2013_4_4_16_38_8_697Presently, there is just exceeding 7.1 billion people inhabiting this planet. 7.1 billion people that hold onto different cultures, beliefs, norms and values. As a group we may disagree on a lot, however there is one idea that no one, not a soul from the civilisations that existed before us and the ones that will follow us can disagree with: “death”. Death has been around since the beginning of creation.

Throughout time, there have been those that have been fixated on immortality and “attempted” it. I use the word attempt loosely as immortality is simply not possible, to say that they attempted it is as wild a notion as me trying to turn myself red by owning an amount of phosphorus.  In ancient Greece mortality was believed to be achievable through the gods assistance. There are Mormons that still hold the belief that John the Apostle is still alive and will be until the second coming. Nicolas Flamel, an alchemist from the 15th century was thought by the people of his time as one that had acquired immortality through means of the philosopher’s stone. Nevertheless, the truth is death is inevitable, one cannot cheat death, nor reach immortality. One day the earth itself will implode and disintegrate. Death knows no timing, it can be abrupt and unexpected or a long time coming through some debilitating illness. Our bodies were not made to last for an eternity, the human body perishes easily and there is no way to avoid that. Medicine has provided us with ways to prolong life sure, but to avoid death that will never be possible.

We are born into this world, those that make it into adulthood will be faced with the choice of deciding how they would to live their life till death. Do not let this short life pass without posing and contemplating the fundamental questions of life; who created me? why am I here? is there a purpose for my creation? Your soul seeks these answers do not stop listening, do not shut yourself off. There are those that may believe that they have “sinned” far to much to change their chosen path. I assure you that is simply not possible. Islam teaches that Allah is the Most Merciful, the Most Forgiving, the Qur’an also teaches that sins hold different gravities. A sin committed against a fellow human is far more severe than one against oneself. Allah teaches that one of the worst sins is committed when one assumes that Allah is incapable of forgiveness because one might see it as too serious of an offence to warrant forgiveness.


Sahih International Translation
Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”


Sahih International Translation
And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.

In conclusion, Allah is Forgiving he is always capable of Forgiving any sin regardless of its severity. You need to forgive Yourself and give yourself the chance Allah knows you deserve. You deserve the chance to ensure a place for yourself in paradise no one other than yourself can get you in there. Be your own hero and save yourself.



imagesHello to all my faithful readers,
I do apologize for my silence lately, nevertheless, I am back now.
I started this blog while under the assumption that everyone holds a belief in some ideology, whether it be religion, science, etc…a crude oversight on my part. Allow me to take the opportunity to rectify my error and write to those of you out there that simply do not believe in any specific doctrine.
Happiness, happiness is a conceptualization that many might argue does not exist. We go through life desperately trying to grasp that sense of “happiness” we see portrayed on movie sets. We look to those that we think have it better than ourselves whether it be a celebrity in Hollywood, or simply someone that is better looking, has more disposal income, has it easier, etc. But, I am here to tell you that true happiness does not exist. I was speaking to a friend the other day and she said life is “hell”. I was surprised to hear that and my first instinct was to retaliate, however, I didn’t and I have spent time since thinking about her statement. I have come to the conclusion that I agree with her. I must say I have so much respect for this young woman as she has seen through the charades, the facade that this world has created suggesting that ultimate happiness is attainable. This world is a place, where war and famine have been on a continuous loop for oh so long. This world is a place where we are born and made to believe that we can grow up, dream big, attain those dreams and have a life of happiness. Our lives are so fragile, where a little tumor can bring our life to a crashing halt, where a little car accident may shatter our mere existence. The only truth we know is that we are here, alive on this earth, enduring the sharp jabs of pain, with the continuous risk of death looming in every minute. So, whats the point I ask you, were we put on this earth to suffer? Is the world nothing more than a masochistic existence? Were we merely put on this earth to endure pain and suffering, all of which will end with the sweet release of death into an unknown abyss, or will we simply disappear into a black hole and simply be no more. My answers to all those questions is “no”, plain an simple “no, that is not the reason”. Maybe, I am just an enthusiastic, optimistic person. To those that do believe in all that I am truly apologetic as that must be horrifying. The idea of not knowing to me seems quite frightening. To those that have lived their lives with these beliefs I commend you on your bravery.

