Man Made Gods
Well the purpose of this article is not to abuse or underestimate neither any ones religion nor any ones God. Well it may sound typical that how come possible man made Gods in many religion. In Muslim community we often find people visiting graves and shrines to full fill their desires and wishes. They often pay frequent visits to shrine and do offer many articles there so that their desires may be full filled. They trust more on shrines and graves than God who created them as well as others. They often undertake many journeys to reach the shrine at specific day and also offer huge amount there. They have a misconception that their desires and lust would be full filled then and there. They put forth their grievances and problems before the shrines or graves and expect to be full filled or evacuate them from problematic situations. People are also found worshipping sun, moon, stars, trees, animal, water, stones and so on. Actually all these and many more are the creation of God. Hence it is rightly said that "Obey the Creator and Not the Creation" they are the man made Gods by human beings. How can we kill a God? If God were in the form of any idol than stone is a non-living things and we cannot expect any loss or profit from the stones. Similarly people are found wearing rings studded with some precious stones, so that it may benefit them in their business or problem and clear some sorrowful clouds. How come possible? A stone benefit a person when it is a non-living substance. Similarly animals cannot be a God some animals add beauty to our environment while some is used for domestication as well as some for food. Humans, plants and animals are interdependent on each other and are also a creation of God. Similarly planets are also the creation of God. All planets of solar system as well as innumerable things in space are governed by His specific laws followed by seasons. They perform their duties according to the laws of God and not of human. God's creation cannot be termed as God but we ought to find out the true concept of God so do test your God be it original or man made. We ought to think mentally, logically and spiritually to find true God. Who governs this whole universe? Every human beings starting from Adam and Eve (Peace and Blessings upon Them) and many more to come till this universe would be there is His creation. His Blessings and Mercy is very vast. He loves cares and feeds all livings things be it below the sky or on land or under water or beneath the water. Our life and death is in His hand. No one in this world could ever find the mystery of death as to when how and where a person would die. It is known only to God and not anyone. He can do anything He wants He has many Angels to do His work that too very smoothly and with ease. God is only one and has no partners or sons and daughters. So believe in true God instead of man made Gods.
