Humane Perfection of Prophet Muhammad



Human perfection is one of the attributes of the prophets and messengers, they are the best of creation at all. God chose them from among all of His creation because they are distinguished by the attributes of human perfection. The best of them in morals, the noblest in lineage, they have conscious minds and preponderant
They are the most beautiful people in body and physical strength



Say thou: “I am but a man like you: It is revealed to me by Inspiration, that your Allah is one Allah.” (Al Fussialat, 6)


Two basic characteristics of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) have been mentioned in the Glorious Qur’an which is the obvious and certain endorsement of the Qur’an and also called as nass. One is his Prophethood and the other is his humane aspect. A poet has said:


محمد بشر لا كالبشر


بل هو كالياقوت بين الحجر


Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is a human, but not like others.


Whatever the quality of ruby is in comparison to other jewels, the Prophet (PBUH) is like that among other people.



It is possible to divide the humane aspect of the Prophet into two branches. The first branch is his servitude to his Lord (SWT); and the second one is his relationship with the people around him.


There are almost a thousand miracles demonstrating the Prophethood of the Messenger Muhammad (PBUH). The greatest and eternal one among these miracles is the Qur’an. And his second greatest miracle after the Qur’an is his personality, that is the exalted morality which everybody, for or against, agreed that he climaxed in every kind of good manner and character. In other words, he was at the greatest and unreachable level in all aspects of exalted morality.


Besides he lived by the religion that he brought more than any other person and performed servitude for his creator more than anyone else and shunned away from His prohibitions more than everyone. With this position and attitude, he has been the Apostle and sincere servant of the Lord of the Realms.


We are going to touch upon the humanely sides in his morality in this article rather than the proof of his prophethood.


And yes, it is possible to realize a couple of important points when we take a look at the exalted and lofty morality of our Prophet (PBUH).


• His permance in his morality.


• Combining opposite manners in his personality perfectly without conflicting each other.


• His living by the highest degrees of all the moral characteristics with his will and effort.


Let us briefly explain these points:


HIS PERMANENCE IN HIS EXALTED MORALITY


The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the only person who was able to sustain his lofty and fine morality that he had from beginning to the end. That determination and firmness of hiS is so rooted and essential to him that pre and post prophethood does not make any difference from that viewpoint. It means that how perfect moral values he had during his prophethood, he had them also before being prophet. All the characteristics that he had since his childhood accompanied him till the end of his life, and he encountered with his Lord, Allah (SWT) with them.


There had not been a decrease or deficiency in his good moral and merits, and there had not been fluctuations in practice of these morals in his entire life.


In what degree his integrity, compassion, dignity, modesty, generosity, forgiveness, patience, courage, perseverance and all good characteristics were in the beginning, they were the same at the end. He preserved the same modesty that he had in childhood when he became the leader of the state. Additionally, it is impossible to find different level of practices in the life of Prophet Muhammad like that he was patient one day and more or less the other day, or today he is compassionate and the other day he is ruthless. That stability in feelings and manners showed such an order that it became one of the signs of his prophethood.


COMBINING OPPOSITE MANNERS IN HIS PERSONALITY PERFECTLY AND WITHOUT CONFLICTING EACH OTHER


Actually, the manners of good morality do not contradicting each other, yet it is possible that the highest levels of good manners exist in a person and they do not conflict with each other. When a characteristic dominates, it weakens another characteristic. For example:


• Mildness vs. courage


• Humbleness vs. boldness


• Justice vs. compassion


• Frugality vs. generosity


• Dignity vs. shame


• Affection vs. hate for the sake of Allah


• Forgivingness vs. seeking his rights


• Fatalism vs. working


It is just a pure miracle that all these abovementioned characteristics will combine in the highest level on one person and none of them will dominate and neutralize the other and such kind of a situation has been witnessed only on Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and nobody other than him has shown such a situation.


Imagine that a man is both perfectly frugal and also so generous that he provides everyone’s needs; he is marvellously compassionate and also so just that he never transgresses the rights of anyone; and all these characteristics are extraordinarily harmonious. And so on. Such perfection and harmony was combined by only Allah’s Messenger (PBUH).


