  5. No Compulsion In Religion

    Salaam The Qur’anic verses should be studied in their proper historical context and not just in isolation. The issue of apostasy (irtida’d) and its punishment is one of the least known and understood part of the shari‘a (Islamic laws). After the concept of jih’ad, apostasy is most frequently cited by Christian missionaries as a negative dimension of Islam. (These missionaries seem to forget the infamous Inquisition, witch-hunting and witch-burning rituals perpetuated by their forbearers in post-Muslim Spain). FAITH IN GOD: A NATURAL INSTINCT According to Islam, every child is born with the innate ability to know and believe in his Creator; this cognition has been placed by God into his nature (fitra). “...and by the soul and He who perfected it! Then He inspired to it (the ability to understand) what is good for it and what is evil for it. Successful is he who purifies it, and failure is he who corrupts it.†(91:1-10) But for human soul to function on its fitra, there is a condition—it must be kept pure, it must be immunized against spiritual corruption. Besides this fitra, Allãh has also provided us with various means to know Him and believe in Him; He sent prophets and messengers, He revealed the scriptures, and above all He created thousands of signs in the nature which remind us of Him. “Soon We shall show them Our signs on the horizon (af’aq) and in themselves (anfus), until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth.†(41:53) CAN Islam BE FORCED ON OTHERS? The Qur’ãn clearly says that, “There is no compulsion in the religion.†(2:256) What this verse actually means is that: “There is no compulsion in (accepting) the religion (of Islam).†Why? The verse continues, “Surely the Right Path is clearly distinct from the crooked path.†The Prophet of Islam has also been mentioned as a reminder, not as a person who forces Islam upon others. “Therefore, you remind (them), for you are only a reminder; you are not a watcher over them.†(88:21-22) In many other verses, the Prophet is described as “a bearer of good news and a warner of God’s punishment.†(2:119) His role was just to remind the people about their natural instinct of believing in God. Force is not needed because the right way is clearly distinct from the crooked way. This was all about a person who is outside the fold of Islam. WHAT AFTER SUBMISSION? If a person is raised in a society which protects his soul from the impurities of atheism (kufr) and polytheism (shirk), or if a person is shown the Right Path and accepts it willingly — can he declare that he does not believe in God or Prophet Muhammad or the Day of Judgement? Once a person enters into the fold of Islam, the rules change. As soon as you become a Muslim by your own choice, you are expected to submit yourself to Allah totally and completely. “O You who believe! Enter into submission, k’affatan!†(2:208) K’affatan gives the sense of “all†and “completelyâ€. Once a person becomes a believer, he surrenders the right of making decisions to Allãh and the Messenger. “No believing man and no believing woman has a choice in their own affairs when Allah and His Messenger have decided on an issue.†(33:36) Even the question of apostasy, irtid’ad or deserting of one’s faith, for a Muslim, is a religious (shar‘i) issue and even in this issue he is governed by the laws of Islam. And Islam clearly says: No! You cannot become an apostate. If there are doubts in your mind about the fundamental beliefs of Islam, then question, discuss, debate, study, and solve them BUT you are not allowed to leave Islam or desert your own fitra! It does not allow its followers to lower themselves from the sublime status of “surrendering to the will of Allah—Islam†to the status of those “who have hearts but do not understand, ears but do not hear, and eyes but do not see.†APOSTASY IS EQUAL TO TREASON The Western world limits treason to political and military terms. In Islam, the concept of treason is not limited to political and military aspects; it also has a spiritual and cultural dimension to it. In the Islamic order of sacredness, Allah, then the Prophet, and then the Qur’an occupy the highest positions. Just as upholding and protecting the constitution of a country is sign of patriotism, and undermining it is a form of treason—in the same way open rejection of the fundamental beliefs of Islam by a Muslim is an act of treason. If a Muslim has a genuine doubt on an Islamic matter, that process of doubting does not automatically classify him as an Apostate. An apostate must fully realize the implications of his open rejection and what it means—casting doubt on the truth and honesty of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as the Messenger of God. The punishment prescribed by the shari‘a for apostasy is death. “How can All’ah guide those who have disbelieved after their belief, and (after) they bore witness that the Messenger is true and (after) clear arguments had come to them! All’ah does not guide the unjust people. The punishment of such people is that upon them is the curse of Allah, of the angels and of men all together—they will remain under the curse for ever and they shall not be respited, except those among them who repent after this and amend, then Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. Those who disbelieve after their belief and then sink more and more into disbelief, their repentance will never be accepted and they are the ones who have gone astrayâ€. (3:86-90) “Do not be like those who became divided and disagreed after clear proofs had come to them, and for them is a grievous chastisement on the day (of resurrection) when some faces shall turn ‘white’ and some faces shall turn ‘black’. (It will be said) ‘Did you disbelieve after your faith? Then taste the chastisement because of your disbelieving.’†(3:105-107) Imam Ali’s personality is the symbol of knowledge and justice of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) whom he named his brother, his vicegerent and the faithful Aaron of a second Moses. The sited reference of burning the apostate is in contradiction with what is know of Ali from his historiography. “O’ you who believe! If a sinful person (read: unreliable/biased source) comes to you with a news, then investigate; otherwise you will harm (at the least, intellectually) a people because of your ignorance, and then feel regretful for what you did.†(49:6) For a glimpse of treatment of Apostates in Christianity please refer to the book “JESUS PROPHET OF Islam†by Muhammad ‘Ata ur-Rahim.

