Faith and Certitude

Apostles of God claim to believe in God. Saints too make a similar claim. Ordinary believers also appear to be quite certain about their beliefs. Agnostics on the other hand, admit candidly that they do not know whether God exists or not, while atheists deny outright the existence of God. So, there is a whole spectrum of people who represent different levels of faith and certitude regarding the existence of God. The relevance of the issue of certainty pertaining to God lies in the fact that the level of this certainty happens to influence both our standard of worship as well as our conduct in...

Islam: Religion of Peace or Terror?

Islam is a religion of Peace and Compassion. Unfortunately due to terrorist acts of some Extremists groups, Islam has been misunderstood. Nowadays, the way some so-called Muslim groups present Islam does not represent the real teachings of the religion in any shape or form. It is very much clear that such terror activities are conducted with the sole desire to fulfill their vested interests by falsely using the name of Islam to justify their hate-filled acts. Islam is completely against compulsion and extremism; rather, it advocates peace and harmony at all levels of society. It is quite...

God in the 21st Century

Do we need God in the 21 st century? What role can religion play today in creating a moral society? Is not the concept of God and religion superfluous in this era of human development? Is God a Human Invention? The fundamental argument of atheism is that God is a myth. It is said that the concept of God, which is the basis of all religions, is the creation of man. This argument, however, is void of reason. Not being a place for a detailed discussion, it should, however, suffice to say that everything that begins to exist must have a cause preceding it. It is totally foolish to say that...

Effort vs Natural Aptitude

There are some people who attain exalted spiritual station without effort and striving on their part.

When that fire reaches its climax, they fervently desire that the glory of God be manifested upon the earth, and this becomes...

Veil (Hijab)

Islam stresses the relationship between body and mind. In covering the body one shields the heart from impurities. Men are instructed to restrain or avert their eyes from women, and women are expected to wear loose outer garments and to cover their heads and bosoms. The ultimate goal of veiling is righteousness of the heart. The purpose of hijab (veiling) in Islam is primarily to inspire modesty in both men and women. Women are admonished in the Holy Qur’an to cover their heads and to pull their coverings over their bosoms. Men are instructed in the Holy Qur’an to lower their gazes. In...

Developing love and relationship with Allah is essential for the survival of Mankind

Insaan (man) is, in fact, a combination of two kinds of ‘uns’ (love). One is love for Allah and the other, love for mankind. If a man does not have any love for Allah in his heart but he professes love and sympathy for mankind, he cannot be called a complete human being. Similarly, if a man claims to have love for Allah in his heart but he has no love and sympathy for His creation, even then such a man doesn’t deserve to be called a complete human being; rather his very claim will prove false in such a case. It is impossible that a man, who claims to have a relationship with and love for...
