Believe that Allah is the Creator of This World

Allah, (SWA) said in the Qur’an: [أَفِي اللَّـهِ شَكٌّ فَاطِرِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ ] "Is there a doubt about Allah, The Creator of the heavens and the earth?  (14:10)

The first obligation on the mukallaf person is to know about Allah, (SWA). Allah is the Creator of all the existent things and is the One Who manages all the creation. If, with our sound mind, we carefully think about all the creations and ponder about their existence, we must know that they have a Creator Who created them. 


The mental proof that Allah exists :


With the sound mind, we know irrefutably that every writing has to have a writer, the act of hitting has to have a hitter, and that a building has to have a builder. Therefore, it follows that this universe with all the creations in it has to have a creator Who is Alive, attributed with Will, Knowledge, and Power, and this is Allah. He is clear of all imperfections. He is the One Who does not resemble any of His creations, and nothing resembles Him. The sound mind does not accept the existence of an action without someone who carried it out. 

It is not conceivable for nature to be the Creator, because nature has no will. So, how would nature create? It is also not permissible for something to create itself. Finally, something cannot create something that resembles it.  

For example, the child is born small; he does not talk or walk. Then he develops. He starts gradually and slowly to talk and walk. Then he matures and becomes a young man, then middle-aged, then old, after which he dies. Who changed him and transformed him from one state to another? Allah is the One Who created and changed him, and willed for him to die.

 


Allah is the Creatior of Man, Haven & Earth :

“Man We did create from a quintessence (of clay); Then We placed him as (a drop of) sperm in a place of rest, firmly fixed;  Then We made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood; then of that clot We made a (foetus) lump; then we made out of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh; then we developed out of it another creature. So blessed be Allah, the best to create!  After that, at length ye will die Again, on the Day of Judgment, will ye be raised up.  And We have made, above you, seven tracts; and We are never unmindful of (our) Creation. (23:12-17)



Allah tells us how He initially created man from an extract of Tin. This was Adam, peace be upon him, whom Allah created from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. Ibn Jarir said, "Adam was called Tin because he was created from it.'' Qatadah said, "Adam was created from Tin.'' This is the more apparent meaning and is closer to the context, for Adam, upon him be peace, was created from a sticky Tin, which is a sounding clay of altered black smooth mud, and that is created from dust, as Allah says: “And among His signs is this that He created you (Adam) from dust, and then -- behold you are human beings scattered!”(30:20)   Imam Ahmad recorded from Abu Musa that the Prophet said: “Allah created Adam from a handful which He picked up from throughout the earth, so the sons of Adam came forth accordingly, red and white and black and in between, evil and good and in between.” Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi recorded something similar. At-Tirmidhi said, "It is Sahih Hasan. ''

 Al-`Awfi reported that Ibn `Abbas said, "We change it from one stage to another until it emerges as an infant, then it grows up through the stages of being a child, adolescent, youth, mature man, old man and senile man.'' Imam Ahmad recorded in his Musnad that `Abdullah -- Ibn Mas`ud -- said, "The Messenger of Allah , the Truthful One, told us: “The creation of anyone of you is gathered for forty days in his mother's stomach as a Nutfah, then he becomes a clot for a similar period of time, then he becomes a little lump of flesh for a similar length of time. Then the angel is sent to him and he breathes the soul into it, and four things are decreed: his provision, his life-span, his deeds, and whether he will be wretched or blessed. By the One besides Whom there is no other god, one of you may do the deeds of the people of Paradise until there is no more than a forearm's length between him and it, then the decree will overtake him and he will do the deeds of the people of Hell and thus enter Hell. And a man may do the deeds of the people of Hell until there is no more than a forearm's length between him and it, then the decree will overtake him and he will do finally the deeds of the people of Paradise and thus enter Paradise.” This was recorded by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

After mentioning the creation of man, Allah then mentions the creation of the seven heavens in the verse number 17 in the Surah number23. Allah often mentions the creation of the heavens and earth alongside the creation of man, as He says: “The creation of the heavens and the earth is indeed greater than the creation of mankind” (40:57).

“See ye not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another,'”And made the moon a light in their midst, and made the sun as a (Glorious) Lamp?  "'And Allah has produced you from the earth growing (gradually), "'And in the End He will return you into the (earth), and raise you forth (again at the Resurrection)? "'And Allah has made the earth for you as a carpet (spread out), "'That ye may go about therein, in spacious roads.'" (71:15-20)

  1. A person who thinks long enough about his surroundings will realize that there is an omniscient and all powerful creator and that he was not created in vain but rather there is a reason for his creation.******think
    Only if the veils of your eyes are removed and the knot of the secret-seeing get untied then you will realize how those changes from state to state take place.******search
