Oh Man:

You did not exist, then you were, and you knew that you did not create yourself, nor did anyone similar to you created you.

If I have not created myself with certainty, and i was not created by someone with certainty, then the third possibility remains as the only option, namely that he who created us, is not like us.

If the One who created us was simialr to us and was characterized by our qualities, we would also be able to create those who are like us.

The language might not able to express the meaning precisely, and even the human mind is incapable of knowing the nature of the great Creator – and between language and reason in their places we can come out with an absolute truth, namely that He who created us and created the universe and its laws that discovered by modern science, H is not as we are.

If we are unable to avert the harm for ourselves and we cannot save ourselves and our loved ones from doom, then surely we cannot find ourselves because the matter is indeed beyond our control.

We don’t know what’s going on inside us, and even human anatomy specialists are amazed at the amazing work and creativity that goes into the human body.

The Creator said in Sura At-Tur 35-36:

Is it that they are created by none, or are they themselves the creators?

If we had created ourselves, we would have made it complete and lacks nothing, strong and not in need of the universe’s assests. We could then sustain ourselves and our loved ones and eliminate death, because preservation is easier than creation.

The point here is that Man should look at himself first before he becomes conceited away from the truth. Despite how technology developed around us, we still aren’t able to develop ourselves to mortal creatures or even be independent creatures who don’t need food, drink, air or even not going to the restroom.

Man tries hard searching the whole universe for happiness and continuance in life, although he knows for sure that he cannot travel to the moon without special suits and in special spacecrafts in fear of death.

Say, “Be you stones or iron. Or [any] creation of that which is great within your breasts.” And they will say, “Who will restore us?” Say, “He who brought you forth the first time.” Then they will nod their heads toward you and say, “When is that?” Say, “Perhaps it will be soon”. (Qur’an 17:50-51).

When a father gets a call from the emergency room of a certain hospital telling him that his only son had a terrible accident and his life is in danger. They ask the father to donate part of his body to help his son’s life.

The father will go quickly, without hesitation and without doubting, the doctor’s experience, not even at the efficiency of the equipment, competence of the nurses, nor at the accuracy of the construction of the hospital building.

A father does not go to study organic biology until he has donated part of his body to his son.

If a person is concerned with knowing the source of his existence and the place to which he will return after death with this level of danger, he himself will be saved.

What is the value of this life compared to infinity?

In fact, the atheist doesn’t know who his Creator is. He doesn’t know His mercy. He doesn’t know that in any case, it must be noted that God did not make this world permanent. This world is temporary and everything in this life is limited by time, when its time finishes, it dies or it ends.

Neither are the good things of this world everlasting, nor are the bad things eternal. We are here for a short time and we are being tested. Those who pass this test will find an eternal world that is perfect and permanent, and those who fail this test shall see there are consequences for their sins and corruption.

According to mathematics, any number compared to infinity is zero. So, this life is zero, we live in the zero, because if I lived 100 or 90 or 200 years, eventually, I will leave this life. So actually, compared to the eternal life with the Creator, we are actually here in the zero.

We have to understand the wisdom behind the natural disasters and suffering, that the natural disasters and suffering bring out the best in some people in terms of the display of elevated human values and charity. Suffering of the righteous comes with promises of a great reward and blessings from God.

Let us say you knew God and believed in his existence; you realized that he is more merciful than your parents, and you acknowledged the fact that God Almighty has a paradise that displays the heavens and the earth. Do you prefer losing faith in Him, His mercy, and His everlasting paradise over this worldly life? Would you prefer zero over infinity?

It is not logical to judge a play without continuing it to the end, or to reject a book because you did not like the first page.

We either live longer than others and lose what we have (children, money, and parents) or we die before them and leave everything behind.

Although an atheist knows for sure that he may suddenly die anywhere and anytime, when some ask him:

  • Where do you come from?
  • Where are you going?
  • Why are you here?

He still answers:

  • We came from nothing and we are nothing and we will become nothing.
  • I do not know.
  • I’m not interested.
  • Maybe I’ll know later.
  • I don’t care.

