Replies to ‘Idolators’!

11 May

Replies to Idolators:
As we saw earlier, idol worshiping is not favored by most of the religions. After all they are condemning it. But wherever you go, you see people worshiping created things (idols) as if they are worshiping the GOD.

The most common excuse they have is, “It’s hard to worship the unseen God.

“So, this allows you to worship something other than God?”
“Why is it hard for you when it is not hard for ‘billions’ of people?”

Another thing they say is, “God is present everywhere. Everything is God. We worship God through His creations”.

“Whoa! Worshipping God through His creations? Why do you need this ‘through’? It doesn’t seem logical?
Why can’t you worship God directly?
And again as I have said earlier in the post ‘Is Everything God?’ we can conclude “Everything is God’s” and everything is NOT God.

Anyways, worshiping the Creations doesn’t mean you worship the Creator. It simply means, ‘You worship the Creations‘!”. [And you know that’s wrong]

Again they say, “No no, it’s not the stone we worship. Its God present inside the stone”.

“This is another version of the previous question. God can never be inside a stone which is one of His creations”

“You see, we don’t worship all stones, only special kind of stones. Also gold, silver, brass”.

“You are in a very dangerous position you know. You are more special than a gold or a silver or a brass, aren’t you? So we worship YOU?

What is the authenticity of your practices? If we read your scriptures we find exactly the opposite. So where do you get these things from? From some stupid man or from God?”

“Ok fine, idol worship has no basis in our religion, its wrong. But.. common people can’t worship God without an image. It helps to focus our concentration. When we get trained we don’t need that image. Like in school, in 1st grade you have an idol but when you finish your final grade you don’t need an idol”.

“That’s good atleast you realize its wrong.

Just because a layman cannot worship God without an image, is it ok for him to worship something other than God?

To focus our concentration, there are numerous things we can do, but an idol can never help you. Infact it leads to destruction.

      How many people know what they are worshipping is not God?
      How many people know they have been cheated n cheated for centuries saying that this is their God?

And coming back to the school :D,
    You will not teach your child something wrong in 1st grade and then say he will be corrected later. Would you teach him 2+2=3 in 1st grade and then say its 4 in his final class? Ofcourse not!  

      Then why would you do this to God, the very most important thing in life?
How many people really reach that final stage?
They die in that evil state worshipping a stone, believing it to be the God for all their life. Its sorrowful.”

{Idol worship, the nearest analogy I can provide you is like calling someone else as one’s father, while his real father is another person. Rejection of one’s father and attributing this very honorable position to another person is a very disgraceful, abominable and disgusting thing any human being will think of doing.

The only one true God is the Creator, Sustainer, Cherisher and Provider. It is He only deserves our worship.

If we make idols of human beings, animals and other created objects, for the purpose of worship, my simple question is, do we earn the Blessings or the Wrath of God?

This is the unpardonable sin any human being can commit. The seriousness of this sin will not equal the analogy provided above.} [1]

Lets get rid of such sins, stop0think!

God Inside OR Outside?

26 Apr

 

God Inside or Outside?

       Nowadays, we getta common reply from people, “God is no where outside. He is now here ‘inside me’. I just need to realize Him within myself and thats the purpose of life.”

I dont understand whether they know what they are speaking about?!

 Lemme try to make them know/realize.

Well..to me.. those who say ‘No God’ and those who say ‘God inside me’ are the same.

The former denies God because of his ignorance and the later denies God even after knowing His presence.

          Yep..the second group knows there is a God. Their knowledge will never comfort them denying Him. So what they do, “Ok..God is there bt let him be there ‘inside me'”.

Hmm…

Lemme ask 4 questions to them,

Is God inside you? meaning Are You God?

1. My God created this world and whats inside in it. Bring me another world IF YOU CAN?

2. My God makes the sun to rise from the east. Make it rise from west IF YOU CAN?

3. Try to stop the ‘soul’ which my God takes away..IF YOU CAN?

4. Ehh..juz create a ‘house-fly’ like the one which my God created?

Afterall, you cant even create a ‘house-fly’ and YOU ARE GOD? YOU HAVE GOD INSIDE YOURSELF?

