Why Does Allah Allow Suffering and Evil in the World?

Sufferings occur to teach us that we must adhere to Allah’s natural and moral laws. It is sometimes to punish those who violate Allah’s natural or moral laws. It is to test our faith in Allah and to test our commitment to human values and charity.

Hurricane Sandy from an Islamic Perspective

For some people, such hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, etc. are merely forces of nature that have nothing to do with faith. They come and go, just like any other natural phenomenon. No spiritual impact or lessons can be drawn from these occurrences.

Seven Meanings of God’s Name Al-Fattah

In Arabic, the word “Fataha” means, “to open something closed”. Your relationship with God’s Divine name “Al-Fattah” (the Opener of the gates of profit and sustenance) is that whenever a gate is closed in your face, you should remember this Divine name of God and ask Him to open it for you.

Why Are We Here?

First and foremost is to establish that there is God. We have done a number of programs about that to prove even scientifically beyond any shadow of a doubt that Allah exists. There have been scientists who have also come to this conclusion. But then there will be always those who say “Yes but according to my logic I don’t understand. I don’t see how you can believe in a God”.

Is Allah a Loving God?

The entire universe and everything in it is proof of Allah’s love for all of mankind. He loves us so much that He gave us an endless variety of foods, a vast array of wildlife, the ability to see changes in our surroundings by the changes in weather, and the sun, moon, and stars, companions to share our lives with, and offspring to share in the world with us.

Man-God Relationship

God is the only true Provider. It is He who has bestowed on man such faculties and capabilities as seeing, hearing, thinking and articulating-attributes which man cannot live without, but which he cannot create for himself.

It is He who has made available the resources of the external world which man may discover, exploit and develop but, again, cannot create.

Religion between ‘Blind’ Imitation and Certainty (P. 1/2)

The message of Islam challenges – using the power of persuasion and clarity of proof – those who adopt an inherited religiosity and follow the example of their parents and ancestors as far as their creed and devotions are concerned, just as they inherit their wealth and riches. It also challenges those who adopt religion due to being influenced by their surroundings, just as they adopt traditional norms and conventions.

On the Existence of the Divine Being

Only a person out of his wits could hold that this wonderful system of life came into being, and has continued for countless generations, without a wise, powerful God possessing vast knowledge and unrivalled powers of performance.

God’s Mercy in Reward & Punishment

According to God, our Creator, the biggest sin in His sight is associating partners with Him, despite the signs He has shown us. Worshipping and obeying Him is the very purpose of our existence. If people insist on following their desires and continue doing evil, then it is only fair that they be punished. But God is most merciful because He has sent messengers, books and signs so that people may be guided to the correct way and submit to Him.

Assuming the Best about Allah

Our assuming the best about God really means pinning our hopes and expectations on Him. We know that God can be severe in punishment as well as most merciful, but we must hope for His mercy and be confident that if we sincerely repent for our sins and strive to do good, we will attain God’s mercy.

Why Is There So Much Injustice in the World?

No human being can claim to be free from weaknesses and shortcomings. This is the reason why we find oppression and injustice, in one form or another, wherever man-made laws are in force instead of the law of God, and where human authority is obeyed instead of the Divine commands.

Faith is Human Nature: What Does This Really Mean?

When we believe in God, we are responding to our nature, and because it is in harmony with our nature, the existence or absence of faith must have a marked effect on a person’s life.

Muslim Scholars Broke the DA VINCI CODE

Ancient secrets of the Church, hidden for centuries have actually been revealed and published in books prior to the fictional writings of Brown in the “Da Vinci Code”. Baigent and Leigh have produced other books from researcher’s point of view over the last two decades, including “Dead Sea Scrolls Deception”, “Holy Blood, Holy Grail”, and “Messianic Legacy.”

Prophethood: The Perception of Realities

Just as the Qur’an is believed to be the revealed Word of Allah without any reservations, similarly, the Prophethood of Muhammad is also beyond any doubt. These two facts have to be taken as granted, otherwise, there cannot be a rational and sound interpretation of the concepts of Halal and Haram (lawful and unlawful), Wajibat and Manhiyyat (obligations and prohibitions), Athab and Thawab (penalty and reward).

Keeping God in the Heart

Dhikr or remembrance of God is a way of linking the heart with the Divine. It provides with the spiritual practices of remembering and re-connecting with what is most meaningful in our lives, God. Muslims find consolation, comfort and strength in the frequent repetition of sacred phrases containing the Names of God and His attributes.

Who Is Allah?

Some of the biggest misconceptions that many non-Muslims have about Islam have to do with the word “Allah”. For various reasons, many people have come to believe that Muslims worship a different God than Christians and Jews. This is totally false, since “Allah” is simply the Arabic word for “God” — and there is only One God. However, it is certainly true that Jews, Christians and Muslims all have different concepts of Almighty God. For example, Muslims, like Jews, reject the Christian beliefs of Trinity and Divine Incarnation. However, this does not mean that

Tawheed… The Essence of Islam

According to Islam, all religions revealed to the prophets, may Allah exalt their mention, have the same essence and knowledge of Tawheed and unity of Allah, but, with the time, the message was misinterpreted, mixed with superstition, and degenerated into magical practices and some rituals. That was the same message with which Adam was sent down to earth, the same knowledge that Allah revealed to Nuh (Noah), Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses) and `Isa (Jesus) (May Allah exalt their mention), and the last Prophet sent to humanity, Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him).
