The origin and creation of the universe is an issue which has concerned man throughout the ages, especially non-Muslims; since Islam has clarified and expounded all matters that need clarification. Therefore, Muslims are not puzzled or confused, (concerning the phenomenon that occurs in the universe) and they do not invent theories and hypothesis regarding these things, which may be discarded with the advent of a new theory.

We firmly believe that whatever is mentioned in the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah regarding these issues is the truth which all theories must conform to. All that differs with it would indeed be proven false.

Allah (SWT) the Creator of the seen and unseen worlds, is not in need of His creation; rather, His creation is in need of Him. Allah (SWT) says:

(O mankind! It is you who stand in need of Allah, but Allah is Rich (Free of all wants and needs), worthy of all praise. * If He wills, He could destroy you and bring about a new creation. * And that is not hard for Allah.) [35:15-7]

You alone would benefit from your belief and righteous deeds. Allah (SWT) says:

(If you disbelieve (then that is for your own harm), (for) Allah is not in need of you. (But) He is not pleased with disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased therewith for you.) [39:7] Continue reading

This book represents a concise review of Islam’s viewpoint toward love. It explains the following questions that  Muslims often ask: What is love?, Does Islam acknowledge this phenomenon called love?, What is the wisdom behind  this phenomenon?, What are the various classifications of love? Which type of love is the most sacred in Islam?  What is the Islamic stance toward Uzri or chaste love and flirting? These questions will be answered in detail in  the pages of the book, without any confusion or ambiguity.

Note:

The translator made a mistake on page 124 when he said ‘A muslim who follows the way of adultery and  fornication is not a Muslim whether he fasts and prays’, however this should read ‘if he believes these actions to  be halal then he is not a Muslim’. Continue reading
