In the Name of Allah---the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. Sahifah al-Sadiqah: The First Book of Hadith by Sajid Mahmood Ansari During the early stages of the revelation of the Qur'an, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) took measures to ensure that his words, known as hadith, were not recorded alongside the Qur'an. This decision was made to prevent any potential confusion between the divine scripture, the Qur'an, and the sayings or actions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The primary reason for this distinction was to safeguard the Qur'an's unique status as the direct word of God, as Muslims believe it was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the angel Gabriel. The Qur'an is considered the ultimate and unalterable source of guidance for Muslims, containing the teachings, principles, and laws that form the foundation of the Islamic faith and practice. Narrated by Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri that the Messenger of All
In the Name of Allah---the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. Ashab al-Kahf: The Seven Sleeping Saints Author: Sajid Mahmood Ansari The Holy Qur’an, in 18 th Surah Al-Kahf, narrates the story of a few young believers, who fled from a tyrant polytheist king, hid inside a cave, and kept sleeping there for a number of years. After sleeping for centuries, they woke up and came to know that they slept for three centuries. Qur’anic Narrative: The Holy Qur’an narrates the story as follows: “ Don’t you think that the people of the Cave and the Raqeem were one of Our wondrous signs? When those youths sought refuge in the Cave and said: "Our Lord! Grant us mercy from Yourself and provide for us rectitude in our affairs." We lulled them to sleep in that cave for a number of years and then roused them so that We might see which of the two parties could best tell the length of their stay. We narrate to you their true story. They were a party of young men who had faith in
Human Family Tree From Adam (peace be upon him) to present Author: Sajid Mahmood Ansari Creation of Man Contrary to Darwinism, Islam believes that the first human couple was created especially by the Lord of the Worlds--Allah Almighty in the heavenly Paradise and sent down to the earth thousands of years ago. Scientifically speaking, it was the first couple of Homo sapiens , perfect in all human characteristics, including speaking and walking erectly. Adam (peace be upon him) and his wife Hawa (Eve) constituted the first human couple. They were the Prime ancestors of all the human beings, living today, the deceased and the going to be begotten in future. Allah Almighty said: (Remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Truly, I am going to create man from clay". So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him (his) soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him." So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them.  This narrative has been de
In the Name of Allah---the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. The Islamic Schools of Law What is an Islamic School of Law? The Islamic school of law, also known as Madhhab , is a term used to refer to the different legal schools of thought within Islamic jurisprudence. These schools of law emerged from the early Islamic period and developed over time as scholars interpreted and applied Islamic sources such as the Quran, Hadith (sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h), and consensus of the community ( ijma ) to practical legal issues. There are four main Sunni schools of law: Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi'i, and Hanbali. Each school has its own methodology, principles, and interpretations of Islamic legal sources, and there are differences in their rulings on certain issues. Additionally, there are also several Shia schools of law, such as Ja'fari and Zaidi, which have their own unique perspectives and interpretations of Islamic law. Despite these differences
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Predicted the Laws of Genetics Author: Sajid Mahmood Ansari Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) predicted the Laws of Genetics. This statement is supported by a number of reports transmitted from the Prophet (PBUH). Abdullah bin Abbas (A.S) reported that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Discharge of man and woman fuse together, when man’s discharge (sperm) dominates the woman’s discharge (ovum), the baby is a boy; and when woman’s discharge dominates the man’s discharge the baby is a girl.” [Musnad Ahmad: H#2483] There is another report that gives more details of genetics. Anas bin Malik (R.A) reported that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Man's discharge (sperm) is thick and white and the discharge of woman (ovum) is thin and yellow; so the resemblance comes from the one whose discharge prevails or dominates.” [Musnad Ahmad: H#12247, Sahih Muslim:H#311] Ayesha (R.A) reported that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “When woman’s discharge (ovum) domin

In the Name of Allah---the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Abū-ʿAlī al-Ḥusayn ibn-ʿAbdallāh Ibn-Sīnā [Avicenna] (ca. 970–1037) was the preeminent philosopher and physician of the Islamic world. In his work, he combined the disparate strands of philosophical/scientific thinking in Greek late antiquity and early Islam into a rationally rigorous and self-consistent scientific system that encompassed and explained all reality, including the tenets of revealed religion and its theological and mystical elaborations. In its integral and comprehensive articulation of science and philosophy, it represents the culmination of the Hellenic tradition, defunct in Greek after the sixth century, and reborn in Arabic in the 9th (Gutas 2004a, 2010). It dominated intellectual life in the Islamic world for centuries to come, and the sundry reactions to it, ranging from acceptance to revision to refutation and to substitution with para-philosophical constructs, determined developments in philosophy, science, religion, theology, and mysticism. In Latin translation, beginning with the 12th century, Avicenna’s philosophy influenced mightily the medieval and Renaissance philosophers and scholars, just as the Latin translation of his medical Canon (GMed 1), often revised, formed the basis of medical instruction in European universities until the 17th century.
Did Ibn Sina Deny Creation?
Some Muslim scholars objected Ibni Sina that he did not believe in creation, rather he supported the eternal universe. Actually, this is not true. Ibni Sina believed in Almighty Allah, His Last Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him), and His Holy Book Quran. His works prove this.
Ibni Sina argued for the Wajib al-Wujud (Necessary Being) in his works. Ibn Sina's argument regarding wajib al-wujud (the necessary existence) is one of the central themes of his philosophical system. According to Ibn Sina, the necessary existence is a being that exists in all possible worlds and whose existence is self-evident and necessary. This being is God, who is the cause of all other beings and is the ultimate explanation of the existence and order of the universe.
