You should read this letter: https://www.al-islam.org/nahjul-balagha-part-2-letters-and-sayings/letter-53-order-malik-al-ashtar
Habituate your heart to mercy for the subjects and to affection and kindness for them. Do not stand over them like greedy beasts who feel it is enough to devour them, since they are of two kinds, either your brother in religion or one like you in creation.
The translation says that but original Arabic I would say says "your equal in creation".
Imam Ali (a) is the speaking Quran. His opinion can't be dismissed per Quran.That's not from the Qur'an. It's one man's opinion. Dismissed.
Ok , so i can agree with how you compare the evaluation , but the effect is not the same.
I think love and hate are part of the same coin. It's the evaluating component. To be true to value, we have to love positive value and hate negative value. Hate and love are opposites, but that's expected way, doesn't mean one is right the other is wrong. It means they are such a delicate matter that we have to be very careful on how we value. We must base on truth as best as possible.Ok , so i can agree with how you compare the evaluation , but the effect is not the same.
You have a problem when they interact;you used "in the same".
Also , the way you value it is dependable on adjective.
What happens if you switch them?
So again , how can you define it as "same value" when the effect is different?
I wanted to explain something with the example of blasphemy, but you used love.
What if you condemn blasphemy for example , does that automatically mean is neccesary to hate it ?
Do you think Condemn and hate should work together?
Yes. But, it doesn't mean ignore everything else that a person might have that is positive. God's relationship to his creation he will deal with them. Our relationship is our relationship.What if you condemn blasphemy for example , does that automatically mean is neccesary to hate it ?
That's where we differ,I think they split ways when they are caused from the source.I think love and hate are part of the same coin. It's the evaluating component. To be true to value, we have to love positive value and hate negative value. Hate and love are opposites, but that's expected way, doesn't mean one is right the other is wrong. It means they are such a delicate matter that we have to be very careful on how we value. We must base on truth as best as possible.
This is why love needs guidance. Without it, humans will love chaotically and hate chaotically. Guidance is needed so we don't love chaotically per whims and hate chaotically per whims.
Hate needs guidance too since it's the other side of coin. If we love everything equally the same, we been unjust to the honorable good by equating them to the evil. This is not fair at all.
Perhaps, there is something you are missing? Will hate really return the Best results? Many have learned that the price for Hate is always too high.
VaguePraising something, without love, doesn't mean much. Condemning, something without hate, will inevitably lead to hypocrisy and you will act to the evil.
If you didn't hate murder more then minor sins you do, what do you think prevents it? In case of murder, a person may fear jail or find no benefit. So maybe it's not the best example.Vague
You are consistent on love to be depandent of hate in every explanation you give.
So when i condemn killing , does that mean that i am hypocrite, and that i will act on that?
Why Condemn and hate must interact with each other , when you can avoid hate?
The "invent" is similar to "forge", but it didn't say tell (qala) a lie regarding God, but forges/fabricates a lie. You have to keep in mind the context that Mohammad (s) is accused as forging a lie against God.In post 124 you said:
No, I am pointing out that the facts about tagiyya refute your claim that:
"Telling a lie concerning God" is described as the worst crime of all."
No, it does not.
- 29:68 - "And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah or rejects the Truth when it reaches him?"
- 39:32 - "Who, then, doth more wrong than one who utters a lie concerning Allah, and rejects the Truth when it comes to him."
- It is implied in hundreds of verses such as 2:39 in which rejection of Allah's message is an automatic ticket to hell - "those who reject Faith and belie Our Signs, they shall be companions of the Fire", and 8:55 - "the worst of beasts in the sight of Allah are those who reject Him."
And now we're at the point where you pretend these doesn't qualify. Go for it.
The best results aren't happening. That ship has set sailed. There is only salvaging now what we can.Perhaps, there is something you are missing? Will hate really return the Best results? Many have learned that the price for Hate is always too high.
That's what I see. It's very clear!!
