    I am a muslim. Tawheed is a muslim. That makes it obligatory on me to correct him when i believe he has erred or to discuss with him so we may both arrive at the correct conclusion.

    if i see something i take issue with i will make it known to the individual no matter who it is.

    As for why i posted the link here its because i believe it is just as important if not more important to point out the mistakes done in the name of fighting oppression than it is to point out the glaringly obviously and well publicised crimes of the oppressor.
    I appreciate this post and always invite anyone to give opposing views , without either i or the other turning it into a debate

    Truly disturbing news, that a "black" man was pushed off boarding a train while chelsea fangs sang 'we're racist, we're racist'. It is interesting here to note Muhammed pbuh did not go down the line of trying to hilight the superiority of the 'arab race' to further his own cause or win favours among the 'arabs'. He championed those who were opressed in society, married widows and old, broke oppressive taboo's.

    Do we forget the first caller to prayer and among the highest in rank of the companions was a 'black' man Hazrat Bilal r.a?

    O people, your Lord is one and your father Adam is one. There is no favoritism of an Arab over a foreigner, nor a foreigner over an Arab, and neither red skin over black skin, nor black skin over red skin, except through righteousness. Have I not conveyed the message?

    I wonder, could people justify racism under 'freedom of speech'. Or must we acknowledge, like we jail people for physical acts, the tongue is sharper than the sword, and verbal words have far more devastating effects at times than physical actions, in truly harming the fabric and peace of a society?

    Mashallah this was very inspirational and I'm so happy I came across this post. I took my time reading this as i didn't want it to end. May Allah be pleased with you and give you the highest place in Janaah.

    Salamunalykum,

    All praise belongs to Allah swt, and not myself.

    Part 2 of the debate brother:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    As this is a long post, I shall answer it part by part, separately.

    There are differences indeed. Muhammad had a different agenda. He used stories about Jesus that would have been familiar to Arabs at the time. But obviously he needed to relate them in a way that fitted with his Prophethood. Saying Jesus was son of God did not fit his narrative, so obviously he would omit such a detail.
    We see many stories Muhammed pbuh relates which are not simply familiar to those who were neither jews or christians, but actually works which were also not so well cared for by the idol worshippers, and hence some have even accused muhammed pbuh of copying the bible - not just syriac 'scripts'. We see reference's to the psalms in the Quran, to predictions in the Bible about the coming of Muhammed.

    Again, this is just an assumption made that Muhammed pbuh is not a Prophet of God, a serial lier, and hence wanted to bend things to his will. I will now read further to see if you have qualified why you feel that claim is valid.

    Most Christian scholars believe in what is called the Markan priority, namely that the Gospel of Mark was written first and that the other two synoptic gospels, Luke and Matthew, were copies of Mark. Now I could point out countless differences between Luke and Make, but does that therefore mean that all the scholars are wrong and that Luke didn't copy Mark? Luke did copy a lot from Mark, but also added his own narratives and changed details here and there. But, as Luke had a relatively similar agenda as Mark, the differences were not huge. Muhammad however had a completely different agenda than those who were Christian and therefore he would have to edit the Christian narratives to a greater extent to fit his own agenda.




    Is it not peculiar that the only female mentioned in the whole Quran is Maryam?
    This is not the case, the Quran mentions many other women individually and personally.

    There are also other women given praise in the Quran, and some of these women (Asiyah the wife of Pharoh) are regarded as among the women of paradise. Therefore when we examine the Quran holistically, we see no bias to try and make certain women have an elevated status simply to appease others, because we see instances where Muhammed pbuh could have had no possible benefit to appease anyone, yet still the Quran glorifies the personalities of certain women - because by fact they were virtuous.