HE REACHED THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF ALL GOOD MORALITIES


Allah (SWT) enjoins us the orders such as “Worship! Forgive! Invite people to goodness! Have patience!” in the Glorious Qur’an. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) reports these orders us and this is his mission of being a prophet. After conveying them, together with his companions he starts practising these orders, which constitute his being a human, in other words his being a servant of Allah (SWT). That aspect of Prophet is far beyond of our reaching.


Let us justify that judgement with a couple of examples:


Allah (SWT) has ordered Muslims to spread the message of Islam in the Qur’an. All believers are supposed to carry out that duty and the borders and limits of the invitation are not explicitly mentioned in the Qur’an and it is open-ended. Every believer disseminates his/her faith on his own, but our Prophet spread it with an extraordinary effort and he exhausted himself in such a degree that some verse was revealed on this:


“Surely those who disbelieve, it being alike to them whether you warn them, or do not warn them, will not believe.” (Baqara, 6)


“Perhaps you will kill yourself with grief because they do not believe.” (Shuara, 3)


“Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement.” (Kahf, 6)



How many people are there on the earth that exhaust and worry themselves to lead people into the right direction and Allah (SWT) consoles them?


Not being contented with this, the Prophet (PBUH) invited the people once again to Islam in the Farewell Hajj in last moments of his life and he asked: “Have I invited you?” His companions answered “Yes” and beseeches Allah (SWT): “Bear witness o my Lord! Bear witness o my Lord! Bear witness o my Lord!”


To obey the order of his Lord, what else can anybody do?


Another example is the servitude of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH). As we have indicated above, our Lord (SWT) has ordered us to show our servitude to Him in many verses of the Qur’an. The servitude of Allah’s Messenger (SWT) was in an unreachable level.


Although his all sins are forgiven, his wife Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) said: The worship of the Messenger of Allah was like torrential rain. Which of you can do something like that?”


One day, while he was prostrating he stood very long and Aisha worried that he might have passed away (Although she was accustomed these long prayers).


Another important order of our religion is “to be forgiving”. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had a high degree as he had in another characteristic of good moral.


After he was stoned in Taif the angel Jabrael (PBUH) came and said that if he wished they would destroy the city of Taif. However, the Prophet demanded the people of Taif to be pardoned let alone being castigated.


He has never reprimanded and scolded the archers in the battle of Uhud although they acted against his order, and that attitude was praised in the Qur’an.


It is possible to give many other examples.


Consequently, Allah (SWT) has explained the orders that the believers need to obey in the Qur’an and He has left the method and quantity of the actions to the will of the people. Nobody has reached to the Prophet (PBUH) in performing of these orders and the humanity will be glad if they can get closer his level of morality.


We call the rank of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) that we described above, and he has reached with his humane will, and effort and perfection as “Walayat al Muhammadiya (PBUH)” and all the prayers that he determined with his personal effort as “Tariqat al Muhammadiya (PBUH)”.


May Allah (SWT), who is Most Merciful and Most Compassionate, make us benefit the lofty morality of the Prophet (PBUH).



Ep. 16: "What makes Muhammad's ﷺ message uniquely profound?" | Sh. Mohammad Elshinawy


You simply copied and pasted an entire article... but your only reference materials are the words of a poet? Where in Quran is a "perfect" status of Muhammed listed, as both yourself and the article you pasted have contended?

God spoke in the Qur’an about the great morals and perfection of the Prophet Muhammad


One of the well-known verses of the Quran that praises the Prophet is verse 107 of Surah Anbia that reads:


وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ ‎﴿١٠٧﴾


And indeed, We have sent you [as] a mercy for mankind.3


The Prophet is a mercy for all humanity. Why? He is the final messenger of God who has brought the perfect religion that guarantees the success and fortune of all those who follow it. In addition, the Prophet himself is a mercy for people because we can invoke him and ask him to pray for our forgiveness and grant our wishes. This is not polytheism (shirk) as some people think because the Quran has said that the Prophet can be an intermediary for us who can ask for our forgiveness on behalf of us. The Quran says in this regard:


وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا لِيُطَاعَ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ جَاءُوكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُوا اللَّهَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُوا اللَّهَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا ‎﴿٦٤﴾‏


And We sent down no messenger except [We commanded that] he must be obeyed by God’s permission. When they had wronged themselves then they would have come to you seeking God’s forgiveness and [if] the messenger would have prayed to God for their forgiveness, they would have found God All-Forgiving, All-Merciful.4


This verse confirms the idea that the Prophet can pray to God for our forgiveness. As a result, the Prophet is a source of mercy for all humanity.

