Did he?
In 539 B.C., the armies of Cyrus the Great, the first king of ancient Persia, conquered the city of Babylon. But it was his next actions that marked a major advance for Man. He freed the slaves, declared that all people had the right to choose their own religion, and established racial equality. These and other decrees were recorded on a baked-clay cylinder in the Akkadian language with cuneiform script.

Known today as the Cyrus Cylinder, this ancient record has now been recognized as the world’s first charter of human rights. It is translated into all six official languages of the United Nations and its provisions parallel the first four Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

From Babylon, the idea of human rights spread quickly to India, Greece and eventually Rome. There the concept of “natural law” arose, in observation of the fact that people tended to follow certain unwritten laws in the course of life, and Roman law was based on rational ideas derived from the nature of things.

Documents asserting individual rights, such as the Magna Carta (1215), the Petition of Right (1628), the US Constitution (1787), the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789), and the US Bill of Rights (1791) are the written precursors to many of today’s human rights documents.

I appreciate your mentioning of Cyrus the Great- the Great Persian Prophet of the One-True-God, a Zoroastrian.
He was never an Atheist or Agnostic.

All Ethics, Morality and Spirituality comes from Religion; none from Atheism.

“And atheists, as far as I can tell, are generally interested in free speech, discovering truth from a scientific perspective, and “live and let live” freedom.” Unquote

If Atheists want free speech, freedom of religion; and that scientific perspective is upheld; peaceful co-existence; human rights then I think they should have no trouble with Quran/Islam/Muhammad.

Are Atheists morons? I don’t say that they are

“By trying to demonstrate an untenable position of the opposing belief you seem to think that through a process of elimination the ”Last Man Standing” as it were, will be Christianity.”

But that is what Atheists are also doing exactly; by simply proving “Christianity” as false; they think Atheism/Materialism will prove to be true; never giving any evidence, which the atheist demand of others, that the “one true God does not exist”.

There is no limit to the nearness to the one true God

July 22, 2013

Mirza Bashir Ahmad, an able son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad- the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi has written a good note on the above topic, I want that the viewers enjoy it reading:

 Mirza Bashir Ahmad said:

“Reason does not take us beyond this level, for there are cast iron gates guarded by angels. Until human reason gets the passport to enter God’s court, it cannot pass through these gates.

We cannot pass through these steel gates until God grants us special vision. But when we do get it, all the veils are torn apart and the sight which minutes ago was rebounding off the steel door, now starts falling straight upon the bright countenance of the Creator.

The closer a man gets to his Lord the clearer his vision becomes, and so does his knowledge and understanding of God. There is no limit to this nearness and no end to this knowledge and understanding, for God Himself is Limitless and knowledge about Him cannot be limited.

This is why along with every common man, Muhammad (sa), the Seal of the Prophets, also prays:

‘O my Lord, increase me in knowledge’. (Ta Ha 20:115)

And yet he is the one whom God made to say:

‘I am the best of all the children of Adam, but I do not take pride in it’; as God did say of His Prophet: ‘This servant of Ours came close to Us, and came so close that he lost himself in Us’. (al-Najm 53:9-10)”

Pages 40-41

Two levels of belief in God: “There should be a God”: “There is God”

Science is not designed to tackle everything in life

July 20, 2013

I commented on the blog < http://agnophilo.wordpress.com/2013/07/17/15-questions-for-evolutionists-response/#comments> and then a discussion ensued; the same is given here-under for the viewers of this blog.

 

  1. paarsurrey says:

    Science is not designed to tackle everything in life; scientific method is valid only for the things physical and spiritual; beyond that it is just blind.

    The one true God is neither physical nor spiritual; He is attributive.

  2. Thanks for putting this together. It really covers a lot of information without getting very complicated.

    I think scientists will eventually be able to create complex organisms from elements (inorganic material). I can’t predict how of course. I am just fairly sure that the creator created by natural laws and that He always will work in ways that make Him thus a mysterious supernatural force that is undetectable using what we have to work with to “see” and “hear” Him.

