  • Muslims believe they cannot know the nature of God/Allah and as such are not to think on or meditate on the nature of God. Muslims believe in knowing the attributes of God but never to presume knowing Him because He is beyond and greater than everything perceived by man. Anything, which exists, must have some positive attributes. Muslims believe God is a being and He exists. He is not just an idea in our minds. Muslims believe God is not part of the world but distinct from it though He is everywhere by His knowledge and mercy.
  • Hi, I am not sure what you mean by that. But I appreciate you asking about my way of life. If you mean what He looks like and all, we hear and we obey, but we do not make pictures, we do not and cannot imagine. He is not like His creation. Comparing Him to creation is blasphemous. He is not present everywhere physically, yet He is All-Knower, All-Seeing, All-Hearing. The reward for those who follow the right path, this will one of their rewards in Paradise--Seeing Him in His true form. Moses (peace be upon his soul) asked God that he wanted to see Him, but God told him he would not be able to and simply to look at the mountain. When He saw the light on the mountain, and even he did not see Him really, the mountain fell down, and Moses fainted, and asked God to forgive him for asking. God has 99 names and attributes that are known to us by way of the Quran and the Sunnah. I am not sure if this is what you were also curious about. Thanks again, and may God help you to better understand this beautiful way of life, amen.
