Why are people Muslims?

User Avatar
Anyone who is submitting fully to Allah (or God in English and same God worshiped in Judaism and Christianity) as the one and only one God with no partner, no companion, no father, no son, no associate, and no equivalence is considered Muslim. All God prophets since Adam through Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon, Moses, ..., Jesus, and Muhammad called for submission to God (that is Islam). However, Islam per the Bible revelation to Jesus is called Christianity and Islam per Torah revelation to Moses is called Judaism and Islam per Quran revelation to Muhammad is called the very name Islam as it is the last God religion and prophet Muhammad is the last God prophet. People are Muslims per Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad for the authenticity and divinity of Quran and the good principals and fundamentals of Islam teachings. Additional factor that persuades many non Muslims to convert currently to Islam is the scientific miracles in many Quran verses that its correctness and validity had been proved only recently through the advances in sciences, discoveries, and technologies although the Quran had be revealed from more than 14 centuries ago.

What is modesty in Islam?

User Avatar
Modesty in Islam is one of the principles of faith. It is freedom from vanity and showiness. It is decency and moderation in speech, manner, dress and total attitude and behavior towards life. It is shyness, simplicity and humility about our abilities and accomplishments. Modesty is for both male and female. It isn't only for women as many people have the misconception. The sphere of Modesty in Islamic morality is so vast that it encompasses all aspects of human life. Imran bin Hussain narrated that prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as saying, "Modesty brings nothing but qood. Modesty is part of Faith and Faith is in Paradise. But obscenity is part of hardness of the heart and hardness of the heart is in hell." Zaid bin Talha narrated that prophet Muhammad as saying: " Modesty and Faith are companions; when one of them goes out, the other follows it. He also reported, God's Messenger said, Every religion has a character and the character of Islam is Modesty" Modesty prevents human beings from indulging into indecency and obscenity. If they commit sin under pressure of animal nature, it is modesty which makes them feel the pangs of conscience. If we lack modesty, desires will lay complete hold of us and we will not hesitate to indulge into any sin. Modesty is a strong moral deterrent against all evil inclinations. One of the main differences between animal and human behavior is the characteristic of modesty. Abdullah bin Masud narrated that prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as saying, Shall I not tell you who is kept away from hell, and from whom hell is kept away? Everyone who is gentle, kindly, approachable and of an easy disposition. That's what is called Modesty. The Muslim woman is beautified by her modesty in dress and manners, and guarded against indecent looks and behavior - even though she may be different from everyone else around her. Modesty is dignity, grace and adornment of a believer, given by the All-Wise Beneficent Allah (SWT), for the benefit of the Muslims and all mankind. Abdullah bin Musalm reported,prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as saying, "Modesty is a part of the teachings of the previous prophets, and anyone who lacks it may do whatever he likes." It is a pity that in the current, so called "free" society, Islamic standards of purity and modesty face continual threat and criticism. Modesty is the most important part of Islamic morals and characteristics. God do not like the arrogant and who is not modest. Quran says (meaning English translation): "Assuredly, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. Indeed, He does not like the arrogant." (16:23)

What are the Muslim holy books called and in which languages?

User Avatar
Answer 1 Qur'an is the only holy book of Muslims and Islam although Muslims believe in the divinity of all other God holy books (including the Torah and the Bible) as well as all other God prophets (since Adam through Noah, Abraham, Moses,..., and ending with Muhammad; peace be upon them all). Refer to questions below to know about Quran; about the Islam morals as extracted from Quran; and about the fundamentals of Islam. Quran was revealed by God to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Arabic (that is still an Alive language). However, Quran meanings have been translated to almost all languages of the world as Muslims are spread allover the world and speak their own country languages. The holy book of Islam is called the Qur'an. Muslims are committed to all teachings of Quran. Quran reflects real and true words of Allah (or God and same God in Christianity and Judaism) that had been revealed to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon). Per teachings of Quran and prophet Muhammad, Muslims believe in all God holy books as God revelations to His prophets (including Torah and the Bible) but not committed in their teachings. Muslims are committed; in addition to commitments to Quran teachings; to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) teachings through his sayings and practices (that is called Sunnah). Refer to the related question for more information on other holy and religious books as well related questions on more information about Qur'an holy book and its teachings.

