What is innovation
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: I have specific doubt regarding Shiya and sunni. I have a freind of shiya and he said about imams who are authentic like..
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, know and believe with absolute conviction that the only people who are absolutely authentic imaams are the chosen and appointed Prophets of the Lord Most High, whom the Lord Creator Himself chooses and appoints as His Messengers to mankind.
All the other imaams other than the Noble Prophets of Allah are chosen and appointed by man.and as is the very nature of man, he is obviously at times prone to good and to error. The only people in creation who can come to mankind and declare that they have been chosen and appointed as imaams are the Noble Prophets of Allah.
Our duty as muslims is to unconditionally obey only Allah and His Messengers. Thus if any man-appointed and chosen imaam will only be obeyed and followed if he obeys Allah and His Messenger.
Your Question: I want to know which translation of Arabic language to English is authentic
Although there are several good translations of the Glorious Quran available in the English language, in our humble opinion the best amongst them are two:
- The Holy Quran by Abdullah Yusuf Ali
- The Meaning of the Quran by Syed Abul Aala Maududi.
Your Question: single arabic word has lot of meaning and how to know the exact meaning of the word. because every individual has his own way of understanding and belief so how to convience on that.
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, it is only natural that each language has its own characteristics, fluency, meanings, and adaptations.and when a phrase or sentence or even a word in one language when translated into another language might not be able to capture its complete or full meanings and fluency of the original languagebut if the translation has been done honoring the context, one can easily depict the true meaning of what is being related.
For example: If one were to say in the English language I will drop you to the airport.the same phrase literally translated into Urdu or Hindi language would be: Main aapko airport me phek dunga!. But any person who has even a basic knowledge of the English language would know and realize that the word drop when used in the context of the sentence does not mean to drop or to throw but rather it means to leave.
Similarly, the Arabic language of the Glorious Quran too has its own nuances, but if translated by one who sincerely fears Allah, its basic message and meanings can be easily transferred to another language so that its message may be comprehended by those who do not understand the Arabic language.
Your Question: Also I want to know whether inovvation in religion is nothing but the different sects which are formed now in islam.
A bida or innovation is something which is invented, innovated, and added to the deen of Islam after the deen was completed on Prophet Mohamed (saws). It especially concerns the rites and rituals of worship, or any deed which was not performed or endorsed by the Messenger of Allah (saws), but was added as a part of the deen after his (sawss) death. It also concerns any innovated deed which one does and believes that by doing this innovated deed, he is eligible to earn more reward from Allah Subhanah.
Your Question: So which one we can identify is better sect
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 171 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr
That Allah's Messenger (saws) said: There
will befall my Ummah exactly all those evils which befell the people of Israel
(Jews and Christians), so much so that
if there was one amongst them who openly committed fornication with his mother,
there will be amongst my Ummah one, who will do the same. And if the people of
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
