In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and may Allah exalt the mention of His Prophet, and render him and his household safe and secure from all derogatory things.
It is interesting to learn and know about our religion, Islam. There must be a reason why we are here in this world. Spare a thought to think who the Creator of this beautiful world is. Who is The Most Magnificent? Who makes you breathe, who controls your heart to keep on pumping blood to keep you alive? Thousands of questions are there in our minds, but do you spare a moment to think?
Let us discuss a little bit about the existence of the Creator. In this topic, Islam teaches us to think, to reflect and to observe the world around us. This is because, when you start investigating, you will realize how complex things are. Based on our human experience, complex things just don’t come out of nowhere. Let us think about a simple situation.
When we see a computer, with the latest technology inside it, we know that every single part inside the computer is very complex; the motherboard, soundcard, processor, graphic card, hard disk etc. You absolutely will never believe me if I told you that all these things came out together by themselves. Although you don’t see the computer engineers who invented all those parts, that doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. You know for sure that someone had to build it. You also can get the idea of the intelligence of the creator, just by checking out his creation.
The amazing thing is, all these man-made creations in this world are rather simple when you compare to something as complex as living organism. For instance, a fly. If we gather all the best engineers and doctors in this world, and ask them to invent a fly and put life into it, for sure they’ll fail. But it is just a fly!
Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. (190) Those who remember Allâh (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): “Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted are You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire. (191)[Ali’Imran :190-191]
From human experience, when we see something that works on a precise mechanism, someone had to put them together. And that someone can not be a human being, as human being is imperfect and limited; while the Creator of all things is perfect and infinite. Therefore, the Creator of all things can’t be an idol, or a cow, or even a human being. And thus, we know that the only Creator of our beautiful world is Allah S.W.T., the Most Magnificent, the Most Powerful.
Hopefully, this article can help someone who is in dilemma in understanding the existence of the Creator. May Allah enlighten us and guide us to the right path. Fi Amanullah.
