In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

 

Why is there a prohibition for a widow or divorced woman for a while to remarry in the Quran?

Isn't that cruel?

 All commands in the Quran are conformed to wisdom and human beings can of course get access to some of their reasons.

Professor Robert Ghilhem, the dean of Albert Ainstan university which belongs to Jewish and is specialist in Genetic science, says that sperms contain 62 proteins which are different from person to person, just as exclusive as fingerprints. Sperms are just like a chip (integrated circuit) and everyone carries his own. Woman's body carries a complete computer inside that records the chips of the man with whom she had sex. If this woman immediately started having sex with some one else or if the computer received many different chips, it would be like the computer had become infected with viruses and the woman would experience different hormonic and psychic disorders.

The professor has proven from a scientific point of view that the first menstruation period after divorce can emit 32-35 percent of sperms, second period 67-72 percent, and the third one would emit 99.9% of sperms, making the womb clean and ready for new sperms and making the computer prepared for welcoming the new chips without any harm for the woman's body.

It may not be the only reason for this Quranic verdict and some other resaons can be found.

Therefore, after-divorce period of time should be long enough so that all sperm effects can get eliminated considering the fact that the grief can cause the man's effect to last longer; that's why she needs the period of time Allah has mentioned (4 months and 10 days) in Quran so that all manhood effects can get deactivated.

Footnote:

Professor Robert Ghilhem, the dean of Albert Ainstion university which belongs to Jewish and is specialist in Genetic science, converted to Islam and announced the only reason for it officially:

Reconition and discovery of a scientific fact and understanding the uniqueness of the  Quran regarding the limitation of divorce period for women

Question 25 - Is there anything about gravity in Quran?

Answer:

Some interpreters and thinkers believe that Quran mentions to gravity in some cases:
اللّهُ الَّذِی رَفَعَ السَّمَاوَاتِ بِغَیْرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوْنَهَا
It is Allah who raised the heavens without pillars that you see. (AL RAD 13)
خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ بِغَیْرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوْنَهَا
He created the heavens without pillars.(LUQMAN10)
Limiting (عمد) to (ترونها) is because of this matter that sky doesn’t have visible pillars and it means that there are some pillars but they are disappeared….this is delicate expression which shows  gravity and repulsive force that is like a strong pillar holds planets. There is a Hadith from Imam Reza that proves this matter: Hussein ibn Khalid asks Imam Reza about the interpretation of this verse of Quran:
وَالسَّمَاء ذَاتِ الْحُبُکِ
By the heaven with its passages, (ADH-DHARIYAT 7)
He answered: This sky has some ways to the earth. Hussein ibn Khalid said:
I told him how there are some ways but Allah says the skies don’t have any pillars.
“But Allah says there are no visible pillars” Imam answered.
“Yes “I said.
“So, there are some pillars but you can’t see” Imam continued (Borhan interpretation v2p278) then Imam says some Quran verses and Hadith against Batlamyus astronomical ideas.

Question 24 - Are there any scientific news about man creation and fetus life cycle in Quran?

Answer:

Don’t forget Quran verses belong several years ago and science had many mistakes and negligence about fetus life in those days. Quran mentions three fundamental subjects about fetus life:

یَا أَیُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاکُم مِّن ذَکَرٍ وَأُنثَى

1.      People, we have created you from a male and a female, (AL-HUJRAAT13).

2.      Quran categorized fetus life steps with elegance and accuracy which is coincident with modern scientist researches.

 وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِینٍ ﴿12﴾ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِی قَرَارٍ مَّکِینٍ ﴿13﴾ ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَکَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ فَتَبَارَکَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِینَ ﴿14﴾

We created the human from an essence of clay:  then we made him, a drop, in a secure receptacle (the womb).  Then we created of the drop, a clot (of congealed blood) and we created the clot into bite size tissue, then we created the bite size tissue into bones, then we clothed bones with flesh, and then produced it another creation. Blessed is Allah, the best of creators! ( AL-MUMENOON12-14)

3.      Quran introduces Divine soul  as main criteria of man creation:

فَإِذَا سَوَّیْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِیهِ مِن رُّوحِی فَقَعُواْ لَهُ سَاجِدِینَ

When I have shaped him and ran my created soul in him fall down prostrating towards him'. (AL-HIJR 29) .In addition, Quran never prohibits mankind from searching about creation but orders him to do it:

فَلْیَنظُرِ الْإِنسَانُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ  خُلِقَ مِن مَّاء دَافِقٍ یَخْرُجُ مِن بَیْنِ الصُّلْبِ وَالتَّرَائِبِ إِنَّهُ عَلَى رَجْعِهِ لَقَادِرٌ

Let the human reflect of what he is created. He was created from ejaculated water. That issues from between the loins and the ribs. Surely, he is able to bring him back,

There are more than 60 verses about creation in Quran that each of them reveals a secret from creation secrets. for more details you can refer to expressing general science in Quran  written by Seyed Abolghasem Khoei , searching in scientific miracle in Quran  written by  Muhammad Ali Rezai Esfahani and miracle in Quran verses in man creation  written by Muhammad Fayaz.

