Instead of Asking People, Why Not Try Asking God Directly If He is There?
We often come across people who curiously ask us: “Where is God?” The problem with such an approach is that though they are asking the right question, it is misdirected. Why ask the creation to tell you about the Supreme Creator? Can’t God speak for Himself? If He is really there, then He is quite capable of communicating with His creation. So instead of asking self proclaimed middle-men about God, you owe it to yourself to get a direct appointment. God can answer you Himself in a manner that is specific to you.
People think that God is somewhere very distant, but the Qur’an teaches that He is very near:
“And when My servants ask you concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.” (2:186)
In fact He is nearer to us than our jugular vein:
“And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein. ” (50:16)
If the words of God spoken in the first person in the Qur’an: “I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me…” are true, and if God is really that close to us that He knows our inner most thoughts, then then it follows that you should address God directly for a sign or guidance. If He is really there, then He will show you the proofs about His existence.
So instead of asking intermediaries about God, for a change why not ask God directly, one on one? If you are serious, then all you have to do is ask.
Just Try And See!
Why not try it now, and see for yourself, at this very moment in time. Ask God for His guidance and see if you receive a sign in your life. Just repeat the words of the prayer below and see what happens:
“It is You we serve and You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path!” (1:5-6)
