For Mr. Sadaf: My point was that for a scholar of Shabbir Ahmad’s repute, using the word criminals for Hadith compilers did not look nice. To express as strong feeling of resentment, I would have stated this way: Our honorable Hadiths compilers were guilty of criminal neglect by including words and sentences as Hadiths, which are prima-facie indecent and are against the tenets of Quran - or words to similar effect. When you call somebody a criminal, you are actually calling a name. It is obvious that there has been criminal neglect but if we carry on with the quarrel instead of trying to sort out the issues with gravity, we would also be guilty of some kind of criminality - the right word for which I am trying to ascertain. Also your concern about the kings of Saudi Arabia are shared by most Muslims and non-Muslims alike - all over the world. No one from the common stock can ever like hereditary autocracy. The way common man is dying on the streets of middle-east and the more ferocious way the common man may die in future (God forbid) are testimony enough that these Arab elites are not welcome. But to dislodge a Ruling Elite, especially those supported by foreign forces is not an easy thing. Just see what is happening in Syria. Besides divide and rule has always been the policy of rulers and will always be. That is why it has been stated that ‘eternal vigilance is the price of liberty’. We cannot be complacent even in India. There is no such thing as a permanent settlement. Now to the general question. A commentary (I think Tashreeh is the Urdu word for this) is certainly to be seen in the sense of demonstration by deed, or explanation of the details by statements, both of which are recorded in Hadiths in the matter of explaining Islam and Quran by the Prophet(PBUH). To hammer the point once more let me suggest that commentary has a sense of continuity, it emanates from somewhere (and proceeds to somewhere). If today we have to write (or apply) a commentary or an explanation or an understanding of Islam (each one of us separately in the scheme of Janab Mohiyuddin sb), then also we have to look to the prior commentaries which are linked back together right to the Hadiths and Quran. In the light of fresh inputs the comments make a departure from time to time but there is never a wholesale rejection of the past comments and the departure is also rationally explained. However, I think Mr. Mohiyuddin sb’s views are of the toggle mode wherein, the demonstration or the explanation of the seventh century is just not acceptable to him. I think there is a communication gap because I clearly fail to understand the essential point he wants to convey. Personally I have reached the stage of proving 2 plus 2 equal to 4, in my argument, so I do not know what further logic can I advance except to repeat my own sentences.
Therefore I think, here is the place, we should part now on this issue, with a double handshake . But, before that I must refer to “setting up the Prophet as a Partner of God” clause. I am stunned, surprised and humoured to read this, especially in the course of discussions with me (whose position is well-known through the thousands of pages I have written on New Age Islam alone). Well Janab Mohiyuddin sb, I join you in repeating that we as Muslims will never set up the Prophet as a Partner of God (not to speak of much lesser beings or objects), in case you need my reiteration of this fundamental statement.
@Ghulam Sb: Here, in term of Ahadith to the description of Quran, commentary doesn't mean , I think - better knows the writer, ball-to-ball commentary of IPL matches. Even the commentary of World Cup cricket final match in 1983 is still preserved or at least the concerning country India has safeguarded as it describes an important victory of India. Likewise, to demonstrate the eternity and universality of Qur'an Kareem's theories, Allah sent Rasool-e-Akram (saw) to prove its application in life.
So, I think, commentary means demonstration here, the Almighty Allah sent the prophet (saw) for our guidance by showing the righteous way by putting Qur'an into practice to shun off any grunt by the mankind in future. The life lived according to Qur'an Kareem in the light of Ahadith will be successful and counted as the only group that will be triumphant on the Day of Judgement as pointed out by our dear Rasool-e-Pak (saw) in the following assertion. "The Jews were divided into seventy-one sects; the christians were divided into seventy-two sects, and my followers will be divided into seventy-three sects, which all will be (punished) in Hell-fire with the exception of one". When the companions (mAllahbpwth) asked the prophet (saw) to identify that sect, he (saw) replied, "Those who are upon that which my companions and I follow". May Allah Kareem leads us to the righteous path.
Well, please permit me to attempt to explain the use of Hadiths, in the matter of understanding the holy Quran. Sunnah or Hadiths (from my angle of view, the two words can be used synonymously, though to explain the contexts understanding the difference helps from academic viewpoint) as source of Sharia can be dispensed with only at great cost to Muslim society - and quite needlessly.A precise word or sentence can be explained, only by a more detailed set of sentences.
A more voluminous commentary is needed to explain a precisely worded principle of law. In purely academic sense, Sunnah or Hadiths can be defined as the commentary of Quran by the prophet himself. If we question the validity of a TRUE Hadith as a matter of principle, we miss out seriously on the second part of the first kalima “Muhmmadur Rasul Allah”. The question will arise, what sort of Prophet (PBUH) is he whose commentary of the Word of Allah, which was received as wahi by none but him, is not acceptable to his followers? If his commentary is not acceptable then nobody’s commentary can ever be accepted. Manzoorul Haque and Mohiyuddin Saheb and all of us here are law unto ourselves, our authority being Quran, and Quran alone (as each one of us understands).
To hell with the government of the day that has applied the laws with reference to its own understanding of Quran, to hell with the courts of law that apply the principles of Quran according their own stupid (can I use this rather popular word) understanding . And since this type of stance tends to loosen us away from the social control, a little bit of intoxication (of ideology) may also be not out of joint. The real question to be asked is “how do I know that these words were actually uttered by the prophet, and are not interpolations – worse still interpolations done by the by inimical forces, like the hidden munafiqeens? So, what is the solution? We have to apply the methodology of history. And sure enough one such methodology was applied by the Hadiths compilers.
There is reason to believe that the ruling elites of the day were seized with the necessity to compile Hadiths and quiet competent hands must have been commissioned to compile Hadiths and they must tried hard to collect information on oath. However, the loss of communication is a scientific reality (many experiments have proved it) and in the circumstances where information is passed through two or three hands the loss can be colossal.
I like to think optimistically and I give great credit to the Muslims of those days who were obviously quite truthful lot, so that only 10% (at the most perhaps) of Hadiths contradict the words of Quran as pointed out by Dr. Shabbir Ahmad. We still have 90% of Hadiths which are harmoniously explanatory of the tenets of Quran. Our cardinal search should be to see if a clause of the so-called Hadiths contradicts a clear principle of Quran. In that case, I am sad to say that the particular clause of Hadith must fail – and our presumption that the Prophet of Islam must never have said or done such a thing as to contradict the holy Quran must be deemed a valid presumption.
But, I will still not call the compiler of such a Hadith, a criminal, because firstly to err is human and in the chain of narrators anyone might have erred, and secondly the compilers have only compiled according to the methodology developed and accepted by all, at that point of time, and have left their validity to be examined by the future generations, such as ours. There was reason to believe (as is human wont, which can even be seen on this website) some narrators, out sheer love of their religion, must have insisted (and possibly with a connection to Ruler of the day) that their version of Hadiths be also included.Ladies and gentlemen, we have to learn to live with our legacy with our eyes wide open. (shortly, Insha Allah I shall be posting my comments on the postings of Mr.Zuma)PS: Website administrator to please attend. It takes two to three attempts to post.
Dear Sir Mr. Raihan Nezami, may I request you to please substantiate that I have condemned Islam as it is a serious charge. Also, it is not clear whether you mean to say that I have insulted those Islamic scholars who insult Prophet SAW, or you have simply joined the two ideas, where you meant to say that I have insulted Islamic scholars and also Prophet SAW. I make out that you meant the latter case and would like to know where I have insulted Prophet SAW. As for Islamic scholars, I do not consider Dr. Zakir Nayak’s kinds as one. My points of disagreement with his scholarship are clearly mentioned over here on the pages of New Age Islam and I am under no obligation to honour him more than I honour you.
About Mullahs, are not the un-intellectual Mullahs considering themselves all those blah blahs and doing the same? Since you cannot see Dr. Zakir Nayak doing so, you are free to live under the impression that you have. Later you said: “You, who dont have time for Namaz”. Sir, I have clearly warned you from assuming things, yet you are doing exactly that. Since Shirk Parast as you apparently are with that particular usage of the word ‘Shirk’, can you point out the ‘decree’ that I have given that Allah will or will not be pleased with your rituals? Of course, I am not important and your rituals should never be to please me, but it should also be not to please your community and society who give thumbs up to you for your being particular about rituals. Perform rituals as much as you like, to your fill, so that with that much you can hope to please Allah and I am not the one to ask anyone for doing or not doing it. But please do not carry a sense of superiority on that basis. About your: “many true scholars, (please name them so that I too identify, whom you consider as true scholar) have told you on this forum that judgement is the authority of Allah only that will be delivered on the Roz-e-Mahshar”, I wonder what is the issue as even I agree to this, so there is nothing like I am ‘told’. But when you say “People like you don't pay heed to anyone and keep condemning others that comes in the category of "Gheebah". Let me tell you Sir that, Gheebah is when anyone does it in concealed way. If I speak about you out of this forum, such things, which you may not like then it is Gheebah. But I am openly condemning and substantiating it. Personally, I consider Gheebah a more damaging crime than ‘shirk’ -the usual understanding of ‘shirk’ that Shirk Parasts have, and my personal records are there to be ratified for those who know me personally. Of course I have no proof here. And lastly, Sir, thanks for your wise words of caution. And yes, please do not read anything more into this statement. I really mean it. I have no disagreement on this, but my disagreements are clearly on ‘why (you) speak less (in fact you do not speak at all) on very important topics’ and you are only nitpicking on non-issues like about the usage of ‘common-sense’ or addition of ‘SAW’. One should always use ‘common sense’ and add ‘SAW’ if one is Muslims and speaks about our beloved Prophet. The important topic, however, that you give a miss is about Saud’s declaration of ‘divine rights’ as custodian of two Holy Places, then Dr. Zakir Nayak’s mischief of insulting others (By the way, he matches my skill, if not excel more than me), and yet another topic about the poor record of Muslim countries/majority population in safeguarding Non-Muslims interest and their ways of understanding ‘Allah’ whom they call Bhagwan or God added or deleted with some frills from whom we know as Allah. My question to you are: Are Non-Muslims not having Huqooq-al-Ibaad? And haven’t you used the word ‘stupid’ for the writings of Mr. Gulam Mohiyuddin, and haven’t you been impolite in describing West or Jansanghi? How can then a pot call a kettle, black? If you see my last text, I have clearly mentioned in the very beginning that I am not here for such ‘common-sense’. You have been impolite to people whom you have disagreed, and check your words for Satwa, and so I am impolite whom I disagree with. But generally speaking, there are people who are causing blasphemy by their acts of supporting crimes against humanity, and then these very people stops others from using impolite language. Have you found anywhere, my impolite language for Prophet SAW? No, you cannot find it. But surely I have used the language that I know works for me to indicate my disagreements with those whom I saw propagating ideas inconsistent with Islam. My language is not the language of hypocrites- those who are not fools but very wise to appear polite and decent and wear a skin of sheep, but are jackals in real; who are supremacists and cannot see their own flaws. Can you mention 10 points which you see as flaws in yourself?
So you agree that you do not have common sense Dear Mr. Raihan Nezami Sir? And then you mean you are not the one to claim of having it? Well, upto you. But then do not ask anybody including me any question regarding my common sense as this is not what I am here for nor can I hope to have it from you; more so when you agree about not having it.
You cannot find faults in the assertion of Zuma who accepts as right, the wrongs in Bukhari as mentioned in Dr. Shabbirs article and over it you are confronting the words which are written with the intention to cleanse away all such wrongs that have been inserted by enemies of Islam from time to time.
The enemies were fools, if not hypocrites, and hypocrites if not Non-Muslims. But you choose to close your eyes just because you fear that the images of whom you revere apart from Prophet SAW and Quran, will get tarnished and these images will not be able to fight back successfully with facts and logic. Our Prophet's SAW biography is able to successfully defend his actions. All those biographies which defends his action we find it coherent and correct. Such biographies which were written by fools and hypocrites and Non-Muslims, we consider it trash. Yes trash. Did you get it properly? And similarly, Quran is able to defend itself with the reasoning therein and only those writings which are coherent with it is acceptable while rest all foolish examples and writings cannot be related to Allah's words and His Divine Wisdom.
I as a Muslim (and then you will use my words to say, where is the thermometer to insert in me and check whether I am a Muslim or sufficiently Muslim or not) cannot accept any fools to make me understand Islam. My respect for Prophet Muhammed SAW and understanding of Quran doesn't need to bear with foolish arguments however packaged to support Islam.
I have been observing you. You do not have words of condemnation for the evil, and you know whom I am referring to, but you have the brilliance of nitpicking in the writings against evil. Of course you can say, you do not consider that as evil, which I consider, then I have no choice but to condemn you too along with the ‘images’ you revere apart from the essential two beside all those evils whom you include in your list of essentials.
And lastly, please for Allah’s sake do not assume that with all your rituals, you are doing any favour to me or to anybody or even Allah. You are doing it, well fine. If you are not doing it, Allah may forgive you. Rituals are not hedges to save you from Allah’s sense of judgment that why you could not stand up for saying what was right and what was wrong. You may not have guts then to reply back, that you did not consider all that wrong; rather you mistook all the wrongs for right.
Though Quran does not mention that a woman was created from the rib, it also does not object to the idea that a woman was created from it initially. As Quran does not mention that woman was not created from the rib, I find it that there is no problem or contradiction to accept what Hadith mentions that woman was created from the rib as mentioned in Bukhari, Beginning of Creation 2:251.
Unless Quran opposes Hadith and mentioned that woman was not created from the rib, it is then rational for Muslims to mention that Hadith contradicts the teaching of Quran.
At the outset, please know that a great scholar of Islam, Ubaidullah Sindhi concedes, "I cannot teach Bukhari hadith to any youngster, or to a non-Muslim because of shame" (Preface to Ilham-ur-Rahman). Let’s explore why he said this…
What is your criterion to prefer Ubaidullah Sindhi over great scholars and prophets and Imams?
He could not even shun his origin “Sindhi” and you quote him to belittle great scholars?
Mahmood bin Rabe narrates, “I still remember when I was five years old, the Holy Prophet rinsed his mouth and then poured the water into mine” (Kitabul Ilm vol.2, hadith 77). Could the Exalted Prophet hold any human being at that level of inferiority?
Even your reference is incorrect, see the correct narration as under:
“Volume 1, Book 3, Number 77:
Narrated Mahmud bin Rabi'a:
When I was a boy of five, I remember, the Prophet took water from a bucket (used for getting water out of a well) with his mouth and threw it on my face. “
“Rinsing and pouring in the mouth of child”—was not there.
Kitabul Ilm ahadith 91, 92, 93 states: The Prophet’s cheeks turned red, his face became red with anger . . . and so on. This statement is absolutely at variance with the Prophet’s character, and appears to have been fabricated to defame him. This is only one of the hundreds of such narratives that portray him to be a man of temper. The Holy Prophet, in fact, was a cool-minded person with exceptional self-control.
Observation is out of context. Read these narrations and you will know that anger was not for a personal matter. It was about morality questions about which replies were given. The Holy Prophet was no doubt merciful and very calm , but anger on his face told the seriousness of the question [ one involved finding goods of another person and making use of them by the finding man without permission of the owner]
Prophet Solomon boasted that he would impregnate one hundred women in one night, but only one woman became pregnant and gave birth to a half-formed child (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:110). This tragedy is reported elsewhere to have occurred because Solomon did not say "Insha-Allah” before going to his hundred wives.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 169:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
(The Prophet) Solomon son of (the Prophet) David said, "Tonight I will go round (i.e. have sexual relations with) one hundred women (my wives) everyone of whom will deliver a male child who will fight in Allah's Cause." On that an Angel said to him, "Say: 'If Allah will.' " But Solomon did not say it and forgot to say it. Then he had sexual relations with them but none of them delivered any child except one who delivered a half person. The Prophet said, "If Solomon had said: 'If Allah will,' Allah would have fulfilled his (above) desire and that saying would have made him more hopeful."
Don’t write from yourself ipes dixit.
The (Exalted) Messenger used to visit all nine of his wives every night (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:52). On the other hand, Bukhari repeatedly narrates that the Holy Prophet used to stand at prayers all night. So much so that his feet used to swell.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 6:
The Prophet used to go round (have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night, and he had nine wives.
Where is it written that “Prophet peace be upon him”, said so?
The Holy Messenger used to have intercourse with all of his wives in one hour of the day and night (without taking a bath) and these (wives) were eleven. The narrator tries to preempt an objection by stating that he (the Holy Prophet) had the (sexual) power of 30 men (Bukhari, Book of Bath 1:189). The Mulla mind has so terribly affected our masses that even derogatory statements such as this become praiseworthy. The Holy Prophet was a perfect guide to humanity. He was not a man of unbridled desire. The women who lived in his household were primarily there for shelter. Only a contemptuous mind can perceive the Mothers of Believers as objects of pleasure for the Prophet. Bukhari highlights the above hadith by putting a special heading: “to have sex with many women with only one bath.”
Volume 1, Book 5, Number 268:
Anas bin Malik said, "The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number." I asked Anas, "Had the Prophet the strength for it?" Anas replied, "We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men)." And Sa'id said on the authority of Qatada that Anas had told him about nine wives only (not eleven).
