Jihad & Terrorism / Re: Suicide bombers.
« on: November 05, 2016, 01:46:13 PM »
As salamu 'alaikum


...the first suicide bomber was in the Bible?  Read the story of Samson...

Well technically he wasn't a bomber, he should be more appropriately called a "temple-smasher" or something like that.

But then again, according to the Bible he did commit suicide...

As slamu 'alaikum,

This is a true believe it or not situation here: http://www.answering-christianity.com/cgi-bin/quran/quran_search1.cgi?search_text=88%3A17&munir_munshey=1&yusuf_ali=1&arberry=1&mohsin_khan=1&palmer=1&shakir=1&sale=1&sher_ali=1&pickthall=1&khalifa=1&rodwell=1&transliteration=1&arabic=1&all=1&B1=Search

Scroll down to Rodwell's translation. See the difference?!!

While at first glance this seems to utterly devastate the claim of the Qur'an being error-free, I think I have refuted this issue using these links to word-for-word translations of this verse:

http://corpus.quran.com/wordbyword.jsp?chapter=88&verse=17

http://understandquran.com/fileadmin/user_upload/vocabulary/translation/english/30-840-846.pdf

http://www.recitequran.com/88:1

http://www.emuslim.com/wordforword/Juz__030_840to846.pdf

https://quran.com/88 (hover over the arabic verse 17 for its word-for-word translation)

Does anyone have any other, preferably stronger way of refuting this?

Facts about Rodwell on his Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Medows_Rodwell) somehow makes me think he was biased.

Also in http://islamawakened.com/quran/88/17/default.htm only 8 ot of 53 tranlations have the word "cloud" instead of "camel".

As salamu 'alaikum bro Osama,

                                                                              STEP 1

Almost full prohibition, with very minor allowances in certain very well-defined cases, for music: https://islamqa.info/en/5000
                         
                                                                              STEP 2

The very minor allowances, in certain very well-defined cases, also discussed and explained here: https://islamqa.info/en/20406

Answers to a lot of other questions regarding music and singing in the "Condemnation of Singing and Musical Instruments" section: https://islamqa.info/en/cat/365

Their arguments are pretty solid.

Ahteism & Agnosticism / Re: Atheism? BOORRINGGG!!
« on: November 02, 2016, 09:45:55 AM »

148 Million people have been killed by atheism from 1919-2007

As salamu 'alaikum bro,

That's some really interesting statistics, but could u prove it using reliable sources?

Such interpretation is reinforced by discovering an inscription which was engraved in one of the corners of the foundation of the Kaaba during its renovation in 605 A.D. by the people of Quraysh. The mysterious writing was composed in Syriac as relates Ibn Ishaq, and they could not understand it until some Jew read it for them. The text goes as follows: “I am Allah, the Lord of Bakka, I created it on the day that I created heaven and earth and formed the sun and moon, and I surrounded it with seven pious angels. It will stand while its two mountains stand, a blessing to its people with milk and water.” [Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, trans. A. Guillaume, (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2004), pp. 85-86.]

Ibn Ishaq immediately after citing this amazing inscription have said: “I was told that they found in the maqam a writing: ‘Mecca is God’s holy house…”


As salamu 'alaikum

Subhan Allah!!! I did not know dat. All praises be to Allah, and thank u also bro Idris - this info really made my day!

Btw, Is there any reliable and authentic hadith of Muhammad (peace be upon him) regarding any bit of this?

Is there still a chance of survival of the writings on one of the corners of the Kaa'ba's foundation and in the maqam surviving to this day?!! What if, by the incomprehensibly infinite power and wisdom of Allah Almighty, these writings were somehow not eroded and / or otherwise damaged? What if the erosion and / or damage was somehow minimal enough to allow these writings to still be deciphered with significant linguistic accuracy? What if the writings on one of the corners of the Kaa'ba's foundation are covered by the "kiswa" (black cloth), and nobody notices - not even during replacing the "kiswa" annually - bcuz most likely don't know syriac and / or other semitic language (except arabic) alphabets and / or can't recognise the particular script of these writings? Jews and christians aren't allowed entry to Makkah, so they wouldn't be able to translate and or even read these writings, even if they were somehow and somewhat decipherable.

