    Lost faith (OP)


    Hi all. I am or was a Muslim but slowly and slowly feel like losing my faith. Why? How come Allah will send some people to heaven just cause of kalimah but a Jew or a Christian or atheist who spent their entire life in suffering to help others will go to hell?
    Doesn't make sense

    As far as people of fitrah are concerned they might be among believers provided that they followed the religion of any past prophet and didn't commit shirk.

    But after the advent of prophethood it's not applied to those who are unaware of Islam as we've no evidence of them being exempted from hellfire.
    Its good that you cant believe it because that means that you still have the ability for sound reasoning and logic ... even general remorse as well as love for the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
    I never claimed that the people of makka are people of heaven. I am only suggesting that they will have a different judgement/judging PROCESS than you and i. Becuase they didnt get a chance to hear about islam like you and i did. And thats why their condition is different and should have a different judging process. Like wise the infant or mentally handy cap person will be judged with a different process than us. Because their conditions were different! Unlike us were we are presented with the true islam, given the ability to comprehend that message and given the ability to accept it or not!

    Think of it like this. A robot designer designs 1000 different types of robots. Each with different levels of intelligence, capabilities, tools, specs and what not. The designer decides to make a test for them and see which one will complete the test ... those who fail are considered unworthy of keeping and those who pass will get to stay. The test was done and finished.
    Some of these robots had all that it took to pass this test and more but didnt try hard enough or were too arrogant.
    Others barely made it.
    Others didnt have what it takes to complete one part of the test and resulted in them not being able to continue with the rest of the test and ended up failing
    Others were not even informed about the test and never attended it.
    Now tell me, is it fair for the design to decommission all those who didnt pass as punishment, even though the designer was the one who made them that way and causes all their mishaps? Ofc not!
    That is why these robots should be given another test to see if they will be worthy of keeping or for decommissioning.

    Similarly, the humans who didnt get a chance to know about islam correctly will be given a second chance to prove themselves infront of god. I am not suggesting that they will automatically go to heaven! there is a difference between being given a second chance and being given paradise without proof of their worthiness.

    Lastly. You are still thinking through a black or white mentality. No brother, even after islam came, some people will still not have heard of islam like the people in North Korea (Even the internet itself is illegal over there) and isolated tribes in africa. Allah will not judge them like he will judge us. He will give them a different trial completely. Again ... i am not suggesting they will go to heaven, i am saying that they will be given another test to assess their imaan. If you think that Allah will not do this then by definition, your version of Allah is an unjust God and i do not believe in that, Because i believe in what Allah said about himself in (Quran 8:51)

    ... and Allah is not ever unjust to His servants.

    As for the Prophets parents, they will must be even a second chance as well ... whether they will pass this test or fail is a completely different story. So im not suggesting that the scholars and hadith is wrong, just that they will be given a second chance at proving themselves to Allah AWJ. Hope things are clear now and you understand what i was trying to say.

    Re: Lost faith

    @ChosenTCO:

    You're fearlessly delving in this issue without any evidence from Quran and sunnah.

    And you are driving an unprecedented ruling in Islam without any evidence from Quran and sunnah; and for the sake of fallacious reasoning, you are assuming that if another chance is not given to them it's more likely be an ''injustice''.
    How bold you are to think that Allah swt may be unjust if they are not given another chance..?

    (May Allah swt give you hidaya)

    What kind of another chance be given to them to prove their iman when all the human beings including them will be experiencing the truth...?

    Iman is related to believing in unseen. After seeing the truth iman isn't accepted.

    Then what kind of second chance you are demanding for them..?


    May Allah swt not ask them for not using their brain and reasoning power to know their creator..?

    You passed a statement to the OP concerning the original question and i did as well.
    You misinterpreted what i said and disagreed and i clarified.
    You asked for proof and i gave you a few Ayaat + Videos + Link that holds much more proof that i know of (specifically the problem regarding the Prophet's Parents (Peace and blessings be upon them all) ... And if you dont know which link i am referring to, it is this one => http://ahlussunnahwaljamah.blogspot.ae/2008/03/another-lie-of-islamqa.html <= )

    Now are you suggesting that this is not good enough of proof for you? or have you not actually opened the link and read through it? If i had to guess, id say that based on your response time to the post that actually contained the link, you didnt open the link ... but im willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume its because you havent seen it or something, so thats why i highlighted it in green above.

    And if it is because the link does not open with your ISP, i will copy past the text here and highlight it in dark blue so that you know where it starts and ends.

    Lastly ... there are many examples of people who did not follow a specific religion like islam and what not, but though just because they felt fitrah and monotheism they were considered worthy of paradise. Example, Ahl Al Kahf and Asiya. Both had no knowledge of islam because they came prior to it, but they had fitrah of taweed and that was enough to earn them Jannah. In this very day and age, there are people who still never heard of islam and know nothing of it. What your inferring is that even if these people had fitrah but did not follow islam, they will go to hell fire ... and that is what is wrong with your post (i say post because i dont know if that is what you actually believe or was it just the way you said it that makes your post look like you have the wrong idea). ... anyways here is the text of the link i sent ...

    The part which was highlighted by me in the wahabi answer was this

    Al-Suyooti (may Allaah have mercy on him) was of the view that the parents of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) will be saved (from Hell), and that Allaah brought them back to life after they had died and they believed in him.

    Did Imam Suyuti (Rh) used this daleel( evidence) in his answer?

    Read here and see it your self


    The Prophet's Parents Are Saved (1)


    This writing concerns the question of the ruling (hukm) that the father and mother of the Prophet are (believed to be) saved and not in Hellfire. This has been declared by the majority of the scholars, and in reaching that declaration they have several methods (masālik).

    Imam Suyuti's Fatwa Concerning The Prophet's Parents Being In Paradise

    From His Book Entitled: "Methods Of Those With Pure Belief Concerning The Parents Of The Prophet" (Masalik al-Hunafa' fi walidayy al-Mustafa)


    FIRST

    His parents died before he was sent as Prophet, and there is no punishment for them as
    “We never punish until We send a messenger (and they reject him)” (17:15). Our
    Ash`ari Imams of those in kalam, usul, and Shafi`i fiqh agree on the statement that one
    who dies while da’wa has not reached him, dies saved. This has been defined by Imam Shafi`i . . . and some of the fuqaha’ have explained that the reason is that that person is on fitra (primordial disposition), and has not stubbornly refused nor rejected any Messenger.

