A Little strange, isn’t it? The forgotten Nature and the forgotten God?! Who forgets nature or forgets God? Even atheists don’t forget God and often talk about Him, maybe even more than many believers!
So what do I mean by that?! What is this forgotten nature and who is that forgotten God?
The Forgotten God
Well, let’s start with the basics. What inspired me to write this article is that many people, especially atheists, have forgotten what we mean when we say “God”. For many people “God” became a word to describe something that is just “supernatural” or at the next level. Just a person with superhuman abilities, even if he himself is humanoid or limited!
Basically a “superman”, and surely enough nowadays, it isn’t even that odd to hear superman being called God!! And it doesn’t even stop with superman; basically anyone who surpasses the limits of humanity by having just a little bit of power could be called God! And the famous logical image of God being just an old man living in the sky still exists in people’s minds until this very day!! This is what many people think of when the word “God” is said to them, unfortunately.
And that is what I mean by the forgotten God. I am talking about the Omnipotent being who created us and everything around us; The One Who nothing in the universe stand or take place unless by His power and will. The Only Creator who made Nature itself and set it’s laws, The Only Sustainer Who keeps these laws steady each and every second, even as you are reading these words, The Unique One Who is beyond our imagination and isn’t even closely similar to his creation or us humans in any shape or form!
He is God, The Real God, before they ever changed what it means in a vulgar straw man fallacy for whatever motive they had. And maybe because of this a lot of Muslims prefer to use the name “Allah” to refer to Him, because it is really clear in referencing all that clearly and distinctively.
The Forgotten Nature
Obviously as a result of the twisted perception of God, people got really confused. And so we see a lot of atheists nowadays.
Think about it, what will you say if all these nonsensical and fictional stories were presented to you and they told you “This is God”!! Of course you would think (This is Just a myth or a fiction); actually saying “God doesn’t exist” isn’t that unthinkable anymore.
And if you talked to them and asked them (What evidence would you like to believe in God?) they would tell you things like (To see Him) or (Something supernatural happening)!!
And you can totally get where did that came from, if you are thinking of the word “God” as referring to superman for example or (a man) with powers beyond the humans; or even thinking of God as just supernatural being that can change the universe and defy its laws. But have nothing to do with the laws themselves being there. Obviously, that is what you would ask to know whether God exists or not.
The Major Problem
But isn’t that the major problem? Denying the existence of the Creator of the heavens and the Earth, just because of a false misconception that is being pushed on people???!!!
The forgotten nature I am talking about is the nature that is actually the evidence for God Himself; The One who made its laws.The One who is enforcing these laws. And The One keeping them steady every single second of time. He is even The One who makes the time flows to begin with!
Nature itself and its laws are clear evidence for God, and that is what the forgotten nature is. It always pains me when I hear an atheist saying, “I don’t believe in God, because I didn’t see anything supernatural!“
Then what about the nature itself?!
You and everything around you!?
Who made these laws?
Who is enforcing them?
And who is keeping them steadily functional in literally all of the universe and down to the smallest particles of atoms?!!
Every Law has a Lawmaker, logic isn’t it? Thus, we simply refer to that lawmaker as “God”.
God is the one who made Nature and its laws. Accordingly, that is the whole point to why we even say that He is the one who can change it or make something that is supernatural, so why do people just forget that and seek just the supernatural as evidence!!
This is just a simple reminder to people, believers and non-believers. To remember the real God, Allah, The Creators, after the meaning of the word “God” has been twisted and manipulated.
And this is a reminder that God isn’t just some supernatural being, but rather God ‘Allah’ is the one that fashioned nature itself and made its laws. He is the one keeping it steady every single second and everywhere.
So think more about nature and its laws. Think more about everything around you. And how would it be if these laws weren’t there keeping everything in order. Think about how if it wasn’t for God you wouldn’t be able to even take your breath, Inhale and exhale while reading these words! Man, think about that you can even read these words!
All of these laws are clearly screaming out to us about the Marvelous law maker who made it and fixated it.
So think more about that, and try to think more about God, the real God. Not the one they make up and then deny!
Allah is The One who is closer to you than your own vines, and He is The One who knows everything that happens in your life, no matter how it is big or small and it happens only by His power. Not an old man in the sky or a superman!!!
God is The Greater ‘Allahu Akbar’.
Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use their minds.” [Qur’an 2-164] (1)
