Atheism – The First Questions, what is the Source of this World?

One of the most wonderful books I have ever read is a book called “There is a God”, by Anthony Flew, who was a professor of philosophy at Oxford University. Anthony Flew was perhaps the most notorious atheist throughout the world. Through his work related to the philosophy and religion, he must have been responsible for converting tens or even hundreds of thousands to Atheism. However, in 2004, he turned the tables and astonished everyone when he wrote a book called ‘There is a God’, in which he declared that he now believes in the existence of God.

When you ask an atheist: ‘where did we come from?’ They merely answer: ‘We came into being by chance’. The word chance here is quite amusing really, because, not only did we not come by chance, but there is not a single thing in the world that came by chance.

Why is disbelief in God the biggest sin according to Islam?

I was once approached by someone who told me, ‘I am an atheist; I do not believe in God. But I am a very kind and good person. I volunteer in many charitable organizations, and I give to the poor; so, given all that, when I die, will I go to Hell? Is this the justice of you people – just because I don’t believe in God, I should enter Hell?’

An Atheist claim is that, he does all of his good deeds such as volunteering and giving to charity for the good of mankind, not in the hope of reaching Heaven, nor out of fear of going to Hell. So what is he complaining of, then? He should be pleased that he will not be going to heaven, and not be bothered if he is going to hell. After all, he is doing all of his good deeds for the sake of mankind, so he should feel secure in his knowledge of that and it should be sufficient for him.

What is a True Revelation? If God did send us a revelation how would we know if its true?

I was conversing with someone and I was told, “science has proven now that we live in a galaxy with about 5 billion stars like our sun and there are billions and billions of galaxies in the observable universe. Hopefully, the next few religious texts that come up will include this fact.”

The poor representation of God by many religious texts has caused a lot of people to lose faith in them. This is a natural reaction to our modern mindset which opposes superstition and wants to see the truth. It is as clear as day to many that those religious texts could not have been authored by God and were written by Men. This realization is desirable in order to recognize the real revelation of God. But in the process of denial we make the common mistake of generalizing all religions into one and see all religious texts from the same perspective as being “old, outdated & man-made”. The first thing I would ask you is not to club the Quran along with the religious texts you are familiar with. Let us be fair. Why should we judge something of which we have no knowledge?

Can’t we believe in God without following a religion?

I know many people who believe in the existence of a Creator but they do not belong to any religion. Does Belief in God Necessitate Belief in Religion? Would God abandon us without communicating? Certainly, it would not be wise of Him to abandon us in this world; to leave us to our own devices;

You don’t abandon your creations of art and Music, so why will God abandon his? Read more or watch to know if you can pray to God in your own way or if you should follow a religion.

Problem of Evil solved before Religion and God

We will begin asking how come a God under His prowess did allow evil to manifest? or how apologetically would anyone attempt to reconcile the coexistence of God and evil. Since middle ages, the ensuing theories by theists in favor of the omnibenevolent, omniscient and omnipotent God’s plausibility in the face of the evidential evil are clubbed under compilations known as ‘Theodicy’. Atheists have deemed these theories as unworthy defenses to logical arguments of the form modus Tollens and have since attained some leeway in professing theists as merely apologetic towards the paradox of problem of evil. In this pretext the problem of evil is driven to disqualify God by reflecting that God cannot exist because there is evil which does necessarily rule out His existence in their argument. In my opinion the problem of evil is theorized to refer to God condescendingly. In man’s anciently thought & carved philosophy of religion which now on documentation has ticked over 2500 years is a sort of philosophy which is concocted in downright ignorance from the knowledge of what God explains as truth in His revealed messages.
So then is it fair that man hijacks God’s understanding by capsuling Him in his own whims?

The perplexing Question- Who created God?

Logically deducing the answer to the perplexing Question ‘Who Created God?’. If we say that everything has a source, and that this source itself has a source, and if we keep up this pattern; each source consecutively coming from a previous source, then the pattern would carry on perpetually. Therefore, logically, this pattern must come to an end; or rather ‘a beginning’ it must reach a source that has no source. And that is what we call ‘the primary source’. The primary source must have existed before the beginning of time, because if it came to existence after the beginning of time, then that source itself must have had a beginning and hence wouldn’t remain as the Primary Source.

Intellectual suicide-Religion or Atheism?

Why shouldn’t I be an atheist? What’s wrong with that? Religion scholars from all faiths keep proving the existence of God logically using reason. Nazism and Fascism were also products of reason. The human mind errs, reason could err. Can someone prove to us the existence of God without using reason?

What evidence is there that God exists? All this and more in this Episode 2-“Intellectual suicide-Religion or Atheism?” of Islamophobia Series Season 2 by Fadel Soliman. Read the transcript or watch it.

Is Questioning Blasphemy?

A young man once asked me – “Sometimes when I ask questions regarding the existence of God, His attributes and His actions, some elders tell me that thinking about such topics can be considered as blasphemy. And this worries me because I think about these things a lot.”

If we question or think, do we become disbelievers? On the contrary, contemplation is required so that faith is not merely inherited. Prophet Mohammad, Peace be on him, contemplated the universe. Prophet Abraham contemplated the universe. And God commands us to contemplate the universe and attempt to crack the code or solve the riddle; the riddle that is: “How did creation begin?”

Is God the creation of Man? or Did Man create God to explain his shortcomings

Relying on people’s opinions is not the correct premise to judge the existence of God or to analyse His message’s worth no matter how intelligent or charismatic the person is. Neither is depending on majority consensus the right way. Prolonging or waiting for an expert opinion to tell you whether to believe in God or not is also not worthwhile lest you lose the opportunity for belief. God is prevalent in human conscience and His messages are clear as day. Let me strike an example to you; In case of me imitating a voice to you over the phone despite all the assistances from that person to mimic him to greatest possible degree with best of my talents your unique enquiries to me will prompt me to succumb from true imitation. Similarly the Quran will clarify to you in a convincing way that it is not Muhammad or any other human but God is conversing with you. It is perhaps your own cognisance that will truly help you identify demi gods otherwise you may prolong the wait anticipating expert opinions and finally lose the opportunity for belief.
