God be glorified, The Lord of the heavens, The Lord of the earth, The Lord of the universe
Do you wish to live in certainty?
What is life?
Many people are so busy with living their lives in such a way that they can’t even realize or understand the true meaning of it. Their preoccupation is one of the main reasons why they can’t connect the dots when it comes to the signs that are been given. When someone choses to live his life through wishful thinking and personal opinions, it is very clear that it is only based on conjecture; there is no certainty about anything that person feels, thinks , says and does about his life on earth and the Hereafter (if there is any belief in the hereafter).
Many people find this way of life liberating and enjoyable. But unfortunately soon or later they will find out the inevitable truth that they will be held for account for anything they have ever felt, thought, said and acted upon in this temporary world. All the signs that they were given and were heedless of, will be the reason for living in misery for eternity. Signs
You may wonder what these signs are, that are being referred to and what kind of connection there needs to be made. The signs are everything and everywhere, close and far, on earth and outer space, they can be seen and unseen, in our thoughts, in our hearts, in our souls. All these signs is what the majority of people calls ‘life’. We all have the same life, but in various versions. The variety can be seen in appearances, prosperity, families, friends, work, properties etc. and in variety of consciousness, abilities, personalities and preference etc.
These signs could and should be connected with the connection with the one and only God Almighty. This connection can only be based on certainty by linking our daily lives with the divine guidance through the words of Our Creator.Divine guidance
The Scriptures of God are the ones that contain the message to mankind; that there is only one God. God of the universe: the seven heavens and the earth and everything that is in between. And the extremely important message of our real purpose of life; to obey and submit to God alone, and not anyone or anything else, to reach our final destiny in certainty. It shows the two paths of life; you either win or you lose. And that once you lose, you will lose forever and there will be no more chance to do better. No more chance to choose the path God has been given and showing you, through the signs; life!
The Scriptures have detailed examples, allegories, commands, warnings and good news as a true guidance for anyone who seeks God as their only Master.
This means that we all go through lives in different ways with different signs to be tested in order to expose the true qualities and convictions of every person to distinguish the truly guided ones from the ones who don’t seek for God as their only Lord and Master, the way they should have done.Prophets and messengers
It is out of God’s mercy and grace that he send down his revelations to certain people that are prophets and messengers, who are the ones that are commanded to spread the message of God by giving good tidings to the ones who are on the right path and help them come closer to God. They also are commanded to give warning to the ones who are totally heedless or ignorant about the message and to remind them of past - and to warn them about near and futuristic retributions as a consequence of their ignorance and their committed evil works. So that they may turn back to God and to become righteous. But many communities got annihilated afterwards, as they only continued in their transgressions and disbelief.Retributions and annihilations
The warnings of retributions and annihilations are the extreme natural events that happen in the whole universe and are seen and felt on earth. These events happen in various places, forms and time. The signs are not only been given through nature, they are seen in every aspect of this world; economy, politics, finance, technology , military and even on social grounds. However this documents will contain the connection between signs of nature and divine guidance (i.a.warnings) through God’s Scriptures.
Extreme nature events
Anyone who has been following the extreme changes in the past years and most importantly past months, weeks, days and even hours in our universe, including this planet, should come to realize that there is much more behind it than just ‘another’ evolution of nature. Below you will find a short enumeration of these extreme events.
-Major and historic flooding
-Extreme temperature changes
-Increased number of sinkholes
-Increased volcanic eruptions
-Huge amount of fireballs
-Comet ISON and its debris field
-Changes in different planet orbits
-Sun eruption It is just the beginning, take heed and change your ways
All these extreme past events are merely signs and small compared to what the near future will bring us. And it is very important to keep in mind that we should not be heedless and ignorant when a messenger of God comes to us and recites to us God’s verses from the existing Scriptures, in order to warn us of great tribulations and inviting us to follow him on the right path towards God, for our lives may be coming to an end soon! And no one is given another chance, once this worldly death has come.
