Macrocosm and microcosm show the unity

Everything has a maker. Every action has a doer. Every word has a writer. Every city has a governor. So, this great universe has a maker, too. Someone has created it. Someone manages and maintains it. Tawhid is to declare that there is only one god who is the creator and sustainer of everything. Tawhid has been the message of 124,000 prophets sent to humanity. From Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), including Prophet Isa and Moses, every single prophet has…

Role of Science in Belief

One of my articles in which I expressed my ideas on the psychological defence of atheists in the face of temporary nature of the life has offended some people who do not believe (http://www.thepenmagazine.net/the-unbelief-a-life-based-on-demagogy/). When I reread my article I realized that the language and style that I employed were really offensive to those who do not believe. Plus, it was very self-assured and in a manner that has solved all problems that we, human beings, have faced up. To me, the number one rule for a human being is…

Our Prophet (PBUH) defined the belief in destiny as “to believe in destiny, and that the source of good and evil is Allah (SWT)”. For this reason, when reciting Amantu that sequences the pillars of belief, we say “I believe in…

How can We Understand Allah has no Begining and no End?

How can the human being conceive Allah’s being Eternal and having no beginning and no end? Created ones are born convicted to the time; they live and die with a confinement on time. Allah (swt) does not resemble to His creations. Time is also a law or a being created by Allah. Allah cannot be prisoner of His own laws.
