Why did I Embrace Islam?
This is an extract from Dr. Gronier, a French MP, who embraced Islam.
Revealing the reason of embracing Islam he said, I read all of the
Ayat (Quranic verses), which have a relation to medical, health, and
natural sciences that I studied before and have a wide knowledge of. I
found that these verses are totally compatible with and give a picture
of our modern sciences. Thus, I embraced Islam as it was obvious that
Muhammad revealed the Absolute Truth more than a thousand years ago.
Had every specialist, artist or scientist compared those Quranic
verses to his own specialization, beyond the shadow of doubt he would
embrace Islam, especially if he has a sound mentality and goodwill to
search for the truth and not a mentally defective person with the
intentions of malevolent aims>>
Islam is the last religion to be sent to the world , every religion
had proofs that authenticated its Divine source . God foreordained
that Islam would be the last message to the world ,
so it must comprise many miracles that could be categorized under six
categories , among them in this age , being the age of science , what
is termed as the scientific miracles which science has recently proved
them amazingly . let alone the scientific miracle , as we are going to
talk about the unseen matters news . Prophet Mohummed had depicted and
given prophecies concerning our generation and the many generation to
come . In fact , these prophecies which can't be easily enumerated ,
have come true .
As to the miracle of the unseen news , prophet Mohummed gave a large
number of them ; some of them happened during his life , others
directly after his death . Every age witnessed the fulfilment some of
these . The large portion of these prophecies go to our age . Insha
Allah , we will tackle these in the coming studies.
Some of these prophecies , as prophet Mohummed determined , are
portents of the of the doomsday . we ,now , are approaching that day
according to the Devine calculation .
The miracle of the unseen tackled that the different phases of life ,
these tackled the social life , economic life , techmological life ,
political strifes and wars . Though ther are fearful , they prove the
true phrophethood of prophet Mohummed . What we are giving here are
just two portents that reflect the social and economic life .The
Bedouins , in the life of prophet Mohummed , used to lead a very
simple life . They used to live in very simple houses out of mud and
palm leaves . The discovery of oil made a revolution in every thing in
the life of the bedouin . Contraray to the life they used to lead ,
they ,now , live in very tall structures but even they compete in
building very high structures

Here are two Hadith ( traditional sayings of prophet mohummed ) that
talk about two prophecies that have come true .
It is narrated in Sahih Muslim that Allah's Apostle (peace be upon
him) said to his companions ( through a long conversation about the
signs of the last hour) ask me but the companions of the prophet
embarrassed to ask him. Then there appeared before us a man and sat
with the Apostle (peace be upon him) He knelt before him placed his
palms on his thighs and said: Muhammad, inform me about al-Islam. The
Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: Al-Islam implies that you
testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the
messenger of Allah, and you establish prayer, pay Zakat, observe the
fast of Ramadan. He (the inquirer) said: You have told the truth. He
(the inquirer) said: Inform me about Iman (faith). He (the Holy
Prophet) replied: That you affirm your faith in Allah, in His angels,
in His Books, in His Apostles, in the Day of Judgment, and you affirm
your faith in the Divine Decree about good and evil. He (the inquirer)
said: You have told the truth. He (the inquirer) again said: Inform me
about al-Ihsan (performance of good deeds). He (the Holy Prophet)
said: That you worship Allah as if you are seeing Him, for though you
don't see Him, He, verily, sees you. He (the enquirer) again said:
Inform me about the hour (of the Doom). He (the Holy Prophet)
remarked: One who is asked knows no more than the one who is inquiring
(about it). He (the inquirer) said: Tell me some of its indications.
He (the Holy Prophet) said: That the slave-girl will give birth to her
mistress and master, that you will find barefooted, destitute goat-
herds vying with one another in the construction of magnificent
buildings .
Man installed hundreds of marine stations to study the characteristics
of various seas. Scientists have found out that the differences in
these characteristics distinguished one sea from another. But why do
these seas not mix and become homogeneous in spite of the effect of
tide and ebb that moves sea water twice a day, and causes seas to move
forward and backward turbulently, besides other factors that cause sea
water to be in continuous movement and turbulence, such as surface and
internal waves and sea currents?
The answer appeared for the first time in scientific books in 1361 AH/
1942 AD. Extensive studies of marine characteristics revealed that
there are water barriers separating neighboring seas and maintaining
the distinctive properties of each sea with respect to density,
salinity, marine life, temperature and solubility of oxygen in water.