Shouldn't we launch a full scale archaeological investigation of every nook and cranny of the Kaa'bah and maqam, even if only to look for clues which could possibly indicate whether or not these writings were present at some point in history?

Ma sha' Allah, bro Idris u really seem to know things - and your knowledge seems to be extremely valuable and extremely appreciated on this blog - so in connection to your above research could u please spare some time to look at this: Qur'anic etymologies and etymological connections (http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,2369.0.html). It's about the arabic etymology and arabic meaning of the name "Ibraaheem".

As salamu 'alaikum bro zulfiqarchucknorriss, r u a native arabic speaker? where / who did u get the translation from? I'm just asking cuz I'm Bengali and have quite meagre knowledge of Arabic. So if u don't mind, could u plz see this: Qur'anic etymologies and etymological connections (http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,2369.0.html)

@Egyptian
As salamu 'alaikum,
All praises be to Allah, that was damn well said bro!!!

As salamu 'alaikum,

Based on Qur'anic exegeses, works of arabic and other semitic languages' linguists, and your personal opinions / theories (backed by linguistic and historical proofs) what is the arabic etymology and arabic meaning of "Ibraaheem"? Plz keep aside the majority scholarly and anti-Islamic (and quite possibly correct) opinion that it's just  a transliteration of Hebrew אַבְרָהָם (pronunciation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:He-Avraham.ogg) or more likely aramaic (and also syriac I think - correct me if I'm wrong) ܐܒܪܗܡ (pronunciation something like "owrraahim"* - correct me if I'm wrong).

This should refute "...Biblical names are also misunderstood in the Qur’an, and their meanings lost... Abraham ‘Father of many’ (cf Genesis 17:5) might have been better represented as something like Aburahim ‘father of mercy’ instead of Ibrahim, which has no meaning in Arabic at all." - Mark Durie, 'Isa, the Muslim Jesus (http://www.answering-islam.org/authors/durie/islamic_jesus.html), AnsweringIslam.

Quite interestingly, the site StudyQuran in their Project Root List (http://www.studyquran.co.uk/PRLonline.htm) gives "Abraham" as one of the meanings of the root "alif-ba-ra" but also lists "a needle, a thing pointed" - can needles or pointed things possibly relate to the name "Ibraaheem" in any way?

More interestingly, the Project Root List gives "go away, depart, withdraw, to give up or leave/cease/quit, angry, annoy/distress/difficulty/adversity, hurt/fatigue" as meanings of the root "ba-ra-ha" - and immediatedly I can connect these to the Qur'anic accounts of Ibraaheem (peace be upon him) going away from his people's idol worship; was angry with this; annoyed them in their worship; faced distress for this by being threatened with stoning, killing or burning and was finally thrown into a fire; and fatigued the faulty reasoning of his people's support of their idol worship, and of the one he argued with mentioned in Qur'an 2:258.

On a side note is the name "Abraha" (as in Abraha al Ashram) related to "Abraham" or "Ibraaheem"?

*This pronunciation is as given in "Jesus uses the word Muslim in Luke 6:40" on this site. Can u give a better link, preferably for an audio or video?

As salamu 'alaikum all muslims,

Isa Aleyhisalam was not born in the winter, he was born in the summer/spring, which I can prove using the bible/or the Qur'an...

Not intending to pose a challenge bro adnaanshaikh195, but I find this extremely amazing - can u really prove it using the Qur'an?

Wa 'alaikum assalam bro Osama,

Extremely sorry if I'm being offensive, and forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think u're trying to praise her musical and singing talents. Isn't music and singing forbidden in Islam, with very minor exceptions in certain cases?

Soooooo..... I dunno....... maybe u should repent or something?

Again, plz forgive me if I sounded too offensive.




