Mirza Bashir Ahmad, an able son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad- the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi has written a good note on the above topic, I want that the viewers enjoy it reading:

 

Mirza Bashir Ahmad said:

“The Holy Quran asks us to reflect over the universe time and again. It tells us to ponder over the heavens and the earth and all the other creations and then ask ourselves if this grand and well ordered universe could have come into being by accident. On the contrary, the whole universe cries out that there must be a Creator Who created it. In this manner, God keeps inviting us to ponder over the question of the existence of God and to find the Creator through His creation.

This way of reasoning shows that human reason alone cannot be sufficient without Heavenly help. But it is interesting to note, that the verse quoted above* tells us that the knowledge of God is beyond the reach of man. Therefore, God Himself makes arrangements to help man attain knowledge of God and insight into him.

Actually, there is no conflict between the two statements. Man can reach God with the help of his reason, but mere reason cannot attain the perfect knowledge and comprehension of God. For this it is essential that God Himself helps man with His signs and grants him true understanding.”

And He is the Incomprehensible, the All-Aware.’
