“Read the Qur’an, for verily it will come on the Day of Standing as an intercessor for its companions.”
- The Prophet Muhammad [sallAllahu 'alaiyhi wasallam]
Sura Al-Fatiha [1-7]
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. (1) [All] praise is [due] to Allah, Lord of the worlds - (2) The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, (3) Sovereign of the Day of Recompense. (4) It is You we worship and You we ask for help. (5) Guide us to the straight path - (6) The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray. (7)
அளவற்ற அருளாளன், நிகரற்ற அன்பாளன், அல்லாஹ்வின் பெயரால்! (தொடங்குகிறேன்). (1) அனைத்துப்புகழும், அகிலங்கள் எல்லாவற்றையும் படைத்து வளர்த்துப் பரிபக்குவப்படுத்தும் (நாயனான) அல்லாஹ்வுக்கே ஆகும். (2) (அவன்) அளவற்ற அருளாளன், நிகரற்ற அன்புடையோன். (3) (அவனே நியாயத்) தீர்ப்பு நாளின் அதிபதி(யும் ஆவான்). (4) (இறைவா!) உன்னையே நாங்கள் வணங்குகிறோம், உன்னிடமே நாங்கள் உதவியும் தேடுகிறோம். (5) நீ எங்களை நேர் வழியில் நடத்துவாயாக! (6) (அது) நீ எவர்களுக்கு அருள் புரிந்தாயோ அவ்வழி, (அது) உன் கோபத்துக்கு ஆளானோர் வழியுமல்ல, நெறி தவறியோர் வழியுமல்ல. (7)
►'Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (Alone).'
►"They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? Say, "Its knowledge is only with my Lord. None will reveal its time except Him. It lays heavily upon the heavens and the earth. It will not come upon you except unexpectedly." They ask you as if you are familiar with it. Say, "Its knowledge is only with Allah , but most of the people do not know."
Surat Al-'A`raaf [7:187]
►"The truth is from your Lord, so never be among the doubters.."
Why hadn't Jesus got a father?
Jesus is a Human Being, he was descended from human beings, & inherited their chromosomes.
God is not a human being, He is above that, He is a "God"
God doesn't have to turn in to a human to make people believe in Him, He sent Prophets & Holy Books & gave us the free choice to believe or disbelieve.
Christians ask: if God isn't his father, who is his father?
The Holy Quran answers: "Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, "Be," and he was." Surat Al-Imran
But why did God ordain that (i.e. to give Jesus that miraculous supernatural birth from a mother without a father)?
Jews –to whom Jesus was sent- were very MATERIALISTIC, their hearts were as hard as stones or even worse. When u read the Old Testament you'll find it concentrating on (the material): the decoration of the temple, the uniform of the priests, the names, the numbers, the statistics, etc…
So God sent them a spiritual miracle which is against material & beyond natural laws; a human from a mother without a father.
Jesus himself came up against their materialism later:
when the disciples asked him why he spoke to Jews in parables, he answered that "For this people’s heart is waxed gross" (look at Matthew 13: 10- 17).
Jesus pronounce woes upon the scribes & Pharises many times because of their materialism, e.g. when he described them as "whited sepulchers" (which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleannss ) Matthew 23: 27
also he tried to make them understand that religion is not just ceremonies & rituals, but it is a light in the heart, a mercy, a faith, a piety.
e.g.: "11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." Matthew 15: 11
On the other side Christians were extremely spiritual, they made him a god & third of three & worshipped him.
But Islam is in between & gives you the whole truth, " O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our Messenger making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the Scripture and overlooking much. There has come to you from Allah a light and a clear Book." Surat Al-Ma'idah
Salim ibn Abu Al-Ja’d reported: Jesus son of Mary, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Blessed is he who guards his tongue, whose house is sufficient, and who weeps for his sins.”

Abdullah ibn Hubshi reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, was asked, “Which deed is best?” He said, “Faith in which there is no doubt; a struggle in which there is no theft; and accepted pilgrimage.” It was said, “Which prayer is best?” He said, “The one in which is a long standing supplication.” It was said, “Which charity is best?” He said, “Charity given while you are struggling in need.” It was said, “Which emigration is best?” He said, “An emigration away from what Allah the Exalted has forbidden.” It was said, “Which struggle is best?” He said, “To struggle against the idolaters with your lives and wealth.” It was said, “Which martyrdom is best?” He said, “One whose blood is shed along with his horse.”

