See and understand the Signs of God

How could we have guidance to the signs and the evidence of God’s existence ?
 
bismillah1
  • Surah Al-Naml

And say: “Praise be to Allah, Who will soon show you His Signs, so that ye shall know them”; and thy Lord is not unmindful of all that ye do. (93) 

bismillah2

  • Surah Ibrahim

Here is a Message for mankind: let them take warning therefrom, and let them know that He is (no other than) One God: let men of understanding take heed. (52)

In several verses, God stresses that the purpose of the Quranic revelation is to invite people to reflect.  Human must think of the way in which we came into this world, the reason of our existence, on why death and what will wait after that. Question why this universe appeared and what makes it continue to exist. In this reflective, we must free our mind from all its constraints and prejudices.If we reflects by disregarding the social point of view, ideological and psychological, that conditioned us, we should manage to become aware that the entire universe, including ourselves, was created by a Higher Force. Even if we observes our own body, or something more general, the nature which surrounds us, we will see there is an impressive perfectly planned harmony within His creation resulting from an infinite work of wisdom. I will assert that the entire universe composes of “Signs of God” to those who observe and honest. 

bismillah5

  • Al-Imran

Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of Night and Day,― there are indeed Signs for men of understanding.― (190) Men who celebrate the praises of Allah standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (with the thought): “Our Lord! not for naught hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire. (191)   

 

 Those who believe in God, will see clearly His perfection, His eternal wisdom, His knowledge, and how His power works within all of His creation. It require a certain effort on behalf of each individual to recognize the Signs of God. Each one arrives there according to our own wisdom and our conscience. Indeed the real ‘intelligent’ people are those who whenever they see the signs of God they ponder over it to understand His knowledge and His eternal power. God’s knowledge is unlimited and His creation is perfect.

  1. Believe.. is not only in our lips.. but it should be shown in our act…
    Ya Allah Ya Rabb.. please guide me to walk with your way

    RS >> Amin yaa Rabbil ‘Allamiin

  2. This is so beautiful!
    The photo brings tears to my eyes!
    When I think of signs from Allah, it reminds me of the song:

    God is the Light

    How great the wonder of the heavens
    And the timeless beauty of the night
    How great – then how great the Creator?
    And His stars like priceless jewels
    Far beyond the reach of kings
    Bow down for the shepherd guiding him home.

    But how many eyes are closed
    To the wonders of His light?
    Like pearls, hidden, deep beneath a dark
    Stream of desires.
    But like dreams vanish with the call to prayer
    And the dawn extinguishes night – here too are signs.
    God is the Light – God is the Light

    How great the beauty of the Earth and the creatures
    Who dwell on Her.
    How great – then how great the Creator?
    As His mountains pierce the clouds
    High about the lives of men
    Weeping rivers for thousands of years.

    But how many hearts are closed
    To the wonders of His sight?
    Like birds in a cage, asleep with closed wings
    But as work stops with a call to prayer
    And the birds recite – here too are signs
    God is the Light – God is the Light

    How great the works of man and the things he makes
    How great – then how great the Creator?
    And though he strives to reach the heavens
    He can barely survive
    The wars of the world he lives in.

    But how many times he’s tried,
    Himself to immortalise?
    Like his parents before him in the Garden of Eden
    But like the sun sets with a call to prayer
    And surrenders to the night here too are signs
    God is the Light Everlasting
    God is the Light Everlasting
    God is the Light Everlasting
    God is the Light Everlasting

    by Yusuf Islam

    RS >> How beautiful and so true those words are. Many people are so blind with abundant facts of Allah’s existence, how sad. We who can ‘see’…indeed find ourselves in awe within His Sublime. May Allah SWT blesses those who make an effort to get close to Him (SWT). Amen.