What is the meaning of the word Kafir in Quran?

User Avatar
Kafir is an Arabic word that means unbeliever of some fact or truth. The root of the Kafir word is the verb 'kafar' that means to cover on some truth to hide it or it means simply to disbelieve. Also, it means to deny a truth. A person who denies the favors of Allah is said to be "kafir". So, Kafir is also the opposite of the grateful thankful person. In this sense Quran mentions kafir on those who hide the truth, although they know it, and insist on disbelieving and on denying submitting to God (Allah in Arabic) as the one and only one God, with no partner, no son, no companion, no associate, and no resemblance. Christians and Jews, in principal, are neither called in Quran as kafir nor as unbelievers. They are generally called 'people of the Scripture' as they are the holders of the holy books: the Bible and the Torah respectively. Quran says on people of the book (Christians and Jews): وَإِنَّ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ لَمَن يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّـهِ وَمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِمْ خَاشِعِينَ لِلَّـهِ لَا يَشْتَرُونَ بِآيَاتِ اللَّـهِ ثَمَنًا قَلِيلًا ۗ أُولَـٰئِكَ لَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ ﴿١٩٩﴾ Meaning English translation: {And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in Allah (God) and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them, [being] humbly submissive to Allah. They do not exchange the verses of Allah for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, Allah is swift in account. (199)} [Quran, chapter 3, verse 199] Quran says that who claims that Jesus is God or son of God or who believes in the Trinity has disbelieved: لَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّـهَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ ۖ وَقَالَ الْمَسِيحُ يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اعْبُدُوا اللَّـهَ رَبِّي وَرَبَّكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُ مَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّـهِ فَقَدْ حَرَّمَ اللَّـهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَأْوَاهُ النَّارُ ۖ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنصَارٍ ﴿٧٢﴾ لَّقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّـهَ ثَالِثُ ثَلَاثَةٍ ۘ وَمَا مِنْ إِلَـٰهٍ إِلَّا إِلَـٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۚ وَإِن لَّمْ يَنتَهُوا عَمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَيَمَسَّنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ ﴿٧٣﴾ أَفَلَا يَتُوبُونَ إِلَى اللَّـهِ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَهُ ۚ وَاللَّـهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ ﴿٧٤﴾ مَّا الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ إِلَّا رَسُولٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِن قَبْلِهِ الرُّسُلُ وَأُمُّهُ صِدِّيقَةٌ ۖ كَانَا يَأْكُلَانِ الطَّعَامَ ۗ انظُرْ كَيْفَ نُبَيِّنُ لَهُمُ الْآيَاتِ ثُمَّ انظُرْ أَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ ﴿٧٥﴾ قُلْ أَتَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّـهِ مَا لَا يَمْلِكُ لَكُمْ ضَرًّا وَلَا نَفْعًا ۚ وَاللَّـهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ ﴿٧٦﴾ Meaning English translation: {They have certainly disbelieved who say, " Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary" while the Messiah has said, "O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Indeed, he who associates others with Allah - Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers. (72) They have certainly disbelieved who say, " Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment. (73) So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (74) The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded. (75) Say, "Do you worship besides Allah that which holds for you no [power of] harm or benefit while it is Allah who is the Hearing, the Knowing?" (76)} [Quran, chapter 5, verses 72-76]

What is meaning of Ayaan?

