Yes..follow our Logic and NOT the Ulama who says can't follow logic
(Date written : 04 May 2015)
1) If there is one Teaching from the so called Scholars or Ulama that is so ABSURD, so WILD, so ASTRAY and so FALSIFIED is this statement :
"ISLAM cannot follow Logical Thinking"
"Yes, we can think, but still there are teachings of ISLAM that our mind cannot understand, goes beyond our limited capability of our mind and thus you must FOLLOW whatever the PROMINENT ULAMA have concluded for you".
2) Those 2 sentences are a BLATANT LIE and reach the TIP of the TOP of STUPIDITY. Stupid is another word for NOT KNOWING.
We called people stupid because they dont know.
3) First and foremost, if ISLAM is Not Logic, and DOES NOT MAKE SENSE, why do we have to FOLLOW or EMBRACE such religion. In The Quran, the first and foremost things to FIND the TRUTH is by Thinking and Get the LOGIC that makes SENSE to us. Why do we have to FOLLOW something that dont make sense?
There are many verses in The Quran that ask the people :
Al-An'aam : 50
قُل لَّآ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ عِندِى خَزَآئِنُ اللَّهِ وَلَآ أَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ وَلَآ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ إِنِّى مَلَكٌ ۖ إِنْ أَتَّبِعُ إِلَّا مَا يُوحٰىٓ إِلَىَّ ۚ قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِى الْأَعْمٰى وَالْبَصِيرُ ۚ أَفَلَا تَتَفَكَّرُونَ
● .." Say, "Is the blind equivalent to the seeing? Then will you not give THOUGHT (TAFAKKARUN) ?" ●
As-Saaffaat : 138
وَبِالَّيْلِ ۗ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ
● And at night. Then will you not use REASON / THINKING (TA'QILUN)? ●
Yaseen : 62
وَلَقَدْ أَضَلَّ مِنكُمْ جِبِلًّا كَثِيرًا ۖ أَفَلَمْ تَكُونُوا تَعْقِلُونَ
● And he had already led ASTRAY from among you much of creation, so did you not use REASON (TA'QILUN)? ●
Yaseen : 68
وَمَن نُّعَمِّرْهُ نُنَكِّسْهُ فِى الْخَلْقِ ۖ أَفَلَا يَعْقِلُونَ
● And he to whom We grant long life We reverse in creation; so will they not UNDERSTAND (YA'QILUN)? ●
As-Saaffaat : 154
مَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ
● What is [wrong] with you? How do you make JUDGEMENT (TAHKUMUN) ? ●
If we dont THINK and get CLEAR REASONING with ourselves, how can we make JUDGEMENT ?
4) In fact, Allah punished people who dont use their thinking or Reasoning :
Al-Mulk : 10
وَقَالُوا لَوْ كُنَّا نَسْمَعُ أَوْ نَعْقِلُ مَا كُنَّا فِىٓ أَصْحٰبِ السَّعِيرِ
● And they will say, "If only we had been listening or REASONING (NA'QILU), we would not be among the companions of the BLAZE." ●
Yunus : 100
وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَن تُؤْمِنَ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَيَجْعَلُ الرِّجْسَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ
● And it is not for a soul to believe except by permission of Allah, and HE WILL PLACE DEFILEMENT UPON THOSE WHO DO NOT THINK / USE REASON (YA'QILUN). ●
5) What will happened if we dont use our Logic and Reason ?
We definitely become the Follower of Assumptions, and we become Astray.
If we follow what the so called Ulama (from any of the SECTS or Groups) without Reason, we dedinitely far away from the Truth :
Al-An'aam : 116
وَإِن تُطِعْ أَكْثَرَ مَن فِى الْأَرْضِ يُضِلُّوكَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَخْرُصُونَ
● And if you obey MOST of those upon the earth, they will MISLEAD you from the way of Allah. They follow not except ASSUMPTION, and they are not but falsifying. ●
An-Najm : 28
وَمَا لَهُم بِهِۦ مِنْ عِلْمٍ ۖ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ ۖ وَإِنَّ الظَّنَّ لَا يُغْنِى مِنَ الْحَقِّ شَيْـًٔا
● And they have thereof NO KNOWLEDGE. They FOLLOW not except ASSUMPTIONS, and indeed, assumption avails not against the TRUTH at all. ●
6) Why the so-called Ulama says so - do not follow your Logic ?
The Sad truth is, they dont have enough knowledge but think they have enough.
They have led astray by Syaitan.
They want people to follow them; instead of listening to other people that can give better answers than theirs.
7) Nonetheless, there is one flipside to the Coin.
Do not call yourselves of following the Logic or Man of Logic, if you dont UNDERSTAND things comprehensively.
RABBI ZIDNI 'ILMI.
My Lord, grant me more Knowledge.
