There are only two ways of passing the- life in this world-one according to one's own understanding and the other according to the guidance provided by God. Both these ways are extant in the human life right from the days of Adam who was the first man to come down to this world. But experience shows that, on the spiritual side, the former has always led the human life to Polytheism i.e. worship of several gods or goddesses, or Atheism i.e. point blank denial of the existence of God; and, on the material side, to exploitation of the masses by few rich persons of the society as in case of Capitalism, or to taking over of all the wealth and resources of income by the State to the total deprivation of the entire population of the country as in case of Communism. Thus spiritually as well as materially the human life has suffered in as much as neither the peace and purity of heart and soul could be achieved in this world nor is there any hope of comfort in the next.
On the contrary the latter way of living, i.e. the way based on the guidance provided by God Himself through His Prophets, has always proved to be the most befitting in all respects, spiritually as well as, materially. On one hand, there is belief in and worship of One God Who is really the Creator, Cherisher and Sustainer of all, and, on the other, the wealth is kept in free circulation for the use by and benefit of all, and all are allowed to have equal opportunities of acquiring, keeping and making use ...read more

"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down."
so wrote Charles Darwin in The Origin of Species, where he made his theory of evolution public. The theory applied materialist philosophy to nature and challenged the consensus that life on earth is the artifact of the Creator. During the following 150 years, many in the scientific community assumed that Darwin had almost accomplished this task. today, science demonstrates that they were mistaken. Findings in the last two decades done have shattered the basis of the theory. Key branches of science, such as paleontology, biochemistry, population genetics, comparative anatomy, and biophysics, indicate one after another that natural laws and chance effects proposed by the theory cannot explain the origin of life. Life turns out to be infinitely more complex than Darwin imagined in his time demonstrating that his theory has absolutely "broken down."

1 slam, the religion of truth and guidance, is built upon well-established and plain precepts. Accepted actions must rest upon a clear and sound belief and all the various matters and principles of belief trace back to three main tenets. These three tenets, which concern the Lord, the religion and the Prophet are also the subject of the questions in the grave, thus it is extremely important for the Muslim to learn them correctly and apply their meanings throughout his or her life.
Notes to The Three Tenets, by Shaykh `Abd ar-Rahman Ibn Muhammad Ibn Qasim, is a straightforward and simple explanation and commentary to the famous synopsis of the Islamic doctrine known as al-Usul ath-Thalathah [The Three Tenets], which was authored by Shaykh Muhammad Ibn SulaymanAt-Tamimi (d. 1206H / 1792).

Today is the day of a major milestone in history. The materialist philosophy, once imposed on the mass of humanity under the guise of science, is ironically being defeated today by science itself.
Some important development in June 2000
accelerated this great downfall of materialism. One of them was the Human Genome Project, an attempt to
draft a rough map of the human genome.Through this project,
the details of the "genetic information," which highlighted how superior God's creation of living beings is, have been revealed to mankind. Today, everyone who considers the results of this project and
finds out that a single human cell contains enough information to be stored in thousands of encyclopaedia pages, grasps what a great miracle of creation this is.
Nevertheless, evolutionist try to misinterpret this recent development, which, in truth, works against them and present it as evidence for "evolution." In this book, the above-mentioned evolutionist misconceptions are explained and the irrational and shallow nature of the objections raised to creation is clarified. In addition, the severity of the blow to Darwinism struck by the recent findings is explicity revealed. When you read this book, you too will see that materialist philosophy which rejects God is about of meet its end and that in the 21st century, humanity will return to accepting the real purpose of their creation by being relieved of deceits such as evolution.
Wickedness, injustice, grief, pessimism, trouble, loneliness, fear, stress, frustration, distrust, unscrupulousness, anxiety, rage, jealousy, resentment, drug addiction, immorality, gambling, prostitution, hunger, poverty, social corruption, theft, war, struggle, violence, oppression, fear of death...
The resolution of all these problematic issues is possible only by living by the principles of the "true religion." Unfavourable conditions are bound to exist so long as God's limits are ignored.To put it another way, people remain slaves to these complications as long as they avoid the values of the Qur'an. This is what is meant by the "nightmare of disbelief."
In this book, you will find how the regulation of life by the "norms of morality"-introduced by the Qur'an revealed to mankind by Godwill banish the "nightmare of disbelief." This book will provide you with explanations about how pessimism, corruption and social malaise can be eliminated from society; it will show you the ways in which the individual can surround himself with an ideal environment; it will enumerate the spiritual and material benefits he is likely to attain by adherence to religious norms of morality and will offer the unique alternative-the true religion, as the sole means of coping with life's problems.
Hujjatul Islam Imam Ghazzali Abu Hamid bin Muhammad bin al-Tusi, Muhammad bin Ahmad al-Shafi`i. Imam Ghazzali was born in Tabran (a city in Digtnit Tus) in 450 A.H. His father used to sell cotton yarn and his family was called Ghazzali. The word "ghazzal " means to weave. According to Arabic language it was sufficient to call the family as ghazzal but among the people of Khawarizm and Jurjan, a "y" is added to show the relationship with the profession. Thus they term an Attar as Attary and a Qassar as Qassary. According to Sam`ani, Imam Ghazzali was resident of a village by the name of Ghazzalah in the district of Tus and, therefore, he was called Ghazzali. Ibn Khalkan in the life sketch of Imam Ahmad, the younger brother of Imam Ghazzali, has quoted the above statement of Sam`ani and has stated that this finding is opposite to the finding of all other historians. However, there is no village by the name of Ghazzalah in the district of Tus, which is the greatest proof that the first narration is reliable.
