Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you another proven scientific concept elicited in the Quran: The sex of a baby.

1400 years ago people would blame mother’s for giving birth to a daughter instead of a son. However, the Quran revealed that it was the male sperm that actually determines what the sex of a baby will be to dispel these cultural myths.

In the Quran it states, “And that He creates the two mates – the male and female -From a sperm-drop when it is emitted” (Surah Najm, 53: 45-46).

In reproductive biology the process of how a baby’s sex is determined is through genetics, specifically the sex chromosomes. The female has the XX pair of sex chromosomes, while the male has the XY pair of sex chromosomes. Due to the female egg having the XX pair of chromosomes it will donate one of the X’s for the baby while the male sperm containing the XY pair can either donate an X or a Y chromosome. The fusion of the egg and sperm creates either a female, XX, or male, XY. It is clear that the sperm is the determining factor of whether or not a baby will be male or female.

Now lets go back 1400 years ago. No one had the technology or science to even prove that it was the sperm that determines the sex of a baby. It was only until a couple of decades ago where scientists capable of examining the molecular mechanics of this process was to fully prove that the sperm determines the sex of the baby.

Insha’Allah we all open up our hearts, eyes, and mind to see the wonders and majestic nature of the Quran and that we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, guidance, protection, and Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

Let me start by saying that I do not want to start by fighting or debating people. I would like people to open up their eyes, heart, and mind  and really question their faith. By questioning your faith, and if you truly want to find truth and be guided, you will be able to see that the Bible cannot be the true words of God due to the fact that it consistently contradicts itself. If the Bible contradicts itself then how can this be the true words of God if God is All-Mighty and will not contradict himself.

In the Quran you will not be able to find one contradiction due to the authentic preservation of the original text. In the Quran it even states to put this book to the test. It states that bring forth another book and try to imitate it. However, no other book has been able to even compare to the perfection of the Quran.

The Quran states, ” And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah , if you should be truthful.” (Surah Baqarah: 2:23).

Due to the imperfection of the bible because of the constant re translations,  insertions, polemic fabrications,  subtle forgery,  and inconsistent misrepresentation of its own words through various languages it is clear that any modern day Bible contains various sources of contradictions. However since the Quran is preserved in its original Arabic form there is not one change in it and this is a promise of God.

In the Bible there are over hundreds of contradictions, but I will only list a few and allow you to do your own research. Insha’Allah Allah will guide you towards Him.

Take a look at this site if you want to see more:

http://www.answering-christianity.com/101_bible_contradictions.htm

Here are a list of contradictions in the Bible:

1. Who incited David to count the fighting men of Israel?

  • God did (2 Samuel 24: 1)
  • Satan did (I Chronicles 2 1:1)

2. In that count how many fighting men were found in Israel?

  • Eight hundred thousand (2 Samuel 24:9)
  • One million, one hundred thousand (I Chronicles 21:5)

3. How many fighting men were found in Judah?

  • Five hundred thousand (2 Samuel 24:9)
  • Four hundred and seventy thousand (I Chronicles 21:5)

4. God sent his prophet to threaten David with how many years of famine?

  • Seven (2 Samuel 24:13)
  • Three (I Chronicles 21:12)

5. How old was Ahaziah when he began to rule over Jerusalem?

  • Twenty-two (2 Kings 8:26)
  • Forty-two (2 Chronicles 22:2)

6. How old was Jehoiachin when he became king of Jerusalem?

  • Eighteen (2 Kings 24:8)
  • Eight (2 Chronicles 36:9)

7. How long did he rule over Jerusalem?

  • Three months (2 Kings 24:8)
  • Three months and ten days (2 Chronicles 36:9)

8. The chief of the mighty men of David lifted up his spear and killed how many men at one time?

  • Eight hundred (2 Samuel 23:8)
  • Three hundred (I Chronicles 11: 11)

9. When did David bring the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem? Before defeating the Philistines or after?

  • After (2 Samuel 5 and 6)
  • Before (I Chronicles 13 and 14)

 

As you can see there are many inconsistencies with the Bible. Now it is up to you to decide whether God would contradict himself and be inconsistent. Although, we all know that God is All-Mighty and Perfect, thus He cannot contradict himself and be inconsistent with His words.

Insha’Allah we ask for guidance and protection from Allah.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you a wonderful hadith that tells us how we can recite the entire Quran in less than 3 minutes. Some of you may say that is impossible, but it is not because our beloved Prophet(SAW) has narrated to us a method.

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radhiallahu anho) narrates that the Prophet Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: The Surah Al-Zilzal is equal to the half of the Holy Qur’an, the Surah Al-Ikhlas is equal to the one third of the Holy Qur’an and the Surah Al-Kafiroon is equal to the one fourth of the Holy Qur’an. (Tirmidhi: 2894)

Now if we do the math: 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 = 1.0833333

Technically it is a little more than the entire Quran.

