29:64 "And this worldly life is not but diversion and amusement. And indeed, the home of the Hereafter - that is the [eternal] life, if only they knew."

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread.
Why do you explode?
>>22 we like fireworks
this >>23 is a shitpost, dont take it seriously
>>23 >>24 Understandable, have a nice day
Is this board dead? Also, it'd be nice to have an Islam SIG thread (with Islamic sources instead of secular ones).
>>21 I am a christian myself, but I wanted to ask the people here an question out of curiosity. You all know the division between sunni and shia muslims. All I know is that only the gods differ (muhammed compared to ali). Is there any other underlying things which cause the division?
>>53 Not the gods, Islam only has one God and Muhammad (peace be upon him) was His messenger. The split between Shiites and Sunnis is regarding the successor of Muhammad. The Shiites say 'Ali (may God be pleased with him) should have succeeded him because he was from his family, the Sunnis say that his successor was to be Abu Bakr because he was from the best of the Companions of the Prophet (may God be pleased with them).
>>21 How do you feel about the Hagia Sophia? As a Christian, I don't really get bothered much by it, especially given that it's still working as a Museum for the most part and none of the items within are being destroyed.
>>55 >none of the items within are being destroyed. They already were when they invaded it
>>55 I think they could have kept it as a museum since there's already the Blue Mosque nearby.
>>56 *bought it
>>55 It's nice to see Turkey take steps away from secularism, it gives me hope that perhaps the glory of Islam can be brought back once more.
>>55 I am personally against it. Hagia Sophia and Constantinople is the spiritual capital of Christianity, just as Masjid al-Ḥarām is the spiritual capital of Islam. There is no purpose for converting it to a masjid, aside from earning the ire of Christians. The wise choice is to give it back to the Orthodox Christians as a peace offering. Also, reminder that Turkey is a NATO member state, and NATO is under Israel. Converting Hagia Sophia into a masjid has a far more sinister underlying agenda.
>>75 There's never gonna be peace, no matter how much we concede. Appeasement doesn't work. There is nothing wrong with converting it back into a mosque, since to my knowledge nothing in Qur'an and Sunnah forbids that. Remember the Kaabah itself used to be a place of worship for the polytheists.
>>76 >There's never gonna be peace, no matter how much we concede. <...and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, "We are Christians."... [ Surah Al-Mai'dah - Ayah 82 ] >There is nothing wrong with converting it back into a mosque, since to my knowledge nothing in Qur'an and Sunnah forbids that. <...And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned... - [ Surah Al-Haj - Ayah 40 ] Also Umar Al-Khattab prayed outside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre even after the priest invited him to pray inside. He did that to preserve the church as a Christian site. It is obvious that your knowledge is lacking, but still you had the gall of talking about something you're ignorant about. This is what's wrong with the ummah nowadays. A bunch of ignorant children playing scholars.
>>77 Salam alaykum. Brother, there are hundreds of mosques around the world which were previously churches. Do you suggest we must turn them back into churches? If so, are we gonna get the Great Mosque of Córdoba back too, or is it only a problem when we do it? The places of worship of non-Muslims are protected if there is a contract between Muslims and non-Muslims, that is to say, they are dhimmis. Constantinople was conquered, and thus the Muslims had the right to turn Hagia Sofia into a mosque. >[22:38-41] Assuredly Allah defends those who have believed for He does not like any treacherous, ungrateful wretch at all. Permission (to fight) has been granted to those against whom war has been waged because they have been treated unjustly, and Allah is certainly able to help them. These are the people who have been expelled unjustly from their homes only for the reason that they said, "Our Lord is Allah." Had Allah not repelled one people by means of another people, monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is often mentioned, would have been demolished. Allah will surely help those people who help Him: Allah is indeed All-Powerful, All-Mighty. These are the people who, if We give them power in the land, will establish Salat, pay the Zakat dues, enjoin what is right and forbid what is evil, and the final decision of all affairs is in the hand of Allah. How are these verses a proof against converting a church into a mosque? They describe the principle that Allah Ta'ala checks one people by the means of another and doesn't let one group have power forever. Allah speaks of monasteries, churches, synagoges and mosques being 'demolished' (هدمت) so that acts of worship don't take place there anymore. But the Hagia Sofia hasn't been demolished, has it. You can still go there and visit it, even as a non-Muslim. >It is obvious that your knowledge is lacking, but still you had the gall of talking about something you're ignorant about. This is what's wrong with the ummah nowadays. A bunch of ignorant children playing scholars. Do you speak like that to everyone you differ with? Maybe what's wrong is rather people who can't disagree without insulting.
