The question about work of Tabhlig (jamat)

    azimimpossibleposted 6 years ago

    ARE THE WORKS AND EFFORTS OF TABHLIG'S AND JAMAT WORTH IN SPREADING THE WORD OF ALLAH AROUND THE GLOBE?MOST OF THE MUSLIMS HAD STARTED FOLLOWING THIS CONCEPT AND IT INCLUDES MANY BIG NAMES.

      I do not know these names but is is my opinon, humbly offered, no.  It would be best not to spread the word of Allah around the world for any reason until someone addresses the many ways Islam enslaves women.

        If Islam oppresses women, why 75% of all the Converts to Islam are women?

      azim, not to be argumentative, but i would beg to differ.  Women that are not allowed to attend school are enslaved.  Women who are forced to walk around with themselves covered from head to toe are enslaved.  Women who are routinely beaten for slight transgressions, who are married off while still children, who have acid thrown in their face for the 'honor' of male relatives are enslaved.  Please, it is entirely within your right to argue that your system of beliefs warrants your behavior, but not within your right to deny its existence.  Especially when all facts point in the opposite direction.  As a woman, I can assure you I would never need, or want, Islam's idea of protection.

        Mam i am a Sister.I am grown and brought up in modern open minded environment.There was no restriction on me to do anything.My relatives sisters they all go to school.No one stops them.If people in certain place stops women in attending school its there personal ideology.Islam had nothing to do with it.
        Women are never forced to cover themselves mam.You can anytime contact me and talk to my sister.If one she says that she wear hijab forcefully i will say leave my faith.Its important to note Islam permits hijab that it head cover.Not tip to toe.What in your view is the ideal dress of women mam.Had you ever seen the getup of nuns in church.They are covered from tip to toe.Should i say it as cruel nature of Christianity.No mam.you are just speaking the facts you see in your country and what your friends say.Consider my point sister.
        thank you

          Well, if you're a woman, then I am mollified, to some extent.  I think if a woman choses to dress that way it is her choice.  I do take exception to anyone telling another person how they will act.  I agree. The muslim people I am acquainted with in America are great people.  I do fear that Islam is, in many ways, unbridled in it's zealotry abroad and that the peaceful muslims of this world do not do enough to speak out against it.  I have no problem with any religion in a multicultural society, that respects the beliefs of another.  Respect for other beliefs is not the message I get from many countries and I would be very sad to see more people forced to deal with the squads of self proclaimed enforcers of the faith. I apologize if this is, in any way, offensive to you. I would just like us all find a way to live together in peace.

        Where women are not allowed to attend schools? You must have got info from CNN, BBC, FOX.....

        Was Mary (PBUH), mother of Jesus (PBUH) ENSLAVED for covering herself? Should i quote BIBLE verses which emphasize about the COVERING of women?

        Married women beaten or acid throwing on their faces? heared from.......CNN, BBC or FOX........? Even if that is TRUE, these people don't represent Islam and don't follow its teachings.


        Are these the rigths Christian women want for themselves?

          just_curiousposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          I have no intent to argue this point. Freedom of choice can have unfortunate consequences. Priests can do some horrible things. Does that mean someone else has the right to declare them an infidel and call for a holy war? I don't, but apparently there are some within Islam that do. I don't speak for all Christian women but, as for me, I reserve the right to make my own mistakes, make my own decisions, and forge my own relationship with what I perceive as My Creator. In peace. You have, in my opinion, the right to do the same. And you are in no way obligated to agree. As long as you do it peacefully.

            Who declared these priests infidels or called for a Holy war? Its your internal matter. The bible even says that fantasizing about a woman is equivalent to adultery and the adultrers should be PUT TO DEATH. So what punishment you think for these Priests if we apply the Biblical law here?

      OK, I'm a little fretted about your printing mistake, but I will get over it.  I know you're a muslim and I'm a Christian.  The problem I see with the Quran is no one has allowed anyone to let it soften with society.  There are some very chauvinistic ideas within the New Testament, but as our civilization has evolved, if you will, we have learned that these statements needed to be seen as being for the generation they were spoken to and we have gradually moved in favor of a more reasonable approach.  Can Islam do that? 

      I don't see Islam evolving and I see that as one of its primary drawbacks.  Mohammed was, I'm sure, a great man to you.  His legacy helped lead later generations to a great empire and an incredibly impressive society in many ways.  But there is a whole lof of stuff in the Quran that is used for violence and no one is trying to get a handle on that. Your religion and mine have had some very bloody periods.  When do you think Islam will leave that behind?

        Oh God, AMAZING. Just_Curious you just accepted in the above comment that the teachings of the bible varies depending upon the time period and you are right because its not 100% the word of God e.g Violent biblical verses INSPIRED Christian crusaders and they under the leadership of Mr. Bush evolved themselves and attacked Iraq and Afghanistan and killed millions of innocents. Not to forget Japan and Vietnam.

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhtwQzj7 … re=related

        NO NO NO, Islam (Submission and surrender to the will of one God) will NEVER ever change itself to any particular period. The Teachings of Quran are ETERNAL. It's for the WHOLE of mankind and for every period and doesn't need to evolve itself at all.

        Beside Muhammad (PBUH) being a GREAT GREAT man to 1.5 billion Muslims, he was a GREAT man in the eyes of non-Muslims too.

        Dr. Jules H. Masserman rightly said:

        "Leaders must fulfill three functions: provide for the well-being of the led, provide a social organization in which people feel relatively secure, provide them with one set of beliefs.
        People like Pasteur and Salk are leaders in the first sense. People like Gandhi and Confucius, on one hand, and Alexander, Caesar and Hitler on the other, are leaders in the second and perhaps the third sense. Jesus and Buddha belong in the third category alone. Perhaps the greatest leader of all times was Muhammad, who combined all three functions. To a lesser degree, Moses did the same."


