In search of God through His creation

None of God’s creations go to waste. Everything has a reason, everything has its usefulness, everything has its purpose. Leaving up to all human beings to search for its reasons, usefulness and its wisdom

God laid down the earth and created everything in it not for simply for human beings to live, reproduce and making use of all the wealth He provides. What’s important is for us to witness and observe physically His creations. These are the vital and solid proof of His existence and one of the reasons as well, why God created the universe.

Human beings are capable of looking at not only the world of syahadah or physical world but various other worlds as well. World is an indication or signs of God’s existence. Everything that God creates is considered as world or alam, anything besides God is world or alam. There are only two existence either God, the Creator or His creations (alam/world). The world exists indicating there is God,the Creator.

Majority of human beings simply look but not really seeing anything. Even though they manage to look at pysical things,they are not able to relate the world with God. Their sight could access only the first level. They are not able to to see or understand the wisdom of God’s creations. Their views are somehow overshadowed or restricted, like a beautiful painting, they are engrossed and overwhelmingly praising its beauty and wanting to be its owner but it did not cross their mind to find out who’s the painter.

Another similar situation when one is served with good and tasty meal, one feels like eating up the whole serving and it did not cross the mind who’s the person capable of cooking the delicious meal.

Human beings, in actual fact are able to see things through:

1. With the normal eye sight
2. With the ‘eyes’ of the mind – intellectual mind
3. With the ‘eyes’ of the heart or soul – spiritual mind

Seldom there exists in any individual these three ‘visions’. If someone sees the deep and thick forest, what he sees with his eyes are what he would describe, a thick ,lush green forest, a beautiful scenery.
If he sees with his intelectual mind, he would be see the timber and various types of wood which could generate wealth.
If he sees with his spiritual mind, he would be able to see the Greatness and Supremacy of God and all the wisdom associated with the creations of the forest.

Deep in his heart he would sense the Greatness of God. If someone looks at the ocean, physically what he sees is the vast and wide colection of blue water together with the high waves continuously thumping the beach or coastline.
If he looks with his intellectual mind, he would see the fish inside the ocean, ready to be caught for immediate sale to the customers.
If he looks with his spiritual mind, he would see and feel the Supremacy of God and His wisdom in creating the wide and deep ocean where not a single human being would know the various secrets hidden at the base of the ocean. One would then feel how tiny/dwarf he is towards God.

Those looking at the face of the earth, what he would see would be the earth, pebbles, stones and rocks. Those looking with their intellectual minds would be able to see richness of the earth consisting of the oil, gold, diamonds and various types of minerals hidden inside and right into the center of the earth
Those looking with their spiritual minds would be able to see the actions of God the All Mighty who has laid down the earth for all the human beings to live and devote themselves to God. Deep in their heart they would feel how kind and merciful God is. Even so, most human beings are heartless and what they see are the benefits giving them the worldly pleasures, fulfilling their desires.They are inspired by the worldly values attached to each of God’s creations.

They are unable to relate God behind each of His creations. The existence of the world is not bringing them to God. They are unable to see and feel with their heart as they are heartless, their soul are dead, unable to function as it should. They are not inspired towards the Hereafter and Heaven. Neither is there fear of Hell and God seems to have no role in their lives.

They could not feel the existence of God and even if they know God exists, it’s simply a knowledge, not a belief or faith. Hence, God is not a priority, there is no godly feeling in their hearts and they’re unable to feel they are God’s servants.
