Verily Allah exisists, Look the open sings of His existance?
Mohammad Rafique Etesame
According to the teachings of Islam, the purpose of life of human being is the worship of Allah Almighty and He is alone responsible for his sustenance and other needs of life. He sent His Holly Messengers (Peace and mercy of Allah be upon them) to the people to guide their Ummah as to how do they worship? They established a good example by acting upon the commands of Allah Almighty and lead their Ummah to the way of salvation i.e. the religion of Islam. Now it is necessary to everyone and particularly for those who do not believe in God i.e. the Atheists to recognize Allah Almighty so that they may be successful in this world and also in the Hereafter.
The question is: how can one recognize Allah Almighty because He is invisible and no one can feel His existence? So there are two ways for this purpose:-
(1) Foresight and considering in the horizontal signs.
(2) Foresight and considering in the signs of ‘Nafs’ (soul).
The Holy Qur’an reveals,” We shall show them our portents on the horizon and within themselves until it will be manifest unto them that it is the truth. Doth not thy Lord suffice, since He is Witness over all things?” (Fusilat:53)
It means that if someone consider over the creation of the universe i.e. the skies, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon, the stars, the Planets and that how can they come into motion? Then he/she can surely recognize Allah Almighty.
The Holy Qur’an reveals,”Lo! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of night and day, and the ships which run upon the sea with that which is of use to man, and the water which Allah sendeth down from sky, there by reviving the earth after its death, and dispersing all kinds of beasts therein, and (in) the ordinance of the winds, and the clouds obedient between heaven and earth: are signs (of Allah’s sovereignty) for people who have sense. “(Al-Baqarah:164)
We see that the Sun arises from the East and sets in the West for centuries. It has not been occurred so for that the Sun arises sometimes from the west or from the South or the North rather than the East. Similarly, we see that the Sun or the Moon never overtake to each other or the uncountable stars, moving in the sky, and the Planets, don’t knock with one another. Reason is that Allah Almighty Has fixed their ways for motion as the Holy Qur’an reveals,”And the sun runneth on unto a resting place for him. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise. And for the moon We have appointed mansions till she return like an old shriveled palm-leaf. It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. They float each in an orbit.” (Yassen:40)
Please ponder also in the following verses taken from Surah Al-Room that show the signs of Allah’s existence:-
. He brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living. And He revives the earth after its death. And thus shall you be brought out (resurrected).
. And among His Signs is this, that He created you (Adam) from dust, and then [Hawwa' (Eve) from Adam's rib, and then his offspring from the semen, and], - behold you are human beings scattered!
. And among His Signs is this, that He created for you wives from among yourselves, that you may find repose in them, and He has put between you affection and mercy. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who reflect.
. And among His Signs are the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of your languages and colors. Verily, in that are indeed signs for men of sound knowledge.
. And among His Signs is the sleep that you take by night and by day, and your seeking of His Bounty. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who listen.
. And among His Signs is that He shows you the lightning, by way of fear and hope, and He sends down water (rain) from the sky, and therewith revives the earth after its death. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who understand.
. And among His Signs is that the heaven and the earth stand by His Command, then afterwards when He will call you by single call, behold, you will come out from the earth (i.e from your graves for reckoning and recompense).
These are some horizontal signs of Allah’s existence!
As regards the signs in the “nafs” so the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that one who recognized himself, could recognize Allah Almighty (Al-Mishkat).
It means that if one consider into his creation that how he came into being. That he was only a drop of thickened fluid at first. And then he remained in the womb of his mother for a fixed period, then he was delivered and was at that time a very small baby, then by and by he became young and strong, and then he became old one. The Holy Qur’an reveals,” Hath there come upon man (ever) any period of time in which he was a thing unremembered? Lo! We create man from a drop of thickened fluid to test him; so We make him hearing, knowing.” (Ad-dahar:2)
So, in order to become the successful one and to be entered the Paradise at the Day of Resurrection, the man should recognize God, Allah the most high and have faith in Him by considering the above mentioned signs and by following all of His commands.
