The blessed Mary (peace be upon her) the mother of Jesus
« Reply #400 on: December 17, 2012, 09:00:23 PM »


The Blessed Saint Mary (Maryam al-Muqaddasa) is a sensational film of the life of Saint Mary, the Virgin mother of Jesus, based on classical Islamic texts. The film begins with the birth of Mary and ends with the birth of Jesus, skilfully recreating the major events which Mary went through as well as that of Prophet Zachariah, Mary's guardian and a righteous Prophet of God.

This two hour presentation is a glorious illustration and depiction of the lofty station held by Mary in Islam, as well as the great stature of Prophet Zacharias.

Science moves forward as we learn more.

Religion only looks backwards.

But who created the laws that allow us to fly?

There are waay too many intricacies that allow us to life on this planet to say it's all a coincidence and there's no "invisible hand" guiding it.

Believing solely in science is blind faith because you're accepting that you can not answer what created the universe and us.

Why would it take a supreme being to allow us to fly?

We simply applied our brains to what we had to work with. Just like other discoveries man has made. God no more gave us the ability to fly than he gave us the ability to invent the wheel. It's a progression of knowledge that allowed that.

Why is Mary given such elevated status in Islam?  Certainly she had a very unique, divine purpose in her life and I can completely understand that station being respected and acknowledged but is she also celebrated?  Worshipped?  Deified?   Catholics somewhat deify and worship Mary.  Never understood that.

Why isn't Joseph given elevated status in Islam?  He was the divinely appointed father of Jesus, but somehow his role is diminished and often not acknowledged.  Why is that?  Yes, his mention in scripture is brief, but he was a divinely-appointed, earthly parent of Jesus Christ.

This is just for my education mind you.

YES! Science is our only HOPE! WHY?> Because it works!

It is FAITH in Science that sees people get on a plane and TRUST that it will FLY  The science behind FLIGHT is based an immutable TRUTHS, LAWS which can be verified over and over and over again.  FAITH should always be backed up by verifiable TRUTH, not something that one just blindly follows because they HOPE for future proof or others have told them too.  To eliminate RELIGION and False beliefs we need to stop Religious Nuts forcing their indoctrination on Children, if you can prevent children being contaminated by the God Botherers from a young age, they may have a chance of growing up to be independent critically thinking adults.  But the Religious perverts can't keep away from the children, they just can't help themselves.

I understand what you're suggesting, but that simply is not what faith is about (at least from a Christian perspective); although, our faith can and is verified through the interaction of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Now, our Muslim brothers don't agree with this notion, but I set aside those competing doctrines for the sake of my post.  

I love the idea of scientific discovery, but I don't perceive those discoveries as steps toward eliminating God....I see it as man drawing closer to God by discovering facets of his creation and the secrets therein...even if it is piecemeal on our part.  Unfortunately the majority of this world doesn't agree with that notion.

So, if we can simply eliminate the choice of religion for children we give them them the honest ability to choose a lifestyle for themselves as they mature?  So, the idea there is the notion of a "blank canvas" for children (leading to critical thinking) and that appropriate "blank canvas" is one that completely excludes religion, but includes everything else as acceptable influences?  Further suggesting that if religion isn't introduced to them as children they will mature into critically thinking adults and obviously recognize the folly of religion and deny it completely like other atheists and agnostics?  So, if we intercede on behalf of children and eliminate a life option early on we give them the ability to make an honest, fully-informed choice for themselves later on?

We do not worship anyone but God. I thought you already understood this from our debates and discussions. However we hold all the prophets and messengers and all the blessed people of God in high esteem. More so than you might, as we see them as the role models to follow, hence why we Muslims are sometimes labeled 'backward' because our goal is to emulate the prophet of GOd (peace be upon him). Mary and Jesus (peace be upon him) are held in high esteem in Islam, hence there is a whole chapter named Mary (pbuh). Mary (pbuh) is a woman chosen out of all and above all womenkind and is the most blessed women.

The difference is we do not worship them. You in particular may not worship Mary (pbuh), but Catholics do and I certainly know that as I went to catholic school. In fact just in my city here we have a church called "Mary the mother of God" church which indeed is blasphemous.

We do not believe in the 'appointed' father of Jesus in the bible. The Joseph we believe in isYusuf (peace be upon him) the son of Jacob/Israel (peace be upon him).

