MONOPLY OVER GOD I
Back in December, after much fog and cold, sun at last came out. I was in office and I decided to go out and smoke a cigarette under the pleasant and warm rays of sun. I was smoking and enjoying the warm sun light when a thought came to my mind. I started looking at the building on which I was standing; I felt that building was very big and I was very small. Then I looked at the sky it was huge, beyond my appreciation. I felt that building on which I was standing is negligible as compare to sky. Then I felt that if building was negligible than what I should think about myself. Then thought came to my mind about God. The creator who created what is in and out of this universe, the ruler and creator of finite and infinite. Allah o Akbar (God is Great) that’s what I felt and said. How great is the creator? And how small I am . Indeed he is greater then what I or anybody think about him.
From few days I am in a strange mental stage. I am feeling that I am small that’s why I feel I think very small about Lord Almighty. I have limits and cannot cross them and due to that I feel same for lord in my sub conscious.
I remember when I was in Law College, our Principal, Hamayun Ahsan once in his discussion said
“The day Science proves God I will become Atheist because God is above our appreciations we humans depend on 5 senses and everything tested by these 5 senses are called scientifically proved. Science can feel presence of God but cannot prove it”.
God is great, greater than our appreciations. He his Lord of Finite and infinite and his greatness is greater than the vastness of his kingdom. If all humanity and creations submit themselves in front of him, well he is Creator and our submission only benefits us and if all deny God, God is still great and he don’t depend on his creations for his greatness. GOD IS GOD whether you reckon him or not. Yours or mine reckoning or not reckoning don’t affect his greatness.
How we deceive God or ourselves and what place we give to God can be best understood by concept of God in Many religions and Societies which define Gods appearance just like human appearance with hands and legs etc. As he is like human that is why we subconsciously think he acts and feel like humans and so react in same manner. That is why we try to make monopoly over God. We group with God as we understand him …with draw backs and biases…. As we are small and limited we apply our limitations on God.
For example My religious leader says that because we are Muslims God loves us and he will send us to paradise but those who are not Muslims are fodder of hell. Some extremists go to extent where they claim exclusive rights on God and Say Shia are Kaffir or Sunni are Kaffir and so on…
Same behavior is exhibited by Christian priest especially protestants and Evangicals, who say God is theirs and those who deny Christ are heathens. Some extremists even give racial color to God. They say because blacks are children of that Noah’s son who saw Noah naked and got cursed that’s why blacks are inferior to whites or blessed race. Or Christians have duty to support Israelites no matter what justice dictates.
Similarly Jews think only Bani Israel will go to paradise and others will burn in hell. Because God selected Israel to rule his kingdom on earth and it gives them to do anything they like.
I have yet to understand according to logic of these religious fanatics, why terrorists of Falluja and mass murderers of Hiroshima and Nagasaki will be left alone just because they are Christians and those who suffer from their hand will be sent to hell because they were not Christians. Or How come Baitullah Mahsud or Hakeemullah Mahsud type will be given Paradise just because they were Muslims and Mother Teresa or John Paul will be Judged discriminately because they were Christians?.Why Mass murderers of Palestine will be entering Paradise where as those thrown out of their land and experimented with Phosphorus bombs will be sent to hell only due to being non Israelites.
Do God discriminate or Hate what he himself created?
No .God don’t hate anybody. If he hated anybody he would not have made him or her in first place. Secondly God love his creation weather they are pious or sinners. He punish not because he hates but because due to reason that he want to cleanse soul of his subject. I am father of a beautiful son. Me and my wife were discussing few days back that we did not create our son, it is God who created him but how great and loving our dear lord is that he created so much love in our heart for him. We sacrifice our comfort for him. The Great God who created such an intense love in our heart for our son whom we did not create obviously loves his creations more than any standards of measurement.
God don’t favor any selected race or religion he is God of all not God of few. My Master Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) Said in his last sermon
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a White has no superiority over a Black nor a Black has any superiority over a White except by piety and good action..”
If God discriminated than nobody outside the selected circle could have enjoyed the life and blessing sent by God. God don’t discriminate. Because he is creator and for him each creation is equal. To say some one is inferior is in other words is to say God created a defective things , which is an insult to God.
I ask all Muslims, Christians and Jews please don’t present Almighty as insecure being only because you feel insecure. The massage of Abrahamic religions is compassion, pity and humanity and the way according to them, towards God goes via humanity.
Those who Know God and his greatness becomes saints and friends of God. You will see even their graves lighted and sites of pilgrimage for people after the die. Khawaja Gharib Nawaz, Data Ganj Baksh, Mother Teresa, and Pope John Paul are the best examples. Those who Love God, Serve Gods creations and become ever living. God give them such a high place that you see Gods greatness through their lives. Remember Journey to God starts from Atom and ends in universe. But is it an end or just beginning of new stage of awareness towards God
To be Contd…..
