The month of Ramadan is the one in which the Qur'an was sent down as guidance for mankind, with Clear Signs containing guidance and discrimination. Any of you who are resident for the month should fast it. But any of you who are ill or on a journey should fast a number of other days. Allah desires ease for you; He does not desire difficulty for you. You should complete the number of days and proclaim Allah's greatness for the guidance He has given you so that hopefully you will be thankful. (Surat al- Baqara, 185)
"… When you ask for anything ask it from Allah, and if you seek help in Allah. Know that if the people were to unite to do you some benefit they could benefit you only with what Allah had recorded for you, and that if they were to unite to do you some injury they could injure you only with what Allah had recorded for you. The pens are withdrawn and the pages are dry. (Tirmidhi)
There was quality in the time of Rasulullah (saas). Quality in behavior, language, dress, cleanliness and everywhere. For example, Muslims went to Spain and founded a civilization there. People are still stunned when they see it. There was a glorious quality. There was quality in the Ottoman Empire. You see the works surviving from the Ottoman Empire. Nothing like them has been produced since. Concrete buildings, rectangular boxes, sacks of potatoes… after that it doesn’t really matter how rich you are. It is no good. You need to reach the highest point in art and quality. Then the world will be beautiful in a technical sense. Without it, what happens? A man has a garden, but it is horrible and devoid of quality. You go in and it stinks. But care can make it high-quality. (A9 TV, April 29, 2012)
The Exemplary Life Of The Prophet Muhammad (saas)
Allah commands His messengers to maintain justice among people. The Prophet Muhammad (saas), the last messenger, started to spread the religion of Islam in Mecca, where he received the revelations, with a just attitude.
At that period, the Arabian Peninsula, and especially Mecca, was shaken by social problems. In the period preceding the Blessed Period, which is called the "The Age of Ignorance," there was severe discrimination between races and religions. Disputes among tribes, an unjust economic order, plundering, intolerant attitudes between members of different religions, differences between the poor and the wealthy and many other injustices were the natural consequences of such discrimination. The maintenance of justice could not be established, the poor were oppressed by those in power, and were subjected to violence because of their race, religion or language. People were forced to work under very hard conditions, and were virtually tortured.
In commercial life, under the burden of the interest-ridden system, small-scale businesses disappeared, whereas the wealthy tended to extravagant consumption. Some of these immoral acts became almost like traditions. For instance, the Arabs of the ignorant age who raided and plundered commercial caravans sold their spoils at very low prices and influenced market conditions. Sometimes, they kept these goods deliberately and generated a black market.
In the Qur'an, Allah gives information about the desert Arabs who made up the majority of society before the time of the Prophet Muhammad (saas). This society's disinclination to comply with the words of the Messenger is related in the following verse:
The desert Arabs are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy, and more fitted to be ignorant of the limits which Allah has sent down to His Messenger. But Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Surat at-Tawba, 97)
The Prophet Muhammad (saas) was sent to such ignorant people to summon them to good morals and the right path. No difficulty could shake his commitment. He communicated Allah’s message to a tribe which was particularly inclined to disbelief, and was throughout his life a role model for them. As also stated in the verse below, he called on his people to be just:
Say: "My Lord has commanded justice..." (Surat al-A’raf, 29)
The message of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), coupled with his good morals, had a great impact all over the Arabian Peninsula, and people converted to Islam in great numbers. The just commands of the Qur'an good morals, tolerance, peace and a peaceful social order-prevailed during his time. One of the most important reasons for this is that, in compliance with the verse, the Prophet Muhammad (saas) observed social justice without discriminating between people:
Allah commands you to return to their owners the things you hold in trust and, when you judge between people, to judge with justice. How excellent is what Allah exhorts you to do! Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing. (Surat an-Nisa, 58)
One example is the contract the Prophet Muhammad (saas) signed with the people of Najran, who were among the people of the Book. This text reveals an exercise of justice which was unprecedented in that age. The article of the pact of Najran, "If any one of the people of Najran demands his rights, justice shall be done between the plaintiff and respondent. Neither oppression shall be allowed to be perpetrated on them, nor shall they be permitted to oppress any one" (The Pact of Najran, Article 8, http://www.islamic resources.com/Pact_of_Najran.htm) manifest the kind of justice people enjoyed at that time. Due to this unprecedented administration, people placed strong trust in Allah's messenger, and even his most terrible enemies could not help being impressed by the Prophet's (saas) honesty.
These examples of good morals which appeared as a consequence of the Prophet Muhammad's (saas) meticulously observing Allah's commands also reflect the tolerant, peaceful order Allah's messengers introduced to social life. In a society where people comply with the values of the Qur'an meticulously, it is obvious that a peaceful life will be secured.
There Is No Such Thing as the “First Self-reproducing Molecule That Gave Rise to Life”
The scenario regarding life that Darwinists have been rehearsing ever since Darwin’s time begins with a mythical “first cell” that supposedly came into being spontaneously. This mythical first cell;
Was described in Darwin’s day as “a small balloon filled with water,” because under the primitive conditions of the time, nobody even knew what the cell really looked like.
It was irrationally suggested that this alleged first cell came into being spontaneously in water.
It was claimed that all the varieties of life developed from this first cell that came into being by chance.
Enormous scientific progress was subsequently made in the 20th Century and the structure of the cell was fully revealed. It was realized that;
A single cell has a more complex structure than the city of New York.
That it was impossible for even a single protein inside the cell, let alone a cell itself, to come about spontaneously.
The idea that the cell came into being in muddy water is therefore scientifically illogical and impossible.
