الحديث الحادي عشر
عَنْ أَبِي مُحَمَّدٍ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِي بْنِ أبِي طَالِبٍ سِبْطِ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَرَيْحَانَتِهِ رَضِيَ الله عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : حَفِظْتُ مِنْ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: دَعْ مَا يَرِيْبُكَ إِلَى مَا لاَ يَرِيْبُكَ
[رواه الترمذي وقال : حديث حسن صحيح]
11th Hadith Translation
On the authority of Abu Muhammad Al-Hasan-Ibn-Ali Ibn-Abee-Talib (R.A.), the grandson of the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.), and the one much loved by him, who said:
I memorized from the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “Leave that which makes you doubt for that which does not make you doubt.”
This hadith indicates that one should only perform an act or deed (which is permissible and proper) if he is positive or certain of it. Performing this act will lead to some kind of tranquility or happiness in this life and in the Hereafter. This is one of the benefits of applying the hadith.
In the other version of this hadith mentioned above, falsehood leads to doubt and never to tranquility. So if a believer finds his heart being disturbed by something (i.e. he feels uncertain or doubtful), then he should stay away from it. The heart of the true believer is tranquil at the sight of truth and righteousness. And the heart becomes unsure and shaky at the sight of falsehood and wrong.
This hadith equips Muslims with a practical criterion by which to judge doubtful acts and situations, and enables them to make the right decision concerning these matters. However, Muslims need to understand how to apply such a criterion correctly and not to be deceived by wrong perceptions or personal interest.

The Natural Instinct Is The Secret That Lies In The Soul. It Is The Essence Of Human Creation, The Secret Of Human Existence. It Is The Reference Of Secrets In The Existential Sense Of The Truth Of Man. Its Perfection Completes The Concept Of Man, Otherwise This Very Meaning Will Be Diminished And Man Will Lead A Life Similar To That Of The Beasts.
Any Damage That May Happen To It Will Inevitably Lead To A Disturbance – According To Its Danger – In The Existential Meaning Of Man, And To Psychological And Social Confusion, Which Overshadows The Spiritual And Physical Existence Of The Meanings Of Life! Since The Wounds Of The Instinct Has Degrees , Just As The Wounds Of The Body, Scratching The Skin Is Not Like Cutting The Flesh, Or Breaking The Bones, Or Stabbing The Chest! As Far As The Nature Changes, The Corruption On The Land Spreads! It Is One Of The Characteristics Of The Divine Manufacture, And The Divine Creation Of The Humankind.
Therefore, The Natural Instinct Is The First Psychological Image On Which Allah Created Man, Including The Basis Of Balance And Perfection. That Is, Before The Intervention Of The Human Hand With Scratching. Continue reading
The well-known neuroscientist David Ottoson – author of the “Challenges and Perspectives in Neuroscience” – says in the introduction of the book: “It is impossible for neuroscientists at any day, whether at the present time or the future, to fathom the mysteries of the brain and reveal his secrets definitely and with no doubt, because the human brain cannot understand himself.”
Is it Possible for Computers to Surpass the Brain’s Performance in the Future?
Hans Moravec, a scientist specialized in both neurology and computer science, made a comparison between the most modern computers in the year 2000 and the human brain. In the comparison, he did not take a part of the brain to compare with the modern computer. He resorted to the retina because of the extreme complexity of the brain parts. He did so based on the fact that the retina is a part of the brain extending to the back of the eye. The result of the comparison implemented in the experiment is that the efficiency of the modern computer resembles the efficiency of the brain of a small ant. Also, if the progress of computers continued in this increasing pattern, it is expected that the efficiency of computers would reach the brain efficiency of the simplest reptiles (salamanders) after forty years, i.e. 2040
As for the human brain, computer science cannot produce a machine that matches the brain’s efficiency, neither now nor in the future, because the brain’s efficiency matches a million of advanced computers working at the same time. If we assess the electric power consumed by these computers all at once, we will find out that it is about 100 thousand Amp, while the single human brain consumes 6 watt per minute (0.1 Amp).

