I am going to approche this question from another angle. Here is a list of animals mention in the holy book:
Do you know any other animals that exist in nature that are not ...
Prophets, according to the Qur'an, are infallible. This doesn't mean that they can't commit sin, rather it means that they won't because they are of the highest spiritual and intellectual consciousness.
As for mistakes, they don't make mistakes in religious matters either, however there have been debates regarding mistakes in non-religious matters.
In the name of Allah
1 . At first I should say that Tavaf does not mean the worshiping idol. if respecting to something means the idolatry so the ones who respect each other , are the idolater . Moreover this is an order from Allah and thus it has especial philosophy for itself.
Tavaf (I mean circling the Kaaba ) is for receiving mercy and forgiveness ...
Let me answer you somewhat fundamentally. Allah is the Just so never choose what to create or what to let not created, He creates just whatever that is creatable and having cause for its creation (addressing the Causality). Now let do some Q/A:
Is it possible for a creature to have intellect but not desire? Yes. the examples are angels. (Angels have the ...
There is general rule in islam, that we should Never Ever imitate Kuffar in any way. And touching the feet is integral part of hinduism. So based on the hadith of not imitating Kuffar we have to abstain from touching feet of elders by all means.
2nd view is that we have to do, what prophet Muhammad told us to do, otherwise everything added new to islam is ...
1) If you want to achieve or gain something in this way, actually you are invoking the universe to give it to you. And invoking/asking from anyone other than Allah is shirk. The following verses state about those who do this:
وَمَنْ أَضَلُّ مِمَّن يَدْعُو مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَن لَّا يَسْتَجِيبُ لَهُ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ وَهُمْ عَن ...
In the name of Allah the merciful the compassionate
According to the noble Qur'an everyone will encounter death:
“Wherever you are, death will overtake you, though you are in lofty
After death, souls will enter barzakh [ref] and those who enter heaven after barzakh will stay there forever. Almighty Allah says in his noble Qur'an as such:
Infallibility of the Prophets and Messengers: عصمة الأنبياء or عصمة الرسل is an agreed upon aqeedah of the Muslims, athough there is difference of opinion in the details, for example whether they are protected from minor sins and unintentional mistakes, whether they were infallible from birth or only after receiving prophethood etc.
وقال جمهور من الفقهاء ...
Actually a big mistake muslims/non-muslims make, is that they consider that God and human beings have SAME type/nature of attributes... For example, God also gets Angry and Happy, God also feels etc, but we have to know that they are all GODLY attributes, and they are NOT same or Equal to Human attributes. For example, when a human gets angry, then he gets ...
That argument fails for anyone other than the people who actually witnessed the supposed revelation, as whether it was revealed to one person or many, anyone who didn't directly witness the revelation would have to rely on the words of the people who carried that information to him, and those "carriers" are more reliable in Islam's case than Judaism, where ...
There's a hadith which goes as follows:
“Seek help in having your needs met by being discreet, for everyone who is blessed with something is envied.”
and which is more known among people in the following wording:
“Seek help for success or victory of your needs by being quiet. For verily,everything that has a ni'imah in it is envied.”
This hadith was ...
Simple answer: Because believing in the truth is better than not believing in the truth. You might as well just ask "Why is it necessary to believe that the Earth is round?"
God doesn't need our belief: He exists whether we believe in Him or not.
According to Shia Islam most of its laws are compatible with Islam but still some critiques remain according to Islam. They are useful but at their situation and not for every purpose. These laws are very idealistic, for example if one think to remaining young does not prevent aging and death. Best case of these laws in Islam are Dua.
These laws discourage ...
I have always felt that the law of attraction is compatible with Islamic teachings.
We ask Allah SWT for things everyday through duas and prayer (somewhat like the "positive thinking" in the law of attraction). This being said, one of the stated reasons for unanswered duas (and what I believe to be the main culprit when my duas aren't answered) ...
