I appreciate that you sent me the link, but he did not provide any proof (verse) from the Quran. Therefore, I will not accept his argument. I provided you a crystal-clear proof from the Quran.
General Discussions / Ezra is the son of Allah (God)
« Last post by F on September 02, 2022, 10:32:10 AM »
As-salamo Alaikum,

The Jews claim that the Quran is incorrect because there is no person in the history of the Jews named Ezra. The Jews don't deny that there is a Jew named Ezra, from Yemen, who claimed to be God, but the Jews tried to kill him and not a single Jew in the whole world followed him. The Jews challenge Muslims to bring any Jew today who believes that God has a son like the Christians. The Jews admitted that all of them are children of God, but they mean with the children of God, the beloved ones of God. Therefore, I decided to explain the meaning of Ezra.

•   Verse (9:30) in Quran says that Ezra is the son of Allah (God). Ezra is written in Arabic as “Ozayer”.
•   Verses (5:12), (7:157), and (48:9) in Quran use the word “Azaro” which means “honored him”.
•   The root of “Ozayer” and “Azaro” is “Azar” which means honor. 
•   Therefore, the meaning of “Ezra is the son of Allah” is “the honored is the son of Allah”.

Allah explained the meaning of “the Jews say Ezra (honored) is the son of Allah” in verse (5:18) which says “the Jews and Christians say that we are the children of Allah”.

Exodus (34:14) says: God is jealous; and Isaiah (42:8) says: God does not share His glory with anyone. This means that God is unique and completely different from all his creatures and everything that applies to the creatures does not apply to Him. For example, a man has a son, and we call this boy is the son of George, so God does not have a son, and it is not permissible to say “son” of God. Also, a man is the father of a child, and we call George is the father of Derek, so God is not the father of anyone, and it is not permissible to call God “The Father.” The titles “son” and “father” contradict the fact that God is jealous and does not share His glory with anyone. When the Jews and Christians say that they are the children of God, then they are sharing the title “son” between human and God and since God is jealous, He does not accept this.

God told the Jews that they should not make for themselves any image of anything and bow down to them.

•   Exodus (20:4-5) “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.

But the Jews amended the Torah and claimed that God will beckon to the nations to bow down to them with their faces on the ground. Therefore, the Jews share themselves with God in “bowing down”. When God said in Quran that “the Jews say Ezra is the son of Allah”, He meant to say that “the Jews say that the (honored) Jew is the son of Allah”.

•   Isaiah (49:22-23) This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I will beckon to the nations, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their hips. 23 Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”

Therefore, Quran is not incorrect as Jews claim because the Jews believe that they "Ezra" are the children of Allah.

I don't see how its the muhmin's responsibility to purify others but certainly his/her own to keep their own self in that state. The autonomy of choice is after all, what Allah(SWT) Himself reminds Prophet Muhammad(s.a.w) and the Qur'an listener/reader about. The muhmineen can explain and share their insights on how and why Allah(SWT) has ordained pure standards of personal conduct, though more often than not, are confronted by munafiqs and/or mushrikeen who seek to subvert and undermine the sanctity of the Qur'an vis-a-vis certain abusive 'hadith/sunnah' claims and who also attempt to corrupt them(muhmineen).

Thanks Wakas for sharing Islamic calendar refuting article. I read it but not convinced as the author concluded with open question on Aam and Sanat and he himself is unsure.
I think when is equally important if not more than what aspect of Hajj ritual (or Ramadan fasting for that matter) else we may be doing right things at the wrong times  ;)

So far as I'm concerned I've not seen/come across better argument and evidences in regards to things involving numbers and calculation in the Quran than this brother's research work, which I shared earlier too:

Please let me know if my inclination towards his research work has any major flaws risking in arriving at wrong timing of Hajj and Ramadan including 27th (Laylatul Qadr) night.

Islamic Duties / Re: New Article: what is 'al hajj' according to The Quran?
« Last post by Wakas on July 22, 2022, 01:19:38 AM »
Article has been updated with a small clarification/correction:

"the hajj are months well known so whoever specifies/obligates the hajj within them..." 2:197

i.e. it is the person that determines this. Similar to what I said about when to end it, see article.

Salamun Alaikum Br. Joseph
This is my first post and I apologise if I’m posting the wrong way. Alhamdulillah it has been an eye opener and I’m grateful to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala who has guided me here, and may Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala reward you immensely for all your efforts. I have three questions and any answers from my fellow brothers and sisters would be greatly appreciated.
My first question is regarding goodly loan, it is mentioned in the Quran:
“Indeed, those men and women who give in charity and lend to Allah a good loan will have it multiplied for them, and they will have an honourable reward.” (57:18)
What kind of deeds can be seen as goodly loans?
My second question is something I’ve been thinking about, albeit rather foolish. We know that fish is halal, does this mean that it doesn’t have to be slaughtered or killed in the halal way? And if this is the case do you then not need to utter Allahs Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala name over it? I’m thinking about the verses 6:145-146, 6:119, 6:121, 5:3, 2:173. Also if the name of God don’t have to uttered over it then it still is important that it hasn’t been killed in the violent ways specified at verse 5:3, which is something one doesn’t know when eating fish in the restaurant for example. Lastly do anyone have advice on how you pray if you’re in an airplane. I will fly soon Insha’Allah and the Asr prayer will occur while we are flying. Should I pray standing up? I’m pretty sure that I can pray at the back of the plane near the galley. Have anyone been in a similar situation before?
Jazak’Allah Khair
