Ignorance Is Your New Best Friend

Assalamualaikum, everybody!!

You know, sometimes we can be very ignorant, don't you think?  We often think that our ideas are all right in a way, using laws and formulae to figure things out and manipulating people away from the truth.  Some can even make us doubt our own religion, shaking our faith and letting us astray from Allah's path.

But not this young lad.  He put his prof. in his place.  I smiled reading this.  Read it till the end aites?? ;-)


Professor : You are a Muslim, aren't you, son?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor : So, you believe in GOD?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor : Is GOD good?

Student : Sure.

Professor : Is GOD all powerful?

Student : Yes.

Professor : My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him.  Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill.  But GOD didn't.  How is this GOD good then?  Hmm?

*The student was silent*

Professor : You can't answer, can you?  Let's start again, young fella.  Is GOD good?

Student : Yes.

Professor : Is Satan good?

Student : No.

Professor : Where does Satan come from?

Student : From.....GOD.

Professor : That's right.  Tell me, is there evil in the world?

Student : Yes.

Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn't it?  And GOD did make everything.  Correct?

Student : Yes.

Professor : So who created evil?

*Student didn't answer*

Professor : Is there sickness?  Immorality?  Hatred?  Ugliness?  All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor : So, who created them?

*Student had no answer*

Professor : Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you.  Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?

Student : No, sir.

Professor : Tell us if you have ever heard GOD?

Student : No, sir.

Professor : Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?

Student : No, sir.  I'm afraid I haven't.

Professor :  Yet you still believe in Him?

Student : Yes.

Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist.  What do you say to that, son?

Student : Nothing.  I only have my faith.

Professor : Yes, faith.  And that is the only problem science has.

Student : Professor, is there such thing as heat?

Professor : Yes.

Student : Is there such thing as cold?

Professor : Yes.

Student : No, sir.  There isn't.

*The lecture hall became very quiet at this turn of events*

Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat.  But we don't have anything called 'cold'.  We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat but we can't go any further after that.  There is no such thing as cold.  'Cold' is a word we use to describe the absence of heat.  We cannot measure cold.  Heat is energy.  Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

*There was pin-drop silence in the lecture hall*

Student : What about darkness, professor?  Is there such a thing as darkness?

Professor : Yes.  What is night if there isn't darkness?

Student : You're wrong again, sir.  Darkness is the absence of something.  You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light.  But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it?  In reality darkness isn't.  If it is, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?

Professor : So what is the point you are making, young man?

Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Professor : Flawed?  Can you explain how?

Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality.  You argue there is life and there is deathm a good GOD and bad GOD.  You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure.  Sir, Science can't even explain a thought.  It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen much less fully understood either one.  To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.

Death is not the opposite of life : Just the absence of it.  Now tell me, professor, Do you tech your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Professor : If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course I do.

Student : Have you observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

*The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going*

Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir?  Are you not scientist but a preacher?

*The class was in uproar*

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?

*The class broke out into laughter*

Student : Is there anyone here who have ever heard the professor's brain, felt it, touched it or smelt it?  No one appears to have done so.  So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir.  With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust lectures, sir?

*The room was silent.  The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable*

Professor : I guess you have to take them on faith, son.

Student : That is it sir....Exactly!  the link between man & GOD is FAITH.  That is all that keeps things alive and moving.


There you go.  Even a professor can be ignorant.  God can't be measured.  HE is THE FIRST and HE is THE LAST and ENDLESS.  HE is THE ONE.  HE is THE ALMIGHTY.  Hopefully you'll spread this message.  And may His blessings be with you.


See you guys on the flip side!!