Christianity and Islam v Atheism and Agnosticism

July 13, 2013

Our entire civilization is based on the ‘religious’ doctrines ad ideals: that are essentially based on the enslavement of the individual. Half of the world follows Christianity and Islam. The world it seems never had common sense to begin with. The system needs a complete overhaul to fix itself.

      • I think one has viewed the phenomena wrongly.

        Education and critical thinking support the truthful religion and do it no harm.

        In fact it will expose the wrong thinking of the atheists.

      • There is not a single ‘prophecy of the old testament that can be considered valid. None.Thus,the Quar’an, like the bible is false doctrine, based on an erroneous lie.
        Further more, there is absolutely no archaeological evidence whatsoever to support Moses, the Exodus or the Conquest of Canaan.
        Every world renowned archaeologist and Jewish biblical scholar , including Rabbis, recognizes this fact, and have done for years. Only fundamentalists continue to deny it.

      • I respect your views and opinions; but I have to point out that neither the historians nor the archaeologist claim to be 100 % correct.

        Quran was first to confirm that Bible had light in it and guidance of the original Word revealed on Moses and other messengers prophets of the same lineage; yet it was in a corrupted form and is not in its original form.

        It is good that as you say that the Rabbis have now acknowledged these things.

        I don’t side with the fundamentalists; one should follow the middle path which is also the straight path and is a moderate way of life.

        I think there are many prophecies of Moses that have been fulfilled.

        Should I provide a link for the prophecies of prophets that have since been fulfilled?

        I consider you as a friend and have no intention to oppose you unnecessarily.

        We are all human being with all the merits and demerits associated with a human.

We Muslims believe all revealed scriptures; what is its exact nature?

Question and Answer session with Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, 5 November 1995

http://www.alislam.org/v/607.html

Please start viewing the video, setting play-head position, for the relevant Q #5 @ 01:05:00 As a Muslim we believe in all the revealed books, what is the exact nature of this believe; do we believe in them word to word or just the message as a whole? Its answer ends @ 01:06:38: the answer is only: 1.38 in duration.

Paarsurrey noted following hint words and syllables in the contents of the reply to the question asked, in case of doubt, please hear the video and correct accordingly:

The key is the revealed books, word for word, not the man-made books; even their believers believe contradictions in them, added form,

Friday sermon dated 23/03/2013 by Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad at
http://www.alislam.org/friday-sermon/2013-03-22.html

Audio Translation available in following languages; please click language of you liking accessing the website:

•Urdu •Albanian• Arabic•Bengali• Bosnian • Bulgarian• French• German• Malayalam• Russian• Swahili• Tamil• Turkish

Synopsis:

• Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih said tomorrow it is 23 March, a day commemorated as Promised Messiah Day. In this regard, today’s sermon was based on the truthfulness of the Promised Messiah(as), God’s succour and support for him, the need for an Imam of the age and the Promised Messiah’s(as) call to Muslims to accept him, in his own words.

• As regards his truthfulness, the Promised Messiah(as) wrote: ‘I see that those who wish to be the followers of nature and the law of nature have been offered a good opportunity by God Almighty of accepting my claim, in as much as they are not confronted by the difficulties in which our other opponents are involved. They know well that Jesus(as) has died and at the same time they have to confess that the prophecy contained in the Ahadith about the appearance of the Promised Messiah is among the long-established verities that cannot be denied by any reasonable person.

• The Promised Messiah(as) said that Sheikh Ibn e Arabi had written that the Promised Messiah would be born a twin, the other twin being a girl. He also foretold that the Promised Messiah’s descent will be Chinese, i.e. his forefathers would have lived in Chinese region. Divine will fulfilled all of this as the Promised Messiah(as) was born a twin with a girl and his forefathers lived in Samarkand, which is associated with China.

• The Promised Messiah(as) said that if the Maulwis of the time appraised honestly they would definitely confess that Kasr e Saleeb (metaphorical breaking of the Cross) is the task of the Mujaddid (Reformer) of the fourteenth century. As this is the task which is attributed to the Promised Messiah, the obvious outcome is that the Mujaddid of the fourteenth century should be the Promised Messiah.

