This is a question usually asked by atheists:

Allah is an intelligent being who loves men. Then why does he care if people worships him or not?? Why he would punish people for not worshiping him? And if a man does shirk, why Allah cares?? Our worships doesn't increase or decrease the glory of Allah. then why he cares about Haqqullah. Isn't being a virtuous man good enough for entering paradise?? Why fast? why offer Salat? why Allah wants us to do these??

Even Noble human doesn't care if other people slander him or doesn't give him proper thanks for what he does for them, why Allah cares then??

Difference Between Judaism and Islam
 All About Islam
Could you explain the difference between Islam and Judaism as you did about Christianity? The way you outlined the differences was very clear. It appears to me that Islam tries to be more like Judaism.
Islam, like Christianity, accepts the Jewish Bible and is based largely upon Jewish ideas and traditions. The philosophical underpinnings of Islam, however, are more closely aligned with those of Judaism. Whereas Christianity incorporates the idea of the “trinity,” Islam believes in one all-powerful, infinite God.
Indeed. Our basic view is same. But we don’t think your Torah is still authentic. That’s the reason we follow the Almighty’s final testament: Al-Quran
Mohammed, the founder of Islam, based many of his beliefs on the practices of local Jewish population in his native Mecca. For example, the Moslem practices of not eating pig, circumcision, daily prayer and fasting during the first month of the year were all culled directly from Judaism.

Actually Judaism adapted these from Islam :P. Here let me clear it by an analogy. There are many androids. Never mind, I will give the example of windows :P However, there are many versions of Windows, all are pretty much on the same basic but of different versions. Does that mean Windows 8 copied windows xp?? Now in 2015, if you still use windows 98, will that be wise?? So be updated, be a muslim.

Since Islam was so similar to Judaism, Mohammed assumed the Jews would immediately accept this new religion. When the Jews did not live up to his expectations, he turned violently against them and many Jews died by the sword. (We are still suffering from this today; may there be peace soon.)

Actually Jews first turned against him violating the treaty. Before I go into details, for your information you’re not suffering from that and there are already enough peace in your Israel. But our dear Palestine is burning. Our kids and our brothers and our sisters are dying. Open your eyes dude.
However, let’s start with the Prophet[/b]’s relation with Jews.
" As already related the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), when he first settled at Medina, had patched up treaties with the Jews and guaranteed peace and full freedom of life, property and conscience. But when the Quraish wrote to them a threatening and inciting letter, they turned treacherous. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) tried to get the treaty renewed. The Banu Nadir refused and they were banished. The Banu Quraiza concluded a fresh treaty and they were granted peace. These facts have been narrated briefly in Sahih Muslim in the following words: " As reported by 'Abdullah Ibn 'Umar, the Jews of the Banu Nadir and the Quraiza fought with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) banished the Banu Nadir but allowed the Banu Quraiza to stay on and showed them favours.
  When the Banu Nadir had been banished, their leading chiefs, Huyayy Ibn Akhtab, Abu Rafi and Sallam Ibn Abi Al-Huquaiq had migrated to Khaibar and got recognised as leading chiefs. The battle of the Trenches was but the results of their machinations. They travelled far and near agitating the tribes till the whole country rose up in arms and attacked Medina in alliance with the Quraish. The Jews of the Banu Quraiza had a mind to stick to the treaty, but Huyayy Ibn Akhtab won them over with his guiles, promising to re-establish himself at Medina in case the Quraish abandoned the attack; and this promise he fulfilled.
 The Banu Quraiza openly took sides in the battle of the Trenches; and when repulsed, brought the greatest enemy of Islam, Huyayy Ibn Akhtab with them. Now there was no way out for the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) but to settle accoutns with them once for all."
(Source: Sirat Un Nabi by Allama Shibli Nu'Mani rendered into English by M. Tayyib Bakhsh Budayuni, p.119-120, Volume. II, Kazi Publications Lahore)
" The Muslims had hardly finished the preparations when the formidable army of the confederates consisting of 24,000 trained warriors, one of the largest forces ever assembled in the history of Arabia, knocked at the gates of Medina with determination to crush Islam. The whole of Arabia was thirsting for Muslim blood. It was critical juncture that a huge number of hypocrites seceded from the Holy Prophet on one pretext or the other. Banu Qurayzah who had been his ally, also deserted to the hostile camp since Huyayy b. Akhtab the head of the  Banu Nadir had promised them all kinds of concessions and rewards.
  Muhammad (peace be upon him) deuputed Sa'd b. Mu'adh and Sa'd b. 'Ubadah to negotiate with them and persuade them to honour their agreements with the Prophet. All the attempts of these devoted sons of Islam were futile. It was an hour of distress for the Muslims. The Holy Qur'an has referred to this state of affairs in the following words:
 When they came upon you from above you and from below you and when eyes turned aside and hearts reached the gullets and of Allah ye were imagining various things. There were the believers proven and shaken with a mighty shaking. And when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts is disease saying: Allah and His apostle have promised us naught but delusion.' And when a party of them said : O inhabitants of Yathribm there is no place for you, so return.' And a party of them asked leave of the Prophet saying : Veryily our houses lie open; whereas they lay not open; they only wished to flee. (xxxiii:10-13)"
(Source: The Life of Muhammad PBUH by Abdul Hameed Siddiqui, p.208 Islamic Publications LTD.)

