When I was in 12 grade my English Teacher asked us this question ...i was stumped ....looking at all the hot debates going on now....thought i would ask this ...
Youre hanging from a cliff with just a small branch to hold on to .There is no one you can call for help that you know of.
You cry out to God .
"Oh God Help me ..."
Suddenly you hear a voice 'Let go .I will help you'
What would you do???
Do you believe in God ..to let go???

Trust in Allah but tie your camel.
Don't be silly. Somersaults seem like a better idea.

I'd sure want to make sure it wasn't Osama hiding behind a tree, chuckling into his hand . . . .

Heres what i would do .
I would untie the rope from my waist ..make a lasso ...flip it over the cliff onto a wedge which i was wise enough to have dug into the ground and rapple over to the top or bottom of the cliff ...whichever is closer.

Yeah, well, I'm slow.

Hmf. Speak my last "I love you's" on the way down? I render unto God what is God's, but I also render unto gravity what is gravity's.

Unless you have tenants living somewhere up in your head, I doubt you will ever hear something like that.

You forgot to attach the punchline of the joke!
The guy hanging from the branch calls out - "CAN ANYONE HEAR ME? IS ANYONE THERE? ANYONE! PLEASE HELP ME!!!"
To which the voice of God responds, "Here I am. Let go, I will catch you."
The guy hanging from the branch calls out again, "Anyone ELSE?"

Or it could be a joke on you. Read on.
Here's a joke for all those who thinks that things can
never get worse...
An explorer in the deepest Amazon suddenly finds himself
surrounded by a blood thirsty group of cannibals. Upon
surveying the situation, he says quietly to himself, "Oh
God, I'm doomed." There is a ray of light from the sky
above and a voice booms out, "No my son, you are NOT
doomed. Pick up that stone at your feet and bash in the
head of the chief standing in front of you."

So the explorer picks up the stone and attacks the chief,
feverishly bashing at his head with all his strength. He
stands above the lifeless body, breathing heavily and
surrounded by 100 cannibals with a look of shock on their
faces.
The voice booms out again, "Okay...NOW you're doomed."

Well, I would ask who it was that told me to let go....duh. The voice makes no identification and could be the person you were hiking with just over the ledge out of sight. The voice seems to be coming from everywhere because sound bounces.

My answer to Pranav's question:
No I will not be able let go. God will actually have to appear in person to take the delivery.