In this world their are two types of happiness, happiness of the body and happiness of the soul. That feeling is derived from the activities we indulge in and enjoy, whether it be a hobby, reaching a personal goal, basically any activity purely built upon what you enjoy, hedonism. That happiness is not ever lasting as we might eventually get bored or tiresome with the monotony of life, which is why we eventually move on to a new goal we hope will help us get that happiness we long for. So, how do we maintain happiness? Now onto happiness that is felt by the soul. Psychologists, philosophers and many more have attempted to define what the soul is. However, they have failed; all we know is that there is an entity within us, one that does not have a locality in human anatomy, but one that is significant enough to set apart the living from the dead. We can see evidence of the existence of a soul through our behaviors. People often confuse happiness with the fulfilment of desires. But, as they say money cannot buy happiness. Narcotics and drugs do not achieve happiness they simply mask unhappiness as they are used to disassociate one’s unhappiness from reality. So, how do we achieve happiness? How do we satisfy our hungry soul?

Religion: religion is a doctrine that suggests that it provides us with the answers to those unanswered questions. Happiness is realized by unearthing the answers our soul seeks. The soul seeks the knowledge of existence, knowledge of a creator, guidance, details on life and whether this is an afterlife. All Abrahamic religions preach that there is an afterlife, that there is heaven and hell, that those that perform according to their book, in this world will go to heaven and those that spend their time harming themselves or others will face the fire of hell. To some that may seem a tired notion, that holds about as much validity as belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, a concept used by parents to straighten out those rowdy children. Earlier on we declared that the world holds evil and injustice, would it make sense for a person that has never harmed anyone a day in his/her life to meet the same ending as an oppressor that dictated corruption, racism, war and crime. Heaven and hell has erected to ensure a balance or at least to make sure that what is fair will eventually happen. When a criminal walks free we should find comfort in the fact that they will eventually meet their fate. When those awful girls gossip about you know that there is a God that will inflict upon them the punishment they deserve.

We live in a world where the parents that brought you up may disappoint you, in a world full of liars, cheaters and thieves. People that are green with envy, hypocritical gossips loom behind every corner. So, there has to be someone, something that will defend your honor and there is. Don’t give up on the world just yet because God will never give up on you. Some people believe that if they have already committed “sins” that ensures them a spot in hell. That is the furtherest from the truth, the idea of God, the reason it is a concept many find hard to grasp is because we cannot understand his unlimited patience, his eternal absolution. We too quickly forget that God is not human, we might hold grudges and find it difficult to move on and forget, but God he is merciful, endlessly forgiving.

A verse Islam preaches: اللهم انك عفو كريم تحب العفو فاعف عني
Translation: O Allah , You are forgiving. You love to forgive, so forgive me.
Now it is time for you to forgive yourself and give yourself a chance at true happiness.

the Old or New Testament or an Entirely Different Book?



The world today holds an abundance of religions, varying on who they “worship”, what and who they look up to and idolize… Out of all of them, there are three that hold more attributes in common than the rest, the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Strictly speaking they all worship the same God, all three were introduced by men chosen by God; Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad peace be upon them all. So, the question comes down to this which one do we follow, which one do we choose. People today believe that these three religions are in conflict, however, the truth is that they all validate each other as both Torah and the Bible mention that Muhammad will come.

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him (pbuh), is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16: “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”  Translated to “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.” in King James Bible, English Revised Version and is present in many more (1). In the Hebrew language “im” is added for respect. As shown above “im” is added after the Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) name. The Prophet’s (pbuh) name has been translated to “altogether lovely”. In Arabic the name means the thanked one, the praised one or the one pleased with. Regardless, in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is still present (Rabbi reciting Song of Solomon 5:16). Another verse from the Torah (chapter 18 verse 18: Book of Deuteronomy) states that God said the following to Moses (pbuh) “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is like Moses (pbuh):
Both had a father and a mother, while Jesus (pbuh) was born miraculously without any male intervention.
[Mathew 1:18 and Luke 1:35 and also Al-Qur’an 3:42-47]
Both were married and had children. Jesus (pbuh) according to the Bible did not marry nor have children.
Both died naturally, while Jesus (pbuh) was raised up to the heavens alive.  Al-Qur’an 4:157-158: “And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain”
Muhammad (pbuh) is from among the brethren of Moses (pbuh). Arabs are brethren of the Jews. As Abraham (pbuh) had two sons: Ishmail and Isaac peace be upon them both, the Arabs are the descendants of Ishmail (pbuh) and the Jews are the descendants of Isaac (pbuh).

