The comment follows:

what makes this the “true Conclusion”. Allah says: فلا تزكوا أنفسكم> Do not praise yourselves. هو أعلم بمن التقى> He (Allah) knows best who is most pious.
This further proves my comment that these so called “Ulama” seek evidence to prove their own opinions correct and NOT to seek the truth.
Today they will attack Quraishah, tomorrow they will attack Umme Atiyyah RA. It is becoming more clear that these so called Ulama are not calling to the deen of Muhamad SAW but rather to their own warped ideology.

1. Emotional rant No 1 by the commenter

We would like to ask you what makes the initial article worthy of being called a conclusion in the first place? Has the writer categorically stated the views of most of the Sahaabah at least? Has the writer even bothered to open a single book in penning the so-called “conclusion’ as named by herself? What has given the writer the right to insinuate finality on the matter?

We have clearly proven that the writer has demonstrated a clear lack of understanding of the Arabic language,the principles of Fiqh & Hadeeth etc. We care very little for the titles of articles, however when an unqualified individual intentionally misquotes & misleads the Muslim Ummah makes statements of Shariah proclaiming with bold finality “now each has the knowledge to decide” we definitely do take umbrage. We do not have much time to waste on such useless rants so please answer the following query:

Please indicate to us how the naming of the article makes the academic argument weaker in any way?

In any event, your understanding seems to have halted after reading the title, ‘The True Conclusion’. Have you even read Quraysha Ismail Sooliman’s article, ‘The Conclusion: Now each has the knowledge to decide’? Did you perhaps forget to read the first line of the series of articles published by Muslimality?

When you have taken the time to understand the message contained in both articles, Muslimality will endeavour to educate you further

2. Your translation reads “Do not praise yourselves”

Do please inform us where this translation originates from. We can clearly prove the fact that this is another emotionally charged statement clearly lacking any academic substance.

Do inform us how the word praise is extracted from the wording of the aayah in question. We have clearly proven that the vast majority of those who support such deficient “scholarship” have no understanding or mastery of the most basic step towards the attainment of true scholarship i.e Arabic. You seem to be clearly proving our point.

Let us assume however that your translation is correct, where have we praised ourselves? Is your ego hurt that much by the fact that we have entitled our refutation “The True Conclusion” that you now resort to misquoting Aayaat of Qur’aan?We see no need to attach our “qualifications” to articles we publish nor do we desire any sort of praise from the creation.

Let us assume once again that we have praised ourselves, how on earth does that detract from the clear-cut academic proofs we have presented?

3.Your comment reads ” This further proves my comment that these so called “Ulama” seek evidence to prove their own opinions correct and NOT to seek the truth.”

When have we labeled ourselves as Ulama? What do we benefit from enforcing our own “opinions”? Another emotional rant to which we shall pay no heed. Please refute our statements with academic truths.

How do you advocate the seeking of the truth when you respond with nothing but emotion? Is it a psychological truth which you are in search of? Have you mastered the basic sciences of Shariah? Why the Ulama-bashing? Is it something you usually do when confronted with factual evidence?

4. Your comment reads “Today they will attack Quraishah, tomorrow they will attack Umme Atiyyah RA. It is becoming more clear that these so called Ulama are not calling to the deen of Muhamad SAW but rather to their own warped ideology.”

We have pointed out clear-cut academic errors in an article posted on a variety of public platforms. When a smear against the Shariah is made in public it will be replied to in public. We have not in any way attacked Quraisha, what we have attacked is the misquoting,fabrications & half-truths which the article penned by her is replete with.

We are Muslims, we do not attack Sahaaba. More emotional rants from your side which serve to do nothing but further confirm the fact that nobody has anything academic to say on this matter.

We advise you to respect the name of Nabi Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa Sallam and type out the Durood in full. TYPING “SAW” IS DISRESPECTFUL TO NABI SALLALLAHU ALAIHI WA SALLAM. One who quotes aayat (albeit with manipulated translations) should pay attention to this.

We are not calling to our own “ideology”, we are merely presenting the truth. The clearest proof of the fact that we have presented the truth is that you have managed to respond to an academic argument with nothing but emotion. Please do prove us wrong academically.

We have written well over 18-20 pages thus far,replete with solid academic proof and you come up with this? You cannot be serious.
