Quran: We Will Show Them Our Proofs.

By: Maged Taman

Please read this verse in Quran:
[41:53] "We will show them our proofs in the horizons, and within themselves, until they realize that this is the truth. Is your Lord not sufficient as a witness of all things?"

Please go back and read it again and talk to yourself is this verse God words or Muhammad (PBUH) had invented. If you open the Quran and read more you find many verses talk to you about the greatest creation of God the nature (stars, skies, sun, moon, mountains, tress...) and man. The two things that the verse asked you to look for.

If you are a scientist particularly geologist you will read the miracles in the horizon and beat yourself how an Arabian man in the desert riding a camel will know all these facts. If you are a psychologist, sociologist, embryologist or a theologian and try to understand Quran and publish a paper in your specialty you will be very surprised how a single man come with all of this knowledge. The Quran put all these facts as statements. It is like a scientific book put to you the statements or facts of knowledge without using: may be, it is possible, I would inclined to think so....

Ponder on the verses of Quran that not tell you only the facts but asks your opinion What do you think? God wants us to find the knowledge of creation and the wisdom behind this creation. Unlike the angels and the cosmos laws that obey God and follow his orders, man was created to obey God willingly and only after using his mind. We did not see God like the Angels but we are seeing his imprints.

So look again to the nature and yourself and see the great gifts of God to you in the nature and in yourself. If you think God created man and filled him with his spirit and put the nature to serve him Does not he deserves to be worshipped?. If he gives you the right path as in the Bible and Quran would not you follow his path?. If this path is your happiness in your earth and afterlife wouldn't you follow his path? If you feel that you do not need to know or there is no answer be ready because this is the same bride that caused Satan to be casted out of heaven.

Thus the best book in the world to use to search for God is the Quran. That is for a simple fact it is God word and not even a prophet record of visions or interpretation. It is his own word.
The verse in Quran:

22:8 Yet there is among men such a one as disputes about Allah, without Knowledge, without Guidance, and without a book of Enlightenment,- وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ (22:8)

This is not the book of Muhammad but God. When the people doubted Muhammad at the time of revelation God asked them to sincerely think and ponder. Thus to say he is a liar, insane or driven by Satan is your road to doom if he is not that.

قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَعِظُكُم بِوَاحِدَةٍ أَن تَقُومُوا لِلَّهِ مَثْنَى وَفُرَادَى ثُمَّ تَتَفَكَّرُوا مَا بِصَاحِبِكُم مِّن جِنَّةٍ إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا نَذِيرٌ لَّكُم بَيْنَ يَدَيْ عَذَابٍ شَدِيدٍ (34:46) 34:46 (Picktall) Say (unto them, O Muhammad): I exhort you unto one thing only: that ye awake, for Allah's sake, by twos and singly, and then reflect: There is no madness in your comrade. He is naught else than a warner unto you in face of a terrific doom.

So if you are searching for God sincerely with knowledge, willing to be faithful (if convinced) and enlightening book (The Quran) God will direct you to him.
Another two verses in Quran:
5:16 Whereby Allah guideth him who seeketh His good pleasure unto paths of peace. He bringeth them out of darkness unto light by His decree, and guideth them unto a straight path. -
يَهْدِي بِهِ اللّهُ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ رِضْوَانَهُ سُبُلَ السَّلاَمِ وَيُخْرِجُهُم مِّنِ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَيَهْدِيهِمْ إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ (5:16)
29:69 As for those who strive in Us, We surely guide them to Our paths, and lo! Allah is with the good. وَالَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا فِينَا لَنَهْدِيَنَّهُمْ سُبُلَنَا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمَعَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ (29:69)
Thus people who are sincere in seeking the truth God guides them to the Islam.

Quran is the last message and the most accurately preserved so it deserves to be red very well from all people. It is a message to all people.
The verse in the Quran:
14:52 This is a clear message for mankind in order that they may be warned thereby, and that they may know that He is only One God, and that men of understanding may take heed. -
هَـذَا بَلاَغٌ لِّلنَّاسِ وَلِيُنذَرُواْ بِهِ وَلِيَعْلَمُواْ أَنَّمَا هُوَ إِلَـهٌ وَاحِدٌ وَلِيَذَّكَّرَ أُوْلُواْ الأَلْبَابِ (14:52)

Some people think even if the Quran was found in the desert without a messenger that was honest and known well to his people it ought to be considered from God and followed. See how powerful it is.

If you are not searching because of your bride, inherited religion or hate of religious restrictions I would think you are making a great gamble with your eternity. I would say you are wise if you are sure there is no hell. If you say but who would deserve to be in hell possibly forever, I would ask you who would deserve to be in heaven forever. If you say God has a great compassion that we only will stay for few days you better be sure and try few minutes in the earth first and see if you can tolerate fire.

If you do not like to follow God because of punishment but because you love him and you think he deserves it there are a lot of verses in the Quran that encourage you to do that:
17:70 Verily We have honored the children of Adam. We carry them on the land and the sea, and have made provision of good things for them, and have preferred them above many of those whom We created with a marked preferment.
وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ وَحَمَلْنَاهُمْ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَرَزَقْنَاهُم مِّنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَفَضَّلْنَاهُمْ عَلَى كَثِيرٍ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقْنَا تَفْضِيلاً (17:70)

Thus think again of the miracle outside you (the nature) and inside you (yourself) if you think both are created by a God for you he deserves all your attention . If you want to know him more read the Quran.
[41:53] "We will show them our proofs in the horizons, and within themselves, until they realize that this is the truth. Is your Lord not sufficient as a witness of all things?"
