"TOWARDS UNDERSTANDING ISLAM" is the translation of an outclass book on Islamic understanding by Syed Abul A'la Maududi. Maudidi's name deserves no introduction in the realm of understanding the true spirit and essence of Islam. His services for the propagation of a pure and naive figure of Islam are unforgettable. The book explores, as is evident from the title, his opinions about the true understanding of the essential concepts in Islam.

Where Is Allah?

Where Is Allah?

(Foreword of the book "Where Is Allah?")

"Praise be to Allah. I thank Him, seek His Guidance and his Forgiveness. Peace and blessings be upon the one who communicated the Message, fulfilled the trust, and did not leave an excuse for anyone and upon whom it was sent,

“This Qur’an hath been revealed to me by inspiration,that I may warn you and all whom it reaches.”(A1-An`am: 19)

I have read the message of his excellency, Sheikh Abdel-Rahman Al-Sungiri the preacher in the Ministry of endowment, United Arab Emirates, and the guidein the House of His highness, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan for the patronageof new Muslims, which is entitled (A Message to the One Who Asked, “Whereis God?”
Consequently, my own faith and conviction were increased through these rational and tangible proofs. They permeated through sound mind, without argumentand only opponent is convinced to the point where they are unable to argue.This message is enhanced with irrefutable rational and decisive textual proofs.So, where is the way for the atheists after all ways are blocked before them.The atheists used to imagine fallacious arguments to cast doubt upon simple-mindedpeople. Theirs is a short time, after being challenged with the clearestrational proofs through debate, that they are become like floating-dust,scattered about,

“Like a mirage in sandy deserts, which the man parched with thirst mistakes for water; until he comes up to it, he finds it to be nothing.”(An-Nur: 39)

Once a Bedouin was asked: how did you know Allah'? He replied, dung leadsto a camel, footsteps lead to a walker heavens with constellations, earthwith tracks do not all of these lead to the Omniscient, the Well-Acquainted. Truly, this universe is nothing but an expression of rational proof of the existence of its Maker, Who created it in the highest perfection. Allah the Almighty said in His Book,

“He Who created the seven heavens one above another: no want of proportion wilt thou see in the creation of the Most Gracious. Again turn thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out.”(Al-Mulk: 3-4)

The scientists of weather tried to predict the rainfall in a particular place,but they failed! why? Because Allah the Almighty did not will for the rainto fall and to Allah is the decree. Allah the Almighty said in His Book,

“Seest thou not that Allah makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap? –then wilt thou see rain issue forth from their midst. And He sends down from the sky mountain masses (of clouds) wherein is hail: He strikes therewith whom He pleased andHe turns it away from whom He pleased.”(An-Nur: 43)

Yes, Allah gives the rain to whom He pleases and turns it away from whomHe pleases. So, the will of others has nothing to do with Allah. Their attemptsfailed because Allah did not will this matter to happen, and this is theroot of all causes, if could we only grasp it.

Belief in the Unseen is the striking feature of the true believer. Allah the Almighty praised those who believe in the Unseen in more than one verse.

As for those who believe only in what they see or feel by their senses wesay to them, the senses may be deluded by magic or disease or any other reason.So, their realization will be false, as the man said: 'The eye may deny thelight of the sun due to ophthalmia, the mouth may deny the taste of the fooddue to illness.' Therefore, we can ask, "Are all creatures realized by senses?How can we sense electricity, air, pains, and gravity except through theirinfluence?" All these answers are made clear by the author of this message,may Allah reward him in the best way.

We ask Allah to grant success for all people to believe in what the messengers were sent down according to the will of Allah, He suffices us and He is the best One to protect.
