« on: February 19, 2015, 09:42:26 AM »
Thanks Brother Osama you created a very nice article. I Didn't understood the article but now i understand. This what i came to conclusion.

Daha has several meanings ROUND OR SPHERICAL AND EXPANSE OR SPREAD OUT and both are right because our earth is expanding and it is changing the shape. Earth shape was not the same has million years ago and it was quit difference this is the WISDOM of ALLAH ALMIGHTY that he used the word which has two different meaning. According to the statement from CNN, Earth also look like a Pumpkin and many eggs do resemble Pumpkins ( It varies in shape and sizes ) AGAIN just like eggs our earth is changing and is not different that was million years ago. We should also note that Quran does not mention a specific egg because all varies in size and shape.

Thanks if you don't mind, can i make the article short and simple so that i can add on my website? :)

2 - Earth is flat according to Noble Quran?

http://irf.net/faq/faq2_08.html

Quote
The Qur’an mentions the actual shape of the earth in the following verse:
 
“And we have made the earth egg shaped”. [Al-Qur’an 79:30]
The Arabic word Dahaha means egg shaped. It also means an expanse. Dahaha is derived from Duhiya which specifically refers to the egg of an ostrich which is geospherical in shape, exactly like the shape of the earth. Thus the Qur’an and modern established science are in perfect harmony.

Did Zakir Naik made a mistake? ^
The critics claim that Dahaha means expanse and it is not derived from the word Duhiya and even if it is derived then it means the place where Ostrich lay eggs not the egg itself. Plus Earth is geoid while egg is ovoid.

The article on answering-christianity.com also says that earth is egg shaped http://www.answering-christianity.com/egg-shaped_earth.htm

ThatMuslimGuy also posted the same thing on his site, http://quran-errors.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/does-quran-teach-that-earth-is-flat.html

Quote
Now, the very first expression in the series, dahaha, is noticeably distinctive and different in genre from the rest. Watt, following many other previous translators, renders it as "spread out". But the exact and correct meaning of the term, keeping in view its root, rather provides a very positive Qur'anic evidence in support of the spherical shape of the earth. For daha means to "shape like an egg", its noun being dahiyah, which the Arabs still use to mean an egg. [13]

Q Also what does it mean that earth is spread out or expanse?
Q Critics also claim that a believer always reinterupt their scriptures to fit the modern science because the word contains two meanings like Daha.


Waiting for answers.

I made this topic so here we can discuss the things which critics bring so called "Scientific errors in Quran". It's hard to find any rebuttal or an article in this site (answering-christianity.com) which refutes the claim made by critics that Quran contain Scientific errors. From time to time when everything will be cleared. I will post things on my website.

CRITICS QUOTE = RED QUOTE

# Problem 1 / Does Sun revolves around Earth ?


Critics claim that, Sun revolves around the earth and there is no verse which claims that earth revolves around the sun, They bring the verse

Quote
"It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. THEY FLOAT EACH IN AN ORBIT."  Qur'an 36:40

"And He it is Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. They float, each in an orbit." Qur'an 21:33

Faique Mushtaq you're so naive. Read the Quran.
It says earth is flat.
Sky is like a dome (tent).
Sky can fall down on people.
Seven Heavens.
Sky can be rolled up.
and many other absurdities.

How should i refute this? Please help, also please read the passage below by Islamic Research Foundation ( Dr Zakir Naik ) which can be found here http://sunnahonline.com/library/the-majestic-quran/430-quran-and-modern-science-compatible-or-incompatible-the

Quote
For a long time European philosophers and scientists believed that the earth stood still in the center of the universe and every other body including the sun moved around it. In the West, this geocentric concept of the universe was prevalent right from the time of Ptolemy in the second century BC. In 1512, Nicholas Copernicus put forward his Heliocentric Theory of Planetary Motion, which asserted that the sun is motionless at the centre of the solar system with the planets revolving around it.

In 1609, the German scientist Yohannus Keppler published the 'Astronomia Nova'. In this he concluded that not only do the planets move in elliptical orbits around the sun, they also rotate upon their axes at irregular speeds. With this knowledge it became possible for European scientists to explain correctly many of the mechanisms of the solar system including the sequence of night and day.

After these discoveries, it was thought that the Sun was stationary and did not rotate about its axis like the Earth. I remember having studied this fallacy from Geography books during my school days. Consider the following Qur'anic verse: "It is He Who created The Night and the Day, And the sun and the moon: All (the celestial bodies) Swim along, each in its Rounded course." [Al-Qur'an 21:33]

The Arabic word used in the above verse is yasbahun . The word yasbahun is derived from the word sabaha. It carries with it the idea of motion that comes from any moving body. If you use the word for a man on the ground, it would not mean that he is rolling but would mean he is walking or running. If you use the word for a man in water it would not mean that he is floating but would mean that he is swimming.

