This is a video showing people who are colorblind wearing special glasses allowing them to see color for the first time in their lives.

Imagine, if this is the reaction of a person seeing the beauty of the creation for the first time, what of the Creator? May Allah bless us all to see His Face in Jannah.

سبحان الله وبحمده، سبحان الله العظيم

You don't have to be Einstein to recognise the Zionist state as a terrorist operation, but it helps.

Part two of the consciousness discussion on TAP.

Consciousness is one of the biggest challenges to materialism - the idea that reality can be reduced to materialistic interactions of fundamental physical substances.

Consciousness though seems to escape this particular paradigm. There seems to be more than matter that is required for an explanation for the phenomena called consciousness. This conclusion on the face of it might seem trivial but it has real implications not least of which is that it destroys atheism on a reductive materialistic paradigm.

However materialists try to fight back and claim with more research in this area we will discover that consciousness is a product of materialism. They thus try and provide various explanations from functionalism, emergentism to the edges of what maybe considered materialism like panpsychism.

So could these explanations provide answers to consciousness with more research or are they doomed to fail because they are still fundamentally stuck with an in principle problem?

Tomorrow’s show will look at these and other questions and features Brother Hamza Hamza Andreas Tzortzis who has his masters in the subject of the hard problem of consciousness.

There will also be opportunity for call ins too.

Indeed, the righteous will be amid Gardens and springs.
˹It will be said to them,˺ “Enter in peace and security.”
We will remove whatever bitterness they had in their hearts. In a friendly manner, they will be on thrones, facing one another.
No fatigue will touch them there, nor will they ever be asked to leave.
Inform My servants ˹O Prophet˺ that I am truly the All-Forgiving, Most Merciful,
and that My torment is indeed the most painful.

“Inform My servants ˹O Prophet˺ that I am truly the All-Forgiving, Most Merciful” (15:49)
