November 01, 2023, 03:44:32 pm Zainab_M: Allahhuma ameen .. ameen.
November 01, 2023, 03:43:43 pm Ruhi_Rose: Yes .. making lots of dua everyday ..... watching those real life video clips, my face feels wet with tears all the time.  May ALLAH grant the best to these wonderful, brave & steadfast martyrs,  Ameen ya Allah.
November 01, 2023, 03:38:26 pm Zainab_M: Keep praying, praying a lot for Gaza. It's worse than a prison .. it's a concentration camp.  Children as young as 10 or 11 are having to care for their younger siblings ages 2, 3 and 4 becoz many have lost both parents.  It's a very, very, very tearful situation there.
October 26, 2023, 03:40:19 pm N. Truth Seeker: Don't forget to look up MV Blog Zainab's Lounge for our Gaza updates.
October 20, 2023, 04:24:44 pm Zainab_M: Right sister Heba.  Gaza hospital bombing has the fingerprints of Israel all over it.  For Israel this is no big crime.  They have done this and much worse many times in the past and intend to do the same and worse many more times in near future.
October 20, 2023, 04:20:20 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Catching Zionist lies isn't hard. Soon after Gaza hospital bombing killing and maiming hundreds, Israel was quick to accuse Islamic Jihad of a misfired rocket.  That didn't sound plausible because IJ does not have such sophisticated bombing devices.  Zionist lie was fully exposed when anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,Hosam Naoum,  said today that 3 or 4 days prior to boming Israel had warned Gaza hospital to evacuate. Yet CIA claims in its flawed analysis that the rocket did not come from Israel.  But conveniently does not explain how Israel could have known 4 days earlier that a "misfired" rocket from IJ was coming.  Yet on the basis of this flawed & bias analysis of CIA, Biden is comforting Israel he believes Israel didn't do that war crimes bombing.
July 29, 2023, 03:02:07 am Zainab_M: Yesterday was Ashura, Muharram 10, 1444 (July 27, 2023).  Read about this very tragic day and details of the world's greatest 7th century revolutionary: WHO WAS HUSSEIN.
June 28, 2023, 09:48:39 am Zainab_M: Walaikum As Salaam.  This was the first Hajj open to all after the pandemic. It was attended by 2.6 million Muslims.

So, We said, "Strike the slain man with part of it." Thus does Allah bring the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you might reason.  2:73 Al Baqrah.

Salam Mv.  What incident does this verse refer to, pls explain.

Thanks a lot.  Good link.  I could follow it.

My other question is on verse 2:76.  I can't understand this verse, grateful if you pls explain.

Behold! when they meet the men of Faith, they say: "We believe": But when they meet each other in private, they say: "Shall you tell them what Allah hath revealed to you, that they may engage you in argument about it before your Lord?"- Do ye not understand (their aim)?  2:76 A Baqrah

It refers to the Jews for sure, and probably also to the Christians, who wanted to hide or had already changed many parts the original Divine contents of their Scriptures.  There were many such folks who pretended before the Muslims that they believed in the Message (the Quran) sent through the Final Messenger.  But when they went apart to their own people, they would discuss and decide not to mention the original contents of their Divine Scriptures because they were already violating it so much.  These people also thought that if the Muslims (followers of Islam) become aware of the Jews and Christians changing their original Divine Scriptures, they (Muslims) would have a valid argument against those Jews and Christians before Allah Almighty on the Day of Judgement.  They forgot that Allah Almighty already knows their intentions and practices as He is aware of every act and intention whether concealed or open. 

If you continue reading from Verses 2:77 to 2:80, my explanation will become clearer.

Thank u again.  I get that.


A little more from Surah Al Baqrah

Following is Surah Al Baqrah verses 67 to 71

67. And [recall] when Moses said to his people, "Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow." They said, "Do you take us in ridicule?" He said, "I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant."
 
68. They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is." [Moses] said, "[Allah] says, 'It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,' so do what you are commanded."

69. They said, "Call upon your Lord to show us what is her color." He said, "He says, 'It is a yellow cow, bright in color - pleasing to the observers.' "

70. They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is. Indeed, [all] cows look alike to us. And indeed we, if Allah wills, will be guided."

71. He said, "He says, 'It is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon her.' " They said, "Now you have come with the truth." So they slaughtered her, but they could hardly do it.


What was the purpose of this sacrifice, and does this mean Prophet Moses was in conversation with God Almighty to get the answers of the questions which these people asked?  Who were these people?

These people were the Israelites (the Jews) soon after the Exodus when they left Egypt and were close to the land of Palestine. 

Yes, apparently Prophet Moses (pbuh) was in communication with Allah Almighty to help him (Prophet Moses) answer the questions put by the people.  But we cannot confirm the precise method of this communication, whether it was direct or through angel Jibrael or through sequential dreams.  Only Allah Almighty knows that best.

The purpose was to test the Israelites who had temporarily gone back to their pagan practice of worshiping the golden calf when Prophet Moses (pbuh) had gone to get the Torah (10 Commandments) from The Almighty. 

The Israelites were commanded to sacrifice a cow to abandon the old practice of worship of the cow which they acquired from the pagan nations of old and their customs.  It was a test of their faith.  If they were true Monotheists and sincerely believed in Allah as their only Deity, then they would readily sacrifice the cow.  But obviously their Faith was not yet strong enough so they tried to evade the sacrifice asking unnecessary questions.  It is opined that the  specific cow they were commanded to sacrifice was the one they had chosen for worship.  That is the reason they tried to delay the sacrifice with needless questions.  But finally they agreed to sacrifice it.
