Define "respect".

I can respect the fact that people follow Allah, or Yahweh, or Zeus.

Doesn't mean a) I have to agree, b) I can't express my OPINION, or c) that you have to approve my statement.

All that matters is if it violates the TOS of this site.

That said, since I don't believe in the existence of Allah OR Yahweh, I don't see them as near or far.

To stay on topic, what is your belief? Is Allah near...or far?

Please, Don't say anything bad about Allah (respect my religon)

we r not as u think..

You know well and good that the terrorist do what they do because that is what they believe Allah is commanding them to do. Frankly, when you read the Qur'an, the ahadith, the writings (jurisprudence) of Muslims, and history of how they treated those that they rule over (esp. dhimmis) I would say I am inclined to believe they follow the true way of Allah.

You might not be that person but then again you would not be following the way of Allah in truth according to them.

i'm objecting what did u said
This is called defending not terrorist.
i don't know what do u do if someone killed your mother , brother etc...

The big QUESTION for all
WHERE IS MORE WARS IN THE WORLD???

Answer please.

Actually, I did not reveal which part of my anatomy was up for a kiss.

Now...can YOU answer the OP's question? Or are you going to continue to veer the thread off-topic?

I think it's a very valid question. Just as with the christian god, there is an awful lot of loud praying going on...does either deity have a hearing problem? If Allah is omnipresent, why does he demand so much adoration?

If we were talking about a human being, I'd say that person had some deep-seated issues with narcissism.

Still off-topic, I see.

No thank you, I reject Jesus as well. As an agnostic pagan, I believe that if there is any form of deity/higher power, it is found within us all.

Allah is near...

My advice is for all people, they should be read about the right, last religion..because the earliest religions which came from Allah to his messengers were changed and lost many information..
Also, learn more about the messengers especially my prophet (Mohammad).Let me know if there is any question about him , his life ,his faith ,...
Believe me, he is great..

Similar question was asked more than 1400 years ago to the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him by his people

The prophet does not answer from him self but he wait the answer from Allah

Before I tell the answer from Allah I would like to tell you that his people also asked him about many things

They asked him about the soul and the answer came from allah

And they ask you about the soul. Say: The soul is one of the commands of my Lord, and you are not given aught of knowledge but a little.

They asked him about the menstruation and the answer came from allah


And they ask you about menstruation. Say: It is a discomfort; therefore keep aloof from the women during the menstrual discharge and do not go near them until they have become clean; then when they have cleansed themselves, go in to them as Allah has commanded you; surely Allah loves those who turn much (to Him), and He loves those who purify themselves.

They asked him about the mountains and the answer came from allah

And they ask you about the mountains. Say: My Lord will carry them away from the roots.

And when they asked him about Allah is he near or far and the answer came from allah

And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then surely I am very near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me that they may walk in the right way.

Please notice that Allah changed the style of the verse

Allah did not say as the previous verses And they ask you about

No but he said

And when My servants ask you concerning Me

It shows how much Allah loves his servants and care about them and want to help them

Also notice that Allah did not say the word say but he immediately said

then surely I am very near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me,



may allah bless you

thanks moonsun

hi rayneinspain ,

tell me where is backward in this verse NOW ?

All research studies West Medical is a pre-existing in the Koran

Modern science has proved all that is in the Koran and saying Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him

No, I won't read your link...last one I went to spread a virus on my computer.

The status of women during menstruation?

Good grief. SOME women are more emotional than at other times...big deal. SOME women are more tired...SOME women like to eat more chocolate...

Face it, please--many fundamentalist faiths completely freak out over the thought of menstruation, which is a NORMAL PHYSIOLOGICAL STATE. Nothing weird, nothing creepy, nothing 'unclean'.

I've never met a man who thought otherwise, and if I did, they'd get an earfull from me.

I've also never met a physician who thought otherwise, INCLUDING THE TWO MUSLIM PHYSICIANS I'VE HAD.

Again, a reminder...this thread is discussing Allah. Do you believe Allah to be near or far...and why?

My question: why do you think there still exist such demeaning religious views about women in fundamentalist faiths (of which Islam is but one)?
