Vaj, Vaj, Vaj.
Yes, it does work the brain and heart to contemplate that Allah is free of all needs and is eternal, without begining or end, the Most Merciful, but after some thought it should make sense when we contemplate all our surroundings. To think that it came about by chance, all this creation, is just plain silly. There has to be a drive behind it a purpose. And behind it must be an amazing being who is able to design and create it all. Look at a car, how complex it is to make. It all began with an idea, then sketches and then designs and finally manufacture. What about a space craft or a tall building, reemagnificent designs and creations.that is one of the reasons, to be sure.
Now look at the human body. It is a beautiful design and creation and it mustve been design by One Who knows all. Look at the stars and the galaxies, how beautifuly organiszed and designed they are. All these are signs for us, for people of understanding. Tell me Vaj, what is your theory of how the world began.
But there is a universal model which even a 5 year old can follow, one that is practical and you are able to apply it to your real life. That is the prophet, peace be upon him, the best of examples and models.this simply demonstrates your ignorance on this subject. not only are you completely wrong, you are demonstrably wrong on this.
there are a variety of role models that a person can choose. i choose beings which demonstrate the Dharma. you can choose whatever it is that appeals to you.
Love can be a form of worship, in its purest form. Man can love things like money, family, children, wife etc but the love that is worship is pure love which also carries the definition of total submission. To love Allah means to obey Him totally without question and to put all your trust into Him. The prophet said, "None of you will be true beleivers untill Allah and His messenger are dearer to him that his parents, children and all of mankind". The love of Allah and His messenger is total obedience to their commands.nteresting definitions of the word.
i suppose, that if one is worshipping what they love, do you worship your wife or husband? you love them, right?
i think that is a poor definition of the term.
Thats why i said worship has a deep meaning. Yes it is intentional. Do you realise that buddhism is an offshoot of hinuism?since i disagree with this definition of the term, it should be clear why i disag with this assertion. more to the point, perhaps, is that worship is an intentional action, not a by-product, in my view.
In Islam, you should not kill something unless you intend to eat it. It is forbidden to kill for sport.that is correct.
however, you asked about sacrificing meat, which is much different than eating it.
For all bodies. Allah created all the human bodies the same way. Your body needs protein to be strong and healthy. Infact, meat should not be an issue if a religion is true because it is only natural to eat meat.maybe for your body.
What are the require ments for your slaughtering, in whose name is the meat supposed to be slaughtered.nope, we are permitted to consume flesh should it meet certain requirements. rather like the Jewish Kosher Laws and so forth.
i, however, do not consume flesh.
individual monestaries and nunnaries are able to determine these issues for themselves depending on the needs and capacities of its' members.
You are saying that one should blind follow into buddhism without thinking about it.you are not obligated to accept rebirth one way or the other.
Buddha Shakyamunis teachings are not like other beings... we are supposed to test each teaching like a goldsmith tests gold to reveal its impurities.
thus, acceptance of rebirth is predicated on ones own investigation of the teachings.
bring me proof of Heaven.
There are many proofs of heaven. For example, Allah says, "And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that they will have gardens (in paradise) beneath which rivers flow. Whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit therefrom, they will say, "This is what we were provided with before". And it is given to them in likeness. And they will have therein purified spouses, and they will abide therein eternally." Quran 2:25
Also, "And those who beleived and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein by permission of their Lord; and their greeting therein will be, "Peace!" Quran 14:23
But those who reject Allah will not have paradise, they will be left out. FOr example, "The example of those who disbeleive in their Lord is (that) their deeds are like ashes which the wind blows forcefully on a stormy day; they are unable (to keep) from what they earned a (single) thing. That is what is extreme error" Quran 14:18 So you see, anyone who rejects Allah, glory be to him, their works will be like ashes. Do you see the significance in this? Anyone who rejects Allah will have wasted their time on this earth.
Allah continues, "Have you not see (considered) that Allah created the heavens and the earth in truth? If He wills, He can do away with you and produce a new creation. And that is not difficult for Allah" Quran 14:19-20 Nothing is difficult for Allah. Even though we are His best creation, He can wipe us out and create something better. It is not He who needs us, He is free of all needs. It is we who need Him, for He is our Lord and sustainer and creator.
Vaj, be careful of blind following for Allah says in the Quran, "And they will come out (for judgment) before Allah all together, and the weak will say to the arrogant, "Indeed, we were your followers, so can you avail us anything against the punishment of Allah?" They will say, "If Allah had guided us, we would have guided you. It is all the same for us whether we show intolerance or are patient: there is for us no place of escape" Quran 14:21 The weak people will turn to those arrogant people who lead them astray and they will seek their help but there is no help besides the help of Allah. You will turn to this buddha who you follow and seek his help but he will not be able to help you, let alone help himself.
Tell me about those gods who turned to buddha, tell me their names.no, that is not what i'm saying.
Buddhas are not humans.
say it with me... Buddhas are not humans.. Buddhas are not humans...
now... having gotten that out of the way...
yes, the Gods came to Buddha and asked him to turn the Wheel of Dharma for them, as well. moreover, Buddha also went to the Gods on several occassions to teach them different aspects of the Dharma.
it is a bit complicated to explain here... and, not to put too fine a point on it, with your demonstrated inability to understand some of the basics of the view, this probably isn't going to be a productive area of conversation.
Bring me proof of rebirth, even from yuor scriptures.it really depends on what a particular being accepts as proof, yes?
what would you accept as proof?
once you know what you will, let me know, and i'll see if i can satisify your desire.
You say that buddha shakyamuni is not a human. Then what was he?
Awake!Allah offered the trust to the earth, the mountains etc and they did not want the burden of taking on the truth, to worship Him. But man did take the trust. Each and every one of testified that Allah is our Lord even before we were born. When Allah created Adam, peace be upon him, Allah took out all his descendants (ie all humans) from the loins of Adam and said, "Am I not your Lord?" They (we) replied, "Yes we testify to that". Even you Vaj. This is so that you will not be able to show up on the day of Jedugemtn and deny this fact.Define awake. Did he ever walk this earth?
please explain how an inanimate object can intentionally do anything.
talk about anthropormorphism!!
All objects worship Allah by obeying His Laws. The gravity is a Muslim Law, because gravity sumbits itself to Allah. When a leaf falls off a tree, it obeys muslim Laws of gravity. The sun, the moon all obey Allah. Even the shadow. All of creation obeys and worships Allah except a large number from mankind. And that is our purpose in life, to worship Allah and submit to Him.
Who created their mother and father?Who created the sperm and the egg and the womb?
their mother and father.
You say that there is no equal to or superior to a buddha. So are you saying that there are more superior than Allah? Are you saying that buddhas have more knowledge or power or insight than Allah? Can a buddha hear or see?"Disciples," the Buddha said "nowhere between the lowest of hells below and the highest heaven above, nowhere in all the infinite worlds that stretch right and left, is there the equal, much less the superior, of a Buddha. Incalculable is the excellence which springs from obeying the Precepts and from other virtuous conduct."
Vaj you have a free will but Allah knows everything. How you choose to yuor free will will bear consequences. If you submit it to Allah, Allah will be pleased with you.thus, no free will.
The devil is your enemy, he is the exact one which is trying to blind you and get you to close your eyes. He wants you to enter the hell fire by making you follow these deviant ways, will you follow him with your eyes open? He is made of fire, fire you cannot see. He is your enemy. Be warned!as much as i don't believe in Allah, i have an equal amout of disbelief in any sort of "devil" or "satan" or whatever it may be termed
