Does God exist? Evidence for existence of God
Yes God exists:
(1) We mortals are finite beings with faculties that are limited in scope and nature.Our haring for instance responds to sound waves that lie within 200 to 18000 cycles per second.
Therefore does it mean that, because we are not able to hear sounds below lower and above the higher limits stated above, those other sound waves do not exist?
In a similar way just because we cannot hear God or quantify His existence using a measure acceptable to mere mortals does not mean He is non-existent.
(2) Our eyes respond to light waves that lie between ultra-violet and infrared within the electromagnetic spectrum.
Does this mean what we cannot see with our own eyes does not exist? Clearly we now know from science that certain things are visible with support of instruments that we as humans have just discovered and have been able to build over the course of the last few decades.
Hence - just because we cannot see God does not mean He does not exist - maybe as humans we have not achieved a level of intelligence required to see God yet, especially if we are still grappling with the term 'does He or does He not exist?'.
Our conscious minds are also limited in their comprehension of realities in a similar way to the above two examples.Faith should be based on what is not visible but can be comprehended and deduced from all the evidence that we have at our disposal.
Looking around us we see created things that clearly point to a Creator, Designer and Sustainer.As we often turn to science for solutions these days, let’s see how science approaches this problem.
A world renowned scientist Sir Fred Hoyle who was an ardent atheist carried out research into the possibility of life having begun on earth spontaneously.He and his colleague were shocked by the final result of their research published in a book titled - 'Evolution from Space' that they both had to revise there thinking.
They arrived at the same conclusion that odds against life having ignited accidentally on earth were staggering, in mathematical terms 10 to the power of 40,000, in maths and science odds exceeding 10 to the power of 50 are generally considered impossible.

- How Does Allah (God) Speak To Us?
ALLAH (GOD) ALSO SPEAKS TO US Sometimes we are just not ready to hear or accept what God (Allah) says to us, which is why we think we are alone and God does not speak with us.
- The Wise Woman
A very wise woman who was travelling in the mountains came across a precious stone in a stream. The following day she met another traveller who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food with this person. The hungry traveller saw
Some good Dr Zakir Naik videos to watch on the subject of God!
Sir Fred Hoyle said – “to say that the universe has come into existence coincidentally, is like saying that a hurricane went over a junk yard and left behind a perfectly assembled Boeing Jumbo aircraft ready to take off.”
The Holy Quran tells us:
"And on earth there are signs (of God's existence visible) to all who are endowed with certainty, just as there are signs within your own selves; can you not see?" (Quran 51:21-22)
An example of the complexity in ourselves:
There are over 100,000 electro-chemical actions/reactions going on in our brains every second.We have approximatly 100 trillion cells (no one knows how many exactly) in our body. Our bodies are very complex yet we are still not willing to accept that a Creator must have been behind the creation of such complexity.
Are you willing to deny God simply because you are not able to see Him or hear Him?
Just like the computer you are using to read this hub was designed, built and programmed by a creator for a purpose in a similar manner you have been created for a reason!
