Torn Inside with Mixed Feelings

by | May 15, 2021

Normally, the end of the month of Ramadan is supposed to be a day to rejoice, since it is one of the two days that are ordained by Allah to be celebrated during the year. However, this year, the festivities have been celebrated with mixed feelings.

The reason… because of what is presently going on in Jerusalem, Al-Quds, Palestine. The Zionist state is on a mission to seclude, destroy and erase anything that is Muslim or has to do with Islam. From attacking Muslim worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque to destroying entire neighborhood blocks with airstrikes.

This weekend was supposed to be a time to rejoice with friends and family. Yet, even with Covid still going strong, we will be demonstrating this Saturday afternoon all across the country for the following three reasons.

  • To show our solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Holy City and Palestine.
  • To denounce the injustices of genocide and war crimes of the Zionist state as well as the hypocrisy of Middle-East leaders.
  • To exert pressure on our elected officials who are great to sermon the world on how to conduct themselves, but prefer to wear white gloves when it comes to the subject of Israel and hide behind the false pretext that it has the right to defend itself.

So I call any and all who care about justice in this world to take to the streets in protest of what is happening in Palestine at the hands of the Zionist state.

To find out what is going on around you (in Canada) in this regard, Here’s the list of all the rallies scheduled in Canada that we know about:

Probability, you won’t Get the Best of Me! – Scientific Proofs in the Quran

If anyone is a betting man, he knows that most of the time he will lose; it is a question of numbers. Winning every time is improbable and practically impossible. When flipping a coin, you have one chance out of two of getting it right. 50%, not bad; but repeat it four times straight; not too confident, are you?

Let’s transpose that example to the prophet Muhammad; he got every single verifiable (with our limited knowledge to date) phenomenon right. Not only he got them right, but most of them are also explained; not just enunciated or left for interpretation. Let’s say there are about 20 scientific/natural phenomenon (Actually, more have been mentioned and others left out since a multitude of authors have done a better job than me explaining them. Plus, 20 seems like a pretty round number, and we don’t want to sound boastful either) that were elucidated 1400 years ago, by an illiterate Arab that had no aspirations to science whatsoever… When you do the math: ½ at the power 20 is ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½. That gives you the possibility of 1/1 048 576 of getting it right. That is less than one in a million probability; becoming less and less a betting man…Keep in mind, considering that the questioning is in a yes or no format; true or false to a given question (without formulating the solution and adding all the explanation that comes with it in the Quran and Hadith).

The thing is, it is not because the prophet Muhammad was an expert in astronomy, geology, chemistry, nuclear physics, biology, botany, entomology, oceanology, or even historical science that he got it right all the time. It is because the only thing he got right out of all of this is that he wholeheartedly believed in Allah. All these, verses, signs, scientific phenomenon were not explained or tackled by the prophet Muhammad; they were brought forth by Allah, the All-Knowing.

And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.
