Some really astounding and ignorant ideas being expressed inthis thread which genuinely need to be corrected for the sake of sincereMuslims so their Eemaan is not damaged.
We as Muslims believe that the good and bad comes from Allah Ta’ala. The Asbaab (means) are subservient and (in fact) meaningless when it comes to the decision of Allah Ta’ala. For example consider the following scenarios:
Why? Because this was the will of Allah Ta’ala.
Dajjal will come with all of its might in science, technology, Jinn, Shaytaan and WILL STILL BE DEFEATED by Sayyiduna Isa (AS) because it is what Allah Ta’ala has decided. In fact, even if the entire creation is to help Dajjal he will still be DEFEATED single handily by Sayyiduna Isa (AS).
This is NOT an argument to either that science and technology comes from Dajjal or has Dajjalic elements.
USSR lost in Afghanistan and America is losing to Taliban and that is STILL NOT an argument against science and technology at all.
Science and Technology is a TOOL and there was a time when Muslim led in this field and took advantages of emerging technologies in warfare, navigation, engineering, transport, medicine etc.
May Allah Ta’ala save us from IGNORANCE!
A TOOL can be used positively or negatively, its situation depends on its usage.
You have to be an IDIOT to believe this! No Muslim has this belief...
In warfare you could have the most advance science, technology and weaponry and you could still be on the losing side due to tactical blunders and errors. Uhud, Vietnam, Afghanistan
OR you could have the most advance science, technology, weaponry, tactics and you could still be on the losing side due to other factors such as German loss to Soviets in the second world war purely because of weather!
If you have an illness and you are provided the most advanced medicine and the medicine has 100% rate of certainty curing the illness it is still SHIRK to have the belief that cure is in the medicine. Majority of medicines neither have certainty nor anywhere near these rates for believing anything of this nature.
As I said, you have to be genuinely STUPID to believe anything like this.
This FORUM is a piece of scientific advancement and technology, it was not around in 2008! Do you think we BELIEVE in Muftisays because we use it!
How STUPID can you get???
You have repeated your past a few times. All Praise be to Allah Ta’ala who gave you Hidayah and may Allah Ta’ala keep you on HIdayah (Ameen).
There is nothing substantive in your posts to respond to.
The interconnectivity and the backbone provided by the Internet gives rise and will give rise to newer technologies.
Twenty years ago it was AOL, in 2005 it was MySpace+, In 2017 it was Google + and there will be many more.
It is the inevitability of capitalism that some companies will survive and some will die.
Once again, nothing substantive to comment upon.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
