Re: Being a Baha'i

Dear Abu Talib, I am ethnic Russian (from Russian Orthodox family, though not very religious) from Uzbekistan. I became Baha'i in 1993 at age of 22. My great-grand mother told me that there was Moses, after Him Jesus, after Him Muhammad. So, I always thought that there must be Someone after Muhammad...

Re: Last Prophet?

one more: 95 Say: Allah speaketh truth . So follow the religion of Abraham , the upright. He was not of the idolaters. (The Qur'an (Pickthall tr), Sura 3 - The Family Of Imran) Do we give up our religion to follow the religion of Abraham? No. But we do obey God’s truth: we wholeheartedly follow the ...

Re: Last Prophet?

We are not aware that God has ever altered His religion the "Eternal Truth" can never be altered nor can guidance ever cease By altered I mean more along the lines of upgraded. As too in Islam, the Truth can never be altered. Let us clarify, religion has two parts: Spiritual/moral (Eterna...

Re: Last Prophet?

Knowledge of God has no limits. As such no paper (or digital) book can contain all of His Knowledge. And we find confirmation on it in Qur'an: 18:109 Say: "If the ocean were ink (wherewith to write out) the words of my Lord, sooner would the ocean be exhausted than would the words of my Lord, e...

Re: 95-day engagement rule also applies to half-persians?

This law stipulates that the time between the engagement and the marriage should not exceed 95 days. Basically it is aimed at practices in certain societies where such time could be extremely long (years), to the extent that it undermines the purpose of the engagement as the announcement of the comi...

Re: Last Prophet?

... The meaning of " Aaron succeeded Moses as a Prophet, Ali was to be an Imam " is important because Muhammad was saying that divine guidance was to continue although there will be no more revelation (the revealing of truth), since Islam what for all of Mankind and the entire truth had b...

From Qor'an 15 4 Never did We destroy a population that had not a term decreed and assigned beforehand. 5 Neither can a people anticipate its term, nor delay it. 6 They say: "O thou to whom the Message is being revealed! truly thou art mad (or possessed)! 7 "Why bringest thou not angels to...

Re: Last Prophet?

Yes, in a sense that all of them are of the same nature, but my point when Abu Talib asked about the Hadith where Muhammad says that there no more messenger after Him, I would take it as "not immediate after" only.

Re: Last Prophet?

Baha'u'llah says in Kitab-i-Aqdas that there will be no messenger after Him. But in the following one thousand years. I think it is related to the question of Abu Talib. So, if you see the perpetual mechanism of sending guidance from God through Apostles-Messengers then all those moments of the seal...

Re: Last Prophet?

I did not find a place in Qur'an where it says "from now one there is no need for any guidance from God to be sent EVER" On contrary, in many places it is emphasized that the Guidance from God is a non stop process. In 17.97 - Say, "If there were settled, on earth, angels walking abou...