Volume 1, Book 5, Number 270:
Narrated Muhammad bin Al-Muntathir:
on the authority of his father that he had asked 'Aisha about the saying of Ibn 'Umar(i.e. he did not like to be a Muhrim while the smell of scent was still coming from his body). 'Aisha said, "I scented Allah's Apostle and he went round (had sexual intercourse with) all his wives, and in the morning he was Muhrim (after taking a bath)."
See the subtle difference and you will realize falsity of your inference.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 52:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah and Salama bin Al-Akwa':
While we were in an army, Allah's Apostle came to us and said, "You have been allowed to do the Mut'a (marriage), so do it." Salama bin Al-Akwa' said: Allah's Apostle's said, "If a man and a woman agree (to marry temporarily), their marriage should last for three nights, and if they like to continue, they can do so; and if they want to separate, they can do so." I do not know whether that was only for us or for all the people in general. Abu Abdullah (Al-Bukhari) said: 'Ali made it clear that the Prophet said, "The Mut'a marriage has been cancelled (made unlawful)."
The Prophet said that the best man amongst his followers is the one who has the greatest number of wives (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:52). The Qur'an (49:13) tells us that the best person is the one who is best in conduct.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 7:
Narrated Said bin Jubair:
Ibn 'Abbas asked me, "Are you married?" I replied, "No." He said, "Marry, for the best person of this (Muslim) nation (i.e., Muhammad) of all other Muslims, had the largest number of wives."
The Holy Prophet asked, “Who will buy this slave from me?” Hazrat Naeem bought him for 800 Darham (Bukhari, Kitabul Ikrah p.669). Did the Prophet sell slaves?!
Volume 3, Book 34, Number 351:
Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:
A man decided that a slave of his would be manumitted after his death and later on he was in need of money, so the Prophet took the slave and said, "Who will buy this slave from me?" Nu'aim bin 'Abdullah bought him for such and such price and the Prophet gave him the slave.
See the Prophet’s
Aisha said to the Prophet, “Won’t you rather graze your camel onto a tree whose leaves have not yet been grazed?” Arwa bin Zubair said that Aisha meant she was the only virgin the Prophet had married (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:55).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 14:
Narrated 'Aisha :
I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Suppose you landed in a valley where there is a tree of which something has been eaten and then you found trees of which nothing has been eaten, of which tree would you let your camel graze?" He said, "(I will let my camel graze) of the one of which nothing has been eaten before." (The sub-narrator added: 'Aisha meant that Allah's Apostle had not married a virgin besides herself.)
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 17:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
When I got married, Allah's Apostle said to me, "What type of lady have you married?" I replied, "I have married a matron' He said, "Why, don't you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?" Jabir also said: Allah's Apostle said, "Why didn't you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?'
Hazrat Ali stated that he suffered from “jiryan” (drainage of prostate secretions) constantly (Bukhari, Kitabul Ilm p.150). This fictitious condition is widely believed in the East to take away manhood completely. Someone is trying to dishonor the great mujahid of Islam.
The sun rises between the two antlers of Satan (Bukhari 2:134).
Volume 1, Book 3, Number 134:
I used to get the emotional urethral discharge frequently so I requested Al-Miqdad to ask the Prophet about it. Al-Miqdad asked him and he replied, "One has to perform ablution (after it)." (See Hadith No. 269).
Don’t try to be a doctor yourself by wrong diagnosis. Allah’s Prophet has given a very pertinent advice and guidance for patients of this condition, may it be your so called Jiryan or not.
Prophet Abraham lied three times (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:57). After insulting the Patriarch of Faith, the narrator goes on to justify the accusation with lame arguments.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 21:
The Prophet said: Abraham did not tell lies except three. (One of them was) when Abraham passed by a tyrant and (his wife) Sara was accompanying him (Abu Huraira then mentioned the whole narration and said:) (The tyrant) gave her Hajar. Sara said, "Allah saved me from the hands of the Kafir (i.e. infidel) and gave me Hajar to serve me." (Abu Huraira added:) That (Hajar) is your mother, O Banu Ma'-As-Sama' (i.e., the Arabs).
What was the lie? Weak tradition. No need to believe such tradition because it is against Quran.
After the fall of Khyber, people described the beauty of Safia Bint Hui, the new bride of a slain enemy soldier. The Prophet chose her for himself. On the way to Madina he stopped and had intercourse with her. His companions did not know if she was a wife or a concubine. Later, a veil was drawn between her and the men-folk and they came to know that she was a wife (Bukhari, Book of Sales and Book of Nikah 3:59). Elsewhere, the narrator of the wicked story states that Safia was initially given to Wahia Kulbi, but because of her beauty, the Prophet chose her for himself, and asked Wahia to pick another woman. An important reminder: The Qur'an (47:4) ordains that prisoners of war are to be freed either for ransom or as an act of kindness. There is no third option. How could the Prophet and his holy companions enslave human beings?
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 89:
The Prophet stayed for three days at a place between Khaibar and Medina, and there he consummated his marriage with Safiyya bint Huyay. I invited the Muslims to a banquet which included neither meat nor bread. The Prophet ordered for the leather dining sheets to be spread, and then dates, dried yogurt and butter were provided over it, and that was the Walima (banquet) of the Prophet. The Muslims asked whether Safiyya would be considered as his wife or as a slave girl of what his right hands possessed. Then they said, "If the Prophet screens her from the people, then she Is the Prophet's wife but if he does not screen her, then she is a slave girl." So when the Prophet proceeded, he made a place for her (on the camel) behind him and screened her from people.
From where did you get the impression that He enslaved her?
Don’t misquote and misinterpret. Do not become yourself criminal of Islam.
The Prophet said, “Bad luck, misfortune and doom can exist in a wife, a home and a horse” (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:60).
“After my time, the greatest tribulation for men will be women” (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:61).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 32:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
Allah's Apostle said, "If at all there is bad omen, it is in the horse, the woman, and the house."
Do you think it degradation? Why?
Understand what is its meaning? Even where you live , it is famous that man commits crime/sins mostly for “ zan, zar, zameen”
It is not degradation, it is men’s attraction for women which has been warned (not to be “
The Prophet said to a man, "I make you the owner of this woman because you can recite some Surahs of the Qur'an" (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:69).
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 58:
A woman came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! I have come to you to present myself to you (for marriage)." Allah's Apostle glanced at her. He looked at her carefully and fixed his glance on her and then lowered his head. When the lady saw that he did not say anything, she sat down. A man from his companions got up and said, "O Allah's Apostle! If you are not in need of her, then marry her to me." The Prophet said, "Have you got anything to offer." The man said, 'No, by Allah, O Allah's Apostle!" The Prophet said (to him), "Go to your family and try to find something." So the man went and returned, saying, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Apostle! I have not found anything." The Prophet said, "Go again and look for something, even if it were an iron ring." He went and returned, saying, "No, by Allah, O Allah's Apostle! I could not find even an iron ring, but this is my Izar (waist sheet).' He had no Rida (upper garment). He added, "I give half of it to her." Allah's Apostle said "What will she do with your Izar? If you wear it, she will have nothing over herself thereof (will be naked); and if she wears it, then you will have nothing over yourself thereof ' So the man sat for a long period and then got up (to leave). When Allah's Apostle saw him leaving, he ordered that he e called back. When he came, the Prophet asked (him), "How much of the Qur'an do you know (by heart)?" The man replied, I know such Sura and such Sura and such Sura," naming the suras. The Prophet said, "Can you recite it by heart?" He said, 'Yes." The Prophet said, "Go I let you marry her for what you know of the Quran (as her Mahr).
See the actual narration and that misquoted by you. You will appreciate it was not ownership transfer! It was “ I let you marry her for what you know of the Quran (as her Mahr).
What was degradation of women?
“A woman presented herself to the Prophet. He intently gazed at her from head to toe and then lowered his head” (meaning she did not interest him) (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:71).
Same as above.
When the Prophet married Aisha, she was 6 years old, and the marriage was consummated when she was 9 (and he was 54) (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:75). On the other hand, the Qur'an ties marriage to adulthood and mental maturity by declaring marriage a solemn covenant (4:21). There is strong historical evidence contrary to Bukhari, but our Mulla loves nothing but trash of this kind. The Holy Prophet never did anything against the Qur’an. “His character was the Qur’an,” (Hazrat Aisha).
Do not try to compare the Holy Prophet with yourself or other men. He was allowed to marry more than four women? Is it not ordained in Quran not to exceed four women in marriage? But it was not for the Prophet. There the reasons were different. Why are you so much influenced by western values?
Have you not read the concept of Wali in connection with marriage?
I saw that most of those entering the gate of hellfire were women (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:97).
It is not degradation, it is warning to be pious.
Fitna (tribulation) is in the East (Bukhari, Book of Talaq 3:132). We seriously doubt that the Holy Prophet, called the “mercy for the worlds” by Allah, could confine his vision to East or West.
Volume 7, Book 63, Number 217:
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
I heard the Prophet saying, "Afflictions will emerge from here," pointing towards the East.
See you have changed the meaning!
Aisha said to the Prophet, “Ah! My head is bursting.” He said, “I wish it did.” Aisha responded: “You want me to die so that you can spend the next night with another wife” (Bukhari, Book of Medicine, vol.3).
Where is this Tradition. I searched it and not found.
Run from the leper as you run from the lion (Bukhari, Book of Medicine 3:259). Against this see the contradiction in several sources: “There is no such thing as a contagious disease.”
Volume 7, Book 71, Number 608:
Allah's Apostle said, '(There is) no 'Adwa (no contagious disease is conveyed without Allah's permission). nor is there any bad omen (from birds), nor is there any Hamah, nor is there any bad omen in the month of Safar, and one should run away from the leper as one runs away from a lion ''
Where is contradiction?
Some people got sick in Madina. The Prophet advised them to drink camel's urine and milk. After they became well, they killed a shepherd. The Prophet ordered that their hands and feet be chopped off and their eyes enucleated. They were laid on burning sand. When they asked for water it was denied them. So much so that they tasted sand until they died (Kitabul Mahrabain and Kitabut Tib p.254). Dear Reader, could the compassionate and merciful Prophet order torture on human beings? Is it possible that the narrator of this hadith wants to portray the Holy Prophet as barbaric? Could this narrator be a true Muslim?
What is authenticity of this Book?
I have not found in Bukhari Shareef.
Some Muslims sided with Mushrikeen and idolaters and invited them to attack the Prophet! (Kitabul Fatan 3:723). The Qur’an mentions all of the Holy companions as staunch believers (8:74) with whom Allah was pleased (9:100).

The Characterization of the fire of Hotama by the Quran the exact characterization of the atomic energy. The causes thereof are the characteristics of atomism.
By Allama Muhammad Yousuf Gabriel
The Quran has characterized Al-Hotama that is the fire of Hotamic hell, describing its distinctive and distinguishing characteristics such as differentiate it from other types of hell-fire. These characteristic features of Al-Hotama are the characteristic features of atomic energy. So also are the causes of the punishment in Al-Hotama as given out by the Quran the causes of the appearance of the atomic energy. These are the basic characteristics of the modern Baconian philosophy of atomism.
The atomic hell of this world, namely the atomic bombs and the atomic radiations may be regarded as the temporal representation of the Hotama of the next eternal world. Justas the ordinary fire is the representation of the hell in general and so also is garden the representation of the paradise. This discovery is my own exclusively. None in the world knew. The work on it entirely, ranging over thirteen hundred pages is my own exclusively. No doubt due to the exclusive grace of Allah it has all been. Let the scientist and the philosopher come now forward and judge and wonder at the all-pervading knowledge of the divine author of the Quran and give appreciation in the name of truth and knowledge. What is a miracle if not the scientific description of the nuclear phenomena in the clear perspective of the modern Baconian philosophy of atomism fourteen centuries ago in an age of no science. Show gratitude and awake to the occasion if you are concerned about the existence of this world or its peace and prosperity. Following is the text of the Prophecy of the Quran about al-Hotama.
“Woe to every backbiter, defamer, who amasseth the wealth (of this world) and arrangeteh it (against the future). He thinketh that his wealth will render him immortal. Nay, for verily he will be cast into Al-Hotmaa. And what could tech thee what alhotama is? It is fire of Allah enkindled, which leaps up onto the hearts. It is (afire) closed in on them in outstretched columns”.
Science of Nuclear Phenomena:-
The characteristics of the fire of Al-Hotama are :-
[if !supportLists]-->(i) Hotatama. Hotama means crusher, breaker.
ii) (endif]That it leaps up onto the hearts.
[if !supportLists](iii)[endif]That it has encompassing features.
[if !supportLists] (iv) [endif]That it raises columns.
All the four are the exact characteristics of atomic energy. We will treat them one by one.
(I) Quran says: “ Hotama”. Hotama means crusher, breaker. This must recall to the mind of he atomist the germantrer, Bremmstrahlung, coined for the continuous spectrum of rays, and literally meaning the breaking radiation. Hotama is a descriptive noun formed from the root-verb Hatama, which means to break something to pieces. Hotama thus means a crusher, a breaker. And so also the atomic energy too is a crusher, a breaker.
(1) Atomic energy is generated by the crushing the binding of the atomic nucleus, the binding which keeps the nucleons of the nucleus closely packed together. No other type of energy is generated in this manner and thus it is the distinguishing characteristic of the atomic energy. Further the atomic energy disintegrates the atomic nucleus without any possibility of the reproduction of the disintegrated nucleus either by rearranging the nucleons in their original order or by reproducing the nucleus by some method of synthesis. The atomic radiation breaks the chromosomes of the cell nucleus, also without any means of repair of the broken chromosomes. And thus because atomic energy crushes the basic structure of the basic building block of the universe, that is atom, as well as the basic unit of life, that is cell without any hope of their restitution, the atomic energy could be termed as the absolute crusher. This again is the distinguishing characteristics of atomic energy. Substances consumed by the chemical a fire can be reproduced by some method of synthesis. The chemical energy leaves the atomic nuclei untouched and intact.
(2) All the three manifestations of the atomic bomb explosion, namely, the heat-flash, the blast and the radiations are crushers in a degree and extent greater than the conventional bomb explosion.
(3) Atomic radiations crush the atomic nuclei in inanimate matter and cause transmutations, while in the living body they eject nucleons from the atomic nuclei and they attack the cell nucleus and break the chromosomes.
(4) The terminology of the atomic physics is indicative of the crushing trait of atomic energy actions, and the standard text books of atomic physics are found to be replete with the phrases like, bombarding, crashing, smashing, hitting, colliding, breaking etc. while describing the actions of the atomic energy. Similarly the terminology of radio-biology is indicative of the crushing trait of radiations. Terms like, the target concept, direct-action, indirect action, and similes like snapping the cable with a bullet , and the sentences like, radiations hit the cells like sledge hammer and crush them, in the description of the actions of radiations, produce sufficient evidence touching the crushing trait of the atomic energy, and the realization of the radiologist thereof.
(II) The Quran says. “Hotama is a fire which leaps up on to the hearts”. And so does atomic energy.
[if !supportLists][endif]-->In the fission process of atomic energy generation, the atomic particles, which are fire, leap up onto the atomic nuclei. In fusion process of atomic energy generation, the heat produced by the inner fission device is directed on to the atomic nuclei of the fusile material. The Quran has used the word heart, where as the scientist has appropriated the word nucleus. These two words are synonymous. We need no exertions to prove the identity between these two words. The authority of the scientist himself is thereto proving the point. The most conservatively standard textbooks of atomic physics call the nucleus as the heart. We will quote but two example:-
[if !supportLists](a) [endif]“Each fast particle comes from the break up of the very heart of a single atom…the nucleus…of the radioactive material”. (Vide: Physics, Physical Science study committee””. second edition…D.C. Heath and Company Lexington, Massachusetts July 1965. Page 130)
[if !supportLists]) “How many nuclear heart-beats are in the life-time of a radioactive nucleus which lasts but billionth of a second”.
[if !supportLists]a. Short Problems)
Atomic radiations and the heart:-
The actions of atomic radiations take place within the nuclei that is hearts. In inanimate matter they attack the atomic nuclei and cause atomic transmutations. In the living body they attack the atomic nuclei and eject the nucleons from them. Also they attack the nuclei of the cells and break the chromosomes. The radiations affect the function of the coordination at the level where it is beyond the control of the brain, to mean that they attack at the level of the very heart of life itself. The exceptional attraction of radiations for all that is related to heart in any way in the body has been observed. Bone-marrow and all the blood-forming organs are more sensitive to radiation than the Brian, the nerves and the muscles. All the multi-cellular organisms are more sensitive to the effect of radiation than all the unicellular organisms. This may be ascribed to the fact that the multi-cellular organisms are possessed of more elaborate circulatory and respiratory systems than the unicellular organisms. The action of radiation is retarded in the absence of oxygen. Now the relation of bone-marrow, blood-forming organs, circulatory and respiratory systems, and oxygen to the heart is well-known through blood. They are all blood relations.
[if !supportLists]-->(1)[endif]-->The atomic energy thus can be termed as the nuclear and the thermonuclear crusher, Justas Al-Hotama is. It has to be observed that the atomic energy more properly is the nuclear energy, and the leaping up on to the hearts distinguishing characteristic too.
