Innovative Way to Memorize the Quran -6


This lesson will be different from the previous lessons. I have found a suitable way for memorizing and it is complementary during sleeping! So, I advice you brother reader to take advantage of sleeping time in memorizing the Holly Quran!….Story with the QuranI had some time listened to the Quran when I was sleeping. That was by listening to a recorder which I left it playing. I listened to a voice of one of the readers and slept. After some time I had noticed that the memorization process became much easier. Even after several years, I noticed that what I had memorized from the Quran had been established in my memory. Years may have passed without reviewing a specific Surah and I find myself memorizing it in spite of not reviewing it!!I had found an explanation to this phenomenon. Memorizing during sleep leaves an impression and effect much greater than memorizing during vigilance. Therefore, Allah has made sleep one of His great signs. We have to take advantage of time because the Prophet (pbuh) had confirmed the importance of time to the believer.Amazing scientific factIf one sleeps for eight hours every day, this means that he spends third of his life in sleep. But, sleep is the one thing that we mostly spend our time in. However, does this mean that sleep is useless? Or it is one Allah's almighty signs. He said, "And among His Signs is the sleep that ye take by night and by day, and the quest that ye (make for livelihood) out of His Bounty: verily in that are signs for those who hearken." [Ar-Rum: The Roman: 23] So, sleep whether at night or day is a sign, but one of Allah's miracles which we should think about. Then, note how the verse was ended by the word "hear" as if there is a relationship between hearing sense and sleep. This what researchers have confirmed by live photos! A researcher had observed some individuals during their sleep. He photographed the brain of each of them by the magnetic resonance scanning. He found that the brain was enlivened during sleep! Then, he read some information to these sleepers. The surprise was that he found a response from the brain to what he was reading. So the learning process had taken place though the man was sleeping. But what is the scientific explanation to this strange phenomenon? However, new studies on the brain and sleep science showed that the brain does not rest even at sleep. But the brain establishes the information which has been learned during the day. It establishes that during sleep, glory to Allah!I have found several benefits for listening to the Quran especially during sleep. I will reintroduce a part of one my articles titled: Healing by Listening to the Quran:Some of those who are memorizing the Quran using this innovative way have questions that I have promised to answer. In this lesson, I will answer those questions:How was your experience with close examination of rhetoric aspects of the Quran while your major was scientific?There is no more beautiful than the moments where the believer enjoys the Quran memorization, consideration and studying. It is the greatness of the Quran that helps you to strengthen your Arabic as soon as you repeat and memorize, however, repetition of reading and listening to the Quran imparts a lot to man from linguistic and rhetoric aspects. Nonetheless, when I encounter some difficult words I used to resort to easier explanations or language dictionaries which I find easy to reach. I used to carefully examine a verse from the Quran for an hour for example and try to think about it, its words and their implications. I earned new meanings as soon as I had considerd it. So, Allah Almighty says, "Do they not consider the Qur'an (with care)? Had it been from other Than Allah, they would surely have found therein Much discrepancy. [An-Nisa: Women: 82] In the course of considering the legislative provisions, did you consult the books of Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqeh)? Consulting references and books is necessary. Wisdom is the believer's pursuit wherever it is found he takes it. Any book you encounter talkin[...]

Innovative Way to Memorize the Quran -5


Allah Almighty says in His Book: "There is, in their stories, instruction for men endued with understanding. It is not a tale invented, but a confirmation of what went before it….Allah Almighty says in His Book: "There is, in their stories, instruction for men endued with understanding. It is not a tale invented, but a confirmation of what went before it,- a detailed exposition of all things, and a guide and a mercy to any such as believe." [Yousif: Joseph: 111] Thus, if you want to memorize any story from the Quranic stories, you have to understand it and deduce from it lessons and sermons. Then, you start memorizing and you will find memorizing the story very easy.Joseph Surah is a truly a masterpiece of the Quranic stories… I remember how this Surah was my start in the journey of memorizing the Almighty's Book. One of the important things to find real enjoyment in memorizing is to start by what you love and what interests you without sticking to a certain ranking. Your objective will be is to please Allah Almighty and perfecting memorizing the Quran or part of the Quran. The objective is not to memorize the Quran according to its ranking. But if you memorize one Surah thoroughly in sake of Allah, it is much better for you than memorizing the whole Quran only for the sake of memorizing or to have people say that you have memorized the Quran!Therefore, that was my systematic way of memorization. The result was that what I had memorized stayed long though I did not revise it! I used to leave everything, sit to memorize the Book of Allah Almighty, find great pleasure in reciting the Quran and enjoy its meanings which capture hearts.We will try now memorizing Surah Joseph (pbuh). But before we start this job, we need to divide this Surah into portions according to the events of this story. Then, we memorize each portion alone, next, we connect the portions to each other. We will find ourselves memorizing this Surah without much effort.I will leave this Surah for you, dear reader to divide it into portions that suit your ability to memorize. The portions may be large or small. I will give you an idea about the story and the lessons it includes, so that you feel with me the events and the situation which were hints from this great Surah.The best storiesThe stories of the prophets in the Holy Quran come within the Surah verses, nonetheless, the Quran considered this story in a whole Surah because of its importance, many lessons, sermons and the benefits which the story had introduced to us. Therefore, we find Allah Almighty talk to His beloved Mohammed (pbuh) said to him: "We do relate unto thee the most beautiful of stories, in that We reveal to thee this (portion of the) Qur'an: before this, thou too was among those who knew it not."[Yousif: Joseph: 3]Joseph dreamed and told his father, "Behold! Joseph said to his father: "O my father! I did see eleven stars and the sun and the moon: I saw them prostrate themselves to me!" 5. Said (the father): "My (dear) little son! relate not thy vision to thy brothers, lest they concoct a plot against thee: for Satan is to man an avowed enemy! "[Yousif: Joseph: 4-5]. The father knows his sons and he knows that Joseph was the best of his brothers who hate him. Therefore, the father asked Joseph not to tell his brothers, because he was afraid that they may hurt Joseph.Joseph's brothersJoseph had a number of brothers who envy him for being their father's favorite. They wanted to separate him from their father and so they tried always to concoct plots for Joseph because their father loves him more. One day, they met and decided to take Joseph and throw him in the well to get rid of him and gain Jacob's, their father, affection. Therefore, they came, swindled their father and said, "They said: "O our father! why dost thou not trust us with Joseph,- seeing we are indeed his sincere well-wishers? 12. "Send him with us tomorrow to enjoy himself and play, and we shall take every care of him." 13. (Jacob) said: "Really it saddens me that ye should ta[...]

Innovative Way to Memorize the Quran -4


Who does not wish to memorize the whole Book of Allah Almighty? Who does not dream that the Quran be his companion in this world? Who does not accept that the Quran be a light for him in his grave? Is there a believer who does not accept to meet with Allah Almighty and he has memorized the Words of Allah?….Wishes are many but achieving them is not easy as some readers believe. All have experienced trying memorizing the Quran but soon they forgot what they had memorized. However, there are persons when they read the Quran; they barely understand anything of it.Notwithstanding, I assure all that those ideas are not true. From my personal experience, I have found that the easiest work a person can perform is to memorize verses from the Book of Allah Almighty. This is not only my experience but everyone who has memorized the Book of Allah and perfected reciting with its rules will tell you the same truth. However, if memorization of the Quran is that easy why many believers suffer from the difficulty of memorization? And we find others complaining from rapid forgetting, what is the solution?Before anything else, we must remember Allah's Almighty saying about the Quran, "And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?" [Al Qamar: The Moon: 17] This verse confirms that the Quran is easy to who likes to remember. Easiness of the Quran includes reciting, memorizing, understanding, considering and its wonders…So, the divine truth that we should realize first is that Allah Almighty will make memorization easy for who intended good faith on that. He will avail to him suitable circumstances for memorizing the Quran if he determines to memorize it, to go to Allah with a sound heart and to ask Allah assistance.We will start with an important paragraph about the mechanism of the memory so that we will be able through this piece of information to control our memory and make it subject to the will. This way will end oblivion forever.How does human memory work?Maybe, the most complex part in the human body is the brain which is responsible for remembering and retrieving information. This is a grace from Allah Almighty that we should appreciate and take care of. You may consider the brain as a computer that needs caring for, maintenance, and required feed. There is an important issue namely we take into account the method of information storage, so that it can be easily retrieved. If storage is associated with understanding, it will be more effective during retrieving. Therefore, we have to understand what we have memorized from available explanations.Also, considering the verses during memorization increases the effectiveness of storing and retrieving. And if we know that the memory memorizes by linking information together, we need to link the verses by considering and broadening the understanding and our imagination.For example, when I want to memorize Surah Joseph (pbuh), I must prepare myself. I need to know this story first and try to identify the wisdom of its presence in the Quran. Why Allah had revealed it to His beloved Mohammed (pbuh). What lessons that we can deduce from this story. We have thus prepared the brain to work and store well just as we prepare a computer to be ready to work.What is the correct way of reviewing what had been memorized before, how can we retrieve things we think we have forgotten?We should know that the subconscious mind of man is a major boon bestowed by Allah on us. However, provided that we use it in doing good and pleasing Allah Almighty. We should know that all things we have memorized will be copied in this subconscious, and they will stay for very long periods.So, we can conclude that caring and training of the subconscious mind continuously lead to take advantage of its memorization abilities, because the apparent mind is quickly oblivious. We can take advantage of the subconscious mind when trained how to contact it. The best times for that are at night before going t[...]