    That is the position of our Shaykh, Shaykh al-Islam Sharafuddin al-Munawi, as I received it. He was once asked whether the Prophet’s father was in the fire and he groaned loudly at the questioner. The latter insisted: “Is his Islam established?” and he answered that he
    died in fitra and quoted the verse.

    It is the position of Ahl al-Sunnah and it was opposed by the Mu`tazila and those who follow them among those who say that one is condemned because Allah is known rationally.

    It is also the position of Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani who said,
    The (proper) conjecture (zann) concerning his parents, meaning also all those who
    died before his Messengership, is that they shall obey (his call) at the time of their
    examination (in the grave), as a gift (from Allah) to please him.

    This method is based on the following sources:


    [Evidence from the Qur’an]

    • The aforementioned verse. (17:15)

    • The verse, “Your Lord does not unjustly (bi zulm) destroy the townships

    while their people are unconscious (of the wrong they do)” (6:131). Al-
    Zarkashi adduced it to illustrate the rule (qa`ida) that one thanks Allah through
    hearing (about Him), not through rational induction. (2)
    • The verse, “Otherwise . . . they might say, Our Lord! Why sentest Thou no
    messenger unto us, that we might have followed Thy revelations and be
    among the believers?” (28:47) Adduced by Zarkashi and Ibn Abi Hatim in their
    tafsirs. The latter adds the Hadith, “Those who die in fitra will say, My Lord, no
    book nor messenger reached me, and he recited this verse.” (Bukhari and
    Muslim)

    • The verse, “And if We had destroyed them with some punishment before it
    [your coming], they would assuredly have said: Our Lord! If only Thou
    hadst sent unto us a messenger, so that we might have followed . . .”
    (20:134)

    • “And never did thy Lord destroy the townships, till He had raised up in
    their mother-town a Messenger reciting unto them Our revelations. And
    never did We destroy the townships unless the folks thereof were evildoers”
    (28:59). Ibn Abi Hatim quotes Ibn `Abbas’s and Qatada’s explanations
    that it refers to the people of Mecca, who were condemned only after the
    Prophet was sent to them and they denied him.

    • “Lest ye should say, the Scripture was only revealed to two sects before us,
    and we in sooth were unaware of what they read” (6:156).

    • “And We destroyed no townships but it had its warners for reminder, for
    We never were oppressors” (26:208-209). `Abd ibn Hamid, Ibn al-Mundhir,
    and Ibn Abi Hatim quote Qatada in their tafsirs to the effect that revelation,
    proof, and exhortation must precede condemnation.

    • “And they cry for help there, (saying), Our Lord! Release us; we will do
    right, not (the wrong) that we used to do. Did not We grant you a life long
    enough for him who reflected to reflect therein? And the warner came unto
    you” (35:37). The commentators said, “The warner is the Prophet .”


    [Evidence from the Hadith]

    Hadith Concerning the Examination of the People of fitra [Primordial Disposition] on the Day of
    Resurrection and the Entry into Paradise of Those Who Obey and the Entry into the Fire of Those Who Disobey:

    Ahmad, Ibn Rahawayh, Ibn Mardawayh, and Bayhaqi (al-I`tiqad `ala madhhab al-salaf ahl alsunnah wa-l-jama`ah) who said, sahih through Aswad ibn Sari’. The Prophet said,
    Four will present excuses on the Day of Resurrection: The deaf one, the idiot, the
    senile old man, and the one who died in fitra. The first will say, I didn’t hear
    anything; the second, Islam came and street-children were throwing dung at me; the
    third, Islam came and I did not have my wits about me, and the fourth, my Lord, no
    Messenger came to me. Allah will Himself take their covenant to obey Him. They
    will be told to enter the fire (as a test). Those who obey will find it cool and safe,
    while those who refuse will be dragged to it. (Aswad, Abu Hurayra)

    Al-Bazzar and Tirmidhi who correctly graded it hasan: The Prophet said,
    The one who died in fitra, the imbecile, and the infant will say respectively: No
    Book or Messenger reached me; You gave me no mind wherewith to understand
    good or evil; I did not have a chance to do anything. A fire will be presented to
    them and they will be told to enter it. Those who would have done well in life will
    obey and enter it (temporarily) while those who would have disobeyed in life will
    refuse. Allah will tell them, You disobey Me (seeing Me), so how could you obey My
    Messengers in My absence? (Abu Sa`id al-Khudri)

    Al-Bazzar and Abu Ya’la: same as above with the addition of the senile old man. Those
    who obey and enter the fire will go across it speedily. (Anas)

    `Abdul Razzaq, Ibn Jarir, Ibn al-Mundhir, Ibn Hatim, with an authentic chain that meets
    the criteria of Bukhari and Muslim: The Prophet said,
    “The one who died in fitra, the idiot, the deaf, the mute, and the senile will be
    sent a messenger (at that time) who will say, Enter the fire. They will argue
    and say: How can it be when no messenger reached us? But woe to them! If
    they had entered it they would have found it cool and safe. Whoever accepts
    and obeys will enter it.” Abu Hurayra added, Read, “We never punish until
    We send a messenger” (17:15).”

    Al-Bazzar and Hakim, who graded it sahih by the criteria of Bukhari and Muslim: The
    Prophet said,
    The people of Jahiliyya will come on the Day of Judgment carrying their idols on
    their backs. Allah will question them and they will say: Our Lord, You did not send
    us a Messenger and nothing from You reached us. If you had sent us one, we would
    have been your most obedient servants. Allah will say, Shall I test your obedience?
    And He will tell them to enter the fire and stay in it. They will enter it and return
    again, in fear of its fury and exhalations, and they will say, Our Lord, protect us
    from it. He will say: Didn’t you promise to obey Me if I ordered you something?
    They will pledge again and enter it, only to come back and plead again. The Prophet
    said, Had they stayed in it the first time, they would have found it cool and safe.
    (Thawban)


    Tabarani and Abu Nu’aym: The Prophet said,
    The imbecile will come on the Day of Judgment together with the one who died in
    fitra and the infant etc. (same as (e)) They will keep coming back although the fire
    would not have hurt them, and Allah will say, I knew your actions from afore, so
    take them (O Fire). (3)

    Comment of Tabari,

    Know that the Ahl al-Sunnah have one and all agreed on the fact that there is no
    knowledge of rulings except on the basis of revealed Law as opposed to the
    productions of the mind, while opponents of the truth such as the Rafidah
    [Rejecters of the legitimacy of the first three Caliphs], the Karramiyyah
    [anthropomorphists], the Mu`tazila [rationalists] and others consider that the
    derivation of rulings have different bases, some revealed, some based on pure
    reasoning. As for us [Ahl al-Sunnah], we say that nothing is ruled as obligatory before
    the coming of a Prophet .

