"Use Of The Rationale, Use Of Intellect Is Dangerous In Islam …"

Thanks to  via Mullah

Islam stifles mental growth and forbids scientific enquiry:

 “O ye who believe! Ask not questions about things which if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. Some people before you did ask such questions, and on that account lost their faith.” (Surah 5:101-102).

 “The Holy Prophet himself forbade people to ask questions …so do not try to probe into such things.” (The Meaning of the Qur’an, Maududi, vol. III, pgs. 76-77)

 “The prophet was asked about things which he did not like, and when the questioner insisted, the Prophet got angry. (vol. 1, no. 92) The Prophet got angry and his cheeks or his face became red. (vol. 1, no. 91) “Allah has hated you…[for] asking too many questions.” (vol. 2, no. 555; and vol. 3, no. 591, Bukhari’s Hadith commenting on Muhammad’s reaction to hostile questioners.)

It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Apostle, to have any option about that decision. If anyone disobeys Allah and His Apostle, he is indeed on a clearly wrong path. (Surah 33:36-38)

  1. I hope for your sake you understand what is meant, PJG:

    The term rationale may refer to:

    An explanation of the basis or fundamental reasons for something
    A justification or rationalization for something, see theory of justification
    Rationale (clothing), a liturgical vestment worn by clergy, in particular by Bishops, in the Roman Catholic Church which uses full vestments.
    Design rationale, an explicit documentation of the reasons behind decisions made when designing a system or artefact.

    ‘Rational’ defined:

    agreeable to reason; reasonable; sensible: a rational plan for economic development.

    having or exercising reason, sound judgment, or good sense: a calm and rational negotiator.

    being in or characterized by full possession of one’s reason; sane; lucid: The patient appeared perfectly rational.

    endowed with the faculty of reason: rational beings.

    of, pertaining to, or constituting reasoning powers: the rational faculty.

    Chose which one is more accurate before you shoot from the hip!

    However, before we argue over the meaning of “if” I think we are agreed that Islam is anything but rational. And the rationale is…?
