  1. Read isaac newton's story in that case
  2. there used to be books or they travel to different lands seeking out the teachers they need. an accessible story which can portray this is Ibn Sina's.
  3. Haha thanks for the concern, I have studied it well and my information is not from documentaries haha, I will be giving it an attempt and see how it goes. Its more of the health aspects to me as I believe its better healthwise without or very low levels of it. Of course I agree I would not try to impose anything on anyone else, this is my personal choice of an experience as it would be everybody elses choice. My issue is currently more around the health aspects of dairy, I found improvements in my health when I cut it out, im glad im getting a general idea that its perfectly okay and down to personal opinon.
  4. The more islamic it is and its people, Allah will help them thrive for he does not abandon the believers. Ofcourse we need to do our bit but the west is slowly crumbling, as long as Iran can hold out the economic downfall in the west it will then rise. America already needs a babysitter for their new president, not sure how many relations you would want with such a person.
  5. As you may know I had a very similar problem, I cannot stress how much keeping yourself busy has an effect on getting rid of this feeling. every single day of mine is packed with something where I'm so busy trying to accomplish so much in life in such a constricted amount of time I have no time to think about depression, sadness or whatever negative emotion that is connected with them. Overthinking is a natural phenomena when the brain has nothing else to think about it begins to analyse and re-analyse everything. You may not realise this but it is a mechanism of self-reflection and improvement if controlled, if left however alone it leads to despair and depression. Have something you do to stimulate your mind so it focuses on something else rather than past, present and future situations. If I could wrap up the advice in one sentence I would say: The brain loves to think so give it something to think about. Your brain is more active when your asleep believe it or not it never stops. That should give you something to think about (pun intended)
  6. Salam, I have been researching veganism extensively now and I have found an overwhelming amount of evidence that supports no meat & dairy is superior to moderation at any level, as everything from meat sources and dairy can be acquired through a proper plant-based diet. I am not sure how things were for the Prophet and his time but in this day and age it's become a common fact that livestock is detrimental to the planet, our health and just the ecosystem in general, while putting a lot of suffering on the animal itself. I in my personal belief from what I have learnt now, is that eggs, diary and I will say all if not all halal sources of meat are all not 'permissible' and I use this term loosely not following Islamic Jurisprudence but more of a humane idea, because of the cruelty the animals go through, they are not treated as they should. I have been deciding to transition more and more into a life of veganism but I continuously get told 'its wrong' 'goes against the sunnah of the prophet' 'it's not really Islamic to go lifetime vegan' I want to know the legitimacy of these claims as I have enough evidence to support the claim that Veganism is indeed the forward way to go for human's evolution for health. Is it really unislamic to go vegan? I have not seen mentions of the Prophet eating any dairy (apart from Goats milk) and only ate meat when necessary for war etc. This could also be because of the limitation of sources of food they had at the time whereas we have sources from all over the world, all in one supermarket, all fruits and vegetables available at any season. I am interested to hear the opinions of everyone who wishes to pitch in.
  7. Yes I agree and have read your topic, I study chemistry so I understand the isotope concepts you indulged in, what I am saying is I first understood the verse to mean the earth was created in 2 days, I had not paid attention from there on and stopped there then made my assumption on the 2/6, mistake on my part as I should have looked further. I would need to go back and relearn the passage tafsir and context. I am not taking the Quran as a primary source for my knowledge, for rules and morals it is the absolute. But when it comes to the age of the Earth I would agree its 4.56 (based on what we know) as the age give or take.
  8. Well that is how I would understand it yes, based on my logic. of course there may be a much better explanation and would need to find an actual tafsir.
  9. I agree it equates to 2.3 billion years, I wouldn't have a better answer from my knowledge I've read the first two are for the formation of the earth, and the 4 days for sustenance is including the two days of formation.
  10. I now understand your point, my mind is open, after your explained the passage further with the 4 days etc, this made sense to me why you said I was a conclusion then manipulating evidence, I was not aware of the complete explanation.
  11. The method they use to determine the age is quite reliable, its complex but really interesting.
  12. Of course I always admire your reason and logical thinking, the only reason I would claim for them to be close is because there are no finite numbers, but the ratio of 3 is definitely within the confidence intervals. I do not take it as that was the intention of the scripture as I am no scholar to make such claims.
  13. I mentioned it above with references to the Ayats, turns out this website already came to the same conclusion before I did, http://www.speed-light.info/miracles_of_quran/age_of_universe.htm
  14. Although I do not claim any of these to be a miracle so to speak, I merely am putting out what I found to be criticised, where I would answer you to that is just as @Engineer73 has said, the universe is almost 14 billion years old not there quite yet, if you did lower the number down to 13.9 or so to speak, you get to an answer of 3.059, and the numbers are all approximate but they do resemble a ratio of 2:6, to prove its not exactly 3.0 would require exact years which we would not be able to achieve, the ratio's do still stand extremely close. I would welcome any criticism towards my claim, I am still trying to find a weakness to it myself and would not be offended if it is wrong.
  15. I have come across an interesting connection between to ayats and came to an interesting conclusion. I have never heard of this 'miracle' before can anyone with more Quranic knowledge verify if Im correct in my claim of a miracle in the Quran: In the Quran, 41:9, Allah says: 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." In many many ayats and this one including , 25:59, Allah says: He who created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six days and then established Himself above the Throne - the Most Merciful, so ask about Him one well informed. There is pretty much a unanimous decision in the Quran the word days refer to a period of time, and in the same sense, the Quran is saying the Universe has been made in 6 days, and the Earth was made in two, this means its a 2:6 ratio, i.e. the Earth took 1/3 of the time it took to form the Universe. A quick google search brings back the Universe has been around for almost 14 billion years, and the earth has been around for 4.543 billion years, 4.453 / 14.0 = ~3.0, the same ratio so that means according to scientifical observation, the earth took about 1/3 of the time it took to form the Universe. The Quran, predicted how long the Earth has been around for? This is obviously to change with time as in the next billion years, so it wouldn't still stand after that time as the ratio would change but I'm pretty sure Day of Judgement will occur within 1 billion years...
