Reply to an ‘Atheist’

24 May

Hi,

  My post of the day is actually a reply to one of the comments here in our blog, Do you say ‘NO GOD’?

As it is quite long, I posted it separate.

Submitted on 2011/05/23 at 10:09 pm

“This is going to be a quick post. All the issues you have raised above have already been debunked by many others many times, so I will just be brief. You can get more information by typing in youtube and watching talks by Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens.”

        Thank you for your quick post. If your brief answer is one of the debunks..i will say ‘IT REALLY DIDNT WORK’. Go ahead and read 🙂

“Question 1:
The universe began with the big bang. No one knows, and when I say ‘no one’, I mean NO ONE, knows what happened at and just before the moment of the big bang, but we have a good idea what happened straight after the big bang.”

   No we don’t have! We don’t know exactly which year big bang took place, we don’t know exactly how old is this earth…we don’t know how long this will last. WE DON’T KNOW!
      All we do it assumptions and assumptions have no boundaries.

” Scientists are still working on finding answers, that’s why we have the Large Hydro Collider. Experiments like these will help us understand the Universe as it was straight after the big bang.”

      Yep..thats what i am saying..we will keep on working..and that never ends.. some scientist will say something..and you believe in that. Few years later, another one will pop up and say, “That was wrong!”. Experiments will give a result..bt again you have to ‘just believe’ that result is right 🙂

“I do not know if we’ll ever find out what created the big bang, but like professor Atkins said, to say God did it when we get something we don’t understand, is intellectually laziness.”

      Do you say there is an effect without a cause?
OK this universe was formed from big bang..some thing should have caused that big bang right? Even if you say…’x’ reaction caused big bang.. some thing should have caused that ‘x’ reaction right?
        And this will never end until you admit that THERE IS GOD..What we find is the steps which God made to create this universe. There is definitely a ‘Causer’ behind all these reactions.

 All these amazing things..just came up like a ‘boom’ without any driving force behind it? Even a needle has a maker..what about this universe?
I say ‘denying Him’ is intellectual laziness..not affirming Him.. get a big picture.

          Let’s learn our universe and this will definitely affirm the existence of God, this will never deny Him. You see all those unbelievable reactions and yet you say they came up all by its own? This is intellectual laziness man.

Our intellect is limited, you cannot understand everything…each forward steps you take..u will know there are more and it’s nothing wrong to say, “God did it” because you and I know, “THERE IS GOD”…even if you deny Him outwardly.

“Question 2:
We are the product of a billion years of evolution. It is evident in the fossil records and in our genes. The theory of evolution is a FACT, supported by overwhelming evidence. In fact, we rely on theory of evolution to develop vaccines for diseases and many other scientific applications. Monkey and us share a common ancestor. YouTube “Carl Sagan Evolution”. Also read up on Richard Dawkins book “The Greatest Show on Earth” which explains the evidence for evolution.”

Again monkeys!
Some said monkey is my mother and you say monkey is my brother?

        You can believe monkey is your brother..but you can’t believe you are a separate creation with intellect and free will? weird.
 You have the greatest history but not that animal!

All celebrated Darwin’s theory..and now they say, “it was without any proof”. Again you celebrate some other theory, wait until few years to get the opposite result.
We are human beings, we always err and there is no 100% truth in any so-called theories.

“Question 3:
God exists in the supernatural realm. Most athiests, including myself, don’t believe in the supernatural. So the ‘time is god’ logic is completely flawed.”

         Submission… human beings always submit to something, this is unevitable. We submit to the One who created us provides for us all day and those who deny Him submit to primitive things..it may be time, their own desires, science..anything..! And they put their trust in it.. I say that is their God.

Believing in God is not just enough, submitting to Him is more important.

We put our trust in God and you put your trust in Science.
Remember! Science never denies the existence of God rather it affirms Him..otherwise you won’t be seeing a number of scientists embracing Islam. As you are an user of youtube, I don’t think I should list their names 🙂

“Here you are describing Pascal’s Wager, which states that you should just believe in a god, because if god doesn’t exist, then you’ve lost nothing, but if god exists then you have everything to lose. This, in my opinion, is a horrible and vile reason to believe in anything as it plays on humans fear. Using fear to convince of something as being true.”