11
And bro Osama could u plz, plz, plz reply more frequently to my post(s). When u didn't reply 2 my 1st post in 2015, it kinda... umm... really broke my heart... to tell u da truth, I'm such a big fan of yours!!!
When I stumbled upon your awesome site back in early 2015, (1st article I read was "Jesus' (peace be upon him) true name is 'Eesa) I was like "whoa this Osama guy's the next level Zakir Naik!!!" And from dat day u've earned my total love and respect dear bro; I earnestly hope Allah Almighty continues to strengthen your belief in da Divine Truth of Islam and ur skills (especially research quality 'n quantity) in waging incessant intellectual JIHAD against the infidels.
To quote u "the infidels have nothing on Islam"- too damn right u r bro!!!

Anyways if u don't mind could u plz give links 4 da resources, which I'm in dire need of, I mentioned in my original post?

All da best wishes bro!!!

As salamu 'alaikum my most beloved and respected fellow muslims.
I'm back after a really long hiatus, as I was busy with my A Level studies and various exams. My 1st, and for along time the only, post was "ISLAM ALLOWS AMULETS CONTAINING QUR'ANIC VERSES, SURAHS AND/OR SPECIFIC DUAS?"
Well now I'm researching on ya'jooj and ma'jooj, and I'd extremely appreciate it if you guys could provide me with all original arabic ahadeeth (both reliable & unreliable, strong & weak) mentioning them, word-for-word translations of these ahadeeth, and also commentaries on them and their explanations by the companions of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and also by other well-known, knowledgeable and trusted scholars, both medieval and contemporary.
In particular I'd like to know whether they're humans, and their physical appearance (I've read on some sites that according to narration(s) they're descendants of Japheth, son of Nuh (peace be upon him). And I most eagerly welcome your personal opinions, preferably backed by scientific and religious sources, in this regard.
Thanks a lot for all your hard work, or at least for reading this!

As salamu 'alaikum dear brothers and sisters in Islam! I'm a Muslim and a complete newbie to this blog, and I REALLY URGENTLY need your answer to this question: ISLAM ALLOWS AMULETS CONTAINING QUR'ANIC VERSES, SURAHS AND/OR SPECIAL DUAS??? Could you please give me COMPLETE DETAILS about which madhabs or sects of Islam allow it, on what occasions it is allowed and also hadiths about its allowance? I'm currently using an amulet given to me by a khateeb of a mosque (I don't know if he himself or some other, possibly more pious person e.g. a "pir" or auliya made it) and it's a very small closed metallic cylinder with an even smaller ring through which a string is passed and tied to my arm. The khateeb told me that the amulet contains paper on which is written "Allah's kalaam". I told him that the website "islamqa.info" says that some of the sahaabah completely forbade us to use amulets, while others allowed using them provided that they contain only clearly written Qur'anic verses, sahih ahadith and/or names and attributes of Allah and nothing else. The site also quoted many ahadith and the site's shaykhs came to the conclusion that is impermissible. I also told him that in the book "Qur'aner Aalo" (a Bengali book; the title translates to English as "The Light Of The Qur'an"), 3rd edition, by Mohammad Amjad Hossain Chowdhury (published by Darul Hikmah Bangladesh) on pg. 52 it's written that Muhammad (peace be upon him) forbade us to believe in the beneficial properties of "taabeej" (Bengali for amulet). I also told him that I have read quite a number of sahih hadiths saying that Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself during ailments used to recite particular surahs and blow on his palms and rub his palms over his face and reachable body parts' and also used to recite Surah Al Fatiha and blow on water before drinking, and also used to prescribe these 2 actions to his followers, I have not read a single hadith- sahih or not- saying that he used amulets or prescribed them to his followers. He said that it's "jayez" (I think it means allowed) to use amulets containing Qur'anic verses, surahs and/or special duas, but it's forbidden to use other types of amulets e.g. seashells and also amulets containing paper on which praises, invocations etc. to pre-Islamic Arabs' gods and/or goddesses are written (which he said was practised by pre-Islamic Arabs).
P.S.: I live in Bangladesh and here (and also in many other parts of the Subcontinent) amulets are very popular not only among Muslims but also among Hindus.