Similarly, if you use the word yasbah for a celestial body such as the sun it would not mean that it is only flying through space but would mean that it is also rotating as it goes through space. Most of the school textbooks have incorporated the fact that the sun rotates about its axis. The rotation of the sun about its own axis can be proved with the help of an equipment that projects the image of the sun on the table top so that one can examine the image of the sun without being blinded. It is noticed that the sun has spots which complete a circular motion once every 25 days i.e. the sun takes approximately 25 days to rotate around its axis.

In fact, the sun travels through space at roughly 150 miles per second, and takes about 200 million years to complete one revolution around the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.

"It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law)." [Al-Qur'an 36:40]

This verse mentions an essential fact discovered by modern astronomy, i.e. the existence of the individual orbits of the Sun and the Moon, and their journey through space with their own motion. The 'fixed place' towards, which the sun travels, carrying with it the solar system, has been located exactly by modern astronomy. It has been given a name, the Solar Apex. The solar system is indeed moving in space towards a point situated in the constellation of Hercules (alpha Layer) whose exact location is firmly established.

The moon rotates around its axis in the same duration that it takes to revolve around the earth. It takes approximately 29½ days to complete one rotation. One cannot help but be amazed at the scientific accuracy of the Qur'anic verses. Should we not ponder over the question: "What was the source of knowledge contained in the Qur'an?"

I can't understand the paragraph above by Islamic Research foundation so can i send this paragraph to critic? is this reliable? Does it refute ?


Waiting for answer,
Brother Uzair Ahmed.

original post on my website http://calltotruth.weebly.com/misconceptions/islam-and-freedom-of-speech and give your opinions in this thread. Also if you found any mistake or you would like to add me something in the article then please feel free to post here and tell me. ;)

Quote
From the point of view of Islam, Allah (God) Almighty created humans as free beings. This idea of human freedom certainly includes freedom of choice and freedom of speech. At the same time, Islam holds humans as responsible beings as well. Every thinking person can see that responsibility is just the other side of freedom. This responsibility before God is meant for all practical purposes to be our responsibility towards the society, or to our fellow beings, as it were.

Indeed, Islam visualizes the realization of a model society in space and time, for the creation of which, each individual needs to sacrifice a portion of their freedom. It has always been a problem in human history, as to how to balance between individual freedom and social control. In all the socio-political systems of the past, as well as of modern times, we see how the state, "a self-governing political entity" imposes restrictions on the freedom of the individuals through the exercise of power (Rosenberg). The apparent objective of such restrictions is the general welfare of the citizens of the state. Rousseau has written about a certain loss of freedom to natural man, consequent upon the gradual emergence of society through history. For him, natural freedom is in fact slavery to individual passions. To set aside individual freedom and accept the general will is to accept a higher moral order.

In other words, the freedom of natural man is a sort of lawless freedom. In order to make the freedom of each compatible with the freedom of all, there should be societal control, through serving our interest in justice.
When there is a conflict of different interests, some can prevail only at the expense of others. In the present context, the conflict is between the individual's interest in unbridled freedom for himself and the society's interest in safeguarding the general freedom of the society as a whole. This indicates the necessity of a proper balance between individual freedom and social control for the welfare of all.

In short, the rights of each individual are limited by the rights of others. These rights do not merely include freedom of speech, but equally the basic right to dignity, privacy and respect, and the basic right not to be subjected to degrading or inhuman treatment. The foregoing means that the idea of absolute freedom of speech, often hypocritically touted by the Islam-bashers, is absurd and untenable. We have a number of examples from the so-called "civilized world" itself to prove the point.

Take the question of anti-Semitism for  example. Any person who ventures to question the claims of the "Holocaust Industry" is subject to prosecution in the western countries, where, it is claimed, freedom of speech is allowed to all its citizens.

Prof. Norman G. Finkelstein of City University of New York wrote:

Indeed, the Holocaust has proven to be an indispensable ideological weapon. Through its deployment, one of the world's most formidable military powers, with  horrendous human rights record, has cast itself as a "victim" state, and the most successful ethnic group in the United States has likewise acquired victim status. Considerable benefits accrue to this specious victimhood — in particular — immunity to criticism, however justified (3).

