  1. Distorted Verses

    Assalamo Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatohu :D : Here are 3 well known translations, none of them come close to saying that: { Åöäøó ÇáøóÃöíäó ßóÃóÑõæÇú ÓóæóÇÃñ Úóáóíúåöãú ÃóÃóäÃóÑúÊóåõãú Ãóãú áóãú ÊõäÃöÑúåõãú áÇó íõÄúãöäõæäó } YUSUFALI: As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe. PICKTHAL: As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. SHAKIR: Surely those who disbelieve, it being alike to them whether you warn them, or do not warn them, will not believe. Obvious distortion with the "awful doom" part. { Ãöí ÞõáõæÈöåöã ãøóÑóÖñ ÃóÒóÇÃóåõãõ Çááøåõ ãóÑóÖÇð æóáóåõã ÚóÃóÇÈñ Ãóáöíãñ ÈöãóÇ ßóÇäõæÇ íóßúÃöÈõæäó } YUSUFALI: In their hearts is a disease; and Allah has increased their disease: And grievous is the penalty they (incur), because they are false (to themselves). PICKTHAL: In their hearts is a disease, and Allah increaseth their disease. A painful doom is theirs because they lie. SHAKIR: There is a disease in their hearts, so Allah added to their disease and they shall have a painful chastisement because they The pickthal translation come close to it but the verse in question is dealing with the hypocrits, 2:8-9 reads: { æóãöäó ÇáäøóÇÓö ãóä íóÞõæáõ ÂãóäøóÇ ÈöÇááøåö æóÈöÇáúíóæúãö ÇáÂÎöÑö æóãóÇ åõã ÈöãõÄúãöäöíäó}[/indent[ YUSUFALI: Of the people there are some who say: "We believe in Allah and the Last Day;" but they do not (really) believe. PICKTHAL: And of mankind are some who say: We believe in Allah and the Last Day, when they believe not. SHAKIR: And there are some people who say: We believe in Allah and the last day; and they are not at all believers. { íõÎóÇÃöÚõæäó Çááøåó æóÇáøóÃöíäó ÂãóäõæÇ æóãóÇ íóÎúÃóÚõæäó ÅöáÇøó ÃóäÃõÓóåõã æóãóÇ íóÔúÚõÑõæäó } YUSUFALI: Fain would they deceive Allah and those who believe, but they only deceive themselves, and realise (it) not! PICKTHAL: They think to beguile Allah and those who believe, and they beguile none save themselves; but they perceive not. SHAKIR: They desire to deceive Allah and those who believe, and they deceive only themselves and they do not perceive. 2:65 { æóáóÞóÃú ÚóáöãúÊõãõ ÇáøóÃöíäó ÇÚúÊóÃóæÇú ãöäßõãú Ãöí ÇáÓøóÈúÊö ÃóÞõáúäóÇ áóåõãú ßõæäõæÇú ÞöÑóÃóÉð ÎóÇÓöÆöíäó } YUSUFALI: And well ye knew those amongst you who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: We said to them: "Be ye apes, despised and rejected." PICKTHAL: And ye know of those of you who broke the Sabbath, how We said unto them: Be ye apes, despised and hated! SHAKIR: And certainly you have known those among you who exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, so We said to them: Be (as) apes, despised and hated. 2:66 { ÃóÌóÚóáúäóÇåóÇ äóßóÇáÇð áøöãóÇ Èóíúäó íóÃóíúåóÇ æóãóÇ ÎóáúÃóåóÇ æóãóæúÚöÙóÉð áøöáúãõÊøóÞöíäó } YUSUFALI: So We made it an example to their own time and to their posterity, and a lesson to those who fear Allah. PICKTHAL: And We made it an example to their own and to succeeding generations, and an admonition to the Allah-fearing. SHAKIR: So We made them an example to those who witnessed it and those who came after it, and an admonition to those who guard (against evil). The Jews broke the command of Allah (swt) so , naturally, their status was degraded. According to the Bible a Sabbath breaker must be put to death: The Sabbath-Breaker Put to Death 32 While the israelites were in the desert, a man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day. 33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly, 34 and they kept him in custody, because it was not clear what should be done to him. 35 Then the LORD said to Moses, "The man must die. The whole assembly must stone him outside the camp." 36 So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, as the LORD commanded Moses. (Numbers 15 : 32-36) { æóáóÊóÌöÃóäøóåõãú ÃóÃúÑóÕó ÇáäøóÇÓö Úóáóì ÃóíóÇÉò æóãöäó ÇáøóÃöíäó ÃóÔúÑóßõæÇú íóæóÃøõ ÃóÃóÃõåõãú áóæú íõÚóãøóÑõ ÃóáúÃó ÓóäóÉò æóãóÇ åõæó ÈöãõÒóÃúÒöÃöåö ãöäó ÇáúÚóÃóÇÈö Ãóä íõÚóãøóÑó æóÇááøåõ ÈóÕöíÑñ ÈöãóÇ íóÚúãóáõæäó } YUSUFALI: Thou wilt indeed find them, of all people, most greedy of life,-even more than the idolaters: Each one of them wishes He could be given a life of a thousand years: But the grant of such life will not save him from (due) punishment. For Allah sees well all that they do. PICKTHAL: And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters. (Each) one of them would like to be allowed to live a thousand years. And to live (a thousand years) would be no means remove him from the doom. Allah is Seer of what they do. SHAKIR: And you will most certainly find them the greediest of men for life (greedier) than even those who are polytheists; every one of them loves that he should be granted a life of a thousand years, and his being granted a long life will in no way remove him further off from the chastisement, and Allah sees what they do.

