11- Archeology tells us that Allah is really the pagan Moon god.

Archeology tells us that Allah is really the pagan Moon god.

Critic:- Archeology tells us that Allah is really the pagan Moon god. Comment:- Here is a story about this kind of thinking:- There was an idiot called Albert ,one day he was ill & had to see Dr. Carpenter but did not like him. So he looked through a dictionary and found that Carpenter means someone who works with wood, and by looking into encyclopedias he found that the ancestors that family were wood workers. Congratulating himself for this discovery ;he began a campaign against Dr. Carpenter telling everyone that he`s a fraudulent; claiming to be a doctor while in reality he`s a wood worker. During this, his illness grew even worse, He feared that he might be prosecuted for libel, also there was a possibility that sick people might avoid visiting Doctor Carpeneter who`s their regular Doctor which may affect their case to become worse . But fortunately most people realized that Albert is an idiot. In case someone does get the relevance of this story:- Muslims believe in Allah as defined in the Quran not as found in Archeology.

Who is the Creator and the Maintainer of the whole Universe.

12- A Biblical picture of God

A Biblical picture of God

A Biblical picture of God A Muslim believes that God is unlike anything we can imagine. No one can look at him and live. He never tires. He is All-Knowing, All-Seeing, All-Powerful, Perfect. All he needs do is decree a matter and it will be. Yet the language of the current Bible never fails to picture even God himself in undignified terms: God goes for a stroll: Genesis 3:8 "And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden." God can not find Adam (not all-knowing): Genesis 3:9-10 "And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where are you? And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself."(from God?) God does not know if Adam ate from the tree or not (not all-knowing): Genesis 3:11 "And he (God) said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?" Before looking for hidden meanings for the above verses, we should consider the following: 1) Read section 2.3. 2) If you were to give your child total, unconstrained freedom to do whatever he wants in your house, you only ask him "don’t play with my stereo." If he then goes ahead anyway and proceeds to dismantle it into fifty different pieces. If you know for a fact that he did it and you know exactly where he has hidden himself (maybe you had a hidden camera somewhere), would you walk all over the house calling out "Where are you my son?," "come out, come out wherever you are"?, or would you storm up to the place where he was hiding, pull him out by his ears, and punish him severely? 3) If you did not know where he was hiding, but knew what he had done without a doubt, would you, once you had found him, ask him: "why are you hiding? Did you break my stereo?" It is important to first attempt to think logically before looking for abstract meanings. Note: For the Islamic version of this incident please read chapter 15. God becomes tired and needs to be *******ed: Exodus 31:17 "It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was *******ed." Notice that the verse does not claim that God Almighty "abstained from work," but rather that He "rested." This implies that it is possible for God Almighty to experience fatigue and that He is not All-Mighty and All-Powerful since He sometimes needs to be "*******ed." God is not cognizant and/or is not eternally aware (not all knowing, all seeing, attentive and aware): Psalms 44:23 "Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever." When God finally becomes cognizant attentive and aware, He acts like a drunkard: Psalms 78:65 "Then the LORD awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine." The above verses are responded to by the Almighty in the noble Qur’an as follows: "And verily We (God) did create the heavens and the earth in six days and no fatigue touched Us." The noble Qur’an, Qaf(50):38 "Allah! there is no god but He, the Living, the Sustainer and Protector. Neither slumber nor sleep overtake Him. His are all things in the heavens and the earth. Who can intercede in His presence except as He permits? He knows what is before and behind them. Nor do they encompass aught of His knowledge except as He wills. His throne does extend over the heavens and the earth and He feels no fatigue in preserving them. For He is the Most High, the Supreme." The noble Qur’an, Al-Baqarah(2):255 Jacob wrestles with God. God can not win against Jacob. Jacob sees God face to face: "And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved." Genesis 32:24-30 Many people claim the Jacob wrestled with an angel. Does this sound like he wrestled with an angel? Did Jacob (pbuh) say "I have seen the angel of God"? Did he say "I have seen the light of God" or some other statement that might have had an abstract meaning? No! He said "I have seen God" and just so that there would be no doubt in anyone's mind he added the words "face to face." If Jacob (pbuh) had wrestled with an angel, then why would he need to say "my life is preserved"? Do people who see angels die? (Numbers 22:31, 2 Samuel 24:17, 1 Chronicles 21:16, ...etc.). If Jacob had seen the face of an angel then why would he name the place "the face of God"(peni-el), and not "the face of the angel"(peni-malak)? Indeed, this is how the great St. Augustine and many others understood this verse. This brings up another question. How do we reconcile this with point 25 in the table of section 2.2 (regarding seeing God)? We are beaten over the head four times with the fact that a human (Jacob, peace be upon him) managed to out-wrestle God Almighty, but the translators realizing the fallacy of this concoction continually try to reinterpret this verse and make excuses for it. Notice how we are beaten over the head not once, but four times with the fact that this was GOD who was beaten by Jacob: 1) "I have seen GOD." 2) "FACE to FACE." 3) "And my life is preserved." 4) They called the place "Peniel" ("FACE OF GOD"). Are we now to believe that God wrestled with Jacob all night, He resorted to hitting Jacob (pbuh) below the belt, and in the end was still bested by Jacob ("I will not let thee go, except thou bless me")? When someone has you in a headlock and tells you: "do as I tell you," is he victorious or not? God forbid! High exalted is He! Illustrious! Mighty! Magnificent! All-Powerful! Neither Moses nor Jacob would ever make such a claim. Nor would the other prophets of God. The great and noble prophets would never dare to claim that God had been reduced to a punching bag to further their own egos. Notice how we are encouraged to believe that it is not sufficient to humbly prostrate oneself before God, bowing down and beseeching Him for His favors in earnest prayer and in all submission. Rather it is necessary to slap Him silly and beat Him into the ground then force Him to bless the victor. Is this not preposterous? Does this not reek of tampering fingers? May God Almighty forgive me for even repeating these words. God regrets his actions, God can not see the future, God can not change the past: Genesis 6:6 "And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart." It is not possible to regret doing something unless the result of this action was something bad that had not been foreseen and can not be changed. In Webster's New Dictionary (1990), the word "repent" is defined as follows: to regret, sorrow for, to wish to have been otherwise what one has done or left undone. Thus, God is claimed to be: 1) Unable to see the future: If I know for a certainty that performing "action" will result in "result," then when "result" comes about I will not regret it unless I was forced in the first place to perform "action." There is a difference between "disliking" something and "regretting" something. 2) Unable to change the past if he wanted to: As per the above Webster's definition, to repent is to "wish to have been otherwise what one has done or left undone." But if God is capable of doing all things, as a Muslim believes, then he does not need to "wish." He simply decrees it and it is. Also notice that God is not merely claimed to have regretted this action, but to have "grieved at His heart." Webster's defines grief as: Deep sorrow caused by loss, distress. So according to this passage, God felt the deepest sorrow from the bottom of his heart. If one of us felt this kind of torment and was given the means to change matters, would we hesitate? God is not this helpless! For the Islamic perspective on God Almighty, read the following: God Almighty: Al-Ikhlas(112):1-4, Kaaf(50):38, Al-Aaraf(7):143, Al-Shurah(24):11-12, Al-Anaam(6):3, Saba(34):27, Al-Zumar(39):1-7, Al-Hashir(59):21-24, Al-Hadeed(57):1-6



13- لماذا يقول الله تعالى "نحن" في القرآن الكريم عن نفسه؟

13- "Why does it say "WE" in Quran when referring to God (Allah)?"

"Why does it say "WE" in Quran when referring to God (Allah)?" This is a good question and one that Bible readers have also asked about. The term "We" in the Bible and in the Quran is the royal "We" - as an example when the king says, "We decree the following declaration, etc." or, "We are not amused." It does not indicate plural; rather it displays the highest position in the language. English, Persian, Hebrew, Arabic and many languages provide for the usage of "We" for the royal figure. It is helpful to note the same dignity is given to the person being spoken to in English. We say to someone, "You ARE my friend." Yet the person is only one person standing there. Why did we say "ARE" instead of "IS"? The noun "you" is singular and should therefore be associated with a singular verb for the state of being, yet we say, "are." The same is true for the speaker when referring to himself or herself. We say, "I am" and this is also in the royal plural, instead of saying, "I is."

