An Interesting Conversation

An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty.

He asks one of his new Muslim students to stand and.....
Professor : You are a Muslim, aren't you?

Student : Yes, sir. Prof : So you believe in God?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Prof : Is God good?

Student : Sure.

Prof : Is God all-powerful?

Student : Yes.

Prof : My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is this God good then? Hmm? (Student is silent.)

Prof : You can't answer, can you? Let's start a gain, young fella. Is God good?
Student :Yes.

Prof : Is Satan good?

Student : No.

Prof : Where does Satan come from?

Student : From...God...

Prof : That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Student : Yes.

Prof : Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?

Student : Yes.

Prof : So who created evil? (Student does not answer.)

Prof : Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?

Student :Yes, sir.
Prof: So, who created them? (Student has no answer.)

Prof : Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son...Have you ever seen God?

Student : No, sir. Prof : Tell us if you have ever heard your God?

Student : No , sir. Prof : Have you ever felt y our God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?

Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.

Prof : Yet you still believe in Him?

Student : Yes.

Prof : According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?

Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.

Prof : Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

Prof : Yes.

Student : And is there such a thing as cold?

Prof : Yes.

Student : No sir. There isn't. (The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)

Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it. (There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)

Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Prof : Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?

Student : You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light....But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?

Prof : So what is the point you are making, young man?

Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Prof : Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Prof : If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir? (The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)

Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavour, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher? (The class is in uproar.)

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain? (The class breaks out into laughter.)

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it?.....No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir? (The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Prof : I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.

Student : That is it sir.. The link between man & God is FAITH.
That is all that keeps things moving & alive.!!

What is Islam 3?(women rights)

In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most

Islam honored women in many ways and got for them rights that
were deprived from them in the era of Jahelya. This article with the will of
Allah will discuss the rights of women in Islam, and clear any misunderstanding
about women’s rights in Islam.

1. They say that women are dishonored in Islam and/or considered
as a second level human being .And in the Holy Quran (the words of Allah) it
is said :-

So their Lord accepted
of them (their supplication and answered them), “Never will I allow to
be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female

[Sura Aal ‘Imraan (Chapter 3), Aya(verse) 195]

Whoever works righteousness — whether male
or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism)
verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment
and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion
to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)

[Sura Al-Nahl (Chapter 16), Aya (verse) 97]

And whoever does righteous good deeds, male or
female, and is a (true) believer [in the Oneness of Allaah (Muslim)], such will
enter Paradise and not the least injustice, even to the size of a Naqeera (speck
on the back of a date stone), will be done to them

[Sura Al-Nisa (chapter 4),Aya(verse)124]

2. They say they disgrace girls in Islam

In the Hadith, Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) says “Any
Believer who takes care and raises three girls, these girls will protect him
from hell on judgment day.

3. They say in Islam, women take half what men take in Inheritance
because she is a second-level human being

Well not in all situations women take half what men take. And
in Islam, it is the man who is responsible to support his family not the woman.
So what she takes simply she keeps it for herself and no one else

4. They say in Islam, a woman has no right to choose her future
A woman cannot marry anyone with out a guardian,
but she has to agree on who she will marry.

5. They say a woman as a wife has no rights over her husband.

The women in Islam are asked to obey their husbands in what
follows with Islam teachings only but they have rights over their husbands as
much their husbands have rights over them. In the Holy Quran Allah says :-

And they (women) have rights (over their husbands as regards
living expenses) similar (to those of their husbands) over them (as regards
obedience and respect) to what is reasonable

[Sura Al-Baqarah (Chapter 2), Aya (verse)228]

6. They say in Islam wives are considered as maids for their
husbands. They must do what ever they are told even if they can’t

In Islam, a wife must save her husband dignity and honor. She
also must raise her kids to be good men and women. But it is not her responsibility
to clean the house and cook for her family. She does all that by her will and
all the family members must participate in these duties or hire someone for
such duties. In the Hadith :-

Ayesha(one of the prophet(peace be upon him)) wives was once
asked “ What does the the prophet of Allah (peace be upon him)
do in his home?”. She answered “The prophet (peace be upon him)
used to sew his cloth, fix his shoes and does what all men do in their homes

7. And other rights given to women in Islam:-

She keeps her own name after marriage.

