Peace be upon you,

How do you know that whoever you are talking to is a Muslim or a disbeliever? When you enter into a discussion about specific verses from Quran, disbelievers and hypocrites will pretend to be Muslims and start arguing and asking irrelevant questions to confuse and distract Muslims from the main idea to mislead them. In this case, you know right away that those are NOT Muslims.

Glory be to Allah, how disbelievers and hypocrites are described in the Quran. They speak at random in the middle of discussing the Quran to distract and mislead people.

•   Quran (41:26) The Unbelievers say: "Listen not to this Qur'an, but talk at random in the midst of its (reading), that ye may gain the upper hand!"

And when you ask them why you cause corruption on earth, they say, we are the truthful and the reformers.

•   Quran (2:11) And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers.”
 
They are like a snake that spreads poison in honey, their speech and appearance are very gentle.

•   Quran (63:4) And when you see them, their forms please you, and if they speak, you listen to their speech. [They are] as if they were pieces of wood propped up - they think that every shout is against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?

And when a Muslim stands up in the statement of the truth of Allah to explain the Quran, the unbelievers and the hypocrites dispute with him on a false pretext.

•   Quran (72:19) Yet when the Devotee of Allah stands forth to invoke Him, they just make round him a dense crowd.

This is how Allah responded to the unbelievers and the hypocrites.

•   Quran (70:42) So leave them to converse vainly and amuse themselves until they meet their Day which they are promised

And Allah said to His faithful servants who say the truth about Allah not to grieve for them because their destiny is the fire of hell forever.

•   Quran (27:70) And grieve not over them or be in distress from what they conspire.

"Nowhere in the Quran is it mentioned that two women are equivalent to one man as a witness. For instance, the testimony of four witnesses is required to prove adultery, and in the Quran no discrimination is made between male and female witnesses, only the number of witnesses is mentioned. However, there is a misunderstood instance described in Sura The Cow, 282, related to time loans. According to this verse, the loan received must be evidenced by a written document, and the presence of witnesses during its execution is required. This is a commercial contract that should not harm the scribe or the witnesses. It is a well-known fact that when material interests are at play, people are reluctant to give testimony. The Quran charges this heavy duty to two men. Take note that only two men are mentioned. A phrase such as ‘or four women’ does not appear. Thus, a woman who rarely deals in commercial affairs, and is weaker in the face of likely pressures and oppressions is protected. Should two men be unavailable and only one is accessible, then the required number would be one man and two women. In this way, the obligation to bear testimony is realized, and should an untoward situation occur later, an encounter between a man and a woman is avoided. Let us assume that a dispute arose about the amount of the loan. The woman, who will have to face one man failing to agree on the amount in question, cannot avoid experiencing stress and pressure. Whereas if there are two women in the picture, they can put up a bold face against the man and the ill-intentioned witnesses will be in a difficulty to put pressure on the women. This practice, which protects women from undue pressure, has been wrongly interpreted and made a generality of this particular case. Except for this particular instance, there is no other discrimination elsewhere in the Quran. Had this been a general principle, God would have made it explicit simply by stating that the testimony of one male witness corresponds to the testimony of two female witnesses.


We have to take note of the statement that runs: “Do not injure either the scribe or the witness. Otherwise you risk swerving from the right path.” The pressure both the witness and the scribe labor under may be imagined and the rationale of the verse can be better understood."

As we have seen, the testimony of men and women is equal in all matters and in all areas. There is only one exception and this is explained in the article.

Peace be upon you,

You said in your post “Nowhere in the Quran is it mentioned that two women are equivalent to one man as a witness.”

I have already presented to you in my post above that verse (2:282) says that two women are equivalent to one man as a witness to loans, but you understand the Quran differently from what is written. Therefore, there is nothing I can do to help you.

•   Quran (2:282) … And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses - so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her

While I appreciate that you took the time to respond to my post, I don’t understand why you changed the topic from the brain of women to those who testify to adultery. The reason I did not explain “witnesses on those who commit adultery” is because that was not my topic. I used verse (2:282) just to prove that Allah said in the Quran that if one woman forgets, the other one reminds her, and this proves that Allah is talking about problems in a woman’s brain.

For those who testify to adultery, the Quran says that it requires four witnesses, but Allah did not specify whether they must be men or women, so it does not matter if they all are women or men or mixed. But for those who testify to loans, the Quran clearly says it required two men witnesses or one man and two women. So, what is the relation between the brain of a woman and your topic?

I just want to bring to your attention that when you change the topic, you may cause confusion and distract your readers from understanding the topic.

•   Quran (22:8) And of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening book [from Him], (9) Twisting his neck [in arrogance] to mislead [people] from the way of Allah. For him in the world is disgrace, and We will make him taste on the Day of Resurrection the punishment of the Burning Fire [while it is said], (10) "That is for what your hands have put forth and because Allah is not ever unjust to [His] servants."

