Salam Mehedi
Apologize for the typo, the reference of the said ayat is 21:24.

The point is that the use of particle 'bal' does not reverse the idea expressed in the first part of the ayat. In the examples cited, for the idea expressed in the first part of the sentence, the reason/conclusion of the same was given in the 2nd part of the sentence after the use of particle 'bal'.

For example, in 2:100 أَوَكُلَّمَا عَاهَدُوا عَهْدًا نَّبَذَهُ فَرِيقٌ مِّنْهُم ۚ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
The use of particle 'bal' does not negate the fact expressed before 'bal'  that 'whenever they made a covenant, a party of them threw it aside'. The statement after 'bal' is giving a conclusion for the first part of the statement.

Similarly, for below ayahs:
7:80-81 وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ أَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُم بِهَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِّنَ الْعَالَمِينَ  إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاءِ ۚ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ مُّسْرِفُونَ
And Lut when he said to his people. "Do you commit lewdness such as no one in all worlds surpassed you in it."
"Verily you approach men with lusts instead of women, you are indeed a people of transgression."

The first part of the sentence in 7:81, is correct that the nation of Lut lusted after men instead of women, and 2nd part gives a conclusion that they were nation of transgressors.

If an individual is born with a different sexual orientation, then this is not his doing. He can be considered as a handicap of being able to lead a normal hetro-sexual life (the word handicap is not used as an insult, just to cite the example). His case could be considered as other handicaps who because of their particular disability cannot perform orders of God, such as salat/zakat/hajj etc.

Other than people genuinely born with this disability, for people to acquire this taste, is a transgression. Couple of observations regarding this topic:

1- likeliness of sexually transmitted diseases is more in homosexual communities than heterosexual communities
2- Extreme segregation in a society, or self imposed celibacy i.e abstinence of men from women, encourage the tendency.

I see a possible explanation of this ayat as below:

There is no escape for a person who loses hope in the world except his recourse to Allah. He cannot escape anywhere. Even death and suicide doesn't help as he has to go back to Allah in any case. Therefore, one cannot lose hope with Allah, cannot seek any other means than Him, and should always revert back to Him.

If any think that Allah will not help him in this world and the Hereafter, let him stretch out a means to the sky and cut (himself) off, then let him see whether his plan will remove that which enrages (him).

Please see some of many examples from Quran for usage of 'Bal' where the concept introduced in the first part of the sentence is rather complemented:

2:100   أَوَكُلَّمَا عَاهَدُوا عَهْدًا نَّبَذَهُ فَرِيقٌ مِّنْهُم ۚ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ
4:155    فَبِمَا نَقْضِهِم مِّيثَاقَهُمْ وَكُفْرِهِم بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ وَقَتْلِهِمُ الْأَنبِيَاءَ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ وَقَوْلِهِمْ قُلُوبُنَا غُلْفٌ ۚ بَلْ طَبَعَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهَا بِكُفْرِهِمْ فَلَا يُؤْمِنُونَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا
5:18      وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ نَحْنُ أَبْنَاءُ اللَّهِ وَأَحِبَّاؤُهُ ۚ قُلْ فَلِمَ يُعَذِّبُكُم بِذُنُوبِكُم ۖ بَلْ أَنتُم بَشَرٌ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقَ ۚ يَغْفِرُ لِمَن يَشَاءُ وَيُعَذِّبُ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَلِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا ۖ وَإِلَيْهِ الْمَصِيرُ
13:33  أَفَمَنْ هُوَ قَائِمٌ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ نَفْسٍ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ ۗ وَجَعَلُوا لِلَّهِ شُرَكَاءَ قُلْ سَمُّوهُمْ ۚ أَمْ تُنَبِّئُونَهُ بِمَا لَا يَعْلَمُ فِي الْأَرْضِ أَم بِظَاهِرٍ مِّنَ الْقَوْلِ ۗ بَلْ زُيِّنَ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مَكْرُهُمْ وَصُدُّوا عَنِ السَّبِيلِ ۗ وَمَن يُضْلِلِ اللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ هَادٍ
24:21   أَمِ اتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِهِ آلِهَةً ۖ قُلْ هَاتُوا بُرْهَانَكُمْ ۖ هَٰذَا ذِكْرُ مَن مَّعِيَ وَذِكْرُ مَن قَبْلِي ۗ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ الْحَقَّ ۖ فَهُم مُّعْرِضُونَ

The link to above post researches the topic about the revealed books.

