    If you search google, you will find a lot more than just Hafs. And there is no evidence of aything getting forgotten. He was afraid large part of Quran might get lost. This is not an evidence of Quran actually getting lost. If you try google, you will find extensive discussions on this...

    A question about sects

    "From where you obtain intoxicants and also good/better food. Verily in that there is a sign....". Where does it say wine is a miracle of Allah? Have you seen the alcoholic content of heavenly wine?

    A question about sects

    Quran was both memorised and written. when one memorizes that much, there are chances of forgetting. None of these say they are no longer in the quran. Where is the evidence of Uthman juggling verses?

    A question about sects

    Clear revelations are about things that are practically implementable. These are the "mother of the book" (literal translation). Allegorical things are about the unseen. Those in whose heart is "perversity" (literal translation), follow the allegorical, seeking discord. This verse might be...

    Bengali girl in love with a Muslim man

    And Muhammad is no more then a Messenger, and Messengers have passed away before him as well. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels? And whoever turns back upon his heels, he will by no means do harm to Allah in the least; and Allah will reward the grateful soon. (3:144)

    Bengali girl in love with a Muslim man

    Persians and newly converted quasi-muslim turks had that cultural habit. Turks stopped it once they converted fully. Persians went Shia under Safavids and in Shia Jurisprudence making pictures of holly figures is somehow allowed. You wont find these cultural habits anywhere out side Iran today...

    Bengali girl in love with a Muslim man

    Intercessor and mentor are two completely different concepts. One is in the path between two points, making a connection. The other is outside the path between two points, helping/catalyzing the connection.

    Bengali girl in love with a Muslim man

    Any discussion between a hindu and a muslim eventually comes down to core metaphysics. Both hindu and muslim would agree that there is only one God. But Muslim would say one should only worship the one supreme God, as an abstract concept/entity. Hindu would argue that individual aspects or...

    Debate: Is Islam a Threat to the West?

    In absolutely realpolitik parlance, she converted and married to the king to be. Perfect choice. She must have her reasons. I am nobody to pass judgements on her. If it was anybody but Muhammad, she would havebeen raped and killed (or raped till killed).

    Debate: Is Islam a Threat to the West?

    The simple fact of the matter is Sufism has flourished in India exactly because of this. It florished because Sufis were much humane than Brahmins. They fed untouchables and honoured them as equal humans. While rest of the muslims had started their own class system It is also the reason many...

    Debate: Is Islam a Threat to the West?

    See, there is a mode of debate, where you bring all your huff n puff and then claim the other side is liar or mentally incompetent so he doesnt deserve to be heard. This is not debate. This is giving the dog a bad name before hanging him. Labeling muslims evil before funding terrorism in their...

    Intellectually Defunct

    Your definition of religion is a very western one. In sino-dharmic lands, there are only saints, immortals and divine incarnations, all being very high level mystics. In Sufism, there is a pretty old debate, the end result of which is that every prophet (semitic meaning, not western) is always...

    A for Atheist, A for A-Hole?

    The thing that I find funny about atheists is the way they think their areligiosity or purely physical metaphysical worldview is somehow more rational that the religiosity of religious people, without even realizing both stands are very much hypothetical. Both groups have their holier than thou...

    What is the problem with Islam?

    Blowing up ancient buildings and killing innocent people en masse, there is nothing about all that thats left ambiguous in Islam. This is "institutionalized crime" and is always dealt with severely by Islam. Houris dont get to come down to earth plane, pretty much like angels. Thats how they...
