Quran: The Word of God

I am not a Muslim scholar however I will try to make my case: Why Quran is the word of God. There is a verse in Quran states that: "If it was not from God they would find a great difference". Let us here imagine that Quran was not the word of God and the messenger Muhammad (PBUH) made it up or it was inspired by Satan as some in the West believe. Let us examine what difference it will be if it was not from God:1- Weakness: the words of the speaker of Quran is strong from its beginning to its end. If not from God will find like in human speech times of weakness and contraction. I challenge you to read any page and think if this is the power and glory of a God or a human who is talking to us.2- Politics: There is no politics in Quran. It is God who created us speaking to all humans as his slaves. He is not praising a group of people except when they are following his commands. He is not mentioning names of famous Arabs or tribes to get their approval. His not mentioning Muhammad (PBUH) friends or family members and so forth.3- Different commandments: almost the same ten commandments that when broken are considered major sins as it is in the bible. Same strong God as in the bible who revenge to his commandments (which are ultimately good for humans). I do not think Satan would tempt us to follow God's commandments.4- Different Prophets: though God did not mention all the prophets in Quran he mentioned the most famous and those who suffered the most. He told their stories several times in the book. He praised them and according to their sufferings the 5 mentioned most were Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be on them all). So the prophets were different in their Sharia (religious laws) they carried the same core: worshipping God and morality. Quran did not create different prophets but same link with same chronological order.5- Not Moses and pharaoh: God loves this story and he repeated over and over in the bible and the Quran ( 7 times). It basically tell you the common struggle between the believers and oppressed against the unbelievers and oppressors or tyrants. It is the story of most prophets in the bible and even in our political history. Pharaoh was a kind of believer he believed in himself and denied his creator. You love it when God turned pharaoh wickedness with a striking defeat. He let him too close to catch the Israelites then all of sudden he split the water and after they passed through it he drowned pharaoh and his soldiers. At that point pharaoh said "I believed in what Beno Israel believed in" but it was too late for him. The stories of the common prophets you read them and enjoy them in the Quran. Why someone would create all of these stories. Why he got them that right as if he was watching with his own eyes. Why specifically Moses and pharaoh unless he is the same God who enjoyed his glory against the injustice of the pharaoh so he went down to earth to teach every tyrant this big lesson.6- Different good and evil: Same Good and evil struggle and same temptation of Satan to us as he did to Adam and Eve. Quran carried same story. I do not think Satan will inspire the Quran to warn us of himself and his temptations to us or ask us to worship and glorify God.7- Playing politics with the Jews and Christians: Same message to Jews and Christians since Quran started. If Quran was not from God you will find a lot of politics to win the Jews and Christians. It was clear from the beginning God was angry with the Jews at times when they did not follow his prophets and God anger was also strong against the misguided Christians who took Jesus as his real son. There is no compromise or politics from the start. If it was not God's words you would find much politics. The real politics are to be played by Muslims themselves to try to have harmony with the Jews and Christians. It is how to win them and in same time you are not changing God's words. It is very simple if they still do no believe in the Quran as God's word we can wait for the Christ he will come in few years. With his glory as he descent from heaven all people around the world will believe in him. He will tell us all the truth. What Muslims are asking is for all of us to get righteous and prepare for his second coming.8- Heaven and hell: As we do in our life with our children, with our employees and even between nations people use the carrot and stick. For God you would expect to have both of them great. Both were mentioned in the Quran with a lot of details. Any one would make that up and pretend that God said that you expect him to be the first who will fear hell. People who question God mercy should understand that the requirements to go to heaven are few and very good to all of us. If someone would tell me that we will beat you up everyday and you will go to heaven for eternity I will tell him I got a good deal.9- Not criticizing Muhammad (PBUH): it does not make sense to me if the Quran was created by Muhammad to criticize himself. In the few times God corrected his messenger he made it clear to him it is a mistake and told him what should be the right. As an Example when he was preaching to the leaders of the Arab tribes and he avoided a blind poor man. God made it clear that this man does not come after them. This man name is Abn Maktoum and after that Muhammad (PBUH) would give him the best reception when he sees him telling him "you are the man God had blamed for". I do not think Muhammad (PBUH) would create a book and criticizes himself.As God mentioned in Quran talking to Muhammad (PBUH) "and so we inspired you through our spirit (Gabriel) with our message, and before that you did not know what the book and what the faith, but we made it (the Quran) a light that guides who we would like from our slaves, and you are a guide to the straight path" Quran 42:52.

Humanism: The New World Religion

Over long decades people have suffered much from communism, socialism, immoral capitalism, fascism, nationalism and religious wars. Humanism should be our new world religion. It does not abolish any religion or mix religions. It simply means we can all have the freedom to worship, choose any religion or no religion. We can still be Americans, Egyptians, British.... Humanism simply states that we should not be fanatic about nationality, religion or ethnicity. Humanism means that we humanize people. We remind them we all have much in common and few differences. Our desires and aspirations are the same. Selfishness and greed are very inhumane. We should come together to create the international system that fulfill the aspirations of each family in the earth. We have to create the system of moral capitalism where large corporations can make money, even a lot of money and meanwhile contribute to the welfare of humanity. We need an international system that prevents wars before they happen, atrocities before they are committed and diseases before they become epidemics. To create this system we have to be as much inclusive and transparent in our relations to others. Few politicians acting smart in closed doors is the worst for international affairs. This does not preclude the dialogue between religions. It is better done by very open-minded people who are expert on comparative religions or by unbiased search. There is no monopoly for the truth we all should seek the truth. I should feel happy if my Christian neighbor is feeding his children a good meal and his not struggling to survive. Humanism is the primary world religion and the heart of most religions. That is why I want to see it become the world new religion.

Authenticity Of The Quran

Authenticity Of The Quran As Muslims we were asked by the messenger Muhammad (PBUH) not to believe or disbelieve the people of the book when they mention verses from the Bible. This made a lot of sense to Muslims since Quran is the last revelation. If there is some differences you would believe the last revelation. It is rare for most Muslims to read the bible. This is simple most find the Quran is just too compelling that it is difficult to imagine a human can invent it. For Satan to inspire Muhammad with the Quran would appear foolish to most Muslims. However, some Muslims particularly now in this turning point of history are reaffirming their belief and examining the Bible and Quran to be sure they are not in the wrong side of both the truth and history. The authenticity of the Quran is confirmed by many facts:1- It was written down minute by minute. As the Angel Gabriel would inspire Muhammad (PBUH) Muslims would write it down. This allowed Muslims to learn and absorb the Quran over 23 years. They felt the connection to heaven all the time during Muhammad life. He would tell them this verse goes to this sura and the other to the other sura. It was like you are putting different parts of a machine in place without looking at the design which was a miracle in itself.2- Then they will recite it in their prayers which is 5 times a day. Many including the messenger would pray for hours each night.3- Many of the first Muslims including the messenger and then many over the last 1400 years had recited the whole Quran. It is just easy to watch in an Arabic T.V channel like Akra (read) children from different parts of the world reciting many sura of Quran or even the whole Quran.4- In the month of Ramadan: the messenger would recite the Quran to the angel Gabriel (updated version) and before the messenger death he recited the Quran twice to Gabriel.5- The Hadith that contain the sayings of the messenger that are separate from Quran were not written as per the messenger request so the writers do not confuse it with the Quran. It was written after his death.6- God promised "the verse: who is more trustworthy to keep his promise than God" to keep it as it is and he kept his promise (the verse:" it is we (God) who brought down the revelation (Quran) and it is we who will sustain it").Both the old and new testaments are inspired by God. However the accuracy is less than that of the Quran. Jesus was a great prophet and though the idea of having a God who sacrifice his son for our sins is a noble one the Quran strongly defy it. Salvation is by the teachings of the Christ and Muslims came through the Christ. Taking care of every one of the planet regardless of his religion is the core of Jesus message. Uniting through our humanity is the way to deliver his message.

The Real Passion

I saw the Passion of the Christ. No doubt is a great movie, however I would loved most to see the Message of the Christ. That is what we need to learn most nowadays. With the degradation of morality and the widespread corruption the message of the Christ is all we need to learn and apply now. The real passion in this world is to spread the common good and fight corruption between all of us. Who killed the Christ (as Christians believe) or were attempting to kill him (as Muslims believe) is corruption and jealous. The same enemies of every messenger. It is of no value to know their ethnic or religious background particularly if we hope for a messianic era. There is no anti-sematism in Islam. God praised the Jews when they were righteous and condemned them when they were not as he did in the old testament. God did the same for the Muslims particularly their hypocrites and those who did not follow his right path. Satan wants us to fight for religious identity and domination. God on the other hand wants us to share the baseline of all religions "being righteous". He wants the most righteous (from all religions and even non believers) to form the hierarchy of governments since it is much easier to spread morality and honesty vertically than horizontally.

Sex in The American Media Circus

I want America to take one thing from Islam that makes every one life easier. Though Islam believes much on virtue and family values, regarding sex it prohibits anyone to talk about the sex life of anyone else. If one sins a close friend who finds out advise him to follow God Commandments and he should not tell any body. Except of course for pedophilia and rape. Even people who never or rarely sins they should not say about their virtue since it opens the door for unfruitful discussion. God wants us to avoid sinning and if it happens does not want us to get the bad consequences. Satan, on the other hand wants us to sin and get the bad consequences of sinning. Islam believes in avoid sinning by avoiding close encounter between men and women at educational institutes and work places particularly one on one encounters in a closed place. In the west infidelity and sexual abuse commonly occur in schools and work places. It is simple, sexual drive is strong and it is easier to prevent than to live with the consequences of sinning. The western media that enjoyed scandals made it a lucrative business to some women and their lawyers to get the rich and famous men after a stupid sexual encounter or a planned well temptation. Fight over sexual orientation can be easily avoided if we keep sex out of public eye. I have Taman Health Plan that covers all Americans regardless of sexual orientation for health care and long term care. In return no discrimination against someone for his sexual orientation and no bride in expressing someone sexual orientation. Basically do not ask and do not tell. Let us all threw sex behind our back so we can have more time to other compelling world problems. As a whole community we continue to teach virtue and appreciate that God's blessings to those who follow his commendments. Privately, if some one to sin it is between him, God and people involved in the relationship.