So where is the freedom of speech now? Which Bigoted and racist Islamophobia claim when they attack Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) ?

Freedom of speech does not mean the freedom to defame or malign a prophet. If it were not so, why did the Dutch newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, that published the notorious "Prophet cartoons" in September 2005, refuse to run drawings lampooning Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), submitted by Christoffer Zieler in April, 2003? (Gwaldys)

Charlie Hebdo claim that its "Freedom of Speech" when they malign Prophet but when it comes to anti-Semitism, it is not? The hypocrisy of Charlie Hebdo when it comes to free speech must also be pointed out. It fired one of its cartoonists for the offense of anti-Semitism because it mocked a former French president’s son who converted to Judaism, as NBC reporter Ayman Mohyeldin wrote,

Hebdo fired one of its cartoonists and accused him of anti-semitism because he mocked the son of a former living French President who converted to Judiasm. Why is mocking a living person anti-Semitic hate speech but mocking sacred religious figures not? Who decides what is anti-Semitic and who decides what is Islamophobic?

So where was the freedom of Speech? Which bigoted Islamophobia claim during the Charlie Hebdo attack on 2015? Why there is so Double standards?  Also why France banned Pro-Palestinian rallies during the massacre in Gaza? We clearly see these double standards on Freedom of Speech by racist and bigoted Islamophobia. Does "Freedom of Speech" only applies to Muslims like the word "Terrorist" ? 

Pope Francis on Charlie Hebdo said that Freedom of Expressions has some limits and you can't insult the faith of others - (  as Reported by Huffington Post

In simple language if someone someone abuses Judaism he is not allowed to do so and is charged for Anti-Semitism. But if someone abuses Islam then it's "Freedom of Speech" ? This is a clear injustice.

Jazak Allahu khairan

Some good articles akh. Is it ok if I link them on my weebly?

Yes Brother you are allowed.

Brother,

I Noticed you are using "Weebly". I would suggest you something,You should create a blog and write an article on it, Instead of making standard pages. In weebly you are only allowed to create 10 Maximum pages. In this way you won't be able to create more article. So make a blog by going to Pages > Add pages > Create a Blog page. Once it is created, then you can click "New Post" and make an article. After you have done it you can click 'Post' and your article is posted. In this way you can create an unlimited number of Articles ( Posts ). Create an additional page ( Standard page ) and name it as "List of articles" ( or any name as you like it) . In this way it will become easier to browse the articles.

You can check my site as an example.

Please clarify me this horrific hadith

Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4348

Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas:
A blind man had a slave-mother who used to abuse the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and disparage him. He forbade her but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and abuse him. So he took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) was informed about it.He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up. He sat before the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: Apostle of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her. Thereupon the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood.

Grade :- Sahih (Al-Albani)

72
Brother is Ibn Sa'd Authentic?

73
Maybe those Hadiths are weak in narration? Have you checked its grading & Background? Dr.Zakir Naik says that after the Quran if there is any authentic source then that is Sahih Bukhari.

74
MuslimGuy, clarify this issue please


When Safiya came to the Holy Prophet (pbuh), he said to her; ‘Among the Jews your father did not stop in his enmity towards me until Allah destroyed him.’ She said: ‘O Allah’s Messenger! Indeed Allah says in His book, ‘No one will take anyone else’s burden’. So the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said to her: ‘Make your choice, if you will chose Islam I’ll select you for myself and if you chose Judaism, I’ll set you free and send you to your people.’ She said; ‘O Allah’s Messenger indeed I longed for Islam and testified for you even before you gave me this invitation when I came to you. I have no guardian among the Jews, neither father nor brother and I prefer Islam over disbelief. Allah and His Messenger are dear to me then freedom and to return to my people.” (Ibn Saad 8/123)


Now the critics are saying that Quran was not written in Book form at that time but Saffiyah uses the word "Book" so it means that Ibn/Saad is not authentic and they are telling me to read Ibn/Ishaq.. How to respond this nonsense?

Migration

THE HIJRAH TO MADINAH BEGINS:

Once the Messenger(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) of Allah had taken this pledge, the Muslims had more security and some from Makkah took refuge with the Ansar. The Messenger(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) of Allah ordered his Companions and those Muslims who were with him in Makkah to leave for Madinah, and to join their brothers among the Ansar. He said, 'Allah has given you brothers and an abode where you will be safe.' They soon began to leave Makkah.

The Messenger(  ) of Allah, however, remained in Makkah waiting for Allah's permission to emigrate to Madinah.

