‘Image’ of God in Islaam!

15 May

‘Image’ of God according to Islam:

           We discussed the images of God according to various religious scriptures. You might think, “Okay, where is Islam there?”
You need to wait no longer to know the answer!

We saw some scriptures saying “God has no image at all” and we might realize those people worship “infinite number of images”.
As Islam is the ‘middle way’. It takes a middle approach in this too.

God has an image THAT IS SUITABLE TO HIS MAJESTY.
There are numerous verses in His Last Book saying that He has hand, eyes, shin etc etc.
Lemme quote a few,


Say: “All the bounty is in the Hand of Allah; He grants to whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, the All-Knower.” [AlQur’an Chapter ‘The Family of Imran’ 3:73]

Say: “O Allah! Possessor of the kingdom, You give the kingdom to whom You will, and You take the kingdom from whom You will, and You endue with honour whom You will, and You humiliate whom You will. In Your Hand is the good. Verily, You are Able to do all things.” [AlQur’an Chapter ‘The Family of Imran’ 3:26]

“And construct the ship under Our Eyes and with Our Inspiration, and address Me not on behalf of those who did wrong; they are surely to be drowned.”  [AlQur’an Hud 11:37]

“Some faces that Day shall be shining and radiant. Looking at their Lord.”  [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Resurrection’ 75:22,23]

God unveiling His shin to the believers+hypocrites in the Day of Judgement,

“(Remember) the Day when the Shin shall be uncovered (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) and they shall be called to prostrate (to Allah), but they (hypocrites) shall not be able to do so,” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Pen’ 68:42]

In Sahih AlBukhari  (Book #93, Hadith #510),
Narrated ‘Abdullah: “A Jew came to the Prophet and said, “O Muhammad! Allah will hold the heavens on a finger, and the mountains on a finger, and the trees on a finger, and all the creation on a finger, and then He will say, ‘I am the King.’ “ On that Allah’s Prophet smiled till his premolar teeth became visible, and then recited:–
“They have not appraised Allah with true appraisal, while the earth entirely will be [within] His grip on the Day of Resurrection, and the heavens will be folded in His right hand. Exalted is He and high above what they associate with Him.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Groups’ 39:67]
‘Abdullah added: “Allah’s Messenger smiled (at the Jew’s statement) expressing his wonder and believe in what was said.” 

Allah’s laugh (Book #73, Hadith #245) and Allah’s foot (Book #60, Hadith #371) are also mentioned in Sahih AlBukhari.

          

            Being said that, I would strongly mention that THIS WOULD NEVER GIVE US PERMISSION TO MAKE IMAGES OF GOD!

Why?
Because God has said,

There is nothing like a likeness of Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.”  [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘Consultation’ 42:11]

See, THE IMAGE OF GOD HAS NO LIKENESS TO HIS CREATIONS.

       This is not something hard to understand. Just because we and our God has an image that doesn’t mean both should look the same!
Like, we have a leg and a donkey has a leg. Both are called ‘leg’, BUT THEY DON’T RESEMBLE THE SAME!

Whatever we make as God will have a likeness to what we have seen. We cannot make something which we don’t see.
Whatever we make will have a similitude in the creations of this world. For example: A unicorn is a mixture of animals (lion tail, goat’s beard, deer’s feet, horse body, twisted horn etc).
See, we make fantasy with all those animals.

       HOW CAN WE DO THIS TO GOD, THE ONE WHO CREATED ALL THESE THINGS?

Just Remember, whatever we imagine as God, IS EXACTLY WHAT HE ISN’T!
    Because, THERE IS NOTHING LIKE HIM 🙂

So based on the above quotes, we AFFIRM, God has an image THAT SUITS HIS MAJESTY.
And also we DENY, we shouldn’t make any images of the God which we haven’t seen?

WAIT A MINUTE: CAN GOD BE SEEN?

                  Aha! Scratch your head until tomorrow! 😀

Are Muslims DisOrganised?!

23 Mar

 

                                              ARE  MUSLIMS  DISORGANISED?

 ESTAWOO = Arrange yourselves

THIS IS REALLY TRUE..!! 

 In the program called (ONE FAMILY) on MAJD channel.

The speaker was Dr.Yahya Alyahya (head of the CALL to Islam Committee)

 He said that Muslims are never disorganized; they just need to be CONVINCED.

THEN HE TOLD A STORY OF AN AMERICAN NON MUSLIM MAN WHO WAS DISCUSSING ABOUT ISLAM WITH HIM WHILE HE WAS WATCHING LIVE .ON BROADCAST OF SALAT ISHA FROM KAABAH, ON TV

The American man was so amazed of how crowded is the masjid, more than 3 million Muslims were there at the last nights of the holy month of Ramadan, so crowded, so disorganized.

……                                                                                                                                       

                                                                                                                               

The sheikh asked the Non-Muslim man: How long do you think they’ll take to organize themselves in rows and start the Salaat?

He answered: at least 2-3 hours

The sheikh said: but the masjid (HARAM) of Kaaba is 4 floors

The man said: OH, this’s will make it about 12 hours then

 

 

  The sheikh said: put in your mind that they are from countries all over the world with different languages.

 The American man said: THEN IT’s IMPOSSIBLE TO ORGANIZE THEM BY ANY MEANS!!

Then the Salaat time came, and sheikh Sudais of Makkah stood up and said

 (ESTAWOO)=Arrange

 yourselves

  And within seconds, the whole scene changed and the crowd of 3 million Muslims arranged themselves in well-organized rows in NO TIME !!

                                                                                                                                                                                                          

The American man stared at the TV screen for a moment, and then said:

 

 

ASHASH-HADU AN LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH

 

 

WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOHAMMADAN  RASOOLOLLAH.

 

 
(I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship

 

 

 but ALLAH, and I bear witness that Mohammad is

 

 

 His Servant and Messenger)
 
 

“O Allaah grant a good end to all our matters and save us from humiliation in the world and the punishment of the Hereafter.” (Sunan Ahmed)
