How do Muslims explain Surat al-Kahf? All evidence points to it being directed lifted from Syriac versions of the Alexander Romance, parts of the Surah being almost exact quotations and paraphrases of said work, which of course predates the Qur'an. How do Muslims explain the fact that the 'horns' of Dhu al-Qurnayn's name refer to the horns of Alexander the Great that appear on coins circulating in the Middle East, which were of course the horns of the pagan god Ammon? And this said, where is the wall of Yajuj and Majuj? I believe this to be the weakest part of the Qur'an.

>>316 >where is the wall of Yajuj and Majuj? God knows best.
>>319 Pre-Islamic fictional Christian sources refer to the story of Dhu al-Qarnayn. Why does the Qur’an reproduce lies?
>>319 Correct. The stories belonged to Allah in the first place. The Quran sets the record straight, and has the story bring more good in the process. Any similarity is simply a result of effective story principles, universally accessible to all literate cultures. The Romance is effective in its own civilization, but hardly anyone knows it. Far more people are familiar with it, especially in its text form, in the proper Quranic version and context. Any version differing from the Quran was a distortion of the true account. Europeans are especially guilty of distorting things, being a vile trait influenced by their drama culture, which makes them neurotically seek new versions of things, which are usually trivial or harmful, and almost always disregarding seeking real substance.
>>327 we believe the pre-islamic stories were corruptions of actual History (about Alexander ? another emperor ? nothing is said on the matter). The Quran merely restores that specific story to truth God knows best
From https://islamqa.info/en/answers/22029/ "3 – The difference between this righteous slave, and the Macedonian Alexander who was a kaafir, is well known to Muslim scholars. Ibn Katheer (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Badaayah wa’l-Nahaayah (1/493): “It was narrated that Qutaadah said: Alexander was Dhu’l-Qarnayn and his father was the first of the Caesars, and he was one of the descendants of Saam ibn Nooh (Shem the son of Noah). As for Dhu’l-Qarnayn, he was Alexander son of Philip… ibn Roomi ibn al-Asfar ibn Yaqaz ibn al-‘Ees ibn Ishaaq ibn Ibraaheem al-Khaleel. This is the genealogy of him given by al-Haafiz ibn ‘Asaakir in his Taareekh. (He is known as) the Macedonian, the Greek, the Egyptian, builder of Alexandria, on the events of whose life the Greeks based their calendar. He came much later than the first Alexander. This was approximately three hundred years before the Messiah. The philosopher Aristotle was his minister and he is the one who killed Daar ibn Daar (Darius) and humiliated the kings of Persia and invaded their land. We have drawn attention to him because many people think that they are one and the same and that the one who is mentioned in the Qur’aan is the one whose minister was Aristotle, which has resulted in a lot of mistakes and far-reaching corruption. The former was a righteous believing slave and a just king, and the latter was a mushrik and his minister was a philosopher. There were more than two thousand years between the two, so what comparison can there be between them? They are not alike at all and they have nothing in common, except in the mind of a fool who does not know anything.” 4 – The Christians have no information in their holy book about the second Alexander, let alone the first. All they have is the story of the visions of Daniel, which they claim refer to the rule of this infidel Alexander, and the division of his kingdom after his death. 5 – If we assume that there is a difference between what the Qur’aan says and what their book says about a person or an event, why should that be regarded as strange? There are many such differences, especially in the stories of the Prophets such as Ibraaheem (Abraham), Nooh (Noah), Loot (Lot), Moosa (Moses), Dawood (David) and ‘Eesa (Jesus) (peace be upon them). The Christians have no reliable and continuous chain of narration for this book in which they believe, and they know nothing about those who translated it. Moreover it contains dozens of contradictions which effectively nullify any claim to infallibility or to have been written with inspiration from the Holy Spirit. It is sufficient to note the contradictions in the genealogy of Jesus (peace be upon him)! So how can we take what is in these distorted books as a standard by which to judge the Holy Qur’aan which is preserved by Allaah?!"

Good Deeds Anonymous 05/07/2021 (Fri) 13:35:38 ID: 8987e1 No.212 [Reply]
Good Deeds (Hasanat) These are the words of Almighty God: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٌ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْكَبِيرُ Lo! those who believe and do good works, theirs will be Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the Great Success. (Surah al Buruj 11) On Judgment Day we are all faced with the scale of deeds, wherein our bad deeds will be weighed against the good. Those whose bad deeds outweigh the good face the punishment of Allah. What are good deeds? There are a large variety of good deeds a Muslim can perform for the sake of Allah. Here are only a few examples: >Salah It is the first obligation of the Muslim after the Shahada and such a great thing that it deserves its own thread altogether. >Coming to the mosque Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Whoever goes to the mosque in the morning and evening, then Allah will prepare for him a place in Paradise for every morning and evening. (Sahih Bukhari 631) And he reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

