A BIG Difference Between Islam and Talmudic Judaism!

Question/Criticism:

Regarding the "chosen people": don't Muslims believe that Islam is the true path and that those who recognize Muhammad and follow the Five Pillars are above idolaters and non-Muslims? Jews believe their religion is the chosen one. Muslims and Christians think the same about their own.

 

You also have no proof that Moses was not a Hebrew nationalist (for lack of a better term). Perhaps he was.

 

Answer: 

Your description is not necessarily correct. Islam does not have an exclusive idea about religion. While recognizing that the revelation sent to Muhammad is the completion of the message sent by God to humanity we don't have a position of animosity towards other religions. We do not believe that it is an all or none world where either you become a Muslim or go to hell. The Qur'an is very clear about that. It says ANY who believe in God and do good works will receive a reward from God. It also adds "on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve." The history of tolerance and cooperation of Muslims with other religions is there on the pages of history to read.

Imam WDM on Gay Lifestyle

"Just a few years ago, people didn't think that equal rights meant equal rights for gays. At that time Americans could have accepted equal rights for women because that is natural. I realize that this may be offensive to some people, but I don't hate anyone because he or she is gay. I just don't see their way of life as being normal. I have been trained to believe that what is normal is that which is established in nature, and it is not established in nature that the human being is homosexual. Nature has established that the human being is male and female. Although there may be an occasional development or presence of homosexuality, that is not the norm. And if it is not the norm in nature, it is unnatural.

"The new way of thinking today claims, "Anything that happens is natural." That is not the way I was brought up, nor the education I received when I was young. We were taught to judge whatever normally occurs in nature to be natural, and the accidents or deviations of nature to be unnatural. That is how I was brought up, and I am going to hold onto that kind of thinking even if it kills me. I prefer to die that way. I must say again that I do not hate gays. In fact, I sympathize with them. It's a wonder we do not have more gays when we consider the way masculinity is treated in this society." June, 1987

5 Ridiculous Things You Probably Believe About Islam

FacebookTwitterGoogle bookmark

A conservative commentator recently made headlines by claiming 10 percent of all of the world's Muslims are terrorists. An amazing claim, considering that equals 150 million terrorists and if each were to pull off an attack killing just 40 people, they could exterminate all non-Muslim life on earth.


Either they're not all that dedicated to terrorism, or the claim is utter insanity.


Well, if there's one thing everyone thinks of when they hear "Cracked.com" it's "friend of Islam." Which is why we feel compelled to clarify a few misconceptions for our readers. Also, there is no way this article will ever come back to haunt us in any way.

Predestination vs Free Will

Question:

Is our Destiny PREORDAINED? Answer with references for your comments with whatever sources you like. And what role does our freedom of choice play if our life is PREORDAINED?

Answer:

As Salaamu Alaikum!
 
This has been a spirited discussion about a very difficult topic: Predestiny or preordainment (Qadar) vs. free will. This is a topic that has plagued philosophers through the ages. I hope to contribute something of value to the discussion, although it may prove controversial to some.
 
While there is a distinction that some make between Qadar and Qadr, for ease of discussion I will use the word Qadar to represent them both for simplicity. I'll share the distinction at some point in these comments.
 
To approach this topic, it is very important to clarify the crux of the matter. Akbar is not asking only for the definitions of predestination and free will, but he wants to know how others resolve the seeming contradiction in the two concepts.
 
The foundational concept of predestination as most understand it is that the future actions and events in a person's life are already decreed (predetermined) prior to and/or at the moment of an individual's conception or birth.
 
In other words, Allah had ordered prior to each of our births that we each would be engaged in this discussion and write the words we have written.

ALLAH OR JESUS?

Claim:  

A prison Imam is questioned about Islamic attitude towards infidels and answers as described in the following report. It is written by Rick Mathes, founder of Mission Gate Prison Ministries in Chesterfield, Missouri. 
 
Allah or Jesus?
 
Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance.   During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who explained each of their belief systems.

I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had to say.   The Imam gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video.   After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.

When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Imam and asked: "Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against the infidels of the world.   And, that by killing an infidel, which is a command to all Muslims, they are assured of a place in heaven.   If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?"
