    Is it ok to believe in certain aspects even though Science says different (OP)


    Is it ok to say "I believe in something from the Sunnah" even though I believe that Science has disproved it? Or to go along with something even though you feel it is wrong?

    Let's take three issues to give you an example of what I mean.

    1. Zam Zam water; in the Quran or sunnah..I am not sure which..it says to drink it, that it is pure..etc. I believe the sunnah says that you must have good intentions about the water when you drink it. You must not think "this water will harm me".

    Now, science has proven that the water has been contaminated by lead..etc BUT... if a believer still drinks it and has belief in what God says, that it will NOT harm them...then it will be safe for them.

    2. Halal slaughter; Science has proven that Halal slaughter gives great pain and suffering to animals(animals here in America are stunned/knocked out so they do not feel the pain), but I must believe in Halal slaughtering. I would not kill an animal myself, I'd buy if I ever had the resources. Currently, there is no halal food around here.

    3. The hardest part about the seerah,for me, is the marriage of Muhammad (peace be upon him) to Aisha. I understand that culture, times..etc are different, people were different 1400 years ago, they matured differently..etc. it's just hard to overlook it because of how I see kids of the same age, today. Especially when in the sunnah Aisha herself talks about playing with dolls and other kids.

    Is it ok to say "Ok...this is a child BUT because it is the prophet (peace be upon him) it is OK". Basically, he gets a pass.

    I am not disputing any of these things or saying any of it is wrong. I am asking, is it ok to say "Ok, science/nature says this is wrong but I am Muslim so I am going to go with it/believe it anyway."

    I am looking for advice, so forgive me if you think I have said something wrong.

    I'm sure you wouldn't be thinking like that if trump had you on his dinner plate and was claiming that you get to be reborn as an evil billionaire a-hole.

    What I mean is animals can't do good deeds, but transforming into a Human is its best deed (provide life to us).

    Sounds like an unislamic justification which doesn't make much rational sense to me. That argument is so ambiguous that it can be used for almost anything, and is not the real reason why people eat animals that are halal for them to eat and therefore does not hold any weight in legal or moral terms.
