>>105 >Confess your sins Don't do it, brother. It was narrated that Saalim ibn ‘Abd-Allah said: I heard Abu Huraira say: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “All of my ummah will be fine except for those who commit sin openly. Part of committing sin openly is when a man does something at night and Allah conceals it, but in the morning he says, ‘O So-and-so, last night I did such and such.’ His Lord had covered his sin all night, but in the morning he removed the cover of Allah.” (al-Bukhari, 5721; Muslim, 2990)

I am a Mexican who have a direct Muslim ancestry and I want some advice. For you see, my parents emigrated here from Iraq and settled in the south. My whole life was very traditional but there is a predicament. For some odd reasons, my parents choce to raise me and my sister as local Roman Catholics. This was unbeknownst to me for my whole life up until my adulthood. They said they wanted us to have a normal life, yet I always felt like I didn't belong. Truth is, my faith is with God but I want to know more about Allah. I've been studying Iraqui Arabic but I'm not sure if I should. My parents, specially my father, says he won't stop me yet he says he expects me to "do the right thing". What can I do? Please, I need some help from native brothers.
>>152 What you should do to learn about Allah (who is God btw) is learn Classical Arabic/Modern Standard Arabic, the language of the Qur'an. Knowing an Arabic dialect won't get you very far. That being said, there are heaps of Information on Islam in English and Spanish already available, praise be to Allah. So you don't really need to learn Arabic to learn the basics of Islam.
>>152 Wa alaykom asalam brother Jesus(pbuh) never referred to God with "God" because that's an english word. Jesus spoke aramaic, a middle eastern language. https://www.atour.com/cgi-bin/dictionary.cgi?string=god&Search_Field=Meaning

Any reverts here? I am very interested in Islam and can see myself likely reverting within the near future. For those of you who did revert, how did you find a good mosque, and were they accepting of newcomers? I am a somewhat introverted person, so I am mainly worried that I would feel awkward in such an environment even though I do have a genuine interest. Thanks
come to 8/islam/
>>13 I hope you find the help you need. >>14 That site barely functions, if anything 8/islam/ should come here.
>>15 The BO from 8/islam/ made a board over at 9chan, same community still.
>>15 I'm running an /islam/ board over at 8chan.moe if y'all are intrested. Barakallahum feek.
>>13 To (finally) answer this question: I had the same worries as you after converting. When I finally did bring myself to go to the mosque I found it to be the most welcoming place I ever went to. All the Muslims are brothers who treat each other softly and kindly. And to a non-Muslim who is interested in Islam they will be even friendlier. It would be shocking if there were a mosque that didn't accept newcomers. I hope you are well on your journey, OP, may Allah strengthen you and all of us.

01- I do swear by the Day of Judgment! 02- And I do swear by the self-reproaching soul! 03- Do people think We cannot reassemble their bones? 04- Yes ˹indeed˺! We are ˹most˺ capable of restoring ˹even˺ their very fingertips. 05- Still people want to deny what is yet to come, 06- asking ˹mockingly˺, “When is this Day of Judgment?” 07- But when the sight is stunned, 08- and the moon is dimmed, 09- and the sun and the moon are brought together, 10- on that Day one will cry, “Where is the escape?” 11- But no! There will be no refuge. 12- On that Day all will end up before your Lord. 13- All will then be informed of what they have sent forth and left behind. 14- In fact, people will testify against their own souls, 15- despite the excuses they come up with. 16- Do not rush your tongue trying to memorize ˹a revelation of˺ the Quran. 17- It is certainly upon Us to ˹make you˺ memorize and recite it.

255- Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. 256- There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. 257- Allah is the ally of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve - their allies are Taghut. They take them out of the light into darknesses. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.
286- The Messenger ˹firmly˺ believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord, and so do the believers. They ˹all˺ believe in Allah, His angels, His Books, and His messengers. ˹They proclaim,˺ “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and obey. ˹We seek˺ Your forgiveness, our Lord! And to you ˹alone˺ is the final return.” 287- Allah does not require of any soul more than what it can afford. All good will be for its own benefit, and all evil will be to its own loss. ˹The believers pray,˺ “Our Lord! Do not punish us if we forget or make a mistake. Our Lord! Do not place a burden on us like the one you placed on those before us. Our Lord! Do not burden us with what we cannot bear. Pardon us, forgive us, and have mercy on us. You are our ˹only˺ Guardian. So grant us victory over the disbelieving people.”