WHATS YOUR EXPLANATION OF GOD IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Unless and untill these kinda ‘evil thoughts’ are erased, there will be people ‘DENYING GOD’.

Islaam just plucks it ‘from its root’!

Two things you need to knw in Islam:

Point 1:

     The CREATOR is NOT EQUAL to the CREATIONS.

There is a ‘clear’ ‘distinct’ difference between the Creator and His Creations.

Both will have its similarities ‘only’ in ‘wordings’.

For example:

I see and my God sees.

But for me to see, I need eyes, light. Eventhough if I hv them, I can see only a limited distance.

But my God dont need an eye ‘like us’, no need of light and His vision comprises ‘everything’.

Nothing can escape His sight.

He knows what enters this earth and what leaves it!

“He knows that which goes into the earth and that which comes forth from it, and that which descend from the heaven and that which ascends to it. And He is the Most Merciful, the OftForgiving.” [AlQur’aan Chapter Sheba 34:2]

             Because of this we dont worship, ‘man-made’ idols.

Wherever we see, people make God as ‘humans’ or ‘animals’.

Definitely, Islam saves people from the ‘evil’ of worshiping the ‘Creations’.

Point 2:

THE CREATOR WILL NOT BE INSIDE HIS CREATIONS.

Because of this, we NEVER say God is inside a stone, God is inside a tree, God is inside a cow, God is inside you, God is inside me.

All these are the creations of God. God will not be there inside His creations. If there, then He is not a God.

          And because we say God is inside us, some will say, “No God is more inside me than You. SO WORSHIP ME” (??!!)

     YOU GOT THE EVIL WHICH IT ENDS UP WITH?

Just a small thought,

We decay inside this earth when we die. Then what happens to the God inside us? He decays too?

    We believe, God will put some of us into Hell. This means God puts Himself into Hell?

I will NOT attribute sucha ‘disgusting‘ thing to my God. I ask His protection !

      

Dont look God as an INTERNAL ATTRIBUTE or as an INTERNAL CHARACTERISTIC. He is OUTSIDE us..He is an EXTERNAL ENTITY…. AN EVER LIVING EXTERNAL ENTITY!

When there was ‘nothing’ HE WAS THERE!

When everything will be destroyed ‘to nothing’, ONLY HE WILL BE THERE!

“And do not invoke any other diety with Allah. There is no deity worthy of worship except Him. Everything will be destroyed except His Face. His is the judgement, and to Him you will be returned.” [AlQur’aan Chapter The Stories 28:88]

These two points are ‘life vein’ of Islaam.

These two points makes Islaam ‘distinct’ from other religions.

Finally, I will say what Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him) said,

Indeed, I have turned my face toward He who created the heavens and the earth, inclining toward truth, and I am not of those who associate others with Allah.” [AlQur’aan Chapter: The Cattle 6:79]

Can God instill ‘Fear’?

2 Apr

 

 

Can God instill fear?

         I got a response from one of the readers regarding the picture in my post ‘Are You A ‘Diest’?’

        The response was, “God should not instill fear. He should be a loving God.”

 

 Thank you for your response my Reader!

Your comments make me go better n better!

 

First of all, a God should not be deprived of anything. He should have every quality.

 

If He is just showing love, He is lacking an attribute of anger.

If He is just an angry God, He will not be a God anymore.

 

So He should instill both fear and love.

In addition He should instill hope too.

 

Fear because if you do mistakes, God will punish you.

Hope because if you repent to Him, God will forgive you.

Love because if He forgives you, He will reward you too, if He wills it.

 

Quote by Ibn al-Qayyim: “The heart is like a bird: love at its head and its two wings are hope and fear.”

There should be a right balance between them.

 

We should fear our Lord my reader! We should fear that we will be punished if we do bad deeds. We should fear the Hell fire. Otherwise you do whatever you want and all bad deeds and no fear and you are gone…

 

This is not an unnatural thing my reader! You yourself want God to be angry with the one who killed innocent people. Don’t you?

