Hiren Ledford 3 years

One substance many form is far old Hindu advaita theory..

Mike Gould 3 years

Buddha is based on zeroness theory anyway if you so then you better know Buddhism rejects the notion of a creator deity. Then how yahova is creator?

,Hiren Ledford -- though you are going dot on-- wud advise to go a bit slowly , as the subject is too profound & scientific and given the level of understanding of this group, who are deep down in Dvaitva ( duality ) , it might take a lot of time to delve in Advaitya ..

Actually they always claims formless god so I asked them at least logically they can give ans.

When one has the understanding of up side down Adwaita one ends up misunderstanding whole of the concept of Adwaitic Iswar. I think Abrahamic religious thoughts must revise to correct this error.

Allah is beyond gender, the Creator of the universe does not need to conform to our limited knowledge

Then why all peoples acknowledge allah as HE, this is illogical

Hiren Ledford 3 years

Not illogical, just easier to grasp...

Riaz Gilbert 3 years

Same logic can be used that Allah is a she it is easier to grasp.

Shriram Bates 3 years

If that makes you happy, suppose you live in a matriarchal society..

Riaz Gilbert 3 years

Indeed Bhandari ji we can assume anything for formless subject it can be anything..

Its only our universally patriarchal society which allows us to refer to Allah as He

Riaz Gilbert
R

When you can't objectify you cannot say he or she.. This means formless that means beyond gender and perception then why you call as he why not she? Bcz you never accept female gender as god..

Hiren Ledford 3 years

So if he has no form how will he sit on the throne on judgement day ?

Shriram Bates
S

These are all metaphors,.... Allah is not a bearded old man on throne (nauthibillaah)

Riaz Gilbert 3 years

So then why describe a throne then? And if Allah is formless how will you see him ?

Shriram Bates 3 years

Like I saw before, our limited understanding cannot grasp the true essence of Allah, metaphors only make it easier for us .

Riaz Gilbert 3 years

Good anything I bring up you will say that we cannot question it with our limited understanding so this means you accept that your Allah has made humans in such a way that they can't understand him.

Shriram Bates 3 years

Exactly, we as Muslims have absolutely no qualms when we say we cannot truly know Allah, He created us like that, and we shall know Him only in the hereafter...

If they're formless how can they manifest in reality?

Andrew Kraft
A

Right question

Hiren Ledford 3 years

Going in circle, here...

Riaz Gilbert 3 years

.....like asking the One who created the universe from nothing what is possible and impossible for Him .

Riaz Gilbert 3 years

May be you understanding Allah to be formless might be a flawed human understanding.

Shriram Bates 3 years

Are you even listening to yourself ?... With all due respect...

This is the reason Hindus are not a statue or idol worshiper but Murti Pujak. There is a great difference in this. I am not going to explain but one can google it and have further knowledge.
