RADKO, EX-ATHEIST, CZECH (PART 1 OF 2): ATHEISM TO CHRISTIANITY

RADKO, EX-ATHEIST, CZECH (PART 1 OF 2): 

 A hardcore atheist becomes attracted to Christianity, but after a while finds crucial questions left unanswered.
 Stories of New Muslims Men
By Radko

 
 
 
I once knew an atheist who claimed he’d never believed in God’s existence.  In his view, believers were supposed to be people of weak character who felt the necessity to find a crutch for their inability and laziness, so they attended church.  He felt agitated if, when the debating religion, he could not persuade the opponent with his arguments.  He despised believers in an almost hysterical way.  He had, however, a very good friend who believed in God.  They agreed to refrain from discussing religion whenever together.

One day this man, probably in a rare moment of weakness, accepted the invitation of his friend to visit his church.  To himself, he laughed at the thought of speaking out in the middle of mass and laughing and pointing his finger at the believers from the pulpit.  However, as we know, God works in mysterious ways.  He went to church, stood in the back benches, and stared at the people praying.

The mass service started and he gave all of them a sarcastic glance.  Then the sermon began, lasting about 15 minutes.  Suddenly, in the middle of the sermon, tears welled in his eyes.  A strange feeling of joy and happiness washed away his animosity, a feeling that engulfed his entire body.  After mass, the two friends left together.  They were silent until the moment they were to part ways, when he asked his friend whether they could go to church together again.  They agreed to go again the next day.

It’s possible some of you might have guessed that I was that stubborn atheist.  I had felt nothing but contempt and hatred towards people of faith.  But after that sermon in 1989, when the priest discussed how we should not judge others if we don’t want to be judged, my life suddenly took a dramatic turn.

I started attending church services regularly and was thirsty for any information on God and Jesus Christ.  I took part in meetings with Christian youngsters where we exchanged our spiritual experiences.  I felt resurrected.  Suddenly I felt the need to be in the company of believers.  I needed to make up for the past 18 years.

I was brought up in an atheist family, who except for having me baptized, did not exercise any attempt to guide my spiritual development.  I remember being in sixth grade when a comrade was sent by the Communist Party to explain to us why God does not exist.  I remember myself absorbing his every word.  In my case, I needed no convincing.  I believed everything he said.  His arrogance, contempt, and hatred towards believers became mine.  But now I had to make up for all those years.

I met with a priest and others who guided me in this new direction.  I was full of so many questions, to which they responded.  Later I was to realize a big mistake: I accepted everything without contemplation or reflection.  I could say that they explained things to me in a ‘take-it-as-is’ manner, but that would not be fair to them.  It was, in fact, my mistake.  I didn’t reflect upon their words, nor did I think critically.  This would cause me a lot of complications later.  In retrospect, I believe an important factor that influenced my behavior was age.  I was too young to properly comprehend matters so serious and complicated as faith.

I wished to become a good Christian, and God knows I tried very hard.  Yet over time, I could not reconcile the contradictions found in the Bible, such as the divine nature of Prophet Jesus and the concept of inherited sin.  Priests tried to respond to my questions, but eventually, their patience began to run thin.  I was told that such matters should be accepted on faith, and that these questions were a waste of time and would only serve to distance me from God.  Till this day, I recall myself quarreling with a spiritual leader, an event that restarted my self-destructive tendencies.  Maybe I wasn’t right after all.  I was young.

How I Became Muslim
My path toward Islam wasn’t easy at all.  You may think that since I was disappointed with Christianity, I would have immediately accepted Islam as my faith.  This could have been very simple, but all I knew about Islam at the time were things like Muslims refer to God as Allah, they read the Quran instead of the Bible, and they worship somebody called Muhammad.  Also, I think I was not yet ready to accept Islam.

So I withdrew from the church community and claimed to be a soloist Christian.  I found out, however, that even though I didn’t miss the community of believers or church, God was ‘settled’ so deep in my heart that I couldn’t let Him go.  I didn’t even try.  Quite the opposite.  I felt happy to have God around and hoped He was on my side.

Later I began to engage in one stupidity after another, living a life of luxury and lust.  I did not realize that such a road would lead me away from God and towards hell.  A friend of mine says that you need to hit rock bottom in order to feel the ground beneath your feet.  This is exactly what happened to me.  I fell really deep.  I can just imagine how Satan must have been waiting for me with open arms, but God did not give up on me and gave me another chance.

