Is Islam the religion of terrorism? Using the technique of imagined dialogues, Wael El-Manzalawy answers these questions and many others.
The God In Islam
Many secular persons deny the presence of the God. I am trying here to convince them that there is a God who has created the universe.
Many secular persons will argue that the God is unseen and they believe only in what they see. The God is unseen but we can see the evidences of His presence. The earth, the sky, the stars, the moon, the sun, the sea and the harmony of the universe are all evidences that there is a God who has created the universe.
The harmony and the greatness of the universe are evidences of the Wisdom and Greatness of the Creator. Let's assume that there is no creator, then what is the cause of the harmony and greatness of the universe? Did the sun, the moon, the land, the sea, the stars ….etc have a meeting and decided what to do? They are too many and everyone would want the universe as he wants. We are sure that the sun, the moon ….etc are not wise. Then we can say that the harmony and greatness of the universe are clear evidences that there is a Wise and Great Creator.
In Islam, we believe in the One and the Only God. In the day after, the believers will enter the Heaven while the non-believers will be punished. In Islam, we believe that the God has no sons. We are not like Christians who believe that the God has a son. This belief is completely untrue and illogical. If the God decided something and His son decided another contradicting thing, what will happen?
I ask the readers of this article to think deeply about the presence of the God. If you came to a conclusion that there is a God who has created the universe, please ask the God from your hearts to guide you to the true religion. I am sure that the God will guide you to Islam. I invite the readers to read the Holy Quran to know more about Islam.
