Man is born curious. His investigation about himself and about everything that he sees around starts from his very childhood. The child who eagerly breaks open his toy to discover what is inside is a symbolisation of manwho is impatient to discover the reality and cause behind this universe. The scientists who study the unending universe and the sophisticated atoms, too, have this very stimulant as their objective.
The universe is an open book in front of man who is impatient to find its roots. Lamentably, this open book doesn't enclose the identity of its creator. But every alphabet in this book demands the requirement of an architect behind it. Each leaves of this book reveal the architect to certain extend.
Man is gifted with the ability to think. While in the midst of this enormous universe, millions of questions pop up in his mind. These questions reflect his impatience and need to discover himself and the universe. From illiterate ones to the highly
Knowledge can be classified into two- tangible or apparent knowledge and spiritual knowledge. The first one is that which can be acquired by anyone. Scientific knowledge comes under this category. It wouldn't be wrong if it is named sensation or perceptible knowledge. Experience is its basis. Referring tangible or apparent knowledge to sensation or perceptible knowledge doesn't chain it up in the five sensational knowledge. In addition to the knowledge provided by the senses and physical organs, the unintrospective knowledge that the mind provides also comes within its boundary. The theories that are shaped in the minds of the scientists while trying to assemble factual knowledge is, also, a part of tangible or apparent knowledge. Even though theories are evolved out of intuitions formed while scientists beat their brain over the questionnaire, the basis of these intuitions is knowledge and studies. Due to this, there is no essence in taking these intuitions beyond tangible knowledg
Allah is the creator of the entire universe...the creator of every minute as well as massive phenomenon...the creator of each and every object from atoms to constellations. Man's search for reasons behind every phenomena and every fact comes to an end in Him who is beyond any reason. He is the ultimate destination of all queries. Since every object in this universe, however small or big, demands a reason, certainly, the one who is beyond all quests and doesn't demand a reason should be remote from this world and should be beyond a being. Thus Allah, who is the creator of the world but remote from the world, is indeed the processor of an entity that possesses characteristics beyond that of a substance.
Allah created time-space continuum. But Allah's entity is beyond time-space continuum. Human beings are incompetent to guess or deduce the characteristics of this entity. It is beyond the capability of human brain, which is chained by time-space continuum, to picturise Al
ALLAH; NAMES AND QUALITIES
Since godly entity is beyond human inference, how can we know and understand Him? The holy Quran directs man to brood over the blessings He gifted us and to realise His qualities thereby knowing Him. Quran introduces Allah through adjectives that spread light over His characteristics. Through these information that the Quran puts forward, it is possible for anyone to understand His characteristics within his intellectual boundaries. Verily, â€˜Know Allah', means to know His qualities. His names and qualities proclaim so clearly that he is the sole deserver of all forms of worship. Thus, indeed, anyone who understands Allah in the form put forward by the Quran can never attribute worship to anyone or anything other than Him.
â€œAnd Allah's are the best names, therefore call on Him thereby, and leave alone those who violate the sanctity of His names; they shall be recompensed for what they did.â€(Qur'an 7:180)
Considering Allah as â€˜the one with out attributes'
THE CREATOR AND HIS CREATIONS
Islamic perspective enlightens two categories of truth- the creator and creations- Allah, the creator and the rest His creations. Nothing in this entire universe can equal the creator. Allah's entity is supreme and ultimate; He is the unrivalled and the unique; The invincible and the infallible; The extremely powerful and the All knower; He is the noble creator of the whole universe; The one on whom every creature depends, yet, He depends on none; The most gracious, the most merciful; Full of virtues and the complete. Yet, the creations are also reality, which completely depend on Him for existence.
Islam stands apart from the Adwaida philosophy, which considers this world as an illusion. The world that we live in is, indeed, real. It has a beginning as well as an end. Quran proclaims the existence of a creator whose dignity is praised by every single thing in this world.
â€œWhatever is in the heavens and earth exalts Allah, and He is the Exalted in Might
WHO IS ALLAH?
Every creation in the universe is in search of an instigator.
Man is no exception to this fact. He seeks the cause behind every phenomenon and every occurrence. There isn't a single phenomenon or particle that is absolutely self-explanatory to
be beyond all quests. Without excluding even a minute object from atoms to constellations, man is in search of a cause behind everything in the universe. On discovering it, he turns further more curious and strives to discover the cause behind what he
has already discovered. This persistent investigation is not infinite. It eventually leads to the Almighty Creator, who is the Ultimate and the Absolute â€“ the One True God. He is the final destination of all enquiries and quests. In fact, every object in
this universe, however small or big, demands a reason. Thus,
certainly, Almighty God, who is beyond all quests and does not demand a reason should be remote from this world and should be different
