Not possible! Simply speaking, it is off of all possible probability charts!
And, then, not only that: Do you know that the Qur’an uses that Most Revolutionary Expression, Al ‘Aalameen, the Worlds, not once or twice or 10 times, but a soul-stirring 73 times, no less?
Do you know that?
You don’t? You didn’t know that? Well, what can I say?
Non-Muslims don’t care, Muslims don’t share. So, the fate of world is in a pretty precarious place.
I can only quote God in the Qur’an:
Yaa Hasratan ‘Alal ‘Ibaad!
That is what God himself says in the Qur’an!
Yaa Hasratan ‘Alal ‘Ibaad!
“How pitiable are human beings! How utterly sad and sorry their life!”
And then there is even more!
God Almighty, in the Qur’an, calls himself Rabbul ‘Aalameen, not once or twice – or even 10 times – but no less than 42 times.
That doesn’t mean anything to you?
All I can say is: Yaa Hasratan ‘Alal ‘Ibaad!
Non-Muslims don’t care, Muslims don’t share. So, humanity hurtles down the path of loss and despair.
Wal ‘Asr! Innal Insaana La Fee Khusr!
“Judged by the testimony of Time, the Human Being is in a State of Loss.”
That is why I say: Don’t ask the Muslims. And don’t ask the Non-Muslims. But, instead, go directly to the Qur’an, and ask God Almighty himself who he really is!
And he will tell you who he is:
Maker, Master and Owner of All the Multiple Worlds!
That is who he really is!
Isn’t this alone reason enough for everyone everywhere to check out the Qur’an and see who really God is?
Dumb and Dumber
Between Muslims and Non-Muslims, I have often wondered who is dumb and who is dumber.
And that is, partly, because of all the wonders and miracles – and all the cures for humanity’s myriad ailments – that are packed in the Qur’an.
But one side will not tell and share what it knows, and the other side will not wonder, inquire or ask about what it does not know.
So, I find myself asking, how does one sort out the dumb and the dumber in this most tragic and painful equation.
Rahmaan and Rahmat: What else could you possibly want?
God Almighty is Ar-Rahmaan and Ar-Raheem – the fathomless and infinite and ever-flowing fountain of love and mercy and benevolence and beneficence.
And Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, is Rahmat: the personification and outreach of that fathomless and infinite divine love and mercy in creation – in this universe.
And Muslims say they have them both. So, what is their problem then?
What else can anyone want?
Islam and Life: What a Perfect Confluence! And What a Perfect Choice!
Islam and life: What a perfect confluence! What a perfect combination, I mean.
And, if you ask me, what a perfect choice!
Let me explain.
For those wanting to know what Islam is, let me ask them a very different question: What is it you want most out of life?
For, Islam is all that life is and more – much, much more.
I mean, tell me all that you seek, or need, from life. And I will show you how Islam offers you all that you seek or want or need from life – and more.
I will even tell you how Islam shows in practical terms – step by step – how you can get what you want.
That is one of the things that never ceases to amaze me about Islam. And, personally, pushes me harder and harder, and closer to closer, to the point of crying out: “No! There is no way this Islam could be from any source other than God.”
Therefore, for example, if it is wealth you seek, Islam offers you the worlds. Not one world but two: this world and the next world.
Islam throws open before you the treasures of both worlds. Treasures you never even would suspect exist.
If it is health you seek, Islam opens doors for you of not only physical but of also mental and spiritual health. To the point that you are inexorably driven to conclude: Islam is all about health and wellbeing – your own health, in every imaginable way, and everyone else’s health and wellbeing.
If, on the other hand, it is love you are looking for, Islam guarantees you love in all its purest and most sublime and perfect forms. And in its fullest, richest and most glorious abundance.
For, Islam offers you physical and psychological love and fulfillment through your lawful, pure, filial, spousal and conjugal bonds.
And it offers you the highest and most soaring and abiding forms of intellectual and spiritual love in the form of loving God and his vast, varied and endless creation that envelops you in never-ending and ever-widening concentric circles, both horizontal and vertical.
Islam teaches you to love everything beautiful in this world.
If it is the satisfaction of human achievement you wish, then Islam offers you the joy and comfort, and deep satisfaction, of turning to God formally, and “ritually,” as it is sometimes called, no less than five times a day – and reporting to him, directly and in person, all that you did or did not do, and then hear from him at the same time.
These five-times-a-day formal worship routines are called “Prayers” in English, which in some ways is a misnomer, and Swalaat in Arabic by the Qur’an – God Almighty’s book in human hands.
If it is power you seek, Islam offers to make you the master of the world, nothing less – the master of all you survey, as someone once said, and of much more that most other people can neither survey nor fathom.
Islam beckons you to tap directly into the power of God, speaking through his speech; seeing through his vision; hearing through his hearing; partaking of his infinite knowledge and wisdom; and grasping and holding through his hand.
