Know Your God by Shahzado Shaikh

Book Description:

“Know Your God” by Shahzado Shaikh is an enlightening exploration of the relationship between science, religion, and the concept of God. With an intellectual approach and in-depth research, the book delves into various aspects of theistic worldview, superstition, ignorance, and the development of human intellect.

Through the examination of different belief systems, including deism, pantheism, and mysticism, Shaikh explores the complexities of divinity and spirituality, urging readers to guard against deification and divination. He discusses the limitations of science, the challenges faced in integrating science and theology, and the necessity for dialogue between the two disciplines.

The book also delves into cosmic evolution, genomics, chance, design, and purpose, offering thought-provoking insights into the intricacies of creation and the interconnectedness of scientific concepts. Shaikh examines the concept of God in Judeo-Christianity and addresses the challenges faced by religion and democracy in contemporary society.

With meticulous analysis, “Know Your God” presents arguments for the existence of God and explores the continuity of the message of monotheism throughout history. The book sheds light on the concept of time, the attributes of God, the unity of worship, and the significance of names such as Huwa, Ar-Rahmaan, Ar-Rahiim, As-Samad, and Al-Maalik.

Throughout the chapters, the author emphasizes the need for a comprehensive understanding of God, encompassing both intellectual reasoning and spiritual enlightenment. With its comprehensive exploration of the intersection between science, theology, and belief, “Know Your God” offers readers a deeper understanding of the divine and invites them to contemplate the nature of God in light of scientific inquiry and religious wisdom.
