65 Reasons to Believe Jesus Did Not Die on the Cross

1.   Why crucifixion?

Jews wanted him to be killed through crucifixion, so they can prove that  Jesus is not a beloved of God, rather the curse of God is on him. Jews could  have killed him easily as they were in hundreds of thousands in number and very  strong. If killing should have been their desire, they could have done it  easily. Just like they paid thirty pieces of silver to one of his disciples, if  they would have paid him more, he might have done this service too. But they  wanted him to be crucified so they can prove that he is not from God, rather he  is an imposter and a fabricator. If he was from God, then God will definitely  save him. May be that was the reason that Jesus was so reluctant to suffer on  the cross.

Wudhu (Ablution) Tutorial- Must Watch

The Best of forgivers, that is our Allaah

When Allaah pardons those who say His name just once with love, will He not surely pardon those lovers who remember Him night and day? Will He deprive those lovers of His Grace, His Paradise and His beauty? Far is it from Him!

Therefore, we are told, if a person flings another’s fault in his face, be it in public or in pr…ivate, the earth itself appeals to Allaah to let it deal with the one who exposes the other’s fault. “My Lord,” says the earth, “You are the Lord of All Worlds, yet You cover up the sins of Your servants, rather than flinging them in their faces. This man, himself a sinner, has disgraced a servant of Yours by exposing his offence. Pray permit me to swallow up this fellow, as I swallowed Qarun.”

If a person sees another’s sin, yet hides the fault he has seen and does not divulge it to others, Allaah will cover up seventy of that person’s sins and faults.

He is the Forgiver of sins and Veil-er of faults.

If Allah is most merciful, why does He like to see people burn in hell?

1526845_594589343923852_774864255_nIf Allah is most merciful, why did He create humans when He knew that majority of them will go to Hell-Fire? Why does Allah like to see people burn in Hell? If Allah is most merciful, why does He like to see people burn in hell?

Since we are already here on earth, there is no point in discussing this question, as nothing is …going to change. However, since by nature man is inquisitive, in sha Allaah, we will try to understand why He created the universe. Read the rest of this entry

Rights of women in Islaam

-_1_~1The subject of the rights of women in Islaam has often been clouded by controversy, personal opinions and sheer ignorance.

The issue of Women in Islaam has been the subject of all kinds of controversies,misunderstandings and especially misinformation. This work will discuss and explain this subject according to the precise teachings of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah (sayings, acts, i.e., the traditions) of Allah’s Messenger

The Qur’aan speaks of similarity in terms of creation. God tells us that He created a single soul and from it its mate, then He made countless men and women from those two (see Qur’aan 4:1). The Qur’aan does not contain the belief that the man alone is created in the image of God.

Because of this fundamental similarity between men and women, the Qur’aan declares that women have rights similar to the rights against them according to what is equitable (Qur’aan 2:228). Read the rest of this entry

Gratitude

Belief has to be real. Our faith is tested in action with others at all levels. Purity facilitates the working of love. And knowledge is gained over the passage of nights and days.”
