Faithful urged to commit themselves to God

MUSLIM brothers and sisters in Labasa were urged to open their eyes and search for the power of God in their surroundings and within themselves.

Speaking at the Prophet Mohammed celebrations at the Vanua Levu Muslim League headquarters, United Kingdom coven representative, Maulana Zain-Ul-Aqtab Siddiqi said human beings failed to see the power of God in their everyday life and surroundings.

He said that humans had become a slave to science and failed to see the science around and within us.

"Take for instance the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the United States of America who are busy trying to find signs of life in outer space when we are life itself," Mr Siddiqi said.

"We fail to see the greatness of God in us as the technologies that we seek have already been provided in us by the prophets.

"We talk about infrared technology and x-rays when the bible declares that the eyes of Jesus were so immaculate that he could see through a person," he said.

Mr Siddiqi said that humans had the technology they needed but that they had forgotten how to use them.

"God is present in every living thing around us and all we have to do is open our consciousness and realise these things," said Mr Siddiqi.

"Refrain from worshipping with blind eyes, instead open the eyes of your soul to explore the greatness of God and His power in all living things around you.

"Be harmonious and sincere in your pursuit of God," he said