Innovative Way to Memorize the Quran -3


We receive several queries about memorizing the Holy Quran and the difficulties that many suffer from when they start memorizing the Book of Allah. Thus, we find them quitting memorizing after a while….questions, and assure that the perfect way for memorizing is to rely on Allah with a truthful heart and good faith and Allah will choose the suitable way for you.Is this way considered the perfect?For every man, there is a way that he is used to. I have asked one of those who had memorized the Quran about how he did that and he promptly told me if he does not have someone reading in front of him, he cannot memorize anything. There is someone else who memorizes by picturing the verses in his memory by opening the Quran and staring at for a long time. There is also a third person who is used to memorize the Quran by repeating. He repeats the verse hundred times until he memorizes it… and so each has a way he used to, but what is the perfect way?You must not think there is only one way or your way is the best because you are used to. You need to try the other ways and benefit from them. I am introducing through these lessons to my brother readers audio- memorizing way through listening to recorded recited Quran. This way has advantages that we have mentioned some of them. The important one is that it does not require a teacher, a place or time, but an open way.At the beginning, some readers may not be familiar to this way; nonetheless, after some time they will feel great pleasure and sweetness. In fact, they will interact with listening to the Quran until they find themselves weeping from Allah-fearing whenever they listened to the Quran. Does memorizing the Quran way need a teacher or a sheikh?I can tell you beloved brother about my experience in memorizing which was without a teacher. I was depending on listening to the Quran only and that made the memorizing process easy. By doing so, I was not bound by a definite date or place for memorizing, but all times and places were open. This helped me to utilize every minute of my time.However, there is a belief among many or all scholars emphasizing the necessity of the presence of a teacher for memorizing, and you cannot memorize anything without a teacher. Besides, you cannot master the rules of recital if there is not someone to listen to you and correct them for you.I say this is half correct. It is correct that a believer is in need of a good example and someone to correct his mistakes. It is not correct that I make all my dependence on the teacher. If it is easy to find a teacher who keeps by heart the Book of Allah Almighty that will be a good thing, but if the circumstances of the one who wants to memorize the Quran are not suitable to follow Quran classes, should he quit the Quran and forget?Thus, you can depend on yourself and Allah first in memorizing and trying imitating what you listen to on cassettes and even trying to record your voice while reciting the Quran. Then, you listen to it and try find out your mistakes by yourself.Then, whenever you avail a suitable chance to meet a memorizing teacher, you may show him what you have memorized and ask him to correct your recital mistakes. However, language mistakes must not happen, because when you listen to a reciter from a cassette, you are listening to a correct reciting. You should listen very carefully and pick every sound vibration and try to echo it. Here forth, we realize the meaning of Almighty saying, "When the Qur'an is read, listen to it with attention, and hold your peace: that ye may receive Mercy." [ Al-A'raf: The Heights: 204] You must check and think of every letter the reader pronounce. It is preferable to utilize all your feelings and interact with the Quran and its concepts. How can Neuro Linguistic Programming help in memorizing the Quran?We may make use of the sciences of this age and utilize what has western scholars have discovered to serve the Book of Allah Almighty. They use concentration and self con[...]

Innovative Way to Memorize the Quran -2


There are some questions that we have received after the first lesson from this educational series, and we should answer them before showing the second lesson in memorizing the Quran.….From these questions: How can the recited Quran be listened to? Should we listen to a whole Surah several times a day? And what are the suitable times for listening to the Quran?How can the recited Quran be listened to? You should know my brother believers that all times are suitable for listening to the Quran. The believer mentions Allah in all times, standing, sitting, lying down on his side, before going to bed, at awakening, when at work, when walking on the street and when are among friends and family. The believer mentions Allah in all times and so listening to the Quran does not have a specific time. However, those who want to memorize should listen to recited Quran whenever it is possible. Almighty says, "Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides" [Al- 'Imran: The Family of 'Imran: 191]Should we listen to a whole Surah several times a day? I prefer to repeat listening to the same Surah several times every day until its words become familiar to the listener. For example, if you want to memorize An-Naml (The Ant) Surah, you have to listen to this Surah in a voice of one of those who recite it for several times in a period of several days. Then, the memorization process will be very easy after that. I have followed that and it was fruitful. I have memorized the Quran without exerting any great effort because I was listening to the Quran.What is the perfect time to memorize the whole Quran?We should know that the Great Apostle (pbuh) memorized the Quran in 23 years!!! The period the Quran was revealed. From the Prophet sayings, there is no specific time for memorization, but my brother reader, you can memorize what may Allah avails for you from His Book and you determine firmly to complete memorization.Do not feel disinterested if suitable circumstances were not available. You only need to ask Allah Almighty to furnish you the suitable circumstances and He may answer your supplication. You may be able to memorize in a month and it may take years, but I think the right period for who likes to set a time table is one year or two years.Finally, the left question is around my experience in memorizing the Quran and how much time did it take me to keep by heart the Book of Allah Almighty? In fact, I did not think at all during my memorization process of time or how much I memorized. However, my concern was pleasing Allah Almighty, and I was always saying I need the big rewards and proximity to Allah Almighty. I used to know that a believer may memorize “Say: He is Allah, the One and Only” Surah and he will be at the top in front of Allah because of his devotion and sincerity with Allah. This is what makes the believer the best memorizer of Allah’s Book because Allah will assist him to memorize.But, whoever memorizes the Quran to boast and gain a certificate to show to people, his rewards will be little even if he memorized the whole Quran. Maybe, all of us know about the man who will be used to fuel Hell on the Day of Resurrection, a man who kept the Quran by heart and read it to be called a reader, a man who takes pride in memorizing in front of people and not for the sake of Allah. This person got his rewards in this World and does have anything in the Hereafter. Therefore, I always say dear brother and sister: Little memorization with sincerity is much better than much without devotion. How should I memorize a Surah from the Quran?The new way depends on three stages: Listening to recited Quran stage Stage of understanding, managing and deep-thinking of the speech we heard Stage of establishing memorization from the Book Listening to recited Quran stageWe have mentioned in the first lesson of this educational series the importance of listening to the Quran. It has a great impac[...]

