    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Yes, I understand what you are saying. My original contention was that bringing up something like the playstation is irrelevant as it serves nothing significant in the way of religion or morality. What good would it do, for a religious text to mention the games console? lol Anyway, the command...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    That is a rather weak logic. What is that supposed to mean? Good values are universal, they apply throughout all times. Why would time affect the goodness of morality? The only absolute Sharia is based on the Quran. For example, a crime of murder can be punished with anything up to...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Ok I understand. It could have done without. I didn't mean that in a bigotted or racist way. I once heard it from an acquantaince, it raised an eyebrow, but then the more I thought about it, the more I realized it wasn't totally unfounded in reality. For example, if you look at Saudi...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Hahahaha I see you intentionally ignored everything I wrote in my post. I knew from the very beginning that you weren't interested in discussing the topic with a genuine desire to learn or understand. I have repeated the explanation for it many times, but its either flying over your head...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Banjo, Hear me out. Some of what you say has some validity behind it..... from your perspective. However, your perspective is not entirely correct, and its not really your fault. You see, administering an Islamic state is not easy... one needs to be qualified with proper understanding...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Hrmm ok. Well I don't know if I am supposed to respond with an explanation, since I don't know if you are asking a question or not. Either way, I have to go now. I might come back tomorrow and expound on the topic.

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    I don't understand what you are trying to say. Please elaborate. especially the phrase; "Its a choice until its not!". Hijab is not the same thing as a head covering or scarf. Modesty and hijab is a command which is to be observed by muslims. It is not social law. If one doesn't agree...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    No one is compelled to do anything. I don't need to read up on anyones opinions. If you want to discuss Islam with me, bring me credible Islamic sources and scriptures. Head covering is an act of ones own will.

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Thanks for the warm welcome Mohsin. I've not really followed this thread closely, so I may have missed some important points out. If theres a certain topic or aspect of Islam that needs clarifying, just bring it to my attention. As for the hijab or the head covering... I don't see what...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Hey, I'm back. Been busy lately, had alot to do. Anyway. - Banjo. You are just dragging the argument senselessly. It seems you are just looking for points to argue on, just for the sake of argument, and I sense no genuine desire on your part to actually understand. 4 witnesses are only...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    I don't have much time, so here is a short and quick reply.... 1. Ijma is basically forming a law, when most agree on a given principle. It does not mean that they can't be wrong about it. All great scholars of past have said that if you see a mistake or somewhere I have gone wrong.. don't...

    Umma/Ummah

    Ummah is derived from the root word "Umm" which means mother. Ummah means to be united as being of one mother, under one platform........... like brothers and sisters. :)

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    Banjo Ijma is basically the consensus of muslim jurists during a certain time period, which forms the law. It does not necessarily mean that muslims will never get it wrong. That hadith means that the whole ummah will not be misguided totally. i.e. there will always be a number of...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    That is the crux of the matter. You don't understand the purpose of such a verse, and then you declare it pointless or wrong without proper knowledge. Islam is a family oriented religion. It places great importance and emphasis on the family unit, which inturn makes up the foundation of...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    I didn't mean that in a disrespectful way, if thats what you thought. Non-muslims generally tend not to understand the Quran because they have not read it completly as a muslim would, and more importantly to understand the essence of it all. Overall that is right, yeah. When the sharia is...

    Misconceptions and quries about Islam

    With all due respect banjo, I don't think you have proper knowledge of Islam. Why must rape be put under zina or hiraba for evidential requirements? Where does it say in Quran that you must use evidence as defined by the Book and no other? What evidence is required for a parking ticket...

    History of the Quran

    welcome. :) ya know, this place is errr how to say this..... "too civilized" for my liking. lol I am used to a virtually zero moderated forum, where there is alot of mud slinging and verbal diarrhea, lol.. All you folks here are like saints, and many seem very knowledgable and open...

    A couple of questions about Islamic beliefs about Jesus

    I can explain it, however I think this one single verse can do it much better than myself. Interpret it as you see fit, I will just offer some commentary and thoughts of my own. they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah" ;- but they killed...

    A couple of questions about Islamic beliefs about Jesus

    Well, I don't know much about the Gospel of Barnabas, but the Quran is quite clear on the issue and the usage of the word "crucified". The verse states; "they killed him not, nor crucified him". It is very possible that a person can be crucified but still survive. It has happened in the...

    History of the Quran

    I think you are referring to a certain line that has been thrown around by missionaries, where they state that Uthman Ali burned the copies of Quran and kept only one and declared it as the final authority. Some of the other claims are regarding additional verses and removal etc.. There is...
