    One Ocean Summit & Priorities of Mankind

    The Creator said: Cooperate with one another in goodness and righteousness, and do not cooperate in sin and transgression. And be mindful of Allah. Surely Allah is severe in punishment. (Al-Maida:2). He also said: But seek, through that which Allāh has given you, the home of the Hereafter; and [yet], do not forget your share of the world. And be excellent as Allāh has been excellent to you. And desire not corruption in the land. Indeed, Allāh does not like corrupters.” (Al-Qasas:77). From these two noble verses, we understand the importance of preserving the environment, and the importance of cooperation in this regard to have a decent life. However, what…

    The Great Replacement Theory

    Today, non-Muslims talk about a theory called the “Great Replacement”, which arose out of the intense fear due to the great spread of Islam, which led them to believe that this was a conspiracy which aimed at overthrow them and replace them with Muslims. This theory has become a pretext for killing, torturing, or expelling Muslims from their countries. So, what is the story? A French lady once told me: The head cover is not normal for us. She persisted: The headcover is retardation and backwardness. I challenged: Is there any backwardness beyond Adam’s time? Showing the head itself was the backwardness. People started since the time of Adam to…

    The Philosophy of Science

    Philosophy of science is a branch of philosophy concerned with the foundations, methods, and implications of science. The central questions of this study concern what qualifies as science, the reliability of scientific theories, and the ultimate purpose of science. One day a Mexican atheist lady told me: I believe in science. Through science, the existence of a creator to the universe can not be proven. Therefore, the Creator does not exist. I told her from what I read and liked[1]: You have to understand that according to the philosophy of science, for a scientific conclusion to be scientific it cannot refer to divine power or divine wisdom. This does not mean…

    (The Greatest World Cup) – Your Status is Where You Place Yourself in

    The status of a Human is where their priorities are: In the journey of life, with its sorrows and difficulties, joys and facilitations, we find ourselves waiting for victory, support, and empowerment. But we actually don’t get it, because as soon as we get a certain goal, our desire to get the next goal starts. Life goes on and dreams don’t end. When is the victory? How do I know what my status is in the sight of the Creator? I found the answers to these questions when I learned that victory may not come here in this life, and if it comes, it will come temporarily. If hearts are…

    The Islamic Civilization

    The world’s civilization was based on the sciences and culture of Muslims. At the beginning of the Renaissance, Europeans and others transferred everything that fell under their hands from Islamic sciences and knowledge into their languages. There were centers of civilizational radiation, such as Andalusia and Sicily, where Europeans used to receive knowledge at the hands of Arab and Muslim scholars. Richard Cook, American lawyer, politician, and former Governor of Texas, says: “Europe owes a lot to Arab Spain. Cordoba was a shining lamp for science and civilization in a period when Europe was still mired in filth and primitiveness. Islamic rule in Spain made it the only country that…

    Energetics & Desire Fulfillment: Between Islam & Buddhism

    A Japanese Buddhist once told me: Buddha is a god. I said to him: Does a god say about himself: I am not the first Buddha and I will not be the last Buddha? The word Buddha means “enlightened”. This is a description of a messenger. A Muslim does not rule out the idea that some religious symbols were messengers from the Creator. But the Muslims do not and will not accept the idea of a ​​divine-human being in any way. He said: Right and wrong are relative, so what is wrong for you, may be right for us. I said to him: The Truth is Truth even if the…

    Knowing the Creator

    An old Latino once asked me: Who created the Creator? I said: This common question is meaningless. It is similar to the question: Who baked the baker? He said: If we accept the existence of a Creator for the sake of argument, then this Creator should be complex in structure, because this universe is complex, so its creator would require an even greater explanation. He also said: The concept of ​​the Trinity is closer to the truth than the oneness of the Creator. I told him what I heard once and I liked it: The philosopher and agnostic Anthony Kenny says: “The argument that the atheists make that the complexity…

    No Assignment Beyond Capacity: Islam or Buddhism?

    A Japanese Buddhist once told me: Buddha’s teachings depend entirely on non-violence towards any creature. Therefore, Buddhism does not adopt the concept of retribution like Islam. There is ˹security of˺ life for you in ˹the law of˺ retaliation, O  people of reason, so that you may become mindful ˹of Allah˺. (Al-Baqarah 179). And he said: Buddhism encourages its followers to refrain from harming, injuring, or killing other creatures. The criminal’s punishment should be rehabilitation only. Then he said: Buddha said: “If someone offends me, I will repay him with love on my part. The more evil on his part, the more goodwill on my part”. The Japanese also said: Even…

    The Greatest Trial

    The Creator said in the Qur’an: We have certainly created man into hardship. (Sura Al – Balad:4) Which means, it is only by human constant suffering, struggle and hardship, he/she will reach a higher status than the angels. This conflicting nature between dust (body) and soul what leads him/her to get struggled between the body material desires and his sublime spirit. His/her only way to get this higher status in the next life, is by resisting what he likes and tolarating what he hates in this life. Which means: Following the Creator’s commands, and avoiding His prohibitions. It is impossible for one to suffer instead of another person. Rather, a…