[if !supportLists](2)[endif]-->“To let a creed built in the heart of things
Dissolved before a twinkling atomy”.
This little couplet of Wordsworth to be found in his “Excursions” represents our point in the best of manners. We could now say:-
“To let a world built on the nuclear system
Dissolve before a tempting energy”.
(III) The Quran says : “Hotama" is a fire closed in on them”. The atomic energy has encompassing features too. The inverted cauldron like atomic bomb explosions with extensive enclosures of radioactive fallout, and the global fallout of the megaton thermonuclear bomb, the extreme tenacity of the bone-seeking radioactive substances in the bones even after patient’s death, at the appearance of cancers from six to thirty years after actual exposure to radiation, the appearance of the effects of radiation in anaphase although the attack of radiation on cell has been in its resting stage, the encompassment of whole body by radiation inspite of the irradiation of one organ only. The survival of the lethally irradiated frogs for moths instead of the usual time interval of three to six weeks if kept in a dormant state in a temperature just above the freezing point, and the sudden appearance of radiation symptoms in case he cooled frogs are warmed up, the suggestion of Alexander Haddow that the cancer-producing action of the cancer-producing substances maybe the result of prolonged interference with normal growth, and particularly the feature of encompassing the mankind, the animal species and the plants to future generation through radio-genetic effects, encompassing this earth after having made life on it extinct to millions of years according to the half-life of the radioactive substances are the features which be speak the encompassing trait of atomic radiation.
(VI) The Quran says : Outstretched coulumns”.
The outstretched column has become a symbolical feature of the atomic bomb explosion. And it is not only the atomic bomb explosion that raises a column. The columns in the invisible world of radioactive atomic particles too can be calculated. Rather the world of the radioactive particles is a world of columns. So un-proportionally high are the jumps of the atomic particles in comparison to the rise, that according to the general standards observable in the visible world they maybe justly termed as columns. The Alpha-particle that has jumped to a height of found centimeters has risen to a height millions of millions of times its own diameter. A foot—ball or a shell rising in such a proportion to its own size would rise to heights far into the outer space. The two hundred years travel of the gamma rays in air means something unimaginaeably large. Even a neutron during the fission chain reaction rising from one nucleus to another has traversed a distance more than ten thousand times its own diameter, and if left unchecked by the absorbing nucleus, it would travel greater distances. The milli9ons of miles high columns of the cosmic rays coming from the outer space to earth would complete the picture.
(V)A description of the hell of Al-Hotama by the Holy Prophet (Peace be Upon him) of Islam. The Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) said:-
“Allah will send angels equipped with covers of fire, and nails of fire, and columns of fire. They will cover the doomed with covers of fire, and will transfix them with nails of fire, and will stretch the columns of fire upward over them. The entire phenomenon will be made so very air-tight that not a trace of delight will enter from without, nor a trace of agony will escape from within. Allah will forget them on His throne and will out them off from His Mercy. The inmates of paradise will begin to enjoy the boons of Allah .The inmates of hell will cease to cry for help, and speech will come to end. Their speech them will be (as the sound of) inhaling and exhaling”.
(Quoted from Al-Jallalain)
What better description of the atomic bomb explosions phenomenon could be thought of. The covers of fire are the inverted cauldrons of the atomic bomb explosions. The nails of fire are the radiations. The columns are the columns of the atomic bomb explosions.
(VI)The Quran says : “What could teach thee what Al-Hotama is?”.
According to the early interpreters of the Quran this interrogative more here implies the inexpressible terribleness of the phenomenon. To this now in the presence of the atomic hell of this world may be added the complexity of the subject, and the question, “What could teach thee what the phenomena of the nuclear science are like, “could well be put to the nuclear scientist. And surely his answer will be : Nothing.
The Philosophy of Atomism:-
The basic causes of the punishment in Al-Hotama as given out by the Quran are the basic characteristics of the Baconian philosophy of modern atomism and further are the basic causes of the appearance of atomic energy that is the atomic hell on earth.
(I)The Quran says : Woe to every backbiter, defamer”.
Now the habit of backbiting and defaming the doctrine of faith is inherent in the very nature of ancient atomism. The modern atomism too being a philosophy exclusively of this world has in time developed the habit of slander. The rationalism, the criterion of judgment of the modern philosophy of atomism has been perverted, and the spirit of slander has permeated its critical attitude and has tainted it so that the habit of slander has gradually come to pervade every phase of human life. Only the modern slander is of an intellectual turn, and is sophisticated. Mark the change in the original meanings of the word propaganda in the modern age of atomism.
(II) The Quran says : He amasseth wealth of this world and arrangeth it against the future”
Now the whole perspective of this world is before you. See for yourself, if another better description of this present science-guided, machine-ridden, continuous, systematic, ever-increasing and infinite progress based on the Baconian doctrine of man’s dominion over nature for material utility of natural forces as the actual business of man on earth could be expected than the description given above by the Quran.
The Quran says, “He thinketh that his wealth will render him immortal”.
That is he is so over-solicitous about the durability of the material works of this world as if he hoped to live for ever in this world .The solicitude of the modern world about the durability of the monuments of the achievements of science in this universal economico-industiral set up, and the current belief in the continuous increase in riches to he eternity is such as needs no comment.
[if !supportLists] (III) [endif] The Quran says “Nay, for verily he will be cast into Al-Hotama. Both he and his wealth”.
And so thebe Leif in the eternity of the material achievements of this age is based on error. It is as if by magic that all this material set up would perish in the event of atomic war. The atomic radiations in the case of the atomic energy-for-peace would bring about the end a bite slower in a manner of slow decay. the atomic energy that is the mother of the atomic hell, it is well know and it has to be recalled to one’s mind, that the atomic energy has emerged on a particular point in the course of a research of science conducted with the sole object of wealth acquirement and wealth accumulation based on the philosophy of man’s dominion over nature for material benefit, and is the logical and scientific consequence of the Bacocnian philosophy of atomism. The atomism must essentially end in the atomic hell, negating the belief in ever living and rich. The three causes, namely, slander, complete engrossment in wealth accumulation, and a belief in continued eternality of the modern science-guided, atomismistic progress have worked like their three ingredients of gunpowder in producing the atomic fire on most scientific basis, and if the guilt of world love is under-rated by the mankind, no difference will be made to the inexorability of the laws of nature. Inevitable is the force of other laws, the present day mankind is so unbelievably blinded to the facts that despite all the knowledge of the grievous hazards incident on atomic energy, the atomic energy is being adopted.
The circumstances treated by the culture of atomism have rendered this mankind quite helpless in a cage without an exit to escape. Knowing that radiation in any amount is harmful to health and life, and knowing that no protection against radiation is possible to the millions residing in the neighborhood of reactors that have every possibility of exploding any moment to inundate the neighboring districts with deadly, ruinous radiation, and knowing that no sure cure for radiation sickness was discovered and none were in sight and knowing that the radio genetic damage was irreparable and irreversible, and that no means of detecting or destroying the mutated genes existed and that nothing could be done after the mutated genes began to manifest their existence in abnormal births rendering finally this creation in herds of cancer-ridden chimeras to final extinction, the atomic energy were being adopted, the reactors were being madly sought as the only means of the survival of nations , and the scientist, the very scientist who on the one hand did honestly reveal to the world the ruinous aspects of the atomic energy, would on the other hand and at the same time feel himself most conscience clear in this use of atomic energy for peace and giving his heartiest cooperation in the enterprises.
To what then this attitude be ascribed except the inexorable influence of the three causes. And again the scientist instead of conducting his research on atomic energy in his laboratory and coming out with the recommendation of adopting it only after having secured the guarantee of the safety and control of so deadly a force of nature as the atomic energy, should gross violation of the established methodology of science itself, adopt the method of research cum utility in the experiment of a kind so peculiarly and so insidiously dangerous, employing instead of mice and monkeys as the guinea pigs, the species in general, including mankind. The pen shudders, the hand shudders, the mind shudders in describing this indescribable fact. But this experiment needed generations to obtain the results. This universal experiment of atomic energy must ultimately and certainly emerge as ruinous and result in the deadliest doom to bring untold and unheard of miseries and end this creation on earth after a painful spell of existence. Heavens may shudder at such prospect, yet this mankind has been made rppf t every warning and every admonition by the blind influence of the three causes. Do what we may; this present mankind scorns to be led off from the path which it has adopted.
[if!supportLists]-->(IV) [endif] The Quran says. “Hotama is fire of Allah”.
If Hotama is the fire of Allah, the atomic energy too is the fire of retribution appearing as the logical and scientific consequence of three guilts. If no protection is possible from the fire of Allah then surely no protection is possible from the atomic bomb and the atomic radiations. The fire of atomic hell comes sweeping, it kills by heat flash, then by blast and then it chases the unfortunate survivors to their graves.
And the result in the nut shell is that no power on earth can save this mankind from the dreadful doom of the atomic destruction except by removing the causes of the trouble which the Holy scripture has so kindly revealed to a race which is deluded into the belief that more production and still more production to the point of self sufficiency is the remedy of the ills of this age, as if the addition of fuel to the fire could be expected to extinguish the fire.

TRUMPETS THE DOOMSDAY OF THIS SCIEENCE GUIDED BACONIAN CULTURE PROGRESS
By Allama Muhammad Yousuf Gabriel
Fellow humans ! I am destined to greet you with a terrific warning. Tis time now to trumpet the doomsday of this science-guided, Baconian culture of progress. Adopt the "atomic- energy -for -peace", and nuclear annihilation of this world is a certainty. Ban the atomic energy, and the result is the cessation of this economico-industrial set up. Hopes, expectations and optimisms of the scientists and the non-scientists to the contrary are but a dream whose interpretation is a blazing hell of nuclear jehannah. Progress, Atomic Energy and Atomic Bombs are a trinity interlinked. The disappearance of one implies the disappearance of the other two. The Annulment of the Atomic War entails the annulment of Atomic Energy as well as of this Progress. Be not surprised. The flames of Atomic Hell are more surprising.
This modern Progress has its own peculiar and particular features and characteristics. It is a process functioning in accordance with particular laws, and it has its particular stages, and particular results. It is organized, systematic, continuous, ever-increasing and infinite. And it is exclusively a matter of the world. And because it is a matter of the world, and because it is ever-increasing, it must gradually occupy man's mind and time expelling at the same time the thought of the other world. And because it is infinite, it must ultimately expel the thought of the other world completely from man's mind and time. And because faith and revealed religion is based on the other world, the faith and revealed religion thus would be expelled from man's mind and time. It is not difficult to observe this transition. That religion only could allow this sort of progress which was willing to sign the warrant of its own exile. Therefore, either religion or this progress. Men may accept willingly or be helpless to accept a life of Progress without religion. But this culture of modern progress as it is a culture of ultimate ruin. Again it is continuous, ever-increasing, and infinite greed and necessity. Ever-increasing anarchy, endless conflict, burning discontent in an atmosphere of mistrust, distrust, and immorality will ultimately result in a universal war of a race of hungry, enraged cannibals, to mean universal destruction. Are you happy? Again energy is the spirit of this progress. It is in a natural sequence that the chemical, electrical and nuclear energy have appeared in the course of the process of this progress. The fuels of chemical nature having been exhausted in time, the mankind helplessly entangled in the net of economico-industrial set up will be forced to choose between the alternatives, namely, either to adopt atomic energy to atomic ruin or let the economico-industrial set up to freeze with the resulting disastrous famine, transient though. But it will be forced to choose between the alternatives, namely, either to adopt atomic energy to atomic ruin or let the economico- industrial set up it appears that mankind will adopt the course of atomic energy to nuclear ruin. Nuclear ruin or no nuclear ruin. Thus the result of this modern progress is every way the ruin, the universal ruin. Refer to the Prophecy about the Messih-id-Dajaal (Anti-Christ) a Marvel of a Prophecy made by the Holy Prophet of Islam (Peace be upon Him) and you will have no difficulty in finding to your horror, that this Baconian culture 0f modern progress shows every feature which the Prophet of Islam ascribed to the left-eyed, donkey-ridden monster that is the Anti-Christ. This modern science may be regarded as the corollary thereof having the same features. Yet I say not to you that it is the same Massihi-id-Dajaal, though it will destroy this world if it is not destroyed beforehand. This modern progress has grown upon Bacon's Philosophy of modern Atomism, and poor Blake was not amiss when he said" If what Bacon says is right, what Christ says is false". Bacon the greatest benefactor of mankind, may be seen to have done to the posterity of Adam on earth that which the devil had previously done to their progenitor in the paradise. The proof now is no longer a secret. Christ in his first coming had struggled against the ancient atomism of Democritus. If he appears today in his second coming, he will have to struggle against this modern atomism of Bacon.
Given the circumstances as they now prevail, no alternative appears for this mankind but either to vanish under the hails of atomic bombs, suddenly, deservedly, or to perish under the deadly stings of atomic radiations, slowly, lingeringly, miserably in the form of cancer-ridden chimeras in the age of full-fledged atomic-energy-for-peace when every thing from a power-house to a private car will have its own reactor, and the exploding reactors making a world-wide bonfire of radiations, and changing this earth into a vast hospital of radiation sickness, with Governments tottering under economic pressure to indicate the failure of Baconian progress in fulfilling its promises of plenty and self-sufficiency.
This world will see the ultimate futility of America-Russia Peace Treaties, and nuclear deterrence, and freeze on nuclear weapon movements, just as it has seen the futility of the hearty Einstein-Russel appeals in the past. This race of Baconian locusts will not rest till it has reached the zones of nuclear spray. These monuments of science appearingly so formidable and enduring, and this world-wide economico-industrial set up will disappear as if by the touch of a magic wand at the appearance of the atomic bombs, or will be left abandoned along with the habitations of the human race as the memorials of a misguided species, after the extinction of life on earth by the long-term effects of the radiations of the atomic-energy-for-peace.
Remember ! This Atomic Hell is the wrath of God enkindled as retribution, though it is not God that will rain the Atomic Bombs from Heaven. It is man himself that will. You will be surprised if you are told that so severe a punishment is the consequence of evils like Slander, engrossment in the Pursuit of Wealth, and undue Confidence in this Worldly life. Yet the fact is even so. Obviously it is a punishment for this modern progress. And because there is no protection possible against the wrath of God, no protection is possible from this Atomic Hell, that is the Atomic bombs and the Atomic Radiations. Cast away every hope of ever discovering any means of protection from the Atomic bombs or from Atomic Radiations. And I speak this not at haphazard. Nor is this in any way the alarmist view. It is the verdict of matter of fact science, inaudible to those only that are doomed. Terrible though are the effects of radiations though unaccompanied by a fearful blast of the Atomic bomb. Will you understand? Ask the scientist for an answer, if he can show you any cause for hope. Nor has the hope that there will be no Atomic War on any basis. Again to think that this earth will be a place worth living in, after a total or a partial war is a thought which reflects little sagacity. And further to expect that mankind will survive the age of the full-fledged Atomic-Energy-for-Peace, or that, mankind of that age will find that age worth living in an expectation which only is delusion.
It is hard to believe that the whole attention of an age noted distinctly for its scientific research, rational criticism and hair-splitting attitude, the age of origin-seeking Darwin, and the mind-analyst Freud should be exclusively entangled in the fruits of the nuclear problem, utterly, entirely, completely unmindful of the roots. The destruction of the Atomic Weapons could at most be likened to the act of picking up the fruits of a tree in a season. The fruits which will again grow in the next season. It is the root therefore of the tree that has to be stuck at, if the annihilation of the fruit is desired. Believe me the roots of the Nuclear Problem may be found in the soil of Ethics. Science is only an instrument. Unfortunately there has not been an author in this modern age whose attention has been drawn towards this fact on which the solution of entire problem depends. To the basic causes therefore. To the causes, if you intend to solve the nuclear problem. Greed is the root, this progress is the body and the nuclear bomb is the fruit of the tree. Radiation may be regarded as the Nuclear Fragrance. And chant the Christ's Sermon on the Mount to scare the grisly, this fiery giant Atumbumb away. On the other hand, every sage and every ignoramus, of this age is prescribing more production and self-sufficiency as the sole remedy of all the present ills, as if adding fuel to the kiln could extinguish the fire. It is a strange logic and far worse than that of the witch-doctor of the past ages of superstition. Discovering the root-causes of the nuclear problem, and exposing the true reality thereof, and teaching nuclear science to this present mankind which deplorably is ignorant of the subject of nuclear science, the subject on which is now staked the existence and plight of the human species, rather the existence of entire life on earth. The following volumes that are the fruit of my life-long endeavour can serve the purpose well. These are all in English and are all unpublished as yet:-

These fourteen volumes comprise the interpretation and explanation of the Prophecy of the Quran about the atomic hell, that is the Atomic Bombs, and Atomic Radiations and the Hellish atmosphere of the Atomic Culture. The discovery of this Prophecy in the Quran is indeed by the Grace of Almighty Allah my own and known to none in the world, Muslim or a non-Muslim. Just as the discovery of Relativity was the discovery of Einstein himself, and unknown to the scientist or the non-scientist. About 36 words of the Prophecy in all, covering the entire philosophy of modern atomism, and the modern atomic science. The text of the Prophecy is as follows:-
“Woe to every backbiter, defamer, who amasseth wealth (of this world) and arrangeth it (against the future). He thinketh that his wealth will render him immortal. Nay, for verily he will be cast into Al-Hotama. And what could teach thee what Al-Hotama is? It is fire of Allah enkindled which leapeth up unto the hearts. It is (a fire) closed in on them in outstretched columns". (Quran-104-Al-Homaza)
Now let a Philosopher read this prophecy and see for himself, if the description of this modern Baconian, Materialistic Culture of Science-guided Progress as is given by the Quran in a manner so succinct and yet so comprehensive is not really a wonder description. And let the Atomist read the Characterization of the Atomic Phenomenon as appears in this prophecy, and discover for himself how many of the basic, distinctive and distinguishing characteristics of Atomic Phenomenon, the characteristics which distinguish the nuclear phenomenon from the rest of the phenomena, e.g. Chemical, Electrical, and Physical, he can discern and discover for himself in these fourteen words of the Prophecy. I have discerned and discovered therein every distinguishing characteristics of the nuclear phenomenon that science has hitherto discovered, and have recorded in my work. Will this world that now is approaching the brink of its nuclear doom, consider this my claim as a challenge, and will it condescend to examine its validity by reading my work, or is this world doomed to perish in nuclear holocaust, and will therefore persist in its pride of its knowledge, and will regard my work as not worth considering, is not known to me, for the ultimate fate of this earth is known only to God, but what is known to me is that every claim I make is based on factual proofs exactly. It is not possible for me in this brief address to explain the things in detail.
