Does God Know Us ?

"We verily created man and We know what his soul whispereth to him, and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein." {Holy Qur'an 50:16}

Dear brothers and sisters, 

I hear many Christians tell me that; 

'I cannot follow the commandments like He wills, you cannot follow the commandments like He wills. If we could, the Ten Commandments would still be the covenant by which our salvation was based.' - from an e-mail sent to me by a Christian friend. 

The Question I have is: Why do you Christians insult God like this? 

This statement is in otherwords saying that God does not know Us. 

A physical doctor knows our insides and our limits, 

A pyscologist knows our mentality and our limits, 

What do you think God knows?? 

God Created Us and Is With Us, 

God knows what We're going to do before we do it. 

How in the World can someone claim that God gave us something to do that was beyond our capabilities?? 

That is calling God unknowing or incapable to measure 
correctly, or unforseeing. 

The modern Christians claim that the Laws are imposible, that
the commandments of God are too difficult

This goes directly against what God in the Bible says
about the Commandments.

In the Bible (Deuteronomy 30:11-18 [English-NIV]), we read;

"Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you
or beyond your reach.

It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, "Who will ascend
into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?

Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, "Who will
cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?"

No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your
heart so you may obey it.

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and

For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his
ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will
live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you
in the land you are entering to possess.

But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you
are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them,

I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed.
You will not live long.."

God knows Our limits and did not foolishly give us too much! 

It is the Devil who causes some to be lazy and think that abstaining 
from certain things is too much and beyond our human capabilities. 

"O you whose hearts have been touched with the divine hand : When you intend to stand before God for performing your act of worship, then ablution becomes a duty. Wash your faces, your hands and the forearms up to the elbows, and with your wet hands wipe your heads, then wash your feet to the ankles....- God does not intend to put you in difficulty but only to make you sound headed men of proper discipline and excellent mind, and to set you upon a course of purity of thought and action, for the actions of men are best interpreters of their thoughts, and He means to make all grace abound in you that you may hopefully actuate yourselves with the feeling of gratitude and gratefulness and lift Him your inward sight." Qur'an 5:6

God knows human Capabilities, We do not. God gave humans commandments, it is not up to humans to say God gave too much. 

Humans should be thankFul that God even guides with righteous healthy laws: 

For example Fasting: 

"O you who believe! fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard (against evil)." 

(Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (Should be made up) from days later. For those who can do it (With hardship), is a ransom, the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free will,- it is better for him. And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew.  

"Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful." Qur'an 2: 183-5 

God knows our Limmits and does not _over do it_ as Christians _Complain_. 

God does not want us to suffer and asks us to do things that helps humanity as a whole. 

One of the many Benefits of fasting is Piety. 

Personally, when I fast, my sympathy for the poor is heightened. 

As a result, when ever (or most of the time) when I see a homeless person in the street in need of money, I give (with the statement "don't buy beer with this") 

I give because through the Fasting I empathise with this person and the suffering this man or woman is feeling. 

If everyone felt this suffering and could Relate to the Starving World Wide, then this would help humanity as a whole. 

I am not sure if this is right but I heard that someone starves to death every 3 seconds. 

All those Billionaires, do they have piety, do they think God's commandments are too much to follow?