    I will only mention a few:

    1. Lady Asiyah(peace on her) the wife of Pharoh:

    Of all of the women in Moses’s life, Pharaoh’s wife is the subject of the greatest amount of exegetical literature and there is a large amount of emphasis on her as an example for the believers.[47] Many think of her as a righteous woman because of her role in keeping Moses alive, as shown in Q 28:9."And the wife of Pharaoh said: (He will be) a consolation for me and for thee. Kill him not. Peradventure he may be of use to us, or we may choose him for a son. And they perceived not."
    — Qur'an, Sura 28 (Al-Qasas), ayat 9[48]

    Additionally, Asiyah is praised because in Q 66: 11, which is dated into the late Medinan period, she prayed to God to build her a house in paradise and save her from her wicked husband Pharaoh.[49]"And Allâh has set forth an example for those who believe; the wife of Fir'aun (Pharaoh), when she said: "My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Paradise, and save me from Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his work, and save me from the people who are Zâlimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers in Allâh)."
    — Qur'an, Sura 66 (At-Tahrim), ayat 11[50]


    The Queen of Sheba (Bilqis)[edit]

    The Qur'an speaks of the Queen of Sheba, also known as Bilqis. The Queen of Sheba is a sovereign ruler over her people who engaged in political negotiations set in the time period of jahiliyya. The story of the Queen of Sheba takes place in Qur'an, surah 27 (Al-Naml): 22-44.
    The hoopoe reported to Solomon of a Queen from Sheba who led her people in pagan rituals worshipping a Sun God instead of Allah.[56]"I found (there) a woman ruling over them and provided with every requisite; and she has a magnificent throne. [Quran 27:23]
    "I found her and her people worshipping the sun besides God: Satan has made their deeds seem pleasing in their eyes, and has kept them away from the Path,- so they receive no guidance,- [Quran 27:24]

    Solomon writes a letter to the queen that the hoopoe delivered to the queen’s palace and left it on her chest while she was sleeping. Then Bilqis prepared presents for Solomon to test him as a prophet (whether he was a “pious” or “worldly” prophet) through a series of riddles.[57] The queen set out to visit Solomon; some say that Solomon magically moved her throne while others say that he wished for the throne and knew he had to acquire it before the queen and her followers submitted to Allah.[58]She said: "Kings, when they enter a country, despoil it, and make the noblest of its people its meanest thus do they behave. [Quran 27:34]
    "But I am going to send him a present, and (wait) to see with what (answer) return (my) ambassadors." [Quran 27:35]
    So when she arrived, she was asked, "Is this thy throne?" She said, "It was just like this; and knowledge was bestowed on us in advance of this, and we have submitted to God (in Islam)." [Quran 27:42]

    The Queen of Sheba submits to God with Solomon.[59]She was asked to enter the lofty Palace: but when she saw it, she thought it was a lake of water, and she (tucked up her skirts), uncovering her legs. He said: "This is but a palace paved smooth with slabs of glass." She said: "O my Lord! I have indeed wronged my soul: I do (now) submit (in Islam), with Solomon, to the Lord of the Worlds." [Quran 27:44]

    And you may see more here:








    Why else is she mentioned other than for the single reason to garner the interest of Christians.
    This is another assumption made, based on your opinion that Muhammed pbuh was a lier, and hence his revelations were not from God but his own words and works. Therefore you have no possible alternative than to levy such accusations against the prophet.


    The inclusion of stories of Jesus and Mary that were familiar to the Arabs and Christians was one of the best ways Muhammad could convert Christians to his new religion. Mary has always been a major icon within Christianity and what better way to appease Christians and win them over that dedicating a Surah to her?
    Muhammed pbuh fundamentally challenged many of the tenants of Christianity. If he wanted to invent a new religion which he could have used to accommodate as many followers as possible, without compromising his own status as a prophet, it brings a plethora of more problems and rational contradictions than it proposes to solve.

    Firstly, the Quran glorifies many of the individuals who the Bible actually brings quite a bad image of. For example, Job in the Bible accuses God, is initially ungrateful, is vile in tounge, whereas Job in the Quran immediately submits to God, is peaceful, is pious and embodies patience. Muhammed pbuh had no need to bring Job to such a status.

    In the Bible, Aaron pbuh is the one who actually makes the Golden Calf, and God accuses both him and Moses pbuh of breaking faith, whereas in the Quran, Aaron had no part in the Idol making, and states that the people were going to kill him and he had no part in what they did. Moses pbuh in the Quran prays for himself and his brother against the transgressors. This is yet another stark difference.

    Lut pbuh in the bible (or Lot) drinks wine and lays with his daughters, whereas in the Quran he is described as one who wards of indecency and of the good.