Name: Ayaan Meaning: Gift of God Gender: Male Origin: Arabic Ayaan word is mentioned in Surah al naml(ants) verse number 65 in the holy Quran it means the day of judgment , also the Arabic meaning is gift of god its also a sanskrit word meaning speed. Günther Schlee seems to translate ayaan as "day." (Chapter: "Loanwords in Oromo and Rendille as a mirror of past inter-ethnic relations." Book: African Languages, Development and the State. Page 201. 1994.) Mohamed Diriye Abdullahi says, "Ayaan means good luck and destiny, someone who is in good luck and prosperous might be referred to as ayaanle. Ayaan is also a popular name for girls. In the ancient Cushitic religion, the ayaan, or ayana among the Oromo, are good spirits or angels that mediate between god and humans and whose blessings one seeks. As is known from practices among non-Muslim non-Christian Oromo, the chief priest of the Cushitic cult is the qallu." (Book: Culture and Customs of Somalia. Page 65. 2001.)
Asked in Islam, Marriage, Quran (Koran)

Can a Muslim woman remarry her husband she divorced?

User Avatar
Yes, a Muslim woman can remarry her ex-husband after the first divorce and second divorce. However, after the third divorce she can marry him again only after she got married and divorced from another man. َQur'an says (Meaning English translation): "Divorce is twice. Then, either keep [her] in an acceptable manner or release [her] with good treatment. And it is not lawful for you to take anything of what you have given them unless both fear that they will not be able to keep [within] the limits of Allah. But if you fear that they will not keep [within] the limits of Allah, then there is no blame upon either of them concerning that by which she ransoms herself. These are the limits of Allah, so do not transgress them. And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah - it is those who are the wrongdoers. And if he has divorced her [for the third time], then she is not lawful to him afterward until [after] she marries a husband other than him. And if the latter husband divorces her [or dies], there is no blame upon the woman and her former husband for returning to each other if they think that they can keep [within] the limits of Allah. These are the limits of Allah, which He makes clear to a people who know. " (2:229-230) Refer to discussion area for more information.

Manners doesn't really deal with religion. It is a part of the human characterisitcs. Everyone either has good or bad manners. Having manners will let people respect you. They will be kind towards you and they won't hesitate to talk or be your friend. A person with good manners is honored everywhere while a person with bad manners is spoken about badly. A person with bad manners will have people treat him as if he is a piece of 'trash' that they won't even bother to look at. They'll think that your parents didn't bring you up. Also, the Prophet pbuh had mashallah wonderful manners. The Prophet pbuh is the example to all Muslims. We all are supposed to have good manners. It will help take you far in life.

there was not a horse,there was a "Camel" and she was White in colour... Mohammed personally owned at least three horses. The British historian William Muir writes: The first horse which Mohammed ever possessed was one he purchased of the Bani Fazara, for ten owqiyas (ounces of silver, worth about £1,000); and he called its name Sakb ("running water"), from the easiness of its paces. Mohammed was mounted on it at the battle or Uhud, there being but one other horse from Medina on the field. He had also a horse called Sabaha: he raced it, and it won, and he was greatly rejoiced thereat. He had a third horse named Murtajis ("neigher"). Unfortunately, this does not give any information about the colour of the horses.

Why was the Qur'an revealed?

