Everything was Created by Coincidence!

أَمْ خُلِقُوا مِنْ غَيْرِ شَيْءٍ أَمْ هُمُ الْخَالِقُونَ أَمْ خَلَقُوا السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بَل لَّا يُوقِنُونَ Or were they created by nothing, or were they the creators [of themselves]? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain. [Surah at-Tur, Ayah 35,36]  When an atheist asserts that coincidence is what led…

Regarding Interpretation of Dreams

Dreams are of 3 types: 1. Those from Allah 2. Those from Shaytan 3. Those from a person’s mind, experiences and interpretation of the soul. Narrated Abu Qatada: The Prophet ﷺ said, الرُّؤْيَا الصَّالِحَةُ مِنَ اللَّهِ، وَالْحُلْمُ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ، فَإِذَا حَلَمَ فَلْيَتَعَوَّذْ مِنْهُ وَلْيَبْصُقْ عَنْ شِمَالِهِ، فَإِنَّهَا لاَ تَضُرُّهُ “A good dream that comes true…

The Problem of Evil

If There Is A God, Why Does He Allow Evil To Happen? The problem of evil is the atheists’ most centric argument. In many debates when an atheist is cornered and immensely bombarded with multitude of God’s existence- logical proofs and prior to throwing in the towel, he shifts to the problem of evil argument…

Boxing and Islam

Around 31 years ago, in October 1987, the Islamic Fiqh Academy of the Muslim World League had gathered together in Makkah to discuss a number of pertinent issues to the Muslims of that time. Many issues discussed in this meeting appear just as relevant 31 years later, if not more, as they were at that…

Why I Left Social Media

“Oh! You’re no longer on Facebook?” This is a regular question that I am faced with whenever conversations about if I have seen or heard this or that on Facebook arise. I cannot say I have absolutely no clue what social media is, but I can say for certain I have absolutely no idea what…

A Traveler’s Guide

18 years of living in a Muslim country had me taking the Islamic way of life for granted and when I moved to a predominantly non-Muslim country for higher studies, my happy-go-lucky life took quite a 360° jerk.

Death Note

Man’s greatest fear is death. Our fear of death is existential. Death is associated with everything horrid and depressing. We tend to not remember it as much as we can.

The Abominable Touch

*Madinah, Saudi Arabia* Perhaps around 8-10 years ago, I and the elder sister walk into a small local store while our madre waited out in the car. Although it was the only one open in the area, it was also quite close to the Masjid and presumably ‘safe’. It was unoccupied and while we separated,…

Islam Is My Life Because..

Before marriage, the place of Deen (religion) in my life was only limited to praying the Friday prayers and fasting the month of Ramadan.
