I want you to believe, but I cannot make you.
In this post – we have laid out, by God’s Permission, all the proof that any seeker of the truth would need to believe in God, The Most High.
But we can’t make you believe.
You have been given control over your own heart, what you believe in is your responsibility.
If you believe – that is for your own good.
I hope you will.
Know that the truth is simple, all you have to do is believe in it when it comes to you.
In The Name of God, The Most Merciful, The Ever-Merciful to His believing servants.
Verily, all praise belongs to God, we praise Him, we seek His aid and we seek His forgiveness.
Whoever God guides then there is none to misguide him, and whoever who God misguides (due to a perversion in his heart) then there is none to guide such an individual.
I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except God alone with no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and messenger.
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱتَّقُوا۟ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَٰحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَآءً وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِى تَسَآءَلُونَ بِهِۦ وَٱلْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا
“O mankind, fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear God, through Whom you ask one another and the wombs. Indeed God is ever All-Watcher over you.”The Qur’an 4:1
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِۦ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ
“O you who believe! Fear God as He should be feared and die not except as Muslims.”The Qur’an 3:102
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَقُولُوا۟ قَوْلًا سَدِيدًا
“O you who believe! Keep your duty to God and fear Him, and speak a word that is precise.
يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَٰلَكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَمَن يُطِعِ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا
He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys God and His Messenger, he has indeed achieved a great achievement.”The Qur’an 33:70-71
As for what proceeds, then the best of speech is God’s Book (The Qur’an) and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad, may God extol him in the highest company of the Angels and bestow peace upon him.
And the most evil of affairs are the newly invented matters in religion. Every newly invented matter in religion is an accursed innovation, every innovation is misguidance and every misguidance is in the fire.
As for what proceeds,
Tell me, who created your house?
You can’t see them, but you know they exist.
We also know certain things about them.
Their being able to do it and their having the knowledge, will and wisdom to do it also.
Then what is harder to create:
A house, or The Sky and everything in it and The Earth and everything upon it?
All of their rules and regulations, cause and effect mechanisms, beauty and order.
Who has the Knowledge, Will, Power and Wisdom to create all of this?
You already know the answer.
There are two different things in existence.
The Creator and what He created.
The Creator has always existed and always will exist.
He has Perfect Power, Will, Might, Wisdom, and Knowledge.
He creates whatever, whenever and however He Wills, and His decree is just.
He is The Most Merciful and has not neglected His creation.
Not only did He create you when you were nothing and nurtured you through His various favours (including your parents) until you could see and hear and understand, growing stronger in body and mind.
But He has also sent Prophets and Messengers to mankind to inform them about their Lord.
His Names, Attributes and Actions,
What pleases Him and what displeases Him, The Magnificient, The Trustworthy Disposer of Affairs.
The first of The Messengers He sent to mankind was Noah and there have been many after him; from the most well known are Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, may God extol Him in the highest company of the angels and grant him peace.
They all informed their respective peoples about their Lord and instructed them to make all of their worship for Him alone.
Since He is The Only Creator, The Only One Disposing of the affairs, He is The Only One deserving of our worship.
They also taught their people how to do this.
What to believe, say and do to please God.
The former nations have now passed away – and our nation is the nation of Muhammad, may God extol him in the highest company of the Angels and grant him peace.
God sent to him The Qur’an, which is the last of The Revealed Books.
They are all The Speech of God to His Messengers.
From those that came before were The Torah (Which God Spoke to Moses) and The Gospel (Which God Spoke to Jesus).
These previous books were for their respective nations and have since been altered, distorted, bits taken out and bits added in.
The Qur’an, however, God has protected it, from its revelation up until this time of ours.
It is completely unchanged, Perfect and unable to be replicated (not even a single chapter, the shortest of which is 3 verses).
It cannot be imitated and there is no flaw or contradiction in it.
God, The Perfect and Most High, even challenges those who are in doubt about The Qur’an to bring a chapter like it.
He, The Most High, has said,
وَإِن كُنتُمْ فِى رَيْبٍ مِّمَّا نَزَّلْنَا عَلَىٰ عَبْدِنَا فَأْتُوا۟ بِسُورَةٍ مِّن مِّثْلِهِۦ وَٱدْعُوا۟ شُهَدَآءَكُم مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَٰدِقِينَ
“And if you (O unbelievers) are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our servant (Muhammad), then produce a chapter of its like and call upon your witnesses besides God, if you are truthful.
فَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلُوا۟ وَلَن تَفْعَلُوا۟ فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱلنَّارَ ٱلَّتِى وَقُودُهَا ٱلنَّاسُ وَٱلْحِجَارَةُ أُعِدَّتْ لِلْكَٰفِرِينَ
But if you do not — and you will never be able to do so —then fear the Fire whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the disbelievers.”The Qur’an 2:23
So they will never be able to do so, even if everyone gathered together to try and do it.
The Qur’an is The Speech of God, an explanation of everything, a guidance and a mercy for a people who believe.
What Remains after The Truth?
What we have said is enough for the one of sound intellect to see the truth and accept it.
All that remains after this is falsehood; either bad desires or bad ideas.
As for bad desires, then know that whatever it is that the disbelieving people (those who cover the clear truth in order to follow their vain desires) seek after, it is the only delusion.
God owns everything in existence, do you think by disbelieving in Him you will be successful?
If they only submitted to Him and asked of Him He would give them, surely He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
The lives of these misguided ones will very soon be over.
