A running theme among the perennialists and secular spirituals is if there are multiple iterations on one issue the issue at hand becomes relative by default. An example would be, given one factor you can argue its moral weight in myriads of ways and come to a different conclusion, morality is relative. A more pertinent... Continue Reading →

Brother Muhammad wrote another fantastic piece mashaallah
Many of you might have heard this argument that if we consider xyz (other than Allah) to be hearing at every place, knowing every matter, controlling every single atom in the universe, and even creating the heavens and the earth, all of that will not be considered Shirk, so long as the belief is that the xyz entity is dependent upon Allah.
A very simplistic version of this argument can be formulated as follows:
1. Allah has knowledge and power.
2. We also have some knowledge and power.
3. Prophets or Angels of have much greater degrees of knowledge and power than us.
4. Therefore, the quantity or degrees of knowledge or power cannot be the differentiation criteria between how Allah’s knowledge or power is understood.
5. The differentiating criteria between divine knowledge/divine power and the knowledge or power of created beings must then be independence.

A great article on the issue of istiqlal.
This is a series of posts analyzing various aspects of Salafism vs Istiqlaalism debate from Deobandi perspective. On this particular issue, the critique is directed against Shaykh Yāsir Qāḍi (YQ), who is considered an advocate of Istiqlaal doctrine alongside others like Shaykh Ḥātim Al-ʿAwnī, and some students of knowledge. Even though, to add this disclaimer, YQ’s understanding on all issues may not corroborate with the stance of others in that camp.
So lets quote the position of Yāsir Qāḍi from his library chat:14 (https://youtu.be/dRtYCJ7bE5I), time stamped around 1:13:00 , where he says the following
” Allah is saying that Quresh understand that there is one God of gods—the Supreme God, now whats the next verse. [Quotes 23(Al-Mu’minoon):91], this is paganism, the quintessential reality of paganism. Every Ilaah has the power to create according to the Quresh. Every Ilaah would be in control of a dominion and doing things in his…

Lex Luthor in the movie Batman v Superman vehemently expresses his frustration regarding God using the age-old argument succinctly described as : the Problem of Evil. It is the concept that If God is all Good he can't be all Powerful and vice versa. This mode of argumentation is an old means of arguing against... Continue Reading →
One tired but consistent effort that the online Christian community engages in while talking about Quran is to use whatever terms they have in store for the bible to designate into Quran. While that wouldn’t have been an issue if Quran and Bible were comparable in their compilation, the two are so widely different that... Continue Reading →
