Mac Haque: 4 October near Dhaka
DEBATE/DISCUSS: With all due respect to everybody's 'religious sentiments' - I just need to know from any (or many) of my enlightened friends here on Facebook if they can cite me one verse from the Qu'ran that mentions specifically that it is obligatory on all Muslims to slaughter an innocent animal EVERY YEAR during Eid Al Adha to appease Allah? Please no references or argument points from Hadith etc.....stay strictly to the Qu'ran. Thanks
Brings us to 'follow the Messenger'..is it a singular or plural expression? I thought it was plural. From Abraham down to Muhamad (pbuh) all were messengers - yet the finality of the Messages has been left to human introspection. That is the beauty of the Qu'ran. I am more than confident in 1500 years what we have gathered from/about the Qu'ran will not exactly be the same in the coming 1500. Fundamentally I disagree with the words of the Hadith's cause despite the seeming 'scientific' retinue, it is a shame that 6 Hadith books will give you 6 different interpretations of the same thing!