She has her own estate and she can do whatever she wants with
her earnings and belongings. Her husband can not take anything from his wife
unless she willingly gives him.

And as a mother she is greatly honored in Islam. In the Holy
Quran it is said:-

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And
that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old
age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but
address them in terms of honor.(23) And lower unto them the wing of submission
and humility through mercy, and say: ‘My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy
as they did bring me up when I was young (24)

[Sura Al-Esraa (Chapter 17) Ayaat (verses) 23-24]

And We have enjoined on man (to be dutiful and
good) to his parents. His mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness
and hardship, and his weaning is in two years – give thanks to Me and
to your parents, - unto Me is the final destination. But if they (both) strive
with you to make you join in worship with Me others of which you have no knowledge,
then obey them not, but behave with them in the world kindly…

[Sura Luqmaan (Chapter31), Ayaat(verses)14-15]

And in the Hadith :-

Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) said: - “Heaven
lies under mother’s feet

A person once came to the Prophet (peace be upon
him) and asked him “From all people who best deserves my company”.
The prophet answered “Your mother”. He asked again “Then who?”
The prophet answered “your mother”. He asked again “Then who?”
The prophet answered “your mother”. He asked again “Then who?”
The prophet answered “your father
”. ”

What's ISLAM 1?

In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful. All praise is to Allah and peace and blessings are upon his Messenger.

I’ll begin writing after ALLAH’s willing this series what’s ISLAM? For people who do not know what the ISLAM means, I read a lot of articles after what Denmark did about ISLAM, but should we stop talking about our religion should we stop introducing all over the world about our religion as we see some people do a lot of aggressive crimes by the name of ISLAM, the answer is absolutely NO.

We all Muslims repeat it again and again our religion does not motivate to violence. USAMA BN LADEN, Ayman El- Zawahry, EL-Zrkawy and so on not an image of ISLAM, ISLAM does not motivate to any kinds of violence and I as a Muslim apologize to everyone whatever his religion is has lose a friend, a father, a mother or a person s/he loves by those people.

NO MUSLIM on the EARTH can say, we allowed killing any person his/her religion not ISLAM.

NO MUSLIM on the EARTH can say, we allowed to steal your (not Muslims) money and your (not Muslims) money lawful or legitimate to us.

If someone Muslim lives in USA and he is from IRAQ, our religion prevents him/her to make any kind of violence in USA and also if USA citizen lives in IRAQ and this person not a soldier, killing him/her is a SIN, no one can not touch him/her yes I mean it NO ONE CAN TOUCH HIM/HER, nothing called that’s our right. If we want fighting we fight who carries weapon.

ISLAM urges ethics, respecting each other, fine treatment, living in peace, decreasing wars as much as possible.

ISLAM does not urge sin, pornographic things, killing, wars and so on.

ISLAM urges the loyalty to your country.

ISLAM does not urge to loud the volume of your cassette while playing a Quran record. Really what a beautiful religion urges to ethics.

ISLAM does not urge to walk in street at night and loud your sound saying let’s pray. Our religion respects the co-existence between all over the world.

ISLAM does not urge killing or insulting the leader or the president of your country

In ISLAM if Muslim leaves the ISLAM and go to another religion (S/he must be killed that’s ALLAH JUDGMENT (No one can argue in that) but not any one can apply this judgment who applies it should be charged with that by THE PRESIDENT of the country, THE LEADER of the country, THE MUFTI, etc
ISLAM is very very organized. Not as you see in a lot of places where a aggressive crimes done by the name of ISLAM

To make it more clear what happen in Palestine it’s the right punishment to Israelis who extorts our land. And what happen there it’s Palestinians rights but again NO Palestinian has the right to kill anybody outside PALESTINE. And no Palestinian has the right to kill Hungarian citizen, German citizen or else lives in Palestine.

Please do not judge on ISLAM by talking some people like USAMA BN LADEN, Ayman El-Zawahry, EL-Zrkawy or EL QA’DA formation as an Image of ISLAM
