Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Laa ilaaha il-lAllaah, Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar, Wa Lil-laahil-hamd

(Allaah is the Greatest, Allaah is the Greatest, Allaah is the Greatest,there is no god but Allaah; Allaah is the Greatest and to Allaah be all praise)

I like my God! He looks like me!


From India to China, from America to Europe, from Brazil to South Africa; people have different religions and different cultures. That's how Allah created them.

Parvati, goddess of India
Buddha, god of China
Buddha looks Chinese, Parvati looks Indian, and Virgin Mary looks European and sometimes African!

What a remarkable thing to notice!....

When people decide to put God in a certain form, they natively have the nearest perception to what they're used to. Sure a god that resembles them would be more familiar. You'd hardly find a Hindu accepting to worship Buddha, the god which has narrow eyes and Chinese character; the case would be the same for a Chinese or Japanese.

Italian Virgin Mary & her son
African Virgin Mary & her son

 
Even Jesus and Virgin Mary, it's already known they are Arabs, so they are neither white nor black but Caucasian. But when people decide to regard them as gods they don't find it familiar to worship gods from a different region. Would Whites accept Jesus as Caucasian? They've always considered their race as the noblest on Earth. Would Blacks accept to worship Jesus as a white god? They have always suffered coz of white people! They suffered slavery and torture so it's pretty much logic if they draw him as Black in their churches.


But don't we already realise we all come from the same origin? We all sure have the same Creator? We even can marry from each other and have children! Then would it be logic to have specific gods for specific regions?


If God, glorified be He, had an Indian wife, wouldn't we Arabs say: then why shouldn't He have an Arabic wife too?
Imagine that! How would the issue be logic if God had wives from different regions and sons from all these wives? And every nation glorifies the wife that belongs to them and her son(s)? so complicated indeed!


That's what people worshiping such figures should consider: God is in need of nobody, He doesn't apply our rules coz simply He created us and the rules that apply to us. So why don't we simply accept that He is One, with no figure to be imagined, doesn't look like any nation or belong to any race; and if we decide to template Him we will be the only losers?!

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَى وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
49:13 O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.


وَلَوْ شَاء رَبُّكَ لَجَعَلَ النَّاسَ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً وَلاَ يَزَالُونَ مُخْتَلِفِينَ
إِلاَّ مَن رَّحِمَ رَبُّكَ وَلِذَلِكَ خَلَقَهُمْ
 11:118 And if thy Lord had willed, He verily would have made mankind one nation, yet they cease not differing,
119 Save him on whom thy Lord hath mercy; and for that He did create them 


Now let our minds be set free; Allah has no wife nor son, and we are nothing more than His slaves, created by His Hands (and His are not like ours), apply His law that we can't dare to change, He's everywhere; no time nor place would include Him, and we are grown up enough to worship Him without need for a sign, a template or a figure to let us feel close to worship!

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ
2:186 And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright.

  1. Good article with an interesting topic (one similar to a previous article)

    My only criticism would be the negative words towards white people. they haven't always thought they were better than everyone else and blacks have not been tortured or enslaved by whites only yet that's all that was mentioned.

    I think not singling out any one race is a better approach when trying to gain the respect and approval of an audience which will inevitably have whites who will not appreciate such views against them.

    1. in fact, this already happened in a specific time era, this era left the impact we see today. I mean having specific churches for blacks is a consequence of former restlessness.

      so I really meant to roll back to the reason, not meaning that people in our present world think the same way, but they already came to life to see the situation as it is, they sure are trying to change it yet still some remains are there.

      I'm sorry if that offended anybody, I really hoped if that part of the history never existed.

    2. God knew giving man his own free will would lead to all kinds of division and self-propagation. God did it anyway. Still, I find it very interesting of how diverse the peoples of the world became to be. Again, imagine a world with One kind of people. Nah, it is indeed a boring thing to work on. Every thing on a "flat-liner". Indeed, division means, we got to work it. Love, beloved, will last to the end.

    3. Yes, Maria.. the universe has been created on the basis of diversity so if someone wishes to diminish a certain party or race he's just going against these constant laws.

      But the fact I'm wishing to declare in this post is that all those diverse humans didn't once just think that they are not alone in this universe so it would be unjust to template their "god" to be just their own, this in my opinion the greatest evidence that God doesn't belong to any declared shape ever thought or imagined.