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / A woman lacks mind and faith
« Last post by fadi on September 21, 2022, 06:33:53 PM »
Peace be upon you,

Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) said that a woman lacks mind and faith. Allah said in Quran that we use two men as witnesses to our affairs, and if there are no two men, then one man and two women. Allah replaced one man with two women, but Allah said that the reason for two women is that if one woman forgets, then the other woman reminds her. And when Allah spoke about forgetting, this means that the brain of women is weak.

•   Quran (2:282) … And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses - so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her

Doctors have discovered today that a woman’s brain is small than a man’s brain. How did Mohamed know this information more than 1400 years ago without today’s advanced technology? The answer is that God the Creator told him this information. This is evidence that Mohamed is a prophet from God Almighty.

https://www.bing.com/search?q=brain+of+women+is+small+than+men&cvid=c8b1ef8721e5462a95966a36f8e50cac&aqs=edge..69i57.1430j0j1&pglt=675&FORM=ANNTA1&PC=U531

However, you should know that when Prophet Mohamed said that a woman lacks mind, he did not mean to insult her or look down on her, rather he meant to tell men that they are sensitive and that men should take care of them and treat them well. Mohamed described women as glass vessels and we all know that we use the vessel to put flowers in it, and the meaning of glass is that glass is easy to break, so Prophet described the woman as sensitive and easy to hurt her feelings. That is why he commanded men to treat women kindly.

•   Allah's Messenger was on a journey and he had his servant called Anjasha who was driving the camels (very fast, and there were women riding on those camels). Allah's Messenger said, O Anjasha! Be careful; drive slowly (the camels) for you are driving the mounts that carry vessels of glass (women).

•   Prophet Mohamed said: And I command you to take care of the women in a good manner for they are created from a rib and the most crooked portion of the rib is its upper part; if you try to straighten it, you will break it, and if you leave it, it will remain crooked, so I command you to take care of the women in a good manner.

•   Prophet Mohamed said: The best amongst you are those who treat their wives the best, and indeed, I am the best amongst you in treating my wives.

Allah also commanded Muslims in Quran to live with our wives in kindness and when we dislike them e.g. if they harass us, Allah commanded us to be patient because Allah may reward us with something good for our patients.

•   Quran (4:19) O you who have believed, it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take [back] part of what you gave them unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them - perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good.

And when Prophet Mohamed said that women lack faith, he meant to say that it is not permissible for a woman to pray or fast during menstruation. Once cleaned, they are only allowed to fast the missed days but should not pray the missed prayers. For this reason, her faith is less than that of men because men pray more than women, but God will not hold her accountable because He allowed her not to perform the missed prayers.

Holy Quran

4:117 They are only calling on females beside God. Indeed, they are only calling on a persistent devil.

4:118 God has cursed him; and he had said, "I will take from Your servants a sizeable portion."

4:119 "I will misguide them and make them desire, and I will command them, so that they will mark the ears of the livestock, and I will command them so they will make change to God's creation." Whoever takes the devil as a supporter other than God, then he has indeed lost a great loss.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ezra is the son of God
« Last post by fadi on September 14, 2022, 07:35:32 PM »
Peace be upon you,

The Jews claim that the Quran is incorrect because there is no one in the history of the Jews named Uzayer. The Jews admitted that there is a Jew named Ezra, from Yemen, who claimed to be God, but the Jews tried to kill him, and not a single Jew in the whole world followed him. The Jews challenged Muslims to find any Jew on earth today who believes that God Has a son like the Christians believe. But the Jews admitted that they believe that they all are children of God, but they mean by the son of God, the beloved ones of God. Therefore, I decided to explain to you the meaning of Uzayer is the son of God.

•   Verse (9:30) in Quran says that Uzayer is the son of Allah (God). In Quran, it’s written in Arabic “Uzayer”, but in English, they translated to Ezra.
•   Verses (5:12), (7:157), and (48:9) in Quran, use the word “Azaro” which means honored him.
•   The origin of the words “Uzayer” and “Azaro” is “Mo-azar” which means honored.
•   Therefore, the meaning of “Uzayer is the son of Allah” is “the honored is the son of Allah”.
•   Allah explained the meaning of “the Jews said Uzayer (honored) is the son of Allah” in verse (5:18) of the Quran which says “the Jews and the Christians say, we are the children of Allah and His beloved”.

The proof is in the Torah:

When the Jews believe that they are the sons of God, even if they mean God’s beloved ones, this means that they are using the title “son” for man and for God, and this is not acceptable to God because He told them in the Torah not to misuse His name, and He is jealous and does not share His glory with anyone. The meaning of “glory" is His attributes, names, titles and descriptions. This means that God is unique and completely different from all of His creatures and everything that applies to the creatures does not apply to Him. For example, a man has a son and we say this boy is the son of Jason, so it is not permissible to call the “son” of God. It’s the same for the “father”, a man is the father of a child and we call Dave the father of Derek, so it is not permissible to call God our “father”. The titles “son” and “father” contradict the fact that God is jealous and does not share His glory with anyone. When Jews and Christians say that they are children of God, they are misusing His name and sharing the title of “son” between man and God, and since God is jealous, He does not accept that.