     Put it in this way, billions and billions of people believed in God and only a few lakhs, or crores or even say a million denied Him.. who is likely to be correct?

Those billions and billions or a few nuts? Give a second thought.. there is God.

“First, there have been 10,000+ gods in the history of men.”

      If you really ‘studied’ Islaam, you should have known that there is only one God all time. And there was only one God in the beginning of our history (if you believe Adam is the first man, he didn’t worship 10,000+ Gods did he?). There were 10 generations between Adam and Noah where people worshipped the one and only God.

And again, if you have ‘studied’ Islaam, you would have known.. polytheism began during Prophet Noah’s (alaihi salaam) time.
Wadd, Suwaa’, Yaghooth, Ya’ooQ and Nasr these were the five righteous people of Noah’s time. After their death people kept a stone in their meeting place for remembrance. None of that generation worshiped them..but the future generation was deceived by Shaitaan and they started worshiping it.
      This is the beginning of idolatry and polytheism.

This is an age of Science and you need proofs for everything.. who knows people may even ask proof for their father 😦 but still at the end of the day ‘its belief’. You are ‘just believing’ your proofs are right (until someone comes and say it is wrong.. and then u go in a confused state) and ‘I believe’ my scripture is right and no one can confuse me because it is not based on assumption!

My Scripture itself a miracle.. I am personally moved by it’s literature.  Lemme give u an example..
             There are 10 forms of verb (may be there r many but I dont know). For example, if you say ‘he does’ in English, you can say the same thing in 10 different ways in Arabic and each has a different impact and a specific meaning.
     When you take a verse and see a verb there…you will say ‘wowwww’ coz.. it will be in the most suitable form.. and it will have ‘the most powerfull meaning’.
You could have used any of the 10 forms ..bt still it will be in the most correct form..and u cannot choose a better option than that.

If you wanna study Arabic go to Qur’an..and it has merely all rules and perfect lyrics..and subhaanallaah… NO MAN CAN BRING SUCHA BOOK!

All English translations we have is ‘no justice’ you know.. you just translate it generally..bt the arabic words are more specific and have more accurate meanings.
And I can never say ‘an illiterate’ man said all these things. EVEN A LANGUAGE SCHOLAR CAN NEVER BRING SUCHA BOOK!

“You are pretty screwed if you die, get to the gates of heaven, and it turns out Brahman is at the gates and you’ve been worhshipping the wrong god all along.”

  Hehehe..you made me laugh.. if you see what the vedas say..it says the same thing..worship the one and only God who has no beginning, no end, no parents, no children, no idols etc.. and even it talks about the kalki avatar.

     You can call your God as Brahman..we Muslims have no trouble with it but worship Him in the way He said..in the way His Last Prophet did..thats what really matters!

You are worshipping the idols not the Brahman, worship the Brahman guys!

“Also, I’m pretty sure god will be able to see through you if you are just “acting” like you believe in him.”

     lol I’m pretty sure, you believe in the existence of God. Otherwise you wouldn’t have made such statements. So it’s actually: God will be able to see through if u ‘act’ like denying God. Because belief in God is ingrained in our soul. From the primitive tribes to famous scientists all believed in GOD!

We believe in God but we don’t want to obey Him, so we deny Him. Thats the truth actually.

“No rational person can believe in something that is not reasonable to believe in; flying winged horses, virgins giving birth, men flying off into the sky. No sane person of reason can believe in such things.”

   But a sane person believes in the things which he sees in front of his eyes right? The things around you itself proves the existence of God. Nothing can be there without a Creator.

“We are a very curious and inquisitive species. We are always looking for answers and explainations. When mankind didn’t have answers to the germ theory, or the planets and the stars, and why it rained, and why the Sun was bright and yellow and went from one side of the earth to the other side, we inserted God into the equation. God was the default “I don’t know, but God did it” explaination to everything we didn’t understand. Before germ theory, people thought god took revenge and killed people.”

