General Discussions / Re: Cracked moon and the Quran
« on: April 05, 2013, 01:25:45 PM »
Peace be with you dear brother Ahmad ,
Cracks on the moon surface and moon cracked into two parts are very different things.
The article in the link you provided discuss about effect of bombardment of heavenly bodies on moon surface and does not tells that moon was cracked into two halves.

It is clear from Quran that prophet Muhammad never did any miracle.please read this article for more information.'s%20miracles%20FM3.htm

I hope this will be helpful , God willing.

Peace be with you Ahmad ,
In my humble opinion , any mental or physical illness can be a punishment from God or test or both. Allah knows best.

(2:155-157) We shall certainly test you with fear and hunger, and loss of property, lives, and crops. But  give good news to those who are steadfast,  those who say, when afflicted with a  calamity, ‘We belong to God and to Him  we shall return.’ These will be given blessings and mercy from their Lord, and it is they who are rightly guided.

There is a genetic predisposition to depression. Adversity and emotional deprivation also predispose to depression.

There is evidence that both drug and psychological treatment works in depression.

General Discussions / 113:4 , what does BLOWING ON KNOTS mean ?
« on: April 04, 2013, 06:57:28 AM »
Peace be with you ,
Dear forum members , i want to know what 'blowing on knots' mean.
Some translators has taken it as witchcraft/magic/secret arts others have translated it as 'the one who complicate the simple by tying knots.

For me blowing on knots sounds like a superstitious act. It is a common practice in many south Asian muslims to read verses of Quran and blow on someone's face , water , food , etc with good intention.

What could blowing on knots possibly mean in the light of Quran ?

General Discussions / Study Loan
« on: March 27, 2013, 07:48:17 PM »
Salamunalaikum  :) ,

Some state governments in India  provide Study Loan to students who can not afford College fee for their higher education at a LOW INTEREST RATES that too is paid by the candidate himself after completing studies and getting a job.
My room mate's friend asked about it in a Local mosque and the clergy's reply was much like '' loan @ low interest rates is a Planned scheme of the government so that Muslims get indulged in activities related to Riba (This was his personal Opinion)''

Quran does not prohibits 'paying' interest if compelled due to the circumstances.

My Question is
Will a Country whose constitution is based on Quran alone allow such Low interest schemes ?
Is it allowed for a Muslim to use such schemes ?

Thank you in advance for your replies.

Salamunalaikum ,
 Thank you Joseph Islam sir for replying and your reply helped me to understand it more deeply.

I asked the same Question to my friend on facebook and i would like to mention her reply here.

''I would refer back to 3:100 until we reach 3:110. We must hold firmly to Allah (3:101), have a proper fear of Allah (3:102), hold firmly to the rope of Allah (The Book) and do not become divided (3:103), there should be a nation/community from us inviting to that which is good and making plain what is wrong (3:104), Again DO NOT become divided (3:105), reminding of The Day (3:106-107), reminding this is the truth (3:108), reminding the Sovereignity if Allah (3:109) and now with all this you are and have the knowledge of, you Indeed are the best people to enjoin what is right and make clear what is wrong (3:110 my interpr).''


According to chapter 3 verse 110 , are we the best Ummah ?
Better than Ummah of  prophets other than prophet muhammad ?

I had a discussion with my friends , they are orthodox muslims and came with this Ayah to prove that we the Ummah of prophet muhammad are superior than other Ummah which came before prophet muhammad.

Thanks for the reply.

Dear Truth Seeker ,
I can not understand how these two conditions can co-exist at a same time

"Allah made him with a purpose and
 satan made his choices of his own

I am also in a need of verses which hints towads presence of Allah in the past , present and future. Please quote any one.

Thanks for replying

Salamun alaikum ,

Questions asked by a fellow believer :-

1)Fellow believer -
Do we have a free will whenever we choose to select a Good  or evil path or its because Allah has already decided it for us ?

Considering a series of events in a single matter , We have a free will , but after certain free wills ( In any situation ) , we have to face Consequences of our previous acts  in which we have no options.

2) Fellow believer-
Were the Satan having free will when he choose not to respect Adam ?

