When Allah (s.w.t.) Rejects

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

I have been a witness for many conversions; both new Muslims and Muslims coming back.  For some, it is easy and for others, it is more difficult.  There have also been those who have been turned away for various reasons.  Such as the ones that turn up intoxicated.

But there was one event witnessed by my really close friend, also a convert.  There was another convert to Islam who was a problematic character of sorts.  Every time he had some challenge, he would blame Allah (s.w.t.) and recant his shahadah.  After a while, once whatever that vexed him was resolved, he would “tawbah” and retake the shahadah.

It was a fatal bad habit.  One day, he did the same thing.  He recanted his shahadah and reverted to his prior lifestyle.  After a while, he wanted to come back.  In clear view of the people of the house, he could not say the shahadah.  And so, someone passed him the Qur’an and asked him to try and read it from the preface.  He said the book was blank.  Every Qur’an that was opened appeared blank to him.  He could not say any words from it and he could not see any words from any Qur’an.

The lesson here is not to think we have the ability to reject Allah (s.w.t.) and return at our leisure.  When Allah (s.w.t.) Rejects us, it is only our loss.  And we seek Refuge in Him from that.

    There is an excellent collection of some hadiths that not many non-scholars know, but are very accurate about the future, and can be used as proofs of the Prophet, see below, and I've added some other stuff you insha'Allah would find of interest:

    Genetics hadith:

    Its interesting the hadiths talk about earthquakes increasing near end of times. Well the article scientist quoted below says global warming is causing more earthquakes:

    Also a good article analysing it from Islamic view:

    Interesting study about how the hadith talk about proportion of land to sea mass, geography and science :
    http://www.furqaniaacademy.com/English/Articles/GeogConcepts.htm
    Btw I wanted to draw your attention to this short Sheikh Hamza Yusuf video on Madinah being protected from lava and a non-Muslim geologist (Dr John Roobol http://www.saudicaves.com/lava/introobl.htm) commenting on it. Its very interesting, especially since the lava went against gravity there, and the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) predicted it:

    A friend of mine tested some of the claims and proved about the numerical aspects of the Qur'an's word:
    Here's part 1:

    Part 2:

    And he said:
    ""On your second point, I would challenge you to produce similar patterns in any other book. I tried this exercise on Alice in Wonderland and Romeo & Juliet. I did not find even one example of repetition of any two similar words. Not one."

    I think you'll like this because it talks about bees (one example is page 67), mosquitos etc. It is the proceedings of the 2011 scientific conference on the Qur'an and Sunnah
    Please feel free to share with others.
    The part from pgs 99-103 are really interesting about dogs hadith.
    You can also see the link here:

    Here's the Prophet's mantle amazing incident (its got Al Jazeera's video where they show the scientists etc. So you can see that there is a popular news source):