14- لم مذكور في القرآن الكريم "هو" عن الله سبحانه وتعالى؟

14- "Why does Quran say "He" when referring to God (Allah) if God is not having gender?"

"Why does Quran say "He" when referring to God (Allah) if God is not having gender?" This is similar to the above answer. The word "He" is used when referring to Allah out of respect, dignity and high status. It would be totally inappropriate to use the word "it" and would not convey the proper understanding of Allah being who Allah is; Alive, Compassionate, Forgiving, Patient, Loving, etc. It is not correct to associate the word "He" with gender, as this would be comparing Allah to the creation, something totally against the teaching of Quran.

15- The Existence of God, glorified & exalted is He

The Existence of God, glorified & exalted is He.

The Existence of God, glorified & exalted is He. Though I haven’t seen the Creator, glorified & exalted is He, I believe in Him .It's inescapable to believe in Him, because I see the evidences of His existence in myself ,& in everywhere around me. He has blessed every nation with sending an apostle from themselves, informing them about the essence of the Almighty, His attributes, & His purpose of creating them. { Messengers as bearers of good news as well as of warning in order that mankind should have no plea against Allâh after the (coming of) Messengers. And Allâh is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.} (Nissa, 165) We know how the gravity announces its existence,& we (human) have discovered the laws which controls it. yet, the greatest scientists can not know the quiddity of gravity. So, why do we believe in its existence? Because we see the evidences of its existence everywhere. Likewise, electricity, wireless wave, electron, & spirit. Therefore, not seeing the object is not evidence that it doesn't exist. Once, an atheist teacher addressed his students saying: "this chair exists because we see it. But, we don't see God. So, He doesn't exist" .One of the students said:" Are you sane, teacher?". "Yes" the teacher replied. "Did you see your brain?" the student asked. "No" he replied. Then the student said "How do you claim being sane?" { So the disbeliever was utterly defeated. And Allâh guides not the people, who are Zâlimûn (wrong-doers).}(2. 258) Every one of us knows his tall, width, weight, & qualities. However, he knows nothing about his essence, his soul, & his spirit. It's a secret. Yet, it's more real than any reality. If man doesn't know his essence ,how does he claim the knowledge of God's essence, and a fortiori, how to deny it?! Let us listen to Albert Einstein when a group of theologians, moralists, & materialists went to him in his office in the Seminary in Princeton University. & they asked him:" What do you think about God?" He replied: " If I succeeded in inventing a machine that enables me to speak with microbes,& I talked to a tiny microbe standing on a top of a single human hair.I would ask him:"Where do you think you are?". He would say: " I think I am standing on a tall tree" . Then I would say to him:"This single hair you are standing on is only one of the hair of human head.& the head is only one part of the human body." Could this tiny microbe imagine the immensity of the human size & his weight? No. Compared to God, I am tinier than that microbe & infinitely smaller. How could I come to know God who knows every thing?" The stars can not be seen by our weak vision, while it is (the ornament of the worldly sky) how to see the one who created them. & If the human vision can't bear looking at the sun, How to bear looking at the light of God, glorified & exalted is He. Thus, when Moses said to God, glorified & exalted is He, {"O my Lord! Show me (Yourself), that I may look upon You." Allâh said: "You cannot see Me, but look upon the mountain; if it stands still in its place then you shall see Me."} God informed him that the mountain ,with its strength & solidity ,doesn't still when God appears (manifestation). What about a human who is weak?! { So when his Lord appeared to the mountain , He made it collapse to dust, and Mûsâ (Moses) fell down unconscious. Then when he recovered his senses he said: "Glory be to You, I turn to You in repentance and I am the first of the believers."} (al-a'araf. 143) If God appeared to mankind in earth, they would be fascinated. & then, this worldly existence wouldn't be a trial any more. Since the belief would be mandatory (obligatory), & the test would be meaningless

