HOW TO KNOW ALLAH
BismilLah rahman roheem
We should know that our Lord who created and sustained us with his bounties is Allah, the lord of the worlds.
Some tend to ask this question
*Is Allah the Lord of the worlds?”
The wise believers in Allah did not see, but they knew Him by clear evidences showing His Existence and proving that He is the Creator and sustainer of all creatures.
Some of these evidences are:
1. The universe, Mankind and life are all created objects, with a limited scope of existence. Every incidental and dependant object is created and, thus, must have a creator.
This Great creator is Allah, who informed us through the books which He revealed to His Messengers that He is the Originator and Sustainer of All creatures.
The role of His messengers was to convey Allah’s words to mankind and call people to believe in Allah and worship Him alone.
Allah stated in the Qur’an (Suratul An’am 7:54); “Surely your Guardian, Sustainer is Allah, who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then He settled Himself on the Throne. He draweth the night as a veil over the day in rapid succession, the sun, the moon, and the Stars are all made Subservient by his command, Blessed is Allah the Cherisher and Sustainer of the world.”
Through this verse, Allah informs mankind that He is their Lord, who created them, as well as the earth and the heavens in six days (Subhanallah!), and that He firmly established Himself upon his Throne. “The Throne is elevated over the heavens”, and it is the most colossal and greatest thing that Allah had created. Subhanallah!
Allah also states in the Qur’an ( Suratul Fussilat 41:37)👇
Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Adore not the sun and the moon, but Adore Allah, who created them, if it is Him you wish to serve
2. The creation of Male and Female
Part of the evidence of Allah is the creation of both males and females and He orders marriage between them. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an in Suratul An Noor verse 32👇
And marry those among you who are fit among your male slaves and female slaves.
3. The soul whose nature is unknown to anyone except Allah.
Nor the shape or form is known to mankind, Allah creates every man with a soul which serves as a means of living to the body.
Surely every soul shall taste death👉(Suratul Al Imran verse 185)
4. The variety of tongues and hues in mankind. Two persons never identical in colour, voice…..etc. On the contrary they are quite distinct from each other in one or more of their characteristics.👉(Suratul Al Insan verse 28)
Sleep as generally known is call of nature which mankind has no control over
Surely Allah knoweth all that is hidden👉(Suratul Khaf verse 26)
6. The Rain which Allah sends down to revive the dead earth and brings forth plants of every kind and trees different in kind, colour and taste….etc. There are only a few of the hundreds of pieces of evidence which Allah the Almighty presented in the Qur’an. All this evidences proves that Allah is the Living, the Creator and the Sustainer of all creatures.(Suratul Al Muzzammil verse 9)
People by their natural and innate character, believe that they came into existence by the creation and sustenance of a Creator. Allah is the creator and Sustainer and Protector of all creatures.
Whoever denies the existence of his Creator and Sustainer, leads a miserable life, and in the Hereafter his end will be in Hell fire Subhanallah!.
Allah, Glory be to Him, has many attributes. He is the first with no beginning for His existence.
He is Omniscient
Everlasting, Alive; neither does He dies, nor does Existence expire
He is the Absolute and All-Independent. Allah stated in Suratul Al Ikhlas verse 1-4👇
Say he is Allah, the one and only, Allah the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor His he begotten; and there is non like Him.
When the unbelievers asked Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) about the attributes of Allah, Allah then revealed the Surah (Qur’an 114) to his Prophet and commanded him to tell them that Allah is One with no partner, The Eternal, Alive and the Sustainer.
Allah created everything; then he decreed a system for His creatures which no one except Him can ever changed. Therefore, it is of the Miracles of Allah that He created Jesus Christ(peace be upon him), from a mother without a Father. Also, the miracle of Allah is that He gave Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) the ability to speak while he was still a Baby in the cradle.
Allah gave Moses (peace be upon him), the miracle of the staff. This staff turned into a serpent when Moses (Peace be upon him) cast it. When he struck the sea with this staff, the sea divided and became a path through which Moses (peace be upon him) and his followers were delivered.
Allah also gave the seal of the Prophets, Muhammad (peace be upon him), the miracle of splitting the moon, made the trees greet him when he passed by them, and the animal to testify loudly that he is the messenger of Allah. Subhanallah!
Of Allah’s attributes is that He has the ability to do everything: nothing can veil his seeing or hearing. Allah knows what is hidden in the wombs, what is concealed in the hearts and knows whatsoever happened an whatsoever will happen. When he desire a thing, he commands be and it is. Allah attributed to Himself Speech. He speaks to whom he wishes and decrees
whatever he wishes.
Allah had spoken to Moses (peace be upon him) before, and to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
The Qur’an, in its letters and meanings, is the speech of Allah, revealed to His Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Therefore, the Quran is one of the attributes of Allah and not a creation as the erroneous kuffar believe.
Among the attributes of Allah by which his messengers described Him are:
His countenance, His Highness, His pleasure, His Wrath….etc. Allah bestows his pleasure on His believing bondmen and inflicts His wrath on the unbelievers of his creatures.
Allah’s attributes are as Supreme and Majestic as to be proper to Him. Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