•   Exodus (20:7) You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

•   Exodus (34:14) for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

•   Isaiah (42:8) I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols

God told the Jews not to make for themselves any image of anything and bow down to them.

•   Exodus (20:4-5) “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.

But there is another verse in the Torah that says that God will beckon to the nations to bow down to the Jews. These two verses contradict each other, one verse says no one is allowed to bow down to anyone other than God, and another verse says that all nations will bow down to the Jews. This is evidence that the Torah is modified and contains errors. Therefore, the Jews are sharing with God “bow down”, while He told them that He does not share His glory with anyone. However, the Jews claim that when the nations will bow down to them, does not mean that they bow down to worship them, but God wants to humiliate the nations and honor the Jews. Well, the Jews should know that God honors and humiliates people with anything other than that applies to Him. Thus, when God Almighty said in the Quran, “The Jews said Uzayer is the son of God,” He meant to say, “The Jews said (the honorable) is the son of God,” meaning all Jews are children of God.

•   Isaiah (49:22-23) This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I will beckon to the nations, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their hips. 23 Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”

And God knows;

(My Turkish article translated with machine)


First of all, let me share with you a few of the things I wrote on Twitter. And then I would like to give you a few examples of some of the questions I have been asked on the internet about religion and philosophy and the answers I have given to them:


-The Quran shows what the real interests of human beings are and provides ways to achieve these interests, to achieve lasting salvation.

-We need to think deeply about our behavior, as the decisions we make will shape not only this world but also the hereafter.

-Do not fear difficulties, do not fear others, fear only the scriptwriter.

-The false Bible or Torah we have, or rumors called "narrations" are not the source of religion. Only the Quran presents the religion of Allah.

-The Quran commands the use of reason, questioning and science. This is why following superstition and conjecture is forbidden.

-God is everywhere as overseer and ruler, but "as being" He is outside our universe.

-In Islam, some of the commands and prohibitions that appear to be sacrifices are actually desires that in the long run provide pleasure and benefit in this world and in the hereafter.

-God Almighty wants you to enjoy beauty in all aspects of life, in this world and the hereafter.

-Paradise is the pinnacle of luxury, splendor and happiness, and this land of blessing and immortality is as vast as our universe.

Those who look to the Qur'an as the only source of religion and turn to true Islam are not reformers, but, on the contrary, anti-reformist conservatives in the field of religion.

-In the Hereafter Universe, that is, on the Lord's Floor, life forms are so constant that they do not even age...

-Perpetual machines machines have already been built, in fact, and it is enough just to utilize gravity to realize these contraptions.

-This worldly life is much more important than we think, as it is the test that determines our eternal life.

-Not only in the field of religion, but in every field, from philosophy to science, human beings tend to turn to superstition.

-The right way of thinking and behaving should remain stubbornly fixed forever.

-Notice how often the numbers 19 and 11 are mentioned in the news...

-There is no good in everything "for the individual", there is good in some and evil in others

-But in general, from the point of view of Allah's plan, there is good in everything and everyone gets what they deserve, in this world and in the Hereafter.

Each year has its own characteristics and collective consciousness, but these periods do not start on January 1st, but in mid-September.

-I have said that every September 17th or 18th the sound/characteristic of the new year begins, so today is actually the real New Year.

-Not relaxing until you get people to accept that you are right means that you are actually submitting to their opinions.

-Do not postpone your good deeds, try to do them sooner rather than later.

-In European and American movies, TV series and cartoons, the term "gods" instead of "God" has become more and more common, beware...

-Listening to music, playing chess or watching movies are bodily-mental pleasures, just like eating, drinking and sex.

-We are given free will in some important choices related to the test, but in other areas and moments we are directed.

-The people around you, where you live (even what floor you live on), the exercise you do, what you eat and drink...all affect your personality.

-And even the year/period you are in influences you with its timbre/characteristics.

-A true psychological analysis or analysis can only be done in the light of the Qur'anic Teaching.

-Sometimes many blessings or, on the contrary, calamities occur in our lives that we are not even aware of, and some of them even serve both functions.

-Those who wish to have children should pray for good and heavenly children who will experience the beauties of both worlds.

-Your experiences are telling you something, are you listening?

-Humanity must get rid of the delusion of making change the goal or absolute evolution and realize that some things must remain the same forever.

-Are you afraid of others or are you afraid of yourself or the collective consciousness...? None of these should be your answer.

-Most of the problems you are actually struggling with are symptoms/signs of the main/real problem.

-It is one of the results of our Lord's mercy, goodness and perfection that He rewards the good and punishes the bad.


My Twitter address for those who want to follow me (you know the words should be read from the bottom up there):

https://twitter.com/Emre_1974tr

We receive various questions either on internet forums or via e-mail or chat. Here are a few of my answers to these questions:

Question:  People's habit of trying to make haram things halal or not following them is known and criticized in the verses. But is the opposite situation, when they try to declare halal things haram, also described and criticized in the verses?

