Tara's World Of Islam: Disputation
PROHIBITION OF DISPUTATION IN RELIGION © 1995 Al-Haneef Publications If someone comes to debate with you, beware of him. For debating involves argumentation, disputing, seeking to overcome, wrangling and anger. You have been forbidden from all of this. It diverts you both away from the truth. It has not reached us that any of our scholars or people of knowledge argued, debated or disputed. Al-Hasan (al-Basree) said, "The wise man does not argue or seek to overcome with stratagem rather he propagates his wisdom. If it is accepted he praises Allaah and if it is rejected he praises Allaah."[Reported by Abu Nu`aim ibn Hammaad in his Zawaa'id `alaz-Zuhd libnil Mubaarak (no. 30) and Ibn Battah in Ibaanatul-Kubraa (no. 611). A man came to al-Hasan (al-Basree) and said, "I wish to debate with you about the Religion." Al-Hasan replied, "I know my Religion. If you have lost your Religion go out and look for it." [Reported by al-Aajurree in ash-Sharee`ah (p. 57), al-Laalikaa'ee in as-Sunnah (no. 215) and Ibn Battah (no. 586) and it is saheeh.] The Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) heard some people arguing outside his apartment, one of them saying, 'Did not Allaah say so and so?' and the other saying, 'Did not Allaah say so and so?' So he came out angry and said, "Is this what I have ordered you, or is this what I was sent with, that you should set one part of the Book of Allaah against some other parts?" [Reported by Ahmad (2/178, 181 and 196), Ibn Maajah (no. 85), `Abdullaah ibn Ahmad in as-Sunnah (no. 86) and al-Baghawee in Sharhus-Sunnah (1/260). Al-Boosayree declared it saheeh in Zawaa'id Ibn Maajah (1/4) as did >al-Albaanee in Sharh `Aqeedah at-Tahaawiyyah (p. 218)] So he forbade them from argumentation.

LA STORIA DELLA MATEMATICA Indice I più antichi documenti matematici a noi pervenuti consistono nelle tavolette di terracotta provenienti dalla Mesopotamia. Pare risalga ai Sumeri (IV millennio a.C.) il sistema di numerazione sessagesimale ancora oggi in uso per gli angoli e la misura del tempo, e la risoluzione di problemi numerici che noi riconduciamo ad equazioni di primo e secondo grado. La geometria egiziana, secondo alcuni autori greci, ebbe origine dalla misura dei terreni e si è sviluppata anche per altre esigenze della tecnica (edilizia, orientamento degli edifici, idraulica). Matematica e filosofia nel mondo greco hanno inizio con uno stesso personaggio: TALETE DI MILETO , che insieme a PITAGORA I principali esponenti di questa che è definita " l’età eroica della matematica" sono: DEMOCRITO ANASSAGORA e ZENONE Il personaggio che ha caratterizzato la matematica nel IV secolo a.C. è PLATONE EUDOSSO DA CNIDO e ARISTOTELE Al 300 a. C. risale il più autorevole manuale di matematica di tutti i tempi : gli "Elementi" di EUCLIDE , modello di rigore e perfezione didattica insuperato per secoli.

The brothers banu musa who lived in the 9th century may be said to be the firstoutstanding Muslim geometers while their contemporary Thabit ibn Qurrah used
The Muslim mind has always been attracted to the mathematical sciences in accordance with the "abstract" character of the doctrine of Oneness which lies at the heart of Islam. The mathematical sciences have traditionally included astronomy, mathematics itself and much of what is called physics today. In astronomy the Muslims integrated the astronomical traditions of the Indians, Persians, the ancient Near East and especially the Greeks into a synthesis which began to chart a new chapter in the history of astronomy from the 8th century onward. The Almagest of Ptolemy, whose very name in English reveals the Arabic origin of its Latin translation, was thoroughly studied and its planetary theory criticized by several astronomers of both the eastern and western lands of Islam leading to the major critique of the theory by Nasir al-Din Al-Tusi and his students, especially Qutb al-Din Al-Shirazi, in the 13th century. Astronomical observations also had practical applications including not only finding the direction of Makkah for prayers, but also devising almanacs (the word itself being of Arabic origin). The Muslims also applied their astronomical knowledge to questions of time-keeping and the calendar. The most exact solar calendar existing to this day is the Jalali calendar devised under the direction of 'Umar Khayyam in the 12th century and still in use in Persia and Afghanistan. The Muslims also excelled in geometry as reflected in their art. The brothers Banu Musa who lived in the 9th century may be said to be the first outstanding Muslim geometers while their contemporary Thabit ibn Qurrah used the method of exhaustion, giving a glimpse of what was to become integral calculus. Many Muslim mathematicians such as Khayyam and al-Tusi also dealt with the fifth postulate of Euclid and the problems which follow if one tries to prove this postulate within the confines of Euclidian geometry.

