Why is disbelief in God the biggest sin according to Islam?

I was once approached by someone who told me, ‘I am an atheist; I do not believe in God. But I am a very kind and good person. I volunteer in many charitable organizations, and I give to the poor; so, given all that, when I die, will I go to Hell? Is this the justice of you people – just because I don’t believe in God, I should enter Hell?’

An Atheist claim is that, he does all of his good deeds such as volunteering and giving to charity for the good of mankind, not in the hope of reaching Heaven, nor out of fear of going to Hell. So what is he complaining of, then? He should be pleased that he will not be going to heaven, and not be bothered if he is going to hell. After all, he is doing all of his good deeds for the sake of mankind, so he should feel secure in his knowledge of that and it should be sufficient for him.

What is a True Revelation? If God did send us a revelation how would we know if its true?

I was conversing with someone and I was told, “science has proven now that we live in a galaxy with about 5 billion stars like our sun and there are billions and billions of galaxies in the observable universe. Hopefully, the next few religious texts that come up will include this fact.”

The poor representation of God by many religious texts has caused a lot of people to lose faith in them. This is a natural reaction to our modern mindset which opposes superstition and wants to see the truth. It is as clear as day to many that those religious texts could not have been authored by God and were written by Men. This realization is desirable in order to recognize the real revelation of God. But in the process of denial we make the common mistake of generalizing all religions into one and see all religious texts from the same perspective as being “old, outdated & man-made”. The first thing I would ask you is not to club the Quran along with the religious texts you are familiar with. Let us be fair. Why should we judge something of which we have no knowledge?

Can’t we believe in God without following a religion?

I know many people who believe in the existence of a Creator but they do not belong to any religion. Does Belief in God Necessitate Belief in Religion? Would God abandon us without communicating? Certainly, it would not be wise of Him to abandon us in this world; to leave us to our own devices;

You don’t abandon your creations of art and Music, so why will God abandon his? Read more or watch to know if you can pray to God in your own way or if you should follow a religion.

The perplexing Question- Who created God?

Logically deducing the answer to the perplexing Question ‘Who Created God?’. If we say that everything has a source, and that this source itself has a source, and if we keep up this pattern; each source consecutively coming from a previous source, then the pattern would carry on perpetually. Therefore, logically, this pattern must come to an end; or rather ‘a beginning’ it must reach a source that has no source. And that is what we call ‘the primary source’. The primary source must have existed before the beginning of time, because if it came to existence after the beginning of time, then that source itself must have had a beginning and hence wouldn’t remain as the Primary Source.

Intellectual suicide-Religion or Atheism?

Why shouldn’t I be an atheist? What’s wrong with that? Religion scholars from all faiths keep proving the existence of God logically using reason. Nazism and Fascism were also products of reason. The human mind errs, reason could err. Can someone prove to us the existence of God without using reason?

What evidence is there that God exists? All this and more in this Episode 2-“Intellectual suicide-Religion or Atheism?” of Islamophobia Series Season 2 by Fadel Soliman. Read the transcript or watch it.

Is Questioning Blasphemy?

A young man once asked me – “Sometimes when I ask questions regarding the existence of God, His attributes and His actions, some elders tell me that thinking about such topics can be considered as blasphemy. And this worries me because I think about these things a lot.”

If we question or think, do we become disbelievers? On the contrary, contemplation is required so that faith is not merely inherited. Prophet Mohammad, Peace be on him, contemplated the universe. Prophet Abraham contemplated the universe. And God commands us to contemplate the universe and attempt to crack the code or solve the riddle; the riddle that is: “How did creation begin?”

Is God the creation of Man? or Did Man create God to explain his shortcomings

Relying on people’s opinions is not the correct premise to judge the existence of God or to analyse His message’s worth no matter how intelligent or charismatic the person is. Neither is depending on majority consensus the right way. Prolonging or waiting for an expert opinion to tell you whether to believe in God or not is also not worthwhile lest you lose the opportunity for belief. God is prevalent in human conscience and His messages are clear as day. Let me strike an example to you; In case of me imitating a voice to you over the phone despite all the assistances from that person to mimic him to greatest possible degree with best of my talents your unique enquiries to me will prompt me to succumb from true imitation. Similarly the Quran will clarify to you in a convincing way that it is not Muhammad or any other human but God is conversing with you. It is perhaps your own cognisance that will truly help you identify demi gods otherwise you may prolong the wait anticipating expert opinions and finally lose the opportunity for belief.