185- Every soul will taste death. And you will only receive your full reward on the Day of Judgment. Whoever is spared from the Fire and is admitted into Paradise will ˹indeed˺ triumph, whereas the life of this world is no more than the delusion of enjoyment. 186- You ˹believers˺ will surely be tested in your wealth and yourselves, and you will certainly hear many hurtful words from those who were given the Scripture before you and ˹from˺ the polytheists. But if you are patient and mindful ˹of Allah˺—surely this is a resolve to aspire to. 187- ˹Remember, O Prophet,˺ when Allah took the covenant of those who were given the Scripture to make it known to people and not hide it, yet they cast it behind their backs and traded it for a fleeting gain. What a miserable profit! 188- Do not let those who rejoice in their misdeeds and love to take credit for what they have not done think they will escape torment. They will suffer a painful punishment. 189- To Allah ˹alone˺ belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Most Capable of everything. 190- Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the day and night there are signs for people of reason. 191- ˹They are˺ those who remember Allah while standing, sitting, and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth ˹and pray˺, “Our Lord! You have not created ˹all of˺ this without purpose. Glory be to You! Protect us from the torment of the Fire. 192- Our Lord! Indeed, those You commit to the Fire will be ˹completely˺ disgraced! And the wrongdoers will have no helpers. 193- Our Lord! We have heard the caller to ˹true˺ belief, ˹proclaiming,˺ ‘Believe in your Lord ˹alone˺,’ so we believed. Our Lord! Forgive our sins, absolve us of our misdeeds, and allow us ˹each˺ to die as one of the virtuous. 194- Our Lord! Grant us what You have promised us through Your messengers and do not put us to shame on Judgment Day—for certainly You never fail in Your promise.” 195- So their Lord responded to them: “I will never deny any of you—male or female—the reward of your deeds. Both are equal in reward. Those who migrated or were expelled from their homes, and were persecuted for My sake and fought and ˹some˺ were martyred—I will certainly forgive their sins and admit them into Gardens under which rivers flow, as a reward from Allah. And with Allah is the finest reward!” 196- Do not be deceived by the prosperity of the disbelievers throughout the land. 197- It is only a brief enjoyment. Then Hell will be their home—what an evil place to rest! 198- But those who are mindful of their Lord will be in Gardens under which rivers flow, to stay there forever—as an accommodation from Allah. And what is with Allah is best for the virtuous. 199- Indeed, there are some among the People of the Book who truly believe in Allah and what has been revealed to you ˹believers˺ and what was revealed to them. They humble themselves before Allah—never trading Allah’s revelations for a fleeting gain. Their reward is with their Lord. Surely Allah is swift in reckoning. 200- O believers! Patiently endure, persevere, stand on guard, and be mindful of Allah, so you may be successful.

I do swear by this city ˹of Mecca˺— (1) even though you ˹O Prophet˺ are subject to abuse in this city— (2) and by every parent and ˹their˺ child! (3) Indeed, We have created humanity in ˹constant˺ struggle. (4) Do they think that no one has power over them, (5) boasting, “I have wasted enormous wealth!”? (6) Do they think that no one sees them? (7) Have We not given them two eyes, (8) a tongue, and two lips; (9) and shown them the two ways ˹of right and wrong˺? (10) If only they had attempted the challenging path ˹of goodness instead˺! (11) And what will make you realize what ˹attempting˺ the challenging path is? (12) It is to free a slave; (13) or to give food in times of famine (14) to an orphaned relative (15) or to a poor person in distress; (16) and—above all—to be one of those who have faith and urge each other to perseverance and urge each other to compassion. (17) These are the people of the right. (18) As for those who deny Our signs, they are the people of the left. (19) The Fire will be sealed over them. (20)

Qur’an and Context Anonymous 08/31/2020 (Mon) 05:10:10 ID: aa1e69 No.103 [Reply] [Last]
I’m not a Muslim, but I have been exploring Islam over the last few months with another non-Muslim friend of mine, and on the topic of the Qur’an, my friend has said that he finds it hard to believe that something like the Qur’an was intended to be a scripture of universal application given the fact that what happens is so contextually linked and that you basically need to read tafsir half the time to understand what a certain verse is actually in reference too (for example with “kill them where you find them...”). Basically his criticism is that you’d expect it to have more clarity and not so tightly tied into context to such an extent that you can’t even tell half the time they’re talking about something that happened after Mecca was retaken, or whether this happened after the battle of Badr, etc. I find this very strange about the Qur’an as well, and am curious why it is like this, and how it can be properly understood by many Muslims who have no access to the tafsir. I’m not here to really argue against the Qur’an, I’m mainly curious to here an explanation for this
>>103 Alhamdulillah. You've asked a very good question. May Allah grant you and your friend guidance and insight into our religion. The Qur'an is indeed a universal message for all of mankind until the Day of Judgment. That is why Allah has made its message clear and easy to understand. Allah says: > And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember? [al-Qamar 17] >(...) And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims. [an-Nahl 89] Still, we find that some parts of the Qur'an can be more difficult to grasp, such as when the Qur'an sometimes addresses Muhammad ﷺ or his companions directly, regarding certain historical events. This however does not mean that the message is limited only to them, rather Allah makes use of even these situations to grant lessons to all of humanity. Scholars have written different explanations (tafseer) of the Qur'an over time. Of course, this begs the question, why do we need Tafseer if the Qur'an is already supposed to be clear and understandable? Indeed Tafseer is necessary to fully understand the meanings of the Qur'an. Not everyone can be a scholar - the average reader who doesn't know the context of certain verses or what exactly they refer to, or may not even know the Arabic language, will have a hard time benefitting from it in the same way as somebody who is well versed in these matters. Iyaas ibn Muawiyah said: "The example of a people who recite the Quran and do not know its explanation is like a group of people who have a written message from their king that comes to them during the night, and they do not have a lamp. Therefore they do not know what is in the message.The example of one who knows tafseer is like a person who comes to them with a lamp and reads to them what is in the message." The Qur'an itself was not brought as a standalone message, but rather it was given to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ who recited it to the people around him bit by bit. When they had a question concerning the faith, they would come and ask him directly, and he would explain it to them. Today we find these explanations within the Ahadith which have been preserved. The Ahadith of the Prophet ﷺ (Sunnah) are indeed the best Tafseer of the Qur'an, as the Prophet ﷺ had the greatest amount of knowledge regarding the message of the Qur'an among all men. Most works of tafseer written by scholars are therefore based upon the Ahadith from the Prophet ﷺ and his companions. Hence the Qur'an stresses the importance of following God and His Messenger, and therefore Muslims follow both the Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

