A Contemporary Commentary of the Qur'an: The Risale-i Nur Collection
» Man, the needy of God
Through the light of belief, man rises to the highest of the high and acquires a value worthy of Paradise. And through the darkness of unbelief, he descends to the lowest of the low and falls to a position fit for Hell.

... from the verses of The Noble Qur'an
Glory be to God in the evening and at daybreak, and praise is His in the heavens and earth, at nightfall and when the day begins to decline. It is He Who brings forth the living from the dead, and brings forth the dead from the living, and gives life to the earth after its death; thus, too, will you be brought forth.( Qur'an, 30:17-19)
... from the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Sahl bin Sa'd Al-Sa'idi (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that There was an encounter between Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) and the polytheists, and they fought (against one another). At the conclusion of the battle Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) bent his steps towards his army and they (the enemies) bent their steps towards their army. And there was a person among the Companions of Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) who did not spare a detached (fighter of the enemy) but pursued and killed him with the sword. They (the Companions of the Holy Prophet) said: “None served us better today than this man.” Upon this Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) remarked: “Verily he is one of the denizens of Fire.” One of the people (Muslims) said: “I will constantly shadow him. Then this man went out along with him. He halted whenever he halted, and ran along with him whenever he ran.” He (the narrator) said: “The man was seriously injured. He (could not stand the pain) and hastened his own death. He placed the blade of the sword on the ground with the tip between his chest and then pressed himself against the sword and killed himself. Then the man (following him) went to Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) and said: “I bear testimony that verily you are the Messenger of Allah.” He (the Holy Prophet) asked: “What is the matter?” He replied: “The person about whom you just mentioned that he was one among the denizens of Fire and the people were surprised (at this) and I said to them that I would bring (the news about) him and consequently I went out in search of him till I found him to be very seriously injured. He hastened his death. He placed the blade of the sword upon the ground and its tip between his chest and then pressed himself against that and killed himself.” Thereupon Allah's Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) remarked: “A person performs the deeds which to the people appear to be the deeds befitting the dweller of Paradise, but he is in fact one of the denizens of Hell. And verily a person does an act which in the eyes of public is one which is done by the denizens of Hell, but the person is one among the dwellers of Paradise.”
» Brother Tapiwa reverted on July 26, 2002
My next experience was in tenth grade, later that same year when a muslim woman came to our school and explained Islam to us in a two hour lecture. Prior to that, I thought that muslims did not acknowledge Christ. She let us know that Muslims acknowledge Christ but as a prophet (which I know now) and not the son of God.