Question 23 - Does the holy Qur’an have any scientific information about the creation of the universe?

Answer:

The holy Qur’an has referred to the creation of the universe in several verses. Cosmologists have some scientific theories about the formation of the universe; and some scholars and thinkers have tried to prove the scientific miracle of the holy Qur’an by showing how these scientific findings are similar to the Qur’anic verses. The following are only some of the verses which are related to this issue and are studied by commentary writers and experts:

“Then turned He to the heaven when it was smoke…” (The holy Qur’an, 41:11)
“Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?” (The holy Qur’an, 21: 30)

Astrology has proved that at the beginning of creation, celestial bodies were in the form of smoke and stuck together. Then gradually because of severe pressure, the gasses turned into solid. “This scientific fact was first stated about two centuries ago by Laplace, the famous French mathematician and astronomer. Today modern astronomy has proved the validity of Laplace’s scientific theory.”  (Javad Eftekharian, Qur’an va Olume Rooz (Qur’an and Modern Sciences), p. 235).

“If we take the Sun and its subproduct the Earth as an example (the only one accessible to us), science informs us that their formation occurred by a process of condensation of the primary nebula and then
their separation. This is exactly what the Qur'an expresses very clearly when it refers to the processes that produced a fusion and subsequent separation starting from a celestial 'smoke'. Hence there is complete correspondence between the facts of the Qur'an and the facts of science.” (Dr. Maurice Buccaile, The Bible, the Qur’an and Science (The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge)

Question 22 - How is the Status of Women in Islam?

Answer:
A) According to Islam and holy Quran's ideology woman and men are the same in humanistic and spiritual aspects. Because:
1. In Quran's‎ point of view being man or woman is not the main goal in creation. What was he not an ejaculated drop (of sperm)? (37) Then he was a clot of blood, and then he created and formed him (38) and made from him two kinds, male and female. (39). (AL-QIYAMA)
2. Quran's addressee is mankind (both men and women). The merciful (1) has taught the Quran. (2) He created the human (3) and taught him its pronunciation (4). (AR-RAHMAN)
3. Women and men are the same in achieving Devine and humanistic statuses. For whosoever does a righteous deed, be they believing men or women, we shall recompense them with their wage according to the best of their deeds.( AN-NAHL 97).

B) But, in spite of having the same divine spirit, they are created for unique duties in this mortal world.
Consequently, Man and woman are complementary and their unity causes permanency and reservation in existence.( For more details  refer to Woman in the Mirror of Divine Beauty and Divine Glory by Ayatullah Javadi Amoli and the book - Woman And Her Rights In Islam” by Allama Murtaza Mutahhari).
The prophet Mohammad who is the greatest teacher for mankind and lived in the era that women did not have any rights, said: Seeking knowledge is incumbent upon every Muslim, male and female.

Question 21 - Why do Muslims call their religious book (Quran) a miracle?

Answer:

1. Prophet of Islam was illiterate, whereas, the Holy Book was full of complicated philosophical and logical instructions, scientific facts, and the news of the previous Holy Books which indicates that Quran is not the word of human being but an eternal and divine miracle. God has referred to Prophet Muhammad as illiterate several times in Quran:

"And you did not recite before it any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand. Otherwise the falsifiers would have had [cause for] doubt."  (48- Al-Ankabout)(Surah 29)
2. Complete coherence among the verses (from the beginning till the end) whereas being revealed gradually over 23 years in different situations (ward, peace, failure, victory, and etc.) confirms that This Book is not written by man. As the Quran states:
"Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction."     (82-An-Nisa)(Surah 4)
3. Miracle on legislation: Quran attention to legislation in confirmed and indefectible rights as well as equality in legislation is another aspect of its miraculousnees which makes the Holy Quran unique and eternal. For instance, when Quran expresses the attributes of the descent servants it verbalizes:
"And [they are] those who, when they spend, do so not excessively or sparingly but are ever, between that, [justly] moderate." (67-Al-Furghan)(Surah 25)
4. Many sibylline news…
5. Stories of the previous Prophets…
6. Mysteries of creation( living creatures having couple and being pair, movement of the earth, the earth being circle, insemination, unknown continents, revolution of the moon in distinctive orbit, and etc.
7. Asking the opponents of Quran to bring a chapter (Surah), 10 chapters, or even a whole book like Quran.
8. If you wish to study more about it you can refer to the book “Quran Science” written by Ayatollah Ma’refat, “Al-Etghan” by Siyooti, or “expressing Science and general matters in Quran” by Ayatollah Khoyee.

Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) said:
God The Best would help Islam with men who are not Moslems.(Nahjol Fasahe, p. 46, hadith 293)

These are the comments of a new Christian to the ignorant people about Islam at a week after Ayatollah Khamenei wrote a letter to the Western youth. (2015/1/2)

I do know this, in 1976 I was in prison for dealing drugs and I had a very real experience based on Christianity and it changed me. I was raised Catholic and saw through that and by the time I joined the US Air Force at 17 I never darkened the doorstep of any church again. In the 60's and early 70's my only comment on religion was that God is dead and I lived accordingly. I went to prison at 32 years old. You know, I am sure, that religion is not a building, or a preacher, or denomination. It is a personal thing that occurs in your heart and it changed my heart. When I got out I never went back to the old ways and old friends and the last half of my life has been superior to the first. I was a high school drop out with a felony prison record and still achieved material things that I never dreamed possible as well as a spiritual life I never knew. I can only tie the one to the other.
In the last 39 years I have found no failure in scriptures, only in people. The God of the bible is beyond human comprehension.

-----------------------------
The whole story is much too long to post but in essence it started with a sarcastic prayer. There are a lot of people who do jail house ministries and most inmates just ignore them most of the time. There was one couple, Betty and Fred Engle, that when they were coming many of the guys would get cleaned up as best they could and there was real pressure for those that were not interested in what they had to say to shut up and be respectful while they were there. Their base message was, God loves you no matter what and He wants to have a relationship with you. My prayer was "Hey, if you are really out there I am ready to listen." That started a chain of things that proved to me that He was out there and He listened. I retired from a job with a large Japanese company that I held for 26 years and made really good money from. You need a 4 year degree if you want that job today and I am a high school dropout with a felony prison record. I did not add Him to the error of my ways but I do credit Him with the correction of the error of my ways and the success of the last half of my life.

________________________________________

Only if the belief causes the changes that it professes. I believe from personal experience but I don't try to cram that down anyone's
throat. I don't call names or insult those that don't believe as we all have a free will to choose our own path so in fact, no matter which path we choose, each is as valid as the other to the person that made that choice.

________________________________________

So you blame the religion because of the evil actions that come from a man's heart? I have no problem with condemning individuals who do not do what they profess to believe but making religion responsible for individual actions seems to be a stretch.

---------------------------
In the pure sense Judaism exists in the Old Testament and Christianity in the new so the bible is the text book. Now you have to take that on faith and apply what it says and see if that works for YOU personally. It will not work on a group or an organization as it is a deal between you and God alone and you only have control over you and only you can try and emulate Jesus starting in your own heart. I am a conservative Christian and believe that the bible says exactly what we need to know and that understanding can increase as we grow but it is not an … I like this part but I don't like that part book.


----------------------------
So does the existence of crazy Christian clerics justify the existence of crazy Muslim clerics? There are over a billion Catholics and over a billion Muslims and what was in the Catholic church has changed. What prevents the Muslims from changing also? One church lives in modern times and the other wants to live in the 7th century.


------------------------------
First off, I do not know that Islam causes terrorism. I only know that where Islam exists terrorism seems to follow. Did Christianity cause the KKK? There were a lot of southern preachers that were OK with the KKK. That is why I centered on crazy clerics. If religious authority does nor condemn it and some clerics endorse it then it seems to spring from the religion when it in fact is caused by crazy clerics who are not condemned by the mainstream clerics. Most of the wrongs that the US commits are caused by the idea that if you don't agree with policy, that comes down from the top, you are not a team player and you and your ideas need to be banished. Also look to the money men that finance the DNC and RNC and help form this team player concept. If you don't vote our way then you could lose financing in the next election. Blindly arming the rebels in Afghanistan when Russia occupied the country is a perfect example. If they are fighting and killing Russians they must be our friends which was very very wrong.
________________________________________

Henry, you seem to have a lot of pent up anger at religion but you have to realize that all the wrongs done in the name of religion have been caused by people who are evil and used religion as a cover for what they did, from popes to priests and ministers and rabbis to individual people. The scriptures do not condone what they did and what some continue to do today. What you are saying about religion is what the blacks say about cops. That if you have some bad cops then it makes all cops bad.

-------------------------
Our creator always was and always will be and was the creator of everything else. He knew how to create a universe and we are still
trying to figure out how He did that. I suspect that just perhaps I might possess just a smidgen more intelligence than you do! 


