How to Test that God Listens to Prayers

Prayers get no answer. You find what you struggle for. You make mistakes and you don’t get what you desire. God has created a system and given you will power to use it to find what you desire in this world. There is absolutely no use of prayers. How and why the God is going to listen to you? Why exactly? He has given you mind to think, He has given you hands and feet to do stuff and to walk where ever you want. He is free now. Its all up to you. Do something, have something. No strings attached. You struggle for it and you find it. That’s it. Muslims are really really idiots, thinking about they will pray and the God will listen to them and give them what you want. I mean try this. Sit and pray to God that ‘I want Pizza, Please send me a Pizza from Pizza Hut some how, while I am sitting and praying’. Will you get that pizza? Absolutely not. God is a programmer, who is done with this system programming which is running and regulating all by itself and there is a balance in this universe that He has created and you can’t mess with this balanced system. Everything you get, is a result by the struggle you put into it. Infact, if I want something and I haven’t put a lot of effort for it and i am not sure that whether i will get what i want or not, then i will bow to God and ask that thing from him like, ‘O, God! I am a looser and I know i am never going to get what i want, but you are the creator, please help me get that thing for me.’ The result: You will never get that thing. Try asking God that stop terrorism from earth. Try asking Him that help poor and eliminate poverty. Try asking Him that eliminate severe conditions or summer and winter from world. Try asking Him that make everybody rich. Your prayers will go in vain. There will be no answer. Muslims and Christians are stupid who don’t try but they keep asking God to help them what they want. Don’t pray, because they never will get answer. Really!

This has been my own experience. And a few days back, I had such thoughts in my mind. Be good and pray which will help you after your death. There is a life after death. In that life your good deeds and your prayers will get benefit and you will be rewarded. Not in this world. In this world, do what you want for something you want, and do it right and you will get it. Simple! By the way, back some days I saw a movie ‘Invention of Lying‘ which was really a cool movie. It was about a comedy set in a world where no one has ever lied, until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain and He makes up a story about a person in the sky who give you a big mansion and whatever you want after your death. You should watch that movie.

Anyways, back to the topic.

Does God listen to prayers?

Allah (God) does listen to prayers.

Here is a story of a young man to prove it.

A young man had been to Wednesday Night Class of Quranic Studies.
The Mualim (scholar) had shared about listening to Allah and obeying Allah through intuition.
The young man couldn’t help but wonder,
Does Allah still speak to people through intuition?’
After the lessons, he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how Allah had led them in different ways and that at the end you’ll know it was Allah Who has directed you.
It was about 10 o’clock when the young man started driving home. Sitting in his car, he just began to pray,
‘Allah! If you still speak to people, speak to me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey.’
As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought to stop and buy a gallon of milk.
He shook his head and said out loud, ‘Allah is that you?’ He didn’t get a reply and started on toward home.
But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk came into his head.
‘Okay, Allah, in case that is you, I will buy the milk.’ It didn’t seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He stopped and purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home.
As he passed Seventh Street , he again felt the urge, ‘Turn Down that street.’
This is crazy he thought, and drove on past the intersection.
Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street ..
At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.
Half jokingly, he said out loud, ‘Okay, Allah, I will.’
He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop. He pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in a semi-commercial area of town. It wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst of neighborhoods either. The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the people were already in bed.
Again, he sensed something, ‘Go and give the milk to the people in the house across the street.’ The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like the people were either gone or they were already asleep. He started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat..
‘Allah, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid.’ Again, he felt like he should go and give the milk.
Finally, he opened the door, ‘Okay Allah, if this is you, I will go to the door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something, but if they don’t answer right away, I am out of here.’
He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise inside. A man’s voice yelled out, ‘Who is it? What do you want?’ Then the door opened before the young man could get away.
The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn’t seem too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep.
‘What is it?’
The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, ‘Here, I brought this to you.’
The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway.
Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen. The man was following her holding a baby.. The baby was crying. The man had tears streaming down his face.
The man began speaking and half crying, ‘We were just praying. We had some big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn’t have any milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking Allah to show me how to get some milk.’
His wife in the kitchen yelled out, ‘I ask him to send an Angel with some.
Are you an Angel?’
The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put in the man’s hand. He turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were streaming down his face.
He knew that Allah still answers prayers.

I think God answers prayers and you should pray everyday, everytime and ask God stuff in your heart silently and you will get directions about what you want to do. He will help you, if its a good deed you want to do or ask for.

Okay! Here is the survey. Answer it and share with me.
