Women are one half of society, which gives birth to the other half so it is as if they are the entire society.
BismilLahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
The institution of marriage and the want to have children was the custom of the best of creation, the prophets and messengers chosen by ALLAH. ALLAH says about them
"And indeed ALLAH sent messengers before you and made for them wives and offspring" (al-Raad 38).
The best example for the believers is the example of the prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam), who married and had children. These prophets and messengers are the people whom Muslims should look to emulate. Allah says
"They are those whom ALLAH has guided. So follow their guidance" (al-Anaam 90).
They should be emulated and none else.
Islam has forbidden celibacy (state of not being married), monasticism (life of monks & nuns) and castration (removal of the male glands) for such purposes. The prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) made this clear when he told those companions who were considering acetic forms of life: "I pray and I sleep; I fast and I break my fast; and I marry women. Whoever turns away from my way of life is not from me."
The prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) not only encouraged marriage but he encouraged marrying those women who are child-bearing. He stated: "marry the loving, child-bearing women for I shall have the largest numbers among the prophets on the day of Resurrection."(Recorded by Ahmad and ibn Hibban.).
From the Islamic perspective, children are a gift and a blessing from ALLAH. ALLAH mentions some of the bounties that HE has bestowed upon mankind in the following verse: "And ALLAH has made for you spouses of your own kind and has made for you, from your wives, sons and grandsons, and has bestowed upon you good provisions." (al-Nahl 72).
ALLAH also said: "Wealth and children are the adornment of the life of this world." (al-Kahf 46).
The only true provider for all mankind is ALLAH. If Muslims follow what ALLAH has prescribed for them, ALLAH will provide for them. ALLAH has warned about killing one's children out of fear of poverty for either parents or the child. ALLAH says: "Kill not your children because of poverty - ALLAH provide sustenance for you and for them" (al-Anaam 151).
ALLAH also says: "And kill not your children for fear of poverty. ALLAH shall provide for them as well as for you. Surely, the killing of them is a great sin" (al-Isra 31).
Hence, Muslims should never abort or kill their children out of fear of poverty. It is ALLAH who provides for them.
To be continued in Shaa ALLAH. Please hold on to your questions on this topic till after the third Reminder to understand the topic well. May ALLAH keep guiding us all and grant us Halaal form of sustenance. Aameen.
Real happiness and peace can be found in submitting to the commands of the Creator and the Sustainer of this world. Allah has said in the Quran:
Truly, in remembering Allah do hearts find rest. (Quran, 13:28)
On the other hand, the one who turns away from the Quran will have a life of hardship in this world. Allah has said:
But whoever turns away from the Quran, he will have a hard life, and We will raise him up blind on the Day of Judgment. (Quran, 20:124)
اَللّٰهُمَّ اَرِنَا الْحَقَّ حَقًا وَّارْزُقْنَا اتِّبَاعَه وَاَرِنَا الْبَاطِلَ بَاطِلًا وَّارْزُقْنَا اجْتِنَابَه
O Allah! Enable me to see the Truth as Truth and give me the ability to follow it. And enable me to see the falsehood as false and give me the ability to refrain from it.
WHAT IS LIFE? Man's existence in this world and the creation of this entire universe are not mere accidents or products of a fortuitous nature. This universe, every single atom of it, manifests and leads us to the realization of a Loving, Merciful and All-powerful Creator, ALLAH by name. Without a Creator, nothing can exist. Every single soul knows that he is existing and that his existence is dependent upon a Creator he knows for sure that he cannot create him self. Therefore it is his duty to know his master, the Creator.
HuMan is a unique creature. ALLAH establishes human as His representative or deputy to govern over all other creatures in this world. He is endowed with the faculty of REASON, which sets him apart from all other animals. Together with this faculty to discriminate and discern, man is given the freedom (free-will) to choose for himself a way of life worthy of his or her position as Allah's representative or to fall lower than the lowest of all animals or creations. Man is born pure and sinless and is given the choice to do righteous deeds or indulge in sins.
The Creator, out of His abundant Love and Mercy for mankind has not left us in darkness to discover the right path by trial and error alone. Coupled with our intellectual capability to reason, our Creator bestowed upon us DIVINE GUIDANCE that outlines the Criterion for TRUTH, knowledge, as well as the reality of our existence in this world and the Hereafter. Let's live our life as a traveler who is resting under a tree to continue after some time.
TO BE CONTINUED in shaa Allah. May Allah have mercy on us and protect us from any satanic influences. Aameen.

