Questions About Existence Of God

I believe in God, al-hamdulillah. I believe that He is one and our creator and supreme of all. After truly believing this, can we think or research about following:

1) We all are created by God but How God himself did come into existence?
2) What is your research in that, if you did any?
Secondly is it true that:
1) Prophet Mohammed (sws) prohibited to think or discuss about such matters mentioned above?
2) Is there any authentic hadith for that?
I heard Mr Ghamdi once that it does not mean what usually people perceived. If this is so then please tell me, so I can repent.

Why Doesn’t God Help The Innocent Victims?

I have a question that you see many innocent people dying in the world either by natural disasters or by attacks from police or some criminals. The question is that why do innocent people die from such attacks? Why does not Allah protect the innocent people who have nothing to do with crime or corruption?

Answer:

The Almighty Allah has put man through test in this worldly life. Seen from our angle it is sheer injustice to deprive a man of his mother, son or daughter. But God sees the entire creation from a more wise and merciful angle. He does not see things like us. He has planned a test for us all. He implements His scheme according to His profound wisdom. It needs to be appreciated that those killed…

Istikhara

I have a question about istikhara. I have been told that in istikhara we get the answer in a dream. Is that correct? If it were correct then nobody in the world would take loss in their business or personal maters. Please guide me. I want to start business of garments. I have enough knowledge of the business but I made someone perform istikhara for me and he said I must not start the business. How do you suggest I should proceed?

Answer:

Istikhara, in fact is seeking from God what is good for us. It basically giving expression to the general Muslim belief of depending on God and seeking His help in every matter. We believe that God knows what is better for us while we do not. Therefore, when we embark upon an important task in our life we seek God’s help. We ask Him to make the task easy for us if it is better…