The acquisition and adaptation of Greek knowledge by scientists working in the Arab empire became crucial to the rediscovery of Aristotle by Western Europe in the 12th century, and ultimately to the European Renaissance. After the 'Umayyad dynasty collapsed in the 740s and the caliphate was assumed by Abu 'l-'Abbas (founder of the 'Abbasid dynasty, in 749). The 'Abbasids received much support from Persian Muslims who had resented the dominance of the Arabs under the 'Umayyads. However, they were themselves an Arabic family, the language of government continued to be Arabic, the language of religion had to be Arabic. The most influential Persian supporters of the 'Abbasid takeover were the Barmakid family, led by Khalid ibn Barmak, who became governor of Mesopotamia under the second 'Abbasid caliph, al-Mansur. They were the sponsors of the enigmatic Jabir ibn Hayyan, who synthesized the new science of alchemy from a mixture of Pythagorean ideals and Indian and Persian mysticism. When the Barmakids fell from power in 804, Jabir fell from court favour as well. Al-Mansur founded a new capital for the caliphate at

Journey of al-Mahdi
Apprehending lest the sons of dai Abu Muhammad and the Qarmatians would resort to the violent and stormy operations, al-Mahdi gave orders to prepare for a journey. He took with him only his son Abul Kassim, Jafar bin Ali, the Chamberian, Ibn Barka and Tayyib, the tutor of Abul Kassim. He abandoned his residence with all that it contained: precious carpets, clothing, property, servants and also the family of his uncle and brother, male and female. He entrusted all his wealth, with his house, wares and granaries, to Hence, al-Mahdi quited Salamia in a thick of insecure milieu in 286/899. He relinquished his house at the time of the evening prayer, unnoticed by any one and travelled the whole night escorted by an Arab and thirty other horsemen. He arrived at Hims in the morning. Sending back the Arab escort from Hims, al-Mahdi's caravan first left for Damascus when Haroon bin Khamruya bin Ahmad bin Tulun (283- 292/896-904) was the then governor of Syria. They continued to travel whole of that day and the next and arrived in Tiberias on the third. The long journey from Syria was beset with great perils, therefore he continued without a halt in Tiberias and went to Palestine and alighted in Ramla, and putting up with the governor, who was his devout follower. Ramla was a town, 25 miles from Jerusalem and on the road between Syria and Egypt, covering an area of a square mile. Its chief gates were Darb Bir al-Askar, Darb Masjid Annaba, Darb Bait al-Makdis, Darb Bila, Darb Ludd, Darb Yafa, Darb Misr and Darb Ajun. Ramla was rich in fruits, especially figs and palms. It was famous for comfortable baths, commodious dwellings and broad streets.

ISMAIL BIN JAFAR SADIK (148-158/765-775)
Abu Muhammad Ismail, surnamed al-Wafi was born in Medina between 100/719 and 103/722. Ismail (Listening by God) is also known as an absolute Lord (az-azbab-i itlaq). He was born by the first wife of Jafar Sadik, named Fatima. According to "Sharhu'l Akhbar" (comp. 350/960), the mother of Ismail was Fatima bint Hasan bin al-Hussain bin Ali, but Ahmad Inaba (d. 825/1422) writes in "Umadatu't-talib"that she was Fatima bint al-Hussain al-Athram bin al-Hasan bin Ali. Shahrastani (1076-1153) writes in his "Kitab al-milal wa'l nihal"that during the lifetime of Fatima, Jafar Sadik never got another marriage like Muhammad with Khadija and Ali with Fatima. Hatim bin Imran bin Zuhra (d. 498/1104) writes in "al-Usul wa'l Ahakam" that, "Ismail was the most perfect, the most learned and the most excellent of the sons of Jafar as-Sadik." He is also reported to have well steeped in the esoteric interpretation of the Koran. Ismail was declared many times by his father as his successor, and said on an occasion, while Ismail was present, according to "Asraru'n-Nutaqa" (comp. 380/990) that "He is the Imam after me, and what you learn from him is just the same as if you have learnt it from myself." It is also related that when the health of Imam Jafar Sadik became impaired, he summoned the most trusted amongst his followers, and those members of his family who were alive, and did what his predecessors had done, i.e., he handed over the authority of Imamate to Ismail. It must be known that the most trusted followers of Imam Jafar Sadik had supported Ismail, notably Abu Hamza Thabit bin Abu Sufiya Dinar as-Samali (d. 150/767), a mawla (freed slave) from Kufa. Jafar Sadik is reported to have said that Abu Hamza was in his time like Salman al-Faras in his own time (Abu Hamza fi zamani'hi mithl Salman fi zamani'hi).

