Mathematician Who Challenged Qur’an

Dr Gary Miller (Now Dr Abdul Ahad) was a very active missionary and was very knowledgeable about the Bible. This man likes mathematics so much, that’s why he likes logic. One day, he decided to read the Qur’an to try to find any mistakes that he might take advantage of while inviting Muslims to convert to Christianity. He expected the Qur’an to be an old book written 14 centuries ago, a book that talks about the desert and so on. He was amazed from what he found. He discovered that this Book had what no other book in the world has. He expected to find some stories about the hard time

I Was Forced to Accept Islam

By Danielle LoDuca I never aspired to be a Muslim. I didn’t even want to be a Christian. The whole concept of ‘organized religion’ was distasteful. I sought to use my mind, not resort to some ancient book for assistance in living my life. If you had offered me millions of dollars to join one faith or another, I would have declined. One of my preferred authors was Bertrand Russell, who maintained that religion is little more than superstition and generally harmful to people, despite any positive effects that it might have.

In the year 2119, in just 100 years from now, every single reader of this piece will be underground, our bodies having become part of the soil. During that time, our fate with respect to paradise or hell would have been made known to us. Meanwhile above the soil, our houses that were left behind would have become homes for others, our clothes would have become garments for others, our cars will be driven by others, and as for us, we will be – for the most part – never thought about by anyone again. How often do you think about your great grandfather? How often does your great grandmother

The ‘Upgrade’ of the Aakhirah

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has mentioned, “When Allah Ta‘ala has decreed a particular rank (in Jannah) for a servant, but the servant is unable to reach this rank through his good deeds (as they are insufficient), then Allah Ta‘ala tests him in his body, wealth, or his children. Allah Ta‘ala then enables him to exercise patience over this test, until it makes him reach the rank that Allah Ta‘ala had decreed for him.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #3090) Every person hopes for an upgrade – be it an upgrade to the latest cell phone model, an upgrade from economy to business or first class, an upgrade to the latest car model,
