A Discussion With An Atheist

I remembered in a discussion with an atheist, he said that he would only believe in God if he could see God for himself, just about the same in this verse, [2:210], I cannot recall whether I had put it in my blog or not. And I cannot recall what his response was when I presented this verse to him when he said of it more or less likely the same. I'll be busy in a few days ahead. Hope I'll get a response soon.

O you who believe, enter Islam completely, and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Surely, he is an open enemy for you;

and if you slip, even after clear signs have come to you, then you must know that Allah is Mighty, Wise.

They are looking for nothing (to accept the truth) but that Allah (Himself) comes upon them in canopies of cloud with angels, and the matter is closed. To Allah shall all matters be returned.

Ask the Children of Isrā’īl (Israel) how many a clear sign We have given to them; and whoever changes the blessing of Allah after it has come to him, then Allah is severe in punishment.

Adorned is the present life for those who disbelieve, and they laugh at those who believe, while those who fear Allah shall be above them on the Day of Resurrection. Allah gives provision to whom He wills without measure.

All men used to be a single ’Ummah (i.e. on a single faith). Then (after they differed in matters of faith), Allah sent prophets carrying good news and warning, and sent down with them the Book with Truth to judge between people in matters of their dispute. But it was no other than those to whom it (the Book) was given who, led by envy against each other, disputed it after the clear signs had come to them. Then Allah, by His will, guided those who believed to the truth over which they disputed; and Allah guides whom He wills to the straight path.

Do you think that you will enter Paradise while you have not yet been visited by (difficult) circumstances like those that were faced by the people who passed away before you? They were afflicted by hardship and suffering, and were so shaken down that the prophet, and those who believed with him, started saying: “When (will come) the help of Allah?” (Then, they were comforted by the Prophet who said to them) ‘Behold, the help of Allah is near.’
