Two quick points in answer to your question: The entire phrase "god worthy of worship" is an awkward translation of the single Arabic word "ilah." That's because there isn't an easy English cognate. Suppose you had a statement: "There is no car in the parking lot" but instead of it being framed that way it said instead "There is no 4-wheeled vehicle capable ...

God does not depends on Satan to test human. We all are equipped with rebellious nafs (ego, lower self). Satan, like many of us, slipped but unlike many of us, he refused to seek forgiveness, instead asked for respite and challenged God to mislead His creation. God gave him respite (now.. why? to test human? not necessarily) and said anyone who seek ...

Allah has only created one religion and only one. ان الدین عند الله الاسلام We have the same God, we are the same humans, we have the same wisdom which tells us love is good, jealousy is bad, arrogance is bad, sacrifice is good. What you see as changes are only small tiny changes in commandments + deviations of previous religions. The verses presented in ...

Yes, it is possible for Allah to remove your past as if it has never happened. That's because He says in the Qur'an (Q24:45): "... Allah creates what He wills. Verily! Allah is Able to do all things." I believe the more appropriate question to ask is: would He do that? As you know, it's not all our prayers that get answered. One of the possible reasons is ...

Have a look at the verse again. It specifically states "the evil of that which He created." This essentially means that the evil comes from the creation and not from Allah. Think of it this way, using an analogy: A car manufacturer manufactures cars, not accidents; which means that a car manufacturer does his utmost to produce a safe and sound car. ...

The post is one mathematical misunderstanding after another. If you're allowed to do whatever you want with numbers, you can prove and/or disprove whatever you want. Here's a few blatant errors: Our numerical system has potentially a never ending amount of numbers. should say "there are infinitely many natural numbers". ... only one number does ...

There are two distinct words “nafs” and “rooh”, which are both translated as “soul” in English. The word rooh is the same as the English word for soul. Nafs, however, is slightly different. The word nafs is defined as “a feature of the soul. This feature continuously directs people to committing sin.”★ The desire to commit evil acts, such as lying and ...

According to some sunni sources Ibadi are among the Khawarij sect. Ibadi themselves disagree but apparently from their books they at least approve the taughts of the Kharijite sect (Khawarij). They seem to follow a student of 'Abdullah ibn 'Abas (May Allah be pleased with them) who's called Jabir ibn Zayd جابر بن زيد in Fiqh matters. But some scholars don't ...

Allah has power over all the things. He can change the past also. But at the same time He is not unjust to anybody. Once you have done something wrong its done. On the basis of that you will be judged. So ask for forgiveness. He is the most merciful. If He changes your past, what about others related to your past? He can fix that also. But He says He is ...

First of all, whatever happens, happens with WILL of Allah. If something has happened, then its surely for your betterment. You just have to put your trust in Allah, and don't try to Change what has happened, instead, try to see the wisdom behind that happening that why it happened. Even if you might not find a clue that what was beter in it, still you have ...

The signs and evidence that god exists are numerous therefore we already know that god exists, these sort of questions may come into any persons mind there are a lot of things that our human mind could not comprehend, my advice would be is this there are questions that we may not have answers to in this life, making assumptions will lead us nowhere as there ...

First of all, there isn't just 3 religions ( based on God's worship ). There are many others, too. But, the important thing is that the message sent from God was just 1 thing. ( Which is named 'Islam' in the Quran. ) This 'Islam' is not necessarily the religion which we call 'Islam' today. But we're trying to make it better, to make it closer to the ...

Bismillah! 2 notes, I maybe wrong though. If someone asks you do you exist or not? Do you need any sort of explanation? No! You know you do exist...if I speak to you for 3 days and nights that you don't exist... you still won't doubt your existence... Yet in the same way we don't truly know about how we exist...how we were created exactly...somethings we ...

There are two major claims about the religion history: Atheistic view Islam's view Atheistic View It says that the humans were afraid of natural events such as lightning and storm. Also they were thankful for other natural things such as fruit giving trees. So, with the improvement of the brain and abstract thinking, they started to give abstract meanings ...

I should point out that there is likely to be a confusion based on the usage of the word "Satan" for anyone not already familiar with the Islamic doctrine. "Satan" refers to two overlapping groups. As the question uses "he" and "him," I assume that the assumption is that the word "Satan" always refers to the same being across the Torah, Bible, and Qur'an. ...

Satan is a Jinn (A type of creation like Human beings and angels) hence it is as insignificant as any other Human being in the eyes of Allah. There are human beings on this earth which are more powerful then others and have money, influence and power yet they can be either be believers(Mumineen) in Islam or disbelievers similar is the case of Satan(Iblis) ...

Battle of Karbala's answer is great. There is an important difference he forgot to mention: Jaber asked Imam Sadiq: Why don't you claim what belongs to you? (Why don't you take control of the Ummah, you're the rightful leaders?) Imam Sadiq replied: یا جابِر مَثَلُ الإِمامِ مَثَلُ الْکَعْبَةِ اِذْ یُؤتی وَلایَأْتی Oh Jabir the position of the Imam (...

Imam is the custodian of Prophet, he may be regarded as representative of Prophet. In the absence/ any controversy, he has to explain true Islamic Jurisdiction, because he has got knowledge of Prophet, he has the knowledge, gifted by Prophet, whereas, Prophet has be bestowed all, including knowledge by Almighty Allah. Allah has comprehensive programme for ...

I've had these thoughts many times over and this is what I have so far as I remember. Allaah being All-Knowing is an attribute that's suitable because of being the Creator of the universe, supreme deity. If Allaah wasn't All-Knowing, he wouldn't be God. All-Knowing disqualifies the creation of having likeness. Only Allaah knows everything. No human or ...

Miracle is defined as: A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws. Such an event may be attributed to a supernatural being (a deity), magic, a miracle worker, a saint or a religious leader. Science hasn't discovered what was of the universe before the big bang so it can be called a miracle from that point of view.
