Re: Is the Koran history or guidance?

Before Islam, there were some monotheistic religions, sure, but I know for sure you wouldn't agree with them. And what about all those Buddhist countries in southeast Asia? And China? And Japan? none of them had warnings of a god like Allah They do now *FACEPALM* So: For THOUSANDS OF YEARS, China, ...

Re: "Produce a Sura Like It" Challenge WON

So basically it was a challenge that Muhammad and the early Muslims didn't expect anyone to do. :lol: Learn what was the mindset of the people to whom the Quran came before talking. The Quran was directly challenging these masters of eloquence in what they cherished the most. They were certainly ex...

Brother, if you can come down instead of hanging up the tree, we can talk it out.
So, nothing, then?

No surprise.

Re: Stoning to death is against islam

Dear friends, let me try and put things in context so that my stand point becomes clear. I think it is wrong to think people are individuals to start with because it is not true. People are interdependent individuals ie they are not here all by themselves but due to others then we all need others a...

Re: "Produce a Sura Like It" Challenge WON

Clean your screen and read my post again. Besides, Arabic is not the only criteria. All right, let's unpack your jibberdy-talk: The Quran challenges humanity and jinns to produce a similar book in 17:88, .... which was probably "abrogated" because Muhammad got confronted with plenty of go...

Re: Is the Koran history or guidance?

The worst sin in Islam is ingratitude to the Creator, the epitome of such ingratitude being to deny the Beneficient Sustainer by associating others with Him. Worship in Islam is centered around this idea of being grateful to God. The Quran is also clear that responsible choice of creed is only for ...

Re: Is the Koran history or guidance?

Almost all belief systems, from ancient to modern have the concepts of bliss or suffering in an afterlife as a result of the deeds. Irrelevant. I was talking to Ghalib about the *Islamic* idea of the afterlife. I know Islam puts quite a bit of lip service to works as a way to get into paradise, but...

Re: Violence And Koran is Inseparable

5:34, in paraphrase, is "....unless they repent."

Yeah. That's TOTALLY better.

Aaaanyway- Mes, I think we've both said enough on this. I won't say "well, you've got your view and I've got mine" because I know you're wrong (you "know" the same thing about me, or think you do), but this is a sidebar that maybe shouldn't have even been brought up by me. Someti...

Re: Allah as Law: The Law!

I didn't say the majority of Islamic law falls with the ahadith. In fact I entirely agree with your points, raised elsewhere, that getting rid of the ahadith is a GOOD thing. But, it's not enough, and it still leaves very dangerous interpretations open in the Quran. What I REALLY disagree with is yo...

Re: Is the Koran history or guidance?

That's a Q&A from Surya Das. He's a syncretic Tibetan Buddhist who has been aiming to connect the "great" religions of the world for years. At best this link is an opinion piece of one Buddhist- it's not a commentary, and it's certainly not the words of the Buddha himself. Here- this b...

No, they don’t. .... Ummmmm... source? I've got two 300 page books translated from PARTS of the Pali canon by the Wisdom Society in Boston. With an incredibly insightful and informative introduction.

Re: Allah as Law: The Law!

Your smilies are like your animated "Dismissed" gif. Only a sign that you have nothing worthwhile to contribute in this thread, and that your cheerleading is just a matter of you backing up your "brother in Islam" Ghalib, regardless of whether or not he is correct.
