THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE
(With Reference To Surah Ikhlas)
Have you ever think that why we need a President, Prime Minister, whole parliament to run a single state?? Even though there are million of problems stays at their place. Why always behind any successful company brand or business, there are management teams, directors and so many hard workers and devoting volunteers ?? Have you ever think about it. No ?? Think then and take your thought beyond its boundaries for a while. When a single state or a single company or anything can’t run itself alone, everyone is dependent on one another and still we have a number of conflicts in our lives then how can this world, this entire universe runs all alone without any superpower ??
There are so many planets in the universe and the dazzling sun, shiny moon, mountains, tropical deserts, rivers, seas, oceans, clouds, sky, hills Do all they built automatically?? The white limped pure water which flows from the middle of mountain and the surrounding beauty of flowers and trees. The heavy freezing yet pure ice under the feet of human and a big blue sky with white clouds. The world which is under the seas. And the living beings some crawl, some walk, some fly and some swim. And angels and spirits and aliens. Do they born accidentally??
‘Human Beings’ They are the most complicated yet marvelous creation. We all have eyes, nose, lips, ears but still everyone have a different faces although everyone have a same things. They can be easily distinguish. Isn’t it strange?? And yes we human beings have changed the world by our intellectualism. We think from our mind and work with our hands. Researchers and psychologists proved that humans only uses 10% of their minds. Don’t you think what if we use 80% ??
If you look around yourself everything has been created for you. This phone or laptop that you are using right now to read this is also someone’s creation. Things don’t born themselves there is a mind behind it and hard work behind and then you are able to live better living so from the smallest hair pin to the luxurious planes, everything came into being after a long struggle and it’s the man mind which made the world so advanced that we have reached the moon now. So the question which disturbs me is from where exactly we take minds? Don’t you think there is someone behind the creation of our minds? Behind all the human beings? Behind the living beings? Or the human themselves are the creators ???
If they are then what If someone’s loved ones die in front of his eyes and one cannot do anything but to see him dying. What if humans get involved in dangerous diseases and can’t get rid of it. If they are considered as a God then why they die?? So the theory of Human beings considering God is absolutely nonsense Because humans are no doubt powerful but they are lazaros too and God cannot be incapacitate. The one who has a man’s weakness or strengths can’t be God. Who can born or die can’t be God. God is away from all these things. He is made up to NOOR (divine light) and it is HIS light which is found everywhere. HE has granted us a little pieces of HIS noor which make us to see, smell and think. So, One thing is clear that the humans who says that Human Beings are GOD like Namrot and Firon claimed are absolutely nonsense.
But now the question is who is GOD?? Where HE is?? How can we find HIM??. If you study the human’s religion world-wide you’ll observe that everyone has a different perception regarding to religions and some have such a startling concepts that your mind won’t accept. Some don’t even believe that there is any religion. They don’t even accept that there is any GOD. According to them all this entire world came into being accidentally, it’s not someone’s contrivance or knowledge. They believe that the sun, moon, mountains, deserts, rivers, flowers, trees, seas, oceans every everything appears automatically. The sky which is full of stars and every star’s light born automatically. They believe that the sunlight and moon brightness is not a GOD’S miracle.
The second kind of people believe in God but they believe in multiple Gods. Some says that sun is a God as when it rises all over the world brightens and when it sets everything becomes dark. Some made a mud statues and consider it the God, that mud statue which they created by themselves. The Gods stories are famous in Hindu religion like the story of revenge, of getting married, in fact of having baby and born from someone but we don’t think that if God’s life and problems are familiar to human lives than how these are entitled to be God??
And if the universe is under the presidency of so many Gods then what if one wants to take out the sun and other denies then how could sun rises or one wants to demolish mountain but other don’t then mountain will obey whom? So, here I totally disagree with the idea of multiple Gods with their individual religions.
