You may like to read the article in The Daily Telegraph of London: Crows may be smarter than apes.

The Holy Quran says:

“Then Allah sent a crow scratching the ground to show him how to cover the dead body of his brother. He said: Woe is me! Am I not able to be as this crow and cover the dead body of my brother? So he became of those who regret.” (5:31).

Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi of our Jamaat was very interested in relating statements of the Quran about the natural world to scientific research and external knowledge (e.g. behaviour of the bee, the spider, the ant, what trees do, etc.), and wrote much about how God’s creation is superior to man’s and what moral lessons man can learn from each of these.

Dr Israr Ahmad confirms that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad did service to Islam

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

Below is the link to a You Tube video clip of a discussion on ARY One TV. Participating are Dr Javaid Iqbal (son of Allama Iqbal), Prof. Mahdi Hasan and Dr Israr Ahmad.

Allama Iqbal’s praise of Hazrat Mirza sahib is mentioned and acknowledged.

Someone mentions that Abdul Majeed Salik was also an Ahmadi. But he was one of those whose being Ahmadi was not later provable. He wrote a brief life of Iqbal in the 1950s, Zikr-i Iqbal. Salik lived in Muslim Town, very close to Maulana Muhammad Ali’s house, and in the street where I was born. The street is now named after him.

They then discuss why Ahmadiyyat was admired by all these people. The reason they give is that Hazrat Mirza sahib stood up to confront Christian and Arya Samaj attacks on Islam. Dr Israr Ahmad mentions it with some stress and you can tell he is telling the turth from the heart.

Ramadan daily Quran study

Monday, September 1st, 2008

During this month of Ramadan I plan to post one section (ruku) from a Part of the Holy Quran everyday for people to ponder on. The part from which a section will be selected will be Part 1 on the first day, Part 2 on the second day and so on for thirty days. The section could be any in that part. I will try my best to keep to this schedule.

The post will be a pdf file and will contain only the translation, with brief explanatory notes abbreviated and sometimes adapted from Maulana Muhammad Ali’s English commentary. Each link opens a new window.
