  • Could this universe, which is delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life, come by an accident?
  • The  mathematical forms encoded in the laws of nature, the precise specification of the nineteen universal constants and the remarkable initial conditions required for star formation and the simplest living systems, are proofs  for the existence of God.
  • Evidences for existence of God are countless. They just need a person who is willing to open his eyes and work his mind to see that the fingerprints of God are all around us and all throughout us.
  • Well let's take the example of the nuclear force which binds protons neutrons within atomic nuclei. If the ratio of the strong force relative to the electromagnetic force increases by only 3.4%, the result would be a universe with no hydrogen, no long lived stars that burn hydrogen, and no water (composed of hydrogen and oxygen), which is essential for life.
  • In living cells all information are stored in the genetic material, DNA, which is transcribed into RNA and translated into protein. Each of these three polymeric molecules requires the other two to function.  If for the sake of argument, a DNA, was accidentally found, what is its value and it could not function or copy itself without the help of RNA and protein.
  • A meaningful  and functional DNA accidentally formed from scratch is analogous to writing a coherent  paragraph from a random sequence of letters; a process beyond  imagination.
  • We may conclude that, it takes a great deal more faith to believe in an accidental universe than to believe in a Creator.
  • " Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding" (Qur'an, 3:190  ).

  • "They have hearts wherewith they understand not, they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth)"(Qur'an, 7:179).



  • Wherever and whenever Man is found he worships God!
  • God is inherent in our hearts. " When your Lord brought forth from Adam's lion his offspring and made them testify as to themselves:   Am I not your Lord? They said Yes, We testify" (Qur'an, 7:172).
  • However, man has taken anything as God or symbol of God!!
  • He has worshiped, insects, winds, sun, animals, humans, selfish desires, etc.
  • Man has created so many religions.
  • Man usually follows what he finds in his Society.
  • Man should use his mind guided by his heart instead of blindly  following others.


  • Why does Man live a miserable life though he might possess whatever he wishes of materialistic things?
  • Because Man ignores the fact that God made him of flesh and spirit/soul.
  • Peace of heart and mind is not gained through materialistic enjoyments.
  • Peace of heart and mind is gained through nourishment of spirit.
  • Peace of heart and mind is gained through closeness to God.
  • "Verily in the remembrance of God, do hearts find rest (Qur'an, 3:28).



  • "There is no God but Him, the Alive, the Eternal " (Qur'an, 2:225).
  • "The Originator of the Heavens, and the Earth" (Qur'an, 6:59).
  • "His is the Command and to Him you will be brought back" (Qur'an, 28:88).
  • "His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the Earth. He ordains life and death and has power over all things.  He is the First and the Last and the Inward and the outward and He has power over all things" (Qur'an, 57:3).
  • "He is the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful" (Qur'an,59:22).
  • "And He is Oft-Forgiving, full of love" (Qur'an, 85:14).
  • "Say : He is God, the One. God , the Eternally besought of all. He begot none nor was He begotten. And there is none comparable to Him" (Qur'an, 112).




  • God is our Creator
  • He knows our weaknesses and shortcomings.
  • He is Loving, Forgiving and Merciful.
  • He is close to us and He needs no mediators.
  • Adam was forgiven and so we are, if we just repent.
  • God's door is always open for us to repent.
  • God forgives us even if we sin over and over again.
  • God forgives all sins, no matter how much or how big they are.
  • "And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, tell them, I am indeed near. I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me" (Qur'an, 2:186).
  • Association of partners to God is the only unforgivable sin.




  • God loves us and that is why He created us.
  • He has given us health, mind, hearing, eye  sight and countless other things.
  • ''And if you count the blessing of God you can't recon them''(Qur'an 16:18)
  • Are we grateful to God?
  • Could we be grateful to God and we submit to man made gods?
  • Could we be grateful to God and disobey Him?
  • We should obey God and associate no partners to Him.
  • Then we can fairly express our gratitude to God.




  • Man without control is always selfish.
  • He may spoil, transgress, cheat, use and exploit others for his desires.
  • He may create excuses to announce wars, destroy and kill under false slogans.
  • Is that why God created us ?
  • God created us to serve Him and civilize the Earth.
  • Unless we serve God, through His revealed teachings, we may destroy anything and  un-purposely serve Satan.



  • Everything in the Universe surrenders to the Law of God.
  • We have will over many things.
  • However, we have no will over many other things, like birth, death, colour, shape, health, etc.
  • If we submit our will to God, we will live in harmony with all His creation.
  • Submission to God is Islam.