FAMILY TREE {All Prophets}

In the Gospel, according to John (Chapters 14, 15, 16) Jesus spoke of the “Paraclete” or the “Comforter” who will come after Jesus, who will be sent by Father as another Paraclete, who will teach new ideas that the people surrounding Jesus could not sustain. While, the Paraclete is described as the spirit of truth (whose meaning resembles Muhammad’s title as “Al-Amin“, translated to “the trustworthy”), he is identified in one verse as the Holy Ghost (John 14:26). Also, the idea that the prophecy is in reference to the Holy Ghost is seemingly incorrect as the prophecy mentions that the “Comforter” will only come after Jesus (pbuh) is gone. While, the Holy Ghost was around during Jesus’s earthly life. The Dictionary of the Bible (Ed. J. Mackenzie) stated “Those items, it must be admitted do not give an entirely cohesive picture.”

There were Christians that knew that the Paraclete was a man not a spirit, but they were led astray by men that did not meet full description provided by the prophecy.  Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the Paraclete, the Comforter, the Helper, the Trustworthy sent by God following the time of Jesus. He spoke of Jesus and his mother, Virgin Mary through what he was taught by God and his book the Qur’an. He preached a novel doctrine, he spoke of what he was revealed by means of the Holy Ghost, which the Qur’an identifies as the angel Gabriel, God’s most trusted and magnificent creation. He won over many believers through his well-preserved teachings. Muslims till today still pray, worship, fast and recite the Qur’an the exact way the Prophet (pbuh) did. These teachings will remain preserved as will the Holy book, a promise made by God to his loyal slaves. Muhammad peace be upon him was and is the last messenger of God. He was also the only messenger that was capable of uniting humanity under God and leading them down the straight path of truth. He spoke of many details of the past, future and science, as he was taught them through the Qur’an. Muhammad (pbuh) was an illiterate man that knew nothing of science or poetry, but through his revelations he recited the most intricate of poetry that spoke of details he personally had no knowledge of. The criterion given by Moses to distinguish between true and false prophets (Deuteronomy 18:22), described no one other than Muhammad (pbuh).

As for those that argue that John  the Baptist is the Prophet that the Torah and the New Testement speak of, I implore you to consider this: John 1:19-21
19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders[a] in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was.
20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.”
21 They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No.”

The Holy Qur’an was and is the last of God’s revelations and in His book he mentions that Muhammad (pbuh) was mentioned previously in both the Torah and Bible:
“Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written [i.e., mentioned] in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden (2) and the shackles which were upon them (3). So they who have believed in him, honoured him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful.” (7:157)


(1) Find proof of which I speak here –
(2) Difficulties in religious practice.
(3) i.e., extreme measures previously required for repentance and retribution without recourse to compensation.



Astronomy has been known as a an Arab forte as they were the first to excel in that specific domain. So, regardless of whether one believes that the Qu’ran said it first and it was the soul book that educated them on astronomy, the Qur’an served to educate humanity on so much more. Now, its time to venture into the knowledge of physics the Qur’an supplied humankind with.

Democritus, a man of Greek origin was the first to propose the theory of atomism, assuming that the atom was the smallest unit of matter. Nevertheless, we now know better, as modern science has taught us that an atom can be split and within it, protons, electrons and neutrons can be located. The Arabs held the belief in the same theory “Dharrah” being the Arabic word for atom. Nonetheless, the Qur’an came along and challenged this notion “But those who disbelieve say, “The Hour will not come to us.” Say, “Yes, by my Lord, it will surely come to you. [Allah is] the Knower of the unseen.” Now absent from Him is an atom’s weight within the heavens or within the earth or [what is] smaller than that or greater, except that it is in a clear register-” This verse conveys that Allah knows the seen and unseen and He does not miss anything whether it be as minuscule as the weight of an atom or even smaller or bigger, whether it be on land or the heavens above.