16- Scientific Proofs of Believing in Allah the Almighty The Rational Bases

Scientific Proofs of Believing in Allah the Almighty The Rational Bases

Scientific Proofs of Believing in Allah the Almighty The Rational Bases 1. Nonexistence Creates Nothing If we contemplate the creatures which are born everyday whether humans,animals or plants and think of what is happening in the universe where wind,rain, night or day and look at what happening in every time of orderly movementsof the sun, moon, stars or plants, the mind will surely admit that all thingsare not created haphazardly, but by the Creator, the Existent (Dignifiedbe He). Allah the Almighty said: “Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief”. (At-Tur: 35-36) 1. Thinking of the Created Elaborates on some Characteristicsof the Creator The components of the created indicates the capability or the characteristics of the maker. In other words, unless the maker has certain abilities or characteristics,which can enable him to do things, the created object will be void of anythingwhich is indicative of its maker. For example, if you see a door, whichis perfectly made from wood, you will realize that the maker has a wood,is able to systemically cut it, is able to make this wood smooth, has pinswith which he can fasten the parts of the door, and he has experience inmanufacturing doors. By the same token, if we see a straight hole in thedoor (keyhole), this indicates that the maker has the ability to accuratelydrill and make the keyhole for the door. Therefore, thinking about the manufacturedthing will lead us to realizing the skills of the manufacturer and thinkingin the creatures will lead us to know the traits of the Creator. Allah theAlmighty said: “Verily in the heavens and the earth, are Signs for those who believe. And in the creation of yourselves and the fact that animals are scattered (through the earth), are Signs for those of assured faith. And in the alteration of night and day, and the fact that Allah sends down Sustenance from the sky,and revives therewith the earth after its death, and in the change of thewinds, are Signs for those that are wise. Such are the Signs of Allah, whichWe rehearse to thee in truth: then in what exposition will they believe afterAllah and His Signs”. (Al-Jathiya: 3-6) If we ponder and think about the creatures, the signs of Allah will leadus to some of Allah’s Attributes. Allah the Almighty said: “Say: Behold all that is in the heavens and on earth…” (Yunus: 101) And Allah the Almighty also said: “Do they see nothing in the kingdom of the heavens and the earth andall that Allah hath created? (Do they not see) that it may well be that theirterm is nigh drawing to an end? In what message after this will they thenbelieve?”. (Al-A’raf: 185) 1. The Owner of Nothing Gives Nothing Money cannot be asked from the one who has no money and knowledge cannotbe sought from the ignorant, for the one who is void of something cannotgive it to others. Through thinking about the creatures of Allah, the signslead us to the Attributes of the Creator; Exalted and Dignified be He. Andif we know the attributes, we will know the Described. Those who claimthat nature created them, come into conflict with what the mind and the truthhave admitted. That is because the universe bears witness that its Creatoris the All-Wise, Full of knowledge, well-Aware, the One Who guides, the OneWho has no partner. The stone-deaf and solid nature has neither knowledge,nor wisdom, nor life, nor mercy, nor will; how they did then think in thatway and the one who is void of something cannot give it to others. What Is Nature Nature consists of various kinds of creatures along with their characteristics. The idolaters worshipped some parts of the nature such as sun, moon, stars,fire, stones, and the humans. The neo-idolaters (naturalists) imagine thatthe previous idols (nature) has created them, although nature has no mindand they have, it has no knowledge and they have, has no experience and theyhave, and has no will and they have. Didn’t they know that the one who isvoid of something cannot give it to others. Allah the Almighty said: “O men! Here is a parable set forth! Listen to it! Thoseon whom, besides Allah, ye call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they allmet together for the purpose And if the fly should snatch away anything fromthem, they would have no power to realize it from the fly. Feeble are thosewho petition and those whom they petition!

They do not have right estimate of Allah, for Allah is Powerful and Mighty”. (Al-Hajj: 73-74)