 5 Reasons You Should Recite Surah Rehman Daily

by

Maham Rizwan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Surah Rehman is one of the most beneficial surahs of the Holy Quran. It comes with the solution to many diseases. In a way, it brings healing balm for you not just physically but emotionally; it is a great source of emotional healing.

This surah consists of seventy-eight verses in total. It is not very lengthy and is easy to memorize. According to the well-known Hazrat Imam Jaffar (As), you get very high rewards if you make a habit of reciting Surah Rehman every day after offering your Fajr salah.

It is also known as Surah-Ar-Rehman.

 

  • General benefits of recitation of Surah Rehman

This particular Surah eliminates pietism from the heart of a living being. In the event that it is recounted before the evening, it is said that an angel will protect the person recited it until nightfall and on the off chance that you recite it after the Maghrib, so your Creator will send a heavenly attendant to monitor you until you are awake.

In the case, you write Surah Rehman on the dividers of your home so that it will keep a wide range of family issues away.

 

  • Surah Rehman in Death

Additionally, Hazrat Imam Jaffar (AS) said that whoever discusses this specific Surah and bites the dust is viewed as a saint. What else do you need from the Quran? This surah will protect you in your death as well and will make it all easy for you.

 

  • Eye Disease

An amazing thing about this Surah is that it cures all your eye afflictions. Even people who suffer from eyesight issues must recite this Surah daily, and they will see the difference with the help of Allah.

 

  • Surah Rehman for Marriage

It is said that if you recite this Surah every day for twenty-one days for yourself or your daughter, sister, anyone who wants to get married, Allah will have mercy and with the help of the Almighty, you will get married. You must read this Surah with reciting the Darood-e-Pak before and after Surah Rehman.

 

  • Surah Rehman for Patients

This Surah is the arrangement of all issues and illnesses that include diseases like depression, hypertension, diabetes, and some very serious issues like cancer. We allude to recount the Surah Rehman treatment to control the psychic issues like anxiety and depression, more often than not with the end goal of enhancing ordinary working.

Each and every chronic disease can be cured with the help of Surah Rehman. If an ill person listens to this surah, it is more than treatment for him, and with the mercy of Allah Almighty, he will be cured in no time.

Always remember that the Creator of the universe Allah, only he can take decisions of life and death and no one can cure you of any disease but Allah.

 

  • Therapy for the Soul

If a man listens to Surah Rehman daily, it mends the injuries of his spirit. It will make you all fresh and will make you feel great about yourself.

 

Make this your routine, recite Surah Rehman daily and have a good time in the world and hereafter.

Your fatwa does not apply here | Karima Bennoune | TEDxExeter

Your fatwa does not apply here | Karima Bennoune | TEDxExeter

Published on May 5, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. One day, Karima Bennoune found herself wondering whether she could protect her father with a paring knife. She tells the stories of individual Muslims struggling against fundamentalism and terrorism.

Karima Bennoune is a professor of international law at the University of California–Davis School of Law. She grew up in Algeria and the United States and now lives in northern California.

She has published widely in many leading academic journals, as well as in the Guardian, The New York Times, Comment is Free, the website of Al Jazeera English, The Nation. The topic of her most recent publication ‘Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here’ is a very personal one for her. Her father Mahfoud Bennoune was an outspoken professor at the University of Algiers, and faced death threats during the 1990s, but continued speaking out against fundamentalism and terrorism. In writing this book, Karima set out to meet people who are today doing what her father did back then, to try to garner for them greater international support than Algerian democrats received during the 1990s.

She has served as a member of the Executive Council of the American Society of International Law and on the board of directors of Amnesty International USA. Currently, she sits on the Board of the Network of Women Living Under Muslim Laws. She has also been a consultant on human rights issues for the International Council on Human Rights Policy, the Soros Foundation, the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers, and for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Her human rights field missions have included Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Fiji, Lebanon, Pakistan, South Korea, southern Thailand, and Tunisia.

She traveled to Algeria in February 2011 to serve as an observer at pro-democracy protests with the support of the Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights, writing a series of articles about these events for the Guardian. In October 2011, she volunteered as an election observer during the Tunisian constituent assembly elections with Gender Concerns International.

At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers connected us with other worlds. Our talks exposed corruption in big business, shared effective approaches to tackling social inequality and gave a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We explored the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We journeyed through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We were challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.
