The Muslim Times’ Chief Editor’s comment
On a side note, during this commentary of some of the verses of Sura Hujjarat, Mirza Tahir Ahmad also says that the reason for the downfall of the Muslim civilization was that they followed conjecture, rather than the fundamental truths of society or science.
I agree and echo his sentiment that this is still true. Laws of nature have not changed. If the Muslims, regardless of sect or their beliefs of theology, if follow conjecture rather than than the fundamental truths of society or science, history will repeat itself. You have been warned.
The holy Quran says:
“And most of them follow nothing but conjecture. Surely, conjecture avails nothing against truth. Indeed, Allah is well aware of what they do.” (Al Quran 10:36)
“But they have no knowledge thereof. They follow nothing but conjecture; and conjecture avails naught against truth.” (Al Quran 53:28)
