Prophets and Messengers / Did messengers get scripture or law?
« on: July 17, 2015, 02:15:22 PM »
Dear Joseph Islam.
Salamun Alaikum

In the article titles `END OF PROPHETHOOD - CONTINUATION OF MESSENGERS?’  you said -

` from a Quran's perspective, it appears that a prophet of God is charged with greater tasks and is entrusted with delivering scripture or law. Furthermore, messengers are sent to confirm a message.

That means, as I understood, messengers did not get scripture or law.

But in the following verse it seems different. Is it?
`We have already sent our messengers with clear evidence and sent down with them the scripture and the balance that the people may maintain in justice.’ (57:25 part)

Did I miss anything?

Best wishes.

General Discussions / Clean Earth
« on: July 15, 2015, 03:21:00 PM »

In 4:43 it is said that if we dont find water then
`seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and your hands.'
Earth itself a dirty thing. Is not it? Then how can we clean our face using it. Is their any other meaning of the CLEAN EARTH?

One more question:  There are many verses started with `O Who believes!' among those which are for immediate recipeints and which are for all the believers immediate and away? How can we understand that? Is there any linguistic differecnces or other measures to differentiate it.
If answers of these questions are already given in this forum, would anyone please give me the link.


General Discussions / example of dog in the verse 7:176
« on: July 13, 2015, 01:28:46 PM »

I just Failed to understand the example of dog in the verse 7:176

7:176 And if  We had willed, we could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered (instead) to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he (still) pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our signs. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought.

Since dogs cannot sweat, it's their way of cooling their body temperature. Isn't it? Also, some dogs just do it to feel the air brushing against their tongues. So what is the similarity between dog and those people who follow their own desire.
I look forward to hear your thoughts on this.

General Discussions / regarding 5:103 and 6:143, 6:144
« on: June 28, 2015, 03:15:57 PM »

Dear forum members


I shall put forward some questions here in a regular interval to make a better understanding of some verses of Holy Quran. Hope that you will help your best. If any of the questions are already answered, please give me the link.

What is the meaning of the words bahirah, saibah, wasilah, ham in the verse 5:103. Some say that these are slit-ear she camel, or a she-camel let loose for free posture, or idol sacrifices for twin births in animals, or stallion camels freed from work.
Is it ok?
5:103  Allah has not appointed (such innovations as) Bahirah or Saibah or wasilah or ham. But those who disbelieve invent falsehood about Allah, and most of them do not reason.

Also failed to understand another two verses  6:143, 6:144
6:143 (They are) eight mates of sheep, two and of the goats, two. Say, `Is it the two males forbidden or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? inform me the knowkledge, if you should be truthful.'
6:144 And of the camels, two and of the cattle, two. Say, `Is it the two males He has forbidden or the two females or that which the wombs of two females contain? Or were you witnesses when Allah charged you with this? Then who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about Allah to mislead the people by (something) other than knowledge? Indeed, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.'


General Discussions / on 2:187 and 2:184
« on: June 19, 2015, 06:32:53 PM »

while reading The Quran a few questions came in mind. Two are as follows:

It seems that the target audience of the verse 2:187 is believer man. What's about believer women, if they want to go to their male.
(2:187 part-  It has been made lawful for you during the night of fasting to approach your women. )

In the verse 2:184 it is said that `fasting is for a limited number of days.'
But we practice it for a month. Why?

If these are already discussed in this forum, would anyone kindly forward me the links.

General Discussions / Krishna
« on: February 25, 2015, 05:54:11 PM »
Dear Joseph


Recently I read your article titled


It is very useful. But in a place you said that -

`Whether we call Him Rab, Lord, God, Almighty, Krishna, Khuda, Yahweh, Elohim, Adi Purush (Timeless being); Para Brahman (The absolute Truth) , El, Eli, Eloi, Jehovah,  or whichever beautiful name we call Him, it is with respect, humility and grace that we take His name with the sole intention that He is One and Only One that we serve.'

Here you mention Krishna as a supreme power, actualy who is a deity, worshiped across many traditions of Hinduism in a variety of different perspectives. Krishna is generally recognized as an avatar of Lord Vishnu. Many muslim scholars also think that Krishna might be a Prophet of his time. Some say, he is an important historical figure. So, is it ok to include his name in the status of TIMELESS BEING? Is there any scope to respect him as One and Only One like Param Brahman (The absolute Truth) or Bhagavan who also represent the concept of abstract God to many Hindus who are religious but do not worship a specific deity.

Best Wishes.

General Discussions / mumin and muslim
« on: January 27, 2015, 03:33:45 PM »
Dear brother Joseph,

Salamun Alaikum.

I have read your article on the difference between mumin and muslim. It is pretty convincing. But after reading a verse a question arises in my mind. That is  3:102.

`O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except as muslims.' (3:102)

As i understood from your article, believer is a better position. you said, `For example, one may be a Muslim but may not yet be a 'Mu'min' (believer) as true faith has not yet entered their hearts.' This is also supported by Quran.

My question is, why Allah asks believers to `die not except as muslims.'

Take Care.

Best Wishes for your here and hereafter.

General Discussions / Quran Touching

Brother Joseph


Most of the muslims claim that those who do not have ablution (including the women who are in a state of menstruation) should not touch the Quran.

They refer to 56: 79 (None touch it except the purified.)

Do you think it is correct? Or the meaning is different?


Best Regards.

Islamic Duties / Reciting Quran in Prayer
« on: July 20, 2014, 04:02:30 PM »
Dear All


One more question I would like to ask you.

All the necessary guiding aspects of prayer are mentioned by the Quran and  there is no mention to recite surah/ayat from Quran. Then why do we recite Quran in salat in a mandatory way?


Best Wishes.

Islamic Duties / Diferent parts of Quran in one rakah
« on: July 18, 2014, 05:10:40 PM »
Dear All


From a response of Joseph Islam (to Wazir) I came to know that it would be nice to avoid uttering `Qul' before reciting suras like Ikhlas in ritual prayer. Very Logical.
My question : Is there any problem if i recite diferent parts/verses of Quran (which all are prayer) in one rakah.

Dear All


Recently read an article in about the meaning of AR RAHMAN. The writer proposed that according the usages in the Quran the meaning of AR RAHMAN should be and is THE MOST POWERFUL. Generally we read it as MOST GRACIOUS.

Here is the link

What's your opinion.

best regards.

General Discussions / preservation of scripture
« on: June 27, 2014, 06:20:08 PM »
Dear Joseph

Assalamu alaikum

One of my freinds asked that why Allah did not preserve the previous scriptures like He preserves the Quran? Were not those His favorite? Then why He allowed those to be corrupted? I answered that Allah knows the best. And perhaps time was one factor. As the civilization advanced those scriptures lost relevancy. So the final scripture arrives.
But I myself is not fully content with this answer.

Do you have any explanation regarding this issue.

Best Regards.

Dear Brother Joseph


According to Quran we must recite in prayers in a intermediate way. (17:110)

But most of our imam recite quietly in Dhuhr and Asr. Is there any problem to follow them? Shall i be responsible for that?

Best regards.

Dear Brother Joseph
