Conversation between an Idolator and a Muslim

13 May

A Conversation between an idolator and a Muslim

Muslim: Hey, how are you? Can I ask you something? What would you say to me, if I broke off a massive piece of rock from a mountain and started worshiping it?

Idolator: Hey, that would be a bit strange

Idolator: I mean why would you worship that?

Muslim: what if I carved an image into the rock, then worshiped it? Would that be better?

Idolator: Maybe…that at least would make more sense I guess

Muslim: But wouldn’t the rock still be….a rock?

Idolator: I don’t think so…now it has a meaning

Muslim: So it’s not a rock anymore?

Idolator: it’s still a rock but now that u have carved something on it u forge the rock and see what’s carved in it

Muslim: Does you think my carved rock could answer my prayers? Or perhaps it’s better to worship the One who created the rock?

Idolator: Hmm…

Muslim: Just something to think about……

Idolator: …Now answering your question, if you are praying to your carved rock and the prayers seem to be working then continue or else just worship the one who creates the rock

Muslim: Hmm…But is the rock really answering the prayers? Or the One who created it, answering the prayers? I mean, if you were to take the rock away, the prayers would still get answered, right?

Idolator: Hmm…True

Idolator: Good question

Muslim: In fact, if this rock had any powers, why couldn’t it carve itself?

Idolator: No idea man !

Idolator: (Confused)

Idolator: You might just worship the One who Created everything

Muslim: So my final question to you is: how come Hindus worship carved rocks? Why not worship the One who created you and the rock!

Idolator: The carved rock is god rite? The one who created the rock is also god rite?

Idolator: So we are worshiping to god

Muslim: How can the rock be God? Because remember, we carved the rock…does that mean we carved God? Isn’t God the Creator not the Created?

Idolator: Hmm…True

Muslim: just something to think about…

Idolator: I guess that means that we carved god on something that he created…ahh this is confusing

Muslim: Ask yourself this, if this craved idol fell on the floor, could it pick itself up? If not, how can it help me if it cant even help itself?

Idolator: No it wouldn’t, its not magic Smile

Muslim: Yeh Smile

Idolator: Hmm…

Muslim: So why do you worship these images? Why not worship the One True God?

Idolator: And who is the true god?

Muslim: Muslims believe in one, unique, incomparable God, Who has no son or partner, and that none has the right to be worshiped but Him alone. He is the true God, and every other deity is false. He has the most magnificent names and sublime perfect attributes. No one shares His divinity, nor His attributes.

In the Quran, God describes Himself: “Say, “He is God, the One. God, to Whom the creatures turn for their needs. He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none like Him.” [The Noble Qur’an, 112:1-4]

No one has the right to be invoked, supplicated, prayed to, or shown any act of worship, but God alone.

Islam also rejects the attribution of any human form to God. All of these are considered blasphemous.

God is the Exalted. He is far removed from every imperfection. He never becomes weary. He does not become drowsy nor does he sleep.

The Arabic word Allah means God (the one and only true God who created the whole universe). This word Allah is a name for God, which is used by Arabic speakers, both Arab Muslims and Arab Christians. This word cannot be used to designate anything other than the one true God.

Requirements For A God!

6 Apr

 

Requirements For A God!

       Hi there! I guess u have attempted the quiz and thought “You shouldn’t call this as a ‘quiz’” lol 😀

 

Well..anyways, if you have read God or Gods?<–if not click there, you would have come to know that the majority religions (almost all of them) claim that THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.

 

But claiming is not just sufficient isn’t it?

Truth in text but falsehood in practice.

 

Yes, 99% mankind knows that there is only one God but worship many ‘Gods’.

 

Yes! They worship many things as worshiping a God.

 

Now, why is this happening?

 

This happens because we don’t have proper understanding of ‘Who is God?’

 

Just because some one says, He is a God we shouldn’t believe in it.