Praise of Prophet Muhammad in Surah Ahzab

Surah Ahzab is one of the surahs of the Quran that praises the Noble Prophet in quite a few verses. Let us look into those verses and see how God has honored our dear prophet.

The Prophet Is a Good Example for Believers

God says in verse 21 of Surah Ahzab:


لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا ‎﴿٢١﴾


Indeed, there is a good example for you in [the character of] the Messenger; [and] for those who have hope for God, and the Last Day, and remember God much.5


Prophet Muhammad was a perfect example for all Muslims to follow. He possessed every excellent quality one could ever think of. He was kind, polite, well-mannered, sympathetic, humble, good-tempered, good-natured, and so forth. If anyone wants to emulate an individual’s character, they must emulate the character of the Prophet, according to the Quran.

God Thoroughly Purified the Prophet From Every Evil

One of the famous verses in Surah Ahzab is the second and last part of verse 33. The verse states that God has desired to purify the Prophet and his household with a thorough purification. God says in this verse:


إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا ‎﴿٣٣﴾


O Household of the Messenger! God wills to remove [all kinds of] impurity from you and completely purify you.6


All prophets of God are infallible. They never commit sins or make any mistakes. In fact, if they were to commit sins or errors, how could people trust them that they are genuinely messengers and prophets of God and what they say is actually the revelation of God? However, concerning Prophet Muhammad and his holy household, God purified them uniquely. The above verse praises the Prophet and the Ahlul Bait and states that God purified them because they deserved this purification. That is, they were so pious, righteous, and virtuous that God decided to purify and cleanse them from every evil.

The Prophet is the Seal of the Prophets of God

Another instance where Allah praises the Noble Prophet in Surah Ahzab is verse 40 of this surah:


مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّجَالِكُمْ وَلَٰكِن رَّسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا ‎﴿٤٠﴾


Muhammad is not the father of anyone among you, but he is a messenger of God and the last Prophet, and [you should know that] God knows all things.7


The word khātam literally means seal. In the olden times, people had a ring that they used as a seal at the end of letters. Prophet Muhammad in this verse is likened to a seal that puts an end to all the messengers and prophets of God. Therefore, the verse means that Prophet Muhammad is the final prophet of God and that God will never send a prophet after him. According to narrations, Prophet Muhammad has the highest rank among all prophets thanks to him being the seal of prophets. A seal gives authenticity to a letter and proves that the letter is from that individual himself and not anyone else. This is one of the special privileges of the Noble Prophet.

The Messenger as a Bright and Shining Lamp of Guidance

Two of the verses of the Quran that praise the Prophet are verses 45 and 46 of Surah Ahzab. The verses read:


يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ شَاهِدًا وَمُبَشِّرًا وَنَذِيرًا ‎﴿٤٥﴾‏ وَدَاعِيًا إِلَى اللَّهِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَسِرَاجًا مُّنِيرًا ‎﴿٤٦﴾


O Prophet! Indeed, We have sent you as a witness, a giver of good news and a warner. And [as a messenger] who invites [people] towards God with His permission, and as a shining lamp.8


Some people think the Quran was written or dictated by the Prophet himself. Then why in the world would he address himself in the Quran if he wrote it himself?! Does it make sense for the author of a book to address himself?! Of course not. In the above two verses, God is the one who addresses the Prophet and says how He has sent him as a:


  • witness
  • giver of good news
  • warner
  • inviter to God with His permission
  • shining lamp

As the verse says, the Prophet is like a shining lamp, meaning his brightness guides everyone to the straight path and shines in the darkness, thus helping those who have lost their way to be guided.

Everyone Must Invoke Blessings on the Messenger

In yet another verse of Surah Ahzab, God states:


إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا ‎﴿٥٦﴾


Indeed, God and his angels bless the messenger. O You Who Believe! Bless him [by reciting Salawāt] and be completely submissive to him.9


This is one of the privileges of the Prophet that everyone, including God Himself and the angels, bless the Noble Prophet. Therefore, we as believing and Muslim human beings must also bless the Prophet by reciting the ṣalawāt (صَلَوات):


اللهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّد


O Allah, send blessings on Muhammad and the household of Muhammad.


