By Shaykh Hafiz Mahmut, Edited and modified by the Team[1]

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

We ask Allah to keep us away from knowledge that is not beneficial, and may increase us in (useful) knowledge that will be an adornment for us in this world and the next. Continue reading

(Please read the notice concerning our draft articles)

By a member of the Team

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

The following are some introductory notes I am taking in order to better understand an answer given by Shaykh Faraz Khan of the SeekersGuidance institute and its associated site, on the subject of Allah’s Relationship with Time and Space. I know this is a matter that may seem again to be recurring again and again in what I write, but we have to understand that non-Muslims are what they are due Continue reading

Objection: ‘So your God creates people to later send them to Hellfire?’

Answered by the Team, with changes and additions by Mawlana Zameelur Rahman

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

In the course of the various discussions Muslims have with non-Muslims, one of the questions presented before us goes something like this: “So let me get this straight. You Muslims say that your God creates people and their actions, and then He sends them to Hellfire? Do you know how silly that sounds?” Continue reading

On the statement: “But I am under too much stress to fast!”

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

I know it might be considered somewhat late to talk about the obligatory nature of fasting, given that we are now in the last week of Ramadhan, but I simply could not keep myself from writing something when I heard a certain person saying something along the lines that her job was too pressure-filled, the stress in her position too much, and that it would be unthinkable for her to keep fasts while maintaining the performance required in her position.

(Draft Article) Claim: “If God punishes people only for not worshipping Him, He can go ahead and punish me, I do not care”

(Please read the notice concerning our draft articles and works)

By Team

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

We have come across certain people who say that they want to have nothing to do with a Being who punishes people who refuse to worship Him. Since this is the case with Allah, who punishes those who refuse to worship Him properly after the message has been delivered to them, such people say that they want to have nothing to do with Islam or with “our God”.
