Re: God and COVID-19

Allah, the Almighty says in the Quran: We are most knowing of what they say, and you are not over them a tyrant. But remind by the Qur'an whoever fears My threat. [Quran, interpretation of meaning, 50:45] So for those here who are not arrogant and who fears the warning of the Creator, the Almighty; ...

Re: God and COVID-19

Has it ever crossed your mind that your 'God' might wish to give you this horrible death? Thank you Arizing_uk for this pertinent question. In Islam, no Muslims should feel secure from the decree of Allah, the Almighty. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that every son...

Re: God and COVID-19

Just before the covid-19 appeared, I remember that the so-called ''superpowers'' were flexing their muscles showing how powerful they were; they felt strong behind their nukes, stealth jet fighters, tanks, supersonic missiles, machine guns and their advanced technologies! Now as I see it, they are a...

My point of view

Hi forum members. This is a post to address the following statement that was said of me: I think what made you embrace Islam was the requirement for being so devout, you were a devout Christian but that wasn't enough. I was not a devout Christian, I was very weak in my faith and made a lot of mistak...

Re: My point of view

It is a question of identity laws, there is always an inherent middle amidst any continuum of images: Alright John, you didn't give me a final precise answer, so I take it that you are still thinking about it. If that be the case then you can take your time and give it as much thought as you need. ...

Re: My point of view

To ask for prayers, to those in Heaven, since they are still living, differs little from asking for prayers from those empirically alive. It reflects ancestor honor/worship in non abrahamic Faith's, it is instinctive by nature. Second Mary, the Mother of God, is genetically united to Christ as moth...

Re: My point of view

My primary personal dissonance with embracing Islam is three fold. 1. The concept of the Trinity, as evidenced in my many posts, seems to be a universal degree in which reality operates. Reality expresses itself through dualistic extremes which are synthesized under a third medial phenomenon. It se...

Re: My point of view

So. Jesus - considered a mere prophet to you (peace be so upon him - if I didn't say that he might be in some trouble) spent his life deceiving everyone (obviously not Muslims because they didn't exist until about 500 years later) that He was the Son of God? ...and went to his death stating this - ...

Re: My point of view

If anything I believe there should be more dialogues between the faiths I again absolutely agree with you. This has been a very fruitful exchange for me and I think it is important that we keep reminding ourselves in our interfaith dialogues of this natural disposition or instinct in us to worship ...

Re: My point of view

I am familiar with the ritual bath, I did it instinctively in my youth before even reading the verses in scripture. I interpret it as a ritual of purifying oneself from material aspects of reality prior to facing God (prayers, worship, etc.), but for a young man to do it instinctively implies some ...

Hi John. How are you? Please my friend allow me to contribute to your thread. I remember a time when I was following the Christian Bible which I got from my mother. I have a beautiful story on that which I would like to share with you if you allow me. In my early teenage years(from about 13 or so I...

Re: Cultural Genocide

Here is my modest contribution to this thread. I hope it helps. :D One of the very interesting thing about Islam with respect to the West, is that Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is praised and prophesied by NAME in the Jewish Bible. Here is a YouTube video which explains ...

Re: Is It Possible That This Forum Can Be Used As A Platform To Debate AI?

Hi John, how are you? To respond to your suggestion, I think yes, it should be possible to discuss AI around here. My suggestion, though, if you allow me one, would be to select an appropriate section of the forum to open a thread accordingly. For example, if you want a discussion about the ethical ...