There are large waves, strong currents, and tides in the Mediterranean
Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Mediterranean Sea water enters the
Atlantic by Gibraltar. But their temperature, salinity, and densities
do not change, because of the barrier that separates them.
After 1962 AD there was known the role of sea barriers in modifying
the properties of the water masses that pass from one sea to another,
to prevent one sea from overwhelming the other. So salty seas retain
their own properties and boundaries by virtue of these barriers.
A field study comparing the waters of Oman Gulf and those of the
Arabian Gulf has shown the difference between them regarding their
chemical properties, the prevalent vegetation and the barrier
separating them.
About a hundred years of research and study has been required to
discover the fact of the existence of barriers between sea water
masses and their role in making each sea retain its own properties.
Hundred of researchers took part and numerous precise scientific
instruments and equipment were used to achieve that.
Fourteen centuries ago the Holy Qur’an revealed this fact.
We can conclude the following from the discussion above:
The Holy Qur’an, which was revealed more than 14 centuries ago,
includes very precise pieces of information and knowledge about marine
phenomena that have been discovered only recently by means of very
sophisticated equipment. An instance in this respect is the existence
of water barriers between seas.
The historical development of Oceanography shows that no precise
information had been available on seas before Challenger Expedition
(in 1873 AD), let alone at the time when the Holy Qur’an was being
revealed 14 centuries ago to an illiterate Prophet that lived in a
desert environment and never traveled by sea.
Oceanography has witnessed no advances except in the last two
centuries, particularly in the latter half of the twentieth century.
Prior to that a sea was considered as something fearful and
mysterious. Myths and superstitions were fabricated about it. Sea
voyagers were only interested in their own safety and how to find the
correct routes during their long journeys. Man discovered that salt
seas are different only in the thirties of the twentieth century,
after thousands of marine stations had been established by researchers
to analyze samples of sea water to measure the differences between the
degrees of temperature, salinity, density and oxygen dissolubility in
the sea water recorded at all those stations, and then realize that
salt seas are different.
Man did not know anything about the barrier that separates between
salt seas till the establishment of the aforesaid stations, and after
spending a long time tracing these wavy moving barriers that change
their geographical locations with the change of seasons.
Man did not know that the water masses of the two seas are separated
by a water barrier and are mixed at the same time till he started
studying with his ships and equipment the water movement in the
meeting region of the seas and analyzing the water masses in those
Man did not apply this rule to all seas that meet together except
after vast scientific surveying, investigation and verification of
this phenomenon, which occurs between each pair of adjacent seas in
the world.
Now then, did Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) own stations and
equipment for analyzing water and the ability to trace the movement of
various water masses? Did he carry out a comprehensive surveying
process, although he never sailed the sea and lived at a time when
superstitions were prevalent, particularly in the field of seas? Were,
at the time of Allah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) such researches,
instruments and studies as are available for the oceanographers of
today who have discovered all these secrets by means of research and
This knowledge, which the Qur’an came with, included a precise
de******ion of the subtlest secrets at a time when humanity could
never have known them, which indicates that its source is Divine
**Regarding praying to Makkah at whose middle the Kaaba and the
Inviolable Mosque lie, Allah orders us in the Qur’an to do so: “So
turn your face towards the Inviolable Mosque; and wherever you are,
then turn your faces towards it.” (The Cow 144[a5]) Various studies,
among which one was done by Dr. Hussein Kamal Ad Din, Head of the
Department of Survey Engineering at RiyadhUniversity, proved that
Makkah is the center of earth. Dr. Robert G. Coleman (3[a6]),
StanfordUniversity in USA, did a study on the center of earth gravity
and the point in which gravity cosmological radiations meet (the
meeting point magnetic gravitational radiations) on earth; he found
that this center is Makkah. Makkah, then, is the center of the seven
continents as well as the meeting point of magnetic gravitational
As for going around the Kaaba anticlockwise, it is consistent with the
movement of the whole universe: from the atom to the galaxy. Going
around is a cosmological phenomenon that includes everything. The
electron goes around the nucleus, the moons go around their planets,
the planets go around their suns, the suns and the stars go around the
centers of their galaxies, and even energy goes around in its paths;
all these movements are anticlockwise. It is the same direction of the
Hajji going around the Kaaba.

The story of this woman is an extraordinary example of the long tiring
intellectual journey through which those who converted to Islam always
undergo . She embodies the real challenging will and introduces a good
courageous intellectual mind which is to be considered the finest kind
of courage at all. She proudly narrated her story as follows:
“ I was born in 1971 in Montreal, Canada. I was grown up within a
religious Catholic family , so I used to go to church until I was 14
years old when I started to have my personal questions about our
Creator and the different religions...I have always believed in God
and in His power and in His greatness, so I have studied different
religions seeking for any convincing answers for my endless questions
but again I could not find what I was looking for… I was so confused
and distracted until I started my university. There I came to know a
Muslim young man , who introduced Islam to me. I was so overwhelmed as
it was an easy way to track the answers for my doubts and questions.
It took me a whole year just to study such a religion, and the result
was that I was obsessed by Islam to the bones. I was further
overwhelmed when I saw how the Moslems -in their prayers- adoringly
prostrate themselves to God, it is some thing I could not find in any
other religion. I was obsessed by such touching movements which the
worshipper performs... they convey nothing but peace of mind ,
politeness and a perfect act of worship, it seems as if he really
feels that he is at the hands of God.
I started attending the mosque where I could find many other Canadian
Muslim sisters, who encouraged me to follow my track to Islam. I wore
the veil in an attempt to test my will, and two weeks later came the
true moment when I testified that there are no other gods but Allah,
the One, and that Muhammad (PBUH) is His prophet and messenger.

Very interesting & good fro you but I cannot find any thing related to
python here.

This place just isn't big enough for all of us. We've got to find a way
off this planet.