    Imam Fakhruddin Razi said in the Mahsul,

    To be thankful to the One Creator is not a mind-based obligation, contrary to what
    the Mu`tazila say. If it were, those who leave that action before a Prophet is sent
    to them would be punished, which is not the case [citing 17:15].
    Similarly, those of his school [i.e. kalam] as well as Baydawi and Tajuddin Subki said,
    We believe that those whom da`wa did not reach die saved, and that while
    alive they are not fought against until they reject a clear call, and that they
    enjoy protection in their life and possessions, etc.

    Now this method of ruling (exemption from punishment), does it apply to all the people
    of the Jahiliyya? No, rather it applies specifically to those who have never been reached by
    the call of a previous Prophet . As for those who have been reached and who have
    rejected that previous Prophet , no one disputes that they are definitely (ruled to be) in
    the fire.

    The noble parents (of the Prophet ), from what has been known of them, belong to the
    former group according to our belief.

    No call reached them, because the previous Prophet came about six hundred years
    earlier, and of the rare divines (ahbar) of the People of the Book who still knew the
    (original) prophetic dispensations and called people to the religion, a tiny remnant were
    left dispersed here and there between Sham and other places.

    They apparently travelled little and lived brief lives: eighteen years for `Abdullah who
    died in Medina, and nearly the same for the reclusive Amina, according to the hafiz al-
    `Ala’i in his book, al-durra al-saniyya fi mawlid sayyid al-bariyya (The pristine pearl: the birth
    of the Master of Creatures).

    They knew no better than the majority of the people of Mecca, whose ignorance even of
    the fact that Allah sends prophets is shown in the verses, “Does Allah send a human
    Messenger?” (17:94) and “They said, if our Lord wished, He would have sent
    angels; we never heard the like from our forefathers” (23:24).

    Imam ‘Izzuddin ibn `Abdul Salam said (in al-Amali),

    Every Prophet was sent to his own particular people except ours, which means that
    every people not previously sent to, is of the fitra, except the descendants of a
    Prophet that are born in other nations [e.g. the descendants of Ibrahim leading to
    Shu`ayb], because his Law addresses them as well. But if the previous dispensation
    becomes obliterated, then all people become people of the fitra.” This is categorical
    proof that the noble parents are without doubt of the fitra, because they are neither
    descendants of ‘Isa nor of his nation.

    We now turn to further proofs from the Hadith. Ibn Hajar’s statement that the correct conjecture is that the Prophet’s entire family will obey when asked on Judgment Day is inferred from these sources:
    The Hadith related by al-Hakim in the Mustadrak from Ibn Mas`ud and graded authentic,
    that:
    A young man of the Ansar who asked a lot of questions once asked the Prophet ,
    “Are your parents in the Fire?” To which the Prophet answered, “My Lord
    promised to give me what I ask concerning them, and on that day I shall stand at
    the Praiseworthy Station (of chief intercessor).”

    The Hadith cited by Ibn Jarir al-Tabari from Ibn `Abbas to the effect that the verse
    “And your Lord shall give you so that you will be pleased” (93:5) alludes to the
    Prophet’s pleasure that none of his family enter the fire.

    The Hadith of Abu Sa`id in Sharaf al-nubuwwa, Tabari (Dhakha’ir al-‘Uqba), and al-Mulla in
    his Sira from ‘Umran ibn Husayn:

    The Prophet said, “I asked my Lord that He not enter any of my family
    into the fire and it was granted me.”

    Tamim al-Dari in the Fawa’id with a weak isnad from Ibn `Umar:

    The Prophet said, “On the Day of Judgment I shall intercede for my father and
    mother, my uncle Abu Talib, and a [milk-]brother of mine from the Jahiliyya.”
    Tabari said, If established, then it is understood in the light of the authentic Hadiths
    concerning Abu Talib [i.e. that he is in a shallow fire = Bukhari and Muslim]. Tabari
    said “concerning Abu Talib” in view of the fact that Islam did reach him unlike the
    other three who died in fitra.” (4)





    [Lack of Proof That His Parents Were Not of the
    Pure Religion (Hanifiyya) and Weakening of the
    Hadith Whereby His Father is in the Fire]


    SECOND
    The shirk (idolatry) of the Prophet’s parents is not an established fact and that they more
    probably followed the Pure Religion (Hanifiyya) of their ancestor Ibrahim. A group of
    Arabs did that, such as `Amr ibn Nufayl and Waraqa ibn Nawfal and others. This is the
    view of Imam Fakhruddin al-Razi and others named below.

    Al-Razi states in asrar al-tanzil that some scholars have said that Azar was not Ibrahim’s
    father but his uncle because, among other proofs, the parents of prophets are not
    unbelievers. Proving the latter, is the verse, “[Your Lord] Who sees you when you
    stand, and your turning (taqallubak) among those who prostrate themselves”
    (26:218-219), i.e. your descent through the loins of your ancestors, who are called:
    worshippers.

    He continued: And what proves that the Prophet’s parents were not idolaters is his
    saying, “I was carried from the loins of the pure men into the wombs of the pure
    women” (lam azal unqal . . .) Therefore it is necessary that none of his ancestors be a
    mushrik.

