Title: Some Arguments presented by Christian Prince refuted
Post by: AMuslimDude213 on June 07, 2018, 05:43:35 PM
Argument 1:
“Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),

Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood).

Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous”

[al-‘Alaq 96:1-3].

In arabic the Word of "clot" is Alaq'

Now what does Alaq mean? it also used in these 2 verses

O People, if you should be in doubt about the Resurrection, then [consider that] indeed, We created you from dust, then from a Nutfah, then from a Alaqah... [Quran 22:5]

{ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً}
Then We made the Nutfah into a Alaqah... [Quran 23:14]
The Qur’an describes one of the stage of the developing human embryo with the word alaqah. This word carries various meanings including: to hang, to be suspended, to be dangled, to stick, to cling, to cleave and to adhere. It can also mean to catch, to get caught, to be affixed or subjoined.[20] Other connotations of the word alaqah include a leech-like substance[21], having the resemblance of a worm; or being of a ‘creeping’ disposition inclined to the sucking of blood. Finally, its meaning includes clay that clings to the hand, blood in a general sense and thick, clotted blood - because of its clinging together.[22] This view (that alaqah means clotted blood - because of its clinging together) is supported by Ibn Kathir, as he explains the word to mean a “dangling clot”.[23]

Below is a correlation of the following meanings of the word alaqah and modern embryology:

1.      Hanging/suspended
2.      Suckling blood
3.      Leech/worm like substance
4.      Blood-clot

Embryologists Barry Mitchell and Ram Sharma explain the ‘hanging’ or ‘suspended’ aspects of the alaqah stage. They describe the embryo as being:

connected to the cytotrophoblast by a connecting stalk of extra-embryonic mesoderm (primitive connective tissue). The stalk is the forerunner of the umbilical cord.[24]

Interestingly John Allan and Beverley Kramer use the word “suspend” to describe the role of the connecting stalk

2.)The hadith of Jabir ibn Abdullah R.A

There is a hadith concerning the Prophet SAW telling Jabir R.A to marry young girls

Christian prince quotes the whole hadith except a part of the hadith

He said, “O Messenger of Allah! My father died  a martyr at Uhud, leaving behind daughters, so I did not wish to marry a young girl like them, but rather an older one who could take care of them and look after them.” The Prophet salla Allahu ʿalayhi wa salam replied, “You have made the correct choice.”

3.)Christian Prince and the word 'Salah'
This is the stupidest argument by far

The argument that Al Salawat or Sallalahu Alayh means Prayer or prayers be upon you. This made me cringe so hard, CP Is deceiving people by saying he knows arabic and thats only modern arabic,not classical or formal arabic, Sali ala=/=Salah/salat.

You see
Salah/Sali or Yusallee means To bless,

to bless


Now to the arabs who might scream out now, "SALI MEANS PRAYER TOO"
Well you see,it depends on the context of the word

To say Sali Ala Muhammad SAW basically means Prayers on Muhammad SAW? What does that mean? There is no context or any logical meaning to it, we dont Pray on a statue of Muhammad SAW which doesnt exist,We dont pray on Muhammad SAW.

So the context would fit when we say Sali Ala Muhammad SAW Means Blessings on Muhammad SAW, since this provides context,meaning,etc to it and makes more sense and also fits in as compared to Sali meaning prayers.

But now when it comes to how to use Prayer,whenever you say you pray to something,someone or a deity you Say ILA,which means To
And in arabic a logical example would be
Sali Ila Allah, Blessings to Allah, wont make sense, since you dont invoke blessings to Allah, Allah needs no blessings he is the creator of Blessings, so in this case, the context of "Sali=Prayer" Would fit

In which case it'd make the Context into prayers to Allah.