We learn from this verse of Surah Ahzab that the Noble Prophet has such a high rank that God, the angels, and people send blessings on him.

The Prophet Possesses a Great Character

God praises Prophet Muhammad in verse 4 of Surah Qalam by saying:


وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ ‎﴿٤﴾


And indeed you possess a great character.10


Prophet Muhammad was a perfect human being. He had the best morals one could ever imagine. He himself had said:


إنما بعثت لأتمم مكارم الأخلاق


I have been sent [by God] to perfect good character.11


Our noble prophet was extremely polite, kind, well-mannered, good-tempered, joyful, respectful, patient, humble, modest, and had any good quality one could think of.

Lessons Learnt from the Leadership of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Uniting the Muslim Ummah

So where... in ANYTHING that you have posted from Quran... does it state ANYTHING about Muhammed being perfect? In fact, your own posting of scripture states "O Household of the Messenger! God wills to remove [all kinds of] impurity from you and completely purify you." If Muhammed (or anyone/thing else) were "perfect" they wouldnt need "purification" would they?

"All prophets of God are infallible. They never commit sins or make any mistakes."
You people blaspheme so easily... Islam seems to mean nothing more to you all other than an excuse-machine to justify whatever your whims and desires are... including shirk and innovation of the deen.

"In fact, if they were to commit sins or errors, how could people trust them that they are genuinely messengers and prophets of God and what they say is actually the revelation of God?"
They were the best of peoples, but they were mere mortals. The fact that they DID make mistakes (which are no secret, they are part of theological history) and were able to demonstrate a better way from those mistakes, is what shows they can be trusted... not the ridiculous notion that they were perfect or never erred.

So I will ask you again to post the Quranic text which declares Muhammed to be "perfect" and please, dont post more of your own interpretations as you have done thus far... just post where the Quarn clearly states that Muhammed is perfect.

In addition, the Prophet himself is a mercy for people because we can invoke him and ask him to pray for our forgiveness and grant our wishes.
This is major shirk.
We do not invoke or call upon any human including the Prophets. We call upon Allah alone.
The Prophet himself used to seek forgiveness and mercy for himself. Ponder upon that.

“Say (O Muhammad): “I possess no power over benefit or hurt to myself except as Allaah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghayb (Unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth” (al-A’raaf 7:188)

“Say (O Muhammad blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): ‘I possess no power of benefit or hurt to myself except as Allah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghaib (unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me. I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings unto people who believe”
[al-A‘raaf 7:188]

“Say (O Muhammad blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): ‘I don’t tell you that with me are the treasures of Allah, nor (that) I know the unseen; nor I tell you that I am an angel. I but follow what is revealed to me by inspiration’”
[al-An‘aam 6:50].

“And your Lord said: “Invoke Me [i.e. believe in My Oneness (Islamic Monotheism) and ask Me for anything] I will respond to your (invocation)” (Ghaafir 40:60)

“And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor)” (al-Baqarah 2:186)


All prophets of God are infallible. They never commit sins or make any mistakes. In fact, if they were to commit sins or errors, how could people trust them that they are genuinely messengers and prophets of God and what they say is actually the revelation of God? However, concerning Prophet Muhammad and his holy household, God purified them uniquely. The above verse praises the Prophet and the Ahlul Bait and states that God purified them because they deserved this purification. That is, they were so pious, righteous, and virtuous that God decided to purify and cleanse them from every evil.
1. They were infallible in conveying the message and from major sins.
However the Prophets are people and although they were protected in regards to the major sins they were not infallible in regards to minor sins.

2. The Prophets were not infallible when it came to minor sins and in matters that have nothing to do with conveying the revelation.

"With regard to minor sins, these may be committed by them, or by some of them. Hence the majority of scholars are of the view that they are not infallible when it comes to minor sins. But if they committed such actions they were not left to persist therein, rather Allaah pointed that out to them and they hastened to repent therefrom.

