There are several Quranic verses to the effect that all things, living and non-living, worship Allah through prostration and glorification. Quran 22:18 Do you not see that to Allah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth and the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, the moving creatures and many of the people? ...

There are several aspects that play into account when it comes to "troubles," as you call it in your question. First, the issue of qadar (pre-destination). In the famous Hadith Jibreel, the Messenger of Allah said (excerpt): It is that you believe in Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers and in the Last Day, and in fate (qadar), both in ...

You ask an interesting and deep question -- one that has implications in qadar itself. Let's start with the basics. From a long hadith in Imam Nawawi's famous collection of 40 (emphasis mine): Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother’s womb for forty days in the form of a nutfah (a drop), then he becomes an alaqah (...

The assumption that the Prophet(pbuh) never fell sick is incorrect. See Sahih Bukhari Book #11, Hadith #646 Narrated Abu Musa: "The Prophet became sick and when his disease became aggravated..." BUT I would agree with your teacher that it is recommended to eat less to be healthy. Why the Prophet(pbuh) never went to the doctor? There are certain ...

It seems that the answer has been stated explicitly in the following verse: (67:2) الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْمَوْتَ وَالْحَيَاةَ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْغَفُورُ [He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed - and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving -

Ever heard of the Prophetic Medicine? There are many advices from the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wassalam) to cure some ailments. These are recorded in Authentic Hadeeths. The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wassalam) also said : Sunan Abu Dawud Book 22, Number 3846: Narrated Usamah ibn Sharik: I came to the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wassalam) and his ...

According to the Sunni view (I am not aware of the Shia view), Imam Mahdi will come in a time of great distress. He will lead the Muslims until the appearance of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) who will lead an army of Muslims to kill the dajjal (anti-Christ). Jesus will then rule over the Muslims until he dies of a natural death. Several major signs of the ...

Allah ordered Muslims to work and earn a living to gain their provisions. A man has the right to work in all fields including agriculture, industry, trade, medicine, or teaching, to obtain his provisions and gain lawful property. No one has the right to prevent him from doing so. There is no problem with your job unless you gain halal income. And also you ...

If you mean there are preferred professions yes there are, but why do you think being a lawyer is a secular profession? You are true only if you are living in a country with secular politic but where I live, Iran, our laws are obtained from Islam so a lawyer is one who defend the Islamic rights of people. Yes, every lawyer can abuse the shortcomings in ...

There are a lot of places in the Quran that talk about the purpose of life. Here are two:- قُلْنَا اهْبِطُوا مِنْهَا جَمِيعًا ۖ فَإِمَّا يَأْتِيَنَّكُم مِّنِّي هُدًى فَمَن تَبِعَ هُدَايَ فَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ - 2:38 We said, "Go down from it, all of you. And when guidance comes to you from Me, whoever follows My guidance - ...

Islam generally discourages unfounded suspicion: O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. ... Qur'an 49:12 (See also: Sahih al-Bukhari 6064) You're mostly going to have to use your own judgement as to whether your friend is trustworthy and is making well-founded ...

It's a well known fact in Islam that faith (iman) fluctuates up and down, which is natural. Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, "Faith wears out in your heart as clothes wear out, so ask Allah to renew the faith in your hearts" (Mustadrak). So we go through highs and lows. If a Muslim is going through a period of 'low faith' then he should make the dua as suggested ...

As‘salaamu alaikum, brother! You have absolutely no reason to feel guilty about your motivation for doing good deeds. Yearning for the Jannah is a legitimate motive according to the teachings of the Qur‘an.... “Say: ‘Is that (the agony of Hellfire) best, or the Gardens of Eternity, promised to the righteous?‘ For them that is a reward AS WELL AS A GOAL. ...

Well you need to realize that jannah is the symbol or indication for salvation and Allah's acceptance for your deeds . Keeping that in mind if you ask for jannah with this context it'd totally fine . And even Allah has said that the servants should pray for heaven .

Our purpose is not weakened because Allah does not need us. It is still our purpose to worship Allah and do good. What Allah needs is not relevant. As to your question about why Allah created us with that purpose: Allah knows best. You don't really need to and it is probably impossible to know Allah's reasons.

وعليكم السلام (Wa Alaikum As Salam) You're overlooking a few things. One thing you have overlooked is that people have varying levels of faith. To hold everyone to the same tests when one group has lower levels of faith and the other has higher levels would be "unfair". -- To put it into perspective, it is like saying Allah (ﷻ) should put you through the ...

In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful What a nice matter you mentioned, I indeed appreciate for mentioning that significant important point as you remarked: what goes around comes around? I have heard that as well, and strongly believe in that matter too. But the significant related point is that (perhaps) the effect of some or ...

This is OK. And this is what many men practice in everyday life with brothers, friends and others. It is good to love, be it the same sex or the opposite. You are encouraged to develop love for all humans and be merciful. In Syria, Lebanon and surroundings you will see men walking hand in hand, which Europeans look at with suspicion because they consider ...

Which of these molecule clusters was the first living organism is ...

You've asked some very fundamental questions and I would try and answer in brief, hoping that that wouldn't be the end of your quest for the meaning of life. Nature of human You probably meant "nature of man" here. In the Qur'an, man is described as the 'noblest' of God's creation. Man can ascend to the heights of the angels, and he can descend below the ...

I would like to just add to what ashes999 said. Allah does not forget us even though we may forget Him, He assures us below that relief will come... "Verily, with every difficulty there is relief." [Quran 94:6] Also, when a person is continuously in trouble (like the example above)... it may also mean one more thing based on the quran. "Whatever good,...

Let me ask you a question here.... Is there any action we can do better than the prophet(pbuh)? The reason I ask this because .....when prophet(pbuh) passed away, there was no oil in the lamp ...and...he lived only 62 years... This simply implies that money and life span is with the will of Allah. Indeed, your Lord extends provision for whom He wills ...