Innovative Way to Memorize the Quran -1


There are questions that you have to answer before you start memorizing the Quran, so that your project is fruitful if Allah will. Everyone has his own projects in life, but the best work will be memorizing the Book of Allah Almighty.….A Project for this World and the HereafterAt the beginning, you have to plan well for this project that will change your life totally as it did to those who memorized the Quran before you. Perfect planning requires you to study it well, study its benefits and results, and study the shortest way to execute it. Without that, the project will be unproductive, and this is the reason that many of those who try to memorize the Quran fail.Why do I memorize the Quran?This is a question you should ask yourself, and you should have a clear answer to it in your mind, why should one memorize the Quran? Whenever the benefits of this work are more, your determination will be higher and you will achieve your goal easily. What are the benefits of memorizing the Quran?Benefits of memorizing the QuranSince the Quran is the word of Allah Almighty, when you memorize it , this will be the best you ever done! Memorizing the Quran will open all the doors of good for you. Memorizing the Quran means that you will obtain ten good deeds for each letter! If you know, for example that the number of letters in the shortest Surah in the Quran, which is Surah Al-Kawthar, is 42 letters. This Surah can be read in seconds, which means that whenever you read it, your account at Allah Almighty will increase to 420 good deeds, each one of these good deeds is much better than this World and what is in it!! Consider how many good deeds you will gain when you read the whole Quran which includes more than three hundred thousand letters!! The Quran includes all the sciences of this World and the Hereafter, the stories of ancestors and successors. It includes many of the scientific, cosmic, legislative and medical facts, and it includes also provisions, laws and legislation that regulate the life of a believer and make him much happier. This means that when you memorize the Quran, you memorize the largest encyclopedia. This Quran, which you memorize and keep today, will be your companion at the dying moment!! It will be your defender and your intercessor at the time you are abandoned by the nearest people. The Prophet (pbuh) says, "Read the Quran, it will be the intercessor of its companions on the Day of Resurrection" Will there be a best moment other than the one when meeting on the Day of Resurrection with Allah Almighty and you have memorized His words. When you memorize the Quran, your expressing ability will be stronger because of the classic Arabic you acquire from the Quran. You will have more ability for dealing, endurance and patience, because memorizing the Quran is not only like memorizing a poem, a story, or a song. However, when you memorize the Quran, in fact you are changing your attitude towards everything around you, and thus your behavior will be following what you have memorizedOur Lady Aysha (May Allah be pleased with her) was asked about the ethics of the Prophet and she said, "His ethics was the Quran"!! If you would like your ethics be like the Prophet's (pbuh), you have to memorize the Quran. The Quran is a healing for physical and psychological diseases. If reading Al-Fatiha (The Opening) cures a patient if Allah permits, what about who memorize the whole Quran? You will get rid of devilish whispers; your body immunity will increase due to the great change you experience while you are memorizing the Quran. This is not only a theoretical speech but a real experience that is witnessed by those who memorized the Quran or parts of it. When you decide to memorize the Quran, you won't have extra time, boredom, nor a feeling of concern, stress and fear. The Quran will remove concerns, grief and the accumulations of the past, you will be reborned. Nonetheless, what prevent us f[...]

Scientists say that believing in God is very necessary for man


All studies disprove atheists' thoughts, in this very recent study , scientists emphasize that religion helps man in happiness, existence and optimism ….A group of scientists from the British University of Columbia emphasize, through a chain of scientific researches, that there is no life on earth without the existence of religion. Religion was and is still a must for man's existence within regulated societies. They have reached this conclusion after careful examining of the conditions of a group of atheists and comparing them with the conditions of a group of God believers.They have discovered that believing in the existence of "A Creator "for this universe helps man to live a better social life. Former studies have stressed that theism facilitates the curing of some chronic diseases as well as some psychiatric illnesses such as depression and despair.Likewise, this study shows that belief makes man generous and ready to help other people and sacrifice for them. The study is purely scientific ,objective and unconnected with religious motivations.The study has taken about 30 years, where hundreds of cases have been examined .Researchershave discovered that practising believers are of more aptitudes to respond to their communities in comparison with non-believers. Professor Norenzayan , a specialist in Psychology Department , Columbia University, says: " we try to reach to the scientific proof of the religious influence on the humans behavior ; religion has enabled people to live in groups . To a great deal, religion may have prevented man's extinction in some age of the past ages ".Researchers show that religion increases confidence in other people, reduces worry and prevents man from being a deceiver. Religion has played a major role in the evolution of the human communities overcoming all the obstacles threatening their continuity. Faith makes man happier, more optimistic and not afraid of death unlike non-believers who live in misery and pessimism. The Koran includes and emphasizes these facts: Allah, the only creator of everything, promises every truthful believer to have true happy life. Allah says". which is translated as : (when every believer ,whether a male or a female ,does good deeds, We (Allah) guarantees happy life for him \ her rewarding them for their best acts) (al-Nahel 97 ). As a result for believing in Allah believers live with much more relief and security than the disbelievers . I myself have found out great differences between two groups of believers and disbelievers, where they both have been asked to fill in a detailed questionnaire . Atheists always suffer worrying and instability that are manifested in their reactions , excitements and even in their way of responding to my questions , while believers haven't any kind of worry or frustration thanking Allah in all situations whether good or bad. Also, I have found out that whenever man's belief , certitude and trust in Allah increase, his happiness increases and he becomes immune to depression. --------------------By: Abduldaem References: Religion makes people helpful and generous -- under certain conditions: UBC researchers,[...]

American researcher has discovered that while praying, the brain re-programs itself


The researcher studied what happens to the brain while praying; its activity, sanity, and performance. He found out that the 'non-Islamic' praying has continuous effects on the brain. So, what if we conduct the same experiment on a Muslim person while praying, praising Allah and in a state of humility? Praying is considered healing of the soul and the body. We believe in this [spiritual] fact, but some may feel skeptic; claiming that it is [just] a surrender, humiliation and seizing of freedom. To this end, we will work our minds in a study conducted by one of Western scholars about the impact of praying on the brain's [activity] and health. It should be noted that the study was not conducted on the Islamic praying, and if it was made on Muslims, then results would be breathtaking.Some scientists who examined the impact of meditation on the minds of Buddhist monks found that there are active parts in the brain become inactive in the state of meditation, while other inactive parts before the start of the meditation become active. In an article published by the BBC News website, Andrew Nioberg, a radiologist at the University of Pennsylvania, United States, said: "I believe that we are about to experience a wonderful time in our history, when we become able to explore religions and spiritual matters through a way, none has thought of its possibility before."Dr. Newberg and his team studied a group of Buddhist monks in the Tibet while practicing meditation for about an hour, using brain imaging techniques. He asked the monks to draw a thread with their hands when they reach the highest state of meditation, through this process a small amount of radioactive material is injected into their blood that can be traced in the brain. This radioactive material enables the scientists to see the tincture as it moves to the active areas in the brains. After the monks are done with the meditation, a re-imaging of the brains was conducted, and then comparing the situation of the normal state and the one of meditation were then possible. The images showed important signals about what is happening in the brain during the meditation. Dr. Newberg explains what happened; saying that the pictures showed "activity increase in the frontal lobe which is the front of the brain, a region that becomes active in [any] human being when one wants to focus on a particular activity", while the Parietal lobe, which is the back of the brain, showed a significant decrease in activity of the Parietal lobe and it is responsible for one's sense of place. This confirms the saying that meditation leads to losing the sense of place. Dr. Newberg commitment: "During meditation, people lose their feelings of themselves, and really feel losing the sense of place and time, and this was exactly what we saw."The Power of Praying Also, similar complex interactions happen between different areas of the brain during meditation with the ones that occur during the so-called spiritual or mystical experiences. Previous studies led by dr. Newberg conducted on the brain's activity of Franciscan nuns while praying known as "focus" praying. Truth is, the verbal part of the prayer activates parts of the brain, but dr. Newberg found out that "it activates the area of attention in the brain, and reduced the activity of the one responsible for the sense of place."This is not the first time scientists examine spiritual matters. In 1998, the importance of therapeutic praying emerged when scientists in the United States studied a group of heart disease patients. They found out an un precedent result, they suffer fewer complications after a short time of praying. Brain imaging has opened vast prospects to study new subjects. This image is taken by a new brain imaging technique, SPECT or Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography, during the normal state (left) and during the meditation one (right).[...]

