If you do not believe in God, you will live in a world that is God-less. And I really think that is a proof for the existence of God, because if you believe in God you will live in a world that is filled with God. But if you disbelieve in God you will constantly be reaffirmed in your disbelief… And that’s why atheists can’t understand people that believe in God and why people who believe in God can’t understand atheists. BECAUSE BOTH OF THEM ARE SEEING A PROOF FOR THEIR BELIEF.
A hadith states that Allah swt said: “I am to my servant as he sees me”.
"I am in the opinion of my servant".
So if my servant thinks I’m nothing… (Smile) that’s what he finds…
And that’s what the atheist will say to you today “look around you!! How can you believe in God!?!”.
And the response: “Well thats my whole point!! I’m looking around.. How can I not believe in God!?.”
And that is why if someone tells you that they don’t believe in God, you should ask: explain to me what your definition of God is, because we might not believe in that same thing - in other words I might agree with you that I don’t believe in that thing."