These facts caused a terrible panic among Darwinists. The fact that the theory of evolution had collapsed RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING OF LIFE totally demoralized them. They wanted to conceal this fact. They set about using the press and universities. “We can probably manufacture protein in laboratories and are conducting experiments,” they said. “There are hypotheses that life began from a single cell,” they said. “We will prove our claims eventually,” they said. But nothing changed over the next 150 years and no evolutionary claim was ever proved. On the contrary, every new scientific advance has proven that no protein can ever come into being by chance.
Why Do Evolutionists in Turkey Still Espouse Claims That Darwinists Elsewhere Have Abandoned?
Stunned by a succession of scientific defeats, Darwinists recently, under the leadership of Richard Dawkins, began speaking of a supposed “self-reproducing molecule.” But even this did not rescue the position, and even Dawkins had to publicly admit the illogical nature of the claim, and thus that such a creation could only be brought into being by a sublime intelligence.
Yes despite all these facts and scientific advances, evolutionists in Turkey insist on repeating the idea. They reiterate such illogical and unscientific ideas as, “We cannot speak of an advanced life form, but we speak of an organization progressing toward life,” “...the first self-replicating molecule created life,” or “....life emerging from inanimate matter is the result of the laws of nature, and there is nothing to discuss about it.” The reason for this is that these people are unable to divorce themselves from the old, fraudulent evolutionist conception of science.
There Is No Such Thing as a First Self-reproducing Molecule
Since Darwinists are unable to account for how a protein might have formed spontaneously, they claim that the beginning of life was “a first molecule capable of self-reproducing.” First of all, there is no such thing as a “self-reproducing molecule.” If this molecule was a protein, the smallest units inside the living cell, then it must be borne in mind that proteins themselves have no “self-reproductive” property. In order for a protein to be able to self-replicate, IT NEEDS
Energy manufacturing mitochondria
And the cell membrane.
A FULLY EQUIPPED CELL.
Therefore, the idea of a “self-reproducing molecule” is totally fraudulent. It is impossible for a molecule not inside a living cell to be able to take in energy from the outside and use it to replicate itself. To refer to this as “an organization progressing toward life” is demagoguery and a deliberate distraction. “Organization progressing toward life” is a totally illogical term. The smallest living thing is “a CELL.” Only a cell and the structures inside it can self-reproduce. Only a cell can take in energy from the outside and use it. Only a cell can maintain its own existence through its own organelles and the energy it takes in from the outside.
To put it another way, there can be no supposed stages progressing from the inanimate toward life. LIFE CAN NEVER COME FROM SOMETHING INANIMATE. THAT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE. IT IS SCIENCE THAT SAYS THIS, PROVEN, CONCLUSIVE, SCIENTIFIC EXPERIMENTS. When Darwinists say, “....there is scientific evidence that life formed from inanimate matter,” they are not speaking the truth. All research at the molecular level has proved in the 20th Century that life cannot come from what is inanimate; and this has been confirmed by science in the 21st Century. Not even the presence of a protein is enough for a living thing to form. In order to be able to explain life, Darwinists have to account for the formation of a SINGLE CELL. BUT THEY ARE STILL UNABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR HOW A SINGLE PROTEIN MIGHT HAVE EMERGED SPONTANEOUSLY. A tiny protein inside the cell totally demolishes Darwinism.
The Collapse Of The Dome And Walls Of Kufa Is One Of The Signs Of The Appearance Of Hazrat Mahdi (as)
The town of Kufa, which lies to the south of Baghdad, is one of the most significant towns for Muslims, and is where Hazrat Ali was martyred and where his tomb stands. It became the capital of the Islamic Empire in the time of Hazrat Ali.
In describing the events that will take place during the time of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as), our Prophet (saas) also noted things that would take place in Kufa, saying that conflicts there would be one of the portents of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as).
Indeed, the Messenger of Allah (saas) provided astonishing details, such as the collapse of the dome and walls of the Kufa Masjid.
1. The Dome Of Kufa Will Collapse
I said to him, when will he [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] come out? He said: when you saw armies from the city of Anbar in Iraq at the banks of Euphrates, Shiraz and Tigris, and THE TOWER OF KUFA IS DESTROYED, AND BURNING OF SOME HOUSES IN KUFA, WHEN YOU SEE ALL THIS, VERILY ALLAH WILL ACT ACCORDING TO HIS WISH [MAKE THE APPEARANCE OF HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) COME TRUE], no one can subdue the commandment of Allah and no one can review His judgment. (Falahi Ssa’il: 199; and in Al-Misbaah: 51 and Al-Baladul Ameen: 35 with slit difference)
2. The Wall Of Kufa Will Collapse
Another hadith particularly refers to the collapse of the wall of Kufa Masjid and states that this is one of the signs of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as):
Abu Abdullah narrated from Husayn ibn Ali (ra):
"When the wall of the mosque of Kufa ... is destroyed, then at that time the people will lose their possession and at that possession’s disappearance, the Mahdi will come forth." (Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi Alamat al-Mahdi Akhir az-Zaman, p. 27)
The fact that the dome and walls of the Kufa Masjid, which had stood for 1400 years, were damaged just as described by our Prophet (saas) in the Hijri 1400s, the time of the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as), is without doubt one of the miracles bestowed on the Messenger of Allah (saas) by Allah.
The Prophet (saas) has described Hazrat Mahdi (as) with the most astonishing detail. Now that hundreds of events revealed by the Prophet (saas) have come about exactly as described over the last 30 years, the fitting thing for sincere Muslims to do is to experience the joy and fervor of this miracle of the Prophet’s (saas) and to share it with other people.
