    Re: Very useful threads and links for those looking into Islam

    I hope all the people that are wanting to research and look into Islam find these threads and links very useful and beneficial.
    One should look into Islam with an open heart and mind and not rule it or reject it out without even looking into it properly and deeply.
    More people are accepting Islam particularly in the west than ANY other faith or belief in this world and theres got to be a GOOD reason for that, have'nt you ever wondered? Well look into the Qur'an and Islam deeply and properly for yourself with an open heart and mind and you will find out for yourself why. I promise you, you will NOT be dissapointed. Thank you for reading.

    I just want to leave you with some beautiful verses from the Qur'an from Almighty Allah the Master of the Universe:

    "The heavens and the earth were ordered
    rightly, and were made subservient to man,
    including the sun, the moon, the stars, and
    day and night. Every heavenly body moves in
    an orbit assigned to it by God and never
    digresses, making the universe an orderly
    cosmos whose life and existence, diminution
    and expansion, are totally determined by the
    Creator."
    [Holy Quran 30:22]


    *{Behold! in the creation of the heavens and
    the earth; in the alternation of the night
    and the day; in the sailing of the ships
    through the ocean for the profit of mankind;
    in the rain which God Sends down from the
    skies, and the life which He gives therewith
    to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of
    all kinds that He scatters through the earth;
    in the change of the winds, and the clouds
    which they Trail like their slaves between
    the sky and the earth;- [Here] indeed are
    signs for a people that are wise.}*

    [Holy Qur’an says 2:164]

              This is no exaggeration. If you want those looking into Islam to immediately convert to Islam ask them to read this book: “They are Either Extremely Smart or Extremely Ignorant”. The good news is that this book is an open source book and can be downloaded here: http://extremelysmart.wordpress.com/download-my-book/

                Re: Very useful threads and links for those looking into Islam

                What they say about the Quran

                Humanity has received the Divine guidance through two channels: firstly the word of Allah, secondly the Prophets who were chosen by Allah to communicate His will to human beings. These two things have always been going together and attempts to know the will of Allah by neglecting either of these two have always been misleading. The Hindus neglected their prophets and paid all attention to their books that proved only word puzzles which they ultimately lost. Similarly, the Christians, in total disregard to the Book of Allah, attached all importance to Christ and thus not only elevated him to Divinity, but also lost the very essence of TAWHEED (monotheism) contained in the Bible.

                As a matter of fact the main scriptures revealed before the Qur'an, i.e., the Old Testament and the Gospel, came into book-form long after the days of the Prophets and that too in translation. This was because the followers of Moses and Jesus made no considerable effort to preserve these Revelations during the life of their Prophets. Rather they were written long after their death. Thus what we now have in the form of the Bible (The Old as well as the New Testament) is translations of individuals' accounts of the original revelations which contain additions and deletions made by the followers of the said Prophets. On the contrary, the last revealed Book, the Qur'an, is extant in its original form. Allah Himself guaranteed its preservation and that is why the whole of the Qur'an was written during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) himself though on separate pieces of palm leaves, parchments, bones, etc...

                Moreover, there were tens of thousands of companions of the Prophet who memorized the whole Qur'an and the Prophet himself used to recite to the Angel Gabriel once a year and twice when he was about to die. The first Caliph Abu Bakr entrusted the collection of the whole Qur'an in one volume to the Prophet's scribe, Zaid Ibn Thabit. This volume was with Abu Bakr till his death. Then it was with the second Caliph Umar and after him it came to Hafsa, the Prophet's wife. It was from this original copy that the third Caliph Uthman prepared several other copies and sent them to different Muslim territories. The Qur'an was so meticulously preserved because it was to be the Book of guidance for humanity for all times to come. That is why it does not address the Arabs alone in whose language it was revealed. It speaks to man as a human being:

                "O Man! What has seduced you from your Lord." The practicability of the Qur'anic teachings is established by the examples of Muhammad (PBUH) and the good Muslims throughout the ages. The distinctive approach of the Qur'an is that its instructions are aimed at the general welfare of man and are based on the possibilities within his reach. In all its dimensions the Qur'anic wisdom is conclusive. It neither condemns nor tortures the flesh nor does it neglect the soul. It does not humanize God nor does it deify man. Everything is carefully placed where it belongs in the total scheme of creation.

