Does 'God' Has Shape?

Story 1:

The picture above was taken during Ramadhan (fasting month) in 2009. I was finished my break fast that time and went out to take fresh air. Suddenly, I noticed something weird around the moon. Some bunch of clouds are performing something familiar to me. I rushed inside my house and took my camera. I got a few snaps and above is the most-recent picture I took, within a second the cloud has changed to an abstract form (natural form of clouds). Then, I showed to my family members, and they all agreed what I captured is something similar to a word in arabic calligraphy. ALLAH!

Story 2:

The article below was taken from an internet source. Here, I just want to share and invite you to think. Sometimes, God shows his existence in our everyday routines, but if we not used our mind, we can't feel it. Think, why you have been created? Is it your life is just for working and collecting wealth? or debts? Is it life is to get older and older, and finally, we died? So friends, who created this universe? Our universe is a multi billion years wide or maybe there is no border. Border less! The story tells how in a simple action, you can solve some puzzles about God existence.

The story begins...

There was a young man who went overseas to study for quite a long time. When he returned, he asked his parents to find him a religious scholar or any expert who could answer his 3 questions. Finally, his parents were able to find a Muslim scholar.

Young man: Who are you? Can you answer my questions?

Scholar: I am one of Allah (SubHana Wa Ta`ala )'s slaves and insha-Allah (God willing), I will be able to answer your questions.

Young man : Are you sure? A lot of Professors and experts were not able to answer my questions.

Scholar: I will try my best, with the help of Allah (SubHana Wa Ta`ala ).

Young Man: I have 3 questions:

1. Does God exist? If so, show me His shape.

2. What is takdir (fate)?

3. If shaitan (Devil) was created from the fire, why at the end he will be thrown to hell that also created from fire. It certainly will not hurt him at all, since Shaitan (Devil) and the hell were created from fire. Did God not think of it this far?

Suddenly, the Scholar slapped the young man's face very hard.

Young Man (feeling pain): Why do you get angry at me?

Scholar: I am not angry. The slap is my answer to your three questions.

Young Man: I really don't understand.

Scholar: How do you feel after I slapped you?
Young Man: Of course, I felt the pain.

Scholar: So do you believe that pain exists?

Young Man: Yes.

Scholar: Show me the shape of the pain!
Young Man: I cannot.
Scholar: That is my first answer. All of us feel God's existence without being able to see His shape.
Scholar: Last night, did you dream that you will be slapped by me?
Young Man: No.
Scholar: Did you ever think that you will get a slap from me, today?

Young Man: No.
Scholar: That is takdir (fate).
Scholar: My hand that I used to slap you, what is it created from?
Young Man: It is created from skin.
Scholar: How about your face, what is it created from?
Young Man: Skin.
Scholar: How do you feel after I slapped you?
Young Man: In pain.
Scholar: Even though Shaitan (Devil) and also the hell were created from the fire, if Allah wants, insha-Allah (God willing), the hell will become a very painful place for Shaitan (Devil).
