In her book " A History of God " Karen Armstrong has
described in chapter No.10 as under:
"By the beginning of the 19th century,atheism was
definitely on the agenda.The advances in science and
technology were creating a new spirit of autonomy and
independence which led some to declare their independence
It is a negative thinking as a result of which Pharaoh and
all his arrogant followers have been destroyed.In His last
book GOD Almighty has clearly Mentioned that "Nor shall
they compass aught of His Knowledge except as He Allows."
(See Verse No.255 of chapter No.2 Al-Baqarah i:e the Cow)
All the scientific developments in the past,present and future
are surrounded by these Words of GOD Almighty.
The scientific developments don't lead the human beings to
the path of arrogance but they urge upon being thankful and
grateful to GOD Almighty for Giving knowledge and ability.All
the things such as "D.N.A.","Atom","Energy","Spirit / Soul"
have been Created by the Great Creator i:e GOD Almighty.
Can anyone be born according to his /her own will? Can we
prevent death forever? Can we bring those back who have
gone from this world? Can we stop earth quake or control
the system of rain?
People believe in Satan (the enemy of mankind),the spirit
or soul, jinn and many other things without seeing them
but some people are hesitant to believe in an unseen GOD
Who is the Creator of all,the visible and invisible things.
It is recommended that the entire Verse No.255 of chapter
No.2 of the last book of GOD Almighty should be perused,
the translation of which is as under:
"ALLAH.There is no god but He-the Living,the Self-subsisting,
Eternal.No slumber can seize Him nor sleep.His are all things
in the heavens and on earth.Who is there can intercede in His
Presence except as He Allows? He Knows what(appears
to His creatures as) before or after or behind them.Nor shall
they compass aught of His Knowledge except as He Permits.
His Throne doth extend over the heaven and the earth,and He
Feels no fatigue in Guarding and Preserving them for He is the
Most High,the Supreme (in Glory)"

The first relationship in this world Created by the GOD ALMIGHTY was that of husband and wife.Adam,the first of mankind was blessed with Eve,his wife,the mother of all human beings.Indeed,the relationship of mother and her child is very important and sacred but it came into existence as a result of the first relationship.It is a fact that creation of pairs in the world is a valuable and merciful Gift of GOD ALMIGHTY.The genders,masculine and feminine,blessed with love and affection are beautiful creation of our Lord.The last Holy Book of GOD ALMIGHTY says in verse No. 36 of chapter 36 (Yaaseen) as under:
"Glory to GOD ALMIGHTY (ALLAH) ,Who Created in pairs all things that the earth produces, as well as their own (human) kind and (other) things of which they have no knowledge."
Science has now declared that genders are available in plants but this fact was already disclosed about 1500 years before, in the last Holy Book of GOD ALMIGHTY.
It is an unassailable fact that the series and succession of life in generations was not possible in the absence of pairs and sex.
We, the human beings are the most eminent of all creatures of GOD ALMIGHTY as such He has prescribed principles for our sexual relationship also.
We may mention here the story of Prophet Lot/Lut (p.b.u.h.) who was the nephew of Prophet Abraham (p.b.u.h.).He was sent by the GOD ALMIGHTY to the city of Sodom (Sadum) situated on the Western shore of the Dead Sea.The city in question was immensely filled with evils.The most common evil among the people was that men had sex with men instead of with women.According to Instructions of GOD ALMIGHTY,Prophet Lot (p.b.u.h.) warned them to give up this filthy act but they refused to obey him and threatened to drive him out of the city. Consequently,as a result of Wrath of GOD ALMIGHTY a terrific storm of stones rained on the city and everyone was destroyed completely while Prophet Lot (p.b.u.h.) and his followers were saved as they already migrated from the city according to Instruction of GOD ALMIGHTY.