Rewards for our good deeds There is a great deal of reward in this world and the next to be attained through our good works, by Allah's grace. Allah says: مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً ۖ وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَهُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ Whosoever doeth right, whether male or female, and is a believer, him verily we shall quicken with good life, and We shall pay them a recompense in proportion to the best of what they used to do. It is from the mercy and bounty of Almighty Allah that He multiplies our good deeds. Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Every deed of the son of Adam is multiplied from ten to seven hundred times. Allah the Exalted says: Except for fasting, for it is done for my sake and I will reward it. (Sahih Muslim 1151) A good deed is multiplied by Allah from ten like it up to seven hundred. However, a bad deed remains just one bad deed.
>Voluntary fasting (this hadith was cut off) Abu Umamah reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, tell me a deed to do.” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “You must fast, for there is nothing equal to it.” (Sunan al-Nasā’ī 2223)
Monday the 9th of Dhul Hijjah (July 19th) is the day of Arafah. Don't forget to fast in sha Allah! The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was asked about the observance of Saum (fasting) on the day of 'Arafah. He said, "It is an expiation for the sins of the preceding year and the current year." (Narrated by Muslim)

The Mosque Anonymous 05/20/2021 (Thu) 18:59:39 ID: ad8d65 No.219 [Reply]
The Mosque - the House of Allah Among the seven which are granted shade under the Throne of Allah on Judgement Day - the day when there is no shade but His - is the one whose heart is attached to the mosques. This is mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari Book 10, Hadith 54. The mosque is the place in which Salah is performed. The Arabic word "Masjid" stems from the root s-j-d and means "place of prostration (to Allah)". Indeed the prayer in congregation is much better and more valued than prayer by oneself. The reward for it is twenty-seven times greater (Bukhari Book 10, Hadith 46) than praying alone. And it's mentioned in Riyad us Saliheen Book 8, Hadith 81 that one who prays Isha' in congregation is like one who prayed for half of the night, and the one who prays Fajr in congregation is like one who prayed the entire night. And in Sunan Abi Dawud Book 2, Hadith 164 we are informed: "A man's prayer said along with another is purer than his prayer said alone, and his prayer with two men is purer than his prayer with one, but if there are more it is more pleasing to Allah, the Almighty, the Majestic." And the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him said: "Convey glad tidings to those who walk to the mosque in the darkness. For they will be given full light on the Day of Resurrection." (Riyad us Saliheen Book 8, Hadith 68). The mosque is the place in which Jumu'ah is held. On Friday the Imam delivers a Khutbah (sermon) to his community, and the Jumuah congregation is obligatory for Muslim men to attend. The Muslims should bathe before coming to the mosque, then they should come early and sit and listen attentively to this Khutbah and avoid playing, talking, eating or any distractions. The reward for attending Jumu'ah in the proper manner is tremendous. On Friday we should bathe ourselves, use perfume, wear the best clothes and clean our teeth. In Jami'at Tirmidhi Book 4, Hadith 9 we are informed: Aws bin Aws narrated: "Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said to me: Whoever performs Ghusl on Friday, and bathes completely, and goes early, arriving early, gets close and listens and is silent, there will be for him in every step he takes the reward of a year of fasting and standing (in prayer)." And in Sahih al Bukhari Book 11, Hadith 34 we are told that Salman Al-Farsi narrated: "Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Anyone who takes a bath on Friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons (assembled in the mosque for the Friday prayer), and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last Friday will be forgiven." The mosque is the place in which I'tikaf is practiced.

Dajjal has already invaded most (if not all) masajid. That's why you can't make solah without disobeying the Hadith by standing 1 meter away from each other. What a sad state the ummah is in right now, dancing to every tune that Dajjal plays.
>>269 Dajjal has not appeared yet. And there are fatawa saying it's ok to keep distance out of necessity.
>>271 >Dajjal has not appeared yet. Of course not. But he has been released. >And there are fatawa saying it's ok to keep distance out of necessity. A fatwa is a legal opinion, and this fatwa in particular is done through an invalid ijtihad. Why is it invalid? Because an ijtihad can only be done when the ummah is facing an unprecedented situation. Is Covid an unprecedented situation? No, it is not. It is a disease outbreak, and there were disease outbreaks in the time of the Prophet and the Aslaf. The plague of Amwas comes to mind. Did the Prophet or the Aslaf enforce lockdowns and permit social distancing in solah during these plague? No, they did not. Then, we already have an example to follow : The Prophet did not social distance during solah in the times of plague. The Aslaf did not social distance during solah in the times of plague. So what gives us the right to do it? The answer : ignorance and arrogance. We'd rather follow the commands of Dajjal's WHO than the teachings of the Prophet. Reminder that in the times of plague, the Prophet's commands were only : "to not enter or leave a plague-affected area, and if you die to the plague while obeying this command, you die as martyr".