The emigration of the Muslims from Makkah was not easy. The Quraysh put many obstacles in their way and subjected the emigrants to considerable stress. However, the emigrants were determined to go. They did not want to remain in Makkah. Some, including Abu Salamah, were forced to leave their wives and children behind and to travel alone. Some had to relinquish all they had earned in their lifetime. Suhayb was among those who lost all their wealth.

Umar ibn al-Khattab, Talhah, Hamzah, Zayd ibn Harithah, Abdur-Rahman ibn Awf, Zubayr ibn al-Awwam, Abu Hudhayfah, Uthman ibn Affan and others emigrated (may Allah be pleased with them) and the emigration continued apace. None were left in Makkah with the Messenger(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) of Allah except for those who were imprisoned or awaiting trial, apart from Ali ibn Abi Talib and Abu Bakr ibn Abi Quhafah.


THE QURAYSH'S FINAL PLOT FAILS:

When the Quraysh saw that the Messenger(  ) of Allah had Companions and helpers in Madinah over whom they had no power, they were alarmed about his departure. They knew that if that happened, they would have no means to stop him. So they assembled in the Dar an-Nadwah, the house of Qusayy ibn Kilab which the Quraysh used when decision-making, The Quraysh nobles consulted one another on what to do about the Messenger(  ) of Allah.

They finally agreed that each tribe would provide a young warrior and together they would attack the Messenger(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) of Allah, each man striking a blow. That way responsibility for his death would be divided among the tribes and the Banu Abd Manaf would not be able to fight them all.

Allah informed His Messenger(  ) of this plot, so he could tell Ali ibn Abi Talib to sleep in his bed wrapped up in his cloak, adding, 'Nothing unpleasant will happen to you.

When the murderous gang gathered at the door intending to attack, the Messenger(  ) of Allah came out and took up a handful of dust. Allah then instantly removed their sight and the Messenger(  ) of Allah scattered the dust over their heads while reciting verses from Surah Ya Sin, 'We have covered them so that they do not see,' (36: 9) Someone came to them and said, 'What are you waiting here for'

'Muhammad,' they replied.

'May Allah disappoint you!' he said. 'By Allah, he came out earlier and went about his business.'
When they looked and saw someone sleeping on the bed they did not doubt that it was the Messenger(  ) of Allah. But in the morning when Ali got up from the bed, they were so embarrassed that they slunk away quietly.



THE HIJRAH OF THE MESSENGER (  ) OF ALLAH:

The Messenger(  of Allah went to Abu Bakr to tell him, 'Allah has given me permission to emigrate.'

Abu Bakr exclaimed, 'In company, Messenger (  ) of Allah?

'In company,' replied the Messenger(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) of Allah, and Abu Bakr wept for joy.

Abu Bakr brought two camels which he had in readiness for the journey and hired Abdullah ibn Urayqit to act as their guide. Over the years, the Messenger (  ) of Allah had developed such a reputation for honesty that the unbelieving Quraysh would deposit their valuables with him, certain that they would be safe. This day he charged Ali with the responsibility for returning all the property to its rightful owners.


THE CAVE OF THAWR:

The Messenger ( ) of Allah and Abu Bakr left Makkah secretly. Abu Bakr asked his son, Abdullah ibn Abi Bakr, to find out what people were saying about them in Makkah and he asked 'Air ibn Fuhayrah, his freed slave, to graze his milking sheep in the daytime but to bring them to the each night. Asma' bint Abi Bakr would bring them food.

They went to the Cave of Thawr. Abu Bakr went in first to clean it up and to make sure that it was safe so that nothing could harm the Messenger (  ) of Allah. Once he was satisfied he called him in.

When they were inside Allah sent a spider to spin a web from a bush across the entrance to the cave. It concealed the fact that the Messenger (  ) of Allah and Abu Bakr had only just gone in. Allah also commanded two wild doves to fly down between the spider and the tree. They made a nest there and laid eggs. 'To Allah belong the armies of the heavens and the earth.' (48: 4)

The idol-worshippers followed the tracks of the Messenger (  ) of Allah's party, but when they reached the mountain they became confused. They climbed up the hillside passing close to the cave. However, when they saw the spider's web they said, 'If anyone had entered here, there would not be a spider's web across the opening. Then, they rode on. Abu Bakr saw the idol-worshippers coming. In alarm he said, 'Messenger of Allah, if one of them steps forward, he will see us.'

The Messenger ( ) of Allah replied, 'Why worry about two when Allah is the third!'


On the other day the Prophet Muhammad(saw) left for Madinah with AbuBakr
