To Err Is Human, To Forgive Is Divine

Today, according to my usual routine I was going through the news feeds of my facebook when I found some really ......... pictures! I dont know what I should call it..maybe stupidity of people? or maybe people who have complex minds or puzzled concepts about Islam..Here you go!

Well I am not a very good Muslim. But is it not a useless talk whether to call God Allah or Allah Tala or Allah Mian? I think it all depends upon your 'Niyyat' which means what really is in your heart for your God.. If you call him 'Allah Tala' and you really think that you are giving Him a lot of respect by using this word for him, but still you are not doing what He has ordered you to do, then whats the use of giving Him respect through this name? Why are people going into so much complications as in looking for literal dictionary meaning for Mian!! There are a variety of languages in this world.. Everyone uses name for God according to their tongue..So this does not mean everyone is going to go to hell or is displeasing God because they called their God through some other name..I am not saying to call Allah as some of your relative but I really think 'Mian' and 'Tala' are both perfectly fine as long as you have His respect in your heart.
Have a look at the second picture (also from facebook).

Yes its true that 'Namaz' is the pillar of Islam and all those who donot fulfill this obligation will be thrown into Hell, no matter how good they are at other religious obligations. But I think its never the condition that God does not want you to stand infront of Him because you are a bad person. Infact He calls each and every person again and again. If some child misbehaves and does not listen to his mother, the mother would never want that child to get out of her sight. She would still wish that her child gets okay with his behaviour and will always accept the child's apology happily. God is equal to 70 mothers. How come He does not want His astray people to come back to Him? I am sure if someone performs some sin and on other day goes and stands on his 'musalla' or 'jaey namaz' for prayers, God would love him for this act but only at one condition that the person is really sorry and feels guilty for what he has done. How could He punish a person by taking the 'wish of prayer' out of that person's heart when He Himself emphasizes so much on prayers?

The above picture is also from facebook. So we see the good names of Allah i.e 'Rahmaan and Raheem' (the forgiving one). If God is so forgiving why do people not understand that these small matters as in by what name you call Him, donot matter. What really matters is what is present in your heart and not on your tongue. If you donot have good feelings about Him in your heart and you call Him with great respect from your tongue then you are a 'Munafiq' (hypocrite). Iam sure God hates the munafiq people.
Its a very wide discussion. I know many people would disagree with it and might have other thoughts. But this is what I think. To keep everything in your life including your religion simple. Islam is a simple religion. People just love to make it complicated. Many problems the Muslims are facing today is due to these complications made by themselves.
