    The Concept of Incarnation: Where does it lead to? (The Myth of the Four Thousand Religions)

    We often hear people promote the idea of more than four thousand religions existing in the world today. It is also often questioned: how can we discern the true and valid religion among the others? Let’s start the journey!! Once, a Spanish man succeeded in defrauding a woman out of 300,000 Euros, after convincing her that he was the incarnate creator and that she should deposit her money in the “Bank of Heaven”. The Spanish man continued to communicate with the elderly woman through phone calls for over ten years, during which he convinced her that he was “God” and asked her to deposit her money in the “Bank of…

    Freedom: Between Personal Pleasures & Mental Awakening (Carrot & Stick Concept)

    Dr. Abdel-Wahhab El-Messery says: Materialism fails to explain man’s insistence on finding meaning to his life. When a man does not find meaning to his life, he does not continue in material production like a dumb animal, but rather he decomposes, and he becomes nihilistic, eats drugs, commits suicide, and commits crimes without a clear material reason. The issue of meaning becomes more acute with the increasing satisfaction in the material side of man. Man’s humanity was closely related to something other than materialism. Personal Pleasures: The Creator said in Surat Al-Zumar: God sets forth the parable of a slave owned by several quarrelsome masters, and a slave owned by…

    International Conference on Tolerance & Human Rights

    In an interview with a delegation of the International Day for Religious Tolerance and Human Rights, one of the attendees said to me: It is the human being who has the right to determine natural rights. I said: Imagine that you were a guest of someone who owns a massive house with nicely furnished rooms, dining table, kitchen utensils, etc. The question here: Do you have the right to eat at his dining table, use his kitchen utensils, or break any furniture without his permission? Of course, this act will be reprehensible for every sane person because you acted on someone else’s property without his permission. The question now: If…

    The Cause & the Heart of the Matter (Hereafter Scales)

    The heart of the matter: I always repeat the wonderful words of Dr. Abdel Wahhab El-Messiri, in which he says: “Today, the world is experiencing a crisis of forgetting the essence of the matter; the world stands without a basic and fundamental pillar, which is the reference”. He also says: “Human memory has been lost; human memory is what gives a person his humanity. Through memory, we learn and get history. Through memory we know good, bad, right, and wrong. Thus, we establish our lives on this basis and choose between good and evil. If we forgot the essence of life, our lives would be suspended between heaven and earth”.…

    Buddhist Monk – Muslim Dialogue & Religious Tolerance

    There was a rare visit from three monks from a Buddhist temple in Thailand. A diplomatic delegation accompanied them from the Thai embassy—the monks dressed up in similar to the Muslim pilgrimage clothes, but orange. At the beginning of the visit, the delegation instructed us that the monks do not shake hands with women. Also, when it came to taking the memorial photo with me inside the mosque as a tour supervisor, I was supposed to kneel with the embassy staff. At the same time, the monks remain standing. They consider the monks in a higher position than everyone else. I said to them: About shaking hands, I do not…

    Vatican Dialogue & Peaceful Coexistence

    How happy I was during a recent conversation I had with some Popes of the Vatican and the delegation accompanying them, regarding promoting coexistence between the followers of different religions. I remember that I explained in detail the doctrine of Islam, saying: The religion of Islam is: Belief that there is no god but God (the Creator) alone. He has no partner or son. He is the Creator and Sustainer of the entire universe and what it contains. The Creator created Jesus Christ without a father, and He created Adam without a father or a mother. He creates and does not give birth. We have to worship the Creator directly…

    My Visit to the Mondial, Maradonian Religion & Knowing the Creator

    There is no deity but the Creator: My children were amazed at my visit with their father to the World Cup in Doha, knowing that we do not have football inclinations. Our visit to the World Cup happened concurrently with the distribution of my new book in Doha. The title of the book is: The Greatest World Cup – Your status is where you place yourself. I told my children: The topic of my new book is a comparison between a footballplayer’s mission in the World Cup and man’s mission on planet Earth. I liked to have a practical and realistic evaluation. Dr. Muhammad Abdullah Daraz says in his Book…

    Power & the Creator’s Divine Self

    A Latin lady once told me: How can we explain the emergence of the universe out of nowhere? Some philosophers have argued that the universe is either part of the Divine Self, or part of the light emanating from the Divine Self. How does the Creator help us without being physically with us everywhere? She added: Within every human being is a part of the Creator, which is the spirit that all human beings share. I replied to her: The Creator created the universe out of nothingness with His power and ability, and the universe is not part of the Divine Self. A person, for example, possesses a self, which…

    War on The Truth

    Physicist Albert Einstein says [1]: “Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that some spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe, one that is vastly superior to that of man. In this way, the pursuit of science leads to a religious feeling of a special sort.” Islam becomes stronger despite being fought: Among the teachings of Islam are: The universe has a Great Creator, Who created it for great wisdom. Humans have a Great Creator, Who created them for great wisdom. The Creator is separated from humans. The Creator does not come to earth in any animal form or a human form. Humans…

    The Creator’s Transcendence & The Absolute Truth (the blind & the elephant lesson)

    Nothing is like the Creator: Introducing Himself, the Creator says: (He is) the Creator of the heavens and the earth: He has made for you pairs from among yourselves, and pairs among cattle: by this means does He multiply you: there is nothing whatever like unto Him, and He is the One that hears and sees (all things). (Qur’an: Al-Shura:11). Scholar Ibn al-Qayyim says: The Quranic verse “There is nothing like Him” refers to the multitude of the Creator’s attributs. The Creator also says: No vision can encompass Him, but He encompasses all vision. For He is the Most Subtle, All-Aware. (Al-An’am: 103) The Quranic verse “No vision can encompass…