Take this moment right here to improve your lives and come closer to God, through certainty, not through conjecture based on wishful thinking and personal opinions. Ask God for help and be a sincere, righteous person and protect yourself from falling into transgression and disbelief.
Since God promises forgiveness and a great recompense to the true believers, who are seeking for God through day and night, lead a righteous life and submit to Him alone. And they who follow His guidance will have no fear, nor will they grieve. These events are good news for the true believers, as they are signs that God’s Kingdom is near.Sufficient warnings God is given us through His Scriptures
[7:185] Have they not looked ...at the dominion of the heavens and the earth
,... and all the things GOD has created? Does it ever occur to them that the end of their life may be near? Which Hadith, beside this, do they believe in?
[41:53] We will show them our proofs in the horizons, and within themselves, until they realize that this is the truth. Is your Lord not sufficient as a witness of all things?
Luke 21 25 “And there will be SIGNS...in the sun,... in the moon..., and in the stars...; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea ...and the waves
26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
20:113 We thus revealed it, an Arabic Quran, and we cited in it ...all kinds of prophecies, that they may be saved, ...or it may cause them to take heed.
Acts 2:19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above ...and signs on the earth below..., blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;
Acts 2:20 the sun shall be turned to darkness ...and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.
Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’Ignoring the signs and rejecting the messenger
[40:81] He thus shows you His proofs. Which of GOD's proofs can you deny?
[40:82] Have they not roamed the earth and noted the consequences for those who preceded them? They used to be greater in number, greater in power, and possessed a greater legacy on earth. Yet, all their achievements did not help them in the least.
[40:83] When their messengers went to them with clear proofs, they rejoiced in the knowledge they had inherited, and the very things they ridiculed were the cause of their fall.
[40:84] Subsequently, when they saw our retribution they said, "Now we believe in GOD ALONE, and we now disbelieve in the idol worship that we used to practice."
[40:85] Their belief then could not help them in the least, once they saw our retribution. Such is GOD's system that has been established to deal with His creatures; the disbelievers are always doomed.
Examples, thus lessons, of the consequences after rejecting prophets and messengers from the past
[29:39] Also Qaaroon, Pharaoh, and Hamaan; Moses went to them with clear signs. But they continued to commit tyranny on earth. Consequently, they could not evade (the retribution).
[29:40] All those disbelievers were doomed as a consequence of their sins.
Some of them we annihilated by violent winds, some were annihilated by the quake, some we caused the earth to swallow, and some we drowned. GOD is not the One who wronged them; it is they who wronged their own souls.
[54:9] The people of Noah disbelieved before... them.... They disbelieved our servant and said, "Crazy!" He was persecuted.
[54:10] He implored his Lord, "I am oppressed; grant me victory."
[54:11] We then opened the gates of the sky, pouring water.
[54:12] And we caused springs to gush out of the earth. The waters met to effect a predetermined decision. [54:13] We carried him on a watercraft made of logs and ropes.
[54:14] It ran under our watchful eyes; a reward for one who was rejected. ...
[54:15] We have set it up as a lesson.(God's retribution with Noah) Does any of you wish to learn?
[54:16] How terrible was My retribution after the warnings!
[54:17] We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn? ...
[54:18] `Aad disbelieved. Consequently, how terrible was My retribution after the warnings.
[54:19] We sent upon them violent winds, on a day of continuous misery.
[54:20] It tossed the people around as if they were decayed palm tree trunks. ...
[54:21] How terrible was My retribution after the warnings!
[54:22] We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?
[54:23] Thamoud rejected the warnings.
[54:24] They said, "Shall we follow one of us; a human being? We will then go astray, then end up in Hell. [54:25] "Did the message come down to him, instead of us? He is a flagrant liar."
[54:26] They will find out tomorrow who the flagrant liar is.
[54:27] We are sending the camel as a test for them. Watch them and be patient.
[54:28] Inform them that the water shall be divided among them; (the camel) shall be allowed to drink on her designated day.