        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mN__rSN0rI


        Islam doesn't have any bloody periods. I have proved this in one of the other posts. "Let there be no compulsion in religion" is a clear command of Almighty Allah and Muslims have always honoured this command.

          I freely admit that man is fallible and very often interprets things to benefit himself. The Bible is unchanging. We have a very fluid way of interpreting it. I clearly see how this can confound and fret the  nonbeliever when someone attempts to try. He could be right. You could be right. I could be right. I don't understand why anyone is hellbent on trying to insist only they can possibly have the answers. Please do not take this personally, but I consider it quite arrogant.

I am not uncomfortable with the fact that others don't get it. I believe God, in his mercy, allowed for multiple paths to find Him. Just my opinion, doesn't need to be believed by anyone but me.

          Ok. We have a point we agree on. As to the Quran, I have not read it all, as I'm sure you know. People don't need to read another person's idea of the Word of their God to see what effect their beliefs have on society. Is there a great deal of disagreement? Of course. In the final analysis what we believe is more effectively reflected in the ways we live our lives, not in the way we choose to worship. When we attempt to argue our points we just set ourselves up for contention. No one will ever agree on everything.

            Since we Muslims LOVE and RESPECT Jesus (PBUH) & his mother Mary (PBUH) too much as we are taught in Islam, so i want to write a few Quranic verses here about the virgin birth of Jesus (PBUH). As Muslims and Christians both agree over the virgin birth of Jesus (PBUH). That's why i am quoting it.

            The Quranic account of Jesus (PBUH) starts with the conception of Jesus (PBUH) mother, Mary, whose mother, the wife of Imran, vowed to dedicate her child to the service of God in the temple. When Mary became a woman, the Holy Spirit (the Archangel Gabriel) appeared to her as a man bringing her news of a son. We read the following dialogue in the Quran between Mary and the Angel:

            "(And remember O Muhammad) When the angels said: "O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ, Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah.

            "He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. And he shall be (of the company) of the righteous."

            She said: "O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?" He said: "Even so: Allah createth what He willeth: When He hath decreed a plan, He but saith to it, 'Be,' and it is!
              (Quran 3:45-47)


            "Then she brought him to her own folk, carrying him. They said: O Mary! Thou hast come with an amazing thing.

            O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a wicked man nor was thy mother a harlot.

            Then she pointed to him. They said: How can we talk to one who is in the cradle, a young boy?


            He spake (This is the first Miracle of Jesus which is only recorded in the Quran, not in the Bible): Lo! I am the slave of Allah. He hath given me the Scripture and hath appointed me a Prophet,

            And hath made me blessed wheresoever I may be, and hath enjoined upon me prayer and almsgiving so long as I remain alive,

            And (hath made me) dutiful toward her who bore me, and hath not made me arrogant, unblest.

            Peace on me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!
            (Quran 19:27-32)

            WOW what a beautiful Story.

        Huh! Who are SUICIDE Bombers? Do you have any idea about the origin of Suicide bombers? Have you heard the name "Kamikaze"? Were they Muslim suicide bombers?

        I know you might be refering to Hamas members or Taliban or whatever it is......BUT tell me when US with NATO (40 states) throw bombs on innocent civilians, when they see their children getting killed in the FAKE war on terror, when this injustice happens to them, then they avenge the blood of their loved ones and doesn't matter whether its a suicide or anything else, BUT you should keep in mind that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

        So suicide bombers are nothing if compared to US throwing nuclear bombs on Japan or killing innocents by bombing from B-52, F-16's etc etc. Below clip is for you Miss Curious.

          As I previously stated, I do not support wars of any kind. There are atrocities to go all around. But when the powers on both sides refuse to sit at the table I blame them all. I believe the forum had to do with a question concerning the spread of Islam. The conversation so far has reinforced my belief in my original post. I think it best to end it. Peace be upon you both.

            Well i am sure you must have learned this word "Infidel" from western media. We Muslims never use this word at all. We Muslims follow the Glorious Quran for guidance and Quran is very clear when it speaks about Jews and Christians. It says again and again "Ya Ahlal Kitaab" or "O people of the book".

            "O People of the Book (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, and attribute to God nothing except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was only a Messenger of God, and His command that He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and in His Messengers, and do not say: God is a Trinity. Give up this assertion; it would be better for you. God is indeed just One God. Far be it from His glory that He should have a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and in the earth. God is sufficient for a guardian" (Quran 4:171)

            Peace be upon everyone.

      Hilarious. First you state your faith doesn't allow violence and then in the same breath you state quite emphatically the Quran permits violence. Yes, it is a violent religion, based on your words and the Quran. Thanks for making my point. smile

          I think it's much worse to follow a religion that condones any sort of violence.



          You said it. smile

            You are 100% RIGHT. we shouldn't follow any religion or person who CONDONES violence.

            Islam considers all life forms as sacred. However, the sanctity of human life is accorded a special place. The first and the foremost basic right of a human being is the right to live. GLORIOUS Quran says:

            "...if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people." [Quran 5:32]

            The value of human life is so great, that the Quran equates the taking of even one human life unjustly with the killing of all humanity.

            Athiest, STICK to the point and answer my question. Where I said Quran permits violence?

          Why are you still shouting?

          Hilarious, now you equate a discussion to killing others in the name of Allah, whenever one feels compelled to believe they are being attacked. lol

    Islam may not be misogynist but that is going by the book. Books do not have any meaning as long as the tenets in them are not followed.

    Do Muslims follow Korran?

    Or, for that matter, do Christians follow the Bible?

    In fact, all religions are rich in concepts but the followers are all hollow, more interested in form and turning fanatics and forgetting all about substance than be good in God's and man's eyes.