The receding of the Aral Sea: when we change the natural system


When human plays with the nature which was created in a precise system by Allah, as a result, that system will be disturbed in the form of disasters and drought…God be He exalted and blessed created the earth in a balanced system, and one of the great verses is: (And it is He who has let free the two seas (kinds of water): this is palatable and sweet, and that is salt and bitter; and He has set a barrier and a complete partition between them) (Sûrat Al-Furqân- verse 53).Somebody may think that this verse is only to remind us with the graces of Allah, or as a scientific fact which was mentioned by the Qur'an before the modern science. But this verse is considered to be a good reminder with the importance of the area of "mouth of the river in the sea".So, the holy verse refers to God's creation of that system to ensure a happy life for us, and to continue the movement of life and to continue the seas and rivers. But the human broke this rule and converted mouths of rivers from into the seas in order to supply the water to the Farmlands as human believed that that work is right…therefore what happened?. Seas and rivers started to disappear!!That is what happened with the Aral Sea one the world's fourth largest inland body of water. It started to recede and to drought. Look at the following satellite photo. A satellite photo which was taken (in 2009) by the European space agency shows the boundary of the Aral sea "in green color", and at the top in the square another taken photo (in 2005) as the sea was much larger than today….look at what the human made by the different wrong activities which polluted the environment. The source: ESA We remember the following holy verse when we see that photo as God says :( Say (O Muhammad): "Tell me! If (all) your water were to sink away, who then can supply you with flowing (spring) water?")(Sûrat Al-Mulk- verse 30). Glory to Allah! If the scientists know that holy verse and they were aware about the importance of the area of the mouth where rivers meet with seas …this tragedy wouldn't happen. As we see a whole sea to disappear and to drought. Human prevented to feeding that sea by the two rivers which were used to supply it for thousands of years without any disorder, but now this area is suffering from strong Sand storms and huge environmental pollution!! Some researchers made a suggestion to retransfer the Downstream of the river to the sea with a huge cost that is up to millions of dollars! Glory to Allah what might happen if they left God's system without any intervention? Also the environmental changes are caused by the wrong behavior of human by throwing dirt and by the excess luxury in everything…which caused rivers to drought. As all small rivers became drought in the last few years, the big rivers will be the same. We can remember the holy Hadith by prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him) when he told us about a sign for the imminence of the day of resurrection when he told us that one of these signs is the drought of the Euphrates River. Indeed, the amount of water in that river became too little and the river started to recede and the coming years will show us more and more receding for that river because of the drought and the global warming phenomenon. Here we can ask a Question, who told prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him) that the Euphrates River will recede? Or how could he know that the area of the meeting of rivers and seas is important? Allah almighty told him all of these unseen facts to be a proof that he is sincere. --------------------By: Abduldaem References: 1. [...]

The earth is speaking!


Do you believe that earth transmits continuous sound frequencies but we don't hear it? That is the most recent discovery in the earth science. What did the Qur'an say about that?…."Earth speaks" I found this title in one of the international websites which is , in fact that title is an ordinary title in this era because scientists had discovered that every thing in the universe transmit sound frequencies. But at the time of the descending of the Qur'an that matter wasn't known at all as human at that time didn't imagine that earth is transmitting vibrations, but the Qur'an told us about that issue in many verses which were explained by many explainers that Allah almighty gave earth the ability to speak so it became able to speak. God says :( Then He rose over (Istawâ) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: "Come both of you willingly or unwillingly." They both said: "We come willingly.")(Sûrat Fussilat- verse 11) also God says about the Pharaoh and his chiefs after He be blessed and exalted drown them :( And the heavens and the earth wept not for them nor were they given a respite.)(Sûrat Ad-Dukhân- verse 29). If we read saying of the explainers we can see that they believed in the ability of earth and heaven to speak in a real voice and also in their ability to cry. One of the most important space websites which is had published an article with a title "sky is speaking". Mark Whittle, an astronomer at the University of Virginia found that universe in its early beginning was transmitting sound frequencies which were caused by the sudden expansion of the gases, the Qur'an told us about that in the holy verse: (Then He rose over (Istawâ) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: "Come both of you willingly or unwillingly." They both said: "We come willingly.")(Sûrat Fussilat- verse 11).The scientists had discovered that these frequencies are in the InaudibleRange and it has an important mission. As earth transmit frequencies in a range less than 20 hertz (less than 20 vibrations in second) before earthquakes, volcanoes and before the tsunami phenomenon. In 2004when the tsunami hit beaches of Indonesia which caused hundreds of thousands of casualties, and before it occurs dogs run away and elephants in the zoo started to grumble and shout , scientists explained that as the animals hear these vibrations and felt with fear. The scientists found that the elephants talk with each other in an inaudible voice also whales speak in these frequencies which spread through the water for thousands of kilometers! By the use of these frequencies, scientists are attempting to make an early detection for earthquakes and natural disasters. Before the occurrence of volcanoes and earthquakes to be as a warning for animals to run away from the area of disaster, also God supported these animals with systems to hear these frequencies and to analyze it to take the necessary action , but the arrogant human till now didn't invent such system to predict with earthquakes and volcanoes. Glory to Allah!Look how God be He exalted had exploited every thing for us, He says :( And has subjected to you all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth; it is all as a favor and kindness from Him. Verily, in it are signs for a people who think deeply.)(Sûrat Al-Jâthiyah-verse13).Many thanks to Allah for all of these graces.--------------------By: Abduldaem References: An article with a title:" Earth speaks in an Inaudible Voice" on 08.02.2007 An article with a title" Primal Scream: The Infant Universe Speaks" The explanation of Al- Qurtubi for the verse [Then He rose [...]

The Memory of Zamzam’s Water


Science, at a very later stage, reveals new secrets about Zamzam’s water and the way it is influenced by the verses of the Glorious Quran. Read more on the subject…….Allah, the Almighty has mentioned the word “water” several dozens times in His Great Divine Book; the Glorious Quran. What we are interested here is the latest discovery of the Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto concerning “water’s memory”, and that water stores inside its memory all the events that take place around it! Masaru Emoto performed the first of its kind, pioneering experiments on water. He experimented with few drops of water which he put under various sound frequencies. He noticed that the water particles arrangement differs upon changing the frequency! Perhaps the final experiment Dr. Masaru Emoto did was on Zamzam’s water which he subjected to a stiff and fastidious test. He found out that this water is different than any other type of water on the globe. Interestingly, he noticed that this water has a special interaction and reaction with the Words of Allah, the Almighty; the Glorious Quran recitation on it. This is a photo of Zamzam water gushing through the rocks. Zamzam water still gush non-stop since thousands of years. This is rather an amazing behavior. Where does Zamzam water come from, while in this barren land of a desert? Does this phenomenon require our deep meditation and thinking? Perhaps we can comprehend now why it is preferable and encouraged to recite [i.e. verses from the Glorious Quran] on water with the hope to cure the patient! Water is the only element in the nature that is distinct in nature than all other elements due to its physical and chemical properties that makes it unanimously, the “Master” of all other elements in the nature.Emoto brought few drops of Zamzam’s water and recited the “Basmaleh” [In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, Most Merciful] in Arabic and noticed that the arrangement of the water particles became prettier! In fact, these drops of water formed unique shapes as if they were drawn by a fantastically skilled artist.Download free PDF in two languages, Arabic & English (400 Kb)--------------------By: Abduldaem References: 1. www.masaru-emoto.net2.