    The above is verbatim what Imam Razi said, and I remind you of his status as the Imam
    of Ahl al-Sunnah among his contemporaries, the principal upholder of belief against the
    various sects of innovators, the one who defended the truth of the Ash`ari creed in his
    time, and the Mujaddid (renewer) of this Ummah in the sixth century. (5)

    I say also, what further establishes the truth of this method and of what Imam al-Razi
    said is, first, the authentic Hadiths to the effect that the Prophet’s origins are the best in
    every respect from Adam to his father `Abdullah, and that his century is the best; second,
    the Hadiths to the effect that the earth is never empty of the True Monotheists
    (muwahhidun) from Adam until Judgment Day, and that it is for their sake that the earth is
    preserved otherwise it would have perished long ago. These two points categorically
    prove that the best origins and the true monotheists are first and foremost the parents of
    the prophets as it ill fits that they should be mushriks while other people be considered of
    the fitra. (6)



    Another perspective which verifies that method is the verse whereby Allah keeps tawhid -
    knowledge of Oneness - within the posterity of Ibrahim. [He cites verses, commentaries,
    and Hadiths to that effect.]
    Further probative views are that of Imam Abu al-Hasan al-Mawardi in A`lam al-nubuwwa
    who said,
    The light of prophecy was present in the Prophet’s parents, and the Prophet had
    no partner in inheriting it, that is, no brother and no sister, because the quintessence
    (safwa) of his parents resides in him, and the greatness of their lineage (nasab) is
    derived from him alone, and that is also why they died young.
    Further, Ibn al-Jawzi enumerates in al-Talqih the names of nine who refused to worship
    idols in the time of the Jahiliyya: Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, Zayd ibn `Amr ibn Nufayl,
    `Abdullah ibn Jahsh, `Uthman ibn al-Huwayrith, Waraqa ibn Nawfal, Rabab ibn al-
    Barra’, As`ad ibn Kurayb al-Humayri, Qass ibn Sa`ida al-Iyadi, Abu Qays ibn Sarma.

    Now for the objections that:
    Muslim narrated on the authority of Anas:
    A man said, O Messenger of Allah, where is my father?” He said: “In the fire.”
    When the man left he called him back and said, “Verily my father and your father
    are in the fire.( 7)

    Muslim and Abu Dawud narrated on Abu Hurayra’s authority:

    That the Prophet asked permission to ask forgiveness for his mother and it was not
    granted him [and he asked permission to visit her grave and it was granted].( 8)
    I say: Yes (they did narrate it) and the answer is that the narrators do not agree on the
    words, “Verily my father and your father are in the fire.” The chain that Muslim used is
    that of Hammad ibn Salama - from Thabit - from Anas. It is contradicted by the chain of Mu’ammar - from Thabit - (from Anas), which does not mention those words, but which says, “He called him back and said, “When you pass by the grave of an unbeliever, tell him of the fire.”


    There is no mention of the Prophet’s father in the latter version whatsoever, and its chain is more established (athbat) as Mu`ammar is more established than Hammad, whose memory has been questioned and some of whose narrations have been rejected.

    Bukhari did not take anything from him, nor did Muslim in the usul (Hadiths related to the principles of the Shari`ah) except through Thabit. Mu’ammar is impeccable from all those points of view and both Bukhari and Muslim use him. His version is therefore more reliable.


    The Hadith also comes through another chain in a wording similar to the version of Mu`ammar:
    Al-Bazzar, Tabarani, and Bayhaqi cite it on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Sa`d - from al-
    Zuhri - from `Amr ibn Sa`d - from his father, that:

    A Bedouin Arab said to the Prophet , “Where is my father?” He answered, “In the
    fire.” The man said, “And where is yours?” The Prophet replied, “Whenever you
    pass by the grave of an unbeliever, tell him about the fire.”

    The above chain is authentic according to the criteria of Bukhari and Muslim: reliance
    upon it therefore takes precedence over any other (that does not meet such criterion).
    Tabarani and Bayhaqi add that the Arab later entered Islam and said, “The Prophet
    put a heavy burden on me, because I did not pass by a single grave of an unbeliever
    except I told him about the fire.” Ibn Majah cites something similar through Ibrahim ibn
    Sa`d - from al-Zuhri - from Salim - from his father.

    The above addition shows beyond doubt that the words spoken by the Prophet had a
    general meaning, and that the Arab was given an order which he carried out all his life. In
    the first narration, however, he was not ordered anything. It is clear that the first narrator
    related it in the form he understood (incorrectly).

    Al-Hakim in the Mustadrak narrates the following (sahih) on the authority of Luqayt ibn
    `Amr, that the latter went in a delegation comprising Nuhayk ibn ‘Asim ibn Malik ibn al-
    Muntafiq to Medina to see the Prophet . The latter asked,

    Is there any good among those of us who were in Jahiliyya?” He said, “Your father
    al-Muntafiq is in the Fire.” Nuhayk said, “I thought an abyss had opened between
    the skin of my face and my very flesh when I heard him say that about my father in
    front of everyone. I wanted to say, What about yours, O Prophet, but I considered
    it more appropriate to say instead, What about your family, O Prophet?” The
    Prophet answered, “Whenever you see the grave of an idolater, whether of the
    Quraysh or of ‘Amr, say, Muhammad sends me to you to tell you about the fire.”

    The preceding is the clearest narration yet of what took place. Now, even if the words,
    “My father and your father” are established as authentic, this does not mean ‘Abdullah
    but Abu Talib [cf. Bukhari and Muslim’s narrations of the dakhdakh or shallow fire in
    which he is placed due to the Prophet’s intercession], similarly to what Imam Razi said
    about the Prophet Ibrahim calling his uncle: my father. This is clear from the fact that
    Abu Talib commonly called his nephew “My son,” and that is how the Quraysh also
    called him when they said, “Tell your son to stop insulting our gods.”

    It has also been stated in the Hadith that the most leniently punished of the inmates of
    the fire is Abu Talib [Bukhari and Muslim]. If the Prophet’s parents were in the fire,
    surely they would be the ones to be punished the most leniently. The scholars of the
    principles of jurisprudence (usul) call this an allusive proof (dalalat al-ishara).