  Again, even if I get those answers it only affirms my faith in God and not the other way round. How amazing these planets and stars are..then how amazing will be the One who created it?

           If you deny God you deny the whole purpose of life you know?
What’s your purpose of life actually? To eat, to sleep, to find out why it is raining, why sun is yellow?

You should do these researches to know the higher purpose of your life. And denying it is actually ‘intellectual laziness’.
Even if u know all about sun..it is going to die oneday..it is going to be nothing one day… why do you care about it so much?  Care about your soul because your soul is gonna be recreated and gonna be judged. The sun is not gonna be judged it’s YOU!

If you say there is no judgement at all, then this clashes with every aspect of life.

Why do I need to be good if there gonna be no judgement? I shall go and steal.
     Why is someone created blind and dumb and others so intelligent?
Why is someone poor and others rich?

       You will not get the answers for these qs if you deny judgement.

You talked about ‘moral’ you know what.. no one will be morally good if they don’t have a little fear that, if they do bad, they are gonna be punished. Even if they escape in this world they will taste it in the Hereafter.And the reality is THERE IS A JUDGEMENT DAY!
And to prepare for that is the highest purpose of life, NOT TO UNDERSTAND WHY EARTH IS REVOLVING!

These are all primitive things, you go besides these things and they are all going to be destroyed one day. All your efforts to understand them is null and void.
            If understanding the ‘Creations’ help you remember your ‘Creator’ go ahead, otherwise you will get to know what you were doing all these days in a day WHERE NO SOUL CAN HELP OTHER 🙂

“At the very start, the most prominant thing in the sky was the Sun, thus the birth of the “Sun God”, which explained to the primitive minds of humans why the sun went down and came back up again; God went away at night, and arose again during the day.”

    Sun was not the first worshiped thing, it was the ‘One and Only real true God’. Who did Adam worship? sun or Allah?

You reminded me Prophet Abraham’s (alaihi salaam) story.. He knew that stones can never be his God and saw the sun to be most powerful. But when there was no sun in night, he said, “this can’t be my God!”

“When he saw the rising sun, he said, “This is my Lord for it is greater (than the others).” But when this too faded away, (Abraham) said, “My people, I disavow whatever you consider equal to God.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Cattles’ 6:78]

Lets not worship the creation of Allah, lets worship Him alone.

“And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘Explained in detail’ 41:37]

” That say primitive way of understanding exists today, when even in the face of so much scientific reasoning and explaination, and so much evidence, people still try to explain the unknown by saying “God did it”.”

        I think I answered this, even if I get to know the unknown I will still say, “God did it” because He did it right!
Whatever we find is the steps of how God did it.. step 1 this step 2 this ..so on..but at the end ‘God did it’.

As I said..we can never fully understand the way how God did everything. We take one step forward and will find there are many more to go.. we keep on running behind it and all of sudden everything will be destroyed including you and me!

And then we will be raised up and questioned! No injustice will be done to any soul 🙂

And then we may think..I should have planned how to spend my time, subhaanallaah.

“And they will say, “If only we had been listening or reasoning, we would not be among the companions of the Blazing Fire.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Dominion’ 67:10]

Islaam doesn’t say you should believe blindly. Listen and reason.. reasoning will never deny the presence of God, it only affirms it!

“And lastly, you don’t need to scare people into believing in a god, it’s a poor reason and not evidence that god exists.”

          What to do..sometimes ‘truth is a bit scary’. We know it’s gonna happen, instead of denying it ‘No NO NOO’ and getting destroyed when it actually happens..lets prepare ourselves and face the terror.. because IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

“I will leave with this quote from Epicurus, the greek philosopher from ~300BC:

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?””

    This poem is based on God Vs Evil.. mostly all other religions say this.. they bring an opponent to God, God Vs Devil.

But Islaam is the ONLY religion which says, there is no opponent to God. Nothing can dare to oppose Him.

it is not God Vs Shaitaan, Shaitaan will never ever think to go 101 with God..
it’s Man Vs Shaitan..Shaitaan is not God’s enemy, he is our enemy.