There is a misunderstanding that the last book of GOD ALMIGHTY (ALLAH) ,Orders the believers to have 4 wives at a time but it is not true.In fact,there was a practice of having so many wives at a time which tendency was curbed and the limit of 4 marriages was imposed.Verse No. 3 of chapter No.4 (Al-Nisa i:e the women) of the last book of GOD ALMIGHTY begins with these instructions:
"If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans,marry women of your choice,two,or three,or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one,"
Some people object on the number of wives of the last Prophet (p.b.u.h.) but he was not the first prophet to have more than one wife.According to Bible and Torah, Prophet Abraham (p.b.u.h.) had 3 wives, Prophet Jacob (p.b.u.h.) had 4 wives, Prophet Moses (p.b.u.h.) had 4 wives, Prophet David(p.b.u.h.) had 9 wives and Prophet Solomon (p.b.u.h.) had 700 wives.
Almost all the wives of the last Prophet (p.b.u.h.) except one, were widows and he married each of them for a reason mostly to support widows/orphans.His first wife was also a widow and during her life time, the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) did not marry again for a period of 25 years.His wife Umme Salamah was a widow with 4 orphans, 2 boys and 2 girls.He loved the orphan children more than their real father. His wife Zainab bint Gahsh who was the Prophet's cousin, got married with him after being divorced by her first husband Zayd.
It is observed from the above details that the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) married the widows/divorced to protect them.Only one wife of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) , named Aisha was virgin at the time of marriage.There is a common confusion about her age at the time of her marriage with the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.). According to almost all the historians, Asma,the elder sister of Aisha,was 10 years older than Aisha. Asma is reported to die in 73 A.H. (692 A.D.) when she was100 years old,as such at the time of Hijrah she was 27 years old and Aisha was 17 years old and not 7 years old which probably is a mistake due to omission of figure 1.She was delivered to the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) about one year after Hijrah in the month of Shawal. (See this link under the
heading "692 : Death" and calculate the actual age of Aisha at the time of her marriage :
Also read the 2nd and the last paragraphs of this link :
Husband and wife are Instructed by the GOD ALMIGHTY (ALLAH) to keep secret of each other. Verse No.187 of chapter 2 of the Holy Qur'aan begins with these instructions:
"Permitted to you on the night of the fasts,is the approach to your wives. They are your garments and you are their garments"

Barack Obama in his book "The Audacity of Hope" has criticized the statement of Clergymen of the Church regarding creation of the world,earth and skies in a week as all the scientific truths are in negation of this idea.
The Clergymen gave this statement on the basis of Gospels but due to being translated/tampered complete information is not available.
Let us see what the last book of GOD ALMIGHTY says in this regard.
Verses 4 and 5 of Surah No.32 (Al-Sajda or Adoration) tell as under:
"It is GOD ALMIGHTY (ALLAH) Who has Created the heavens and the earth, and all between them, in six days , then He Established Himself on the Throne: you have none, besides Him to
protect or intercede (for you) : will you not then receive admonition?He Directs the affairs from the heavens to the earth:then it ascends unto Him , on a Day the measure of which is a thousand
years of your reckoning."
In Verse No.4 of Surah No.70 (Al-Ma'aarij or the Ways of Ascent) it has been told that " The angels and the Spirit ascend unto Him in a Day the measure of which is fifty thousand years."
It is observed from the above details that the Days in which the world, earth and skies were created,were not of ordinary duration but very much lengthy,which is not in negation of
It is not a strange example as the duration of day during summer and winter is different and in North and South Poles the day is as long as six months' period. In other planets also, the duration of day and night is different.
It is suggested that we should not make objections on any statement before making thorough search and having complete information about it.The last book of GOD ALMIGHTY is in His
Own Words from A to Z and is free from doubt. Thomas Carlyle who was born in 1795 in England and died in 1881
has accepted this fact in his lecture given on 8th May , 1840 (Friday) from 9 A.M.
to 9 P.M. at Royal Auditorium , Edinborough (Edenbra).This lecture is available in his famous
book "On Heroes , Hero-Worship and the Heroic in History" (Also see his book "Sartor Resartus").
