بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

One interesting argument I recently happened to read from the Atheist camp goes as follows in its logical structure:

Suppose that I am looking forward to a promotion in my job, but a moment comes when I suddenly find out that such a promotion will not occur, and I am disappointed at this shock. The atheist says that this feeling of  disappointment and the knowledge of how it feels to be suddenly disappointed is only known to me, not to a supposed God. Continue reading

Worshipping Allah: Thankfulness and Legalism

By MuslimAnswers.net Team (checked by Mufti Aadiel Moosagie, Council of Ulama Eastern Cape)

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

Certain atheists say something along the lines of: “Alright, suppose I accept that God exists and that He provides everything for us. But His giving us life, shelter, etc., does not necessitate our worshipping Him, or obeying Him. There is no connection between God giving us life and us being obliged to worship and obey God.” Continue reading