[54:29] But they persuaded their friend to kill (the camel), and he obliged.
[54:30] Consequently, how terrible was My retribution! They have been warned.
[54:31] We sent upon them one blow, whereupon they became like harvested hay.
[54:32] We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn? ...
[54:33] The people of Lot rejected the warnings.
[54:34] We showered them with rocks. Only Lot's family was saved at dawn.
[54:35] We blessed him and his family; we thus reward the appreciative.
[54:36] He warned them about our requital, but they ridiculed the warnings.
[54:37] They negotiated with him about his guests; we blinded them. Suffer My retribution; you have been warned.
[54:38] Early the next morning, a devastating retribution struck them. ...
[54:39] Suffer My retribution; you have been warned.
[54:40] We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn? ...
[54:41] Pharaoh's people were warned.
[54:42] They rejected all our signs. Consequently, we requited them as an Almighty, Omnipotent should. Recognize messengers through the message they come with; they invite you to the path towards God alone!
[28:59] For your Lord never annihilates any community without sending a messenger i
n the midst thereof, to recite our revelations to them. We never annihilate any community, unless its people are wicked.
[7:61] He said, "O my people, I am not astray; I am a messenger from the Lord of the universe.
[7:62] "I deliver to you the messages of my Lord, and I advise you, and... I know from GOD what you do not know.
[7:63] "Is it too much of a wonder that a reminder should come to you from your Lord, through a man like you, to warn you, and to lead you to righteousness, that you may attain mercy?"
[7:75] The arrogant leaders among his people said to the common people who believed, "How do you know that Saaleh is sent by his Lord?" ...They said, ..."The message he brought has made us believers."...
[7:85] To Midyan we sent their brother Shu`aib. He said, "O my people, worship GOD; you have no other god beside Him. Proof has come to you from your Lord…
[7:93] He turned away from them, saying, "O my people, ...I have delivered to you the messages of my Lord, ...and I have advised you. How can I grieve over disbelieving people."
Are we taking heed, are we doing any better than previous wicked communities?
[54:43] Are your disbelievers better than those disbelievers? Have you been absolved by the scripture? [54:44] Perhaps they think, "We will be the winners."
[54:45] All of them will be defeated; they will turn around and flee.
[54:46] The Hour is awaiting them, and the Hour is far worse and more painful.
[54:47] Certainly, the guilty are astray, and will end up in Hell.
[54:48] They will be dragged into the hellfire, forcibly. Suffer the agony of retribution.
[54:49] Everything we created is precisely measured.
[54:50] Our commands are done within the blink of an eye.
[54:51] We annihilated your counterparts. Does any of you wish to learn?
[21:6] We never annihilated a believing community in the past. Are these people believers?
[21:11] Many a community we terminated because of their transgression, and we substituted other people in their place. ...
[10:96] Surely, those condemned by a decree from your Lord cannot believe.
[10:97] No matter what kind of proof you show them, (they cannot believe), until they see the painful retribution.
[42:14] Ironically, they broke up into sects only after the knowledge had come to them, due to jealousy and resentment among themselves. If it were not for a predetermined decision from your Lord to respite them for a definite interim, they would have been judged immediately. ...Indeed, the later generations who inherited the scripture are full of doubts.
[15:90] We will deal with the dividers. [15:91] They accept the Quran ...only partially. ...
Life is temporary , do not live in transgression and disbelief!
2:266 Does any of you wish ... to own a garden of palm trees and grapes, with flowing streams and generous crops, then, ...just as he grows old, and while his children are still dependent on him, ... a holocaust strikes and burns up his garden? ...GOD thus clarifies the revelations for you, that you may reflect.
[10:24] The analogy of this worldly life is like this: we send down water from the sky to produce with it all kinds of plants from the earth, and to provide food for the people and the animals. Then, just as the earth is perfectly adorned, and its people think that they are in control thereof, our judgment comes by night or by day, leaving it completely barren, as if nothing existed the previous day. ...We thus explain the revelations for people who reflect.