    In the Bible, Solomon pbuh does not fully devote his heart to God, and disbelieves following certain godesses, whereas solomon (Sulayman pbuh) in the Quran never disbelieves and is chosen and preferred above others, constantly praising his Lord and in thanks.


    I can give you example after example of Prophets of God in the bible committing heinous acts, disobeying God, whilst Prophets in the Quran are actually those who are upright, the best of men, subservient to God which is a far more logical philosophy to have with regards to Prophets. Why would God choose such erroneous people to guide us, who can't even control themselves?

    Far from Muhammed pbuh trying to appease them, he directly attacks claims they made about previous Prophets of God. A lier would simply go a long with some of these erronous stories, make the prophets look bad - because they were thought to have committed these anyway. If i were trying to appease people, i certainly would not overhaul almost all of what they believed. I would overhaul what was necessary and try to make as much similar as possible, yet Muhammed pbuh overhauls so much.

    If i were a Jew or Christian or 'ARAB' familiar with any of the tales of prophets of the past, and Muhammed pbuh told me so much of what i believed of past prophets was wrong, i would say, wait what? You are really telling me to overhaul almost all of my faith and religion? What possible gain could a lier have in trying to make prophets who are 'bad' look 'good' ? You could have left them look bad and hence made a contrast of you and them and made yourself to look so much more superior, yet you preach they were all righteous and preached the same 'essential' core message?

    Far from Muhammed pbuh trying to win favour by glorifying personalities revered by other faiths, in direct contrast, he corrects unjustified attacks on previous prophets (peace be on them), which Christians and Jews themselves had certain negative narratives for. If i intended to appease others, i would not overhaul most of their scripture when really i could have used it to my advantage.






    But let us break down the verses here you deny are related.

    1) Both verses involve Jesus speaking in the cradle
    2) In both verses, Jesus started by announcing who he was, in one case he was the "servant of Allah" and in the other the "Son of God."
    3) Both lay out the reason why he was sent. In one he has been sent for the salvation of the world and in the other he has been made a prophet and given a scripture to deliver.
    4) Both make vague references to Jesus' death. Although the Christological narrative obviously portrays it as means for salvation, whilst the Quranic narrative merely refers to it as a death and a resurrection
    5) In the infancy Gospel, Jesus mentions that the angel Gabriel has spoken to Mary. Islam agrees with this narrative and believes that the angel Jibril was sent to Mary.
    Again,

    You assume:

    1. Because something is not in the canocial corpus, it is a fabricated legend invented later.
    2. Muhammed pbuh is false in his claim that previous scripture was distorted, invented, some we do not even know the authors if they truly were the writers etc.
    3. There is also things contained in the Bible that the Quran has similarities with, do we then say, Muhammed pbuh also copied this? The underlying assumption you seem to make it Muhammed pbuh copied what was available to him and well known to arabs , so why do we see him quite heavily referring to things in the actual bible? If he really was copying only what he heard in 'arabic' (assumption) why refer to texts not even translated into arabic, and works in the canonical corpus?
    4. If we find something similar in the Quran or Bible, or texts representing a group of christians, Muhammed pbuh therefore copied. The Quran makes statements directly about the previous scriptures. You only run into a problem if you believe Muhammed pbuh is not a Prophet of God, and hence lies, so we need to find the possible sources he used to lie, even though he overhauled and corrected so much.


    For instance, Jesus pbuh was known to heal the sick and bring the dead back to life. Because this is contained in the Bible, does this mean Muhammed pbuh copied? If there is a 2nd century reference that he spoke in the cradle, and he by miracle made clay birds into life, does this prove Muhammed pbuh's source had to be that 2nd century work or a later adaption of a 2nd century work, because you do not find it in the canocial bible?

    Let us compare the two statements again:

    Surah 19:29-34:
    So she pointed to him. They said, "How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?" [Jesus] said, "Indeed, I am the servant of Allah . He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah as long as I remain alive And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive." That is Jesus, the son of Mary - the word of truth about which they are in dispute.

