Polygamy in Islam

By Admin

This book is the outcome of thorough studies of sister Jameelah Jones and Sheikh Bilal Philips, both of whom reverted to Islam in 1971 an 1972 respectively. Their western background facilitated a deep understanding of the subject. They have dealt with it strictly in the light of Qur’an and Sunnah and have described important characteristics of marriage in Islam. They have provided a straight forward reply of why Islam allows four wives. The book has been well received by the readership and is key in dispelling the malignant propoganda against Islam.

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?

Polygamy in Islam (Audio)

By Admin

Dr.Bilal Philips, who co-authored the book “Polygamy in Islam” with Jameelah Jones, speaks about the same in this audio.

All religions allow and practice polygamy. However, polygamy in Islam is not for the desires of a man, but for the protection of rights of women. Islam is the only religion which asks man to marry only one wife if he cannot do justice. However, it also allows polygamy in order to protect the women from being misused by the society. And even that is restricted to a maximum of four.

Dr.Bilal Philips speaks about the importance of marriage in Islam and explains how it is an institution of security for the woman. He goes on to highlight the fact with statistics that the most of the people in the west are falling into illegitimate relationships. Islam on the other hand, doesn’t allow this at all. Rather it asks a man to give the all rights to a woman he wants to be with.

He further brings to light the social problems that exist today and how polygamy is the only solution to it.

Does the Bible ever say, “Jesus is God”?

By Admin

The basic concept of Jesus being God is believed to be derived from Bible. However the concept of Jesus not being God could also be taken out from the same Bible. In fact things become very clear when both the claims are seen together, as done by Dr Jearld Dirks, who graduated from the Divinity school from Harvard University and is a former minister (deacon) of the United Methodist Church, in his talk on ‘Is Jesus God?’.