    Salam Welcome, Yes alhamdulilah there are wonderful books on Imam Mehdi a.s and many more, I would suggest a website Al-Islam org, it has all kinds of Islamic books, articles and lectures for free. Inshallah I am sure you will find what you are looking for and much more. Ma'asalam
  10. Salaam Congratulations, may Allah Almighty continue to help you grow your vision of truth. Islam guides mankind to achieve perfection through knowledge, conviction and piety. For some believers remembrance of their return keeps their eyes bent and the fear of resurrection moves their tears. In case of some unfortunate people who become habitual sinners despite clear warnings they need to be brought to justice to preserve the rights of other community members. Even though, aging is natural phenomenon, we can achieve “healthy aging†through self purification. “There is no health where there is greedâ€. (Imam Ali, Nahjul-balaghah) In order to bring peace one needs to establish justice. The cause of global unrest can be explained by prevailing social and political injustice. WAR: “Permission (to fight) is granted to those who are fighting because they have been oppressed, and most surely God is well able to assist them. Those who have been expelled from their homes without a just cause except that they say, ‘Our Lord is Allah.’ (22:39) “Fight in the way of God those who are fighting against you; and do not exceed (the limits). Verily Allah does not love those who exceed (the limits).†(2:190) Islam does not talk about jihad for the sake of aggression; rather it is allowing the Muslims to physically defend their lives, properties, and lands against any aggression, and also to fight for ending tyranny against the oppressed men, women and children. Aggression against any people is not permitted in Islam; however, defense is an absolute right of every individual and nation. JIHAD (struggle) MAJOR (spiritual) MINOR (armed struggle ) Defense (permissible) Aggression (forbidden) ABORTION: "Do not kill your children for fear of poverty; We will provide for them and you. Surely the killing (of children) is a great error." (17:31) Condemning the practice of female infanticide that was common among pagan Arabs Quran warns them of the day of resurrection when the mankind will be held answerable for their deeds “And when the female infant buried alive is questioned, for what crime she was killed. (81:9) DRUGS AND ALCOHOL: "They ask you about intoxicants and the games of chance. Says: in both of them there is a great sin and means of profit for men, and their sin is greater than their profit."(2:219) STRESS: “Know that through the remembrance of Allah shall your hearts and minds be put at rest and ease, that the remembrance of Allah is that which brings tranquility to the hearts†(13:28) Ma'ssalam

  13. Why Did Hazrat Muhammed (saw)

    Salam It is also stated in many hadiths that whenever some complained to the Prophet pbuh about a savere headace he would tell them to put henna on thier, beacause it was used as a medicine back then for curring of headaces from heat. Prophet pbuh also used it to cure his headaces and cooling the head from extereme heat temparatures, he also used to put henna on the soles of his feet to cure the sores for the heat of the ground. Wasalam
  14. Muslim Or A Kafir?

    Salam It is interesting that some of our own “muslims†in hearing my name Fatimah, people turn away or call me “kafirâ€, ways of showing hatered towards me and my name. In fact when my husband says his prayer at work some “muslim†brothers move to the other corner of the room after seeing my husband using a Turbah to pray. I am just an ordinary muslim who believes in One Allah and the Holy Quran, prays five times a day. I believe in the last prophet of Allah, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and dearly love His daughter Fatima and His twelve successors. Despite being born in the west, I do complete Hijab with Abaya, I love my Hijab because it is the flag of Islam that Allah has given the honor to muslim women to carry, as did Fatima (pbuh) and her daughters (pbu them). I am married to a very devoted muslim man who prays five time a day, follows the Sunnas of the Ahlyl Bayt, and respects all is of his colleges at work be they of any religion or race. We have named our children after the Ahlal Bayt, and are raising them according to the sayings and Sunnas of the Ahlal Bayt. If a Christian or a Jew looks with hatered or spoke disrespectfully, I would understand because Allah says clearly in the Quran: 120. "For, never, will the Jews be pleased with you nor the Christians unless you follow their religion. Say: 'Behold Allah's guidance is the only (true) guidance. And verily if you follow their desires after the knowledge has come to you, you shall have from Allah neither protector nor helper. " 121. "SURA AL-BAQARAH: Verse 120 I am not a scholar, or a very pious person, just an ordinary human being trying to follow the truth, and I am more than willing to answer any questions someone has about my faith and my beliefs My question is why this hatred? If all these are not beliefs are of a simple muslim then who is a “muslimâ€. Isn’t Fatima the name of the beloved daughter of the Holy Prophet (pbuh), for whom the Prophet said “Fatima is from me and I am from Fatima, whoever pleases her pleases me and whoever hurts her hurts me?â€. Did not the Prophet use Turbah for praying?. Does not Allah’s book the Quran, the Hadiths of the Phophet (pbuh) himself and the sayings of our Imams (pbut), describe cleary about Hijab, prayer, respect of others, naming of children after the Ahlal Bayt?
  15. Have Any Of You Ever Had A Vision?

    Asalam I had a dream like that once as a child, It was an extraordinary experience that is immpossible to put in words. When I was a teen I was under savere axiety and depression, then my dream an angle actually showed me my future husband for the first time and told me that "Allah loves you and is sending him (husband) to help you" and she told me some duas that I should never stop recieting. It was the best dream and moment in my life. When I got pregnant I saw my babies and what name he/she should have.