How will the wealth they cling on to help them then?
Or their children or their women or their authority?
We will all soon be dust and bones; there is no avoiding death.
God, The Blessed and Most High, has said,
كَيْفَ تَكْفُرُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَكُنتُمْ أَمْوَٰتًا فَأَحْيَٰكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ ثُمَّ إِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ
“How can you disbelieve in God? Seeing that you were dead and He gave you life. Then He will give you death, then again will bring you to life (on the Day of Resurrection) and then unto Him you will return.”The Qur’an 2:28
This life is very short, consider how it is when the old person says that they remember their childhood like it was only yesterday.
We need to prepare for what comes after it.
You have not been created to play about and to try to hide this fact.
Know, that God has created another life that is forever.
He has informed all His Prophets and Messengers of this and they taught it to their people.
Therein everyone will have what they desire and there is no difficulty.
Everyone is in eternal bliss, never aging or becoming ill.
God, The Mighty and Majestic, has said,
وَبَشِّرِ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّٰتٍ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ كُلَّمَا رُزِقُوا۟ مِنْهَا مِن ثَمَرَةٍ رِّزْقًا قَالُوا۟ هَٰذَا ٱلَّذِى رُزِقْنَا مِن قَبْلُ وَأُتُوا۟ بِهِۦ مُتَشَٰبِهًا وَلَهُمْ فِيهَآ أَزْوَٰجٌ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ وَهُمْ فِيهَا خَٰلِدُونَ
“And give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous good deeds, that for them will be Gardens under which rivers flow. Every time they will be provided with a fruit therefrom, they will say: “This is what we were provided with before,” and they will be given things in resemblance (i.e. in the same form but different in taste) and they shall have therein purified spouses and they will abide therein forever.”The Qur’an 2:25
But it is only for those who believe.
Bad Ideas (Doubts)
As for bad ideas or doubts, then the truth has come to you, so grab ahold of it, believing in it, and hold on!
Increase in your knowledge, find out what you need to do to prepare for your meeting with God and what you need to bring.
There are many doubts and bad people calling to them – don’t let them fool you and don’t fool yourself!
For the sincere seeker of truth, we have prepared some weapons for you that you might be armed against some of these silly ideas.
Let’s refute some of their lies now so you might be armed for your journey to God:
“But so and so said something different?”
As we mentioned, there are many people who know the truth and there are those who do not know.
As for those who do not know, then they are to be taught by people able to do that if the benefit outweighs the harm.
And as for those who know, but do not want the truth, they are to be turned away from and the people warned against them.
These people are many, who sell the truth to seek after a worldly gain like money or status, etc, yet there is no goodness in this life or the next except through learning the truth, believing in it and acting upon it.
But most of mankind do not perceive this.
“But the Big Bang and Evolution?”
These are Hows, not Whos.
If you say, “Who created the sky and the earth?”, and someone replies “Big Bang” – this is a person lacking intelligence.
Likewise, if you were to say “Who created man?” and they reply “Evolution”.
These are Hows, not Whos; imagined, dreamed up Hows, imagined processes.
It is not a Who, a being with attributes.
They are not beings with Knowledge, Power, Will and Wisdom.
If people claim that there is no God, because they claim to know how He created the creation – this is nonsense.
Would you accept this line of reasoning: “Who created your shirt?”, answer, “The Machine“.
These people clearly have some serious issues.
As for these guessed at Hows, then read the statement of God, The Most High,
مَّآ أَشْهَدتُّهُمْ خَلْقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَا خَلْقَ أَنفُسِهِمْ وَمَا كُنتُ مُتَّخِذَ ٱلْمُضِلِّينَ عَضُدًا
“I did not make them witness to the creation of the heavens and the earth or to the creation of themselves, and I would not have taken the misguiders as assistants.”The Qur’an 18:51
Again, there are people with vain desires (wealth, status, arrogance, etc) who come up with excuses to justify these.
God has informed us of how He created the heavens and the earth, but these people fear that admitting the truth may mean losing out on a short-term worldly matter, so they lie and cover the truth.
Rather, they lose out on a Paradise as wide as the heavens and the earth; let us not be like them!
As for specific refutations of The Big Bang Theory and The Evolution Theory then know,
The likeness of the Big Bang proponents is like one who saw the starts one night, then went away. Then he returned the next night and saw that the stars were slightly further apart than the day before.
Then he says:
“For the whole time I have observed the sky, the stars have been moving apart – therefore – they used to all be in one place!”
Stars move whenever and however God wills them to move.
As for evolution, then if evolution is the process – why has it stopped all of a sudden?
Where are all the birds with one wing – “evolving” the other one; or three-legged cats and dogs with no ears?
Rather, when we see these sorts of creatures we know that something has caused damage to it, not that it is “mutating”.
“But What About Atoms and molecules, etc”
These are Whats, not Whos.
This is what they say that some of the creation is made of, not Who made it.
“But They Talk About Random Processes”
Nothing cannot create anything.
Why are there all these rules and regulations and cause and effect mechanisms in this creation and Who created them?
Make Me Believe in God
That’s not my job, it’s yours.
We hope that you will take a hold of the truth and act upon it, but we can’t make you, God has given you your will to test you, do you want guidance?
Submit to Him upon what He loves and is pleased with, don’t you want Paradise?
May God extol His Messenger in the highest company of the angels and grant him peace, his family and companions altogether.
