And if they turn away, then say: "Bear witness that it is we who have surrendered ourselves unto Him.” (Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 64) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  • 12. “ They do blaspheme who say: ‘Allah is (Jesus) Christ the son of Mary.’ But said Christ: ‘O children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord, and your Lord.’ Whoever joins other gods with Allah―Allah will forbid him the Garden and the Fire will be his abode.

  • 22. “Is then He Who creates like one that creates not? Will ye not receive admonition? If ye would count up the favours of Allah, never would ye be able to number them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. And Allah doth know what ye conceal and what ye reveal.” (Qur’an: An-Nahlu: 16: 17-19) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 23. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 24. “ Those whom they invoke besides Allah create nothing and are themselves created. (They are things) dead, lifeless: nor do they know when they will be raised up. Your God is One God: as to those who believe not in the Hereafter, their hearts refuse to know, and they are arrogant.” (Qur’an: An-Nahlu: 16: 20-22) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

  • 26. Does God exist ? What do we mean by “God” ? Who is “God”? Can there be more than one God? Can we know God ? What does He require of us? All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 27. “If indeed thou ask them who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law); they will certainly reply "Allah (God)." How are they then deluded away (from the truth)?” (Qur’an: Ankabut: 29: 61) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 28. Note: ‘Atheism ‘ is a new phenomena in the history of mankind and cannot be said to be natural. It is totally against the pure instinct of man, not to believe in a supernatural being - for this would only be replacing the idea of ‘God’ (the intelligent Force), with ‘nature’ (an unknown entity without any will nor intelligence, yet said to be the cause) capable of creating many amazing things in this universe. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 29. Historically, atheism or agnosticism came about because of rejection of certain ‘absurd myths attributed to God’, not an absolute rejection of the idea of God. In the West, there are now scientists who called themselves as “Deists” – who believe in the existence of a ‘God’ but not that as taught or preached by their mainstream religionists, because their scientific research ultimately convinced them to reject ‘atheism’ which they once held.

  • 31. CONSIDER THIS VERSE : “ Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief.” (Qur’an: Tur: 52: 35-36) THIS REQUIRES US TO REFLECT … All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 32. FIRSTLY 1. DID MAN CREATED HIMSELF? All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013) IMPOSSIBLE
  • 33. SECONDLY 2. DID MAN AND THE UNIVERSE IMPOSSIBLE COME OUT OF NOTHING? “NOTHING CAN COME OUT FROM NOTHING” All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 34. THIRDLY 3. WHEN THE PREVIOUS TWO THESIS CANNOT BE POSSIBLE, THEN THERE MUST BE THE A “CREATOR”, SOURCE OF THIS EXISTENCE WHO ALONE WAS NOT CREATED. (THE BEING WE REFER TO AS ‘GOD’ – the Divine, the Uncreated Creator) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013) THIS IS THE ONLY POSSIBILITY. FOR THE VERY WORD ‘ CREATION ’ IMPLIES NEED FOR A ‘ CREATOR ’. WITHOUT WHICH, THE QUESTION AS TO OUR EXISTENCE, HOW CREATIONS BEGUN DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE –
  • 35. ‘Law’ of probability – between “will” and “chance” 1: 10 ⁼ 0.10 1: 10³ ⁼ 0. 001 1: 10 ¹⁰ ⁼ 0.0000000001 “The greater the odd means, It is most unlikely i.e. It is too remote, for it to occur merely by chance ......” The method WHAT ARE THE ODDS? n ! Pn,r = (n-r)! In other words, It is MOST LIKELY the outcome of a ‘will’ “probability of several boxes stacking - one on top of each other .....” All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 36. ‘Law’ of probability – between “will” The method and “chance” Consider the probability for life on The proof earth. Consider your biological beginning. Consider other wondrous ‘miracles’ in creation. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013) The closest evidence The apparent Signs
  • 37. CONSIDER : to read full article: http: // introductiontotauhid.blogspot.com The Brain is the centre which controls, directs and coordinates the varied activities of all the innumerable organs of the body. It receives messages from each of the senses, interprets them, sends the proper replies to the organs concerned so that the body reacts appropriately, and registers all the information received in the storage memory. Think of a huge telephone exchange in continual contact with every man, woman and child on earth, sending and receiving messages to and from each other one every few seconds ­and you have a faint idea of the incredibly complex organization of the brain ..... All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 38. CONSIDER : Obvious conclusion From the foregoing, we cannot imagine that the brain is just a lump of matter, accidentaly placed in our head! On the contrary, it is invested with profound significance. The scientific fact shows that its existence and sustainment requires a "Will" or an "Intelligent Being” who is both its Creator and the Sustainer. It is impossible for anything so meaningful and complex and yet orderly in its function to exist 'without the need for Allah, the Absolute One God, Who is the Creator, Sustainer, Nourisher of the Universe. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 39. CONSIDER : Animal wisdom speaks irresistibly of a good Creator who infused instinct into otherwise helpless little creatures. The young salmon spends years at sea, then comes back to his own river, and travels up the very side of the river into which flows the tributary where he was born. What brings him back so precisely? If you transfer him to another tributary he will know at once that he is off his course and he will fight his way down and back to the main stream and then turn up against the current to finish his destiny more accurately. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 40. CONSIDER : Even more difficult to solve is the mystery of eels. These amazing creatures migrate at maturity from all ponds and rivers everywhere those from Europe across thousands of miles of ocean ­ all bound for the same abysmal deeps near Bermuda. There they breed and die. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 41. CONSIDER : The little ones, with no apparent means of knowing anything except that they are in a wilderness of water, nevertheless find their way back not only to the very shore from which their parent came but thence to the rivers, lakes or little ponds ­ so that each body of water is always populated with eels. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 42. CONSIDER : No American eel has ever been caught in Europe, no European eel in African waters. Nature has even delayed the maturity of the European eel by a year or more to make up for it's longer journey. Where does the directing impulse originate? All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 43. CONSIDER : A wasp will overpower a grasshopper, dig a hole in the earth, sting the grasshopper in exactly the right place so that it does not die but becomes unconscious and lives on as a form of preserved meat. Then the wasp will lay her eggs handily so that her children when they hatch can nibble without killing the insect on which they feed; to them dead meat would be fatal. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 44. CONSIDER : The mother then flies away and dies; she never sees her young. Surely the wasp must have done all this right the first time and every time, or else there would be no wasp. Such mysterious techniques cannot be explained by adoption; they were bestowed. to read full article: http: // introductiontotauhid.blogspot.com http://introductiontotauhid.blogspot.com/2008/08/article-seven-reasons-why-scientist.html All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)

Exalted and Great (beyond measure)*!" (Qur’an: Isra’: 17: 42-43) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013)
  • 50. “Parallel lines are two lines, when extended to infinity, they will not meet nor will the distance between them changes.” Extend to infinity NOTE: *God is the infinite being. So by “infinite” it means, “limitless, unending, without end, boundless, beyond measure, etc.” All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2013) ∞

  • 52. SUPPOSE: If you are to conceptually expand this box to infinity, can there be another box outside or besides it? IF YOU SAY “YES!
