Assalamu Alaikum! (May Peace Be upon You)
I have come across a few atheists in this short life I have lived. And I have compiled them into four types.
1. The True Atheist
This type of Atheist sincerely believes there is no God and believes in the theory of evolution that we all came from apes though, there is absolutely no proof of this. I would like to say if we all evolved from apes , there should be no apes left on the planet. They should all be humans by now.
As Muslims we do believe in evolution but the only evolution that ever took place was that the first man Prophet Adam was 30 feet tall and throughout the years , the height of men kept decreasing till now approx.6-7ft) and this will keep decreasing till the end of time when man will just be 4 feet ( This information is obtained from the sayings of Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him)).
2. The Emotional Atheist
This type of atheist used to believe in God. But, then he/she suffered from some emotional upheaval maybe a family member died or they see the poverty,death and destruction in the world and wonder if God is indeed there, all this wouldn’t happen.
I would like to explain this.
In Islam, God says this world is temporary and it was designed to test us for the Hereafter as to which one of us is good enough to attain Paradise. Allah will test us in our Health, Wealth, Our Self and all that is dear to us. So, we should believe in Him and Be Patient. Allah loves the patient , because when evil befalls a believer , he is patient and keeps his cool and says, Verily this is from my Lord, The Most High.
Allah describes Paradise in the Qur’an where all the believers will go. There will be no sickness, pain or ill-will there. No calls of nature, amazing food how much ever you eat you will never get fat, eternal youth, houses of gold and silver whose mortar is musk, rivers of milk and honey, the list is endless.
This life is temporary,death is a surety. So, follow the religion of God, Islam.
3. The Sinner Atheist
This atheist does not want to believe in God or religion because he cannot “enjoy”. He/she follows his lusts and desires drinking, gambling, fornicating, homosexuality etc. Well, this life is short. Throwing away your soul to the devil and wanting to spend an eternity in Hell-fire is not a wise choice. But, its your soul and your wish.
There are halal ways of enjoyment that is more happy and fulfilling.
4. The Confused Atheist
This type of atheist is confused about everything and has a lot of unanswered questions. This person doesn’t know what to believe and is constantly searching for the Truth.
I would suggest you read the Qur’an . It has the answers to all the questions of humanity. Here is the link of the English Translation
So, that is all everyone :).
Love you all ❤ ❤ ❤