In fact all the universe is obedient (in Arabic "muslim") to GOD ALMIGHTY. This fact has also been described by German philosopher and writer Goethe in the 18th century.
There are two categories of being obedient to GOD ALMIGHTY , willingly ( in Arabic " tau'an ")
and un-willingly ( in Arabic " karhan "). All the creatures are compelled to be obedient in respect of breathing , eating , drinking , sleeping etc. but those who are willingly obedient also, will be blessed with reward.
The earth and the sky are also obedient willingly , as mentioned in the last book of GOD ALMIGHTY (Chapter No.41 , Verse No. 11 )

The main or principal name of GOD ALMIGHTY is "ALLAH". There is no plural of this word. Similar word is also available in the New Testament(Gospel). It is an opinion that this word means "Al-Elah" i:e "The Deity". The word "Elah" stands for "Deity" and "Al" for "The" in Arabic. In the Old Testament , the names of GOD ALMIGHTY are "JEHOVAH " and "YAHWEH" which are nearer to pronunciation of "ALLAH".
The Gospels tell us about the last words of Jesus. According to Gospels(the New Testament) there are three different versions of the last words uttered by Jesus on the cross.The reason is that ,only translations of Gospel are available instead of the original text revealed on Jesus.
According to Mark (15:34-35), Jesus yelled with a great shout "Eloi,Eloi, lama sabachthani?". Through the centuries, according to interpreters the last words of Jesus meant "My GOD, my GOD, why have You forsaken me?"
In Hebrew it is "Eli,Eli, lama azabtani?" while in Aramaic "Elahi,Elahi,lema sebaqtani?".
The word "Elahi" is available in Arabic which means "My Deity" or "My GOD".This word is also available in Psalms of David in the same meanings(the text of Psalm 22:2 in Aramaic).
According to Mark,followed by Matthew(27:46-47) the element of screaming has further been emphasized that some of those present at the moment would have understood that he(Jesus) was calling for the prophet Elijah.
According to John(19:30) "As Jesus took the wine,he exclaimed:'It is finished' and bowing his head,he handed over his spirit."
According to Luke(23:46) there is a third and different version of the last words of Jesus "And shouting with a great shout Jesus said 'Father into thy hands I commit my spirit."
It is obvious that the scene of death of Jesus in past tense can't be described in a book revealed on him in his life time.It is only a historical statement which has been added to Gospel.
Let us discuss the word "father" quoted in translation of Gospel.There is a word "Rab" which means "Preserver, Cherisher, Sustainer, Master, Deity or Lord". This word was also used for "father" and its plural is "arbaab"(verse No.31 of surah viz chapter No.9 of the last book of GOD ALMIGHTY). When used for GOD ALMIGHTY there is no plural of this word.
Jesus had used the same word for GOD ALMIGHTY which was wrongly translated as "father" by the interpreters.GOD ALMIGHTY is far away from eating,drinking and sexual relations.Those who eat and drink are subject to death and He will never die.He is The Creator and all others are His creatures who are subject to death.Adam was born without father and mother and Jesus was born without father as GOD ALMIGHTY is Omnipotent(Having Power over all things). According to verse No.59 of surah No.3 Aal-e-Imran (The Family of
Imran):" The similitude of Jesus before GOD ALMIGHTY is as that of Adam; He Created him from dust,then Said to him "Be": and he was."
There are two categories of prophets; "Rasool" and "Nabi". The word "Rasool" is derived from Arabic word "Irsaal" which means "to send". This is used for a Messenger of GOD ALMIGHTY Blessed with a Book, such as Moses,David,Jesus and Mohammed (Peace be upon them).
"Nabi" is an assistant/deputy to "Rasool" such as Aaron,Solomon,Zachariah and John(Peace be upon them). The word "Nabi" is derived from "Naaib" which means "deputy or assistant".
