I am a Muslim man born into a Muslim family. During the many years of my growing up, I have studied the Quran, A-Hadith (prophetic sayings), Islamic biographies of the caliphs, the prophet Mohammad`s life, and early Islamic historians & scholars. I must say I have a vast knowledge of Islam; may be over 20 years.I am in no way bragging out my faith!
I had also left my vicinity & journeyed with Jam-mat, and where we acted very similar to Christian missionary men and propagated the words of our faiths to other non-Muslims and Muslim people. This i have done In America, Canada, UK, and overseas. It is very obvious that I follow the Sunni Creed.
I had also the honor to study with Hifz, (memorization of the Quran via Islamic private school) and learn Qirat (beautiful vowel pronunciation of Arabic and breath control) when reading Quran.
I also had the honour to convert many men into the fold of Islam many years back, and learn more profound meaning of Islam via Sufism. So, life continued until I entered some information on NDE.
Throughout my life, I loved to read, and read and read. About a while ago, I came upon the Topic of NDE, and after Reading Atwater, Moody, Dr. Parnia and other great NDE`r, I was very very interested an intrigued about this matter as I had no prior knowledge to this from the many facets of my Islamic views and the books that I had once read.
I must rewind for you my past views on Islam, so you may understand me a bit better. I had always questioned and argued to my close friends before I had stumbled on any form of information about NDE, that I truly do not agree with certain concepts of Islam regarding punishing people in Hell if they hold certain beliefs when they die. Also, I abhor killing, in the name of any religion, and I hold extremely strong beliefs that division, racism, and negativity cannot be a part of GODS plan, as I was taught that I had the greatest correct faith given to mankind, and this Quran is in guarded tablet in where it is closed to the Throne of ALLAH!
I was taught from Early age that Jewish people were dividers and corrupted faith, and Christians were wrong doers, and we were the chosen.We were taught this because it stated in my Holy Book, the Quran.
I was also taught, that success only came when you established your five times salaat (Prayer), and must be read in Arabic, the holy language, the language of Paradise.
I was taught, that the Quran could never be corrupted, nor polluted, and I must perform the Pilgrimage once in my lifetime or strive to save money for this course. I was taught that I must enslave myself to the teachings of Prophet Mohammad, and what ever he did, was given via blessings and whatever he said, was given from by the persimmon of ALLAH.
If I ever thought differently, lo and behold. it is from the devil. No questioned asked. Period.
Basically, you actually cannot waver, because the clause would only signify that if it is not in the quran or any other Islamic teachings, then it is from Satan. Its like a double edge sword. You are left with a narrow-mindedness entrapment in certain teaching in where you cannot accept anything out of the contents of Islamic beliefs or ideology.
Yes there are many Muslims whom are very successful & prosperous, but when I mean narrow minded, i mean they have no idea what else that can accomplish & become greater in healing humanity.
But i must make my point to what I have stated regarding my topic"Why we have not heard of any Muslims having NDE, or meeting the Prophet?"
There is only one logical explanation, because the Quran that I have studied for over 20 years, is entangled with some form of negativity. Or shall I say many forms of Negativity.
The Quran is not allowed in the spirit world as called by NDE, or heaven called by christens, or Jan-nah, called by Muslim, but the humans are, regardless of faith. Why? Let me prove my point, with logical research that is, and I am a Muslim so I not against my own faith, nor am I a hypocrite.
A hypocrite pretends to hide his/her true feeling after understanding the truth.
The cause of all division-------------------------
Allah commands us in the Qur'an: [O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you -
then indeed, he is one of them. Indeed Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.] - Maa'idah 5/51
Division is not allowed in paradise, remember, the true object of the true Creator is that he loves all human beings regardless of race, faith, and color. Unconditional love is a must for the true creator.
Disgracing someones faith..........
QURAN: Surah V Ayat 41
and from among those who are Jews; they are listeners for the sake of a lie, listeners for another people who have not come to you; they alter the words from their places, saying: If you are given this, take it, and if you are not given this, be cautious; and as for him whose temptation Allah desires, you cannot control anything for him with Allah. Those are they for whom Allah does not desire that He should purify their hearts; they shall have disgrace in this world, and they shall have a grievous chastisement in the hereafter.
Our creator has created all sorts of faith, and each one of them will lead to him. You are not allowed to curse nor offend any faith, or does any faith deserve Hell, or be cursed in any matter.
Muslims are supposed to read these verses from the Quran while performing Salaat, Prayer. In other words, your actually cursing in Arabic and you actually don't even know it!
Not allowed in the spirit world when one dies. you will be corrected.
Is this our loving creator according to NDE accounts from thousands of regular people??
Qur'an 88:1 "Has the narration reached you of the overwhelming (calamity)? Some faces that Day, will be humiliated, downcast, scorched by the burning fire, while they are made to drink from a boiling hot spring."
Qur'an 72:15 "But the Qasitun (disbelievers) are the firewood of hell."
Qur'an 8:50 "If you could have seen the infidels when the angels drew away their souls, striking their faces and smiting their backs. The angels said: 'Taste the penalty of the blazing Fire.'"
Hell, punishment and terror is summoned to humans of other faiths according to quran. It does not matter if your a nice Christian, or a nice Jew, or an ordinary citizen.
A spiritual Angel has acted as an angered person cursing a person because he grew up on another faith??
Is not the object of life to care for all humans that we reach our destined goal in contentment regardless of faith, and help one another?
Quran: Sūra 9: Tauba v.5
But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay those who reject Islam wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
War is in no way an option for a faith to promulgate!
I may go on, and I will later on, but my point is this; these verses will in no be allowed in heaven, or Jannah, or Paradise, or the spirit world in where are human beings will go once they have reached there time on this earth.
This may be the main reason why no Muslim person has been given a NDE, and tell us about it.
For those new Muslim, be careful, and for those entering into Islam, be very very careful, its your choice. Please read more on NDE, and be open minded. Do not let a faith cause you division, hatred, or malice, or claim right over the other faith.
Remember, your already save, you just don't know it.
Peace and Salaam