“Indeed, Satan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blazing Fire.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Originator’ 35:6]

See God says Shaitaan is our enemy…he is not God’s enemy. he was a pious slave of Allah and now he is going to hell because of ‘us’ (not really us but because of his pride) bt he thinks he goes to hell because of us and he wants to take us with him. What an evil enemy!

      God does nothing purely evil, we have good in everything. Shaitan decieved Adam and as a result Adam learnt the ‘greatest form of worship’ ‘REPENTANCE’.
Decieving is bad but repentace is the best.

           So in and of itself this poem is a crap, diseased by unislamic faith. 🙂

Also read, ‘Why should I believe in God?’

Hope I answered you to my best!

A Delay in Prayer

22 May

There was only 15 minutes left before Salat-ul Isha.

He quickly made Wudhu and performed Salat-ul Maghrib.

While making Tasbih, he again remembered his grandmother and was embarrassed by how he had prayed.His grandmother prayed with such tranquillity and peace.

He began making Dua and went down to make Sajdah and stayed like that for a while.

He had been at work all day and was tired, so tired.
He awoke abruptly to the sound of noise and shouting.
He was sweating profusely.
He looked around.
It was very crowded.

Every direction he looked in was filled with people.
Some stood frozen looking around, some were running left and right and some were on their knees with their heads in their hands just waiting.
Pure fear and apprehension filled him as he realized where he was.
His heart was about to burst.

It was the Day of Judgment!

When he was alive, he had heard many things about the questioning on the Day of Judgment, but that seemed so long ago.

Could this be something his mind made up?

No, the wait and the fear were so great that he could not have imagined this.

The interrogation was still going on.
He began moving frantically from people to people to ask if his name had been called.
No one could answer him.

All of a sudden his name was called and the crowd split into two and made a passageway for him.
Two angels grabbed his arms and led him forward.
He walked with unknowing eyes through the crowd.
The angels brought him to the centre and left him there.
With his head down his whole life was passing in front of his
eyes like a movie.

He opened his eyes but saw only another world.

People were helping others.
He saw his father running from one lecture to the other, spending his
wealth in the way of Islam.
His mother invited guests to their house and one table was being set
while the other was being cleared.

He pleaded his case, I too was always on this path.
I helped others and spread the word of Allah.
I performed my Salah. I fasted in the month of Ramadhan.
Whatever Allah ordered us to do, I did.
Whatever he ordered us not to do, I did not.’
He began to cry and thought about how much he loved Allah.
He knew whatever he had done in life would be less than what Allah deserved and his only protector was Allah.

He was sweating like never before and was shaking all over.
His eyes were fixed on the scale, waiting for the final decision.

At last, the decision was made.

The two angels with sheets of paper in their hands turned to the crowd.
His legs felt like they were going to collapse.
He closed his eyes as they began to read the names of those people who were to enter Jahannam.

His name was read first.

He fell on his knees and yelled that this couldn’t be, ‘How could I go to Jahannam?


I served others all my life, I spread the word of Allah to others’.
His eyes had become blurry and he was shaking with sweat.

The two angels took him by the arms.

As his feet dragged, they went through the crowd and advanced toward the blazing flames of Jahannam.
He was yelling and wondered if there was any person who was going to help him.
He was yelling of all the good deeds he had done, how he had helped his father, his fasts, prayers, the Noble Qur’an that he read, he was asking if none of them would help him.

The Jahannam angels continued to drag him.
They had gotten closer to the Hellfire. He looked back and these were his last pleas.

Had not Rasulullah [salallaahu alaihi wasallam] said,
‘How clean would a person be who bathes in a river five times a day, so too does the Salah performed five times cleanse someone of their sins’

He began yelling, ‘My prayers? My prayers? My prayers.?’

The two angels did not stop, and they came to the edge of the abyss of Jahannam.
The flames of the fire were burning his face. He looked back one last time, but his eyes were dry of hope and he had nothing left in him.

One of the angels pushed him in. He found himself in the air and falling towards the flames.

He had just fallen five or six feet when a hand grabbed him by the arm and pulled him back.


He lifted his head and saw an old man with a long white beard.
He wiped some dust off himself and asked him, ‘Who are you?’

The old man replied, ‘I am your prayers’.

