‘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! 😀

To A ‘So-Called’ Muslim ‘Jihaadist’!

13 Apr

 

To A ‘So-Called’ Muslim ‘Jihaadist’!

            I saw a blog named ‘Jih@d’, the very first post i saw there was titled Rap song ‘Make Jihad with me’.
It turned my eyes reddd & boiled my blood.

First lemme post what kinda lyrics were they,

“Send me a cruise like Maa’lam Adam al Ansari
And send me a couple of tons like Zarqawi
And send me a drone like Abu Laith al Libi
And Special Forces like Saleh Ali Nabhani

Send me all four and send me much much more
I pray for that on my way to heavens door
Send me four and send me more, that what I implore
An amazing martyrdom I strive for and adore

There’s nothing as sweet as the taste of a tank shell
But it could be compared to being where the mortar fell
But all that could be seen as tasteless
Compared to smart bombs falling when they don’t miss

It was a beautiful day, when that predator paradise missile sent me on my way
A one way ticket with no stops or delays, no problems in the grave nor fear on that day
Or better yet send me a cruise, and send me on a cruise
Family rejoices at the news and follows me in what I do

I profess and strive against those who oppress and transgress
I obsess not depress for martyrdom success
Make Jihad With Me

Allahu Akbar Give Some More Bounty
Attack America Now!
Martyrdom or Victory
We take it Nairobi to Addis – Paradise Inside
Khilafah is here!

We are wiping Israel clear off the globe!”

You finally made it here after the long wait
You enter the training camp and study the din
You officially join the Mujahidin
You attack the kuffar where they oppress and stand
And the allies too to free the Muslim land
And implement Sharia – that´s our goal
To spread Allah´s word to every home
With you or without you Islam will succeed
Take part in the reward – Make Jihad with me!”

U can understand why I turned red after seeing that ‘A Muslim’ wrote this!!

            If you are this kind of ‘Jihadist’…I am asking you

  • ARE YOU A MUSLIM?

  • IS THIS JIHAAD?

  • IS THIS THE JIHAAD WHICH OUR QUR’AAN PRESCRIBES?

  • IS THIS THE JIHAAD WHICH OUR BELOVED PROPHET DID?

  • IS THIS JIHAAD?

You drop bombs and kill innocent people and say THIS IS JIHAAD?
You take the Qur’aanic verses out of context and say THIS IS JIHAAD?

         Why don’t you take the Qur’aanic verse which says,

  
“Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaa’idah 5:32]

Are you sure your bombs are killing only oppressing people??

Are you sure u kill no innocent ones??

     YOU LIER!! You kill people who don’t even heard the word ‘Islaam’.  You kill people who don’t even met a single Muslim.
     Their first introduction to Muslims is, they are terrorists..

INDEED WHAT A BAD INTRODUCTION!
        ALL THIS IS BECAUSE OF YOU!! YESSS YOU..WHO UNDERSTOOD JIHAAD IN A WRONG WAY..
        YOU WHO REPELLED PEOPLE FROM ISLAAM!

IS THIS HOW OUR PROPHET MADE JIHAAD?
        Are you sure you suffered more the THE MERCY OF MANKIND and more than HIS BELOVED COMPANIONS?

       They forgave people, they forgaveee the sinners.. THEN WHY DON’T YOU?

They forgave Hind and an Abyssinian slave Washi Ibn al-Harb who killed Hamza (radhi allaahu anhu).

He was ASADULLAAH..THE LION OF ALLAAH.. THE UNCLE OF THE PROPHET (SAL ALLAAHU ‘ALAIHI WA SALLAM).

Washi killed Hamza and Hind took out his liver and bit it!

         But our Prophet forgave them when they embraced Islam!! ISLAAM FORGAVE THEM!! Islam erased ALL THEIR PAST SINSS!!

What made Hind and Washi to accept Islaam? Was that Jihaad?
       Nooo.. it was PEACE which made them accept Islam, it was the true divinity which made them accept it!

What was the manner of Prophet (sal allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) when fighting?

Hadith 1.584 Narrated by Humaid (Radhiallah hu Taala anhu)

Anas bin Malik said, “Whenever the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) went out with us to fight (in Allah’s cause) against any nation, he never allowed us to attack till morning and he would wait and see: if he heard Adhan he would postpone the attack.

Subhaanallaah.. adhan will avert them from fighting..Why? Because it indicates there are Muslims living in that area..!!!

      Look how Islaam protects the life of a human being who worships his Creator ALONE!!

    Now you! Are you sure ur public bombs don’t kill any Muslims???

What abt 9/11 attack?? What abt Mumbai attack in India?? Are you sure no Muslim died there bcoz of YOU??

     You killed Muslims and you say you are a Jihadist and YOU ENTER PARADISE???

SHAME ON YOU!!!

   Even in war our Prophet will not attack without informing..both armies will be prepared.. only if the opposite side betrayed any treaty he (sal allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) will publicly declare war and they are under danger of ‘any time attack’.

    But now! You go around markets and public places and kill people who came there to get something for their life!

    You kill people who are simply innocent and who never ever raised their finger against you!

       AND YOU SAY ISLAM TAUGHT YOU THIS?? YOU LOSER!

Even in fighting there are certain etiquettes.. Islam teaches you manners in every aspect of life,

• Do not betray any agreements you have entered into.
• Do not plunder.
• Do not commit injustices or use torture.
• Do not touch the children, the womenfolk, the elderly, or other non-combatants of the enemy.
• Do not destroy fruit-trees and tilled lands.
• Do not kill livestock.
• Treat with respect the religious persons who live in hermitages or convents and spare their edifices.

(Ibn al-Athir, al-Kami fi al-Tarikh, Vol.3, p.227)

Try to follow these principles..if not THROUGH YOUR SWORD AWAY!

  What did our Prophet say when he got back his home town Makkah?

        Did he say, “You people..you drove me out of this city..you tortured me..you insulted me..you threw stones over me.. you made me starve without food..I’m gonna kill you all??”

        Did he say that? Did he ever say that?? What did he say??

“He who enters the Sacred Mosque will be SAFE, he who enters the house of Abu Sufyan will be SAFE, and he who shuts his doors upon himself will be SAFE.”

  Subhaanallah..NO DOUBT HE (SAL ALLAAHU ‘ALAIHI WA SALLAM) WAS THE MERCY OF MANKIND!!!!

The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) wanted to avoid bloodshed at all costs but you??? THINK IT OF YOURSELF!!

And did you know that FIGHTING AGAINST PEOPLE IS THE LOWEST FORM OF JIHAAD??

           Watch this video..

      Subhaanallaah..subhaanallaah..this video tells WHO IS THE TRUE WARRIOR!!

        It’s like Umar Mukhtar… the colonizers were all raping/killing and the Muslim army captures two of them as prisoners and one of the Muslim soldiers wants to just kill them. He raises his gun and Umar Mukhtar puts his hands over the rifle and pushes it down. “We do not kill prisoners” (an Islamic principle), he says. Well “*They* do it to *us*!” is the answer. Umar Mukhtar says,

“They” are not our *teachers*!

Yes!! Islam will succeed without you and me!

But this is not the kinda Jihaad to join with you!

“And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaa’idah 5:2]

And when talking abt the children of Israael, Allah says,

“And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them. But pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds]. Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaaidah 5:13]

Adam’s son said to his brother,

“If you should raise your hand against me to kill me – I shall not raise my hand against you to kill you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaaidah 5:28]

FEAR ALLAAH!! FEAR ALLAAH!!!

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!!!!!!!
