(From the Book Seerat Sarwar e Aalamﷺ) God has most graciously provided man with all that he needs in this Universe.

All those potentialities, powers and faculties, that a man needs or can need are most carefully provided and marvelously set in his tiny body. Every minute requirement is foreseen and provided for.

Seerah of the World Leader (PBUH) - 2: Rationale of Prophethood

(From the Book Seerat Sarwar e Aalamﷺ) We see in big cities that hundreds of factories are running on electricity. Trains and Trams are running.

(From the Book Seerat Sarwar e Aalamﷺ) THE Lord of creation, the Creator and Sovereign of the entire universe, created man* on earth (which is merely a part of His boundless realm). He also endowed man with understanding, with the ability to distinguish between the good and evil, with the freedom of choice and volition, and with the power to exercise his latent potentialities.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Rights of Women and Slaves

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Rights of Women and Slaves

WHEN Muhammadﷺﷺ became Prophet, women of that time were deprived of their human rights. They were just a comfort material for men and a source of entertainment. The men kept and treated them as they wished. Men were disappointed and ashamed at the birth of a girl and buried them alive. In the Qur’an, Allah says: “And when the girl [who was] buried alive is asked for what sin she was killed” (81: 8-9).