These three surahs are very short and can be easily recited in 3 minutes or less.

Also do not forget that there is extra blessings and reward in just reciting a letter of the Quran:

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So lets strive to read the entire Quran everyday and Insha’Allah we turn back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, guidance, protection, and Junnh-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you ayats in the Quran that explain how the seas of this world cannot mix with each other. Now we have to remember that the Quran was revealed 1400 years ago where they did not have the technology to prove that the seas cannot intermingle. However recent oceanographer’s have proved and explained this phenomena.

In Surah Ar-Rahman it states, “He released the two seas, meeting [side by side];Between them is a barrier [so] neither of them transgresses.” (Quran: 55:19-20)

Oceanographer’s explain that due to the force of surface tension caused by the differences in density and salinity of two seas that meet a very thin barrier is produced that does not allow them to intermingle.

seas not mixing 1 seas not mixing 2

 

Insha’Allah we all open our hearts and eyes to the words of Allah(SWT) the one and only true creator of the heavens and the earth and that we turn back to him and ask for forgiveness, guidance, protection, mercy, and to enter us all into Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I want to write about the benefits of reciting and knowing Surah Yasin.

First of all just reciting and reading Quran has so much benefit in it.

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So with this being mentioned everyone should try to incorporate Quran in their lives and learn from it. Just try it at least once and slowly build upon it. The religion of Islam is powerful so don’t overdo it and burn yourself out, rather take a gradual process to do this.

So here are some hadiths on the benefits of Surah Yasin:

Anas (RA) reported Allah’s Messenger (saw) saying, “Everything has a heart and the heart of the Holy Qur’an is Yasin. Allah I will record anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Holy Qur’an ten times.” (Tirmidhi, Darimi)

The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, ‘Whoever recites Yasin once Allah will record the reward of reciting the Qur’an ten times.’[Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A & Dhahabi]

Maqal ibn Yasaar Muzani (RA) reported the Holy Prophet (saw) saying, “If anyone recites Yasin for Allah’s  pleasure, his past sins will be forgiven; so recite it on those who are dying.”( Baihaqi)

Aisha (RA) reports Rasulullah (saw) saying, “Indeed in the Noble Qur’an there is a surah which, for its reader will intercede and which will be a means of forgiveness for its listener. Listen carefully, it is Surah Yasin, in the Torah it is called Muimmah.”
It was enquired, “O’ Messenger of Allah r, what is Muimmah?” Rasulullah replied, “It contains for its reader the benefits of this world, it removes from him the dread of the next life, and it is called Dafiah and Qadhiyah.”
Again it was enquired, “How is this Surah Dafiah and Qadhiyah?” Rasulullah replied, “It takes away from its reader all afflictions and fulfills his need. Whoever recites it, it will be made equal to twenty pilgrimages. Whoever shall listen to it, it will be as thousand dinars, which he has given as charity in the path of Allah I. And whoever shall write it and then drink it, it will enter into his heart a thousand cures, a thousand radiant lights, a thousand times more increase in belief, a thousand mercies, a thousand blessings, a thousand times more increase in guidance, and will remove from him all diseases.” (Tha’labi, Tirmidhi in Nawadirul Usul)

Ummud Darda (RA) reports the Noble Prophet (saw) saying, “Over no person who is about to die and Surah Yasin is read upon them but Allah I lightens the difficulties of death for him.”( Qurtubi)

As you can see that there are many benefits to reciting and knowing this Surah. So to protect ourselves and to prepare ourselves let us try to learn more about Islam and pick up the Quran more often. Below is a link for you to purchase your own Quran and please check out our shopping page.

The Holy Qur’an: English Translation, Commentary and Notes with Full Arabic Text (English and Arabic Edition)

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you a verse in the Quran that talks about how the universe is expanding and that it is not static. I would like to also show that scientific breakthroughs from the 1920’s and on ward have shown using high powered telescopes to calculate the distance and velocity of spectral lines in the galaxies that are moving away from us, redshift lines, proving that the universe is expanding at a constant rate as exemplified in the Quran 1400 years ago. 1400 years ago we could not even fathom the idea of technology describing the universe above, let alone show how it is expanding. Thus leaving us to the conclusion that the Quran is the true incorruptible words of God.

