  1. This Is What I Don't Understand About Islam

    The Qur’an is the word of Allah; a direct message from Allah to us His creation and Allah chose the Arabic language as the language of this message. Indeed Allah tells us this in the Qur’an emphasizing to us that to understand the message in its fuller form one must understand the language: “Indeed we have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an, in order that you may understand†(Surah Yusuf, Aayah 2) “And thus we have inspired to you an Arabic Qur’an so that you may warn the mother of towns and all around it†(Surah ash-Shura, 7) Arabic and the message of the Qur’an cannot be separated and translators throughout the ages have tried to convey to the non-Arabic speaking people the beauty of the meaning of the Qur’an but have always called it ‘The translation of the meaning of the Qur’an’, emphasising the fact that the Qur’an’s direct translation is not possible, because so much of the potency and splendour of the words and their meanings which are inextricably linked to the Arabic language are lost in English or any other language. Indeed to even appreciate the poetic beauty of the Qur’an one needs to have an understanding of Arabic. Remember that for the Arabs in the time of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) who were masters of eloquence and poetry, the words of the Qur’an itself were so unique compared to the poetry of the most eloquent of them that many came to Islam recognising that the Qur’an could not be the handiwork of even the best human poet, rather it could only come from Allah. The language itself was one of the miracles of the Qur’an. Allah challenges mankind: [using large font size is not allowed] I hope this helped :sl:
  2. Islam in America

    Asalamu-Alaykum, I am A muslim sister who lives in Atlanta,Georgia. I think it's a pretty nice place to live. It's a small city with a lot of Muslim communities. What's sad is that we have so much division amoungst the muslims themselves. How are we to set a good example if we can't create peace amoungst each other. Parents and children are fighting, Families are being torn apart and you see many youth caught in the middle. Alot of the youth have just given up on trying to go to the masjid or trying not to get influenced. We are now creating a group called UMA that is trying to bring back the muslim youth. I hope Allah helps the muslims. Amen
  3. Lawyer Joke

    I have another lawyer joke it goes like this ***I want to appeal a case****** Lawyer: "Judge, I wish to appeal my client’s case on the basis of newly discovered evidence." Judge: "And what is the nature of the new evidence?" Lawyer: "Judge, I discovered that my client still has $500 left."
  4. Destruction Caused By The Saudis

    I'm not saying that it's OK ot destroy the prophets stuff I'm saying that it prevent people from committing shirk. During hajj many people go to the Prophet Mohammed (S.A>W) 's grave and ask him for blessings instead of asking Allah. I think the Saudis are just trying to prevent that from happenning but I think there are better ways of doing that. :sl:
