  3. Niyyah?

    k-meleon has mentioned most of this but i'll clarify a few things. when you make niyyah. for exam, fajr, 2 rakkah farz I make intention of praying 2 rakkah farz of fajr salah facing towards the direction of Qibla for the pleasure of Allah (swt). If in Congregation, also add that 'I make intention of praying with jamaat, behind the imam' Hope, I could be of some help. Peace.

  5. What about Seven Heavens? Question: Allah Ta'alah says in the Qur'an that He created 'seven "skies" in layers (Tibaqa)'. Now what is meant by "skies" and what are layers or Tabaqs? There are a few more such questions, which must be answered in scientific terms as this world is now a 'scientific world'. We must be able to answer these questions to non-Muslims who know science and talk science. Answer: The reference to the fact that God has created seven heavens has generally been given in the Qur'an, in response to the skepticism shown by the disbelievers regarding the possibility of life after death. The Qur'an, in response to this skepticism has asked man to ponder over the fact that has not God created him in the first instance? If God can create man once, then why can't He create him a second time? Is the first creation more difficult or the second one? etc. It is, generally, in this context that the Qur'an says that it is not even possible for man to judge the level of the powers of God, and as an example it refers to the vastness of His creation. It says that God has not just created one sky - i.e., one universe, but seven such skies - or seven universes. It seems that the huge universe that we live in, the one whose boundaries are not yet known to man, is just one of these heavens (universes) there are seven others, of which we - with all our scientific developments - hardly know anything about. Certain verses of the Qur'an clearly indicate that the whole huge mass of space around us is just one of these universes. The Qur'an says that we created seven heavens, one over the other (the word "Tibaqa" means one over the other). Another verse, which points to this fact is the following: And He created seven skies (heavens) in two days, and taught each sky its duties. And He adorned the nearest sky (or: the sky of this world) with lamps (stars)... (Fussilat 41: 12) The above verse refers to the fact that God has adorned the closest sky with stars. It seems from this verse that the whole universe that we are familiar with, and that too not yet completely, is the "Sama' e Dunya" or the closest heaven (or: the heaven of this world). We know that science has not yet been able to determine the boundaries of even the "Sama' e Dunya". It is therefore not only improbable, but also impossible to explain this verse in scientific terms. The reason, as should be quite clear, is the limit of our scientific knowledge.
  6. We built seven firm layers above you. We installed a blazing lamp. (Qur'an, 78:12-13) As we know, the only source of light in the Solar System is the Sun. With advances in technology, astronomers discovered that the Moon was not a source of light but that it merely reflects the light reaching it from the Sun. The expression "lamp" in the above verse is a translation of the Arabic word "siraaj," which most perfectly describes the Sun, the source of light and heat. Don't you see how He created seven heavens in layers, and placed the Moon as a light in them and made the sun a blazing lamp? (Qur'an, 71:15-16) In the above verse, the word "light" is used for the Moon ("noor" in Arabic) and the word "lamp" for the Sun ("siraaj" in Arabic.) The word used for the Moon refers to a light-reflecting, bright, motionless body. The word used for the Sun refers to a celestial body which is always burning, a constant source of heat and light. On the other hand, the word "star" comes from the Arabic root "najama," meaning "appearing, emerging, visible." As in the verse below, stars are also referred to by the word "thaaqib," which is used for that which shines and pierces the darkness with light: self-consuming and burning: It is the star that pierces through darkness! (Qur'an, 86:3)
  7. Your under some very wierd illusion. Wake up to reality. look around you. everywhere there is Allah (swt) creations. You refuse to believe in Allah (swt) because you lack knowledge. Before you gave an example of a painter who signs his paintings, to prove that the painter created the paintings. Allah (swt) created the entire universe and beyond. Allah (swt) sent messengers upon mankind with holy scripures that prove of the existense of One God and his creations. Do you deny that the messengers came unto mankind? Do you deny that you were created by Allah (swt)?

  19. Problem With My Husband

    You can help him, through his problems if you think its possible. Remind your husband that he shouldn't be disobedient to Allah Almighty. Pray Salah, and make time for rememberance in Allah. Ya-Barr-u (The Source of All Goodness) If you are in the habit of taking intoxicants or committing adultery or indulging in any other evil, recite this name of Allah 7 times daily. Allah will guide you. If you recite this name of Allah excessively, Allah will expel the love of this world from your heart. If you recite this name of Allah 7 times and blow on your child soon after birth, Allah will grant your child protection from calamities until puberty. Insha-Allah. You could tell your husband to recite this daily. May Allah (swt) Save you from all problems and protect your family from shaytaan.Ameen.
