Proof of God’s Existence – Must See

”He it is Who sends down water for you from the clouds; out of it you have your drink, and there grow from it trees on which you pasture your cattle.” [Q16:11]

”And thy Lord has inspired the bee, saying, ‘Make thou houses in the hills and in the trees and in the trellises which they build.”  [Q.16:69]

Hast thou not seen that to Allah submits whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the beasts, and many of mankind?” [Q.22:19]

”Who created the heavens and the earth, and Who sent down water for you from the sky wherewith We cause to grow beautiful orchards? You could not cause their trees to grow. Is there a God besides Allah? Nay, they are a people who deviate from the right path.” [Q.27:61]

The below video is, for many of us at least, proof of the existence of God the Creator.

If you would allow me to indulge a little here by here sharing a favourite poem of mine which seems very relevant.

by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

 

Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the milky way,

They stretched in never-ending line

Along the margin of a bay:

Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

 

The waves beside them danced; but they

Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:

A poet could not but be gay,

In such a jocund company:

I gazed–and gazed–but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

 

For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils.

  1. A beautiful video, and some beautiful poetry (particularly Wordsworth and Jibran).

    [67:4] Who has created seven heavens in harmony. No incongruity canst thou see in the creation of the Gracious God. Then look again: Seest thou any flaw?

    [67:5] Aye, look again, and yet again, thy sight will only return unto thee confused and fatigued.

    Wassalam.

  2. I don’t know is the honest answer.

    My question to you is, how do YOU know?

    You make a few fatal errors in your logic though. Following this through, I could (and will) ask you, where did your ‘God’ come from?

    “There must necessarily have been a beginning somewhere”

    Why?

    I certainly don’t believe everything came out of nothing – and yet that is what YOU believe – you believe an immaterial non-physical non-interacting God ‘created’ everything out of nothing.

    Wow…what a magic trick. Might’ve worked when people genuinely believed in magic, and spontaneous creation, and Adam and Eve, and all that piffle, but why should anyone with even the vaguest scientific understanding believe it?

    And again, where is the evidence?

    Just because I don’t know exactly how everything came to be doesn’t mean you can just make it up and I have to believe it.

  3. Red Star, Kindly explain to me how our universe came into being..Now this is not a trick question, but a genuine one. No matter how hard I try I cannot fathom the universe coming out of nothing.

    And if you say that there was ‘everything’ and it collapsed and changed form, then where did that everything which collapsed to form a new cosmos come from and if that ‘everything’ itself came from some other ‘everything’ which changed form, where did the latter come from…if domino 100th falls because domino 99th crashed into it and the 99th falls beause the 98th crashed into it and we keep going back so where did domino 1 come from?

    There must necessarily have been a beginning somewhere and that very first beginning, where did that come from, please explain to me your understanding of the source of that very beginning, even though it might be very very remote. I absolutely cannot understand how you explain that beginning!

    Peace

    PS Don’t beat me up, it’s a genuine question, I’m very curious about your understanding of the ‘beginning’.

  4. Photosynthesis: deserving of our awe or ridicule?

    By Zia H Shah MD
    Source / Courtesy: Alislam-eGazette
    After centuries of research, technology has created solar panels. The plant kingdom has been converting solar energy into chemical energy in a much more aesthetic manner. The plants are not only solar panels but are also self generating solar panel factories and much more! They are a source of timber, fuel, food and shelter for animals and human. At the end of their useful life the plant kingdom unlike our solar panels does not pose any environmental risk. As you study the technical details and the miracle of photosynthesis in this article, would you rather support Sir David Attenborough, Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, or Prof. Richard Dawkins. I extensively quote from these three teachers on this ubiquitous phenomenon of nature. Don’t be shy or timid to take any of these three positions, because, regardless of your pick you will be in good company, in this terrestrial life. For, Immanuel Kant wrote, “Two things fill the mind with ever-increasing wonder and awe, the more often and the more intensely the mind of thought is drawn to them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.” If you would rather follow a more celebrated intellectual, “Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations,” wrote Albert Einstein, “There remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious.” However, if there is a hereafter that may have different implications! The metaphysics of the Holy Quran, explaining the fundamental nature of our being, the world around and the absolute, should not be imposed on human consciousness in some legalistic manner, rather should be appreciated in a poetic imagination. The Holy Quran states that everything in the earth and heaven glorifies the Creator in one form or the other: “He is Allah, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.”(Al Quran (59:25) The Quran also claimed in the 7th century when it was not known whether anything existed between the earth and the heavenly bodies: “He is the Gracious God, Who has settled Himself on the Throne. To Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and whatsoever is between them, and whatsoever is beneath the moist subsoil.” (Al Quran (20:6-7)

  5. “Chaos + Organiser = order”

    What chaos? Who defines chaos? What order? Who defines order?