  3. Was Jesus Really God?

    Continued from previous post She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. "Who touched me?" Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you." (Luke 8:44-45) "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 16:19) "Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men." (Matthew 16:23) Judah was one of the 12 disciples of Jesus. He betrayed him and recanted. Yet Jesus addressed them (including Judah). Jesus said to them: "Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of israel." (Matthew 19:28) Jesus was All-Aware nethier of the obscure nor the manifest. He was in the dark even regarding so crude a matter as the produce season of the fig tree. It is, therefore, a flagrent blunder to take Jesus for God. (4) 'Death overtakes him not': "who alone is immortal" (1 Timothy 6:16) . On the contrary Jesus is reported to have died: "For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died " (Romans 5:6) Consequently, Jesus cannot possibly be God. (5) It is God who is the Savior of Mankind and shields them from disaster. Says David: "A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all" (Psalms 34:19) The Messiah was not in a position to rescue people from disaster;he himself requested God`s help: "Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save me from this hour'?(John 12:27) In light of this it is wrong to uphold Jesus as God. (6) God neither fears nor is afraid of anyone. Jesus was most unlike Him. He was overawed and cowed by the Jews as will be seen from the passages below: "So from that day on they plotted to take his life. Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the Jews. Instead he withdrew to a region near the desert, to a village called Ephraim, where he stayed with his disciples." (John 11:53-54) "Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ." (Matthew 16:20) "However, after his brothers had left for the Feast, he went also, not publicly, but in secret." (John 7:10) How can it be meet to take a scared and timid man for God? (7) God`s dominion is on earth and in heavan. Everywhere His authority reigns supreme and His decree can neither be evaded nor can be impeded. We know all to well that such qualities did not apply to Jesus: "Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father." (Matthew 20:23) "Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will." (Matthew 26:39) Truley, the Messiah was not God. (8) God is above all His creation. None can tempt Him for good or for bad: "When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone" (James 1:13) It was not a matter of a day or two but for forty consecutive days, the gospels tell us, that Satan had tempted and followed him wherever he went: 1Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, 2where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. 3The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread." 4Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone.'[a]" 5The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6And he said to him, "I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7So if you worship me, it will all be yours." 8Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'" "The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down from here. For it is written: " 'He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully;they will lift you up in their hands,so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"Jesus answered, "It says: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'"When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time." (Luke 4:1-13) To be continued >>
  4. the word kaafir

