    Islamic Law of the Ismā’Īlīyyah, Ismaili Muslims in Qarsherskiy and their beliefs of Shariah

    Schariyya is what people in the Islamic Sultanate of Qarsherskiy call Islamic Law. It’s an alternative spelling of Sharia or Shariah. In Qarsherskiy, Muslims of various sects live close together in small log cabin and tent cities under a thick canopy of Humid Subtropical Rainforests, the only...

    Power of Relics

    Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and many other religions have relics. Sometime their small trinkets spanning into weapons and even human body part remains or full bodies. It is fascinating to me that so many people would treasure these relics for so long. It really shows how...

    How do Sunni Muslims view the Battle of the Camel ?

    The Battle of the Camel was about who would succeed Uthman of the Umayyad Caliphate. Shia Muslims believe Prophet Muhammad nominated Ali (his cousin and son-in-law) to be successor but only 10-15% of Muslims in the world are Shia. What do Sunni Muslims believe? Do they support Lady Aisha? Why?

    Iran and Saudi Arabia: Double Standards ?

    Why do Iranians complain about the mandatory headscarf rule in Iran while the Saudi Arabians do not appear to complain about it ? Why do we make documentaries and news articles about the protests in Iran but say nothing about Saudi Arabia ? Is Islam to blame?

    Iran's headscarf crackdown: blame Islam ?

    If girls in Iran are getting beaten, arrested and killed by security forces, is it the fault of Islam ? Does this mean Islam will decline with time as more and more Iranians rise up against the regime ?

    My Understanding along the Journey

    What I would be sharing here as the Title mentions is My Understanding of Scriptures especially Islamic , because I have studied , heard, debated and grew up(still) in that atmosphere. But when faced with extremely challenging situations in life , I couldn't find some answers which increased my...

    Unity within Religious Groups

    The Baha'i Faith is a very interesting religion. It allows its members to do virtually anything they want and remain a Baha'i. If you are gay and want to have a gay marriage, you cannot have a gay Baha'i marriage, but you can get married the secular way if your government permits it. There's a...

    I recently had said that monotheism is a contradiction because it is impossible to not be of the Universe yet be involved in it in so many ways. That's probably not true. I mean, look at the Internet. I'm interacting with all of you despite not being in your house. But exactly what does God do...

    I finished reading earlier today Patricia Crone and Michael Cook's "Hagarism: The Making of the Islamic World" (1977 ed.). I admit I only skimmed the last section of the book and the first appendix. One of the previous owners of the book (which I had borrowed from the uni library) had...

    Was Muhammad A Prophet? Some Questions and Concerns

    Howdy! Recently I've been reading a lot about Jesus Christ and Muhammad. This is for a variety of reasons but the origins of both the early church and the early ummah are very interesting to me. I have my doubts about the exact nature of Jesus Christ but he is a very interesting figure and I...

    Systems, Theology, No path Path

    Howdy! I just felt like sharing some thoughts. The universe started with a divine dance. Not something like a waltz but something more like salsa. Shiva and Shakti came together, and their dance created all things. There was passion, lust, adventure, thrills, horror and so many other things...

    The Bible Is A Heavily Outdated Book

    Nothing in the bible and what it says can be applied to the normal way of life today. Heck, some of its texts are almost 3,000 years old! The bible is a collection of 66 books composed by random authors over the course of a very long period of time. Most of the authors, at least in the old...

    The "Lukewarm Christian" Logical Fallacy Debunked

    Ex-christian here. When I was a christian I was presented with two distinct forms of christianity; one where you say a few abracadabra words and you are good to go and the other was "you just have to keep at it or you are lost." The latter makes LESS sense than the first concept if you are a...

    Interesting Experience and Thoughts about Interconnection

    So It's been a little while since I posted on these forums but I have been continuing my practice. Yesterday I was doing my normal ritual worship and meditation. I offered a banana to Ma Kali then bowed down so my head touched the floor. When my head touched the floor I was immediately filled...

    Asking Questions and Not Taking it All So Seriously

    Howdy! I just thought I’d share some thoughts while they were fresh in my mind. I’ve been fascinated with religion most of my life but for a long time it was purely academic. I was an atheist after I left Islam and remained as such for quite a while. I would debate people about the existence...

    Bahai without Muhammad, Sufism without Islam

    Howdy! I recently had a previous event come to mind. I had met some Bahais and we were talking about religion. The thing that came up was that I didn't believe Muhammad was a prophet but that he was central to Bahai. We ended up talking for awhile never really got past the issue. So I was...

    Meaning In Fictional and "Real" Religion

    Howdy folks. This was inspired by the post Fictional Religions so you guys should check that out I suppose. I was thinking about fictional religions and the thought I kept coming back to is that whether an idea appears in what we might call fiction vs what we might call scripture is...