                Actually the scholars who allege that Muhammad (PBUH) was the author of the Qur'an claim something which is humanly impossible. Could any person of the sixth century C.E. utter such scientific truths as the Qur'an contains? Could he describe the evolution of the embryo inside the uterus so accurately as we find it in modern science?

                Secondly, is it logical to believe that Muhammad (PBUH), who up to the age of forty was marked only for his honesty and integrity, began all of a sudden the authorship of a book matchless in literary merit and the equivalent of which the whole legion of the Arab poets and orators of highest calibre could not produce? And lastly, is it justified to say that Muhammad (PBUH) who was known as AL-AMEEN (The Trustworthy) in his society and who is still admired by the non-Muslim scholars for his honesty and integrity, came forth with a false claim and on that falsehood could train thousands of men of character, integrity and honesty, who were able to establish the best human society on the surface of the earth?

                Surely, any sincere and unbiased searcher of truth will come to believe that the Qur'an is the revealed Book of Allah.

                Without necessarily agreeing with all that they said, we furnish here some opinions of important non-Muslim scholars about the Qur'an. Readers can easily see how the modern world is coming closer to reality regarding the Qur'an. We appeal to all open-minded scholars to study the Qur'an in the light of the aforementioned points. We are sure that any such attempt will convince the reader that the Qur'an could never be written by any human being.

                "However often we turn to it [the Qur'an] at first disgusting us each time afresh, it soon attracts, astounds, and in the end enforces our reverence... Its style, in accordance with its contents and aim is stern, grand, terrible - ever and anon truly sublime -- Thus this book will go on exercising through all ages a most potent influence."
                Goethe, quoted in T.P. Hughes' DICTIONARY OF ISLAM, p. 526.

                "The Koran admittedly occupies an important position among the great religious books of the world. Though the youngest of the epoch-making works belonging to this class of literature, it yields to hardly any in the wonderful effect which it has produced on large masses of men. It has created an all but new phase of human thought and a fresh type of character. It first transformed a number of heterogeneous desert tribes of the Arabian peninsula into a nation of heroes, and then proceeded to create the vast politico-religious organizations of the Muhammadan world which are one of the great forces with which Europe and the East have to reckon today."
                G. Margoliouth, Introduction to J.M. Rodwell's, THE KORAN, New York: Everyman's Library, 1977, p. vii.

                "A work, then, which calls forth so powerful and seemingly incompatible emotions even in the distant reader - distant as to time, and still more so as a mental development - a work which not only conquers the repugnance which he may begin its perusal, but changes this adverse feeling into astonishment and admiration, such a work must be a wonderful production of the human mind indeed and a problem of the highest interest to every thoughtful observer of the destinies of mankind."
                Dr. Steingass, quoted in T.P. Hughes' DICTIONARY OF ISLAM, pp. 526-527.

                "The above observation makes the hypothesis advanced by those who see Muhammad as the author of the Qur'an untenable. How could a man, from being illiterate, become the most important author, in terms of literary merits, in the whole of Arabic literature? How could he then pronounce truths of a scientific nature that no other human being could possibly have developed at that time, and all this without once making the slightest error in his pronouncement on the subject?"
                Maurice Bucaille, THE BIBLE, THE QUR'AN AND SCIENCE, 1978, p. 125.

                "Here, therefore, its merits as a literary production should perhaps not be measured by some preconceived maxims of subjective and aesthetic taste, but by the effects which it produced in Muhammad's contemporaries and fellow countrymen. If it spoke so powerfully and convincingly to the hearts of his hearers as to weld hitherto centrifugal and antagonistic elements into one compact and well-organized body, animated by ideas far beyond those which had until now ruled the Arabian mind, then its eloquence was perfect, simply because it created a civilized nation out of savage tribes, and shot a fresh woof into the old warp of history."
                Dr. Steingass, quoted in T.P. Hughes' DICTIONARY OF ISLAM, p.528.