>>78 >there are hundreds of mosques around the world which were previously churches. Do you suggest we must turn them back into churches? No, just the Hagia Sophia, because Hagia Sophia to Christians is like Masjid Al-Haram to Muslims. Also, the conversion doesn't benefit the ummah at all. It was clearly done to piss people off. Likely ordered by their Zionist masters, since Turkey is a member of NATO, and NATO is under Israel. >Maybe what's wrong is rather people who can't disagree without insulting. How was that an insult?
So, once you enter Jannah, can you visit Jahannam? I want to gloat at the evildoers who did nothing but stepped on others while they were alive. Or is gloating not allowed? That would suck.
Any resources for newly converted muslims? Are drawing and music haram? What are the main differences between sunni and shia? Is being Sufi kufr?
>>79 Salam Alaykum ya akhi. >>95 Only Allah knows what will await the righteous believers in Paradise. There are some verses in the Qur'an which suggest that the people of Jannah and Jahannam can talk to each other (7:44, 7:50, and others). I doubt that you would want to actually go to Jahannam, for whatever reason, once you are in Jannah (or indeed any time ever). Also the people therein are already suffering the perfect punishment by Allah, may He be exalted. >>102 Praise be to Allah for granting you guidance and turning your heart towards His religion! First of all, welcome to Islam. >Any resources for newly converted muslims? The most important pillar of Islam after the Shahada is the Salah (prayer). Here is a guide how to perform it: https://www.wikihow.com/Pray-in-Islam Read Qur'an online: https://quran.com/ Read Hadiths online: https://sunnah.com/ Find prayer times, nearby mosques, Qibla (the direction of prayer) and more: https://muslimassistant.com/en >Are drawing and music haram? There are Hadiths which indicate that drawing pictures of animate beings, with details such as eyes, is forbidden and that angels do not enter a house in which such pictures are present. >Narrated `Aisha: The Prophet (ﷺ) entered upon me while there was a curtain having pictures (of animals) in the house. His face got red with anger, and then he got hold of the curtain and tore it into pieces. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Such people as paint these pictures will receive the severest punishment on the Day of Resurrection." [Sahih al-Bukhari 6109] >It was narrated that Abu Talhah said: "The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "The angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture." [Sunan an-Nasa'i 4282] And there are Hadiths which indicate that musical instruments are forbidden. >Narrated Abu 'Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash'ari: that he heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. [Sahih al-Bukhari 5590] >What are the main differences between sunni and shia? The main difference is that the Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamaa'a (Sunni Muslims) recognize the legitimacy of the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs (Rashidun Caliphs), who were Abu Bakr, Omar ibn al Khattab, Uthman ibn Affan, and 'Ali (may Allah be pleased with them). These four were the closest companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) during his lifetime. The Shiites claim that Abu Bakr, Omar and Uthman (may Allah be pleased with them) were usurpers and they say that 'Ali should have gotten the position of Caliph after the death of the Prophet (ﷺ). >Is being Sufi kufr? Sufism is considered to be a form of bid'ah (innovation) because some Sufi practices and beliefs have no basis on Qur'an and Sunnah. Some of them constitute kufr and some of them do not. And Allah the Almighty knows best. May Allah grant you and me steadfastness and strengthen our faith.