---------------------------
Not a problem as we all have our reasons for unbelief or believing.

Question 20: what is the difference between Islam viewpoint toward human with
other thoughts and viewpoints?

Answer:

In Islamic viewpoint about human being is a two-dimensional being;
physical and spiritual. The spiritual side which is the same as
humanity never dies. And the goal of Islam and Quran teachings is the
happiness (eudemonism) and peace of this dimension.
The human spirit is mentioned several times in the Holy Quran:
And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created]
soul, then fall down to him in prostration." (Al-Hijr 29)(Surah 16)
The Holy Quran besides referring to the divine spirit of man; declares
it as a dignity and mastery of man over other creatures and also the
reason of angels prostrating him. But unfortunately, other thoughts
has confined human being and his desires to the mortal man. So, today,
the man is deprived of human spiritual delight besides the perfection
following it while Islam has honored both the human dimension and has
a plan for both so that man has benefited from both the material world
and the world of meaning.
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH): “The one is better from among you who does
not lose the life after death for his material life and vice versa and
the one who is not a burden to people. (Nahj-ul-Fasaaha P: 275)
He also mentioned: the world is sweet and verdurous and God has placed
you in it to see what you do. (Nahj-ul-Fasaaha P: 276)

Question 18: What were the first words God revealed to Prophet Mohammad(PBUH)?

Answer:

The first words of God with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):

اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّکَ الَّذِی خَلَقَ

خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ

اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّکَ الْأَکْرَمُ

الَّذِی عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ

عَلَّمَ الْإِنسَانَ مَا لَمْ یَعْلَمْ

(سوره العلق، آیات 1-5)
Read in the Name of your Lord Who created - He created man from a clot
- Read and your Lord is Most Honorable - Who taught (to write) with
the pen - Taught man what he knew not - (Al-Alagh 1-5) (Surah 96)


After mentioning in these verses the state of creator-hood, divinity,
and creating the best creation in the world, human, God has pointed to
man teaching with pen and the crucial role of knowledge in his life.
Could its reason be anything but the effort of Islam for learning and
thinking?
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) stated: اطلبوا العلم من المهد الی اللحد
Seek knowledge from cradle to grave.
Also, he mentioned: العلم حیاة الاسلام و عماد الایمان .
Knowledge is the life of Islam and the pillars of faith.
(Nahj-ul-Fesaaha P: 418 tradition no. 4107)
The Holy Quran in most of the verses invites man to thinking about
sky, stars, strange events happening among them, the strong order
directing and managing them, and mediating on earth, seas, and
mountain creation, and etc. as well as reflecting on the surprising
creation of plants plus the life order exists among them, and creation
of man himself besides the mysteries behind his body structure.
The holy book, also, calls man to learning physical science,
mathematics, philosophy, literary arts, and finally all the sciences
available to human thought only if their learning is in favor of human
being and prosperity and happiness of their society.
Yes, the Holy Quran invites man to these sciences in case they act as
a guide toward truth and include the true worldview with the
cornerstone of theology within themselves. Otherwise the science which
occupies man by himself and prevents him from learning about truth is
equal to ignorance in Quran lexicon. Prophet Mohammad stated that
there are three things no one (being Muslim or non-Muslim) should
leave:
1. Doing good to parents
2. Fulfilling the promise
3. Faithful to the trust
(Nahj-ul-Fasaaha, page 115)
He also mentioned: The more Muslim is the one among you whose morality is the best and understanding of the religion is deeper.

 Question 19: Why is the Koran introduced as the final Book, and Islam as the final religion? How could the needs of the modern man be achieved through the laws and rules of 1400 years ago?

Answer:

“… the nature made by Allah in which He has made human beings; there is no altering of Allah’s creation…” (The Koran: 30:30)

The Holy Koran has mentioned many matters and discussed lots of issues. It talks about theology and rational knowledge, about Creation and Resurrection, metaphysics, the soul, angles and jinn and Satan. It points to the Earth and other planets, to the history of the past people, the prophets and their followers. Sometimes, it brings proverbs, proofs and reasoning, and sometimes enters the moral issues and explains family rights. Once it talks about the seat of government, social order and rules of war; and puts forward lines for worship, treaties, political and economic issues, and canonizes marriage, inheritance, lawful punishments and so on. In all these cases it introduces the best and most interesting realities to human being; realities which are not falsifiable and cannot be refuted by any one. This is what is not essentially possible for human beings to canonize whether totally or partly. This law must be permanent, perfect and above reproach. Hence we see that a short while after a book on any of theoretical sciences is written, many of its theories get disproved, for the more theoretical sciences are discussed and studied, more truths are discovered and the invalidity of the past theories becomes more obvious.