‘Why are you so late? I was almost in the Fire! You rescued me at the last minute before I fell in’.

The old man smiled and shook his head,
‘You always performed me at the last minute, did you forget?’ (And what of those who perform no prayers at all?)

At that instant, he blinked and lifted his head from Sajdah. He was in a sweat.
He listened to the voices coming from outside. He heard the Adhan for Salat-ul Isha and got up quickly and went to perform Wudhu.

Hope it helps open our eyes InshaAllah.

Is God of Jesus, the God of Old Testement?

24 Apr

 

I saw this post in one of the blogs here. I cant resist myself from replying to it..!

“The purpose of this article is not to offend anyone. But, ifit does, Ireally don’t care. Iam sure lots of christians out there will probablly be praying for my soul. Don’t, pray for your own.

Well, here goes.

Is the god of Jesus the god of the old testament? My answer is no. The god that Jesus speaks of is a loving, compassionate god. A father who loves all his children. A god of peace. The god of the old testament is nothing like this. This is a god that punishes mankind for eternity for some thing the first man and woman did. Their crime was disobeying god and gaining. A god that wanted us to remain ignorant. Jesus on the other hand said “seek the truth, and it will set you free”. the god of the old testament tied to wipe out humanity with a flood. this god tells his people to go into villages and kill every man woman and child. Where is the Love in that? what Kind of god tells his people to commit such atrocities. That’s another thing, why would a kind and loving god favor one race over all others? This is a rascist god.

God tells Abraham to murder his own son, then when he was about to do it , god pretty much says, I was just kidding, but now I know that you are obiedient. this is a sadistic god. in the old testament, when it talks about how the Pharoh fed the hebrew children to the crocidiles, every one says how evil it was. but when god curses Egypt, and kills evvery first born son. it’s alright. So, it is bad if we do it, but it is ok if god does it. The god of jesus would never be like this.

So, Is the god of Jesus the god of the old testement? No.

I rest my case.”

To read fully click here.

 

I would have answered this post in its comments area..bt it needs a good explanation..so I decided to bring it here.

 

The first thing which I appreciate is that the author recognises JESUS (Peace be upon him) IS NOT GOD. There was a God for Jesus (Peace be upon him) himself.

 

When I hovered the comments area..I could see that no one answered the author’s questions directly. Those were appreciable questions in my view. They just bombarded him with quotes from bible(s) without explaining them.

 

When I read this post..my faith increased..yes it is true..the God who sent down AlQur’aan has sent down these previous scriptures Taurah (Old Testement you say), Injeel (New Testement)…otherwise u wouldnt be having these certain incidents in it..which Qur’aan speaks about it clearly.

 

In numerous verses in AlQur’aan, God states that this book affirms the books which came before it..lemme quote few of them.

And We have sent down the true Book upon you (O Muhammad), confirming the Books preceding it, and a protector and witness over them [AlQur’aan 5:48]

 

[Allah] said, “O John, take the Scripture with determination.” And We gave him judgement [while yet] a boy. [AlQur’aan 19:12]

 

[Jesus] said, “Indeed, I am the servant of Allah. He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. [AlQur’aan 19:30]

 

And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture that perhaps they would be guided. [AlQur’aan 23:49]

 

And before it was the scripture of Moses to lead and as a mercy. And this is a confirming Book in an Arabic tongue to warn those who have wronged and as good tidings to the doers of good. [AlQur’aan 46:12]

 

But what should we take into consideration is.. ARE TODAY’S OT AND NT GOD’S WORDS?

Speak from ur heart..do u say they r God’s words?

We review it, we add to it, we delete from it and still we say THEY ARE GOD’S WORDS?

Lets be truthful to ourselves, lose is going to be for us and not to others!

God admonishes this by saying,

So woe to those who write the “scripture” with their own hands, then say, “This is from Allah ,” in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn. [AlQur’aan 2:79]

         

              And this is the main reason for all these confusions you got. You agree the words of God but you cant agree the words of human beings in the cover of ‘Godly man’.

 

Now lemme come to your actual questions.

