‘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! 😀

IS NATURE GOD?

27 Mar

 

 

Do you say ‘Nature is God’?

 

      Do you say that Nature is God and it protects everything?

 

Go ahead and Read,

 

Nature did not create anything.

Rather God created the Nature too.

 

For example,

 

One fine morning, you are walking on a sea-shore. You saw a human footstep.  Will you say, “Oh wow! How beautifully these sea waves have jumped onto the shore and created a footprint just like a human-being’s??!!”.

You wont say it. Will you?? 😀

 

You will surely think some man has walked along the shore.

 

So even this natural footprint cannot itself, it needs a man to create it.

 

Then how come this whole universe and the amazing amazing nature be created itself???

 

Put everything into the same principle,

 

We see lots and lots of things around us, they are so beautifully designed.

 

Just look at our body, how amazing it is!!

 

We have innumerous cells within us and within each cell there is another world .. but still we don’t see anything. Invisible adventure!

 

How can u say this nature created everything when it can’t even create itself ?

 

Exclusively for you, ‘Your’ God in His Last Book says,

  “Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason.” [AlQur’aan Chapter AlBaqarah (The Cow) 2:164]

So there are signs in nature for those people who reason. They will know that there is some power which created all these things including nature.

 

Science will teach you when Hydrogen and Oxygen collides, water is created.

But only RELIGION TEACHES YOU WHO CREATED THE HYDROGEN AND OXYGEN!!

 

Consider this small example,

 

You made a watch. Will you accept anyone saying, “You are this watch”???

 

Afterall you a human being cant accept this.

 

Then question yourself, how will God accept that Nature is God when He Himself created the nature??

 

Can you realize how sinfull is it to say “Nature is God”

 

O My Readers who say Nature is God,

 

RECOGNIZE NATURE FIRST!

 

IT WILL MAKE YOU RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS GOD!!!!!!
