God Exists. Full Stop was created by the London Dawah Movement (LDM) under the same title.
It answers the question the following question: Do we really need anything to prove the existence of God?
Before answering or watching the answer to this question, let us look into the meaning of God in Islam.
The first and most important teaching of Islam is the oneness or uniqueness of God (Allah). This teaching is the first part of the first pillar of Islam and the first article of faith that Muslims must believe. Islam teaches a oneness of Allah that goes beyond the English term “one.”
In the 112th chapter of the Qur’an, Surah Al-Ikhlas, Allah explains to humanity how to believe in Him. This Chapter is so important that some narrations of the Prophet Mohammed (Peace and blessings be upon him) say, if the Qur’an were to be divided into three sections, the meaning of Surah Al-Ikhlas would represent 1/3 of the overall content of the Qur’an. Surah Al-Ikhlas reads as follows (in meaning),
“Say, Allah is ahad (unique/one). Allah is He on Whom all depend. He begets not, nor is He begotten. And none is like unto Him.” (Al-Ikhlas, 1-4)
Some non-Muslims allege that God in Islam is a stern and cruel one who demands to be obeyed fully and is not loving and kind. Nothing could be farther from the truth than this allegation. It is enough to know that, with the exception of one, each of the 114 chapters of the Qur’an begins with the verse ” In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate”. In one of the sayings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), we are told that “Allah is more loving and kind than a mother to her dear child”.
On the other hand, Allah is also Just. Hence, evildoers and sinners must have their share of punishment, and the virtuous must have God’s bounties and favors. Actually, God’s attribute of Mercy has full manifestation in His attribute of Justice. People suffering throughout their lives for His sake should not receive similar treatment from their Lord as people who oppress and exploit others their whole lives. Expecting similar treatment for them would amount to negating the very belief in the accountability of man in the Hereafter and thereby negate all the incentives for a moral and virtuous life in this world.
You can also read on the concept of God in Islam under the sections: Does God Exist? and Oasis of Faith. Also, many materials on this topic can be found on The Comprehensive Muslim e-Library.
Now, coming to our previous question, Do we really need anything to prove the existence of God? The answer is that we do not as this is clearly evident from many various perspectives.
