"Verily my solats, my ibadah, my life and my death I surrender to Almighty Allah, Creator and Lord of all the worlds. Never will I associate anything with Him. So am I commanded and I am of those who are Muslims."

Iman towards Allah -The Building Blocks of Faith

Bismillahirrahmannirrahim.
In the name of Allah, God Almighty, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Ta'ala Wabarakatuh.
May the Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon those of you who are Believers.


















Picture shows the peaceful sanctuary of a mosque here near KL. It's the Masjid Al Azim in Pandan Indah, Selangor Darul Ehsan. You as a Muslim ought to go take a break every now and then at such masjids. Its good for you and will help you regain your inner sense of peace and recharge your soul. Insya Allah.

I would like to draw your attention to the Importance of us who are Muslims @ Believers to understand the highest status of us being the Khalifah's upon this temporal Life here on Earth compared to other creatures whom Allah the Almighty has chosen to be here amongst us from the times when our souls were created by Him, to the various stages of our coming into being.

Mankind ought to realize that we who are the descendants of our Father, the blessed Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam have been created by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to be able through our own enterprise to rise higher than the rest of creation in status yet are also capable of falling lower than the lowliest creation of Allah through our own volition!

In the Final Testament of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in the Holy Qur'an, in the Surah at-Tin, Chapter 95 Verses 4 to 6, Allah the Almighty says of us:





4. Laqad khalaqna al-insana fee ahsani taqweemin

4. We have indeed created man in the best of moulds,





5. Thumma radadnahu asfala safileena

5. Then do We abase him (to be) the lowest of the low,-





6. Illa allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati falahum ajrun ghayru mamnoonin

6. Except such as believe and do righteous deeds: For they shall have a reward unfailing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Far from being the results of a Charles Darwin theorized fruit of evolution from the apes as that idiot would have you believe, we human beings are created by Allah, Ar Rahman, Ar Raheem to be in the best form as we are today , right from the very first human created by Allah in Jannatul Firdaus @ the highest Paradise, that was our Father, Saiyidina Adam Alaihis Salam.

The revelations of the Surah at Tin above clarifies as to our noble position to be given the choice by Allah the Most Merciful to strive in our time here on Earth to rise above all the rest of His Creation and excel to be the best amongst all other creations of Allah in our universe.

Nevertheless, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala also warns us of the consequences of our being capable to fall lower than the lowest of His creations IF we fail to heed His Warnings and prefer to remain obstinate and refuse to submit ourselves to His Commandments out of our own recalcitrance and free will.

Let us ponder upon the implications of our choices here on Earth.

When Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala reveals that 4th verse in the Surah at Tin:





4. Laqad khalaqna al-insana fee ahsani taqweemin

4. We have indeed created man in the best of moulds,

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala tells us that He created us in the best of moulds. We do not come into being by a fluke of an accidental lab experiment or something!

Any sane rational human being, capable of intelligent thought and reasoning would know how unique each and every one of us are when compared to any other being on Earth.

Each and everyone of us is created special. We are different from each other right down to our very cells and molecules.

That is something that only smart and bright human beings here can understand and accept this fact. Recalcitrants refuse to listen to reason or accept the absolute truth right before their very eyes and comprehension!

Malaysiakini at times contains letters and links of those who choose to be so, talking about Islam without knowing the truth of their blinkered and false understandings.

Hence this attempt to clear such misunderstandings amongst those folks. Hopefully, they will come to understand Islam better. I know that it's not easy to change people's mindsets overnight.

What I can do within the remaining seconds of my life here is to help them out with these articles of Islamic Knowledge and Understanding of their rights to be with Allah in the true sense and not waste away their times here on Earth due to the failures of Muslims to carry out Allah's Trust upon them to pass on the Message of Islam. Let me continue, Insya Allah.

Mankind has been given the Faculty of Thought and Alhamdulillah, thanks to that gift, here we are in the Last Ages of the Human Existence, capable of utilizing the contents of this Earth to the best usage to the benefit of all of Earth's inhabitants.