What about an entirely different study, geography what does the Qur’an teach about geography? Let’s begin with the water cycle, Bernard Palissy (1580) was the first narrate the process of the water cycle. Within the narration he reported the amount that evaporates from the oceans and the amount that cools down to form clouds. He described how the clouds move towards the land where they rise, condense and release precipitation. Further, the water gathers in lakes and streams and eventually pours back into the sea. Another wonder people speculated and hypothesized about was the underground water. Aristotle theorized that water condensed within cool mountain caverns and later formed underground lakes that pooled into springs. Now, it is known that water seeps into the ground through cracks on its surface. Now, lets look to see what the Qur’an said “Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky and makes it flow as springs [and rivers] in the earth; then He produces thereby crops of varying colours; then they dry and you see them turned yellow; then He makes them [scattered] debris, Indeed in that is a reminder for those of understanding.” (Al-Quran: 39:21) How about this verse “And of His signs is [that] He shows you the lightening [causing] fear and aspiration and He sends down rain from the sky by which He brings to life the earth after its lifelessness. Indeed in that are signs for a people who use reason.” (30:24)
And, this “And We have sent down rain from the sky in a measured amount and settled it in the earth. And indeed, We are able to take it away.”  (23:18)

So, my personal vote is Aristotle is but a simple mortal, at liberty of error just as much as the rest of us. What’s yours?

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? – William Shakespeare: Sonnet 18

ancient-astronomyThe Sun, one of the most curious of creations, a mass of fire floating up in space, one we have grown so accustomed too. It greets us at the crack of dawn and bids us good night a number of hours later. In ancient times, people looked up to the sun and moon, called upon them as their gods and prayed and worshiped these two entities because they believed them to be so daunting and beautiful two aspects which we still hold today. We wax poetic literature comparing a beautiful woman to the moon. Maya Angelou described the “Phenomenal Woman”‘s smile to the sun. Another attribute that made them worthy of this title was their immortally. Without fail we can calculate the exact time the sun rises any time of the year because it abides by a clock that can be studied and synced to science. However, is the sun really as immortal as our fathers thought it to be or will it, like everything else,  come to an end? “And the sun runs unto a resting place, for him: that is the decree of (Him), the Exalted in Might, the All-knowing. (Al-Qur’an 36:38)

The sun’s light is a result of a chemical process that has been occurring persistently for five billion years. However, in sync with the rest of creations it too will cease to exist marking the end of life on earth. As seen in the above English interpretation there is mention of the sun running unto a resting place, suggesting that it runs to a determined place and on a prescribed day it will terminate.

It was earlier believed that space was but a vacuum, later this notion was rectified as it was discovered that there are in fact bridges of matter referred to as plasma. Plasma is at times considered the fourth state of matter and consists of ionized gas containing corresponding numbers of free positive ions and electrons. The Quranic verse that mentions this is “He who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between” (25:59).

Edwin Hubble (1925) was the first, to be able to provide observational evidence for the receding of the galaxies from one another, thus suggesting the expansion of the universe. This is now regarded as irrefutable scientific fact. The Qur’an recited “And raw heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander” (51:47). Stephen Hawking once stated in his book A Brief History of Time (1988) “The discovery that the universe is expanding was one of the greatest intellectual revolutions of the 20th century.” The Qur’an said it before 1409 years before Stephen Hawking!

There are those that attempt to refute the knowledge of the Qur’an as they claim that Arabs were advanced in astronomy anyway. However, what they fail to realize is that the Arabs were advanced in astronomy due tot he knowledge the Qur’an provided not the other way around.

How could anyone, but the Creator possibly know such intricate detail?


World_Muslim_Population_MapOur race at large is always so quick to delegate blame away from ourselves, lest we are held responsible for our own actions. For a while now we have been exploring a holy book and today I will reveal its identity. But, before I do read this verse and speculate where and with whom the fault of the waging of brutal wars in the name of religion lies. “And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without  knowledge. Thus, we have made pleasing to every community their deeds, then to their Lord is their return and He will inform about what they used to do” (6:108). This verse and all the other verses mentioned in previous posts are derived from the Holy Qur’an. The Qur’an is the book of Islam. Islam is referred to as a religion by those that are not Muslim, however, for those that are; they know and comprehend that Islam is not so. Islam, is a book of laws, it encompasses the laws of life, it teaches and defines the moral code, it incorporates such specific detail that people are expected to live by. Muslims recognize Islam as a doctrine for life rather than a religion where certain hours are delegated to its individual practice. Islam’s image has been misrepresented and slandered by the media and propaganda of those that fear the power of Islam. The word “islam” is literally the Arabic word for peace, it preaches and teaches a life of peace. I implore you to put in the effort to uncover the truth, no one likes being lied to. Do not allow the media to have such a grasp on your thoughts, do not allow yourself to be misled, stand up for your rights; you have the right to know where you came from, why you are here, who created you, you have the right to pursue whatever beliefs you choose so put in the time to discover the ultimate truth.

