On this page you will find a discussion of the most famous theological proofs for the existence of God. However, one must bear in mind that Islam is not about merely ‘knowing’ God. What Islam requires is ‘belief in God’. Thus, the Quran is promising Paradise for ‘those who believe in God – not those who know God- and do righteous good deeds’. Nonetheless, knowing God is the essential pre-requisite for believing in God.

If humankind is absolutely ignorant about something, they cannot acquire any knowledge about it. Hence, man cannot perceive the existence of angels, save through the teachings of religion. The fact that there are debates about the existence of God proves that it is possible for humans to understand His existence. This is because although God is not physical, He has shown Himself to us through numerous physical and intellectual signs.
