    Also, conclusive remarks:

    1) Arsh is literal was proved from 39:75(Bmz agreed)

    2) Kursi is literal was proved from 38:34(Bmz agreed)

    3) Both khursi and Arsh were used to denote same object i.e throne in the above verses so kursi and arsh are synonyms and thereby proving arsh as literal proves kursi as literal. Arsh was accepted as literal in 39:75

    SB has concluded the first question, and my vote goes to BMZ. 

    IMO SB did not prove this to be a Quranic contradiction.


    But as I pointed out a few days back, it was not supposed to be a contradiction at all; it was supposed to be an error. Skynightblaze's contention was that the size of throne of Allah is so big that it would be impossible for humans to see the angels moving around the said throne.

    BMZ has been claiming that the word kursi in that particular verse must be taken allegorically without providing any credible reason. Ahmed and Emerald, two of the known native Arabic speakers agreed with SNB's stand that Kursi is to be taken literally. The only person agreeing with BMZ was a new entrant called Mr X (LOL) who claimed to be from Saudi Arabia. I don't think his credibility can be taken as at par with that of Ahmed or Emerald as far as the knowledge of Arabic is concerned. Moreover, SNB has conclusively proven that "Kursi" is literally chair as per the Arabic dictionaries too.

    To conclude, I would say that,

    1. BMZ has not been able to provide a single credible reason for Kursi being allegorical in the verse in contention apart from his personal opinion which has little value of course.

    2. He has been seen by all to be contradicting himself.

    3. His Arabic knowledge has become suspect because of the fact that he failed to write a simple sentence of three-four words in Arabic correctly in his first attempt.

    4. The opinions of known native Arabic speakers go against BMZ even though we all know that Ahmed is sympathetic to BMZ. Ahmed did try to provide an escape route to BMZ by arguing that Allah's throne can be as big as Allah wants, but unfortunately his help was late in coming and by then BMZ had already committed himself in favor of "allegorical" argument.

    I am prepared to enter into a debate with anyone disagreeing with any of the four points I have concluded.

    Rest is up to you friends.

    Look pal

    your scarcastic crap won't really benefit you

    read my comment again you stubborn ignorant and read for yourself that I stated that the Quran is clear for the true believers who do not shirk anything with Allah

    The Quran was clear and easy for me sicne I was 14 years old, mister sarcasim

    Now, I do not claim that I understand 100% of the Quran, however I do understand over 90% witout the help of anything and that should be enough to be classified as clear to me

    now, instead of acting like a jerk by insisting on your saracstic crap, why don't you go and educate yourself a bit

    let me give an example:

    a car means a car

    a boat means a boat

    a pen means a pen

    a throne means a throne

    a chair means a chair

    etc etc

    and that should apply to all languages btw, however it seems you talk a language out of this world, and in that case, don't talk to me or about me, try to talk to the likes of you or about you

    your are dismissed

    Please leave aside your Shenanigans FFI-Style and answer the following question, which I had asked:

    Before I do that, can I have your acknowledgement and confirmation that Arsh means only Kursi or throne?

    If you think and believe that is correct, just write a simple acknowledgement, saying, "Hello, BMZ. I write to confirm that Arsh in Arabic only means a throne or a chair." This confirmation is imperative. I can then take you through the next but short phase.

    Once you write down your answer, I will write down a conclusive summary and you can then either choose to carry on or concede.


    Oh..BMZ. You keep tripping up very badly. Do you even read your opponents' arguments? It cannot be a comprehension problem, hence it can only be an utter unwillingness to understand and acknowledge the valid arguments.

    Quote from: skynightblaze
    Here is what BMz has failed to understand time and again. Someone please take the impossible task of making him understand. The debate is not about what arabic can provide. The main point is whether quran used ARsh and khursi as literal or metaphor. The point is kursi and arsh are both literally used by quran ( Refer points  3 & 4 & 5 of the summary of the debate below)

    Now the question is  are we again required to look whether ArsH in arabic can mean something other than Throne when we have evidence that quran used it literally?

     Even if arabic allows it to be interpreted as metaphorically it doesnt matter because it has already been established that quran used it literally.What matters is how quran used it and not how it can be used in arabic The case is over and we need not go to arabic again.

