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
In the Name of Allah---the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. Here is a brief introduction to the most authentic Hadith book, titled Sahih al-Bukhari. The era in which Imam Muhammad bin Ismail al-Bukhari, may God bless him and grant him peace, opened his eyes was a period full of temptations for the Muslim Ummah. Some groups fascinated by Greek thought and philosophy were busy attacking certain Muslim beliefs and ideas of Islam. On the other hand, the enemies of Islam were engaged in fabricating narrations from their masters to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) due to the high status of the tradition of interpretation of the Qur'an (Ilm-e-Hadith) in the Muslim Ummah. The traditions passed down were related to the beliefs, principles and branches of religion. This is the period when the above-mentioned groups either completely denied the authenticity of hadith by using the hadith as an argument, or deviated from recognizing the authority of the strong and reliable traditions of the Ummah
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.

What is anthropomorphism?
Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human characteristics, emotions, and behaviors to Almighty Allah. In Islam, anthropomorphism is considered a major sin, as it goes against the Islamic principle of Tawhid, which is the belief in the oneness of God and that He is incomparable and cannot be limited by human attributes or physical form. The Quran repeatedly states that God is not like any of His creation and that He is beyond human comprehension.
The Islamic tradition emphasizes that God should be worshipped only in the manner that He has commanded, and any form of idol worship or anthropomorphism is strictly prohibited. The worship of anything other than God, including the attribution of human qualities to God, is considered shirk, which is considered the greatest sin in Islam.