MY ANSWER:

Of course. Throughout history, in the world of testing, servants have been in a race to make what is lawful unlawful as much as, if not more than, declaring what is unlawful lawful by attempting to act as lords in the field of religion/life. Thus, the forces of evil have tried to turn religion, which is supposed to provide pleasure, material/spiritual wealth and happiness on earth, into a center of misery and misery. Although those who corrupt religion have different aims, their main goal is to ensure that people lose and stay away from blessings in both worlds. The Qur'an criticizes those who try to pretend that what is free is forbidden:

Surah Kehf

26- He does not make anyone a partner in His judgment.


Surah Nahl

116 And do not say, "This is lawful and that is unlawful," with the fabrications of your tongues, that you may slander Allah with falsehood. Those who slander Allah with falsehood will not be saved.


Surah Anam

138 In accordance with their own delusions they said: "These are untouchable animals and crops. None but those whom We will may eat them." There are animals on which it is forbidden to ride, and there are animals on which they do not mention the name of Allah because they slander Allah. Allah will punish them for the slander they fabricate.

139 They also said: "What is in the bellies of those animals is reserved for our men and forbidden to our women. If the offspring is born dead, they are all entitled to it, men and women." Allah will punish them for this characterization. He is the All-Wise, the All-Knowing.

140 Verily, those who mindlessly slaughter their own children for lack of knowledge, and those who forbid what Allah has provided for them by slandering Allah, are indeed losers. Believe me, they have gone astray; they will never find truth and beauty.
   
143 Eight pairs: Two of the sheep and two of the goat. Say, "Has He forbidden two males or two females, or what the wombs of the two females enclose? Inform me with knowledge if you are truthful."

144 And two of the camel and two of the cattle. Say, "Has He forbidden two males or two females, or what is enclosed by the wombs of the two females? Or were you witnesses when Allah suggested this to you?" Who is more unjust than he who fabricates a lie and slanders Allah in order to mislead people without knowledge? Allah does not guide a wrongdoing people.

145 Say: "I do not find in what has been revealed to me anything forbidden for anyone to eat that which you say is forbidden, except if it is one of the following: carrion, spilled blood, swine's flesh, which is filth, and an unclean thing slaughtered in the name of none but Allah." He who is in a state of necessity may eat them, provided that he does not violate the rights of others and does not exceed the limit of necessity. For your Lord is most forgiving, most merciful.

148 The disbelievers will say: "Had Allah willed, we would not have committed shirk, nor would our ancestors have committed shirk. Nor would we have made anything unlawful." And those before them denied in this way until they tasted Our torment. Say: "Do you have any knowledge with you that you can bring before us? You follow nothing but conjecture. You are only talking nonsense."

150 Say this: "Bring your witnesses who testify that Allah has forbidden this and that." If they bear witness, do not bear witness with them! And do not follow the pleasure of those who deny Our verses and do not believe in the Hereafter! They equate others with their Lord.

Surah Yunus Surah 59: Say: "What has come upon you that you make some of what Allah has sent down to you as sustenance forbidden and some of it lawful?" Say: "Did Allah give you permission, or do you slander Allah?"

Surah Al-Ma'idah 87 O you who believe! Do not make unlawful that which Allah has made lawful for you which is pure and good, and do not transgress; Allah does not love those who transgress.


The following verses reveal again that those who have a disease in their hearts love to turn their backs on beauty and ease and follow misery:


Surah Saba

18. And We made for them towns back to back between them and the cities in which We filled them with abundance, and We appointed a way of going and coming between them, and We said: "Travel therein in safety by night and by day."

19. But they kept saying: "Our Lord, put a distance between our journeys!" So they wronged themselves, and We turned them into myths, and We destroyed them all. Surely there are signs in this for anyone who is patient and grateful enough.


Also, in fact, those who pretend that what is lawful is unlawful are committing the greatest haram by pretending to be gods and associating themselves with Allah.

In fact, even those who do the opposite, that is, those who try to make the haram appear to be halal, in the long run are pursuing misery and suffering, and again, they are acting as if they are gods. People's subconscious-consciousness and their behavior is really interesting...


QUESTION 2:

He has created horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and as an ornament. And He creates what else you do not know.

Mules do not exist in nature, they were created by human intervention. So why is it mentioned in the verse among the animals created by Allah?

MY ANSWER:

Allah is the Creator of all living things, even every object that exists. Whether there is human intervention or not does not change this. Allah can use the laws of physics, man, etc. to create. But it is He who designs, creates the laws and materials necessary for its formation out of nothing. Even what is called chance is nothing but fate.

Surah Vakia

56:" We created you. Should you not confirm?"

57: "Tell us then, what is the semen that you pour (into the wombs)?"

58: "Do you create it or are We the Creator? "

61: "And certainly you have known the first creation. Should you not reflect and take a lesson?

62: "Now tell me about what you sow.

63: "Do you cultivate it or are We the cultivators?

