First of all, it has been some time since I personally wrote any new work on this site. There may still be some time before I get back to writing new articles, but I might add on to some of the existing works from time to time. Continue reading

(Please read the notice concerning our draft articles)

By a member of the MuslimAnswers.net 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

(Draft Article) Question: “What about Muslims using science to manufacture medicines and the like?”

(Please read the notice concerning our draft articles)

By a member of the MuslimAnswers.net Team

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

A certain person asked me, after reading the article “(Draft Article) “Shouldn’t Muslims advance in Modern Science?””, that first of all, the point I was trying to make was not very clear, and secondly, about the consideration of a simple thing related to science, such as a Muslim country establishing industries that can manufacture its own medicines, and the like.

Introductory notes on the book ‘The Sources of the Quran’

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

These are some notes I am taking on the book “The Sources of the Qur’an: A Critical Review of the Authorship Theories” written by Hamza Njozi. In fact, this is not a work by a scholar of Islam, but rather the result of research by a lay Muslim. However, I think there are some good points being made in this work, so I thought it was appropriate to mention them and then leave open the path for further, more scholarly and traditionally-based research, for the future. There is also what may be called some weak points in this book I will point these out as well whenever necessary. Continue reading

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

Answered by the MuslimAnswers.net 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

When “democracy” is used as a basis for everything

 بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

A while back I was discussing with an agnostic concerning the subject of Islam, and I said that Islam was the only religion that consistently says that the human being is ontologically distinct from Creator. One way or the other, he understood that this was unlike what one has in Christianity (where it is proclaimed that Jesus Christ is a “unitary point” between humans and God) or in Hinduism (where there is a unity of all existence in an underlying Divinity.)

(Draft Article) Objection: Verse 86:11 is not about the capacity of the heavens to return back rain

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

By MuslimAnswers.net Team

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيم

Statement: Dr. Naik says verse: 86:11 talks “specifically about the capacity of heavens to return back rain” i.e. the stage of evaporation. This is clearly not so. This verse is about the return of the firmament (sun, moon, stars) that happens every 24 hours[1].

Answer: Continue reading
