    The Upright Religion

    But those who believe, love Allah more:  During a visit to one of Hong Kong’s distinguished attractions, we found people flocking to pray to Buddha statue and present offerings to it. I was always wondering how Gautama used the word “Buddha” in the context of the word “Prophet” which refers to a person who is enlightened by the divine revelation. He told his followers: I am not the first Buddha and will not be the last. When the Buddhist feels a lot of fear, he resorts to the power in the sky to ask for help.[1] In the middle of the crowd, while I was thinking about the beliefs of…

    Arguing with you concerning the truth after it had become clear

    What is revealed to you from your Lord is the truth: As a child, I have always been keen in knowing the right religion. Due to my mom’s keen in watching the religious programs at the time, I always asked her about that topic. I was born in Kuwait. As a society that receives expatriates from different countries, it contained different religions and cultures. I always pondered the adherence of the followers of each religion in declaring that theirs was the true religion. And I used to say to myself: The true religion ought to be one; What is this ‘religion’? Why is Islam the accurate religion? And with this…

    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 Allah! 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…

    The Concept Of The Trinity In The Bible

    The only verse in the Bible that was taken as an evidence for the Concept of the Trinity is: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.  And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” (1 John 5:7-8 KJV)  However, it is very well known now that this verse is a later insertion of the Church. All recent versions of the Bible and most others do not include this verse. Bart Ehrman said:[1] “…,this represents the most obvious instance of a theologically motivated corruption…

    The Pure Monotheism

     “Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah (the Creator) and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.” (Quran 2:136) The belief in the Oneness of God – as a theological movement – began at a very early stage in the history, and in fact it preceded the belief in trinity by many decades, [1] and never was found in the teachings…

    Islam Is The Religion Of Freedom

    Freedom to choose religion One of the fundamental rights in Islam is that everyone has the right to choose the religion he wants to embrace. “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong.” (Qur’an2:256) Fighting Slavery In the pre-Islamic days Slaves were commercial goods, and slavery was an established system. It was a source of sustenance for thousands. To the aristocracy, the number of slaves in the household was a symbol of status. Islam could have used force which may be able to achieve submission but it without doubt will cause animosity. Islam’s war against slavery aimed at changing…
