interview with god


came across this so thought id share with everyone as it says everything for whatever you belive. enjoy!!!


I dreamed I had an interview with God.
"So you would like to interview me?" God said.
"If you have the time," I said.
God smiled.
"My time is eternity," he said,
"What questions do you have in mind for me?"
I said, "What surprises you most about humankind,?"
God answered,
"That they get bored with childhood,
and they rush to grow up,
and then long to be children again,

That they lose their health to make money,
and then lose their money,
to restore their health,

That by thinking anxiously about the future,
they forget the present,
such that they live in neither the present
nor the future.

That they live as though they will never die,
and die as though they never lived."

God's hand took mine,
and we were silent for a while.

And then I asked,
"As a parent, what are some of lifes lessons
you want your children to learn?"

"To learn they cannot make anyone love them.
All they can do is let themselves be loved."

"To learn that it is not good
to compare themselves to others."

"To learn to forgive,
by practising forgiveness."

"To learn that it only takes
a few seconds to open profound wounds
in those they love,
and it can take many years to heal them."

"To learn that a rich person
is not one who has the most,
But is one who needs the least."

"To learn that there are people
who love them dearly,
but simply do not yet know how to express or
show their feelings."

"To learn that two people can look at the same
thing, and see it differently."

"That it is not enough to forgive one another,
but they must also forgive themselves."

"Thank you for your time" I said humbly, "is there anything else you'd like your children to know?"
God smiled and said....
"Just know that I am here...."
"Always."

I'm sorry Sahira Baji, I too find this offensive---very offensive! Unlike Brothers Marwan and Umar, I'll give you the reasons why. First of all, I don't think that humankind can ever surprise God. He is the Knower of all things, He created us, He knows us better than we know ourselves, so how can we surprise Him?
Secondly, I think this work was written by a Christian, and the word "God" refers to Jesus---because a Muslim would've never called God a parent!

Other than these two things, I too found it thought-provoking like Brother Waseem.
Thanks, Jazaakumullah.
Wassalaamu 'Alaikum.

Alright alright, I apologise. But I wish you had stated that earlier. If it's written by a Christian, then I guess it's a nice piece of work from a Christian's point of view.

No Sahira Baji, that's not just your view, it's mine too! I think it's most people's view.
