There is a difference between Rahmah (mercy) and Muhabbah (love). The Rahmah of Allah is for everyone believing and disbelieving (in this world): "My mercy encompasses all things" (7:156) That is the meaning of the word Ar-Rahman. Everyone is provided for in this world through Allah's mercy, and everyone is given an opportunity. However, the ...

That all depends on whether you choose to put your faith in Allah or in the Scientific Method. The Scientific Method is a great tool for understanding the universe and all of Creation, but it is limited in that it can only apply to things that can be observed. It is useless for understanding al-ghaib. Allah, on the other hand, has no such limitations. He ...

There are a few verses in the qur'an that create a confusion and which caused a difference of opinion among theologians, sectarians etc. Among these verse you may find the three verses you've quoted in your question. A deeper look into "breathed into him of My soul وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِنْ رُوحِي" This statement as provided in your question has been repeated ...

There is a certain delicacy when Quran speaks about Allah. I think Surah Tawhid is a great measure. Specifically و لم یکن له کفوا احد. If our spirit was of the same essence of Allah then we could countering Allah in that aspect. From the book of Al-kafi: From Imam Al-Sadiq: الصّادق (علیه السلام)- عَنِ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَاعَبْدِاللَّهِ (...

The general principle in Islamic jurisprudence, when not dealing with acts of worship, is that everything is halal unless there's evidence showing it to be haram. The concept of marriage, which included polygynous marriages, was already established in the pre-Islamic period and would've been well-known to the people of the time. The only proof from the Qur'...

From my knowledge and what I've read so far, it is haram to believe that a coin toss would be influenced by Allah because it is similar to using divining arrows during the time of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) where the Arab pagans would do this to make decisions thinking it is divinely inspired by God. Here's another post similar to yours: What are "...

If you wanted to ignore any nuance and context regarding the verses of the Quran, you needn't have even gone this far to get a contradiction. Just take the first verse you mentioned: Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and [that] you have not besides Allah any protector or any helper? (2:107) If you wished to ...

I notice You are asking these types of questions frequently. There is nothing wrong uttering others name than Allah because of pain. Like if when you got hurt you call out "O mom" or something. there is nothing wrong with that. Side-Note: some of people would think who in the world say "o mom" when they get hurt. It depends on certain ...

Allah doesn't "get" anything. Allah has no needs. No one can benefit Allah in any way since He is perfect. The whole question is, thus, wrong. Allah doesn't do things because he "gets" some benefit or fulfills some need out of it. To try to understand why God did something is impossible except for what God tells us Himself. He told us He ...

It can be said that you see God in everything, feel him in everything. As your (human) eyes behold a beautiful sunset on a vast desert, that is Allah. When you hold a new-born baby in your arms and feel love towards it, and understanding of its vulnerability and your responsibility to protect and nurture it... that is Allah. As the first verse says, No ...

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The believer is not one who slanders, curses or utters foul or obscene speech.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi and classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. And in case of shayatin It was narrated from Abu’l-Maleeh that a man said: I was riding behind the Prophet (peace and blessings of ...

LAW THIYARAH (TATHAYYUR, CONSIDERING BAD FOR SOMETHING) [1] By Al-Ustadz Yazid bin Abdul Qodir Jawas Ahlus Sunnah does not believe in the Thiyarah or Tathayyur. Tathayyur or thiyarah is feeling bad luck because of something [2]. Taken from the sentence: زَجَرَ الطَّيْرَ (flying birds). Ibnul Qayyim (died 751 H) rahimahullah said: "In the past, they like to ...

As for as Isthighfar and tawba is concerned its a matter of heart in islam unlike christianity wherein you have to orally say it to a pastor to have your sin forgiven, in islam there is no such condition. When a person sins, he needs to gain back his consciousness, regret the sin he/she committed and seek forgiveness to Allah with a firm resolve to never go ...

First of all, do not harm yourself or think about killing yourself, Allah is the one who gives life and takes life. You felt bad the moment you 'thought' about it and you repented and even if you said it at loud,if you sincerely repent to Allah, Allah will still forgive you. Allah is The Most Merciful, The Entirely Merciful and it's the month of Ramadan, ...

You proceed from a corrupt standpoint, since you consider that God can have the characteristics of weakness, and this is wrong because God said about himself in the Quran: He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Fashioner. To Him belong the excellent Attributes. Gives glory to Him whatever is in the heavens and the earth. And He is the All-Mighty, the ...

Everything comes from Allah whether good or bad. The Satan has no power to do anything. Except perhaps, he may have some power when Allah allows, but even then, it is obvious Allah is the one who gives poverty and riches. All of it is a test from Allah as you already quoted: “And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a LOSS OF WEALTH ...

To seek Allah's pleasure, as Dua is also a form of worship. إن الدعاء هو العبادة ثم قرأ: وقال ربكم ادعوني أستجب لكم إن الذين يستكبرون عن عبادتي سيدخلون جهنم داخرين Supplication is worship. Then he recited: And Your Lord said: Call upon me, I will respond to you. Verily, those who scorn My worship, they will surely enter Hell humiliated. (40:60) — Jami at-...

Generally, pray Sunnah Rakat / Naafil (almost all) at home is the best place. Based on hadith from Zaid ibn Tsabit radhiyallahu'anhu, Rasulullah shallallaahu`alaihi wa sallam said, "The best prayer of a person is that performed in his home, with the exception of the obligatory prayer." [Bukhari 731, Muslim 1861] So, pray Naafil is better to do in your ...

Yes & No Actually Allah is such an existence that always existed. We everyone know that there is a gravity of earth which pulls every object which has mass. Gravity has existence. So it is abstract noun. Gravity is not sentient. But Allah is. You can't say the word Allah or God abstract noun. Allah is proper noun. Allah can't be seen. In the beginning, ...