  • Freedom is not a slogan.
  • Man may be enslaved by other man like a leader, a singer, etc.
  • He may become a slave of  customs, habits, desires, traditions, etc.
  • God created man free from all types of slavery.
  • Man can become truly free by submitting himself only to God.
  • Get your freedom and submit to God.


  • Our relationship with God is not only a supplication or a prayer every now and then.
  • It is not remembering Him, when we are in a trouble (hardship).
  • God is with us all the time with His knowledge.
  • Have you  considered consciously to be with God all the time?
  • Have we considered what satisfies or unsatisfies Him.
  • In Islam it is not only during your prayers you are linked to God!
  • You link yourself to God in all your actions, even before you sleep!
  • Closeness to God, brings peace, pleasure and self confidence.
  • Linking ourselves to God enlightens our lives.


  • God loves us and that is why He created us.
  • Do we love Him as He loves us ?
  • God tests our love through our obedience and submission.
  • We should, therefore,  submit to Him.
  • God is so kind that He lets us enjoy His countless blessings in spite of our disobedience.
  • We should sacrifice and abandon what God has forbidden to prove our love.
  • No love without sacrifice.




  • One of the attributes of  God is Peace.
  • One of the literal meanings of Islam is Peace.
  • Peace of heart and mind is not gained through materialistic enjoyments.
  • Peace of heart and mind is gained through closeness to God.
  • "Verily in the remembrance of God, do hearts find rest.



  • We sometimes have selfish desires!!
  • Submission to God, means giving up some of our desires.
  • In return, submission brings to us harmony with the whole Universe which submits to the law of God.
  • Submission brings peace of  mind and heart.
  • Submission is a gate to happiness in this life and the life to come.
  • Do we have courage and will to give up some of our desires and submit to God?




  • God does not prohibit enjoyments.
  • Nonetheless, some enjoyments could cause damage to us and/or others.
  • God is our Creator and knows how to protect us and others.
  • We can lead a happy life and still keep away from forbidden enjoyments.
  • The question is, do we have the will and courage to give up  our selfish desires?





  • Life is short and temporary.
  • Nobody wishes to suffer in life.
  • Nobody ever lives without sufferings.
  • God tests us with goodness and hardships.
  • When we suffer we should return to God.
  • Turning to God strengthens us against our sufferings.
  • Our sufferings would turn to be beneficial if we turn to God.
  • Through sufferings god purifies us from our sins.




  • Life is short and temporary.
  • We start life with the Will of God and leave by His Will.
  • The world to come is our destination.
  • In the Hereafter, we will be rewarded with paradise or get punished with Hell Fire.
  • Our destination could be Paradise or Fire.
  • What have you chosen for  your destination ?



  • All that in the Universe submits to God.
  • Would God come to earth and submits Himself to the laws of nature; eating drinking and responding to the call of nature??
  • Would He come to Earth and submits Himself to Satan's trials?
  • Would He come, to be insulted, tortured and an crucified by Man?
  • God is the Omnipotent, the Supreme and the Originator of the Heavens and Earth.
  • God is so loving, Merciful, Forgiving, and Just.
  • He has forgiven Adam, so, He does not need to punish us for Adam's sin, or to come to be punished on Earth.
  • God is God in the Heavens and the Earth.



  • Our home was paradise and Adam disobeyed God and ate from the forbidden tree.
  • Adam repented and was forgiven, was given another chance on Earth to demonstrate his obedience and submission to God.
  • Whenever people deviated from the message of God, a prophet was sent to them.
  • All prophets like, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed were sent with the same message, obedience and submission to God.
  • Jesus himself was sent to the Jews when they deviated from the Torah sent with Moses.
  • Today's Christianity was mixed by Constantine with pagan sun worship beliefs and practices, like Trinity, incarnation, Easter, Christmas, etc.
  • These beliefs and practices were neither preached by Jesus nor by other prophets.
  • God  sent Muhammad to restore His original message.
  • "Indeed the religion with God is Islam (to surrender to God's Will and Guidance) (Qur'an 3:19)" .



  • The basic story of the Only Begotten, God incarnate Savior, the Redeemer and Sin bearer, who suffered for mankind and sacrificed himself (crucified) for their salvation, was repeated for gods of several ancient religions like: Osiris and Horus of Egypt, Tammuz of Syria, Krishna of India, Mithra of Persia, Prometheus of Athens and Serapes of the Romans.
  • Today's Christianity was formulated 325 years after Jesus by the Counsel of Nicaea after the apparent conversion of Constantine, the pagan Roman Emperor, to Christianity.
  • Jesus preached oneness of God and His obedience (Islam), like all other prophets.
  • If Jesus returns, would he recognize today's Christians as his followers?!
  • "And when Jesus, son of Mary, said: "O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of God unto you confirming the Torah, which came before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me (Muhammad)" (Qur'an, 61:6).