As if he is climbing up to the sky


In this article we will see one of God's signs which refer to a new discovered scientific fact. Let us read ….It was a human dream to climb up to the sky and there were many tries to do that from thousands of years, but all of them were ended by failure till the twenty century when human was able to study layers of the air and to uses that knowledge to fly and invade the space. In a scientific way, the scientists started at the beginning of the twenty century to study the structure of the atmosphere and they proved that it consists of oxygen and nitrogen. The oxygen represents 21%of the air, the nitrogen is 78% and the other gases like carbon and water vapor are 1% of the air. Any disturbance in these ratios will eliminate life on earth. But God's mercy had determined these ratios without any changes except in small ratios. Therefore God be He exalted made the sky as a roof to save and keep us from harmful objects in the space and also from the transmitted harmful rays from the sun.Gravity and density laws "which were exploited by God to serve us" are dividing the atmosphere to many layers, each layer has its characteristics and benefits. So the law of gravity holds the earth by the atmosphere during its turning. That atmosphere is attached to the earth despite the millions of years. Concerning the density law, the scientists had discovered that the heavy liquids goes down and the lighter goes up so when we mix oil with water in a cup, the oil became on the top and the water in the bottom because oil is lighter than the water. The same is applying for gases ,as the light gas goes up and the heavy one goes down, that is what happens in the atmosphere , the air which is near to the earth ground is heavier than the air in the top layered………….Hence, the air pressure, density and weight are gradually arranged till we reach the top layer of the atmosphere where there is no air or pressure. The diminution of oxygen in the upper layers of the sky is a known scientific fact. So that we see mountains climbers put containers which are full of oxygen on their shoulders to breath with it while climbing because oxygen decreases at the tops of the mountains. A satellite photo for Himalayas which are the world's highest peaks, scientists found that the oxygen decrease when we goes up till we reach a point where there is no oxygen. The first feeling when human ascends to a higher place is dyspnea and constriction in the lungs till he suffocates and dies. This scientific fact was unknown at the time of the descending of the Qur'an as no one at that time knew anything about what is called oxygen also no one knew that when we goes up oxygen decreases.But the holy Qur'an described this scientific fact precisely when God be He exalted described the strayed man who is far from his God as if a human who is living in the upper layers of the atmosphere as he can't breath and always feels with dyspnea and constriction in the lungs till he reaches the maximum point where he is going to die. God says :( and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky)(Sûrat Al-An’âm- verse 125). God gave human two lungs and exploited the air in the atmosphere to him; also He descended the Qur'an with orders of happiness in the world and in the hereafter. So if the human is far from these orders, he will be as if he is ascending to the upper layers of the atmosphere where there is no air so his breast will be closed and he will suffer in his life till he dies. God be He exalted told us about this scientific fact from hundreds of years in concise and few words as He says:(He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky). Who tol[...]

The Burning Sea


There are some facts which testify that Allah who descended the Qur'an is great, He be blessed and exalted told us about a burning sea and He swear by it, today the scientists show as some photos for that scene in the deep sea….The earth fractures extend to cover seas and oceans, in the deep seas there are fractures where the molten fluid is leaking through it from the bottom of the earth. The modern science discovered these fissures where the molten lava is flowing out in the water for hundreds of meters that scene looks like a sea which is burning. The Qur'an told us about that scene when God says :( And by the sea kept filled (or it will be fire kindled on the Day of Resurrection) (Sûrat at-Tûr- verse 6).Fourteen century ago, there were many myths and superstitions. Therefore, if the Qur'an was a human made, we may find some of these myths and superstitions in it. But the Qur'an is free of any of them which indicate that it is a divine book. But the question is, what is the purpose of these fractures and how can it benefit the earth? The answer is that without these fractures and if the earth is one block, the heat and pressure will be kept inside it which will cause the earth crust to smash and the life to end. So, we can say that these fractures work as holes for the earth to breath, in another word we can say it works as a safety valve to keep the earth stable and balanced. The burning sea became a reality as we can see the molten lava in the deep oceans and seas while flowing and heating the bottom of the oceans till it freezes to form the mountains in the seas and oceans which form the volcanic islands. At the time of the descending of Qur'an no one knew that fact, who told prophet Mohamed about that? He is Allah Almighty who know the secrets and knows everything, also He says about the burning seas: (And when the seas become as blazing Fire or overflow.)(Sûrat at-Takwîr- verse 6). After that the day of resurrection will come when the seas will explode, God says :( And when the seas are burst forth) (Sûrat Al-Infitâr- verse 3).Here we can see how the Qur'an use the scientific facts to talk about future events as we see the seas are now burning in a limited way but at the day of resurrection all of them will burn and explode which is an evidence that day of resurrection will definitely occur. Now we are going to demonstrate some photos for the burning seas. Glory to Allah!! Flowing molten lava in the bottom of the sea, we can see that it heats the water; therefore it is a burning sea as God said. A real photo for the burning sea which was discovered after 14 century, that scene confirms the sincerity of the Qur'an which is the opposite of what the atheists say. After the molten lava accumulates, the volcanic islands are formed. Scientists confirm that at the bottom of all seas there are fissures where the molten lava are flowing out, this phenomenon is terrifying so that God swear by it that His torment will occur, God says :( And by the sea kept filled (or it will be fire kindled on the Day of Resurrection) * Verily, the Torment of your Lord will surely come to pass * There is none that can avert it.)(Sûrat at-Tûr– verse 6-8). Let us read the full text :( By the Tûr (Mount)* And by a Book Inscribed *In parchment unrolled* And by Al-Bait-ul-Ma‘mûr (the house over the heavens parallel to the Ka‘bah at Makkah, continuously visited by the angels)*And by the roof raised high (i.e. the heaven) *And by the sea kept filled (or it will be fire kindled on the Day of Resurrection)*Verily, the Torment of your Lord will surely come to pass* There is none that can avert it.) (Sûrat at-Tûr–verse 1-8).--------------------By: Abduldaem Al-Kaheelwww.kahe[...]

The balance in environment


Here are some facts about the environmental balance and how the Qur'an told us about these facts which testify that Allah almighty is the Great God, let us read….Nowadays, people are concerned about the environment and the scientists realized the importance of the environmental balance and its effect on the life of all creatures (plants, animals, human) especially after the huge excreted amount of Pollutants in the twenty century. Many decades ago, there were no pollution but in the last few years number of factories increased also the transportation methods increased which produces large amount of contaminated materials which causes dangerous diseases such as cancer.That pollution had affected the aquatic organisms like fish also animals and plants. But God with His mercy put many filtration methods in these plants to purify the air from the poisoned materials. As we know, the plant absorbs the carbon Gas and it releases the oxygen which helps human in breathing. The most strange thing is that amount of plants on earth is suitable for the size of the atmosphere. There is an accurate balance between what the human gets from oxygen and between the amounts of released oxygen by plants. There is another balance between the released amount of carbon gas by human and the amount of carbon taken by the plants. Glory to Allah, the Qur'an told us about such environmental balance in a time when no one knows anything about the environment or the balance. God says: (And the earth we have spread out, and have placed therein firm mountains, and caused to grow therein all kinds of things in due proportion.)(Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 19). Look at the preciseness of the words of the Qur'an as God be He blessed and exalted tells us that all kinds of things are in due proportion. For example the oxygen in the air is 21%, this percentage if it is more than that the earth may burn from the first spark and if it is less than that all creatures will suffocates. Also the carbon gas is less than 1%, if the percentage is more than that, human will die and if it is less than that percentage all plants will die and life will stop. If we go inside a cell of any green plant we can see a continuous manufacturing operation for the green material which produces grains and fruits. The Qur'an told us about these operations, God says :( It is He Who sends down water (rain) from the sky, and with it We bring forth vegetation of all kinds, and out of it We bring forth green stalks, from which We bring forth thick clustered grain. And out of the date-palm and its spathe come forth clusters of dates hanging low and near, and gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates, each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety and taste). Look at their fruits when they begin to bear, and the ripeness thereof. Verily! In these things there are signs for people who believe)(Sûrat Al-An’âm- verse 99).The Qur'an told us that the green material is formed first then the grains and fruits get out of the plants, that was confirmed by the modern science. Every drop of water testifies that the creator is great, Allah almighty who created every thing in due proportion, any imbalance in life will cause a definite end of the world. Now we are living in the era of unbalancing as we hear about what is called the global warming We ask our God to save us from the evil of the environmental changes. Hence, we ask a question, did prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him) study the plants and did he examine it under the microscopes? What makes that illiterate man to speak about these scientific issues? The answer is because he got all of his knowledge from God be He blessed and exalted who tough him every thing[...]

