This answer comes from a secular perspective; if it is out of place, let me know and I'll remove it. But I offer it anyway. Short version: Ignore it. Offense has the interesting characteristic in that it is, quite literally, an imaginary thing: in only exists to the observer - it is not a concrete thing by itself. Add religion into that mix and we have ...

I think this photo will speak more than words *In response to the abusive film about the Holy Prophet Muhammad upon him blessings and peace, “Discover Islam UK” in London distributed more than 110,000 copies of a translation of the Qur’an And the life of the Prophet Mohammed for the citizens of London.

What was her name? Khadijah (peace be upon her) How did the Prophet come to know her? According to Al-Raheeq al-Makhtum, "the Prophet (peace be upon him) went to Syria as a merchant for Khadijah(pbuh). She was a business-woman of great honor and fortune. She used to employ men to do her business for a certain percentage of profits." She knew about his ...

No Prophet Mohamed was not a deity nor do we believe he was divine. He was a human being. Allah is the only deity we believe in and worship.

The hadith "Seek Knowledge even if you have to go as far as china" is fabricated and does not exist. The actual hadith is: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.’” (220. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan Ibn Maajah) I can confirm this from our local ...

Say," I am just a human being like you. It has been revealed to me that your God is the One God. So whoever expects to encounter his Lord let him act righteously, and not associate anyone with the worship of his Lord." (18:110) This is the last verse of Surah Cave which is clearly stating that Prophet Muhammad is just a human being like anyone else, ...

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 Farewell Sermon (as it is also known) can be found in all the major biographies of the prophet Mohammad such as "Al Seerah Annabawiyah" by Ibn Hisham. The second link isn't saying that the sermon itself is fake, rather that the translation quoted in the article is erroneous and skewed. And in a way, they are right. “All mankind is from Adam and Eve, ...

There are some Ayahs in Quran regarding marriages of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) like the below Ayah: لَا يَحِلُّ لَكَ النِّسَاء مِن بَعْدُ وَلَا أَن تَبَدَّلَ بِهِنَّ مِنْ أَزْوَاجٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكَ حُسْنُهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا مَلَكَتْ يَمِينُكَ - الاحزاب 52 But I have never heard an Ayah that orders Prophet to marry Aisha. I think making an argument ...

The Quranic verse 19:28 is: يَا أُخْتَ هَارُونَ مَا كَانَ أَبُوكِ امْرَأَ سَوْءٍ وَمَا كَانَتْ أُمُّكِ بَغِيًّا Ya okhta haroona ma kana abooki imraa sawin wama kanat ommuki baghiyyan The Arabic word used here is similar to the Hewbrew word אָחוֹת (achowth), its usage is explained in Gesenius' Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon as: Source: Blue Letter Bible, scan on ...

The hadith above does not indicate Jesus(pbuh) is a "faultless son" rather just that he was not touched by the Satan when he was born which resulted in him not crying. According to the Quran he was not over bearing to his mother. [Jesus says:] And [Allah made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. (Quran 19:32) Just ...

@Ali has mentioned the social political connections, but I would like to elaborate more: It has come partly from here but it is in Persian. Your question is basically why god has let the Prophet marry Aisha? The answer is that it has been for political reasons. The prophet (pbuh), to reach better status socially and politically, in order to advertise and ...

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 ...

Let me first give some explanation of the Shi'ite viewpoint on the subject. In your quotation from Sunni view: We believe that the Prophets are infallible with respect to all they conveyed from Allah, in word, deed and what they approved of. Shia Muslims believe the prophets to be infallible in any way not restricted only to their prophecy. This also ...

NOTE. parts of my answer is from Shia perspective. You can find some useful info from Wikipedia on the English, Arabic and Persian entries on the Hadeeth of the two weighty (or precious) things. These pages each has a different content, e.g. the English page shows some Sunni and Shia versions of the Hadeeth, one Sunni version of which is the one you have ...

NOTE: Some scholars say that *Wearing any ring is not Sunnah since the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) used to wear a ring for signing letters sent to other kings. Because they told him that kings would not accept any letter that has not been signed. Hence, Scholars say it is Sunnah for those who use it to sign papers and documents. And some say it is Sunnah even ...

The article speaks about some different places, so I answer separately: Ka'aba: As it is pointed to in the article, according to both Islam and history, Ka'aba was built by Ibrahim, who was a monotheist and a prophet of God. He built Ka'aba as a place for worship of Allah. But years after Ibrahim died, it was converted to a place for idols and idolatry. ...

Well, the obvious (and rather useless) answer is that English letters weren't much of a commodity back in seventh-century Arabia, so they tended to use Arabic instead: The only correct way to spell the Prophet's name is محمد‎. Phonetically, "Muhammad" is probably the most accurate romanization of the ones you listed, but even then it loses a lot. The Arabic ...

Whether our Messenger (peace be upon him) was illiterate his whole life or a part of it or what exactly is the meaning of illiterate is are Questions which i won't explain here, but i just want to let you know that they are well discussed matters among Muslim scholars! I will try to explain how the Quran was written at the end of my answer but first i want ...

The site you are quoting does not mention which book by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya they are referring to, and I could not find this hadith in any of his books. Nonetheless, it is in Hulyat al-Awliyā' (Arabic: حلية الأولياء وطبقات الأصفياء) by Abu Nu'aym al-Asbahani, Vol. 1, pp. 369, as mentioned — in addition to his other book Siyar as-Salaf as-Sālihīn (Arabic: ...

First, I don't know of any serious community leader "demanding" this privilege in the West. By and large this is something Western Muslims take in their stride as a necessary consequence of living here. In fact all the scholars that I know in the West counsel patience and information, not demands for privilege. Secondly, you frame your question about ...

If you are an arabic reader check this article from IslamWeb(which can also be translated to English) that states that the persons who washed the Prophet were: the prophet's family members who were: Al-Abbas, Ali, Al-Fadl and Kuthm (Al Abbas' sons), Shakran (the prophet's servant), Usama bin Zaid, and Aous bin Khawlah. However they washed him wearing his ...

Yes of course the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon) followed the Shariah, as well as he was given certain privileges no other got. The context in which GoldPseudo said that, was that of marriage, and that was that he was allowed more then four wives, where we can only marry four at one time, indicating that we can most likely handle four at a time and ...

The word 'Allah' as a God was well known at the time of the pagan Arabs (and perhaps even more backward in the history). In fact they even believed Allah to be the creator and sustainer: If indeed thou ask them who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon (to his Law), they will certainly reply, “Allah”. [...] And if ...

Muslims divided into two teams because of this: The first team A.k.a Shia are who believe that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) selected Ali ibn Abi Talib as a caliph after him in various situations, the most famous one is Hadith Al-Ghadeer: O people, Allah the Most Kind the Omniscient has told me that no apostle lives to more than half the age of him who ...

No one in this life can see Allah, as He said: لاَ تُدْرِكُهُ الأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الأَبْصَارَ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الخَبِيرُ Vision perceives Him not, but He perceives [all] vision; and He is the Subtle, the Acquainted.
