Saintis Yang Masuk Islam Hasil Penyelidikkan
Alhamdulillah, Allah s.w.t masih memberi kita nikmat iman dan islam, dan juga selawat dan salam keatas Baginda s.a.w. Disini aku selitkan satu kisah dimana seorang insan yang tidak percaya kepada tuhan mencari islam.. klu xfaham boleh pakai Mr.Google.... (^_^)
Prof. Dr. Muhammad al’Mahdi spent almost 14 years as a full time university student in the USA, including three Ph.D. programs, in child, clinical, and experimental psychology. He was an Assistant Professor of Child/Clinical psychology in USA. He was a close associate of Dr. B.F. Skinner, the world’s most prominent psychologist from Harvard University, who honoured him by referring to him as his protégé. He worked for the US government Office of Child Development as a research director in children’s values education, and was a Chief Psychologist for Head Start (a nationwide federal early child development program in the U.S.). Additionally he was trained in nuclear electronics and theoretical physics by the U.S. military and at one of the world’s top research laboratories, where he had the opportunity to work with and discuss the basic nature of existence with several Nobel Prize winners in theoretical physics.
Prof. Dr. Muhammad al’Mahdi did ran one of the world’s largest Islamic websites (islamic-world.net) which is visited up to 2.5 million times each month from about 130 countries and was also the founder of Khalifah Institute. While living in Malaysia, the country which later became his home, he devoted his time and energy solely to Islam. He was Director of Malaysia: Nation of Character Program (MNOC) for LPPKN in the Ministry of Women and Family Development, Director of Parent Training for ABIM, a lecturer for SABA Islamic Media on parenting and Signs of the Creator, and also working with Multi-Media University on the production of an animated TV series on the Khalifah Project called, “Jannah: Child of Paradise”. He was coordinator and advisor of the Khalifah Project model school program in ADNI Islamic school in Kuala Lumpur.
Prof. Dr. Muhammad al'Mahdi devoted his last days to training others in the knowledge and techniques he acquired during his lifetime. He was for over half of his life an atheist, convinced by the materialist science he knew so well that God did not exist. After he came to understand the non-materialist science of Einstein, particularly the necessary logical implications of Einstein’s General and Special Theories of Relativity, he realized that if he wanted to be honest as a scientist he had to accept that scientific data now very powerfully proclaimed that God did exist. It was his study of theoretical physics which changed him from a non-believer into a believer in God and it was the perfection of the revealed truth of Islam in the Qur’an and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that resulted in him becoming a Muslim almost twenty five years ago. Before he became a Muslim he gave years of serious study to all of the world’s major religions and found that no other religion but Islam offered him the opportunity to remain both an objective scientist, and a true believer in God. Allah has indeed Blessed him greatly by His guidance.
Professor Muhammad al'Mahdi passed away on 29th April 2006 after battling cancer for over 2 years. May Allah have Mercy on his soul and place him among the righteous.
I am forced by unforeseen circumstances in my life to offer this plan for the creation of a much better world a year or two earlier than I had anticipated. I have been preparing and perfecting this work for about 35 years, and by the mercy of Allah, it has recently reached the point where it is so logically true, so appealing to those that hear it, and so successful in practice that it could no longer be doubted that this plan could and (InshaAllah) will make today’s world, facing so many terrible problems, into a world of peace, love and spirituality as Allah would want us to have.
The unforeseen circumstance I refer to is that I have recently been diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer. I now have only a few months left in this world. I, of course, accept this as the Will of Allah and feel blessed that I at least have been given these last few months to offer this lifework to the Muslim Ummah and to all of human society.
I spent over half my life as one of the most committed atheists you could ever imagine. I was totally convinced of the rightness of secular philosophies and materialist science. I spent over thirteen years as a full time university student. These long years of study included three Ph.D. programs. My early studies were in theoretical physics and my later studies were in child and clinical psychology.
I had never expected in my wildest imaginings that I would ever be a believer in God, and even more unexpected, that I would become a Muslim. About 30 years ago I decided that if I wanted to be honest as a scientist I would have to accept that the findings of modern science, particularly theoretical physics and cosmology, led undeniably to the conclusion that God did indeed exist.
In a search for a religion which I could be a member of and remain an objective scientist I looked first at Christianity, then Buddhism, and then the Hindu faiths. In none of those great faiths could I find a place for my understanding of God and spirituality. I almost didn’t look at Islam, perhaps due to biases imposed growing up in a Western culture. As I read the Qur’an (English translation with commentary) I found Islam confirming everything I had independently found to be true in my long search for the true nature of our reality.
I have now been a Muslim for about 25 years and have studied Islam with the same objective scrutiny I applied to any other subject. These years of study have only served to further establish the deep truth and rightness of the glorious religion given to us by Allah as our way of life. The theology and metaphysics of Islamic revelation and the enlightened interpretation of the early great Muslim scholars is now almost daily being further confirmed by the findings of modern empirical science and logic.
I am soon to face the Judgment of Allah so I would not be so foolish as to tell you anything but the truth. This plan to make right our world which is now plagued with so much wrong is based on the hypothesis that, “If you give any individual or social group a positive, accurate, and motivational worldview (Islam objectively and correctly understood), plus a good understanding of the Laws of Learning by which all human characteristics develop, that individual or social group will move naturally and inevitably toward everything good and right.
These two necessary bodies of socially transforming knowledge have been formulated and are now available. In their whole these bodies of knowledge are quite complex and not always easily understood, but what is required to put them into practice at a level which is simple enough for anyone to successfully apply and have significant positive results can be learned by virtually anyone in an amazingly short period of time.
Although the ultimate goal of this plan of positive social transformation is to alter the consciousness of human society in such a way as to result in individuals who will have a good understanding of the difference between right and wrong and a burning love in their heart for all that is right and a strong dislike for all that is wrong, to achieve such an ambitious goal is far to large a first step in our progression toward a much better world than we have today.
Progress toward that idealized goal of a much better world must take place in a slow and practical manner which guarantees the success of the first steps toward all that is good and right. To this end we offer a beginning solution to the world’s many problems that is so simple and so easy to put into practice you might find it hard to believe how much success can be had for so little effort.
Since virtually every nation is suffering from the problems caused by the fast deteriorating behavior of their youth, problems such as drugs, crime, violence, sexual immorality, a general lack of positive values, declining motivation, and a feeling of hopelessness for their future, we have begun by providing parents and teachers with a very simple method to help them raise children of excellent character who can succeed academically, socially, and professionally in today’s world without losing their traditional Islamic beliefs and practices.
I give you my guarantee that if you try these simple, easy to learn techniques you cannot fail to see positive changes in your children. This, for a successful beginning, is all you need do:
1.Find several different ways each day to remind your child that they are Khalifah of Allah.
2.Take the opportunity, a number of times each day, to give positive attention (warm praise) to your child for any good things they do or good characteristics they show.
3.Set firm, reasonable rules for your child, make sure your child understands those rules, and enforce those rules consistently with “kind” discipline (this means without harshness).