    “Chaos + no organiser whatsoever = order”

    The same way wind blowing sand from a dune makes a neat little hill further along the way by depositing the sand.

    But again, your premise is wrong. Who says that there was chaos? And who says that there is now order?

    “Nothing + external input = Big Bang”

    That’s just plain silly. How can ‘nothing’ bang. And if there is ‘external’ input, than there can’t be ‘nothing’. This statement is logically fallacious. Moreover, your premise is again wrong. How do you know there was ‘nothing’? There was most probably, in fact, everything – which changed its form by collapsing and then exploding to create a new cosmos.

    “Nothing + zero external input = Big Bang”

    See above.

    I would also point you to the ‘Debunking the pseudo-scientific atheist’ thread where I have already dealt with this philosophical jibberish. I have also raised the question of how your immaterial God, who is ‘not bound’ in any physically way, can ‘act’ as an ‘external input’?

    In any event, even if your point was logical (which it certainly isn’t), you provide no empircal evidence to suggest it is true.

    Fallacious logic + no evidence = no argument

    Try again! 😉

  6. God fits into the equation:

    Chaos + Organiser = order

    How, on the other hand, do you explain this “equation” of the atheists:

    Chaos + no organiser whatsoever = order

    How does total chaos turn into exquisite order ALL BY ITSELF?

    God also fits into this other equation:

    Nothing + external input = Big Bang

    How do you explain :

    Nothing + zero external input = Big Bang ???

    It seems to me absolutely EXTRAORDINARY, nay, ABSURD, that chaos could organise itself into order and harmony, whereas in every situation we study it does not happen; and that without an incredibly large input of energy, matter could be separated from anti-matter.

  7. “The below video is, for many of us at least, proof of the existence of God the Creator.”

    How so?

    The images were produced by photographs, processed by machines created by people, taken using cameras created by people. They were images of nature, which has evolved over time (just like we have, and so has the technology which we are able to use). The music was also created by people and played on an instrument created by people.

    I see here the beauty of the natural world and the appreciation of its beauty in the form art, both visual and musical, by one of the intelligent mammalian species which inhabits this world.

    Where is this God of yours in all this? Where does he fit into the equation? What evidence do you have that he was involved in any of this? Indeed, how could an immaterial being be involved in an of this?

  8. He indeed also composed such beautiful Arabic Qasa’id with an ancient and eloquent Fus’ha Arabic script the likes of which that had not been used or understood for centuries, that he elicited responses by contemporary ‘Arabs of the time such as this one by an ‘Arab Shaykh of Syria, who sent this letter to the Imam Mahdi (‘alayhi al-salam):

    “In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

    The morning breeze whispers eulogies of your excellences; your being emits the scent of the sweetest flowers; your greatness remains concealed from the eyes of the people; you have been saved from the evils of fate; may the ships of your salvation always sail across the uncertain waters of knowledge and learning; may you confront the subtleties of understanding; may people submit to your greatness and be witness to your ineffable virtues. I cannot summon the word sto praise you, to pray for you, to speak of my longing to meet you. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you. This letter is a token of love from one whose heart is pure.

