Existence of Allah (SWT)

Post by ILMAdmin on Mon Feb 09, 2009 2:22 pm

Existence of Allah (SWT)
A special branch of Islamic Theology, known as Ilm ul Kalam, deals with this
subject area in detail.
Is there any need to discuss the existence of Allah (SWT)?
Do we discuss such apparent observations such as having five fingers? Do we
argue regarding things like why there is light during the day, and darkness during
the night?
No, we don’t really discuss such clear matters. Thus, the issue of the Existence of
Allah (SWT) is also an obvious truth, which doesn’t need any debate of lengthy
discussion.
The Holy Qur'an also considers this a self-evident case:
Their messengers said:
Is there a doubt about Allah (SWT),
the Creator of the heavens and the earth?
It is He Who invites you,
in order that He may forgive you and your sins
and give you respite for an appointed term.
Ibrahim (14): 10
This is a beautiful Qur’anic proof of the existence of Allah (SWT). Thus, the
attentive and intelligent people will consider Allah (SWT) to be the proof of all
existing things, and not the existing things to be proof for Allah (SWT).
So, there should be no doubt in the existence of Allah (SWT), and there should
be no need of any kind of serious argument.
What we really need is to do is to strengthen our faith in Allah (SWT) and for
this reason, the Qur'an invites the believers to ponder upon the magnificent
creation of Allah (SWT).
However, we are living in the age of doubt, where people are denying the
obvious truths. Hence, the existence of Allah (SWT) shall be discussed from
various angles and perspectives.

Anecdote: A Natural Instinct

Post by ILMAdmin on Mon Feb 09, 2009 2:24 pm

Anecdote: A Natural Instinct
Belief in Allah (SWT) is as natural as any other natural instinct. An atheist once
asked Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (A) on how he could convince him of the existence
of Allah (SWT).
Having known that the man had gone several times on sea voyages, Imam asked
him:
“Have you ever been caught in a fierce storm in middle of nowhere, your rudder
gone, your sails torn away, trying desperately to keep your boat afloat?”
The answer was ‘YES’
Then the Imam asked: “Was there not, in all that black despair, a glimmer of
hope in your heart that some unnamed and unknown power could still save
you?”
The atheist agreed, and Imam said: “That power is Allah (SWT).”
The atheist was intelligent; he recognized the truth when he saw it, and embraced
Islam.
􀂔 􀂕 􀂔 􀂕 􀂔
Someone once approached Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (A) and asked:
‘O Imam, show me God!’
The Imam replied, “Look at the Sun.”
The man tried to glance at the Sun, but could not and so replied that he could not
look at the sun because it was too bright.
The Imam said:
“If you can not see the created, how can you expect to see the Creator?”

Does Science Prove the Existence of Allah (SWT)?

Post by ILMAdmin on Mon Feb 09, 2009 2:25 pm

Does Science Prove the Existence of Allah (SWT)?
History of science tells us that man has an inborn desire to acquire knowledge.
This desire is born out of his natural urge to know about his creator. Many
scholars believe that man’s struggle to gain knowledge began with an effort to
understand Allah (SWT).
All scientists believe that the basic aim of scientific research is to know the truth.
So every sincere effort in scientific research will prove the existence of Allah
(SWT) because His existence is a universal truth.
The Holy Qur'an invites all researchers in their respective fields of specialization
to ponder over the creations of Allah (SWT), in order to testify His existence and
His oneness.
And your Allah is One: there is no God but He;
He is the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Most surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth,
and the alteration of the night and the day,
and the ships that run in the sea with that which profit man,
and the water that Allah sends down from the clouds,
then gives life with it to the earth after its death,
and spreads in it all kinds of animals,
and the changing of the winds,
and the clouds made subservient between the heavens and the earth,
there are Signs for the people who understand.
Al Baqarah (2): 163 – 164
Almost every discipline of science is covered in this verse of the Holy Qur'an.
Truly, in today’s era, the existence of Allah (SWT) is a common observation of
all scientists working in different fields of science.

Proving the Existence of Allah (SWT) at School Level

Post by ILMAdmin on Mon Feb 09, 2009 2:26 pm

Proving the Existence of Allah (SWT) at School Level
The existence of Allah is so obvious and evident that it can be convincingly
proved at all levels.
When your school Chemistry teacher tells you about the structure of an atom, he
teaches you that some tiny particles known as electrons are revolving around the
nucleus. You should ask him a simple question.
Sir, who has initiated the movement of electrons?
Your school Physics teacher has taught you that Isaac Newton, in his First Law
of Motion insists, that nothing can move unless someone makes it move. So if
electrons are moving in their respective orbits, then who made them move?
Has any scientist told you about any type of force, which has caused these
electrons into motion?
Definitely not, without any dispute, scientists say “NO”.
Then, how did the electrons start moving around the nucleus in their respective
orbits?
He is Allah, There is no god but Him.
Ta Ha (20): 8
Both Physics and Chemistry teach that you cannot explain the structure of an
atom and the First Law of Motion completely without believing in Tawheed.
Thus, every book of science and each discovery of scientists teaches us, how
great our lord is, who has created everything which exists in the universe.
The human body is a marvelous creation of Allah (SWT). Every part of the body
is divinely computerized to do a specific job.
For instance, the heart is a tireless, powerful muscle, which works round the
clock. It pumps 4.7 liters of blood throughout the body every minute. That is
7,600 liters of blood in a day.
Thousands of pages are still not enough to describe the amazing features of the
human body and its accessories.
Physics, Chemistry and Biology explicitly tell about the reality of Allah (SWT).
Hence, Science adequately proves the existence and oneness of Allah (SWT).

Brain Exercise:

Post by ILMAdmin on Mon Feb 09, 2009 2:28 pm

Brain Exercise:
When we see sunlight, we affirmatively confirm the presence of sun without
seeing it.
When we find a car parked in a forest, we confidently conclude that someone has
brought it there with a specific purpose. If we don’t see the owner, we will look
for him. If we can’t find him around, we will still believe that someone has
brought it here.
When we observe the chairs and the desks arranged orderly in a room, and a
black board with chalk and a duster, we confidently assume that it is a classroom
for students. We did not see the person who has arranged it, and we do not know
the person who has arranged it. But we believe with certainty that a concerned
person has done it for a distinct purpose.
Now with the same eyes, when we see the moon, stars, oceans, trees, animals,
and numerous other things, and we realize that all of them are serving a definite
purpose in the universe, then should we not believe that someone, who can be
none but an omnipotent Allah (SWT), has created them with a definite purpose?
Thus, denying Allah (SWT) means, denying the existence of universe. In
Qur’anic terminology such a person is referred to as Kafir.
