All the objects of the universe continuously maintain a special equilibrium. If this were disrupted, things would become harmful instead of beneficial. If we put a piece of metal into water it will sink instantly. But water has been bound by a special law laid down by God, which makes it possible for wood or iron, which has been given the shape of a boat not to sink. Similarly, there are innumerable bodies in space, which should apparently fall down, but are bound by a special law which keeps them rotating in their orbits with great precision.
Man has not been created by man. He has been created by God. Then he has been placed in a world which is full of blessings. However, on discovering his freedom, man becomes so vain and insolent that he shows no gratitude to his greatest Benefactor.
A verse in the Quran says: "Do you not see how God has subjected everything on the earth to you, and the ships that sail on the sea by His command. He holds back the sky from falling down on earth, except with His permission. God is most compassionate, and most merciful to mankind" (22:65).
The entire universe is a proof in itself. Man is required to believe theoretically in the same realities of which the universe is a practical demonstration.
If man were to study the system of the universe, giving ear to its silent language, he would receive inspiration and enlightenment from it, and he would be able to read all the divine realities in it as if it were an open book. In it he would see the Creator fully mirrored.
Finding God is entirely possible. The only condition is that man should seriously pursue His discovery as the greatest goal in his life.