    THE ARABIC GOSPEL OF THE INFANCY OF THE SAVIOUR (Verse 2):
    He has said that Jesus spoke, and, indeed, when He was lying in His cradle said to Mary His mother: I am Jesus, the Son of God, the Logos, whom thou hast brought forth, as the Angel Gabriel announced to thee; and my Father has sent me for the salvation of the worldTge

    You assume Muhammed pbuh kept what was in his agenda, and added to what he felt was fit. Why do we not see Muhammed pbuh using Logos? If i were to try and impress a christian, i would say Jesus pbuh is the word of God, because this is also an Islamic belief , he is even referred to directly in other places in the Quran as the 'word'. Why then, did Muhammed decide to remove something from this passage if he were copying it that would so obviously impress christians?

    Additionally, all we see that is similar is that Jesus pbuh spoke from crade. Infact, in Muhammed pbuh's account you see 'they' in the background a 'she' pointing to him. All of this other snippets are not even found. You would expect a copy to also try to copy irrelevant details such as this which would not have hurt their agenda.

    Furthermore, the fact Jesus pbuh speaking in the cradle being found does not prove Muhammed pbuh copied. These works could have been found or transmitted and may have been the portion which retained the truth, despite people obviously distorting it.

    There are other Women mentioned in the Quran and glorified as righteous, and it is therefore not a fair thing to claim Muhammed pbuh only strategically glorified who he wanted, because we see many instances of him glorifying women where he had really no strategical benefit to glorify.

    Mary is also one whom muslims have great admiration for. The concordance of admiration is not evidence for one appeasing the other, because as i have mentioned and elaborated on, holistically, one arguing for Muhammed pbuh copying to appease faces many problems when cross comparing the Bible and Quran, even in the plethora of instances where he didn't really need to to 'win' any hearts.

    Rather than seeing the named women, we must also see what is said about them.

    The debate of 'copying' assumes many, many things and deserves volumes of discussion in itself.


    To add on, the Bible it self is far from painting a rosy picture about Jesus pbuh and Mary pbuh as the Quran is. Jesus pbuh is depicted as being rude to his mother in the Bible.

    Prophet Jesus' Behavior Towards His Mother
    Bible says:
    John 2:3-4
    3When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
    4"Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied, "My time has not yet come."
    Matthew 12:47-49
    47Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you."[a]
    48He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" 49Pointing to his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers.
    Quran says:
    Surah 19:30-32
    He said: "I am indeed a servant of God: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet; "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live; "(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable;


    When charging someone with the accusation of copying, it is as equally important to not only examine what seems similar, but also what was left out and is different.

    My post is not intended to offend christians, but merely to academically discuss issues with them in a manner i hope is equitible and polite, as the Quran says "Invite all to the way of your lord through wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them in ways that are best.."

    It would be a strawman to argue that muslims are against the idea of a triune God simply because the Quran says so. The Quran in several occasions expands upon the oneness of God also.

    Why muslims are against the 'trinity'.

    1. God is not numerical, has no form, can not be divided or undergo change. God being one means in his essence, there can only be 'God'. Something must exist by necessity of it's own existence, or nothing would exist. Material existence is contingent, and there are a plethora of arguments for a immaterial creator not confined to space, limitations, or contingencies. The creator therefore can not quantified by two or three, and therefore is 'one' by the meaning the 'only one'. Can a transcendent, immaterial reality also be a corporal, contingent, physical one? Can God create a rock he can't lift? Can God not become God, are all contradictory baseless questions.

    2. IF God can be confined to a body he ceases to be God by the very arguments that we used to prove his existence.

    3. The idea of Jesus coming to die for our sins was invented. Therefore what was also invented was he must be God or part of God somehow, because only such a great status is enough to absolve for our sins. Islam rejects such a concept. We are all liable for our sins, the Quran tells us that no soul shall bear the burden of another. No-one has died for our sins. With the facets of intelligence, of our own choice and deduction do we pave the path to our own ultimate destiny. Despite this, we will all be , If God wills, judged by the mercy of God, who we declare his mercy daily several times.

    4. Even in the Bible, do you see Jesus pbuh preaching monotheism - even though the bible in itself is corrupted:

    The most important commandment in the entire Bible is that God is not trinity, but one in unique oness.