The sea foam


It is nice and strange phenomenon, as the sea foam may form a huge amount of scum which extends to tens of kilometers; let us see these photos ….This is a photo of the sea foam which is a complicated phenomenon and it happens in all seas due to the strong mixing of Impurities, organic materials, salts, dead plants and rotting fish in the sea…. Which form light foam but it extends to about fifty kilometer. The scientists explain this phenomenon like putting milk in the mixer to form foam. But it disappears in the air, and whenever the movement of the waves became heavier the amount of the foam became larger. Here are some scientific facts about the foam:Foam forms only during the fast movement of water which caused by a hurricane or strong floods. It forms on the top surface of the water. Weight of the foam is very light so it evaporates like vapor. A small amount of water forms a large amount of foam, which means the foam has no weight or value. The Qur'an told us about this phenomenon in a great verse, God says: (He sends down water (rain) from the sky, and the valleys flow according to their measure, but the flood bears away the foam that mounts up to the surface - and (also) from that (ore) which they heat in the fire in order to make ornaments or utensils, rises a foam like unto it, thus does Allah (by parables) show forth truth and falsehood. Then, as for the foam it passes away as scum upon the banks, while that which is for the good of mankind remains in the earth. Thus Allah sets forth parables (for the truth and falsehood, i.e. Belief and disbelief).)(Sûrat Ar-Ra‘d- verse 17).if we study this verse we can find that it is compatible with the scientific facts:The verse describes the way of forming the foam by the flooding of water through valleys in a strong and fast movement so God says:(and the valleys flow according to their measure, but the flood bears away the foam that mounts up to the surface), look at the word (mounts up) which describes the real action when the foam mounts up on the surface of the water. The verse talks about a known Physical law which is law of density where we find the heavier material goes down and the lighter material goes up, this operation can be accelerated by heating as we see in steel factories when they start to heat the steel to high temperatures so that impurities moves up to form the foam which is discharged through special holes. Then the pure iron is gathered in the bottom. This characteristic applies to all materials in the nature. The Qur'an referred to this operation in (and (also) from that (ore) which they heat in the fire in order to make ornaments or utensils, rises a foam like unto it) if we study forming of foam in seas and forming of it in steel factories we will find that the same physical operations happen in both of them. That precise description couldn't be mentioned by illiterate man who got no knowledge about seas or manufacturing of steel. God says:(Then, as for the foam it passes away as scum upon the banks), the scientists say that the foam goes away by a little air because it is just some bubbles or a little scum , so the koranic expression is true. Sea and sins foam Prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him) used a precise expression when he called the big sins as the foam. He said (who says: Glory and Praise be to Allah for one hundred times his / her sins will be erased even if they are like the sea foam) ,the prophet used the previous expression to tell us that our big sins can be easily erased like the sea foam by just repeating the name of Allah! --------------------By: Abduldaem References:[...]

Earth surrounded by bubbles


The existence of fizzy bubbles around the atmosphere is an amazing phenomenon as the temperature of these bubbles is up to ten millions degree centigrade. Why did Allah exploit it?….The CNN website had published scientific news that the astronomers discovered huge explosions in the atmosphere around the earth, because of the explosion of giant bubbles of a very hot air which ascends and grow in size then it explode in the space around the earth. Astronomers had found that this activity occur when the magnetic field of the earth meets a constant stream of particles flowing out from the sun. The scientists call these bubbles "density holes" In them; gas density is 10 times lower. The gas in the bubbles is 18,000,000 Fahrenheit (10,000,000 Celsius) instead of the 180,000 degrees Fahrenheit of the surrounding hot gas, which is known as plasma. Scientists started to study these bubbles by a research team from the European space agency, the mission of that team called "cluster" which consisted of four space crafts. Concerning the temperature of these bubbles the team thought there is something wrong with their machines and gauges but George Parks from university of Californian said "Then I looked at the data from all four Cluster spacecraft. These anomalies were being observed simultaneously by all the spacecraft. That's when I believed that they were real". Prof. Parks and his colleagues say that these bubbles extend to1000 kilometer and it last for ten seconds before it explodes. The scientists don't know exactly the reason and the way of forming these bubbles but they think that it is formed by the collision of solar winds with the magnetic field around the earth, they calls this phenomenon "the bow shock". This phenomenon is similar to the wake formed by the front of a boat. That discovery may help the researchers in "the physics of plasma".Here we can ask ourselves, why did Allah put these bubbles around the earth? Scientists say that any phenomenon in the universe should have a purpose and target but that is despite their belief that universe came by coincidence!!! But as a Muslims, we possess the greatest book on earth, we believe that God had created the earth and fit it for life, as He be blessed and exalted had created not only the atmosphere but also a very strong magnetic field and He added and exploited in addition bubbles to explode and to heat around the atmosphere to keep us and to be as a barrier between us and the killing solar winds. Scientists say that the coming solar winds toward the earth may burn this planet!! But it's the mercy of Allah to provide our planet with different methods of protections to save and keep our atmosphere as He be blessed made it as a roof over our heads. Here we can understand God's saying: (And we have made the heaven a roof, safe and well guarded. Yet they turn away from its signs (i.e. sun, moon, winds, clouds, etc.).)(Sûrat Al-Anbiyâ’- verse 32). Glory to Allah as He said (And we have made the heaven a roof) as the atmosphere around us needs the power of God to save us not its own power because no creature has any power but the power of Allah , don't we have to thank Allah for His graces? (And if you count the Blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them. Verily, man is indeed an extreme wrong-doer, a disbeliever) (Sûrat Ibrâhîm- verse34).--------------------By: Abduldaem Reference: CNN[...]

The atmosphere falls on earth


Do you know what the weight of the atmosphere is? Can it fall on earth? What makes it stable and attached to earth? It is the gravity and also the sickness of the atmosphere ….My dear, to understand the word of "sky" which is mentioned in the Qur'an, we have to know that the atmosphere is our sky. In the Arabic language "anything above you is your sky", it contain clouds which are the source of rains, God says :( And we sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure, and we gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, we are Able to take it away.)(Sûrat Al-Mu’minûn- verse 18).The sky(Heaven) extend to billions of light years and all seen galaxies and cosmic dust are in the heaven of the world, but the Qur'an told us about the possibility that the sky falls down on our heads. At the time of the descending of Qur'an no one got the knowledge that the atmosphere is so heavy and no one knew that the elimination of that atmosphere may cause many dangers. The Qur'an told us about this reality in a great verse when Allah reminds us with his graces and how He Almighty keeps that cover from elimination. At the time of the descending of the Qur'an no one knew that the air has a weight and if we calculated that weight we can find that it is up to 5 billion billion kilograms! Therefore the atmosphere which is our sky is so heavy. Imagine, what may happen if a stone to weigh 5 billion billion kilograms fall down on earth? The one who holds that atmosphere is Allah as He exploited the rules by his unlimited power, for example if the density of the atmosphere is less than it is ,so it may evaporates and run away in the space and if gravity is less than it is the earth may not be able to hold the atmosphere. Hence Allah almighty selected the right size and weight for earth to keep the atmosphere tenacious. Because of that we can understand the holy verse :( He withholds the heaven from falling on the earth except by His Leave. Verily, Allah is, for mankind, Full of Kindness, Most Merciful)(Sûrat Al-Hajj- verse 65). We can understand this verse in two ways with no contradiction between science and Qur'an:1. If we understand the sky (Heaven) as the atmosphere it will be right, as Allah keeps it from falling on us by His power as if it did the life will be terminated. 2. If we understand that the sky (Heaven) is the outer space it will be right as the collision of any space rocks or meteors will cause a destructive disaster. The scientists say that the possibility of any object to collide with the earth is so high, but the power of Allah almighty keeps our earth from the outer dangers and the inner dangers. We can only say, thanks God for your graces: (Verily, Allah is, for mankind, Full of Kindness, Most Merciful.) (Sûrat Al-Hajj- verse 65).--------------------By: Abduldaem References:[...]

