Transcript of The Unseen World

In islamic contex, "Ghayb" is an Arabic word and refers to the unseen or unknown, in reference to Allah and the forces that shape the world.

The Qur'an states that mankind is unable to see Allah and his attributes. Belief in al-Ghaib is considered an important Muslim characteristic, as it allows for proper faith.

Ghayb includes belief in Allah, Angles, books, prophets, the last day and fate.

The Unseen World
Ayah Abdelgawad

Why do people claim God does not exist?
Simply because they do not want to have someone superior to them . People deny the fact that there is a god because they just want to live a life of disobedience ; YOLO life.
{This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance for those who are conscious (of Allah). Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them;} (Al-Baqarah 2: 2-3)

"We will show them our signs in the universe and in their ownselves until it becomes manifest to them that this is the truth. Is it not enough that thy lord do witness all things?" {Quran 41:53}
Allah reveals signs of his existence in the Quraan (The Quran is another sign )
Many scientific information is revealed in the Quraan .
Scientifically many things are not seen but we know are there from the signs around it.
For example, no one has ever seen protons or electrons but scientists discovered they exist based on the behavior of substances around it.
The Greatest Sign
Allah exists because we exist!

“And worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him.” (Surah an-Nisā’ 4:36)
Allah reveals certain things..
God reveals certain things from the unseen to His messengers:

He is the One who knows the unseen (ghayb), and He reveals His unseen (ghayb) to no one (72.26), except to the messenger He is pleased with, so He sends guards before of him and behind him (72.27) so that He knows that they (the messengers) have delivered the messages of their Lord. He encompasses what they have and He has reckoned everything in number. (72.28)

Allah was not going to leave the believers in the state you are in until He distinguishes the vile from the good. Allah would not let you know the unseen (ghayb), but He chooses whom He wills of His messengers. So believe in Allah and His messengers. If you believe and be pious then you will have a great reward. (3.179)
For instance, God revealed to Prophet Muhammad knowledge of past events which he could not have known about, so it is “ghayb.” After recounting in the Qur’an that He gave Prophet Zechariah custody of the little Mary and other events, God goes on to tell Prophet Muhammad:

These are tidings of the unknown (ghayb) which We reveal to you. You were not present with them when they cast lots with their sticks [to decide] who of them should become the guardian of Mary, nor were you present with them when they quarrelled [thereupon]. (3.44)

Having revealed to the Prophet the story of Prophet Noah, God reminds Muhammad that this is knowledge that neither he nor his people knew:

These are tidings of the unknown (ghayb) which We reveal to you. You did not know them nor did your people before this [the Qur’an]. So be patient; the [prosperous] end is for the pious. (11.49)
The Story of prophet Ibrahim
[6:78] And when he saw the moon rise with spreading light, he said: ‘This is my Lord.’ But when it set, he said, ‘If my Lord guide me not, I shall surely be of the people who go astray.’
[6:79] And when he saw the sun rise with spreading light, he said: ‘This is my Lord, this is the greatest.’ But when it set, he said, ‘O my people, surely I am clear of that which you associate with God.
[6:80] ‘I have turned my face toward Him Who created the heavens and the earth, being ever inclined to God, and I am not of those who associate gods with God.’
What is Mother Nature?
By reconsidering the word 'nature' in this context, you will be led directly to the Creator, the Originator, as the common mind understands the word.
What you describe is the Creator, the Author and Shaper, so why do you call Him nature?
‘These are but names which you have named — you and your fathers — for which Allah has sent down no authority.’ They follow naught but conjecture and what their souls desire, while there has already come to them guidance from their Lord.[53:24]
Our purpose is to attain paradise. Worshipping Allah and believing in him Alone guarentees jannah.
