Returning Back to God

Most people believe in the existence of God. Among those who believe in God, there are those who worship Him daily, showing their thankfulness and gratitude for the blessings He has given them to live another day on earth.

However, Satan has won the minds of the some believers by influencing the innocent to commit the most blasphemous sin of all, idol-worship. He has been trying his best to influence the innocent believers to place powerless idols next to the Creator against their will. Most of these believers are siding with Satan supporting his claims that God alone is not enough. Satan convinced them that they should mention other names besides God’s name in order to complete their worship of God.

[39:45] When GOD ALONE is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink with aversion. But when others are mentioned beside Him, they become satisfied.

The truth is that as long as other names are mentioned besides God,

the believers will inevitably not worship Him alone. Even Satan told God that the majority of believers are unappreciative in their worship to God alone. Satan is the master of hypnosis that has influenced innocent believers and made them to drift away from God’s grace.

[7:17] “I will come to them from before them, and from behind them, and from their right, and from their left, and You will find that most of them are unappreciative.”

[15:39-42]  He said, “My Lord, since You have willed that I go astray, I will surely entice them on earth; I will send them all astray. Except those among Your worshipers who are devoted absolutely to You alone.” He said, “This is a law that is inviolable. You have no power over My servants. You only have power over the strayers who follow you.”

When some believers are reminded to worship God alone and not to place any idols beside Him, they turn back on their heels and run away from the truth. 

The reason for this is answered in the verse below.

[18:57] Who are more evil than those who are reminded of their Lord’s proofs, then disregard them, without realizing what they are doing. Consequently, we place shields on their hearts to prevent them from understanding it (the Quran), and deafness in their ears. Thus, no matter what you do to guide them, they can never ever be guided.

It is due to the strong ego that we all have that makes the majority turn against the path of God Almighty. The hearts and minds of the innocent believers have been polluted with false innovations and lies, falling into Satan’s trap for so long, unable to break free. These poor souls have become spiritually disabled on the inside while their bodies are physically able. And because of the disability in their souls not giving the attention that it deserves, the physical body overtakes the soul making the person forget about God completely.
