The thunder praises the glory of God

Cont'd from page 3

Yet, majority of people set up very insignificant and very powerless God’s creatures like Mary, Jesus, Ali, Muhammad, Ram, Budha, Pope, ulema (religious scholars), or imams as partners beside God to rival Him!

[2:165]  Yet, some people set up idols to rival GOD, and love them as if they are GOD. Those who believe love GOD the most. If only the transgressors could see themselves when they see the retribution! They will realize then that all power belongs to GOD alone, and that GOD's retribution is awesome.

[7:143] When Moses came at our appointed time, and his Lord spoke with him, he said, “My Lord, let me look and see You.” He said, “You cannot see Me. Look at that mountain; if it stays in its place, then you can see Me.” Then, his Lord manifested Himself to the mountain, and this caused it to crumble. Moses fell unconscious. When he came to, he said, “Be You glorified. I repent to You, and I am the most convinced believer.”

[10:18] They worship beside GOD idols that possess no power to harm them or benefit them, and they say, “These are our intercessors at GOD!” Say, “Are you informing GOD of something He does not know in the heavens or the earth?” Be He glorified. He is the Most High; far above needing partners.

The thunder praises the glory of God out of reverence for Him  It strikes in accordance with the will of God.


[13:13]  The thunder praises His glory, and so do the angels, out of reverence for Him. He sends the lightning bolts, which strike in accordance with His will. Yet, they argue about GOD, though His power is awesome.

How many human beings praise the glory of God out of reverence!?How many of them submit to the will of God!?

[13:16] Say, “Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?” Say, “GOD.” Say, “Why then do you set up besides Him masters who do not possess any power to benefit or harm even themselves?” Say, “Is the blind the same as the seer? Is darkness the same as the light?” Have they found idols besides GOD who created creations similar to His creations, to the point of not distinguishing the two creations? Say, “GOD is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Supreme.”

[12:103] Most people, no matter what you do, will not believe.
[12:104] You are not asking them for any money; you simply deliver this reminder for all the people.
[12:105] So many proofs in the heavens and the earth are given to them, but they pass by them, heedlessly!
[12:106] The majority of those who believe in GOD do not do so without committing idol worship.

[1:2] Praise be to GOD, Lord of the universe.

New Submitter in South Africa


I have recently become a Moslem at my masjid (mosque), after growing up as a Christian. I accepted Islam because of my firm belief in the Oneness of GOD, but that does not mean for me a rejection of my entire heritage. I grew up in a firm Reformed church environment, which despite its belief in the trinity could have much in common with Islam.

I have found however that the Moslems at the masjid find their security in the Hadith and not the Quran. To me this is strange, as I believe in the authority of Scripture alone.

Do you have people in South Africa that are related to your organization that I can perhaps make contact with?

I would love to hear from you.
