Why it is important to rationally believe in Just One God?





The idea of a Supreme Power who is the First Cause of all things, the Creator and Ruler of heaven and earth has always been part of human nature from the beginning. He was not represented by images and had no temple or priests in His service. He was too exalted for an inadequate human cult. Hence there had been a primitive monotheism before people had started to worship a number of deities. Generally He faded from the consciousness of his people who formed images of many deities, His assistants, thus began the paganism. The name given to this divine Supreme Creator and Sustainer in English is GOD. Allah in Arabic, Yahweh in Hebrew. The belief of a Supreme deity who created the world and governs.  The belief on God was followed by His worship in different cultures. The relation of a group of human beings to God or the gods or, merely supernatural is known as religion. 

He sent messengers with revelations for guidance of people, to believe and worship just One God. The revelations, some recorded in the form of books were corrupted with the passage of time, which can easily be discovered with some effort. Aim was to keep the believe in one God alive in the human nature. Even if some one is not aware of any revealed book or message,  (people of interregnum) believe in one God is natural as   found among the primitive African & Australian tribes.

Hence if the final message of divine guidance (Quran) has not been delivered to someone, he is bound by nature and intellect to reach the conclusion about existence of one Supreme Creator, the God:
"We will show them Our signs in the universe and within their own beings until it will become manifest to them that it is the truth. Is it not enough about your Lord that He is witness to everything?" (Quran;41:53)
One has to make sincere effort and seek for help from God for guidance to the true path, here is a prayer:
"In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. All praise is due to God, the Lord of the Universe; the Beneficent, the Merciful; Lord of the Day of Judgement. You alone we serve, and to You alone we turn for help. Guide us to the straight path: the path of those You have blessed; not of those who have incurred Your wrath, nor of those who have gone astray." (Quran:1:1-7)


During the search for truth, If the believer in just one God, avoids evils and performs good deeds according to universally accepted moral codes and ethics, such a person can hope to ultimately achieve salvation (Also see, Quran;30:30, 28:59, 16:36, 22:17, 5:66, 22:67-69, 13:7, 91:7-10).

"Surely, God does not forgive that a partner is ascribed to Him, and He forgives anything short of that for whomsoever He wills. Whoever ascribes a partner to God commits a terrible sin".(Qur'an;4:48, 116)*
"SAY: He is the God; the One and Only. God the Eternal, the Uncaused Cause of All Being. "He begets not, and neither is He begotten; "and there is nothing that could be compared with Him". (Quran;112:1-4). 
"I ALONE AM GOD! I AM GOD and there is NONE LIKE ME"(Isaiah 46:9) 
"Be tolerant; enjoin what is right; and avoid the ignorant".(Quran;7:199) 
"As for those who are bent on denying the truth and on barring [others] from the path of God - all their [good] deeds will He let go to waste; whereas those who have attained to faith and do righteous deeds, and have come to believe in what has been bestowed from on high on Muhammad - for it is the truth from their Sustainer - [shall attain to God’s grace:] He will efface their [past] bad deeds, and will set their hearts at rest." (47:1-2)
"The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah - the which We have sent by inspiration to thee - and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him). (42:13)
"Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (2:62,5:69)
"To every People have We appointed rites and ceremonies which they must follow: let them not then dispute with thee on the matter, but do thou invite (them) to thy Lord: for thou art assuredly on the Right Way. (22:67)

