THE BOREDOM OF GOD CREATED HUMANITY
The Big Bang was more like a Whisper
God was always there, and will always be there. Many civilizations believe in re-occurring scenes of life. The world ends and then is created again. And others believe in evolving life, janam after janam, as a never ending solution to existence. In the stillness of things, a sign was heard, which scientists call the Big Bang, the Egyptians call the wakening up of the Sphinx of Giza. The first NOOR, the first light. In a lighter vein, we can say that God got bored with an easy existence, and created the MAN, not only as an ANGEL, but to add spice to life, the DEVIL too. And God pitted Good versus Evil, and engendered the Adventures of life. Man added colour to life itself.
A sentence we hear, again and again, is that ‘God created man in his own image’. In the Quranic reference we hear of Man being ‘Ashraf-ul-maklooqat’. But we hear the NINETY NINE NAMES OF ALLAH as being merely 99 behavioral attributes of the Al-Mighty. And one outstanding attribute is of Allah being a ‘Mussaver’, an artist, a designer of infinite dimensions. And we are left breathless as we observe the artistic talents of the Al-Mighty. The world, the universe, everything is so beautiful, it sends shivers through us, as we praise the One and Only God who created so much beauty.
The Artist in God elicits praise in us, as we sing ‘Hamd’ to His creations. The study of God can never be complete without our study of these 99 attributes. And of course there are infinite other attributes which God has hidden from us. If other civilizations study these ASMA HUSNA, they will learn so much about us! God bless Planet Earth!
