God and Creation in Islam

How Islam calls man away from the worship 
of creation to the worship of God alone

Since the total submission of one’s will to God represents the essence of worship , the basic message of God’s divine religion , Islam is the worship of God. It also requires the prohibition of worship directed to any person , place or thing other than God . Like any other than God, the creator of all things , is God’s creation , we can say that Islam , in essence calls man away from the worship of creation and invites him to worship only its Creator. It is the only one worthy of worship rights , since it is only by His will that prayers are answered.
 

Therefore, if a man prays to a tree and his prayers are answered , it is not the tree which answered his prayers but God, who allows the circumstances prayed for to take place. You could say , “It’s obvious. ” However, for the worshipers of trees , it cannot be . Similarly , prayers to Jesus, Buddha , Krishna oo St. Kitts, St. Jude or even to Muhammad or are not answered by them but are treated by God. Jesus told his followers to worship him but to worship God , as the Quran says:
” And now , God says,”Jesus , son of Mary! Did you say to men, me and my mother as gods besides worshiping God ” He will say : ‘ Glory to you, I could never say what I had no right ( to say ) …” ( Quran 5:116 )
Not worship Jesus himself when he worshiped , but he loved God. Jesus has been reported in the Gospels said :
“It is written .” You shall worship the Lord your God and serve him only ” (Luke 4:08)
 

This basic principle is found in the first chapter of the Qur’an called Surah Al – Fatiha ¬ verse 4:
” You alone we worship , and Thine aid we seek . ” (Quran 1:05 )
Moreover, in the final book of revelation, the Qur’an, Allah says:
” And you, Lord says,” Call to Me and I will answer your (prayer ) . ” (Quran 40:60)
It should be noted that the basic message of Islam ( ie the worship of God alone ) proclaims that God and His creation are distinctly different entities. God is neither equal to His creation nor any part thereof, nor the creation equal to Him or a part of it.
This may seem obvious , but the worship of creation instead of the Creator of man is based largely on ignorance or neglect, of this concept. 

It is the belief that the essence of God is everywhere in His creation or that His divine being is or was present in some parts of his creation , which has provided justification for the worship of God’s creation and appointment of the worship of God. However, the message of Islam as brought by the prophets of God is to worship only Allah and to avoid the worship of his creation either directly or indirectly.
In the Qur’an God clearly says:
” For We certainly sent among every people a prophet, with the command to love God and avoid false gods … ” (Quran 16:36)
 

When asked why idolaters bow to idols created by men , the invariable reply is that they are not actually worshiping the stone image, but God, who is present in it . They claim that the stone idol is only a focal point for God’s essence and is not in itself God ! One who has accepted the concept of God is present in His creation in any way will be obliged to accept this argument of idolatry. Whereas, one who understands the basic message of Islam and its implications would never agree to idolatry no matter how it is rationalized .
 

Those who have claimed divinity for themselves over time have often based their claims on the mistaken belief that God is present in man. Going one step further , they say that God is present in them than in the rest of us , and therefore that other human beings should submit to them and worship them as God in person or God concentrated within their persons . Similarly, those who affirmed the divinity of the other after his death found fertile ground among those who accept the false belief of God’s presence in man.
 

It should be clear now that the basic message of Islam and its implications was could never agree to worship another human being under any circumstances. God’s religion in essence is a clear call to the worship of the Creator and the rejection of creation – worship in any form. This is the meaning of the motto of Islam:
” La ilaha Ellaa Allah” (No god except God)
 

The sincere declaration of this expression and acceptance of prophecy automatically set to the fold of Islam and sincere belief in it guarantees a paradise. Therefore, the last prophet of Islam , peace and blessings of God be upon him }}[Peace be Upon Him’: A phrase which is stated after mentioning any of the prophets out of respect]{{{{] is reported to have said :
“Whoever said,” There is no God but God “and now dying (belief) will enter Paradise . “
Belief in this declaration of faith requires that one submit his / her taught by the prophets of God . It also requires the believer to abandon the worship of false gods.

About mogamoon188

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made: Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee, And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet's wings. I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray, I hear it in the deep heart's core.
