A scathing admonition from Ahmed Deedat to Muslims living in the West.
'There's something wrong with you people, you'd better wake up'.
Edit: As Muslims we seek nearness to God not union. Union with the Creator is impossible because the Creator is not part of His Creation.
I have posted some videos that you are welcome to check out. While I explain this thread I am grateful for your effort to explore Islam and ask the Creator to guide you to His straight path. Ameen(Only, brothers and sisters in Islam are welcome to post resources in this thread.)
I’m sorry I didn’t realize ibn arabi was considered a controversial thinker. I found it inspiring so thought I’d share. Not trying to upset anyone. Thanks for sharingA basic tenet of Islam is that anyone who says that any creation is part of God is disbeliever.
The Creator is not part of His creation. Would a car maker be a part of his car?....... And to the Creator are the highest analogies.
When people espouse theories about God as being a part of his creation they open the door to worshipping the Creation which is the worst sin in Islam. They will say that they are worshipping God through an idol or a righteous person or anything created that they think will get them to God.
As Muslims we say that the Creator is separate from His Creation. Thankfully we dedicate and devote our lives to him. We try to be God-centric without trying to be part of God.
We pray that our deeds and intentions are acceptable to him. God willing.
Hope that clarifies our stance and I will also post videos about the Islamic creed.

Some Quranic verses :
“ [The Mushrikeen (those that associate partners to God say] ‘We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allaah’” [al-Zumar 39:3]
“Have they taken (others) as intercessors besides Allaah? Say: “Even if they have power over nothing whatever and have no intelligence?” [al-Zumar 39:43]
They acknowledged that Allaah is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and the Creator of the idols, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And verily, if you ask them: ‘Who created the heavens and the earth?’ Surely, they will say: ‘Allaah (has created them)’” [al-Zumar 39:38] (Ibid., 21-23)