 

A loving, compassionate, peaceful God:

             I agree with u in all these qualities of God. But when u say that a loving God can never get anger or a compassionate God can never punish you thats where I disagree with you.

See you believe that when you do good God loves you, then why cant you believe that God can punish those who transgress too?? Do you think He cant do that? Do you think He cant get anger?

Come on now, where is the logic here?

GOD IS ALWAYS A LOVING GOD BUT THAT DOESNT MAKE HIM INABLE TO PLOT AGAINST THOSE WHO AGRESS!

In addition you can read my posts:

Is Love God?

Can God instill’ Fear’?

And see whether u can agree with my views.

 

This is a God that punishes mankind for eternity for some thing the first man and woman did:

           Now this is not true. This is what we added. God doesnot punish the whole mankind for what Adam and Eve did. That was there own mistake. Islam doesnt say that Eve induced Adam to eat the fruit. Blame is on both of them. Both of them were decieved. Islam doesnt say that women suffer pregnancy becoz of what Eve did..nope..this is something God ordained for us. There is nothing like God punishes the whole mankind for what the first man and woman did. 🙂

 

A God that wanted us to remain ignorant:

      Hmm..again this is an addition which we added for our own destruction. If you know the first revealed verses of Qur’aan were,

Read in the name of your Lord who created.

 

Created man from a clinging substance.

 

Read, and your Lord is the most Generous –

[AlQur’aan 96:1-3]

                See the first revealed word was ‘Iqrah’ READ. God didnot say worhip me He said READ. READ READ READ then you will know the truth. He is a God who taught everything to us..who taught us what we did not know.

 

The God of the old testament tried to wipe out humanity with a flood:

       I am pretty sure, you mentioned Noah’s flood here. This is not an addition, this is true. Noah’s people were idol worshipers. Noah (Peace be upon him) called them to worship the ONLY GOD for about 950 years!

 

إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ أَنْ أَنذِرْ قَوْمَكَ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ ﴿١﴾ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ إِنِّي لَكُمْ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ ﴿٢﴾ أَنِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّـهَ وَاتَّقُوهُ وَأَطِيعُونِ ﴿٣﴾ يَغْفِرْ لَكُم مِّن ذُنُوبِكُمْ وَيُؤَخِّرْكُمْ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى ۚ إِنَّ أَجَلَ اللَّـهِ إِذَا جَاءَ لَا يُؤَخَّرُ ۖ لَوْ كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٤﴾ قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي دَعَوْتُ قَوْمِي لَيْلًا وَنَهَارًا ﴿٥﴾ فَلَمْ يَزِدْهُمْ دُعَائِي إِلَّا فِرَارًا ﴿٦﴾ وَإِنِّي كُلَّمَا دَعَوْتُهُمْ لِتَغْفِرَ لَهُمْ جَعَلُوا أَصَابِعَهُمْ فِي آذَانِهِمْ وَاسْتَغْشَوْا ثِيَابَهُمْ وَأَصَرُّوا وَاسْتَكْبَرُوا اسْتِكْبَارًا ﴿٧﴾ ثُمَّ إِنِّي دَعَوْتُهُمْ جِهَارًا ﴿٨﴾ ثُمَّ إِنِّي أَعْلَنتُ لَهُمْ وَأَسْرَرْتُ لَهُمْ إِسْرَارًا ﴿٩﴾ فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا ﴿١٠﴾

 

 Indeed, We sent Noah to his people, [saying], “Warn your people before there comes to them a painful punishment.” (1) He said, “O my people, indeed I am to you a clear warner, (2) [Saying], ‘Worship Allah, fear Him and obey me. (3) Allah will forgive you of your sins and delay you for a specified term. Indeed, the time [set by] Allah, when it comes, will not be delayed, if you only knew.’ ” (4) He said, “My Lord, indeed I invited my people [to truth] night and day. (5) But my invitation increased them not except in flight. (6) And indeed, every time I invited them that You may forgive them, they put their fingers in their ears, covered themselves with their garments, persisted, and were arrogant with [great] arrogance. (7) Then I invited them publicly. (8) Then I announced to them and [also] confided to them secretly (9) And said, ‘Ask forgiveness of your Lord. Indeed, He is ever a Perpetual Forgiver. (10) [AlQur’aan Chapter Noah]

 

           But he was critized, rebuked n ridiculed. Even his own wife and his son critized him. Only a handful of people believed in him.

