Do any of the original Qurans transcribed by Uthman survive to this day? Nevertheless, Muslim writers often claim that Uthmanic manuscripts still exist. As the Muslim dogma that the Quran has been perfectly preserved by divine decree is based not on evidences or facts but purely on popular sentiment, so it should not surprise a student of the early text of the Quran to find that this sentiment is often buttressed by claims that proof of the perfection of the text can be found in actual Uthmanic codices still in existence. There are many references in modern Muslim writings to Qurans said to have belonged to Uthman, Ali or the grandsons of Muhammad which are said to have survived to this day. One cannot help wondering whether in such cases the wish is not perhaps father to the thought. We shall give two direct examples of such claims made even today for different Qurans towards the end of this section.
We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our selves and from the evil results of our actions. I testify that Allah alone is worthy of worship and that Muhammad is His slave and final Messenger. May Allah’s salawat peace and blessings be upon the last and final messenger Muhammad, his family and his followers. The best discourse is the book of Allah, and the best way is the way of Muhammad, and the worst of the matters in the religion are those newly introduced innovations, for every innovation in the religion is misguidance, and every misguidance is going astray and every going astray is in the Hellfire.
I have embarked on my commentary on the The Economist magazine’s survey “Islam and the West” large insert in the August 6, issue after some considerable deliberation, and find myself confronted with a considerable task, and indeed Allah is the best of helpers.
News > World > Americas Muslim and Christian make new Quran translation to show the two religions’ similarities ‘Most of the tension that exists post-9/11 is because Christians fear the Quran.
What commends it Quran so powerfully to the historian is its authenticity, not as the Word of God, of course, as the Muslims believe but as the secular historian cannot and should not, but rather as a document attesting to what Muhammad said at that time and place, early seventh-century Mecca. It is not a transcript, however; our present Quran is the result of an edition prepared under the orders of Uthman Those Uthmanic clues are fragmentary, however, and large ‘invented’ portions might well have been added to our Quran or authentic material deleted.
So it has been charged in fact by some Muslims who failed to find in the present Quran any explicit reference to the designation of a successor to the Prophet and so have alleged tampering with the original texts. But the argument is so patently tendentious and the evidence adduced for the fact so exiguous that few have failed to be convinced that what is in our copy of the Quran is in fact what Muhammad taught, and is expressed in his own words.
Muhammad, according to tradition, recited perfectly what the angel Gabriel revealed to him for his companions to write down and memorize.
Can We Date – in Islam? Here is The Question: Can we ‘date’ in Islam?
Voices Muslim men need to understand that the Quran says they should observe hijab first, not women. For some reason, a lot of men seem to think they can simply force women to observe hijab.
Islam strongly prohibits the killing of any person without lawful reasons. Islamic teachings do not allow any person to take the law into their own hands and to commit murder, no matter what justification is used. Although Islam does impose the capital punishment for certain crimes, no one person can act as the accuer, judge and executioner.
This would lead to a complete breakdown of society, as any person would be able to commit murder and then claim that they had valid reasons for doing so. Therefore, Islam has instituted a very specific system of implementing the law. Islam requires that a judge hear the case of both the accuser and the accused, and to listen to witnesses before making any judgement. This ensures that society operates based on the rule of law such that justice is established.
The following statements from the holy Quran demonstrate how strongly Islam prohibits murder: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone kills a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if they killed all people. And if any one saved a life, it would be as if they saved the life of all people.
It is usually carried out against a female family member who is seen by relatives as dishonoring their family through real or perceived acts of indiscretion, such as premarital sexual relations or unapproved dating. In many cases of “honour killing”, the accused woman is innocent, and is killed purely based on suspicion.
In other cases, the issue of “honour” is used as a cover to justify a murder that was really committed for other purposes.
At the bottom of this post appear the sahih or authorized translations from Quran. Below is also a summary of the koranic view of women, as well as relevant videos by Muslim authorities, expressing a very typical attitude towards women. Please note that millions of children worldwide are forced to learn these koranic scriptures by memory. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….
