General Discussions / Fragments of the world's oldest Koran
« on: August 31, 2015, 06:31:30 PM »
Fragments of the world's oldest Koran, found in Birmingham last month, may predate the Prophet Muhammad and could even rewrite the early history of Islam, according to scholars.

The pages, thought to be between 1,448 and 1,371 years old, were discovered bound within the pages of another Koran from the late seventh century at the library of the University of Birmingham.
Written in ink in an early form of Arabic script on parchment made from animal skin, the pages contain parts of the Suras, or chapters, 18 to 20, which may have been written by someone who actually knew the Prophet Muhammad - founder of the Islamic faith

Keith Small, from the University of Oxford's Bodleian Library, added: 'This gives more ground to what have been peripheral views of the Koran's genesis, like that Muhammad and his early followers used a text that was already in existence and shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than Muhammad receiving a revelation from heaven.

As-salaamu 'alaikum!

Stooping is a social gesture, part of Asian culture and mostly done by the Japanese. Is it allowed to that in Islam?

General Discussions / What's the different between 'ibn' and 'walad'?
« on: August 16, 2015, 07:21:59 PM »
As-salaamu 'alaikum br. Joseph & friends!

What's the difference between ibn and walad?

The Jews said: "Ezra is the son of God," and the Nazarenes said: "The Messiah is the son of God." Such is their utterances with their mouths, they imitate the sayings of those who rejected before them. God will fight them. They are deluded from the truth!

وقالت اليهود عزير ابن الله وقالت النصارى المسيح ابن الله ذلك قولهم بأفواههم يضاهئون قول الذين كفروا من قبل قاتلهم الله أنى يؤفكون

And to warn those who say, “God has begotten a son.”

وَيُنذِرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا اتَّخَذَ اللَّـهُ وَلَدًا

Assertion by a Christian:

 I have shown many times these verses refer to heretical groups, not mainstream Christianity. No Christian believes God had sex with Mary. ‘Ibn' (ابْنِ) is the broader term which often can have a figurative, non-biological meaning, as in "sons of the road" (ibn-alssabeeli, ابْنِ السَّبِيلِ, Qur'ān 2:215). This is the correct Arabic translation of the concept "Son" used of Jesus in the Bible (‘υἱός'), related to the Hebrew word "bin, בּן."

‘Walad' (وَلَد) denotes a son born of sexual relations, rather like the English term "offspring." This term is utterly inappropriate as a description of Jesus' relationship to God (God forbid!).

Now let us look at the verses in the Qur'ān which deal with this topic:

"And they say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten offspring (وَلَد, walad)." Glory to Him! they are (but) servants raised to honour." (Sura Anbiya 21:26)
"Had Allah wished to take to Himself a son (وَلَد, walad), He could have chosen whom He pleased out of those whom He doth create: but Glory be to Him! (He is above such things.) He is Allah, the One, the Irresistible." (Sura Zumar 39:4)

"And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son (وَلَد, walad)." (Sura Jinn 72:3)

"To Him is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth: How can He have a son (وَلَد, walad) when He hath no consort? He created all things, and He hath full knowledge of all things." (An'am 6:101, 2:116, 10:68, 17:11, 18:4, 19:35,88,91-92; 23:91; 25:2,)

Wa as-salaam!

General Discussions / What's the meaning of the arabic term 'lamasa'?
« on: August 12, 2015, 06:42:03 AM »
As-salaamu 'alaikum!

In several translations of the Qur'an, the word 'lamasa' in 4:43 and 5:6 is translated as 'touch'. Hadith-centric Muslims will assert that 'lamasa' means to touch women, that is, shaking hands. Thus, if someone shake hands with a woman, then he has to do ablution. So what's the defintion of the word 'lamasa'?

Best wishes, Ijaz A.

As-salaamu 'alaikum brother!

Can you cite the verse?

As-salaamu 'alaikum!

The people are being punished becase they have forsaken the Qur'an and believe in laws that bring injustice such as 'death to renegades', 'stoning to death' &c. - Barbaric laws.

I'd suggest that you study the surrounding verses and you will comprehend why Musa (pbuh) said so, however, some scholars believe it to be an allegory. Read the context and you might understand why he said that  :)

As-salaamu 'alaikum!

Protecting the private parts entails to have proper apparel that doesn't reveal your private parts and in addition protect yourself from unlawful sexual intercourse.

I hope this response is pleasant to you.

Even Chritians utter God's name while slaughtering which is why Muslims are permitted to eat their
slaughtered permitted animals.

It depends, what if they utter 'in the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit?