Quran is not a science book but a book of signs. I do not speak Arabic. I have read the Quran in my own language, did not see the word dinosaur. But It says Allah is the Lord of all the worlds, anything we know and we dont know. Even if it did the disbelievers would say "Mohammad must have seen a fossil this is how he knows..."
What is there for us to know ...
God decided to create and send humans to earth (by sending Adam to earth) in a form that some of them being enemy of some others. So because of this form of creating humans so they naturally create each other.
[Allah] said, "Descend from Paradise - all, [your descendants] being
enemies to one another. And if there should come to you guidance from
Me - ...
This is an excellent question and should be asked more often.
Like Wallace said, the Prophet SAW was completely illiterate but came up with the oral tradition of the Quran over a 23 year period, which many consider to be miraculous. Mind you, he was not a prodigy. Revelation started when he was 40 years old. A good question would be, what is so special ...
Although this question is too broad, I would like to state that you should focus on 3 pillars in order to get answer to this question.
You should find answers to these questions:
Why there must be a god?
Why there can't be more than 1 god?
Which attributes and characteristics should be carried by this one god?
In order to ...
Allah almighty said in Quran:
Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because on the things your
hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness.
“The things your hands have wrought" means sins done. All kind of sin. Commuting a Haram act or even morally bothering others. Or even forgetting to ...
“Hate the sin, not the sinner” is only partly correct in Islam. Only a sinner with sins wholly occupying his heart making his heart dark lacking any light spot survived in it is one we should hate and even curse against them, though, if we can identify them correctly. About any other sinner no we cannot hate himself, but we must hate the sin, and the ...
اقرأ has 2 meanings - read and recite. When the Prophet (Saw) was told اقرأ he thought he was being told to read, and that is why he said ما انا بقارئ (i cannot read). when Jibraeel (as) recited the words, that is when he realised he was being told to recite (ie repeat the words being spoken to him) and that is what he did.
see Mawrid dictionary's ...
A little bit of logic
One can only read if one has learnt to write! So both reading and writing are actions which we learn simultaneously!
On the illiterates of the Prophet
The Verse which underlines the illiterates of Mohammad (Peace be upon him) is (29:48) where the word used is تَتْلُو instead of تقرأ! Which means read and recite loudly. But from this ...
All Praise to Allah Subhanahu wa Taala and blessings of Him be on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and companions,
There are some very clear ahadith showing that Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wasallam had no shadow but some scholars keep different opinion on it ,Majority of very prominent scholars ,Muhaddith and Mufassir including Jalaluddin ...
These verses in first place show the importance of good deeds
In the Qur'an you may find that Allah mentions wealth (money and property) and children (sons) together in a couple of verses like in:
And know that your properties and your children are but a trial and that Allah has with Him a great reward. (8:28)
So let not their wealth or their children ...
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) said, "Our Lord, the Blessed, the
Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the
last third of the night remains, saying: "Is there anyone to invoke
Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so
that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My
That all depends on whether you choose to put your faith in Allah or in the Scientific Method.
The Scientific Method is a great tool for understanding the universe and all of Creation, but it is limited in that it can only apply to things that can be observed. It is useless for understanding al-ghaib.
Allah, on the other hand, has no such limitations. He ...
Allah Almighty did mention dinosaurs in the Noble Quran. While the word "dinosaurs" is a modern word that refers to the gigantic animals that existed perhaps millions of years ago, Allah Almighty referred to all created "beasts" as "dabbah". A "dabbah" in the Noble Quran consists of all animals, including the dinosaurs.
"Behold! in the creation of the ...
Why muslims should not believe in dinosaur? Since, believing in dinosaur does not contradict any fundamental beliefs of Islam, We should all believe it.
And before Allah created mankind, the earth existed. So, the dinosaur could exist also, especially when we have discovered fossil of them. I think, believing in dinosaur has nothing to do with the ...