Mountains to Stabilize the Earth
By: Dr. / Zaghloul El-Naggar
On the authority of Anas ibn Malik (A.S.) who said: the Prophet (PBUH) said:
“When Allah created the earth, it started to shake. So He created the mountains, fixing them into it, therefore it stabilized. The angels then wondered about the hardness of the mountains asking: "Allah, is there any thing in Your creation which is harder than the mountains? He said: "Yes, iron ". Then they asked: "O Allah, is there anything in Your creation which is harder than iron?' He said: "Yes, fire." They asked: 'O Allah, is there anything in Your creation which is harder than fire? He said:" Yes, water." They asked: 'O Allah is there anything in Your creation which is harder than water? He said: "Yes, the wind." They then asked:" Is there anything in Your creation which is harder than the wind?" He said: Yes, a man who gives charity with his right hand, concealing it so that no one can see him.”
Explanation of the Hadith
This noble hadith coincides, both in form and in content, with the saying of the Ever-Truthful:
﴾ And the mountains He has fixed firmly ,' to be' provision and benefit for you and your cattle ﴿
(Surat An-Nazi'at (Those Who Pull Out): 32-33)
This context is repeated in nine other verses of the noble Qur'an , (namely ar-Ra'd , 3 , al-Hijr , 19 , an-Nahl , 15 , al-Anbiya’ , 31 , an-Naml , 61 , Luqman , 10 , Fussilat , 10 , Qaf , 7 , and al-Mursalat , 27) which signifies the importance of the preparation of the earth to be populated .
The word ' Earth ' recurs in the Glorious Qur'an and in the Prophet's Ahadith referring to three other meanings according to the context. Sometimes it refers to the whole planet and at other times, to the dry mass on which we live, while at some other times, it indicates the topsoil covering the dry land rocks.
Scientists have differed greatly in their understanding of the role of the mountains in stabilizing the earth. This difference arises because the total agglomerate of the mountains above the earth's surface, gigantic as it is, amounts to nothing when compared to the whole mass of the earth, which amounts to about six million trillion tons. Besides, the length of the mountains, great as it is, does not amount to much in relation to the radius of the earth, as the difference between the highest mountaintop on earth, and the deepest oceanic depression is almost twenty kilometers (19.715 kilometers) while the Hemisphere is 6.378.160 kilometers. Hence, the geomorphology of the earth seems minute in comparison to its radius (19.715), with a percentage not exceeding 0.03%.
A logical question therefore arises: how can the mountains stabilize the earth, while their mass and dimensions are so small when compared to the earth's mass and dimensions?
It was not until the mid sixties that the answer became known. It appeared that the lithosphere runs through a tremendous network of faults that extends for tens of thousands of kilometers, wholly encompassing the earth. They vary between 65 and 150 kms in depth. Therefore, they result in rupturing the lithosphere into a number of isolated plates leveling with these faults. These plates float over a supple, half-molten, highly dense and viscid layer known as the earth's asthenosphere. This layer abounds with active thermal currents taking the form of violent vortexes of convection currents. They drive the plates away from each other, or bring them into collision with such velocities that make it impossible to live on.
The violent motion of these plates is only calmed through the consecutive formation of mountain chains till they reach their final stage. This is achieved by completely consuming the ocean platform that separates two remote continents. One continent pushes the platform under the other continent till the two collide compressing the rock aggregate between them into great mountain chains extending with their wedges, which fasten the rocks of both continents together just like a wedge fastens down a tent .
This process occurred when the Indian Continent moved towards Asia. They collided resulting in the formation of the highest and most recently formed, Himalaya Mountains.
Concerning the earth as a planet, we know that the rotational motion around its axis has changed its completely circular shape into a spheroid, slightly bulging at the equator, and slightly flat at the poles. This equatorial protrusion of the earth caused the rotational axis to change its direction in a slow motion called 'Precession'. The term refers to the slow gyration of Earth's axis around the pole of the ecliptic, caused mainly by the gravitational pull of the sun, moon, and other planets of Earth's equatorial bulge. The mountain chains with their deep roots in the lithosphere , (whose depth comes to about ten to fifteen times their height above the earth's surface) tend to subside these violent motions , lessen the powerful staggering of the earth's rotational axis and make the earth more stable and orderly in its rotation around the axis . The mountains also, attenuate the violent movement of the earth in such a way that a tire attenuates percussion during rotation.
This is a clear example of the scientific inimitability in the Prophet's hadith in which he says: “When Allah created the earth it started to shake. So He stabilized it with mountains”. As it was mentioned before, the noble hadith accords, in form and in content, with ten verses of the noble Qur'an.
