Allah has promised those of you who have iman and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their deen with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. ‘They worship Me, not associating anything with Me.’ Any who are kafir after that, such people are deviators. (Surat an-Nur, 55)
Allah created the earth for us
"He (Allah) is the Creator of the heavens and the earth..." (Surat ash-Shura: 11)
Allah is the One Who created earth, the Sun, stars and Moon. So how did all the living things on earth come into being? Imagine a huge planet with its surface completely empty. There are no humans or animals, no plants or insects.
Earth has been decorated in a lot of detail for living things to survive. Allah is the One Who has given earth all these details. Otherwise none of us would have been able to live, neither you, nor your parents, or indeed any of your friends would have been here.
Let's consider how Allah created the earth so that living things can survive:
1. Think about… how orderly everything in the universe is. The sun has been put in the exact position from which it could warm us and give us light at the same time. If there were no sun, there would not have been one living thing on earth. Neither us, nor the animals nor any other creatures would have been able to live.
2. Allah has also distanced the sun from earth to just the right extent. If earth was a little bit closer to the sun, the heat would have scorched it and we would not have been able to live. If earth was a little more distant from the sun, then glaciers would have covered it and again, few living things would have been able to survive. This is one of the reasons why there is no life on other planets, because they are either too close to the sun or too distant from it.
3. As you know, living things need to breathe in order to live. We need oxygen in the air so that we can breathe. Exactly the right amount of oxygen exists in the air so that human beings can breathe. If there were a little bit more or a little bit less, neither we, nor the animals, nor the plants would have survived, because, as we have already said, we need to breathe in order to live. For this we need oxygen.
4. One of the most important things that make it possible for us to survive is water. No organism can live without water. For this reason, Allah has created some parts of earth as water. Three quarters of earth's surface is covered with water. However, there is no water on any of the other planets nor is there any water on the moon that you see at night. The essentials for living things are only available on earth.
Many events on earth make it possible for us to live. If even only one of these events doesn't take place, no living thing would be left on earth. So, is it possible that these thousands of events have come together spontaneously and formed such a place as earth? Of course not. Not even one of these events could happen by chance. Allah has created earth for human beings. And, because of this, earth is the most suitable place for us.
Fireflies attain maximum efficiency out of light
Fireflies are the most well known bioluminescent producing living beings. Scientists have been carrying out research and studies for years, in order to produce a type of light as efficient as the light produced by them. Fireflies attain maximum efficiency out of light and subsequently lose no energy. Indeed, as a result of this particular feature, they have been the subject of study for many years.
It is actually very surprising to see that a being that produces light does not get affected by any kind of excessive heat as a byproduct. As studies indicates, heat is always released during the production of any sort of light which is confirmed using today’s technological advances. Therefore, any beings producing this sort of light are expected to be harmed by high temperatures. However, these light producing beings do not get affected as next to no heat is released during the process of the production of their light. Instead, they produce a type of cold luminescence and their body systems are created accordingly.
Fireflies are insects that produce green and yellow lights as a result of a chemical reaction in their bodies. They use this light in order to attract a mate or for communication and the luminosity length differs according to the species. In some species, the male fireflies glow first in order to attract the female. In others, the female glows first to call out the male. Some species use their light in order to defend themselves against their attackers. The fact that they glitter with light is a deterrent for potential attackers, signaling to them that they possess a bad taste.
Allah created beings with this marvelous feature and presents it as a model for humans. The Almighty creates these details for a purpose only known to Him. One reason suggests prompting the development of people to think about nature, their environment and its surroundings. Our Lord, created everything in His infinite wisdom and for a reason. Not only did He create this feature for us to be awed, but He also inspired us with knowledge in terms of how we could use this feature to benefit mankind. In the Holy Qur’an, our Lord announces that we have no knowledge unless He wills it upon us:
“Allah, there is no god but Him, the Living, the Self-Sustaining. He is not subject to drowsiness or sleep. Everything in the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. Who can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them but they cannot grasp any of His knowledge save what He wills. His Footstool encompasses the heavens and the earth and their preservation does not tire Him. He is the Most High, the Magnificent. (Surah Al-Baqara, 255)
Our Prophet (saas) imparted that Hz. Mahdi (as)'s kneecaps are not flat but have outcurved structure
BOTH KNEECAPS [OF HZ. MAHDI (AS)] ARE OUTCURVED.
(Mu'jam al-Hadith, Imam Mahdi V. 4 p.154 and Qamal ud-Din V. 2 p. 376 and Bihar V. 52 p. 322)
Age : 146 to 65 million years old
Location : South Saskatchewan River Valley
Formation: Bear Paw Formation
Fossils that were gathered in the last 150 years proved that living species never changed or evolved from one another. This fact is underscored by this 146- to 65-million-year-old fossil of a lobster, no different from its counterparts alive today.
This book will send you on a journey inside your own body, a journey on which a great many surprises await you. You will discover that in your heart, there is a generator, and that when it cuts out, a spare generator steps in to replace it. You will see how cells in your lower intestine can recognize and trap iron atoms from among the many hundreds of different substances they encounter. You will witness miraculous events that have been taking place since the day you were born throughout what you refer to as “my body,” starting right beneath your skin.
From that point of view, your human body is a whole other world, with its own modes of transport, buildings, factories, infrastructure systems, equipment more highly advanced than even the most sophisticated technology in the 21st-century world, specialized elements (cells, hormones, glands) that exhibit unexpectedly conscious behavior, fully equipped defense troops, and many other marvels.
It is most important that we consider the events that take place inside this miniaturized world, because anyone who starts thinking about them will start liberating himself from a great illusion. It will no longer be possible to deceive with evolutionary tales of how Man came into being by chance those who have witnessed the perfect creation in their own bodies. They will have now made the acquaintance of their own Creator, Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
You, reading this book, will once again encounter an incontrovertible truth. Allah created you from nothing and shaped you flawlessly. In return, what you must do is to know that when you rise in the morning, every new day bestowed upon you, is a blessing from Allah, and to give thanks to Him.
There is no compulsion where deen is concerned. Right guidance has become clearly distinct from error. Anyone who rejects false deities and believes in Allah has grasped the Firmest Handhold, which will never give way. Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. (Surat al-Baqara, 256)
Islam is a religion based on love and compassion, which calls for peace and fosters a life in absolute sincerity and honesty before Allah. Therefore it is vitally important for the one to live by the religion of Islam to be a Muslim with his own will and aspiration and observe Allah's commands and advise from heart and soul through personal conscientious contentment.
Muslims instruct goodness and rule out evil as to Allah's command to "command what is right and forbid what is wrong" (Surah Luqman, 17) and call people to the path of Allah with words of purity. Yet, believers know Allah guides to the right way (Surah Al-Qasas, 56), so after elucidating the truth they leave people to their own freedom of conscience. The contrary is out of the question, because trying to make someone Muslim by means of pressure, threat or force is primarily against the essence of Islam...