    :D Question: As-salamu `alaykum, I want to know the concept of infidels/kafirs in Islam. Does it refer to all non-Muslims including People of the Book? Is it okay to call them kafirs/infidels. Also, in Surat Al-Kafirun, who are the kafirun who are being addressed? Jazakum Allah khairan. Answer: Thank you for your question, which I think is an important one. First of all, the word “kafir†does not necessarily mean “infidel†as you mentioned in your question. The word “kafir†(and variations of it) is mentioned in the Qur’an in five different senses: 1. Kufr al-tawheed: to reject the belief in the Oneness of God. The Qur’an says what means: *{As to those who reject faith (kafaru), it is the same to them whether you warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe }* (Al-Baqarah 2:6) 2. Kufr al-ni`mah: to lack gratefulness to God or to people. The Qur’an says what means: *{Therefore remember Me, I will remember you, and be thankful to Me, and do not be ungrateful to Me (la takfurun)}* (Al-Baqarah 2:152) *{[Pharaoh] said [to Moses]: … And you did [that] deed of yours which you did, and you are one of the ungrateful (kafireen)}* (Ash-Shu`araa’ 26:18-19) 3. Kufr at-tabarri: to disown/clear oneself from. The Qur’an says what means: *{Indeed, there is for you a good example in Ibrahim and those with him when they said to their people: “Surely we are clear of you (kafarna bekom).â€}* (Al-Mumtahanah 60:4) 4. Kufr al-juhud: to deny. The Qur’an says what means: *{When there comes to them that which they [should] have recognized, they deny (kafaru) it.}* (Al-Baqarah 2:89) 5. Kufr at-taghtiyah: to hide/bury something, like planting a seed in the ground. The Qur’an says what means: *{The likeness of vegetation after rain, whereof the growth is pleasing to the husbandmen/tillers (kuffar.}* (Al-Hadid 57:20) Exegesis (tafseer) scholars decide as to which meaning of the word “kufr/kafir†is meant in a specific verse based on the context. Therefore, not every use of the root “ka fa ra†means the rejection of faith. For example, when the Prophet (peace be upon him) warned some of his companions from becoming “kuffar†after his death, he did not mean that they would become disbelievers but rather that they would become ungrateful to Allah, for the blessing of unity, when they fight each other after his death. Regarding whether to call non-Muslims “kuffar†or not, the answer is that we should call people the names that the Qur’an gave them. In the Qur’an, you will not find a single “O disbelievers†(“Ya Kuffarâ€, “Ya ayuhalathina kafaruâ€, or “Ya ayuhal-kafirunâ€) other than in the following two places: 1. In Hellfire, we seek refuge in Allah from it. The Qur’an says what means: *{[Then it will be said]: “O ye who disbelieve (Ya ayuhalathina kafaru)! Make no excuses for yourselves this day.}* (At-Tahrim 66:7) So, it is something that is said to them by Allah Almighty or by the angels, not by us. 2. In Surat Al-Kafirun (109) that you mentioned in your question. It says what means: *{Say [O Muhammad]: “O ye that reject faith (al-Kafirun)! I worship not that which ye worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship.â€}* But this surah is addressing Prophet Muhammad and therefore must be understood in its historical context. Allah is asking Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to address a group of leaders from Makkah who offered him the following deal: That they all —including Muhammad— worship God for one year and then they all worship the idols for the next year, and so on. That is why Allah asked him to address them in this term “rejecters of faith†and to refuse to accept this kind of deal. In the rest of the Qur’an, however, the Qur’anic style followed two principals: 1. To label certain sayings or actions to be sayings or actions of kufr (disbelief or rejection of faith), without labeling any specific group of people with that name and calling them with it. For example, the Qur’an says what means: *{Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely God is the third [person] of the three. And there is no god but One God, and if they desist not from what they say, a painful chastisement shall befall those among them who disbelieve [reject]. Will they not then turn to Allah and ask His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. The Messiah, son of Mary is but a messenger; messengers before him have indeed passed away; and his mother was a truthful woman.}* (Al-Ma’idah 5:73-75) 2. To distinguish clearly between idol-worshippers, on one hand, and believers in God and a Script that went through a phase of corruption, on the other hand. Allah called the later group only by the name “People of the Book.†For example, the Qur’an says what means: *{Quite a number of the People of the Book wish they could turn you [people] back to infidelity after ye have believed, from selfish envy, after the truth hath become manifest unto them. But, forgive and overlook, till Allah accomplish His purpose; for Allah Hath power over all things.}* (Al-Baqarah 2:109) *{It is He Who got out the Unbelievers among the People of the Book from their homes at the first gathering [of the forces]. Little did ye think that they would get out: And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allah! But the [wrath of] Allah came to them from quarters from which they little expected [it], and cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their dwellings by their own hands and the hands of the Believers, take warning, then, O ye with eyes [to see]!}* (Al-Hashr 59:2) In today’s world, we should use the same term “People of the Book†with Christians and Jews, or call them Christians and Jews, if they wish to be called so, or simply call them “non-Muslimsâ€. As for dealing with non-Muslims, the general rule is mentioned in the verse that says what means: *{Allah does not forbid you respecting those who have not made war against you on account of [your] religion, and have not driven you forth from your homes, that you show them kindness (birr) and deal with them justly; surely Allah loves the doers of justice. Allah only forbids you respecting those who made war upon you on account of [your] religion, and drove you forth from your homes and backed up [others] in your expulsion, that you make friends with them, and whoever makes friends with them, these are the unjust.}* (Al-Mumtahanah 60:8-9) And notice that the word “birr†(translated as kindness) that Allah used in this context is the same word that is used for the type of kindness that a Muslim should show his/her parents as in birr al-walidain )kindness to parents)!! Finally, it is fair enough before labeling any person as a “rejecter of faith†to make sure that he/she is clearly aware of that faith and what it entails. In my view, most people in today’s world did not reject the message because simply they are not aware of what Islam is. This is largely due to the biased international media and to Muslims themselves falling short to present their religion properly to the world. These uninformed people, again in my view, could only fall under the verse that says what means: *{No laden soul can bear another's load, We never punish until we have sent a messenger.}* (Al-Israa’ 17:15) And Allah knows best. Thank you again for your question and please keep in touch. Salam. From Islamonline

