i left the forum for sometime now cos i realised it is not a fair ground to participate in. u tend to favor some folks views just cos they share similar beliefs with you and then disregard others like me cos i don't resonate at the same tone as you do. i thot dis section was meant for those who call themselves muslims to share their own kind of islam with others, so where did the friction now come from that u had to send me the following message,
Salam alaikum usisky,
You have been going about the forum making some statements that are not only alien to orthodox Islamic creed but also de-Islamizing.
Are you sure you are a Muslim? Are you a Shiite? Pls let's know your ideology as I cannot continue to allow such misinformation as the custodian of the thread. Pls don't mislead people, don't pollute the Islamic ideaology.
To say we should abandon hadith is most criminal. You have uttered other blasphemous statements.
Cc: Lagosboy, Muhsin, Olabowale
firstly; i am no shiite. and my ideology is simple;worshipping God Alone(islam) is what i stand for. i do not idolise the prophets(jesus, muhammad, moses, Abraham e.t.c) or the socalled saints, cos that will constitute shirk(idolatry).
secondly; if u are so sure of what u practice, then there is no need u been afraid of "pollutants" like me. those who u think i am polluting their islamic ideologies, why don't u give them what u feel is the right thing. why are u afraid of what i got to say, after all, u are the one on the right lane. just give what u have and let me give what i've got and let the audience decide for themselves. that's a fair proposition right there!
thirdly; i never said we should abandon the ahadith. it is the Qur'an that commands us not to accept any ahadith outside of it(the Qur'an). so i am just going by Gods words. Why is it that when one repeats what is mentioned in the scriptures ppl tend to term it as blasphemous? is it that we do not believe it is Gods words or what?
today, upholding such fabrications as "Ahadiths and sunna" have lead the "muslims" to become the most agressive and intolerant ppl on earth. infact the worst of ppls. on earth. where do u think ppl like, Bin laden, farouk and the rest get their ideologies from. certainly not from the Qur'an. These traditions are full of absurdities and several illogicalities that promote hatred toward a fellow human being. they were never the sayings or deeds of prophet muhammad. ppl tend to look at the good sides of those traditions forgetting that it also contains several bad sides. the question an intelligent person should ask is; how can the two co-exist at the same time(i.e good and bad).
lastly; Lagosboy did challenge me to a debate and i never turned up. i've got my reasons. i really thot careflully and deeply, wondering why is it that ppl can't see the truth about all the things i speak about. i then thot i should grant him some more time to verify most of the posts i made perhaps he will have a change of heart.
the debate would have been an easy run for me, cos i have done most of my home work long ago, but, i realized there is more to it. the EGO, yes the ego. the egotistic tendency of man makes them blind from the true path in virtually all affairs of this world.
pls pls pls , in the name of God, i want u guys to study the Qur'an earnestly. study it like the book that it is, read it from chapter to chapter in an orderly manner from 1 to 114. If Allah wills he will show the sincere seeker the light they quest for.
Tell me of what u make of the following verses.(3:81, 33:7)
may God continue to guide us aright, and may we have an open heart without biases or prejudices in seeking the truth.