 

You want God to punish the man who did something evil to your loved ones. Don’t you?

 

This is from our inner soul, we need God to show love and at times we need Him to be angry too.. (ofcourse not with us..lol)

 

But don’t worry; God’s love is muchhh moreee than His anger.

 

Our God says: “My mercy precedes My wrath”. [famous hadith Qudsi]

So we need Him to instill fear, hope and love.

Note:

Just because I say, “God should instill fear too”..that doesnt mean that He is not a loving God anymore.

Ofcourse He is a loving God, He loves His creations, He loves to forgive His creations.

What you are saying is, “A loving God should not instill fear.”

What I am saying is, “A loving God should not be deprived of anything. He instills fear too!”

 

Think you will get what I mean!

Stop0think!

Is Love God?

29 Mar

 

Is Love God?

 

       Today basically there are two kinds of people, one who says Nature is God and the other one says Love is God.

 

It is easy to correct the one who is saying Love is God because they believe in God. But they err in naming Him.

 

I asked someone, why do you say Love is God?

 

“Why not? God tells us to show love right?” <–This was the reply.

 

Inturn I will ask you a question,

 

“You are telling me to eat well. Can I say that food is you?”

 

“God tells us to show love. How can you say God is Love?”

 

God commands us to love your parents, family, children, neighbours etc. But that doesn’t mean He is Love. Love is one of His attributes.

 

Those who claim that love is God because God tells us to show love, are you really obeying Him?

 

Ask yourself, ARE YOU REALLY OBEYING HIM??

Truly, you are not!!

 

It is impossible to show love to each and everything in this dunya (world).

 

If you see a snake, you kill it.

 

Don’t you beat the burglar who robes in your house?

 

You can’t show love everywhere. You can show love only in those places where it suits best.

 

God is same too. He shows love to whom it suits best. He punishes those who deserve it.

 

But our God says: “My mercy precedes My wrath”. [famous hadith Qudsi]

 

{Hadith generally means ‘Statements of Prophet Muhammad (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam)

Hadith Qudsi is a hadith in which Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) says, “Allah says …so n so..”. So it is a statement of Allah, a strong hadith}

 

 Definitely God’s mercy is manifest in everything. HE SHOWS MERCY TO THOSE WHO DENY HIM TOO!!

 

BUT THAT WILL NOT BE AN EVERLASTING MERCY IF YOU TRULY KNOW!!!

 

So it is not logic to say Love is God or Hatred is God. Love, Anger are all attributes of God.

 

TO NOTE: Whenever you say something is God,

 

1. Check whether it is logic or not.

2. Check whether it is contradictory or not.

3. Check whether your mind and soul can accept it or not.

 

Most concepts of God doesn’t fulfill these points and this is the reason why most people deny Religions totally.

 

Some people worship milestones on road side and neem trees which grow on waste water as God!!

 

This is the reason why thinking people deny God when they surely know the above one cannot be a God!!

 

BUT THERE IS A GOD WHICH SUITS ALL THESE 3 POINTS AND MORE ..MY DEAR READERS!!!

 

YOU HAVE TO IDENTIFY HIM.. YOU HAVE TO KNOW HIM!!

 

When you want to know Him, don’t give place to your emotions like,

 

“Oh! My mom will be upset”

“No! My dad will not speak with me”

“Ah! My family will ignore me”

 

IF YOU FEEL THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG IN THE CONCEPT OF GOD YOU HAVE BEEN TAUGHT.. JUST THROW IT OUT..

 

GIVE PRIORITY TO YOUR BRAIN AND INTELLIGENCE.

 

Because,

 

GOD IS SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT IN EACH AND EVERYONE’S LIFE.

 

 

If you fail to find the right answer for “WHO IS YOUR LORD?” there is NO SUCCESS HEREAFTER.

 

If you can find the RIGHT ANSWER for “WHO IS YOUR GOD?” the rest of your life goes smoothly.

 

YOU ARE THE SUCCESOR OF SUCCESSORS.

 

I bid you happy ‘THINKING’.

 

STOP 0 THINK!!!!!!!
