    Why can’t Prophet Muhammad be the author of the Qur’an?

    The Qur’an is a book of over 600 pages. It covers a wide range of topics. It was revealed gradually over a period of 23 years. So, if a man would have written the Qur’an, we would already have a number of problems. If you are going to write a book like the Qur’an, and claim that it is from God, you shouldn’t make any mistakes. The book should not contradict itself and you should keep its message consistent gradually over a 23 year period. The grammar must be the same and the style must remain the same. If the Qur’an is not from God, he should write it himself.…

    Language and Religion Equity

    Truth is the Word That Matches Reality: While traveling around the world, the strange use of some terms by some people to identify oneself or others always caught my attention. I remember facing funny situations because of the housemaid’s definition of her friends, cousins, and people from her village as her brothers, until one day I jokingly told her: What a big number of brothers and sisters you have, you are fit to form a soccer team. I do not, of course, deny human brotherhood, but the Islamic religion taught me that clarity and putting things straight in its correct positions is the base for a healthy life that is…

    Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom

    The need for religion is greater than the need for food and drink. A person is by nature a religious person. If he does not find the true religion, he will then invent a religion for himself, similar to what happened with the pagan religions created by humankind. Human beings need security in this life, just as they need protection after death; the true religion gives its followers complete safety in this life and the Hereafter. The measures of the true religion: Belief in God: It is essential for a person to have faith in a deity, whether the belief in the true God or in any false deity. He…

    Teachings of Islam

    Nothing in Islam’s teachings lead people to atheism; there are no mysteries or ambiguities in Islam that confuse the mind. Islam is simple and solid. The teachings of Islam are summarized as follows: Islam teaches that the universe has one God. He is the Creator of the universe and what it contains. Nothing is like Him. The Muslim must worship his Creator alone by communicating with Him directly upon repentance from sin or seeking help, not through a priest, saint, or mediator. God is the Most Merciful to His creatures, more than a mother to her children, so He forgives them whenever they sincerely repent to Him. It is the…

    Secrets of Ramadan

    I was astonished one day that a French Catholic woman had a strong hatred for the month of Ramadan, since her Muslim husband does not perform any of the pillars of Islam except fasting, and this lady could not prevent him from doing that, even though he lives far away from any social influence as he lives outside his country. One day, she angrily said in front of a group of Muslim women: I can’t stand this month. I had a conviction at that time that a person’s extreme hatred of a ritual in Islam means that this ritual has secrets, great virtue, and has a special importance to God,…

    The Ultimate Truth

    One day, someone told me: “There is no absolute truth”, as there is no true religion; all religions are equal and correct. All paths lead to God. There is no right or wrong for anything in existence. All principles in reality are relative, not absolute. I told him: Are you entirely sure about that? He said: Yes. I told him: You just mentioned an absolute statement. This itself confirms the existence of the absolute. He said: The absence of absolute truth is the only truth. A person can believe whatever he wants as long as he does not impose his views on others. I told him: Your statement itself is…

    The fall of false gods in Corona times

    Indeed, God will complete his light, but the disbelievers will still dislike it: One day in Africa at the language center, I was frustrated about the situation our world had reached, which is avoiding God’s religion and turning to other religions by asking an object or a saint or obeying priests that wouldn’t benefit them nor harm them. I was engrossed in my thoughts. Suddenly, a Muslim French language teacher interrupted me by asking about the reason behind my deep thinking. I answered him: “What bothers me and causes me to overthink is that people are ignorant about God’s religion, and I feel that I have a responsibility towards that.…

    Religion and Science

    None is the victor but God: In our visit to Al-hambra palace in Granada, we found a phrase engraved on the walls which said “None is the victor but Allah (The One True God)“. My eyes burst into tears because the breeze of the glorious history of Muslims was around everywhere. I imagined the days of yore when Muslim scientists used to teach the Arabs and the western world medicine, pharmacy, geometry, astronomy, and poetry. As a matter of fact, Muslims had also established the first university all over Europe in Spain. Still in my imagination, I also experienced the days of Abdul-Rahman Ad-Dakhil[1], whose army girded Italy and France;…

    We have not sent you except as a mercy to the worlds

    Indeed, you are of a great moral character: I have always been contemplating the praise of Almighty God for the morals of His Messenger Muhammad (peace upon him). I was hoping that I could understand the magnificence of these morals; I wanted to understand the brilliance in the personality of this great Prophet. Eventually, when my mother died, I felt extreme sorrow. It would’ve almost destroyed my life if it wasn’t for God’s mercy on me. Despite that I was already married and I did not need her care, missing her still made me lose a desire to talk to people. I felt that the whole world was tightening around…

    My Lord is Most Merciful and Compassionate

    We feed you only for the countenance of God: I remember in the first two years of our stay in Lagos, Nigeria, we lived in hotel apartments so that it would be easy for us to look for a suitable house near the kids’ schools. Usually, after I came back from any trip, I was keen to bring simple presents for all janitors and the workers, and share with them food and drinks. At that time, spreading the word of Islam (da’wa) was not in my mind at all; my intention was only to get close to God by giving gifts. When we decided to leave that place in order…
