‘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! 😀

Do You Believe in ‘The BigBang Theory’?

31 Mar

 

Do you believe in BigBang theory?

      The Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe. It was first proposed in 1927 by a Belgian priest named George Lemaître. Scientists are developing it till date with all these technological developments and scientific equipments.

 

But can you believe that ‘some’ of these facts have already been revealed more 1400 years ago when there was no science?

 

I will help you to compare it,

 

From Nothing:

        Discoveries in astronomy and physics have shown beyond a reasonable doubt that our universe did in fact have a beginning. Prior to that moment there was nothing.

Has there not been over man a period of time, when he was nothing to be mentioned? [ AlQur’aan 76:1]

 

Hot Gaseous State:

        The universe was formed from a hot gaseous state.

“Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, “Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion.” They said, “We have come willingly.”” [AlQur’aan 41:11]

 

Infinitely small:

    Our universe is thought to have begun as an infinitely small, infinitely hot, infinitely dense.

“Have those who disbelieved not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?” [AlQur’aan 21:30]

Every living thing is made from water; this is another scientific miracle in AlQur’aan. You need to wait for a while to know more about this.

 

Expansion of Universe:

        The gases according to the scientific articles made “the universe is consisted of compact ball of hydrogen — protons, neutrons, electrons, and their anti-particles — plus radiation.  There were not differentiated planets, stars, suns, galaxies.   Five billion years ago, the compact hydrogen soup blasted apart with huge force, matter was hurled in all directions, and the universe doubled in size.  This expansion of the universe is still going on.

“And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.” [AlQur’aan 51:47]

WARNING: CONTAINS MUSIC

         An age where there was no science,

         A man who was an illiterate, but truthfull and trustworthy,

         uttered these 100% scientifically correct statements.

        He says “These are not my own words; these are the words of ‘Your’ Creator. I am only a plain WARNER”.

 

Are you still going to say these words are from an illiterate’s mind or these are the words of God?

These facts have been revealed in AlQur’aan when nobody knows it because THIS IS THE WORD OF GOD!

Are you still going to believe there is no God?

 

       Take a glass, throw it on the ground. It breaks into pieces. Can you find any two pieces looking same? Never.

Then how come this explosion and expansion took place without a Creator but still we have innumerable things around us looking the same?

 

Each thing around us has its own similarities and differences; indeed Glory is to the Creator.

Each has its own uniqueness; each has its own design.

DESIGN INDICATES A DESIGNER!!!

 

If you take different colours of paints and throw it on a wall, a picture will appear. But if there was a Monalisa picture then some one had drawn it, IT WILL NOT COME BY ITS OWN.

ART INDICATES AN ARTIST! CREATIONS INDICATE A CREATOR!

 

You make a table and chair, I say, “No, you didn’t make it. The tree exploded itself and transformed to a table and chair”. Won’t you get angry?

Then how can you expect that God will not get angry when you say all these things were created by itself while He is the ONE WHO CREATED THEM?

We don’t need to befall on His Anger my dear readers!

Lets realize there is a God and LETS MOVE TO THE NEXT STAGE!

Are You A ‘Darwinist’?

30 Mar

 

Do you believe in ‘Darwin Theory’?

                       Darwin theory attempts to explain the origin of life. But it fails in every step. The first step of creating the precursors of life from non-living chemicals has not been experimentally replicated.

 

Stage One:

        From inorganic to organic – from the gases which presumably surrounded earth to the simplest amino acids, containing about ten atoms, which are the most basic of the biochemical universals. Experimentally, Stanley Miller in the United States showed in 1953 that by passing an electric discharge through appropriate gases, surprisingly large amounts of amino acids were formed. The experiments are acknowledged as a major breakthrough in understanding how life got underway. Since then other essential chemicals have been synthesized.

         However until today five of the twenty amino acids common to all living beings have resisted human attempts to create them artificially.

 A Russian biochemist by the name of Alexsandr Oparin (1894-1980) [1] first proposed in 1924 a model of the atmosphere of the primitive earth free of oxygen (oxygen literally eats up any primitive organic chemicals such as amino acids) containing hydrogen, methane, ammonia and water. Life on earth is shielded from certain death due to ultraviolet cosmic rays by the ozone layer, which blankets the earth between fifteen and thirty miles above the surface.

         Without oxygen in the atmosphere of the primitive, there would have been no ozone layer and the first living organisms have been wiped out by cosmic layers, and with oxygen present, the first amino acid could have not been produced.

 Imaginative and elaborate solutions have been written to solve this riddle. But for every suggestion, there is an insurmountable objection.

 

Stage Two:

      Assuming that there was (around 4 million years ago) a sea with a 10% solution of amino acids, sugars, phosphates, and so on, two major steps have to take place simultaneously. Amino acids must link together to form proteins and other chemicals must join up to make nucleic acids, including the vital DNA.

   Proteins depend on DNA for their formation and DNA cannot form without pre-existing protein. Nor is it relatively easy chemistry. Proteins are highly complex molecules. Where an amino acid typically has ten atoms, a protein may have thousands.

 

Stage Three:

      The formation of the nucleus.

 

Stage Four:

      The formation of the cell wall. [2]

 

Hmm… man came from monkeys.

See monkeys do not bother about us. THEN WHY DO WE BOTHER ABOUT THEM?

 

‘Survival of the fittest’, then why do monkeys exists now?

They all must have become humans now!!

 

But from ‘Survival of the fittest’ what he intented to say is, ‘White people are the highest race. The rest of the world should follow them!!’

   Think a little, you will realize this is ALL WRONG…

 

How can all these things around us be created by it’s own??

     If you say “This came from this and that came from that”, we have infinite number of things around us.

     Gradual self creation of infinite number of things must have taken place in infinite time..

       Infinite time indicates these things can never be created..meaning..the world can never be created..

 

Think my dear readers,

 

All these things cannot be created by itself.

A monkey gives birth to a monkey, that monkey will inturn give birth to a monkey only. Have you seen a monkey giving birth to a human?

 

Have anyone seen a monkey transforming to a human in it’s life?

 

Don’t cheat yourself by believing Darwinism.

Think, use the excellent brain which ‘God’ has given you.

 

 Stop0Think!!