May be he was Granted free-will at that time or It was part of Consequences of his previous misdeeds to Not to do Sujood in front of Adam. Allah knows best

3)Fellow believer-
Suppose He had free will ( not consequences of previous bad deeds )at that moment , Were Allah Aware that he will choose only Evil path before the event Actually occurred ?
If yes , Why Allah made him ?


In Brief -

If you are not able to Understand the question clearly , please tell me , I will re-frame the Question in a different way.

Salamun alaikum ,
@Orange , I am NOT associated with any sect or religious organisation in any way.

'I must strive for reformation of myself
and the world'

You are right , this is tag-line/slogan/motto Of Jamat ahl e sunnah pakistan (their television channel named 'Madani channel' is broadcasted in india too) . I consider them as the most transgressed sub-sect among muslims and do not like anything in them except their slogan.

And thanks for the beautiful article.

Salamun alaikum Orange ,
I would like to share my experience with Tableegh Jamaat
As far as i know , Tableegh Jamaat is a big organization in India and  it is spread up to the ground level everywhere ,  their main aim is to teach Muslims (especially Muslim youths) about Islam .
But their main book is not Quran , it is Fazail-e-amaal. (although they will say Quran is main book of Islam , but i have never seen them advising someone to read Quran's translation) , and whenever  i meet them they ask '' are you all doing zhikr of Fazail-e-amaal in your rooms ?''

Three times i have been to 'Jamaat'(Living inside the mosque for 1 to2 days) . I have never seen them teaching Quran during my experience. All they do is that after every Salah they start teaching Fazail-e-alam (which contains many selected Hadiths from Bukhari , muslim , etc and other stories)
I have questioned a person (not their scholar) from  their mosque and his reply was '' We do not have enough mental strength to understand exact meaning and interpretation  of the Quran''.

The activities of members of TJ is within Muslims , they do not preach the message of Islam to non-Muslims.
Fazail-e-amaal is  criticized by Ahl-e-hadith (Saudi type) sect too because of its contents (stories not present in Sahih or Daeef hadiths) (please watch this video if you can understand Urdu)

Peace on you.

Salamun alaikum Joseph islam and others ,

"I will mislead them, and I will create in them false desires; I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and to deface the (fair) nature created by God........"

I have read your article about circumcision but have some doubts.

Can we use verse 4:119 while explaining that circumcision is not a part of islam ?
We know that now a days  better products are been produced by Genetic engineering , the 'natural' DNA content of micro organisms are 'altered' to get the desired product for the benefit of humanity.
Some examples are : human insulin (from modified bacteria) used by diabetics , improved drugs , plants/crops which gives more yield and are more resistant , etc
Old examples are production of mule from horse and donkey , castraction of ox , etc

From Quran , is Genetic engineering allowed ?

Discussions / preparing dead body for burial.
« on: November 20, 2012, 08:23:50 PM »
Medical colleges and universities needs  original human bodies for for Anatomy Dissection classes , In my first year in medical college when i was a fresher , i used to regret because the Cadavers(Dead bodies preserved in formalin) are mainly people suffering from extreme poverty , homelessness  or they may be  unclaimed bodies  and they didn't got proper ceremonial burial after their death. but at the same time it was in my mind that Dissecting dead human bodies is very necessary for medical education (especially surgical branches)

Today i realized the importance of Quranic silence on this matter.

Discussions / How can i translate articles on your website ?
« on: October 30, 2012, 08:19:24 PM »
Dear Joseph Islam and all , Salamun alaikum

Majority of Muslims are living in places where English is not a mother-tongue (like Pakistan , Indonesia , Saudi , etc). Moreover , the people who need such articles most cannot understand English.
On the other hand , most of the Books written on traditional belief are easily available in Local language.

Some of my friends ask me questions like '' How Salah can be done without Hadith ?'' , etc. and i can not recommend your articles because of language problem.
So , Is there any way to translate your articles   [I have used the online translators but it simply translate word to word and flow (and sometime meaning ) of Language is distorted]

Walaikum salaam ,
Eid al adha mubarak  ,
In Quran , the term Eid is mentioned only once in 5:114. Eid remains a traditional festival and celebrating it is not commanded in the Quran.
