Random thoughts and Notes: Days 26-29

o    The Twelver Shia talks about the possibility of Taqeeya (dissimulation) being used by the Muslims in the situations where their life is in danger. But there is one important point to be considered, which is that the Taqeeya is supposedly applied in their ideology even by the absolute religious leader (the ‘Imaam’) of all humanity in the situations where he feels in danger.

Random thoughts and notes: Days 2 – 7

Salam Alaykum,

o    (Again, my thoughts are random and they really on many tangents, but at the present, I feel somewhat unable to collect my thoughts in such a way so as to write long passages about one topic; I might even repeat a number of my thoughts from time to time, and this is simply a natural reflection of how my thoughts are moving right now.

(Draft Work) Question: “How can the Muslims say that Allah has been or will be heard and seen by the creation?”

(Please read the notice concerning our draft articles and works)

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

First of all, it has been some time since I personally wrote any new work on this site. There may still be some time before I get back to writing new articles, but I might add on to some of the existing works from time to time. Continue reading

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

Some people may ask whether it is really necessary for us Muslims, in our discussions with non-Muslims or when generally explaining the truth of Islam, to first tackle the issue of the Existence of Allah before moving on to discuss the miracles of Islam, particularly with regards to the miraculous nature of the Qur’an.

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

These are a few notes I am making on the post entitled ‘Wahhabi Contention: Asharis consider proving the existence of God their utmost priority’ on the sunnianswers blog. In fact, this is an excerpt from the Shaykh’s previous response to Yasir Qadhi’s article (on which I had made some notes on this link), but it was re-posted by the Shaykh later on, probably in order to highlight this matter and to respond to any comments specific to this subtopic.

Introductory notes on the post ‘Responding to Shaykh Yasir’

(Please read the notice concerning our draft articles and works)

By a member of the MuslimAnswers.net Team

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

What I wish to do in this and a number of subsequent articles is to write down some notes for the purpose of understanding a number of articles, works, posts, etc., written by the scholars of Islam available on the Internet. It is mostly for me to understand what these Mashaaykh have said, since some of their sayings are quite deep in places, and they need a deeper elucidation in order for them to be properly understood. I hope that the general readership may also benefit from these, since the notes come from a layman like myself and the thought processes may be similar between myself and other common people. If there are any problems in my understanding, I hope for the Shuyuukh to correct me wherever necessary. Continue reading

By the MuslimAnswers.net Team

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

The question is asked from time to time, as to how Muslims find a way out of the “paradox of God and the Stone He cannot lift”. Continue reading