The Theory of Evolution: Needs Evolution

There should not be a problem to have students study the theory of evolution as by Darwin and others. However, they have to be taught two things: it is a theory and there is another theory "the creation". They can learn the latter from their religious sources. Charles Darwin, in his books (The Origin of Species 1859) and (The Descent of Man 1871), presented his theory of evolution. He presented the theory of the Mechanism of Natural Selection or survival of the fittest. More evolutionists contributed to the theory trying to deflect criticism. These are the common critics of the theory:1- Basic material: Even if you are successful to trace the universe to one atom and life to one cell you will not be able to answer: who created the atom and cell. 2- The theory of "spontaneous generation", which asserts that non-living materials came together to form living organism has been rejected. The great evolutionists like Russian biologist Alexander Oparin and American chemist Stanley Miller experimented to prove that a living cell could originate by coincidence but failed and they admitted their failure. 3- The conditions required for the formation of cell are too great in quantity to be explained away by coincidences. The DNA molecule is so complex that it cannot be accidental or coincidental. 4- Lamarck and Darwin believed in the transferring of traits of one species to the other. They maintain that living creatures passed on the traits (new DNA) they acquired during lifetime to the next generation. Giraffes evolved from antelopes and bears transformed into whales. However, the laws of inheritance discovered by Gregor Mendel (1822- 1884) and verified by the science of genetics have nullified the theory of evolutionary mechanism. 5- Sharing the some of DNA material between animals point to a creator rather than spontaneous mutations (Neo-Darwinism). In humans spontaneous mutation as we study it in medicine result in disease and deformities not eloquent new species. 6- The fossil record theory of Darwin, which was a basic contention, has been rejected on scientific grounds. According to this theory, every living species has sprung from a predecessor. No "Transitional Forms" have yet been uncovered. On the contrary, the British Paleontologist, Drerk v. Ager in "The Nature of the Fossil Record" admits that the fossil records shows not gradual evolution but the sudden explosion of one group at the expense of another. This is just the opposite of Darwin's assumptions.6- Man is the blend of Matter and Soul. Darwin and other evolutionists could deny it or ignore it but human observations are just too compelling even to intellectuals. For a scientific proof you need observation and experiment. There is no experiment that evolutionists can produce in the laboratory to prove their observation. Humans' observation is more stronger than the photos of some apes that looked more erect over millions of years. 7- The brain which is the most advanced in humans compared by any species is very difficult to explain how it can evolve from lower animals. We do not pass to our children through our sperms or eggs our knowledge, social or political skills. They have to learn it. Even intelligent people have to develop their brain more through learning. If they have intelligent children they will look like most of us. Learning will not cause us to evolve into new species or for our brains to grow into large balloons. Similarly, you can not expect lower animals to develop the sophisticated human brain by learning alone.For me the theory of evolution is stuck in its beginning, middle and end. In the beginning: the origin of material!! in the middle: adding new DNA for acquired traits resulting in new species !! and in the end: human brains are just too sophisticated to evolve from lower animals. As you see the theory of evolution failed to evolve in these three essential steps. Compiled my thoughts with scientific facts from Islam And Darwinism: By: Prof. Maqsood Jafri.

Sexual Revolution and Moral Degradation.

I was listening to this gentleman on c-span discussing his book. He was explaining that we are almost alike in the west with Islamic values except for sex. We struggled with that for years and we are over that now. I was very surprised to hear that from him. I can understand people can sin and God forgive sins. But to cancel God law to Moses (PBUH) is a challenge to God. It says to God the law was wrong and we finally discovered that. You can do what you want. In my home I can walk on the walls it is not anyone business. But to say to God the law is wrong we know better, you better be very sure there is no God to begin with. In one of T.V channels an author was discussing her book of how to cheat. The opposite we used to hear people advocates!!. Let me explain below why sexual revolution had led to degradation of civilizations:1- In old testament at times when there were sexual corruption God pushed people to fight and kill each other, or say he would let them to Satan to do his work. Muslims and Christians are not any different.2- Sexual diseases over years have affected people and HIV is a new disease that can be traced to few decades ago.3- Even with contraceptive methods still unwanted pregnancies occur.4- Parents who have children out of marriage are more likely not to want to have these children. They are more likely to abort them. If they are delivered and when the children grow up they have a lot of conflicts and pain with no feel of love of the fathers who commonly dump them. Compare that with planned conception from loving married parents.5- Cheating in marriage commonly end in divorce and breakdown of families. Children are the victims of the infidelity of parents. Huge money is lost in the country from broken marriages.6- Morality is a group work and immorality is infectious so if we are agreeing that sin is the norm we are giving the green light for moral disintegration.7- Cheating is wickedness and make people also wicked in other morals. It is more common to have people who cheat to be wicked in other areas of their lives. The longer people cheat and the more the widespread of infidelity is the more the disintegration of morality and the collapse of civilizations. Two women who were very wicked and harmed me I found them to be both were long-time cheaters, no surprise, thanks God non were my relatives.8- Sex for profit became very common and even children exploited for sex.9- High crime rate is associated with sexually-free societies.I can understand people can sin at times. But God plan to us to put the mechanisms to prevent sin and how to recover from them. Encouraging marriage and preventing divorces should be the tasks of governmental and religious institutions. To challenge God and say the law is wrong you are simply inviting his wrath. God is just if any of us were God he would have blown up the world long time ago.

The Dialogue.

The most important way to achieve a universal peace in the world is through Dialogue. It is not that easy otherwise would be no wars over the ages. But human maturity is in the epic of mastering knowledge and absorbing wisdom that it make us the generation that is able to do it. The dialogue needs however all of the following:1- Understanding.2- Absence of bias and prejudices.3- To put oneself on the other one shoes.4- Respect.5- Controlling anger despite all the grievances.6- To believe there is no one hold all the truth.7- Even if we do not agree on every thing there is a lot of things we can agree upon.8- To listen more than to talk.9- Not to interrupt. To express ones ideas without criticizing other peoples. Not to personalize dialogue it is about the contents of dialogue and not about the speakers.10- To be perceptive to new ideas.11- To be ready to change positions when convinced.12- Not to oppress anyone and allow all people to participate in the dialogue.13- however for all to acknowledge that politicians and diplomats are the ones who is officially represent different countries. Dialogue according to topic has its elites. If NASA is running a discussion or dialogue I would just shut up and listen to the scientists.14- We all should have in our background that we all humans and we should have the dialogue that ends by a consensus or at least understanding and acceptance to one another.

Prophet Joseph (Yusuf) In The Quran.

I have chosen here selective verses from Joseph (Yusuf) sura: 012.003 "We narrate to you the best of narratives, by Our revealing to you this Quran, though before this you were certainly one of those who did not know". The bible stories in the Quran are strong proof to Muhammad (PBUH) and all of us that the God of the Quran is the same of the Bible. 012.007 "Certainly in Yusuf and his brothers there are signs for the inquirers". Joseph (Yusuf) is one of the best Bible/Quran stories since it gives a lot of signs to the truth of religion: Satan temptations, jealousy, moral corruption, patience, visions and the ultimate victory of good over evil and the fulfillment of God promise.012.009 "Slay Yusuf or cast him (forth) into some land, so that your father's regard may be exclusively for you, and after that you may be a righteous people". This is how Satan invoked jealousy in the heart of Joseph brothers and put in their heads plans to get rid of him.012.016 "And they came to their father at nightfall, weeping". 012.017 "They said: O our father! Surely we went off racing and left Yusuf by our goods, so the wolf devoured him, and you will not believe us though we are truthful". Prior to these two verses his brothers succeeded in putting him in a well (previous verses) and then came to their father with the wolf story.012.021 "And the Egyptian who bought him said to his wife: Give him an honorable abode, maybe he will be useful to us, or we may adopt him as a son. And thus did We establish Yusuf in the land and that We might teach him the interpretation of sayings; and Allah is the master of His affair, but most people do not know". Joseph was found in the well and brought to Egypt where he would start a new life in Egypt.012.022 "And when he had attained his maturity, We gave him wisdom and knowledge: and thus do We reward those who do good". The reward of being righteous has been commonly wisdom and knowledge.012.023 "And she in whose house he was sought to make himself yield (to her), and she made fast the doors and said: Come forward. He said: I seek Allah's refuge, surely my Lord made good my abode: Surely the unjust do not prosper". This is the sexual temptation that Joseph was tested for and was able to resist.012.035 "Then it occurred to them after they had seen the signs that they should imprison him till a time". Though he had proved himself innocent, they put him in prison.012.043 "And the king said: Surely I see seven fat kine which seven lean ones devoured; and seven green ears and (seven) others dry: O chiefs! Explain to me my dream, if you can interpret the dream". In the prison Joseph was famous in interpretation of the visions. The king had this vision that no one knows its interpretation.012.045 "And of the two (prisoners) he who had found deliverance and remembered after a long time said: I will inform you of its interpretation, so let me go:" One of them who was delivered remembered that Joseph interpreted a lot of visions in the prison.012.046 "Yusuf! O truthful one! Explain to us seven fat kine which seven lean ones devoured, and seven green ears and (seven) others dry, that I may go back to the people so that they may know". 012.047 "He (Yusuf) said: You shall sow for seven years continuously, then what you reap leave it in its ear except a little of which you eat". 012.048 "Then there will come after that a year in which people shall have rain and in which they shall press (grapes)". 012.054 "And the king said: Bring him to me, I will choose him for myself. So when he had spoken with him, he said: Surely you are in our presence today an honorable, a faithful one". Thus Joseph came out of prison to be the minister of the treasury.012.056 "And thus did We give to Yusuf power in the land-- he had mastery in it wherever he liked; We send down Our mercy on whom We please, and We do not waste the reward of those who do good". 012.057 "And certainly the reward of the hereafter is much better for those who believe and guard (against evil)".012.058 "And Yusuf's brothers came and went in to him, and he knew them, while they did not recognize him".012.059 "And when he furnished them with their provision, he said: Bring to me a brother of yours from your father; do you not see that I give full measure and that I am the best of hosts?012.060 "But if you do not bring him to me, you shall have no measure (of corn) from me, nor shall you come near me". In the next verses they brought their brother and Joseph told him the story. Then he told them every thing since they put him in the well.012.091 "They said: By Allah! Now has Allah certainly chosen you over us, and we were certainly sinners". 012.092 "He said: (There shall be) no reproof against you this day; Allah may forgive you, and He is the most Merciful of the merciful.012.099 "Then when they came in to Yusuf, he took his parents to lodge with him and said: Enter safe into Egypt, if Allah please".012.100 "And he raised his parents upon the throne and they fell down in prostration before him, and he said: O my father! This is the significance of my vision of old; my Lord has indeed made it to be true; and He was indeed kind to me when He brought me forth from the prison and brought you from the desert after Satan had sown dissensions between me and my brothers, surely my Lord is benignant to whom He pleases; surely He is the Knowing, the Wise".012.111 "In their histories there is certainly a lesson for men of understanding. It is not a narrative which could be forged, but a verification of what is before it and a distinct explanation of all things and a guide and a mercy to a people who believe". The lesson of Joseph story is that of life itself: the evil (jealousy and temptations) against the good. Joseph was tested through most of his life with separation from his parents, fear in a well, oppression in a prison, sexual temptations and jealousy of his brothers. God tests all of us in one way or another. Muslims commonly read Joseph story when they are going through trials. It gives hope and make you feel there is always light at the end of the tunnel.Translation To Shakir.