Logical Reasoning can lead you to faith in God

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.

8 insights of the Unforgivable Sin

The only unforgivable sin before Allah remains Shirkh (associating or making partner gods). what does it really mean? If any does carving of an image then summons it before himself or his people as his deity then he carries the blame for creating or making up a god. People see the benefit of trafficking gains by misleading numerous men and believe me nothing can come closer to gods carving trade for vested benefits. The real God remains unseen ever closer to the conscience of the learning human. This clarifies the position that nothing as an object can be considered qualifying as a God figure. To my surprise many Christians in the western world assume that Muslims worship Muhammad as God or the son of God like their own predicament of worshipping Jesus as God and often as the son of God and seldom as holy spirit. Quran clarifies its position saying O people do abstain from ascribing children to God and inventing strange concepts such as trinity. Having said this let us ponder on the subtle inferences of ego gods and partner gods as detailed in the Quran in the paragraphs to come down the line.

Earth’s sky a Quran miracle

Our precious Atmosphere (the blue Sky) is unique to planet Earth. It is now a consensus in science that even Mars in its early formation had an Atmosphere and water is found to have channelled turning pebbles to aline like the rivers force them to as we notice here on Earth which was picked up by Mars rover as evidence pointing to its possibility. Atmosphere is such a big thing that life wouldn’t be possible due to its absence. Centuries ago Almighty God, Allah has revealed this information in the Quran at a time when we could barely reflect on these details. While is describes it as a canopy supporting life in surah 2.22 is nearly not a claim in itself in this article. Perhaps it may sound like I might be reading way too much into the vague text as some have argued. But, if Quran has informed of a technical details it will be the hard bit which I would like to use to nail the wail arguers. Its spherical construction is a sign to modern generations such that we acknowledge God though His book the Quran as the Chief Creator of all the wonders.

Refraction of white light in Atmosphere a Quran miracle

Since mars lost its Atmosphere, planet earth became unique for this reason in about a million solar systems that we are searching to find a similarity for an earth like planet. What this really means to us is its tantamount relation not just to host our survival but to assist our ability to vision. Our celestial Moon is one such body at proximity which does give us the opportunity to imagine how it would entail to be on it craving for visibility. Because we can’t see the way we do here on earth even if the Sun showed up the zenith. Science inquiry has helped us know that due to the fact that Moon has no Atmosphere of its own Sun’s white light wouldn’t scatter as a result the ambience is dimmed and therefore low visibility prevails. Almighty God, Allah has revealed this information when we could barely reflect on these details as a sign to modern generations such that we acknowledge Him as the Chief Creator of all the wonders. This article covers Miracle of refraction of white light by Atmosphere in Quran and Conclusion.

Lineage of Muhammad is traced to Noah, does Quran confirm?

Often people exert leaps to connect with best of the lineages known to them from their traditions and culture to claim novel origins. It is still seen as a thing to reckon in the eastern cultures. Although religion has admonished emphatically that all people are descendants from Adam and Adam is from dust. This teaching by God himself seems to dilute again as people are lead by their traditions more than anything. This article covers Who is Imran, Allah traces Moses's descent, Allah chooses exclusive family lines, Noah's line of prophet hood and conclusion.

Shooting at Munich Mall – Germany, not a terrorist attack

As I stood watching news of shooting at Munich mall, contradicting versions of it were being reported by various channels. The world news channels were inching on their feet to report it as an “islamist terrorist” attack, stretching references to this possibility. It was almost like “they wanted” this to be an Islamist terrorist attack! It was really funny to watch a news anchor on a channel asking a reporter; what is a typical Friday evening in Munich like? and began her “psychological analysis” of the situation! In contrast the German news channels showed the maturity and refrained from any untoward references to any community or religion that could make the report sound conclusive.