Good women are obedient.
Feb 14, · What Islaam Says About Dating The most common questions I get from young people are, “Do Muslims date?” and, “If they don’t date, how do they decide whose the right person for them to marry?” “Dating” as it is currently practiced in much of the world does not exist among Muslims – .
Introduction But the hoopoe tarried not far: I found there a woman ruling over them and provided with every requisite; and she has a magnificent throne. I found her and her people worshipping the sun besides Allah: Satan has made their deeds seem pleasing in their eyes, and has kept them away from the Path,- so they receive no guidance Solomon was also told that the Queen and her subjects worshipped the Sun.
However, according to the Christian missionaries “archaeology” has shown that Sun-worship by the people of Sheba was “proven” to be incorrect since Moon-worship was prevalent in this particular region. A measure of Muhammad’s limited knowledge of the ancient traditions of the Arab deities is gained from the fact that the Qur’an states that the Queen of Sheba was converted to the true god from the sun-worship of her people Pritchard 14 , while all the evidence at Marib suggests that the Moon God, the very source of the crescent of Islam, was always the predominant deity.
Recently, another missionary came up with a similar claim which he made by assembling bits and pieces of material off the internet which he subsequently labelled as “archaeological evidence”. It is surprising that the above two articles, which claim to represent “archaeology” do not provide any scholarly reference s as to where exactly the evidence from Marib suggests that the Moon-god was always the “predominant deity” during the time of the Queen of Sheba. In this paper, we will examine the type of worship practised in the Kingdom of Sheba utilising archaeological and literary sources.
Chronology And Location Of The Kingdom Of Sheba Before we begin our discussion on the kind of worship which used to happen during the time of Queen of Sheba, we must first establish the chronology and the location of the Kingdom of Sheba. This will enable us to gain an understanding of and appreciate the archaeological discoveries.
Rather, in Islam pre-marital relationships of any kind between members of the opposite sex are forbidden. Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and protect their private parts…. Allaah orders the Muslim women not to talk unnecessarily or in a soft manner to strange men. Who could be purer than the wives of the Prophet Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam and who could be higher in taqwa than the Sahaabah?
Proofs that Quran is a Revelation from Allah by Sheikh Abdur-Raheem Green All praise is due to Allah, we praise Him and we seek his help and ask His forgiveness.
Please enter a valid email Women in the Quran and the Sunnah Prof. Doi In Islam there is absolutely no difference between men and women as far as their relationship to Allah is concerned, as both are promised the same reward for good conduct and the same punishment for evil conduct. The Quran says that women have souls in exactly the same way as men and will enter Paradise if they do good: You are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should you treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the dowry you have given them – except when they have become guilty of open lewdness.
On the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If you take a dislike to them, it may be that you dislike something and Allah will bring about through it a great deal of good.
Surah As Saff The Ranks Name The Surah derives its name from the sentence yuqatiluna fi sabil-i- hlsaff-an of verse 4; thereby implying that it is a Surah in which the word saff occurred. Period of Revelation It could not be known from any reliable tradition, but a study of its subject-matter shows that this Surah probably was sent down in the period closely following the Battle of Uhud, for by reading between the lines perceives a clear description of the conditions that prevailed in that period.
Theme and Subject Matter Its theme is to exhort the Muslims to adopt sincerity in Faith and to struggle with their lives in the cause of Allah. It is addressed to the Muslims with weak faith as well as those who had entered Islam with a false profession of the Faith and also those who were sincere in their profession. Some verses are addressed to the first two groups, some only to the hypocrites, and some only to the sincere Muslims. The style itself shows where one particular group has been addressed and where the other.
Following are pertinent quotes from the Koran/Quran regarding women, from the Dawood translation with the side-by-side Arabic. At the bottom of this post appear the sahih or authorized translations from , saying essentially the same things, although Dawood is more literal, direct and blunt. Below is also a summary of the koranic view of women, [ ].