The evidence that they might commit minor sins and that they were not left to persist therein is the verses in which Allaah says of Adam (interpretation of the meaning):

“Thus did Adam disobey his Lord, so he went astray.
Then his Lord chose him, and turned to him with forgiveness, and gave him guidance”
[Ta-Ha 20:121-122]



This indicates that Adam committed sin, but he was not left to persist therein, and he repented to Allaah from that.
And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“He said: ‘This is of Shaytaan’s (Satan’s) doing, verily, he is a plain misleading enemy.
He said: ‘My Lord! Verily, I have wronged myself, so forgive me.’ Then He forgave him. Verily, He is the Oft‑Forgiving, the Most Merciful”
[al-Qasas 28:15-16]



So Moosa (Moses peace be upon him) confessed his sin and sought forgiveness from Allaah after he killed the Egyptian, and Allaah forgave him his sin.
And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“and he [Dawood/David] sought forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down prostrate and turned (to Allaah) in repentance.
So We forgave him that, and verily, for him is a near access to Us, and a good place of (final) return (Paradise)”
[Saad 38:23-24]


Dawood’s (David's) sin was hastening to pass judgement before hearing the case of the second disputant."

(There are other corrections of the minor sins of the Prophets)

I am aware that the Old testament has attributed major sins to the Prophets of God, unfortunately. However, their stories in the bible differ from their stories in the Quran)

Because the writer does not mean
major shirk.





But he says


the idea that the Prophet can pray to God for our forgiveness. As a result, the Prophet is a source of mercy for all humanity.


God alone forgives sins

The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was asking God to forgive the nation of Muhammad

Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him):
Allah's Apostle said:

For every prophet there is one (special invocation (that will not be rejected) with which he appeals (to Allah)
and I want to keep such an invocation for interceding
for my followers in the Hereafter.

Bukhari Volume 8, Book 75, Number 317e


Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him):
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
"There was no prophet among the prophets but was given miracles because of which people had security or had belief, but what I was given was the Divine Inspiration which Allah revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will be more than those of any other prophet on the Day of Resurrection. "
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 379

Also, the writer did not mean the absolute perfection of the prophets, because

The Prophet, mohmmed peace be upon him, is perfect in human perfection, and as for absolute perfection, it is for God alone, and none of his creatures can share in it, no matter who he is, neither a close angel nor a prophet , and all creatures suffer from imperfection.

Human perfection is one of the attributes of the prophets and messengers, they are the best of creation at all. God chose them from among all of His creation because they are distinguished by the attributes of human perfection. The best of them in morals, the noblest in lineage, they have conscious minds and preponderant
They are the most beautiful people in body and physical strength



The Prophet Muhammad,peace be upon him, warned against giving him some attributes of divinity.



Muhammad, like Jesus, never claimed divine status. He called people to worship Almighty Allah alone, and he continually emphasized his humanity. In order to prevent his deification, Prophet Muhammad always said to refer to him as "Allah's slave and messenger". He said – “Do not adulate me as the Christians adulated Jesus son of Mary. I am Allah's slave and messenger.”
And Jesus is the Messenger of God.

I know very well how the Bible describes the prophets


Biblical absurdities about the prophets

the absurdities attributed to the prophets and pious men found in the "holy" bible. As a Muslim, we do not recognize this nonsense. The prophets, peace be upon them, are innocent of this gossip.

When we read the Bible, as Muslims, we come across certain absurdities such as the prophet Lot (as) who allegedly slept with his two daughters under the influence of alcohol ,

or David (as) who would have committed adultery with Uri's wife and would have had her husband killed in order to marry her then,

Aaron (as) who would have made the idol of the golden calf which perverts the sons of Israel, Solomon (as) his polytheistic life because of his wives, etc. May God preserve us from saying such nonsense about the best men who walked this earth.

Now let's see another absurdity attributed to the prophet Noah (as).

The tragic episode of Noah's nudity

We read in Genesis chapter 9, 22-23 this:

“Noah, first a farmer planted a vineyard. He drank of his wine and got drunk, and lay naked in the midst of his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside.But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked.