Just put urself into the shoes of Noah (Peace be upon him) how do u feel when u call people to the true divine path for abt 950 yrs and no one believe u? In addition u r insulted? We will never hv the sabr (patience) what Noah (Peace be upon him) had!

       And God would hv not destroyed those people except for the du’a (supplication) of Noah. Prophet’s supplications are not left unanswered if u knw.

 

قَالَ نُوحٌ رَّبِّ إِنَّهُمْ عَصَوْنِي وَاتَّبَعُوا مَن لَّمْ يَزِدْهُ مَالُهُ وَوَلَدُهُ إِلَّا خَسَارًا ﴿٢١﴾ وَمَكَرُوا مَكْرًا كُبَّارًا ﴿٢٢﴾ وَقَالُوا لَا تَذَرُنَّ آلِهَتَكُمْ وَلَا تَذَرُنَّ وَدًّا وَلَا سُوَاعًا وَلَا يَغُوثَ وَيَعُوقَ وَنَسْرًا ﴿٢٣﴾ وَقَدْ أَضَلُّوا كَثِيرًا ۖ وَلَا تَزِدِ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا ضَلَالًا ﴿٢٤﴾

 

Noah said, “My Lord, indeed they have disobeyed me and followed him whose wealth and children will not increase him except in loss. (21) And they conspired an immense conspiracy. (22) And said, ‘Never leave your gods and never leave Wadd or Suwa’ or Yaghuth and Ya’uq and Nasr. (23) And already they have misled many. And, [my Lord], do not increase the wrongdoers except in error.” (24) [AlQur’aan Chapter Noah].

 

وَقَالَ نُوحٌ رَّبِّ لَا تَذَرْ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ دَيَّارًا ﴿٢٦﴾ إِنَّكَ إِن تَذَرْهُمْ يُضِلُّوا عِبَادَكَ وَلَا يَلِدُوا إِلَّا فَاجِرًا كَفَّارًا ﴿٢٧﴾ رَّبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيَّ وَلِمَن دَخَلَ بَيْتِيَ مُؤْمِنًا وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَلَا تَزِدِ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا تَبَارًا ﴿٢٨﴾

 

And Noah said, “My Lord, do not leave upon the earth from among the disbelievers an inhabitant. (26) Indeed, if You leave them, they will mislead Your servants and not beget except [every] wicked one and [confirmed] disbeliever. (27) My Lord, forgive me and my parents and whoever enters my house a believer and the believing men and believing women. And do not increase the wrongdoers except in destruction.” (28) [AlQur’aan Chapter Noah]

 

              See, these people were punished because of their own deeds. Their own evilness. Their own wickedness. U think they should keep on transgressing and God should not punish them? U think 950 years is not enough for them?

 

مِّمَّا خَطِيئَاتِهِمْ أُغْرِقُوا فَأُدْخِلُوا نَارًا فَلَمْ يَجِدُوا لَهُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّـهِ أَنصَارًا ﴿٢٥﴾

 

Because of their sins they were drowned and put into the Fire, and they found not for themselves besides Allah [any] helpers. (25) [AlQur’aan Chapter Noah]

         STOP BLAMING GOD..AND BLAME THOSE PEOPLE WHO DESTROYED THEMSELVES BY DISOBEYING THE ONE TRUE GOD!

 

This God tells his people to go into villages and kill every man woman and child:

            I am sorry this is what some wicked people’s hand wrote to taste the Hell fire. Let them get what they deserve by confusing lots of people including YOU! 

 

Why would a kind and loving God favour one race over all others?

         You did mean the people of Israael, right? Yes God sent many Prophets among them..this can be taken in a positive way but also it has a negative side .. They denied many of their prophets..they killed some of them..guess what will be their destiny!

     Why did God chose Israael?..again it was because of the du’a of Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him). If you know he was known as khaleelullaah..the best friend of Allah..becoz of his immense unshakeable faith.