User Avatar
The Quran (alternate spellings: Quraan, Qura'n, Kuran, Koran, Kura'n) is the holy book of Islam. The Quran was revealed to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from God by the angel Gabriel about 600 years after Jesus' birth. The revelation started by 610 AD and continued until 632 AD, the year of prophet Muhammad's death. One of the primary objectives of revelation in the Quran is to call people to worship one and only one God, without father, son, spirit, or duplicate of any kind. Also the Quran reveals that some of the previous revelations from God, including some texts of the Torah, the Psalms and the Gospels, have been changed and falsified over time, necessitating the need for a final revelation. The preaching sections of the Quran remind people about the coming of the Day of Judgment and then urges that this Day should be taken into consideration during one's lifetime. You are urged to be grateful to your God by doing good works. Good works are characterized by being socially relevant, that is, of benefit to society. The preaching considers a central theme that people should be conscious of God during this life and follow the direction of the way of God. The way of God is not defined by dogma but is indicated operationally in two ways. The first pertains to carrying out actions characterized only by being beneficial to the welfare of humanity (society). The second involves the means of gaining faith in God through observing His creation. The Qur'an stresses that all previous messengers and prophets of God are fully human and not divine. The Qur'an also contains teaching related to previous prophets. This teaching involves reminding Jews and Christians of some aspects of their Scriptures and traditions, and their basic deviations from God's original revelations. Among the more important teachings are ones dealing with the divinity of Jesus and the concept of Judaic exclusiveness. The Qur'an invites Jews and Christians to hear and accept the new message. Included in the Qur'an are statements and principles that establish the position of mankind on earth, and that provide guidance and freedom of choice. As a consequence of granting freedom of choice to mankind, religious diversity is taken for granted, so the Quran contains the principles regulating the dynamic coexistence among the various communities, faiths, and cultures. The Quran also deals with rituals such as praying, fasting, food restrictions, and pilgrimage. The Quran deals also with some aspects of social regulations like inheritance, punishment, marriage and divorce, and so on. The Quran also laid down the principles of human rights, women's rights, equality of all people regardless of gender, belief, race, or culture. One of the proofs that the holy book Quran was not written by humans or extracted from other books and that the Quran was a revelation from God to Prophet Mohamed is that the Quran includes many scientific statements that were only later proved by science. These statements are considered to be scientific miracles of the Quran; they were revealed by God 14 centuries ago and were validated in modern times. In this regard some words are quoted below by Dr. Maurice Bucaille (an eminent medical scientist and a member of the French Academy of Medicine). He is the author of the book entitled "The Bible, The Quran and Science." "Science and Islam's close relationship with it played a tremendous role in strengthening my faith and that of scientists throughout history - even today! This is a fascinating section - do take time to explore it!" The Holy Quran was written to create permanently copy of Allah's (God's) final message to Mankind after this there would be no more messages from Allah (God). Due the sheer importance of this message, when ever a part of it was revealed to Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peach be Upon Him) through the Angel Gabriel it was immediately written by almost every time by at least 3 people to create a hard copy in the presence of Holy Prophet (Peace be Upon Him). It was also immediately memorized by those people. Thus eliminating the chances of it being corrupted by anything and ensuring that what originally was revealed by Angel Gabriel is what exactly is in Quran word for word. In addition, Quran revelation continued over 22 year (started in year 610 AD through year 632 AD when prophet Muhammad (PBUH) died) that allowed many Muslims to memorize it by heart and reciting it in their prayers 5 times a day. Moreover, Quran texts were revised once every year by prophet Muhammad and the angel Gabriel and revised twice on the year of prophet death. All these facts confirm Quran authenticity and that it is the only holy book that reflects real God words with its original revelation language.

Asked in Islam, Quran (Koran), Mountains

What is the scientific miracle in Quran saying on the mountains?

