The Qur'an (or the hadith, for that matter) is not a science textbook. It is a book of (spiritual) guidance and revelation from our Creator. It touches on matters of creation, and the remarkable thing about that is that it uses language and descriptions that fit perfectly with modern understandings of those things. However, it doesn't necessarily offer ...

Let me answer this from the position of an atheist, and scientific rationalist that I am. Can a Muslim prove to an atheist or an infidel that God actually exists? No, Muslim cannot "prove" to an atheist that the God exists. The reasons are the following: The atheist would require the scientific proof, which does not exist The Islam is entirely based on ...

I think this is just a matter of you throwing yourself into confusion with non-sequitirs (ie, fallacious connections). The false connection is in this statement you made: "So when we compare the ayaths we can see that all the three verses (mentioned above) starts by referring the seven heavens and then says about the stars created which are referred as ...

I survey scientific meta reviews below. Pornography was associated with: more sexual partners, increased condom use, lower interpersonal relationship satisfaction, addiction, male adolescent sexual offenses, sexual aggression (both perpetration and victimization), more permissive sexual attitudes, stronger gender-stereotypical sexual beliefs, reduced ...

You are equating Scientific and Quranic terminology which is wrong. At the time and place of the revelation of the Quran: the planets, the plasma balls they revolve around, comets, moons, meteorites and stellar flares would all be categorized under "stars" and anything that was illuminated could be poetically be called a lamp, regardless of whether the ...

There is proportionality throughout the universe. and we even came to know that gravitational waves exist. so if our star (sun) were to disappear one day it would disrupt the design and we wont exist (because gravity). in such a case how could stars be thrown at the devils? Are you saying that the verse means that the sun is actually thrown at the ...

Aleykum Selam, My Arabic is not good but I believe your mistake is one of translation or misinterpretation of these ayas as a sequence of events one after the other. "Then He directed Himself to the heaven" The English translation that you are using says "then" implying that first earth was created "then" the next step was the heavens. Yusuf Ali's ...

This is the problematic part in bold: Anas b. Malik reported that Umm Sulaim narrated it that she asked the Messenger of Allah about a woman who sees in a dream what a man sees (sexual dream). The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: In case a woman sees that, she must take a bath. Umm Sulaim said: I was bashful on account of that and said: ...

Yes, Muslims believe that Islam is the perfect religion. Allah swt said in the Qur'an, that He perfected the religion. Of course, the Qur'an is perfect as it is the word of Allah, the All-Knowing Creator. Here, I refer to the Shia school of thought: Yes, the actions of the Prophet were perfect and everything he said as well, as he acted and spoke by the ...

I can break this down pretty simply: When we refer to scientifically proven evidence, what we're actually talking about is collectively verified observation. E.g. if I make an observation about the acceleration of gravity at sea level, you can verify this observation if you have similar means. Collectively verified knowledge is considered a superior form ...

Some evidence may suggest that it is to avoid unnecessary arousal, there is some medical evidence that one can get addicted to arousal and it affects the brain in a negative way in the long term. (allahu alim) So if this is bad: The Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: "O Ali, do not follow a glance with another, for ...

Since this is a science question, an impartial scientist would also have to consider possibilities which directly violate Islamic beliefs, e.g., the "moon split in two" hypothesis is false. Putting aside my religious beliefs momentarily... The splitting of the moon in two cannot be explained physically. An actual splitting the moon in two through natural ...

I think it may also be because animals such as cattle, sheep, goats, buffalo, deer and camels, etc are ruminant animals; meaning they have 4 stomachs... Whereas pigs aren't and only have one stomach. Therefore ruminant animals digest their food over a 24hr period and during the digestive process, they get rid of excess toxins as well as other components of ...

I will give you a direct answer based on Atheist belief, you said: atheists will argue that since they can't hear, see or feel God then He doesn't exist. None of us have ever seen, nor heard, nor felt, nor smelled, nor tasted our grand, grand, grand, grand parents, yet we believe that they did exist. Based on the "Atheist" argument, none of us should ...
