In essence, it is impossible for such a Supernatural being to be perceived by man, using senses that in many instances, corresponds with man’s own experience or observations. Exploring God’s existence within the confines of sensory perception, often tend to overlook the reality that, sensory perception has limitations such as enabling man to only a single mode of being and cannot explore other dimensions related to existence. Through sensory perception, man cannot progress above the outer aspects related to a phenomena. On this note, God’s existence cannot be perceived in a manner familiar to mankind. It is impossible for sensory perception to result in a vision that is realistic since the value of sensory perception entails the practical realm. Relying on sensory perception does not help in terms of solving issues related to existence or creation. Conversely, expert testimonies is only reliable for the confirmation of the existence of God by considering the origin of the source. For example, God used prophets and messengers by providing them with knowledge in infinite terms to prove His existence. In addition the confirmation of God’s existence through expert testimonies, has to provide evidence in terms of signs related to God that surrounds mankind. However, in day to day life, expert testimonies may not result in a conclusive existence of God, since mankind is susceptible to believing persons they trust around them, and who, may provide false testimonies. In this regard, expert testimonies are only reliable in terms of their qualification criteria that includes consistency, expertise, honesty, integrity and knowledge. On the same issue of confirming God’s existence, logical inference provides the most ideal means of understanding God’s existence. Logical inference posit that, every finite being is subject to the law of cause and effect, and as a result, it only means that there is a creator. On the same note, the creation itself, is subject to a plan, wisdom and knowledge, and does not exist accidentally. In addition, logical inference highlights on the assumption that since God is the Ultimate Creator, then no one could have created God. Further, logical inference provides a rational conclusion to God’s existence compared to sensory perception and expert testimonies. In essence, logical inference views God as unique from other finite beings because, if He had been of the same nature of mankind, then God would have needed a creator. Q.2: The creed of faith in Islam rejects all kinds of other gods and declares Allah as the only God. Eight types of gods/deities that many people associate with God or worship instead of God were discussed in class. Part A: Describe why (based on what reasons and logic) those eight types of gods are considered as false gods and not worthy of human's worship in Islam. Provide separate reasoning for each type. According to the creed related to the Islam faith, Allah is not equal to any finite being and His uniqueness reveals Him as the only entity that believers need to worship and show unconditional obedience. In essence, illah is non-existent apart from Allah as the One God. Worshipping other deities is contrary to the message of Allah in verse (21:25) that says, “There is no other deity, but I; Worship and serve Me”. As a result, a violation of Allah’s “Oneness”, is considered as a sin in the Islam faith (Shirk).
