Islam (/ˈɪslɑːm/;[note 1] Arabic: الإسلام‎, al-ʾIslām IPA: [ælʔɪsˈlæːm] ( )[note 2]) is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion articulated by the Qur'an, an Islamic holy book considered by its adherents to be the verbatim word of God (Allāh), and for the vast majority of adherents, also by the teachings and normative example (called the Sunnah and composed of hadith) of Muhammad (c. 570–8 June 632 CE), considered by most of them to be the last prophet of God. An adherent of Islam is called a Muslim. Most Muslims are of two denominations: Sunni (75–90%)[8] or Shia (10–20%).[9] About 13% of Muslims live in Indonesia,[10] the largest Muslim-majority country, 25% in South Asia,[10] 20% in the Middle East,[11] and 15% in Sub-Saharan Africa.[12] Sizable minorities are also found in Europe, China, Russia, and the Americas.

Science in the Quran Introduction: The following documents just some of the evidence which demonstrates that the Quran could not have been written by man, rather a supernatural source must have been involved. For example, we find statements in the Quran which agree with modern science which was only discovered recently. Obviously a man living in the desert 1400 years ago could not have knowledge of such scientific facts. In addition to that, there are many clear prophecies which we have seen fullfilled in recent times. Please examine the evidence for yourself and draw your own conclusions. Evidence for Islam Featured Articles * Are there any scientific errors in the Quran? Scientific evidence in Islam Prophecies in Islam Archaeology in Islam Common Objections * None of these claims impress me! Physical barriers in the seas He has let loosed the two seas meeting together. Chapter 55:19, 20 of the Quran states that there are barriers in the sea. And finally, this barrier can not been seen with the naked eye. 1.

Grounding – The Ultimate Healing Technique? The amount of barriers to healing is a long and sordid list, with a dirty food, water and air supply sitting at the top. Combine that with a poor relationship with the sun and the earth, and true healing becomes very difficult. However, if we can reignite our connection with the earth by grounding, we may find healing becomes a lot easier. What is grounding? Grounding, also known as earthing, is based on research showing that having a connection to the earth’s electrical energy promotes physical well-being. Turns out, its one of the core foundations for true health and an absolute requirement for healing the body. The pioneer and the science Clinton Ober, a recognized pioneer in the concept of earthing, knew that the earth’s surface is made up of negatively charged ions, which contain extra electrons. Ober finally received support in 2004, after many years of personal research, when the Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine published one of his studies. Sources:

Christianity Christianity is an Abrahamic religion that began as a Jewish sect in the mid-1st century.[9][10] Originating in the Levant region of the Middle East, it quickly spread to Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor and Egypt. It grew in size and influence over a few centuries, and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire, replacing other forms of religion practiced under Roman rule.[11] During the Middle Ages, most of the remainder of Europe was Christianized, and adherents were gained in the Middle East, North Africa, Ethiopia and parts of India.[12][13] Following the Age of Discovery, Christianity spread to the Americas, Australasia, sub-Saharan Africa, and the rest of the world through missionary work and colonization.[14][15][16] Christianity has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization.[17][18][19][20][21] Beliefs Creeds Its main points include: Ten Commandments These are quotes from Deuteronomy 6:4 and Leviticus 19:18.

Muslim Scholar Tariq Ramadan: Radical or Reformer? On a recent afternoon, Tariq Ramadan, the outspoken Muslim scholar and professor of contemporary Islamic studies at Oxford University, took the stage at Georgetown University's Gaston Hall. Ramadan stood alongside John Esposito, professor of international affairs and Islamic studies at Georgetown, holding court on "radical reform" in Islam and parrying with a warm, supportive audience. The room was filled with students and others, including women in headscarves, women with bare heads, journalists and professors. Such a gathering might sound relatively unremarkable for the nation's capital, except for this: Tariq Ramadan was banned from the United States for six years, a visa restriction lifted in January by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. That's because Ramadan, whose name is as often mentioned with the word "radical" as with "reformer," had become a lightening rod, a discussion point for post-9/11 restrictions on travel, ideas and the place of Islam in democracies.

Judaism Judaism (from the Latin Iudaismus, derived from the Greek Ἰουδαϊσμός, and ultimately from the Hebrew יהודה, Yehudah, "Judah";[1][2] in Hebrew: יהדות, Yahadut, the distinctive characteristics of the Judean ethnos)[3] is the religion, philosophy and way of life of the Jewish people.[4] Judaism is a monotheistic religion, with the Torah as its foundational text (part of the larger text known as the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible), and supplemental oral tradition represented by later texts such as the Mishnah and the Talmud. Judaism is considered by religious Jews to be the expression of the covenantal relationship God established with the Children of Israel.[5] Judaism includes a wide corpus of texts, practices, theological positions, and forms of organization. Judaism claims a historical continuity spanning more than 3,000 years.

Islam - Conférences - Cheikh Imran Hosein Nazar La Confiance en Dieu - Sens et bienfaits du Tawakkul 7,50 € La confiance en Dieu (at-tawakkul) est l'une des conditions de la réalisation complète de la foi en Dieu.C'est la représentation concrète de la foi, et l'une des meilleures expressions des coeurs. L'imam Ibn al-Qayyim voyait en elle la moitié de la religion. Il a dit : "La confiance en Dieu est la moitié de la religion, et l'autre moitié c'est le retour vers Dieu." Cette question d'une importance considérable, mérite toute notre attention en raison des confusions qui l'entourent dans l'esprit de beaucoup de gens, dûe à une mauvaise compréhension de la signification de cette expression : placer sa confiance en Dieu, s'en remettre à Dieu (at-tawakkul). Ils considèrent en effet que s'en remetre à Dieu revient à récuser la causalité et négliger les devoirs.

The Story of Jesus - Interfaith Issues - counsels Dear Haris, Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah, We know about Isa (peace be upon him) is based on the two sources of the Holy Qur'an and hadith. With this, we can judge the material in the Gospels and in the books of history; and we can sift what could be true from what is evidently false there. On the above basis, the following can be said about Jesus Christ or Isa ibn Maryam (peace be upon him), and of course Allah knows best: Jesus was born in Nazareth (could be Bethlehem) miraculously (i.e. without a father) as the son of Maryam, during the reign of Tiberius Caesar, the Roman Emperor. He said: "I am indeed a servant of God: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet; "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live; "(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable; "So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)"!
