    They denied what is beyond the reach of their knowledge

    He is with you wherever you are: I had a conversation once with my personal driver in Nigeria who was a religious catholic. He said that even though he believes that Jesus is the son of God, he refuges only from God never from Jesus. He told me about an incident that had happened to him in the past. One day he was weeping and praying to God: Oh God! I never ask but you and never pray to anyone except you! You know that I’m willing to marry and marriage is a huge responsibility. My future wife will be pregnant one day and will need me to drive her…

    Realizing the glory of God in Corona times

    So, flee to God! In a visit to South Africa, we came upon beauty that was beyond imagination. When we reached Cape Town, I got the feeling that we had definitely reached another world. There were beaches filled with penguins and gardens filled with birds and butterflies with breathtaking colors.  While wandering and exploring this exquisite place, I met a simple elderly man from Malaysia, whom was born and grew up in this place. He was a driver, and took us on a tour in the city for ten days. I asked him, if he had visited any other county, and much to my surprise, he answered: I don’t know…

    Knowing God in Corona Times

    There is no refuge from God except to Him! The Qur’anic verse “There is no refuge from God except to Him” have always been on my mind growing up. But I did not fully understand it until a funny situation occurred with my son around 20 years ago. He was playing in the kitchen and wanted to touch the hot stove. He was very stubborn, and I had to hit his hand to prevent him from trying to touch it again. He cried and started to wander around from one place to another, not knowing where to go. His father tried to calm him down and cheer him up, but…

    The Books of the Bible

    Muslims believe in all the earlier revelations of God (the scriptures of Abraham, the book of David, the Torah, The Gospel, etc.). Muslims believe that the original message in all the sacred books is Pure Monotheism (Unifying God in worship). Unlike the Divine scriptures that preceded, the Qur’an has not been kept in the hands of any particular group or clergymen of Muslims which could have led to its misinterpretation or alteration. On the contrary, the Qur’an has always been within the reach of all Muslims who recite it in their daily prayers, and refer to it for all their concerns. The full text of the Qur’an is available in…

    The Sign of Jonah

    The name Jesus was given to Mary for her coming son. It was only after his baptism at the hands of John the Baptist that he – Jesus –  so-called to be the Christ. “When eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.” (Luke 2:21) Christ is not a name. It is a title. It is a translation of the Hebrew word Messiah, meaning “anointed.” The Greek word for “anointed” is Christos from which we get the word Christ.  Priests and kings were “anointed” when being consecrated to their office. The Bible confers…

    Islam Predates the Geneva Convention on Wartime Conduct

    Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) fourteen centuries ago ordered kind treatment for the prisoners. They could get their freedom if they paid a small redemption, and some without any thing (some taught Muslim children to read and write as redemption), and no mother was to be separated from her child, nor a husband from his wife. Prophet Muhammad commanded his companions to be kind to their prisoners, and to put them before themselves when it came to food.[1]God tells us to give food, in spite of our need for it (for the love of Him), to the poor, the orphan, and the captive. “And they give food in spite…

    The Glad Tidings of the Coming of Prophet Muhammad

    Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful. (Al-A`raf 7:157) Up until the birth of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), the Israelites were awaiting a…