Now I ask you if Islam is truthfully a religion of terror then why is it that it continues to grow, why is it that day in day out people continue to enter the religion of Islam? Continue to read and I promise to try my best to help you discover the unwavering truth.

Always, S

the Skies Above

Giant-Sun-Flare-compared-with-EarthOnce it was believed by the grandest of civilisations and the most acclaimed of mankind that the moon emitted its own light and that it was not a natural satellite; notions that we now know to be false. The holy book that we have been studying said it first, “Blessed is He who made constellations in the skies and placed therein a lamp and a moon giving light” (25.61). The book refers to the sun using a few varying terminologies, the first being “shams” which literally means the sun, described as a “siraj” meaning a torch, a “wahhaj” meaning a blazing lamp or a “diya” meaning a shining glory. The descriptions are all appropriate as the sun does emit light and heat through combustion. While, the moon in Arabic is called “qamar” and it described as “muneer” meaning an entity that gives light not its own, but that of the sun; “See ye not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another. And made the moon a light in their midst and made the sun as a glorious lamp?” (71:15-16).

Until relatively recently we held the notion that the sun was stationary and that the planets orbited around the sun, the entity that stands in the center of our solar system. However, scientists have recently uncovered the truth that the sun does indeed move upon its axis just like the rest of the planets do. Once more, our book said it first, “It is He who created the night and day and the sun and the moon: All (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its rounded course” (21:33). The word used in the original text that is translated into “swim” is “yasbahun” derived from “sabaha”. When used in the context of a person on the ground it signifies walking or running, when used in the context of water it would mean swimming; the body of the individual is in motion and is also moving, such as the arms and legs of the body are moving while the individual moves across a plane and not fixed at a point like when dancing or staying afloat in water. In relevance to a celestial enitity it means that this entity is rotating as it moves through space. Through the observation of the sun’s shadows, it has been calculated that the sun does indeed rotate and more specifically it takes twenty-five Earth days to complete a single rotation. Evidence has also been acquired about the sun’s movement through the Milky Way Galaxy; it travels at a speed of 150miles/sec and takes 200 million years to complete a single revolution around the center of our galaxy. “It is not permitted to the sun to catch up the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day: Each just swims along in its own orbit according to law (36:40). Modern science has also found that moon turns on its axis and also revolves around the world completing one revolution every twenty-nine and a half  Earth days.

So, I ask you who and what could of created such a book with such impeccable accuracy? Who could have known such unequivocal and explicit details about our universe except its Creator?




Renowned Nobel Prize winner, exceptional physicist, Albert Einstein once declared, “Science without religion is lame . Religion without science is blind.”

Our world holds logic and science with the highest regard. Today, we begin testing the validity and reliability of our hypothesis “Does God exist”. Last time, I spoke of a book, a book that claims to be irrefutable and now we will begin to examine and investigate it.

Modern science has widely agreed on the “Big Bang” phenomena. Astrophysicists and astronomers have researched the creation of the universe and have arrived at the conclusion that it is a product of two processes. The first, the imploding of the primary nebula followed by the “Big Bang” which formed the galaxies. Thereafter, the galaxies parted forming the constellations of stars, moons and the planets. If the variety is observed objectively a logical person would succumb to the notion that that all cannot be a byproduct of chance. In sync with this validated theorem is a verse in the book to which we speak, “Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of Creation), before We clove them asunder? ” (21:30). A book that was communicated by an illiterate man 1400 years ago in the mist of the Arabian Deserts at a time where neither the education or instruments were available to make this earth shattering discovery.

