comment Among the gentiles, why Job and Bilaam were recognized as prophets whereas Muhammad was not?
@Maxood not sure what you mean, but the halacha is drawn from the talmud

comment Light in the Room during Marital Relations
@DoubleAA the question is whether there are certain circumstances where it is permitted to see one's spouse during relations. i dont see how any of those questions address this point in the least.

comment Light in the Room during Marital Relations
@DoubleAA not at all similar. there is during the day with dark coverings so that nothing is visible.

comment Why was an imperfect world instructed in capital punishment?
@msh210 "the application of such a punishment can only be carried out by humans whose system of justice is nearly perfect" - I interpreted this to mean the system precribed by the torah is not perfect

@DoubleAA no. we know more or less what will happen as the rambam explains there. we're just not sure about the details. return of prophecy is part of the final redemption (Geulah). how about you bringing a source that it is separate from the Geulah.

God clearly spoke to Job. what do you mean by "Job was not a prophet"

we cannot know the exact details of this as the Rambam says chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/1188357/jewish/… but we will see the prophecies being fulfilled such as the ingathering of the exiles to israel. Certainly someone like muhamad who went around beheading people who did not believe in him, (and who ISIS is following his example today) does not fit the bill.

i think the muslims claim the sages lied so this does not really answer from their perspective. would be improved to add some verses on this