And remember, you will hear in this my address, things that might appear to you as hyperbolic, exaggerative, fulminatory, boisterous, boastful, even rant-like, yet in reality there is no such thing. The facts described therein are in fact too great to avoid the suspicion of hyperbolism. To call a mountain a mountain is not hyperbolic, though to call a little fish a whale, or a little ant a large elephant is indeed exaggerative. Again if it were possible to render hyperbolic the description of the atomic bomb explosion itself, the attempt would have sounded pleasant in the ears of a citizen of an atomic that is super power, yet the same thing might not appear so pleasant to the would-be victims of that bomb. I am destined to deal with a world drunk with the inebriating wine of Progress in such a way that even the description of its ill-effects and its destructive phenomenon is prone to sound hyperbolic in their ears.
Know firstly, that the description of Baconian culture of Progress which this Prophecy of the Quran has given would leave a Russel aghast with wonder, for no better and more exact description of this wealth-accumulating and preplanning process of this modern progressive, and world-loving mankind could be expected in an age fourteen centuries in the past, when no trace of the philosophy of Atomism existed. In the same manner the scientific characterization of the atomic phenomenon, the most modern and the most complex of the phenomena, in about fourteen words ------ a feat not probable even for an Einstein to achieve even in the presence of the atomic science-----given by a scripture fourteen hundred years in the past in an age of no science is a fact not likely to fail in casting the Einstein himself in a reverie. Thus it is though this prophecy of the Quran that a Russel and an Einstein, the greatest intellects of their time would be able to understand the difference and distance that existed between the greatest human intellects and the divine intelligence. If my claim to the characterization of the Nuclear Phenomenon by the Quran fourteen Centuries ago be valid, then what reason remains with the scientist or sceptic to deny the miraculous aspect of this Prophecy of the Quran even though Science itself denied the possibility of the miraculous? And while the Prophecy has given out the slander, and the engrossment in the pursuit of wealth-accumulation, and love of this worldly life as evils,, these are not only not regarded as evil in this age, but are on the other hand regarded as desirable, innocent, guiltless and essential, no doubt the sole object of man's life.
Secondly, that it was not for a Plato or an Aristotle to see or establish a sequential link between the materialistic philosophy of Atomism and the appearance of the Atomic Hell, that is the Atomic bombs and Atomic Radiations, although both these celebrities were them-selves recognized as the most inveterate antagonists of the ancient atomism of Democritus. Surely the Plato and the Aristotle would be thrown aghast with wonder at the discovery of this link which the Prophecy has seen fourteen hundred years before the appearance of the fact. To them also the difference and the distance between the greatest of human intellects and the divine intelligence might clearly appear.
The most useful aspect of the prophecy, however, is the mention of the causes of the appearance of the Atomic Hell. Thereby we see that by the removal of the causes mentioned, and indeed by their removal only, their effects could be removed. To wit that by the removal of this modern progress the danger of nuclear annihilation could be removed. Thus we understand that the destruction of mankind in the nuclear hell is not a decree pre-ordained, but it rather is an affair of condition, and could possibly be avoided. You might be surprised to know that it is the Quran that has in this Prophecy pointed out the causes of the appearance of the Atomic Hell, first time in this world. But you will be surprised even more to learn that no Philosopher in this modern age, this age of scientific research, Philosophical enquiry, critical appreciation, this age of origin-seeking Darwins and Darwinians, hair-splitting Freuds and Freudians, has ever tried to peep into the causes of the nuclear trouble, and no philosophical inquiry whatsoever has ever been conducted to investigate the root-causes of the nuclear fruit. Rather the whole attention of the thoughtful people is engaged on avoiding the atomic war and putting the atomic energy to peaceful purposes. No one has hitherto pointed out that the enquiry of the nuclear problem takes us right into the heart of ethics. In fact no man in this age has ever doubted the correctness of this modern progress and the validity of this Baconian culture. The tree of progress to them is, beneficial, valid, correct. The nuclear problems are only like thorns that could be removed. That is why when every one is hearing the cry of more production and further progress to self-sufficiency as the remedy for all ills, the cry never strikes to anyone that it meant only to add fuel to the kiln in order to extinguish the fire. The necessity actually was to cut the root of the tree. Even Russel saw a paradise of Bliss for this mankind in the course of progress through atomic energy, in case this mankind forgot its quarrels. I have yet another surprise for you, namely, that it is on two points that now the existence and future well-being of this mankind is staked, while on both these scores this mankind of this age of knowledge and science is generally and mostly ignorant. One of these is the root-causes of the nuclear problem, the other of-course is the atomic science. The first that is the causes of the nuclear problem, is known to none except one that is myself, in this entire world of today. The second is known only to the atomists while the entire non-scientist intelligentsia, including the most learned ones is ignorant of the second, that is atomic science. That only the Quran should point out the basic causes of the nuclear trouble to this age is another point to show the difference and the distance between the human intellect and the divine intelligence.
Drastic no-doubt might appear the measure prescribed by the Quran, namely, completely eradication of this modern system of progress to eliminate the danger of nuclear ruin, yet appearing drastic only to a generation steeped knock-deep into the Baconian marsh of this modern progress. A generation inebriated by the wine of wealth and physical comforts, and being helplessly dragged in the net of a universal economico-industrial set up like fish toward the nuclear harbour to be roasted there, along with their children in the nuclear ovens. Drastic indeed, but only until the horrifying squadrons of fiery giant autumbumbs and the pestering swarms of deadly radiations have appeared to consume this world.
The great English philosopher Late Bertrand Russel died in disappointment about the end of this modern mankind. The Gold little pamphlet which he so very kindly sent me in 1964 contained only one sentence which read:-
“Since Adam and Eve ate the apple, man has never abstained from any folly, that he was capable of, and the end is ........ (an exquisite photograph of atomic bomb explosion)."
The pamphlet contained a few caricatures which indicated that war and suppression was the most manifest of human follies in the sight of Russel. My judgment is that even if war is completely abolished from this world in the presence of atomic-energy-for-peace for this progress, this mankind will perish under the stings of radiations in an age of full-fledged atomic-energy-for-peace when from a power-house to the private car everything will have its own reactor, and the exploding reactors will make a universal bonfire of Radiations. Russel died in disappointment, and so would have I, but thanks to this my discovery of the prophecy of the Quran which fostered hope and expectation in my heart, and I produced a work based on the prophecy, that might perhaps save this world from the tragic atomic doom. How dearly do I miss Russel and Einstein. How helpful they would have proved to me by making a due appreciation of my work for the benefit of this world.
There are people who say, well, die we must one day. What difference it would make if by atomic bombs or by atomic radiations. They appear to be mistaken. They not only forget the untold and unheard of miseries that are associated with the nuclear affair, but also they are ignorant of yet another ,extremely horrible fact. They do not know that this nuclear affair is not restricted to this transient world only, but it moves onward, onto the next eternal world, where an eternal atomic hell is lying in wait. This temporal atomic hell of this world is only the replica and the representation of that eternal atomic hell which is in the next eternal world and which is called by the Quran by the name of Hotama in the prophecy under issue. Just as ordinary fire is the representation of the ordinary hell of the next world. We understand that the evils responsible for the appearance of this transient atomic hell, as we can see them, are exactly the same as are mentioned by the prophecy for the punishment in the Hotama of the next world. They therefore who deserved the transient atomic hell of this present world, even if they chanced to escape this atomic hell unscathed to the next world, there they will find the Hotama, the eternal atomic hell awaiting them without any possibility of escape. Also, this mankind now appears apprehensive of the danger of atomic war only, but is ignorant and unmindful of the fact that it even now, in the absence of the atomic war, is in a sort of a hell unfelt due to the hypnotizing and inebriating influence of the increasing wealth, physical comforts and indeed the hope of self-sufficiency and security. Only if they could observe their discontent, apprehension, fear, frustration, heart-burning and worry. Their panting, perspiring, their running, rushing, their hustlings and bustlings, their sufferings, their sorrows and their misery, till in the wilderness of this progress, in quest of self-sufficiency, they have fallen prey to atomic venture to perish. And that even might not mean an end to their misery, for the eternal atomic vultures will welcome them in the next world.
I will tell you now something about my work, that is, the interpretation of the Prophecy of the Quran about the Atomic Hell, fourteen volumes, all in English, all unpublished, and mentioned before and you will hear in this respect things appearing as hyperbolic and boastful, but time will prove that they are statements, just, exact and sober. This work brethren is as you too will know in time the only light and the sole guidance in this world to lead this distressed mankind out of the Nuclear Hell. This is the Noah's Ark for this deluge of atomic fire. No anti-nuclear movement in this world, and no endeavour to revive religion can ever succeed in this age without adopting the guidelines and basic principles given in this work. The views expressed therein are hot, not, however, as hot as the nuclear explosion. Are indeed stingy, but not so as the stings of deadly radiations. And are unpleasant yet not so unpleasant as the spectacle of cancer-ridden human beings turned chimeras. But who is to be blamed for all this embarrassment? Not I. I have said only that which the Quran has said, attested indeed and confirmed by science, and that which the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus has said. Again the name of the Quran may not sound very pleasant to some. What, however, I can assure is, that once this mankind has had a mere glimpse of that grisly called the fiery giant atumbumb, it will not be capable of finding itself hesitant to fly even into the lap of the devil himself for refuge, if some hope of refuge appeared there. Quran after all is a book of guidance and claims divine original and has a right to guide the mankind toward peace. Let it be remembered, however, that although it is the Quran that has initiated the case, yet it is science that has furnished the proof thereof. The Bible has had its due share in the work and has found a place of honour due to it. Nay even the Hindu Philosophy of Maya and the Budhist Philosophy of Narvana has received treatment therein. If the Christ, the Mehdi, the Kulkai Autar or Budha were today, they would be found most zealous in the publication and the propagation of this work throughout the world and in every language. This work has no fore-runner and may have no follower. My conceit of it is that all the intellectual celebrities of the age combined would find it hard to produce the like of it, which I have indeed by the Grace of Merciful God produced single-handed and alone.
Fellow humans! This Baconian culture is proved to be false and its end now is in sight. You may hereafter wander in the wilderness of this Baconain culture for centuries in quest of self-sufficiency, and in the hope of peace, and control over this nuclear problem, to be the prey of nuclear vultures only. Ever-increasing feeling of hunger and poverty will be your lot in spite of the mountainous heaps of commodities. Ever-increasing and endless anarchy, strife, discontent, fear, mistrust, arson sabotage and homicide will prevail all over the world. The battlings and rattlings of nations, sects and individuals which you see now everywhere will not, abate but will for-ever increase, till the fire has spread all over the world and has assumed international character and has involved the entire world to bring about the total annihilation of entire life on earth.
Fellow humans! Times are coming when you will sigh and wish for the atomic war to rid you of a life unbearably miserable.
Fellow humans! It has fallen to my miserable lot to remind you of the terrific denunciations with which Moses warned the children of Israel on Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal in his last address to his people, in case they failed to hearken the voice of God, their Lord. Those are the denunciations that cause any one to shudder, and the human history has failed to produce another address like that. Just read the Bible, Deuteronomy Chapter XXVIII. What I have to inform you in this respect is, that today it is not the Jewish race only but it is, the entire mankind that may be seen as the victims of the terrible denunciation made against the Children of Israel in the address of Moses. For instance, " Is not the rain of this earth now the powdery nuclear fall-out, and will it not continue to fall on earth till this entire mankind is destroyed". But read the entire content of the Chapter-XXVIII.
Fellow Humans! I make a universal and earnest appeal to you for the publication of my work, in the name of humanity and implore you to show sense and cast away all prejudice to consult safety.
I may not make any divine pretensions, or claim any titles like " the Christ, the Mehdi, the Kulkai Autar or Budha", but what I am bound to inform you is, that these volumes which I have produced after a life-long struggle, have been produced under the supervising eye of the providence just as Noah had built his ark under the supervising eye of the providence. There is no alternative for you now therefore but either to publish these volumes or to be prepared for nuclear ruin. If you will assume indifference, you will see the mysterious providence at work against you to bring calamities upon you from sources that might be secret and unknown to you. Fear God therefore and show sense.
Jews ! You are the guides, the leaders and the masters of this age of Baconian culture. Indeed, you have found your Messiah in this anti-Christic, Baconian culture, and you are the Hierarchs of this world-wide, anti-Christic, Baconain church. All the rest of the nations are your proselytes. Beware therefore and repent, read the Chapter-XXVIII of Deuteronomy, and try to assess the portion and proportion of your destruction when the final moment arrived.
Christians! You are the victims of the Baconian culture of modern materialistic atomism, the un-Christian, anti-Christian and anti-Christic culture, and remember you stand accused of spreading it all over the world, and consequently dragging behind you the entire world into the flames of the atomic hell, the logical and scientific consequence of the Baconian culture. Beware therefore, and repent and read Christ's Sermon on the Mount, and know, that the Christian banners planted on the moon or the mars refer to the glory not of the Christianity or the Christ, but of Atomism, Francis Bacon and Antichrist. The banner on the moon is ozymendian reminiscence.
Muslims! You slavish followers of this Philosophy of modern progress, you have come to consider this modern progress as an article of your faith, and compatible with the views of the Quran. You are the victims of a misunderstanding that will cast you into the flames of the atomic hell both in this world and the next world. Can you think that the teachings of the Quran could lead its followers into the nuclear jehannah.Your misunderstanding emanates from the fact that you fail to differentiate between the purpose of the Ghaur-fil-Aayat (contemplation of the works of Allah) which the Quran has given, and which this Baconian progress has adopted and the same may be said of Taskhir-il-Kayinat that is the conquest of nature. The Quran may be seen pointing upward in this respect, while this Baconian Progress as may be seen not only points downward toward the earth but even changes its adopters into earth-worms. Read the Quran in comparison with the Baconian philosophy and you will see the difference. The Quran never was a book of Materialism despite its licence for the human necessities of life, if you fail to realize the fact even in the presence of the most manifest of the proofs, that is this atomic hell, then you will only see the fact in the flames of the Nuclear Jehannah, Al-Hotama, as the Quran has with miraculous appropriateness called it. Read the Chapter Al-Homaza and dread. You are being guided aright in these lines, and indeed for your own benefit, lest you say tomorrow, you were not told. My views can be seen attested by every authentic commentator of the Quran from Abdullah Ibn Abbas to Shabir Ahmad Usmani. Your helplessness in this universal economico-industrial set up is an excuse not acceptable to the inexorable laws of nature.
Muslims:- Although you stand at present a piece with the entire mankind in the nuclear problem entangled in the same net toward the nuclear jehannah with the rest, yet, by virtue of the fact that my work-----that is these volumes which I have a written ---- is based on the Quran, rather is the direct interpretation of the Quran itself corroborated by science. It appears natural that I should make a particular appeal to you that claim to be the followers of the Quran.