Salam Brother,

Salat means prayer. As-Salat is 'the prayer' which is enjoined in Quran on believers to establish. The below links analyze verses in Quran about As-Salat.

Thanks Brother Oycid for detailed analysis.
A related question is, will it conflict with any Ayat of Quran if we theorize that Al-Kitab, Taurat, Injeel, Zaboor, Quran, Furqan, Zikr, Ilm, Noor, Hikma, Suhuf, Ahasan Al Hadeeth, Ahsan al Qasas, Tablet, Writings etc, are not different items but aspects or attributes of one Revelation from Allah given to all Prophets. In Book form, it is Al-Kitab (i.e written) which is between one's hands and the Rooh/understanding of it verifies with the Book being revealed on one's Nafs.

In my opinion, if we are at home or mosque then should offer full prayers. If we miss the prayers, then there is no Qaza salat, as salat is ordained on prescribed times. Salat is beneficial for us, if we make it to improve communication with God, i.e make it a means to read Quran or learn and repeat in Salat, those Ayats, with understanding which we want to implement in life or do corrections of some bad habits. Otherwise just repeating some rote Ayat/suras without understanding can be cumbersome as it is said in Quran that salat is burdensome on hypocrites.
If we are not at home, e.g in office or in such company who are not comfortable with Salat, then make a shortened one , sitting or standing or in the car (but not while driving please). In shortened salat 2 salats can be combined such as Hajis do during pilgrimage. However, if we miss salat we don't have to offer Qaza.

Prophets and Messengers / Prophet Suleiman (A.S) and Queen of Saba
« on: September 04, 2018, 10:45:23 PM »

Al-Kitab gives an interesting account of communication between Prophet Sulieman A.S and Queen of Saba in Sura Namal, twenty seventh Sura/chapter of Al-Kitab.The link to the above post reviews the invitation of Prophet's Suleiman A.S/Solomon to Queen of Saba and reading between the lines in that story.


I believe the the concept of 'Sabbath' has been distorted a lot by earlier groups, from the original 'Al-Sabt' which means 'Rest' in Al-Kitab.

The below link explores the Ayas related to Al-Sabt in Quran.


There are religious grand Mufti’s who issue Fatwa for various issues and write Books of Sharia/Masail. They give the impression that by following the Fatwa or their Masail/Sharia book,  the responsibility will be on the Mufti absolving the followers of the responsibility of making that decision. The below Ayat covers that issue:

29: 12-13  وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّبِعُوا سَبِيلَنَا وَلْنَحْمِلْ خَطَايَاكُمْ وَمَا هُم بِحَامِلِينَ مِنْ خَطَايَاهُم مِّن شَيْءٍ ۖ إِنَّهُمْ لَكَاذِبُونَ وَلَيَحْمِلُنَّ أَثْقَالَهُمْ وَأَثْقَالًا مَّعَ أَثْقَالِهِمْ ۖ وَلَيُسْأَلُنَّ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَمَّا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُونَ

“And the people who did Kufr/covered said to the people who believed. “Follow our path, and we will certainly bear the burden of your faults.” and they shall not be bearing the burden of their faults. Certainly they are liars! They will bear their own burdens, and (other) burdens along with their own, and on the Day of Judgments they will be called to account for their falsehoods.”

I believe the translation should be like below:

Be not disheartened (you believers), and invite towards peace (ISLAM), you are of the higher rank and Allah is with you, and He will never put you in loss for your (good) deeds.

Good points. I agree.