Scientists have also discovered that galaxies were formed from the celestial matter which was in the form of gaseous matter. A gaseous matter that resembled smoke more than gas. “Then He turned to the sky and it had been (as) smoke: He said to it and to the earth: “Come ye together, willingly or unwillingly.” They said, “we do come (together) in willing obedience (41:11). According to CERN: “For a few millionths of a second, shortly after the big bang, the universe was filled with an astonishingly hot, dense soup made of all kinds of particles moving at near light speed. This mixture was dominated by quarks – fundamental bits of matter – and by gluons, carriers of the strong force that normally “glue” quarks together into familiar protons and neutrons and other species. In those first evanescent moments of extreme temperature, however, quarks and gluons were bound only weakly, free to move on their own in what’s called a quark-gluon plasma.”

Plasma is ionized gaseous particles, which are atoms that have lost some or all of their electrons. CERN goes on to say that the first full atom (electrons and all) was not formed until 380,000 years after the big bang, but that nuclei were formed within the first minutes. This leaves everything as a plasma. Smoke does not have to give color or be from combustion, ie.  the radiation given off of a jet engine that bends the light at the point forming a colorless like smoke or the “smoke” given off from frozen CO2. Helium and hydrogen were the first elements that we know that were formed, which forms a plasma state.  These plasma states are normal in everyday life, such as the Aurora borealis. The plasma is ionized gaseous particles, which does look like smoke (often videos are sped up). Personally, the plasma fits this description to the “smouldering” and “smoke” aspects.

Is it not a smoldering smoke?

It is chronicled that humanity once held the the belief that the earth is flat for many centuries humans feared to fall off the edge. In 1577 that was proven incorrect by Sir Francis Drake through his sail around the world. Now, let’s look into the book, it narrates “seest thou not that Allah merges Night into Day and he merges Day into Night” (31:29). In this context merging is used to describe the slow change of day into night and so on. This slow change is what allows the experience of day break, evening and day fall and the many other times of day which would only be possible if the world is around. If it were flat we would only experience two timings night and day. Another verse: “He created the Heavens and the earth in true (proportions): He makes the night overlap the day and the day overlap the night” signifying that day and night are not two sides of a coin, alas there are times of the day that are neither one completely. Again, if the world was flat we would only experience the two extremes.

Through time it has been discovered that the earth is not in fact a true sphere, but an oblate spheroid, much like an ostrich egg which is what this book compares the earth to in this next verse. “And the earth, moreover, hath He extended (to a wide expanse) (79:30). A literal translation of this book is somewhat impossible since it is written in an ancient expansive language and English with its limited vocabulary does not do it justice. The book uses the word “dahaha” which by definition is an ostrich egg. This signifies that this man spoke of such specific, articulate science that he could of no means of his own have discovered in his lifetime. This book has weathered years, years that have only added to its validity and reliability. 


Budda or Jesus? Zeus or Allah?

