When it comes to Scripture when it comes to Revelation, the guidance from Allah Spano, Tata falls into two categories. One of them is after EDA, and one of them is shiddhi. aptina is theology. Theology is about reality. It's about information about what is real.
And that doesn't change. Okay, so that's where contradictions can happen. If Allah was found to Allah were to say that, you know, let's say alcohol is pure evil, there's nothing good about it. And then a couple pages, couple chapters later, he said, Well, actually, it's kind of good. There's just some good things about it. Yes, that would be a contradiction. If a law said to one, you know, a group of people, there's one guy, or even better if a law said to Moses, there's only one God worship one God, and then come time for Jesus. Allah said that, okay, actually, actually, it's a three person, God, it's a trinity, and there's homeostasis in between the three parts, then this
would be a contradiction, because that's a difference. In reality, it can't be both ways. Either Allah is one or he's three, right? Either. Allah was always three, or he was always one, you can't have it both ways. It can't change. Sharia is different law is different, because law is not about what is real law is about what is your expected interaction with reality. Okay, so if you look at the verses in the Quran that deal with alcohol, there's three of them. And the information about reality that Allah gives doesn't change. Allah says in the second chapter, and so let's have belcarra He says that alcohol, it has some good, but it has, but it has, he said, like the bad
outweighs the good. Okay, that's a statement about reality. It's not a statement about how you should interact with it. And so that reality is true. And the law never contradicts that reality. In the beginning of a snap, when alcohol was permissible, that reality was true. There's some good in it, but it's mostly bad. Then when it was restricted, a law said, Don't come to prayer, drunk and sorts of Nisa. That reality is still true. It's mostly bad, but there's a little bit of good in it. And then when Allah finally incidents have made, and the fifth chapter prohibited it entirely, the reality is still true.
There's a little bit of good in it. But it's mostly bad. Something doesn't people have this misconception something does not have to be pure evil,
in order for it to be not allowed. So Sharia isn't about how we're supposed to interact. The law is about how we're supposed to interact with the reality. And that is dependent upon benefit, benefit for human beings and what is beneficial to human beings can change slightly, somewhat, from time to time and from place to place from the people of Moses, the people who followed him the people who followed Jesus, the people who followed Abraham, the people who follow a lot, all the different prophets that we have in the Koran. They lived in different places. They lived in different times in their Sharia, their laws that they were expected to follow were slightly somewhat different.
And that's fine. But there are key the their theology was always the same. There was only ever one God that they were supposed to worship and submit to, and the prophets that God sent