Every one is urged to ponder and rationally believe in Just One God, the pure Monotheism, and the final guidance provided by Him. The books,   articles, videos, magazines and other material by "Peace Forum NetWork", managed by Aftab Khan may lead towards the same goal.  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* The purpose of verse (4:48) is not to tell man that he may commit any sin as long as he does not associate others with God in His divinity. The object is rather to impress upon those who had begun to regard polytheism as a trivial matter that it constitutes the most serious offence in God's sight, an offence so serious that while other sins may be pardoned this will not. (Also see 30:30, 28:59, 16:36, 22:17, 5:66, 22:67-69, 13:7, 91:7-10)
Polytheism, Shirk, IdolatryThe word širk comes from the Arabic root Š-R-K (ش ر ك), with the general meaning of "to share". In the context of the Quran, the particular sense of "sharing as an equal partner" is usually understood, so that polytheism means "attributing a partner to Allah".
"God is the Sovereign in the Universe. Whoever ascribes partners to God, or divinity to any of His creation, has indeed invented a tremendous sin. Allah will forgive any transgression but polytheism (SHIRK). Included in this category are those who worship their own desire (45:23), those who indulge in human worship and in sectarianism (30:31), (42:21), and those who follow man-made books in lieu of the Book of Allah (6:122), (6:137), and those who claim or believe in Revelation after the Qur'an, in any form, including claims of attaining Divine knowledge through mystical experience (6:62), (7:173), (7:191). And those who uphold Trinity (4:171), (5:72-73.) And those who claim that God has a son, and those who follow their religious leaders. "They take their rabbis, priests and monks to be their Lords* besides Allah. And they take as their Lord, the Messiah son of Mary. Yet they were commanded to worship but One God. There is no god but He. Praise and Glory to Him, He is far too Glorious for what they ascribe to Him. (*Talmud shows the Jewish superstition of ascribing divinity to Ezra, rabbis, saints, doctors of law and learned men. And the doctrine of Papal infallibility, divinity of saints and praying to them are common in the Roman Catholic Church).(Quran;9:31) Such people fall from the high station of humanity. Worshiping any entity other than Allah, sinks the human "Self" down to subhuman levels (22:31). But most of those who claim belief (and call themselves Muslims), indulge in SHIRK (12:106).[Translation by Dr.Shabbir Ahmed]
"So set thy face to the religion, a man of pure faith -- God's original upon which He originated mankind. There is no changing God's creation. That is the right religion; but most men know it not (Quran;30:30)

Is Atheism a mild form of mental disorder?

Robert Reich, the former U.S. labor secretary under President Bill Clinton, once wrote that ‘God is worse than terrorism’, arguing that followers of God pose a more significant threat to the 21st Century world than terrorists do and concluded “ the great conflict of the modern world will not be between the West and terrorism but between those who believe in the primacy of the individual and those who believe that human beings owe their allegiance and identity to a higher authority; between those who believe in science, reason, and logic and those who believe that truth is revealed through Scripture and religious dogma”. These are the lengths atheists go while trying to negate the existence of God. This process of negation involves playing of many mental games that stretches their psychological defense mechanisms. The three men, who popularized atheism in the 19th Century, had almost the same experiences early in their lives, and there is a common psychological pattern evident in their later rebellion. Thomas Henry Huxley, Sigmund Freud and Friedrich Nietzsche all had psychological struggles in their early in their lives. They all had cruel and domineering fathers suffered extreme shyness, depression and obsessive fears. Therefore, they made it their work to destroy God, who to them was a symbol of their fathers. Since the existence of God is a reality, an atheist mind protects itself from the reality through rejection of God’s existence using several psychological defense mechanisms such as rationalization, repression, displacement, suppression and denial.

Rationalization is an atheist’s favorite psychological defense mechanism. They rely on false reasoning that sounds logical to negate the reality of God. They will bombard you with thousands of reasons as to why God does not exist, and make them sound as logical as possible. John Pasquini, in his book Atheist Personality Disorder: Addressing a Distorted Mindset, points out that atheists are good at using pedantic language to convince themselves and others, as they fool themselves that they are intellectually superior, while in the real sense, they are mere rationalizers. Displacement is another popular coping mechanism that an atheist uses. They transfer their anger towards believers and belief systems. Ever wondered why the thing atheists are good at is attacking religion believers? It’s a coping mechanism. Over-relying on these defense mechanisms can lead to emotional immaturity and disjointed thinking that culminate in personality disorders.

There is enough proof that atheism is a personality disorder. Atheists have among the highest suicide rates in the world. Atheist countries have a suicide rate of 32 percent per every 100,000 people as compared to 4 per every 100,000 people in catholic countries and in protestant countries. Furthermore, they are the most, aggressive bitter and unhappy group in the society. They are less likely to get married twice as likely to get divorced and highly likely to have no children. Statistics from atheistic regimes indicate that atheists are among the most intolerant groups in the world. The most popular atheistic nations are the former Soviet Union, Vietnam and North Korea. According to Pasquini, the Soviets destroyed more than 42,000 churches between 1917 and 1969, leaving the country with less than 6,000 churches. North Korea destroyed more than 500 Buddhist temples, while Vietnam destroyed more than 700. 168 out of 270 suicide bombings that were carried out between 1980 and 2000 were not by Muslims but by Marxist atheists, including the bombing that killed President Ranasinge Premadasa of Sri Lanka in 1993, carried out by an atheist terrorist group known as Tamil Tigers.

The next time an atheist tries to engage you in an argument. Leave them alone. You don’t have to prove the existence of God to attention-seeking psychotics who wants to assert their intellectual superiority through psychological coping mechanisms. I find it odd that people go to the lengths of engaging them in television debates. You don’t have to prove that God exists. His existence is not debatable!!