    As for the second Hadith: that the Prophet was not allowed to pray at his mother’s
    grave, (it is authentic; however,) it must be explained correctly, since it is a rule of usul
    that whenever irrefutable proofs contradict an authentic Hadith, that Hadith must be
    interpreted in a way that clears the contradiction, and the proofs have precedence over it
    [i.e. it cannot be interpreted to mean that she is in the fire when it is proven otherwise].
    The counter-argument may be made that in the beginning of Islam the Muslim who died
    with unpaid debts was not prayed upon (and asking forgiveness for them was not
    allowed). [This is still the case in Anatolia, where the janaza does not take place until all
    debts are paid on the spot.] The Prophet’s mother may have had this or other reasons
    which prevented his praying upon her, which does not make her a kafira.( 9)
    [Conclusion]
    The majority of the scholars have agreed to the preceding, namely that the Prophet’s
    parents are in Paradise, without need for them to consider the two Hadiths of Muslim
    abrogated. However, as al-Suhayli has pointed out, it is not appropriate for Muslims to
    say such a thing as, “The Prophet’s parents are in the fire,” as he himself said, “Do not
    annoy the living by insulting the dead,” and Allah said, “Those who annoy Allah and
    the Prophet , Allah curses them in this life and in the hereafter” (33:57).

    Al-Qadi Abu Bakr ibn al-`Arabi the Maliki scholar was asked about the man who did say
    such a statement, and he replied, “Such a man is cursed.”


    Finally, a portion of the scholars have gone to the position of withholding their opinion
    on the subject, and Allah knows best.

    FOOT NOTES:
    (1) Imam al-Suyuti wrote no less than five fatawa on this topic. What is translated here by Shaykh
    Gibril has been excerpted from his treatise entitled: “Methods Of Those With Pure Belief
    Concerning The Parents Of The Prophet” (Masalik al-Hunafa’ fi walidayy al-Mustafa)


    (2)Yusuf `Ali translates bi zulm as “for their wrongdoing” and attributes it to the object (the
    people) not the subject (Allah). This produces the following meaning: “Thy Lord would not
    destroy for their wrongdoing men’s habitations whilst their occupants were unwarned.” Qurtubi
    mentions both meanings in his Tafsir.

    (3)The Hadiths of Muslim on the Prophet’s father and mother are addressed later.

    (4).Other similar Hadiths follow in descending order of authenticity, but which Suyuti adduces
    nonetheless to build up the strength of the evidence that the explicit intercession of the Prophet
    for his parents is true.
    (5).These words by Suyuti make plain the deviation of “Salafi” charlatans who insinuate that he was not an Ash`ari or that al-Razi does not represent Ahl al-Sunnah or that his Tafsir is not representative of Ahl al-Sunnah! See for example the disparaging mention of al-Razi and of his monumental Tafsir in Mani` al-Qattan’s book published in Riyadh at dar al-sa`udiyya lil-nashr,
    entitled: mabahith fi `ulum al-Qur’an (1391/1971).



    (6)Suyuti then cites about 44 Hadiths sahih or hasan to illustrate the two points above. ( WAHABIS NOTE : either sahih or hasan and not Mawdu)


    (7).Muslim, Iman, chapter 88

    (8).Muslim, Jana’iz, chapter 36

    (9).As for the Hadith “Your mother is in the Fire.... My mother is with your mother,” it is very weak and,moreover, contains an indication that the Prophet's intercession may serve to bring them out of the Fire: “Whatever I ask my Lord about the two of them [the Prophet's parents], I hope that He will give me. I shall stand, on that day, at the praiseworthy Station.”


    This Hadith is narrated from Ibn Mas`ud by Ahmad, al-Tabari in his Tafsir, al-Hakim
    (2:365=1990 ed. 2:396), al-Darimi (book of Riqaq), Abu al-Shaykh in al-`Azama, and Ibn al-Mundhir, all with very weak chains because of `Uthman ibn `Umayr who is disclaimed as a narrator (munkar al-hadith) cf. Shaykh Ahmad Shakir in his edition of the Musnad (4:31-32 §3787), al-Haythami (10:361-362), and al-Dhahabi’s rejection of al-Hakim’s grading of authentic.


    A Kind Note to Wahabis:
    (1).Go and Practice clitoridectomy in female circumcision as advised by your wahabi sheikh Salih al- Munajjid.
    (2) He is the same salih al Munajjid who agreed on the authenticity of Imam Dahabi's Letter written to Ibn Taymiah.

    Re: Lost faith

    I will kindly add my cut and paste job.....

    Question:
    Where are the parents of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? Are they in Paradise or in Hell? We hope you can tell us of a hadeeth which proves the answer?.

    Answer:
    Praise be to Allaah.

    There is a hadeeth from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) which indicates that they are in Hell.
    Muslim (203) narrated from Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that a man said: “O Messenger of Allaah, where is my father?” He said: “In Hell.” When he turned away he called him back and said: “My father and your father are in Hell.”
    Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
    This shows that whoever dies in a state of kufr will be in Hell. And being related to one who is close to Allaah will not avail him anything. It also shows that whoever died during the fatrah (the interval between the Prophethood of ‘Eesa (peace be upon him) and that of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)) and was the follower of the way of the Arabs at that time, which was idol worship, will also be among the people of Hell. There is no excuse for the call not reaching them, because the call of Ibraaheem and other Prophets (peace be upon them) had reached these people.
    Muslim (976) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I asked my Lord for permission to pray for forgiveness for my mother, but He did not give me permission. And I asked Him for permission to visit her grave, and He gave me permission.”
    It says in ‘Awn al-Ma’bood:
    “But He did not give me permission” means: because she was a kaafirah (disbeliever) and it is not permissible to pray for forgiveness for the kuffaar.
    Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
    This shows that it is not permitted to pray for forgiveness for the kuffaar.
    Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
    When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “My father and your father are in Hell,” he spoke with knowledge, for he did not speak on the basis of his whims and desires, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
    “By the star when it goes down (or vanishes).
    2. Your companion (Muhammad) has neither gone astray nor has erred.
    3. Nor does he speak of (his own) desire.
    4. It is only a Revelation revealed”
    [al-Najm 53:1-4]
    Were it not that proof has been established against ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, the father of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) would not have said what he did about him. Perhaps he had heard something that established proof against him on the basis of the religion of Ibraaheem, because they used to follow the religion of Ibraaheem until the innovations were introduced by ‘Amr ibn Luhayy al-Khuzaa’i and his innovations became widespread among the people, such as the propagation of idols and praying to them instead of to Allaah. Perhaps ‘Abd-Allaah had heard something that showed him that the idol worship of Quraysh was wrong, but he still followed them, and thus proof was established against him. Similarly, the hadeeth which says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked for permission to pray for forgiveness for his mother but it was not granted, and he asked for permission to visit her grave and he was permitted to do so but not to pray for forgiveness for her, perhaps she had heard something that established proof against her, or perhaps the people of the Jaahiliyyah are to be treated as kuffaar as far as rulings in this world are concerned, so we should not pray for them or pray for forgiveness for them, because outwardly they seem to be kuffaar, and should be regarded and dealt with as such, and their case in the Hereafter is for Allaah to judge.
    Fataawa Noor ‘ala al-Darb