The day that will make the –newborn hoary- headed


Recent scientific researches prove that great pressures affect the hair of the head by making it white-haired, the thing that is mentioned in the Holy Quran when talking on judgment day horribleness ….It is a so horrible day which we are unaware of, which the Quran talked about, it is the judgment day. It is the most important day in every human’s life, the day where he/she will see many horrible and pressures, no mountain could bear them, for it is a great day when Almighty Allah becomes angry and He will punish all guilty and arrogant. The Holy Quran has described the judgment day with many descriptions, such as the day that will make the –newborn hoary- headed, Allah said: (So, in case you disbelieve, how will you protect yourselves against a Day that will make the- newborn hoary-headed?) [Al-Muzzamil: 17]. This Quranic verse indicates the horribleness of the judgment day which will make the – newborn hoary- headed because of the great pressure and horribleness.One dare says: this Quranic verse is just to assimilate how is the judgment day will be dangerous and harsh, in contrast the recent researches proves that the great pressure will cause white-haired! Thus the white hair refers to the psychological pressure.Scientists in Japan have discovered the connection between the white hair and the hard circumstances and the psychological pressure. They go on saying that when someone goes under these circumstances, the responsible stem cell of providing the true color to the hair follicles will be exposed to damage, the thing which causes white hair.Imagine, my dear reader, how is the pressure that every one will face in the judgment day, it is the greatest pressure ever which will damage the cells responsible of providing hair with colors. Hair will be white quickly; indeed the Quraninc verse expresses the impact of the judgment day accurately and scientifically. This is a scientific fact, Daily Telegraph Newspaper reported about Emi Neshemora, a researcher in Kanzawa University in Japan, who led the research team, when she said that the hair follicles could be exposed to a genetic pressure which would damage the DNA in the body. The DNA cells are faced a permanent attack from harmful elements; such as UV and the radius, in the sense that one cell in the mammals may face 100,000 destructive situations which will affect the DNA daily.Neshemora talked about the reason behind the colorless of hair which is the gradual death of the stem cells liable of the melanocytes which provide hair its true and young color. Previous researches over mice proved that the damage which the DNA may suffers, is unfixable for being exposed to the nuclear radiations which cause white hair. Many researches indicates that the alternate gens play a role in senility in general, and losing the stem cells may result in deteriorating renewing the textile the thing that cause senility quickly. In a research in Cells Magazine, the researchers said: “we have discovered in this research that white hair is the clearest sign of senility and the damage of the stem cells responsible of providing the true color to the hair follicles”. Dear reader, we dare say that every single word in Allah’s book is true, moreover it contains a miracle and a scientific sign, and if we study the Quran carefully, we will not find a word which contrasts with the truly scientific facts. We could find a wonderful sign in the Quranic verse where someone says: why the Quran has mentioned the hair of the head especially, while the horribleness of the judgment day affects all the body,[...]

And the mountains He has fixed firmly


The believer needs to look attentively at creatures of God to increase his faith, mountains are wonderful creatures which have many benefits….let us read and see some wonderful photos….Scientists confirm that the mountains are so important to our earth also they are a clear manifest that Allah is the great creator ….also scientists tell us that these mountains have many benefits such as: The mountains contribute in fixing earth crust because its long and deep pegs, God says: (Have we not made the earth as a bed*and the mountains as pegs?)(Sûrat An-Naba’- verse 6-7).It contributes in forming the clouds and pushing winds because of its aerodynamic shape. So, Allah made a clear link between mountains and rains, Allah says: (He has created the heavens without any pillars that you see, and has set on the earth firm mountains lest it should shake with you. And He has scattered therein moving (living) creatures of all kinds. And we send down water (rain) from the sky, and we cause (plants) of every goodly kind to grow therein.)(Sûrat Luqmân- verse 10).Also it contributes in sterilizing and purifying the water because of its different layers, God says: (And have placed therein firm, and tall mountains, and have given you to drink sweet water) (Sûrat Al-Mursalât-verse 27).These mountains are considered to be an important warehouse to store ice as a source of sweet water, God says: (And it is He who spread out the earth, and placed therein firm mountains and rivers) (Sûrat Ar-Ra‘d- verse 3). For thousands of years, the man used these mountains as a place to protect him from wild animals, cold and dangers, God says: (and has made for you places of refuge in the mountains) (Sûrat an-Nahl- verse 81).The mountains contribute in balancing the vegetation cover because its shape and its ability to store water, God says: (And the earth we have spread out, and have placed therein firm mountains, and caused to grow therein all kinds of things in due proportion.)(Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 19).It contributes in affixing the earth ,also its shape allow valleys to formed which enable rivers to flow, God says: (And He has affixed into the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you; and rivers and roads, that you may guide yourselves.) (Sûrat an-Nahl- verse 15).Without mountains, roads wouldn't be existed as a way of communicating people around earth as by studying the history of forming the earth through millions of years , we will see the great importance of the collision of the earth plates which formed the mountains to enable the formation of wide and paved roads which facilitates transportation and moving people through thousands of years. God says: (And we have placed on the earth firm mountains, lest it should shake with them, and we placed therein broad highways for them to pass through, that they may be guided.)(Sûrat Al-Anbiyâ’-verse 31). These mountains are 4418 meter of height, it lies in California in the United States of America, it was formed because the movement and collision of earth plates which caused these high mountains! Any one see the colors of these mountains should remember the divine saying: (and among the mountains are streaks white and red, of varying colors and (others) very black.)(Sûrat Fâtir-verse27). A mountain of basalt in island of Iceland, scientists say that these pillars are identical and it were formed by the lava, also they confirms on the importance of these pillars for life on earth.After all of the above we can un[...]

The lowest point on the earth


In this Article we will study God's saying: (The Romans have been defeated* in a land close by) to realize the greatness of our divine book (Qur'an) and to understand the amazing miracle in this verse...The Qur'an tells us in an era when no man had got the knowledge to measure the lowest point on the surface of earth about a battle between the Romans and the Persians which was ended with a great victory to the Persians on the Romans , God says:( Alif-Lâm-Mîm. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]* The Romans have been defeated.* in a land close by (close by in the original Arabic text is: Adnaa), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious.* within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of the Romans by the Persians, and after the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians)* with the help of Allah. He helps whom He wills, and He is the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful.* (It is) a Promise of Allah (i.e. Allah will give victory to the Romans against the Persians), and Allah fails not in His Promise, but most of men know not.* They know only the outside appearance of the life of the world (i.e. the matters of their livelihood, like irrigating or sowing or reaping, etc.), and they are heedless of the Hereafter.)(Sûrat Ar-Rûm- verse1-7) In this verse there is a determination for the location of the battle which was (in a land close by), so what does it mean? Can we understand it as the nearest land like old explainers or there is another meaning?A trip of scrutinyThe old explainers had explained (in a land close by) as the nearest land (for the Romans to the Arabs) which is the area around the Dead Sea . I concentrated in God's saying about Al-Aqsa Mosque in the city of Jerusalem, It is only 20 kilometer far from the Dead Sea (battle field), He be exalted says:( Glorified (and Exalted) be He (Allah) Who took His slave (Muhammad) for a journey by night from Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (at Makkah) to Al-Masjid-al-Aqsâ (in Jerusalem), the neighborhood whereof We have blessed, in order that We might show him (Muhammad) of Our Ayât (proofs, evidence, lessons, signs, etc.). Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer) (Sûrat Al-Isrâ’- verse 1), here I started to wonder, how did Allah describe the area of the Dead Sea that it is (close by) (close by in the original Arabic text is: Adnaa as the word Adnaa means the nearer) after that God describes the mosque in Jerusalem with (Al-Aqsa) (Al- Aqsa in the original Arabic text means the farther)? After that I started to study the geographical maps of the Battleground where I found that this area is one thousand and two hundred kilometer far from Mecca, so, how the Qur'an described this area with (close by) which was understood as the nearest place where it is in reality 1200 km far from Mecca (where prophet Mohamed and his people were living)?Hence I realized that if Allah means the nearest so why did He used (close by)? A satellite photo for the area of the Dead Sea which is the lowest area on earth, the scientists say that in this place there was a battle between the Romans and the Persians in the seventh century at the time of the message of prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him)Many meanings for the wordAllah be He exalted had created seven heavens and[...]

