The best word is the word of Allah and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad. (Sunan Ibn Majah)
 



Verily, I have left amongst you the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Apostle which if you hold fast, you shall never go astray. (Bukhari)

 

 

Every person will be held accountable for himself

In general, the self has the tendency to attribute the mistakes to others and not accept them as its own responsibility. The one who yields to him/her self, thinks that it is always the other person who is the reason of the troubles he experiences. In relationships within work, family, between friends, that is to say in every conflict, people believe that it is the opposite side that causes problems. Our inner selves may cause us to think ‘’I have the utmost best intentions, and yet every time, I am the one who is treated unjustly.’’ If one listens to him/her self, one may delude himself with such thoughts. One may believe that he is never understood, that he can not  explain himself, his thoughts, his will and what he wishes to say. At the same time, he can not  realize his own deficiencies and mistakes. Consequently, for him, realizing his mistakes and  making up for his deficiency will be beyond the bounds of possibility. If someone thinks that he is treated unjustly and believes that others are always accountable for the matters, then his evaluations of these will be shallow. Furthermore, he may react hastily, poorly, unreasonably, emotionally and above all, in a manner that does not  suit  the morality of the Quran. Because he can not  evaluate the situation he is in reasonably and logically, he may accuse people around him of unusual things. He will be in a mood that adopts negative attitudes to himself and his friends. And it will not be possible for him to adopt an attitude full of love and beauty towards other  people, an attitude that makes people feel his love sincerely, if he continues to accuse people, believe that he is unjustly treated, evulate matters unreasonably, make all of this an obsession. Even if this type of  person, does not say a word, his being will give off his negative manner.

If the person does not  practice the moral instructions of the Quran, and does not  have a deep belief, he will get the notion that he will live quite long in this world, without having any knowledge of it. Although he will see hundreds of examples of death,  as required for the mystery of the trial, there will also be so many details that will make him forget this reality and drift into blindness against this clear fact. Allah has created the world separately, one for every individual, and also a unique fate for each of them. Because there are examples of people who live long, it does not  mean that we will live long too. Everyone’s destiny is  different. Everyone has an uniquely ultimate ending. Everyone will turn back to Allah, the Supreme, the Eternal and the Ever-existent. And people, one by one, are  being tried according to their specific fates independent of each other. Consequently, we should not shake our good intentions with minor logical errors like; ‘’I have always treated people well, assumed an humble attitude, disclaimed my rights by being patient, and the turn is now theirs.”  

A muslim resigns himself to Allah, in any condition, and shows patience for (consent of) Allah. And he does this for life, eagerly and delightfully. He never concedes from showing good morality. At every time, he will choose what is appropriate and good in behavior for the consent of Allah. He never forgets he will be returned to Allah, give accounts of his deeds on his own, and will not share his account with anyone. No one  will bear  the responsibilty for  him, nor will his good deeds that are devoted to Allah be shared with anyone. Only he, himself, will be held accountable for what he did.

No burden-bearer can bear another’s burden. If someone weighed down calls for help to bear his load, none of it will be borne for him, even by his next of kin. You can only warn those who fear their Lord in the Unseen and establish salat. Whoever is purified, is purified for himself alone. Allah is your final destination. (Surat Al Fatir 18)

Moreover one should not tend to provide his justice by himself, but should submit himself to the Justice of Allah. People who think that events happen by chance and far from the predestination of Allah (Allah is beyond this), have the inclination to provide their own justice themselves. This is actually a sign of blindness  he is in. This kind of person is far  from living the morality of Islam  and putting his/her trust in Allah, which is resigning himself to the destiny that  Allah created for him.. The idea of placing reliance in Allah and destiny will bring him a total submission and belief to Allah. In a contrary situation, he will lead a distressed life and he will turn into an ordinary being. He will turn into a person who is forgetful of the trial in this world, unwary, ignorant, changeable, and unaware of  paradise, and far from rationality, one who will forget the value of love, loyalty, and devotion; in short he will lose his humanistic features.
         
Since not resigning himself to destiny, will lead one to a reasoning that is produced by him/her self and make him far from justice,it may cause him to make a big deal out of a trivial matter and  will cause him to do injustice to others by yielding to his anger. The self  will make one  tend to externalize impulsive actions, when it encounters an arduous situation.

With one’s self, there may have been impulses like picking a quarrel, making  a furious explanation, getting angry, blazing and so on. The self,  which is in the same side with satan, will make you estranged from reasonable thinking. Whereas, in a human, conscience, reason, and fear of Allah will develop a strong and beautiful control mechanism. Formation of emotions like this, in the self, will not necessisate to abandon oneself to them. The differences between a fearer of Allah and the one who fears not, distinguishes themselves at this point. Allah commands us in Quran, 134th verse of Surat Al-Imran;  
 
‘’Those who give in times of both ease and hardship, those who control their rage and pardon other people – Allah loves the good-doers –‘’

One who believes in Allah behaves reasonably by fearing Him. A muslim stays away from these  kinds of games  which will besmear him spiritually. He will think awhile and make his choice in favor of the truth and the beautiful. On the other hand,  the contrary will bring no benefit, either spiritual or material. Obeying the wishes of the self will bring one a loss both in the afterlife and in this world. On the other hand, the one who ponders on destiny, resigns him/her self to the destiny of Allah, and behaves according to the morality of the Quran, will  rise and soar spiritually. His belief will be even stronger.
 