User Avatar
ANSWER 1: A book entitled Earth is a basic reference textbook in many universities around the world. One of its two authors is Professor Emeritus Frank Press. He was the Science Advisor to former US President Jimmy Carter, and for 12 years was the President of the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC. His book says that mountains have underlying roots. These roots are deeply embedded in the ground, thus, mountains have a shape like a peg. [ references: Earth, Press and Siever, p. 435. Also see Earth Science, Tarbuck and Lutgens, p. 157] This is how the Quran has described mountains. God (Allah in Arabic) says in the Quran:أَلَمْ نَجْعَلِ الْأَرْضَ مِهَادًا ﴿٦﴾ وَالْجِبَالَ أَوْتَادًا ﴿٧﴾ Meaning English translation: {Have We not made the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs?} [Quran, chapter 78, verses 6-7] Modern earth sciences have proven that mountains have deep roots under the surface of the ground and that these roots can reach several times their elevations above the surface of the ground. So the most suitable word to describe mountains on the basis of this information is the word 'peg,' since most of a properly set peg is hidden under the surface of the ground. The history of science tells us that the theory of mountains having deep roots was introduced only in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Mountains also play an important role in stabilizing the crust of the earth. They hinder the shaking of the earth. God has said in the Quran: وَأَلْقَىٰ فِي الْأَرْضِ رَوَاسِيَ أَن تَمِيدَ بِكُمْ وَأَنْهَارًا وَسُبُلًا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ ﴿١٥﴾ Meaning English translation: {And He has set firm mountains in the earth so that it would not shake with you... } [Quran, chapter 16, verse 15] Likewise, the modern theory of plate tectonics holds that mountains work as stabilizers for the earth. This knowledge about the role of mountains as stabilizers for the earth has just begun to be understood in the framework of plate tectonics since the late 1960's. Could anyone during the time of the Prophet Muhammad ( PBUH) have known of the true shape of mountains? Could anyone imagine that the solid massive mountain which he sees before him actually extends deep into the earth and has a root, as scientists assert? A large number of books of geology, when discussing mountains, only describe that part which is above the surface of the earth. This is because these books were not written by specialists in geology. However, modern geology has confirmed the truth of the Quran verses. ANSWER 2: Scientific proof does not support the claim of Quran that mountains are fixed to keep earth from shaking. This is another scientific mistake in Quran.

How is Quran coherent with Modern Science?

User Avatar
Islam is the religion which is most coherent with the rules of science. Quran has many verses which relate to the modern science discoveries. The following answer will briefly explain the relation of Quran and Science. Physics and Astronomy: 1:Allah says in the Quran: "Do not the Unbelievers see That the heavens and the earth Were joined together (as one Unit of Creation), before We split them apart?" [Al-Qur'an 21:30] The above verse of Quran explains a widely accepted phenomenon of sicence: The Big Bang. 2:According to many astrophysicists The universe in its beginning was initially condensed into a mass known as primary nebula and then there was a universal explosion known as the big bang which split it into many galaxies. Moreover scientists say that the initial celestial matter was in form of smoke and gas. The following ayah in Quran describes this phenomenon: "Moreover, He Comprehended In His design the sky, And it had been (as) smoke: He said to it And to the earth: 'Come ye together, Willingly or unwillingly.' They said: 'We do come (Together), in willing obedience.'" [Al-Qur'an 41:11] How can a book which was revealed 1400 years ago be so coherent with the scientific knowledge discerned just nearly a century ago? 3:For a log time it was thought that all the celestial bodies were rotating around the earth, which was considered stationary. After the publication of Astronomia Nova in 1609 by Johannes Keppler it became clear that all the planets were revolving around the sun. After this discovery another misconception took place and it was thought that the sun is stationary. Allah says in Quran: "It is He who created The Night and the Day, And the sun and the moon: All (the celestial bodies) Swim along, each in its Rounded course." [Al-Qur'an 21:33] Again, this knowledge was just discerned in modern times how can any person from nomadic Arabia know such fact? This points towards the divine source of Quran. 4: Interstellar matter: Until previous times it was thought that the space out of the planets and stars is just vacuum which was disproved recently by the discovery of the interstellar matter. This fact was described in Quran 1400 years ago. "He Who created the heavens And the earth and all That is between." [Al-Qur'an 25:59]

From what is within their bodies between excretions and blood, We produce, for your drink, milk, pure and agreeable to those who drink it). Holy Quran,(16:66) _In the shadow of the noble verse: *. The verse is mentioning one of the countless favors of the Almighty Allah (The pure agreeable milk) *. The verse precedes the science to describe how is this pure milk produced between excretions & blood, this is a Divine sign from the Omnipotent Creator ! *. Telling that fact in the 7th century assures that the holy Quran is a Miracle. *. When any grant of Allah is mentioned you have to praise Him alone. (All praise is for Allah, the Lord of all creations ) Holy Quran,(1:2)