>>104 Thank you for the answer, anon. That seems to make a lot of sense to me. You are right that the Qur'an says to follow the example of the Prophet. I had not thought of that. I don't mean to totally divert the topic of the thread of pepper you with questions that might be better for the QTDDTOT, but since you seem knowledgeable, I do have one more question, less about the Qur'an itself, and more about Jesus as he is discussed in the Qur'an. In particular this verse: (4:157) >That they said (in boast), "We killed the Messiah Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah'; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Why would Allah do this, and leave the followers of Jesus unsure of what had really happened to him? Did they see him crucified but think that he died? It is quite strange to me that God would leave them in the dark until Muhammad's prophethood nearly 600 years later while all of these apparent innovations gradually crept in like the Trinity, or is the onus of them going astray totally on those who became Christians?

Halal meat explanation Anonymous 08/04/2020 (Tue) 02:43:17 ID: 943575 No.81 [Reply] [Last]
So why do Muslims have to slaughter animals in a particular way? What's the difference in meat that has been instantly slaughtered?
We are like jews, meat is not clean if not cut neck. plus it's more merciful.
>>81 Since the life of every animal belongs to God, it must be that the slaughter be done in His name.
>>82 >plus it's more merciful Its the opposite of that.
Edited last time by AbdalAziz on 08/04/2020 (Tue) 13:08:24.
>>84 Nope. https://hmacanada.org/german-study-on-stunning/ >1. The first three seconds from the time of Islamic slaughter as recorded on the EEG did not show any change from the graph before slaughter, thus indicating that the animal did not feel any pain during or immediately after the incision. >2. For the following 3 seconds, the EEG recorded a condition of deep sleep – unconsciousness. This is due to a large quantity of blood gushing out from the body. >3. After the above mentioned 6 seconds, the EEG recorded zero level, showing no feeling of pain at all. >4. As the brain message (EEG) dropped to zero level, the heart was still pounding and the body convulsing vigorously (a reflex action of the spinal cord) driving maximum blood from the body: resulting in hygienic meat for the consumer. And watch your language when you post here, please.

Islamic Fitness & Self-Improvement thread Anonymous 05/01/2020 (Fri) 04:24:50 ID: 7a6f42 No.6 [Reply] [Last]
The strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. (Sahih Muslim 2664) It is encouraged by the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to exercise, maintain physical health and a strong body. The Prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions (may Allah be pleased with them) were skilled in the arts of running and fighting, and they were extremely physically tough. Therefore this thread is intended to exchange tips, experiences and information regarding the topics of health, diet, fitness and exercise.
Quick
Are there any self-improvement guides that are strictly from Islamic sources? Especially ones that are based on the Quran and Ahadith. It should be the way to go, since Allah did say in the Quran : >And whoever desires other than Islam as their Deen (way of life) - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. [3:85]
>>37 I don't believe it's appropriate to look for diet and exercise advice in the Qur'an. In the Sunnah however we find multiple stories of the Prophet's (peace and blessings be upon him) great physical strength as well as some of his advice. Narrated 'Ali (r): “When he (s) walked, because of the speed and force of the legs, it seemed as if he was descending from a high place.” (Tirmidhi) Narrated Abu Huraira (r), “I did not see anyone walk faster than him (s), as is the earth folded for him. A few moments ago he would be here, and then there. We found it difficult to keep pace when we walked with him and he walked at his normal pace.” (Tirmidhi) Narrated Hazrat Ibn Umar (r): The Prophet (s) said ”Teach your children swimming, archery and horse riding”. So these kinds of sports are the ones he (s) recommended to the Ummah, meaning they are the best.
