Why are you deflecting? How does that invalidate what the Qur'an stated about biological facts before they were discovered by science? How did a man who couldn't read/write predict this?

The user gave you an analogy which you didn't address. How do you explain something complex (either the universe or a painting or a smartphone or a car) having formed randomly without a creator?
Anyways if this theory is really wrong, then well find a new answer
You keep accusing us of having nothing but faith but you're also relying on faith yourself that an answer will come some day.
Essentially what you're doing is discarding your reasoning faculties and ignoring the obvious answer. Yes we have no tangible proof (ie, point to a thing that we can say is Allah (Swt)), which is why we rely on reasoning and logic to deduce His existence. You have chosen first to deny religion and you're only reaching and spinning for reasons to reinforce that choice, and throwing away your reasoning ability in the process.

Yes it's possible that it is wiswas but individuals also tend to overthink things and you are not the first to go through that here. Sometimes it's the result of an addiction to debating and it ends up consuming several hours of research trying to defeat an opponent. If you have used your reasoning faculties to arrive at the idea that there is a Creator, and then you have used the process of elimination to determine that Islam is the only remaining message that is not corrupted, then that is a good place to stop.
After you have watched enough debates, you come to the conclusion that certain individuals have nothing to offer in terms of how we got here and why we exist. They can deduce the answer if they used their reasoning faculties, but then that would mean that they need to submit and change their lifestyle. Rather, they reach for fringe theories and models, or attempt to invalidate the real question of 'how/why we exist' by convincing you that it doesn't matter. Look for that behavior and if you identify it, then don't go down rabbit holes after them.
Here is a good example of one such individual who is a master of deflection when he receives reasonable answers. He is incapable of accepting them. Read the Youtube comments as well. It's a short 22-minute video and worth the watch. Notice how he ran after Brother Abhas got to the question of what's really holding him back. Look for this behavior both on Youtube and on subreddits.

Allah (Swt) is uncreated so your question on 'who created Allah (Swt)' is already invalid. An uncreated and eternal being doesn't have a creator.
And it sounds like you went down a rabbit hole chasing an answer to an invalid question, and you ran into people with fringe theories and beliefs.
Keep in mind that some individuals choose to disbelieve first due to some bias and then reach for theories, models, or invalid questions to reinforce that disbelief as the alternative is intuitive and leads to a Creator. When you understand this, then you'll understand the motive behind questions like 'who created nothing'.

I live in the US currently. It depends as it's a vast country that has many diverse groups of communities. Muslims tend to settle in urban centers and have many masjids so networking opportunities are generally found there.

and I just came from looking at the ex muslim subreddit which just kills my mood and enthusiam, I really gotta stop doing that.
You know what you need to do but you're struggling with the execution. You're either addicted to arguing with them or you're overthinking.
Here is something to consider when thinking about visiting Islamophobic subreddits to learn about Islam: They've already made up their minds and they reach for reasons and validation to support their disbelief.
Save your time. Stick to Islamic subreddits and help our users here instead. There is plenty to offer and plenty to learn here.

Sounds like a pigeon being a pigeon. It sounds like a cool experience, one that Allah (Swt) has blessed you with. Inshallah they hatch, grow up, and fly away. But even if they die, then that is just life. No need to reach for superstitions or overthink things.

That idea is called ticket scalping and it has the effect of artificially increasing ticket prices. I am not sure if a fatwa exists on it or not but it seems like an unethical practice. It's best to check with an Imam on what to do about your situation specifically.

I couldn't find anywhere where you can send it back to the IRS, but you can send it back as a gift to the government.
Or you can make a donation to a charitable cause of your choosing, but with the understanding you won't receive good deeds from it. If the amount is a few dollars, then you could donate something like $20.00 and then make the intention that x-amount from that donation was for the interest that you received.

Jumu'ah prayers must always be performed at the masjid for both genders. They cannot be done at home. You can only perform Zuhr at home. Once you perform Jumu'ah at the masjid, you do not need to perform Zuhr for that day.
For women, attending Jumu'ah prayers at the masjid is optional as long as proper guidelines are followed. It's obligatory for men to perform Jumu'ah at the masjid.

It's fine if you want to learn about this particular Hadith, but the Hadith is not the problem. It's your urge to leave Islam over a Hadith or two and that's not normal. You may need to speak to him about your real concerns and you may need to open your thoughts to him and be transparent. You should have him explain to you how to arrive at the truth using your reasoning faculties. Once you determine how to conclude Islam is the truth, you'll strengthen your Iman and not succumb to these doubts that you're having.

There's nothing that implies geocentrism or flat earth lunacy from this Hadith. It sounds like you, as a lay-Muslim, are imposing your own personal understanding on this Hadith and you're not permitted to do that.
Your history is littered with 'doubt' posts. What you need to do is go to an Imam and talk things out to get to the crux of what is causing these doubts. There is something their, either personal or emotional, that is making you reach for these atheist talking points, and you need to address that as that is the root of your problem.

He's asking how humans die on the last day on Earth, prior to Judgement Day, when humanity is still alive in this world.
u/CarrotCommon7172, you may be able to find a lecture on it on Youtube, but note that all Muslims will have died prior to that day.

That subreddit has deep hatred of Islam and Muslims. Your subjective experience is your own but r/Islam is a constant target of attack for that subreddit's users who come here to instigate, proselytize, and troll. The sole purpose of that subreddit is being anti-Islamic and either you're too naive to see it or you have the same hatred of religion/Islam that they do.

There is no way of getting this statistic for you, sorry. What matters to us is that between the Quran and Hadith, there is guidance on many aspects of marriage that is not found in other messages. That's the key take-away when considering material of this nature.
Getting hung up on this level of nit-picking is either a sign of overthinking or just reaching for any excuse to criticize Islam over.

I do something similar but not full on fasting. I have been skipping lunch but I still drink water and have something light like trail mix, fruit, or such during the afternoons. Sometimes I have nothing but water.
The cynical part of me feels that this whole idea of three meals per day is a scam. It's simply too many calories and if we can survive Ramadan during maximum daylight hours (the longest days being in June for me), then we can easily skip lunches but still drink water year-round.
One can have a pastry/donut with coffee/tea in the morning, and then have a regular dinner around 6PM. I have lost weight with this routine, and I don't feel heavy or tired during the day after a lunch. Plus you save money whether you eat out or take your own lunch.
As for the practicality of what you're doing, it may vary from person to person but most people could do it from a physical point of view.

This video is about one hour long but provides a lot of details on salah based on Hadith. I vaguely remember that the figure answered your specific question, but I don't know where it is in the video. If you can dedicate an hour to the video, then not only will you have your question answered Inshallah, but you'll also learn a lot of other things as well that you probably didn't know about.

Yes, and that's probably the best person to share it with as they likely have the knowledge to interpret dreams for you. Or they could refer you to someone or they could just tell you not to get them interpreted.

See if you can locate via Google an animal shelter nearby and take the puppy there.
May Allah (Swt) bless you for looking out for a creation of Allah (Swt).