  • Jesus (PBUH) was a messenger and prophet of God.
  • His birth was miraculous and he did many miracles by God's Will.
  • He did not preach himself as God  or son of God.
  • Jesus preached the oneness of God like all other prophets of Islam.
  • Trinity was introduced long time  after Jesus
  • "The Messiah, son of Mary was a messenger of  God and His word, which was conveyed unto Mary and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messenger and say not' three-Desist'! It is only One God. Far removed from His transcendent Majesty to have a son" (Qura'n 4:171).




  • Muhammad (PBUH) is the seal of prophets of God.
  • Like all other prophets he preached oneness and obedience of God.
  • The book revealed to him is the Qur'an.
  • Muhammad was a good example in all aspects of life.
  • He was a shepard, a merchant, a father, a husband, a friend a leader,  etc.
  • No man ever in history has been loved and thoroughly followed in all his aspects of life like Muhammad.
  • Muhammad and his followers suffered too much to bring to you Islam as pure as it was revealed, more than 14 centuries ago.
  • "And We have sent you (O Muhammad) as a mercy for the Worlds " (Qur'an, 21:107).
  • "Say (O Muhammad), if you love God follow me and God will love you" (Qur'an 3).




  • The Qur'an is the words of God, revealed to Muhammad (PBUH), through Angel Gabriel.
  • The Qur'an is well preserved.
  • It has been memorized by heart by Muslims since it's revelation.
  • God talks to us through the Qur'an.
  • It is a comprehensive book of guidance, which deals with all aspects of life.
  • The Qur'an has its persuasive way to open true hearts  and minds.
  • It moves hearts of peoples regardless to their race, age, culture and knowledge.
  • The divinity of the Holy Qur'an,  has been proved through several scientific facts mentioned in it and uncovered recently by scientists.




  • In Western Societies women have lost their identity.
  • They run after false needs and desires.
  • They have been exploited and commercialized as sex symbol.
  • They have lost their dignity, purity and security.
  • Islam respects woman's dignity and purity.
  • Islam appreciates the differences between man and woman.
  • Islam values the partnership of woman and man as complementary corner stones in the building of the Society.




  • Was Jesus sent to break the Law of God ? Definitely not.  "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill" (Mathew 5:17).
  • The spirit of God's Law revealed and conveyed  by all prophets is the same.
  • Interest which is now an economic norm, is prohibited in the Bible (Exodus,  22:25; Deuteronomy 23:19-20).
  • Adultery and fornication which are normal practices in some societies, are forbidden in the Bible (Revelation 21:8; Galatians 5:19).
  • Murderers should be sentenced to death according to the Bible (Genesis 9:5-6).
  • Polygamy, is not prohibited in the Bible.  It was practiced before the Church, by people  and prophets like Abraham, Solomon and Jacob(Genesis 16:1-4; Kings 11:2-3; Genesis 31:17). The German Society needed it after the 2nd world war. It would have allowed women to have legitimate relations that  protect their rights and the rights of their children.
  • Would, we blame Muslims because they keep to the Law of God, or would we blame those who drop God's Law and follow their selfish desires ??
  • Have you (O Muhammad) seen him who has taken as his god his own desire? (Qur'an, 25:43).
  • "Say (O Muhammad), O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! You have no ground to stand upon unless you act according to the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been sent down to you from your Lord [the Qur'an] (Qur'an, 5:68).


  • Today's Christianity has nothing to do with Jesus message.
  • Constantine, the pagan Roman Emperor,  who was torturing Christians claimed to have been converted to Christianity.
  • Constantine himself was the high priest of sun worship, therefore, he continued his religion and called it Christianity.
  • One of the requirements in sun worship is a need for three gods, father, mother and child. The child becomes the reincarnation of the father. Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis was one of the oldest trinity, the three-in-one Sungod.
  • Constantine enforced the Trinity in 325 AD after the Council of Nicea. People that would not conform to his version of Christianity,  were tortured or killed.
  • The cross, the symbol of Tammuz and several pre-Christianity pagan religions, became the symbol of Christianity.
  • Sunday (Day of the Sun)  instead of the Sabbath became the rest day.
  • The date of December 25th which was  a celebration of the Roman god, Saturn, and the rebirth of the sun god became the date of birth of Jesus.
  • Constantine merged pagan beliefs and practices with Christianity.
  • So, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas which are three major religious celebrations of Christianity, are in fact pagan religious practices.
  • Today's Christianity contradicts with God's message conveyed with Jesus and all other prophets.
