the throne of Allah

June 24, 2010

The arsh/ throne of Allah


Missing the point

arr’Rah’maa’nu a’lal ar’shis ta’waa

Classical and medieval tafsir miss the point of this aayah, they  ask:

Where is the throne/arsh?

What is above the throne/arsh?

Does the throne/arsh contain allah, hence is the throne/arsh larger in size than Allah?

Is the throne/arsh stronger then Allah for him to be seated on it?

What is the meaning of istiwaa?

Is it permissible to enquire as to the meaning of this verse?

The Rahmaan has made istiwaa on the throne

My interpretive translation:

The Rahmaan has established the reign of mercy, the new world order of mercy for all.

Tafsir and kalaam really miss the point of this aayah

Halaal industry is GORGING us POOR Folk

June 7, 2010


The   Halaal   Industry  is   really   gorging   us  POOR   FOLK.   “HALAAL”   meat   is   ALWAYS   more  expensive.  Before   Ramzaan   there  is  always  a  shortage   of  chicken  fillets,  etc…

The   Qur’aan   is   CLEAR   that   the  food   of  the  Ahlul  Kitaab   is   HALAAL   for  Muslims.   This  is  a  point  of  departure,  a  muntalaq,  for  ijtihad   which  must  be  expanded.   The  original  verses   have  a  vector,    a    dynamisn   in  them.

the  Halaal  issue  needs  an   UBUNTU  INPUT

human and other suffering compels revelation of quran

March 5, 2010

We   must   see   the   quran    –   its   very   concerns   issuing   from   the   world,   from   society,   from   suffering,   suffering   manufactured   by   powerful   people   and   flung   upon   unsuspecting   powerless   people.

Suffering   makes   the   revelation   of   the   quran   imperative,   it   compels   the   revelation   of  the   quran.

tafsir    and    balagha

 

?? Is   tafsir   an   independent   discipline   or   an area   where   ulama   apply   various   disciplines, analytical   techniques   to   the   quran?   this then   prompts   the   question   –   a   key   discipline   used   in   tafsir   is   balagha,   is balagha   framed   by   kalaam?   Then   a   sunni exegete’s   balagha   will   argue   through   and for   sunni   kalam?   does   this   mean   that   a new   balagha   is   possible   fazlurrahman   malik’s   “islam   and   modernity”   –  passim  –   is an   effort   in   this   regard,
