|ADVICE FROM OUR PROPHET (SAAS) REGARDING FASTING, BROTHERHOOD AND PROPER MORAL VALUES DURING RAMADAN|
Satan Tries To Influence People By Debasing Human Nature
Allah, the only ruler of everything on Earth, knows His creatures very well and the way of life that suits them best. Allah has created human beings to be happy and content, but only if they believe and practice the moral teachings of the Qur'an. "... Only in the remembrance of Allah can the heart find peace." (Surat ar-Ra'd: 28)
This truth is written in the Qur'an and applies to all human beings without exception. A person can live a good life in this world only if he draws near to the Lord Who created him and lives a life to gain His love and approval. Allah tells us in the Qur'an to use as our guide the nature He has created in us:
So set your face firmly towards the religion, as a pure natural believer, Allah's natural pattern on which He made humanity... (Surat ar-Rum: 30)
If they do not live their lives according to their nature and do not adopt this moral understanding, people will lead lives of anxious discontent. They won't be able to derive pleasure from the countless blessings that Allah has bestowed on humanity and will not be aware of the beauty surrounding them. As the Qur'an says, they will lead lives filled with difficulties: "But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one and on the Day of Resurrection We will gather him blind." (Surah Ta-Ha: 124) They will be easily overcome by sadness, uneasiness, hopelessness and pessimism, and can find no solution to the problems they live with. Yet when they realize the situation they're in, they cannot find the source of the anxiety that dominates their lives nor how to find a remedy for it. The basis of this difficulty confronting individuals is the work of satan, the basic source of all evil. One of the methods he uses against human beings is to debase themselves, because satan knows that humans can be happy only if they live according to their human nature. So, by making them adopt a moral understanding and lifestyle contrary to their nature, he can bar them from happiness. Again, his own insidious methods lead people into error and prevent them from escaping from the traps they have fallen into. By calling them to practice a morality contrary to their nature, he makes false promises of happiness. According to the Qur'an, satan boasts that:
I will lead them astray and fill them with false hopes. I will command them and they will cut off cattle's ears. I will command them and they will change Allah's creation." Anyone who takes satan as his protector in place of Allah has clearly lost everything. (Surat an-Nisa': 119)
All these truths that Allah reveals in the Qur'an make it clear that human beings can be happy only if they live according to the moral teachings of the Qur'an and return to the nature that Allah has created in them. Otherwise, satan will draw a person not only into unhappiness in this world, but into suffering that will last for eternity.
|EXAMPLES TO LIVING FOSSILS:|
Age: 38 to 23 million years old
Size: 6.6 centimeters (2.6 in) including petiole
Location: Beaverhead County, Montana, USA
Formation: Muddy Creek Formation
The 38-23-million-year-old fossil grape leaf also verifies that plants also did not evolve, but were created. There exists no difference between Vitis grape leaves that existed millions of years ago and those of today.
HERRING AND SUNFISH
Age: 54 to 37 million years old
Formation: Green River Formation
Location: Fossil Lake, Kemmerer, Wyoming
These herring and sunfish specimens once again show that living beings have not evolved. These fossils on the same plate, between 54-37 million years old, reveals that the herrings and sunfish living today and those that lived in the past are no different.
|THE NAMES OF ALLAH:|
Whether you reveal a good act or keep it hidden, or pardon an evil act, Allah is Ever-Pardoning, All-Powerful. (Qur'an, 4: 149)
By their very nature, people are prone to make mistakes. They can think wrongly on a great number of issues at any moment, make incorrect decisions and behave in a wrong manner. Yet Allah, who created man and knows his flaws, also forgives mistakes that are made. If he were not "forgiving" then not one person would be able to enter paradise.
Yet we must not forget that Allah forgives His sincere servants. The important thing is for a person to be sincere, and for him to submit to Allah in the full knowledge of his own helplessness. Allah forgives the sins of those who turn to Him sincerely. He has revealed this fact in the Qur'an:
Allah only accepts the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and then quickly repent after doing it. Allah turns towards such people. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise. (Qur'an, 4: 17)
|THE EVOLUTION DECEIT:|
Almost all the basic living categories known today emerged suddenly and at the same time, during the Cambrian Period, 530 to 520 million years ago. Living organisms with totally different bodily structures—sponges, mollusks, worms, Echinodermata, arthropods and vertebrates—all appeared suddenly, simultaneously, with no life forms remotely resembling them in any earlier geological period. This fact alone completely undermines evolutionists' claims that living things evolved from a single common ancestor gradually, and over a very long period of time.
The fact that the Earth was suddenly filled with a great many species, all possessing radically different physical structures and exceedingly complex organs demonstrates that these were, of course, created. Since evolutionists deny creation and the existence of God, they cannot definitely explain this miraculous phenomenon.
Species Living Today Have Undergone No Changes over Hundreds of Millions of Years
Had evolution actually taken place, then living things must have emerged on Earth as a result of small, gradual changes—and to have continued changing over the course of time. Yet the fossil records demonstrate the exact opposite! Different classes of living creatures emerged suddenly, with no ancestors even remotely resembling them, and remained in a stable state, undergoing no changes at all, often for hundreds of millions of years.
|THE SIGNS LEADING TO FAITH :|
The Sleeping Bag Of The ParrotFish
This colourful fish employs quite an unusual method to protect itself against its enemies. Especially at night, it covers its entire body with a gelatine-like substance that it itself produces.
This gelatinous sheath of the parrotfish is secreted from the upper side of the gill cavity. The fish secretes the substance while it breathes. After a while this sheath covers the entire body of the fish. By doing so the fish places itself within a kind of sleeping bag and becomes protected from external danger at night. This substance also enables the fish to conceal itself by camouflage. As a vital function, the transparent sleeping bag protects the fish from moray eels, one of its bitter enemies.
This being the case, one should ask the following questions: How did parrotfish obtain this protective sheath that they use at night? How do they know that their leading enemy hunts by means of its sense of smell? How did they discover a substance, so essential in obstructing the moray's sense of smell so enabling them to spend the night in safety?
Obviously, one cannot expect a fish to decide to produce a chemical in its body and then to cover itself with this substance. Nor could such a thing have developed spontaneously through time.
It is a clever method of camouflage that the body of the fish is covered with gelatine, which is quite suitable for protecting the fish from its enemy. It is obvious that such a feature could come into existence only as a result of Allah's design, Who created all creatures.
|BOOK OF THE DAY:|
Darwin said: "If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down." When you read this book, you will see that Darwin's theory has absolutely broken down, just as he feared it would.
|SITE OF THE DAY:|
WOMAN IN THE QUR'AN. COM
In this site, we will deal with the common woman's character as seen in unbelieving societies and analyze how this erroneous character become established. In addition, we explore Maryam's character, whom Allah raised above all other women, and thereby define the ideal Muslim woman's character. As a result of this analysis, we will see that this superiority is only in terms of faith, fear and respect of Allah, and fine character, and that every man or woman who does good deeds will be justly rewarded with Allah's good pleasure, mercy, and Paradise, as mentioned below: "Anyone, male or female, who does right actions and believes, will enter the Garden. They will not be wronged by so much as the tiniest speck" (Surat an-Nisa': 124)
