religious guidance divided in basic meanings or interpretations of Quran?

Best regards

Peace be on you dear Joseph,

Please share wisdom in your respective view:

102:7 - Then you will surely see it with the eye of certainty.


P.S. much research has been done -  All our memories are reconstructed memories.

Peace be on you brother Joseph,

One friend of mine recently emphasized on the subject that such individuals exists in every country and specifically follows and admire the character of Pharaoh and indeed many documentaries have been established just to make sure they really do exists.

In your view do they really exist and are real (historical) OR/AND fictitious?

It is sad to hear from a lot of people when they relate them to Jews specifically as if a Jew would always think evil to mastermind events and control world affairs through governments and corporations and sometimes introducing new doctrines.

What are your views respectively?

General Discussions / Rijalan and Nisa'a
« on: October 06, 2012, 11:24:08 PM »
Peace be on you dear brother Joseph,

If the questions seem that they should not be pursued, so you may simply ignore the questions with respect to 3:7.

"O mankind! Fear your Lord, Who created you from a single soul and created from out of it its mate and spread from these two, many men and women; and fear God, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship; surely God ever watches over you

After reading your following articles:






1) Want to have your view regarding many men (Rijalan)  and women Nisa'a as mentioned in the 4:1?

2) Want to know whether you have shared your views on stages of Men life and death in any article if yes please share. and please confirm whether the following paragraph do OR does not represent what is mentioned in Quran

God created us (as in all of us) who will come till Day of Judgement after Adam and his wife and make a witness over ourselves (7:172) that HE is our Lord. Quran contains signs of God for people to understand and apply in their lives and the spirit are HIS commandments that we were made of and then He has given us death and from time to time and to HIS knowledge he descends souls to earth for test and give them life and death and then again HE will raise us on the Day of Judgement i.e. Two lives and two deaths.

3) Then with respect to Ayat 2:30 - 39, Do we find answers to the following from other parts of Quran? or is something more symbolic or unclear that we should not look out for (3:7)?

(i) Were there ever Jinn or any other beings such as Men itself existing on Earth who use to disorder and shed blood as witnessed by angels to question (2:30)?

(ii) How was Iblis ranked among angels to even stand with them? As Iblis was standing throughout the discussion as indicated in 2:33 "...and know what you hide?" and as Iblees was a Jinn (who was said to be pious in secondary sources and there was a battle between angles and jinns on this planet prior to human creation and Iblees was chosen for being more pious) - yet he disobeyed GOD when it was asked to bow down with angels 2:34

(iii) Was there a tree that has been where asked "...but approach not this tree or you will become transgressors.(2:35) or it is something symbolic for Rijalan and Nisa'a (4:1) OR only Adam and his spouse not to go near something like not to disobey commandments of God?

(iv) Is Shaitan and action of evil (2:36) or an entity like Iblis?

(v) Was it THIS QURAN (that we have today) Words of inspiration or commands to Adam in 2:38?

(vi) Is Guidance from God mentioned in 2:38 are the signs of God (Ayat of Quran) as mentioned in 2:39?

General Discussions / Never stand in it
« on: September 29, 2012, 06:54:46 PM »
Dear brother Joseph, Peace be on you.

This is with reference to your article:

We note that God has forbidden to stand in mosque which causes disunion. And as a matter of fact today almost all do (mainly those are in my city/country).

"And those who built a Mosque to cause harm and for unbelief and to cause disunion among the believers and an ambush to him who made war against God and His Messenger before; and they will certainly swear: We did not desire anything but good; and God bears witness that they are most surely liars. Never stand in it; certainly a Mosque founded on piety from the very first day is more deserving that you should stand in it; in it are men who love that they should be purified; and God loves those who purify themselves"

So in your view how can we pursue congregation in mosque as we hear in every Friday sermon hatred about People of the book and elected leaders and other traditional faiths established through secondary sources?

General Discussions / LOVE GOD ALONE
« on: September 06, 2012, 04:54:00 AM »
Peace be upon you Joseph,

Knowing that GOD is LOVING, MERCIFUL and all the beautiful things one can imagine, Is there any where in Quran where GOD has specifically mentioned to LOVE HIM ALONE?

Or as the traditionalists say that wherever GOD has mentioned regarding LOVE he has mentioned HIS messenger  (I am not sure whether it is mentioned for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or the entire messengers; but these traditionalists emphasize that you will go to hell if you have no love for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) exclusively among other messengers) together with HIM.

Please share your views.