    Now, I am a literal type of guy, and when I read about the throne of Allah in the Quran, it quickly means for me that Allah has a physicla throne, nothing more and nothing less, now anything more may lead to such metaphorical understandngs which I believe has no merit


    now, instead of acting like a jerk by insisting on your saracstic crap, why don't you go and educate yourself a bit

    let me give an example:

    a car means a car

    a boat means a boat

    a chair means a chair

    Well, but the seal on the heart and eyes and the ears, MUST be taken metaphorically, a child should now that.

    Maybe you should re-read it when you turn 15.

    You?ve tried reading with an open heart. Why not try reading now with an open mind.

    One doesn?t have to read past the first couple pages to grasp the author?s love of metaphors. Veils are not veils, seals are not seals, fires are not fires and clouds are not clouds.

    Does this look like the work of an author trying to be straight-forward and obvious? Of course not. This is creative writing. This is poetry written by poets.

    At least you have the common sense not to accept the hadith collection. It is said that Bukhari had to sort thru 300,000 hadiths? He only determined 2,602 to be authentic, but even those are questionable aren?t they?

    300,000 is a very big number. What does that tell us? It tells us that in the years preceding the death of Mohammed that lots of Arabs loved to make up bullshit and call it devine.

    This is the same community that provided Abu Bakr with the leaves of trees, pieces of wood, parchment or leather, flat stones, and shoulder blades that were to complie into the Quran?

    A competant prophet would have preserved the notes he dictated to the scribes himself wouldn?t he?

    Maybe this makes sense to you because you have an open heart. I however am cursed with an open mind.

    here is a comment I just added on FFI:

    Quote
    Exactly. And I don't see why would any Muslim argue with that?!!!!! Are there indeed Muslims who argue with this?!!!



    There are indeed Muslims who argue with that, I am not one of them though, the Throne and the Chair are literal as far as my understaniding to the Quran and its language

    The Bottom line is this, which I believe is simple enough, yet cannot be comprehended by those kafirs and their fellow Muslims, here it is simply:

    If everything around us including us is made bigger 1000 times, then no one should feel any changes, this is because if I am 5.8 tall, then after being magnified 1000 times, i will still be 5.8 tall, this is because the measuring length of foot has been magnified 1000 times as well

    Same with my weight, I will be exactly the same after getting bigger 1000 times

    And of course it works the other way around, i.e. if I have been made 1000 times smaller as well as everything around me in the heavens and the earth, i won't feel any change

    Such delusion, is indeed real, it is called Relativity, i.e. we really do not know what our real size is in comparison with a datum that is out of this world,

    Now, imagine a basketballer holding his basket ball between his two hands, then think of it as Allah is doing the exact same to the heavens and the earth, i.e. the heavens and the earth (as a ball)  is held between Allah hands, this means that Allah is way too big compared with the size of the heavens and the earth (from His perspective of course),

    With that in mind, then all the following statments will make great literal sense:

    1) Allah is AKBAR, i.e. Allah is bigger than anything
    2) His chair is big enough to encompass the heavens and the earth
    3) Allah is MOHIT (surrounding) everything
    4) Allah is always with us whereever we are

    And many more

    I indeed believe in such valid possibility that is even approved by the theory of relativity

    Salam

    Actually, Allah would not be bigger than "the set/collection of everything that exists" because that would include Allah itself and the World

    and:
    Allah > Allah + World
    would imply:
    World < 0

    And we know the World has definitely size > 0 regardless of how you measure it.

    Pantheism is more coherent than Monotheism about this.
    (i.e. those who consider God = All that exists, do not fall into any contradiction about God being the greatest entity)

    I will try to make it a bit more simpler, in case you got confused.

    "All that exists" is the set or collection of any thing that exists.
    So, if you answer yes to the question "Does X exist?" then X is part of "All that exists".

    Does the World exist? Yes? Then it's included in "all that exists"
    Does Allah exist? Yes? Then it's included in "all that exists"

    I will try to make it another step easier by using your basketball metaphor.

    If Allah is the basketball player and the World is the ball, and nothing else exists...
    Then the whole existence itself is made of player+ball, and the player cannot be greater than existence itself because the player is included IN existence itself, since it exists.

    And that does NOT involve the player being part of the ball.