A Christian missionary trying to evangelize Muslims would answer in the affirmative. When pressed for an evidence to back up his claims about the integrity of his book from the advent of Islam until today, the missionary quickly turns to the Qur’an and the hadith, to the surprise of Muslims. Now if we apply the standards used for authenticating the integrity of the Qur’an and the hadith, such as the isnad i.
Isnad is a part of the religion of Islam. The isnad is part of the religion: One such incident happened in the newsgroup soc. That is a bogus argument from an Islamic point of view. The scriptures are demonstrably the same today as in Muhammad’s time. As far as the missionary’s position stands, there is neither any “demonstration” nor any show of “genuineness” of his scriptures since the time of Muhammad P. This is not surprising.
Its liturgical context is seen in a number of passages, for example: The latter two terms also denote units of revelation. The term mus’haf ‘written work’ is often used to refer to particular Quranic manuscripts but is also used in the Quran to identify earlier revealed books. Wahy Cave of Hira, location of Muhammad’s first revelation.

When she arrived for class, however, she was greeted by a perfectly appropriate surprise suitable for such a religious bigot. Canary Mission Leftists continue pushing the narrative that Muslims in the West are perpetual victims of Islamophobia, accusing us of an undue fear. This special protection of Muslims is likely why one educator believed she could get away with declaring her disdain for other religions and races.
With Twitter posts dating as far back as , Salem tweeted dozens of times that she wanted to see non-Muslims killed because of their race and religion. Fortunately, outraged parents who saw these tweets inundated the school with angry letters. Our employees are expected to uphold certain standards of person and professional conduct. Our senior leadership thoroughly investigated this matter. Salem tweeted dozens of posts promoting the murder of civilians based on their race and religion before deleting them.
I love you baby girl! See you in 3 weeks! Kiss the Palestine ground for me and kill some jews!
The importance and essence of Tawheed Islamic monotheism. And a whole lot more. New Muslims should immediately try to find a basic Islam or New Muslim class at a local Masjid and start learning about this religion. Well, it is important.

Shabbir Ahmed believes that he has lived a simple and a ordinary life and he is quite contented about it within his heart. The very next day, his honorable parents, Abdul Rashid and Rashida Begum moved to Karachi, Pakistan along with their two little sons Shabbir and his older brother Saeed Ahmed — Saeed Ahmed, a kind-hearted, first class gentleman and a conscientious, hard-working pharmacist, died in New York.
Although only slightly older, Saeed extended a father figure role for his younger brother, Shabbir, through his ever sustaining love and kindness. Their father served with distinction as an engineer at All India Radio, and later at Radio Pakistan, Karachi until his retirement in Living with Shabbir and his lovely wife, Farida, he died in Florida in The honorable mother lives with Dr.

All her life, she has been an extraordinarily loving, caring and soothing presence for the extended family, friends, neighbors and anyone needing help, or just having the honor of meeting with her. When asked about Farida, Dr. Those who know Farida agree that she is an ideal daughter, sister, wife and mother.
Many scholars have been advocating rules that are in direct violation to God’s clear law in the Quran. Sadly, in male orientated cultures we hear the claim that a Muslim man may marry a woman of other religions e. They explain this male biased innovation by a number of un-Quranic justifications. Some say that this privilege is given to the man because the child takes the religion of his father and not his mother, and thus a Muslim man may marry a non Muslim woman but still have the child raised as a Muslim, while as if a Muslim woman married a Christian man for example, the child would be raised as a Christian.
This claim is without any Quranic justification.
Studies using radiocarbon dating indicate that the parchments are dated to the period before CE with a 99 percent probability. Birmingham Quran manuscript, dated As the Quran says, “With the truth we (God) have sent it down and with the truth it has come down.”Religion: Islam.
Such an assertion, however, is highly problematic, and many, many arguments could be given to convincingly refute it. In this article, I am going to offer one of those reasons, which I perceive to be the most damning. My argument here can be summarized in syllogistic form as follows: Either the Bible is the Word of God or it is not.
First, a note of qualification. Premise 1 need not be defended, since it is self-evident that the two alternatives are mutually exclusive and exhaustive possibilities.
