Re: Did Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab rebel ?

Some people talk very bad about Muhammad ibn Abdulwahhab (rh). They accuse him, that he fought against the ottoman islamic empire and against the caliph , so he was an enemy of the muslims. This is their argument. Is this right? How could one fought against the amir of the muslims, even if the cali...

Re: jokes (keep it clean)

Mahatma Ghandi walked barefoot everywhere, to the point that his feet became quite thick and hard. He also was quite a spiritual person. Even when he was not on a hunger strike, he did not eat much and became quite thin and frail. Furthermore, due to his diet, he had bad breath... He came to be know...

Even though I stay out of these discussions but I wonder: Since Prophet did not do anything unless advised by Allah thru Jibreel, Is it possible that he was not told do the same in Makkah, just wondering Br SBM, AS Actually Aya regarding advice was deliverd during Hajjatul Vida and not at Ghadeer. ...

Re: jokes (keep it clean)

A priest, a minister, and a rabbi are discussing how they divide their congregation's collection between money for personal use and money to be spent for God's work. The priest says, "I draw a circle on the ground, take all the money collected and throw it up in the air. Whatever lands in the circle...

Re: A Good read by Asghar Ali Engineer

Let us not play these silly games. There is a reason why Imamat has been ridiculed and mocked for centuries. It is because of people like you. The evidence that you have presented has been disputed thoroughly. There is no point in rehashing it again. We need new evidence to prove the existence of a...

Re: Who do the Proggies give Zakat to?

So, if my above post is correct, because it is not refuted, then no bohra is paying zakat, progressive or orthodox, as the amount collected has no mention of zakat in it. at the bottom you put a figure, never asked how much is zakat. payer is 100 percent sure that it is the tax to retain an active ...

Re: Who do the Proggies give Zakat to?

I think most people here are confusing zakaat and vajebaat or using them interchangeably. Vajebaat, from vajib, means compulsory or ones duty or responsibility to do / fulfill. As such, zakaat is part of the vajebaat, but does not constitute the total amount of vajebaat. One needs to clearly state o...