    Al-Suyooti (may Allaah have mercy on him) was of the view that the parents of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) will be saved (from Hell), and that Allaah brought them back to life after they had died and they believed in him.
    This view was rejected by the majority of scholars who ruled that the ahaadeeth which indicate that are fabricated (mawdoo’) or very weak (da’eef jiddan).
    It says in ‘Awn al-Ma’bood:
    Most of the reports that been narrated to the effect that the parents of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) were brought back to life and believed in him and were saved are fabricated and false. Some of them are very weak and cannot be saheeh under any circumstances, as the imams of hadeeth are unanimously agreed that they are fabricated, such as al-Daaraqutni, al-Jawzaqaani, Ibn Shaheen, al-Khateeb, Ibn ‘Asaakir, Ibn Naasir, Ibn al-Jawzi, al-Suhayli, al-Qurtubi, al-Muhibb, al-Tabari, Fath al-Deen ibn Sayyid al-Naas, Ibraaheem al-Halabi and others. The scholar Ibraaheem al-Halabi explained at length the fact that the parents of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) have not been saved from Hell in a separate essay, as did ‘Ali al-Qaari in Sharh al-Fiqh al-Akbar and in a separate essay. The basis for this opinion is the soundness of this hadeeth (“My father and your father are in Hell”). Shaykh Jalaal al-Deen al-Suyooti differed from the huffaaz and scholars and affirmed that they had believed and had been saved, and he wrote numerous essays on that topic, including al-Ta’zeem wa’l-Minnah fi anna Abaway Rasool-Illaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fi’l-Jannah.
    Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: Is there any saheeh report from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) that Allaah brought his parents back to life so that they could become Muslims, then they died (again) after that?
    He replied: There is no saheeh report to that effect from the scholars of hadeeth. Rather the scholars are agreed that this is an invented lie… There is no dispute among the scholars that this is one of the most obvious of fabrications, as was stated by those who have knowledge. That does not appear in any of the reliable books of hadeeth, either in the Saheehs or the Sunans or the Musnads or any other well-known books of hadeeth. It was not mentioned by the authors of the books of Maghaazi or Tafseer, even though they narrated da’eef (weak) reports along with saheeh (sound) ones. The fact that this is a lie is clear to any one who has any knowledge of religion. If such a thing had happened there would have been a great deal of motivation to transmit it, because it is something that is extraordinary on two counts: the raising of the dead and believing after death. Such a thing would have been more deserving of being transmitted than anything else. Since no trustworthy narrated transmitted it, it may be understood that this is a lie.
    Moreover, this goes against the Qur’aan and the saheeh Sunnah, and the consensus of the scholars. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
    “Allaah accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and foolishness and repent soon afterwards; it is they whom Allaah will forgive and Allaah is Ever All‑Knower, All‑Wise.
    18. And of no effect is the repentance of those who continue to do evil deeds until death faces one of them and he says: ‘Now I repent;’ nor of those who die while they are disbelievers”
    [al-Nisa’ 4:17-18]
    So Allaah states that there is no repentance for one who dies as a disbeliever. And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
    “Then their Faith (in Islamic Monotheism) could not avail them when they saw Our punishment. (Like) this has been the way of Allaah in dealing with His slaves. And there the disbelievers lost utterly (when Our Torment covered them)”
    [Ghaafir 40:85]
    So He tells us that the way in which He deals with His slaves is that faith will be to no avail once they have seen the punishment, so how about after death? And there are other similar texts. Then he quoted the two hadeeth which we quoted at the beginning of our answer.
    Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 4/325-327.

    Re: Lost faith

    I dont mean to offend anybody from this post but i will say it anyways because i think its extremely important for people to direct their attention towards this problem.
    I see a lot of you taking meanings and texts of scholars at surface value without actually processing and pondering upon why these scholars said such a thing. You quickly take the meaning your mind understood at face value regardless of whether your interpretation or legitimacy of understanding is correct or not. And this is very dangerous because once you transmit this knowledge it will consist of an inaccurate or morphed meaning ... and even worse, the person who would reserve it would further misunderstand and amplify the effect along the way. So imagine how morphed up some of your understandings about basic values and knowledge of islam is right now after generations up generations of this effect taking place along the way.

    I am honestly stunned at how some of you are so afraid and unwilling to use their deductive reasoning to process and assess the words and messages of some great scholars that we know of today. I mean honestly stunned! Firstly, its not that we should use it to criticize the scholars themselves, it is actually to criticize our understanding of how we perceive their knowledge and information that they pass on. So its not meant for them its actually meant for us to better understand them in the first place. Saying that we shouldnt use our critical thinking in things like this is hella dangerous because when you stop questioning your understanding you stop questioning your sense of right and wrong, your morals, your senses and even your basic humanity which is probably the most important thing in the human after his imaan.

    Simply think of it like this ... A soldier that does not question some of his leader's seemingly absurd commands is an immoral and a bad one (no different from a mercenary, paid to kill ... zero humanity). While a good soldier who actually question some of his leaders absurd commands will either learn more from them and elevate his status or lose his title as a soldier ... but at least he will always hold true to his countries safety and service. Like wise a muslim who questions some of the commands that are passed down to him though laymen who misunderstood the actual scholars of islam is in a much better and safer state than that who blindly follows without question thinking that the information he is getting must be 100% and without a doubt untainted or misrepresent in anyway when these things and mishaps happen all the time. And that exactly is the reason why some of you probably were unable to understand and comprehend what i said in my previous posts ... Its because you never practiced challenging yourself and your face value understanding of texts and information. Yet when it comes to others, we easily brush off the arguments by saying you havent pondered enough about the Quran or this or the other ...

