Reason cannot conceive God - Allah

Reason cannot understand God, because:

"He has no intelligeable representation and
the intelligences don't show the way towards him".

laisa lahu mathala ma`qûl
wa lâ dallat `aleihi-l `uqûl


kâna wa lâ makân
wa huwa `ala mâ `aleihi kân

"He was when there was no place,
and He is now such as He has always been." TD-163/4

Postmodernism in a nutshell:

(1) There is no objective truth or reality
therefore => (2)
(2) reality is constructed
therefore => (3)
(3) all comprehensible worldviews are oppressive
therefore => (4)
(4) such worldviews should be deconstructed
therefore => (5)
(5) Deconstructionism is the progressive pulverization of reality
therefore => (1)
(1) ! !


islamic state?

The idea of a nation-state is a modernist idea, not an islamic concept. "The islamic state is essentially a universal state, a state without borders." The muslims do live of course in de-facto nation-states, but they should not accept in principle the division of the world into nations and states. And if "in power their main concern would be more the preservation of the integrity of the borders than the integrity of Islam." (Charles-André Gillis, L'intégrité Islamique)