In Surah Adh-Dhariyat it states, “And it is We Who have constructed the heaven with might, and verily, it is We Who are steadily expanding it.” (Quran, 51:47)

Now for the science. In the year 1929 Edwin Hubble was using telescopes to take exposures of spectra lines in the galaxies. There are two spectra lines: blueshift and redshift lines. Blueshift lines indicate how the galaxies move towards us, while redshift lines indicate how the galaxies move away from us. Edwin Hubble discovered that there were a few blueshift lines but an abundance of redshift lines. By taking note of this he calculated the distance and velocities of the spectral lines. As Hubble plotted a distance-velocity graph it came out as a linear function, indicating that universe is moving away from us at a constant rate. Hence the universe is expanding. Later researchers and scientist went out and did there own research and have proved that this phenomena is factual. If you would like to see how Edwin Hubble did his calculations, I provided a link below.

http://outreach.atnf.csiro.au/education/senior/cosmicengine/hubble.html#hubblelaw

As an interesting side note, Albert Einstein initially theorized that the universe is expanding. However he took back his theory because  his research indicated that the universe was either expanding or contracting and this would go against the prevailing concept at the time of the universe being static. So Einstein actually added a constant, called the cosmological constant, to adjust to the static universe theory. He deemed his initial theory as “the greatest blunder of my life”. Well Einstein it is actually not your greatest blunder, but one of your greatest achievements because you were initially right.

Insha’Allah, we open our hearts up and go back to Allah(SWT) and realize that he laid out his proofs for us so we may not go astray, thus insha’Allah we turn back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, guidance, protection, and to enter us into Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sisters’,

I would like to share with you this hadith in which the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wa salam) told about the nearing of the Day of Judgement.  I will only put up the part of the hadith which talks about earthquakes because the full hadith is long and delves into various other signs. I would also like to show you how this sign is mentioned in the Quran.

Abu Hurairah(radiallahu anhu) said, “The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa salam) said, The Hour will not come until the following events have come to pass until . . . earthquakes will increase . . . (Bukhari, Hasan)

Here is an english translation of Surah Al-Zalzalah: “When the earth is shaken with its [final] earthquake. And the earth discharges its burdens. And man says, “What is with it?” – That Day, it will report its news. Because your Lord has commanded it. That Day, the people will depart separated [into categories] to be shown [the result of] their deeds.So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.” (Quran: 99: 1-8).

Now if you look up the history of earthquakes and the occurrence of earthquakes the results may be a shocking. Many years ago earthquakes rarely happened, and now they are happening with many in one day.

The image below shows the trend of earthquakes from 1973 up until 2006, but the earthquakes have increased even more in 2013 as exemplified by real time data from the United States Geological Survey(This site is listed as a link below).

How can a scripture and a man be able to predict this increase in earth activity 1400 years ago, unless it was divinely inspired.

Insha’Allah, we will all come back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, mercy, guidance, protection, and paradise.

Benefits of Surah Al-Fatihah

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I want to write about the benefits of reciting and knowing Surah Al-Fatihah.

First of all just reciting and reading quran has so much benefit in it.

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So with this being mentioned everyone should try to incorporate Quran in their lives and learn from it. Just try it at least once and slowly build upon it. The religion of Islam is powerful so don’t overdo it and burn yourself out, rather take a gradual process to do this.

So here are some hadiths on the benefits of Surah Al-Fatihah:

Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) reported that when Allah’s Messenger (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) asked Ubayy ibn Ka’ab (radiAllahu anhu), “Do you want me to teach you a Surah the like of which has not been revealed in the Torah, the Injeel, the Zabur, nor the Qur’an?”, and also asked what he recited in his prayers. He replied Umm-ul Qur’an (Surah Fatihah) the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) proclaimed, ‘By Him in whose dominion my soul is, nothing like it has been revealed in the Torah, the Gospel, the Psalms, or the Qur’an and it is seven of the oft-repeated verses in the Mighty Qur’an which I have been given’ [at-Tirmidhi, Al-Hakim says that this hadith is Sahih on the conditions established by Imam Muslim (Tafseer Mazhari 1:30)]

Abu Saeed al-Khudr’i narrates that while on a journey we halted at a place. A girl came to us and said: “The chief of this tribe has been stung by a scorpion and our men are not present, is there anybody amongst you who can recite something upon him to treat him?” Then, one of our men went along with her although we did not think that he knew any such treatment. However, our friend went to the chief and recited something upon him and the chief was cured. Thereupon, the chief gave him thirty sheep and gave us all milk to drink. When he returned, we asked our friend: “Did you know anything to recite upon him to cure him?” He said: “No, I only recited Umm al-Kitab (i.e. Surah al-Fatihah) upon him.” We said that do not do anything until we reach Madinah and ask the Prophet regarding this (practice and reward-whether the sheep were lawful or not for us). Upon reaching Madinah, we narrated this to the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam), whereupon he remarked: “How did he come to know that Al-Fatihah can be used as a cure? (Rasulullah said this in astonishment) Distribute your reward amongst yourselves and allot a share for me as well. [Sahih al-Bukhari]