For quite some time now the discussion "The end of the world" has been brought to the fore, and there are some who believe this "inevitable act of fate" to be very near. We the Muslims, however, believe that the exact date of its occurrence is known only to Allah. We also believe that certain major events and advents will have to come to pass before the destruction of this world. One of those advents is that of the coming of the vicerengent of Allah, Mahdi, on earth, with regards to whom Nabi has informed us that he will be born a few years before the return of Eesa Alaihis Salam. His mother's name is Aminah and his Father is Abdullah.
Alas. the Shi'ah have outrightly contradicted Nabi's description of the Mahdi, and instead, painted a picture of an immodest, vile and ruthless man, who will "strip Abubakr and Umar of their kafn and burn their bodies."
Having listened to this lecture on cassette, I have attempted to translate and compile it, which I now humbly present with the hope that readers will find clarity with regard to questions such as "Who is the Mahdi/ twelfth Imam of the Shi'ah?", "What is his mission?", and why is it imperative to the Shi'ah to concoct a Mahdi who is so different form the Mahdi of the Muslims?"

Hadith From Number 521 ) Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
) Narrated Anas bin Malik: We arrived at Khaibar, and when Allah helped His Apostle to open the fort, the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtaq whose husband had been killed while she was a bride, was mentioned to Allah's Apostle. The Prophet selected her for himself, and set out with her, and when we reached a place called Sidd-as-Sahba,' Safiya became clean from her menses then Allah's Apostle married her. Hais (i.e. an 'Arabian dish) was prepared on a small leather mat. Then the Prophet said to me, "I invite the people around you." So that was the marriage banquet of the Prophet and Safiya. Then we proceeded towards Medina, and I saw the Prophet, making for her a kind of cushion with his cloak behind him (on his camel). He then sat beside his camel and put his knee for Safiya to put her foot on, in order to ride (on the camel).
) Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet stayed with Safiya bint Huyai for three days on the way of Khaibar where he consummated his marriage with her. Safiya was amongst those who were ordered to use a veil.
) Narrated Anas: The Prophet stayed for three rights between Khaibar and Medina and was married to Safiya. I invited the Muslims to his marriage banquet and there was neither meat nor bread in that banquet but the Prophet ordered Bilal to spread the leather mats on which dates, dried yogurt and butter were put. The Muslims said amongst themselves, "Will she (i.e. Safiya) be one of the mothers of the believers, (i.e. one of the wives of the Prophet ) or just (a lady captive) of what his right-hand possesses?" Some of them said, "If the Prophet makes her observe the veil, then she will be one of the mothers of the believers (i.e. one of the Prophet's wives), and if he does not make her observe the veil, then she will be his lady slave." So when he departed, he made a place for her behind him (on his camel) and made her observe the veil.

Astronomy and Mathematics Part I Part II Part III I The Arabs are before all else the pupils of the Greeks; their science is a continuation of Greek science which it preserves, cultivates, and on a number of important points develops and perfects. One of the greatest of them, al-Biruni, said in considering all the conditions necessary for scientific research-early education, knowledge of languages, long life, the possession of means sufficient to enable one to make journeys and acquire books and instruments: ‘all these conditions are rarely found in a single individual, especially in our day. That is why we ought to confine ourselves to what the ancients have dealt with and endeavour to perfect what can be perfected. The middle way is in all things the most praiseworthy; and he who attempts too much ruins himself and his estate’. Al-Biruni is here, however, obviously too modest; for with this limited ambition the Arabs have really achieved great things in science; they taught the use of ciphers, although they did not invent them, and thus became the founders of the arithmetic of everyday life; they made algebra an exact science and developed it considerably and laid the foundations of analytical geometry; they were indisputably the founders of plane and spherical trigonometry which, properly speaking, did not exist among the Greeks. In astronomy they made a number of valuable observations. They preserved for us in their translations a number of Greek works, the originals of which have been lost: three books of the Conics of Apollonius, the
