What would you say as a counter argument. "Lakum dinukum waliyadin". Anyone Christian who makes that argument is basing it on two fundamental misunderstandings: That that is how Christians claim the Godhead works (it's not) That Schrodinger's Cat is actually a real cat (it's not) Arguing with someone like that, someone who doesn't even understand his own ...

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 ...

In fact, this claim is absolutely wrong. Allah has lots of names that have been stated in Quran and other supplication from Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and twelve Imams. For example, at least 99 names have been mentioned in holy Quran. Or, 1000 names exist in Jowshan Kabir (جوشن کبیر) supplication. And, Quran explicitly says: وَلِلَّهِ الْأَسْمَاءُ ...

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 ...

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 ...

The core belief of Islam is: لا إله إلا الله There is no god, except Allah So if they do not exist, they also do not interact with each other nor with Allah. If a non-Muslim prays to a false diety, then that false diety does not hear it nor has the power to grant it. However, Allah hears it and may grant what has been asked for, and He does this ...

I am not exactly sure what you are asking, God does communicate with His Messengers through various means, He spoke with some of them: وكلم الله موسى تكليما And Allah spoke to Moses with [direct] speech. — Quran 4:164 منهم من كلم الله Among them were those to whom Allah spoke — Quran 2:253 Some of the means by which Allah ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 "...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

The more exact meaning is that they are an indication, symbol or sign of the worship of Allah. As people do worship Allah by performing sa'y and supplications. As a reason for revelation many scholars quoted in their tafsir the two ahadith from Sahih al-Bukhari, the hadith on the authority of Anas ibn Malik (): I asked Anas bin Malik about Safa and Marwa....

Well , this could lead to a wider discussion of determinism vs free will , but this is definitely out of scope of the question . So here is my thoughts on this , remember when Allah said that he would create a new creation to inherit the earth and the angels voiced their concern ? وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ ...

A cat is placed in a room that is separated from the outside world. A Geiger counter which counts the amount of radioactive decay and a little bit of a radioactive element are in the room. Within one hour, one of the atoms of the radioactive material might decay or it may not. If the material breaks down, it will release an atomic particle, which will hit ...

your question is contradict each other, if you already believe in Allah and prophet Muhammad then you already a muslim. sahadah don't have meaning if just spoken by mouth, what in heart that matter. Allah know clearly everything in this world, even it's something hidden in the heart.

Being passive in weakness is a concession in certain circumstances, not an order and not even endorsed. انفروا خفافا وثقالا وجاهدوا بأموالكم وأنفسكم في سبيل الله ذلكم خير لكم إن كنتم تعلمون Go forth, whether light or heavy, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah. That is better for you, if you only knew. — Quran 9:41 ...

When it is said, “everything is written by Allah”, what is meant is everything is known by Him. Now, I get the gist of your question: If He knew a horrendous thing was going to happen why didn‘t He intervene and stop it? This is my understanding of the matter: Our lives on earth is a trial. The core essence of the trial is “how will we exercise the ...

I am not aware of any belief that "God does not have a name". And on the face of it, this seems contradictory to several statements from the Quran like 1:1, 2:114, 5:4, 6:118, 6:119, 6:121, 7:180, 11:41, 17:110, 20:8, 22:28, 22:34, 22:36, 22:40, 24:36, 27:30, 55:78, 56:74, 56:96, 59:24, 69:52, 73:8, ...

As‘salaamu alaikum. Like Medi1Saif I wonder what the brother means by “thinking about Allah”, because there are different ways of thinking about Allah. If the brother means “thinking about” as in “trying to figure Allah out so as to comprehend Him” then he is in obvious error. In 6:103 Allah says, “No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all ...

The image actually depicts the outline of an ice cream cone as you can compare below: It does not say "Allah" ( الله ) since ا and ل are not joined like this when writing Arabic. I do not think that Burger King or their artists have claimed that this is meant to depict anything other than a cone. So, you should not rely on imaginations about secret ...