Abraham (Peace be upon him) while raising the foundation of AlKa’ba in a desert with his son Ismaeel (Peace be upon him) made the following du’a,

 

Our Lord, and send among them a messenger from themselves who will recite to them Your verses and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them. Indeed, You are the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” [AlQur’aan 2:129]

              It may appear that God favoured the people of Israel by choosing many prophets from the descendents of Isaac and Jacob..but He sent His last Prophet to the descendent of Ismaael.. PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM) WHO WILL GET THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS!

God sent many Prophets to the descendents of Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him), but that doesnt mean He didnt sent any to the rest of the world. For each n every place, God sent a warner.

 

Indeed, We have sent you with the truth as a bringer of good tidings and a warner. And there was no nation but that there had passed within it a warner. [AlQur’aan 35:24]

GOD IS THE JUST OF THE JUST..NEVER EVER CALL HIM A RACIST..NO..NEVER..! 

 

God tells Abraham to murder his own son:

            See, the first thing you should believe is ‘GOD WILL NEVER DO SOMETHING WHICH IS A TOTAL EVIL. HE WILL NEVER EVER DO IT’.

You shld believe this firmly, without any doubt because that is the truth.

Now just because you say..Yes I believe..You wont be left untested.

 

Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried? [AlQur’aan 29:2]

           

              No, you will be tested..and if u pass ..you will get a tremendous tremendous reward.. As u said in one of ur posts..its nt just enough to get rid of Hell..we shld do something to enter Heaven..we should pass the tests of our God.

Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him) was also tested! He was tested like no other man! He was asked to kill his own son whom he got after a long time! Do you think we can do it??

           But he did!!!! He believed his Lord will never say something which is evil!! He believed in it and he won!!!

God asked him to kill his son..this may seem as an apparent evil..bt Abraham was ready to do it because of his firm belief.!!

            And what was the result??

Did he kill his son?? No.. instead of that he was asked to sacrifice a goat..and if you know this is what we do during ‘Eidul Adha..we sacrifice a camel or cow or sheep..in remembrance of this act of Abraham (Peace be upon him).

               What an excellent reward..generations n generations of people will continue doing this..remembering this incident!

And this is not the only test! He was tested severely..and he passed in each test..and he got rewards which no human being ever got..like what I said previously..more prophets were sent to the descendants of Abraham!!!

 

And when Abraham was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. [Allah] said, “Indeed, I will make you a leader for the mankind.” [AlQur’aan 2:124].

BELIEVE!!..GOD WILL NEVER ORDER EVIL..PASS UR TEST..U WILL BE REWARDED PARADISE! DONT EVER CALL HIM SADIST..THE LOSE IS OURS NOT GOD’S! 

 

God curses Egypt, and kills every first born son:

       I am sorry, this is an addition..God never cursed Egypt..He didnt order to kill the first born son..He is not responsible for what our evil hands wrote!

 

SO finally…. Is God of Jesus, the God of Moses?

     Yes, we have ONLY ONE GOD. GOD OF NOAH, ABRAHAM, MOSES, JESUS, MUHAMMAD, YOU, ME, WHOLE MANKIND IS THE SAME ONE TRUE GOD!

 

Extra Notes:

You may find that I wrote the original arabic words of God before its English translation just to remind you that we have God’s words in its original form without any addition or deletion as opposed to Torah or Injeel whose original Hebrew or Aramaic words are lost..or may be some of them is in a ‘museum’.

I dont understand one thing my readers!

When you go for shopping, you want the latest model of everything..You want the latest fashioned clothes..latest model car..latest iphone..latest latest latest..

THEN WHY NOT YOUR RELIGION??

WHY DONT YOU WANT THE LATEST WORDS OF GOD??

WHY DONT YOU WANT TO FOLLOW IT?? WHATS WRONG WITH YOU??

I am not saying..leave ur religion..I am saying.. UPGRADE UR RELIGION..

COME TO THE TRUE PATH..LETS BE THE SUCCESSORS OF THE ETERNAL SUCCESS!

Stop0think!
