Hadith of the Update

Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Amr,

A person asked Allah's Apostle. "What (sort of) deeds in or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" He replied, "To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you know and those whom you don't know."

[Bukhari. Volume 1, Book 2, Number 27]

The Creator


Peace be upon you. Hi everyone. How are you? Hope everything's great. It's been a while since my last update and I think it's not too late to wish to degree students, welcome back to your university. n_n
I am a bit unwell right now. Am having fever after eating too much durians. I guess that's why the elders always say that durian is hot. So be careful next time, take care not to eat too much durians or else you'll be having a bad day like me.  n_n

Actually, this post is aimed for the atheists and the idea to write this post came from the fact of me having fever after eating durians. I was strucked with an idea that I am very weak. WE!, humans are weak. All I did was eating about 20 peels of durians*that's a lot actually*, now I have fever and pain all over my body. Even my breath reeks of sulphur. Urggh. No wonder some people say, 'father of all illness is the stomach.' Therefore, when this idea came unto me, I thought about The Creator. When everything in this world is weak, where everything can get sick, there must be One that doesn't get sick and will be totally different from any creatures in this world. That from my point of view as a muslim is Allah, or for others, the God, The Lord of The World.

 Why did I think of this? Let me quote a part of Maher Zain's song, Open Your Eyes.

"Look around yourselves
Can't you see this wonder
Spreaded in front of you
The clouds floating by
The skies so clear and blue
Planets in the orbits
The moon and the sun
Such perfect harmony
                                     
Look inside yourselves
Such a perfect order
Hiding in yourselves
Running in your veins..."
This song is asking us to question ourselves about God by giving us some examples on how perfect everything in this universe works. A perfect harmony. For something so perfect, there must be a Great Creator. I believe each and every one of you has basic knowledge of biology. So, have you ever thought about the complexity and perfection of the order in our body? What sets the red blood cells to live only for about 120 days and then be recycled? Or, how come when your heart rate and your blood pressure falls, there will be all sorts of processes going on in your body to increase your heart rate and your blood pressure back to normal? Or, about how the pericardial space*space between your heart layers* contains fluid that lubricates the membrane surfaces that allows easy heart movement? These are only three examples of perfections out of many other things happening in our body. Just imagine if only these three are out of control, you might have anaemia when there is a problem with red blood cell recycling, you might also have hyper or hypotension when there is a problem with the regulation of blood pressure, and you might even feel pain for every heartbeat if pericardial space is not there. Therefore, isn't it just logical if there is a Creator for all of these perfections?

Let me tell you a story about a man who believes in God, The Creator of the Earth and the Universe and the atheists who said Earth existed naturally. The man who believes in God was invited by a few atheists to debate about existence of God. He agreed and on the day of the debate, he came late. All the atheists were angry and asked him why he's late. He answered, on his way, the only bridge connecting from his to place to this meeting place collapsed. The atheists were skeptical, yet they played along and asked, "Then how can you arrive here? If the only bridge that connects our places collapsed, it should take more than days to rebuild it. Yet, here you are." The man answered, while waiting, suddenly a tree collapsed in front of him. Then the tree cut itself into the shape of a boat and let him rode in it. That's how he managed to cross the large river. The atheists said, "Ridiculous. Tree cannot do that. It's impossible. It cannot cut itself even more so it cannot shape itself into a boat and let you ride in it. Only man can cut the trees and build a boat." The man answered, "The same goes to Earth. It's impossible for Earth to exist naturally with all these things inside it. Therefore there must be a Creator who created the Earth and all things inside it." The atheists got the point and became believers.

If you say there is no God because we cannot see Him, again let me quote from the same song by Maher Zain.
"What about anger love and pain
And all the things you're feeling
Can you touch them with your hand?
So are they really there?"
Can you see all these feelings? Of course you can't, so can I say these feelings do not exist? No, since we can feel them. Yeah, of course one of the favourite question and answer for this is you cannot feel God like your feelings, what makes you think that there is God? Also, not to mention the fact that you cannot see God. Actually, you can feel God and His Greatness. You just have to find Him first. However, let me give you one logical explanation though. As you might know, there are some bats that do not see colour. For these bats, perhaps they would never know about colour, because you can't feel colour, you see it. Just because these bats cannot see or feel colour, can we say that colour do not exist? No. Then, daaa. *Maher Zain-Open Your Eyes playing~~*
"Let's start questioning ourselves
Isn't this proof enough for us?
Or are we so blind
To push it all aside?
No.."
I think that's a long enough post. Of course there are many more questions left unanswered but I hope this is sufficient to at least make you think about The Creator therefore giving you a push to look for more information on Him. My post here is not about which God from which religions is true. I just hope that the atheists out there will find faith in God and I pray to God that you may find the way. To be dependent upon God is actually our nature as humans. If not, why does people from the old civilizations until now, build all these temples, zigurats, pantheon, masjids and all sorts of other places to pray to God? This fact shows that people are always in need of God and to be able to pray to Him is a reward none can compare. That's all for now. Thanks for reading.
