We can't answer your question as the only one who could answer it is you. Istikhara beside consulting knowledgeable people or asking for advice is what we may call a tool or possibility to help us make decisions in our life. You pray an extra nafl prayer and then make a certain du'a and ask this way for help in making a decision. Allah may lead you by ...

There are a few verses in the qur'an that create a confusion and which caused a difference of opinion among theologians, sectarians etc. Among these verse you may find the three verses you've quoted in your question. A deeper look into "breathed into him of My soul وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِنْ رُوحِي" This statement as provided in your question has been repeated ...

There is a certain delicacy when Quran speaks about Allah. I think Surah Tawhid is a great measure. Specifically و لم یکن له کفوا احد. If our spirit was of the same essence of Allah then we could countering Allah in that aspect. From the book of Al-kafi: From Imam Al-Sadiq: الصّادق (علیه السلام)- عَنِ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَاعَبْدِاللَّهِ (...

Someone very beautifully answered this question here. To summarize, Allah is above all constraints like space, time, energy and matter. These cannot be applied to Allah like it does to His creation. Allah was, is and will be. There is no beginning to Him nor an End. So to ask what Allah was doing before / now or after is illogical. If you are asking from ...

Our philosophies for what God should or should not be are irrelevant. God does get angry. It says so in Qur'an: غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ - not of those who have evoked Your anger وَغَضِبَ اللَّـهُ عَلَيْهِ - Allah has become angry with him His anger like all His other attributes is not like human anger. لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ - There is nothing ...

Arsh and Kursi are part of the Mutashabihat. They are not comparable to human concepts of throne and footstool, there is nothing comparable to Allah, He is beyond our ability to comprehend. Delving in or asking about the Mutashabihat is not good and no one can give you an answer since only Allah knows their meaning, read verse 7 of Surah Aale Imran: He is ...

As you yourself acknowledged, the hadith clearly says: Verily the Messenger of Allah said: The last to enter Paradise would be a man who would walk once and stumble once and be burnt by the Fire once. Meaning that the person will indeed enter Paradise. There is no such thing as "real" paradise vs. fake paradise. Presumably, the reference to "earth" or "...

I thought it would be interesting if I put this question in relevant historical philosophical contexts and give an account of important views. So it would be a long but very enlightening discussion I believe. Abstract can mean a number of things. It may be something that is a product of imagination without real existence. Take “unicorn” for example. In ...

First of all the sin you've both committed is among the worst you may do and the fact that you feel ashamed is a good sign as it means both of you still have faith and know that Allah sees us while we can't see Him. Also note that the sin you've committed has two parts, one that you need to repent from from Allah and this needs sincere repentance: sincerely ...

I start with quoting a statement by Musa ibn Jaffar, a descendant of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who is considered a scholarly and spiritual authority by Shia Muslims, recorded in a famous theology hadith book, named at-Tawheed as-Saduq: أنّه قال: إنّ الله تبارك و تعالي كان لم يزلْ بلا زمانٍ و لا مكان و هو الآنَ كما كان لا يَخلو منه مكانٌ و لا يَشغل به مكان ...

Generally, pray Sunnah Rakat / Naafil (almost all) at home is the best place. Based on hadith from Zaid ibn Tsabit radhiyallahu'anhu, Rasulullah shallallaahu`alaihi wa sallam said, "The best prayer of a person is that performed in his home, with the exception of the obligatory prayer." [Bukhari 731, Muslim 1861] So, pray Naafil is better to do in your ...

There are a lot of assumptions you're making there, no offence meant. Now, Allah is indeed omniscient. As for benevolence, we say He is the Most Merciful (not All Merciful). This means, more or less, Most Merciful out of all who show Mercy. No man should presume to restrict Him to complete and full ercy, and complete and full forgiveness all the time for ...

Allah says I forgive you whether your sin is equal to foam of sea except shirk. but you should not repeat your sin again and do tauba. Recite "subhan allah wo behamdehi."

Your question can be answered by reference to the idea of tanzeeh in Islamic theology. The relevant Quranic concepts are "taqaddus", "tasbih", "ta'ali" roughly meaning purification, exoneration, transcendence (The actual inflections of these three concepts used in the Quran are نقدس، القدوس، سبح، نسبح، سبحان، تعالی، متعال) Tanzeeh is the act of absolving ...

Seeing as this is an inter-personal sin, it is unlikely that Allah will hold you accountable for it after the fact that your father has forgiven you and after you have repented. Remember that Allah loves you more than your father does, and he is more forgiving that your father is.

The mercy of Allah (SWT) is infinite. He said in the holy Quran "O My servants who have transgressed against their souls! Do not despair of the Mercy of God: for God forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Quran 39:53 and we see many times Telling us that he is the most forgiving and most merciful. Allah (SWT) said in the Quran "My Mercy ...

Yes & No Actually Allah is such an existence that always existed. We everyone know that there is a gravity of earth which pulls every object which has mass. Gravity has existence. So it is abstract noun. Gravity is not sentient. But Allah is. You can't say the word Allah or God abstract noun. Allah is proper noun. Allah can't be seen. In the beginning, ...

The premise that his bringing a new "craft" (invention) to the table proving connection to a higher power does not make logical sense because tons of people [past and modern history] are able to make new inventions; that would not be proof of his prophethood v. just over his genius at inventing something (like all other inventors). By itself, this premise ...

Islam says that we have to make amends if we do something wrong against someone else that results in their harm/loss. So as per your example, if we cheat someone out of something that rightfully belongs to them then we should return it to them as part of sincere repentance. Failure to do so results in justice being served in the afterlife when some of the ...

Evidence and witness is the main elements of all judical events among people. As the creator of all, Allah puts these kind of events to prevent any objections or doubt to his divine justice. He knows everything yes,but this doesn't mean he intervenes or skips all unnecessary time wasting and cuts to the chase, we're creations of his will and power so at some ...

How do you feel when some accusing you doesn’t give you a chance to defend yourself and just gives your sentence? Allah is playing it kind and fair. He is just. You can’t punish one without setting up a trial. The angels asking is part of his trial. Our mouth, hands, feet, body talking against us is part of his trial. He doesn’t need it. We need to see our ...

In short, it's okay to do so. It is the Sunnah of the Prophets to turn to Allah (ﷻ) with their troubles. Allah (ﷻ) mentioned that Prophet Yaqub عليه السلام said, قال إنما أشكو بثي وحزني إلى الله وأعلم من الله ما لا تعلمون (He said, "I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah, and I know from Allah that which you do not know)- Qur'an 12:86.

You proceed from a corrupt standpoint, since you consider that God can have the characteristics of weakness, and this is wrong because God said about himself in the Quran: He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Fashioner. To Him belong the excellent Attributes. Gives glory to Him whatever is in the heavens and the earth. And He is the All-Mighty, the ...

In Surah Baqarah, Allah says: Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which ...

yes, you move forward and think about your previous sin and do not do them again. if you repentance with true heart Allah Almighty absolutely forgive your previous sins.

First, you should know that if Allah destroyed the Devil, the evils would not be destroyed, because there is something in our soul — actually a part of our soul — which orders us to disobey Allah. Even if Devil were destroyed, evil would continue. Second, it's better to know that Iblees was not created as the Devil. He would utter prayer along ...
