The Quran is definite and clear on the question of knowledge. It claims with an absoluteness that knowledge of the manifest as well as of the hidden belongs to God, that nothing occurs in the world which is not known to Him. To quote, by Him who knows the unseen from whom is not hidden the least little atom in the heavens or on the earth:[1] Of man it says that most of them know not: and those few who know, They know an outward part of the present life,...[2] It adds, they follow only surmise, merely conjecturing.[3] In other words, the commoners have opinion only (to use a platonic term), and not knowledge in the proper sense; and whatever knowledge they possess is of the external aspect of the world (appearances) only and not of the reality itself. So far Plato and Kant share the approach that characterizes the Quran in the regard. However, unlike Kant, the Quran does not preclude the possibility of knowledge to man.

IT is a well-known saying of the Prophet that "He who knows himself, knows God"; that is, by contemplation of his own being and attributes man arrives at some knowledge of God. But since many who contemplate themselves do not find God, it follows that there must be some special way of doing so. As a matter of fact, there are two methods of arriving at this knowledge, but one is so abstruse that it is not adapted to ordinary intelligences, and therefore is better left unexplained. The other method is as follows: When a man considers himself he knows that there was a time when he was non-existent, as it is written in the Koran: "Does it not occur to man that there was a time when he was nothing?" Further, he know that he was made out of a drop of water in which there was neither intellect, nor hearing, sight, head, hands, feet, etc. From this it is obvious that, whatever degree of perfection he may have arrived at, he did not make himself, nor can he now make a single hair.

God is immortal. God is universal. God is the supreme power. God is the creator.
Just like smell and wind we can feel God but we cant see or touch him. You can see the flower but you cant see smell. You can see the fire, but you cant see heat. But you can feel these things. God is everywhere present. You feel him.
