In the name of God, the beneficent the merciful



IslamiCity Advertiser

"God, the supreme being, is neither circumscribed by space, nor touched by time; he cannot be found in a particular direction, and his essence cannot change. The secret conversation is thus entirely spiritual; it is a direct encounter between God and the soul, abstracted from all material constraints."

- Ibn Sina

Solomon’s Messenger Bird
The hoopoe (hud-hud) is an elegant bird, which is related to the hornbill. It gets its unusual name from its shrill call of “hoops”, which rings clear and far and is repeated two or three times. Often the cry is cut off very short. This may be caused by the bird’s bill sharply striking the ground at the end of the note. It is one of the Old World’s non-passerine birds. Its scientific name is “Upupa epops” (family Upupidae, of the roller order, Coraciiformes). King-fishers, bee-eaters, rollers, hoopoes and hornbills are collectively referred to as roller-like birds.
The Best Gift From God
The best gift from God is good health. Everyone should reach that goal by preserving it for now and in the future. (Saying of the Prophet Muhammad on health). In few areas did science, community benefit and religious duty come so closely and productively together in early Islam as they did in medicine. The Prophet Muhammad frequently emphasized the importance of good health and healthy eating.
Allah Speaks and Science Discovers
Both the Bible and the Qur’an teach that the Living God created the whole universe to be conducive to the universal evolution of life. Recent astrophysical studies discover ever more evidence of the truth of this Biblical and Qur’anic view. Space may be vast, but it isn’t that lonely. New research indicates the Milky Way is teeming with billions of planets like ours, circling stars just like our sun.