The Intelligent Design.

Why people need proof of intelligent design when there is no proof of random design. On the other hand, the theory of evolution needs too much effort to trace the evolution of one species or to try to prove one species has evolved to another. It does not prove or disprove there is a creator behind the evolution. If you asked a child 3 years and a boy 14 years old to draw a car for you and the 3 years old made scribbled lines while the 14 years old draw a car you can say about the second draw there is intelligence behind it. God states in The Quran "who (God) gave everything its creation and then gave it its guidance". For example the DNA is created by God and the DNA continue to do the cellular functions each DNA is made for. If there is no God who did that. If you do not accept God I have this for you. All the cells of human body came into one room. One cell stood up and greeted all other cells "you doing a great job, we need to continue to control every thing well, we need to maintain the homeostasis (steady state of body): body temperature, fluid, electrolytes, glucose, calcium, hormones, red blood cells,.... everything with a tight range. We need those doctors to find everything within the normal range when they check them. All cells made sounds to express their agreement. As the cells started to leave the room one cell asked the leading cell "are you the intelligent design". The leading cell shacked her head and smiled "yes it is me". She was a liar every cell has its brain (DNA) or intelligent design. The DNA is the brain of the cell it was created at certain point. It continues to do its functions that it was guided to do. Even if an organ control other organs there is no one cell or organ can say I am the one that control all other organs or cells. There is no creator cell or a God cell. All are the creation of God. To understand the intelligent design you need to find the smallest part of matter or living organism that can represent them (molecule or DNA respectively). If you can not prove a random design you accepted the intelligent design. If this intelligent design is not God please give me a name.

Atheists and Agnostics I agree, But.

If you do not agree with the critics of religions in many things they say you are religious fanatic. If you find that the truth of religion is proclaiming what they think about you are in their side, but a real believer. These are the common sayings of some famous atheists and agnostics:Francis Bacon: Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philosophy, to natural piety, to laws, to reputation; all of which may be guides to an outward moral virtue, even if religion vanished; but religious superstition dismounts all these and erects an absolute monarchy in the minds of men.My answer: Islam is compatible with sense, philosophy, piety, laws, and reputation. There is no monarchy one is free to find God and to reason with every thing in religion. Few are unseens are left to faith but almost every thing is amenable to mind. George Santayana: My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image to be servants of their human interests.My Answer: Man created religions or used religions to serve their interests. This is well described in the religion of Islam.Gore Vidal: I'm a born-again atheist.My answer: I am born-again Muslim and reborn every day Muslim I reassert my faith daily through the same tool Gore is using, human brain.Henny Youngman: I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up . . . they have no holidays.My answer: no comment I love the joke.Pearl S. Buck: When men destroy their old gods they will find new ones to take their place.My answer: This is the difference between finding your God or creating one.Pearl S. Buck: Believing in gods always causes confusion.My answer: Humans can confuse everything even religion. Every one of the major three religions came to us as one sect and people confused them and split them into many.Protagoras: As to the gods, I have no means of knowing either that they exist or do not exist.My answer: I have means the Bible and the Quran. I have no means to prove that man is not created by a God I have never found that chance can create a very complicated structure like me.Thomas Jefferson: Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.My answer: I agree and I think Jefferson was a man who knew God.

The Theory Of Evolution: Common Descent Or Common Creator.

People who are advocates to the theory of evolution are already believers in the intelligent design. By definition evolution itself is an intelligent design. According to Douglas Theobald, Ph.D. "In spite of the extensive variation of form and function among organisms, several fundamental criteria characterize all life. Some of the macroscopic properties that characterize all of life are (1) replication, (2) heritability (characteristics of descendents are correlated with those of ancestors), (3) catalysis, and (4) energy utilization (metabolism). At a very minimum, these four functions are required to generate a physical historical process that can be described by a phylogenetic tree." He attributes however this design to a common descent. According to Dougals "If every living species descended from an original species that had these four obligate functions, then all living species today should necessarily have these functions (a somewhat trivial conclusion). Most importantly, however, all modern species should have inherited the structures that perform these functions. Thus, a basic prediction of the genealogical relatedness of all life, combined with the constraint of gradualism, is that organisms should be very similar in the particular mechanisms and structures that execute these four basic life processes." He confirms his hypothesis by the discovery of the same biochemical that serve these structures" The structures that all known organisms use to perform these four basic processes are all quite similar, in spite of the odds. All known living things use polymers to perform these four basic functions. Organic chemists have synthesized hundreds of different polymers, yet the only ones used by life, irrespective of species, are polynucleotides, polypeptides, and polysaccharides. Regardless of the species, the DNA, RNA and proteins used in known living systems all have the same chirality, even though there are at least two chemically equivalent choices of chirality for each of these molecules. For example, RNA has four chiral centers in its ribose ring, which means that it has 16 possible stereoisomers—but only one of these stereoisomers is found in the RNA of known living organisms."The common descent theory is strengthened by the discovery of DNA and RNA. According to Douglas " Ten years after the publication of The Origin of Species, nucleic acids were first isolated by Friedrich Miescher in 1869. It took another 75 years after this discovery before DNA was identified as the genetic material of life (Avery et al. 1944). It is quite conceivable that we could have found a different genetic material for each species. In fact, it is still possible that newly identified species might have unknown genetic materials. However, all known life uses the same polymer, polynucleotide (DNA or RNA), for storing species specific information. All known organisms base replication on the duplication of this molecule. The DNA used by living organisms is synthesized using only four nucleosides (deoxyadenosine, deoxythymidine, deoxycytidine, and deoxyguanosine) out of the dozens known (at least 99 occur naturally and many more have been artificially synthesized) (Rozenski et al. 1999; Voet and Voet 1995, p. 969). Moreover, the functions of organisms are through enzymatic catalysis of proteins that constructed from same subset of 22 amino acids " In order to perform the functions necessary for life, organisms must catalyze chemical reactions. In all known organisms, enzymatic catalysis is based on the abilities provided by protein molecules (and in relatively rare, yet important, cases by RNA molecules). There are over 320 naturally occurring amino acids known (Voet and Voet 1995, p. 69; Garavelli et al. 2001); however, the protein molecules used by all known living organisms are constructed with the same subset of 22 amino acids." According to Douglas "There must be a mechanism for transmitting information from the genetic material to the catalytic material; all known organisms, with extremely rare exceptions, use the same genetic code for this. The few known exceptions are, nevertheless, simple and minor variations from the "universal" genetic code (see Figure 1.1.1) (Lehman 2001; Voet and Voet 1995, p. 967), exactly as predicted by evolutionary biologists, if common descent were correct, years before the genetic code was solved (Brenner 1957; Crick et al. 1961; Hinegardner and Engelberg 1963; Judson 1996, p. 280-281)." Thus evolution theory advocates are right. Some macroscopic properties characterize all of life. These properties are due to same group of biochemical substances that result from chemical reactions by catalytic enzymes. The later is doing that through a genetic code transmitted by the genetic material. As you noted it is an intelligent design of evolution. There are also other proofs to suggest a common decent to life. However, life could be due to a common creator who may or may not used the common descent for species or created from similar materials all the species. It is poosible that God did or allowed some genetic mutation to happen to improve survival of species. The encoded DNA the miracle of creation is just very intelligently designed that necessitate a creator behind it. It is like the universe and law of physics too much intelligence that call all of us to believe in a creator.

Praise To God In Quran.

1- Angels praise God:7:206 Those who are near to thy Lord, disdain not to do Him worship: They celebrate His praises, and bow down before Him. إِنَّ الَّذِينَ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لاَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِهِ وَيُسَبِّحُونَهُ وَلَهُ يَسْجُدُونَ

2- All creation praise God:17:44 The seven heavens and the earth, and all beings therein, declare His glory: there is not a thing but celebrates His praise; And yet ye understand not how they declare His glory! Verily He is Oft-Forbear, Most Forgiving! تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَالأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ وَإِن مِّن شَيْءٍ إِلاَّ يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدَهِ وَلَـكِن لاَّ تَفْقَهُونَ تَسْبِيحَهُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ حَلِيمًا غَفُورًا

3- Men of God praise him in every situation:3:191 Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (With the thought): "Our Lord! not for naught Hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire.الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىَ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا بَاطِلاً سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

4- The loosers are those whose hearts are hardened against the praise of God:39:22 Is one whose heart Allah has opened to Islam, so that he has received Enlightenment from Allah, (no better than one hard-hearted)? Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against celebrating the praises of Allah. they are manifestly wandering (in error)!أَفَمَن شَرَحَ اللَّهُ صَدْرَهُ لِلْإِسْلَامِ فَهُوَ عَلَى نُورٍ مِّن رَّبِّهِ فَوَيْلٌ لِّلْقَاسِيَةِ قُلُوبُهُم مِّن ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ أُوْلَئِكَ فِي ضَلَالٍ مُبِينٍ

Aversion To Islam.

