Knowledge Of The Unseen

Q 31:34 reads:

Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).

Now we know some of these things. Does this prove the Qur’an wrong?

Required Expertise For The Islamic Scholars

I have two questions. I have read books by Mr Ghamidi and other renowned scholars and I have come to a conclusion that if you don’t have a reasonable understanding of Arabic language you cannot base your own ideology or conformity of belief, regarding the meanings of Qur’an. At the same time we must appreciate that no one today can allocate time to learn Arabic in its true form and good teachers are also not available. Secondly to understand Qur’an in this context is obviously of very worth but it’s a full time job. Also as you people are doing and every one cannot go up to that level due to limitations of time job and circumstances. Your belief regarding Islam is that it is a divine religion but this belief is not spoon fed as ours you found the truth to make your belief. Now you tell me that one person doing job running his family cannot allocate that much time so how it is possible to find the truth only relying on your literary books and conflicting opinions. Regarding translation and commentary on the Qur’an every scholar has his viewpoint but again that viewpoint is based on research. Does the Qur’an require spending whole life to find the truth only or not? How can an ordinary man realize in true sense that Islam is a divine religion?

My question relates to conflict on the matter of Ahadith. This dispute has given birth to different sects. Everyone has its own set of Ahadith to rely upon and everyone has its own chain of intermediaries who quoted that ahadith. This attitude makes one hadith correct and other wrong in the same time. I have read your article which is very helpful also but my point of view is that a man can on his own conscience judge the truthfulness of hadith?