"Rasool" has also the powers of "Nabi" as such he is greater than "Nabi". Every Rasool is also a Nabi but it is not necessary that every Nabi is also a Rasool. No Rasool was killed or murdered as he was sent specially by GOD ALMIGHTY. However,other prophets who were not "Rasool" but only "Nabi",were murdered such as Zakariya (Zachariah) and John(Peace be upon them). Jesus was also a "Rasool"(Messenger of GOD ALMIGHTY Blessed with a Book) as such it was not appropriate for him to be killed/murdered ,but another person of the same resemblance was crucified in his place.Verses 156 to 159 of surah No.4 "An-Nisa"(Women) of the last Book of GOD ALMIGHTY tell as under:
"That they rejected faith;that they uttered against Mary a grave false charge;that they said(in boast),"We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary,the Messenger of GOD;but they killed him not,nor crucified him.Only a likeness of that was shown to them.And those who differ therein are full of doubts,with no (certain) knowledge. But only conjecture to follow,for of a surety they killed him not;nay,GOD Raised him up unto Himself; and GOD is Exalted in Power,Wise, and there is none of the people of the Book but must believe in him before his death,and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them."
GOD ALMIGHTY is also called "Rahmaan"(The Most Merciful) and there is no plural of this word also.The last two verses of surah No.17 "Bani Israel"(The Children of Israel) tell as under:
"Say,'Call upon Allah,or call upon Rahmaan: by whatever name you call upon Him,(it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.Neither speak your prayer aloud,nor speak it in a low tone,but seek a middle course between.Say,Praise be to Allah(God Almighty),Who begets no son,and has no partner in (His) dominion:nor (needs) He any to protect Him from humiliation:Yea, magnify Him for His Greatness and Glory !"
In verse No.82 of surah viz chapter No.5 God Almighty(Allah) Admires the Christians and Says,"Nearest among them in love to the Believers will you find those who say,"We are Christians": because amongst them,there are men devoted to learning,and men who have renounced the world,and they are not arrogant."
In verse No.40 of surah(chapter) No.22 God Almighty Says , " If God did not repel the aggression of some people by means of others , cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques , wherein the name of God is much invoked , would surely be destroyed. God will surely help him who helps His cause ---- God is indeed powerful and mighty."
GOD ALMIGHTY(ALLAH) Sees the Faith of inner heart and Says in verse No.62 of surah No.2: "Those who believe and those who follow the Jewish(scriptures) and the Christians and the Sabians,any who believe in GOD ALMIGHTY(ALLAH) and the Last Day,and work righteousness,shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear,nor shall they grieve."

Those who are in doubt about existence of GOD,an unseen GOD, should consider their own existence, before birth, birth, life in this world, death and after death. Our mortal eyes are not able to see everything.
For example,soul or spirit which can't be denied even by an atheist,then what about Creator of soul or spirit?
Can we create a thing just like our earth or even stop it from moving?
Can we control earth quake and the system of rain?
Can we prevent death forever?
Answers to these questions prove the existence of GOD ALMIGHTY Who can't be defined and understood with an example in this world.

Religion is one and the same from the very beginning. However, it is rectified and completed by GOD ALMIGHTY through a series of Messengers (prophets).
In the Old Testament in Isaiah 28:10-11 it is mentioned:
"For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, and there a little. For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to His people."
In the last Book of GOD ALMIGHTY the first revealed word is "Iqra" which means "Read" in surah Al-Alaq (surah No.96,verses 1 to 5). As the Prophet was illiterate, he replied "I can't read". This is also mentioned in the Old Testament (Isaiah 29:12) "And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, read this, I pray thee and he saith, I am not learned."
It is proved that the true teachings of all the books of GOD are the same. Except the last book, only translations are available which can be understood with the help of the last book and thus following true teachings of all the prophets can bring peace to the world.
