Where’s your proof? – Contradiction

by | Jan 23, 2022

Whenever the word of Allah (i.e. the Quran) is challenged, it always rises to the occasion. So why not put all other beliefs to the same test, the same standard, and see if they can produce the counterarguments, the logic, and evidence that undeniably come with the word of Allah.

Ha, Meem.

The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

We did not create the heavens and earth and what is between them except in truth and [for] a specified term. But those who disbelieve, from that of which they are warned, are turning away.

Say, [O Muhammad], “Have you considered that which you invoke besides Allah? Show me what they have created of the earth; or did they have partnership in [creation of] the heavens? Bring me a scripture [revealed] before this or a [remaining] trace of knowledge, if you should be truthful.”

And who is more astray than he who invokes besides Allah those who will not respond to him until the Day of Resurrection, and they, of their invocation, are unaware.

Surah Al-Ahqaf (46 – 1-5)

The fact that all other religions contain incongruities, incoherencies, lies, fabrications, and flawed logic; is a testament to the truthfulness of the Quran. Don’t think that these incoherencies apply only to religions, but philosophies and theories. These philosophies and theories have become beliefs and laws in their own respect (just like atheism and all its dead ends).

Each one of the precedent (religions and philosophies) advances claims and justification, but none advance proof nor truth. Yet the proponents of these views spread them as truth.

Unfortunately, these false leaders will bear their brunt of the blame just as their followers who accepted to be lead astray.

And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie or denies His verses? Those will attain their portion of the decree until when Our messengers come to them to take them in death, they will say, “Where are those you used to invoke besides Allah ?” They will say, “They have departed from us,” and will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.

[ Allah ] will say, “Enter among nations which had passed on before you of jinn and mankind into the Fire.” Every time a nation enters, it will curse its sister until, when they have all overtaken one another therein, the last of them will say about the first of them “Our Lord, these had misled us, so give them a double punishment of the Fire. He will say, “For each is double, but you do not know.”

Surah Al-Aaraf (7 – 37-38)

Why would God Create Us to Send Us to Hell? – Existential Questions

Why would God Create Us to Send Us to Hell? – Existential Questions

A lot of people have asked themselves this question, including myself. And that is one of the hardest questions to answer. Because Allah is able to guide who he wants. He mentions this himself in the Quran:

Those who associated with Allah will say, “If Allah had willed, we would not have associated [anything] and neither would our fathers, nor would we have prohibited anything.” Likewise did those before deny until they tasted Our punishment. Say, “Do you have any knowledge that you can produce for us? You follow not except assumption, and you are not but falsifying.”

Say, “With Allah is the far-reaching argument. If He had willed, He would have guided you all.”

Surah Al-Anam (6 – 148-149)

However, when you think of it, it is like saying why go to school to flunk your exam? The point is that you don’t go to school to flunk; you go to school to learn and to succeed. Everyone has the opportunity to succeed. If you listen in class, study hard, do your homework, go to tutoring; you might not get 100%, but you are pretty confident to pass your exam. Often, even if you don’t pass, the teacher is more willing to give you extra points or consider other projects to boost your mark if you made an effort to succeed.

Allah has sent messengers, left written scriptures, people who have believed in him have forever walked this Earth; who has never heard of Islam? He has given us all the tools and reasons to believe, and yet, we shun away.

So when it comes to school, no one sheds a tear for a lazy, unwilling, rebellious student. However, when it comes to the single most important aspect: heaven or hell; everyone is up and arms, revolted at the perspective of ending up in hell.

It is as if Allah has pleasure in punishing mankind. Why would he find pleasure in such treatment; He created us. Therefore, He only asks little of us in return for great reward (heaven).

What would Allah do with your punishment if you are grateful and believe? And ever is Allah Appreciative and Knowing.

Surah An-Nisa (4 – 147)

The bare minimum is belief and gratefulness; faith and recognition; obedience and thankfulness. Two simple aspects that imply a lot but will save you from destruction.

Faith
