Fundamentals of Tawheed

By Admin

Tawheed, or Oneness of God, is the core of Islamic faith. It is common knowledge that is the pillar of Islam that is most precisely expressed in the formula “La Ilaha Illallah” (There is no god but Allah) which states that there is only one true God and he alone deserves to be worshiped. This seemingly simple formula forms the dividing line between Eeman (true belief in God) and Kufr (disbelief) according to the tenents of Islam. Because of this belief the Islamic concept of God is considered to be unitarian and Islam is counted among world’s monotheistic religions along with Judaism and Christianity. Yet according to the Islamic unitarian concept Christianity is classified as polytheism and Judaism is considered a subtle form of idolatry. Thus the principle of tawhid is profound and needs clarification even among Muslims.

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?

Islamic Economics & Commerce

By Admin

Ever wondered why your money buys less day by day? Is someone stealing your money? Or is it you yourself who is losing it? Where is your hard earned money going?

Ever wondered why our inflation rate never goes below two digits? Why food prices go high day by day? Why the auto rickshaw and taxi fares never go down? And why Governments fail to keep promises regarding price levels?

Ever wondered why poor are getting poorer while the rich get richer? Why Garlic which was Rs 40/kg last year, now costs Rs 240/kg?

They have blamed it on all, from bad climate to bad government, from improper distribution system to improper markets; Yes, these are the problems. But are these the root problems or is there something more fishy going behind the scene?

This book goes into deep analysis of the widely accepted but “unquestioned” claims. It questions the very fundamentals taught by our economic institutions and shows how they lead to MONETARY INJUSTICE. And its all based on statistics, facts and evidences. Its a no-nonsense-book.

And the book doesn’t leave the mystery unsolved. It provides the solution under the title which I feel would invite most grudges against this book – “Islamics Economics And Commerce”.

I invite everyone to read the book with an open hart and an unprejudiced mind.

All intellectual discussions related to this book are most welcome at contact@scanislam.com.

Importance of Sunnah & Hadiths

By Admin

There are two main fundamental sources of knowledge in Islam – The Qur’an and the Hadeeth. Often people associate Islam with teachings and commandments of only Qur’an; this is true for both Muslims and non-Muslims. However this attitude of ignoring the Hadeeth or Sunnah has lead to many misunderstandings about the already misunderstood way of life, Islam. Best example being that of the perception of Islam promoting hatred. Such doubts and baseless allegations arise mostly due to partial study of Islamic literature.

Concept of God in Islam

By Admin

In this short audio lecture, Dr.Bilal Philips explains the pure monotheistic Concept of God in Islam.

The concept of God in Islam is unique. According to Islam, God is the CREATOR of the universe. Hence, He is completely different from His CREATION. God cannot be anything like a man, women, tree or an animal. In fact, even space & time are His creations, and He is not subject to them.

In short, God Almighty is incomparable to His creations.

The concept of God in Islam

By Admin

There are many religions and spiritual institutions that say they believe in One God. Even many polytheistic religions do not entirely claim to believe in multiple gods. Amidst these claims of Monotheism by one and all, people usually misinterpret Islam as ‘just another’ religion that believes in ‘One God’.

However, a real look into Islamic concept of God makes one realize the degree to which a Islam believes in this Oneness of God, and how it is so very different and distinctly pure from all others that claim to believe in one God.
