GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / About Death
« on: April 11, 2014, 08:26:21 AM »
Salamun Alaykum

Yesterday my grandmother died. Can you guys give some information about what happens while someone is dying and while the people waiting beside the deceased person, do they already be gone to Allah ? Or they can see us until people in a hurry bury the deceased one and leave. And what happens while the deceased person is in the tomb ? Some information would be greatly appreciated.

Oh and before you brothers and sister try to console me and state your R.I.Ps. I'm really not that sad. We never shared a close relationship with our grandparents (my father's parents) neither me and my sister nor my mom and dad. But death is a sad thing indeed. Seeing the deceased under white burial robe. I also looked at her face one last time, her eyes were a little open and she was looking straithg.

Well R.I.P and my Allah have mercy on her. Ameen.

Salamun Alaykum

Does reading Quran in Arabic compulsory ? It is maintained in Turkey that Quran should be read in Arabic. But there is a problem. Though reading Quran in Arabic is tought at Mosques in Turkey, understanding what you read howewer is not. So while people recite Quran in Arabic they do not know what are they reading. I know there are translations to Turkish in every page but if you ask people what do they know about Quran, you will come to conclusion that they don't know even a single piece of rice of knowledge. People are not bothered to read the translations and i can confirm it, my mother and another religious friend of mine do not have a clue about what does the Quran talking about. The Hodjas insinst on reading it in Arabic. But maybe that is because the some traitors in Turkey try to cut Muslim populations ties from Islam so that maybe why the Hodjas insist on Arabic. But the case is still not solved, and there is no way to make population read in Turkish. People will come you with arguments that the Quran demans to be read in Arabic. But what is the purpose of reading if you dont learn anything from it ? I once heard or read somewhere that in Quran it is said by Allah that "We send you this Quran so you can understand and learn what is written in it. It is not a book to be only read at a graveside to the dead and be put away." Something like that. So Allah wants us to learn whats written in it. Not just recited in vain.

By the way dont get me wrong. Im not some fanatic nationalist. People have every right to read whatever language they wish to read. But they skip translations. That is the problem.

Another question i have in mind is why birds are forbidden to be kept as pets, especially Budgerigars ? The cute, litte, colorful birds that can mimic human speech ? Taking care of them is easy, cheap and clean. They do not make messes as much as other pets do. The hodjas in Turkey just say that it is not good to have birds as pets but does not elaborate further. I know a story that have a good chance of being an ─░slamic one. It is that some people put a bird in a golden cage. But the bird began to cry "i want my motherland." so the people got curious and released it wondering where would its motherland could be. Then the bird fly and conquered the skies.

You guys have some answers ?

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / A Few Questions
« on: July 12, 2013, 10:39:42 AM »
Hi brothers and sisters!!

Long time no see. Insallah you are all alright and happy. I got a few questions i would like to ask;

1. I heard from a tv program about European Muslims that a friend of a Dutch Woman said her that listening to music was a sin.Is this true ? If true ? Then why ?

2. Muslims living in Turkey maintain the idea that we should call Allah just Allah, not God. Allah is his proper name. I mean no one is calling you with a common noun like human. Can you explain this ?

3. Some revolutionists refer to Allah as God (Tanrı in Turkish) saying that it is Allah's species(Like our species is Human). With regards to not refer to Allah as God, i prefer to name his species as The Creator. Can you make some explanations here ?

4. I read from a Turkish Islamic forum that drawing pictures other than scientific and engineering purposes is a sin. I'm a amatour comic book writer. Which involves drawing pictures. I asked my father's brother(he is a scholar in Islam) that is drawing pictures is a sin ? He replied that if you worship the picture you draw than it is a sin. If you do not worship it and doing it for scientific, engineering and entertaintment purposes than it is not a sin. Some explanations here.

That is all that come to my mind right now. I'll ask more later. :D

Thank you all for answers and maintaining a good Islamic Forum. Love you all.

i heard from my history teacher that Allah's name was known amongst the pagan arabs before islams  arrival and he was worshipped as the creator of all things supreme deity. i searched from wikipedia and the west is maintaining that idea too.

Brother Osama can you enlighten us about that issue?

Hi brothers and sisters

its been awhile since i last visit this wensite, i was studying hard for a long time to get my grades higher.
Anyways, in Turkey, there is an on going(going for 90 years i think) debate about which side should rule the country and the current goverment is using islam as a cover to exploit the citizens faith to secure its rule.

Naturally the opposing side is fighting back to take the goverment back but in doing so they are attacking islam.
Last year was my first semester in university and in our rhetorics lessons me and another of my friend had a little argument about our prophet Hz.Muhammed. i had to remain silent after awhile because of my fear that if a may say something wrong about our prophet.

Finally, last day, my History teacher attacked openly to islam saying that the muslim countries is weak and not as advanced as the west is because of islam.There were a lot of attacks to islam lately but last day put me in a doubt about Allah's existance and im still not able to get my head together despite overwhelming proof about Allah's existance. i fear that im becoming(or become) a hypcorite, that my mouth says Allah exist but my hearth says he doesnt existh. There is a saying of famous thinkerer mevlana that he who has strong faith in Allah undergoes the hardest test. Help me brothers about how should i pass this test.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / About Magic
« on: February 02, 2013, 12:01:59 PM »
Hi brothers and sisters , its me again :)

I've written in an earlier hello topic that i'm working on a comic book project and writing it with regards to islam.
I wanted to correct a mistake which Turkey's Television Channels made with magic.They represented it like something good , you know making things fly , teleport yourself or taking forms of things.They have poisoned young childrens mind.

So i need your help , i have been researching extensively about the topic but as i said , we don't have much eleborate sources in our native language.I've been reseraching some Satanisim website and found out very interesting things.

I know that humanity is not permitted to practise magic and i'm not Satanist :D I'm muslim :)

One thing i've found out from translated version of Solomon's Temple Documentary is that , Allah put charge two Angels at Babylon to teach magic who seek to oppose Allah's will.

I'm bad at making myself understood in both English and Turkish , i'm sorry. :(

So Can you guys make a eleborate topic about Magic ?

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Hi Guys and Thanks
« on: February 01, 2013, 10:14:03 AM »
Hi my brothers and sisters , thanks for this great site.I'm from Turkey and we don't have that much elaborate information in our native language on the net so i wanted to say thanks.I'm studying English Language and Literature and working on a comic book project.I'm writing it with Islam taken into consideration because that is something different in the world of comics and though Turkey's population is %99 Muslim , finding art with Islam taken into consideration On TVs , Cinemas and Books is a rare thing.
I Chose a female protagonist because i wanted to express the idea of Muslim Women must not wear revealing clothes and produced(I dont like to use word "created" because i'm not capable of creating something in any way) a female mentor to guide her in the corrupted world we live in.

I Chose Deccal to be antagonist because Deccal is an adversary you cannot win against with mere  physical strength and been searching extensively in any source i can on him.

Enough of me :) , I wanted to ask something to you , are you guys Muslims living in a Muslim Country or Muslims Living in a Christian Community or Muslims that converted to Islam ?

Sorry If I'm Too Curious , i didn't wanted to hurt your feelings.