    Secondly, this fear of critical thinking inhibits a lot of us to reach a level of knowledge where we can actually make ijihad instead of acting like parrots making takleed 24/7 and never thinking for ourselves. Thats why islam is consistently getting more and more difficult because we are allowing the west to design everything for us and we just implement their systems into our countries without coming up with anything ourselves that would suit the rules and regulations of our religion. instead, we sit around complaining about why the salaf are a thousand times better than us when we are doing everything that doesnt matter that they did and leaving the only thing that matter which they did which is ijtihad. Because apparently some scholars are afraid of making ijitad so everyone else becomes afraid of it.

    There are soooo many bad things that have come up in this world because of thinkings like this (again i mean no offense to those who think that way but just look around with an open mind and you will see) yet we turn a cold shoulder and insist that everything is ok and that the ways of the salaf is the way that should be follow when we are in a time and age that is almost unrecognizable to that of the time of salaf ... its a way of thinking that just screems disaster ...

    You lost me there ... So he knows that ALLLL the people who existed at that time have heard of the call of Ibraaheem (AAS)? How? does he share in Allah's power of knowledge or somekind?

    Re: Lost faith

    You and I are not capable of making itjihad. You question well established Sunnah's in previous posts. You don't know the Seerah properly when I had to correct you in a previous post about it. Yet you think you have the knowledge to go ahead and make itjihad on an issue based on your whims and desires. This isn't how Islam works. That is how the kuffar systems of religion and political ideologies work. You want Islam to be like that. Too bad. It isn't going to happen. This deen has 1400 plus years of established scholars that has handed down to us. We just have to hear and obey. I don't need to question why men can't wear gold and silk or listen to music. You want Islam to conform to you and how the kuffar live.

    salaam

    Its odd how we have an entire thread of people trying to chuck people in Hell. The bottom line is Only Allah swt decides where people will end up - our Job is to be moral exemplars and not have some sort of superiority complex.

    Do you think the pious don't sin?

    They merely:
    Veiled themselves and didn't flaunt it
    Sought forgiveness and didn't persist

    Got to love the Arrogance. Did God tell you exactly who is going to be in heaven and Hell? Only a few names are mentioned other then that we are all in the Dark. I've seen plenty of people Born Muslims and Converts come to this religion and then leave after few years. So dont be so sure who the believers are and who the disbelievers are. Life has many surprises.

    Do you think the pious don't sin?

    They merely:
    Veiled themselves and didn't flaunt it
    Sought forgiveness and didn't persist
    Took ownership of it and don't justify it
    And acted with excellence after they had erred - Ibn al-Qayyim

I am an arab and an arabic speaker myself. So its safe to say i have a very decent understanding of the language in general. And when it comes to specifics, i can easily research on a matter and conclude whether a word means that which the research claims or not.

    1) "Logically and by definition it stands to reason anyone who doesn't believe is by default a non-believer." This is a logical fallacy in of itself (blackorwhite fallacy)

    Jazakallahu khair brother. Inshallah we all can discuss in an islamic manner here while respecting everyone's opinions. Where deen and deen matters are concerned, there is no room for our opinions. But where there is room for sharing our opinions and understanding then there's nothing wrong with that.

    I'm not an arabic native so naturally you would have a better understanding of the language. But the logic and concept I put forth applies to any language. I was going by simplest terms and logic and in simple logic 101, if not A then B. You are saying black/white fallacy knowing there are other colors too. But it's more like on/off logic. Either the lights are on or off, not something in between.

    Unless you have another word for them, one i have never come across in the Quran, sunnah or from scholars.

    2) "Muslim=(believer)" ... That is incorrect. A muslim is a person who submits to Allah & his message but doesnt necessarily believes in it. A mu'men on the other hand IS a believer. PROOF=> (Quran 49:14)

    The bedouins say, "We have believed." Say, "You have not [yet] believed; but say [instead], 'We have submitted,' for faith has not yet entered your hearts. And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, He will not deprive you from your deeds of anything. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful."

    The words which bedouins used is "amanaa" (we believed) and Allah (AWJ) said "You have not become mu'menoon (believers) instead you have become muslimoon (submitters )"

    By azc's claim and many on this thread, if a person is not a believer (aka mu'men) he is a disbeliever, (and according to the verse above, even if he says the kalima, he is still not yet a believer.) ... he is worthy of going to hell fire. What im saying is that this is wrong. This also negates your other statement about shahada. "A believer can be a believer by shahadah only and has no other knowledge or a momin."
    This is getting into the technicality of it. Yes, obviously there's a difference between a believer and a submitter. But by a broader definition and going by english definition, Naturally, a believer is someone who believes/accepts something and a disbeliever would be someone who does not accept or believe the same thing. For example, the earth is flat. Either you believe that to be true and are a believer in that or believe it to be false and not a believer of that statement. There is no in between.

    Regardless of what others say, one who states the shahadah is a believer and this is a confirmed sunnah. And that is level 1, the starting point. And then through our taqwa and ebadah we reach higher to ishan level. So we are all believers but each one at a different level of belief and eman.
    3) "kuffar=(disbeliever)" The second point and my previous posts here have already refuted this but i will further explain as needed. The origin of a state of kuffr is a state of acknowledgement. Kuffr linguistically means to cover or to veil, so basically that which you are committing an act of kuffr uppon has to exist (or be acknowledge in the case of intangible things such as belief) in order for an act of kuffr to be committed on it. So when you tell me that people who passed away prior to islam are kuffar then i say this doesnt even make sense. Its just like saying a bull is either milked or unmilked ... BUT ITS A BULL. get what im trying to say?
    I'm aware that the kaafir is the one who denies and conceals the truth. The basic meaning of the word kufr in Arabic is concealment. I agree with you on that.


    however,like i said before. There are levels to each of them. I use the word kuffar loosely to mean anyone who is not a Muslim by default is kuffar. Now a kuffar can be a full blown kuffar by the definition of kufr, or a kuffar by loosely applied definition in that either you a Muslim or you are not. There is no in between. This isn't to say all kuffars will go to hell. This is only to differentiate in that either one accepts Islam and proclaims the shahadah and thereby is a Muslim or one is not and if they are not a Muslim then what are they? what word is used in Islam for that person?


    @azc in response to your link ... here is another link that refutes it.
    http://ahlussunnahwaljamah.blogspot....f-islamqa.html
    I went to this blog and saw what this was about. The blog is by some unknown individual. There is no picture of the person, name given of the owner and no introduction of who is or what are his credentials. So for someone to attack Islamqa and accuse of it of lies while they are basically an anonymous on-line holds very little weight. I wouldn't trust that information, part of taking any information from anyone in Islam is to verify the credibility of a person first.

