Quran and some words of wisdom


Quran declares "Communism" as a flawed concept from 7th century
Quran (Chapter:Zuhruf/Verse:32) "Is it they who would portion out the Mercy of thy Lord? It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in the life of this world: and We raise some of them above others in ranks, so that some may command work from others. But the Mercy of thy Lord is better than the (wealth) which they amass."
"... so that some may command work from others ..."! Is not this simple but powerfull idea the fact behind civilization? Is not this the fact behind Communism's failure?

The anatomy of a disbeliever
I have read a lot about the theory of evolution. What I found in the evolutionary literature is nothing but speculations. Their theory assumes enormous numbers of transitional forms, but they found none. Their theory can not explain the formation of even a simple bacteria cell, but they throw away hypothesis like "RNA World". If you ask for its evidence, they had none. They look at the protein structures of living organisms and what they see is that there is no "ancestor-descendant" relation in molecular level, but they throw away "Molecular Clock" hypothesis. They are chalenged by concepts like "irreducible complexity" and they charge their opponents with making use of "argument from lack of imagination". Speculations and imagination! What do they tell us about the truth? Almost everything is logically possible. Think about vampires. Is there a logical obstacle for the existence of vampires? No, but none of us believe in their existence, because there is no evidence on behalf of the existence of vampires. In fact, reality is only a small subset of logical possibilities. So, what are they (disbelievers) actually doing? Let Quran speak about them!
Quran (Chapter:Yunus/Verse:66) "Behold! verily to Allah belong all creatures, in the heavens and on earth. What do they follow who worship as His "partners" other than Allah? They follow nothing but conjecture, and they do nothing but lie."
Quran (Chapter:Necm/Verse:28) "But they have no knowledge therein. They follow nothing but conjecture; and conjecture avails nothing against Truth."
Quran (Chapter:Al-i ─░mran/Verse:151) "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the Fire: And evil is the home of the wrong-doers!"

The problem of Knowledge
Quran (Chapter:Necm/Verses:1-11) "By the Star when it goes down,- Your Companion is neither astray nor being misled. Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire. It is no less than Inspiration sent down to him: He was taught by one Mighty in Power, Endued with Wisdom: for he appeared (in stately form); While he was in the highest part of the horizon: Then he approached and came closer, And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer; So did (Allah) convey the inspiration to His Servant- (conveyed) what He (meant) to convey. The (Prophet's) (mind and) heart in no way falsified that which he saw."
This last verse refers to a problem known as "the problem of knowledge" in philosphy. The great Descartes had struggled with this problem. He questioned the reality of the existence of himself and the outside world and concluded with his famaous quote: "I think, so I exist". He solved the problem of the reality of his existence thru reasoning on "doubt" but never solved the problem of the reaility of the existence of outside world. He just concluded that "God does not deceive us". IF YOU LIVE IN A UNIVERSE CONTAINING OTHER BEINGS, YOU ALWAYS HAVE THIS PROBLEM.
And the last verse above refers to the same problem.
Hint: That's why God asks for FAITH. Because there are no ways of knowing some things other than TRUSTING TO GOD!
Word(s) of God
Quran (Chapter:Nisa/Verse:171) O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not "Three (Trinity)" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is One God. Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.

Jesus : no more than a WORD of GOD!
Have you ever thought of WORDS? In fact, not only Jesus but also you are a WORD of God! A word is a combination of alphabet symbols which has a meaning. So you and everything is in fact a word. When I see you, your image is tranferred to my eyes. And Your Image is a "word" made up of symbols of color and shapes. You yourself are a word made up of symbols of flesh and bone.
So, like Jesus, you are a WORD of God. Being a "WORD of GOD" is not something special to Jesus. Even an elephant is a word of God. Also Look at the following verse.
Quran (Chapter:Lukman/Verse:27) And if all the trees on earth were pens and the ocean (were ink), with seven oceans behind it to add to its (supply), yet would not the Words of Allah be exhausted (in the writing): for Allah is Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom.
(blogger comment: other people who interpeted that Jesus the word of God is he was inspired to say God word, as well he had the power of the word what every thing he says God gave his word the power of of obediance like curing the blind and raising the dead, Jesus confessed it was not his own power but God)

Recognition as a way of knowing
Quran (Chapter:Maide/Verse:83) And when they listen to the revelation received by the Messenger, thou wilt see their eyes overflowing with tears, for they recognize the truth: they pray: "Our Lord! we believe; write us down among the witnesses.