Allah Subhanahu wata’ala’s messenger Hazrat Muhammad Salallahu alayhi wasalam when started spreading ‘Islam’ at that time there were so many Gods people used to worship. People of Mecca worshiped wood, fire, stone etc but Muhammad Salallahu alayhi wasalam said “There is no God but ALLAH” than the people of Mecca raised questions like Who is Allah? How HE looks like? Where is HE? And so on. Everyone raised questions and so was curious to know then Allah Subhanahu wata’ala revealed Surah Ikhlas. HE says
Say: He is Allah, the One! (1) Allah, the eternally Besought of all! (2) (112)
Here, Allah Subhanahu wata’ala said to say Muhammad that it is His (Allah’s) command not Muhammad Salallahu alayhi wasalam saying that by himself . It was the direct message from Allah. Allah made it clear that there is only one God alone and almighty. This entire universe and everything that is in it either living or non living things is His. He without any doubt is the alone almighty creator.
Then Allah Subhanahu wata’ala says He begetteth not nor was begotten (112:3)
Not only ignorant people used to say that Allah has children (Astaghfirullah) but the cantons who believe in messengers before Muhammad Salallahu alayhi wasalam. If Arabs used to say that angels are Allah’s daughter then christians says that Hazrat Isa is Allah’s son. But Allah has said in Surah Ikhlas verse 3 that He is not anyone’s father not anyone born from him. In fact He is the creator of the entire universe why would he need to make anyone His son or father. He all alone the owner. Everything belongs to him and without his will a single leave can’t move then why would he need these mortal things?
He then said And there is none comparable unto Him. (112:4) In the world everything has its qualities some good and some bad but owner of it is above all. My Lord is Immortal. Everything whether smallest or biggest belongs to Him. And if you focus a little around yourself then you’ll realize that everything is praising Him actually. Birds early in the morning whistles and tweets. We humans pray and yes The Sea most silently yet the most loudly praises Him every everyday. And the name of Allah Subhanahu wata’ala is the only name which is taken all the time everywhere in the world. Azaan (The Official call for prayer) starts from one country and goes to the whole world and repeats without any pause.
In the world everything has to die like the huge mighty building falls from earthquakes, beautiful big mountains crashes under floods. Human beings die and so animals and every living or non living thing meets to its end. But Allah is immortal. He was Before the world and will be after it.
Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala explained himself beautifully in Quran He says
هُوَ اللَّهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ ۖ هُوَ الرَّحْمَٰنُ الرَّحِيمُ
هُوَ اللَّهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيزالْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُون هُوَ اللَّهُ الْخَالِقُ الْبَارِئُ الْمُصَوِّرُ ۖ لَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزالْحَكِيمُُ ُ َُ
“HE IS ALLAH BESIDE WHOM NONE IS TO BE WORSHIPPED. THE OWNER OF EVERYTHING HIDDEN AND OPEN. HE IS THE MOST AFFECTIONATE, THE MERCIFUL. HE IS ALLAH, BESIDE WHOM NONE TO BE WORSHIPPED, THE SOVEREIGN, THE PURE, THE PERFECTION, THE BESTOWER OF FAITH, THE OVERSEER, THE EXALTED IN MIGHT, THE COMPELLER, THE SUPERIOR. EXALTED IS ALLAH ABOVE WHATEVER THEY ASSOCIATE WITH HIM. HE IS ALLAH. THE CREATOR, THE INVENTOR, THE FASHIONER, TO HIM BELONG THE BEST NAMES. WHATEVER IS IN THE HEAVENS AND EARTH IS EXALTING HIM. HE IS THE EXALTED IN MIGHT, THE WISE”
Majority of us follows the religion that our ancestors followed. But have you ever think that what actually the true religion is? If I put my own self away from all the religions and focus on a true one then I will accept Islam with all my heart and soul because of millions of reason. I have found Islam as a true religion and no religion is so pure and net as Islam is. It covers all aspects of life and help you to understand it. And all the above things that I’ve explained is from the Holy Quran. And it is a book which is undoubtedly authentic. Now in this century non-Muslim scientist are doing researchers for the betterment of humans and proving the things that has been explained in Quran 1400 years ago (this is the biggest prove for this book) and many non-Muslims read Quran to get heart’s peace and mind’s consolation. Every religion has its own books but still no book is that saved as Quran is because Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala promised to save it till the end of the time..