Know Your Enemy Anonymous 05/05/2021 (Wed) 22:32:27 ID: b052c4 No.211 [Reply]
KNOW YOUR ENEMY: SATAN All praise is due to Allah Who warned us against the accursed Satan, the enemy of mankind. إِنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ فَاتَّخِذُوهُ عَدُوًّا ۚ إِنَّمَا يَدْعُو حِزْبَهُ لِيَكُونُوا مِنْ أَصْحَابِ السَّعِيرِ Surely Satan is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy. He only invites his followers to become inmates of the Blaze. (Qur'an 35:6) Jihad ash-Shaytaan (Struggle against Satan) is an individual duty upon the Muslims. We must recognize our enemy to effectively fight him. The struggle begins with knowing the enemy. Shaytaan is the greatest deceiver who wants us to turn away from God and away from guidance. He makes evil deeds seem good and good deeds seem evil. The whispers of Shaytaan are such that one believes them to be his own thoughts, but they are in fact from Shaytaan; they must therefore be actively recognized. They include doubts in the religion, doubts in your deeds, doubts in yourself, evil thoughts about others, and anything encouraging laziness, cowardice or weakness, or sowing enmity between the believers, which he seeks to corrupt the Muslim with. The Muslim should not feel safe from the attacks of Shaytaan, because he himself says: ثُمَّ لَآتِيَنَّهُم مِّن بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ وَعَنْ أَيْمَانِهِمْ وَعَن شَمَائِلِهِمْ ۖ وَلَا تَجِدُ أَكْثَرَهُمْ شَاكِرِينَ "Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful" (Qur'an 7:17) The Shaytaan seeks to distract humanity from God's path through trivial games and diversions, and through wealth and children, and through all manners of temptations. Unfortunately we see that most of humanity has fallen for his false promises.

Jannah Anonymous 05/23/2021 (Sun) 22:15:13 ID: d4c46f No.251 [Reply]
Jannah — Paradise Gardens beneath which rivers flow Just how great is the destination we are striving for? It is impossible for us to imagine the true beauty of Paradise. Here are just a few descriptions from our scriptures: Allah the Almighty says: إِنَّ الْمُتَّقِينَ فِي جَنَّاتٍ وَنَعِيمٍ Lo! those who kept their duty dwell in gardens and delight, فَاكِهِينَ بِمَا آتَاهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ وَوَقَاهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ عَذَابَ الْجَحِيمِ Happy because of what their Lord hath given them, and (because) their Lord hath warded off from them the torment of hell-fire. كُلُوا وَاشْرَبُوا هَنِيئًا بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ (And it is said unto them): Eat and drink in health (as a reward) for what ye used to do, مُتَّكِئِينَ عَلَىٰ سُرُرٍ مَّصْفُوفَةٍ ۖ وَزَوَّجْنَاهُم بِحُورٍ عِينٍ Reclining on ranged couches. And we wed them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes. (at-Tur 17-20)

Repentance & Forgiveness Anonymous 04/26/2021 (Mon) 00:20:09 ID: 7c924b No.210 [Reply]
Let's have a thread discussing the topic of repentance and forgiveness in Islam. Among the 99 names of Allah are Ar Rahman (The Most Merciful); Ar Raheem (The Most Forgiving); Al Ghaffar (The Pardoner). Allah the Almighty says: >But those who committed misdeeds and then repented after them and believed - indeed your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful. (al-A'raf 153) Allah the Almighty says: >As for those who repent, believe, and do good deeds, they are the ones whose evil deeds Allah will change into good deeds. For Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (al-Furqan 25) Allah the Almighty says: >He [Abraham] said: "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?" (al-Hijr 56) Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) having said: >By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if you were not to commit sin, Allah would sweep you out of existence and He would replace (you by) those people who would commit sin and seek forgiveness from Allah, and He would have pardoned them. (Sahih Muslim, Kitab at-Tauba 13)

why do isis and taliban fight each other? why cant they just be friends? what is the theological or quranic argument isis has against the taliban party?
ISIS are takfiri lol what do you expect Taliban are Maturidi (so irredeemably kafir from takfiri perspective) and it is true that in practice they do not fully implement islamic law but a traditional form of tribal law it's not like ISIS themselves observe islamic law anyway but hey any excuse is good to spread chaos in muslim countries I guess

>>>/meta/15187 This looks like it could be something useful for us. I really like the idea that we can broadcast the noble Qur'an through anon.cafe. We can do hadiths or Islamic lectures too, anything that anons may benefit from. What do you think?
They want the BO's blessing, but I'm only human. May the Almighty bless this undertaking.

Can any one provide Quranic reference to Sahada? How did Pre-Hijrat (Pre 622 CE) Muslims embraced Islam, provided revelation (Quran) was not complete back then?
Surah as Saffat verse 35: إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا إِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ "For when it was said unto them, There is no Allah save Allah, they were scornful" One of the first people to embrace Islam was Sayyiduna Abu Bakr as Siddeeq may Allah be pleased with him. The account of his conversion to Islam is as follows: That he returned from a business trip to Yemen and found the people gossiping about Muhammad peace be upon him, that he was claiming to be a prophet. Upon hearing this Abu Bakr came to his house and asked him. When Muhammad explained to him that he was a prophet sent by God, Abu Bakr finally said: مد يدك، فأنا اشهد أن لا إله إلا الله، وأنك رسول الله. ("Stretch out your hand, for I testify that there is no god but God and you are His messenger") Source: taken from the book al Asad al Ghaba (https://www.naasan.net/index.php?page=YWR2aXNvcnk=&op=ZGlzcGxheV9hZHZpc29yeV9kZXRhaWxzX3U=&advisory_id=MzkxMg==&lan=) And Allah knows best
