Can I see God?

21 May

Can I see God?

         Before you ask me, “Why can’t I see God, if He is really there?”

I will ask you, “Can you see ‘ALL’ the creations of God?”

Can you see the air? But you still believe there is air right?
You can’t even see the ‘cells’ from which you are made up of.
Can you see your brain? But you still believe you have brain right?

erm..okey may be you scan yourself and show me you have brain, but what about the generations which passed without these scanning facilities?
  Did they admit they don’t have brain?

Can you see the sun blazing in the mid noon? You need coolers, sunscreens, umbrellas to help yourself from it.

After all a creation of God is so powerful like it makes blind.

       WHAT ABOUT IT’S CREATOR??

HOW MUCH POWERFULL WILL BE THE ONE WHO CREATED ‘THE SUN’?
HOW MUCH KNOWLEDGEABLE WILL BE THE ONE WHO CREATED ‘THE CELL’?

        Just because you don’t see it, that doesn’t mean its not there!

I will tell you the story of Prophet Moses (Peace be upon him) who wished to see God.

Moses (Peace be upon him) was in deep love with God and he wanted to see Him without a veil. Remember, he was the one to whom God spoke directly.
Now lets see what God says,

“And when Moses arrived at Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said, “My Lord, show me [Yourself] that I may look at You.” [Allah] said, “You will not see Me, but look at the mountain; if it should remain in place, then you will see Me.” But when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He made it collapse to dust, and Moses fell unconscious. And when he awoke, he said, “Exalted are You! I have repented to You, and I am the first of the believers.”” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Height’ 7:143]

Look the mountain burst to pieces. Imagine the big giant mountain couldnt bear it’s Lord, WHAT ABOUT WE?
And thats why Moses (Peace be upon Him) fell unconscious.

And remember our Lord said to him, “You can never see Me!”

     A man to whom God spoke directly can never see Him, what about we??
Do we have more strength than the mountain which collapsed??

 Ofcourse not, so shut your mind YOU CAN NEVER SEE HIM!

      And to those who claim they see God daily, like their neighbour…surely they are seeing something but that’s not their (our) God. Then what is that? You need to wait a few more weeks to know it!!

See, WE CAN NEVER SEE GOD, then what makes you to picturize Him. HOW DARE YOU DO IT?

But don’t worry, it is only this world.

       Those who believe in Him, and do righteous deeds in the way He mentioned will surely see Him in the Day of Judgement and in Paradise.

Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said, “The Day Of Resurrection is the first day any eye will look at Allah, the All-Great and All-Glorious” [Collected by Daraqutni & Darimi]

Sahih AlBukhari, Characteristics of Prayer 12: 770

Narrated Abu Huraira: The people said, “O Allah’s Messenger! Shall we see our Lord on the Day of Resurrection?” He replied, “Do you have any doubt in seeing the full moon on a clear (not cloudy) night?” They replied, “No, O Allah’s Prophet!” He said, “Do you have any doubt in seeing the sun when there are no clouds?” They replied in the negative. He said, “You will see Allah (your Lord) in the same way.”

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

    So definitely we can see our Lord in the Hereafter,
    The One whom we worship daily in our life,
    The One whom makes us breathe till this second,
    The One who shows mercy even to those who deny Him.

IF WE WORSHIP HIM IN THE WAY HE SAID US TO.

Wisdom behind not seeing God in this life:

          I admit I can’t see God in this life, but why?

There will be a reason behind each and every act of God, right?

    So definitely there will be a reason behind not seeing God too!

It’s not a mystery, we will get once we think about it.

      Imagine, if God is visible to us will anyone deny His presence?

Ofcourse not, and all of the human beings will be believers!!

If God wishes to make all of us as believers, definitely He can.
There are 10s of verses in the Qur’aan stating that, “If God willed, He would have made you one nation”.

Few examples,

“And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘Jonah’ 10:99]

“Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so raise to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The table spread with food’ 5:48]

“He has created the death and life, so that He may test you which of you are best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Dominion’ 67:2]

  These verses are quite self explanatory, if God willed He would have made us all worship Him.
  But what He willed is to stay invisible and test who among us is going to worship Him and do righteous deeds.

We are in no way questioning Him! Whatever He wills, we just obey Him!

But readers!
     Even though He is invisible, He gaves us all means to know Him. He sent us numeroussss Prophets.
     He sent us His words.
     He gave us brain, wisdom, knowledge, reason to know that He is there now and always.

Now it is upto us, to decide whether we should believe in God or not!
It is upto us to decide whether we should enter His Paradise or not!

Points to Note:

1. I cannot see God.
2. If I cannot see God, then I can never picturize Him too.
3. But I can see Him in the hereafter, if I worship Him in the way He wants me to be.
4. If God had willed, we all would worship Him.
5. But He willed, only to test who among us are best in deeds.

‘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! 😀

Little About Me

25 Apr

 

I got a response from one of my friends..we used to have a little chit chat about Islam..bt this conversation is worth posting here..it may clarify certain facts about me and it may help others.

