"بكيت لأنه ليس لدي حذاء، بعد ذلك رأيت رجلاً ليس لديه أرجل" - تذكر دائماً ان هنالك شخص ما أقل حظاً منك فاحمد لله على النعم التي تملكها.. Always remember that there is someone less fortunate from you, so always say AlHamdulilah for the blessings you have..
Atheism: The belief that there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing, and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs.
Atheism = fail
With ample evidence discovered by science, the thesis of an "infinite universe" was tossed onto the scrap-heap of the history of scientific ideas. Yet, more important questions were forthcoming: what existed before the Big Bang? What force could have caused the great explosion that resulted in a universe that did not exist before?
There is a single answer to be given to the question of what existed before the Big Bang: Allah, the All-powerful and the Almighty, Who created the earth and the heavens in great order. Many scientists, be they believers or not, are obliged to admit this truth. Although they may decline to admit this fact on scientific platforms, their confessions in between the lines give them away. Renowned atheist philosopher Anthony Flew says:
"Notoriously, confession is good for the soul. I will therefore begin by confessing that the Stratonician atheist has to be embarrassed by the contemporary cosmological consensus. For it seems that the cosmologists are providing a scientific proof of what St. Thomas contended could not be proved philosophically; namely, that the universe had a beginning. So long as the universe can be comfortably thought of as being not only without end but also beginning, it remains easy to urge that its brute existence, and whatever are found to be its most fundamental features, should be accepted as the explanatory ultimates. Although I believe that it remains still correct, it certainly is neither easy nor comfortable to maintain this position in the face of the Big Bang story. (Henry Margenau, Roy Abraham Vargesse, Cosmos, Bios, Theos, La Salla IL: Open Court Publishing, 1992, p. 241).
Some scientists like the British materialist physicist H. P. Lipson confess that they have to accept the Big Bang theory whether they want it or not:
"If living matter is not, then, caused by the interplay of atoms, natural forces, and radiation, how has it come into being?… I think, however, that we must…admit that the only acceptable explanation is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject that we do not like if the experimental evidence supports it. (H. P. Lipson, "A Physicist Looks at Evolution", Physics Bulletin, vol. 138, 1980, p. 1 3 8 ) .
In conclusion, science points to a single reality whether materialist scientists like it or not. Matter and time have been created by a Creator, Who is All-Powerful and Who created the heavens, the earth and all that is in between: Almighty Allah, .
"It is Allah, Who created the seven heavens and of the earth the same number, the Command descending down through all of them, so that you might know that Allah, has power over all things and that Allah, encompasses all things in His knowledge." (Surat at-Talaq: 12)
If you try to help a butterfly as it tries to break out of its cocoon (by cutting the cocoon), the butterfly will simply die. Its struggle to break from the cocoon is essential to get its heart beating and give strength to its wings and overall vitality! Allah knows if life has no struggles and is all too soft, we would die due to lack of meaning, and we would grow too weak to be able to achieve anything valuable!
Today is all that you Have!! ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ When you wake up in the morning, do not expect to see the evening live as though today is all that you have. Yesterday has passed with its good and evil, while tomorrow has not yet arrived. Your life's span is but one day, as if you were born in it and will die at the end of it. With this attitude, you will not be caught between an obsession over the past, with all its anxieties, and the hopes of the future, with all its uncertainty. Live for today- During this day you should pray with a wakeful heart, recite the Qur'an with understanding, and remember Allah with sincerity. In this day you should be balanced in your affairs, satisfied with your allotted portion, concerned with your appearance and health.

The cross is a pagan symbol that was adored in many pagan religions thousands of years before Jesus was born.
The Catholic Church adopted the cross symbol at least 600 years after Jesus was supposedly crucified.
One of the early famous Christians named "Tertullian" rejected the crosses and said that pagans worshipped crucified saviors hanging on a cross.
He says "Crosses, moreover, we Christians neither venerate nor wish for. You indeed who consecrate gods of wood venerate wooden crosses, perhaps as parts of your gods. For your very standards, as well as your banners, and flags of your camps, what are they but crosses gilded and adorned? Your victorious trophies not only imitate the appearance of a simple cross,but also that of a man affixed to it." [www.biblestudy.churches.net/CCEL/FATHERS2/ANF04/ANF0434.HTM]

__ Say, "O People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth and do not follow the lusts and fancies of a people who went astray before and misled many and have strayed from the straight path." (Quran 5:77)
“Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.” (Al Qur’an, 2:222)
Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala (exalted is He) loves those who always return to Him. Imagine being beloved to Allah because you always go back to Him. Nothing deters you—not your sins, nor your heedlessness.
You go because you know you have a Lord who accepts you turning back to Him.