64: And if We had willed, We could have made it dry garbage, and you would have been astonished."

67:And what about the water that you drink?

68:Did you send it down from the cloud, or is it We who sent it down?

69:Had We willed, We could have made it salty, should you not be grateful?

70:Tell me now about the fire which you are kindling,

71:Did you create its tree or did We create it?

72: We created it as a sign and for the benefit of those who pass through the desert."

In verse 70 we are told that even the fire we ignite is not actually ignited by us, but Allah has created the formation necessary for it to come into existence, so that we can make use of it.

In addition, all technologies are also brought into existence thanks to the laws set by Allah.

The ships that sail in the sea like high mountains are among His signs. If He willed, He could stop the wind, so that they would remain on it. Verily, in this are indeed signs for him who is patient and thankful (Surah 42: Shura, 32-33).

Surah al-Qamar Verse 3: They denied and followed their own desires and delusions. However, every work and occurrence is subject to decision, measure and order.

Therefore, it is emphasized in the Qur'an that the real creator of all the tools is, of course, our Almighty Lord.

Surah Ibrahim Surah 32 It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth. He sent down water from the sky and brought forth from it fruits for you as sustenance. He has given you ships to sail the sea at His command. He has also given the rivers at your command.

Surah Zuhruf Verse 12: It is He Who has created all the pairs. And He has made for you of the ships and of the beasts what you ride on;13 so that you may sit on their backs, then when you sit therein, remember the Blessing of your Lord and say: "Glory be to Him Who has given this to our command! Otherwise we could not have brought it near us."

Surah Al-Jaziya Verse 12: Allah has made the sea subservient to you so that ships may sail in it by His command, that you may ask of His bounty and give thanks.

It is reported that not only ships but all other means of transportation were created by our Lord:

Surah Ya-sin 42 And We have created for them other things like ships that they may ride on.

Although the accumulation of knowledge in the fields of culture and science may seem to bring about the blessings that provide our comfort, in reality it is our Lord who provides us with these blessings:

Surat al-Hadid: 25 And We sent Our Messengers with clear proofs, and We sent down with them the Book and the measure so that men may uphold justice. And We sent down iron, and in it is a formidable strength and many benefits for mankind. By it Allah will know who will help Him and His Messengers, believing in the unseen. Allah is the Mighty, the Mighty.

Surah Anbiya 80 We taught him the art of making armor that will protect you from your violence, but are you grateful?

In short, the Almighty, who says that He has created even technological blessings for us and that we should be grateful for them, is of course the Creator of all living beings and states this in His verses. In fact, if we pay attention to the expressions in the verses, it is said that He has created/will create even the products that will emerge in the future thanks to science and technology.

QUESTION 3:

Surah Al-Mulk 16 Are you sure that that which is in the sky will not submerge you? Then the earth will suddenly begin to shake.
   
Surat al-Mulk 17 Are you sure that He who is in the sky will not send upon you a wind carrying pebbles? Then you will know how I warn!

Our Creator is outside time and space. That is, He is not inside our universe but outside it. So why is He referred to as "in the sky" in these verses?


MY ANSWER:


Allah created the universe and time out of nothing and that is why associating shirk with Him is the greatest sin. Because nothing created is a part or partner of Him. Our Lord is separate from all His creations as a being. But He is present at every point and moment as an observer and manager.

We said that our Lord "as a being" is outside our universe. So when this is the case, which side is the outside of our universe "in terms of direction" to us? The sky, of course.

Because the boundaries of the universe are in the sky.

If we want to look through a curtain from where we are sitting, how do we try to do that? We look through the curtain, right? Actually, it is not the curtain you are looking at, but what is beyond the curtain (even though you cannot see it...)

 God (as a being) is also outside the boundaries of the universe, i.e. separate from His creation. However, to us, "in terms of direction", He is on the sky side. But in reality, of course, He is outside the sky/universe.

Likewise, Paradise in the "Hereafter Universe", or as it is called in the verses, "in the Presence of Lord", is also outside our universe, but for us it is on the sky's side in terms of direction, because that is where the boundaries and the outside of our universe are. This is stated in the Qur'an as follows:

 Surah Zariyat: 22 And your sustenance is in the sky, and what you are threatened with.

In other words, Paradise and hell are both in the sky. Of course, this is not referring to the vacuum of space in our universe, but the space in the other universe. It is talking about the Hereafter Universe (the Floor of the Lord), which has different laws of physics... In this context, we understand again that the expression "in the sky" is also used for what is beyond our universe. Because, as I said, in terms of direction, it corresponds to the outside, that is, above us, the boundaries of our universe and beyond.

It is also possible that verses 16 and 17 of the Mülk Surah may be referring to a danger or entity waiting for us in space. For example, a planet, a black hole or something else with consciousness.

GENERAL TOPICS | BOARD ANNOUNCEMENTS / the sun rises from the West
« Last post by fadi on September 07, 2022, 02:18:18 PM »
Asalam o alikum wa rahmatoAllah wa barakatuh

Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) said, “The Hour will not be established until the sun rises from the West: and when the people see it, then whoever will be living on the surface of the earth will have faith, and that is (the time) when no good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before.”

