The Basic Premise of the Religion
The author of this article, Jāvēd Ahmad Ghamidi writes:
“The basic premise of religion is that this world has a creator; He has created
this world as a trial; thus He has sent man in this world for a specific period
of time; at the conclusion of this period, this world will necessarily end and
its earth and heavens shall be replaced by a new earth and new heavens; a new
world will then come into being. All mankind shall be raised up there and shall
be rewarded or punished on the basis of their beliefs and deeds.”
In this article, he presents certain arguments that attempt