Give it a read!

“Great work 🙂
Big problem in this era of dot com is good amount of religious content is available on net but authenticating the same is real real test for the surfer. Most of the Islamic sites on internet are misleading.

One day I thought of reading biography of first Caliph Hz.Abu Bakr Siddiq(RZ) and with my search query I got beautiful pdf. I started reading and every thing mention there was absolutely correct and nothing was contradicting but when I reached middle of pdf there was some thing written about sect Khadiyaani. The author is praising the sect and its founder, I was shocked to see that and deleted that pdf.

Similarly for the newbies its is really difficult to learn Islam on internet, but the kind of work you are doing is really good and its our duty of promote those sites among Ummah.

What is your opinion on Abdul Wahab Najdi? As far as I know he is the real biddah(innovator) in Islam and most of his teachings are misleading to innocent muslims. I heard that guy is khawaraji and people who are following him are extremist.
Hadith of Prophet Mohammed(Peace be upon him) “Jews were divided into 72 sects and my Ummah will be divided into 73 sects and out of 73 sects only one sect will enter into Heaven”
So every follower of different sects raises this question which is that sect who are on correct path?

May Allah(SWT) by the grace of blessed Sandal of Prophet Muhammed(PUBH) guide us the true path Ameen.”

My Reply:

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

      What u r saying is true.. many sites leads to misinterpretation of Islaam, mostly shiates.. and people start thinking grave worship is good too!! na’oodubillah we seek refuge in Allah..

 

      To be frank.. i don really knw who Abdul Wahab Najdi is…

if He was to be an inhabitant of Paradise..i would be questioned by Allah for my words..

If he was a deviant, i hv nothing to talk abt him.. We dont know.. Allah knows…so lemme refrain from saying anything in shaa allah..

 

      Yes.. the hadith u quoted is a well famous hadith..and everyone who quotes this says they are on that right path..lol allaahu musta’aan..

 

      If u ask me what I am going to say…

 

There r people who say.. take it only from qur’aan n sunnah… and there r people who say blindly follow an imaam..he is infallible..

 

       Bt not me..as Islam is the middle path.. i go in the middle path too.. I need Qur’an n sunnah as lungs.. and good righteous imaams as the nasal pathway for air to enter lungs..

 

     U see.. air can have impurities too.. what i take from imaams ‘may’ hv some __ too..bt once it reaches the lungs (qur’an n sunnah)..oxygen gets separated and the impurity goes out via the same path..

 

 

       Without the quran n sunnah u r doomed..without the imaams it will be hard for u to check everything bck to qur’aan n sunnah.. that nasal passage guides air direct to the lungs.. and lungs do the job of purifying..u gt my point?

 

To be fair..i dont hv that much knowledge to understand everything from qur’aan n sunnah.. we cant ignore the gr8 works of Imam Abu Hanifa, Malik, Shafi’i or Ahmad or any other imaam.. May Allah bless them all..

 

        Rather I wont say, follow one imam juz blindly.. thats where we do mistake..when a statement of imam goes clearly against the quran or sunnah.. Allah n His Messenger shld be ur priority… WHY DO YOU WANT TO BREATH COAL N SAY LUNGS WILL DO ITS JOB?

 

       And i wont start blaming that imaam, if he did a mistake..that may be due to many circumstances.

       Doing a mistake is not a mistake. But following that mistake after knowing it as a mistake is a mistake..lol (hope i am nt confusing u)

 

 Thats what we study in our syllabus..there were many circumstances which lead to difference of opinions between the imaams.. if we study their history we will know that if those imaams came to knw something goes against authentic sunnah.. immediately they would hv changed their view..THEN WHY NOT WE?

 

As I am studying fiqh..i can appreciate all the 4 imams .. if u knw..they were students within themselves.. Shafi’i learnt from student of Abu Hanifa , Ahmad learnt from Shafi’i..maa shaa allaah ta’aala..

 

      But now..people say I am a shaafi’i n i dont take anything from Hanafis.. I am Hambali n i dont care abt Malikis..

 

      We r all muslims in the first place.. thats y i don prefer giving me any title.. hanafi, maliki, shafi’i, hambali, wahhabi, salafi whatsoever.. i am a muslim n only a muslim.

Note: I am not saying giving a title next to our name is deviation..I am in no position to say that! For myself I juz don prefer it.

 

      I can agree with all knowledgeable imaams as long as i see their proofs in qur’aan n sunnah n as long as i dont see them in the deviated path..(khawarij, shia etc)..

         

        I dont say all of them except me r deviated a’oodubillaah…bcoz…i am only a bug..which strives n slowly crawls behind our beloved Prophet (sal allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam).

 

       It is Allah who is free of All Mistakes..and it is He to whom we surrender..no help except His help n no protection except His protection..allahumma ameen.

 

DEAR READERS!

THIS IS TO CLARIFY ABOUT MY POSITION AND MY BLOG!

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!