    "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one". Bible

    The 'Son of God' title is given to other prophets of God too.

    In Exodus 4:22 "Thus saith Jehovah, Israel is my son, even my firstborn." Israel was called God's First Son.
    In Jeremiah 31:9 "I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn."Ephraim is God's First Son and First Born.
    In Psalm 2:7 "....Jehovah had said onto me (David), thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee." David was called God's Begotten Son.


    There is no place where Jesus pbuh himself to my knowledge uses the word trinity.

    You see traces of pure monotheism in the Bible, with corruption ofcourse.


    I will leave you with these hadiths:


    Al Kafi
    H 313, Ch. 16, h 4 – Graded Sahih by Alama Majlisi
    The Imam said, "There is nothing in the universe, but that is subject to annihilation, alteration, change, decay, transition from one color to another, from one shape to another and from one quality to another. They increase, decrease and change from decrease to increase, except He, Who is the Lord of the worlds. He alone is eternal and in one state. He is the first, before every thing and the last eternally.His attributes and names do not change as they do in the case of others. A man at one time is dust, at other time flesh and blood, then turns into decaying bones and finally becomes dust. A piece of date at one time is raw, at another time ripe, mature and then it dries up. With every change, the names and attributes also change. Allah, the Majestic, the Glorious is different from all such things."

    Al Kafi:
    Graded Muwathaq
    He said: I said to Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام: I heard Hisham b. al-Hakam narrate from you that Allah has a body, supported by light, His recognition is necessary and He bestows this [knowledge] upon whom He wills from the creation. So he عليه السلام said: Glorified be He, whom no one knows how He is except Himself. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing. He cannot be limited, nor can He be felt, nor can He be moved, nor can He be comprehended [by sight, nor by] the senses, nor can He be contained in anything, nor does He have a body, nor does He have a form, nor a figure, nor a confine. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 278)

    Salamunalaykum sister,

    I hope this can be of help.

    I don't recommend giving her your work as you have done. Make sure she does not copy it or plagerize, and that the work she produces is of her own.

    Ask her if she understands any of the assignment. If she does , try to find out if there are core concepts she does not understand.

    Look at your work - what are the main concepts of the assignment or project? Perhaps spend time talking to her about the key issues, and the core concepts.

    There are many youtube videos, online resources etc one can use for help.

    In the future, advise them to seek help from a teacher and sort these problems early on!

    I pray for you and hope the best inshAllah.

    Giving her a copy of your work was quite gracious of you (even though you have risked plagiarism) so you have done what you can for now.

    Finish your work first and then help her out. Tell her you're struggling with the assignment yourself so how could you help her? Meanwhile she can ask the teacher and TA's for help (email them or show up during their office hours).

    EDIT:
    For future assignments, you can form a study group with her and others (so you can help each other well in advance).

    Salam bros and sisters, quick q, what should I do in a situation where you have no time, but a student (you don't know too well) is struggling and needs your help. But you don't have time to help. I am in this situation, I want to help her but I need to focus on my work as we've a deadline. What shall I do? I've given her a copy of my work, but she doesn't understand it.
    Wa'alaikum assalaam help her in your spare time by giving her links and stuff, the main concepts you know well tell her to keep practising as that's what helped you most. But let her know that you have a deadline and can't help as much as you would like to and apologise for that.

    nope idk why for me it's the hazelnut that gives it a weird taste
    Whenever I am bored or hungry, I just grab a spoon and the nutella and dig in. It has become a bad habit. I LOVE hazelnut<3 But I hate almonds...

    Any idea what sort of programme? JAVA?

    There are video tutorials on youtube, which are actually useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3u1fu6f8Hto


    Khan Academy also have fantastic tutorials: https://www.khanacademy.org/computin...er-programming


    You only do what you feel is the best you can do within your means and resources. Your intentions also count

    Thank you all very much, it's MATLAB. I will help her as much as I can, do still feel really bad though. i have told her that I would have helped her more if I had time and I am struggling too and we can work together in the next assignment. I hope she doesn't copy my work as I've been working on this assignment for weeks. Audhu Billah

    You guys are amazing, masha Allah. :awesome:
