Al-Khansaa’ was a model of eloquence, and faithful patience in aspiring for the reward of Allah the Almighty, and was a virtuous woman who continues to inspire generations.
The world was at its worst before Allah sent Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). All forms of discrimination existed. In places such as Persia and India, a very unjust caste system existed, in which the majority of the people were oppressed and discriminated against because they belonged to a lower caste.
Ibn Hazm was a great investigator in historical affairs. Translators of his works have rated him highly and opine that he gathered the knowledge of history from both Oriental and Western sources. He authored several books in history. He wrote several biographies and books on lineage. Following are some of them: Al-Marifata bil-Ansab, Al-Tarikhul `Aam. However, the best known among his books on lineage is Jamharatun Ansab al-`Arab.
Treatment is an interaction between two sides through which they exchange words, deeds or affairs including communication, correspondence, conciliation, dispute, etc. The concluding message set for humanity the rules for co-existence which led it along the way to goodness and success in this world and the Hereafter.
The renowned scholar draws our attention to a very important point: All books of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) start with a chapter entitled taharah (purification). This is the first branch of fiqh that Muslim men and women start to study (Qaradawi 9). Dr. Al-Qaradawi then cites a well-known rule for Muslims: No Muslim could pray if he or she is not purified from minor impurity (Al Hadath Al Asghar) by partial ablution or from major impurity (Al Hadath Al Akbar) by complete ablution or ghusl.
In the Islamic worldview, there are no fallen angels: they are not divided into ‘good’ and ‘evil’ angels. Human beings do not become angels after death. Satan is not a fallen angel, but is one of the jinn, a creation of God parallel to human beings and angels. Angels were created from light before human beings were created, and thus their graphic or symbolic representation in Islamic art is rare. Nevertheless, they are generally beautiful beings with wings as described in Muslim scripture.
Islam’s prohibition of intoxicants strongly and clearly illustrates its concern for bodily health. Alcoholic drinks and drugs are prohibited under any name or in any form. Islam is very strict in the prohibition of intoxicants (here intoxicants include alcohol and drugs.) The consumers of intoxicants are not the only ones who are subject to legal punishment in the view of Islam but also the manufacturers, the sellers and the servers. Any substance that causes harm for the body is prohibited by the Qur’an and Sunnah.
The Qur’an makes reference to the 23rd chromosome that determines the difference between male and female thus: The word “man” and the word “woman” both appear 23 times in the Qur’an. This discovery about chromosomes made only recently was reported hundreds of years beforehand in the Qur’an by way of the number 23, that which concerns the basic difference between male and female. (Allah knows the truth.)
Scientists are convinced that our universe began with one enormous explosion of energy and light, which we now call the Big Bang. This was the singular start to everything that exists: the beginning of the universe, the start of space, and even the initial start of time itself. Astrophysicist Robert Jastrow, a self-described agnostic, stated, “The seed of everything that has happened in the Universe was planted in that first instant; every star, every planet and every living creature in the Universe came into being as a result of events that were set in motion in the moment of the cosmic explosion…The Universe flashed into being, and we cannot find out what caused that to happen.”
Resurrection will be preceded by the end of the world. God will command a magnificent angel to blow the Horn. At its first blowing, all the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth will fall unconscious, except those spared by God. The earth will be flattened, the mountains turned into dust, the sky will crack, planets will be dispersed, and the graves overturned.
I was an atheist at one time. And like many atheists, the issue of people believing in God bothered me greatly. What is it about atheists that we would spend so much time, attention, and energy refuting something that we don’t believe even exists?! What causes us to do that? When I was an atheist, I attributed my intentions as caring for those poor, delusional people…to help them realize their hope was completely ill-founded. To be honest, I also had another motive. As I challenged those who believed in God,
The Qur’an makes it clear that human life is sacred. Life cannot be taken without justification and the right to life is inherent in the tenants of Islam. Life itself is a gift from the Creator that we are obliged to care for. Suicide out of despair of God’s mercy or worldly problems is strictly forbidden. Prophet Muhammad, may God praise him, said: Whoever kills himself with something in this world will be punished with it on the Day of Resurrection. It is a major sin and its punishment is subject to the will of God. If He wills, He will forgive it, and if He wills He will punish for it
Dvornyk’s team did not have information on how long women had been smoking or how many cigarettes they smoked each day, so his team could not determine how either of those factors may have affected age at menopause.
Which would not be a surprise to Dr. Andrew Pipe of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. His study shows that if a person stops smoking, its risk for stroke or heart disease decreases. Within 18 months to two years of quitting, the risks of stroke are about the same as for non-smokers, he argues.
This is a compilation of a number of interesting video clips on the proof for the Existence of God (Allah the Almighty) from different perspectives and angles. In this video, you will be able to see: The Kalam Cosmological Argument and the impossibility of the infinite regress, response to the question: Who created God? Who designed the Designer?
In order to understand Islamic ethics we have to know that Islam is based on the paradigm of tawhid (i.e., the Oneness) and this concept has many dimensions, but at the root of this concept is that those creatures are all linked together in unity. Everything out there is created, sustained, and cherished by the same God Who created you, the same God who revealed the book.
The word “Qamar,” referred to as a heavenly body in the Qur’an and meaning “Moon” appears 27 times. The elliptical orbit of the Moon around the Earth also takes 27 days. But this is not a number that someone looking from Earth could determine. Because since there is a 29-day between full moons, it used to be thought it took the Moon 29 days to travel around the Earth.
One of the best ethics and morals a true Muslim should have and enjoy is truthfulness. As is stated in many hadiths by Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him), truthfulness leads to guidance and good deeds and lying leads to mischief, debauchery and bad deeds. This truthfulness in the life of a Muslim can have several good outcomes and fruits in both this present life and the hereafter
One could hardly imagine how those Muslim emirs accepted to give up Bayt Al-Maqdis for the Christians, knowing that any true Muslim could not think about giving any spot of the Islamic land whatever small it might be, let alone Bayt Al-Maqdis in particular, where there is, as known to all, Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa, which had previously been liberated by their grandfather, the great hero Saladin, May Allah have mercy upon him, and cost much blood, very hard times and bitter wars. This is what actually took place.
Again, the Islamic conception of woman is radically different. The Qur’an clarifies that Satan was the only deceiver in the story of the Garden, while Adam and Eve receive equal blame for their disobedience. There is not the slightest hint that Eve was the first to eat the forbidden fruit or that she tempted Adam to do so. Both Adam and Eve committed a sin, asked God for His Forgiveness, and He duly bestowed it
