Daniel Haqiqatjou vs Apostate Ridwaan Debate Review (Part 1)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the next few posts, I will be reviewing select portions of the four and a half hour live stream discussion that took place between Daniel Haqiqatjou and the apostate Ridwaan. In particular, I will be reviewing those parts of the debate where additional arguments that Daniel could have advanced occurred to my mind, and I thought it would worthwhile to share, inshaAllah.

A Daily Checklist Based on the Prophet’s Ramadan Sermon

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I recently went over some versions of the Prophet’s khutbah welcoming the month of Ramadhan. In it, he (s) mentions various advices and commands for the believers to take note of during this month. However, it is hard to keep track of them, so I’ve compiled them into a numbered checklist. I will be trying, inshaAllah, to review this checklist daily and try to tick off as many boxes as I can so that this month will be as blessed as possible. Please comment below if you will be joining me on this journey so that we can keep each other accountable. If you have not read the full sermon before, please do before viewing the summary below, as the Prophet (s) mentions important details not mentioned here for brevity’s sake. Continue Reading

There Will Be No Winner in the Daniel Haqiqatjou – Yaqeen Beef

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I’ve seen inaccurate portrayls both in Daniel Haqiqatjou & Friends’ recent article on Yaqeen Institute and in responses to their piece. I’m not sure why people can’t steelman their opponents instead of strawmanning them. It is very disappointing to see. Continue Reading

Let’s Be Honest about the ComicSkeptic vs Saboor Ahmed Debate

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

  يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَدَاءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ ۚ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقِيرًا فَاللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا ۖ فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُوا ۚ وَإِن تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرًا – 4:135 Continue Reading

Quranic Evidence that Knowledge is a Gradation

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In a recent discussion with a friend, we were discussing whether knowledge in the Quran was something that in principle is equally accessible to all, or whether it is in principle graduated (i.e. there are levels to knowledge which only chosen people can reach.) Of course, we all recognize that there are obstacles to gaining knowledge, but are these obstacles merely accidental – i.e. not finding the time to study Arabic full time, or is there something more essential going on?

The “Atheists Are More Moral” Argument

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I’ve often heard the argument that atheists are more moral; indeed the only ones who are truly moral. Why you make ask? Well, because religious believers only do good deeds for the sake of heaven or from fear of hell, or otherwise to get something from God, rather than doing good for goodness sake. Continue Reading

Is Theistic Evolution Compatible With Islam? An Analysis of the Philosophical Issues

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Recent controversy has emerged after Dr. Shadee Elmasry criticized Dr. Mohamed Ghilan’s “leanings” towards the theory of evolution regarding the creation of Nabi Adam (as). Dr. Ghilan, however, views evolution as a process which Allah swt started and guides. Continue Reading

Epstein’s Death Was Certainly a Conspiracy

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

As I’m sure you’re all aware, Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire with a private pedophile island has died while in prison. The official story would have us believe that one of the most powerful men in the world, who regularly rubbed shoulders with the levers of power internationally – inviting them over to his pedophile island – happened to commit suicide while on suicide watch and the camera watching his cell “malfunctioned.” Yup, that’s the grand story rolled out to us all.