17- The Scientific World Is Turning to God

The Scientific World Is Turning to God

The Scientific World Is Turning to God "As people have certainly been influenced by me, I want to try and correct the enormous damage I may have done." (Anthony Flew) The newspapers these days are echoing with these regret-filled words by Anthony Flew, in his time a well-known atheist philosopher. The decisive factor in this radical change of view is the clear and definitive evidence revealed by science on the subject of creation. Flew realised, in the face of the information-based complexity of life, that the true origin of life is intelligent design and that the atheism he had espoused for 66 years was a discredited philosophy. Flew announced the scientific reasons underlying this change in belief in these terms: "Biologists' investigation of DNA has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce [life], that intelligence must have been involved." (1) "It has become inordinately difficult even to begin to think about constructing a naturalistic theory of the evolution of that first reproducing organism." (2) "I have been persuaded that it is simply out of the question that the first living matter evolved out of dead matter and then developed into an extraordinarily complicated creature." (3) The DNA research which Flew cites as a fundamental reason for his change of opinion has indeed revealed striking facts about creation. The helix shape of the DNA molecule, its possession of the genetic code, the nucleotide strings that refute blind chance, the storage of encyclopaedic quantities of information and many other striking findings have revealed that the structure and functions of this molecule were arranged for life with a special design. Comments by scientists concerned with DNA research bear witness to this fact. Francis Crick, for instance, one of the scientists who revealed the helix shape of DNA admitted in the face of the findings regarding DNA that the origin of life indicated a miracle: An honest man, armed with all the knowledge available to us now, could only state that in some sense, the origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, so many are the conditions which would have had to have been satisfied to get it going. (4) Based on his calculations, Led Adleman of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles has stated that one gram of DNA can store as much information as a trillion compact discs. (5) Gene Myers, a scientist employed on the Human Genome Project, has said the following in the face of the miraculous arrangements he witnessed: "What really astounds me is the architecture of life… The system is extremely complex. It's like it was designed… There's a huge intelligence there." (6) The most striking fact about DNA is that the existence of the coded genetic information can definitely not be explained in terms of matter and energy or natural laws. Dr. Werner Gitt, a professor at the German Federal Institute of Physics and Technology, has said this on the subject: A code system is always the result of a mental process… It should be emphasized that matter as such is unable to generate any code. All experiences indicate that a thinking being voluntarily exercising his own free will, cognition, and creativity, is required… There is no known natural law through which matter can give rise to information, neither is any physical process or material phenomenon known that can do this. (7) Creationist scientists and philosophers played a major role in Flew's acceptance of intelligent design, backed up by all these findings. In recent times Flew participated in debates with scientists and philosophers who were proponents of creation, and exchanged ideas with them. The final turning point in that process was a discussion organised by the Institute for ****scientific Research in Texas in May, 2003. Flew participated together with author Roy Abraham Varghese, Israeli physicist and molecular biologist Gerald Schroeder, and Roman Catholic philosopher John Haldane. Flew was impressed by the weight of the scientific evidence in favour of creation and by the convincing nature of his opponents' arguments, and abandoned atheism as an idea in the period following that discussion. In a letter he wrote for the August-September, 2003, edition of the British magazine Philosophy Now, he recommended Schroeder's book "The Hidden Face of God: Science Reveals the Ultimate Truth" and Varghese's book "The Wonderful World."(8) During an interview with the professor of philosophy and theology Gary R. Habermas, who also played a major role in his change of mind (9), and also on the video "Has Science Discovered God?," he openly stated that he believed in intelligent design. The "Intelligence Pervading the Universe" and the Collapse of Atheism In the face of all the scientific developments outlined above, the acceptance of intelligent design by Antony Flew, famous for defending atheism for many years, reflects a final scene in the process of collapse being undergone by atheism. Modern science has revealed the existence of an "intelligence pervading the universe," thus leaving atheism out of the equation. In his book "The Hidden Face of God," Gerald Schroeder, one of the creationist scientists who influenced Flew, writes: "A single consciousness, a universal wisdom, pervades the universe. The discoveries of science, those that search the quantum nature of subatomic matter, have moved us to the brink of a startling realization: all existence is the expression of this wisdom. In the laboratories we experience it as information that first physically articulated as energy and then condensed into the form of matter. Every particle, every being, from atom to human, appears to represent a level of information, of wisdom." (10) Scientific research into both the functioning of the cell and the subatomic particles of matter has revealed this fact in an indisputable manner: Life and the universe were brought into being from nothing by the will of an entity possessed of a superior mind and wisdom. There is no doubt that the possessor of that knowledge and mind that pervade the universe at all levels is Almighty Allah. Allah reveals this truth in the Qur'an: Both East and West belong to Allah, so wherever you turn, the Face of Allah is there. Allah is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing." (Qur'an, 2:115)
