We believe that a true and comprehensive understanding of Islam would not be possible without careful recognition of the Prophetic Tradition and the Prophet's Household. And Allah is the Source of Strength.

This World is Nothing

" We studied in science that matter is made up of molecules which are a cluster of atoms, the indivisible component of matter.

Atoms were further divided into sub-atomic particles, or protons and neutrons (in the nucleus) and electrons (orbiting the nucleus). The question is, what are these sub-atomic particles made up of?

Science struggled but gave the concept of Quarks. But because it still does not make sense, the brain questioned as to what were Quarks made up of in return, and to tackle it, the string theory popped up in scientific papers.

Unfortunately, that does not answer the question either. There must be something which makes the strings. And then the string makers must have their own sub-components and so on. The chain will go on until it reaches the ultimate component, the basic thing which makes up everything around you; nothing, emptiness.

This is the reality of this world, about which the Quran has said, "the life of this world is nothing but a provision of vanities. "