We should examine, analyse, get convinced and then believe in it.

 

For me, God needs to fulfill certain requirements.. ofcourse there should be some qualifications.

 Afterall to be a manager in a company, you need some abilities. To be THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE, He needs some abilities too.

 

Now I will tell you, what kind of requirements I list for God.

 

Requirement 1:

        He should have all powers, all allll powers. He should be able to create, protect and destroy.

 

Reason:

         I don’t believe in the concept of one God for creation (Brahma), one God for protection (Vishnu) and one God for destruction (Shiva).

 

Why can’t a creating God protect? Why can’t a protecting God destroy? A God should have all powers.

 

(For those who don’t know who are Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva they are God’s’ of Hinduism. Majority say they are 3 different Gods and some say it is one God in 3 forms).

 

Requirement 2:

       If God gives something, no one should be able to take it back, except Him. If He takes away something, no one should be able to give it.

 

Reason:

       If God gives something and other takes it away, this means the former one has failed. My God will NEVER FAIL.

       This may seem a simple requirement but this is very important. If My God takes away my life, no one should be able to give it back, except Him.

 

Requirement 3:

      If God creates something, no one should be able to create the same thing. If My God created this sun, no one should be able to create another sun.

 

Reason:

     If I can make the same dish with same quality which you had made, then you are no special than me, why should I call you a great cook?!

     You should be unbeatable! MY GOD SHOULD BE UNBEATABLE!

 

Requirement 4:

     No one should be equal to my Lord. There should be a clear cut distinction between the CREATOR and the CREATIONS!

 

Reason:

     If I and my laptop looks the same, works the same (may be it works better than me! :D) then you won’t call me a human but a machine.

    If the Creator and the creations are of the same look, same qualities then I won’t call Him a Creator but just another creation.

 

Requirement 5:

     This is very important; whatever God says should over come time! It should have no time limit. It should be applicable in all times, in all areas.

 

Reason:

     The reason is apparent isn’t it? If what God says is inapplicable, you are not going to agree with Him. Are you?

So it should be logical and APPLICABLE!

 

    Only if, ONLY IF one fulfills all these requirements I will call Him a God and I will worship Him..

 

Good news! We do have a God who fulfills this and much more!

 

Wanna know how?

 

Availability 1:

 Creating:

 

Say, ” Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Prevailing.” [AlQur’aan last part of 13:16]

And your Lord creates whatever He wills and chooses; they have no choice (in any matter). Exalted is Allah and High above all that they associate as partners (with Him).” [AlQur’aan 28:68]

Protecting:

“Say, “Who is it that can protect you from Allah if He intends for you an ill or intends for you a mercy?” And they will not find for themselves besides Allah any protector or any helper.” [AlQur’aan 33:17]

 

Destroying:

“And your Lord would not have destroyed the cities unjustly while their people were reformers.” [AlQur’aan 11:117]

 

Availability 2:

“Whatever Allah grants to people of mercy – none can withhold it; and whatever He withholds – none can release it thereafter. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.” [AlQur’aan 35:2]

 

Availability 3:

“Such is the Creation of Allah: now show Me what is there, that others besides Him have created: nay, but the Transgressors are in manifest error.” [AlQur’aan 31:11]

 

Availability 4:

“There is certainly nothing like Him. He is All-hearing and All-aware.” [AlQur’aan last part of 42:11]

 

Availability 5:

         You can’t get an one line answer for this. You need to read more to get it. Especially read ‘Our’ Lord’s Final Revelation AlQur’aan AlKareem, a book where there is no doubt.

“That is the Book, where there is no doubt, a guidance to the God fearing” [2:2]

Don’t forget to click here.

So there is a God who possess all these requirements can ONLY BE ONE!

“Say: He is the God, the One and Only” [AlQur’aan 112:1]

 

Think if for yourself and we will carry on with ‘The Acid Test for God’, if God so wills it.

stop0think!