We understand from this Hadith (saying) that the sun will rise from the west, but Allah said in Quran that the sun runs toward its stopping point, and He also said that the sun does not reach the moon. Therefore, these two verses prove that the sunrise and sunset are fixed and do not change, so what is the meaning of the sun will rise from the west?

•   Quran (36:38) And the sun runs [on course] toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

•   Quran (36:40) It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.
 
Allah said in Quran that the sun is a shining light, so when the sun rises from the west, means that the light of Allah (Islam) will shine from the west, meaning that Allah will guide westerns to Islam.

•   Quran (10: (5) It is He who made the sun a shining light and the moon a derived light and determined for it phases…

The Prophet continues the Hadith and says that a soul will not benefit from faith if it had not previously believed once the sun rises from the west. But Allah said in Quran that He will continue to accept man’s repentance until death comes to him, that means, until he sees the angel of death or if he knows that he will die within a short time due to a serious illness or has been sentenced to death for a crime he committed, only then the repentance will not be accepted, so what did the Messenger of Allah mean by this?

•   Quran (4:17) The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after. It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is ever Knowing and Wise. (18) But repentance is not [accepted] of those who [continue to] do evil deeds up until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “Indeed, I have repented now,” or of those who die while they are disbelievers. For them We have prepared a painful punishment.

The Messenger of Allah meant with this is that what Allah said in verse (6:158) which says (some of the signs of your Lord will come) which means that when death comes to man i.e. he knows that he will die in a short time as I explained above, because the Prophet said that the door of repentance is open until the soul reaches the throat.

•   Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) said: Allah accepts a servant’s repentance till his spirit gargle. The gargling is: when the soul reaches the throat.

•   Quran (6:158) Do they [then] wait for anything except that the angels should come to them or your Lord should come or that there come some of the signs of your Lord? The Day that some of the signs of your Lord will come no soul will benefit from its faith as long as it had not believed before or had earned through its faith some good. Say, “Wait. Indeed, we [also] are waiting.”

There is one east and one west on earth, but Allah said in Quran: the Lord of the two easts and Lord of the two wests. Well, The first East is that the sun rises (the spread of Islam) from the Arabian Peninsula, and the first west is that the sun (Islam) was absent from the West such as America and Europe, while the second East is the transition of Islam to the West such as America and Europe, meaning that God will guide westerns to Islam and the second West is that Islam will disappear from the Arab Peninsula, meaning, they will become infidels, because the Prophet said that Satan will appear in Najd, and Najd is the Arabian Peninsula.

•   Prophet Mohamed said: O Allah! Bless our Sham and our Yemen. People said, Our Najd as well. The Prophet again said, O Allah! Bless our Sham and Yemen. They said again, Our Najd as well. On that the Prophet said, There will appear earthquakes and afflictions, and from there will come out the side of the head of Satan.

•   Quran (55:17)  (He is) Lord of the two Easts and Lord of the two Wests

This is what I understood from the Quran, if anyone has any suggestion, please share it with us. This and Allah knows best!

Surat al-Qasas 59 Your Lord does not destroy countries/civilizations unless He sends a messenger to them in their centers who recites to them Our Verses. We do not destroy countries/civilizations unless their people turn to injustice.

Our Lord states that before destroying or punishing a society, He sends a messenger to it and does so if they persist in their mistakes.

Surah Yunus Surah 13 We destroyed the generations before you because they were unjust and did not believe when their messengers brought them clear proofs. This is how We punish the people who commit sin.

In other words, for a civilization to be destroyed, there is a condition of 1) deviation (and continuation) of oppression and 2) the arrival of a messenger.

Isra

15. Whoever is guided is guided for himself. Whoever goes astray goes astray to his own detriment. No one bears the burden of another. We do not punish anyone without sending a messenger
     
16. When We wish to destroy a community, We allow its prominent wealthy people to do evil there. Then the promise to that community is fulfilled and We destroy it.
   
17. And how many a people did We destroy after Noah, and your Lord is sufficient as the All-Knowing and All-Seeing of the sins of His servants.

It is also very clearly stated that the same thing happened to Noah's people. In other words, this prophet only warned the people to whom he was sent and only they were destroyed by Noah's Flood. Everyone gets what they deserve in this world and the Hereafter.

In this context, there can be no question of the whole world and humanity being punished for what Noah's people did, as the modified Torah states. According to the Qur'an, the only protected religious source, the Flood punished and destroyed only that people.

Surah Noah 1 We sent Noah to his people to warn them before a terrible torment came upon them.

Surat al-A'raf: 59 And certainly We sent Noah to his people and he said: "O my people! Serve and worship Allah. You have no god but Him. I fear that a great torment will descend upon you."
   
And We sent to Ad their brother Hud, and he said: "O my people! Serve Allah. You have no god but Him. Do you still not abstain?"
   
