Does God Exist?

March 4, 2007 at 2:49 pm (Me@myself)

 

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.

As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.

They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: “I don’t believe that God exists.”

Why do you say that?“asked the customer.

“Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist. 

Tell me, if God exists,would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can’t imagine loving a God who would allow all of these things.”

The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument.

The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and un-kept.

The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: “You know what? Barbers do not exist.”

How can you say that?“asked the surprised barber. “I am here, and I am a barber.And I just worked on you!”

“No!” the customer exclaimed. “Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.”

“Ah, but barbers DO exist! What happens is, people do not come to me.”

Exactly !”- affirmed the customer. “That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! What happens, is, people don’t go to Him and do not look for Him. That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.”

    A beautiful stroy it is, indeed. But ya know the existence of GoD can be ‘proved’ by oh so many ways too for our non-muslim brothers. Because we alraedy believe in this existence, they don’t, we need to show them the right path, guide them ya know.
    Thank God for making us believe.

    Stay beautiful.

    i have heard another story to prove existance of Allah. Once there was a non muslim & he had a dialogue with a muslim about existance of Allah but non muslim was not ready to believe anything. suddenly the muslim guy slapped him & asked him did it hurt you? non muslim said yes it really hurt me but why are u asking this. Then muslim guy asked him again did u see the pain? non muslim replied, No.
    Then muslim guys explained him that he was hurt but couldnt see the pain & it means you can not see pain but it exists. In same way Allah exists but you cannot see him.
    Jazakallah khair 😀

    Apart from these two stories (essGee’s & Jugnoo’s) I had read a few others some years back under a title “Does God exist”. I think the more philosophical one I had posted on my blog. I will serch for that and let you know.