The first thing that shocks here is seeing the prophet Noah (as) getting drunk to the point of undressing while remaining naked “in the middle of his tent”. Besides this absurdity attributed to this noble prophet,

How can you confirm the existence of life after death?
The Quran teaches that the present life is a trial in preparation for the next realm of our existence. A day will come when the whole universe will be destroyed and recreated, and the dead will be resurrected to stand in judgment before Allah “One day the earth will be changed to a different earth, and so will be the heavens, and (men) will be marshalled forth, before Allah, the One, the Irresistible;” (Quran 14:48)

The Day of Resurrection will be the beginning of another life, one that will be eternal. It is then that every person will be fully compensated by Allah for his or her good and evil deeds.
The explanation that the Quran gives about the necessity of life after death is exactly what the moral consciousness of man demands. If there were no life after death, the very belief in Allah would become meaningless, or even if one believed in Him, it would then be an unjust and indifferent deity, having once created man and no longer being concerned with his fate. Surely, Allah is just. He will punish the tyrants, whose crimes are beyond count - having killed hundreds of innocent people, created great corruption in society, enslaved

numerous persons to serve their own whims, and so on. Because one has a short life span in this world and since numerous individuals are affected by one's actions, adequate punishments and rewards are not possible in this life. The Quran very emphatically states that the Day of Judgment will come and that Allah will decide the fate of each soul.
Each and every human being longs for justice. Even if one does not uphold it for others they want justice for themselves. For example, tyrants and oppressors who are intoxicated by power and influence and inflict pain and suffering on others will object vehemently if any injustice is done to them. The reason such people become insensitive to the suffering of others is that they feel that power and influence prevents others from doing injustice to them.

Any person who has suffered injustice, irrespective of financial or social status, almost certainly wants its perpetrator to be punished. Though a large number of criminals are punished, many of them get off lightly or even scot-free. They may continue to lead pleasant, even luxurious lives and enjoy a peaceful existence. Allah may not punish a criminal in this world but He will surely hold him accountable on the Day of Judgment and punish him

The explanation that the Quran gives about the necessity of life after death is exactly what the moral consciousness of man demands. If there were no life after death, the very belief in Allah would become meaningless, or even if one believed in Him, it would then be an unjust and indifferent deity, having once created man and no longer being concerned with his fate."

"God is endless above and below the universe. There is no place or even the smallest particle that it does not permeate.
God permeates all of the water, land, wood, and stone. Not a single being is without it.
Just as water is in and around water animals, in the same way, this pure God is in and around all living beings.
However, this simile with water is not entirely appropriate, because there are dry places that exist apart from water, while it is not possible that anyone can ever go outside of God.
If one tries to run outside of the sky, it is not possible because the sky is always found in front of us. Similarly, there is no end to the endless God.
But even though it is only God that we meet continuously, it is inseparable from the body, and though it is what is closest to everyone, it is also hidden.
One exists within it but does not know it. One imagines to have understood it, but really the Absolute Reality cannot be understood." -- Dasbodh Chapter: 7,Sub-Chapter: 4

You still refer to Muhammed as "perfect" and desert dingbat likes your post... after she tries to correct your "major shirk"... you people are so lost even a roadmap called Quran cant guide you home. Perhaps because Islam was never your home in the first place.

Y'know, ya try to be a nice guy, but there's always somebody that accuses you of horrible sex crimes and murder. I blame their parents.
ِActually its trolling seeing you reject the God of Abraham, but it pushes the thread back up. Maybe someone will get guided?

Its funny, but those that hope to make Gods path look deviant actually direct people to it. I've seen it myself multiple times. In fact right after 9/11 30,000 Americans accepted Islam. Look it up.

The truth is plenty of people hate Islam, especially here (Especially here). Yet what is the worlds fastest growing religion?

Personally i am tired of arguing religion. There is not a single person here with an open mind, just everyone trying there best to get you to see it there way.

Very apt meme here...
truth.jpg


A friend mentioned to me not to long ago that pigs love to wrestle in waste. How many times can you engage them before you yourself are covered in waste? Its an old quote and since you are the king of quotes for sure you've heard this one before?

Never wrestle with a pig. You just get dirty and the pig enjoys it.

Its not directed at you, but honestly, some of the worst people are here.

Which is kind of amazing seeing our very small fish bowl compared to the ocean that is the world. We have 30 people tops? And odds are half of them are socks.

I'm just tired of all of it, there is no barakah here. Just wasted time that none of us are getting back and a major issue for me now is entertainment and wasted time. I swear its a curse. Every breathe taken is one your never getting back and i waste absolutely massive amounts of precious time..

My apologies for the book, i do admit i talk too much.

My parents arent promoting child sex-trafficking, r*pe and murder with their faulty interpretations of Islam like these people are. But you are joking that the abortion age should be raised to 18 so I see they are in good company with you. I guess your alliance makes them non-Muslims, by their own standards anyway.
