Abu Hanifa and some Athiests

Some athiests once questioned Imam Abu Hanifa (may Allah be pleased with him) what proof he had of the existance of the creator (mighty and majestic), and they said he had to convince them or suffer.

He told them, "Leave me alone! I must think about a strange event that has been reported to me. I have been told that there is a ship at sea, heavily laden with various kinds of merchandise; and although there is no one on board to steer and guard her, it comes and goes by herself, ploughing through enormous waves and going where she pleases."

They told him, "No intelligent man would say such a thing."

He replied, "Wretches! And yet you say that all these existant beings, in the higher and lower worlds, and every intricately precise thing they contain, have no maker?"

At this they were dumbfounded, and, returning to the truth, they entered Islam at his hands.

    That's the most stupid argument I've ever heard. You are a fanatic and have no idea what you are talking about. When will you idiots realize that your god does not exist? Where was he when the recent Air France plane crashed. How many innocent children have to suffer in the world because it's part of God's plan. There is no God. God is dead. You just haven't woken up yet. But you will. When you die and you realize the cold truth of the emptiness of an eternity of nothingness you will regret the self righteous bull you peddled in this life. Wake up fool.

  2. Dear Friend,

    Have you actually thought about the arguement?

    For to negate something you must first accept it. So you have to know something before denying it. It is about God's mercy that you can deny Him.

    We are not on this world for no reason. There is a reason for creation. Mass murderers and good people don't end up in the same place. That's the reason for judgement day.

    Know you are very close to becoming a Muslim. The Islamic creed is There is no diety but God. So you are a closer than you think.
