|ADVICE FROM OUR PROPHET (SAAS) REGARDING FASTING, BROTHERHOOD AND PROPER MORAL VALUES DURING RAMADAN|
The Source Of Mockery
If people consider themselves superior to others, this feeling is called arrogance. Arrogant people behave in a way designed to make others feel inferior. However, it is wrong to regard arrogance as a defect only in regards to one's behavior toward others, because when arrogant people are called to follow Allah's religion and the true path, they display their arrogance by refusing to do so.
People will fall into a trap set by the self as long as they do not act according to their conscience, do not give up their selfish desires, and do not live by the morality laid down by Allah, because: "the self indeed commands to evil acts - except for those on whom my Lord has mercy" (Surah Yusuf, 53). Those who listen to satan's blandishments and see in themselves superior characteristics that have no basis in reality are, in fact, entirely under the control of the self. As a result, they are inescapably arrogant.
Arrogance is one of satan's most clearly defined characteristics. As the Qur'an tells us, all of the angels bowed to Prophet Adam (as) when Allah told them to do so - all except satan, who regarded himself as superior to Prophet Adam (as) and thus was filled with conceit. Allah reveals:
We said to the angels: "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, with the exception of Iblis. He refused and was arrogant, and was one of the unbelievers. (Surat al-Baqara, 34)
… then We said to the angels: "Prostrate before Adam," and they prostrated - except for Iblis. He was not among those who prostrated. He [Allah] asked: "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you to?" He [Iblis] replied: "I am better than him. You created me from fire, and You created him from clay." He [Allah] said: "Descend from Heaven. It is not for you to be arrogant in it, so get out! You are one of the abased." (Surat al-A'raf, 11-13)
In reality, neither satan nor those who heed his deceitful calls have any superiority at all. On the contrary, such people fall into foolishness and demean themselves by refusing to accept the fact that Allah has supreme power over everything. Allah tells us about those who claim superiority for themselves: "… [they] have nothing in their breasts except for pride, which they will never be able to vindicate" (Surah Ghafir, 56). And, according to Prophet Muhammad (saas):
"Verily, Allah is Graceful and loves Grace. Pride is disdainingthe truth (out of self-conceit) and having contempt for the people." (Sahih Muslim: Book 1, Number 0164)
In other words, no matter how great their desire, the unbelievers can never achieve the superiority that they want. They cannot achieve it because real superiority belongs only to Allah, Who exalts those of His servants who devote themselves to Him, and brings low, both in this world and the Hereafter, all those who insist upon their unbelief. Allah describes the unbelievers' blindness and incomprehension in the following terms:
The creation of the heavens and Earth is far greater than the creation of humanity. However, most people do not know it. The blind and the sighted are not the same, nor are those who believe and do right the same as those who do evil. What little heed they pay! The Hour is coming - there is no doubt about it. But most people have no faith. (Surah Ghafir, 57-59)
As the above verses inform us, most people become proud of the characteristics that Allah has given them as a blessing, and thus fall into the trap of arrogance because they cannot understand His power and greatness. One of the ways in which they reveal their internal arrogance is by mocking others. As stated earlier, they believe they can make themselves superior by making others feel small. As a result, mockery is very widespread in societies that are far from religion.
Moreover, their internal superiority complex compels them to see only the other person's defects, not his or her good aspects. Every one is proud of one or more of his or her characteristics: success, beauty, wealth, and so on. As a result, they compare themselves with others who they consider deficient in these characteristics and then mock them, even though Allah gave them these characteristics and can withdraw them at any time.
Due to their estrangement from religion, mockery has become an inseparable part of these societies' normal life. Children and young people alike all grow up with this culture and this moral defect. Those who mock others actually suffer from mockery themselves, and this behavior actually traps them in a stressful environment.
|EXAMPLES TO LIVING FOSSILS:|
Age: 33 million years old
Size: 38.1 centimeters (15 in) by 25.4 centimeters (10 in) by 5.08 centimeters (2 in)
Location: Converse County, Wyoming, USA
The fossil pictured is evidence that no difference exists between rhinos of 33 million years ago and those today. Living creatures with anatomy unchanged for millions of years reveal that the theory of evolution is a huge deception.
Age: 33 million years old
Size: Skull 6.3 centimeters (2.5 in); matrix: 22.8 centimeters (9 in) by 17.7 centimeters (7 in) by 10.1 centimeters (4 in)
Location: Converse County, Wyoming, USA
The fossil record contains no examples of species gradually evolving from other, earlier forms. For instance, among millions of fossils, there exists not a single one that possesses the features of a half crocodile/half rabbit or half snake/half rabbit. However, thousands of fossils show that rabbits have always been rabbits. The evident fact revealed by fossils is that living species did not evolve; God created them.
|THE NAMES OF ALLAH:|
Allah knows the Unseen of the heavens and earth. Allah knows what the heart contains. (Qur’an, 35: 38)
Allah possesses all knowledge of the heavens and the earth, all living things between them, all the laws that apply in the universe, and all things that happen at all times. Because it is Allah who creates them.Furthermore, there are no limits to Allah’s knowledge. Allah knows the identities of everyone who is born or dies in the world and the number of leaves that fall from every tree – and all this at one and the same time. He knows all the details of the billions of stars in the billions of galaxies in the universe, and many other things that we can never list here. Our Lord knows everything that happens in our world and all that happens in space. He knows the generic codes of all the billions of people, animals and plants in the world.