Surat al-A'raf 73 And We sent to Thamud their brother Salih: "O my people! Serve Allah. You have no god but Him. A clear proof has come to you from your Lord. This is the camel of Allah. A miracle for you. Leave it alone, let it graze on Allah's land. Do not touch it with evil intent. Otherwise a terrible torment will seize you."
   
Surah A'raf: 85 And We sent to Median their brother Shu'ayb, and he said: "O my people! Serve Allah. There is no god for you but Him! A clear proof has come to you from your Lord. Be honest in measuring and weighing. Do not stoop to confiscate people's property. And do not sow corruption in the earth after it has become peaceful. This is better for you if you are believers."

In these sample verses, the societies mentioned in these verses receive one (or more) warnings before they are punished. And again, it is clear that what happened to the people of Noah is exactly the same as what happened to the people of Ad, Thamud or Median. Just like the others, a messenger comes to them because of their rebellion, and when they continue in their wrongdoing, they receive the punishment they deserve and say goodbye to the world of trial (confrontation with themselves).

Surah Al-Isra: 17 And We destroyed many generations after Noah, and your Lord is sufficient as the Reckoner and Seer of the sins of His servants.
   
Noah

  21. Noah said, "My Lord, they have disobeyed me and followed a man whose money and children only harm him."
   
 22. "And they even set great traps."
   
 23. "They said, 'Do not abandon your gods. Do not forsake Vedd, nor Suva, nor Yegus, nor Yeuk, nor Nesr.'"
   
 24. "They have led many astray. So increase the confusion of the wrongdoers."
   
25. They were drowned and taken into the Fire because of their crimes. They could find no helper for themselves except Allah.
   
 26. Noah said, "My Lord, do not leave a single disbeliever on the earth."
   
27. "If you leave them, they will lead your servants astray and give birth only to lowly disbelievers."
   
28. "My Lord, forgive me and my parents and those who enter my house as believers, and the believing men and women, and increase only the destruction of the wrongdoers."

Here, too, it is clearly stated that it was the people of Noah who were drowned in the water and taken into the Fire in the Hereafter (verse 25).  Now some will say that Noah's prayer in verse 26 is a universal request. It is the prophet's own desire, not the actual event.Noah prays for the destruction of all the unbelievers after the flood.

In other words, it is not a prayer he made beforehand, so even this is proof that the flood was localized, he makes his prayer at the very end after the event is over: 71:25 They were drowned and thrown into the Fire because of their error. They found no helpers for themselves except Allah. 71:26 Noah prayed thus: "My Lord! Leave none of the disbelievers on the earth to dwell in it."

In fact, similar regional disasters that befell Noah's people have befallen other societies after him:

17. How many peoples did We destroy after Noah, and your Lord is sufficient as a Sender and Seer of the sins of His servants (Surat al-Nuh).

ZARIYAT

31 Abraham asked: "What is your purpose, O messengers?"
   
 32 They said: "We have been sent to a people of criminals."
   
 33 "That we may throw stones of clay on them."
   
34 "Stones marked in the sight of your Lord for the transgressors."
   
35 We drove out whoever was there of the believers.
   
36 We could not find therein any of the Muslims/submitters to Allah except in one house.
   
37 We left therein a sign for those who feared a painful torment;
   
38 And in Moses. We sent him to Pharaoh with a clear proof.
   
39 He turned away with all his power/all his elite men and said: "He is a sorcerer or a madman."
   
40 So We seized him and his army and threw them into the middle of the water. He was reproaching himself.
   
 41 And there is a sign in the people of 'Ad. We sent upon them the wind which uprooted everything.
   
42 It did not leave everything it passed over without reducing it to ashes.
   
43 And there is a sign in Thamûd. It was said to them: "Eat and drink and enjoy yourselves until a time."
   
44 Then they disobeyed the command of their Lord, and the lightning seized them as they looked on.
   
 45 They could not get up and escape, nor could anyone help them.
   
46 And We had destroyed the people of Noah before, for they too were a people who had departed from the truth.

Once again, we realize that it is not the world, but only a region and its people, that suffers disaster. Noah, Median, Ad, Thamud.... what happened to all these societies is parallel. They disbelieved and turned to evil, a warner came to them, they continued to do evil and finally they were punished. All of them are exemplary events that happened to that society.


Surat al-Hadid: 26 And We sent Noah and Abraham as Messengers, and We placed the Prophethood and the Book among their descendants. Some of those descendants were guided. But most of them are those who have gone astray.

Hud

32. They said: "O Noah! You have struggled with us, and you have gone too far in your struggle with us. Bring forth what you threaten us with if you are of the truthful."

33. Noah said: "Only Allah will bring it to you if He wills, and you will not be able to prevent it."

34. Nûh said: "If Allah wishes to mislead you, my advice will avail you nothing, even if I seek to advise you. To Him is your Lord and to Him you will be returned."

35. Or do they say, "He fabricated it himself"? Say: "If I have fabricated it, my guilt is against me. But I am not responsible for the crimes you are committing."

