The Creation of man and the entire Universe is not a mere accident or the product of chance. The entire Universe manifests and points to the realization of an All-Powerful Creator. Therefore, it is man's duty to know his Creator, Allah.
Indeed, Allah (The Only True God) has told us about Himself through the Divine guidance He sent to human beings... More
The chief characteristic of the Islamic concept of life is that it does not recognize a conflict or a separation between the spiritual and the mundane. It does not recognize ritualism, secularism or materialism. For a Muslim, all aspects of life, the spiritual and the material, the State and the religion are interrelated,.. More
The submission of man to His Creator is the essence of Islam. The name "Islam" is chosen by God (Allah) and not by man. It is the same unifying Message revealed to all the Prophets and Messengers by Allah, and which they spread amongst their respective nations. It was revealed in its final form to Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam,.. More
Some Misconceptions about Women in Islam -I
The Quran says (what means): "Divorce is twice. Then [after that], either keep [her] in an acceptable manner or release [her] with good treatment. And it is not lawful for you to take anything of what you have given them unless both fear that they will not be able to keep [within].. More
Islam gave women rights and privileges at a time when only barbaric manners and values dominated.
Yet, some people argue that Islam has alienated women in some domains. In fact, this belief is a misconception. People who say so, may have read about it in a magazine or seen it on TV. A quick examination of the issues judged as unjust to women will certainly.. More
It often occurs to me that many of our sisters in Islam are not properly encouraged once they begin to observe the requirements of Hijab. It may be that a sister has been obliged to wear the Hijab without truly pondering over its superiority.
Perhaps she has reached the age of puberty and her parents have instructed her to wear it. Perhaps she has.. More
Muhammad Asad, Leopold Weiss, was born in Livow, Austria (later Poland) in 1900, and at the age of 22 made his visit to the Middle East. He later became an outstanding foreign correspondent for the Franfurtur Zeitung, and after his conversion to Islam travelled and worked throughout the Muslim world, from North Africa to as far East as Afghanistan.
The first few people who embraced Islam at the hands of the Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, (may Allah exalt his mention) were his wife Khadeejah, may Allah be pleased with her, his adopted son Zayd, may Allah be pleased with him, and his eleven-year-old cousin ‘Ali, may Allah be pleased with him.
Among the ones who.. More
In Islam, women have been given a high status which no past nation ever achieved and which no subsequent nation has been able to attain, because the honor that Islam gives to humanity, includes men and women equally. They are equal before the rulings of Allah in this world and they will be equal with regard to His reward and punishment in the Hereafter... More
Neo-Darwinists propound improbable new scenarios in their efforts to keep Darwinism alive

The neo-Darwinist model, which we shall take as the “mainstream” theory of evolution today, argues that life has evolved through two naturalistic mechanisms: “natural selection” and “mutation”. The basic assertion of the theory is as follows: Natural selection and mutation are two complementary mechanisms. The origin.. More
To an English-speaking audience, Islam is often advertised as a 'monotheistic religion in the tradition of Judaism and Christianity,' and we often, with the best of intentions, add: "The difference is, we only believe in One God."
I am afraid, however, that this fails to capture the essence of Tawheed, Islam's concept of monotheism. It.. More
There is no concrete fossil evidence to support the “ape-man” image, which is unceasingly indoctrinated by the media and evolutionist academic circles. With brushes in their hands, evolutionists produce imaginary creatures, yet the fact that these drawings have no matching fossils constitutes a serious problem for them. One of.. More
According to various reports in the Arab press, a wave of Americans has converted to Islam since September 11.

People answer these questions in different ways. Some people believe the purpose of life is getting wealthy. However, what will be the purpose of their life after collecting millions of dollars? If the purpose of life is to become wealthy, there will be no purpose after becoming wealthy.