In one verse of the Qur’an He reveals:
The keys of the Unseen are in His possession. No one knows them but Him. He knows everything in the land and sea. No leaf falls without His knowing it. There is no seed in the darkness of the earth, and nothing moist or dry which is not in a Clear Book. (Qur’an, 6: 59)
There is one very important secret that we must not forget: As well as all the things we have just listed, Allah also knows the hearts of men, what goes through their minds, and everything they do, whether openly or in secret. People think that only they know the emotions, thoughts and anxieties they feel. Yet this is a great mistake. Just like He does everywhere else in the universe, Allah knows man inside out.
|THE EVOLUTION DECEIT:|
The False Proof that Life Could Have Formed Spontaneously on the Primeval Earth
For their only evidence of this claim, evolutionists point to the Miller Experiment, carried out in 1953. Yet that experiment produced no living cell. All that happened was that a few simple amino acids were synthesized. But it is mathematically impossible for amino acids to assume the correct sequence and constitute proteins, and for these then to give rise to the cell, by chance. In addition, the amino acids that Miller synthesized were irrelevant and meaningless, because in his experiment Miller employed gasses that did not exist in the primeval Earth’s atmosphere.
Albumin, one of the proteins in the body, binds to itself fats such as cholesterol, hormones, toxic bile and drugs such as penicillin. It then travels throughout the body in the bloodstream, deposits the substances it has collected in the liver where they can be converted into usable form, and carries other nutrients and hormones to the sites where they are needed.
How can a molecule such as albumin, composed of unconscious, unknowing atoms, distinguish between fats, toxins, drugs and various nutrients?
Furthermore, how is it able to recognize the liver and gall bladder, and deposit the substances it transports at just the right place and in just the right amounts, never confusing them or making a mistake? Since it is impossible for human beings to tell toxins, nutrients and drugs carried in the bloodstream apart from one another, how is a molecule made up of atoms able to do so?
|THE SIGNS LEADING TO FAITH :|
Little Engineering Birds
Birds build their nests so that they blend in with their natural environments. Let us consider birds of theshoreline. These birds build their nests on the surface of the water and the nest does not sink. The materials used and the shape of the nests are all particularly designed. So, even if the water level rises, neither the nest nor the offspring are damaged. These animals have innate capabilities to build their nests and have no need of training. They could not have possibly learnt such a task over time; if they had tried to do it by trial and error, the nest would have sunk as the water rose. However such a thing never happens because all shoreline birds have built their nests in the same way since the first day they appeared.
Some birds living in swamps build the walls of their nests high so that the eggs do not fall out because of the wind. How is it that this bird, which carefully protects its egg, knows about the risk of eggs falling out and being broken? We see here that the bird takes a wise precaution.
Another bird species living in arid areas builds its nest among the bushes and not on the ground. The reason why it does so is the difference in temperature: the temperature among the bushes is ten degrees less than on the ground. Most of us do not know about the temperature difference between the ground and bushes, and that there is a difference between them. These birds, however, know it and protect themselves and their young from intense heat by building their nest in the coolest place.
These behaviours of birds could be compared to those of engineers who have gone through years of education and training in their fields. While building a house, engineers consider details such as the strength of the building, materials to be used and location; only then can construction begin. As you have seen in the above examples, birds also build their nests according to a plan. But they do not need any tools or education. They act by the inspiration of Allah and carry out their tasks easily. These birds and what they perform are evidence of Allah’s perfect creation. It is surely the All-Knowing Allah Who inspires them to do everything they do.
|BOOK OF THE DAY:|
In order to account for the supposed evolutionary process—which, they claim, extended from a single cell to multi-celled organisms, and then from apes to Man—Darwinists have managed to rewrite the history of mankind. To that end, they've invented such imaginary eras as “The Cave-Man Age” and “The Stone Age” to describe the lifestyle of so-called “primitive man.” Yet the pictures and dioramas of half-ape, half-human creatures sitting in a dark cave, dressed in furs, and lacking the facility of speech are all fictitious. Primitive Man never existed, and there never was a Stone Age. They are nothing more than deceptive inventions produced by evolutionists with the help of one section of the media. Human beings have been human since the day they came into existence, and have possessed a fully elevated culture from that day to this.
This book reveals why the whole concept of the “Stone Age” is erroneous, and demonstrates the fact of creation with support of the latest scientific findings. Mankind came into the world not through evolution, but by the flawless creation of God, the Almighty and Omniscient.
|SITE OF THE DAY:|
SECRET BEYOND MATTER . COM
What is explained in this site is an important truth, which has surprised many and changed their perspectives on life. This truth can be summarized as follows: "All events and objects that we encounter in real life-buildings, people, cities, cars, places-in fact, everything we see, hold, touch, smell, taste and hear-come into existence as visions and feelings in our brains". We are taught to think that these images and feelings are caused by a solid world outside of our brains, where material things exist. However, in reality we never see real existing materials and we never touch real materials. In other words, every material entity which we believe exists in our lives, is, in fact, only a vision which is created in our brains.