36. It was revealed to Noah: "None of your people will believe except those who believed before. So do not grieve over what they do."

37. Build the ship before our eyes according to Our revelation. And do not quarrel with me about the wrong-doers. They will surely be drowned.

38. He was building the ark. Whenever any of his people passed by, they mocked at him. Noah said, "If you mock us, we will mock you. Just as you are amused."

39. "Soon you will know on whom the humiliating torment will come, and on whom the everlasting torment will descend."

40. And when Our command came and the tandoor boiled, We called out: "Load into it two pairs of each and your family, except those against whom judgment has been pronounced, and those who believed." But only a few believed with Noah.

Those who claim that Noah's Flood covered the whole world try to cling to this expression of collecting pairs of every living thing. But what is meant here is to collect samples from the animals in that area. If someone said to you "pick all the apples", you would think that they meant the ones in your locality, not all the apples in the world. In the same way, it is not talking about all the animals in the world, it is talking about the place where Noah was. For him to collect samples from all the creatures on earth, he would have had to make a world tour and build a huge ship, perhaps the size of a city. What is meant is the collection of pairs from there.

So if Noah's Flood was localized, how come one country was flooded and other neighboring nations were unharmed? If Noah's people lived on an island, this is quite possible. And this island could be a continental island, perhaps the size of Australia or even larger. And in that case, they would have disappeared under the waters and this catastrophe would have affected only them.

Now notice these verses:

Qamar

10. So he cried to his Lord, "I am defeated, help me!"

11. So We opened the gates of the sky with a flood of water.

12. And We split open the earth, spring by spring. And at last the waters merged into a certain measured formation.

13. And We carried it on what was formed of plates and nails.

14 It ran under Our watchful eyes; a reward for one who was rejected.

"They denied him. So We saved him and those with him in the ark, and We drowned those who denied Our signs. For they were a blind people." (Surat al-A'raf, 64)


Water descends on the land from the sky and water gushes up from the ground, and then the waters merge, according to verses 11 and 12. It is a scene reminiscent of an island sinking. To the island (perhaps the huge island continent) 1- Water is pouring down from the sky 2- There are explosions from under the earth and the water rises from there 3- As a result of this, that is, as a result of the flooding of the island from above (from the sky) and below (from underground), this flood meets the sea on all four sides and the island is completely flooded and sinks into the depths of the ocean, as it seems.

ANKEBUT

14. By Allah, We sent Noah to his people and he remained among them fifty years less than a thousand years. Finally the flood seized them. For they were wrongdoers.

15. And We saved Noah and the people of the ark, and We made the ark a sign for the worlds.

Again, it is explained that it was Noah's people who were punished and why. It is also stated that the prophet lived for over 950 years. It seems that his community did not find this longevity strange. If so, it may have been common for Noah's people to live for a thousand years, and this may indicate that they were a very advanced civilization in science and technology, at least in the field of medicine. As we know, our Lord says that there were advanced civilizations in the past, but they could not escape extinction because of their disbelief.

Let us now turn to another very important point:

ARAF

65 And We sent to 'Ad their brother Hûd. He said: "O My people! Serve Allah. You have no god but Him. Do you still not abstain?"


67 Hûd said: "O my people, there is no foolishness in me; I am a Messenger from the Lord of the worlds."

 69 "Are you surprised that a warning has come to you from your Lord through a man from among you to warn you? Remember that He made you successors after the people of Noah and gave you a greater stature in creation. Remember the blessings of Allah so that you may be saved."

Here too, a comparison is made between the people of Noah and the people of Ad, and it is stated that the people of Ad were bigger and taller than the people of Noah. So there is no comparison between the old people and the new people. It is only a physical comparison between Noah and Ad. Just like the British today are bigger and taller than the Japanese.


Surat al-Rum: 47 And We sent messengers before you to their people, and they brought them clear proofs. Finally, We took vengeance on those who sinned, and it was Our right to help those who believed.

Noah surah 1. We sent Noah to his people to warn them before a terrible torment came upon them.

And it is repeatedly stated that Noah was sent only to his people and it was only his people who were punished.

"They denied him. So We saved him and those with him in the Ark, and We drowned those who denied Our signs. For they were a blind people." (Surat al-A'raf, 64)

Another proof that the Flood was regional is the following verses:

Isra

 2. In the same way, We gave Moses the Book. to guide the children of Israel to the truth: "Take no master besides me.

3. They are the descendants of those whom We carried with Noah; he was a grateful servant.

4. In the Book, We said to the sons of Israel: "You will make mischief on the earth twice, and you will be arrogant."

Notice that the Children of Israel are "the descendants of those whom we carried with Noah". If Noah's Flood had been universal and not regional, and if only Noah and those who boarded the ark had survived the catastrophe all over the world, then all people on earth today would be descendants of Noah's people. But no, the verse says that only the Children of Israel are the descendants of those who boarded Noah's ark. So the other nations did not descend from the people on that ark, and certainly it was only Noah's people who were destroyed in that catastrophe.