The paradox of Islam is if you look superficial it does not look attractive or even repulsive but if you look deep you find it amazingly sound. I will mention here why is that?1- The prophet of Islam Muhammad (PBUH) is always compared to Jesus (PBUH). Both are carrying the same message of spirituality and God's commandments. The message of Jesus is to win humanity by love. The message of Muhammad is to win humanity by sound government that allow us to create the just humanity. To tell you the truth both did no work most of the history. Simply Satan was able to get his guys most of history to take over governments. His guys could be Muslims, Christians or other religions. There no doubt some periods in history had great leaders of any or no religion. But Satan continued to be the princess of the world.2- Islam was described as the religion of worriers and Christianity the religion of Saints. The truth is in both there were worriers and Saints. In both there is great spirituality. But one has to be spiritually right. Reading both the Quran and Bible are the way to know the God of Abraham our father.3- Women as a second class citizens in Islamic communities. The fact she was less than a citizen before Islam. The flexibility in Islamic interpretation of Sharia law and the progress of societies should continue to allow us to advance the rights of women. In the same time we would prevent her from becoming a commodity like in some cultures.4- Islam religion of materialism: the truth it is the religion of moral capitalism where people continue to make money and lift other people with them.5- For many Christians Jesus is the savior and anything else come short. I have no problem but just let you know that if Christ was alive today he would be angry of what our world looks like. The ten commandments are broken, the rich is oppressing the poor and the strong is threatening the weak with the blessings of many religious leaders in both great religions.6- I do not like a lot of Muslims. I have the same problem and I am a Muslim. I love a lot of Christians and I am not a Christian.

Submission (Islam and Muslims) Versus belief (Iman and Believers).

Faith is a confirmed belief. The mental part is submission and the one who submit is Muslim. The spiritual part is belief, the one who believes is a believer. In Quran God talk to us as believers mainly and we say about ourselves Muslims since God know our heart. Muslim means that you acquired the reasons that make you submit. It is a qualitative adjective while believing is quantitative. Verses 28:52 and 28:53 describes the Christians and Jews who converted to Islam they believed but they described themselves as Muslims as a humility to God.28:52 Those to whom We sent the Book before this,- they do believe in this (revelation):الَّذِينَ آتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ مِن قَبْلِهِ هُم بِهِ يُؤْمِنُونَ28:53 And when it is recited to them, they say: "We believe therein, for it is the Truth from our Lord: indeed we have been Muslims (bowing to Allah's Will) from before this.وَإِذَا يُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ قَالُوا آمَنَّا بِهِ إِنَّهُ الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا مِن قَبْلِهِ مُسْلِمِينَThe disciples of Jesus used the verb believe in verse 5:111 but described themselves as Muslims.5:111 "And behold! I inspired the disciples to have faith in Me and Mine Messenger. they said, 'We have faith, and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims'".وَإِذْ أَوْحَيْتُ إِلَى الْحَوَارِيِّينَ أَنْ آمِنُواْ بِي وَبِرَسُولِي قَالُوَاْ آمَنَّا وَاشْهَدْ بِأَنَّنَا مُسْلِمُونَThe Israelites believed but they asked God to die as Muslims. Thus faith can go up and down but the baseline is submitting have to be maintained. That is why people need to strengthen their faith but try always to speak to God of their submission despite the hardship and the fluctuation of their faith.7:126 "But thou dost wreak thy vengeance on us simply because we believed in the Signs of our Lord when they reached us! Our Lord! pour out on us patience and constancy, and take our souls unto thee as Muslims (who bow to thy will)!وَمَا تَنقِمُ مِنَّا إِلاَّ أَنْ آمَنَّا بِآيَاتِ رَبِّنَا لَمَّا جَاءتْنَا رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَتَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَSubmission to God message since Adam is what God wants us to say. The first to submit are the prophets. Islam is the last submission. As believers we differ in the strength of our faith. To pray to God and praise him even at hard time prove your submission and strengthen your faith.

Denying God with Confidence.

I saw an atheist in a Larry King T.V show. I could understand that atheist can be suspicious of God existence. The thing astonished me about this nice lady is how sure she was of his non-existence. I did not hear all her arguments. But one of them was: that everyone follow the religion of their parents. That is right in the materialist world when everyone is busy with his life and want social religion on the side. When there were active religious recruiting in Christianity and Islam people converted to either religion. Even for a lot of people in the same religion there is active struggle in man's mind between faith and no-faith. Actually faith itself is degrees. At personal level when one has a lot of suffering or at a nation level when the country runs through crisis humans question their faith. However, if one reads the bible and Quran one finds the same struggle even for the close followers of prophets. If one to understand that by default humans like their father Adam are created to be in heaven one has to regain his faith. If he understands that the few years in earth is a short test that and if he passes the test he reclaim his palace in heaven he would suffer and carry on. If he remembers that the enjoyment and God gifts for most of us are more than suffering we would agree and alleviate the suffering of other people. If one reads from Islam that all children who die go to heaven (I do not know about dogs) he understands there is a lot of compassion waiting for us. If he reads Islam and know that doing one good act earns you 10 points and one evil act only one point again you would understand how much compassion is waiting for us. If one knows by being righteous as God wants us we all will enjoy heaven in earth (feel free to worship or not) and in the eternal life (you have to worship God and believe in heaven). So it is simple there is a God and there is a lot of compassion but God wants us to start here in earth with each other if we would like to have it in the day of judgment. It is normal for humans to seek more evidence. That is why God gave miracles to the prophets and in Islam the Quran is the everlasting miracle. So to be confident there is no God you have to read the Quran first and unequivocally deny it is from God. I tried to do that my self and I became a strong believer. Please refer to the topic God's existence proofs in my blog as well other topics in Islam.

Jesus Belong To All Of Us.

Jesus is not a republic or democrat. He is not a sole Muslim or Christian. He belongs to all of us. His message is clear is to win the world by love. His enemies were strong and their wickedness was huge. God could have destroyed all his enemies but his salvation timed to God's wisdom and will and not us. The message of the Jesus is that of justice and equality. His message is all about humanity. It transcends through all ages and to all people. Islam is very pro-Christ and we believe our salvation is through his teachings. Muhammad carried the same message with different approach. If you study religion you find prophets that never fought and others were ordered to fight for their religions. In history like in Noah God destroyed humans in few hours or days. Islam is a practical religion. He does not order you to love your enemy but to try to win him with logics and find a way of peaceful existence whenever possible. Good government does not only provide good living to all its citizens including your enemies but it can unite people with the baseline of their religions: humanity, the common good and morals. For Jesus to come back we have to be ready to receive him. For sure he would not come in the same situation as his first coming otherwise people may consider crucifying him. This is why many prophecy writers in Christianity and Islam believe in the time of tribulation. It is hard time to all people and God wants us to go back with our hearts and minds to him. Our salvation is in our hands we deserve Christ when we are ready for him Muslims, Christians or others.

My Twilight Zone.

A lot of people think we are at the end of times. I personally do not know for sure but there are a lot of signs everywhere. I feel like I am four persons together living in the same house.Person one is a religious one gets his information about the end of times from prophecies in the three major religions and related web sites like imam AL Mahdi or Christians web sites as those who are predicting the rupture.Person two is a very serious one that follow the geopolitics in media avenues and see if any thing sound like the end of time.Person three is the funniest one he gets information about end of times from the Hollywood movies like 40 years old virgin, chicken little, ice age 2 and bench-warmers. Those people in Hollywood look like they know things that we do not know.Person four is the real me a boring physician who goes to work almost every day.When I look at the mirror I startle myself I find four of me in the mirror looking in different directions.I look like this gentleman in the T.V who always loose a loan to ditech. In one of the ads there were four of him knocking the same door and they all were turned down for a laon from ditech.

Freedom From All Oppression.

Oppression is the worst abuse humans can suffer. For a lot of people death can be preferred over oppression. There are a lot of faces for oppression:1- Occupation.2- Tyrant regimes.3- Oppression against women.4- Oppression of minorities.5- Discrimination with all its forms: race, color, gender, sexuality...6- Poverty.7- Sins.8- Fear: second to tyranny, absence of health and long term security, sins...9- Insecurity: physical and sexual abuse, violent societies, absence of health and long term security...10- Debts.11- Religious oppression to people with different faith or no faith.As you see to liberate the human mind and spirit there are a lot of things that need to be done. The UN and world leaders both political and religious have to work it out to liberate the human soul and mind. This can be done with a lot of politics and not wars. There is no absolute evil and good. Many times people against us are not our enemies but the other side. If every one is to be fair and put his foot on other person shoe we will have a lot of understanding and we can change the world. People who follow prophecies think the world will change only through the tribulation that God will inflict on humans. I do not know, I keep reading prophecies, meanwhile we have to use the sound politics and judgment to change the world. Prophecies ultimately reflects our judgments and actions.

How to Integrate "Integrity" in a Society.

In Webster dictionary the word Integrity -- Firm adherence to a code, especially moral or artistic values; incorruptibility has been the word that most searched in 2005. If it would tell you something it would tell you how people are eager to have integrity everywhere in public and private lives. To establish integrity in a society you have to find the ways that allow you to do so:1- Group act: Integrity as other moral values or as I say it is the abbreviation of moral values have to be a group act.2- The row models: In order to build a hierarchy of a community that have integrity you have to Put on the top the best of us regardless of their religion, race , color and so forth.3- Democracy: the first enemy to corruption is democracy. That is no wonder that most of the non-democratic regimes are corrupt.4- Collective consciousness: People in closed doors tend to be corrupt while they are likely more moralistic when they feel they are in the open air. So in every place people have to feel the public eye. If they are religious they would have double dose since they will feel before that God's eye.5- Free responsible and incorruptible media: this will make it possible to people to keep an eye on politicians, government officials and all areas that may have the potential to corrupt.6- Take away the avenues of corruption: like extreme poverty, closed medical records, motor vehicle accidents insurance with minor injuries used by corrupt people to drain the system, frivolous law suits and so forth.7- Teaching morality and ethics even separate from religion in the education system.8- Cut down or eliminate social causes that lead to dysfunctional families: alcoholism, drugs, high divorce rate, sexual abuse, child abuse, 9- Create hopeful societies in early life of individual through health and long term security.10- Teach honesty and transparency as way of life instead of secrecy that create and encourage corruption. It is understandable that people do not or should not know every thing about you but there is things that they have to know like a patient who knows his medical record.11- Teach forgiveness that allow people to admit their mistakes and feel no guilt and fear so they learn to lie and corrupt.12- Discourage the pick on, mean-spiritism and litigation that disintegrate the communities by teaching kindness and morals.As you see integrity is a code of moral ethics and to integrate it we have to get all of us have a better integrity. As a societies we will feel we are united by the moral code of ethics or righteousness if we to speak religion.