What is the fate of those who die in outer space


There is an often asked question about the fate of those who die in space flights beyond earth and how they are resurrected in the day of resurrection; through this article we will give a scientific answer to this question….This question was asked by one of our brothers: If man was able to land on other planets of the solar system, how are those who die in outer space or on the moon are resurrected? The answer is in Allah's reply in this verse: (Thereof (the earth) we created you, and into it We shall return you, and from it we shall bring you out once again.) [Taha: 55]. This holly verse affirms that Allah created man from earth's dust and shall return him to the dust again when he dies and then get him out of earth in the day of resurrection to judge upon his deeds and work. Allah also says: (And among His Signs is that the heaven and the earth stand by His Command. Then afterwards when He will call you by a single call, behold, you will come out from the earth (i.e. from your graves for reckoning and recompense) [Al-Rum: 25]. This verse confirms this fact as well, that people will come out of the ground. There is a great verse which indicates that man will die on earth and comes out of it on the day of Resurrection, Allah Almighty says in the story of Adam: (Get down, one of you is an enemy to the other [i.e. Adam, Hawwâ’ (Eve), and Shaitân (Satan)]. On earth will be a dwelling-place for you and an enjoyment for a time*Therein you shall live, and therein you shall die, and from it you shall be brought out (i.e. resurrected).)[Al-Aaraf: 24- 25]. This verse emphasizes three facts: 1. Human's life can only be lived on earth: (Therein you shall live).2. Human will die on earth: (and therein you shall die).3. Allah will bring out the dead and rise them from the ground: (and from it you shall be Brought out).Someone may say: how can the bodies of those who die in space return to earth? We say: outer space contains billions of stones, cosmic dust and other things. All of theses enter through atmosphere when they reach earth, but due to Allah's mercy they fade away and burn. Only little of these enter our earth. Scientists have proved that when a man dies, all his body decays, except a small area called (tailbone), which is located at the bottom of the spine. This small cluster does not perish whatever the circumstances are. One of the scientists conducted a test on (an organic molecules) which is the basic of life. They exposed the material to maximum pressure and temperature but it didn't change at all, they couldn't break it. These materials, indeed, come to earth loaded on meteorites. Scientists have found that falling meteorites on earth contain living organic materials which were not burnt during the friction with the atmosphere in spite of the tremendous heat. Therefore, we say: the remains of those who die in outer space rotate around the earth and eventually, enter the atmosphere and come back to earth. Allah will resurrect these remains again, as we said, the small part (tailbone) remains after death and the decay of the body and from this remain, Allah will bring him back as the Prophet peace be upon him told us about. This picture shows the first man to step on the moon in 1969. He is wearing a special suit to protect him from the sun's deadly rays and to provide him with oxygen. Notice the dry land and the arid desert in the moon. Life cannot begin or continue there; the moon is full of holes, choking lunar dust, mou[...]

The miracle of water


In the following picture we will see how Allah be He exalted drives the water cycle, the Qur'an talked very precisely about these facts…The Qur'an told us in a scientific way about all related facts to the water cycle and descending of rains. Let us look attentively at these holy verses which speak about every part of the water cycle. The sun is the driver of the aquatic cycle, God says :( And we have made (therein) a shining lamp (sun).)(Sûrat An-Naba’-verse13). Sun spreads the necessary heat and light to evaporate water and to form winds. Winds are the second driver of the aquatic cycle, God says :( And We send the winds fertilizing (to fill heavily the clouds with water), then cause the water (rain) to descend from the sky, and We give it to you to drink, and it is not you who are the owners of its stores [i.e. to give water to whom you like or to withhold it from whom you like].)(Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 22). Water which descends from the clouds is stored in the ground for hundreds of years without being spoiled ,taking into consideration that anyone may store the water for only couple of days it will spoil; God says:( it is not you who are the owners of its stores) ( Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 22). After evaporation of water it condenses in the sky in form of clouds, then winds fertilize the clouds, God says :( And we send the winds fertilizing) (Sûrat A-Hijr- verse 22). The Qur'an told us about the high heavy clouds which are responsible for rains and ice, God says: (See you not that Allah drives the clouds gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap of layers, and you see the rain comes forth from between them; and He sends down from the sky hail (like) mountains, (or there are in the heaven mountains of hail from where He sends down hail), and strikes therewith whom He wills, and averts it from whom He wills. The vivid flash of its (clouds) lightning nearly blinds the sight)(Sûrat An-Nûr-verse43)The water" which descends" is stored inside the ground in form of sweet springs to enable life to continue, God says: (See you not that Allah sends down water (rain) from the sky, and causes it to penetrate the earth, (and then makes it to spring up) as water-springs, and afterward thereby produces crops of different colors, and afterward they wither and you see them turn yellow; then He makes them dry and broken pieces. Verily, in this is a Reminder for men of understanding.)(Sûrat Az-Zumar-verse21). If these crops are not transferred to the yellow to be dry and broken pieces and if it remained Green, the cycle of plant wouldn't be renewed and we wouldn't get benefit from those broken pieces which transfer to be oil over hundreds of yeas. Scientists say that all of these operations are according to very organized and constant physical laws, God says: (And we sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure and we gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, we are Able to take it away.)(Sûrat Al-Mu’minûn-verse18). Look at the word "in due" which refers to discipline and arrangement. The most important part in this cycle, what is happening at the area which is called the mouth (where rivers flow in seas), Qur'an says: (And it is He who has let free the two seas (kinds of water): this is palatable and sweet, and that is salt and bitter; and He has set a barrier and a complete partition between them.)(Sûrat Al-Furqân-verse 53) .Unless Rivers are flowing in seas[...]

The luminescence miracle


Allah Almighty gave many graces for His creatures, even in the deep oceans, let us read and glorify God ….When Prophet Moses went to the pharaoh calling him to believe in Allah, the pharaoh asked him who is Allah. Then Moses replied :( Our Lord is He who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright.)(Sûrat Tâ-Hâ- verse50).Those words were enough for the pharaoh to believe in Allah but the pharaoh did not understand. In these words there are great miracles as everyday scientists discover unknown creatures for us and also they discover that the systems of these creatures couldn't be developed by it, but there is a precise program controlling everything inside. The most amazing things I have ever saw are some living organisms in the deep oceans (thousands kilometers under the sea) as God be He exalted had supported these creatures by complicated systems to release rays of light!! In 8000 meter under the ocean there is a fish that human didn’t know anything about only few years ago. God created this amazing fish, inside the body many chemicals reactions occur which leads to releasing light from it. Despite the water pressure at that point as it is 800 times the air pressure! This means that on each centimeter in its body there is a pressure up to 800 kilogram!! The question is, how can this little fish bear that huge pressure? Who fit it to live in that depth and darkness? And who exploits the suitable livelihood to feed it?It has no lighting system, it doesn't wear any special suit as a protection from pressure and it has no special system to avoid the cold water. The only thing it has got is small brain which contains the needed program to guide it in its way in the deep oceans. This biological lighting occur due to some reactions inside the fish, as some atoms integrate with oxygen and calcium atoms, and because of that integration the electrons move from the inner orbit to the outer orbit in the atom to release the light photons.Allah Almighty didn't forget these creatures whom are living eight thousand meter under the ocean, how can He almighty forget a man say "there is no God but Allah"? Here we can say that the Qur'an told us about these creatures which are supported by light in a nice sign. He said:(Or [the state of a disbeliever] is like the darkness in a vast deep sea, overwhelmed with waves topped by waves, topped by dark clouds, (layers of) darkness upon darkness: if a man stretches out his hand, he can hardly see it! And he for whom Allah has not appointed light, for him there is no light.)(Sûrat an-Nûr- verse40).Despite these darkness which is similar to the deeds of disbelievers but Allah had lighted the way for these creatures under the water in the darkness, so He said :( And he for whom Allah has not appointed light, for him there is no light.)(Sûrat An-Nûr- verse 40) as if He be blessed and exalted wants to tell us that He gave the lighting ability to some of His creatures. Don't we look attentively at these words to understand miracles of Allah? And to accept and understand His orders as if we do, indeed Allah will give us the light to light up our way in this world which is full of darkness of atheism and the Ignorance of God . The pharaoh refused the "calling for truth", so can we accept it? Allah be He blessed and exalted is the creator of everything, we ask Him to guide us to the straight way and to give us the light in the da[...]
