It is so plain to know why the concept of God haunts us so much. It is a connect deep within. This is precisely the reason why: Even if human upbringing is done in seclusion to the found cultures having to discuss the know of God; yet his reflection concerning God is inevitable. The questioner explores towards our beginnings and no amount of supplement theories are potent to put it at rest. As is evident in Dr. Richard Dawkins’s reflection on- an encounter with God if it turns out to be for him after he dies.Read more
The severe storms that we are getting to witness aren’t just the tail-end of a deformed-climate model. If it was so perhaps high-energy Earthquakes hadn’t followed suit in similar exhibition, as it stands clearly explainable that these two sources of energy dissipation are miles unallied.Read more
Strong-willed people who can defeat respective potential to arrogance will never miss-out on this equation to construct faith: if they are at the brink of dropping it; before, the risen outcry of pseudo-science rhetoric. A little reflection on two great historical figures Christ and Muhammad, blessings of God on them, implies logical-reasoning as the first step in achieving- Unfailing faith in Almighty God. Arriving at faith owing to logical reasoning is an inexhaustible area to deal with. But the focus of this article is to elucidate the important relation between Christ and Muhammad that bears the impetus to deliver faith for an agnostic mind.Read more
Domestic violence is a societal problem in many countries. But in the Muslim world it is divinely ordained and justified by the Quran, claims wikiislam. Islamophobia of this nature to tarnish and vandalise Quran has been an old strategy. But the evidential findings of human behaviour are enough to scrap those files. Why did God in Quran order wife-beating while the Western’s suffer the same syndrome without divine ordinance?Read more
Democratic civil discourses known as Shurah (mutual consultations), is the essence of the Quranic teachings ordained for Mankind. Westerners, define their successes by these principles, although Islam in Western countries did not partake in bricking it. The Quranic concept of democratic civil discourses known as ‘Shurah (mutual consultations)’ is emphatically appreciative of a multi cultural conglomerate, clearly accommodative of dissenting religious beliefs and expressly sensitive to peoples preferences but contextually non secular in nature. An entire chapter is enshrined in it exhorting people to equity, mutual consultation and appraisal.Read more
In relation to building a Multi-Faith Association in my opinion there is no parallel way to what God admonishes for respectful coexistence of humans that there is no assurance of success in the hereafter based on one’s identity alone. Or belonging to a specific faith group does not qualify us to receive the best in the life to come. The striving (Jihad) for self-elation from the vices and known-lows of human nature perhaps will only guarantee security before the Lord of the worlds.
Quran iterates a law from God to mankind, that if any believes in God alone as the provider of life and death: thus, frees himself from inventing newer gods and then graduates to practice righteousness in his life. In which case, he can hope for a good bargain and he can be sure that God is loving him- regardless of his named identity or non-subscription to any faith.Read more
Question 1- In biological mutations how did some species evolve with inter-dependency and some with in-dependency concerning nourishment of their offspring post-natal period?
Question 2- How did their instincts even align to observe the change of offspring needing nourishment? In other words how capable are random genetic mutations aided by natural selection to induce responsibilities to wean & care toward offspring?Read more
What does it take for God to drive severe climate- A clear violation of His laws. Which is very complex, but needs to be studied and understood to avoid similar fates of former people. Then, as they stand violated God issues a command and the climate begins to form to overwhelm the target. In case of Thamud it took 3 days to arrange the means and as enormous clouds overshadowed them. Then from the midst of this gloom a thunderbolt jolted them arresting their lives and sparing none of those who transgressed.Read more
To be precise the context before the verse 26 is further evidence that these words do mean to refer to their abilities to perceive weather phenomenon. The verse 24 indicates the 'Aad saw and perceived the clouds to give good rainfall but then God’s purpose to destroy was realised on them.Read more
For ‘Aad the weather had turned severely violent. If we were to experience that today in any of the regions on Earth, we will be sure to attribute its severity to Global Warming and greenhouse effect. But nothing of it was the subject of their discussions. They saw it trailing in the sky as the clouds that will profit them but alas! God best describes the stealth despite their abilities to weather forecast. Even to this day with the state of the art, modern technology we are often frustrated by our inconsistent weather predictions as we are surprised almost every often.Read more
But, the premise that 1°C rise in global temperature is solely responsible for violent weather is questionable. Storms and other inflictions are from God. God would still send it our way despite temperatures plummeting to historic global normal.Read more
“It is not about stopping the boats or deterring people smugglers but it is about bringing to end the excruciating state crimes against a people that is causing large scale displacements.” Don’t they learn from the Atheist (strong ones), as they maintain silent attitude over issues concerning human depravity in case they are choosing not be altruistic or as they don’t stand out for their advocacy: Pauline could keep quiet similarly. Faith isn’t merely via advancing lip service. It won’t be praised by Almighty God. It is expected out of us to bring forth good and conduct rightly-with concerning others. The fact is mostly Australians don’t even believe in karma, scientifically advanced materialism has superseded the belief system by-far in greater measures…Read more