Narrated Ibn `Umar: Bani An-Nadir and Bani Quraiza fought (against the Prophet violating their peace treaty), so the Prophet exiled Bani An-Nadir and allowed Bani Quraiza to remain at their places (in Medina) taking nothing from them till they fought against the Prophet again. He then killed their men and distributed their women, children and property among the Muslims, but some of them came to the Prophet and he granted them safety, and they embraced Islam. He exiled all the Jews from Medina. They were the Jews of Bani Qainuqa’, the tribe of `Abdullah bin Salam and the Jews of Bani Haritha and all the other Jews of Medina. – (Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Hadith 362)

And he didn’t do that at first as I showed above. To call a spade a spade, prophet didn’t do it at all. Saad Ibn Muadh was selected as Judge from the muslim by the jews themselves who was a friend of Jews. He asked everyone including prophet to promise that they would follow whatever judgement he gives. He judged it and Prophet peace be upon him just agreed to it. And besides Muslims didn’t break the treaty and according to the treaty, jews were supposed to be judged by jewish law.

Here is the jewish law:

Deuteronomy, 20-12-14(from bible gateway)

12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the LORD your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies.

The real difference between the two religions, however, lies in their basis for belief. Judaism is based on the unique historical event of a divine revelation experienced by the entire nation. Whereas Islam is based on the prophetic claims of a single individual who subsequently convinced others to follow his ways.

Actually we accept that Torah is word of God(But not your Torah; its corrupted). Torah was revealed in thousand years ago. Can you provide an evidence that it wasn’t changed???

And besides Prophet showed many miracles and the biggest miracle was and still is Quran. And do you forget how Moses’s people forgot what he taught when Moses was getting revelation?? At least our iman is better(even if we accept your claim that this event wasn’t witnessed by then muslims).

Talmudic tradition says that while Abraham’s son Isaac became the forefather of the Jewish people, the Islamic line is descended from Abraham’s other son Ishmael.
Maimonides states that the popularity of Christianity and Islam are part of God’s plan to spread the ideals of Torah throughout the world. This moves society closer to a perfected state of morality and toward a greater understanding of God. All of this is in preparation for the Messianic age.

Well Judaism comes from Islam, Moses was Muslim, Adam was, Ibrahim was, all prophets were muslim. Judaism is just a version of Islam.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Was Jesus really equal to God?

John 5:

16 So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began to persecute him. 17 In his defense Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.” 18 For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. 21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. 22 Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, 23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.

24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. 25 Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.

The verses:

Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness

4 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 where for forty days he was tempted[a] by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.

3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’

5 The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6 And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7 If you worship me, it will all be yours.”

8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’[c]”

9 The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. 10 For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you carefully;
11 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’[d]”

12 Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[e]”

13 When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.

GOD WAS BEING TEMPTED BY SATAN???? :O Its impossible. So we conclude jesus isn't God even in the eyes of bible.

5 The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world.

Thats scientifically impossible.

6 And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7 If you worship me, it will all be yours.”

8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’[c]”

Satan is telling God to worship him????????  And if Jesus was God, doesn't that mean he already has all those things??

33 In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, 34 “Go away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”

35 “Be quiet!” Jesus said sternly. “Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him.

36 All the people were amazed and said to each other, “What words these are! With authority and power he gives orders to impure spirits and they come out!” 37 And the news about him spread throughout the surrounding area.

the Holy One of God!”!!! And the Demon is telling him to go away??

Is Islam really against Art and Culture??

1. Classical and other good music, 2. Painting(including painting of living things. 3. Sculpture... are these really prohibited?? Why??

Allah said in Quran surah Maidah, verse 4:

Translation : Eng-Yusuf Ali

They ask thee what is lawful to them (as food): say: Lawful unto you are (all) things good and pure:

Those art form are good things basically. And it doesn't necessarily diver one from path of Allah.

Is it true that Prophet SM took the whole property of fadak because no sahabas fought to achieve that?? Is it just for the ruler to get the whole property that was earned without a fight, for himself?? Or should it be donated in the Path of Allah??

What does the noble verse speaking about everything was created in pairs mean??

Matter and antimatter?? But Antimatter are much less than matter in amount. How can it be considered as pair??

And it is We Who have constructed the heaven with might, and verily, it is We Who are steadily expanding it." (Qur'an, 51:47)

The problem is, universe is expanding faster and faster day by day, not STEADILY.

How would you explain this??

« on: March 31, 2015, 09:07:01 AM »
a much discussed and in depth thing. Where is Allah Almighty?? Is he omnipresent and everywhere in the space time? or is he himself the space time as a hadith says he is time?? or is he in his throne??

Bible says motherhood is a curse of God and women has to give birth to children in pain.

Ok, 1. God is JUST and his punishment is EQUAL for all for doing SAME INHERITED SIN.

2. So the Curse applies for all women.

BUT! There are women who can't give birth! And nowadays because of pregnancy care, mother feels way less pain than in past. Also nowdays one can become a mother without any pain at all!

Only problem with this is Quran says:

"And We have enjoined upon man, to his parents, good treatment. His mother carried him with hardship and gave birth to him with hardship, and his gestation and weaning [period] is thirty months. [He grows] until, when he reaches maturity and reaches [the age of] forty years, he says, "My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims." [Noble Quran 46:15]

Nowadays it is possible to become mother without pain

What is the islamic view of omnipotence? Can Allah make a square circle? Or he can do anything what is logically possible?

Christians believing trinity says God can do logically impossible(3=1). However what is the islamic view based on Quran and Hadiths?