What Islam And Judaism have in Common?

Both two religions have many in common:1- Both believe in the same God of Abraham and Israel.2- Both are against any idols with God.3- Their believe in God has no mystery. plainly one God and prophets he send to us. No divine son. God can not be a man.4- Ten commandments are the basis of both religions.5- There are laws in both religions. But teachings of morality, justice and wisdom make people much less to need laws.6- spirituality is high in both religions.7- Fear of God and considering ourselves servants to God are more used in both religions.8- Secular, conservative and ultraconservative present in two religions. Like in Islam people have to work together to accommodate all of them.9- Both religions do not believe in oppressing or discriminating any group of people. Humanity plays a great role in both religions.10- They have same messiahs: Ben Joseph and Ben David.11- Both religions admire the teachings and the love message of Christianity.

Can We Take Israel Off The Table.

There is nothing in Islam or Judaism that make us and the Jews the children of Ishmael and Isaac enemies. Both religions are from the same God and both want us to be good human beings. It is well known fact and God's plan to have the Jews return to the holy land at the end of times. I do not know where is the obsession of eliminating Israel came from. The scary thing is that some people wants to see an Armageddon so Jesus would return. The mission that Jesus wants us to adapt is to spread peace and lift oppression among us. We have to remember that God would not appreciate that we make widespread wars to bring peace. Wars should be our last resort and done with a lot of politics to bring it short. The Arab tyrants also uses the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to distract their people from their rights for prosperous and democratic countries. Arab and Muslims need to have a peaceful resolution of this conflict and grantee the security of Israel. After Israel did the treaty with Sadat they kept it for more than 25 years. They came to the holy land for a noble cause and the persecution of the Jews by Hitler made them more willing to die for a Jewish state. For Muslims there are a lot of good causes to live for. Prosperity and being righteous happy Muslim societies among the nations are great aims to Muslims. Islam is pro-life and wars are rarely needed unless we are obligated to. Thus Muslims have to take Israel off the table not of the map, have a life.

How We Can Unite The World.

We can unite the world through:1- Thinking humanity, talking humanity and acting humanely.2- The common good is the matrix that should unite all of us.3- Moral values that are practiced by all of us.4- To eliminate corruption, immorality, injustices or oppression among all of us.5- To eliminate WMD.6- To have a sound economic system that work to all of us.7- To be sure we have justice system that is working for all of us.8- Persuasion and invoking the self interest of every one of us will lead to his participation.9- A preventive world system will be created through preventing conflicts, preventing diseases and so forth.

My Religion is Kindness.

I loved this simple phrase of the Dalai Lama "My religion is Kindness". I was always kind myself in all my life. Kindness is a beautiful negative moral. It means that you are a very benign and harmless person. You may take a lot of unpleasant abuse, oppression and pain from a lot of mean-spirited people and a lot of time you may let it go because you are dissent or they overpower you. In the contrary to "The Dalai Lama kindness religion" a lot of people their religion is "being mean spirited". Their primary religion could be Islam, Christianity or Judaism or any other religion. If there is a morality per capita equation the Jews will be the most moral. This is at least my experience in United States. Of all Jews I met there were only two mean spirited and prejudice I recall, one I met in New Haven,CT and one in Providence, RI. For Muslims I had hundreds of mean people I met when I was in my country. In the United States I would guess I had may be 20-30 Christians. Mean people wait to cause you pain at any potential window. They usually do it to the kind who is less likely to cause them pain. Like good people who enjoy doing the good, mean people also enjoy doing harm. In both the good and the evil there is enjoyment. The means are stupid they listen to their demons and cause the world to be more hostile and they carry a lot of sins when they meet their God. The reasons to be mean are a lot including being prejudice, jealous, inadequate or prime-evil. There is no law to persecute the means. In fact the person who is mean to you is your boss, co-wroker or a family member who overpowers you so you are less able to revenge. The good thing we have a day of judgment that we will face all the means. Until this comes we have to spread morality vertically. Being mean is another form of Injustice that fills the earth now. The means main skill is to pick on people to humiliate them. Some are well experienced and talented in that. It is most dangerous in schools when some students are picking on a vulnerable student causing him outburst of violence. With guns available to a lot of Americans it ends in a deadly shout out. Since it is difficult to spread morality horizontal we would need a new political and moral systems that insure the most dissent in the political positions regardless of their faith. We need the baseline of religions morality and kindness to prevail. It is amazing when you see some of the Arab tyrants come to the United States pretending to be very polite and they would torture any one stand in their way in their countries. My religion is Kindness like the Dalai Lama but I want it to have it as a positive moral. This means most people will follow the kindness of religions. So if you are mean you will be the one who is in fear and danger and not the opposite. Kindness should not be regarded as weakness. When this happens you will not find means and bullies in the schools, the political scene or anywhere. We will be able to strike the ruthless with the rod of our mouth and with the breath of our lips we will slay the wicked. Then the wolf will be a guest of the lamb and the leopard shall lie down with the kid.

Al Mahdi Al Muntazer Is Fired.

If Imam Al Mahdi to come today he will be fired at site. From my reading of Islamic prophecies he will be a politician and not a military guy. Through knowledge, wisdom and a lot of politics he will gather people for a peaceful coexistence. These are my reasons why he either quit or fired at site if he to come today:1- Arab moderates are giving in to the west and Arab tyrants and will not push for drastic changes.2- Extremists would inflame the Middle East and terror against the west would play well for the west agenda to maintain the status quo and the status of the Arab leaders.3- The Iranian hard-liners are not helping to get a lot of moderates in the west and Israel to advance our cause for peaceful coexistence and proclaim the Islamic values of peace and justice.4- Hamas and Fath are doing everything possible to undermine the cause of the Palestinian people. That is why I continue to be a strong disbeliever of the party system particularly in the Arab world.5- The west would support El Mahdi agenda but for only limited progress and suppress him as long as they can. People daily life in the Arab world is a hell of life already. I do not think a regular American will not feel for them.6- Still the hope is the west since a lot of people have close mentality to his, I hope they do not fire him as well.7- The time of tribulation is man-made and is due to people going in different directions with no considerations to the others and lack of belief of very comprehensive agenda.

Why Christians Should Love Islam?

Why Christians Should Love Islam? Islam is not the enemy of Christianity and Muslims are not Anti-Christians. These are the things that I would reason why Christians should love Islam:1- The praise of Jesus and his mother Mary is great in Islam.2- Muslims are happily waiting for Jesus second coming.3- Muslims follow Jesus teachings more than a lot of people in the world.4- Muslims are well passioned about the ten commandments and get angry about God ten commandments to Moses that Jesus stressed very well.5- Muslims like many conservative Christians are for family values and pro-life for babies and pro-choice at time of gathering of the man and his wife.6- Muslims like many Christians in the left for fighting aggressively the world wide poverty.7- Muslims look with respect to Christians religious leaders and believe in a wise dialogue between religions.8- Real Muslims are against any discrimination or oppression of any religious or ethnic groups.9- Muslims do not believe in conquering Christianity. Conversion to other religion is only through dialogue and Muslims love people to convert to their religion only when they are quite convinced. It does not help them for someone to convert in the morning to Islam quit at night. We actually encourage non-Muslims to read contradictions in Islam first before they convert

Jesus Is A Great Prophet.

Son of God is a figure of speech which many other Prophets were labeled as for example; in the King James Version of the Bible(Psalms 2:7) David is the begotten Son of God.Many others in the Bible are called God's son;Jacob God's firstborn son (Exodus 4:22)Solomon is God's son (2 Samuel 7:13-14)Ephraim is God's firstborn son (Jeremiah 31:9)Adam is the son of God (Luke 3:38)Other Prophets Preformed similar Miracles as Jesus ;Ezekiel raised many from the dead (Ezekiel 37:1-9)Joshua stopped the sun and moon for one whole day (Joshua 10:12-13)Elisha raised the dead, resurrected himself, healed a leper, fed a hundred people with twenty barley loaves and a few ears of corn, and healed a blind man: (2 Kings 4:35, 13:21, 5:14, 4:44, and 6:11.)Elijah raised the dead (1 Kings 17:22 and 14.)Other Prophets were filled with the Holy Ghost;Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost (Luke 1:67)Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost (Luke 1:41)Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost (Acts 4:8)Paul, filled with the Holy Ghost (Acts 13:9)Many other Prophets were called Lord for example;Abraham (Genesis 18:12)Esau (Genesis 32:4)Joseph (Genesis 44:20)David (1 Samuel 25:24)Jesus taught Salvation comes from Submitting your will to God and Faith as Muslims do .(Matthew 7:21-23) "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'"

Health Care Meltdown.

Two of the greatest people in America are Doctors Bob LeBow (God bless his soul) and Quentin young. They were the two Don Quixote who were fighting for health care for everyone in America. They have a great organization physicians for a National Health Program . The organization have many physicians who championed the cause of the less fortunate to improve their lives. People overseas look at America as the most advanced country in Medicine which is true. However not everyone enjoy that. In fact there is about 48 millions Americans with no health insurance. There is a great discrepancy between the advancement in health care and its delivery. The latter is quite poor. The one who can get a delivery system to health care that matches our advances in medicine is the one who would solve the biggest problem in America. When I was looking for answers to this disorganized health care, God answered my prayer and I found Taman Health Plan ( that takes care of all problems of health care. To my amazement I found out it takes care also of Medicare, Medicaid, Social security and the unsecured pensions of the American people. If I was a greedy person I could easily sold it to either of the two parties before the 2004 presidential election for 50 million dollars, it was a winner and they already spent 2 billion dollars on that election. I would also have the fame and Nobel prize in economics. I was hopping offering this plan to the American politicians will help me to have a plan that restructure the Arab and Muslim world and free my people. I called it the plan of freedom. However the wind is very strong against my ambitions. Muslims and Arabs have to depend greatly on their selves to liberate their countries. It would not be revolutions but very smart and intense politics that can turn most people against the tyrants and their regimes will crumble on itself. When we are united and strong we do not even need a revolution the tyrants would either give up power or they would feel that they have to give up power. The best we can get from America is having them not to support these regimes and use the CIA and political resources to support and empower them like they did in the past.

Health Care Meltdown By Robert LeBow.

