Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

A wise man was once asked: “How did you know Allah?” He said: “By reading the signs of His power that are manifest in the creatures.”

{Who perfected everything which He created...}

[Surat as-Sajdah: 7] 

{We did not create them both except for a true purpose...}

[Surat ad-Dukhān: 39]

Consider the plants on earth, with all its different kinds, and have a close look at all the wonderful creatures in the world, which clearly point to the One Creator, Who has no partner.

{Say: “Observe what is in the heavens and earth”...}

[Surat Yūnus: 101]

There is nothing but His work, superb creation, amazing power, and the traces of His wisd om. So, who is more enti tled to be the God? Indeed, He Who creates is more worthy of being worshiped and praised as the One and Only God.Indeed, most people know that they were created by Allah, but majority of them still associate partners with Him.

{And most of them believe not in Allah except that they associate others with Him.}

[Surat Yūsuf: 106]

People fall under two categories:

The believers, who are the best among humankind. 

The polytheists, who are the worst among humankind. 

Let one consider his actions. If they are good, he should praise his Lord as He created him inclined to be good. Had he left his self to its own whims and vain desires and had not restrained it with fear from Allah, he would have been among the worst human beings.

There fore, Mūsa (Moses) (peace be upon him) ordered his people to repent to Allah, the Initiator, after they had deviated from belief in Him and made an idol out of their jewelry in the form of a calf.

{And [recall] when Moses said to his people: “O my people, indeed you have wronged yourselves by worshiping the calf. So, repent to your Initiator and kill yourselves. That is best for you in the sight of your Initiator.” Then He accepted your repentance; indeed, He is the Accepting of repentance, the Most Merciful.}

[Surat al-Baqarah: 54]

Whenever the believer knows and learns one of the beautiful names of Allah, he becomes more honorable and elevated and will have greater longing and love for Him; and he seeks closeness to his Lord by knowing that name.

He will also know that Allah has power over all things.

O Allah, the Initiator, show kindness to us and let Your mercy descend upon us.