[7:4] Many a community we annihilated; they incurred our retribution while... they were asleep, or ...wide awake.
[7:5] Their utterance when our retribution came to them was: "Indeed, we have been transgressors."
[7:6] We will certainly question... those who received the message..., and we will question the messengers. [7:7] We will inform them authoritatively, for we were never absent.
[7:34] For each community.., there is a predetermined life span. ..Once their interim comes to an end, they cannot delay it by one hour, nor advance it.
[7:35] O children of Adam, when messengers come to you from among you, and... recite My revelations to ...you, those who take heed and lead a righteous life,... will have nothing to fear.
.., nor will they grieve.
[7:36] As for those who reject our revelations, and are too arrogant to uphold them, they have incurred Hell, wherein they abide forever. Live in certainty by connecting everything in life with God’s words.
[7:52] We have given them a scripture that is fully detailed, with knowledge, guidance, and mercy for the people who believe.
[7:53] ...Are they waiting until all (prophecies) are fulfilled?
...The day such fulfillment comes to pass, ...those who disregarded it.
.. in the past will say, "The messengers of our Lord have brought the truth. ...Are there any intercessors to intercede on our behalf? Would you send us back, so that we change our behavior, and do better works than what we did?" They have lost their souls, and their own innovations have caused their doom. Important lesson!
[7:96] Had the people of those communities believed and turned righteous, we would have showered them with blessings from the heaven and the earth. Since they decided to disbelieve, we punished them for what they earned.
[7:97] did the people of... The present communities ...guarantee that our retribution will not come to them... In the night as they sleep?
[7:98] did the people of ...today's communities... Guarantee that our retribution will not come to them ...in the daytime while they play?
[7:185] have they not looked ...at the dominion of the heavens and the earth,
and ...all the things god has created? Does it ever occur to them that the end of their life may be near? Which hadith, beside this, do they believe in?
[10:101] Say, "Look at all the signs in the heavens and the earth." All the proofs ...and all the warnings... can never help people who decided to disbelieve.
[10:102] Can they expect other than the fate of their counterparts in the past? Say, "Just wait, and, along with you, I am also waiting."
[12:105] So many proofs... in the heavens and the earth are given to them..., but they pass by them, heedlessly!
[44:38] We did not create the heavens and the earth, and ...everything between them
, just to play. [44:39] We created them for a specific purpose, but most of them do not know
[53:49] He is THE LORD OF THE GALAXIES.
[53:50] He is the One who annihilated ancient `Aad.
[53:51] And wiped out Thamoud.
[53:52] Also the people of Noah before that; they were evil transgressors.
[53:53] The evil communities ...were the lowliest.
[53:54] Consequently, they utterly ...vanished. ...
[53:55] Which of your Lord's marvels can you deny?
[53:56]This is a ...warning ...like the ... older ones...
[53:57] The inevitable is imminent.
[53:58] None beside GOD can relieve it.
[53:59] Are you questioning this matter?
[53:60] Are you laughing, instead of crying?
[53:61] Are you insisting on your ways?
Good news for the believers; these are only signs for the tribulations and the coming of the Son of Man in God’s Kingdom. TRUE submission to GOD will dominate!
Malachi 4: 1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
Matthew 24: 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
[42:13] He decreed for you the same religion decreed for Noah, and what we inspired to you, and what we decreed for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: "You shall uphold this one religion, and do not divide it." The idol worshipers will greatly resent what you invite them to do. God redeems to Himself whomever He wills; He guides to Himself only those who totally submit.
[9:33]He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, and will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.
[48:28] He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it prevail over all other religions. God suffices as a witness.
[110:1] When triumph comes from God, and victory.
[110:2] You will see the people embracing God's religion in throngs.
[110:3] You shall glorify and praise your Lord, and implore Him for forgiveness. He is the Redeemer.
Peace be upon you and may God help and guide you to find the Truth !