  6. :D I think the verse you are looking for is chapter 79 (Al-Naaze`aat) verse 30 which says: "And the earth, moreover, Hath He made egg shaped."
  7. Was Jesus Really God?

    :D Is Jesus Divine ? by M. Abul-Ata (A) The gospels accord Jesus (pbuh) a status not a shade higher than that of prophet and messenger. A prophet cannot be set up as God besides God. The following passage support our claim: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." (John 17:3) "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the One who sent me." (Mark 9:37) "I was sent only to the lost sheep of israel."(Matthew 15:24) "If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love." (John 15:10) "As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things." (John 8:40) "He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the One who sent me." (Matthew 10:40) Clearly the Messiah is merely a prophet, not God Himself. (B) God is comprehended from His attributes. Granted Jesus (pbuh) is Master of Divine attributes you are justified in taking him for God.On the other hand if the truth is otherwise and Jesus stands destitue of Divine attributes, your claim to this Divinity is unsound and hostile to the truth. Let us draw a comparison between the attributes and acts of God and those of Jesus (pbuh): (1) It is not up to God to pray; it is up to man to beseech and tender supplication. The way of God is to attend to man`s petitions. It is written: "The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous." (Proverbs 15:29) "But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed."(Luke 5:16) "And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly"(Luke 22:44) "Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, "Sit here while I go over there and pray."(Matthew 26:36) "During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission."(Hebrews 5:7) If the Messiah were the Lord (naudubillah) whom then did he implore? Whom did he ask in all humbleness for aid? The verses above disaprove the Divinity of Jesus. (2) God is Almighty, "I will be a Father to you,and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."(2 Corinthians 6:18). Jesus is not. He is not God. The following verses contradict Jesus` Omnipotence: "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."(John 5:30) "And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them."(Mark 6:5) "And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him. Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing."(Luke 23:8-9) (3) God is All-Aware of the Unseen and the Seen, nothing escapes His knowledge. He has the knowledge of the earth and heavan and all that is created (1 Kings 8:39). In sharp contrast, Jesus (peace be upon him) is not imbued with this attribute. Again the gospels furnish us with clear evidence: "But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father."(Mark 13:32) "Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away." (Matthew 21:18-19) To be Continued >>

    Uh Lee, I think the organization your talking about is Hamaas, not the Talibaan the Talibaan is in ;)Afghanistan. Also its not really the Jews that play a "very big part" in Islamic affairs, its mostly the zionist who, by the way, aren`t always Jewish.