Last I left you, we had surfaced on a stable landing that gives us ground for the suggestibility that there is indeed a Power that has moulded our universe into existence. The English language provides a label for this Power, “god”. Throughout history we have tried time and time again to grasp the fundamentals and categorize the attributes of a god. Whether it was in Ancient Greece with Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Athena or the Roman gods Fortuna, Jupiter, Mercury…How about in Ancient Egypt with the worshiping of the Pharaohs. In todays world there are so many variations of what and who god is, Budda, Vinshnu, Waheguru, Allah, Jesus…So, it seems fair to say that in this unjust world humans seek refuge and belief in a higher power because the alternative is just too sad to bare. To walk through life not believing that there will be complete justice in the end. In a world that is rattled by war, crime and corruption, humans need to have faith that those individuals that wronged them will get what they deserve in the end. Even for those that do not necessarily believe in a specific entity use statements of comfort like “what goes around, comes back around” and their belief in karma to provide them with the solace their soul so desperately seeks.
Logically, a god should be an entity more powerful than a human, the last time I checked as humans we cannot even find a cure for cancer let alone dare profess that a measly human was responsible for the creation of the solar systems and everything it encompasses. Another attribute should be that this “god” is all knowing, since he will be the one that punishes those that harm us. So, linearly that should mean that he is powerful, at least powerful enough to generate a suitable punishment. Looking out of my window at the docks that lay beneath me ever so peacefully in the water, hearing the birds’ song waft in through the open window, I cannot help, but see that this god must be beautiful. Beautiful because he is responsible for all the beauty that surrounds us. From the beauty and resilience of the oceans, to the opaque, serene moon, to the warmth of the sun that we associate with “good, happy” days. To the timely professionalism of the sun as it does not fail to show up and set and rise again.
Therefore, how do we decide with all these different beliefs in who god is, how do we choose which one is “the one”. Out of all the various religions out there, there is one, one that speaks of science, science that during its start there was no means to uncover. Science, that we are only beginning to discover its accuracy. This religion was revealed over 1435 years ago. It was communicated to humankind through a book and a man, a man that was illiterate and a book that held the most intellectual and profound poetry ever known to mankind. This book that spoke of science so specific it stands to validate its authenticity. A book that divulged that when two natural bodies of water meet the two with different densities, temperatures and salinity will never interpenetrate. To take a completely disparate example: human embryonic development.
It is in this book that this development was communicated first. It begins with the word “Alaaqah” which through interpretation to English has three definitions: a leech, a suspended element and a blood clot. Through modern science it has been upheld that the human embryo does indeed bare resemblance to the marginal appearance of a leech. This embryo also receives its nourshiment similarly to the way a leech does by feeding on the mother’s blood. The suspended element refers to the next stage the way the embryo dangles in the womb. Then, the embryo adopts the appearance of a blood clot due to the ample amount of blood it holds. Next, the book articulates that the “mudghah” stage which is transliterated into chewed substance. The markings left by teeth resemble the somites on the back of the embryo. Professor Emeritus Keith L. Moore is one of the most prominent scientists in the fields of anatomy and embryology, he is also the author of “The Developing Human”, a book which has been translated into eight different languages. Through his research he has found what was mentioned in this book to be absolutely accurate. Professor Moore once said, “He could not have known such details because he was an illiterate man with absolutely no scientific training.”

The Lego Theorem


Love, love is a feeling, an emotion that can vary in strength, in form, in passion. Parents are at times too quick to dish-out the statement of “you’re too young to be in love” when their fifteen years old daughter speaks of her first love. Nevertheless, that is simply not true. A person is born into this world and the first of many emotions s/he will feel is love. When a baby’s cries can only be soothed by their guardian, that sole person that stays up all through the night when said baby is sick, the one who will help arm the baby with the command of language, with the appropriate skills to manipulate utensils whatever they maybe. The one that will help as their child struggles with tasks such as learning to stand erect, later toddle along and finally stride with ease.

Love appears in many forms and passing through life without feeling any form is fairly difficult. Love can be between a mother and a child, between two friends, between two lovers, between a master and a pet, between two siblings…Take a moment and picture that person that you have more love for than any other, think of the way you feel about them. I can in all truthfulness, declare that the way I feel about the one I love is a feeling so overwhelming, so utterly intoxicating that “love” seems too limited, too inadequate, too feeble a word to do my emotions justice.

So, here we are so completely and irrevocably in love how do we go about making our feelings known to our significant individual. Men get down on one knee in a fancy, bourgeois restaurant or under the a nightsky with only the beauty of the full moon as witness the occassion. Why do men put in the effort? Why is it that as females we want the prefect diamond ring, the perfect dress, the perfect wedding…Why is it that we want a thoughtful, romantic husband? Why do we celebrate fathers’ day by going out of our way to make “his” day special? Why do we continue to celebrate birthdays, annivetsaries, mothers’ day, valentines and so on…We do it because we want the ones we love to know just how much we appreciate them and how strong our love is for them.

I have been blessed in so many ways, let’s see I have been gifted with sight, ability to hear, communicate, walk, love…all my abilities are gifts, blessings that have been so perfectly packaged and created for me, one person out of seven billion. How can I wake up every morning with the same abilities and not believe in a creator. How is it that the same respiratory system that equips me with the blessing of breathing also allows you to take in a breathe too. How can humans be so anatomically similar to apes, but yet be so distinct? How can any of the creations that surround us be a product of anything other than a higher power? How is it that I an able bodied, sane person have unexpressed genetic mutations and other individuals such as those with Down’s, Prader-Willi, Cri du chat be so affected and diabled by their mutation, so intellectually different?

Let’s put the theory to the test. As children we played with lego or a toy to that affect. Coup up a handful of pieces and toss them, no matter how high one throws them, no matter how many times one repeats the task never will two pieces latch on, let alone many pieces so perfectly and intrinsically positioned.

Ponder on our hypothesis