• The Promised Messiah(as) said that here the natural question that arises is that how and through which resources should the Messiah do Kasr e Saleeb. Should it be done, as our opponent Maulwis believe, through fighting and war, or some other way? The creed of the Maulwis is most erroneous. It is certainly against the status of the Promised Messiah to enact war. Rather, his status demands that he removes this evil through intellectual reasoning, heavenly signs and prayer.

• The Promised Messiah(as) wrote: ‘Let it be remembered that the term ‘Imam of the age’ comprises all Prophets, Messengers, Muhaddathin and Mujaddadin. But those who are not appointed by God to educate and guide God’s creatures, nor have they been vouchsafed such excellences, regardless of their being saints or seers, cannot be called the Imams of the age. Finally we come to the question: Who is the Imam in the present age, whom all Muslims, all righteous people, and all those who experience true dreams or revelations must follow. I hereby proclaim, without any hesitation, that, by the grace and bounty of God, He has brought together in my person all these signs and conditions and sent me at the turn of this century۔

• Is it possible that a person should be true and yet should be destroyed? Is it possible that a person should be from God and should be ruined? O ye people, fight not God. This is an affair which God has designed for your sake and for the sake of your faith, so do not lay obstacles before it. You might stand before the lightening but you have not the strength to confront God. If all this had been man’s doing, none of your attacks would have been needed. God Himself would have destroyed me.

PRESS RELEASE

World Muslim Leader congratulates Pope Francis and Catholic Church

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad prays for unity and inter-faith harmony
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat would like to offer its congratulations to the Roman Catholic Church and its members across the world upon the election of His Holiness, Pope Francis I.

The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat and Fifth Khalifa of the Promised Messiah, His Holiness, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has said:

“First of all, I would like to offer congratulations to Pope Francis I and to Catholics across the world. May the appointment of the new Pope prove to be blessed not just for Christians but for all people across the globe. May the new Pope lead the Church towards the true teachings of Christianity.

I hope and pray that in the forthcoming era the Pope uses his influence to develop peace and harmony in the world. There is a great need to join together upon our common teachings and particularly upon the Unity of God.
Rather than increase division, the world desperately needs unity and compassion. This is something that I wrote to Pope Benedict XVI in a letter I sent to him in 2011.

In my letter to the Pope I also requested him to use his great influence to bring the people of the world together towards peace, reconciliation and mutual understanding and to strive to prevent the world from destruction. I send the same message to the new Pope as well.

In terms of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, we have always been at the forefront of promoting inter-faith harmony and striving for peace. We always co-operate with all people and organisations who desire peace and tolerance and will forever continue to do so.

Once again I congratulate Pope Francis and the Catholic Church and pray that the appointment proves to be a source of peace for the entire world.”

Barak Obama -“The essential truth of democracy is that each nation determines its own ‎destiny.”‎

July 29, 2009


http://www.faithfreedom.org/2009/07/29/u-s-should-encourage-democracy-in-africa-‎counter-the-wahhabis
/‎

Hi friends

I think President Obama’s following words are quotable quotes or words of wisdom.

‎ “The essential truth of democracy is that each nation determines its own destiny.”‎

‎“Each nation gives life to democracy in its own way, and in line with its own traditions.”‎

‎“In Moscow, I spoke of the need for an international system where the universal rights of ‎human beings are respected, and violations of those rights are opposed. And that must ‎include a commitment to support those who resolve conflicts peacefully, to sanction and ‎stop those who don’t, and to help those who have suffered.”‎

I appreciate Dr. Walid Phares to have given them in his article.‎

I don’t agree with Dr. Walid Phares’s advice that the West should intervene in the affairs ‎of other nations in the name of democracy or humanity; this would be like the “terrorists” ‎use the name Muslim while their acts and deeds are only political and are not supported ‎by Quran/Islam/Muhammad.‎

Is Dr. Walid Phares a “Taliban or Al-Quaida” of the Atheists/Agnostics; suggesting ‎aggression in the name of democracy or human rights? ‎

I don’t think so.‎

He should have supported Obama’s wisdom.‎

Thanks

I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim
