The Signs Of God To All Mankind
The Most High shows His signs to people from birth until they die until they are convinced of the Uniqueness of God. He says in the Quran:
“We will show them Our Signs in the light and in them, until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth …” (Quran 41:53).
The dead body of Ramses II The Egyptain Pharaoh in the era of Prophet Moses(PBUH), was discovered in 1898, Its age is approximately 3000 years old and it was found by the Red Sea and is now on display in the Royal Mummies Museum in Cairo Egypt.
The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAW) 1400 years ago:
Today we will preserve your body so you can be a sign for people who come after you. Surely many people are headless of our signs.
‘This is a proclamation for the people, to be warned herewith, and to let them know that He is only on God, and for those who possess intelligence to take heed’
Here is an example, when the Lord with the help of a sign indicates to man the fallacy of his pagan belief. In the southeastern jungle region of the Amazon, an ancient tribe built a new hut for its idol called Squatsch, who embodied the God of all creatures. The next day a young man entered the hut to bow before God. While he lay prostrate before the one whom he considered Creator and Giver of food, an old dog ran into the hut. The young man rose and saw the dog, raising one paw, urinating on their idol.
In a rage, a young man drove the dog out of the temple, but as soon as the anger subsided, realized that the idol could not be the Lord of the universe. “The Lord must be something else,” he thought. Oddly enough, the dog, pissing on the idol, became a sign for the young man, carrying a divine message about the fallacy of his beliefs. It freed man from blindly following the traditional paganism for their tribe. As a result, a person has the opportunity to choose whether to seek a real God or continue to make mistakes as before.
In the Qur’an, the Most High recalls the story of Abraham:
“Thus We showed Abraham (Ibrahim) the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, that he might become one of the convinced.
When the night covered him with its darkness, he saw a star and said: “Here is my Lord!” When she rolled up, he said: “I do not like those who roll.”
When he saw the rising moon, he said: “This is my Lord!” When she rolled up, he said: “If my Lord does not guide me on the right path, then I will become one of the lost people.”
When he saw the rising sun, he said: “This is my Lord! It is more than others. ” When it came, he said: “O my people! I am not involved in what you associate with your companions
I sincerely turned my face to Him who created the heavens and the earth, and I do not belong to the polytheists! “(Quran 6: 75-79).
As mentioned earlier, the prophets came to all nations and tribes to support the innate natural faith of man in God and the need to worship Him, as well as to see the divine truth in the everyday signs of God. Although most of the teachings of these prophets were distorted, something still remained unchanged and helped the person make a choice between true and false. The influence of the divine message can be judged by the Ten Commandments in the Jewish Torah, later adopted by Christian teaching, and also by the laws forbidding killing, stealing, and committing adultery in many of today’s societies of the ancient and present world.
The signs of God to all nations and at all times, together with His Revelation, give man the opportunity to see the only true God (Allah).
Hence, each soul will be asked for believing in God and accepting the truth of religion – Islam, which means complete obedience to the will of Allah (God).
In conclusion, we ask the Almighty to lead us the direct path that He showed us, and also to bestow His mercy on us, for He is the Most Gracious and Merciful. Our prayers are addressed to God – the Creator and Lord of all worlds, and peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon Prophet Muhammad, as well as all previous prophets and their true followers!
