Peace be upon youTo every personputting his believe behind his back And flowing his desiresSaying what he can't understandand repeating what they have saidTo every wondered personHas many questionsNo matter how strange they are...Islam will answer themThese words for those who are searching within themselves foranswers to the many questions they have.Who is God ?Today, many people realize that all of the materialistic and secularprogress which has taken place in society has produced a spiritualvacuum, which in turn has led to social, economic, political andpsychological problems.For this reason, those who previously said, "Let us live this life andenjoy it," or "Hey! We don't want to know about God," are nowagain searching for the truth. They are raising questions similar tothose raised above.This is because the innate nature of man recognizes what is good andbad, and what is true and false.It does not feel at ease when Allah's attributes are degraded, and alsowhen humanlike qualities are associated with Him.It recognizes that there can be no more than One and Only TrueGod, and thus One and Only true religion accepted by Him.Allah does not request some of the creation to worship Him alone,while ordering to worship Jesus u, Buddha, fire, light, Krishna,Joseph Smith, the Sun, the Moon, Khomeini, Rama, temples,Prophets, Eliajah, Farakhan, a cross, a tree, a triangle, saints, priests,monks, or anything else.

Everything besides Allah is a creation! They are imperfect. They arein need of others, but Allah is Self-Sufficient.He is The First, having nothing before Him, and The Last, havingnothing after Him. To Him is the Final Return. He does not beget noris He begotten. No human gave Him the name Allah; rather, Henamed Himself with this name. It means 'the True and Only DeityWho Deserves to Be Worshipped'.He is not a nationalistic or a tribal god. He is the Creator of everything. He, therefore, deserves that we submit to Him Alone, andHe called this type of submission 'Islam'.Confusion, though, came on the part of man when people started toworship creation, whether animate or inanimate, besides Allah!In the final Revealed Message to mankind, the Qur'an, Allah clearlyexplains the purpose for man's presence in this world. Outwardlyand inwardly, man is called to live in accordance with Allah's way.This is the meaning of worship in Islam, and it is the purpose forwhich we all have been created. There are those, though, who acceptAllah as the Only True God who deserves to be worshipped, but donot live in accordance with Allah's commandments.Their practices are deviated from Islam. They are not the criteriaupon which Islam should be judged. Islam is perfect but people arenot.We are called to search into Islam.CONGRATULATING AN ATHEISTYES …. you are an atheistBecause you agree with the first part of the Shahada i.e. the IslamicCreed, ‘La ilaaha’ - meaning ‘there is no God’. So half my job isalready done; now the only part left is ‘il lallah’ i.e. ‘BUT ALLAH’which I shall do Insha Allah.

With others (who are not atheists) I have to first remove from theirminds the wrong concept of God they may have and then put thecorrect concept of one true God.LOGICAL CONCEPT OF GODMy first question to the atheist will be: "What is the definition of God?" For a person to say there is no God, you should know what isthe meaning of God.If I hold a book and say that ‘this is a pen’, for the opposite person tosay, ‘it is not a pen’, he should know what is the definition of a pen,even if he does not know nor is able to recognize or identify the objectI am holding in my hand. For him to say this is not a pen, he shouldat least know what a pen means.Similarly for an atheist to say ‘there is no God’, he should at leastknow the concept of God.His concept of God would be derived from the surroundings in whichhe lives. The god that a large number of people worship has gothuman qualities - therefore he does not believe in such a god.Similarly a Muslim too does not and should not believe in such falsegods.If a non-Muslim believes that Islam is a merciless religion withsomething to do with terrorism;a religion which does not give rights to women;a religion which contradicts science;in his limited sense that non-Muslim is correct to reject such Islam.The problem is he has a wrong picture of Islam. Even I reject such afalse picture of Islam, but at the same time, it becomes my duty as aMuslim to present the correct picture of Islam to that non-Muslim i.e.Islam is a merciful religion, it gives equal rights to the women, it isnot incompatible with logic, reason and science; if I present thecorrect facts about Islam, that non-Muslim may Inshallah acceptIslam.
