The Creation of the Universe & Islam are One; Both were designed by the All-Mighty God Simultanously

Allah (All-Mighty God) established Islam as the origin from the very beginning of the creation of the Universe and anything that came into existence (stars, galaxy, plants, trees, animals & all other species, Angels, etc..) are all Muslims which means that they all are in full submission.

For example; the moon cannot catch up to the sun, the sun cannot catch up to the moon, the night cannot bypass the day etc.. Everything is programmed and cannot override what Allah (All-Mighty God) designed for them in order for this whole Universe to be in harmony. Without this submission the stars will collide with one another, the moon would overtake the sun so that there would be no sunlight on earth etc..

Al-Qur’an states in Chapter 36 Verse 40: It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.

In Chapter 41 verses 9-12 states: Say, “Do you indeed disbelieve in He who created the earth in two days and attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the worlds.”

And He placed on the earth firmly set mountains over its surface, and He blessed it and determined therein its [creatures’] sustenance in four days without distinction – for [the information] of those who ask.

Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, “Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion.” They said, “We have come willingly.”

And He completed them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps (the stars) and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

In Chapter 20: Verses 123-124: God the All-Mighty [ Allah ](All-Mighty God) said, “Descend from Paradise – all, [your descendants] being enemies to one another. And if there should come to you guidance from Me – then whoever follows My guidance will neither go astray [in the world] nor suffer [in the Hereafter].

And whoever turns away from My remembrance – indeed, he will have a depressed life, and We will gather him on the Day of Resurrection blind.”

With the regards to the Jinn (creatures created from smokeless fire) & humans who were the offspring of Adam, whom was created from mud, (peace be upon him) and who was the first Prophet on earth to play as a role model for his children and grandchildren manifesting Islam as a way of life, they were created to begin with to submit to the only 1 God. Yet, the majority were tempted by Satan and this material life and ended by disobeying the All-Mighty God.

The birth of Islam as a way of life was Allah’s (God) whole purpose to govern the humans to live this short life under His guidance and set of laws in terms of dos and don’ts on earth so they would be rewarded with eternal life in Paradise if followed.

The last link of this original message of Islam from day 1 of the Universe’s creation ended with the revelation of the book which is Al-Qur’an and the commissioning of the last & seal of the Prophets & Messengers, Muhammad (peace & blessings be upon him).

The revelation of the last Holy book which is Al-Qur’an abrogates all previous books (Torah, Bible etc..) as Al-Qur’an was sent to all people as was Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) sent to all people with the last set of laws and commandments for all mankind to live by in this life.

Ramadan Mubarak!
Ramadan is a month to compete in doing good deeds, engage in deep worship and begging for our sins to be forgiven.

Allah has blessed us with this month so we can get closer to Him and connect or reconnect strongly to our faith.

Ramadan teaches us discipline. So no one should wait to reengage in actions that are hated by Allah once Ramadan is over, then did you accomplish or benefit from Ramadan at all?

Take advantage of this month and make a strong commitment now and after this month to study your Deen, Read Al-Qur'an WITH UNDERSTANDING & DEEP CONTEMPLATION, and always be mindful of ALL your WORDS & ACTIONS.

Ramadan should make us aware of how we conduct ourselves in public and in private. We should evaluate & examine ourselves so we can fix ourselves in hopes that ALLAH will forgive our sins and increase our status with supreme knowledge.

We should not be two people one in the month of Ramadan and another once Ramadan is over.

We should not strive for Allah's Mercy & Forgiveness just in the month of Ramadan but make a lasting well bonded commitment to continue this enthusiastic spirit everyday until our last.