Justice in Quran

Just is one of the 99 names of God in Islam. God is just and wants us to be just. This is well spelled in both the Bible and Quran. Please examine the verses in Quran that talks about justice.

1- God himself is standing firm on justice: 3:18 There is no God but He: That is the witness of Allah, His angels, and those endued with knowledge, standing firm on justice. There is No God but He, the Exalted in Power, the Wise. شَهِدَ اللّهُ أَنَّهُ لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ وَالْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَأُوْلُواْ الْعِلْمِ قَآئِمَاً بِالْقِسْطِ لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ

2- The failure of seeing complete justice in our world requires an afterlife for real and complete justice (Which for our good luck is real): 3:25 But how (will they fare) when we gather them together against a day about which there is no doubt, and each soul will be paid out just what it has earned, without (favor or) injusticeفَكَيْفَ إِذَا جَمَعْنَاهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ لاَّ رَيْبَ فِيهِ وَوُفِّيَتْ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَّا كَسَبَتْ وَهُمْ لاَ يُظْلَمُونَ

3- God is just he gives us signs of his existence: 3:108 These are the Signs of Allah. We rehearse them to thee in Truth: And Allah means no injustice to any of His creatures. تِلْكَ آيَاتُ اللّهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَمَا اللّهُ يُرِيدُ ظُلْمًا لِّلْعَالَمِينَ (in another verse: We would not torture (people) until we send a messanger, for people who would not follow God for intimidation follow him for his love, what is right and seeking heaven.). Both the Bible and Quran have the words of God both of them asserted there is heaven and hell.

4- Unlike most of non-Muslims belief justice in marriage requires the norm to be one wife. In the verse marrying more than one woman was mainly to support the orphans (The right hands possess are like slaves that Islam managed to put mechanisms to free them): 4:3 If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice.وَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلاَّ تُقْسِطُواْ فِي الْيَتَامَى فَانكِحُواْ مَا طَابَ لَكُم مِّنَ النِّسَاء مَثْنَى وَثُلاَثَ وَرُبَاعَ فَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ أَلاَّ تَعْدِلُواْ فَوَاحِدَةً أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ ذَلِكَ أَدْنَى أَلاَّ تَعُولُواْ

5- Even being generous has to have a balance. You need to be just to yourself when you give out: 4:5 To those weak of understanding Make not over your property, which Allah hath made a means of support for you, but feed and clothe them therewith, and speak to them words of kindness and justice.وَلاَ تُؤْتُواْ السُّفَهَاء أَمْوَالَكُمُ الَّتِي جَعَلَ اللّهُ لَكُمْ قِيَاماً وَارْزُقُوهُمْ فِيهَا وَاكْسُوهُمْ وَقُولُواْ لَهُمْ قَوْلاً مَّعْرُوفًا

6- To be honest and to judge with justice are God commands: 4:58 Allah doth command you to render back your Trusts to those to whom they are due; And when ye judge between man and man, that ye judge with justice: Verily how excellent is the teaching which He giveth you! For Allah is He Who heareth and seeth all things. إِنَّ اللّهَ يَأْمُرُكُمْ أَن تُؤدُّواْ الأَمَانَاتِ إِلَى أَهْلِهَا وَإِذَا حَكَمْتُم بَيْنَ النَّاسِ أَن تَحْكُمُواْ بِالْعَدْلِ إِنَّ اللّهَ نِعِمَّا يَعِظُكُم بِهِ إِنَّ اللّهَ كَانَ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا

7- God is just if we are righteous we will enter heaven (but we have to be believers, it is unjust to deny God and he would recognize you): 4:124 If any do deeds of righteousness,- be they male or female - and have faith, they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them. وَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِنَ الصَّالِحَاتَ مِن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَى وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ يَدْخُلُونَ الْجَنَّةَ وَلاَ يُظْلَمُونَ نَقِيرًا

8- In fact the Quran is true and just and no change of its words for over 1400 years: 6:115 The word of thy Lord doth find its fulfillment in truth and in justice: None can change His words: for He is the one who heareth and knoweth all.وَتَمَّتْ كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ صِدْقًا وَعَدْلاً لاَّ مُبَدِّلِ لِكَلِمَاتِهِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُVerses are collected from Translation of Quran to Yusuf Ali.

Why Jesus Second Coming?

God does what he would like to do, the world is his creation including me and you. Many times why could not understand his wisdom or takes us years to know it. I personally have things happened to me to discover its wisdom after over 20 years while at the time it happened it just looked strange. We may not know fully why God choose Jesus to come again to earth. But we can speculate:1- He was not victorious in his first mission despite all miracles he has showed to people and his great message that illuminates people's hearts and minds.2- His message is love which is likely the last step of human enlightenment. After justice and peace prevail love to God will fill our hearts and unite us with the universe and one another. If we are injust or violent to one another the word love will be absurd, foolish or nonexistent.3- He will unite the three major religions. Muhammad (PBUH) completed the message of God and Jesus will judge according to the message of God.4- Jesus know it all, in his first coming he knew by heart the old testament and he was quoted for a lot of the 4 gospels. He will know also Islam and in his time the knowledge of all God's revelations will fill the earth.5- The win of Jesus by love and worshiping God will be the best win against evil. Prophets before him lost many times, or won through struggles, wars and God's disasters against the evil. As you see his second coming will be too good to be true. But people who red prophecies of the three religions realized that they come true. The one we see in front of our eyes today is the return of the Jews to the promised land as prophesied in the three religions to happened at the end of time. We should cherish that not to ruin it. The Palestinians will have a country and peace with the Israeli. Not at any time in history Muslims, Christians and Jews are ought to follow his teachings and make the world full of peace and justice like today. Let us make the world ready for Jesus second coming and for the kingdom of God in earth.

The Case For God In The Quran.

As a creator he comes first before every thing else:16:17 Is then He Who creates like one that creates not? Will ye not receive admonition?أَفَمَن يَخْلُقُ كَمَن لاَّ يَخْلُقُ أَفَلا تَذَكَّرُونَAll idols are in fact created by God or from a material he created:16:20 Those whom they invoke besides Allah create nothing and are themselves created.وَالَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ اللّهِ لاَ يَخْلُقُونَ شَيْئًا وَهُمْ يُخْلَقُونَYou can not count the favors of God: count the hormones, enzymes... in your body to see how long the list of favors that include the outside and inside of ourselves:16:18 If ye would count up the favors of Allah, never would ye be able to number them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.وَإِن تَعُدُّواْ نِعْمَةَ اللّهِ لاَ تُحْصُوهَا إِنَّ اللّهَ لَغَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌHe knows what we conceal and reveal. Even the smartest of us can guess but do not know what you conceal: 16:19 And Allah doth know what ye conceal, and what ye reveal.وَاللّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تُسِرُّونَ وَمَا تُعْلِنُونَGod knows the unseen like the future. That is why he is the one to give us the right visions and prophecies:13:9 He knoweth the unseen and that which is open: He is the Great, the Most High.عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ الْكَبِيرُ الْمُتَعَالِHe is the one who guides us through prophets and the holy books. The guidance is for our own sake and he does not send his wrath before he sends a warning:17:15 Who receiveth guidance, receiveth it for his own benefit: who goeth astray doth so to his own loss: No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another: nor would We visit with Our Wrath until We had sent an apostle (to give warning).مَّنِ اهْتَدَى فَإِنَّمَا يَهْتَدي لِنَفْسِهِ وَمَن ضَلَّ فَإِنَّمَا يَضِلُّ عَلَيْهَا وَلاَ تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَى وَمَا كُنَّا مُعَذِّبِينَ حَتَّى نَبْعَثَ رَسُولاًThe presence of disbelievers is not a strong case against God: Nothing new under the sun since Noah apostles were mocked and the arguments were about the same. Apostles have their own agenda of domination, get people righteous, become famous, crazy, demonized.... The strange thing many of those who did not beleive them wosrhiped idols with no proof or believed in the unseen in one way or another. This is a good argument of the subtle effect of Satan on our thinking in pushing us away from the guidance of God.13:32 Mocked were (many) apostles before thee: but I granted respite to the unbelievers, and finally I punished them: Then how (terrible) was my requital! وَلَقَدِ اسْتُهْزِىءَ بِرُسُلٍ مِّن قَبْلِكَ فَأَمْلَيْتُ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ثُمَّ أَخَذْتُهُمْ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عِقَابِGod give us the spirituality. the verse "Is n't by God rememberance hearts feel satisfaction". I do not know how the evolution proponents can explain this human experience. We can get relaxed with music, youga, breathing exercises... But prayers have certain satisfaction above everything else. It is not our problem if some people choose to harden their hearts. Most people who pray feels their heart softened and enjoy feeling of spirituality and you can see the enlightened faces of the faithfuls from various religions.3:28 "Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.

Too Much coincidences Equal No Coincidence.

This is my simple law or equation. At times when my faith goes down say from 95% to 70% I would review in my head all the big coincidences of my faith. When I go through them I strengthen my faith: too much coincidences= no coincidence. With this equation you can attain faith as confirmed belief (too much coincidences) or faith by default (equal no coincidence or absence of strong evidence of disbelief). I will list down these coincidences:1- Creation. 2- Intelligence behind creation. 3- A creator claiming his creation. 4- Purpose of creation. 5- Evil and good. 6- Enjoyment in both doing evil and good even in same person. 7- Conscience that is built by religion. 8- Inner desire to seek God. 9- Spiritual satisfaction by worshiping God. 10- Reaching out to God in difficult times. 11- Evil winning over good in earth. 12- Incomplete justice in our world and the reasonable belief in day of judgment. 13- Same messages of prophets and the way God inspired them (angels, visions and rarely too close like with prophet Moses). 14- Miracles of Quran (see topics in my blog) and Bible. 15- Why in hell prophets will suffer all they went through from their enemies and their followers unless they are very sure (faith) they are carrying to us the truth. 16- We already believe in the unseen like electricity. 17- supernatural: visions, prophecies, witch crafts, connections with spirits and even Jinn or demons. 18- Even our social life has laws, for laugh the common law is "to say something unpredictable and in the same time funny but not silly", for laws of leaderships discovered by john Maxwell (21 laws) you break one of them and people will not follow you, and so on' law of attraction (new book). 19- Human false pride that can deny the truth or rationalize the evil as well described in the Bible and the Quran.So the spectrum of belief can be as sophisticated as examining the strict laws of cosmos and believe there is intelligence behind them or as simple as few visions in your life that came true or inner feeling that there is God. Thus God put in our heart and mind the ways to find him, everyone according to his sophistication. If you do not believe me review again the coincidences above. If you find them too much of coincidences it is not a coincidence (faith). If you still think they all are coincidences and there is no truth behind religion you are entitled to your disbelief. In Quran there is the freedom of faith. .

