Why some Muslims fear and oppose rationality heavily? They claim that Islam isn’t compatible with rationality, because the minds of a human is limited. They further claim that the only way to be ‘safe’ is only by following their religious scholars, not by rationality. Don’t they know that Allah told that His signs are for those who give thought?
Can we be good without God? A question often posed by the modern human. Atheists, especially, argue that you can be good without God. Even some religious people have this view.
In Islam, ethics is termed as ‘akhlaq’. It stemmed from the root ‘khalq’, meaning ‘creation’. Therefore, if we have akhlaq in our lives, we have served the purpose of the creation- khalq.
Why are ethics important?
…وَلَقَدْ بَعَثْنَا فِي كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ رَسُولًا أَنِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَاجْتَنِبُوا الطَّاغُوتَ“Verily, We have sent among every nation a messenger (proclaiming): ‘Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghoot (all false deities, idol worship etc.)….”(Quran, Al-Nahl, 16:36) The need to identify and re-examine the real meaning and nature or ‘syirk’, or in other words Read More
Should someone be killed just because he or she said something offensive about religion? What does the Quran actually say about blasphemy?
In the name of Allah, Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem In 2012, there was a documentary entitled “Islam: The Untold Story”, written and presented by historian Tom Holland. He made rather bizarre statements on the origins of Islam. Tom Holland argues that it is not Islam that gave birth to the Arab Empire (the Islamic Civilization like Umayyad Read More

Bismiillahirrahminirrahim أَفَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَٰهَهُ هَوَاهُ وَأَضَلَّهُ اللَّهُ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ وَخَتَمَ عَلَىٰ سَمْعِهِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَجَعَلَ عَلَىٰ بَصَرِهِ غِشَاوَةً فَمَنْ يَهْدِيهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ اللَّهِ ۚ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ“Have you seen him who takes his low desire as his god, and Allah has made him wrong in having knowledge and has set a seal upon his ear and Read More
Who doesn’t know about the ongoing issue on gay rights and that people are fighting about? We can see today even straight people are supporting gay rights and LGBT movements.
Yes, we all know that but the question is: How do these organisations existed in the first place, and how did they got so strong?
Let’s sit back, relax and think for a while about the creation of the universe and how we are actually meant to deal with it. Let’s venture through a unique point of view on it. I’m not asking that you should agree with what I’m saying, but I’m just hoping that this view may change the way we view things. In fact, a critical thinker should always look at things from many angles.
So, we were created on this Earth, and we spend our life here. We cannot spawn just by chance because that’s impossible. There must be someone or something that created us, and what created us is God.
The second last Sunday, I met a man named Eric. He lives in Cyprus but was born in Mauritius. He works in the same company as my mom. My mom introduced the whole family to him on that day, and I have to say that he is one of the most wonderful person I’ve ever met. We met again the last Thursday before he headed back home to Cyprus and I learnt few very important things from him.
We talked mostly about something what people hardly talk about- religion. When my mom asked him what religion is he following right now, he swiftly said “I’m nothing”. He however was born in a Christian family and his parents are devoted believers. He has read the Quran, the Bible (haven’t finished), and is about to read the Gita.
The declaration of Human rights by the United Nations (UN) is sought as one of the greatest achievement in human moral and the progress of humanity since the second world war. Truth to be told however, although with the ongoing human rights, human moral and behavior is declining to its lowest.
We don’t have to go very far to see this. Liberty and democracy is one of the main pillars of the so-called human rights. In the name of liberty, same-sex marriage is legalised, not married same-sex relationship is legalised, sex without marriage (zina) is legalised, wearing tight clothes on the streets are legalised, alcohol consumption is legalised, gambling is legalised, riba is legalised.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade they say, but then, how? And what’s the significance behind this so called saying that has been going around for centuries? Does this really proof that life IS hard for everyone and there will be a point in our lives that makes us think life is…sour in general? Read More