Muslims:- I have to say a lot to you in this perilous situation of the world, yet so grievous is the peril, and such utterly hopeless and deplorable is the situation in which I find myself fallen, that words begin to fail me and my more ---- courageous-----than------twenty------lions heart begins to sink in dismay. Seldom a servant of humanity was fallen in a situation so difficult and so peculiarly queer as I have amidst this inebriated-----by-----the-----anti-----Christic-----deceit. I have produced a miracle of the Quran, greater than which was never produced on earth, a miracle greater than raising the dead, yet I see a veil cast on the eye of even the followers of the Quran by the blinding inebriation of the love for wealth and physical comforts, and I see the ears of even the followers of the Quran stopped. The Muslims ought to have thronged about me with a burning zeal in their hearts for getting it published to the world, as a light to save this mankind from the nuclear doom and as an honour to the word of Allah. On the other hand, I see the Muslim nation in a mood of indifference and am uninterested. Muslims! I need not recite to you the terrible denunciations of Moses which he made against the Children of Israel. The prophecy of the Quran about Al-Hotama is in itself terrible enough. I will say to you only that if you will fail to publish this my work which is the interpretation of the Prophecy of the Quran about the atomic hell, and will thus deprive this mankind of the only guidance for and hope of escaping the most painful and most disgraceful end in the burning flames of the nuclear jehannah both in this transient world and the next eternal work, then here in this world you will feel yourself sitting on a muffled mouth of a live volcano. Calamities and vicissitudes of the worst kind from unknown and unseen sources will be your lot, till the final moment of the universal destruction of this world has arrived, the moment when you will see yourself being dragged with the tail of the Baconian West into the dazzling flames of the nuclear jehannah, the enkindled wrath of God, as helplessly and as slavishly as you have followed the Baconian West in adopting the Baconian Progress in clear contradiction to the word of the Quran. And on the day of judgement you will stand before the throne of Allah answerable, for your neglect of the publication of the guidance of the Quran and your failing the mankind in the moment of greatest peril and distress. If this world of Allah is consumed by the nuclear jehannah without having been published by you this prophecy of the Quran about the atomic hell, then it is you and not the non-Muslim nations that will bear the brunt of the blame. Beware therefore. Fear Allah and repent. There still is some little margin left for repentance for those who may feel inclined to repentance. And remember, if the Muslims will make the Islamic World as a prison to my interpretation of the Prophecy of the Quran, about the Atomic Hell, the wall of the prison will be demolished by the Providence that the Quran may burst through.
Muslims:- I have no power over you, just as I have no power over anyone else, but let the word of the Quran count if you really believe in the Quran. I admit to your right of ascertaining the authenticity and validity of my work. I am aware of my own obscurity. I invite you to judge my work. I will give you every quarter in that respect. But I inform you that in order to judge my work it will be necessary for you to call in a number of the leading Physicists and Radio-biologists, from all over the world to attest the authenticity of the Quranic Characterization of the Atomic Phenomenon, found in the Prophecy about the Nuclear Hell, and a number of noted Philosophers of Atomism, and Philosophers in general from all over the world to attest the truth of the Quranic Description of the Philosophy of modern Atomism as is to be found in the Prophecy about the Nuclear Hell, and a number of the Commentators of the Quran, Commentators who have a commentary of the Quran to their credit. And why the Muslims should grudge such a conference, when many such conferences are annually held in the Islamic World for purposes and on topics which may well be regarded as comparatively superfluous. And why my fourteen volumes should not be published by the Islamic World, when hundreds of Books are being annually published, which if published or if not published would make not the least difference to this world.
Muslims:- Have no apprehensions and no misappre-hensions, I am not going to plunge you in any instantaneous practical revolution by the publication of these my volumes. Nay, but it is only the matter of publishing a few volumes to the world, at first original and thereafter in translations in every language. The seed therein will gradually grow, and the publishers will have the credit. Peoples knowing the reality, nations will get together to chalk out some gradually collective programme to rid this world of the Nuclear Danger.
Muslims:- I had an intention to side-track you and save you the trouble of publishing these fourteen volumes, but I expect difficulties due to the general Baconian helplessness of this mankind, but particularly due to the name of the Quran. I have no mind, nor I find myself in a position in these present circumstances to say to you to do this or do not that, but what I cannot desist from saying to you is that being Muslims, it is not your role to follow the world blindly into the Atomic Hell, but rather your role is to oppose the Nuclear Weapons, and dissolve the Nuclear problem, and stand against these evils manfully like true Muslims to save this mankind from the Nuclear Doom. The world will be grateful to you for your kindness. It is far better than being cast into the Nuclear Pit like a basket of filth and be consumed. No better gift of Islamic World to this distressed mankind in the 15th Century Hijra Programme could be than the set of this work of mine published. No one country alone could do much against this Nuclear Problem. Let therefore this mankind be taught the reality of the Nuclear Problem, so that the nations coming together would chalk out a common, gradual programme to rid this world of the Nuclear Danger.
Hindus and Budhists:- I remind you of the fact that both the Hindu Philosophy of Maya, and the Budhist Philosophy of Narvana are basically opposed to this Baconian Philosophy of modern Atomism, this modern Progress, and that the palanquin of this Modern Progress crashes right into the flames of the promonu - narq that is the Hotama. That is the Atomic Hell.
Atomists:- I implore you to come to senses and realize your responsibility in this Nuclear Affair. Declare to the world the uncontrollability of the Nuclear Power, and improbability of any discovery that might bring the Nuclear Affair within the control of man. And preach to the world the horrible aspects of the Nuclear Hazards. And instead of designing the still more destructive Atomic Bombs, and still more powerful Reactors, leave this noxious profession, take up some other employment somewhere, and make it your mission to teach your fellow humans the nefarious reality of the Nuclear Affair. And instead of dying of Cancer in a Hospital, die as a missionary of humanitarian cause. Tell this world that the Atomic Bomb is not a weapon but it is the wrath of God. And that the Atomic War is not a war but is total annihilation of life on earth.
And now inspite of all this inducement, if this present generation of human beings would not be willing to publish this work of mine, then I pray, let this work be at least preserved in some museum, that perhaps some future generation, being in acute distress and grievous danger might seek the guidance contained therein in order to emerge from the Atomic Pit, which their preceding generations bequeathed to them as a legacy. If, however, a meter is invented, which could measure the continuous deterioration of the Nuclear Situation of the World, the increasing need of this my work could be continually measured in direct proportion.
But the question is, why a man in my position and circumstances should ever venture to undertake a work of this nature, and undergo an ordeal so lengthy and so afflictive. Why not a Russel or a William James if not a Darwin or a Spinoza? None in the world can give a satisfactory answer to this question except him who has been whipped through this ordeal. That is I. My miserable self. Why I should sacrifice every ambition. Why I should sacrifice every desire. And why I should submit myself to so excruciating an experience, while hundreds of thousands of highly learned persons with dozens of degrees of reputable universities existed in this age of knowledge and Science. When now I look back at my forty-----year-----long intellectual pilgrimage, I see no John Bunyan that could find a heart to narrate my Pilgrimage, and I fail to discern a Sigmund Freud that could own a method to subject the manner of my intellectual attainment to Psycho-analysis. Mine has been an experience which fails to find a precedent in the history of thought, provided that my particular case is examined minutely.
My answer to this question though a simple one is that I was born on 17th February 1917, with a destiny to fight this deluge of Atomic fire and save this world. 17th February, according to the Bible is the date of the eruption of Noah's deluge, though of water, against this present one, of fire. In my Childhood I saw certain visions which I now understand to be of great authenticity, and presaging great universal events in line with my mission that of saving this mankind from grievous doom in the flames of Atomic Hell. In the year 1942, my 25th and the fateful year in which the great Italian Physicist Enrico Fermi succeeded in opening the gate of Atomic fire on this mankind by his discovery of the formula of "Open Sesame" that is by his successful realization of Uranium Fission Chain Reaction in Chicago, America, I was in Mussayyib, in Iraq, in a vision recommended by the Green-turbaned Saint Al-Khedhr to Abraham for the Abrahamic Mission that of warning this world about the Atomic Hell, and exposing the actual reality of the Nuclear Problem, and teaching this world the methods of escaping the grievous Atomic Doom. I was in that vision shown extraordinary great signs of God. In the same era and in the same place I was shown the crucifix in another vision. I at that time had but negligible knowledge and extremely meager education.
But, thereafter like a man prepossessed I took to study, and learned languages, and literatures, English, Arabic, Persian and Urdu, Philosophies, Ancient and Modern, Mathematics, its every branch, Arithmetic Geometry and Algebra, Sciences to the Nuclear Science, Scriptures, the Quran and the Bible, the Old and the New Testament, year after year, indeed without a school and without a teacher, and always obliged to work for my subsistence, and the subsistence of a respectable family. Till in 1961I stumbled upon the discovery of the prophetic Warning of the Quran about the atomic hell, and thereby I realized my theme, and set to the research in the subjects involved therein. You will wonder where from I received the books for study from the beginning of my course to its end forty years later. I leave this point to you to wonder about it. Books, however, in hundreds on all the various topics I received and I read them to absorb them and to meditate on the points contained therein, and to make them a piece with my mind. In 1972 I set myself to writing till in 1982 I brought my work to its finish. I have another three thousand pages of writings on various topics in Urdu and in Persian, besides these English writings, all hitherto unpublished and all in the form of Manuscripts. You can judge my labour and industry, but you cannot know of my sufferings and afflictions.
And now having the key of the future destiny of mankind and all these invaluable treasures of knowledge in my hand, the treasures which never added a groat or a penny to my pocket, I stand groping in darkness in an indifferent world, fearing that these manuscripts will be eaten away by white-ants, for I have no home, hearth, property, or wealth to secure these voluminous writings. Let this, however, be known to humanity, that if these manuscripts are eaten away by the white-ants, it is not merely the leaves of paper but it in fact is the future destiny of this mankind, that the white- ants will eat away. And let this be remembered, that I place no claim on my dreams or visions. All that ought to be regarded as my personal affair. What I insist upon is the perusal of my works on their merit. If my works are published, I would prefer to be forgotten myself by the humanity. Let, however, this be known, that this work, has its own power and thrust. A work claiming the power to destroy all these stockpiles of Atomic Bombs and all these arsenals of conventional weapons ought as a rule to have its own power, a power in fact greater than the stock-piles it has to destroy. Nations, therefore in this world, which will be found wanting in cooperation for the publication of this work will be subjected by the mysterious hand of providence to miseries, sufferings, and calamities emanating both from the sources secret, unknown , and open, manifest.
"One even occurred in 1945" wrote Trueman ,the President of America in his Memories (1956), "of such magnitude that it was to revolutionize our relations with the world and usher in a new era for humanity, the fruits and goals and problems of which we cannot even now fully grasp. It was the atomic bomb".
The fruits and goals and problems of the Atomic Bomb are no longer a hidden secret, the atomic destiny of this mankind is apparent. In this utter darkness flashed the declaration of Benjamin Creme about the appearance of the New Christ. Benjamin Creme declared on 24th April, 1982 in leading newspapers of the Western Countries that the New Christ lived among the Pakistani community of Bricklane, East London, and was to declare himself soon. The New Christ according to Benjamin Creme was the name of Christ Lord Maitreya and the Mehdi, the Massiah, the Kulkai Autar and the Budha in his fifth appearance. And that the Mission of his appearance is to stop the Third World War. The significance of this declaration of 1982 was equal to if not greater than the appearance of the Atomic Bomb, the Nuclear Giant Atumbumb, and let me declare outright that whatever might have been the guiding Media of Benjamin Creme, I and only I, was the object of Benjamin Creme's declaration. It is not the name or the title with which Benjamin Creme addressed his saviour, rather it is the mission assigned to him that counts. To stop the Third World War, which actually means to annul the possibility of nuclear ruin of the world is my mission, and mine alone in the world at these present times. The name or the title which Benjamin Creme has assigned to the expected saviour of this present world, namely, the Christ Lord Maitreya, or the Mehdi or Kulkai Autar or the Budha, does not matter and may even prove detrimental to the actual mission, which in itself is frightfully tremendous. Refer to the Gospel about the second coming of Christ. The Christ said:-
"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there, believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders; in so much that, it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, behold, he is in the desert; go not forth; behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightening cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the son of man be. For wherever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together".
(ST Mathew- Chapter XXIV-23-28)
Read also the entire Chapter-XXIV and with care. There is a full world of interpretation and explanation therein. But here I have no time to go into the detail. Exert yourself to understand.
Failure of Benjamin Creme in finding his new Christ among the Pakistani community of Bricklane, East London, disproved the possibility of any preplanned scheme or planting a person there beforehand, or a conspiracy against any nation. Success of Benjamin Creme in spotting out his New Christ there, in Bricklane would have meant to the world a mere hoax, and a plot. And also even the Christ would have failed in gaining acceptance of the Christian and the Non-Christian world. I had yearned long before Benjamin Creme's declaration after London for the presentation of my case there, but the lack of means had prevented me. And in all probability I would have stayed in the Pakistani ghetto of Bricklane, East London. And Benjamin Creme would have had no difficulty in recognizing me there. But my presentation to the world like that would have ruined my mission in the ensuing controversy about the title that of Christ. The declaration of Benjamin Creme, however has proved beyond any doubt that none in the world today existed to claim the title of Christ. And because none in the world today exists to claim the mission that of annulling the possibility of the nuclear ruin of the world, except me, I declare to the world my mission, without giving any consideration to the nomenclative specificity in these present circumstances of the world, and this present attitude of mankind about the divinity or spiritual ordainment.
Why, the question is, did Benjamin Creme's guiding Media fail to point out the exact whereabouts of the object of his prophecy, for when his colleague Chris Kellan searched for the new Christ among the Pakistani community of Bricklane in East London, England. I was among the Pakistani community, of Nawab Abad, Wah Cantt. Distt Rawalpindi, Pakistan, fuming, fretting, chafing about my mission. The answer to this question is, that had Benjamin Creme's satellite led him to where I then was, just as the star of the wisemen of the East had led them where the child Christ then lay in Bethlehem, and had Benjamin Creme pointed me there out and declared me as the Mehdi, that would have meant to me a Judas Kiss, and I just like every other pretender to the title of Mehdi among the Muslims these days would have come to a grievous instantaneous end, while the affair would have been published as a conspiracy of some Western Anti-Islamic Lobby against the world of Islam. The most baffling question, however, is why Benjamin Creme had not made sure of the presence of the object of his prophecy beforehand in London, he himself living in London, before venturing at so costly and so convulsive a declaration to the world? Surely he could not be regarded as so devoid of sense. Why after throwing the expecting world into convulsions he should confess his failure to find his new Christ in Bricklane? The only feasible answer to this question could be, that the scheming hand of providence deluded him into such a baffling mistake, but why? Only to see Benjamin Creme's declaration made to the world. Again why? Because if Benjamin Creme had made a search beforehand, and had failed to spot his object in Brick lane, he surely would have abandoned his intention, while the providence intended to bring my mission into the presence of the world through Benjamin Creme's declaration.
Benjamin Creme did neither lie, nor was he a victim of a false hallucination. Upon me now it is to vindicate his honour before the world, and to assuage his pangs of agony. Let him communicate with me on my address.
And let him know that I have sent him a letter on 23rd June 1982 C/O Information Centre Amsterdam, and Tara Press London, and Tara Centre New York, and the Tara Centre N.Holliwood ,USA. I do not know whether it reached him or not. Nor do I know in what state of mind is he now. I call upon him to cheer up. His name will go in history like a sparkling star in the new age. God willing indeed.
Poor Benjamin Creme's declaration of the appearance of Christ was as could have been expected lost in the jeers of a disbelieving crowd. The world still entertains hopes in Science and Political Sagacity to avoid atomic war. The atomic weapons are still locked up in stockpiles. And but a few reactors are at present functioning throughout the world. They could accept the Christ only when the degree of their panic has reached a mark where they'll cry in panic for a saviour. May be only under the hails of atomic bombs it is that this mankind will realize the reality of this Baconian Culture and the necessity of a saviour, but then it will be too late. No saviour could neutralize the irreparable ill-effects of Nuclear War.
If Christ would descend from Heaven in these days, he would find himself in the custody of border post, as a derelict, with no passport and without a nationality and therefore a person an ingratia, Mehdi would have a short shift among the Muslims. Messiah of the Jews would be required to sit on the throne of David and Restore Kingdom to the Jews. Kulkai Autar will find it hard to fix his role in India, while Budha will see all his previous realm to be occupied by Socialists. And remember they are all of them anti-materialistic. It is impossible for them to allow particularly this Baconian Modern Progress, judging it to be the root-cause of all the trouble and a basis for the Nuclear Ruin. It is unrealistic to expect any of them to come to a compromise with this Baconian Culture. And no joy is there for the Christ in the Christian banners planted on the moon or the mars. They reflect the glory not of Christ but of Francis Bacon. And let it be realized, that these stockpiles could not be evaporated, nor this nuclear problem could be dissolved by the spiritual breath or mere prayers. Nay, but a practical anti-revolution substantial basis is necessary to neutralize this process which has reached this stage of Nuclear Annihilation. The revolution shall have to be conducted on the principle of Anti-thesis. And the revolution will be as great and as universal as has been that which has brought his world to the brink of Nuclear ruin. This will need a book of guidance which I have produced after a life-long labour. Christ too will need a book like this, to guide the revolution. It is high time, however, for spiritual saviours to arrive, because this world now stands on the brink of utter ruin, and the atomic war may at any moment begin to declare the end of this world .What they will come for after the ruin. Whom will they then address? The cities in ruins? Whom will then guide? The lurking radiations?
People of this age! you are a people, callous-hearted and merciless without a precedent in human history. The proof is your Atomic Bombs, incendiary bombs and plague bombs. If you are destroyed by these bombs, it is only justice, since you have made these bombs yourself to destroy fellow humans. But the Merciful God still has shown his special mercy in the production of a work of guidance which I have produced in this dark age. Show gratitude therefore and accept this work of mine and publish it, that perhaps you might be saved from a most disgraceful end in the flames of the nuclear jehannah.