Why don’t we apply the simplest law of the universe and the simplest axiom of life to realize the source of our existence: “Nothing comes from nothing”?

Existence as we see it (the universe and man) must be fully understood by who created it, therefore the Creator’s attributes must not be on the same level or lower than the attributes of creations.

Absolute Perfection is the attribute of the Absolute Generator, which contains and absorbs all existence and creates and directs its laws.

The path to knowing the Creator begins with knowing the human soul (who knows himself knows his Lord), and after having realized the greatness of the creator who created the human soul and this cosmic existence, we fully realize that the universe contents are incomplete and limited compared to the creative Creator.

From this we conclude that our qualities are different from the qualities of our Creator.

The Creator is One. The Singular, Who has no peer, no assistant, no son, no equal and none comparable to Him.

God Almighty said in the Sura Al- Shura:

[He is] Creator of the heavens and the earth. He has made for you from yourselves, mates, and among the cattle, mates; He multiplies you thereby. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing. (11)

The Creator does not come to earth in an animal form or a human form, idol or a stone. People must worship Him directly, without a priest, saint or any intermediary.

For this reason, it is one of the greatest sins to give one of the creatures the right of the Creator. So when the human put a clergyman or a saint between him and the Creator, it means that he has given the clergyman the Creator’s right.

for example:

Is cutting a tree in half equal to cutting the body of a small child in half?

Of course not.

The value of human traits is higher than the value of plant traits.

The Creator has the greatest attributes value, in addition to being unlimited attributes because the Creator Himself is unlimited.

For this reason, the punishment for those who take intermediaries in their relationship with the Creator is eternal and unlimited.

The distinguishing feature of the religion of Islam from the rest of the religions is the true concept of the Creator, which is a universal concept shared by all and with which no one contradicts.

for example:

It is enough if we visit India, for example, and say among the masses:

The Creator is One, nothing is like Him. He neither image nor child.

We find everyone saying yes, that’s true.

But they differ, fight and may slaughter each other on one fundamental point: the image and form that God comes to earth in.

For example, the Christian Indian says: God is one, but He is embodied in three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

Indian Hindus say:

The Creator is one, but he is embodied in the Holy Trinity: the god “Brahma” in the image of the Creator, the god “Vishnu” in the image of the Preserver, and the god “Siva” in the image of the Destroyer.

Some of them say: The Creator comes in the form of an animal, a human, or an idol.

An atheist or even a Buddhist will resort to the power in heavens to help him when he is in great distress. In doing so, they have implicitly acknowledged the existence of the Creator.

Atheism appeared because of the differences between religions which are represented in the means used to communicate with the Creator, directly or through the taking of mediators (saints, priests, idols, or prophets).

If all religions left calling to mediators and went directly to the Creator, humanity would be united and their hearts upright, and be guided to the truth. Just as everyone agrees in praying towards the Creator directly without a partner or mediator when calamities or adversities occur, so it was necessary to invite everyone in good and bad times to worship the Lord of the Worlds.

Say: “O people of the Scripture: Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah the same, and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allah.” Then, if they turn away, say: “Bear witness that we are Muslims. “(Al Imran: 64)

Islam is:

The faith in one God “the Creator”, Who has no child or any partner, Who does not become incarnatein any of His creature’s image or body nor in any idol. He created Jesus Christ from a single women as He created Adam from dust. Muslims have to have a direct connection with Him by worshiping Him directly without any intermediary (priests, saints, prophets or idols, etc.).

Islam considers that our existence in this world is for a supreme goal and purpose: God Almighty’s knowledge and to worship Him by having a direct connection with Him.

Therefore, the worldly life is the beginning of an eternal journey that a person resumes after death.

Any misfortunes that happen, God knows it, and have allowed it. God has absolute wisdom, and absolute wisdom is related to absolute good. There is no absolute evil in existence.

Every soul has to taste death. It is on the Day of Judgement that you shall be paid your rewards in full. So, whoever has been kept away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has really succeeded. The worldly life is nothing but an illusionary enjoyment. (Sura Al-Imran:185)