We are here using God's gift of intelligence, reaping the benefits of creativity of our fellow human beings in using this internet to exchange information amongst us, mankind on a global scale.

Something that not any other creature or species of living beings are capable of , all these years of the planet Earth and all it's other sister planets having being created by Allah in this universe that we have come to learn about , existing amongst the myriads of other universes that only since the last couple of hundreds of years ago , human scientists and astronomers have come to discover.

The Final Testament of Allah, which is the Holy Al-Qur'an Al Kareem, revealed in its entirety to the Final and Greatest Messenger of God, Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam through the oral verbalizations of the Archangel Jibreel Alaihis Salam to Muhammad by piecemeal contains scientifically proven truths and facts about the origin of this universe which is being discovered to be exactly true by current day scientists, a thousand four hundred over years ago to the unlettered prophet of God in Makkah, when it was but a small desert dwelling and home to the first masjid of Allah upon this Earth, raised by our Father the blessed Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam with the help of Allah's Malaikats @ the Angels, right there where the rebuilt Kaabah still stands today.

The original Kaabah built by our Father, the Prophet Adam Alaihis Salam was destroyed and washed away during the Great Flood of Prophet Nuuh @ Noah Alaihis Salam's time. The present Kaabah was rebuilt by Prophet Ibrahim @ Abraham Alaihis Salam with the help of Prophet Ismail @ Ishmael Alaihis Salam, forefather of our Blessed Messenger of Allah and Seal of the Prophets, Muhammad ibni Abdullah, Khatamun Nabiyyi and Rahmatulillahil Alamin, Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam.

The understanding of these verses is that those of us who are Muslims @ Believers in Almighty Allah amongst the Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Mankind stand today as the Viceroy of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala in proclaiming to the rest of the human kind that we are those who uphold the trusts bequeathed to us by our Father Adam Alaihis Salam to continue spreading the Truth and Goodwill of Islam, ad Deen ul Haqq to all those who put their God given Faculty of Reason to the best usage that is to submit to Our Creator, Allahu Akbar!

With the Faculty of Thought and Reasoning that Allah gave us, has made us mankind to be civilized and cultured, always improving ourselves in so many ways and inventing things and systems for our benefit and the rest of the world as we know it. We are still discovering the bounties of this Earth that Allah has created and yet there are billions and zillions of other aspects of this Life that we are still coming to learn about and tap into its benefits.

From being newborn babies, delivered from our mother's wombs, naked and helpless, we are raised by our parents or our guardians to be members of the human kind. We are clothed and taught by our parents or guardians to be whatever our parents want us to be.

Each and every one of us is born pure and free from sin. We can be likened to being blank dvd's @ using the modern metaphor - free to be programmed and burned into whatever our parents or guardians decide that they wish for us to be?

The Blessed Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam said of us to be like a white piece of cloth, ready to be painted upon with the wishes and wants of our parents.

Although our souls when created by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala swore and promised to obey only Him, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala still allows us to be born free and gives us the freedom to choose between the Truth of Islam and other creeds to prove to His Malaikat's that He, Allah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem knows us best as to our capabilities to return to the 'Fitrah' of being Muslims in spirit and when added on with our own recognization of our God given birthrights choose Goodness over Evil, Salvation over Lost Causes and Iman instead of Kufr.

Only those who exercise their God given intellect will be able to choose the truth instead of falsehood.

All these is only achievable by rational thinking and reasoning. From being born clueless to our surroundings, we learn to recognize signs of our Creator in us and we return to the basics of our being. Each of us is imbued with a natural sense of goodness in us and we subconsciously yearn towards worshipping Allah although He chooses to be invincible to us for now in this stage of our life.

Each of us has our spirit, our Ruuh imbued in us. A living spirit which manifests itself through our subconsciousness, able to think without vocalizing it. Able to comprehend without stirring a muscle. Able to feel without outwardly showing any signs of it except those who have developed an acute sense of knowing to detect such signs through years and years of study and observations of life through a series of willful discipline and research into the many realms of knowledge.

To be continued.