It was on 5th May 1980, that I sent an article to fifteen of the leading Physicists all over the world. The article contained the scientific characterization of the atomic phenomenon to be found in an antique book that was actually the Quran. I sent the characterization on condition that if it were attested by the Physicists, I would declare to the world the formula of neutralizing the fire of atomic hell as is contained in the same book. The names of these celebrities are, Dr. Edward Teller, Dr. Gerald Fredrick Tape, Dr. wolfgang Kurt, Hermann Panofsky, all of America, Sir Dennys Haigh Wilkinson, Dr. Rendel Sebastian Pease, Dr. Arthur Wick, all of Britain, Statens Karnakreat Inspection of Stockholm Sweden, International Atomic Energy of Vienna, Austria. Dr. Robert Pompe of Berlin, German Democratic Republics . Dr. Jacques Yvon of France, Dr. Nolufusa Sainton, Dr. Yukawa Hideki, Dr. Sasaki Yoshitake, all of Japan. Dr. Andrey Dmitryerick, Kakaror of Moscow, USSR. And Chairman of Atomic Energy Government of India, Bombay. Cast a glance on the list and you'll see the essence of the world of Physicists represented therein. None of them sent me the attestation or rejection. Three only, namely, Shirely Petty, Secretary to Dr. Edward Teller, Statens Stockholm, and R.S.Pease of England acknowledged the receipt of my article, for which I bless them and give them thanks. Let all these my Physicists addressees know, that may article was a historical and epoch-making one. It envisaged the end of an age and the beginning of a new, different one, and it was a wonder of scientific characterization. If it had reached them and is still with them, let them read it. I believe that if they will persue it with that care which is due to it, they possess the knowledge required to appreciate it. It will gain in significance day by day. My offer to them still holds, for not these fifteen only, but for the entire community of scientists. Times are coming that scientist community will be of the most enthusiastic votaries of my views about Science.
It was on 5th May 1982 that I sent my letters to fifteen of the dignatories all over the world. Of these three are Presidents, namely of America, Russia and Libya, there are Prime Ministers, namely, of India, Canada and Japan. One is a King, namely of Saudi Arabia. His Majesty King Khalid, may he blessed by Allah, he is no more with us. Two are religious heads, namely Ayatullah Khumeni of Iran, and His Holiness the Pope of Rome. Five are Arab Sheikhs, namely their Excellencies of Kuwait, Abu-Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai and Sharjah. And of course the Secretary General of UNO Mr. Jevier Perez De Cuellor. Of these one only hitherto has replied, namely, the Prime Minister of Canada. I heartily thank him and bless him. Although, it is quite natural that a letter from an obscure citizen could hardly gain attention of so High Ranking and Pre-occupied personages as these, yet the eye of a connoisseur could hardly fail to judge the exceptional character of the epistle, unfortunately, however, letters considered of little significance are not presented to such high dignitaries. If my letter has been received by them and is still with them in record, let them, I pray, be so kind as to read it, for it holds the destinies of this mankind, as well of their respective countries. My request to them still holds, and I expect them to perform their role in this affair according to their high office and influence. I had requested in my letter to the Secretary General of UNO, that I should be invited to the second session of UNO about the Armament Race, and I received no reply. I ask Mr. De Cuellor, how much success has been achieved in that session. Nay, let Mr. De cuellor note, that the result of the 22nd session will be no better. It was for me, and for me alone to speak there, if any light or any result was aimed at. To some of these my dignified addressees I had made an appeal for funds for the publication of my work. With all that respect which is due to them I request them to realize that to have wealth and ignore the precautionary measures against the atomic war is no wise policy. One atomic war will destroy all the existing wealth on earth, while a little wealth spent in the publication of my work may save all the rest. My request for funds still holds. I have to offer my apology, to the rest of the Heads of the States of the world and worthies for not sending my letter to them. It was only because my means did not allow me. How I managed to pay for the postage for the letters which I have sent, is a tale too sad to tell.
During the last few months, I sent the list of the names of my books to a number of publishers of England and America. Some sent their apologies and good wishes, others did not reply. Perhaps the names of the books are too formidable for a publisher of these times to consider. While my obscurity perhaps added to their doubts. And may be there are other factors too. It is hard for me to ignore their business or sentimental considerations. In their case I can neither behave as a despot nor can feign myself inconsiderate. But what they cannot at this stage see, and I see, is that these my works are of immortal nature, and are of a genuine universal interest. The entire world will long to read them at least the first edition will go as they say like hot cakes all over the earth. Thereafter, the merit of the work will be the factor.
And though I have no complaint against the publishers, I have a very genuine complaint against the news-papers of the West, particularly of Britain and America. Not a word of all that I have hitherto sent to them has been considered as fit for publication in those esteemed papers of such countries as have had a reputation for granting a right of view to everyone without prejudice. They may be requested to correct their attitude toward me, despite all the apparent pungency and causticity of views.
And in the end, now, allow me to invite the attention of the elite of this world, to the now historic letter which Einstein wrote on August 2, 1939 to Roosevelt, the American President inviting his attention to the possibility of making a bomb, million times more powerful than the conventional bomb, as then was indicated by some work of Fermi and Szillard on Uranium Fission. The possibility was seriously explored by the US Government and of course the bomb was successfully made. The bomb before which the entire mankind now stands trembling in terror for life, I on July 21 of 1982 invite the attention of the horrified mankind to the possibility of destroying that terrific bomb as is indicated by the prophecy of the Quran about the atomic hell. Farewell now, fellow humans! I appeared in this world's like a stranger. I lived all this life in this world like a stranger. My sojourn in this earth may end any moment. I have no particular quality to show, except sincerity and sympathy. How dearly I wish that you recognized it before my departure. I bless you, under pray to God, that He save you from the dreadful atomic doom, and may you and your children live in peace and prosperity and in the memory of God and the other world for ever. Amen. If my work is not published during my life-time, it will certainly be published one day to save this world from the nuclear doom. Therefore try to preserve it for the sake of your children,children's children, children's children's children. Farewell to you all and Good-by. July 21st , 1982 END

The line of argument of the modern science guided sceptics due to their relatively greater knowledge of the universe is different from their ancient counterpart. For, whereas the ancient sceptic was generally lead to doubt and disbelief due to ignorance, the doubts of the modern scientist regarding religion are paradoxically the creation of their own knowledge Quran’s genius therefore shines supreme to amount to a miracle, since we see, that the Quran surprisingly enough if on the one hand it has for generations in the past furnished the doubting mind of an ignorant sceptic with sufficiently convincing reason, it could on the other hand successfully clear the doubts of the modern knowledgeable scientist and in both the instances bringing into play the same words and the same verses. Such indeed is the versatile comprehensiveness of its marvellous composition, such unfathomable adoptability of its fluent, crystal clear expression, such unsurpassable sublimity of its exceedingly superb diction with such supernaturally unlimited resourcefulness of every word and verse in an amazingly surreptitious, esoterically occult manner, Quran seems no doubt the work of an omniscient, and all pervading author, who fully anticipated the future trends of the mind of humanity, even sometimes would repeat exact words, expressions and the true purport of a passage by a distant author in a different language, and displaying always the particular mood catachrestic of foreknowledge. Quran has its own complete, perfected philosophy and a most agreeable code of human life. When it differs it does it so with the vehemence, clarity, and reassurance of a divine oracle.
This we intend to show in an example out of innumerable examples. We have selected the first twelve pages of the famous book “Mysterious Universe” and a part of the last chapter of the same work, in which the celebrated author Sir James jeans has admirably summarized the philosophical thought of the modern scientist. The two philosophies shall therein be found in the contesting arena in their true perspective and at their best.
Yousuf Gabriel 20-5-1968
The point of difference and the contrasting features shall no longer remain obscure. Scientist through his knowledge has tended toward, fear, misapprehension, disbelief, dismay, confusion, perplexity, perversion, depravity, distress and lack of confidence. He fails to find the purpose of creation and the creation of man therein, has puzzled him to the extremes. His hopes of ultimately finding the truth lay unfortunately in the scientific knowledge of a degree much beyond the human reach at best at present. He has used all his knowledge to prove disbelief and his future expectations in the discoveries tend to further strengthening disbelief. He desires to usurp the sovereignty of God through man’s conquest of the realm of nature, whereas Quran reiterates the right for God through his absolute command in the preset world and his unshared sovereignty on the day of judgement, the judgement of the just and merciful God, the hope of his creatures. One wonders how if on the one hand the modern scientist is splitting the invisible atom and is endeavouring to reach the moon and the mars, on the other hand his sight in the matters of human philosophy is so weak and his understanding so blind, that he call this creation on earth a chance creation, to lack proportion, a by-product and something out of the way. That he should blink his eyes at the possible purpose of the creation and the purpose of man’s existence on earth. That he should completely ignore the possibility of a life after death, and all that he should do surprisingly on the dint of his knowledge of this material universe. The modern philosophy therefore as we shall see is the complete antithesis of that of the Quran in this respect. It is their misfortune, to end in atomic conflagration. And inglorious and indeed for mankind. It now is the moral duty incumbent upon the Muslims to learn and then to teach humanity the precise outlook of the Quran in religious, moral and spiritual values. That perhaps mankind may still live, and that perhaps this dreadful danger of atomic ruin be averted. And if the humanity were destined to meet their end through atomic disaster, let at least the survivals be furnished with a light and a look which could guarantee peace and prosperity in this world and the unmixed bliss in the life to come. The Quran indeed as you shall with your own eyes see, has contained sufficient proofs of the fact that as if it knew that such and such author shall in such and such age present to the mankind such and such works to contain such and such words, so that Quran occasionally repeats some of the words. They attribute everything to the laws of nature, Quran attribute everything to God the creator, as separate from nature and the absolute master of everything and always the signs which increase the faith of a believer and more perplexity to the scientist.
“ A few stars are known which are hardly bigger than the earth, but the majority are so large that hundreds of thousands of earths could be packed inside each and leave room to spare; here and thee we come upon against star large enough to contain millions of millions of earths”.
(Page 1 para 1- The Mysterious Universe ).
The scientist by the comparative smallness of the earth as against the universe intends to disparage the earth and minimize its significance in order to prove the life upon earth a mere by product and somehow out of the way. The Quran therefore says:-
“With Him is everything (regulated), according to (determined measure). (He) knoweth that which is hidden and that which is revealed. (He is) the GREAT, the Most HIGH”.
(XIII-Alraad (2) ( 8-9)
“And the total number of stars in the universe is probably something like the total, number of grains of sand on all these ashore of the world”.
(Page 1 para 1 The Mysterious Universe).
The scientist is tending towards his ultimate ignorance of the purpose of creation by belittling the earth and the life upon it. Hence says the Quran: God is more considerable and his words:.
“Say, if the seas were ink, to write the words of my Lord, verily these would fail, although we added (another sea) like unto it as a further supply”.
(XVIII Al-Kahf (12) (109)
“Such is the littleness of our home in space, when measured up against the total substance of the universe”.
(Page 1 para 1 The Mysterious Universe)
“Do not worry”
“God’s earth (is) spacious”.
(Quran XXXIX Alzomar (2) (10)
“This vast multitude of stars are wandering in space. A few from groups which journey in company. But the majority are solitary travelers”.
(The Mysterious Universe Page 1 para 2)
“It is He who hath ordained the stars for you; that ye may be directed thereby in the darkness of the land and of the sea. We have already shown forth (our) signs unto people who understand”.
(Quran VI Alanam (12) (98)
“And they (these stars) travel through a universe so spacious; that it is an event of almost unimaginable rarity for a star to come anywhere near to another star”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 1 para 2)
“We have built the heavens with might, and we are to give (it) a large extent”.
(LI Alzariat (3) (47)
“For the most part each (star) voyages in splendid isolation, like a ship on Empty Ocean. In a scale model in which stars are ships, the average ship will be over a million miles from its nearest neighbour, whence it is easy to understand why a ship seldom finds another within hailing distance”.
(The Mysterious Universe Page 1 Para 2)
“The stars are compelled by his command”.
(XVI Alnahl (2) (12)
“Their falleth no leaf, but He knoweth it. Neither (is there) a single grain in the dark parts of the earth, neither a green thing nor a dry thing but it (is) written in the perspicuous book”.
(VI Alanaam (7) (59)
“We believe nevertheless, that some two thousand million years ago this rare event took place, and that a second star, wandering blindly through space, happened to come within hailing distance of the sun. Just as the sun and the moon raise tides on the earth, so this second star must have raised tides on the surface of the sun. But they would be very the different from the puny tides which the small mass of the moon raises in our oceans; a judge tidal wave must have traveled over the surface of the sun, ultimately forming a mountain of prodivious height, which would rise ever higher and higher, as the cause of disturbance came nearer and nearer. And before the second star began to recede, its tidal pull had become so powerful, that this mountain was torn to pieces, and threw off small fragments of itself, much as the crest of a wave throws off spray. These small fragments have been circulating around their present sun, ever since. They are the planets, great and small of which our earth is one”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 1-2 Para 3)
The scientist through this possibility of the accidental birth of our earth intends to strengthen his argument regarding this denial of the religious purpose of man's creation. Yet the story of this plausible accident is based on sheer speculation. No scientist could come out with a substantial scientific proof of the accident. It is just their belief without the testimony of proof.
Signs are of avail only to the believers:-
“Verily (both) in heaven and earth (are) signs of (the divine power) unto the true believers”.
(Quran XLV Aljathia (1) (3)
“Say, Consider whatever is in heaven and on earth, but signs are of no avail, neither preachers, unto people who will not believe”.
(Yunus (10) (101)
“Surely as to these things (their) eyes are not blind, but the hearts are blind which are in their breasts”.
(Quran XXII.Alhajj . (6 (46)
“The sun and the other stars we see in the sky are all intensely hot for too hot for life to be able to obtain or retain a footing on them”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2, para 4)
By this the scientist means to diminish the area of life in order to further create about if life was the object in the mind of the creator when he created this universe. The depreciatory view of life would automatically expunge the idea of the purpose of creating as is given by religion.
“Say the fire of hell will be hotter”.
(Quran IX. Altaubah 11 (81)
“Far too hot to be able to be obtained or retain a footing on them”.
If God had wanted this would not have been anything difficult with him.
“Verily those who disbelieve our sign, we will surely cast to be boiled in (hell) fire. So often as their skins shall be well burned we will give them other skins in exchange, that they may taste the (sharper) punishment, for God is mighty and Wise”.
(Quran IV.Alnisa.(8) (56)
“So also no doubt were the ejected fragments of the sun, when they were first thrown off. Gradually they cooled, until now they have but little intrinsic heat left”.
Nothing difficult for God; if He had wanted to create life in the planets in their incandescent state.
“And when Abraham was cast into the burning pile, we said, O! Fire! Be thou cold and preservation unto Abraham”.
(Quran XXI.Alanbia (5) (69)
“Their (the cooled planets) warmth almost entirely derived from the radiation which the sun pours down upon them”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2, para 4)
“Who hath ordained the sun to shine”.
(Quran Yunus (1) (5)
“Verily God is who provideth (for all creatures) possessed of mighty power”.
(LI Alzariat (3) (58)
“In course of time we know not how, when, or why one of these cooling fragments gave birth to life”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2, para 4)
Mark their disbelief and ignorance.
“His command when He willeth a thing (is) that he saith unto it be! and it is”.
(Quran XXXVI Yasin 95) (82)
“ It (life) started in simple organisms whose vital capacities consisted of little beyond reproduction and death. But from these humble beginning emerged a stream of life, which, advancing through ever greater and greater complexity, has culminated in beings whose lives are largely centred in their emotions and ambitions, their aesthetic appreciations, and the religious in which their lightest hopes and noblest aspirations lie enshrined”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2, para 4)
“ First created man of clay and after wards made his posterity of an extract of despicable water, and them formed him (into proper shape) and breathed of his spirit into him, and hath given you (the senses of ) hearing and seeing, and hearts (to understand).How small thanks do ye return”.
(Quran XXXII Alsijdah (17) (7 to 9)
“Although we cannot speak with any certainty, it seems most likely that humanity came into existence in some such way as this”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2, para 5)
“But ye have no knowledge given unto you, except a little”.
(Quran XVII Beni Israel (10)(85)
“Standing on our microscopic fragment of a grain of sand (that is our earth compared to the universe), we attempt to discover the nature and purpose of the universe which surrounds our home in space and time. Our first impression is something akin to terror”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 3, para 5)
But according to Quran there are other things worth fearing. The universe displays the majesty of its creator.
“ O men fear your Lord. Verily the shock of the (last) hour will be a terrible thing”.
(Quran XXII Alhajj (1) (1)
“Justly fear the fire (of hell) whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the unbelievers.”.
(Quran II.Albakarah (3) (24)
“If we had sent down this Quran on a mountain, thou wouldst-certainly have seen the same humble itself and cleave in sunder for fear of God”.
(Quran LIX Al Hashr (3) (21)
Even the universe itself dreaded the offer of the trust and declined therefore the offer by the Creator, but man accepted the same.
“We proposed the faith unto the heaven and the earth, and the mountains, and they refused to undertake the same and were afraid threof; but man undertook it, verily he was unjust to himself and foolish”.