No one should forget that everyone will be held responsible for their actions. It is not a pretext for someone to adopt the same negative manner with the one who is unaware. One chooses his own way. A believer has the strength to exhibit mature and conscious manners, and to say appropriate words that are  suitable to the Quran.

 

 

Magnificence In The Creation Of Man

All the people around you have come to their present state after months spent in their mothers' wombs. For each of them the same perfect system was prepared in their mothers' body, and each of them passed through the same stages.


Birth is a great miracle. The baby who develops in its specially protected chamber prepared in the mother's womb, comes into the world after a certain period of time. The details of this miraculous event will lead every man who ponders it to very important conclusions. Let us reach this conclusion together by looking at a detail that is important for a baby's development:

The placenta is a flesh tissue formed by the woman's body in order to attach the fertilized egg to the uterus wall. It contains a soft structure of blood vessels destined to serve the developing baby. These vessels are like the branches of a tree. In the placenta, the mother's and baby's blood vessels intertwine and exchange materials. The two bloods never mix, but nutrients and oxygen cross from the mother's blood into the baby's blood while wastes move out of the baby's blood, ultimately to be excreted by the mother. This function of the placenta is very important because this tissue must both meet all the needs of the baby and also be selective in order to protect it. What makes this exchange possible for the placenta is a thin membrane called the "chorion." This membrane separates the baby's blood circulation from that of the mother. By virtue of this membrane, the blood of the mother cannot enter the baby's vessels. The baby receives only oxygen and nutrition through this membrane.

The nutrition a baby needs in its first months is different from what he needs in the eighth and ninth months, on the verge of birth. The placenta must also adjust for this in the consumption of nutrients. As a matter of fact, the placenta carries out all these functions in a flawless way. It is always sensitive to how much it should take from what in a selective and careful way. Here, there are some questions which should be asked and points to be remembered.

First of all, there is the question of how a placenta that is a tissue consisting of cells can make these computations. Also, the question of how the placenta is aware of the needs of the baby needs an answer too. A person with intelligence will immediately see that a piece of flesh called a placenta cannot do these things on its own and could not have acquired such features by chance. In this case, the fact we come across is again very obvious: Allah created the placenta with characteristics that meet the needs of the baby in the mother's womb. The miracle of birth is another example that displays the magnificence of Allah's artistry in creation. We are reminded of this fact in the Qur'an:

O man! What has deluded you in respect of your Noble Lord? He Who created you and formed you and proportioned you and assembled you in whatever way He willed. (Surat al-Infitar: 6-8)

 


 

 Everything is conscious in paradise, even objects


 


 

AL-BA‘ITH
The Resurrector

How can you reject Allah, when you were dead and then He gave you life, then He will make you die and then give you life again , and then you will be returned to Him? ( Surat al-Baqara, 2:28)

All people who have or will ever live are mortal. Everyone dies and is buried. Despite this obvious fact, however, most people avoid thinking about death and their subsequent resurrection. The Qur'an describes their situation, as follows:

They will ask: “Are we to be restored to how we were when we have become perished, worm-eaten bones?” ( Surat an-Nazi‘at, 79:10-11)

The Qur'an provides the most explicit answer to this popular delusion by proclaiming:

He makes likenesses of Us and forgets his own creation, asking: “Who will give life to bones when they are decayed?” Say: “He Who made them in the first place will bring them back to life. He has total knowledge of each created thing.” (Surah Ya Sin, 36:78-79)

As these verses indicate, Allah created humanity and granted different qualities to everyone. Indeed, down to his or her fingerprints, each person has unique characteristics. As our Creator, He can re-create each person in the very same manner as many times as He wills. Allah displays this coming resurrection each autumn, when nature begins to “die” and then actually experience a type of “death” during winter. Yet when spring comes, we see dry branches blossoming, nature being revived and becoming green all over. Furthermore, this “resurrection” has been happening without any interruption since time began. For Allah, resurrecting each person is as easy as this. The parallel features of these two resurrections are stated in several verses, as follows:

He brings forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living, and brings Earth to life after it was dead. In the same way, you too will be brought forth. ( Surat ar-Rum, 30:19)

So look at the effect of Allah's mercy, how He brings the dead Earth back to life. Truly, He is the One Who brings the dead to life. He has power over all things. ( Surat ar-Rum, 30:50)

Another meaning of the beautiful name Al-Ba‘ith is “sending out Prophets.” Allah sent Messengers to warn their people and bring good news in order to call them to the right path. He revealed books to some of his Messengers so that they could bring people out of the darkness of ignorance and into the light of true knowledge. No doubt, this is a great blessing of Allah to His servants. In the Qur'an, Allah relates that:

Mankind was a single community. Then Allah sent out Prophets bringing good news and giving warning, and with them He sent down the Book with truth to decide between people regarding their differences. ( Surat al-Baqara, 2:213)

Allah showed great kindness to the believers when He sent a Messenger to them from among themselves to recite His Signs to them and to purify and teach them the Book and Wisdom, even though before that they were clearly misguided. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 3:164)

 


Our Prophet (saas) told that 55th verse of Surat an-Nur points at the domination of moral values of Islam over the world with the hand of Hazrat Mahdi (as)"

Allah has promised those of you who believe and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their religion with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. “They worship Me, not associating anything with Me. Any who are unbelievers after that, such people are deviators.”
(Surat an-Nur, 55)

It was narrated by Ayyasi through Ali ibn Hassan: This verse was read alongside him:  Swear by Allah that they are those who love our Ahl al-Bayt. ALLAH WILL MAKE THEM DO (THIS) BY THE HAND OF A MAN FROM US. THAT MAN IS THE MAHDI OF THIS UMMAH.

The Invalidity of the Claim that The Idea That Whales Evolved from Bears Did Not Originate with Darwin

Since they are unable to account for a mammal that lives in the sea, Darwinists are unable to invent a scenario that might account for the existence of the whale. They merely make do with claiming that a land-dwelling life form returned to the sea.

Darwin claimed that whales evolved from bears hunting small insects on dry land. But some Darwinists rejected this embarrassing claim on Darwin’s behalf, saying that no such thing had ever appeared in any edition of Darwin’s book. But the fact is that in the first, 1865 edition of his The Origin of Species, Darwin wrote:

"In North America the black bear was seen . . . swimming for hours with widely open mouth, thus catching, like a whale, insects in the water. Even in so extreme a case as this, if the supply of insects were constant, and if better adapted competitors did not already exist in the country, I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being rendered, by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits, with larger and larger mouths, till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale." (The Origin of Species, 1st edition, chapter 6, p. 184)

 


 

This passage was removed from later editions of the book, but he regretted its removal. In one of his letters he said:

“I still maintain that there is no special difficulty in a bear's mouth being enlarged to any degree useful to its changing habits.” (More Letters of Charles Darwin, Francis Darwin, 1903, p. 162)

 


THE USE OF ELECTRICITY

And We made a fount of molten copper flow out for him. (Qur'an, 34:12)

One of Allah's great blessings to Prophet Sulayman (as) was "a fount of molten copper." This can be understood in several senses. By the use of melted copper, it may be referring to the existence, at his time, of an advanced technology that employed electricity. We know that copper is one of the best metals for conducting electricity and heat, and thus constitutes the basis of the electrical industry, which uses much of the copper produced in the world. The expression "flow out" may indicate that electricity can be used in many fields. (Allah knows best.)



HORSESHOE CRAB



Age: 150 million years
Period: Jurassic
Location: Solnhofen Limestone, Eichsatt, Germany


Horseshoe crabs belong to a subphylum of the arachnids calledChelicerata, and are more closely related to spiders and scorpions. The 150-million-year-old fossil of a horseshoe crab shown here demonstrates once again that Creation is a fact and that the process of evolution never occurred.

Miracles of the Quran

 

The unprecedented style and the superior wisdom inherent in the Qur'an is conclusive evidence confirming that it is the Word of God. Apart from this, there are a number of miracles verifying its Divine nature, one of them being that, 1,400 years ago, it declared a number of scientific facts that have only been established thanks to the technological breakthroughs of the 20th century. In this site, in addition to the scientific miracles of the Qur'an, you will also find messages regarding history and mathematics.

 

 

The Worst Slander: Idolatry


 

Most people know that idolatry is a grave sin, but never think that it could have anything to do with them. They imagine that idolaters, defined as those who ascribe equals to Allah, are merely people who worship totems carved out of stone or wood, like the primitive pre-Islamic Arab pagans who worshipped idols in the Ka`bah (The Sacred House). However, idolatry is far more subtle and is actually widespread in many societies today.
 
In reality, idolatry comprises everything that people set up as a goal that does not involve seeking Allah’s approval, in who or which they place their hopes or desire for approval, or every entity regarded as possessing true power and control other than Allah. Given the subtlety of this definition, idolatry needs to be considered as something that may be very close at hand.
 
Ascribing equals to Allah is a most dangerous sin, one that cannot be forgiven and therefore will lead people to Hell. Thus, those who fear and respect Allah and hope for His Paradise must be on their guard against this threat. But people cannot do this if they do not know what idolatry is and what things fall under its scope.
 
This book has been written to illustrate how idolatry, as set out in the Qur’an, exists in contemporary society. We hope that it will achieve this aim, help people renounce all of their idols, and turn sincerely to and serve only Almighty Allah, the true Creator of all things.