A scientific study assures that Allah (SWT) supplied honey with natural antibiotics that kills dangerous microbes, let us read …
A new scientific study
A new scientific study has shown that honey has special characteristics that help to defend against germs. Honey also has high capability to resistbacteria that evolved their immune systems against standard medications.
Honey, in the old and modern era, has always been used as a natural medicine for many diseases. This new study might be a new twist to use honey for medical purposes.
According to the study that has been done through Sidney University in Australia, Dekarter, a scientific teacher in the biological and microbial science college says, “our research has shown that honey can replace many of the antibiotics that are used to treat cuts such as ointments and different creams. Also, using honey for healing purposes will increase the aging period of antibiotics. ” She also adds: ” most of the bacteria that cause infections in hospitals are at least resistance to one type of antibiotic, which means the need to produce new and stronger antibiotics that are able to execute bacteria that cause diseases.” Continue reading

All Praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all worlds. Now, we start with the seventeenth of Allah’s Beautiful Divine Names, “Al-Khaliq” (the Creator). First of all, Allah, All Mighty, says,
“O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allah), Who created you and those who were before you, so that you may attain self-protection.” [II; 21]
The above Quranic Verse shows clearly that you should worship “Al-Khaliq” (the Creator), Allah, Alone, and no one else. If you call upon another god than the Creator for worship and service, you will go far astray from the Right Way. This is because only the Creator guarantees happiness and prosperity to you if you worship Him. If you worship Him, you are safe from His Torment. If you worship Him, you are successful in the life of this present world and the world to come. If you worship Him, you will be admitted into His Garden of Paradise, wherein you will be happy forever. That is why the Creator, Allah, All Mighty, says,
“O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allah), Who created you and those who were before you, so that you may attain self-protection.”
In the sense that is common these days: The maker is the only one who can provide ways for using a certain machine or apparatus. Who has the right to issue instructions for the proper use or operation of a certain apparatus or machine? It is certainly the maker or producer of such apparatus or machine. If you follow the instructions of other parties than those of the maker, you will not be able to operate the machine properly, and you may even destroy it completely. Very simply, the mind tells you: Only the Maker should be worshipped, i.e. none except the Maker should be worshipped, none but the Maker should be obeyed, none except the Maker should be followed: “O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allah), Who created you and those who were before you.” Why? The answer is: does not the One, Who has created, know? Yes, indeed, because He is the Omniscient, the All-Aware, the All-Wise, the One Who knows man’s human nature and needs, Who knows what makes him good or evil, what makes him happy or miserable, what makes him high or lowly, what makes him peaceful or frightened. Yes, indeed! He, Allah, is the All-Aware, the All-Knowing. To this effect, He, All Mighty, says, Continue reading

In the vastness of this sixteenth Divine Name of Allah, Most Gracious, we seek happiness. The Name is “Al-Mu’iz, Al-Muthil” (the One Who honors and abases). However, before we set out in our study and analysis of this Beautiful Divine Name of Allah, I would like to put forward the following introduction:
When Allah, All Mighty, originated man, He equipped him with certain laws that govern his life. For example, He created in him the instinct, or motive, of hunger, which is the cause of his survival. Without such motive, man would not feel the need for food, and he shun food and drink and fade away. In other words, man’s appetite for food motivates him to search for it in order to survive. Such human motive, with which Allah, All Mighty, has endued mankind, is well known to everyone.
As for the survival of the human race, Allah, Most Gracious, has provided man with another motive, namely the sex motive, with which Allah has endued both males and females and which motivates them to meet together. That is why Allah, Most Gracious, has legislated marriage for mankind. In other words, food and drink guarantee survival of man as an individual, whereas sexual need guarantees survival of the human race.
However, psychologists confirm the existence of a third motive in man, which is by no means less important than the motives of food and sex mentioned above. This motive can be called the motive for “self-importance”, “self-achievement” or “self-confirmation”, which can be classified under what people call “dignity” or “self-esteem”. In addition to food, drink and women, man needs to feel important, needs to be admired whether for his body, wealth, family, experience, job, or even, sometimes, his tyranny or ability to do mischief. In other words, man is pre-disposed to feel proud of himself, to confirm himself, and to make others feel that he is important, excellent, mighty, or even dangerous.
Now, the question is: Why does Allah, All Mighty, implant in man the motive for food and drink? The answer is simply: in order to enable him to survive as an individual. Why does Allah implant in man the need for sex? The answer is simply: so that the human race survives. Continue reading