God's Intolerance to Disbeleivers.

Intolerance is the word we use if we talk humans to humans. It is quite different in case of God. If you are intolerant to me both me and you can be the quantity A and B. As both of us humans intolerance is much less likely if we are close enough say in morality, bank account, education and so forth. When you compare one of us A or B to the creator of the universe who created billions like us A and B we have to understand his intolercane will be mathmatically very great. His intolerance to the one who denies him, worships idols or fills the earth with mischiefs is great. So God in Quran is intolerant to people that refused his compassion and heaven. Many of them at the time of the prophet fought his prophet and persuecuted Muslims. But guss what anytime they would come back to God he would forgive their sins and promise them to heaven. It is like someone is very Great in everything his mercy, his generousity and happened to be your creator and you do everything to displease him. You are the one who is asking for his intolerance and hate. God does not play politics he would say what he thinks of these people. Muhammad (PBUH)played a lot of politics with the unbelievers to try to persuade them to be Muslims and he succeded with many. God tells him in Quran when he calls people to Islam to use wisdom and the best of advice. The disbelievrs turned God's call down.أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ بَدَّلُواْ نِعْمَةَ اللّهِ كُفْرًا وَأَحَلُّواْ قَوْمَهُمْ دَارَ الْبَوَار14:28 Hast thou not turned thy vision to those who have changed the favour of Allah. Into blasphemy and caused their people to descend to the House of Perdition?- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------مَن كَفَرَ بِاللّهِ مِن بَعْدِ إيمَانِهِ إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالإِيمَانِ وَلَـكِن مَّن شَرَحَ بِالْكُفْرِ صَدْرًا فَعَلَيْهِمْ غَضَبٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيم16:106 Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters Unbelief,- except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith - but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------مَن كَفَرَ فَعَلَيْهِ كُفْرُهُ وَمَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلِأَنفُسِهِمْ يَمْهَدُونَ 30:44 Those who reject Faith will suffer from that rejection: and those who work righteousness will spread their couch (of repose) for themselves (in heaven): --------------------------------------------------------------------------------وَمَن كَفَرَ فَلَا يَحْزُنكَ كُفْرُهُ إِلَيْنَا مَرْجِعُهُمْ فَنُنَبِّئُهُم بِمَا عَمِلُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ بِذَاتِ الصُّدُورِ 31:23 But if any reject Faith, let not his rejection grieve thee: to Us is their return, and We shall tell them the truth of their deeds: for Allah knows well all that is in (men's) hearts. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------هُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَكُمْ خَلَائِفَ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَمَن كَفَرَ فَعَلَيْهِ كُفْرُهُ وَلَا يَزِيدُ الْكَافِرِينَ كُفْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ إِلَّا مَقْتًا وَلَا يَزِيدُ الْكَافِرِينَ كُفْرُهُمْ إِلَّا خَسَارًا 35:39 He it is That has made you inheritors in the earth: if, then, any do reject ((Allah)), their rejection (works) against themselves: their rejection but adds to the odium for the Unbelievers in the sight of their Lord: their rejection but adds to (their own) undoing.

The White Revolution Of Egypt 1952.

One of the most admired revolutions in the world was that of Nasser and the Free officers of 1952. They play it right they had secret plans all along and in one day they put units of armies in the right places to control the government and the King of Egypt. They let him out of the country peacefully and took over the country. I do not recall any one died during this revolution. The Egyptians were happy and the leaders of the revolution had good plans to their country. However, they screwed it up second to greed of power and oppression to their people. Nasser has Arabic ambitions and with personal ambitions he lost Egypt in the process. Sadat came after him and he was right not on separating Egypt from the Arab world but he knew the reality on the ground. Arab leaders were selling the anti-Israel rhetoric to divert the attention away from their internal affairs while Egyptians were paying their blood and money for endless wars. He smartly shocked Israel by his visit to them and he got a good deal from them. If the Arabs at that time to have negotiated with Israel we would save the agony and money spent all these years on defense. Arab leaders attacked Sadat and the reality is they would not care about Palestinians or even their people. Sadat did not also win his people since he enjoyed being a dictator and left us with a tyrant. We need now new chapter in the Arab and Muslim world to create true democratic, peaceful and prosperous countries. Our faith as Muslims should give us the inspiration of how to be better people. What the west needs from us is stability, oil and safety of Israel which we will give it to them. Guess also what, we are willing to have white revolutions it the tyrants and their oppressor regimes quit willingly. There is no single man can change the world regardless of how much paranoia he has. He may give people ideas, inspiration and hope. They may feel he is guided from God which make their hopes not far form achievement. However, it is the collective will of the people and belief in their faith and destiny that will change the world. The religious Muslim leaders as well the Christian leaders living among them has to take their responsibility and lead the people to their freedom and prosperity.The west if does not help, at least I am hoping, does not obstruct our march to freedom.

Why Would The Quran Mention All OF These Prophets?

I can understand why atheists do not believe in Quran. They think all the ideas of religions are hoax. In other places in my blog I debated them. The thing I could not understand why still many Christians and Jews do not believe in the Quran. There is no compulsion in religion. However why Muhammad (PBUH) would mention all these prophets of the old and new testaments if Quran was not from God. Why he would mention himself only 4 times. Who in human history brought a book like the Quran and mentioned all of these prophets like did the Bible. If I would say today I am a prophet people will put me under the microscope, they will investigate my family and people who knew me to see if I am a liar or crazy. They will likely dig in my life to find things against me. People will look to me with great suspicion unless I can dramatically convince them. The responsibility lies in people in the top of the religions to do their homework since they are the one who will answer to God in the day of judgement. Quran 3:70 O followers of earlier revelation! Why do you deny the truth of God's messages to which you yourselves bear witness?Table: includes: Number, Name of the messenger and Number of occurrence in the Quran:1 Moses 1362 Abraham 693 Noah 434 Lot 275 Joseph 276 Adam 257 Jesus 258 Aaron 209 Isaac 1710 Solomon 1711 Jacob 1612 David 1613 Ismail 1214 Shuaib 1115 Saaleh 916 Hood 717 Zachariah 718 John 519 Muhammad 420 Job 421 Jonah 422 Elias 323 Idris 224 Zalkifl 225 Elisha 226 Luqmaan 227 Ezra 1Table is copied from

Muslims Are Coming.

We Muslims frankly want to convert the world to Islam because of the good Islam has to humanity. Any other faith has the right to do the same. It is like the free market it is competing of ideas. We have the Internet and the mass media and millions of blogs. All of these help the debate and sharpen ideas. It creates consensus that when all facts are available and through unbiased discussions people will meet at a point or at least will get close enough to the truth. As Muslims we would like to convert the Muslims first to Islam that the west unfairly denied us this right by supporting the rotten and immoral Arab regimes. Who are in fact if we talk Christianity are the most Antichrist regimes in the world. We do not want the world to convert to extreme or militant Islam that the west created by leaving an empty vacuum to them. We want moderate Islam we want to spread the teachings and gospel of Jesus as we Muslims got it right. Muslims are coming not by invading or forcing others to convert to Islam. Islam believes in Muslims who come to Islam willingly with convinced minds and searching hearts. Muslims will not invade America but Americans will explore Islam. It is not a clash of civilizations but it is a debate of civilizations.Why Muslims are coming:1- Islam is real.2- Islam believes in reasoning. Even after you convert to Islam very willingly you use reason for almost every thing.3- Islam is for every one interest: the universal and humane values.4- Islam spreads morality.5- Islam protects you personally with diminish of crimes, social problems.6- Islam is an open door to every one.7- Islam is tolerant to every one.8- Islam encourages honesty which is the best medium of exchange to all of us.9- Islam acknowledges human weakness and pulls the hand of sinner.10- Islam is a peaceful religion. Militant Muslims is a rare phenomena second to the ruthless oppression.11- Islam has great momentum it moves people towards great causes.12- Islam is dynamic: no one is certain of going to heaven or desperate that he will go to hell. Muslim is realistically optimistic. No one faith is 100% all the times we all struggle to be more believers. We are there when we pray and do the good deeds otherwise our hearts get rusty.13- Islam has no one between you and God. You are special to him and more so as you get closer to him.14- Islam looks at hearts and God in Islam is the God of hearts.15- Islam is against wars but evil would not leave the good in peace as happened with the early Christians and Jews. Wars abused by all people from different religions and backgrounds. Dialogue and not wars is the answer.16- Islam fights poverty which brings a lot of evil with it.Muslims are coming by debating and not by invading. They are not coming form outside but from within the west. They will not come falling from trees but by growing from the land. They are not coming for any purpose except for God and the Islamic values. They are bringing Islam to the west since the west oppressed Islam in its countries and doing a little to help out. Islam comes to the west because the leaders of the west are civilized and knows the importance of liberty.

God Plan Of Redumption And The Jews.

God plan for redemption is understood through his revelation:1- God has planned to have the people one nation and one religion at the end of time.2- According to the old testament and the gospels 1000 year of peace will prevail and the kingdom of God will be established. In Islam it is not mentioned definitely for how long it will last from my readings.3- The redemption and salvation depends on us. We will win our redemption if we go back to God and become righteous.4- The Jews are important part of the plan of God since they will lead the people to righteousness.5- God will send the first messiah Imam Al Mahdi if they are to follow his commandments.6- The return of the Jews to the promised land was prophesied in the Torah, Gospels and Quran. The thing I liked about Sadat he was pushing for comparative religious dialogue after he made peace with Israel.7- Both Arabs and Israeli fought wars that would have been unnecessary if we had the spirit of understanding. God did not set us up for fight it is Satan who did that. God wants for us peaceful coexistence and Satan wants for us religious wars.8- When Jesus return to the earth he will be the king of this kingdom and he will be the judge. The world will be one nation and one religion Islam.9- For few years before Christ, God knows, how many will be tribulation on the earth. They will be man made. It is not clear if this already started but it looks like it. If we all end the transgression and be good humans this period may not be necessarily bad. It depends on us.

