Guide to understanding Islam

By Admin

This book is a brief guide to understanding Islam. It consists

of three chapters.

The first chapter,Some Evidence for the Truth of Islam,” answers some important questions which some people ask:
-Is the Qur’an truly the literal word of God, revealed by Him?
– Is Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) truly a prophet sent by God?
– Is Islam truly a religion from God?

In this chapter, six kinds of evidence are mentioned:
1) The Scientific Miracles in the Holy Qur’an: This section discusses (with illustrations) some recently discovered scientific facts mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, which was revealed fourteen centuries ago.
2) The Great Challenge to Produce One Chapter Like the Chapters of the Holy Qur’an: In the Qur’an, God challenged all human beings to produce a single chapter like the chapters of the Qur’an. Ever since the Qur’an was revealed, fourteen centuries ago, until this day, no one has been able to meet this challenge, even though the smallest chapter in the Qur’an (Chapter 108) is only ten words.
3) Biblical Prophecies on the Advent of Muhammad , theProphet of Islam: In this section, some of the Biblical prophecieson the advent of the Prophet Muhammad  are discussed.
4) The Verses in the Qur’an That Mention Future Events Which Later Came to Pass: The Qur’an mentioned future events which later came to pass, for example, the victory ofthe Romans over the Persians.
5) Miracles Performed by the Prophet Muhammad: Many miracles were performed by the Prophet Muhammad. Thesemiracles were witnessed by many people.
6) The Simple Life of Muhammad (sas): This clearly indicates that Muhammad  was not a false prophet who claimed prophethood to attain material gains, greatness, or power.
From these six kinds of evidence, we conclude that:
-The Qur’an must be the literal word of God, revealed by Him.
-Muhammad  is truly a prophet sent by God.
-Islam is truly a religion from God.
If we would like to know if a religion is true or false,we should not depend on our emotions, feelings, or traditions. Rather, we should depend on our reason and intellect. When God sent the prophets, He supported them with miracles and evidence whichproved that they were truly prophets sent by God and hence thatthe religion they came with is true.

The second chapter, “Some Benefits of Islam”, mentions some of the benefits that Islam provides for the individual, such as:
1) The Door to Eternal Paradise
2) Salvation from Hellfire
3) Real Happiness and Inner Peace
4) Forgiveness for All Previous Sins.

The third chapter, “General Information on Islam”, provides general information on Islam, corrects some misconceptions about it, and answers some commonly asked questions, such as:
-What does Islam say about terrorism?
-What is the status of women in Islam?

One God, Its existence & False gods: A common sense analysis

By Admin

In simple words, god is something that is worshiped because people expect something in return from it. With this definition, everyone in this world has gods. Some have direct gods like idols, man-gods or heroes. Others have abstract gods like society, money, race, etc.

In this video, A.R.Green asks us to use common sense to realize the existence of God, and then examines other false-gods whether they are really worth worshiping or are they themselves dependent.

What you’re denying are false gods anyway

By Admin

Most of the times, people turn to atheism because the concept of God which is presented to them by their parents or society doesn’t make sense at all. Rejecting such a wrong concept is appreciated, but we must understand that what we’re denying were false gods anyway. The search for True God should not end there.

In this video, A.R.Green asks us to use common-sense to understand the existence of God and clears the difference between false gods and True God.

Who is our Lord?

By Admin

People have a lot of misconceptions and false notions when it comes to understanding what “God” really means. It is because of this that we find so many false gods around us. In this video, Dr. Bilal Philips raises a few questions which we can use to judge to what degree do we know who our Lord is.

  • Do you agree with those who say who say that belief is a matter of blind faith?
  • If everything has a Creator then who created God?
  • If God can do anything, why can’t He have a son?
  • If God is all-powerful, can He create a stone which is too heavy for Him to lift?
  • If God is all-good and He is able to do all things then where did evil come from?

Dr. Bilal Philips will address these questions and clear the many false ideas and misconceptions many people have when it comes to “Lord”.

Quran: A Miracle

By Admin

Quran is the primary source of Islam. It claims to be the verbatim word of God. But any book from God must reflect the signature of the creator who has accurate knowledge of science, history and creation. God cannot convey a message that is unscientific and inconsistent.

ScanIslam brings to you a few of many such miraculous verses from the Quran speaking about scientific facts established only lately.

 

Had this not been from God, these facts would have been impossible to describe 1400 years ago without the use of accurate equipments and modern technology.
