View of mankind:
Words that put you thinking:
Every child is born with one true God's religion. Later he/she motivated by his/her parents or guardians or societies. So he/she doesn't know whether he/she is following the right path. The best one should do is to read his/her religious scripture to understand what is God. When he/she is mature enough, he/she has to find out the right way of life or true religion of almighty God. Every religion believes oneness of God. This site will help you to find out that only one God's true religion.
Test of true religion:
Suppose from now 1,000 year later one truth seeker come and ask all the religious teachers: "Why should I believe your religion is true?"
Hindu Guru/teacher: Krishna, Rama, Ganesha has done so and so that no human can do. So Hinduism is true and from God.
Jews Rabbi/teacher: Moses parted the Red sea and save his people. No human can do this, so Judaism is from God.
Christian pastor/teacher: Jesus gave life to dead people, no human can do this, so Christianity is from God.
Muslim sheikh/teacher: Mohammad saw divided the moon into two part, no human can do this, so Islam is from God.
The truth seeker: I guess all you have told me is a myth, it's not a fact, I do not believe it. Show me something today that I can believe.
How can those religious teachers be able to convince the truth seeker?
Believe/faith is two types:
One: Believing something blindly, listening from someone or parents. Your believe may not pass by the test of science or logic. Hence your believe is not profound and baseless. You should not believe something by listening from someone. Believe only when you can prove it yourself either scientifically or logically, doing so your confidence will be strengthen, and you will have peace of mind knowing that the religion you are following it is proven. No doubt about that.
Two: Believing something by scientifically or logically, it makes sense. 3000, 4000 or more earlier people would believe anything if it is said by an impress able person. In this 21st century science has progress so much that a lot of facts that can be prove by scientifically. A lot of facts still to prove, but the science has not reach there yet, it may take 100, 1000 or 2000 year or more longer when science will be more advance.
An example: When Moses (Musa A.S) went to Mount Senai to receive Torah (Taurat) for fourty days, the leader of the group of Israelites order the people to collect all the jewelers they had and made an ox for prayer on absence of Moses. They believed if they don't pray the ox they will be thrown out to the hell. They made the ox and prayed till Moses return. When Moses returned from mount Senai he was gravely angry seeing them praying the ox. He broke the ox and tells them God inscribe them the Torah to follow and then they believed on him. So this is how people believe. If you believe something, believe it with proof. Once human used to eat meat without coocking, now people use hundreds of spice to cook and decorate it. So apply your logic, put your faith on the test of science and logic and get it right.
Purpose of life in short:
Have you ever thought the purpose of our life?
Why are we here in this earth of this universe?
Well, there will be many different answers from every individual, while many of them don't know anything, and many of them do not think about that. I would like to say there is a purpose of our life. Our existence didn't happen coincidentally. We didn't came here for eat, drink, Mary, have family, enjoy have fun and die. If this is the case how do you justify between poor and rich, healthy and with many diseases, strong and weak, robber/thief and honest and so many condition that human being go through in their life. What is the just for those who have the power, oppressing the weak snatching their rights. I want you to think about yourself look around you. Certainly you can see lot of creation surrounding you, birds, animal, insects, river, sea, tree, wind, fire and many millions of creation around you. This is what we can see, can imagine but what about those we cannot see without telescope or microscope.
Think about the universe, we can see with our bare eyes only three planets out of nine of this universe and may be millions of star. Think about the universe which scientist came to know recently that it was created by a Big Bang from initially earth and heaven were joint together. By a big bang so beautiful universe has been created that it is operating so precisely, perfectly and under sudden rule. They are so organized so perfect in shape and all the planet are moving around the sun within its own course. Do you know that today scientist came to know that every sea's water is unique by its test, salinity, temperature and density? In a place where two seas meet together but the two different water does not mix with each other, there is a barrier in between them. Even a river fall to the sea but the two different water does not mix with other. Who is controlling this? Do you think all these are happening just by chance? Definitely not.
If someone gives you a glass on your hand and asks you to throw it in the floor and make ten small pieces of glass, is it possible? Definitely it is impossible. So the planet of this universe has not created by chance. There is a creator behind it. Whom we call God. If someone want to say like many atheist says there is no God, it is illogical. It is just denying the established fact for their personal lust. If there is a God who has created all of us and whatever in this universe we can see or cannot see, has he made us for no purpose? Why do you eat? Why do you work? Why do you travel? Why do you see a doctor? And why do you do so many things if there is no purpose behind all those of your action. So why God created us? Does not it sound that there is a purpose of every creation.
So it is clear that he (God) made us for some purpose. Like we own a hand phone for our need, but what happen when we fail to pay the bill, the service provider will warn you first then subsequently your service will be terminated. So he (God) gave us life in return he wants something from us. What he want from us? He wants recognition, he wants us to be thankful to him, and he wants us to follow his guidance. That is the real purpose of our life.
Scholar's view on Mohammad (SAW):
What Mahatma Gandhi says about Muhammad (SAW)?
Mahatma Gandhi, statement published in "Young India", 1924: I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of that great life.
George Bernard Shaw on Muhammad (SAW):
The Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, though an atheist, said:
"I have always held the religion of Muhammad (SAW) in high estimation because of its vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Savior of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness.
I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad (SAW) that it would be acceptable to the Europe of today. Shaw also stated that "If any religion has a chance of conquering England, nay Europe within the next hundred years, that religion is Islam" He said about the prophet Muhammad (PBUH): He was by far the most remarkable man that ever set foot on this earth. He preached a religion, founded a state, built a nation, laid down a moral code, initiated numerous social and political reforms, established a powerful and dynamic society to practice and represent his teachings and completely revolutionized the worlds of human thought and behavior for all times to come.
What Bernard Shaw has been predicted it is coming true word to word with more from his prediction like America, Australia, and even some of Asian countries.