                "In making the present attempt to improve on the performance of my predecessors, and to produce something which might be accepted as echoing however faintly the sublime rhetoric of the Arabic Koran, I have been at pains to study the intricate and richly varied rhythms which - apart from the message itself - constitute the Koran's undeniable claim to rank amongst the greatest literary masterpieces of mankind... This very characteristic feature - 'that inimitable symphony,' as the believing Pickthall described his Holy Book, 'the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy' - has been almost totally ignored by previous translators; it is therefore not surprising that what they have wrought sounds dull and flat indeed in comparison with the splendidly decorated original."
                Arthur J. Arberry, THE KORAN INTERPRETED, London: Oxford University Press, 1964,

                "A totally objective examination of it [the Qur'an] in the light of modern knowledge, leads us to recognize the agreement between the two, as has been already noted on repeated occasions. It makes us deem it quite unthinkable for a man of Muhammad's time to have been the author of such statements on account of the state of knowledge in his day. Such considerations are part of what gives the Qur'anic Revelation its unique place, and forces the impartial scientist to admit his inability to provide an explanation which calls solely upon materialistic reasoning."
                Maurice Bucaille, THE QUR'AN AND MODERN SCIENCE, 1981, p. 18.

                              Re: Very useful threads and links for those looking into Islam

                              Hi,

                              The Qur'an is definately not a "scientifically accurate" book! Just look at what it says about embryology. Mohammad said that semen is produced between the rib and the backbone and that a fetus starts off as a blood clot, both of which are completely untrue. He also says that a fetus' bones are formed before they are covered with skin. This too is incorrect.

                              "Now let man but think From what he is created! He is created from A drop emitted-Proceedings from between The backbone and the ribs." Qur'an 86:5-7.

                              He also says that shooting stars are fiery missiles that Allah uses to shoot genies so they can't get into heaven. How can you believe this is true?

                              "And We have (From of old), Adorned the lowest heaven With Lamps, and We Have made such (Lamps) (As) missiles to drive Away the Evil Ones, And have prepared for them The Penalty Of the Blazing Fire." Qur'an 15:16-18

                              Abu Qatada mentioning Allah's saying: "And we have Adorned the nearest Heaven with lamps" (67:5) said: "The creation of these stars is for three purposes, i.e. as decoration of the sky, as missiles to hit the devils, and as signs to guide travelers. So, if anybody tries to find a different interpretation, he is mistaken and just wastes his efforts and troubles himself with what is beyond his limited knowledge." Sahih Al-Bukhari, Number 3198.

                              He also says that Alexander the Great followed the sun to the west until it set and it says the sun drops into a muddy lake. That's ridiculous!

                              They ask thee concerning Dhu al Qarnayn (Alexander the Great). Say, "I will rehearse to you Something of his story." Verily We established his power On earth, and We gave him The ways and the means To all ends. One (such) way he followed, Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, He found it set In a spring of murky water: Near it he found a People." Qur'an 18:83-86

                              Here are some verses to consider...

                              The Prophet (the blessing and peace of Allah be upon him) said: "If a house fly falls in the drink of any one of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease." Sahih Al-Bukhari, Dr. Muhammad Matraji, tr. (New Delhi: Islamic Book Service, 2002), Number 3320.

                              The Prophet (the blessing and peace of Allah be upon him) said: "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits [i.e. 90 feet] tall. . . . People have been decreasing in stature since Adam's creation." Ibid., Number 3326.

                              Allah's Apostle (the blessing and peace of Allah be upon him) said: "The first group of people who will enter Paradise, will be glittering like the full moon, and those who follow them, will glitter like the most brilliant star in the sky. . . . All of them will look alike and will resemble their father Adam (in stature), sixty cubits tall." Ibid., Number 3327.

                              As we were sitting during the night with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him), a meteor shot gave a dazzling light. Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: "What did you say in the pre-Islamic days when there was such a shot (of meteor)?" They said: "Allah and His Messenger know best (the actual position), but we, however, used to say that that very night a great man had been born and a great man had died," whereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: "(These meteors) are shot neither at the death of anyone nor on the birth of anyone. Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, issues Command when He decides to do a thing. Then (the Angels) supporting the Throne sing His glory, then sing the dwellers of heaven who are near to them until this glory of God reaches them who are in the heaven of this world. Then those who are near the supporters of the Throne ask these supporters of the Throne: 'What your Lord has said?' And they accordingly inform them what He says. Then the dwellers of heaven seek information from them until this information reaches the heaven of this world. In this process of transmission (the jinn snatches) what he manages to overhear and he carries it to his friends. And when the Angels see the jinn they attack them with meteors." Sahih Muslim, Abdul Hamid Siddiqi, tr., Number 5538.

                              If I were a Muslim I would never say that the Qur'an is scientifically accurate. It doesn't take long for someone to realize that it's a farce.

                              Peace and Blessings,