(Quran XXXIII Alhaab (9) (72)
It is the God that is justly feared by the believers and not the universe. The signs just increase their faith.
“Verily the true believers (are those) whose hearts fear when God is mentioned and whose faith increaseth when his signs are released unto”.
(Quran VIII Alanfaal (1) (2 to 4)
“We find the universe terrifying because of its vast meaningless distances}.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2, 3 para 5)
Vastness of the Universe signifies the greatness of its Creator:-
“Let God be exalted, the King, the Truth! There is no God besides him, the Lord of the honourable throne”.
(Quran XXIII Almominun (6) (116)
“But they make not a due estimate of God, since the whole earth shall be but his handful on the day of resurrection, and the heavens shall be rolled together in his right hand. Praise be unto him! And far be He exalted above that which they associate with him”.
(XXXIX Alzomar (7) (67)
The vast meaningless distances of the universe:-
Nothing that God has created is meaningless. Rather everything is made to purpose. But they area people enchanted:-
“If we should open a gate in the heaven above them, and they should ascend thereto all the day long, they would surely say, our eyes are only dazzled, or rather we are a people deluded by enchantments.
(Quran XV Alhijra (1) (14-15)
Although to a believer’s eye :-
The Quran says:-
(Quran Aljathia (1) (3)
And indeed no disproportion in the creation of God :-
and nothing meaningless:-
“All things we created (bound) by a fixed decree”.
(LIV Alqamar (3) (49)
“(Universe seems) terrifying because of its inconceivably long vistas of time, which dwarf human history to a twinkling of an eye”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2-3 para 5)
Indeed the space of a day is fifty thousand years to rise on the steps to the throne of God. The Quran says :-
“God the possessor of steps, by which the angels ascend un to him, and the spirit (Gabriel also), in a day whose space is fifty thousand years, wherefore bear (the insults of Meccans) with becoming patience, for they see (their punishment) afar off, but we see it might at hand”.
(LXX Almaarij (1) (1 to 9)
“Universe terrifying because of its inconceivably long vistas of time which dwarf human history to a twinkling of an eye”.
The regard of the resurrection and the day of judgement is more essential which also is to be as a twinkling of an eye:-
“The business of the (last) hour shall be only as the twinkling of an eye, or even more quick”.
(Quran XVI Alnahml (11) (77)
But see the different types of men and of knowledge. The Quran says:-
“ On a day whereon the last hour shall come, the wicked will swear, that they have not terrified above an hour, in like manner did they utter lies (in their life time). But those on whom knowledge hath been bestowed and faith, shall say, ye have tarried according to the book of God, until the day of resurrection, for this is the day of resurrection, but ye know it not”.
(XXX Alrum (6) (55 to 59)
“Terrifying because of our extreme loneliness”.
(Mysterious Universe page 2-3 para 5)
He feels lonely:-
“And we are nearer unto him than (His) jogular vein”.
(Quran CAF (2) ( 1 to 22)
And this the prophet know when he said to his companion in the cave :-
“Be not grieved, for God is with us”.
(Ix Altubah (6) (40)
“(Universe) terrifying because of the material insignifance of our home in space- a millionth part of a grain of sand out of all the seas and in the world”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 2-3, para 5)
But Quran has a different view thereof and says:-
“God’s earth is spacious”.
(XXXIX Alzomar (2) (10)
Need not pine therefore unnecessarily.
“Material insignificance of our home in space “.
“The provision of this life (in respect of) that which is to come is but slander”.
(Quran Altaubah (6) 938)
Mark therein a point of real distinction between the two philosophies. The material insignificance of the earth, and this life in eyes of the modern scientist is only comparable to this material, transient universe. His world is confined only to this present material life on earth. But regarding the life on other side of the grace he is utterly blind. Whereas the Quran compares the insignificance of this present life with the life after death, and eternal life.
“But above all else, we find this universe terrifying because it appears to be indifferent to life like our own; emotion, ambition, and achievement, art and religion all seem equally foreign to its plan”.
(Mysterious Universe page 2-3 para 5)
You are created, for a test not for enjoyment. The enjoyment shall come but in the life after death, provided that you deserved on the merit of your marks in this transient life.
“Hath created death and life that He might prove you, which of you is more righteous in (His) actions”.
Yet the complete indifference does not exist anywhere rather:-
“ Do ye not see that God hath subjected whatever is in heaven and on earth to your services and hath abundantly poured on you his favours (both) outwardly and inwardly?”.
(XXXI Lockman (3) (20 to 30)
“Which therefore of your Lord’s benefits will ye ungratefully deny?”.
(LV Alrahman (1) (13)
Perhaps indeed we ought to say (the universe), appears to be actively hostile to life like our own”.
Not the universe so much as the satan is hostile to man:-
“Satan is hostile to man”.
“For the most part empty space is so cold that all life in it would be frozen, most of the matter in space is so hot as to make life on it impossible “.
(The Mysterious Universe page 3 para 5)
Need not bother about space but think that you have:-
“A good country and a gracious lord”.
(XXXIV Alsaba (2) (15)
“And astronomical bodies continually bombarded by radiation of a variety of kinds, much of which is probably inimical to or even destructive of life”.
These are far fetched things are live and are protected by the power of God, but the bombardment of stones upon the disbelievers was severe and do we not ourselves expect the shower of atombombs any moment so the Quran says :-
“And dreadful was the shower, which fell on those who had been warned (in vain)”.
(XXVII Alnamal (4) (58)
(1) Into such a hostile universe we have stumbled if not exactly by mistake at least as a result of what may properly be described as an accident”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 3-4, para 6)
(2) “Life seems to be the product of the blind play of chance, just as six monkeys stumbling unintelligently on typewriters for millions of millions of years would be bound in time to write all the books in the British museum. But:-
“There falleth no leaf but he knoweth it, neither (is there) a single grain in the dark parts of the earth, neither a green thing, nor a dry thing, but it is (written) in the perspicuous book”.
( VI Alanaam (7) ( 59 to 60)
The term accident is erroneous in this case. God is here in complete control:-
Quran says :-
“Verily God sustaineth the heavens and the earth best they fail. And if they should fail, none could support the same besides him”.
They could not stumble by mistake into this universe; Because :-
“ Thy Lord createth what he pleaseth, and chooseth freely, but they have no free choice”.
(XXVIII Alkassas (7) (68)
“Life needs suitable physical conditions for its appearance, the most important of which is a temperature at which substances can exist in the liquid state”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 4, para 7)
“(We) made every living thing of water”.
(XXI Al-anbia (3) (30 to 32)
“The magnitude of the areas in which the life can possibly exist is incredibly small as compared to the areas in which life cannot possibly exist. Just for this reason it seems incredible that the universe can have been designed primarily to produce life like our own; had it been so, surely we might have expected to find a better proportion between the magnitude of the mechanism and the amount of the product. At first glance at least, life seems to be an utterly unimportant by-product. We living things are somehow off the main line”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 5, para 9)
Life like our own:-
“And he propoundeth unto us a comparison and forgetteth his creation”.
(XXXVI Yasin (5) (78 to 83)
“Is not He who hath created the heavens and the earth able to create (new creatures like unto them)”.
(XXXVI Yasin (5) ( 78 to 83)
To find the lack of proportion in the magnitude of mechanism and the amount of the product a mere absurdity”.
“We have estimated and how-nice and accurate estimaters we have been”.
(LXXVII Almursalat (1) (23)
“ Hath created all things and hath disposed (the same) according to a determinal will”.
(XXV Alfurqan (1) (2)
“With Him is everything regulated according to a determined measure”.
(XIIII Alraad (2) (8)
“At first glance at least life seems to be an utterly unimportant by product”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 5, para 9)
“ Thou canst not see in a creature of the most merciful any unfitness or disproportion. Life up thine eyes again to heaven, and look, whether thou seest any flaw, then take two other views and thy sight shall return unto thee dull and fatigued”.
(LXVII almulk (1) ( 1 to 6)
“As thou livest, they wander in their folly”.
(XV Alhijr (5) (72)
Life an utterly unimportant by product.
“”Did ye think that we had created you in sport and that you should not be brought before us”?
(Quran XXIII almominun (6) (115)
They are blind, because they are blind to the fact resurrection.
“We do not know whether suitable physical conditions are sufficient in themselves to produce life or whether some other accident or some vital force was also necessary”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 5. para 10-11)
Breaking of soul necessary:-
“First created man of clay and afterwards made his posterity of an extract of despicable water and then formed him (into proper space), and breathed of his spirit in to him, and breathed of his spirit into him, and hath given you (the senses of) hearing and seeing and hearts (to understand).How small thanks do ye return”.
(Quran XXXII Alsijdah (1) ( 7 to 9)
“An omnipotent creator subject to no limitations whatever would not have been restricted to the laws which prevail in the present universe; he might have elected to build the universe to conform to any one of innumerable other sets of laws. If some other set of laws had been chosen, other special atoms might have had other special properties associated with them. We cannot say what, but it seems a priory unlikely that either radioactivity or magnetism or life would have figured amongst them. Chemistry suggests that, like magnetism and radioactivity, life may merely be an accidental consequence of the special set of laws by which the present universe is governed”.
(Mysterious Universe page 8, para 14)
“Such propositions will lead us nowhere. To imagine of some other sets of laws of a nature quite different from these present is beyond human ken. Yet the same existing set of laws is a modified from are not a matter of fact. Yet some other sets of law some other universe or something is not even imaginable by the human mind as it is. Therefore “.
“Say, Is there with you any (certain) knowledge, (of what ye allege), that ye may produce it unto us? Ye follow only a false imagination, and ye only utter lies”.
(Quran VI Alanaam (18) (149)
Yet indeed is Omnipotent enough to introduce other new sets of laws:-
“God shall abolish and shall confirm (what he pleaseeth), with him is the original of the book”.
(XIII Alrad (6) (39)
“If he pleaseth he can take you away and produce anew creature (in your stead), neither will this be difficult with God”.
(XXXV Fatir (3) ( 16-17)
“Bare opinion attaineth not anything of the truth”.
(LIII Najam (2) ( 28 to30)
“So long as we think of the creator as a magnified man-like being, activated by feelings and interests like our own, the challenge cannot be met. If however, we dismiss every trace of anthropomorphism from our minds, there remains no reason for supposing that the present laws were specially selected in order to produce life”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 9 Para 15).
God a magnified man-like being”?
“There is nothing like Him””.
(XLII Alshora (2) (11)
Athropomism the rule of human race only. Therefore:-
“If we had appointed an angel (for our messenger) we should have sent him (in the form of) a man and have clothed (him) before them as they are clothed”.
(VI Alanaam (1) (9)
“Physics plays an incomparably greater part in the universe than biology. Viewed from a strictly material point of view, the utter insignificance of life would seem m to go far toward dispelling any idea that it forms a special interest of the great architect of the universe”.
(The Mysterious Universe page9 para 15)
“Verily the creation of heaven and earth (is) more considerable than the creation of man”.
(XL Momin (6) (57)
Yet this life is quite insignificant compared to the next life :- The Quran says:-
“The present life is no other than a toy and a plaything, but the future mansion of (paradise) is life indeed, if they knew (this). They would not prefer the former to the later”.
(XXIX Alankabut (7) (64)
“” A trivial analogy may exhibit the situation in a clearer light. And unimaginative sailor, accustomed to tying knots, might think it would be impossible to cross the ocean if trying knots were impossible. Now the capacity for tying knots is limited to space of three dimensions; no knot can be tied in a space of 1,2,4,5 or any other number of dimensions. From this act our unimaginative sailor might reason that a beneficent creator must have had sailor under his special patronage, and have chosen that space should have three dimensions in order that tying knots and crossing the ocean should be possibilities in the universe he had created in brief space was of three dimensions so that there could be sailors. Life indeed is as insignificant as the tying of knots for crossing the oceans and therefore could not be main object of the creator”.
(The Mysterious Universe page9, para 16)
To call such a sailor unimaginative is a wrong unusually great. However the Quran should come to our aid to clarify the matter.
The Quran says :-
“Have we not made him two eyes, and a tongue and two lip, and shown him the two highways (of good and evil)? Yet he attempeteth not the cliff”.
(XC Balad (1) (8 to 10)
The particular aptness in form and duty shown in their respective roles by various organs at least leads to the possibility that they were purposely created and ordained to prove further that life also have had a particular patronage of the Creator. Now please see the formation of the camel in a particular view of its environments that is the desert, and you shall not miss the amazing affinity between the creature and the environment to present some striking features.
“Do they not consider camels, how they are created”?
(LXXXVIII alghashia (1) (17)
Further proof of the significance of this life due to the fact of resurrection they shall positively find when they shall be driven actually to a three space dimension hell.
“Walk onto that which ye called a lie. Walk onto the covering having three branches, neither having the coolness of the shade, nor availing against the flame. It sends up sparks like palaces. As if they were tawny camels. Woe on that day to the rejecter”.
(LXXVII Almursalat(1) (29 to 40)
“The stars themselves are disqualified (for the production of life) by being too hot”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 4 para 7)
The stars are there to adorn the world:-
“We have adorned the lower heaven with the ornaments of a star”.
(XXXVII Alsafat (1) (6)
“Is much for the surprising manner in which, so far as science can at present inform us we came into being and our bewilderment is only increased when we attempt to pass from our origins to an understanding of the purpose of our existence, or to see the destiny which fate in store for our race”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 10 para 17)
The scientist has bewilderment only but Quran has a set purpose of our existence.
“Did ye think that we had created you in sport, and that you should not be brought before us?”.
(XXIII Almouminun (6) (115)
“I have not created genni and men for any other end, than that they should worship me. I require not any substance from them, neither will I that they feed me, verily God is He, who provideth for all creatures, possessed of mighty power”.
(LI Alzzariat (3) (56 to 58)
Since the whole creation is engaged in his worship obediently.
“Does thou not perceive that all (creatures) both in heaven and earth raise God and the birds (also) extending their wings? Every one knoweth his prayer and his praise; and God knoweth that which they do. Unto God (belongeth) the kingdom of heaven and earth, and unto God (shall be) the return (at the last day)”.
(XXIV Alnur (6) (41 -42)
“Life of the kind we know can only exist under suitable conditions of light and heat. We only exist ourselves because the earth receives exactly the right amount of radiation from the sun; upset the balance in either direction, of excess or defect, and life must disappear from the earth. And the essence of the situation is that the balance is very easily upset”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 10, para 18)
“And we are not negligent what we have created”.
(XXIII Almominun (1) (17)
But if God be so disposed as to upset the balance: He has even more abrupt means, ad-infinitum for he is the absolute governor perpetually on the control.
“And we send down rain from heaven, by measure, and we cause it to remain on the earth; we are also certainly able to deprive you of the same”.
(XXIII Almominun (1) (18)
There are other more ingenious methods.
“The lightening wanteth but little to taking away their sight”.
(II Albakarah (2) (20)
“Primitive man, living in the temperate zone of the earth, must have watched the ice-age descending on his home with something like terror; each year the glaciers came farther down into the valleys; each winter the sun seemed less able to provide the warmth needed for life. To him as to us, the universe must have seemed hostile to life”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 10, para 19)
Quran seems well acquainted the primitive and the modern and their necessities. Glorious Quran. A wonderful work only if you cared to read it sometime. You shall see miracles ad-infinitum.
“We have placed (the twelve) signs in the heaven, and have set them out (in various figures), for (the observation of) spectators; and we guard them from every devil, driven away with stones; except him who listeneth by stealth, at whom a visible flame is darted. We have also spread forth the earth, and thrown thereon stable (mountains), and we have caused every kind of (vegetables) to spring forth in the same, according to a determinate weight, and we have provided therein the necessaries of life for you, and for him whom ye do not sustain. Three is no one thing but the store houses thereof are in our hands, and we distribute not the same (Otherwise) than in a determinate measure. We also send the winds driving the pregnant clouds, and we send down from heaven water, whereof we give you to drink, and which ye keep not in store. Verily we give life and we put to death; and we are the heirs (of off things), we know those among you who go before (the primitive); and we know those who stay behind (the modern).And thy Lord shall gather them together (at the last day); for he (is) knowing (and) wise”.
(XV Alhijr (2) ( 16 to 25)
Indeed this passage alone was sufficient miraculously indeed to wonderfully picture the modern scientist and his disbelief despite his knowledge of the universe. Time and space would not allow us to dwell upon this amazing topic at length. They steal the knowledge from the universe, but the angels dart at them the flames and they never reach the truth, the belief.
“We of these later days, living in the narrow temperate zone surrounding our sun and peering into the far future, see an ice age of a different kind threatening us. Just as TANTALUS, standing in a lake so deep that he only escaped drowning, was yet destined to die of thirst, so it is the tragedy of our race, that it is probably destined to die of cold, while the greater part of the substance, of the universe still remains too hot for life to obtain a footing”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 10, para 20)
The Quran confirms in them the similitude of Tantalus a simile miraculously contained in the Quran; and it further compare those who invoke idols besides God, to a TANTALUS, just as the modern TanTalus would invoke the idol of knowledge. Which has proved incapable of fostering belief.
“ It is he who ought of right to be invoked. The (idols) which they invoke besides him shall not hear them at all, otherwise than he (is heard), who stretcheth forth his hand to the water, that it may ascend to his mouth, when it cannot ascend thither; the supplication of the unbeliever is utterly erroneous”.