The Universe:Signs that Indicate Allah's (SWT) Greatness
The orbit of the earth around the sun:
Reflect on this divine blessing:
Cement is unbreakable under the pressure of 550 Kilograms on each centimeter square, but it is breakable if pulled by 5 kilograms, and for that reason iron is used with the cement in buildings, else the building will collapse.
Therefore we need, according to the second scenario, a trillion steel cables to bring back the earth to the sun's gravity, and if we planted those cables on the surface of earth with a space of 5 meters between every two cables, there would be no agriculture, industry, factories, buildings, seas, ships, transportations, or a sun because the cables' forest will conceal sun light and the life will be over, now pay attention:
“Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see;” [Quran, 13:2]
It means: with invisible pillars that you can't see.
The gravity powers exist but can't be seen yet people can walk through. In fact, is it possible that earth's inhabitants altogether can build a building, like a 10 stories' medical school building for example,with no connection to the ground, and beneath which is only air?
Impossible, and so is the universe, it has gravity powers which can't be seen yet people can walk through, but we need pillars on earth for any building, therefore:
“Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see;” [Quran, 13:2]
This is one of the universal signs, indicates the Greatness of Allah.
To be continued....
In Sha Allah
May Allah (SWT) Bless us and guide us in all our affairs
Dua is the most underrated, underused tool in our life. \Why are we not using it to its fullest potential?

﴿وَمَا خَلَقْنَا السَّمَـوَتِ وَالاٌّرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ إِلاَّ بِالْحَقِّ وَإِنَّ السَّاعَةَ لآتِيَةٌ﴾
(And We did not create the heavens and the earth and all that is between them except with the truth, and the Hour is surely coming), i.e., with justice to -
﴿لِيَجْزِىَ الَّذِينَ أَسَاءُواْ بِمَا عَمِلُواْ﴾
(requite those who do evil with that which they have done) ﴿53:31﴾ Allah says,
﴿وَمَا خَلَقْنَا السَّمَآءَ وَالاٌّرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا بَـطِلاً ذَلِكَ ظَنُّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فَوَيْلٌ لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِنَ النَّارِ ﴾
(And We did not create the heaven and the earth, and all that is between them without purpose! That is what those who disbelieve think! Then let those who disbelieve be warned of the Fire!)(38:27)
﴿أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَـكُمْ عَبَثاً وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لاَ تُرْجَعُونَ - فَتَعَـلَى اللَّهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمِ ﴾
(''Did you think that We created you in play, and that you would not be brought back to Us'' So exalted be Allah, the Truth, the King, none has the right to be worshipped but He, the Lord of the Honored Throne!)(23:115-116).
﴿إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ الْخَلَّـقُ الْعَلِيمُ ﴾
(Verily, your Lord is the Knowing Creator)(15:86). This is a confirmation of the Day of Resurrection and that Allah, may He be exalted, is able to bring the Hour to pass. He is the Creator and nothing is beyond Him. He is the Knowing, Who knows what has been dispersed from people's bodies and scattered throughout the regions of the earth, as He says:
﴿أَوَلَـيْسَ الَذِى خَلَقَ السَّمَـوتِ وَالاٌّرْضَ بِقَـدِرٍ عَلَى أَن يَخْلُقَ مِثْلَهُم بَلَى وَهُوَ الْخَلَّـقُ الْعَلِيمُ - إِنَّمَآ أَمْرُهُ إِذَآ أَرَادَ شَيْئاً أَن يَقُولَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ - فَسُبْحَـنَ الَّذِى بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴾
(Is not He, Who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like of them Yes, indeed! He is the Knowing, Creator. Verily, His command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to it, ''Be!'' - and it is! So glorified and exalted is He above all that they associate with Him, and in whose Hands is the dominion of all things, and to Him you shall return.)(36:81-83).
﴿وَلَقَدْ ءاتَيْنَـكَ سَبْعًا مِّنَ الْمَثَانِي وَالْقُرْءَانَ الْعَظِيمَ - لاَ تَمُدَّنَّ عَيْنَيْكَ إِلَى مَا مَتَّعْنَا بِهِ أَزْوَاجًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلاَ تَحْزَنْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَاخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴾
(87. And indeed, We have bestowed upon you seven of the Mathani, and the Grand Qur'an.) (88. Look not with your eyes ambitiously at what We have given to certain classes of them, nor grieve over them. And lower your wings to the believers.)
“O our Lord, grant us the best in this life and the best in the next life, and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.”
