The belief that all Muslims (who are believers) will leave Hell is a belief agreed upon in Sunni Islam. This is in contrast to the Mutazilah and the Khawarij who believed that Muslims who committed major sins would stay in Hell forever, and some of them believed that a person who committed major sins would no longer be a Muslim. One of the standard creeds of ...

Many traditional African religions also knew One God. I know that East Africa, in particular Kenya, was monotheist before the arrival of Islam and Christianity. The name of God in Kenyan languages is still «Ngai». Nowadays, almost all Kenyans have converted to either Islam or Christianity so that the ways God had been perceived and worshipped there in former ...

Truth is not subjective. Something is either true, or it is not. Your four-point criteria, on the other hand, is subjective. You may use it to decide what you choose to believe or disbelieve about the world around you, but that has no bearing on what is actually true. Everything from self experiences, inferences, analogy and trustable sources can be ...

Praise be to Allah, Assalamualaikum, It is permissible to work in the company as long as you yourself aren’t involved in anything that is supporting LGBT rights.

The verse refers to the Amanah, and that is the responsibility of doing right and avoiding wrong. It means Allah offered the responsibility to Man, and Man accepted. The "Man" in this verse refers to either Adam (AS) or all humans in general like some scholars said. The question was not "do you want to be human" but rather "do you ...

Just to make you correct, Muslims don't believe that Allah (God) is in the upward direction but we Muslims believe that Allah is everywhere. Even some Islamic scholars strictly stop Muslims to give a direction (especially the upward) for Allah Almighty. (Wallah o Tala Aalam, Warasoloho Aalam)

No, rather it is encouraged to consider attractiveness among the other criteria. This is precisely why Islam recommends one to have a look at their spouse before marriage. إذا خطب أحدكم المرأة فإن استطاع أن ينظر إلى ما يدعوه إلى نكاحها فليفعل When one of you asked a woman in marriage, if he is able to look at what will induce him to marry her, he should do ...

There is no issue Islamically to have beauty as a criteria but don't make it the deciding/major factor in your consideration, as beauty doesn't last that long, and sooner or later, you'll get used to it and what remains are her personality, morals, and behavior; and that is what matters the most for a healthy and stable relationship. And most importantly, ...

No, there is no such reference in the Qur'an/Hadith, to my knowledge. The very idea of being "godlike" is problematic from an Islamic standpoint. The Qur'an contains various verses that make it clear that God is unlike any of His creation. Qur'an 42:11 فاطر السماوات والأرض جعل لكم من أنفسكم أزواجا ومن الأنعام أزواجا يذرؤكم فيه ليس كمثله شيء وهو ...

It is better for you to tell the truth than to cause upon a lie. Lying about your age is indeed forbidden, as is the principle with lying in general. So it is not permissible for you to evade this requirement in the surveys or websites. You should say the truth, if they accept it, then all the better, and if not, then the means to earn a lawful living are ...

Yes a homosexual muslim practicing islam CAN still enter paradise, So everything is forgivable by Allah, except Shirk (association of others with Allah in worship). Thus, by being Muslim, everything is forgivable by Allah will. Shirk and Kufur are alike. Surah Zumar 39:53 Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not ...

Equivalent aspect to Karma There is an equivalent to Karma in Islam; the concept is quite the same in Jewish and Chritian religion: Good and evil deeds are visible to the One God Allah.

It is mentioned many times in the hadith of the Prophet SAW. Among the related hadiths, the Prophet SAW said: "The best ceremony is the one facing the Qibla." (Narrated by Al-Tabari in Tahzib al-Athar) In another hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "Indeed, for every thing there is glory, and the noblest of ...

Let's define what tribalism is first; tribalism is a group feeling that originates from the family bond, which evolves into having a language and culture (tradition). Therefore, your usage of 'tribalism' does not fit. However, I understand what you mean. You need to understand that Islam does not approve of any other religion, hence, Muslims are right not to ...

The hadith simply shows that Umar (RA) had a deep understanding of Islam such that he could recognize what was good even before Allah gave a clear command regarding it. It does not mean that Umar (RA) is the reason something happened but rather that Umar (RA) understood what was in line with Islam. Allah confirmed what Umar (RA) said because it was in line ...

Best Is Surah Mulk as it gives one protection from the punishment of the grave. One of the companions of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) has already repaired his tent on a tomb without knowing it. When he came to know the tomb, he recited this Surat al-Mulk. Then he went to the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and related the incident and his ...