(XII Alraad (2) (14)
You are please requested to read the whole passage the (rakuh) in question. Nay but always read the whole passage out of which but an ayat is herein quoted. You shall find wonderful correspondence and relevancy.
“The sun having no extraneous supply of heat, must necessarily emit ever less and less of its life giving radiation, and, as it dows so, the temperate zone of space, within which alone life can exist, must close in around it. To remain a possible abode of life, our earth would need to move in ever nearer and nearer to the dying sun, yet, science tells us, that so far from its moving inwards, inexorable dynamical laws are even now driving it far-third away, from the sun into the outer cold and darkness.
(The Mysterious Universe page 11, para 20)
“We have built the heaven with might and we are to give (it) a large extent”.
(LI Alzariat (3) (47)
“Do not the unbelievers therefore know, that the heaven and the earth were solid (one continued mass of matter) and we clave the same in sunder, and made every living thing of water? Will they not therefore believe? And we placed stable (mountains) on the earth, lest it should move with them, and we made broad passages between them for paths that they may be directed, (in their journeys) and we made the heaven a roof well supported. Yet they turn aside from the signs threof (not considering that they are the workmanship of God).
(XXI Alanbia (3) (30to 32)
So indeed the scientists who keep their telescope directed towards and fixed upon the heaven, yet the revelation of all the mysteries fail to foster faith and belief in their heart.
“And so far as we can see they must continue to move afar off, until life is frozen off the earth, unless indeed some celestial collision or cataclysm intervenes to destroy like even earlier by a more speedy death”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 11, para 20)
Quran repeats the same terms that is the celestial collision and cataclysm, but as warning to foster belief.
“Are ye secure that he who (dwelleth) in heaven will not cause the earth to swallow you up? And behold it shall shake? Or are ye secure that he who (dwelleth) in heaven will not send against you an (impetuous whirlwind) driving the sands (to overwhelm you?) Then shall ye know how important my warning was”.
(LXVII Almulk (2) (16-17)
“This prospective fate is not peculiar to our earth; other suns must die like our own; and any life may be on other planets must meet the same inglorious end”.
“Every thing shall perish except himself, unto whom belongeth judegement, and before him shall ye be assembled (at the last day)”.
(XXVIII Alkasas (9) (88)
“On (that) day the trumpet shall be sounded, and whoever are in heaven and on earth shall be stuck with terror, except those whom God shall please (to exempt therefrom) and all shall come before him in humble disguise”.
(XXVII Alnamal (7) (87)
“Physics tells the same story as astronomy. A “heat-death” in which the total energy of the universe is uniformly distributed and all the substance of the universe is at the same temperature, according to the second law of thermo-dynamics. This temperature shall be so low as to make life impossible. It matters little by life impossible. It matters little by what particular road this final state is reached; all roads lead to Rome, and the end of the journey cannot be other than universal death”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 11)
“Every thing shall perish except Himself”.
(XXVIII Alkasas (9) (88)
“Unto Him (God) is reserved the knowledge of the hour (of judgement)”.
(XLI Hamim Sijdah (6) (47)
“Every (of the heavenly bodies) sunneth an appointed course. He rodereth all things. He showeth his signs distinctly that ye may be assured, ye must meet your Lord at the least day”.
(XIII Alraad (1) (2)
“Is this then, all that life amounts to stumble, almost by mistake, into a universe which was clearly not designed for life, and which to all appearances, is either totally indifferent or definitely hostile to it, to stay clinging to a fragment of a grain, of grand until we are frozen off, to stut our tiny hour on hour tiny stage, with the knowledge that our aspirations are all doomed to find frustration, and that our achievements must perish with our race, leaving the universe as though we had never been?”.
(The Mysterious Universe page 11, para 22)
“When the sun shall be folded up, and when the stars shall fall, and when the mountains shall be made to pass away, and when young shall be neglected, and when the wild beasts shall be gathered together, and when the seas shall boil, and when the souls shall be joined (against their bodies), when the girl who hath been buried alive shall be asked or what crime she was put to death, and when the books shall be laid open, and when the heaven shall be removed, and when hell shall burn fiercely, and when paradise shall be brought near. Every soul shall know what it hath wrought. Verily I swear by the stars which are retrogate, which move swiftly (and) which hide themselves, and by the night when it cometh on, and by the morning when it oppereath, that these are the words of an honourable messengers, endued with strength, of established dignity in the sight of the possessor of the throne obeyed (the angels under his authority) and faithful, and your companion (Mohammad) is not distracted”.
(LXXXI Alakwir (1) (1 to 29)
Is then all that life amounts for them that believe not in resurrection:-
“They say (there) is no (other life) except our present life, we die and we live and nothing but time desroyeth us, but they have no knowledge in the matter, they only follow a (vain) opinion”.
(XLV Alhathia (3) (24)
“And that our achievements must perish with our race, leaving the universe as tough we had never been?”Quran:-
“But a terrible noise (from heaven) associated those who had acted unjustly, and in the morning they were found in their houses, lying (dead and) prostrate, as though they had never dwelt therein”.
(XI Hud (6) (67-8)
“Is this, then, all that life amounts to?”.
“There shall be but one blast (of the trumpet), and they shall say alas for us! This is the day of judgement; this is the day of distinction, (between the righteous and the wicked) which ye rejected as a falsehood”.
(XXXVII Alsaffat (1) (19-21)
“Every soul shall taste death and ye shall have your rewards at the day of resurrection, and he, who shall be far removed from (hell) fire and shall be admitted into paradise, shall be happy, but the present life is only a deceitful provision”.
(III Alamran 19. (185)
“Every (creature) which (liveth) on the earth is subject to decay, but the glorious and honourable countenance of thy Lord shall remain (for ever)”.
(LV Alrahman (2) ( 26-27)
But let the truth prevail at last. Let the truth of the Quran prevail in the end. After centuries of bewilderment and confusion in their scientific maze at least some of the scientist has begun to feel their mistakes, just as we shall see in the following quotation from the very same bookie. “The Mysterious Universe” by Sir James jeans, given out by its authors his opinion, although he has expected some opposition. Says, he “many will disagree with it was written to this end”. The whole chapter is indeed worth reading, but we are obliged only to quote but a para or two:- We have found it to have considerable accord with the Quran’s concept.
“Today there is a wide measure of agreement” says Sir James Jeans “which on the physical side of science, approaches almost to unanimity, that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality! The universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears as an accidental intruder into the realm of mater; we are beginning to suspect that we caught rather to hail it as the creator and the governor of the realm of matter—not of course our individual minds, but the mind in which the atoms out of which our individual minds have grown exist as thoughts.
The new knowledge compels us to revise our happy first impressions that we had stumbled into a universe which either did not concern itself with life or was actively hostile to life. The old dualism of mind and mater, which was mainly responsible for the supposed hostility, seems likely to disappear, not through matter becoming in any way more shadowy or insubstantial than heretofore, or through mind becoming resolved into a function of working of matter, but through substantial matter resolving itself into a creation and manifestation of mind. We discover that the universe shows evidence of a designing or controlling power that has something in common with our individual’s minds—not, so far as we have discovered, emotion, morality, or aesthetic appreciation, but the tendency to think in the way which, for want of a better word, we describe as mathematical. And while much in it may be hostile to the material appendages of life, much also is akin to the fundamental activities of life, we are not so much strangers or intruders in the universe as we first thought. Those inert atoms in the primeval slims which first began to foreshadow the attributes of life were putting themselves more, and not less in accord with the fundamental nature of the universe”.
So at least we are tempted to conjecture today, and yet who knows how many more times, the stream of knowledge may turn on itself? And with this reflection before us, we may well conclude by adding, what might well have been interlined into every paragraph, that every- thing that has been said, and every conclusion that has been tentatively put forward, is quite frankly speculative and uncertain. We have tried to discuss whether present –day science has anything to say on certain difficult questions, which are perhaps set for ever beyond the reach of human understanding. We cannot claim to have discerned more than very faint glimmers of light at the best; perhaps it was wholly illusory, for certainly we had to strain our eyes very hard to see anything at all. So that our main contention can hardly be that the science of today has a pronouncement to make, perhaps it ought rather to be that science should leave off making pronouncements; the river of knowledge has too often turned back on itself”.
THE CREATION OF UNIVERSE A PARADOXAND A VIEW OF COMPARATIVE TRENDSBETWEEN SCIENTIST AND QURANBY Allama Muhammad Yousaf GabrielYousuf_gabriel@yahoo.comwww.oqasa.org The inability of a scientist in recognizing order, design and plan in the universe is nothing short of a paradox. Referring to the Mysterious Universe by Sir James Jeans some amazing facts have come to light. The unscientific scientist philosopher has shown after some real painstaking, the probability of life being he result of a mere chance play of atoms. We have read this with care, and have found that there, could not be found a wonder greater than that a man whose whole mind be always and in every way taxed with the question of cause and effect, act and consequence, laws: natural, inexorable and scientific, plans, designs, plots and projects, propositions, theories, hypotheses and formula; the man who would not stir a finger without the use of balance, and would not wink even without telescope; whose note-book be from end to end filled with equations and square-roots; who could state no fact without the use of a language which consisted of words and terms such as rule, principle, law, concept, notion, perception and the like; namely the scientist, should turn purblind in the presence of glaring facts like design, plan, and order, that pervade the whole universe from one end to another; and would feign bewilderment at the purpose of man's existence, or the destiny which fate had in store for human race, not realizing in his predisposed zeal, that by denying design and purpose he did actually negate the truth of science itself, the very science on the dint of whose discovered truths, he sought to deny design and purpose; the science which pervaded his mind like the soul. Alas fro us humans. The very person from whom we expected light and clues to our problems, and encouraging word in our afflictions, be seen to grope his own way stumbling along a darkened labyrinth of doubt and uncertainty, stumbling and moaning in pity-exciting tones and drifting astray towards ever darker corners and gloomier slides, while mankind, hand-cuffed, fettered and blind-folded is being dragged towards a braying, honking, and hissing hell in fury; ablaze with materialistic fires, fanned by a storm of greed.COMPARISON BETWEEN THE TRENDS OF THE TWO PHILOSOPHIES THAT OF THE UNSCIENTIFIC SCIENTIST PHILOSOPHER AND THE QURAN: The philosophy as is to be found in the book " The Mysterious Universe" by Sir James Jeans has been read and its trends realized. To acquaint the reader with the expected trends of relative philosophies we intend to give brief idea now in comparison in the following outlines:-1. Life insignificant to the unscientific scientist philosopher, therefore unworthy of either the Creator's special interest, design, purpose, or subsequent resurrection, judgment and the other world. But the Quran whereas it recognizes the incomparable grandeur of the universe against the tiny little earth and admits the insignificance of life, there. Yet, in view of the significance of the other world presents this present life as important for its being the basis and the sowing field for the other world, and further as a proof of Creator's special interest in this present life. The Quran points to the whole Universe engaged in the service of this life on earth.2. The unscientific scientist philosopher has considered earth as of accidental nature and life as the product of blind play of chance. But the Quran has denied out--right any such possibility and has assured of Creator's perfect vigilance and complete control to the minutest detail throughout the creation continually, incessantly.3. The unscientific scientist philosopher has shown only bewilderment regarding the purpose of man's existence, whereas the Quran has explicitly given the purpose of man's existence as the worship of Allah, and a trial, as to " who among them is to be best in conduct".4. The unscientific scientist philosopher has considered the end of life as final without any probability of resurrection or revival, and has lamented the destruction of man's achievements,with the end of life, but the Quran has given out resurrection as an inevitable variety, and the achievements of men to accompany them on to the next world, for assessment and reward.Dear Sir,Kindly submit this article on your webpage for readers.

The effects of Jesus’s spiritualism and Bacon’s materialism
On the present world By Muhammad Yousaf Gabriel Yousuf_gabriel@yahoo.com
"When time Allur'd think how Bacon shined,The wisest, brightest, meanest of mankind".(Alexander Pope) Of Jesus was a light as shining as of the truth. It appeared and it dazzled and it left a dazzling reflection in the eye of mankind to the day of judgement. Jesus was the harbinger of pure spiritualism, and was a destroyer of materialism. Bacon in seventeenth century arose as the champion of materialism and as an antithesis to Jesus Christ. Of all the false prophets who simulated Jesus, Bacon has been one most successful. His philosophy gained universal acceptance, and was very deceptive. It promised a paradise on earth, and after a few glimpses of bliss, it has turned this earth into a hell, and is now ready to be consumed by the atomic hell, the logical consequence of Bacon’s philosophy of modern atomism.We are now treating the tree which produces such a fruit. Various lives of Bacon have appeared, but some of these may be regarded as penegyrical compositions bestowed on a redeemer by the grateful devotees, while others have presented the life of the Hero in true colours, but have regarded his philosophy as a real redeemer of mankind and the best of all the philosophies that ever appeared on earth. The reason of this is only that at the time at which these assessments of Bacon’s philosophy were made, the progress of science showed only the benefits and no problems. Indeed it could have been regarded in those times as a bliss unmixed. And now the modern science and progress, the fruits of Bacon’s philosophy are there in their final perspective and true realities. It is high time now therefore to discuss Bacon’s philosophy and reassess it in its present light. And let it be for ever remembered that, Bacon being an instrument of Anti-Christic spirit, and responsible for the most destructive of all the previous anti- religious revolutions in all previous human history, the truth both about his life and his philosophy has to be completely and clearly told in the interest of humanity which with its soul destroyed now stands on the verge of a most painful and most disgraceful end of its bodily existence, as a result of this very philosophy of Bacon. Humanity must now be warned without any reservations, not indeed with any intent of blackening any one’s memory but with the sole purpose of finding a relation between the philosophy and the mind which produced it, indeed, in reference to the circumstances, then prevalent. It is essential to know the mind that has produced a philosophy which has withstood and overcome every other philosophy, has gained complete sway over the entire world, has thrown every religion into the background, and leading the world through the promised bliss of earthly paradise for centuries together, partially full-filling the promise in its course, has eventually brought this world to the verge of universal destruction both of mind and of body. Thi work cane be mainly made on Macaulay’s essay on Lord Bacon. He has treated the conduct of Bacon with impartiality and has done every thing with admirable ability. The article of Macaulay is no doubt a masterpiece, in itself, though I stand in radical opposition to his view of Bacon’s philosophy. And yet inspite of my difference with Macaulay on the subject, it is impossible not to admire Macaulay’s great talent. He simply appears as bewitching. Macaulay likes the philosophy of Bacon because it multiplied human enjoyments, and it mitigated human sufferings. Macaulay praised Baconian philosophy under the inebriating influence of these two objects, and he was not in the wrong. Indeed at that time the world went in the first sweet swings of the achievements of Bacon’s philosophy, with the hectic background of the premodern west still fresh in memory, and no modern problems hand as yet appeared. We today stand on a different pedestal and see the things from a different frame of reference. The order of the things is reversed from what it was in Macaulay’s time. The Baconian philosophy now has begun to mitigate human enjoyments and multiply human sufferings, and that perhaps could have been tolerated. But apart-from that the Baconian philosophy now clearly threatens the existence of humanity through the flames of atomic hell. How dearly it is wished that Macaulay were himself alive today to see with his own eyes the error of his opinion about the philosophy of Baconian Atomism. And yet it appears doubtful whether Macaulay, if living today could have judged this philosophy aright, for we can see a world of the greater intellects blinking before it and lavishing the greatest praises on it, and ignoring all the various hazards that are incident on it. Indeed besides the blindness of the people of this age, their helplessness is proverbial. Bacon of all the philosophers from the beginning to the end enjoys a distinctive position in that, he did to the sons of Adam exactly that which the devil had done to Adam himself. Satan seduced Adam. Bacon seduced the sons of Adam, and the design of seduction is identical in both the cas. Today the fast changing, and deteriorating situation of this Baconian world reveals, that this Baconian culture is not now very far from the point of explosion. And a very miserable end it does portend. Another distinction which Bacon enjoys in this world is that whereas even the greatest of the prophets have claimed the allegiance of but a part of this world, Bacon's philosophy pervades the entire world from one end to the other.
In this Bacon’s life history it can be trie to reveal the mental and moral affinity that exists between Bacon’s life and his philosophy. We cn discern the hand of providence at play therein. Bacon’s philosophy may be regarded as the voice of the age and the cry of the times. The Western world stood then on the fence gazing with wonder and peeping with anxiety into the material world, pining after the sweet smells and inviting odours of the feast of nature. Bacon just gave them the signal. The theory (Atomism) which had failed in ancient world because of the want of congenial atmosphere succeeded in modern age because of the field well-prepared, in the presence of suitable mental conditions. The things which appear in the sight of the modern man as a source of joy and pride, would appear to a premodern generation as dreadful, grisly and hideous works of the devil. As far as Bacon is concerned, his heart was eaten up with the desire of wealth and power, and it is up to you to call his desire of wealth as the dream and his philosophy as the interpretation, or vice versa, that is his philosophy as the dream and his life as the interpretation.www.oqasa.orgAdara Afqar e Gabriel Quaid e Azam Street nawababad wah cantt distt Rawalpindi, Pakistan