Time Utilization (Excellent Islamic lecture)
« Reply #407 on: December 18, 2012, 10:50:57 AM »


The beginning is a du'a (supplication) in Arabic, but afterwards the speaker speaks in English.

Very powerful lecture and I invite the non-Muslims to watch it too.

As in science is not the only answer. Science is merely a tool to understand the best of what we have discovered in the material sense. Science is definitely not always the answer as it can be riddled with wrong answers. After all people once thought the earth was flat and the center of the universe (for example).

The church, the pope, satanism and illuminati
« Reply #412 on: December 18, 2012, 08:52:04 PM »
I don't really care too much about all the text, but it illustrates a lot of the imagery of the all seeing eye, satanic themes, symbols, etc....

Things that we as Muslims recognize even as symbols of the anti-christ.

As Muhammad (pbuh) said, God is not one eyed, beware of the false anti christ, massih ad-dajjal (the false messiah)



As Jesus (pbuh) will return and destroy the cross (meaning the false Christianity).

Beware of satan and his prphet muhahamed. Look at all the pagan rituals muslims perform. The call to prayer is really satans instructions spreading the words of hate and fear.

Join forces with god against the unholy allah and his cabal.

 200,000 MUSLIMS CONVERT TO CHRISTIANITY
Sheiks, imams, Islamic leaders, ordinary devotees defy death, ostracism

WASHINGTON – It’s not easy to leave Islam in a Muslim country.

It can put one’s freedom and very life at risk.

But thousands are doing it, according to a new book by Jerry Trousdale, director of international ministries for City Team International. In fact, he writes in “Miraculous Movements: How Hundreds of Thousands of Muslims Are Falling in Love With Jesus,” some 200,000 Muslims have converted to Christianity in just the last six years. And they include sheiks, imams, Muslim leaders and ordinary devotees of the faith.

“There is tremendous dissatisfaction and discouragement among the very people who know the Quran the best and who are themselves desperate for assurance in their own religion,” says Trousdale. Sounds like achmutt

City Team has locations in California, Pennsylvania and Oregon and partnerships in 42 countries around the world. Since 1998, the organization has cared for people around the world by training, equipping, mentoring and coaching local leaders to care for those in need in their communities. This includes training 600,000 new Christians who have started over 18,000 new churches in the past seven years.

“We’re starting a whole new thinking about the nature of church,” says Trousdale. “The model of the church that is emerging is so very different from traditional church. Disciple-making movements are reaching entire nations around the world. It’s incredibly exciting to be a part of seeing people’s lives radically changed by the gospel.”

He believes what has been learned from this experience can make anyone more effective at sharing the gospel – wherever they are.


“This book, these people, and the miraculous stories are for real!” exclaims Chip Ingram, senior pastor of Ventura Christian Church. “There is a paradigm shifting movement of God that anyone and everyone committed to making disciples must read and apply.”

Trousdale says he has seen entire mosques converting to Christianity. He tells of two disciple-makers who refused to give up on one town that had martyred five Christians.

Within seven years, there were seven churches in the town.

The book also documents accounts of Muslims discovering Jesus in dreams and visions.

Even if i beleive these conversions, they are probably the muslims who are the poorest in the world, most likely africa, where they got no food/shelter/clothing etc, and some missionary comes to them offering food and shelter to people who will change for anything cause they are so desperate.

Australians HATE ISLAM and their sick perverted ideology, regardless of the spin from the politicians, you can rest assure that Muslims are despised by Aussies just as much as Muslims despise non-muslims.  Aussies are hard to pull the wool over their eyes, Muslims love to practice their sociopathy and deceit on naive cultures, it won't work in Australia.

Ignorant, angry and hate filled as always. You are part of the forces of the devil because Allah is the name of God almighty in Arabic, Eloh, Alah, etc.. in hebrew and aramaic

O mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and good on the earth, and follow not the footsteps of Shaitân (Satan). Verily, he is to you an open enemy. Surah 2:168

Satan is the open enemy to mankind and when we always say:

Audhu Billahi Minashaitanir Rajeem (أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم)

'I seek refuge from the accursed Satan'. This phrase is often recited to ward away evil and before saying bismillahi rahman ar-Raheem before reading the Quran or other activities.

Bismillahi rahman ar-raheem

In the name of God the most merciful the most compassionate.

You are evil and strive to deter people from God almighty and you are the one siding with the forces of evil, the anti christ to come and satan, not us Muslims who strive to be submissive to God almighty and obedient to God almighty.
