How did i miss this little gem

How can the rather pessimistic Alawi belief of predestination, as described in the Alawi book Kitab al-Usus (among other many other writings), be reconciled with considering everybody a child of God?

Well let me paraphrase this: How can the rather pessimistic belief of al-qada' wa al-qadr aka predistination as described in the Arabic book called al-Qur'an among othe many other writings be reconciled with considering everybody a child of god? Now you tell us

See? your comment is ridiculous

Snip nonsense

I would like to know how modern day Alawi's think of the fact that the Divine is said to have manifested itself before multiple nations as the Creatures of Light

Why do you want to know? But speaking of wanting to know how can a modern Muslim think about the claim that his so called prophet flew on a winged horse aka al-buraq? does that make sense our dear Treize?

(Ahl-e Nur)

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic it is اهل النور and do us a favor stick to Urdu

are supposedly spread among all nations. Yet modern day Alawi's are Arabs

No they are not they are Arabic speakers big difference. You? you are a wannabe Arab right?

(and a few Kurds and Turks who were allowed to convert long ago).

What are you talking about?

So I would like to know how they really think of non-Alawi's,

And i would like to know what do Muslims think of them Joos and nasarra and your ancestors the Hindus you tell us

if only the people who are Alawi now are the ahl-e nur

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic it is اهل النور

or maybe if they consider the possibility there are others besides them among other nations. If not, how can you be so sure that the people who have converted to the Alawi religion in the past were these Ahl-e Nur? And how can you be so sure they were the only ones, considering the fact the religion is totally closed today?

You need to get a life our dear Treize