How To Be Right With The Christians Right.

The thing you have first to appreciate is that the Christian rights are good guys. They are in most part like moderate conservative Muslims. If they would have accepted Jesus as a prophet and not the son of God they would be almost Muslims. However, they were taught since early age that Jesus is the son of God as well Islam an evil religion.Muslims have to be wise and mature. They should correct politely to them all of these misunderstandings. I prefer the ones to do that particularly are the priests who converted to Islam.Among these misconceptions:1- Islam is a demonic religion.2- Allah is not the same God of Abraham and all the prophets.3- Allah is the God of the moon.4- Islam is a cult.5- Muslims discriminate against non-Muslims.6- Women are inferior in Islam to men.7- Islam spread by sword.8- Islam is a violent religion.9- The Antichrist will arise from Muslims.10- Muslims worship Muhammad.11- Islam plays tactics to appeal to people with peace and compassion then devour them.12- Muslims hate Jews and Christians.13- Muslims want to annihilate Israel.14- Muslims converted out of Islam are to be killed.Muslims web sites are very active now to put out the real picture of Islam. Their media and communications allowed them to reach large number of people and there is a sweeping conversion to Islam. In opposition to this surge of Islam some Christians web sites declared its campaign against Islam.This is the right way to argue with Christian rights:1- We love their moral call and spreading the teachings of Christ.2- Satan would love to see us in wars against each other.3- The message of Muhammad (PBUH) is almost the same as Jesus (PBUH).4- Islam is spread by reasoning not wars.5- Most moderate Muslims are against the violence of the Jihadis. That is why they think with a political dialogue will be balancing or shifting the power from tyrants supported by America and Jihadis to Moderates.6- Allow religious dialogue and have priests converted to Islam to represent us.7- Their misunderstanding of prophecies that there will be struggle near return of Christ between the good Christians and evil Muslims is wrong. Both are good guys with good intentions.8- Muslims should be cool headed since God promised us that Islam will spread everywhere and Jesus will be our leader. The meek will finally inherit the earth. Even when Christians or Jews convert to Islam they have in the beginning that uneasiness that they conceded to our religion. The reality is most Muslims came to Islam over ages from non-Muslims background.9- We Muslims should make it easy to them when they criticize Islam. After we absorb their critics we tell them what is Islam is. This was one of most successful tactics of spreading Islam is to let them spell it out and get it out of their chests and then politely and logically put out our defense.

The March To The Middle.

When I proposed The Moral Utopia Project (somewhere in my blog, I lost it) I thought I will be making everyone happy:1- God for let me have his ten commandments respected again and to have no usury.2- The capitalists to make them even make more money and lift everyone.3- The poor and middle class to be more prosperous.4- The politicians to make peace between them and solve a lot of problems to them.5- The west and east to have peaceful coexistence.6- To the oppressed to have their freedom.7- Finding a new political system that is away from the divisive party system and the influence of special interest groups would make governing fair and easy.8- To solve threatening world problems in systematic pattern: sex trafficking, potential wars, drug trafficking, global worming,....9- To get people to march to the middle so we meet in the middle and find a common plan to our existence and coexistence.However the plan did not have ears to for many reasons:1- Satan will inspire a lot of people against my plan.2- The Christians right, who are commonly right, are wrong on this one, anyone will have such a plan would be considered by them for wrong interpretation of prophecies the Antichrist.3- Immoral greedy capitalism would not take any chances with any plan.4- The rich and corrupt in the world (many of them are Muslims) would not give in to such a plan.5- Jealous is my worst enemies this is may be the reason I am enjoying being in the shadow.I am not a rigid thinker. As a home-based politician I consider flexibility and consensus the way to do politics. If you are keen to do good policies you have to do good politics (politics is the rob that will fly your Kaye or policies). That is why we need dialogue between the west and Arab/Muslims to look at all the problems we have and try to solve them.If the west refuses the dialogue we as Muslims: the public, the scholars, the elites and the leaders or dictators need to sit together in a large conference and solve our problems.If we could not have the west to join us in the March to the Middle at least we Arabs and Muslims do our own March.

How Muslims Can Win The World Struggle (Overwhelm Them)

The world struggle is between the fair and just and the so/so. The latter is those who are unjust and those who are just but want to go slow/slow. It is like the people who are rich and have health insurance some of them do not care about the other 48 millions who are not insured. They do not care if they to see Taman Health Plan that covers all Americans vanish or come true. For the majority who are Muslims, Christians and Jews who are fair and just let us act now and do not go slow. It is like Taman Health Plan mortality and morbidity in America can be cut down by this plan what we are waiting for. Let us have a just world for all:1- Let us in all Muslim web sites write and repeat this two words "Justice and Equality For All".2- Let these two words reciprocate as well in Christians and Jewish websites. Let them inspire us all.3- Let us have a great conference about these two words "Justice and Equality For All".4- Let us tell the Arab and Muslims streets their rights for these two words "Justice and Equality`For All".5- Let us tell Jihadis we have better plans than what they call for.6- Let us get America out of Iraq. Put it politely they have language barrier with the Arabs all along the road.7- Let us have the Americans pretend nothing there and start from scratch with a new plan for Justice and Equality for all.8- Let us entertain ourselves have a leader hiding in a website that has no face and let us follow his call.9- Let us be our own leaders. Let us be the motivators and the followers. Let us be the generals and the soldiers.10- Let us do it with no wars. Let us do it with overwhelming call for Justice and peace for all.11- Let us have Hollywood do the scenario, the cast and the call.Sounds like a poem to me, I do know what you think.

Islam is Totally Against Persecution.

If a Muslim persecuted a christian or any non-Muslim he is either an idiot, bully or likely a combination of both. These are the reasons behind my points:1- The main reason that people followed Islam or converted to Islam after being the truth is its real humanistic nature. In Quran God says that " Do not cut short people's rights". He did not say Muslims, he said people. So all people and all their rights have to be protected in Islam. It protected their souls, honour, money and properties.2- Islam came to liberate people from persecution and oppression and not the opposite.3- There is no known case that Muhammad (PBUH) persecuted anyone. Wars in Islam was against persecution and oppression. The people oppressed and killed Muslims they rightly fought them back. But for peaceful people Muhammad named the minority of people in a Muslim country " The people in our protection". In Islam even money was given to non-Muslims and particularly poor non-Muslims.4- Islam is a very civilized religion and survived all these centuries and took over a lot of religions because of being the truth and because of its high values. Muslims themselves should be sure that no mean or idiot Muslims to harm Islam by persecuting non-Muslims.5- A lot of Muslims consider non-Muslims as potential Muslims that we have to work to have people love Islam so they convert willingly to Islam. Even if they did not convert we did the right thing to our religion and to humanity.

How Can We Convert Muslims To Islam?

It sounds funny, but believe me I am serious. If we are eager as Muslims to spread Islam we have first to convert ourselves to Islam. Someone would tell me who in hell are you to say that. I would say I am chosen to say that and if I am chosen to say that, it means you are guys very bad (just kidding). Sorry can not resist not to crack a joke even when I am serious, that is me. Let me first tell you what diseases we have in Muslim world:1- Selfishness: everyone is running in his own direction caring only about himself or his close family member. This worked well for the tyrants since we are not willing to get together to oppose them.2- Envy: we are rather see each other fall rather than we see all of us climb high together. This is a human disease since God created man but is particularly common now. Even you can find it in religious leaders that why we are not one heart.3- Isolated or inward spirituality: this what usually Arab governments want us to have a spirituality isolated from real life. They do not care about morals or religious awakening they are interested to protect their kingdoms. A lot of Muslims have good spirituality and spent a lot of time in worshipping God, but they do not take it a step further to get Islam applied in out daily relations and have our leaders abide by the justice of Islam and fear corruption.4- Extremism: I can understand the anger and resentment of Muslims. The thing I do not understand is how extreme measures would solve our problems.5- Street Morals: the morals of Islam is replaced in daily life of Muslims in many places by street morals. Sayings of these street morals: look for your interest, the kind people spit on him, divide and you prevail, the world is like a sea a big fish eat the little ones, the thing you win with play with and so forth.6- Hopelessness: In my country when I used to express my frustrations about what state we are in people would say the common proverb "are you the one who will change the world".7- Blaming America and Israel: there were wrong policies from America and we took Israel an enemy and they did the same in return.8-Competition: people still in the Arab and Muslim worlds do not realize that there is a difference between ambition, competition and envy. The first two are healthy the last one is detrimental not only for others but for ourselves. You find in a lot of work places people make one another life miserable though their real interest is to have each of them happy and successful. Our GDP (gross domestic product an economic measure is the collective input of all of our productions) similarly our real GDP is happiness is a collective one. If each of us is happy the world will be full of happiness. When people watch a play many times they laugh more for sharing their laughs than the actual jokes of the play.9- Shia and Sunni against one another: In Islam there is only one sect at time of the prophet: Muslims and it should remain the same. The family of Muhammad (PBUH) are great but he would never accepted that we divide in two sects because of them.10- Anti-Christians or Anti-Jews: it has no place in Islam. Satan want us to be all enemies.Thus to Convert Muslims back to Islam:1- We become less selfish and look after the others and our collective welfare.2- Overcome envy that make us too selfish to see others succeed and destroy our big dreams.3- To have outward spirituality means that you decide to live with God not only in your isolated self but as he want you to do it in our daily and political lives.4-Moderation: Islam is the religion of moderation. As the west opens the dialogue to us we would be able to change the world for better.5- Islamic morals: the Islam we inherited from the prophet and his first companions gave us the straight path and the real morals that were displaced by street morals.6- Hopefulness: yes we can change the world. There is no single person that can change the world the most he can do is to call our minds and hearts to the lost message of God for the real understanding of his message, justice and peace. He is not necessarily better than us but he cared enough to make the call.7- Reconciling with America and Israel: not from a stand of the weak or oppressed but from the stand of the wise and free.8- Coalition: we should not compete to destroy ourselves but we should work together to improve the cause of Islam, humanity, justice and peace.9- We should be one sect again Muslims. How we can unite the world if we are dividing ourselves.10- Christians and Jews are not the enemies but the enemy is within. We can be a great nation again we can win America and secure Israel. If there is Caliphate it is not which city it will be in but what it would do for humanity.
