Re: Can Someone Answer My Question?

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim My point is that Hurqalya is confirmed by Baha'u'llah and that Hurqalya is not a part of Islam, furthermore, ahadith contradict with the basic elements of Hurqalya. I agree with you that messengers bringing a new revelation can make certain things either kosher or unkosher...

Re: Can Someone Answer My Question?

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim I would like to thank those who have responded to my post. First, I would like to point out that I might be mistaken by having said that Shaykh Ahmad Ahsa'i was the first to teach the belief of Hurqalya, along with Jabulsa and Jabulqa. It has been posted that a philosopher...

Re: Can Someone Answer My Question?

Let me state simply what I mean. Hurqalya is not an Islamic concept. More so, it appears nowhere in Islam that Imam Mahdi (as) resides there. Hurqalya is of Greek origin. This is also true of Jabulsa and Jabulqa. These terms and their meanings were first taught as though they were apart of Islam by ...

Can Someone Answer My Question?

Good day everyone, Baha'u'llah mentions in Kitab-i-Aqdas: "All that thou hast heard regarding Muhammad the son of Hasan - may the souls of all that are immersed in the oceans of the spirit be offered up for His sake - is true beyond the shadow of a doubt, and we all verily bear allegiance unto ...

By altered I mean more along the lines of upgraded. As too in Islam, the Truth can never be altered.

Re: Last Prophet?

I did not mean that God revealed all His knowledge unto mankind. A more descriptive way Islam views Allah is this passage from Nahj al-Balaghah. Imam Ali says, Praise is due to Allah whose worth cannot be described by speakers, whose bounties cannot be counted by calculators and whose claim (to obed...

That is exactly right. It is like a parent who wants to teach their child on how to live a prosperous life, the parent doesn't start teaching the child about writing checks when an infant. The child must mature to a certain level before they learn this information. And eventually it comes to a certa...

Re: Last Prophet?

In Islam they believe that the Mahdi heralds the return of Christ who makes the sharia universal before the day of Judgement. Now logically this is flawed on its face, because why in the world would the Mahdi and Christ come to triumph Islam throughout the world only for the world to end right afte...

Re: Last Prophet?

When Islam refers to the coming of another it is speaking about the Mahdi. Traditions clearly state that the Mahdi will be the ninth descendant of Imam Husayn (as) and his name will be the same as the Holy Prophet's (as). It is said he will be an Imam and not a Prophet. When he appears he will reign...

Well, from reading the post of Baha'u'llah's writings about the "first" and the "last" I conclude that he spends many words to basically explain the Christian tradition in the Book of Revelation where Christ (as) says "I am the Alpha and the Omega". From the posts so fa...

Are you the same Ibn Abu Talib who posts on the Theology Web?

No I am not. Ibn Abu Talib means "son of Abu Talib", and my name is Abu Talib "father of Talib".

But anyway, how can every manifestation be the same when two or more of them can exist at one time?

Re: Who Claimed to be the Mahdi?

Brothers, what comes to mind is that I thought the Baha'i belief was that Baha'u'llah was the "figure" which every founder of religions past had spoken about, like the Christ and the Mahdi. So if the Bab was the Mahdi, more specifically the Twelth Imam (as), then that means Baha'u'llah was...

In Islam it clearly states that Muhammad is the "Seal of the Prophets", or the last prophet. So, how can the Baha'i Faith claim that Muhammad was a manifestation who predicted the coming of Baha'u'llah?

Who Claimed to be the Mahdi?

I began reading about the Baha'i Faith most recently and have come to a point where I am confused. I have read that the Bab claimed that he was the emergence of the Twelth Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, from concealment. Though I have also read that Baha'u'llah was the manifestation spoken about by previo...
