Desire to seek god

"The true believer is one, who can see beyond the visible to comprehend the invisible,? says Maulana Wahiduddin Khan.

When the Russian astronaut, Andriyan Nikolayev returned to Earth after a journey in space, he addressed a press conference in Moscow and said: When I arrived back on Earth, I wanted to kiss the ground.

For human beings, there is nothing like the Earth—filled as it is with unlimited favourable conditions—anywhere else in the entire known universe. When this Russian astronaut went away from the Earth and far into space, he found that there was nothing in outer space that was suitable for human life to exist. In the vastness of space, there was nothing that could provide peace and comfort for mankind.

The difference between a believer and one who does not believe is that the latter is besotted by creation, while a believer rises above creation and discovers his Creator.

The true believer is one, who can see beyond the visible to comprehend the invisible; who realises that whatever he sees is all bestowed by Someone Else; that everything in this world has been created by a Superior Being. Observing the creation, he acknowledges the Creator, and takes the Creator as his sole concern. He surrenders all his lofty emotions to God.

The true believer sees the beauty of the Creator in the beauty of creation and surrenders himself to their Maker.

The sort of emotions which the Russian astronaut experienced on his return to earth are also felt in a much more intense form by the one who discovers God. A true believer is one who, when he sees the sun, finds in its light the light of God. In the vast expanses of the heavens, he appreciates the infinite power of God. In the scent of a flower he finds the fragrance of God. In the flow of water he sees God’s bounty.

The true believer sees the beauty of the Creator in the beauty of creation and surrenders himself to their Maker. The one who does not realise this prostrates before created things, while the one who realises the truth prostrates before the Creator of all things.