Abu Sulaiman says that once a group of Companions were in an expedition (ghazwa) when they happened to come across an epileptic person, who was unconscious. One of the Companions recited Surah Al-Fatiha and blew in his ear. The epileptic person immediately cured. When Sayyidana Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) was informed of this, he said: “It (Surah Al-Fatiha) is “The Mother of the Qur’an” (Umm al-Qur’an) and is a cure for every disease.” [This narration has been recorded by Ath-Thua’lbi from Abu Sulaiman, who narrated it from Muawiya bin Saleh (radhi Allah anhu), Tafseer Mazhari 1:31]

Anas (radhi Allah anhu) said: “When you recite Surah Al-Fatihah and Surah Al-Ikhlas upon lying on your bed, you will be safeguarded and should become fearless of every thing except death.”[Narrated by Baraa’, Tafseer Mazhari 1:31]

A man came to the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam), embraced Islam then returned to his people. On his way there were a group of men who had with them a mad man in iron manacles. The group said, that they heard that the travelers friend (i.e. Prophet Muhammad) had something good with him and so he exorcised the mad man with Surah al Fatiha, and he was cured. As reward they gave the traveler 100 sheep. He then returned to the Prophet and narrated the story. The Prophet asked if he did anything other than recite al-Fatiha, he said no. So the Prophet said that while these people make their livelihoods out of false incantations (i.e. worshipping false idols) the traveler earned the 100 sheep through something lawful; so he could keep the sheep.
[Abu Dawud 3398/a]

As you can see that there are many benefits to reciting and knowing this Surah. So to protect ourselves and to prepare ourselves let us try to learn more about Islam and pick up the Quran more often. Below is a link for you to purchase your own Quran and please check out our shopping page.

The Holy Qur’an: English Translation, Commentary and Notes with Full Arabic Text (English and Arabic Edition)

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you an amazing astronomical discovery about how at the surface of the spherical earth the Ka’ba’s coordinates are at the dead center of the earth. The energy levels and distance of circumference between all quarters of the earth can trace back to the Ka’ba.

In the Quran it states, “We have certainly seen the turning of your face, [O Muhammad], toward the heaven, and We will surely turn you to a qiblah with which you will be pleased. So turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram. And wherever you [believers] are, turn your faces toward it [in prayer]. Indeed, those who have been given the Scripture well know that it is the truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do.” (surah baqarah: 2:144).

The direction that every muslim faces in a unified manner no matter what country a person is in is the Ka’ba: the topological center of the earth.

Here are some videos that explain the science behind how the Ka’ba is the center of the topological earth.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I want to write about the benefits of reciting and knowing Ayatul Kursi.

First of all just reciting and reading quran has so much benefit in it.

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So with this being mentioned everyone should try to incorporate Quran in their lives and learn from it. Just try it at least once and slowly build upon it. The religion of Islam is powerful so don’t overdo it and burn yourself out, rather take a gradual process to do this.

So here are some hadiths on the benefits of Ayatul Kursi:

Rasool Allah peace be upon him said, “Whoever recites Aayatul Kursi after every Fard (Fard Salat). Only death is keeping him/her from entering Jannah. (As soon as he/she dies, will enter Jannah)
(Nisa’i, Ibne Habban, Ibnelsani A’n Abi Amatah Albahili Radiallah Anhu)

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
“Everything has a hump and the hump of the Quran is surah al-Baqarah. There is a verse in it that is the
chief of all verses of the Qur’an, the ayat ul-Kursi.”
(Tirmidhi 2887)

Abu Hurairah reports:
“Whenever you go to bed, recite “Ayat-al-Kursi”– ‘Allaahu laa ilaaha illaa huwal-Hayyul Qayyuum’ till you finish the whole verse. (If you do so), Allah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you and no satan will come near you till morning. “
(Bukhari Book #38, Hadith #505)

Wathala (ALLAH be well pleased with him) reported that one day a man came to the Prophet (ALLAH bless him and give him peace) and asked, “What is the most excellent verse of the Quran?” The Prophet (ALLAH bless him and give him peace) replied, “Ayat al-Kursi.”
[Sunan Abi Dawud: Fada’il al-Qur’an. Imam Abu Dawud]

Anas (ALLAH be well pleased with him) reports that the Prophet (ALLAH bless him and give him peace) said that Ayat al-Kursi is equal to a quarter of the Quran.[Tafsir al-Mazhari: Under Ayat al-Kursi. Qadi Thana’ullah Pani-pathi]

As you can see that there are many benefits to reciting and knowing this Ayat. So to protect ourselves and to prepare ourselves let us try to learn more about Islam and pick up the Quran more often. Below is a link for you to purchase your own Quran and please check out our shopping page.
