  2. ACCORDING to the BIG BANG THEORY the whole universe was a big mass (primary nebula) then there was a BIG BANG (secondary separation) which resulted in the formation of galaxies . These then divided to form stars, planets, the sun, the moon.
    My question is from one part the galaxies were made what about the other part which was separated.

    • Assalaam alaikum,

      Explanation of surah 23, verses 5-6

      ﴿وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِفُرُوجِهِمْ حَـفِظُونَ – إِلاَّ عَلَى أَزْوَجِهِمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـنُهُمْ فَإِنَّهُمْ غَيْرُ مَلُومِينَ – فَمَنِ ابْتَغَى وَرَآءَ ذلِكَ فَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْعَادُونَ ﴾

      (And those who guard their private parts. Except from their wives and their right hand possessions, for then, they are free from blame. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors.) means, those who protect their private parts from unlawful actions and do not do that which Allah has forbidden; fornication and homosexuality, and do not approach anyone except the wives whom Allah has made permissible for them or their right hand possessions from the captives. One who seeks what Allah has made permissible for him is not to be blamed and there is no sin on him. Allah says:

      ﴿فَإِنَّهُمْ غَيْرُ مَلُومِينَفَمَنِ ابْتَغَى وَرَآءَ ذلِكَ﴾

      (they are free from blame. But whoever seeks beyond that) meaning, other than a wife or slave girl,

      ﴿فَأُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْعَادُونَ﴾

      (then those are the transgressors.) meaning , aggressors.

  17. I want to know that on the night of miraj prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) offered prayers (masjid e aqsa)with all prophets and became imam ul anbia but when they went above heavens and meet with god and god gave pravers(5times a day) and then jibrael A.S told the methods of prayings
    so I want to ask you question that how it is possible that prophet offered prayer in masjid e aqsa first but got the methods of praying after miraj?