    A flame was once kindled in my heart that ignited an insatiable passion for travel and adventure, so I left my native land and destiny brought me here and the Will of God decreed that I meet with my kindly brother Hafiz Maulawi Muhammad Ya‘qub. May the Lord protect him from all that is impure and from the innumerable vices prevalent in the town of Dehra Dun. We spoke of recent events and indulged in tales and stories of the past, and then your name was mentioned. I inquired about you at length and he told me of your unequalled etiquette and civility. After hearing of the beauty of your character, I was drawn towards you and desired to see you for myself; after all, the virtues of the speaker are reflected by his words. To meet someone face to face has its own benefits, hence Moses’ prayer [to see God for himself]. But my path to you is thwarted by the rigours of travel, the extremity of the summer heat, my pennilessness and a lack of conveyance. Could I take to the air I would soar to you in all haste. Alas, my wings have been cut And a bird without wings cannot fly. Nonetheless, if I cannot come to you in person I can at least write. As the proverb says, the letter is half a meeting. To merely be aware of a thing is not to know it; only experience can give birth to belief and conviction. And so one has to make do with what one has.”

    Sub’han Allah!

  9. Tall Pine
    by David Hoffmann

    Upon her crystal shores… waves of shimmering light.
    Part of a larger symphony near water’s edge.
    Under tall pine a leaf gently spirals to the ground.
    A small note… unheard by most. A piece of that song.

    A myriad of lights from so far away… but really not so far.
    A glimmer highlights the base of tall pine.
    Blending with the fallen leaf’s song.
    A neighbor’s melody of change.

    A different forest. A new time.
    Within the sounds… a symphony.
    Within the rhythm… a remembrance.
    A note heard by those who choose to listen.

    Touched by a myriad of lights.
    Reflecting upon a small leaf.
    Sounds blending under tall pine.
    Dancing around a tree… upon crystal shores.

    In my opinion, this poem seems to have been written to go with the video here…

  10. In the rising of the sun
    in every stroke of colour
    with changing landscapes
    and chirping birds.
    In the dance of the bee
    to the order of the ants.
    In the symphony of the aurora
    like an ocean’s tide.
    Through a window in the sky
    I see stars far and wide
    Furious and bright
    The source of all life.
    Look at this painting before my sight
    For, I now know the Heart of the Painter
    and His glorious delight!

    Jazaak’Allah for sharing this video.

  11. This video shows the the grandeur and magnificence of God. A pesron who has a fair mind and a fair heart would see God in every aspect of this vast universe. But a person who does not want to see would not belive even if God would come infront of him in person. Hence the saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  12. This reminds me of one of my favourite poems by Khalil Jibran called “The Playground of Life”:

    One hour devoted to the pursuit of Beauty
    And Love is worth a full century of glory
    Given by the frightened weak to the strong.

    From that hour comes man’s Truth; and
    During that century Truth sleeps between
    The restless arms of disturbing dreams.

    In that hour the soul sees for herself
    The Natural Law, and for that century she
    Imprisons herself behind the law of man;
    And she is shackled with irons of oppression.

    That hour was the inspiration of the Songs
    Of Solomon, an that century was the blind
    Power which destroyed the temple of Baalbek.

    That hour was the birth of the Sermon on the
    Mount, and that century wrecked the castles of
    Palmyra and the Tower of Babylon.

    That hour was the Hegira of Mohammed and that
    Century forgot Allah, Golgotha, and Sinai.

    One hour devoted to mourning and lamenting the
    Stolen equality of the weak is nobler than a
    Century filled with greed and usurpation.

    It is at that hour when the heart is
    Purified by flaming sorrow and
    Illuminated by the torch of Love.
    And in that century, desires for Truth
    Are buried in the bosom of the earth.
    That hour is the root which must flourish.
    That hour of meditation, the hour of
    Prayer, and the hour of a new era of good.

    And that century is a life of Nero spent
    On self-investment taken solely from
    Earthly substance.

    This is life.
    Portrayed on the stage for ages;
    Recorded earthly for centuries;
    Lived in strangeness for years;
    Sung as a hymn for days;
    Exalted but for an hour, but the
    Hour is treasured by Eternity as a jewel.

  13. “The life of this world compared to the Hereafter is as if one of you were to put his finger in the ocean and take it out again then compare the water that remains on his finger to the water that remains in the ocean.” [Sahîh Muslim]

    Makes you wonder what the hereafter would be like for those whom Allah loves…

  14. How anyone could believe this wonderful world to be without a Creator is beyond me. Man tries in vain to impress with tall buildings, dancing fountains…but nothing compares to the beauty of this world, to the peace it gives to the heart. Indeed, He is the Almighty The All-Powerful, to HIm belongs all glory..

    Peace
