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.

Is Everything God?

Is everything God?

            Now that we realized ‘there is a God’, we need to make sure that everything is not God.

 

Two types of extremists are out there. One who says ‘There is no God’ and the other says ‘Everything is God’.

 

For the 2nd group whatever they see is God.

 

Bench God, desk God, u God, me God, tree God, stone God.

 

Yes… u r right …Hinduism concept… (If you really know…Hinduism doesn’t preach this concept it is ‘Hindus’ who do it without any religious basis)

 

Even a child will not say everything is God…

If it knows chair cannot be a God,

Pencil cannot be a God,

Car cannot be a God,

Pig cannot be a God.

 

Because of this concept, Hindus worship idols…

They say, “God is manifest in ‘everything’ (!!!!) But He is more manifest in gold, silver, brass, certain kinds of rocks. So we make idols out of them and we worship the God inside it”

 

Simple question, “Where did you get this from? Do you have any religious basis for that?”

“Is that because some ‘man’ told you or is it the word of God?”

 

For the 1st part of ur answer…u urself know that God is not manifest in everything… and for ur 2nd part u should have a proof for it.

 

See, because of your dangerous concept of ‘Everything is God’ people fall in various evil things including worshipping the natural elements like sun, moon and animals like cows, monkeys..

 

Worship is something which God deserves. He only He deserves it.

He is the One providing for u…making u breathe… making u read this all way… but YOU ARE WORSHIPPING THINGS OTHER THAN HIM!!

 

What is this? This is all UNFAIR!

 

I watched a man in television saying, “We are benefiting from all these natural elements then what’s wrong in protecting and preserving them?”

 

No wrong! Absolutely no wrong in protecting and preserving them.

But you are worshipping it. There is a difference between protecting and worshipping.

 Natural elements deserve our protection but not our worship.

 

They are ‘created’ by God for the purpose of benefiting us. It is God who deserves our worship, not these creations.

 Come we both can protect them but if you call me for worship, “I am sorry I WILL NOT WORSHIP THE CREATIONS BUT THE CREATOR”.

 

So make sure that ‘Everything is not God but Everything is God’s”.

 

Don’t merge the Creator with the Creations.. He has created all these things for a purpose and how bad it is..we start worshipping the created things??

 

Consider these verses of ‘Your’ Lord,

“And of His signs are the night and day and the sun and moon. Do not prostrate to the sun or to the moon, but prostate to Allah, who created them, if it should be Him that you worship.” [AlQur’aan 41:37]

 

And they worship other than Allah that which neither harms them nor benefits them, and they say, “These are our intercessors with Allah ” Say, “Do you inform Allah of something He does not know in the heavens or on the earth?” Exalted is He and high above what they associate with Him.” [AlQur’aan 10:18]

 

“Say, [O Muhammad], “Have you considered that which you invoke besides Allah? Show me what they have created of the earth; or did they have partnership in [creation of] the heavens? Bring me a scripture [revealed] before this or a [remaining] trace of knowledge, if you should be truthful.“” [AlQur’aan 46:4]

 

“You worship not besides Him except [mere] names you have named them, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. Legislation is not but for Allah. He has commanded that you worship not except Him. That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.” [AlQur’aan 12:40]

 

Think! Think! Stop0think!!