Recognizing the truth! What a thrilling definition.
As of today, some people deny the existence of God or simply ignore Him just because they think that there is no way of knowing the truth.
But is it really so? I just want to ask them a simple question: "How do you know your mother?" By means of some kind of proof? Or by recognition?
Truth can never be proven. Because there is an infinite number of possibilities that can be assocciated with it. But it can be recognized. Just like you know your mother's face.

Best of the Creators
Quran (Chapter:Muminun/Verse:14) Then We made the seed a clot, then We made the clot a lump of flesh, then We made (in) the lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, then We caused it to grow into another creation, so blessed be Allah, the best of the creators.
"Best of the creators". Are there other creators beside Allah? In fact, there are: The Human Beings! Just look at the products of our civilization to see our creativity.
Allah cretaed a creature that can create! This is the ultimate point in creation. So, Allah is the "best of the creators".
Today Human beings are trying to do the same thing. We are trying to create "artificial intelligence" and to understand what the consciousness is. Are we following the footsteps of our Creator?

Incarnation Nonsense
Christians believe that Jesus is the incarnated form of God. They can not evaluate the consequences of this claim. Incarnation makes belief to God impossible.
Let's assume that God is capable of incarnation and incarnates himself in the form of a human from time to time. Then how can you be sure that the man sitting next to you in the bus is not God but a mere human. Can you stop thinking about this? Even worse, can you stop yourself worshipping human idols like celebrities or even your boss? How can you be sure that president of USA is not God incarnated?
Christians will reply to this dilemma with "It is finished!". What is finished? Did God declare that He will incarnate himself no more? Remember 3 of 4 gospels does not include this verse. Only the last gospel which was written 150 years after Jesus claims that these were the last words of Jesus. Apparently because of the fact that the writer had not liked the last words of Jesus in other canonical gospels.
For a moment, let's assume that the last gospel is true. But then what is the guilt of Pharaoh's people. They did the same thing just like Christians: They worshipped a man. Look at the following verses of Quran.
Quran (Chapter:Zuhruf/Verses:51-54) And Pharaoh proclaimed among his people, saying: "O my people! Does not the dominion of Egypt belong to me, (witness) these streams flowing underneath my (palace)? What! see ye not then? "Am I not better than this (Moses), who is a contemptible wretch and can scarcely express himself clearly?" "Then why are not gold bracelets bestowed on him, or (why) come (not) with him angels accompanying him in procession?" Thus did he make fools of his people, and they obeyed him: truly were they a people rebellious (against Allah).
( Blogger comment: the Quran says: [43:81] Proclaim: "If the Most Gracious did have a son, I would still be the foremost worshiper." Thus for Muslims the main issue is if the Quran from God which we have a lot of evidences is we are not worshiping because this will be declared in the Quran and we have the obligation to worship him, and Muhammad is the foremost of worshiper since he is basically in the front of the prophets since he was given the strongest and most preserved message and the message that Jesus will govern with in his second coming)

God is capable of evaluating the consequences of his decisions.
The Mathematics of Eternal Punishment
Some people say that none of the sins deserve an eternal punishment and claim that such a punishment is unjust. They seem right in their reasoning. What makes a person candidate for eternal damnation?
Let's make a calculation: Once you were nothing. This means you were mathematically a zero. Then God brought you into existence. So, you became a one. Divide one by zero. The result is equeal to infinity.
This simple calculation shows that God has an infinite right on you. As a result of this, If you can not gain the consent of God, you can never escape from eternal damnation.
But how a person can gain the consent of God? The answer is: By Faith! None of the sins other than disbelief can justify eternal damnation. In this context the following Quranic verse is so meaningful. (blogger comment: the just of God is if you reconginze him for he few years you ahve in earth, repent and live as much as you able to do to please him you will have happy eternal life)
Quran (Chapter:Zumer/Verse:7) "If you are ungrateful, then surely Allah is Self-sufficient above all need of you; and He does not like ungratefulness in His servants; and if you are grateful, He likes it in you; and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another; then to your Lord is your return, then will He inform you of what you did; surely He is Cognizant of what is in the breasts."
Quran is full of words of wisdom. In fact it is a book of wisdom. Just read and see!
