As with quadratic outcomes these two events happened simultaneously. One of my friend left Islam and i met a person who accepted Islam without a logical reason. He just got peace while in Islam. However, inspirational drives and spontaneous decisions are always fragile. To accept a lifestyle we need conviction.
While discussing with the non-believer (ex muslim) i came across many arguments which are very much self explanatory and do not contradict any scientific facts. When i clarified; the discussion hopped on to different questions and then casual laugh and emotional discharges which was difficult for me to handle, so i left the discussion. I generally avoid any discussion which is having any slightest hint of contempt among the idea being discussed. If you are to be firm in what you believe and violate the logic and reasoning and ridicule with occasional LOLs i love to be defeated. Pride, ego, contempt and envy is satanic and i say “Auzubillah himinash shaitan-nir-rajeem“.
One of the argument discussed was about the story of DhulQarNayn in chapter 18 verse 86. This was quite self explanatory that Quran do not say that the Sun sets in a muddy ground, but refers to the psychology/observation of DhulQarNayn that he found Sun to be setting in a Spring of dark mud.
[Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it [as if] setting in a spring of dark mud, and he found near it a people. Allah said, “O Dhul-Qarnayn, either you punish [them] or else adopt among them [a way of] goodness.]
There are plenty of references where the verse is explained : http://www.understanding-islam.com/q-and-a/miscellaneous-issues/regarding-al-kahaf-18-86-a-scientific-error-5198
Plus there was a Hadith where Prophet refers Sun to sets in hot spring of water. If we do some research we may find this to be erroneous as well : http://www.understanding-islam.com/q-and-a/miscellaneous-issues/where-does-the-sun-set-hadith-error-9541
Leaving apart the points of criticism, the only scientific piece of verification about the “celestial orbits and planetary motion” is mentioned in Quran. The only book with a reference to “Big Bang theory” is the Quran.
Recently i watched this video [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuCPgpQl34g]. Well the verse 5:47 is about the original Injeel which was revealed to Jesus for Jews and Quran says: This is obligatory for them to follow them. This stands true and as Old Testament and Jesus’s prophecy commands to follow Muhammad (pbuh), Christians and Jews should follow. However if you take verses out of context and water-shed the translations, may Allah save you. Plus the logic of other guy in same video in the end (Nabeel Q) is not right. It is said about those who followed Torah to follow Torah and Torah prophesied Muhammad (pbuh) in clear Hebrew language [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_Dhog9nr9o]. People should have a look on the reference. Muhammad is mentioned by name in Original scriptures Song of Solomon 5:16 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_Dhog9nr9o
And they disable the comment section in YouTube. Bravo.
One more observation for this guy Nabeel Q about 15:91. Just to enlighten audience to me as a general reader of Quran, this talks about those who take Quran’s text in bits and pieces and give a different meaning as the people in video are doing.
[And together with the Pagans they used their underhand scheming to discredit the Quran by fragmenting it into parts, labelling some as sheer poetry, some as legendary and others as divinatory, and fed the pilgrims thoughts with their falsehood.]
If you really want to live a life of joy, pleasure, lust, romance and freedom what you comprehend, no one will stop you. Go and seek. However if you genuinely want to counter an argument counter it like a man of understanding. Present the argument or fact which can be debated. This will require you to study, learn and devote time. At times we don’t have time. We love partying, fun, drinks, laughs, lust and fall pray to the admirations which we love to be with. We do not have time, and if have some, we use it in criticising which we do not want to understand. I call this Satanic.
If you find your life fulfilling and peaceful without Islam, its OK. Islam says “There is no compulsion in religion”. In the day of judgement when Allah will ask a person to be set himself free of hellfire in exchange of all worldly benifits, he will say “Yes”. However Allah asked only to believe in the miracles which was bestowed on us and nothing more. This is called bankruptcy and people will wish to be dirt rather being human. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfzTlK074eg]
Allah will not send you in hellfire as you are not a muslim. Instead humans will come with a load of sins. Allah will definitely ask: “Did you make use of the framework i sent to you via Prophet Muhammad to get rid of the sins?”. This framework is Islam. If we fail to make use of it in safeguarding ourselves, its our failure.
We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness? http://quran.com/41/53
I feel myself blessed with the knowledge of Urdu, Hindi, English, Arabic (basics), my early study in Islam and Almighty’s blessings that i can understand and comprehend where seekers of this world get pleasure and bliss in darkness of evils.