But accordingly, on a program called the Jewish voice on God-TV. Data aired few years prior to the culmination of rebellion in Syria foretold dire happenings to come. It revealed that the Zionists aimed to reduce the Arabs to infighting in eventual hopes to realise the Biblical view of a greater-Israel. That would extend beyond Syrian territories well into Iraq and up to the river Euphrates. Thus, the Saudi royal’s controlled religious machinery seated in Madinah have acted in sincerity to this agenda generating the cause of Jihad in the Muslim world to fight the fellow Muslims. If Saddam .H was at cross-roads that permitted them to aid the USA-led coalition for invasion for black gold more than any humanitarian liberation so did every other neighbouring Kingdom that dissented has come under attack. B. Al-Asad in Syria didn’t deserve rebellion any less than the Royal Kingdom in Saudi that is due to deserve. But for the folly of the Muslim world led by Salafis and puritans the Muslim life continues to limbo under stake. Sunni Arabs are only marshalled to infighting and fighting the Shias perhaps merely for a puritanical Salafi view.Read more
Per many critics Quran contains numerous scientific and historical errors and to them it reflects a pre-scientific, 7th century view of the natural world. Unlike the claims of orientalist given to Islamophobia and its numerous critics. Quran does not chide away from clearly explaining the scientific phenomenon for—Metaphors or alternative meanings. As Quran is the truth from God, it is vivid and disfavouring to phenomenology. Although we may suppose many different meanings of its verses, which is perhaps due to our lack of understanding of many scientific phenomena. Wordings and content of the Quranic verses often not only dismiss the popular mythology and unscientific misconceptions of the time of its revelation but even the unscientific misconceptions of present times. The author of the Quran makes obvious statements that facilitated people of 7th century to understand the Quranic expression of the natural world and yet codified it for future generations to continue their reflections over it. Quran was beyond doubt delivered by an All-Knowing, All-Wise God, therefore its claim that ambiguity cannot be found in it stands uncontested.Read more
Secularism, per wordweb online is “a doctrine that rejects religion and religious considerations”. Albeit, secularism has regional differences in its interpretation. For example, in Indian subcontinent secularism is the celebration of plurality of various religions. India is a secular country under its constitution which awards ethnic religions and cultures to have their respective polities. On the other hand, the western progressive rhetoric seems to purge the influence of religion out of public forums and political institutions in their interpretation of what secularism means to them.
Undeniably, Islam as a religion did present its own secular stage during its reign. Fundamentally its model of democracy was clear and upright, which is clearly not the case with contemporary democracies unfortunately. In that it restored immunity to traditional religions and cultures to continue their pursuits and respective governances undeterred by its advances. For more information read further.
Events surrounding the death of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, are explained in this post.

This work is designed exclusively for modern readers who are best at exerting to fight-out bias. Let me divulge a quick analogy before you, in that our likes & dislikes and their swapping positions in our consciousness are a good example to allude towards freewill & its realism, but a grandeur argument underpins this work to disqualify freewill in-compatibilism. This book ushers the Quranic narrative on the long standing philosophical subject of freewill & its in-compatibilism with determinism. In this book I have dealt with the subject thoroughly utilizing realism found in the Quran. And have highlighted traditional wrongs that did subtly slip in diluting the understanding of the subject among the adherents of Abrahamic faiths.
I have noticed philosophical subjects of this nature are popular amongst non-religious and often religious people are brought to present their apology. Which they have best done in the last century earning the prestigious title “the apologists”.
Question – One of God’s names is The Just. But even though I try my best to be a good person and to be kind to people, I get hurt by others and suffer a lot of hardship in my life. Where is justice in that? Life doesn’t seem very fair to me.
Answer – Is life unfair? Of course it’s unfair. Where is the justice in this world? A man can murder and steal, and still live a luxurious life, full of wealth and fame, and then eventually die without any worldly punishment. On the other hand, a man can live a peaceful life, being nothing but kind, patient, and helpful, and eventually die without any recognition or appreciation. Truly, there is no justice in this world, and the Quran even confirms that. God Almighty says regarding the day of Judgment: “On This Day every soul will be recompensed for what it earned. No injustice today!” Quran 40:17
In other words, in the hereafter, there is no injustice, which implies that perhaps prior to that, in this life, there is injustice. But does that mean that God himself is unjust? No. Read more to know.Read more
Question- It seems unfair that people who were born non-Muslim will go to Hell fire on the day of judgement, while I will go to paradise just for being born Muslim, they didn’t get the same chance that I got.
Answer- First of all, regarding yourself as a Muslim: who says that just because you are a Muslim you’ll automatically enter paradise? It is true that most religions teach people that if they merely believe, they will enter paradise, and by that, they will attain salvation in the hereafter. Islam, on the other hand, considers faith to be essential, but not sufficient by itself. So, one can be a Muslim; believing that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger, and still enter Hell-fire. That is because salvation, in Islam, is like a bird that flies with two wings: one is faith and the other is good deeds. The expression: “Those who believe and do righteous deeds” is mentioned multiple times in the Quran. The two are always associated with each other. So, regarding those who have not received the message, and do not know about Islam, or those who have only heard a distorted version of Islam, you should not worry about them. Allah is just.Read more