    @ChosenTCO:

    See my post #75. Your questions have been answered in it. No need to regurgate the same issue.

    Now see this one from the link you gave:

    Al-Bazzar and Hakim, who graded it sahih by the criteria of Bukhari and Muslim: The
    Prophet said,
    The people of Jahiliyya will come on the Day of Judgment carrying their idols on
    their backs. Allah will question them and they will say: Our Lord, You did not send
    us a Messenger and nothing from You reached us. If you had sent us one, we would
    have been your most obedient servants. Allah will say, Shall I test your obedience?
    And He will tell them to enter the fire and stay in it. They will enter it and return
    again, in fear of its fury and exhalations, and they will say, Our Lord, protect us
    from it. He will say: Didn’t you promise to obey Me if I ordered you something?
    They will pledge again and enter it, only to come back and plead again. The Prophet
    said, Had they stayed in it the first time, they would have found it cool and safe.

That is how the kuffar systems of religion and political ideologies work. You want Islam to be like that. Too bad. It isn't going to happen. This deen has 1400 plus years of established scholars that has handed down to us. We just have to hear and obey. I don't need to question why men can't wear gold and silk or listen to music. You want Islam to conform to you and how the kuffar live.
    "We are in capable of making ijtihad". Thats whats bothering me. If i ask why, the most probable answer i will get is because we dont have enough knowledge to do so. And i agree with that, but why dont we have enough knowledge? Its because of people like you having the same mentality as you! I have seen multiple times were someone would genuinely ask a question about why something is so and so in islam and you would just bash them for asking the simplest of questions. You accuse them of being a troll, a non-muslim, and a person who is trying to intentionally cause fitna between other muslims on this forum. This is the mentality of a weak and insecure muslim who probably doesnt know why he believes in something but is just too afraid to question himself.

    I think we all know the difference between the Prophets intentions and the devil's intention. The Prophet intended to save the people from hellfire and encourage then to become muslim and the devils tried to do vice versa. Lets have a look at what you tried to do and inferred about the OP in your posts (#24,26,28). You asked him to remove his religion status as a muslim to something else, just like the devils would like. Not only that, what you did there can also be considered as takfeer. And since your so much more knowledgeable than me in islam, im guessing you would know how haram it is to do such a thing without full proof of this individual truly being a kaffir.

    Are you referring to that one time were i wrote 1000 instead of 10,000. or about that time were you neglected to consider some of the most remarkable and highlighted signs of mercy of the prophet in the seerah? And you called them kicks and giggles, choosing to neglect them and only focus on that one time where Allah informed the Prophet that he was too merciful toward mushrikuun captives during the early stages of islam? No brother thank you, im not going to take lessons about islam from a person who doesnt even have basic comprehensive skills to understand a simple question from a simple layman ... Even a simple question about why music is haram automatically makes the questioner want to legalize it and gold and silk in your eyes? Wow brother ... just wow.

    I really never have though of it but off of the top of my head, there is Muwahidoon (monotheists) and Ahl al Fitrah (the people of fitrah) ... 2 examples that describle people who are not necessarily muslim, but follow the same primary principle of islam which is tawheed (monotheism).

My problem is when someone uses that term without explaining what he think its means or uses it for, then inscribes it to all people who are non-muslims regardless of whether these people will go to heaven or hell.

    For example, by your very definition: A retarded or mentally handicap person who says he does not believe in islam is considered a kafir. In islam, we know that the mentally handicap person is will exempted from punishment because he does not have the means to carry the message of Allah. Yet in reality we all know that the word kafir only refers to those who are worthy of hellfire. I believe this is what is causing the confusion. this is why we should not call ALL non believers to be kuffar, instead we should just call them non-believers ... and if you are asking what is the word of a non believer in arabic then i would have to say, based on my knowledge of the language that there is non. Only terms that describe disbelievers(kuffar), atheist(mulhidoon), polytheists(mushrikoon) and so on.

I trust that Allah AWJ is just and merciful. He would never give an unfair trial to someone and assess them based on it. He would never because He (AWJ) himself said that He would do no injustice towards his creation (Quran 8:51) [Allah is not ever unjust to His servants]. And it doesnt take a sherlock to know if such is a fair trial or not. I hope this managed to clear our differences a bit and puts us on the same page.

    Get over yourself. Your opinions mean nothing to the religion of Islam. The only mentally weak and insecure person is you. I have certainty in the laws of the Shariah. You don't. That OP came on here with the first post as a member to spew nonsense and fitnah. He was a troublemaker. And when I told him to change his religion status he complied willingly. That doesn't help his case that he is a Muslim. So he is either a troll or an apostate from before he even signed up to this forum. And Allah Knows Best.

    Please please please can we all just calm down. Its becoming impossible to have a civil conversation/debate. We dont know whats going on with the OP atm . We should be supporting the OP, not further driving him away from Islam with our unkindness.

    we should not call ALL non believers to be kuffar, instead we should just call them non-believers ... and if you are asking what is the word of a non believer in arabic then i would have to say, based on my knowledge of the language that there is non. Only terms that describe disbelievers(kuffar), atheist(mulhidoon), polytheists(mushrikoon) and so on.
    Glad we're on the same page bro. I try not to get into semantics though, Quran doesn't play around with technicalities. Those who are Muslims, it calls them that, and those who are not, it calls them kuffar/fasiqoon/mushrik/etc. So I keep it simple to those terms. Either you are a Muslim or you are not a Muslim, which by English definition would mean either you have a believer of a given faith or you are disbeliever of that faith. If saying non-believer rather then disbeliever makes you happy then go with that. I'm just talking in general sense. All the exceptions to that is clear as well when it comes to children, elderly, insane and those who did not receive the message of Islam.


    I guess you could regard it as an untrust worthy islamic sight but what about all the proof and evidences shown on that site? shouldnt we consider them if we are to look for the truth?

    we could consider them, but let's say we do then we go and consider them again from the source till we start relying on it as being reliable source and when they slip misinformation in there to misguide, we accept that too. Look at such sources from un-confirmable individuals should be left to the students of knowledge, not your average online reader. we follow Islam and per Islam we verify the credential of the person first before we take our deen from them.
