Why Did Allah Create The Universe? What Is The Purpose Of Our Creation?
You are here
Salaam Alaykum. Many of our scholars who have supported the theory of Wahdat Al Wujood have been attacked and disagreed with, in some cases even cursed. Scholars include Ayatullah Khomeini (May Allah raise his status in Jannah). How do we refute arguments against these individuals and their beliefs? What should the correct stance be in terms of this theory? Ie what should be our approach and opinion towards Wahdat Al Wujood?
I have been reading books on the basis of religion. When it comes to finding the truth, every religion thinks it follows the truth and so do we, as Muslims. Is there any way to prove that we are following the truth without using Islamic scriptures as that is a bias we have introduced to prove the truth (being followers of the Islamic religion). Why can't we accept that all religions spread the truth?
I have a question that was put to me by my brother. He asked why do we love the Prophet Mohammad (SAWW). He did great things and so we admire him but why love?
I hope that makes sense.
Awaiting your response and wassalaam

May this reach you in the best of health.
I have been struggling with wearing the headscarf lately. I know that most scholars agree that the headscarf is mandatory. What I would like to know is why Allah made it obligatory for women and not men. I am aware of the physical and biological differences between the two genders but there are a lot of speculations around when the hijab became mandatory. Allah is just and wouldn't have different expectations from different individuals.
In the quran Allah says 'Indeed Allah does not forgive association with Him but forgives everything else for whom He wills..' (4:48).
However when we directly ask Imam's for assistance or go to Karbala and ask Imam Hussain for the fulfillment of our hajaat, we are associating our Imams with Allah indirectly. So isnt that shirk?
This issue has caused me many sleepless nights, please answer in details as to relinquish all doubts in my mind.
Assalamu Alaikum, I am a 24 years old student. I had a severe psychological problem and i suffered from severe anxiety problems for the past 3 years. and for this I could not complete my three year intakes of four year University course. Before that I was pious boy who used to pray and research on Islam. But suddenly I don't know how some evil force took me away from all the good deeds that i used to do. I did not even feel the guilt for not attending the fard and jummah praters! something very wrong happened to me. But that was not the end.
Question is that I am Muslim my whole life but I do not believe in the Hadith. I reject the Hadith because I believe it is not from Allah.
Because Mohammad said: ما كنت بدعا من الرسل وما أدری ما يفعل بی ولا بكم إن أتبع إلا ما يوحى إلي وما أنا إلا نذير "I follow only what is revealed to me [from Allah] and I am only a clear warner."
— Quran 46:9, revealed in Mecca. Question is if I believe only in Quran can I go to Janna?
My question is, why is Allah being addressed in the Quran and all the duas of our 12 imams as "He" when at the same time it is common knowledge that Allah is neither he nor she?
